To the Editor of the New Zealand Colonist. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 22 September 1842
To the Editor of the New Zealand Colonist. &nbsp; &nbsp; Sir,- In the Gazette of last Saturday, I observe a paragraph, in which it is stated that Dr. Selwyn (meaning I presume, the Lord Bishop) declined visiting any of our "Literary Establishments." Although &nbsp; not a very literary character myself, I feel curious to ascertain where those establish- ments are situate, their nature, &c., and any other information regarding them it may be in your power to afford. By stating &nbsp; these particulars in your journal, you will confer an obligation upon the inhabitants of Port Nicholson generally, and in- dividually upon your obedient servant, &nbsp; OBSERVER. [We are sorry to be obliged to state our ignorance of the nature, locality, and even existance, of the literary establishments mentioned by our contemporary. Our correspondent had better apply for in- formation to the fountain head, and whatever particulars he may obtain, shall be w...
NEW PLYMOUTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 22 September 1842
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; NEW PLYMOUTH. Intelligence from New Plymouth, reached Wellingtonon Wednesday last, by the Messrs. Aubrey. These young gentle- men, sons of Colonel Aubrey, of Devonshire, came overland on foot, and have been a fortnight on their way. The present con- dition and prospects of the settlement, which has always presented the greatest advantages to the agriculturist of any New Zealand settlement, continue to be most satisfactory. Many capitalists have commenced the cultivation of the suburban and rural sections in earnest. Live stock has been imported in sufficient quantities to supply the present demand, and it is sanguinely hoped, that every short period will elapse, before the settlers produce enough to support themselves. This we conceive, to be the first and best proof of the prosperity of the settlement. The settlers in this part of the New Zealand Company's territory, have recently had some dif...
