[Source: Palmer List of Merchant Vessels] Note for the PORT of BREMERHAVEN BREMERHAVEN is a Seaport town of Germany in the Free State of Breman, on the right Bank and Estuary of the Weser. The Maryborough Chronicle of the 6th instant reports that the German immigrant ship Humboldt left Hamburg on the 3rd of July, 1873, carrying 379 passengers including 118 children under 12 years of age of whom 18 were infants under 1 year. Soon after sailing, scarlantina appeared on board, but in consequence of the perfect isoation isolation of thoso affwsted, the desease was confined to a comparitavely small portion of the children. 18 of whom were affected -the last on the 4th of October.Three adults were also attacked. Among the numerous children whooping cough also broke out, about 30 of them were affected. Afterwards under the influence of cold weather in the southern latitudes, broncitis arose and carried off some of them. Near the conclusion of the voyage, survey appeared among the adults. this was the natural consequence of neglect of sufficient exercise, to which the women with large familiesare particularilr prone. Water and provisions were of the best quality. A condenser was on board the ship. the deaths on board included one adult female, after confinement: 7 infants under1 year: 9 children under 2 years, mostly of bronchitis: 6 children under 6 years. Apart from the few cases of scurvy already mentioned, the health of the adults was most excellent, no serious desease having occured among them. Eight children were born on board the ship, three of them during her anchorage at White Cliffs, Hervey's Bay, the health officer ordered her to undergo six days quarantine, there having been contagious desease on board. This time was spent in cleaning and boiling everything used by the passengers during the voyage, a practice which is to be commended for all immigrant ships, in order that every possibility of the germs of contagion or of infection being afterwards on land in clothes or bedding may be precluded.
