HE TANGATA MATE.

Ko PEHIMANA TE TAHUA, he rangatira rongo nui o Ngarauru, i mate ki Waitotara, i te 14 o Hanuere, 1875. I roto i enei tau o muri nei he tangata piri pono ia ki te Kawanatanga ; a, i tetahi ra i mua tata atu o tona matenga, i tonoa e ia nga Maori katoa o nga takiwa e tata ana ki tona kainga kia haere mai kia poroporoaki ia ki a ratou, a ko ana kupu whakamutunga i korero ai ki a ratou, i mea kia pai to ratou noho i te taha o nga

Pakeha.

Ko IHARAIRA. HOUKAMAU, he tino rangatira kaumatua, rongo nui, no Ngatiporou ; i mate ki Wharekahika, i te 3 o Hanuere, 1875. He teitei rawa te turanga o tenei rangatira i roto i nga iwi katoa o te Tairawhiti. He tangata kaha ia ki te hapai i te Whakapono i roto i nga tau 35 kua pahure ake nei;

he hoa pono hoki ia no te Kawa.natanga. He mate ohorere rawa tona mate, no te mea he tangata ora tonu ia tae noa mai ki te ra i mate ai.

We have received a very largo number of letters from our Native correspondents in various parts of the colony. We cannot read them in time to insert answers in this issue ; but we shall endeavour to notice as many of them as possible in our next.

DEATHS.

PEHIMANA. TE TAHUA, a noted chief of Ngarauru, at Wai- totara, on the 14th of January, 1875. Of late years he was a stanch supporter of the Government; and a few days before his death he sent; for the Natives from every district in the neighbourhood to bid them farewell, and his last advice to them was to live in peace with the Europeans.

IHARAIRA HOUKAMAU, an aged and celebrated chief of Ngatiporou, at Wharekahika (Hick's Bay), on the 3rd of January, 1875. This chief held a very high position among the tribes on the East Coast. He was, and had been for some thirty-five years, a firm supporter of Christianity among the tribes, and a valuable ally of the Government. His death was totally unexpected, as ho was in the enjoyment of robust health up to the time of his death.
