THE VOLUNTEER REVIEW. The Duke of Cambridge, in forwarding to the Minister of War the report of Major-General M'Cleverty of the volunteer review at Dover, says he is most happy to express his fullest concurrence in the favourable remarks which, that officer has made. "I was much struck," says his Royal Highness, by the great improvement which I observed during the marching past of the force, in many of the minor details of organisation, and the admirable regularity with which every corps passed the saluting point was worthy of the highest approbation. The regularity with which the different corps were brought down by the railroad companies reflects the greatest credit on the staff of those companies, and the general arrangements made by Colonel Erskine and his assistant inspectors for collecting so large a body of volunteers from such long distances, and insuring their arrival at the appointed time and place, deserve my warmest commendation. The co-operation of her Majesty's navy, under Captain Commerel, adde greatly to the effect of the day's proceedings, and I heartily join with the major-general in his request that, the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty may be informed of the gratification experienced, both by the army and by the body of volunteers on the ground, at the pre- sence of a portion of the fleet."
