Google 



This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 
We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for in forming people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe.

autboTity of iofluence for that 
or commaiid — still that ftutfao- 
ritjr has been mssumed, mnd 
its operation extends through- 
out the vide limits nbore as- 
signed to it. They must be ill 
read in ludiah history who 
can dispute the necesMly of 
this extension of the British 
aiceiidancy.or questii'n its sa- 
■ lutary effects, upon those who 
are comprised within it^ 
■phere. 

The commaoding attitude in 
which the British power in 
Hindustan is finally plac«d, 
it the work of its present en- 
lightened ruler : it was reserv- 
ed for the Marqueu of Hatt- 
iti^t to g;ain a victory over 
enemies more difficult to be 
defeated than the armed hosts 
which be scattered in tb« field; 
to triumph over timid policy, 
and popular prejudice, and to 
establish beyond the riak of 
question the important truth 
that " Bcticmea of conquest, 
" and exteusion of dominion, 
" in India, may be measures 
" conformable to the wish, tbe 
" honour, and the policy of 
■' the British nation." We 
ahaH now, it is to be preeum- 
•d, bear no more of the affect- 
ad moderation, which aban- 
dnits humble allies in. the hour 
of peril ; which aubmits to in- 
ault and ptllaze with scarceLy 
a murmur, and which loses 
tiglit of national name and 
-prosperity, in the fear of i^. 
nbrant censure or interested 
nisrepreientation. Disregard- 
int; the tendency of past de- 
cisions — -founded on errone- 
«MU orpattUI Maaomag, tha 



present' Governor General hM 
not hesiUted on all occasions, 
to assert the dignity of the 
British Government, and to 
manifest its determination a^ 
■ s well as ability, to commenit 
resp'Ct. Occiirrences as oppor- 
tune as spontaneous, forced 
this spirit into action, combin- 
ed ivith the resolves of a souuil 
and manly judgement, to set 
open tlie flood gates hitherto 
self closed to British superior- 
ty, &nd let the torrent forth, 
to carry through the fields of 
Hindustan, ferlilitv— not ile- 
solation. The result has surpa.^- 
sed anticipation ; order has 
succeeded to anarchy : habita 
of social happiness to the fe- 
rocity of the robber and tha 
murderer: and plenty and 
peace to frequent famine and 
incessant war. Whatever ad- 
vantaf^ea tbe British power 
may derive from the late con- 
quests, the greatest, fall to tho 
portion of die vanquished, and 
the fine provinces of Central

observed, uf the directions in

Of the princea estahlitlied 
witliin the British bouiidacips, 
or at least within those limits, 
to which the British authority 
extended, some bad been ta- 
)ien within the pale of its pro- 
tpclion, to save them from the 
encroac-hiiieiiis ol ambitious 
ami tVirroidnble neif(hbours : 
the prot'Ction panted iit these 
cases, was of a feudal cha- 
racier, esacUus no return but 
occaaional militury service, in 
■easous of «meri;ency, and in 
ordinary au'l tranquil times, 
insisliiig oo no stipulations, 
but the quiet adrainistration 
of civil affairs, and the unre- 
served refereuce of all dts^ 
putes with their aeiichbours to 
the decision of the British Go- 
TernmenL The priucipal mem- 
bers of this class of princea, 
were the Rtgiuot Bhurtport, 
mA lUaekeri,iiii3iaidalacbiefs 
whose possrssious skirted the 
froatierfl of BumtUeeund, and 
the Sik'h chiefs on lh« left 
bank of tl)e Setl^. 

A more integral part of the 
Dritisfa empire was composed 
of those princes, who had re- 
Bif ned into its hands, the tnili- 
litary power of their states, 
and foregoing the pririlege of 
peace and war on their own 
behalf, tuppUsA from their 



tarrltorihl resoarcoi tha pa^ «t 
the forctta requisite for thmr 
defence;— the foreea thus 
maintaiaed being disposable by 
the British G avemm en t alone, 
were consequently anactiial 
part of its military lUength. Of 
these, the relations contract- 
«•! with the prinoeaofOtMfe and 
Sifderabad, were anost valua-' 
hle.aad most to be relied upon^ 
from the extant of their aub- 
aidiary arrangementa, and 
their long and cheerful ao- 
quiescenca in the systeai. 

