A new drill instructor from the Bifle Brigade arrived from Winchester, on Tuesday, and will commence drilling at once. Captain Nioholl, the adjutant, has for several weeks been most assiduous in drilling the 10th and 16th oorps, and it is to be hoped that they will have an oppor- tunity shortly of drilling with the regulars. Sach an event did occur some years Bince with her Majesty's 94th Begiment and the 10th, and the manner in whioh the volunteers were received by officers and men of the 94th was highly appreciated.

The various officers were re-elected. The report of the directors to the 31st of December last (whioh was signed by Mr. Chas. Thompson, the vice-chairman) showed that the net revenue of J61,259 14S.

SAD DEATH OF A CHILD.âAn inquest was held on Wednesday, before Mr. E. B. Beeoe, on the body of Mary Millward, a little girl three J ears of age, who died in the arms of her aunt, use Millward, at Dr. Pratt's surgery, on Sunday night last. It appeared that the ohild was deformed in consequence of a fall, and that its mother had recently died at Bristol. The father was also dead. Miss Millward went over to Bristol from Cardiff to fetch this and three other orphan ohildren. She found that a Mrs. Livings had been keeping the deoeaaed for 2s. 6d. per week. The ohild was, however, very thin, and Mrs. Livings said she had as much food as ahe required, but did not get enough nourishment. The witness took the child to Dr. Pratt's surgery on Sunday night. The doctor saw it was in a very critical condition, and asked the witness to atrip it. She did ao, and the poor little ohild died then. Dr. PTatt now said that he had never seen a child in suoh an emaciated condition before. It would have required very nourishing food to pro. long its life. It appeared to be rather a child of eix months than three years. The aooident to its spine would cause great emaciation, and he was surprised that it had lived so long. The jury then found, on the doctor's evidence, that the child died from natural causes, resulting from a cur- vature of the spine, caused by an aooident.
