HAKARAIA TE HUAKI.—Ko te matenga o Te Paea Tiaho i panuitia ano i te Waka Nama 2, o Hanuere kua, taha nei.

E korerotia mai ana i £137 nga pauna moni i whakapaua e nga Maori ki te hoko kai ma nga tangata i haere mai ki te tangi i te matenga o Ani Te Tuhi Taipari i Tauranga, i te 17 o Maehe kua taha nei; a e ki ana ka whakapaua ano etahi moni atu hei hoko kai ano mo te nui o te tangata e haere tona mai ana ki te tangi. " Heoi tonu te ki, Ko te haere mai," ara o te tangata ki te tangi—ae ra, e kore hoki e mutu te haere mai, ka haere tonu mai ano ; ta ratou pai hoki kia kai noa atu ratou i nga momonatanga o te whenua i runga i te mauiui kore me te utu kore, ka pera ano hoki ratou me nga heke kowhiti- whiti o Amerika e mui mai nei ki te whenua. Me pehea koia e whai-rawa ai te iwi Maori ki te mea ka penei tonu te mahi ki te whiu porangi i o ratou rawa ?

Ko Pine Amine Huhu, o Anaura, Tai Rawhiti, e tohe ana ki nga Maori o taua takiwa kia whakaritea he tikanga e whiwhi ai ratou ki tetahi takuta hei noho i roto i a ratou ; kia pera me ta Tamati Tautahi i tohe ai i roto i tona reta i panuitia i roto i te Waka Nama 22, o Nowema, 1874. E ki ana a ia ko nga tangata i mate i taua takiwa, i muri mai o taua reta a Tamati Tautahi, e tae aua ki te 30—na te kore takuta hei rongoa ki tana i mohio ai.

HAKARAIA TE HUAKI.—The death of Te Paea Tiaho was duly noted in Waka No. 2, of January last.

We are informed that £137 was spent by the Natives in the purchase of supplies for the mourners who attended on the occasion of the death of Ani Te Tuhi Taipari at Tauranga on the 17th of March last, and that a further expense will yet have to be incurred to supply the wants of the continuous influx of mourners. "The cry is still, They come," and so they will continue to come, like swarms of American grasshoppers, so long as they can feed on the fat of the land without labour or expense to themselves. How can the Maoris expect to be prosperous when they squander their means in so senseless a manner ?

Pine Amine Huhu, of Anaura, East Coast, urges the Natives of that district to take measures to obtain the services of a medical man among them, as advised by Tamati Tautahi in his letter published in Waka No. 22, in November, 1874. He says since that letter was published some thirty Natives have died in the district, for the want, he believes, of medical assistance.
