SS New World
Captain Wakeman
From New York


Daily Alta California, San Francisco, Friday Morning, July 12, 1850


The Steamship New World, Capt. Wakeman, arrived from New York yesterday morning, via Cape Horn and Panama.

It will be recollected that she sailed from New York on the 10th of February. She touched at Rio Janeiro during the time the yellow fever was raging there and lost fifteen of her crew. She left Valparaiso on the 11th of May, and Panama on the 20th of June, stopping at Acapulco and San Diego. She brought up 217 passengers.

The Oregon had not arrived at Panama when the New World left.

The Steamship Isthmus of Law’s line, sailed for this port twelve hours before the N.W. When off Cape Corrientes, the New World experienced a severe gale.

The New World put into San Diego for coal but could get none. She went to San Pedro, California, and received 30 tons from a vessel in that port. The gale she experienced, lasted 36 hours, it broke a steam chest, which put three feet of water in the hold. That forced her into a cove for repairs.


Note: The Daily Alta California lists these passengers as being "from Panama to San Francisco," but also notes states of origin.
