  • "Euphemus" - 586 tons, Captain: W. Harwood. Departed Gravesend, London 9th October 1856. Arrived Auckland, New Zealand 12 February 1857. Agents: Brown and Campbell. [Source: Southern Cross 13 February 1857]
  • The Euphemus left Gravesend on the 9th October 1856, and had a fair run down channel. She had no north-east trades, and experienced so much light and variable weather that she did not cross the equator till the 47th day out - the 25th November. Two or three days previously Captain Harwood spoke the ship Sussex bound to Melbourne, 42 days out. On the 19th December she passed within sight of Tristan D'Acunha - the weather at that time being so very fine that no less than 26 sail were all within sight of each other. On the 22nd she crossed the meridian of the Cape. Her run to the eastward was a fair one, the ship having passed within Eddystone rock, on the south coast of Van Diemen's Land, on the 29 January. Thence, a continuance of northerly weather retarded the progress of the ship - making it the 9th inst. (Monday) before sighting the Three Kings. She has had light weather on the coast. The Euphemus brings a large number of passengers, chiefly fore-cabin - in all 114 souls, and in excellent health. Only one death has occurred on the voyage - that of a child named Louisa Hamilton, aged 17 months, which died from natural causes on the 30th December. The voyage, though occupying 126 days, has been a very fine one throughout, which indeed, is the cause of the somewhat lengthy passage she has made.
