31ST January Paper H.B.Tribune
Otago- Discovery of a 20 pound Nugget. "by the Queen" our dates are to the 25th inst. A nugget of 20 lbs has been found in the vicinity of Dunstan. The exact locality of the discovery is unknown, but it is conjectured that the nugget was found near the sources of the Manor Burn.
The escort arrived in Dunedin on the 24th, bringing the following quantities of gold:-
Wakatipu 13,072 (ozs) 15 ?dwts.
Dunstan 7,725 0
Tuapeka 8,222 15
Waitahuna 755 10
Woolshed 422 0
Total 25,208 0

Supposed discovery of a live Moan, near Lake Wakatipu- considerable interest and excietement has been created in Dunedin, by the discovery of a large bird, supposed to be the "moa" Details are that two miners James WALKER and Joseph SMITH were camped about 20 miles to the north of the workings at the Arrow River and observed on the spur of the hill above them, a large bird apparently seven or eight feet high. The bird sat down for 10 minutes and James Walker, who states that the bird is as tall as himself, and had a long head as large appatently as that of a horse. The bird then walked away. On the following morning they examined the tracks, when they found the footmarks of a bird with three large toes each a foot long and spread out a foot wide, a short toe five inches in length projecting behind. This account reaches us from a very reliable source, and the correspondent to whom we are indebted for the information, himself saw and questioned the men. It may be added that the droppings of a large animal have been discovered at the head of the lake by Messrs. BRADLEY and party,-Daily Times, Jan 31 1863

Miss RYE has arrived in Dunedin. The Daily Times of the 16th contains the following:"The passengers by the John Duncan, including more than 100 assisted female immigrants, selected and accompanied by Miss Rye, were brought up from the Port on Saturday by the Golden Age, which arrived alongside the new jetty at 2 o'clock.The female immigrants appeared to be of a superior class, and they all looked healthy and in good spirits and attracted a great deal of attention." From another part of this article we learn that this lady had made an inspection of the immigration barracks at Dunedin, the dirty appearance of which caused her to seek an interview with the Superintendent, to expostulate. This lady, says the New Zealanders, may shortly be expected in Auckland.

The schooner Excelsior is discharging her cargo of wool on board the Novelty, for Sydney, and will sail for Napier about Wednesday nest-Southern Cross, May 9.
The schooner Sea Breeze, from Napier, with cattle arrived last night, fourteen days out, having to put into Hick's Bay and laid there five days. She brings sixteen head into port; having lost fine on the passage. H.M.s.sloop Eclipse Commander MAYNE, was detained inside the bard on Tuesday on account of the tide..Crossed on Wednesday forenoon, and arrived in New Plymouth same night. About six o'clock observed a strange fire, which was at first supposed to be a ship on fire; altered course and stodd in for the light; was discovered to be on shore. On arriving at Taranaki they learnt the particulars of the massacre. Could this light have been a beacon fire to apprise the natives at a distance of the commencement of the ward? The Eclipse sails again to-day, and will return on Sunday.

Also from a private letter dated Auckland 9th inst, we learn that the greatest energy was in being displayed in despatching reinforcements and munitions of war; and it will be seen that a rumour had reached Wanganui to the effect that hostilities had actually begun- that the 57th, stationed at Tataraimaka, had been cut off from wood and water by the hostile natives, and had immediately attacked the enemy, killing 100 of them. Little reliance, however, can be placed upon this; although it is the very thing the 57th were likely to do upon hearing of the slaughter of their comrades.

On Monday next, the 1st June at half past 7 pm. A Preliminary meeting of the persons disposed to co-operate with the Dublin Committee for the erection of a National Minument to the memory of 0'CONNELL, will be held at the STAR HOTEL, to arrange proceedings.

Saturday May 2nd H.B.Herald, Important from Waikato.

Te Hapuka and his followers returned yesterday from Waikato.He reports that 500 of the Ngatimaniapoto have gone to Taranaki to join the Ngatiruanui and other tribes who dispute the Governor's right to Tataraimaka.
The King and William THOMPSON disapprove of this proceeding; but it seems that their advice does not prevail with the Ngatimaniapoto, who form the most numerous and powerful section of the Waikato tribes.
William KING, who has been kept as a kind of hostage by Waikato since the termination of hostilities at Waitara, has accompanied the Ngatimanipoto.
It is impossible to conjecture what course events may take, or are now taking, at Tataraimaka; but there is no doubt that most of the Waikato and all the Ngatiruanui are preparing for a conflict.

