1869. "MANUWHWIRI, the Maori King's prime Minister together with
a note from the same personage, and as these documents will throw considerable
light on the subject, I have deemed it desirable to forward the letters
in question with their translations to you, and respectfully request that
you will be good enough to insert the same in your valuable journal. Should
you accede to my request, perhaps you will kindly forward slips to the
Daily Southern Cross, as similar remarks injurious to the Maori King party
have, it is presumed, found their way into the columns of your contemporary.-
Friendly one, salutations, friendly one, It was lost, but it is found. Some men have been captured at Ngaruawahia. I have sent a letter requesting their liberation. It is said that the grounds on which their capture took place are guns carried by them from our villages. Our word was right, namely, that the Waikato be not interfered with. Now this is it- they have begun to exasperate again. Friend, the only thing that will bring about the establishment of peace is what we two know.
If you are clear, about this matter, publish it in the press.
To Mr SEARANCKE, Magistrate of Waikato.- Your letter has come relative to the men who have been slain [got into trouble] at Ngaruawahia.
Son, they know that if it were now as formerly [i.e., if war were raging] they would not have returned by that way. They supposed that guns could be taken to Orahira without any intervention. They mad a mistake about this. Reaching Hangatikithe seeing by us was there [i.e. the Maories who met at Hangatiki some time ago from Lower Waikato, &c., were armed].
This is a word to you-you are a Magistrate. Allow them to come hither with their property [i.e. with the guns &c.] I did not act thus [i.e., did not retain possession of your warlike stores] formerly in reference to a gun which belonged to the Europeans, but then be it remembered the fire was still burning [i.e., the war was still raging], and I sent back a repeater gun which was taken by the Maoris at Kawhia.

Lieut-Colonel McDONNELL had also arrived from Wanganui with a small additional force, and more were expected to follow. It is believed that Lieut-Colonel McDonnell will head.the move against against Te Kooti. He is eminently fitted to do so, with a force such as is now available at Taupo.From Runanga we hear that Henare TOMOANA and his 120 men will leave there to-morrow for Taupo, and form a junction with the force under Colonel McDonnell. Kooti's present position is uncertain; he may have returned again to Waikato, or he may be hanging about the shores of the Taupo Lake, in which latter case we hope Colonel MoDonnell may he able to give some account of him.
Lient-Colonel McDonnell arrived in Napier last evening,
but we have not heard of any later intelligence, beyond that four scouts
left at Rotoaira by Hare Tauteka are missing, and are believed to have
been killed. Lieut.-Colonel McDonnell returns to Patea this morning.

Defeat of Te KOOTI.
The following important news was received last evening.
On Saturday, the 25th inst, Te KOOTI, with a force of between 280 and 300 men, attacked Tokano pah, which was held by a force of 249 friendlies, composed of the Hawke's Bay natives, the Arawas, and POIHIPI's people.
Colonel McDONNELL, who was on a visit to the pah, attempted with his escort, to reach Rotoaria, where KEMP's people were located, with a view of bring them up, but was unable to do so, being fired upon by the enemy. He then returned to Tokano and placed himself at the head of the friendly natives.
A severe engagement ensued, which resulted in the enemy being driven off. Cover after cover had to be evacuated, until at length he turned and actually ran for it.
The enemy left seven bodies on the field, and were seen to carry oof aa great many more. Their loss is reported to be 30 killed and wounded. The Hau Haus had plenty of ammunition- between 40 and 50 rounds of Enfield being found in the cartouche box of each dead man.
The fighting took place on a hill covered with high ferns and scrub, and rifle pitted. The friendly natives behaved exceedingly well; also Capt St GEORGE and Lieut. PEARCE, both of whom were in the thick of it."

"IMPORTANT FROM TAUPO
ENEMY ATTACKED AND 35 men killed
Death of Capt. St. GEORGE.
Intelligence was received by the General Government agent, late on Wednesday evening, of a brilliant success gained by the Colonial forces under Lieut-Col McDONNELL over Te KOOTI and his band of desperadoes. The official detailed report is note yet received; but we learn that, after long continued delay consequent on the inclemency of the weather, our forces, on the Morning of Monday last, the 4th inst, attacked Te KOOTI in his position at Tutitauroa, a wooded hill at the north end of Rotaira Lake, when our men, European and native, gallantly stormed his position, which they carried, killing in the assault 35 of the enemy, including some of their principal leaders. Our loss, though small, includes, we regret to say, Capt. St. GEORGE; besides whom only two natives were killed and two wounded. Te KOOTI himself is said to have bolted when the Colonial forces were seen approaching. At the date of the despatch, Col McDONNELL was engaged in following up the Hau Hau force. While congratulating our readers upon this great success, it is sad to think it has not been achieved without severe loss, in the death of so gallant a officer as Captaian St. GEORGE- one who has always been foremost in the numerous engagements he has taken part in, and who has doubtless lost his life through that daring and chivalrous spirit for which he was distinguished. We are sure the settlers of this province- by whom the lat Capt. St. GEORGE was well known and musch esteemed as an early settler in Hawkes Bay- will deeply sympathise with his friends in the loss they have sustained."

The following is the list of killed and wounded at Porere, on October 4:-
Killed- Capt St. GEORGE, gunshot wound through head;
Wounded- Lieut TUREI( Wanganui Contingent), gunshot wound
through chest, dangerous; RENATA (Ngatikahungunu Chief), injured eye;
Total- Killed 4; wounded, 4."
We have since learned that Lieut. TUREI subsequently died of his wounds. On all hands we hear that this engagement was a most spirited and admirably conducted affair.
Next article an account has been abridge my me- Elaine)
"On the night of Friday last, Lieut.Col McDONNELL,
with five day's rations, entered the bush in quest of Te KOOTI and his
remaining followers. He had been somewhat delayed through the overtures
made by Te HEU HEU but ultimately, the sincerity of that individual began
to be questioned, and the gallant Colonel started in pursuit.
>From a correspondent Clyde, Oct 9th,
"The native I wrote to you as having escaped from the lock-up, a week or two back is still at large, and no steps have been taken to re-capture him. I allude to the native WAATA. This course must have had a very bad effect upon the native mind, more particularly as regards the tribe to which he belongs.
LATEST FROM TAUPO
The following statement is made by Te HEU HEU in regard to Te KOOTI:-
"In the engagement of the 4th inst, Te KOOTI, whilst obtaining caps from his waistcoat pocket, was struck by a bullet, which cut one of his fingers completely off, and smashed his thumb and another finger, and passed through the fleshy part of his side. Te KOOTI, he adds, was barely able to escape, owing to the pain he was suffering from his wounds.
Te Kooti, had 50 of the Chatham Island prisoners with him, who suffered severely from the engagement. He had also some of the principal Urewera chiefs and their people, and had received a letter from HAKARAIA to the effect that he and his hapu were on their way to join him.'
