Excerpt from Australia: With Notes by the Way, on Egypt, Ceylon, Bombay and the Holy Land

A large impression of this volume having been disposed of within a few weeks, the author has taken the advantage of a new issue to revise his book, and to make some additions to it.

The events which have recently transpired in the Australasian Colonies, and which have been reported since the first edition of this book was published, show the rapid change and advancement of British dependencies in that part of the globe. Not only has the "Native-King" disturbance in New Zealand been allayed by the timely measures of its newly-appointed Governor, Sir George Grey, but gold has been discovered in the southern portion of that double island; and the yield is so abundant as to attract thousands to it, across the surrounding seas.
