Voices from Auckland, New Zealand.

Immigrants' Office, — Rout's Buildings, High Street

Immigrants' Office,
Rout's Buildings, High Street.

This Office has been opened for the purpose of assisting Immigrants to settle in the Colony,—of becoming a medium of communication between the employer and the workman—and enabling Settlers in distant parts of the Province to conduct their business in Auckland without the necessity of personal attendance.

For a small subscription the Immigrant will receive information and advice upon all subjects upon which he requires it. He will be assisted in the selection of his land, and in his communication with the Government offices. And to those who require situations, the best means of obtaining them will be pointed out.

Settlers at a distance, both subscribers and others, will, upon application, have such workmen as they require sent out to them. Provisions and other articles purchased and forwarded at a commission of five per cent.; and all communications with the Government attended, smaller matters gratuitously—larger ones at a charge according to circumstances.

A Public Room will be open for the use of subscribers, where shipmasters and acquaintances can meet, and make arrangements for their mutual advantage; and where all general information interesting to New-comers will be daily supplied.

All further particulars can be obtained at the office, upon application to

Henry Smythies.

Secretary to the Ottahuhu Agricultural Association.
