THE KING COUNTRY.
The “Waikato Times” has published important particulars regarding the last gathering of the Kingites at Kopua and Hikurangi. Tawhiao and Te Ngakau were absent, and the latter is in disgrace at Kawhia, in consequence of the want of tact lie displayed at the last meeting with Sir George Grey. Mr. Sheehan, Rewi, and a number of important men were present. Mr. White was invited, but he did not come. The King party feels antagonistic to Te Whiti, and no armed resistance will bo offered to the road or railway surveys. The King is concentrating his people at Kawhia, where are all the indications of a permanent settlement. Preparations are also being made for the visit of a large number of the Ngatatuwhareko, who are expected to settle on the south side of Lake Taupo. The King made a request to many of the chiefs to speak freely about the surveys, leases, and sales, and the “ Times” says : —“lt needs but one or two powerful chiefs to take the lead, when there would be a wish to open up the King country for settlement. ” On the whole, the position of native affairs in the King country is very satisfactory.
