The Second Number will be published in New Zealand as soon after the arrival of the Colony as it may be found possible to print it, which, it is hoped, will be within a fortnight of the disembarkation of the Colonists ; and as ships pass through Cook's Straits almost daily, on their return from Australia to Europe, it is expected Ihat immediate and frequent opportunity will be afforded for transmitting the second and subsequent numbers to England.
