WILL CONQUER THE SOUTHERN ICY SEA
Departure of the Southern Cross for the Antarctic.
Wellington, N. Z., March 16. --
The Antarctic exploration expedition's steamer Southern Cross has arrived at Port Chalmers, New Zealand, after landing Borchgrevink and his party at Cape Adair, Victoria Land. She reports that all the explorers were in good health when landed.
The steam whaler Southern Cross, having on board the expedition under command of Captain Borchgrevink, which is to make an exploration of the Antarctic continent, sailed from England in the latter part of August last for Cape Adair, South Victoria Land, in the Antarctic circle.
At Cape Adair, according to the programme, Captain Borchgrevink and nine of his fellow explorers, were to be landed and the Southern Cross was then to go back to Hobarttow (sic), returning in the summer of 1899 to pick up the party, who expected to return to England early in 1900.
