Incident on arrival of this ship at Natal:

We are informed by a passenger who was on board at the time, that when the John Line drifted from her anchor (through the loss of a shackle-pin) all were asleep on board, no watch being set or at least not kept; and her change of position was never discovered even by the officers till they turned out at day light.
