CORRESPONDENCE.

ADMIRALTY (REGISTRY OF COURT OF).
Mr. Rothery to Civil Service Commissioners.

Admiralty Registry, Doctors' Commons, 6th February 1858.

GENTLEMEN,

THE Lords Commissioners of H.M. Treasury having determined that all persons nominated to any branch of this office should receive a certificate of qualification from the Civil Service Commissioners, I am directed by the Right Honourable Stephen Lushington, the Judge of the Court of Admiralty, to address you with a view to fix the age of admission and the nature of the examination to be required of any clerks who may be nominated to a situation in this office.

By their Lordships' Minute of the 24th of December 1855, copy of which is herewith sent, it was provided that the clerks in the office of the Registrar of the Court of Admiralty should be divided into two classes; the first class, or the permanent clerks, consisting of a chief clerk, a second clerk, and three third-class clerks, with salaries varying from 2001. to 500l. a year; the second class, or the supplementary clerks, being six in number, with salaries commencing at 80l. a year, and increasing by 51. a year to 1507.

As regards then the age of admission, it is proposed that no person shall be eligible for nomination,-1st, as a supplementary clerk, who is under 17 years of age or above 30; 2nd, as a permanent clerk, who is under 17 or above 35, unless, indeed, he shall at the time of his nomination be acting as a supplementary clerk on the establishment.

The proposed limits of age are, the judge is well aware, wider than for other public offices; but he is of opinion, looking to the exceptional character of this establishment, that they should be so. Circumstances may very possibly arise, as on the sudden breaking out of war, which would render it necessary very greatly to increase this establishment, and there might not be amongst the supplementary clerks persons capable of discharging the more important duties of the office. In that case it would be necessary to appoint persons who, from long experience in a proctor's office or elsewhere, may have acquired a thorough practical knowledge of the business of the court.

As regards the examinations, it is proposed that the standards of qualification for the two classes shall be as follows:— For supplementary clerks

(1). Good handwriting.

(2). Transcribing and writing correctly.

(3). Transcribing and writing from dictation.

(4). Grammatical structure of sentences of a simple character. (5). Arithmetic, the first four rules, practice, and the rule of three. For permanent clerks―

(1). Good handwriting.

(2). Transcribing and writing correctly.

(3). Transcribing and writing from dictation.

(4). English composition.

(5.) Making a précis or digest of letters or other papers. (6). Arithmetic, as far as vulgar and decimal fractions. (7). Some knowledge of one or other of the following subjects,

to be selected by the candidate himself:-Either Latin or a
