  • 26 Sep 1883, ARRIVAL OF THE HESPERUS WITH IMMIGRANTS.
    The selection of the Hesperus as a transport vessel for emigrants was a wise one, and it is seldom a more suitable ship has arrived here. She has splendid height between decks, and an excellent outfit of berths and bunks. The ventilation throughout has also proved as nearly perfect as possible. The after end of the vessel was devoted to the single females, of whom there were said to be 143 adults, but amongst them were several girls accompanying their parents, and some women coming out to husbands here. This department was under the matron, Miss Davidson, who, under the superintendence of Dr. Freeland, succeeded in keeping excellent order amongst her charges. The midship compartment was occupied by 84 families, all provided with fair and reasonable space, one feature being a gangway around the bunks between the fittings and ship's side. Cleanliness was apparent throughout, the doctor having positively set his face against anything but dry scrubbing. There were 117 single men in the fore end, and most excellent quarters they had, although it is much to be regretted that the old school system of hammocks in this compartment could not be retained to as a mode of economising space and promoting cleanliness. Of the general conduct of the people the master and Dr. Freeland spoke in most eulogistic terms, and the very best feeling prevailed throughout the voyage between officers and immigrants. Before the conclusion of the passage a very complimentary testimonial was presented to the Master, and when he left the vessel at the bell buoy there was an outburst of genuine British cheering.
    Throughout the passage the people enjoyed excellent health only one adult and five children died; but none from contagious or infectious diseases. Accordingly the vessel on arrival was admitted to immediate pratique, and very shortly afterwards Mr. Duffield, the immigration agent, proceeded on board to make his official muster. In a vessel with fewer people on board it is practicable to muster and land them the same day, but as the Hesperus has brought a very heavy complement, 603, it was decided to postpone the debarkation till the following day, and orders were given accordingly. The ship herself looked in excellent order, quite as well as on her first visit to the Port, save that the very fine saloon has been shorn of its fair proportions by taking away all the after portion for the accommodation of the single women.
    Captain Harry, who is still in command, reports leaving the South-West India Docks on Wednesday, July 5, having two tugs' services for a start away. At 4 p.m. the same day passed Gravesend, and at 3 a.m. next day discharged the river pilot, Mr. Gray, in the Downs. At 3. 50 the vessel was off the South Foreland, and having fine weather at 6 p.m. she discharged the tug Sussex; at 11, when abreast of St. Catherine's, she discharged the tug Middlesex, and set all sail to a light wind from south-west by west. At 10 p.m. the Hesperus received the Plymouth pilot on board when about ten miles east of the Start Point, and at 10 30 a.m. on July 7 anchored at Catwater. The wind was south-west, with attendant heavy sea, and on July 9 the ship's company was mustered and inspected by the medical officer, Dr. Eccles. Next morning was devoted to adjusting compasses, and for that purpose the vessel was towed to the swinging buoy. On the 11th the emigrants' luggage was put on board and the heavy part stowed away below, and in addition there was a boat inspection by the proper Board of Trade officer, who expressed himself favorably impressed with the celerity observed by the officers and men in getting the boats manned and launched. On Thursday, July 12, the people were embarked under the personal supervision of Sir Arthur Blyth, the Agent-General for the colony, and Captain Smith, R.N., the dispatching officer. On July 13, at 6 a.m. the anchor was weighed, and the tug at once made fast and took the ship out clear of Penlee Point, when all sail was made to a fine west-south-west wind. At sunset when between the Eddystone and Deadman Point the wind blew from north-west, and with a fresh breeze and squally weather the ship got clear of the Channel, but only to fall in with light variables for a week. On July 22 she had the north-east trade wind, but it proved changeable, both in force and direction, and the calm belt was reached on July 29, in latitude 11 north, longitude 28 west, when the weather became very hot and oppressive. After a few days the wind veered to the south-west, and so continued till crossing the equator on August 6, in longitude 28' 24'. The southerly trades were so far ahead that the vessel had to tack when off the Brazilian coast, a position in which the master was never before placed during his twenty years' experience. This stage of the voyage was marked by most unfavorable winds, and subsequently when the master shaped a course down south he resolved not to go beyond the forty- first parallel in running over the easting so as not to imperil the health of the people by the intense cold. There was very little fast sailing done until crossing the prime meridian on August 26, although there was such a continuation of fair weather that one of the ship's boats might have made the voyage. After that point the speed was got up to 288 knots per day, and on August 30 she did 301, and on September 7 made the crack day's work of the voyage by bowling off 353 knots. With the exception of the three days indi- cated the vessel never kept up to top speed for a continued period. The longitude of Cape Leuwin was passed on September 19, and then moderate airs took her to Cape Borda, which was sighted at 2 a.m. on the 24th, and passed at 7.30.

