Kaore he tikanga e taia ai e matou nga uri me nga whanau- nga o Karetai raua ko Taiaroa me o raua tupuna. E hara i te korero ahuareka ki te tokomaha o te tangata nga kawai o te tangata noa atu, a e kore e pai kia kapi noa te nupepa nei i aua tu korero; no te mea hoki he nui ano enei reta e takoto nei, nui atu te ahuareka o nga korero i tena, a kaore hoki he wahi watea e o ai aua reta ki te nupepa nei.

Ko to reta a Maika Pikaka, o Waiari, kaore e pai mo roto i tenei hanga, i te nupepa. Tera nga Kooti Whakawa hei mahinga mo aua tu mea. Mo to patai mo te nohoanga ki runga ki nga whenua-rahui, me anga koe me pa ki a te Wata,

kei Tanitini.

Ko nga Maori o Opape, i te takiwa ki Opotiki, e whakaatu mai ana kua oti i a ratou tetahi whare hei whare whakawa, hei whare huihuinga, hei whare nohoanga hoki mo nga manuhiri. I timataria ta ratou mahi i taua whare i te 29 o Hune kua taha nei. Te roa o taua whare, 54 putu 6 inihi; te whanui, 24 putu; te tiketike no raro ki te tahuhu, 12 putu 3 inihi; te tiketike o nga pakitara, 6 putu 6 inihi. E wha nga pou whakairo o te tahuhu. Ko nga kaho, me nga heke o te tuanui, me nga maihi, me te roro katoa o te whare he mea whakairo katoa. E rua putu o raro o nga pakitara ki roto, he mea papa, wanihi rawa ; ko te 4 putu 6 inihi i runga ake, i tukutukutia. Ko te utu o te kai kua pau i runga i te mahinga i tenei whare e £200. Na te Kai-whakawa o taua takiwa i hoatu e £2, na to Kawanatanga.

We cannot publish the long list of names of the descendants and relations of Karetai and Taiaroa and their ancestors. The genealogies of private individuals are not generally matters of public interest, and we cannot fill up our pages with such com- munications, more particularly as we have numerous letters on hand from all parts of the country, on much more interesting subjects, which we cannot find space to publish.

The letter from Maika Pikaka, of Dunedin, is not suitable for the columns of a newspaper. There are courts of law for dealing with such matters. With respect to your question about the occupation of reserves, application should be made to I. N. Watt, Esq., Dunedin.

The Natives of Opape, in the district of Opotiki, inform us that they have erected a house to be used for the general pur- poses of a council-hall, a court-house, and a hostelry for strangers. The work was commenced on the 29th of June last. It is 54 feet 6 inches in length ; 24 feet in width; height from floor to ridgepole, 12 feet 3 inches; height of walls, 6 feet 6 inches. There are four carved pillars supporting the ridge- pole. The rafters and battens of the roof, the gable-boards, and the whole front of the house, are also carved. The walls inside are boarded with planed boards 2 feet up from the ground, and the remaining 4 feet 6 inches are covered with ornamental work. The cost of the food consumed in con- nection with the construction of this house was £200, towards which the Resident Magistrate of the district contributed £2 on behalf of the Government.
