Since commencing these few hints, the Examination of Gentlemen-Cadets has taken place at Addiscombe, where several of the Cadets have so distinguished themselves as to draw forth the encomiums of every person present,—amongst whom were several officers of distinguished rank, belonging to both her Majesty's and the Hon. Company's Service. A few extracts of Sir Richard Jenkins' address may not be out of place in this little work :—

"Those of you who have been posted to the Artillery and Infantry, will proceed, after the usual period of leave, to enter upon that career of service in India which, I trust, may be as distinguished as your warmest friends can desire—distinguished by strict subordination to superiors—the first duty of a soldier; by a sedulous attention to cultivate the affections of the native soldiery; by a determination to acquire proficiency in the native languages; by habits of strict temperance and judicious economy; by the cultivation of every honourable and soldier-like feeling; and by a constant adherence to those Christian principles in which you have been brought up, and which afford the best security for the conscientious discharge of duty in every station of life.

"Should the course of service bring you into contact with the enemies of your country, I need not express my hope that you will be as distinguished in the fiela as in the garrison. I am addressing British youths; and I am persuaded that the hearts which beat within your breasts will prove as brave and as devoted to the cause of our country as those which have ever rendered the character of the British officer and soldier conspicuous amongst the nations of the world.

"I have referred to the duty of cultivating the affections of the native soldiery. I speak confidently, and there are several distinguished officers near me who can confirm my assurance, when I say that there is no extent of devotion to you personally, and to the service at large, which may not be expected from the grateful feelings of the native soldiery, if you treat them with considerate kindness; if you pay attention to their habits and prejudices; if you treat their religious observances with due respect; if you cherish their confidence and attachment. I speak also with confidence when I say that the native soldiery will prove to you on the field of battle, should you be called into active service, that your attentions have been bestowed on those who will enable you to win honorary distinctions from your Sovereign, and who will prove themselves as efficient in war as in peace."
