Ko te Wata, Komihana, me te Mira, te tangata nana i hanga taua kura, me nga Maori e 60, i kai tina katoa i taua ra, a i whai-korero etahi o ratou, he mea whakawhetai ki taua mahi. I whakapai a te Wata ki te kaha me te tohe a nga Maori o taua takiwa ki te tango mihini patu witi, mihini tapahi witi, me te whakatu toa hokohoko i roto i a ratou, a i ki hoki ia ka nui tona hari ki te mea kua tu nei he kura TOO ratou hei whakaako i a ratou tamariki. Ka tu te kanikani i te 8 haora o taua po tae noa ki te 3 haora o te ata e kanikani ana, he nui rawa hoki te hari me te ngahau o ratou katoa; kaore he waipiro i tukua ki roto ki taua mahi, me te kore o te tutu i roto i a ratou. E toru ra ki muri kua tae ki te 24 te nui o nga tamariki i haere ki taua kura, haunga nga mea haere ki te kura i te po e whaka- turia ana e te kai-whakaako—te 18 hoki era.

Watt, Esq., Native Officer, the builder of the school, (a Mr. Miller), and about 60 Natives, we are informed, sat down to dinner on the occasion, and a number of complimentary speeches were made. Mr. Watt praised the Natives of that district for their energy and perseverance in procuring threshing machines and reaping machines, and for establishing stores among themselves, and said he was proud to see that they had now a school for the education of their children. Dancing was kept up from 8 o'clock that night till 3 o'clock next morning, and everybody enjoyed themselves exceedingly. No grog was allowed, and consequently there was no disagreement or disturbance. Three days afterwards 24 children were enrolled on the books, and 18 we're to attend the night school about to be opened by the master. WIREMU TE TUWHERA, of Mahinepua.—We have received 10s. from Mr. Williams on account of Wiremu Weka, of Mahi- nepua, but nothing on account of Wiremu Tuwhera.
