Steerage passengers were carried beginning in 1852. The City of Manchester was chartered to the French government during the Crimean War, and resumed Inman voyages in 1856. She departed London for Calcutta 24 August 1857 as a transport as a result of the Indian Mutiny. By the next year, New York replaced Philadelphia as the American destination. After 20 years of Inman service, the City of Manchester was sold and converted to sail. The ship operated under sail until wrecked in 1876.
