7 JULY 1855, Page 11

The death of two Admirals of the Red this week

will occasion a large amount of promotion. In anticipation of the Gazette announce- ment, we may state that those gallant and estimable officers, Vice-Admi- rals Sykes and Brown, Rear-Admirals Douglas and Reynolds, and Cap- tains, including Stephen Lushington, who has so nobly distinguished himself as Commander-in-chief of the Naval Brigade, will each gain a step in rank. This will place two good-service pensions and a Naval Hospital at the disposal of Sir Charles Wood, include Sir Baldwin Walker on the 14s. 6d. list, and Captain Richard Henry Stopford on the 12s. 6d. list; while the death of Rear-Admiral Harper will make a retired vacancy for a Captain.—Globe. .
