This work has been compiled with the view of providing the necessary information for persons desirous of obtaining appointments in the various departments of Her Majesty's Service.
CIVIL SERVICE.-The information in this branch comprises :—first, what relates to Patronage, Qualifications, Age and Salaries; secondly, what relates to Examinations. With regard to the Examinations, the latest papers have been given : not only one paper in each subject, but also additional papers where the Examination in the same subject differs for various offices. The Examinee has likewise been furnished with certain Statistical Tables and other collateral information tending to assist him in his preparation. Further, for this purpose, the Compiler has endeavoured, in the “General Remarks,” to give some idea of the real nature of these Examinations, and the best mode of preparing for them.
INDIAN SERVICE.-The regulations for the Civil Service, the Engineer Establishment, and Addiscombe have been given.
MILITARY SERVICE.-This branch contains the regulations for the Army, Woolwich, and Sandhurst. Those issued very recently for the Army and Woolwich embody the latest alterations.
NAVAL SERVICE.—This division contains the regulations for the Royal Navy, and for Marine Cadets.
For the information contained in this work, the latest Parliamentary Returns have been carefully consulted, together with the four Reports which have been issued by Her Majesty's Civil Service Commission.
The Compiler is happy to acknowledge the ready and polite attention he has received when communicating with the different Departments of Government. He has also to acknowledge the valuable assistance he has received from Mr. Lake, M.C.P., while preparing the present work. OXFORD House, Chelsea,
