THE MAORI MESSENGER. TE KARERE MAORI. VOL. IV.] AUCKLAND, OCT. 31, 1857.—AKARANA, OKETOPA 31, 1857. [No. 11. WE have much pleasure in publishing in the present number of the Messenger, several speeches made by Ngapuhi Chiefs at a meet-ing held at Mongonui, Mr. Commissioner i Bell and the Resident Magistrate, Mr. White, | being present. It is gratifying to observe that the Nga- i puhi, who were the first tribes in the Island to welcome the Europeans to their shores, still continue to manifest the best feelings towards them.

Ehara ra enei iwi erua, te In-garihi me te Maori, i te iwi mauahara, a, kua ngaro katoa tenei te riri me te ngakau kino, kua male ke, kahore e maharatia. Inaianei, he hiahia to tetahi to tetahi kia mau tonu te atawhai me te whakakotahitanga. He whakapai ano hoki ta matou ki le Uka o to Ngapuhi mahi mo le whenua i riro i te Pakeha te hoko. Kua hokona am e ratou tetahi wahi whenua, kahore rawa e hoki mai ki le tono hoki i le utu, kia rua, kia toru nga homaitanga utu, a, kahore hoki i wha-kanekehia nga rohe tawhito i whakatako-toria e o ratou matua.
