THE AUCKLAND ISLANDS. (From the Hobart Town " Britannia," Nov. 22.)
The barque " Samuel Enderby,' 1 Capt, Hendorson, from England, 17th August, anchored off Crayfish Point on Monday evening, having on board Charles Enderby, Esq., the well known and much respected merchant and ship.-owner of London, who has been appointed Lieutenant-Governor of the settlement about to be formed at the Auckland Islands, of which Mr. Enderby and a company for the promotion of the South Sea Fisheries by British capital and industry have obtained a grant. He is accompanied by his secretary, a Mr. Smith, and a medical gentleman. There are also about fifty persons on board, principally married families, who intend trying their fortunes in the new colony. Having been on board several hours, we have authority for stating, that great satisfaction was expressed by the passengers generally, at the treatment they had received from the Lieutenant-Governor and the captain and officers of the vessel. Mr. Cleburne supplied about six tons of fresh supplies of all things likely to make those on board comfortable in every way during the remainder of the voyage, which will be, probably, a week. The " Enderby" was to sail yesterday morning at daylight. In an early number we will give particulars as to what was expected by the Company promoting this particular scheme of colonization, merely observing now, that in its pecuniary interests it is entirely free from British Government controul. Two other ships from England for the Auckland Islands are on their way, on board of wlucfr is an Assistant Commissioner-.
