annual report 1854 39 The Department of the Applied Sciences in point both of numbers and efficiency gives as usual most satisfactory proofs of the high estimation in which it is held as well as of the conduct and diligence of the Students during the past year Mr Edward Pardoc Cotton Hanson of this Depart- ment received honours in mathematics at the Matriculation examination of the University of London In the Military Department the general conduct and proficiency of the Students continue to do high credit to the exertions of Captain Griffiths Professor of Military Science and of the other Professors The zeal and ability evinced by the Prizemen at the last yearly examination as well as the course of militai'y instruction pursued at the College were brought by Captain Griffiths under the notice of the autho- rities at the Horse Guards and in the course of last term the Principal thought himself justified in recommending to the General Commanding in Chief Mr George Edward Lcggett and Mr Harry Savary with request that those Students might as mark of approbation be called upon to pass their examination for Commission-a request with which his lordship was pleased to comply and both those Students have passed highly creditable examination at the Royal Military College Sandhurst From the Medical Department the Report is on the whole satisfactory The number of new Matriculated Students for the current year is 56 against 55 for the year 1852-53 but there is slight decrease in the attendance of old Matriculated Students and slight falling off in the number of Occasional Students The total number of Students of all kinds in this Department since the date of last Report is 238 The number for 1852-53 was 253 The conduct of the majority of the Medical Students has been highly satisfactory but there have been during the session which has just come to close few exceptions to this rule The course adopted in these exceptional cases has served not only to vindicate the authority of the College but to warn others against any similar breach of its discipline
