THE MAORI MESSENGER. TE KARERE MAORI. VOL. VII.] AUCKLAND, MARCH IS, I860.—AKARANA, MAEHE 15, 1860. [No. 5. TARANAKI Since the issue of our last Messenger news has been received from Taranaki. We are glad to be able to inform our readers that up to the 14th, the date of our latest intelli- gence, no collision between the troops and the natives had taken place. The Airedale, with His Excellency the Governor and the detachment of troop's, an- chored off New Plymouth on Thursday morning, March 1st. H.M.S. Niger arrived a few hours later. The same day a message was sent to William King from the Governor inviting him to come into town and confer with His Excellency. His first reply was that be would lake time to consider whether he would accept or refuse the Governor's invitation. Subsequently, we are informed, he wrote positively declining to come into town but proposing that the Governor go to the Tima pa to meet him. We are sorry that William King should have neglected the TARANAKI. No muri mai i tera Karere ka tae mai te rongo no Taranaki. No te 14 o nga ra o Maehe nga rongo kua tae mai nei. Waiho atu kahore ano i whawhai nga Maori nga hoia. Ka pai tenei rongo. No te 1 o nga ra o Maehe ka u ki Tara- naki te tima i eke atu ai a Te Kawana me nga hoia i rere atu ra i Manuka. No te ata o te Taite ka tu. Tautini iho ka ta hoki te tima manuwao, a Te Naika. Ka u ki uta ka tonoa te karere a Te Kawana ki a Wiremu Kingi hei mea atu ki a ia kia haere mai ki te taone kia korero tahi ai raua ko Te Kawana. Whakahokia mai ana e Wiremu Kingi, me whakaaroaro e ia, ka haere mai ranei ka noho atu ranei. Muri iho .tuhituhia ana tana pukapuka ki a Te Kawana, kahore ia e tae mai, engari ma Te Kawana e haere atu ki Te Tima, kia kite i a ia. He ingoa pa tenei Te Tima, ko tetahi o nga pa o reira. Heoi, kahore o Wiremu Kingi paanga ki a Te Kawana. Erangi ano, ki ta matou wha- kaaro, me haere mai ia i runga i te kupu a Te Kawana kia ata korero mane ai raua. He pai tonu hoki to Te Kawana ki te wha- karongo i tana korero, ki te ata korero atu
