Office, No* 1, Adam Street, Adelphi. -This Company has been formed for the purpose of employing capital in the purchase and re-sale of lands in New Zealand, and the promotion of emigration to that country. A description of these Islands as a field for British colonization, has been rendered unnecessary by the labours of the New Zealand Association of 1837, who collected and disseminated very ample information on the subject. The sole aim of that Society was to induce the legislature to apply to New Zealand the peculiar system of colonization which has proved so eminently successful in South Australia, and to make provision for guarding the native inhabitants from the evils to which they have hitherto been exposed by their intercourse with Europeans of every class. Her Majesty's Government, however, objected to all legislation for -these ends, except on one condition, to which the Society could not assent. The proposed condition . was, that the Society, which had excluded from its objects all speculation for private gain, should become a joint-stock company and engage in undertakings witb a view to profit. This condition was declined, as being at variance with the declared character of that Society; and the result has been the formation of the present Company, in a form consistent with the condition thus required by her Majesty's Government. The purchase and improvement of waste lands in New Zealand has been already carried on to a great extent, and with much advantage, by missionaries and others, who have settled in the country, as well as by persons residing in the adjacent Australian Colonies ; and such an operation upon an enlarged scale is the proposed object of the New Zealand Land Company. The attention and business of the Company will be confined to the purchase of tracts of land, — the promotion of emigration to those tracts directly from the United Kingdom, — the laying out of settlements
