PIRI PARAONE, of Muriwai, desires to inform all Natives

who have any claim upon the Panireia block that he is about to

engage a surveyor to survey the whole of that block of land;

and he gives this public notice of his intention that no man

may afterwards be able to say that the work has been done

surreptitiously. The boundary commences at Pamoa, and goes

thence to Mataki-wahine, Teremomaru, Omako, thence along

the Government boundary to Panireia, Puwharawharanui, the

Arowhatakapiti, and thence to Pamoa, the point of commence-

ment. The owners of the said block are, Piri Paraone, Hirini

te Ratu, Tamaku, Hohua, Maraia te Ao, Teporas Mero

Moana, Maraia Keto, Rihara Porou, and Irihapeti Taihanu-

hanu.

NONGI RAKU, Shamrock Hotel, Wellington. —We have none

of our first issue left. Although we printed a hundred extra,

copies, the demand was so great, that, in a very short timo, all

were gone. We send you from No. 2.

PAORA TUHAERE of Auckland. —We are glad that the re-

suscitation of the Waka gives you and your friends so much

pleasure. The paper is issued twice a month, and the price is

13s. per year, or 6d. a copy.

RANIERA ERIHANA, of Otago, informs us that, during the

early part of August last, the snow in that part of the country

was, in some places, ten or twelve feet in depth, and that the

entrance to the railway tunnel was blocked up so as to prevent

the passage of the train. The oldest Natives, he says, never

saw so heavy a fall of snow. He also expatiates on the benefits

of Good Templarism, strongly advising the Natives to become

Good Templars. We have not room to publish his letter in

full. We cannot publish deaths of children which occurred

months ago.

WIREMU NGAWEKE POHEPOHE, of Whatawhata. —Send 13s.,

and you will receive a paper.

HEPETA MAITAI, of Tologa Bay. —We shall be guided by our

own judgment as to what we shall insert in the Waka, and

what we shall reject. If you do not like the paper, you are

under no obligation to take it. You had better send your

letter to Paora Parau by the mail.

W. K. IRONUI, of the Kawakawa. —The only portion of your

remarks of which we approve, is your censure of intemperance.

We agree with you that its fruits are adultery, murder, rob-
