[by telegraph.] Haweea, July 28. The Star says that, despite Government’s contradiction, it believes its information regarding the cause of natives fencing is reliable. The Plains natives, especially young men, are going to Parihaka this week. This is earlier than usual. Four young men rode through here this morning; on being .asked if-they were going to Parihaka, one of them replied that they were going to be taken prisoners next week. A person from the camp says he will not be surprised if a very largo body of Maoris go on with the fencing within the next few days." There is no excitement amongst the Europeans, but- many ’enquiries as to what it all means; and when it will end. ; .
