THE MAORI MESSENGER. TE KARERE MAORI

VOL. VI.] AUCKLAND, AUGUST 31, 1859.--AKARANA, AKUHATA 31, 1859. [No. 18. WE feet ourselves called upon to offer a few observations on a subject which, we believe, at present frequently occupies the Native mind. From time to time we hear of reports being in circulation amongst them Ihe ten- dency of which is to disturb the friendly relations subsisting between the two races and to impair the confidence which the Maori people have hitherto placed in the Government. A vague and indistinct sus- picion of some imaginary harm intended them by their Pakeha neighbours is enter- tained by some of the less intelligent and well-informed, suggested probably in the first instance by the mischievous and disaf- fected.

Kai te awangawanga noa kei te tupato noa etahi, ara, tohunga ia kahore nei kia ata mohio noa kahore nei kia ata marama noa nga whakaaro, e mea ana, tenei ake nga tangata Maori whakakinoa ai, ahatia ai ranei, e o ratou hoa Pakeha. Na te hunga ngakau kino pea enei korero i te tuatahi, hei wha- katupu marie mana i te he. Heoi, ka mahi nei matou ki te whakamarama, he whaka- atuatu hoki tenei kia ata kitea ai, kahore rawa he take e tupatopato kau ai te ngakau o nga tangata Maori. He whakatakoto tenei
