The Runangas will have "to decide all disputes about the lands," and, "make a Register, in which should be written a statement of all the lands within the District of that Runanga." The next matters commanding the attention of the Native tribes are, the " Orders in Council," appointing Districts under the " Native Circuit Courts Act," and the "Native Dis-tricts Regulation Act." With the hope that the Natives will better under-stand these regulations, the Districts will be named, and the dates when the " Orders in Council" were passed. They may, therefore, read for them-selves the full particulars in the Messengers previously forwarded to the various Maori settlements. ORDERS IN COUNCIL.
