Sin,-It having appeared on the trial of Serjeant Hugh Brenian, 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 sraud, 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, I 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 pnblic, 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 depot, as may be) under your command ; – that you particularly lock, not only to the quantity of cxtra articles but to the prices charged for ordinary

\nd extra articles purchased for the hospital;—that your corectly inform vourself as to the local prices of provisions of very iiscription, groceries, &c. which may be required from time to time, for the use of the sick ;—and, that, upon the appearance of excessive charge, you take prompt measures to arrive at the ruth, either by the preliminary investigation of a regimental board, consisting of three officers, where the case admits of doubt, or by bringing the accused to trial, when the facts present themselves to your mind in a conclusive shape.

Lord Hill assures himself, that no effort will be wanting on vour part, to give due effect to these instructions as well as that you will derive the most zealous support from the medical officers of the regiment committed to your charge. His Lordship strenuously recommends, that, in your ordinary visits to the hospital (as enjoined by tier Majesty's regulations) you invariably examine the various items of hospital expenditureI have the honor to be, Sik,

Your most obedient, humble Servant,
Adjutant General.
