The very great importance of the undertak ing as leading to results,and in all probability to discoveries, 'he beut-hl of which are at preseni unforeseen, but which, like the open ing of the Murray to this Province, may pave the way to a high rond from hence to Western Australia, will, it is hoped, meet with the support of the public winch undertakings of great natiot al interest deserve,and which best evince the enterprise and well doing of a rising colony.

That Captain Grey being about to embark for England, the committee cannot allow him to quit these shores without expies>ing their regret that his stay has been so short, and the verse they ente t-iin of the great interest he he has evinced in the welfare of the colony,, and disinterested support he has given an enterprise which is likely to lead to such generally beneficial results as that under
