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..
27 August 1864

Colonial Defence.- His Excellency the Governor has been pleased to announce the following appointments:- In the Napier Militia.- Ensign Vautier JANISCH, to be Lieutenant. Date of Commission, 28th July.1864;Alexander INGLIS, to be Ensign. Date of Commission, 29th Jyly,1864; In the Waipawa Cavalry Volunteers,- Lieutenant Thomas TANNER, to be Captain. Date of Commission, 22nd July, 1864; Cornet John Russell DUNCAN, to be Lieutenant, date of Commission, 22nd July 1864; Frederick Martin CHAPMAN, to be Cornet. Date of Commission, 22nd July, 1864. His Excellancy has also been pleased to accept the resignations of Captain Alfred D. CORFIELD and Lieutenant J.D.CANNING,
both of the Napier Militia- New Zealand Gazette, August 110.

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. We learn from a private letter received by this mail that Colonel RUSSELL, who upon proceeding to England was empowered by the Bishop to select a suitable clergyman as successor to Mr St.HILL, FAILING IN HIS SEARCH, GAVE UP HIS POWER TO ACT TO THE Rev.Mr.LAWRELL of London, who, on behalf of the Bishop, nominated Dr. SAYWELL. 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.

Commandant EDWARDS, of the Defence Force, Wellington, and Commandant WALMSLEY, of the Defence Force, Auckland, are both now in Napier. The former per Lord Ashley, and the latter by the Lady Bird.

Military-In the notices of army promotion we are glad to observe that the officer in command of the troops at Napier has been promoted to the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel.
In the army list we observe that Lieutenant-Colonel DWYER served in the trenches at the siege of Sebastopol and assault of the 18th of June, medal and clasp, Brevet Major, Knight of the Legion of Honor, 5th class of the Medjidee and Turkish medal. We heartily congratulate the Lieut.-Colonel on this promotion, which is certainly most richly deserved after 33 years' military service.
Otago
Dunedin August 20, On Monday last great excitement was occasioned in Dunedin by a report that a gentleman who had engaged a bed
at the Shamrock Hotel on /Sunday night had poisoned himself. The rumour turned out to be true:- The gentleman, Mr Joseph WOOLF, a well known brewer,bore the character of being fond of the gaming table, and after losses at "play" would occasionally become very much excited.(other details etc)- then Mr WOOLF, who was only about 35 years of age, was a widower and has left two children, a boy and a girl- both it said to be totally unprovided for. The jury after considering the case, returned the verdict of "poisoning himself while labouring under temporary insanity."

Public meeting of the unemployed was held at the Octogen on Monday, August 15. Between 700-800 men were present. Their six representatives urged provincial government to do something to ease the distress of working men and their families.
There were then two advertisements inserted into the paper:- Notice to Unemployed Laborers-30 Men can obtain Temporary Employment, at Bell Hill, on Thursday 18th inst. Application to Mr STODDART at the Gaol, during the day.

150 Men can obtain Temporary employment, on the Port Chalmers, Waikouaiti and Saddle Hill Roads, on Monday next, the 22nd inst.

Mr Charles WILLIAMSON, Warden at the Upper Shotover, was charged a few days ago before the Police Magistrate with having on the 30th of May last assaulted Eliza Emma POCOCK, with intent in doing so to ravish her.

Mr WILLIAMSON WAS IN "TROUBLE" BEFORE THIS CRIMINAL CHARGE, HAVING BEFORE BEEN ORDERED TO TOWN TO STAND AN EXAMINATION TO AN ALLEGED FRACAS WITH HIS CLE

Mr and Mrs Clarence HOLT left for Melbourne en route for England by the Aldinga on Thursday last. On his benefit night, to give his audience an idea of the financial difficulties he had to contend with he made the following statement-During the last two years he had paid
7000 pounds as rent for the Theatre; during the last twelve months, for benefits and charities 1300 pounds; to stars during the last fourteen months 6000 pounds; while the working expenses of the theatre, with the exception of rent and stars, has never benn under 200 pounds per week.- Notwithstanding the magnitude of these figures however, Mr HOLT was able to announce the balance on the right side of the ledger, and it is believed he has made 2000 pounds during his two years sojourn amongst us. The LYSTER Troupe are expected by the Alhambra, which was supposed to leave Melbourn last Monday; and at the conclusion of their engagement Mr.WOLFE re-opens the theatre for dramatic entertainments for 12 months..

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.
The Government steamers on the Waikato are now available for public use.
Steps are being taken to survey the whole extend of the Tauranga land, as natives have sold their share to the government for 2s an acre, only retaining the village sites promised them as entailed estates for their descendents. There is no word about THOMPSON and his tribe.
There have been only two arrivals from England since my last letter- The Ironsides and the Portland, bringing in all about 460 passengers to this province. Most of theser are 40 acre settlers, but a small proportion of each vessel consist of assisted immigrants brought out. About 8-10 ships are now supposed to be on their way to this port- to bring about 1200 settlers. Some of these are special settlement parties-two bodies of whom are to be settled in the north, one near Mongonui, our most northern settlement.
Two of the defaulting Captains of the Waikato Militia have been cashiered, and are to be tried before the Supreme Cout for a Military demeanour. It is thought that the charges cannot be sustained. The case of the Commissiariat officer demanding land from the Provincial Government on the ground they were military officers, has been tried before the Chief Justice and given in favour of the Province. Sir George ARNEY considering that combatant officers only were meant.

Tuesday Morning Aug 30-
The man WILSON, charged with the murder of YORKEY on Millers' flat in 1863, arrived per Airedale from Christchurch yesterday afternoon, and is now safely lodged in Dunedin Gaol. He is remanded until the 3rd proximo.

The "Black Diamond Catastrophe". Mr ASKEW's yacht has capsized at the Croixelles, and Mrs HAY wife of Captain William H HAY's
of the Brig "Black Diamond" and infant aged 13 months, Mrs Hay's brother (Mr George BUCKINGHAM from Auckland) aged 23 years and a 15 yr old servant have all been drowned. The Brig had been lying for the purpose of being caulked when Mrs Hay's determined to go to see Mrs RANKIN when hearing she was not in good health. (very full and graphic account). Mr Hay's was the only survivor and did his utmost to save all unsuccessfully.

Supreme court Sitting at trial of Alexander McLEAN for murder of his wife. Lasted 2 days and was going a further 1 more at least, with a locked jury.. He gave evidence that the gun was accidentally discharged when he went to shoot a hawk. He was overcome with anguish when he saw his wife had died and then determined to kill himself so they could both die together. Sixteen witnesses testified at uninterrupted harmony of their life together.

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. SAM.
The energetic pealing of the bell , however, brought Mr Ashwell no hearers, except Dr Sam, and suspicions began to dawn upon those of his companions that his congregation were either not very punctual in their devotions or had made an escape. Commander.PARKYN, of H M S Falcon was lying in the bay and information was conveyed. Authories were then informed. There was a fair wind blowing and after landing at the Thames by canoes which were seen in the area prior, they would be made welcome by THOMPSON.
They were believed to have made their way to the Kaipara and making their way towards the Nonconformist settlement of Albertland. Their chieftainship and prestige will not only have been recovered but increased by their outwitting the pakeha. It is expected that they will join MATTIEU's tribe, and thus stregthemed, the Native faud between MATTIEU and TIRERAU, cannot but be most grave and serious matter at the present time.

The Sale of the Ngaruawahia- the great event of the week has certainly been the sale of the township of Ngaruawahia or Queenstown.
