EAST COAST LANDS. AUGUST 26TH 1874.
Mr. W. Kelly, in moving the Motion standing in his name, would state that several petitions had been sent to this House from the Arawa tribe, living in the Bay of Plenty. A numerous tribe, who had always acted loyally to the European population of this country, and had for a long period fought on our side, requesting that the restructions at present im- posed upon leases and sales to Europeans should be removed. They urged that the Act of confiscation had prevented them obtaining a fair price for their Land. They had sent several petitions on-the subject, containing over 700 signatures, and they had now sent some of their chiefs as delegates to Wellington to prevail upon the Members representing the Native race and any other Members with, whom they might come in contact to endeavour to induce the Govern- ment to withdraw those restrictions> when they would be in a petition, to compete with any Europeans who HE KUPU WHAKAATU KI NGA HOA TUHI MAI He moni kua riro mai : £ s. d.

NGA WHENUA I TE TAI-RA-WHITI. AKUHATA 26TH, 1874. Ko te Kere, ka ki, ka whakahaerea e au te Motini e mau nei i toku ingoa, a ke inaha nga pitihana kua tukua mai ki tenei whare e tenei iwi e te Arawa, e noho nei i te Pei o Pureti, A he iwi nui taua iwi, a e piri pono tonu ana ratou ki te iwi Pakeha o tenei whenua, a ke roa te takiwa o to ratou piringa ki to tatou taha whawhai ai.

Kia kaha te tohe atu ki te Kawanatanga kia whakakorea aua tikanga, kia riro tonu ia ratou, te ahua penei me to te Pakeha,
