The other rivers worth mentioning are the Yarra, entering the sea at Port Phillip, Hopkins and Glenelg.
Lord Glenelg, the colonial minister, had the support of the missionaries in withstanding Wakefield's New Zealand Company, which at length resolved in desperation to send an agent to buy land wholesale in New Zealand and despatch a shipload of settlers thither without official permission.
Glenelg is a favourite watering-place.
In April 1835 he became secretary for war and the colonies, and was created Baron Glenelg.
Glenelg's brother, SIR Robert Grant (1779-1838), who was third wrangler in 1801, was, like his brother, a fellow of Magdalene College, Cambridge, and a barrister.
