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 over a district lately purchased from the natives, occupying about 1,500 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 of its colonization, has met with the approval of his Grace the Archbishop of Canterbury.
The political relation or 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 privilege 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.

Carson'S Original Anti-Corrosion Paint.
Specially patronised by the Government.
The Anti-Corrosion Paint has been used by the Hon. Board of Ordnance for upwards of half a century, who have proved it to prevent rust or corrosion on Iron longer and better than the very best White Lead or any other description of Paint; and, in consequence of its possessing this invaluable quality, all the Iron Guns and Gun Carriages both for land and sea service have been painted with it for the above period. It will, therefore, be found a very superior preservative of Iron Steam Boats, Iron Bridges, Piers, or any other extensive Iron-Work. It has also been used in great quantities by other public bodies, and by numbers of gentlemen of the first distinction, to preserve Wooden Houses, Farm and other Out buildings, Conservatories, Park Paling, Iron Railing, Compo, &c., Fronts and Tiles to represent slating.
This paint is admirably adapted for preventing the decay of old Stone or Brick Mansions. Churches, or other Public Edifices requiring an effectual defence against the elements, as it will become harder than stone in a few months after it is laid on. It is particularly recommended to West India Proprietors, Emigrants, and others connected with the Colonies, who will find it to stand all climates better than any other Paint hitherto invented. The superiority of the Anti Corrosion to any other Punt may be easily inferred from the simple fact, that its use has always been most strenuously opposed by persons interested in the sale of common Paints.
Colours:—Light Drab, and Yellow Stone, Light and Dark Lead, Copper, Chocolate, and Red, 34s. per cwt. , Invisible Green, 50s. per cwt.; Deep Green, 60s. per cwt.; Oil and brushes.
The Mark-lane Express, in alluding to this Paint, says—"——which, from its intrinsic excellence and durability, has been patronised by the Hon. Board of Ordnance for upwards of half a century, and is held in the highest estimation by numbers of the most influential agriculturists throughout the kingdom."
An eminent writer (Mr. Loudon) speaks of this Paint in the following terms:—"It lasts so long when applied to iron or well-seasoned timber or masonry, as seldom to require a renewal during a man's life-time."
The Original Anti Corrosion Paint is only to be obtained of Walter Carson (Successor to the Inventors), Manufacturer, by appointment, to the Hon. Board of Ordnance, the Hon. East India Company, and the principal London Dock Companies, 15, Tokenhouse-yard, near the Bank, London.
