Hoani Nahe sends us au account of the enrolment of certain Natives of Hauraki as Volunteers, in January last. Hoani informs us that Sir Donald McLean, on his late visit to that district, inspected the company, and expressed his satisfaction with the rapid progress they had made in the art of handling the rifle and acquiring a knowledge of their military duties;

and that he gave directions that they were to continue to receive instruction in order to enable them to compete at the annual Colonial Prize Firing.

We have been unable to translate, in time for this issue, the letter of the Rev. Renata W. Tangata, of Pukepoto, respecting the marriage of Timoti Puhipi To Ripi, a Rarawa chief.

Wiremu Matene Te Huaki says that the Natives of "Maketu have a carved house for sale, which any speculative gentleman may obtain for £550.

Tame Paroto Haereroa informs us that over £300 was spent to provide food for the Natives at a meeting held at Arowhenua, Waikouaiti, on the 3rd of April last.

A number of letters received must stand over.
