Since the publication of the resolutions of the 20th March last, in which the general designs and objects of this Society were set forth, the exertions of the Committee have been directed to procure, through the assistance of his Grace the Archbishop of Canterbury, the consent of her Majesty's Government to the consecration of a Bishop, and the erection of an Episcopal See at the Town of Wellington, in Port Nicholson, the diocese belonging to which would be situate on the southern extremity of the settlement, and extend ever a district lately purchased from the natives, occupying about 1,540 square miles.
The Committee rejoice in knowing that this design, which is limited to providing the funds requisite for planting a branch of our Apostolical and Episcopal Church in a new Colony at the very commencement or its colonization, has met with the approval of his Grace the Archbishop of Canterbury.
The political relation of New Zealand to this country has prevented, for the present, her Majesty's Government from taking into consideration the plans of this Society for the establishment of an Episcopal See in the Colony now forming at Wellington; but the Committee having received from the New Zealand Company the offer of a large grant of land towards the endowment of a Bishopric, besides the promise of £1,200 to provide the passage of free labourers to be employed in its cultivation, upon condition that the Society purchase a like extent of land for the same purpose, the Committee are of opinion that it is their duty to take advantage of this liberal offer, and to endeavour to obtain, without delay, from the friends of the Church, the sum of £2,000, which, though far short of the whole sum which will be required to carry out the Society's design, will yet enable them to meet the proposal of the Company, and to become possessed in trust, for the use of the Church, of a tract of land amounting to 4,000 acres. The Committee are confident that the step which they propose to take will prove the most effectual means that can be, under existing circumstances, devised for the erection of the proposed Bishopric, and for realizing to the Colonists at Port Nicholson the prospect of being in the full enjoyment of all those spiritual privileges and blessings which they would have possessed in their native land.
Subscriptions, for the general purposes of the Society, are received at Messrs. Smith, Payne, and Smith's, Lombard-street; Messrs. Twining, Strand; and Messrs. Hammersley, Pall-mall; and by the Secretary. to whom all communications are to be addressed, post-paid, and of whom also may be had full particulars of the plans and objects of this Society.

Capital £1,000,000, divided into 10,000 Shares of £100 each.
The Shares will be issued in two series of 5,000 each; the second series not to be appropriated until the business of the Bank requires their allotment, and the holders of the first series to have the preference, pro rota, in their distribution.

Extracts from works on Emigration.
"For the purchase of Ironmongery, it is necessary to be very particular as to the description, sizes, and quality; what you want, therefore, should be procured of a person who well knows the market; if the things are not the patterns in use, they will not be even looked at, much less purchased."—Widdowson on Van Die men's Land, page 42.
"The articles to the above patterns may be seen and bought at Messrs. Richards, Wood, and Co."—Widdowson on Van Diemen's Land, page 41.
"I bought my Ironmongery of Messrs. Richards, Wood, and Co., No. 117, Bishops gate-street Within, and upon comparison of invoices with some of my friends in the Colony, I found I had been well used, and the quality of things furnished me was excellent; they had been for years in the Australian trade and understand the kind of articles required in these Colonies."—Gouger's South Australia, page 126.