Local Intelligence.Public Holiday to celebrate the coming marriage of HRH THE prince of Wales.
Nelson news.-10th inst. A maori named POTIKI had been committed to take his trial for the murder of a settler, named William GRANT, at the Pelorus.

Two new passes to the Buller river had been discovered by Mr.CLARKE. It is referred to by the Examiner as a discovery of considerable importance. The Mina from London, arrived in Nelson on the 6th inst.

Transport is discussed for public attention-It was thought that the public tramway would be the cheaper and more permanent of two choices. (The other choice was not mentioned).

Southland
Mr.HARTLEY, the discoverer of the Dunstan Gold field, had lately returned from an exploring tour through this province. He explore the Takitimo mountains and the Waiau river up to the Te Anau Lake, but found no gold, and he expresses the oponion that there is no gold-bearing country in Southland.

A considerable report was written on the Character of Marshall St ARNAUD-"He impersonated, with singular exactness, the idea of which our fathers had in their mind when they spoke what they called a "Frenchman"; for although ( by cowing to the rich and filling the poor with envy) the great French Revolution had thrown a gloom on the national character."

Otago Our dates from this province are to Monday the 8th inst. On that day the detachment of the 70th in command of Major RYAN, left Dunedin for the seat of War. The rifle Volunteer corps formed a guard of honour upon the occasion.
On Friday the 5th inst., at half past 10 an unmistakable shock of earthquake was experienced in Dunedin.

At the Princess's Theatre on the night of the 6th, a new song, written by a gentleman in honour of the 70th regiment and apropos of the departure of the detachment for the north, was sung, solo and chorus. The first two verses were sung by the MARSH troupe, the third and last by George MARSH. He concluded the song with "Put your trust in Providence, but keep your poweder dry," there was a united burst of applause, such as never before heard with the walls.

Local Intelligence We learn that two King flags have been brought to this district from Waikato, and that these are likely to be erected- one at Petane and the other somewhere in the province. It is believed, however, that a love of novelty and excitement is at the bottom of this, and not any feeling of hostility towards the Europeans. We learn that measures of precaution are not being neglected. The enrolling of the mouinted constabulary force and organization of militia are being preceeded with. His Honor the Superintendent has been endeavouring, through arrangement with the New Zealand Shipping Co., to secure, during the continuance of hostilities, bi-monthly communication by steam with
Auckland.

Note one for listers. - from Elaine
Next Issue will deal with the Maori War at Taranaki- taken from
the papers. Anyone wishing for full transcripts of any events let me know


Note two for Listers. From Elaine
Do not be misled by places of Birth deaths and marriages in regard to place names. E.g. Northern Wairoa is not the same as Wairoa Hawkes Bay. The northern Wairoa is north of Auckland.

Also in Hawkes Bay lists. Mention of Kaikora- I have just learned myself that this is the old name for Otane Township.

Maori War Taranaki

H.B.Tribune June 17 1863
Please note this rather a large article and will try to give you a little background and resume of what was happening. Anyone wanting article as written by paper let me know. -Elaine

The arrival of the Storm Bird, yesterday morning, has brought us Auckland and Taranaki papers to the 6th inst, and news from the latter to the 9th- the Lady Bird having left on that day
for Wellington. On the 9th H.M.S.S.Harrier arrived at Taranaki with 500 troops from Sydney. She left at noon the same day for Manakau, with despatches for the Governo
It is now ascertained, that upwards of 70 of the enemy were killed in the action of the 4th. The Wanganui natives admit that, out of 51 of their tribe who were present at the engagement, 24 were killed.
This defeat has had a desponding effect on the tribes of the West Coast, although they endeavour to keep their spirits up by exaggeration of the loss on the part of the troops, and by magnifying the 600 soldiers who were engaged into 6000.
The Taranaki natives, however, do not seem to have been dispirited, as they planted an ambuscade, and fired at Messrs.PARRIS,CARRINGTON and others, on the very afternoon of the fight.
The Mataitawa natives, including HAPURONA and William KING'S more immediate followers, have joined the rest of the insurgents, which is considered by the people of Taranaki more satisfying than the neutral and doubtful attitude they have lately assumed. Tamati TEETO, the Taranaki prphet, is reported to have said to the Ngatiawas, "kil, and spare not."
The Taranaki Herald says that if among the Maories killed there are any Wanganui up-river natives, that settlement will be in a critical state.

