16 Mar 1847 At Upolu, which at the time was visited by a hurricane which caused much damage. Fortunately the barometer had been read beforehand and the Juno had taken precautions which prevented her being damaged, whereas other vessels were blown ashore, where trees and houses were blown over and the breadfruit crop destroyed.

Capt Freemantle, sailed form Bombay for this station (Australia), prior to the departure of the Madras, the admiral having given up his intention of detaining her in India. She may therefore be expected very shortly to relieve the Calliope, which will return to England directly upon the arrival of the Juno. We understand that Captain Fitzgerald will allow shippers of treasure to take advantage of this opportunity.
