WHIG TAtBONAGB IN THE STATE AND. NAVY. B^ckWopo's Edinbuhgh Magazine-We find among" the vptes: of the current year, charges which clearlv denote the creation: of a veiy large number of new. places throughout the' country. In Ireland^ there is a charge of i6Q,70w. for the expenses of (i^nminal prosecutions, the chief part of which goes iit the payment of salaries, and :aot A small number of those entireTy new ones. In Eng-� landi there is an item of 54,000/1 a^year for Poor Law commissioners^ all of which is spent in the payment of newly created officers. Further on we find 14,7002. a-year for. slave commissioners v who enjoy aliqost absolute cinecutes;, 9,053/. a-year for the new superintendents of lactones; 6,000/^. for new inspectors of prisons; 5,000/. �a-year for the steam navigation from Egypt to India; 5,i00/; for the criminal law commissioners; 4,213/. for th^ record commissioners; 4,000/. for the Scotch churcl^ commission';' 2,500/. for the ecclesiastical commission; .4,010/. for the hand loom weavers' commission;; 700/. for the Irish charity commission; 7fOOO/. 'for the Iiisb 'Ixiandary survey; and 12,700/. for the Irish railway commission. Allt^es? charges are entirely "new, and all, with ii^ msiny moir^;that idghtbe named, go to the payment ,of new putceiiai^n^ We find an annual grant in the es^ ftimates of thisyear of50,000/. for the purposes of an Ii^sb ho^rdot education; in 1836, the sum voted was .only -35^000/. Another charge of a peculiar nature is 13, of Lord I^into -Hon. D. Bouverie, brother! of the Earl 6i Radnor. Among the comn^nders of the ships in commission, are a few equally distinguished by Whig names^ and favoured by Whig coniieadons. We merely select a few of the most glaring specimens :-rBritanniat 120 gfins, Captain Dundj^ -^Britomart, 10 guns, Lieut. Owen Stanley-^Champion, 18 guns. Commander G. King--Charybdis, 3 guns, Hon.

Hbtward, The.promotion of most of these lortunate and Liberal gentlemen has been singularly rapid^ and their employment almost constant and unceasing; The vessels they Giommaiid form no iilconsiderable portion of the whole navaljloree in commission ;aiid if so, how few ships re-mam for the veterans who fought for i^eir aountry before many of these * honouraMes" were born! Truly, Lord Minto-Has ''reformed'' the naval service in a peculiar and effectual manner; he has introduced a dejgre of psltrOnst^e and favouritism never attempted befbre. a system which, if it had been acted on; during the war, would halve consignedthe bulwarks of the nation to inexperienced hancb, and probably have ruined not only the service, but, the cause it was required to defend.

An attack oin a Sardinian schponer, or a grand movement against a few Carlist guerillas, is all that is expected nowadays from our navy and onr legions; it is perfectly right, therefore, that mmisters should prove that they consider that any
