In regard to Otago and Dunedin, it was the intention of the founders to establish an especially Presbyterian settlement. ... As to Dunedin we have lately heard more of its desire to have a Church of England bishop of its own than any other propensity. And it is going to have a bishop-I may say has got one, though when I was there the prelate had not yet arrived. A former bishop did indeed come out-but he was not approved of,-and was returned, having never been installed. It is marvelous to me that the Australian and New Zealand Sees can find English clergymen to go out to them. The pay is small, generally not exceeding £500 a year. That bishops do not become bishops for money we are all prepared to admit. But the power also is very limited, the patronage almost none at all, and the snubbing to which they are subjected is excessive. Please click here to ask a question
