" I etahi wahi e rima tae ki te ono inihi to matotoru o taua huka; i ngaro katoa nga tarutaru o te whenua, ko nga kau, ko nga hoiho, ko nga hipi, i haereere kau noa iho ki te kimi kai ma ratou. Me i roa atu e tuku ana te huka, kua matemate. I uta, i te tu whenua, i matotoru rawa te huka; i ma katoa te ahua o te whenua."

Te Kiwi, of Kennedy's Bay concurs in the sentiments of Hutana Taru, as expressed in his letter (Waka, June 16th), respecting the evil effects of drunkenness, and the conduct of certain Native Assessors.

Raniera Erihana, of Otago, writes that there was a heavy fall of snow in that district, which continued without inter- mission for three days—from the 19th to the 21st of July. " In some places the snow was from five to six inches thick ;

the vegetation was completely covered, and the cows, horses, and sheep, wandered about looking for something to cat. If the snow had continued much longer they must have died. In the inland districts the snow was much deeper, and the whole country presented a perfectly white appearance."

We have no space in this issue for the letters of Winikerei te Whetuiti, and others.

All the papers were posted to Manahi, of Kohekohe, Wai- kato. However, we send him by this mail the missing num- bers, viz., Nos. 7, 9, and 12.

The letter from Rangihuatau and others, of Whanganui, was received too late for insertion in this issue. Wait.

The great length of Major Ropata's letter has necessitated our leaving several items of news to stand over which we had intended to insert.

TERMS OF SUBSCRIPTION.

The Subscripiion to the Waka Maori is 10s., payable in advance, per year. Persons desirous of becoming subscribers can have the paper posted io their address by forwarding that amount to the Editor in Wellington.

DEATH.

TANIKO TE PAHUPAHU, at Matangi, Taupo, on the 13th June, 1874.
