Names stop at Hamburg Lists

Classification: Query
I found a name that might be an ancestor (Hermann Lang) in the Hamburg Lists. He sailed on the S.S. Huddersfield, 9 July 1875 to America via Liverpool. Every name on the list has "New York" listed as the destination. But not one of these names shows up in the NY passenger lists.

I did searches on some of the men listed, to see if they ever naturalized, and one (Hermann Gerndt) was naturalized and listed his arrival as July 1875 in New York. But I can't find him (or anyone else on this Hamburg list) in any of the New York lists.

Is it possible some manifests just got lost or destroyed and can't be found? Any other possible explanations for why these names on the Hamburg list don't show up in NY (or Montreal, Boston, Philadelphia or Baltimore)?

Appreciate any advice ...
