HE KUPU WHAKAHOKI KI NGA HOA TUHI MAI.

He nui enei reta kua tae mai, e lore e taea te panui inaianei.

Kua tukua mai he moni e etahi tangata hou. Mea ake whaka-

hokia ai aua moni.

Ko te perehi o te WAKA MAORI e takoto ana inaianei mo te

hoko. Ki te mea e hiahia ana etahi o a matou hoa Maori ki te

mahi i tetahi nupepa ma ratou, tenei te perehi pai rawa, hou

tonu, ko te utu he iti rawa. Tena pea a Kingi Tawhiao, me te

hoa aroha o te Hihana, a Rewi, e pai ki te mahi nupepa i te

Waikato " hei oranga mo te motu katoa. " • Tera pea te Hihana

* pai kia haere ia hei Kai Tuhi mo ta raua nupepa, no te mea

kua kore he mahi mana inaianei.

HE whakaatu tenei ki o matou hoa i tetahi huinga o

nga tangata whai hea o te Kamupane o te WAKA

MAORI, i Nepia i te & o nga ra o Oketopa nei, i kiia

kia whakamutua te mahi i te WAKA. Ko konei he

mea whakamutunga tenei WAKA ka tukua atu nei ki

a koutou. Te take i mutu ai, he kore kaore e wha-

ngaitia ana kia ora. He nui nga tangata o etahi wahi

o te koroni e tuhituhi tonu mai ana kia hoatu he

nupepa ki a ratou; otira he tokoiti o ratou e homai

moni ana. Me i kore te manaaki a te Pakeha kua

mate noa atu te WAKA. Kua whakamatau matou ki

te mahi i tenei taonga hei kawe korero ki nga Maori

mo nga tikanga e pa ana ki te oranga mo ratou, hei

ara whakapuakanga hoki ma ratou i o ratou wha-

kaaro, otira kihai i rite ta ratou manaaki mai i ta

matou i mahara ai. Ko tenei ki te mea ka hiahia

ratou kia whiwhi nupepa ratou a mua ake nei, ma

ratou ake ano e mahi; kaua e ki ma te Pakeha e

mahi.

NOTICES AND ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS.

Many letters have come to hand lately, but of course we.

cannot now publish them.

Several new subscribers have sent money, which will be re-

turned in due time. ------

The plant of the WAKA MAORI is now for sale; so that if

any of our Native friends would like to start a paper of their

own, they have an opportunity of purchasing a really excellent

plant, nearly new, and very cheap. Possibly His Majesty

King Tawhiao and Mr. Sheehan's friend Rewi may feel in-

clined to start a paper in the Waikato " for the benefit of the

whole island. " As Mr. Sheehan is now in want of employment.

he might be induced to edit it for them.

NAPIER, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1879. '

WE have to inform our readers that at a general

meeting of shareholders of the WAKA MAORI news-

paper Company, held at Napier on, the 6th of

October instant, it was unanimously decided to

discontinue the publication of the WAKA and to, place

the affairs of the Company in the hands of a liquida-

tor without delay. Under these circumstances

the publication of the WAKA will cease with the

present issue. It has been found necessary to take

this step in consequence of the very inadequate sup-

port we have received. Numbers of Natives from

various parts of the colony send orders for the paper,

but it has been, found that very few of them pay up

their subscriptions Were it not for the liberal sup-

port we have received from European gentlemen, the

WAKA would have been, defunct long ere this. We

have made an effort to supply, the Maories with a

medium for the conveyance of information to them

respecting matters and things affecting their interests,

and for the expression of their own opinions thereon,
