NAYAL AND MILITARY INTELLIGENCE. The Army tmd Xaiy GazHte says:—Lieutenant-General G. Hnyshe, C.B., Bengal Infantry, becomes a General; Major-General W. C. Macleod. Madras Infantry, a Lient.- Gcneral; and Colonel E. P. Lynch; Bombay Infantry, n Major General, consequent -upon the death of Lieutenant-Gencral C. R. W. Lane, C.B.. Indian Army. —An examination of candidates for entrance to%the medical service took place at the London University, Buf- Iington-strect, on the 12th ult. The number of gentlemen presenting themselves as competitors was eighty-four, viz., for the Army Medical Department, nineteen; for the Indian Medical Service, fifty-five; and for the Naval Medical Department, ten.—The' sum ef £1,200 only has been taken this yaar as A salary for a Chief Constructor of the Navy, who Is yet to be found. In the meantime, the office to which bit will be attached is stated- to be "under revision," which, in other words, means that the "Fools' Paradise" wBB be for the future not quite such an easy plaoe M it has been hitherto.—Some disappointment woeU seem to have been evefituated in consequeD08 of the non-appearance of a Bath Gautu to mark the occasion of the country's thub- giving for the recovery of the Prinee of Wales from his recent alarming illness. So few vacancies have occurred since the issue of the last Gazette that it wm thought scarcely expedient perhaps to effect any extension of the existing lists, seeing that a more unlimited bestowal would detract from the value of the reward; but still cannot suppress the notion that one or two creation* aD4 promotions might have been judiciously effected. The United Service Gazette says :—The appointment ef Military Secretary to Lord Northbrook. Vicerov of Inditt, which was offered to and declined bv Colonel Arthur ElliI, Equerry V" the Prince of Wales, will, it is stated, be filled by Lieutenant-Colonel N. Sturt. Grenadier Guards.—It la not the intention of the authorities that the one of the twin battalions associated with 11 special district on home service should of Mcossity be quartered in that district. Battalions will be moved from camp to station, and vice rersA ag at. present.—There have been symptoms that some of the npwiy linked battalions are not altogether pleased with their new yoke-tcllowa. H the grumblers will, however, give a careful perusal to the report of the reorganisation committer, they will see thmt it ha* been necessary to consult other principles than that of mere couxitv designation, and it is possible they may then copie to the conclusion that the coupling has been made with great judgment and conside- ration.—New regulations for the discipline and "pay- ment of the Army Reserve have been issued.—Captain his Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh, HS., K.G., will be entertained at dinner by íhe officers of the Royal Naval College at Portsmoutlf, on Thursday next. The Brrxid J rrmp, alluding to the behaviour of lite Marines an the Day of Thanksgiving, says:—A body of seamen, hy the way, from Chatham. Plymouth, and Ports- mouth. occupied Waterloo Place under the copimand fii Captain Boys, of the Excellent, who was mounted on hptwe- back fof the occasion, and thus realised, for once the existence -of such an arm as the Horse Marine." The same paper adds :—It has been at length decided to separate the mounted dismounted branches of the Army Service Oorpø ijfo distinct commands.—We understand that in consequent of a communication which has been received from tbf Lords Commissioners of her Majesty's Treasury, statttt duty will not be required on the commissions of lieutenants of those cornets andl ensigns who were |A- pointed to the armj» in October last, and who were eotr* verted into sub-lieutenants on the 1st November, 187L
