Early Days—lt is a little-known fact (says the "Dominion") that it was chiefly through the action of one of the Magistrates of Glasgow—Mr John Fleming, of Clairmont—that New Zealand was retained as a British possession. He was about the first, if not the first, man in the kingdom to direot the attention of the Government to the possibilities of New Zealand as ft British settlement. He took up the matter with enthusiasm, and, enlisting the services of such men as Dr Norman Macleod, Sheriff Allison, and 1 o>-d Provost Lumsden, con vened a meeting in the Gkugow Athena-urn on May 15, 1840, which was the means of arousing public attention to the question all over the country, and brought about the annexation of the islands in time to prevent their passing into the hands of the French, It was doubtless the outcome of Glasgow's connection with the appropriation of the islands for Great Britain that New Zealand was largely colonised by Scotsmen. 0.-*, women, in our hours of cisc, Uncertain, Coy. and hard to please ; But when a cough contracts nur brow A ministering angel thou !
