the absence of a Lieutenant, and several of her best senmen, in a prize recently captured; the total number of her crew in this action may therefore be fairly stated as not exceeding 240, of whom not a man was hurt. Soon after his return to port, Captain Williams received the honour of Knighthood, as a reward for his gallant conduct. Sir Thomas was promoted to the rank of Rear-Admiral in October, 1809, and between that period and 1814, hoisted his flag successively in the North Sea, at Lisbon, in the Channel fleet, and as Commander-in-chief at the Nore. In Jan. vary 1815, he was made a Knight Commander of the Bath, and subsequently was nominated a Grand Cross of that Order. In January 1833, he was appointed Commander-in-Chief, at Portsmouth, where he continued during the customary period of three years. The deceased was the benevolent founder of the Royal Naval Female School, towards which object he munificently presented £1000.

VICB-ADMIRAL Sia Patrick CAMPBELL was fourth son of Mr. John Campbell, of Melfort, Argylesbire, was born in 1773, and was consequently in his 68th year. He entered the navy in 1788, since which time until after the peace, he was constantly engaged in the service. At the capture of the Cape of Good Hope in 1795, then a lieutenant, he commanded a light company of seamen, and in 1799 covered the landing of a division of the army in Holland. When in command of the advance of the British vessels in the Zuyder Sea, he gallantly cut out four of the enemy's gun-boats. In 1800, then in command of the Dart sloop, he carried by boarding, and brought out of the harbour of Dunkirk, the French frigate Desire of 40 guns, for which brave action he was posted, and received the order of the Bath, The late admiral was also actively employed in the command of the Unite and Leviathan in the Mediterranean, from 1807 to 1812. In 1825 Sir Patrick married Miss Wauchope, youngest daughter of Mr. Andrew Wauchope, of Niddrie, Marechall, N.B., by whom, we believe, he leaves a family. His commission bears date as follows,-Lieutenant, Sept. 25, 1794; Commander, Sept. 4, 1797 ; Captain, July 11, 1800; Rear-admiral, July 22, 1830; and Vice-admiral, June 28, 1838. He was nominated a Knight Commander of the Bath in April, 1836.

CAPTAIN SIR H. Le FleminG SENHOUSB, KCH., was third son of the late Mr. W. Senhouse, surveyor-general of Barbados, and married in 1810 to Miss Manley, daughter and co-heiress of Vice-Admiral Manley. He entered the navy at an early age, and when midshipman, was present at the capture of Suriuan, in 1799; and in 1809 assisted at the debarca tion of the army at Martinique. Throughout the last American war he was actively engaged, and in 1813 he gallantly defended his sloop, the Martin, when attacked by an American flotilla, when aground at the mouth of the Delaware. The deceased captain was appointed to the command of her Majesty's ship the Blenheim, 72, in 1839, since which he has been employed in the China seas. In consideration of his services he was nominated a Knight Commander of the Hanoverian Guelphic Order, April 13, 1832. His commissions bear date, Lieutenant, April 9, 1802; Commander, June 2, 1809; and Captain, Oct. 12, 1814.
