Re: [TSL] "Electric" Hamburg to Melbourne 1856

There were other vessels by this name. I see the arrival at Gravesend  
on May 13, 1856 of the "Electric, the Queen Victoria, and the Joseph  
Weir, all from the Mauritius".

On Sept 24, 1856 there is the sailing of the "Electric, from Batavia"

There is also a ship called the Electric Flash. However, searching on  
Electric pulls up hundreds of hits due to the "Electric Telegraph" of  
the time.
