The New Zealand Journal.
London, Saturday, November 7, 8410.

We go to press once more without news from New Zealand. Our latest direct intelligence from Port Nicholson is now no leas than six months and a-half old: that is, we have about twelve weeks' news, and consequently twelve numbers of the New Zealand Gazette, now due. Port Nicholson news, by way of the Bay of Islands, is about three weeks more recent, but still our news is greatly in arrears, and our readers are fairly entitled to expect an ample batch of intelligence by the time our next number goes to press. At that time we also hope to be able to enrich our number with ample details respecting the arrangements between the New Zealand Company and the Government.
In the absence of intelligence we must direct our readers' attention to the interesting report of the proceedings of the Plymouth banquet. The proceedings of the Sydney Council, in reference to the New Zealand Bill, would also be extremely interesting, were it not for the reflection that the new arrangements about to be entered into will make all the Sydney proceedings go for nothing.
