    (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT)
    QUEENSCLIFF, Friday.
    The North German ship Alardus, 158 days from Hamburg, bound to Brisbane, put in here to-day, in consequence of the loss of her captain, who disappeared from the ship at 4 o'clock yesterday morning. There is nothing lo show whether the occurrence was accidental or suicidal.. The chief officer is suffering from phthisis, and has been incapa- citated from duty since January. The ship came here in order to make fresh arrange- ments for the prosecution of the voyage. She has 339 immigrants on board. Twenty-eight deaths have occurred from various causes during the voyage, inclusive of four newly born infants. The general health of the crew not being considered satisfactory, although no infectious disease is prevalent at present, the health officer ordered the ship into quarantine, where she now lies awaiting the chief medical officer's decision. The Alardus touched at Pernambuco on tho voyage.

    Arrival 28 Apr 1873  Quarantine station, Port Phillip Bay Find all individuals with events at this location 
    The North German ship Alardus, which recently entered Port Phillip Bay, and was placed in quarantine owing to her having illness on board, came up to Hobson's Bay on Saturday afternoon for provisions, having obtained pratique, and left her passengers at the quarantine station, from which place she will again ship them, and convey them to Queensland - their original destination. The Alardus left Hamburg' so long ago as the 14th November, and Immediately met with heavy weather. The Lizard was not passed until 28 days after leaving, and in 21 days more Madeira was reached, the heavy weather continuing. The ship had to call at Periambuco on the 77th day out for water, and remained there two days and a half. The Cape of Good Hope was passed on the 9th March, in lat. 37deg. 30min S., the captain at first Intending to call there, but altering his mind and coming on without doing so Ever since the 10th January the chief officer has been ill, and he is still lying at the quarantine station, and during the whole of the voyage one or two if not more of the crew were on the sick list. To add to the many misfortunes of the passage, the captain was missed in about lat. 39deg. 13min. S. and long. 142deg. 12min. E. He was called up to take his watch at 4 o'clock in the morning, and at 6 o'clock was missed, the only surmise which could be made being that he had fallen overboard. The captain was a married man, and has left a wife and two children. The vessel had as passengers 110 married people, 90 single men, 57 women, and 80 children. Twenty children were born on the voyage, and four died.The vessel is now under the command of Mr. C. W. Ohlrich, who shipped in her as second mate. He expects to remain in Hobson's Bay for five or six days.

    THE ALARDUS AT MARYBOROUGH.
    The immigrants by the Alardus arrived at Maryborough on Friday, June 13, having been brought up by the Queensland, s. , which went down to the Bay for that purpose. The Wide Bay News says -"It was raining steadily when they arrived, and they could not have received a very favorable ímpression of their new home. Some twenty-one individuals went down to Brisbane by the steamer, having friends in Ipswioh and the neighborhood, leaving about 300 souls in the depot here. On looking through the depot we could see nothing in the appearance of the new-comers to account for the disparaging tone in which they were men- tioned by the Melbourno Press. So far from being in rags and showing signs of extreme des-
    titution, they seemed well and comfortably clad, Certainly, as Captain Ohlricht informed us, the day when they arrived in Hobson's Bay was rainy, and the immigrants would hardly have donned their newest clothes, but still the assertion was rather a sweeping one to make on so slenderi a foundation. They seemed to be of very mixed nationality, including Scandinavians, Germans, and Poles. The pure Germans are decidedly in a minority, although as the Poles from Posen are reckoned as Ger- mans their apparent numbers are swelled. The men seemed stalwart fellows and are not quite so fat as some of the previous importations ; some of the women seemed rather weak, as
    might be expected from the long and tedious voyage. The depot was not opened to the pub- lic yesterday, only a few employers anxious to hire servants being admitted. As far as we could judge some of the immigrants have brought sufflciently extravagant notions with them. One lady informed us that one married couple demanded wages at the rate of £100 per annum, and another at £80. These were exceptions, however, as far more reasonable terms were asked. It is very doubtful though whether the immi- grants will accept extremely low wages. The evidence of the enquiry held on board the Alardus has not been published yet, and we can learn but few reliable particulars concerning the voyage. It seems that she is not such a very dull sailing craft, at least Captain Nicoll who brought her from Melbourne says so. Her chief defect seems to have been that she was in-
    sufficiently lighted and ventilated. The long voyage was caused chiefly by head winds which kept her back at first and finally forced her to put into Pernambuco for water, as she had no condensing apparatus on board. Mr. Kirchner it seems boarded her at Hamburg, and he certainly ought to have seen that these defects were remedied. Other complaints were made in our hearing, but just as emphatically contra- dicted, and we are therefore disinclined to pub- lish them, preferring to wait till the evidence taken on the official enquiry is published."
