SHIP MARINER. The ship Mariner, Captain Frazer a arrived in the bay on Friday, but anchored too late to be reported in our last issue. The Mariner left the Downs on the 2nd January, and thus made the passage rather under sixteen weeks. She brings 141 passengers, including several assisted immigrants who have come to join their friends out here ; among the latter also are a good many Germans. About fifty of the passengers are for Otago, to which port the vessel proceeds when she has discharged her cargo here. The usual average weather has been experienced during the passage out ; and there has been one birth and two deaths — the latter being infants who were sickly when they embarked. A personal inspection of the vessel enables us to report very favourably on the cleanliness and comfort apparent on board; and all of the passengers with whom we have conversed speak in high terms of the captain's treatment of them. The Mariner is, we understand, the first of a new line of vessels recently established by Shaw, Saville, and Co.
We have much pleasure in publishing the following testimonials, which were presented to Captain Frazer shortly after the ship came to an anchor : — We, the undersigned cabin passengers of the ship Mariner, in congratulating her commander, Captain Charles Fraser, on the prosperous termination of our voyage, desire to tender him our united thanks for the courtesy and kindness he has invariably shown us during our passage. We also take this opportunity of expressing our satisfaction with the energy and skill he has displayed in the management of the ship, and our entire confidence in him in his present responsible situation.
