CITY COLONIZAL SOCIETY. CENTItAL EMIIORATION OFFICE, CORNIIILL, LONDON. E STABLISHED for the purpose of procuring and communicating authentic information in regard to the sale and purchase of lands, facilitating the departure of passengers, and the transmission of small parcels and iecrchaudise, obtaining free passages for ermgirailts, procuring good servants for colonists, providing outfits, etlecting marine and life assurances, and of rendering efficient assistance, at a moderato commission, to all persons connected wvith, or proceeding to HER MIAJESTY'S COLONIES. Under the management of MESSRS. SMYTH AND EVANS, 103, CORNIrILL, LONDON, (Late M1essrs. Ladbrtoke's Bank.) Fromn the vast extent and still increasing impor tnnce of our colonial possessions, ercating a large additional field for the investment of capital. and from tlhe interesting fact of those colonies becoming the lhome of our relatives and friends, the necessity has arisen for concentrating, in one establishment in London, all information connected with them. The colonist, the merchant, and the emigratnt, are all interested in being correctly informed of every thing which tends to advance tihe prosperity of the immediate sphere of their operations; their couute niace and support, are, therefore, very earnestly solicited towards carrying out the objects of this es tablisshment,, projected for their benefit. Ifere may the emigrant obtain, OGRATUITOUSLY, such infornia tion as lie can rely on, and oni which lie may pro ceed with confidence to that colony which is to be his future residence and his field for enterprise, Itis also believed that this establishment will be found a usefil 'lthough humble auxiliary to the various institutions now enagged in prosecuting, with so much zeal, the higher objects connected with the best interests of mankind in general, but more par ticularly of the colonists, For the purpose of rendering the establishment as useful as possible, the following, ami0ong others, will be its objects:- RlcoArmN Roonrs--which will be open, to sub scribers, from ten isn the morning to six in the evening, supplied with the Lonidon mornilg and evening rnewspapers, and other periodicals of the day, and with Australian and other colonial news papers and periodicals-the latest pamplilets and most valuable works oni the colonies, &c.; likewise a register of arrivals and departures of ships, list of pu'sscigers, nid passengers expectedl to arrive.

To the Independent Electors of Port Phillip. G ENTL.EMEN,-I have the honor to an nounce to you my intention to offer my self as one of the candidates for the representa tion of your province; in theforthcomingelectioei oftmemlbers for the new Legislative Assembly. The groeunds piion which I venture to layclaiin to your confidence in my behalf are, aresidence of several years in the colony, and an opportunity of becoming intimately actluainted with its gen eral interest. I am also deeply concerned in the welfare of your province in particular, and possess the strongest of all incentives forexertion inc your ehalnf, in tlie fact; that iy personal in terest are closely interwovenfc with, and depcn dant upon, those of Airstralia Felix titlarge. 'lhe advantiges to lie derived fiom thecpossess ion of the constitutional privilege now about to be accorded to the colony will, I am persuaded, he most sensibly felt by those districts, the mosti re moved frome the preseiit seat ofgovernment; by none so much, as by the residents of Port Phillip. A means will at length be aiforded, of urging the just claims of the province, for a fair participa tion in all grants for public works,-the con struction of ronas and bridges, and all such other public improvements, the accomplishment of whichl is necessary for developing the resources of an infant country. The province of Australia Felix and the city of Mdelbourne demand a muchl larger share of legislative aid and protection than they hrave hitherto rcceived; and I sne per suaded that constant and vigilant attention will be required, on the part of your representatives; to secure for their constituents, their due weight in the Legislative Chamber. SIn Australia Felix, in commoni with the rest of the colony, it is, I sm persuaded, only by the introduction of abundtlat a n'd cheap labour that the present cmbarrasments of the settler can be overcome, and a state of prosperity reinduced: Cheap and abundant labour, with its attendant consequences,-redictieon in the cost of produec tion of wool,-the giving a value to lhnd whicl! without polulation is valueless,-and the thus rendering agricultural. and pastoral pursuits a means of profitable investment for British cn pitalists,-are essentially required to call forth the resources of Australia Felix;, aild to give to her that degree of imiportafice, which her fertility and her vast capabilities must1 sooner or l?neer inevitably secure for ler: On this all importfait pooiit, filece, the copliuo iltrodueclion of Eiuropen labour, I shall, should I ie honored by becoming your representative; feel that the present salvation and future pros pcrity of the country depend ; andI shall regard it as the most imperative of all duties, to direct liy attention to those means, whereby at copiolus. and continued stream of einigration front the mnother country may be kept tip: .