    How a seventeen-year-old refugee from Czechoslovakia had been adopted by the boys of Trinity Grammar School was described by Mr. J. J. J. Leppitt, a master of the school, at yesterday's conference of teachers arranged by the League of Nations Union. He said this move was part of the study of modern world affairs by intermediate certificate pupils, who had received considerable benefit through contact and discussion with the immigrant. "Their new school fellow is interesting in more ways than one," Mr. Leppitt added, "as one or two of the boys found to their cost when they gave him the Nazi salute."12

  • 21 Apr 1897, A sad accident, attended with sudden and fatal consequences, happened at Dandenong on Tuesday. A number of boys were playing cricket near the Bangholm junction, John Lippett being at the wicket to the bowling of another boy named Mills. During play the latter de livered a ball to Lippett which the latter apparently thought would pass him, as he merely made a slight movement with his head in order to avoid the ball. In this he, was unsuccesful for he received a blow on the side of the jaw, which caused him to reel and finally fall down. Thomson was at once sent for, but before he arrived at the scene of the accident Lippett was dead. Universal horror felt at such a terrible experience, and much sympathy is felt for Mrs. Lippett whose husband is at present in Western Australia. The deceased was a great favorite with his companions, and is remembered for the smart manner in which he acted in the recent cantata playing one of the seven dwarfs. The occurence of course, was purely accidental.4

    A fatal accident occurred to-day. John Lippett, a boy 13 years of age, was playing cricket with a number of other boys, and whilst batting was struck on the head with a cricket ball, bowled by another boy about the same age. The blow produced immediate insensibility. Young Lippett was at once removed to Dr Barclay Thomson's surgery, but by the time they reached there life was extinct.5

    Captain Harry, who is still in command, reports leaving the South-West India Docks on Wednesday, July 5, having two tugs' services for a start away. At 4 p.m. the same day passed Gravesend, and at 3 a.m. next day discharged the river pilot, Mr. Gray, in the Downs. At 3. 50 the vessel was off the South Foreland, and having fine weather at 6 p.m. she discharged the tug Sussex; at 11, when abreast of St. Catherine's, she discharged the tug Middlesex, and set all sail to a light wind from south-west by west. At 10 p.m. the Hesperus received the Plymouth pilot on board when about ten miles east of the Start Point, and at 10 30 a.m. on July 7 anchored at Catwater. The wind was south-west, with attendant heavy sea, and on July 9 the ship's company was mustered and inspected by the medical officer, Dr. Eccles. Next morning was devoted to adjusting compasses, and for that purpose the vessel was towed to the swinging buoy. On the 11th the emigrants' luggage was put on board and the heavy part stowed away below, and in addition there was a boat inspection by the proper Board of Trade officer, who expressed himself favorably impressed with the celerity observed by the officers and men in getting the boats manned and launched. On Thursday, July 12, the people were embarked under the personal supervision of Sir Arthur Blyth, the Agent-General for the colony, and Captain Smith, R.N., the dispatching officer. On July 13, at 6 a.m. the anchor was weighed, and the tug at once made fast and took the ship out clear of Penlee Point, when all sail was made to a fine west-south-west wind. At sunset when between the Eddystone and Deadman Point the wind blew from north-west, and with a fresh breeze and squally weather the ship got clear of the Channel, but only to fall in with light variables for a week. On July 22 she had the north-east trade wind, but it proved changeable, both in force and direction, and the calm belt was reached on July 29, in latitude 11 north, longitude 28 west, when the weather became very hot and oppressive. After a few days the wind veered to the south-west, and so continued till crossing the equator on August 6, in longitude 28' 24'. The southerly trades were so far ahead that the vessel had to tack when off the Brazilian coast, a position in which the master was never before placed during his twenty years' experience. This stage of the voyage was marked by most unfavorable winds, and subsequently when the master shaped a course down south he resolved not to go beyond the forty- first parallel in running over the easting so as not to imperil the health of the people by the intense cold. There was very little fast sailing done until crossing the prime meridian on August 26, although there was such a continuation of fair weather that one of the ship's boats might have made the voyage. After that point the speed was got up to 288 knots per day, and on August 30 she did 301, and on September 7 made the crack day's work of the voyage by bowling off 353 knots. With the exception of the three days indi- cated the vessel never kept up to top speed for a continued period. The longitude of Cape Leuwin was passed on September 19, and then moderate airs took her to Cape Borda, which was sighted at 2 a.m. on the 24th, and passed at 7.30.

William Brazure Bennett

M, #6502, b. 23 Jun 1811, d. 14 Jun 1895
Note* It was while I was researching my great-grandfather, William Brazure Bennett, that I came across the 'exiles'. ". . . exile - transporting of prisoners after prison discipline at home." Surely two years silent and solitary 'meditation' on their past sins and reading the Bible, religious tracts and sermons, would produce a new man, even if in time it appeared that mental deterioration was as likely as reform. Pentonville was 'the portal to a penal colony' when that great institution was opened in 1842; if the prisoner there was 'moulded for a better frame of mind' he would be sent out with a ticket-of-leave.
