The DILHAREE departed from London on 12 October 1874 and arrived in Auckland on 16 January 1875, with Captain R McNeilly in command.



Transcribed from the Auckland Star, 16 January 1895. Page 3






A barque was signalled early this morning, but, owing the southerly wind, she was has not been able to make the harbour up to the time of our going to press. At two o'clock her number was made out, and she proved to be the barque Dilharee from London, with immigrants. Many were much surprised in conse­quence of believing the Dilharee to be a ship, but had they studied the expected list of the Star they would have seen it mentioned all along as a barque. The Dilharee has been a ship, but she has been altered to that of a barque. It is nearly certain that the Health Officer and Immigration Officer will go off to her this evening. The Dilharee left London October 12th, and is consequently 106 days out. She comes consigned to the agents of the New Zealand Shipping Co.
