E tukuna tonut.ia ana the Waka ki a Ihaka Kapo, ki Aorangi, ki tana ano i ki mai ai. Kaore matou e mohio ana ki te tikanga i kore ai e tae atu ki a ia. Tenei ano he take ano kua kitea e matou, i mohio ai matou, e mohio nei, ko etahi Maori e poka noa ana ki te tango i te Potapeta nga nupepa e hara nei i te nupepa i tukua ki a ratou.

Ko Tamihana Aperahama, o Kaipara, Akarana, tenei kua tuhia mai ki a matou tetahi roto roa mo nga tikanga maha, otira I e kore e o ki te nupepa nei. Kua rongo ia ki tetahi makutu kei te taha ki raro atu o Kaipara, a kua nui tona whakatakariri ki taua mea. E whakaaro ana a ia he tika kia pehia e te ture nga makutu katoa, a kia taumaha t.e whiu mo nga tohunga makutu. Na, i pena ano hoki te whakaaro o te Pakeha i nga takiwa o te pouritanga kua taha atu nei, no te mea he tohunga makutu ano i roto i te Pakeha i reira ai, he pera ano me nga Maori i tenei takiwa. Otira i enei rangi o te maramatanga me te matau- ranga e kataina ana taua hunga teka, no to mea kua mohio- tia kaore he kaha o ratou ki te whakamate i te tangata. Ta ratou mahi, he mahi whakahari kau i a ratou ; he tangata kia mate i a ratou i kore. E hara i te riri patai to riri a Tamihana ki etahi Maori e haere ana, ki tana i ki ai, ki te Potapeta nuku- rau ai a tangohia ana e ratou nga nupepa ki etahi tangata. E mea ana a Tamihana kia mohio ana koroke e tiakina ana e rapua ana he he mo ratou e etahi atu, a ki te ata kitea ka whakawakia ratou ki te ture, tona whiu he utu moni, ka kore

he herehere.

Kua tae mai te moni a Hemi Pama, engari kia mohio ia mo te tau kua motu i a Oketopa nei aua moni. Ko tetahi moni mo

tenei tau e haere nei, kaore ano.

Ko Raniera Erihana, o Ot.akou, e whakaatu mai ana i te marenatanga o Peteriki Kihau Tuhawaiki, mokopuna a Tuha- waiki, ki a Hana Parata, i marenatia, ki Waikouaiti i te 10 o Oketopa kua taha nei. He nui te kai i tana marenatanga, te hakari; he tokomaha hold nga Pakeha, nga tane me nga wahine, I i tae ki te whakanui i taua marenatanga. No te hokinga ki

• Otakou ka takoto te kai a Teone Topi hei whakahonore mo te marenatanga o tona iramutu. He nui nga tangata i hui ki taua kai, he Pakeha etahi, nga tane me nga wahine, a i tu te

• kanikani i te 9 karaka i te ahiahi, tae noa ki te 5 karaka i te ata e kanikani ana.

The Waka, is regularly posted to Ihaka Kapo at Aorangi, as directed. We cannot say why he does not receive it. We have reason to believe that many Natives are in the habit of getting papers from the Post Office who have no right to do so.
