The Captain brought papers containing London comments on the destruction of Kororareka, which had caused a considerable sensation. The barque Enmore, which was ready to sail for New Zealand, was immediately taken off the berth, as intending passengers refused to proceed and merchants were too much alarmed to ship goods to the Colony.
White Wings - Sir Henry Brett

Following the move of the seat of Government from Russell to Auckland in 1841 Russell continued to house the Bond Store, a detachment of troops and the Police Magistrate, but its fate was sealed when Government House and its offices were burned to the ground in 1842.
