Grants from the Crown are immediately to be given to the purchasers of land in the Nelson settlement. This will be highly satisfactory information to all those who are interested in the land question. We have have had a plentiful harvest, all safely housed in the fine dry weather of the last five or six weeks, and we are ready for a good soaking shower or two, as our gardens and paddocks are getting burnt up. All sorts of farmer's produce will fetch fair remunerating prices this year ; and we have, as settlers, very little to grumble about. Unless somebody should tread on our coat, wo shall not be able to get up a row. A dinner was given to F. D. Bell, Esq., on the cessation of his labours as the New Zealand Company's agent, and was attended by a highly respectable and numerous body of settlers.
