NEW BRUNSWICK. Mr. Charles Alexander Duff Miller, the indefatig- able Agent-General for New Brunswick, has issued in pamphlet form a concise presentment of the his- tory, position and prospects of the virile colony that derives its name from the reigning House of Eng- land. Mr. Duff Miller knows all there is to be known concerning the colony which has the good fortune to command his services as Agent-General, and what he has to say thereanent in the booklet adverted to—which is entitled "New Brunswick, Pastand Present"—was originally saidauthoritatively before the members of the Imperial Institute, of which he is a Governor. Mr. Duff Miller has marshalled his facts in an orderly and striking way, and describes the New Brunswick of to-day as graphically and accurately as he deals picturesquely with the past of the Colony—one of the nearest to the Empire's metropolis. He is enthusiastic as to the future of New Brunswick, which certainly offers many allurements to the enterprising capi- talist, and to men of wealth desirous of situating themselves amid agreeable surroundings. New Brunswick abounds in rich lands, waiting the hand of {the energetic agriculturist, to whom the Colonial Government offers every encouragement; whilst its mineral riches are extensive and very varied. As a sporting country New Brunswick, Mr. Duff Miller shows, possesses almost un- paralleled attractiveness, by forest, lake. and river. New Brunswick is by no means new and unde- veloped, but on the contrary enjoys the advantages of a well-established Governmental system and wisely-administered public institutions, having been happily spoken of as one of the most English of the British Colonies." It possesses many good ports and has already a railway system covering over 1300 miles. The interesting statistics and descriptive infor- mation put together by Mr. Duff Miller are at the service of intending emigrants and their friends, and indeed, of all concerned in the expansion of Greater Britain. Copies of the pamphlet in which the Colony's rise and progress is dealt with so illuminatively, and its advantages set forth so instructively, may be had at the offices •f Agent-General for New Briinswick, in London, free of charge. The pamphlet reads as entertain- ingly as an adventure story, and has the advantage •f being undeniably authentic in every particular.
