A few parcels of wheat intended tor sale have gone on" at a reduced price ; 13s wa« obtained on Tuesday with difficulty for a sample that four days previous would bave readily fetched 16s, but tint is no criterion to judge of the market.

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 4 August 1840

NEW ZEALAND. THE fifth and sixth numbers of the Nevi Zealand Gazette -have just come to hand, and, so far as we can judge from their con tents, the settlers at Port Nicholson were progressing as well as can be expected within so short a time. Below we give the most important extracts : The Union Bank's paraphernalia including several casks of coin had arrived, and a bank lo be called the Ne« Zealand Bank, with a capital of £50,000 was on the point of formation, an that there will be no want of «leans to carry on specu lation. No -arrivals fi om the Bay of Islande, and con sequently no-intelligence of the doings ot Lieutenant Governor Hobson, but it ts probable that the capital will be at the Thames. We greatly doubt, says the Gazette, if the colonists have made any estimate pf the quantity of building materials which will be required imme diately the town acres are in -the possession of their proprietors. .
