The New Zealand Journal, Saturday, November 07 (1840)

The Colonial Gasette of Wednesday has an article entitled. "A New Leaf of Colonial-office Statesmanship," in which that paper—ever ready to find fault where blame is due—enumerates three cases of praiseworthy conduct on the part of the Colonial-office, namely—
The removal of Colonel Gawler from the Government of South Australia, and the appointment of Captain Grey in his place.
The ready manner in which Lord John Russell afforded the Western Australian Company an opportunity of exercising their right of selection in the newly-discovered country of Swan River; and,—
The "magnanimity" of Lord John Russell in the case of New Zealand, as explained in Mr. Wakefield's speech at the Plymouth Meeting.