Not a single word from Governor of Government has been said to show that the half-caste prisoner who was concerned in the late massacre is to be brought to justice. This has caused great dissatsfaction to all.
It appears that the letter of Mr.Domett to the Superintendent of Otago, on the subject of locating settlers on the land between Tataraimaka and Omata, was not intended for publication- only for purpose of ascertaining opinion of Superintendent on the subject. Taranaki correspondent of the
Advertiser believes there will shortly be another expedition south, and that great events were at hand.
He also says the bush rangers do their work well.Captain ATKINSON'S party have been out nearly every day, but not yet have come across any natives. They hope to interrupt some of the northerners on their way to join the southerners. They will be a match for any number of the enemy. They are all armed with breach-loaders- a very effective weapon in the bush.
General CAMERON returned public thanks to Militia and Volunteers for the very good will and zeal with which they had shared the arduous duty since commencement of hostilities. His Excellancy was conversant both with the country and the tribes that occupied it. The assassinations of the 4th May, sunk deep into his heart. He took determination to avenge the murders and given positive intimation to the offending tribe that, unless the murderers were given up within a month, he would avenge the murders. The resolution was characteristic of the man; and it was carried into effect with the same resolve and unshaken spirit that marked all his decisions during the Native wars of 1845-46"
The Action. The Taranaki Herald of the 6th inst. Supplies the following graphic account;

Papers Past Maori War Part 2.

With a detachment of the 57th from Oakura, together with Lieut.Pickard, R.A. and three ARMSTRONG guns and a detachment of the Mounted Artilleru, and Lieut.FERGUSON, R.E, with a sergeant and 6 men of the Engineers..-The whole force waited -including the 57th Tataraimaka detachment, under Col.WARRE,Lieut.Col. LOGAN,Capts. ,WOODALL ,RUSSELL, and SHORTT, LIEUTS, brutton,wallers,cox,Thompson, Adjt.CLARKE,, and Ensigns MANNERS ,DUNCAN DOUGLASS, and BRODERIP, as the advance-the 65th and 70th to follow as support.ARMSTRONG halted the battery and was posted on the edge of the river overhanging the Katikara river. Here the guns immediately wheeled up and fired into the native redoubt about 800 yards distant, directly inland- ther 57th at the same time doubling down the valley in single file to attack the rifles pits to the right of the enemy's position.The advance under Lieut.WALLER and Lieut.BRUTTON with their Colonel incommand, immediately rushed the rifle pits and drove the enemy to ! the mouth of the river, while supporting party under Lieut -Col.LOGAN,Captain SHORTT, and RUSSELL and Ensigns.MANNERS,DUNCAN and DOUGLASS, having being fire upon, turned to their left and over a open space of 300 yards, with fixed bayonets, stormed the place, killing every native found in it.Captain SHORTT with his party, and Captain RUSSELL with his, rushed the redoubt almost simultaneously, while Ensign DUNCAN WAS COMING OVER IT AT ANOTHER PART. Capt SHORT claims to be the first in, and Col LOGAN, who dismounted from his horse just outside went in immediately after. Nothing could restrain the impetuosity of the charge and the men behaved well

The General was highly pleased with the gallant manner in which the enemy's positions were carried and we are tole complimented Col.WARRE and his men on the spot "he ought to be proud to command such a fine regiment" The brunt of the action was borne by the 57th as will be seen by the list of casualties.

The bodies of the natives killed (24 in number) were brought to the Tataraimak camp in transport carts, and several persons asked if they could identify any of them. Only one was supposed by KOMENE to be Tamiti HONE oraukawa, CHIEF OF THE Ngaruahine division of the Ngatiruanui tribe, but it was almost impossible to tell from the fact that half of the head had been blown away by a shell. We therefore suppose that the natives killed were mostly from Wanganui. The loss of enemy has been estimated at 40 killed and a great number wounded. All these men who took part in the battle, the officers, and men who stormed the Maori positions, deserve the thanks of the whole Colony.The natives were taken by surprise and our casualties were mostly caused by the first volleys fired when the 47th rushed up.

