Last week, Captain MUDGE, of the Royal Navy, who has for five or six years conducted the nautical survey of Ireland, now in progress, with so much credit to himself and advantage to the public. He has, we believe, completed a most minute examination of the coast line, from Dublin, northward, to the southern point of the county of Donegal, besides making several surveys in other parts of Ireland with a view to particular objects. Captain MUDGE was an officer of the highest attainments and scientific skill, and commenced his career as a surveyor under Captain OWEN, in the arduous service of the survey of the eastern coast of Africa.—Literary Gazette.
