The London Times

March 7, 1867 ads: states the Tripoli, for New York, Tuesday, March 19th.
but she did not sail until:

March 27, 1867 Ship News: the Tripoli sailed for New York on March 26
and her arrival was reported:

April 11, 1867: Latest Intelligence. America. New York: "The City of  
Dublin, the Tripoli, and the Peruvian have arrived."

On March 18, 1867 this appeared in the Times:
Liverpool
Up to the despatch of our parcel yesterday afternoon
everything remained perfectly quiet, and
beyond a perhaps rather greater than ordinary
display of shamrock, there was nothing in the streets
to indicate the character of the day. The ironclad
Lord Clyde arrived in the Mersey on Friday night.
The police and the military were on the alert, and
ready to concentrate their forces at any point should
an outbreak really occur during the night. the
police authorities are now persuaded, however, that
serious as the intention of the Fenian leaders may
have been at one time, they have been effectually
cowed by the preparations which have been made.

On March 19,
Liverpool
Liverpool remained peerfectly quiet the whole of Sunday night and yesterday.

However, on the same day there was a report of a hurricane and snow  
and a considerable amount of damage or loss of vessels.

I also checked the New York Times and they report her arrival on April  
10 with 449 passengers but no other notes of interest on her.
