Castaway on the Auckland Isles

Additional Note

Additional Note.

The Times' New Zealand correspondent, in a letter dated Nov. 15, 1865, writes as follows:—

"The Victorian war steamer 'Victoria' put into Otago on the 8th inst. for coals and provisions, having been searching the Auckland Islands for shipwrecked mariners. …. The whole group has, however, been thoroughly searched without success, no trace of human beings, dead or alive, being found. Provisions have been left in various parts of the islands for the use of future castaways."—Times, Jan. 13, 1866.
