MILITARY INSPECTION AT PEMBROKE DocK-On Tues- day afternoon week the 62nd Regiment was ins pee ed at the hut encampment drill-ground, by Lieut.-General Viscount Templetown, C.B. His lordship, accompanied by his aidecamp, arrived on the ground ab,ut 3 o'clock, and was received with a general salute by the regiment drawn up in line. The regiment marched past in slow and quick time, the wheeling being especially good. They were then put through the manual and platoon exercises, and by the request of his lordship, also through the bayonet drill, which was done exceedingly well. Some company and battaliun evolutions were then gone through, all of which were executed with the greatest precision, and to the satisfaction of the inspector, who expressed himself in the most fluttering terms as to the regiment's general state of efficiency. The corps was under the able command of Col. lngall, C.B. On Wed- nesday aftetnoon the General inspected the Eiyal Artillery at their drill ground, Fort Barracks, the result being satisfactory. PEMBROKE DOCK AKTILLERY VOLUNTEERS.—This corps met at their range, Llanrenth Buach, on Thursday, the 2nd instant, to compete for the remaining prizAs, but the day was so exceedingly wet th it only Mr Meyrick's prize of £15 was shot tor, the result being as follows;- The weapons used were carbines.

MILFORD. THE LATE MR W. G. STARBUCK. On Wednesday the 1st inst., the mortal remains of the late 4 William Gayer Starbuck,' were consigned to the tofnb in the buriti ground attached to the denomina- tion of Friends' situate in this town. That one who scarcely a fortnight sinee was apparently in as sound health ae the strongest of us, and moreover in the very prime of life, not having completed bis 35-th year, should ht" been so suddenly removed from our midst, is an event, although not without frequent precedents, happily not of very oomcon occurrence. In reference to his private life, most truly can it be said, the affectionate son, the kindest of brothers, and the be-it of neighbours, has indeed breathed his last, and he of whom bis native town might excusably have felt proud M being perhaps, the brightest ornament it con- tained,—ever rwady to assist and promote every laudable object connected iwth it, and in which his high talents and great abilities were wont to occupy a conspicuous part-evea he it is, who- sudden removal it nJW 80 deeply mourns. Too disease of which be died was typhoid, brought on through over exposure, and although he received from the commencement the best of medical treatment, his brother-in-law Dr. McKay, R.N., being on a visit to him at the time, on unexpected and as it proved the fatal change took plaee about 6 p.m., on Saturday, resulting in his death within two hours after. Seldom him any wimilar event happened causing so much #l.K>Bt in the neighbourhood. The respect evinced towards the deeewfed's memory, as well es the sincere eyotptthy f It for the bereaved relatives, have been most marked. The funeral was a'tended by many from far and near, and while the solemn burial service in accord- ance with the sect of Friends' was being conducted by Mr Ball, of Windermere, not a few were the tears wfeiub were shed by the large assembly. Although there wsat scarcely any public movetmcnt connected with the Iowa in which the departed did not take a leading part, hi was more particularly identified with the I Mechanius' Institute* of which he was for many years the vice President, and towards the support of whici be delivered many interesting and instructive lectures. H»«u al»o chiefly instrumental in success- fully establishing The Proprietary College,' and to his I' indefatigable exertion* iu connection with his friend Mr Carrow, of Johnston Ball^ we are mainly, indebted for the establishing of The Pembrokeshire Farmer's Club.' He waa also known a# an author of some repute. While ve cannot bat deeply regret ttiat < life of such promise and uaefulnea, hai bean unexpectedly nipped in tbe bud, may we be led to feel that it is only another of the inscrutable dispenaationa of an all wise Providence, and to express the hope, that, though his hOOy has been committed to the dust from whence it came, his spirit has departed to God who gave it.' j
