Our Prospects.

An Auckland citizen who is now on a visit to England, writing by the San Fran : cisco mail, says;—'! Since my visit to America and England I am more than ever impressed with the exceptional advantages we possess over other countries, and, in spite of the terrible mess we have been led into by Vogel and others, New Zealand must come to the front before long. I notice by a circular issued the other day that the arrivals of wool from New Zealand, for the sales commencing on the 18th inst., far exceed those of any other colony, and are almost equal to Victoria and New South Wales combined. Then, again, lam assured that we have never sufficient frozen meat herej consequently mutton from other countries gets the benefit of our good name. On the arrival of one of the recent direct steamers from New Zealand over 500cwt of cheese was purchased by one firm, who acknowledge it to be superior to anv of the American cheese, which has a fine "'reputation here.' This cheese of ours was subsequently sold as American cheese and realised a capital price. The same plan has been adopted for months East, but it is gradually leaking out, and efore long the fraud will be exposed. I omitted to mention that on the Saturday before last New Zealand lamb was sold at 9d per lb. This was just prior to the arrival of the ship Wellington. This vessel landed a full cargo of lambs, and prices have since dropped to 8d and B£d. The day is not far distant when there will be a great demand from Londoners for New Zealand mutton, beef, butter, cheese, fruit, etc.; and with' all this looming ahead we cannot long remain under a cloud. When I get time I intend to devote my energies to making exhaustive inquiries as to the disposal of New Zealand produce. At the present time I know our settlers are not fairly treated, and that people at this end are making fortunes out of them." '
