THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF'S REPORT ON THE WIMBLEDON REVIEW. The Duke of Cambridge, Commander-in-Chief, has addressed the following letter to the Secretary of War concerning the anuual Volunteer Review which closed the meeting this year of the National Rifle Associa- tion, on the 22nd ult., at Wimbledon. Subjoined is Lord de Grey and Ripon's reply. Horse Guards, July 25, 1865. My Lord,—I have to inform your lordship that the Annual Volunteer Review took place under my immediate direction on Saturday last, the 22nd inst., at Wimbledon. The muster was considerable—9,143 of all ranks, with 24 guns, These numbers are much less, however, than what had been announced as the probable force on the ground, and I cannot help regretting that corps do not turn out somewhat stronger on parade on such occasions. "Everything passed off most satisfactorily. The drill of the battalions has, I think, improved since last year, though I am of opinion that even yet more battalion drill is needed in many instances. The marching past was creditable, and the movements, though few in number, were performed in a manner evincing intelligence and an aptitude for military evolutions. There is only one subjeot which I must notice with regret, and which is the late arrival of the corps. These were ordered to be on the ground at 4.30, so as to be prepared for commencing to manoeuvre at five o'clock. At that hour, however, hardly a corps had arrived at all events none had got into position, and it was 6.30 before the movements could commence. The result was, that every evolution had to be per- formed in a hurried manner, as darkness was fast ap- proaching; and, indeed, it was beginning to be dark before the marching past could be concluded Whoever is to blame in the matter, I do hope that steps may for the future be taken to allow these gatherings to take place at such an hour as to enable a certain number of evolutions to be performed with steadiness, and without undue hurry "It would be far better for the object in view, as regards gaining military knowledge, and far more ac- cel, I f e]f nIrMn1! volunteers themselves, to take Part in a field day which need not be curtailed for want of time to carry out the intended movements. -1 remain, &c., tv i TiSi^ned) "GEORGE- Jul0 R^ht Hon. Earl de Grey and Ripon. War-office, Aug. 3,1865."
