O 10 O £600 Ko TIAKI te PAKARU, o Oropi, Tauranga, kua tuhi mai i tetahi reta, e ki ana, " Ko Rota, o te Tawera, raua ko tona hoa ko Reweti, o Ngatipikiao, i haere ki te whakangau poaka i te ngahere. E toru pea maero i haere ai raua ka mau te poaka i a raua kuri, ka patua e raua ka waiho i reira, mo te hokinga mai ka mau ai. Ka haere ano raua, e toru ano pea maero ka mate ano tetahi poaka, ka waiho iho ano. Ka haere ka tae ki tetahi awa nui, ka whiti atu raua ki tetahi taha ka piki atu ki runga ki te kahiwi. Katahi ka tohe a Reweti kia hoki mai raua i to raua huanui, ko Rota i tohe kia haere tonu raua, kia ahu ki te rerenga o te ra. Nawai a, ka whakaae a Rota kia hoki mai raua, ara kia ahu ki te ra-whiti. Katahi a Reweti ka hoki iho ki te awa i whiti atu ra raua, ka tatu iho ka karanga ake ki a Rota, ka karanga iho ano a Rota, engari i piki tonu a Rota, i ahu tonu ki te rerenga o te ra. Katahi a Reweti ka ahu mai whaka te kainga, kotahi te po i te ngahere ka puta mai ki te kainga. Ko Rota i ngaro atu ki te ngahere, kaore ano kia kitea i naianei; e haere tonu ana nga kai-kimi i nga ra katoa. Ka rima nga wiki e ngaro ana, kaore ano kia kitea i naianei. Kua tae katoa mai tona iwi, a te Tawera. [He patai ta matou me he mea i hoki tahi mai a raua kuri i a Reweti ra, i tetahi takiwa ranei i muri o tona taenga mai, kai te ngaro tonu atu ranei nga kuri.] P. PARK te RANGIAHUTA, o Waikouaiti.—Kaore he tikanga o to haerenga e rekareka ai nga tangata korero i te nupepa nei. Tera ka tukua atu he Waka, mau i runga i to tono. Ko MANAHI TUMATAHI, o Waerenga, Rotorua, e ki mai ana i mau i a ia tetahi manu tauhou pai rawa i te moana o Rotorua i te 20 o Aperira kua taha nei. Kia nui atu i te kuihi taua manu, ko te roa o tona kaki i tae ki te 3 putu. E whakaaro ana nga Maori i haere mai taua manu i nga motu o te moana kei mamao, i kawea mai ki uta e tetahi hau nui, awha nui, i pa i taua ra. E mea ana a Manahi.

O 10 O £600 TIAKI TE PAKARU, of Oropi, Tauranga, writes that,—" Rota, of te Tawera, and his friend, Reweti, of Ngatipikiao, went upon a pig-hunting expedition in the bush. After proceeding about three miles their dogs fastened on to a pig, which they (the Natives) killed and left lying there, intending to take it up on their return. About the same distance further on they killed another pig, which they left also. Then they arrived at a broad stream, which they crossed, and ascended a ridge of u hill on the opposite side. Here Reweti endeavoured to per- suade Rota to return on their tracks, but Rota insisted ou their proceeeding onward, in the direction of the setting of the sun. At length, however, Rota agreed to return in the direction of the rising of the sun. Reweti then descended the hill to the broad stream which they had previously crossed; he then shouted to Rota, who answered him from above, but still continued to ascend the hill towards the setting of the sun. Reweti then started to return, and he arrived safely at the settlement, after sleeping one night in the bush on the way home. But Rota was lost in the bush, and has not yet been found, although parties are searching for him every day. He has now been absent for five weeks, and cannot be found. All his people of the Tawera have come here." [We should like to know whether the dogs returned with Reweti, or at any time after his arrival, or whether they are still absent ?] P. PARK te RANGIAHUTA, of Waikouaiti. — Your journey presents no points of interest, such as would make it interesting to our readers. The paper will be sent as required. MANAHI TUMATAHI, of Waerenga, Rotorua, says he caught a strange bird, of beautiful appearance, on Rotorua Lake, on the 20th of April last. It is larger than a goose, he says, and its neck measures 3 feet in length. The Natives think it came from some of the distant isles of the sea, and was driven on shore during a severe gale which blew on the day above named. " I gave chase to it," Manahi says, " in a small canoe, and caught
