■ INT.

For the better accommodation cf the troops stationed in Canterbury, an hospital is about to be erected, in a healthy situation at the back of the range of barracks, in the northern quarter of the city. Its size is estimatf d to accommodate about five in every hundred of the troops usually stationed there, and every attention is to be paid in its construction, to render it conducive to health and comfort. Comprehended in its scitc, will be an area of several acres of land, which is to be tssed in future as an exercise ground for the cavalry regiments, that may be stationed in the barracks. The ground has also been chosen near Fort Pitt, at Chatham, for a similar hospital, for the use of the troops at that place. These buildings will supersede the necessity of regimental hospitals at the above places, which are too often, from their nature and construction, rather the promoters than the preventives of disease.

At a respectable meeting of the inhabitants of the town and neighbourhood of Reading, lately held at that place, it »at resolved to estah!h>h a society there, in aid of the British and Foreign Bible Society in London, and to adopt, as far as possible, the rules and regulations of the parent Society. Donation! and subscriptions to forward this plan, have accordingly been received to a considerable amount.;

The Commissioners appointed to inquire into the state of Windsor Forest, have nude three reports upon the subject, which have been laid before the House of Commons and printed. The following extracts from thesi shew its present state:

"This forest was formerly of much greater extent than at The present time. According to an inquisition in the time of {Charles trie first, and the perambulation made under the authority of Che 46th of the ^tng, it extends into the five hundreds of JUl' Cookham, Charlton, Warpve, and comprehends the whole of and part only of others. Thk e within the forest are twelve fo"tjj_ it extends into parts of five c«n»jfr It contains fifteen principal or' having within them several mesne manors.

*'The number of deer have of late yean been much diminished. And it appears by the return! made in November, 1731, that thrie were ac that tlrre more than 1,300 deer in the forest; and by a return in November, lf.OC, that there were then only 318 deer in the whole fo e*t> It would be suppj?c\ that -liese having a range over V4,600 acres or land, would find sufficient food, with proper assistance, in winter; the conrrary, however, is the capes and the deer in almost every Wjiic of the forest, except one, are all neu.y sarved; many actually die of hunger, and the surviving does, have not strength to rear their fawns. This principally arises from the unlimited manner in which animals of all descriptions are turned out in the forest, by persons who have no right or pretence whatever to do so, and by the surcharge of the common by those who have a right to a certain extent. The assistance that ought to be given to the deer in severe weather, is not attended to. The provision made for that purpose is, in every wall in the forest, inadequate ; and in one instance, that 'came accidentally to the knowledge of the commissioners, perverted to private advantage.

The ruinous effects of the system which has hitherto prevailed in Windsor Forest, cannot be better illustrated thusi by stating, thut the timber aow growing in Che forest is valued, upon a loose estimate, to be worth nearly 200,0001. of which (from the want •f care) only a small portion will be applicable to naval purposes. The greater proportion of the timber is now going rapidly to decay! and ought to be cut as soon as possible. There are now in the fotest of Windsor about 2,240 acres of land, on which trees are standing ; but throughout the whole of that district there is not a single sapling, or growing young tree, to succeed loose which decay, Ot atr cut down. There are also in the forest

Mj.n ritit Maw No. IBi.

about 22,233 acres of heath and open land, on which there arc no trees of any age or kind, excepting a few oak and beech pollards of inconsiderable value.

The lodges in the forest (except those occupied by the under keepers, which are mere cottages) are Cranbourn Lodge, New Lodge, Swinley Lodge, and Bigshot Lodge; and it appeals, by the return of Lord Cranlcy, in the explanation of his office of Out Ranger( that there is a lodge annexed to his office, called Tryt Lodge, near Chertsey (which is out of the forest), now in the occupation of Admiral Sir Richard Onslow, Baronet.

Cranbourn Lodge was occupied by his late Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester, when Lord Warden of the forest} it lias, since his death, been completely repaired and fitted up, and is now in the occupation of the Honourable George Villiers, by permission of his Majesty, but who does not hold any office within the forest.

New Lodge was granted by his Majesty, with the office of Ranger of New Lodge Walk, for life, to her Highness Princess Sophia of Gloucester, by letters patent, in the year )7.'». This Lodge, as her Highness states, in her explanation of her office, is in such a dilapidated state, that it is scarce habitable by the servants who are put into it to take care of it. There are about twenty acres of grass land attached to this lodge.

Swinley I-oHye, with its inclosures, containing about one hundred and ninety acres, is always occupied by the master or keeper of hit Majesty's stag bounds, who is at the same time ranger and keeper of Swinley Walk, and circuitor bailiff and chief forester of Battel Bailiwick.

The state of Bigshot Lodge is much more ruinous than that of New Lodge, and is in no degTee whatever habitable; there is a large quantity of building belonging to it, and was for many years inhabited by the late MajorGeneral Cox and his family, but has been long deserted.

Married.] At Hoe Benham, Mr. Joseph ShufT.aged 85, to Sarah Marshall, his servant maid, aged 25.

Dud. ] At Newbury, to which place he came for the benefit of his health, the Rev. William Vipond, aged S3. The last 11 years of the lire of this valuable man, were devoted to the ministry among the Wesleyan Methodists, and not only in the pulpit, but bv the influence of example, it may be truly said, that he was an eloquent preacher of righteousness. In he-.iltn, every Christian grace shone forth with engag'u.g lustre; but in sickness their brightness was doubly encreased, by that holy submission, and heavenly composure, which true religion alone can inspire. And as long as arjectionand gratitude retain their influence, will his virtues be iccorded on the hearts of all who knew him ; and knowing, could not l-il to respect, esteem, and admire him.

At Warfield, Mr. Thomas White.
