NEW ZEALAND. WE some time since apprised our readers that the anxious efforts of the New Zealand speculators to extort a favourable report from the Select Committee of the House of Commons had met with a signal defeat. By some unaccountable influence which we may eventually be able to explain, the estimable Lord Eliot has been induced to yoke himself to their gilded car, under the driving of that experienced whip Mr. Edward Gibbon Wakefield : and, accord- ingly, the latter functionary, who has long been well known upon the road, having furnished his Lordship with an approved schedule of the only terms that can render the concern a profitable one (including fees to coachman and guard,) the noble off-leader sub- mitted the said document for the adoption of the committee, to be recommended to Parliament ; but the document happened to be rejected by a majority of two to one. The members of that impartial tri- bunal were neither to be coerced nor cajoled : so, instead of voting for Mr. W...