Continuation of the Journal of events.

Thursday, June 4 1863- This day, exactly a month since the Wairau beach massacre, and exactly two since the occupation of Tataraimaka, will long be remembered by the Southern natives.
9am.Enemy completely routed with heavy loss and positions carried. Loss of one man killed and four wounded.
12 noon- Mr Jas BAYLY, a Tataraimaka settler, who accompanied the troops this morning said tropps have rushed a native postion about a mile and a half from the Katikara stream, near Johnny's flat, and at the point of the bayonet had killed every native in it. About 100 natives escaped before the place was rushed- it is known that 24 natives were brought to St.George's redoubt,three of whom were burnt in a wehare in the pa, and others were left in the fern. Tamati Hone ORAUKAWA, chief of the Ngatiruani is said to be on of them. Our casualties are; 1 killed, 2 mortally wounded, and 8 slightly wounded.

2pm.- The Eclipse has returned and has brought the body of the soldier killed and the wounded man. A portion of the troops engaged also came back in the ship.

7pm- we have just heard that an ambuscade of natives was laid this evening at Wairau beach, at the same sport where the massacre took place. On the 4th ultimo Messrs.PARRIS,CARRINGTON,INNES, and others were fired upon. The natives fire one volley and then decamped, but did not succeed in hitting anybody. This act on the part of the enemy shows they are not yet conquered. Subjoined is a list of casualties. 57th Regiment. Killed- Private Edward MARTIN.

Wounded-Private H.SHIPMAN,mortal, wound in head (since dead).

Private J.OSBORNE, dangerously, wound of abdomen(since dead).

Escaped prisoner called SHIELDS has been at large for more than a month. He was working with a chain gang, suddenly dropped his shovel and bolted into the hills with guards pursuing.He has been sighted att Oharua working on a farm. He used a shot barrelled gun and blasted away at the poor unfortunate who lay down with blood streaming down his face. He is a perfect desperado and twice before has escaped. From what I know, I don't think he will be taken alive.

A heavy gale has resulted in the loss of the ship ROYAL BRIDE, Captain Laker.It arrived in the Bay on 8th from London via Auckland with part of original cargo. Some idea of the force of the gale can be formed when wind gauge indicated max pressure of 25 lbs. When 12 lb denotes a storm, and 31 lbs a Hurricane. The strength of these winds with rain was unbelievable.

I subjoin the Maori version of the Taranaki affair to be found in the letter of a king native published in the Chronicle- "Friends,-The Taranaki mail has come.Pakehas and Maories have fallen.On Wednesday, the 3rd, the steamer came. Wanganui saw it; twenty men went out, and afterwards three more. Ther twenty saw a boat which they fired at, and it returned seawards. On turning round they saw the Pakahas, 500 of whom had come to the gate of the pa; the three, seeing them, fired on them, and the Pakahas fired on 200 of the Wanganui. EPIHA shouted! And when the smoke cleared the front rank had fallen. The Maories were then surrounded, and four ranks fell all dea. The pa was stormed. The dead (Hori PATENE) saw it; he took a gun-fired and killed-fired and killed.Four Europeans fell. He then seized another gun, which he threw away, and took a whalebone (paroa). He cried out, Farewell to the world! And went out; he spoke to MOHI, who went out too, and they fought side by side; that is all. The pa was overthrown and 12 killed, but with those in the night 25. Hori TAMAITI and TIPENE escaped. Never mind the Pakahas- who could count them? This is all. From REIHANA.

The Wanganui Chronicle received this morning confirms the assertion that the Maoris killed were mainly Southern and Wanganui natives. Among the slain of ther latter tribe were Hori PATENE,IHAIA,MEREKAI, Mohi TE HIKO, chiefs all of them, and 24 others of inferior rank. It seems the Wanganui natives have received a sickener, but I fail to gather from private letters what effect the recent defeat has had on the tribes of the West Coast. They are quiet as yet, but it is still impossible to say how long they will remain so.

