THE ROW WITH THE MAORIS.
Capture of Kereopa[Pee Pkess Association Special.] [by telegraph.] PoNGAEUHtJ, To-day. The Nelson men marched for Opunake this morning. A number of the Ngariuaniua were sent home under escort. Kereopa for whom search has been made for some time, was captured here this morning, and sent to the Parihaka camp. Nine men and one woman were taken prisoners at the Parapara fences last night. Arresting was continued this morning; 178 Taranaki natives have been taken. The number of Ngatiawas sent away this morning was 270, 86 remaining, who are still in custody at Fort Rolleston, and they along with those arrested to-day, will probably be dispersed to-morrow. Captain Messenger and Messrs Hursthouse and Parris are in the pah, identifying people. More will be taken this afternoon. About 800 Maoris in all have now been taken out of the pah, and there are more than the number still left in it. Everything else is quiet. The weather is dull and threatening. New Plymouth, To-day. About twenty - live of the Taranaki Mounted Rides, in charge of Captain Davidson, came in last night end left again at seven o’clock this morning for the Waitara and northern Maori settlement. Their visit is for the purpose of searching every native settlement between the town and White Clifts for fire-arms, and all they find will be impounded, so that the natives throughout the district will be thoroughly disarmed. The Ngatirui natives, who left Pungarehu yesterday, were got within about four miles of Oakura last night. It was slow work getting the men to move. The women went first and the men followed. They are expected in town about two o’clock. It is proposed to have an address of thanks to the Volunteers drawn up and handsomely lithographed, and each member who assisted in the demonstration will be presented with a copy.
