A CASH FOR INQ UIRY. We (Army and Navy Gazette) have heard of a ship which was only commissioned a few months since as a training vessel for boys in the far West." Well, this ship so far has proved a disappointment, Up,tat this time only 30 boys have been entered. Not long- since a batch of 12 arrived in the vicinity of her port, with a-view of entering, They heard such sad ae. couate of thi3 treatment on board that one an$all turned their backs on the sea and returned to their homes. The commander ig..unpopular, both on shore and afloat, and from all that has reached us it would appear deservedly so. An order was lately issued by the Admiralty, and duly recorded by ua at tie, time, that in. future boys should not be flagged with,, thi; "oat," but that instead they should be birched; The instruments for the new kind of punishment weta drawn, from store at Davenport, but on examination, the commander arrived at, tbe conclusion that tha twigs were net suflicimtly hard 1Ul tough; and, to render the strokes inflicted by their means a lifcfeie more piquant, he gave orders that, they; should be steeped in salt water-and boiled in the ship's coppers. This little act of refiDement, on his part has bt-tm thoroughly appreciated, and the boys:will not enter. The townspeople are irrigated, and a general state of discomfort reigns in the neighbourhood. Their lor4. ships will no doubt know how to deal with lion oflioer who presumes to trifle with their orders. It was in- tended that a wholesome punishment should be ad" ministered to miadoers,, but nothing, wail ever sakt about torturing them. Captain Tremlett may possibly it worth his while to take an early, opportunity 4 inspecting the ship in question, the whereabouts of which canuol: sq uQknpwp hk%.
