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.
