ALEXANDRA.

This Day. Mr. Jackson was at Kopua all yesterday ; Mr. Whitaker, jun., is here, and emissaries everywhere. Heaven and earth are being moved to frustrate an amicable settlement. The land speculators are making a tactical point of Kopua. It is understood that Mair has an influential interest in Wahine, known as Te Runga, which is a word by accident singularly suggestive of the ultimate result of a party which is trying to embroil the country in difficulties. Manuhiri has sent a messenger down to get a reply from Sir George Grey and Mr. Sheehan to his invitation. It is understood here that Rewi's invitation: emanated from Te Whanui, and with; the leading Ngatimaniapoto chief's con- 1 sent. The Waikato and Ngatimaniapoto met to-day to discuss the programme for Sir George Grey. Te Wheero is up the river a mile and a half from Alexandra. The Ngapuhi will not proceed up to-day.
