The Late Mr. William Ainslie.—The de­ceased gentleman, late a judge of the High Court, Calcutta, who has died at Newbury at the age of 80, was appointed to the Bengal Civil Service from Haileybury College in 1845. He was specially employed in 1850-1 and 1851-2 in the suppression of the Meriah sacrifices in the Khond districts. He was afterwards magistrate of Rungpore, railway commissioner for the East Indian Railway, magistrate and collector at Bhagulpore, and railway commissioner of the Eastern Bengal Railway, and subsequently of the South Eastern Railway also.

After serving in the judicial department he was appointed Civil and Sessions Judge in Patna, and was in 1867-8 President of the Commission. He officiated as Judge of the High Court at Calcutta from November, 1870, till May 1873, when he was confirmed in the appointment, and was from then till April, 1880 when he retired a judge of the High Court.

For many years after his retirement Mr. Ainslie lived at Torquay, where his name will always be remembered in connection with the management and restora­tion of the Torbay Hospital. In 1901 he re­moved to Newbury, where he died on Tuesday, Feb. 13th.

The funeral took place last Friday, and was conducted by the Rev. R. Wickham Legg, Vicar of St. John's Church, where the first part of the service was held.
