p.17 Editorial argues that those leaders who persevere with warfare and insubordination will be destroyed, and emphasises that such actions are published in English language newspapers and discussed by this newspaper along with Pakeha customs.
Discusses the reactions to Maori leaders prostituting their girls to Pakeha and begging and disorderly behaviour, as uncivilised attributes that belittle the Maori name.
Discusses the arrest and imprisonment of Ahiahi and Ngātipō for theft.
pp.18-19 The ancestors of England
Recounts the occupation of England by the Saxons and then the Danish Vikings, the death of Ethelred, the overthrow by the Danish Vikings, the exile of Alfred the Great with a shepherd who taught the good word. Explains that the monks Johannes Scotus Erigena and Asser translated the word of God, and how Pakeha learnt the Lord's words.
pp.19-20 Nohopai and Titirohaere [Good Citizen and Spectator]
Continuation, from Vol. 2, No. 1:4, of a discussion of the benefits of Pakeha settlement and goods for the Maori, the profitability of cultivating wastelands, the use of Maori labour, and the consequences of unlawful behaviour. Juxtaposes the civilised behaviour of Pakeha with the ignorant behaviour of Maori, and cites Peter the Apostle concerning respect for other people.
p.20 Notice of reward for those who return the Governor's stray horses.
