We have received a copy ff the first number Of the Anglo-Sew Zcaiander, a new aspirant to the patronage of those who are interested in the progress and development of the resources of the Australian colonies. It ia conducted and edited by Mr G. M. Reid, a iouroalwt well known in New Zealand for bis enterprise, experience, and ability, in hi 3 profession, than whom there is no me more likely to make thi3 fortnightly journal a literary and financial success. It proposes to be a jnu«nal conducted by colonists for colonists, and to prejudge from the varied anil well selectsd subjects with which it deal" in this first number, one can confidently anticipate for it a career of success an-l use fulness 3 peri or to that of many aimi : ar journals. It has been for a long time a desideratum to have a paper published in London taring a direct connection and interest in the affairs of this young, bat important, colony. The Ans»loNew Zealander gives every indication of supplying this acknowledged want in an efficient, and attractive manner, and it is to be hoped the support of the colonists ard of tfi<>3« »saociated in business with the colony will be liberally bestowed upon tha enterprise—an enterprise involving considerable expense and risk. We :rc pleased to notice that, in respect of the number and quality of the advertisements, the proprietors have reason to be gratified There over 20 pag-s occupied by advertising notices, and some of them, devoted to hotels and drapc-y establishments, are ■veritable picture galleries, giving in a pictorial form a good idea of the handgome and costly buildings now erected in the cities of a young country not long since a waste and howling wilderness and the abode of savages. The j-nrnal ia p-inted on good paper, the letter type is thoroughly appropriate, and altogether the " get up" is mjbly creditable to ercryoue connected with the venture. As a med om for disseminating reliable information about New Zealand and its capabilities *3 a field for emigration to the people of Great Britain it can assuredly be recommended. "The leading articles in the number under tevicw are written intelligently and forcibly, and the remarks made relative to the treatment of the Maoris by the coloty are concisely graphic and moderate in tone. Under the heading of " Fnblic Lands in Ctago, New Zealand,'* there is a letter from Jlr Robert Stout, one ot the Commissioners of the Land Beard of Otago, giving a succinct account of the various systems under whioh ths land 3 are obtainable—an account that ought to be of singular service to intending iai migrants. We can cordially recomm* nd the Anrto-New Zealander to onr friends in the colony and in the Mother Country.
