The Imperial Government have very distinctly expressed their intention of taking away the troops now, in the Colony, in no very gradual manner, after the end of the year 1864. Mr CARDWELL, in his place in the House, seems very distinctly to have given such a pledge. The first of the Regiments to go with be the 70th, and their departure may be reckoned upon in the month of January.This may seem premature to the colonists.
B troop (Capt ANDERSON's)will be again stationed at Waipawa,
and the A Troop(Capt La SERRE's) at the stockade, Waipuna..
The incumbent of Napier- as would be seen from our extra of Thursday,- The Rev.Dr. SAYWELL- is now on his way to this province, by way of Auckland.

The latter, who accepted the offer partly on the score of his health, de preparations for his departure. He was then curate of a large parish under a grandson of the late Duke of Marlborough. He is married, aged 35, and, though not strong, equal to a good amount of work. He is said to be a gentleman well fitted for his new sphere of labour, and we wish him God speed.

Same old story about the warnews. None, or next to none,
stirring, and every one waiting in anxious expectation for something to
turn up to enliven the scene. In some respects it has been lively, with
a continual momevent amongst the troops, Imperial and Colinial, for the
last week or two The Waikato men having been moving out, and the soldiers
gradually moving in towards town. The 50th Regiment, which so long held
the post of honour in the Horatin at Maungatautari, (I beg its pardon)
Cambridge, has now come in to the camp at Otahugu, and its old headquarters
at the front row now form the principal village of the third Waikatos.
Scarcerly any of the Waikato regiments remain anywhere near Auckland now.
There are quite a few of the 4th still at Onehunga and the Wairoa, and
some of the first not yet out of the Transport corps as well as garrisoning
one or two leading posts between Drury and Meremere, but this is nearly
all. The 2nd, the 3rd, and most of the 4th are on their lands- which so
far at least as far as town sections are concerned, have been divided
up by lot- and they are now in the process and very busy in pitting up
huts of various kinds at differenct places round the redoubts.

Auckland- The Escape of the Maori Prisoners. 9From the
Southern Cross Sept 13) The town was thrown into a considerable state
of excitement yesterday by the report that the Maori prisoners, to the
number of 200, the most of whom were captured at Rangiriri, had taken
Maori leave of their guardians, and had effected their escape frim the
Island Of Kawau, to the main land. This report has come from Mr JohnWHITE
the Maori interpretor.. Kawau as most of our readers are aware is not
far distant from the main land-probably not more than two miles. Captain
KRIPPNE's company of the Waikato Militia had been relieved at the charge
of them, no doubt much to the gratification of both parties. The mistake
was made with only four Europeans left in charge of them, viz, the warden,the
Chaplain(the Rev Mr ASHWELL), the interpretor (Mr John WHITE), and Dr.
