Hi Liz

 Must admit I've never noticed this ......... Just had a very
quick  check ..........

1866 were some 1260 shipping  arrivals to Port Jackson
1870                   1050                     "
1877                   1320                     "

Hard to gauge what to judge by.   Be a huge array of variables
from ship wrecks to crew shortages, fares  increasing,
quite possible for some shipping  records did not survive


Bye
