Not very helpful in identifying what the badge actually is but the "LVIII" will indicate The 58th (Rutlandshire) Regiment of Foot and the castle and motto will represent Gibraltar 1779-83 as a battle honour.
The 58th amalgamated with The 48th (Northamptonshire) Regiment of Foot in 1881 to form The Northamptonshire Regiment.

A quick Google shows the the 58th serving in New Zealand1845-59.
In 1858 they were fire fighting in Auckland.
