OF the late Major Darvall, the S. M. Herald of the 21st instant says :-" This venerable gentleman, whose remains were yesterday interred at Ryde, was bom in India in 1773. His grandfather, Joseph Darvall, was deputed by the East India Company, soon after their formation in 1725, to take charge of their affairs at their settlement of Bencoolen, in close connection with the Dutch, who were then in possession of the Spice Islands, and whose navy commanded the Indian Ocean. His father, Roger Darvall, succeeded to a high appointment in the company's service, where he remained for upwards of forty years ; and in 1794, Edward Darvall, then a lieutenant in the 19th Dragoons, went out to India, and was present at the storming of Seringapatam, with Sir Arthur Wellesley, then Lieutenant-Colonel of the 33rd Regiment. He was sent home on sick certificate in 1799, and in 1800 was promoted to a troop in the 9th Light Dragoons, and was brigaded under Lord Paget on the Sussex coast while Napoleon was collecting his army for the invasion of England in 1802. In 1803-4 he commanded a squadron on King's duty at Windsor Castle, and in 1806 retired from the service, married, and resided at Nunnington Hall, Yorkshire, for many years. In 1839 he emigrated, with his family, to New South Wales, where he has since resided, and where his memory will be cherished by all who know him."