MEETING AT PA WHAKAIRO.
New long looked for meeting in celebration of new opening of new Native Mill at Pa Whakairo held on Monday last. Excited considerable interest with 300 to 400 natives present giving a present aspect of unequalled and unrivalled importance to any previous meeting held in this district. The first speaker was a very venerable looking old chief named POROKURA, who, from age and infirmity, was unable to stand up. But he spoke very clearly and distinctly.He welcomed all European friends; and addressing the Superintendent, he said,- You have been invited by us to Hawke's Bay; no evil has hitherto arisen here; nor is it our desire that any should ever take place. Why then shoul you be erecting barracks and bringing police? Let other tribes settle their own affairs; we have nothing to do with them.. The Superintendent replied thanking him for expressing such friendly sentiments. He said reports had reached him from various sources, necessitating him to give protection to prevent spreading of sparks flying from a fire already kindled. And if resident natives felt such an interest in preserving peace as they had expressed, they should not in any way anxious about preparations which were intended for mutual defence. Ihaka WHAUNGA, of Table Cape, who accompanied the Superintendent exhorted the natives of Ahuriri to act with consideration and continued friendship towards the Europeans. Several other chiefs spoke at considerable length; among these were RENATA,KARAITIANA, AND Paora KAIWHATU. The tone of the speeches were considered very satisfactory. The Europeans were then regaled with an excellent dinner. The reception by the natives of their guests have been very cordial and we are glad to understand that a disposition is evinced to return in some way their repeated acts of hospitality.(Note there are a couple of very good letters from European settlers, thanking natives for their hospitality. Any one wanting complete copies of these to let me know) -Elaine.

Maxims for Husbands:- Resolve in the morning to be patient and cheerful during the day. Laugh heartily on finding all the buttons off your shirt-as usual. Say merrily, "Boys will be boys," when you discover the children have emptied the contents of the water jug into your boots. On gashing your face with a razor, remember that beauty is but skin deep; and, in order to divert your thoughts from the pain, recite a speech from Hamlet, or indulge in one of the harmonies of your own native land. If breakfast is not ready for you, chuckle and grin pleasantly at the menials; think that a merry heart is a continual feast, and depart for your daily business, imagining yourself a sufferer from indigestion.- Fun.

5th August 1863 (abridged my me)
Sea Breeze with papers tell a mournful tale of several murders been committed in cold blood, and the greater part of the population being engaged in Active Service. Hostile natives flocking to Waikato,Kaipar,Taranaki. Wairoa boats at Mahia. Mr CAMPBELL'S boats have captured 4 whales not very large, total yield only 7 tons.
Wairoa.
Reference to Waikato news. Natives here rather pleased than not, as they have a deep rooted hatred to the Waikatos.
Drury. Guards around Hotel which is under new management of Mr MILLS. 50 of the 18th under Lieut.RUSSELL (nephew of Col.Russell) late of the 58th came from camp at Wairoa Road. Replaced by 50 men of Col PITT's volunteers. Attack on Capt.CALVERT's house by natives. Capt.CALVERT did his best to protect his wife Mrs Calvert and his son a lad of 16 years. He defended his family with sword. They camer through the house and 1 bullet unfortunately wounded his son- who survived till reaching camp on the 18th where he shortly expired. Capt Calvert's shots wounded some of the natives who absconded. Lieut WRAY went out in search and several of them are supposed to have been wounded or killed..

We have just heard that an abuscade of natives was laid this evening at Wairau beach, at the same spot where the massacre took place on the 4th ultimo, who fired at Messrs.PARRIS, CARRINGTON,I NNES and others, who were riding back from Tataramaka in advance of the troops. The native fired one volley and then decamped, but did not succeed in hitting anybody. This act on the part of the enemy after the chastisement they received in the morning proves they are not yet conquered.

Province of Hawke's Bay; a notification that the restrictions lately published regarding warlike stores, were intended to be applicable only to those districts in which the natives are in arms against Her Majesty's government.
The Defence Force on the "Loose."-On Sunday afternoon, about thirty-eight of the men composing this force obtained from the Officer in command,Mr.Inspector La SERRE, leave of absence for the purpose of taking a ride. Not returning at the stipulated time, a picket, 28 strong, Under Corporal Hodges, was sent after them, and several made captive at or near the Meeanee Hotel. Of the remainder, so,e had gone to port and others to Havelock; but we learn they all have since returned to duty. We believe that the men allege want of grog and of relaxation as the cause of the feelings of disatisfation which led them to take this step.

