THE MAORI MESSENGER. TE KARERE MAORI. VOL. IV.] AUCKLAND, SEPT 30, 1857. AKARANA, HEPETEMA 30, 1857. [No. 9. FROM time to time we have heard of a move- ment going forward among our Waikato friends about which we wish to say a few words. The origin of this movement we believe to be good, though we must blame the course which some of its promoters are taking. We wish to caution our friends who are concerned in the proceedings to which we refer against being led into an act of folly. It has been proposed by some of the tribes to give to a Maori chief the title of King of ? sew Zealand, and to cast off allegiance to the Queen.

Na, kahore rawa he pai e puta mehemea e whakaritea ana tenei kupu, en- gari, he kino tona putanga, nui atu. Ka tau ki runga ki nga iwi e pa aua ki taua mahi, ko te whakahe a te Kawanatanga tetahi, ko te kata hoki a etahi atu iwi maori ano, me te riri ano hoki a etahi, a tona tukunga iho, he he anake, he raru, he pouri noa iho. Ko te tokomaha o nga tangata e whaka- nui nei i tenei tikanga, kaore i mohio ki ta ratou e mahi nei, kahore i mohio, ko te aha ranei, ko te aha ranei, te whaia ana e te
