(by telegraph.) (limes Special.) Okato, March 28. A telegram has been received in camp from Colonel Whitmore, announcing that ho will visit the Plains. He is expected here to-morrow. Speculation is rife as to whether his visit is official or private. It is not unlikely that Government has asked him to consult with the commanding officers here relative to the plan of operations in the o\ ent of war. Yesterday, the unemployed were armed for the first time with Entields, and drilled. Since the late Parihaka meeting, Te Whiti has been very pouri, and is credited with having said that the first soldiers who crossed the Waipenu (the boundary between Punata and Parihaka) will die. Tohu’s influence is evidently in the ascendancy.
