Journey Notes

The Vesta.- The brig Vesta, from Hamburg, with cargo and passengers, arrived yesterday after a passage of 110 days. A fatal accident occurred on board to a child, when off the Cape of Good Hope, in consequence of some passengers removing the covering of the hatch during a gale, which falling 'tween decks unfortunately came in contact with a child, who died from the injuries it sustained. The Vesta is a very fine brig, and quite new. Register 1/12/1856
