              Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of... these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

Not illustrated. 1849 edition. Excerpt: ... APPENDIX. No. I. [As time passed on after Mr. Charles... Buller's speech on colonization in 1843, he was reproached, as well by friends as by persons who differed from him in party politics (for he had no enemies), with being inconsistent, and with neglecting a self-imposed task, by disappointing that public hope of his future usefulness as a colonizing statesman, to which his successful effort in 1843 had given occasion.

He was not really indifferent to either; but he was ever incapable of exerting his rare intellectual faculties without injury to his bodily health, and was often, for months together, incapacitated by bodily weakness from greatly exerting them at all. Thus, from 1843 to 1846, his physical strength was often over-tasked by his labours in the New-Zealand controversy: but his exertions during that period were far from being fruit454 APPENDIX. less; for he was the life and soul of the discussions upon colonial policy which grew out of the New-Zealand case, and which mainly produced the actual disposition of the public mind towards a reform of our whole colonial system.

In 1846, he accepted the nearly sinecure office of Judge Advocate General, but only on a distinct understanding with Lord Grey, that his duty in...
