THE MAORI MESSENGER. TE KARERE MAORI.

VOL. VII.] AUCKLAND, FEBRUARY 29, I860.—AKARANA. PEPUERE: 29, 1860. [No. 4. VISIT OF THE GOVERNOR TO TARA- NAKI. Yesterday,Yesterday the 28th inst, His Excellency the Governor and suite, with a detachment of troopstroops, embarked on boardboard the. steamer ' Airedale' which left: Manukau early this morning for Taranaki. In order to prevent our Maori; friends in various parts of the: country from being mis- led by mere reports, we are anxious to give them correct information respecting the ob- ject of His Excellency's present visit to Tara- naki, and to caution them against giving credit to any contrary statement which they may hear. The practice of raising and spread- ing unfounded reports is not peculiar, to the Maori people. Among the Pakehas,. as among them, there is no lack of persons more: anxious .to have something to tell than careful that what they tell shall be true. It is wise, therefore, always to enquire before believing anything heard in this way, and to ascertain upon what authority and from what source it comes. TE HAERE O TE KAWANA KI TARA-

No nanahi, no te .28 o, nga ra, o Pepuere, ka eke a Te Kawana ma ki runga i te kaipuke tima i Manukau, me tetahi rangapu. hoia. No te atatu ka rere atu, ahu atu, ana ki Tara- naki. Na, he mea atu tenei kei he o matou hoa Maori o tera wahi o tera wahi i nga korero hanga noa a te arero. Na konei matou i whakaaro ai me tuhituhi marire i konei nga tikanga o te korero o tenei haere o te Ka- wana ki Taranaki, kia rongo ai ratou i nga tikanga i haere ai, rae whakatupato hoki e matou kia tupato ai o matou hoa ki tetahi korero rere ke, me tie mea Ka rangona e ra- tou. E hara i nga tangata Maori anake te ma- hi tito korero e te tangata hei korero mana, te mahi kawekawe hoki i te korero hanga na te ngutu. Kei te Maori kei te Pakeha ano hoki taua tikanga. Ko te whakaaro kia ai he korero mana i nui, ko te whakaaro kia ata tika te korero i iti. No konei i mea- tia ai, engari me ata rapu tetahi korero e pura ake. ana, kia kitea te take kia kitea hoki te tika ka whakapono ai. Ko te whakaaro tohunga, koia tenei, kia ata tirohia tona pu- take i puta mai ai tetahi korero.
