[Her Majesty's steamer Triton]

Source: The Illustrated London News, Jan 19, 1861, p.57

Her Majesty's iron paddle-wheel steamer Triton, Lieutenant and Commander H. Burton, from the west coast of Africa, arrived at Woolwich yesterday week to be dismantled and paid off. The successful services of the Triton in capturing six valuable prizes freighted with human traffic will put the officers and crew in possession of various sums of money, independently of their ordinary pay, in the following ratio—namely, about 1500 commander's share; from 300 to 400 to each of the commissioned officers; and a proportionate bounty to each of the warrant officers, men, and boys belonging to the ship.
