Lord Cardigan has been quarrelling with an officer of his

regiment, the Eleventh Hussars. A correspondent of the alforning Chroniete gives the following version of the affair- " An officer of the Eleventh [kissers, at the mess-table, had a block botth% containing either hock or champagne, before him. This bottle attracted Lord Cardigan's attention; and he, with 'the most perfect eiri/up, and in the most conciliating manner,' forwarded to the officer a message, through Captain intimating that he (Lord Cardigan) 'desired the 111,2S3 of the Eleventh Hussars might not he turned into a tap-roost.' Illte reply Captain .1— received, was such as the inessoge deserved, viz. 'that if he (Captain J—) brought any impertinent message frmn Lord Cardigan, he (Captain J--) would be held personally responsible.' The answer was communicated to Lord Cardigan, and the officer placed in arrest. On the affair coming to the knowlede of Lord Hill, he wrote an extremely kind letter, recommending that the wren- sive expression should: be withdrawn, and thus prevent the matter coming officially before him. His Excellency the Commaniter-in-Chiers recommen-

dation was instantly complied with. Lord Cardigan, however, refused to release the officer from confinement—•a confinement en esed alt by ids OM uncalled-1hr and inadmissible message—mdess certain stipulations of I is own were agreed to. These were very properly refused ; and the (acer w.:-; not released from confinement until the ;torsi! Guards interfered, the term of eight days haviug expired without his Lordship sending in charges."
