"It is very desirable you should clearly understand, that no change of Ministry in New Zealand will affect the views of Her Majesty's Government in respect to the policy embodied in the resolutions of the Assembly of New Zealand in December, 1864" (Mr. Weld's). "Having accepted with entire satisfaction that policy, Her Majesty's Government intend to adhere to it, and to be guided by it." --Extract from a despatch of H. M.'s Secretary of State for the Colonies to the Governor of New Zealand on Mr. Weld's resignation: dated Dec. 26, 1865.
