In all colonial cities that grow up in the course of half a century there always comes a time when there is difference of opinion as to, who are best entitled to be considered as among the pioneers and founders of the settlement. In Wellington, just now a good deal of interest attaches to the identity of the oldest inhabitants. An original copy of the "Burgess Roll for the Borough of Wellington for the year 1843," which has been submitted to us for our perusal, is a document of some value, and it occurs to us that publication of the names contained in it will be welcomed by many readers.