Wairoa
The rumoured coming of the Uriweras have given place here to fears nearer home-the Matiti affair assuming a much more threatening aspect. Last Monday a number of inland natives came down and occupied the debateable ground,fully prepared to defend it, but they encountered no opposition-the church proposed to be erected bty Mita PATRA'S adherents being abandoned.
The inland natives previously stated that they would not allow it to be built. But, although this point has been conceded, they now required that Miti PARA should leave the place altogether. To this his friends will not consent, and so the case stands at present. >Henari te APATERE is dangerously ill. >Kopu PARAPARA, one of the principal chiefs, says that, in the event of the safety of the European resident here being com-promised, he will place his vessel at their service and land them where they choose.

Rock in Hawkes Bay
Following report made by Capt.GIBSON of s.s. AUCKLAND upon arrival of that ship in Wellington. It is strange that a rock in the direct line of traffic to and from the port should have remained so long undiscovered; and it is fortunate that no serious casualty has attended the discovery. We trust the Government will lose no time in placing a buoy over this hidden danger:-(note from Elaine. Do you think that this was Pania????)>

the Great South road, between the fouth and fifth bridges, in which two of our men were killed and one wounded and 23 stand of arms taken by WILLAIMSON's clearing cuting timber . Escort was late instead of meeting at MARTYN's farm, the proper place for the meeting, they proceeded to RUTHERFORD's.Captain COOK, who was in command of the escort, had his suspicion aroused by seeing a tall column of white smoke and shortly aftereards hearing the gunfire. He and the 40th, joined by a detachment of the 18th from Razor Back under Ensign HAYNES, endeavoured to regain possession of the arms. Although unsucessful they shot several, and prevented the enemy carrying away two of his dead. One 12th man was wounded, not seriously.One of the Maoris, a very tall man, was at last despatched with a bayonet thrust after taking ! 6 shots.
A detachment of the 70th from the return Drury arrived at the end of the engagement. Captain CLARKE, of the Transport Corps, distinguished himself in this affair.

Oct 28 1863

Daring and successful expedition.-On the 13th inst, Mr Von TEMPSKY, of the bushrangers, and Mr MacDONNELL, of the Defence corps, started on a secret expedition to the front; they stayed the following day at Wangamarino and its neighbourhood, viewing as much of the ground as possible from the high ground. When darkness came they turned their steps towards Pararata, proceeding cautiously so no tracks were left. They saw by lucky change natives engaged in pigeon-shooting for a considerable portion of the day; They heard converstations, grunt of a pig, and yelp of dogs and found themselves in a most uncomfortable position not at all to be envied. Where the track to Wangamarino diverges from the Meremere track they lay hidden waiting for the man on a greay horse whom they expected to return with despatches. They waited, and waited but the gentleman did not arrive. They went back to the Wangamarino stockade, where they were most hospitably received by all the officers stationed ! there. These two gentlemen returned to their quarters next day. Mauka report Major RYAN had reached Mauku with 100 of the 70th and 100 of the 18th. A portion of the defence force was there, under Col.NIXON. Startling reports are hourly reaching Drury, and our forces and the rebels are said to be engaged.
Natives mustered at the Bald Hills, at the Mauku, to the number of 500. Between 8 and 9 this morning, some 40 volunteers, under Lieut LUSK, went out, and then were seen and the Lieut immediately sent a messenger for reinforcements. The volunteers at this time did not receive injury, but a number of natives were not so fortunate. The uneven contest was between 14 of our volunteers and 400 - 500 armed natives. The men gallantly fought their way out of the bush but not without loss. Lieut PERCIVAL fell mortally wounded, a bullet having passed through his neck. Two of the Waikato volunteers were also shot, and seven of their comrades were missing. The dead and wouinded were left on the field. Among those missing, six are supposed to be Victorians, and one a Mauku volunteer.Lieut NORMAN, second Commander of the first Waikato Regt. left ther Mauku. On his arrival he found his comrades engaged, and joined them. He was amongst the missing. When Liut PERCIVAL fell several of his men ! attempted to remove him from the field. The gallant fellow would not allow them or permit them to do this, recalling them to their duty. "leave me alone.".
