1 tae mai ki a matou i a Mei, 1873, te pauna kotahi na tetahi

tangata, ko Mita Karaka te ingoa, e noho ana i Matatera; he

moni utu ia mo te Waka i roto i nga tau 1872 me 1873—a kua

tukuna tonutia nga nupepa ma taua tangata ki taua kainga ano.

Mehemea ko te Mita Karaka tenei e noho ana ki Omahu, kei

Nepia, inaianei, e ki mai nei kaore e tae atu ana ona nupepa ki

a ia, heoi ta matou kupu nana ano i kore e whakaatu mai tona

haerenga he kainga ke noho ai. Kia tae mai ona moni mo te

tau 1874 ka tukuna atu he nupepa mana ki te kainga e ki mai

nei ia.

Ko Tamihana Te Rauparaha, he rangatira tika no Ngatitoa,

e noho ana ki Otaki, kua whiwhi ki nga moni £51 17s.; he mea

kohikohi nana hei hanga i te whare karakia Maori kei Otaki.

Kua tukua mai e ia ki a matou nga ingoa o nga tangata, nga

Maori me nga Pakeha, nana aua moni i homai ki a ia, otira

kaore he wahi watea o te nupepa e panuitia ai aua ingoa. E

kitea ana e matou te ingoa o te Kawana i roto i aua ingoa, me

te ingoa o te Huperitene, me etahi atu Pakeha rangatira o Po

Neke nei. E' hari ana matou ki te whakaaro a nga Maori kia

whakahoutia taua whare karakia, no te mea kua mahue kinotia

e ratou taua whare i tenei takiwa kua taha nei. He pai kia nui

haere ratou ki te whare karakia, kia iti haere ki te paparikauta.

I roto i enei tau kua hore atu nei kua nui haere te rongo kino o

nga Maori o Otaki ki runga ki taua mahi—ara te kai waipiro.

Ko Raniera Erihana, o Otakou, e ki mai ana kua tango me-

hini tima, patu witi, nga Maori o Waikouaiti. I utua e ratou

ki te £583. I mahia ki te kamupene i taea ai aua moni; he

mea hoko ki te hea, e £5 mo te hea. I ata whakaritea ano he

tieamana mo taua kamupene, me te komiti whakahaere—i wha -

kahaerea te mahi i runga ano i nga ritenga o taua tu mahi. E

ki ana he mea hou tonu taua mehini, katahi ano ka utaina mai

In May, 1873, we received the sum of £1 from a Mita Karaka

residing at Matatera, in payment of his subscription for the

years 1872 and 1873; and his papers have been regularly posted

to that address. We have not received any money from any

other Mita Karaka. If this be the same Mita Karaka who now

resides at Omahu, Ahuriri, and who complains that he has not

received his paper, "we have only to say that he should have

informed us of his change of residence. On receipt of his sub-

scription for the year 1874 the paper will be sent as required.

Tamihana Te Rauparaha, a respectable chief of Ngatitoa,

residing at Otaki, has obtained by subscription the sum of

£51 17s. towards repairing and improving the Native church at

Otaki. He has sent us a list of the subscribers, Native and

European, but we cannot afford space for its insertion. We

observe amongst the names those of His Excellency the Go-

vernor, His Honor the Superintendent, and a number of other

gentlemen of Wellington. We are glad the Natives contemplate

renewing the church in question, which was been sadly neglected

of late. It would bo better for them if they would attend the

church more and the public-house less. The Otaki Natives

have attained to au unenviable notoriety in this respect of late

years.

Raniera Erihana, of Otago, says the Maoris of Waikouaiti

have purchased a large steam wheat-threshing machine, for

which they paid the sum of £583. The money was raised by

the sale of shares at £5 per share, issued by a company

formed for the purpose, with a committee of management and

chairman regularly appointed according to rule. The machine

is described as being a very superior one, just imported from
