Kua tukua atu era Waka ki a Tanumeha te Moananui, o Hauraki, timata mai i a Hanuere, 1874, ki tana ano i ki ai.

Tenei kua tae mai te reta a nga hoa o Patihana fce Aukomiro, he korero roa noa atu mo tona matenga. Hei tera putanga o te nupepa te panuitia ai ki te whai takiwa watea. Ko etahi enei o nga kupu,—" I te taima ka tata ia te hemo ka tahuri ia ka tuhituhi i tona pukapuka tuku i tona karaati ki ona uri. Kaore i whai miniti ka mahue, ka pupuri ia ki tetahi ona ringa, kotahi miniti e pupuri ana ka karanga ia :—' Haro' Kua taapu te wati nei!' a haere ana tona wairua."

Kua tae mai te reta a Hutana Taru mo nga tangata i kite ia i mate i te Tai-rawhiti i te kainga waipiro. Tera ano pea e panuitia e matou taua reta ki te taea e matou te panui.

Ko Te Rangiuru me etahi atu tangata o Rangitikei, e ki mai ana tera tetahi hoiho tariana pai rawa kei a Utiku Marumaru, hei hoiho purei; e tora tau o taua hoiho, kaore he hoiho rite ki a ia te pai o te tupu, me te ataahua noa iho. No te 11 o nga ra o Hepetema nei i huihui ai nga taitamariki o taua takiwa ki te iriiri i taua hoiho. I inumia etahi patara waina i taua hui, a koa ana hari ana ratou i runga i taua mahi. Kotahi te he, kaore i marama i a matou nga reta o te ingoa o taua hoiho. Ta matou kupu, me pa ratou ki tetahi hoa Pakeha hei tuhituhi i etahi kupu whakaatu mo taua hoiho, a ka tuku mai ai ki a matou kia panuitia atu. Tera pea e pai a Teone Tiweni mana e tuhituhi.

Ka mahia mariretia e matou te reta a nga tangata o Wha- nganui mo te Tahana Turoa kua mate nei.

Ko te Rev. Mohi Turei Tangaroapeau, o Waiapu, e whakapai ana ki te tika o te korero i panuitia atu e matou i te Waka o te 14 o Hurae kua taha nei, i huaina " He korero whakapapa no Ngatiapa, Rangitane, Hamua, me etahi atu iwi." Kua kite ia i etahi nupepa e ki ana ko te Wananga tona ingoa, he mea mahi i Pakohai " i raro o te mana o Henare Tomoana ;" e ki ana ko ia te arero tika hei korero mo nga Wananga katoa o te Maori. E ki ana hoki a Mohi;—" Kei te pai au ki taua ki, otia tenei ake nga ra e tino marama ai."

The back numbers of the Waka are sent to Tanumeha te Moananui, of Hauraki, from January, 1874, as required.

We have received from the friends of Patihana te Aukomiro, Native Assessor, a long obituary notice of his decease. Wo shall refer to it in our next issue, if we have space. We extract the following :—" Shortly before his death he occupied himself in writing a will, bequeathing his lands to his relations. Sud- denly, ceasing from his work, with one hand he grasped the wrist of the other, and, holding it for about the space of a minute, he exclaimed,—' Hallo! the watch has stopped,' and then his soul departed.'"

Wo have received Hutana Taru's letter in reference to deaths from intemperance, which have come under his notice on the East Coast. We shall publish it if possible.

Te Rangiuru and others of Rangitikei, write that Utiku Marumaru has a most magnificent three-year-old entire race horse, unrivalled in the symmetry and perfection of his pro- portions. On the 11th of September instant, the young men of the district assembled for the purpose of giving it a name with all due ceremony. Sundry bottles of wine were discussed, and there seems to have been a considerable amount of rejoicing and festivity on the occasion. Unfortunately wo have been unable to decipher the name of the animal. We recommend them to get a Pakeha friend to write a notice of the horse, which they can send to us for publication. Probably Mr. John Stevens would do it for them.

We shall attend in due timu to the letter from the Wha- nganui Natives respecting Tahana Turoa, deceased.

The Rev. Mohi Turei Tangaroapeau, of Waiapu, is pleased with the accuracy of our article published in the Waka of 14th of July last, headed " Genealogies of Ngatiapa, Rangitane, Hamua, and others." He has seen a newspaper called the Wananga, which is published at Pakohai, " under the authority of Henare Tomoana," which professes to be a faithful exponent of the views of all Maori soothsayers and wise men. He says, " I commend this profession, but we shall see in due time."
