We have forwarded the letter of Wiremu Hunia te Kapotai, of Waikare, Bay of Islands, to Mr. Clarke.

We have received the letter of A. K. Patene, Secretary of the " Raglan and Waikato Maori Company," informing us that the Company is about to be registered under " The Joint Stock Companies Act, I860." As requested by the Committee, we shall not publish any communications with which they may favour us until the Company has been brought under the operation of the above Act—a step which we advise them to take without delay.

We have received the letter from Paora Pene, of Wellington. The subject is of no importance.

Tamati Reina, of Matatera, near Whanganui, fears something dreadful will happen to the Ngatiapa people in consequence of their inveterate habits of drinking.

We are informed that our Maori readers manifest great interest in scraps of foreign news which they read in the Waka— they like to know what is going on amongst the nations ! At the request of many of them, we give a few English Mail items in this issue. Wo recommend them to apply to their Pakeha friends to point out on a map of the world the position of the places mentioned.

The names of Kiritahanga, of Ranana, and Poari Hauauru, of Kaiwaiki, Whanganui, have been struck off our list.

Henare Potae's papers have been regularly posted. We cannot say why he has not received them. The £1 which he says he entrusted to the care of a certain gentleman at Napier, to be by him forwarded to us, has not been received.
