      THE ARMY
      (From the Limerick Chronicle of Saturday)

      The 3d Buffs and 74th Highlanders move from this garrison next month.
      Color Sergeant Pilbin is promoted to be Sergeant Major of the Buffs, in
      this garrison, vice Power, reduced to the ranks.
      The service companion of the 26th, or Cameronians, under command of Lt.
      Col. Hemphill, embarked yesterday at Cork, on board the Bombay transport, for
      Gibraltar, to replace the 34th on that station, which embark for the West
      Indies, to relieve the 88th.
      The 7th Depot arrived in Cork from Youghal, to embark for Winchester.
      The 41st take up the detachment of the 7th Fusiliers at Youghal and
      Charlesfort.
      The 23rd and 41st Welsh regiments, yesterday wore the national leek on the
      festival of St. David, the patron of Principality, a day dear to all Britons.
      Sergeant Michael Connell, 55th, shot himself on Thursday at the Linen-hall
      barracks, Dublin, in a state of mental disturbance. His wife had been jealous of
      his attention to another woman.
      Capt. Knox, 85th, has joined at Waterford, and Lieut. Maunsell at Pilltown.
      The 85th Light Infantry move from Waterford in April.
      10,000 men are to be located within the Meernt division, under the command
      of Major-General Sir Joseph Thackwell, G.C.B. to check the Mepauleese.
      The 75th regiment were splendidly entertained on their arrival at Umballa
      by the 18th Royal Irish.
