News from Paeroa states that Wilkinson has returned from his visit to Paeroa's settlement, and left Pineaha behind. The Ngatihako tribe have agreed to come to the meeting at Paero«i, but Pakara and Wepiha adhere ,to what they paid and refuse to give themselves up to the Europeans. Wilkinson found them armed at the settlement with about twenty unarmed, the latter from Waitakaruru.
