Village of Richmond.
MESSRS. JOHN and GEORGE WADE have the honour to announce that they have received instructions from
T. M. PARTRIDGE, ESQ.,
To submit to public competition, at the New Exchange Room, Te Aro, on Saturday, October 30, 1841, the whole of his
COUNTRY SECTION,
Judiciously chosen in the Valley of the Hutt, and laid out by R. Park, Esq., with great taste and judgment, as
A VILLAGE,
In which there will be a reserve on the most navigable part of the River Hutt for
A TOWN,
So as to allow to each five acres in the village, one quarter of an acre in the town,
WITH RESERVES FOR A CHURCH AND PUBLIC PURPOSES,
So as to enable the future proprietors to concentrate the whole of the trade of that fertile district in the small town attached to the
VILLAGE OF RICHMOND.
The order of choice in the town will be determined by priority of purchase in the village; the buyer of the first village lot having first choice in the town.
Little need be said on the subject of this land, as the fertility of it is too well known to admit of dispute; and although the valley of the Hutt was not long since like the Deserted Village, yet its local advantages, and the richness of its soil, soon overcame every obstacle, and has already created a reaction. There is now a population of more than 700 (sic) people located there; and this is only a faint promise of what is to come. We shall shortly see
“The never-failing brook, the busy mill,”
In full perfection, as the whole wealth of the district of Port Nicholson is concentrated in the
FERTILE VALLEY OF THE HUTT.
To the capitalist it holds out a sure, certain, and large profit for what he invests. To the labourer it holds out the prospect of future independence in the possession of his own cottage fireside on his own land, in a wealthy neighbourhood, where he is always sure of profitable employment. To the trader it holds out the promise of extensive business in a rich and populous district, where all the future exports of the Colony will either be produced or have to pass through, with the means of conveying to the shipping port (until Richmond becomes a port) by the cheapest means — WATER CARRIAGE at his door. And to the invalid a delightful spot for a residence, adorned with Nature”s richest gifts, far from the hum of the busy town, with a climate not even second to the south of France or the blue ethereal sky of Italy, to renovate the health; and the most picturesque scenery and delightful landscape in the world to gratify the man of taste, and beguile his leisure hours.
Terms liberal. Terms and further particulars in a hand-bill.
