MoreExcerpt from The Emigrants ManualThe Auckland Islands may be noticed in connection with New Zealand, though they scarcely form part of the same group, lying fully 180 miles southward, in latitude 51 south, and longitude 166 east.

The group consists of one principal island, called Auckland, with smaller ones clustering round it, named Enderby, Disappoint ment, Ewing, Ocean, Their formation is volcanic. Shooting up into nicturesaunextent from other large portions of land on the globe. On the one side they are about 1200 miles apart from the nearest extensive territory - the island-continent of Australia- while on the other they are fully 100 degrees of longitude, with scarcely an intervening rock, distant from the western coast of South America.

So much surrounded by wide oceans, it might at first be supposed that the climate and temperature of the islands would render them as distinct from any part of Europe as the Australian colonies in general have been found to be. But New Zealand seems to have within itself in uencing causes of a totally dide rent character from the vast internal desert of the Australian continent. The climate has been often compared to that of Italy, to which it pretty nearly corresponds in distance from the equator, stretching rather farther north of the 40th south parallel than Italy stretches south of the same north parallel.

The latitude of Wellington corresponds pretty closely with that of Naples.It is held to resemble that beautiful country in its physical aspect. To those indeed who love wild rocky mountain solitudes, with forest masses in their clefts - to whom, in short, the usual characteristics of fine mountain scenery are among the things that make life enjoyable - New Zealand will probably present more external attractions than any other emigration field. Australia has its mountain district in the northern part of New South Wales, but it is hot and jungly- and while the hilly portions of South Africa are less densely thicketed, yet both are infested by dangerous wild animals, which poison the easy enjoyment of nature, however great may be the attractions they hold out to the resolute sportsman.

New Zealand has been peculiar in nourishing no dangerous animal save man- and erelong, the last remains of the aboriginal ferocity will be extracted - if this have not already been in fact accomplished. The scenery of the Canadas is not in any part so wild and grand in the height of mountains and the wildness of ravines, though there is nothing of course that can be compared, as one separate and peculiar scene of terrific grandeur, with the Falls of Niagara.

Yet there are many mountain-torrents and fine rivers, and the geological cha racter of the islands makes them diversify the coast with deep inlets, several of which have been found to be well-protected bays. The interior of the country has been but scantily explored.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
