NGA RONGO KORERO.
TE RIIHI. E kiia ana te koiero o te nupepa o Turanga. He nui noa atu te mahi a Te Riihi i Turanga, a he tangata mahi kakama a Te Riihi, a he nui te pai o ana mahi mo Turanga, i te mea kua kiia kia hangaa he waapu e whiti ai te tangata me te kaata i te awa o Taruheru e tae ai te tangata ki te whenua i Whataupoko, a kua mahia he taone e Te Riihi rana ko nga Maori ki taua wahi. He nui noa atu te pai o taua taone i te Wha- taupoko, a he whakapai kau ta te iwi ki aua mahi a Te Riihi, i te mea ka nui he taone, ka tini he Pakeha, ma reira e nui ai he taonga ma te iwi. A e kiia ana ka nui te pai o te iwi o Turanga ki te Kawanatanga a Kawana Kerei. Kia toa e Ngaiporou ki to mahi, ki» kaha, ki to mahi taone Pakeha mo koutou ko o iwi.
MR. REES. The Poverty Bay correspondent of the Auckland Herald writes :" Mr. Rees is very active and vigor- ous, and is doing a great deal of good for the place. He is about to cause a bridge to be built over the Taruhera to Whataupoko that will cause the town to extend northward, and will open up a large extent of valuable country. Ho is laying out a township, and is causing valuable reserves to be made for racing, cricket, recreation, public park, and pleasure grounds, schools, churches, &c., &c. The public here have the greatest confidence in the present Government, and expect they will largely assist in the advancement of the place."
