LATER EUROPEAN NEWS. ARRIVAL OF THE EUROPEAN. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 12 June 1857

LATER EUROPEAN NEWS. ARRIVAL OF THE EUROPEAN. The Royal Mail steam ship European arrived in Hobson's Bay, on Saturday evening- about eleven o'clock.

Captain Parfitt reports that he arrived at Suez on the 19th April, and that his news vvas forwarded on the same day by the Indian Mail from Alexandria, and would reach England on June 27th—that is, in fovty\x=req-\ three days from Melbourne. On her return, the European left Suez on the night of the 27th April, arrived at Aden 3rd May, and left on the same day j arrived at Point de Galle on the 12th May, and was detained there until the 15th, in consequence of finding two of the Peninsular and Oriental Company's steamers coaling at the same time.
