REMARKS BY HIS EXCELLENCY THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF.
The sentence of the court martial being, that the prisoner
Cornet Edmond Roche should be severely reprimanded, he is to
consider himself reprimanded by me accordingly.

At the same time however, that I issue this reprimand, I must remark, that the interference of Mr. Sawell, the 3d mate of the ship Thomas Grenville, with Cornet Roche, and the gross and vulgar language used by him, both with reference to the Irish ge nerally, and to the Cornet personally (which language formed the probable ground for the subsequent proceedings), go far in extenu ation of the Cornet's misconduct.

He is to be released from arrest, and return to his duty.

(CIRCULAR.) Horse Guards, 22d August, 1837. SIR,-It having appeared on the trial of Serjeant Hugh Brenan, of the 1st battalion of the Royals, before a garrison court martial at Limerick, in April last, that as hospital serjeant, he practised a course of systamatic fraud, and the facts elicited upon that and other occasions, having afforded the strongest ground for belief that the case of this culprit is not singular, but, on the contrary one of no unfrequent occurrence in the regimental hospitals, have Lord Hill's commands to direct your special attention to a subject, in which the character of the non commissioned officers of the army, and the interests of the public, are so deeply con cerned.

His Lordship desires that you consider it a most important part of your duty to examine, frequently and strictly, the Charges in the hospital accounts of the regiment (or depôt, as may be) under your command; - that you particularly lock, not only to the quantity of extra articles but to the prices charged for ordinary

"First. In baving, in cantonment near Belgaum, on or about the 27th June 1927, and on subsequent days, asserted to pay master J. S.

"Second. In having, at Belgaum, on the 28th June, 1837 dictated to private Thomas Sinnott, of the 2d, or Queen's roya regiment of foot, a paper containing false and scandalous asper sious against the character of Brevet Captain Keith,to the effect a set forth in the preceding instance, thereby infamously and falsely

traducing the character of Captain Keith to a private soldier of the same regiment, and tending to degrade Captain Keith's character in the estimation of the said soldier, and the other sol. diers of the corps.

2d Charge." For scandalous and disgraceful conduct, unbe. coming the character of an officer and a gentleman, in having, in cantonment near Belgaum, en or about the 10th June 1837, assert ed a wilful and deliberate falsehood to the aforesaid paymaster J.

Darby, by stating to him, that Brigadier General Salter. commanding the southern division of the army, bad, some time previously, gone into his (Lieutenant Cuyler's) tent, when he (Lieutenant Cuyler) was under arrest for all ged misconduct at the mess, and that he (the Brigadier General) had then and there listened to the reflections referred to, in the preceding charge, against the character of Captain Keith; such false statement the part of Lieutenant Cuyler, being derogatory to the profes sional character of Brigadier General Salter, his superior officer."
