Reprehensible Conduct of Volunteers [by telegraph.] Pungarehu, To-day.
At daylight this morning the natives were assembled in the meeting-house; they were quiet, and treated those who were successful in getting into the pah in a friendly manner. Chief Rangipuhuahoaho addressed the people last night. This is one of the chiefs who was imprisoned at Dunedin, and addressed the natives while in custody. He takes a prominent part in the management of affairs at Parihaka. It has transpired that several pigs belonging to natives have been killed by volunteers. Major Atkinson returned to camp this morning. The Mounted Rifles left Pungarehu for Parihaka this morning, taking with them the sixpounder Armstrong. It is now raining heavily, the first wet day the volunteers have had under canvas^
