TE KITENGA O TA TANARA MAKARINI RAUA KO TAWHIAO. No roto i nga nupepa Pakeha nei nga korero kua taia ki raro iho nei, mo te kitenga a Ta Tanara Makarini i a Tawhiao, ara:— AREKEHANARA, Wenerei, Mei 24. I te ata o tenei rangi ka haere te Minita mo te taha Maori ki te huinga o te awa o Mangapouri ki Waipa; ona hoa haere ko Te Kepa, Te Wheoro, Mahara, Puihi, Reweti (kai-whakamaori), me Meiha Mea, Kai-whakawa. I reira nga waka e rua e tatari ana ki a ratou. Ko te Kepa Komihana, ko Meiha Mea, ko Reweti i eke ki runga ki tetahi waka, ko etahi i eke ki runga ki tetahi waka Katahi ka hoe whakarunga nga waka ki Kaipiha, e wha maero te pamamao atu, i reira ka eke ratou ki uta. Ko te whare o Renao i whakaritea hei whare nohoanga mo ratou. Muri tata iho o to ratou taenga atu ki reira ka huihui nga Maori ratou ko Tawhiao ka waiata i te waiata o to ratou Karakia hou, Hau Hau nei, he wha- karere i te kai waipiro tetahi o nga tikanga o taua karakia. I ahua pai ta ratou waiata, engari i kotahi tonu te rangi a mutu noa. Ko nga kupu o taua waiata he kupu ano no te karakia Hau Hau tawhito etahi, he kupu hou etahi; ko to te Hau Hau nei ano tona mutunga, ara—" Kororia hau tu rire rire hau." I te mutunga o te karakia ka taona he kai ma nga Maori ki te hangi Maori nei ano; ko te kai ma nga Pakeha i takaia a Pakehatia e nga tangata o Renao raua ko Tana. I pai rawa te whakatakotoranga o te tina ma te Minita mo te taha Maori, me nga Komi- hana tokorua, a te Kepa raua ko te Mea; ko etahi o nga Pakeha na Renao i atawhai i te whare o Tana. He nui te manaaki a Renao raua ko Mihi Tana i nga Pakeha, ko te mahinga hoki o te kai i rite tonu ki ta te Pakeha. I te mutunga o te kai ka haere atu a Tawhiao ratou ko ona hoa ko Hunia te Ngakau, ko Takerei, ko Tuhi,, ko Hona te Maioha, kia kite i te Minita mo te taha Maori, a karangatia ana ia e ratou ki ta te Maori tikanga. Te kahu o Tawhiao he kahu kiri kuri, (he topuni, he kahuwaero, he aha ranei,) tona kahu o roto, he kahu rangatira Maori (he kaitaka pea). He kakahu Pakeha to te Ngakau. I ru marire a Tawhiao ki nga Pakeha katoa. He ahua rangatira tonu tona ahua. He tangata moko, ko te ahua o tona kanohi he ahua marama, ahua mohio. He pera hoki te ahua o te kanohi o Hunia te Ngakau, engari he totokau, he kiri tea hoki, he kiri marama. I tono a Tawhiao kia noho tonu a Ta Tanara ki reira i taua po, he manaaki nana i a ia. I ki hoki ia kia hoatu ko tona kahu ake ano ki a Ta Tanara. Ko Ta Tanara, ko Meiha Mea, ko te Puihi, ko te Wheoro i noho tonu i Kaipiha; ko etahi i hoki ki Arekahanara. Apopo rano pea te tu ai te korero. I homai e Tawhiao tetahi poaka ora hei hora mana ki a te Minita mo te taha Maori, a whakahokia ana ano taua poaka ki a Tawhiao e te Kepa Komihana, ki runga ki a te Maori ana ritenga. Ko Tamati Pokiha, hawhe-kaihe, o Waipiro, kei waenganui o Turanga o Waiapu, kua hoko i tana paparakauta me tana toa ki tetahi tangata Maori i mua tata ake nei, e rima mano pauna te utu. Kihai i rahi rawa te moni a Tamati i te timatanga o tana mahi hokohoko i era tau e toru kua taha nei. TERMS OF SUBSCRIPTION. The Subscription to the Waka Maori is 10s. per year, payable in advance.

MEETING OF SIR DONALD MCLEAN WITH TAWHIAO. THE following account of the meeting of Sir Donald McLean with Tawhiao appears in the Pakeha papers:-— ALEXANDRA, Wednesday, 24th May. This morning the Native Minister, accompanied by Major Kemp, Te Wheoro, Marshall, Bush, Davis, (interpreter), and Major Mair, R.M., walked to the junction of the Mangapouri stream with the Waipa River. Here two large canoes, manned by Natives, were in waiting. Commissioner Kemp, Major Mair, and Davis embarked in one canoe, and the rest in the other. The canoes paddled to Kaipiha, four miles up, where the party landed. Reynolds' house had been prepared for their reception. Soon after landing the Natives assembled with Tawhiao, and chanted the new Karakia or Hau Hau service, one of the tenets of which is abstinence from intoxicating liquors. The chant was pleasing but in monotones, and the language a compound of the old Hau Hau Karakia, with addi- tions. It ends with the usual " Kororia hau tu rire rire hau." After the Karakia food was cooked in hangis for Natives, and for Europeans by Reynolds' and Turner's people in English fashion. Dinner was served for the Native Minister, Commissioners Kemp and Mair in excellent style, and the other Europeans were handsomely entertained by Reynolds at Turner's house. Reynolds and Miss Turner did all possible to render the guests comfortable, and the dinner was equal to any English table. After dinner Tawhiao. accompanied by Hunia Te Ngakau, his principal adviser, Takerei, Tuhi, and Hona te Maioha, counsel- lors, paid a visit to the Native Minister, and welcomed him in the Native fashion. Tawhiao was attired in an undressed dogskin mat over a handsome chief's mat. Ngakau was in European clothes. Tawhiao shook hands with all the Europeans. He looks every inch a chief. He is tattooed, and has muscular features, regular and intelligent. Ngakau has very intelligent features and a very bright complexion, not tattooed. Tawhiao invited Sir Donald to remain for the night. This is a mark of high respect. He said he would give Sir Donald his own mat. Sir Donald, Major Mair, Mr. Bush, and Te Wheoro remained at Kaipiha. The others returned to Alexandra. The real business begins to-morrow. Tawhiao made a present of a live pig to the Native Minister, which Commissioner Kemp, Maori fashion, again presented to Tawhiao. Tamati Fox, a half-caste, at Waipiro, between Gis- borne and the East Cape, sold a public-house and store lately to a Native for £5,000. Fox commenced business about three years ago with but little money.
