Shipping to Natal from non-UK ports 1875

Ships arriving at Natal weren't all from British ports, though they formed the greater proportion. This column published in 1875 mentions ships from Adelaide, Calcutta and Zanzibar.

The report on the Natal includes details of her voyage from Cape Town: passengers experienced a variety of weather, such as violent squalls, before arriving at Natal in fine weather.
