Since the present Government have taken office the number of volunteer companies in the metropolitan districts of Auckland, Wellington, Canterbury, and Otago has decreased by twelve, but there has been a satisfactory increase in the number of men enrolled, and the total number of volunteers in those districts is larger than last year. The Government have forwarded instructions to the Agent-General to secure 500 MartiniHenry rifles for use at the New .Zealand Rifle Association meeting at Dunedin. It is expected theßO will shortly arrive in the colony. It is understood that the Governmont intend to increase the capitation grant to volunteers.

Lord Onslow has intimated to Lieu-tenant-colonel Hnme, commanding the New Zealand volunteers, his surprise that he was not invited to attend the review of volunteers on the Queen's Birthday, and a probable parade of the town and Wairarapa volunteers will be called for the Governor's inspection. Government intend holding a trial of the Whitney ammunition at both Christchurch and Dunedin.
