NEW ZEALAND

(Per Press Association.) Maori ItemsHawera, To-day. A gentleman just returned from the new camp stalei that there are 170 men there under the command of Major Goring and Captain’s Newan and Fortesque. He goes on—The camp is about five miles from Piringarehei, and not far from the old camp at Pukehinau. The men will be employed in road making between Pingarehei and Opoua. The fence at the Opunake side is not a recent erection ; it has been there for five or six months, and encloses two acres of potatoes. The road is impassable, as it was merely scratched last year, and not formed. The fencing at Waitaki has no political significance, so far as I can learn. There are some old clearings and burial places in the vicinity. It is not improbable that some reserves may be made there. The ringleader, although recently returned from prison, says that the pakeha will not again get a chance of putting him in Lyttelton Gaol. The natives appear notorious for the subdivision qf their holdings, and Sir Wm. Fox is likely to have a busy time of it. The fire af Farjhaka' wag a yery small affair, and but little damage wag dpp§.
