The Directors of the Plymouth Company of New Zealand hereby give notice, that the priority of Choice for the whole of the Town Sections (2,200 in number) having been decided, 600 numbers of choice, ranging from 46 to 2,199, have been selected from those which have fallen to the Company; and 100 of these choices, added to 100 50-acre Rural Sections, are now offered exclusively to Colonists who depart with the first expedition, or. within four months; a second set of 100 to Colonists who depart with the second expedition, or within six months; and a third set of 100 to Colonists who depart with the third expedition, or within eight months from this date respectively.
Each separate set of purchasers will draw for priority of choice as between themselves, and the first set will first choose at pleasure out of 600, then the second out of 600, and, lastly, the third out of 400, of the numbers above referred to.
The range of choice offered by the Directors will enable purchasers drawing consecutive numbers to choose Town Sections, adjoining, in many instances, to the extent of an acre, and in some of an acre and a half. The Rural Sections may in all cases be chosen adjoining, to any extent, in the order of presenting the Land-orders in New Zealand.
The price of each double Land-order for the United Sections is a deposit of £20, to be paid on application, £25 three days before the order of choice is drawn, of which 21 days' notice will be given, and the balance on delivery of the Land-order, or on embarkation. An addition has been made to the Emigration Fund, from which liberal passage allowances are made; and a special fund is set apart for extra allowance to capitalists.
Printed Particulars of the allowances in detail, with the numbers open for choice, and other requisite information, may be had on application to the Secretary; to John Ward, Esq., New Zealand House, London; or to any Agent of the Company.

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, Bishopsgate-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.

67, Bishopsgate-street Within, Established 1780.
J. J. Turner begs to suggest to Families going abroad the necessity of providing a supply of Biscuits, Rusks, &c.; for the voyage, as in many instances, from the effects of sea-sickness, Biscuits and Rusks are the only nutriment that can be taken, and the ships' supply is generally of a very indifferent quality; likewise, from the price of Biscuits in the Colonies being three and four hundred per cent. higher than James Turner's prices, it will materially affect the comfort and economy of Families taking a sufficient supply.
Turner's Superior Mixed Fancy Biscuits may be had in the cases containing 5lbs. at 6s. 6d., 9 1/2 lbs. at 10s. 6d. Fine Captains' Biscuits in cases of 10lbs. at 6s. 6d., 15lbs. at 10s. each, cases included. A great variety of boxes always on hand, may be filled with a selection to suit the taste of the purchasers.
Turner's Presburger Zweiback, or Preshurg Wine Biscuit, in canisters, at 2s. and 6s. 6d. each, of a very superior rich, light, and delicious flavour and crispness, which they will retain in any climate.
Superior Rusks, Tops and Bottoms, Spice Nuts, Imperial Spice Gingerbread, &e.
Turner's Prepared Biscuit Powder for making superior Infants' Food, in canisters, at 2s. each, and 1 1/2lb. packages at 10d. per lb. Manufactured by James Turner, Wholesale and Export Biscuit Baker.
