Alison,
If you look at the continuity of the dates from 30 May 1859 all engagements are continuous until 24 January to 21st February,  this period is still showing him serving on Asia, It may be that he was in jail but serving his time in the "Brig" on board ship, hence his "fair" conduct.
The abbreviation at the bottom I think is for arrival  and then invalid
