IN CUSTODY. . [BY TBLEQGAriI.] Wellington, To-day. The Government at 11 a.m. received the following from Mr Bryce : —“ Arrived atParihakaat 9a.m. and found Marae enclosure jammed. Butler was directed to call on Te Whiti, and get an answer to the proclamation. Te Whiti did not reply. At 9.30 the Biot Act was read, and one hour will be allowed to elapse by law. The marae will then be surrounded. Hiroki is there. The natives are dressed in holiday fashion and seemingly with no intention other than passive resistance. Te Whiti told the natives to sit close and be stout-hearted.” At 11.30 the Government received a message that Te Whiti, Tohu, and Hiroki, had been captured without any resistance. Patea, To-day.
A number of strange young natives are hanging round the deserted pah at Manutahi. This morning the settlers were alarmed and had a meeting, and sent a mounted messenger here to telegraph to the Government for arms. A number of the Wood villa settlers came in yesterday with their bag and baggage.
