pp.5-6 Editorial about the conflict between Ngāi Te Rangi, Ngāti Whakaue, settlers and soldiers at Tauranga, the journey of Te Karaka [George Clarke Snr] to Ōtūmoetai, the military activity and relationships with Maori, the abuse of burial grounds, the retaliatory action by Maori, the attack on a ship as retribution, and the arbitration to end the fighting.
pp.6-7 Pōmare and others
Discussion about the attempted abduction by Pōmare and his group of a Ngāti Tipa person at Auckland, in retaliation for a woman who ran away, which was thwarted by Pakeha and the Constabulary. The consequences should have been imprisonment but the judgement was passed that these Maori were just ignorant of the law. Warning that similar actions and disregard for the law will not be tolerated.
p.7 Notice from Te Matiu warning that the carrying of firearms in townships is punishable by imprisonment.
pp.7-8 Letters to the Editor

p.8 The law: assault
Discusses the consequences of assault as judged by the British judicial system with examples of assaults on Pakeha from Pūtiki and Aotea, and on Te Matoha by a Pakeha.