A compact no leaa secnr* 
connected the Britiih Go- 
vernment, with ibe ruler of 
Gnxerat; it was indeed of k 
more iatimate nature, dian 
those described, and tha 
managemeni of the whole re- 
venues of tho country was 
delegated to the superior state, 
npon its liecoMing security for 
the payment of the burtheni 
aome load of debts, due by 
the Guickwar Government. 
This arrangement was in fuK 
operation at the time when- 
our surrey commences, and in 
1810, under the new manage- 
ment, the rerenaes of tlia 
4?ateihoar eaceeded his ex- 
pencea, by abotit IB lacs- of 
Rupees, which sum was ap. 
propriated to the diaehai^ of 
the paUic debts. We nay here 
obserre Anally of this amngo- 
nient, that its results have- 
answered the expectations for- 
med of it by the contracting 
parties ; and that the old debt 
was paid off in 1816, by 
funds, raited npoa a Inait,

The advantages thus attain-

a necessity to maintain an ex-

be fairly regarded as impreg- 
nable : the peace with Nepal, 
tiierefore, although its impor- 
tance has been eclipsed for n

It may be searcely be safe to

the late war is ihe last which 
the English may hare to waf;«

of aueh a nrcessity is reduced

who are net determined to ex-

disbelief, which are wholly 
inapplioable to its present con-

' From the view thus taken 
of the territorial and political 
relations of the British power 
in India, we are now to direct 
our attention to the proeret-

The official records ofonr

up by estimate only, the actn- 
a! accounts not having been 
received, it is not a matter of 
snrprise that they should have 
notbeenqwitecorrect. Accord- 
ing to the estimate, the Reve- 
nues for 1800-10 were reck' 
oned at £ 15,6S5,9SS, — th«

15,957,071, and a conseqnent

more favorable. The reve-

'I'he alterations theretiir* 
which this trade has ontjer- 
gone, appear to be the follow- 
ing, 'rhe Conipaity's exports 
and imports have both dirain- 
ished by 236.0021. Tiiose of 
the Private Trade have in> 
creased by 1 6'14.750l— i*nd 
thenett incre^tsc on the wh^la 
Trade is 1.448 0881. or above 
S5 per cent. 

This extension of the actu- 
al amount of the Iradf^, has 
been necessarily atteni'ed 
with a rednction of those 
profits, which the limited sop- 
ply of both narkets, tended 
naturally to enhance. Wiiat 
may havs been the degree of 
diminution oo the private' 
trade, it is not possible to 
ascertain, but it ^peari that 
the profiu of the Company's

Ittporttru)« hare been redn- 
e«<l from about 20 per cent, 
which they realisetl in tbe 
^vG yrars rrom IBIO-11 to 
ISM-Ij, to about 14^ per 
CAiit. hetwceit 1814-19 &»d 
1810-20. If this diminution 
of profits howevet may be 
taken as a criterion of the ^e- 
- neral reduction, it bears no 
propOTtion to the increase of 
trade, as vbllst the one is 
less (ban 5, the oth>r in 25 
per cent. ; and it need scnrce- 
\y be obsfTTcfT that both India 
and England mast benefit in- 
finitely more by an extensire 
commerce, which yiehls but 
a moderate advantatie, than 
by a more restricted traffic, 
which erouloys and enriches 
bnt a handful of indiriduals. 
Before dismissing the snb- 
ject of the trade between In- 
<Ka and Great Britain, we 
may notice one or two of

its tranamission to the PoKu-

the hostile relationa io which 
that country and British India

Of the disposition of these 
Tast n ambers towards their 
pres ntRuUrs, by which alone 
the power uf ttie latter is to 
be ealimsted, it is not now 
difficult to speak. The liTes

trembled for wealth and for

turnHy ei:-nd their iimbiiioD, 
and iday learn to coret, what 
thflir soTerei^na may not be

od, it is true, must elapae, as 
■bclety in India ia at Kresent 
sonstitutcd, before any class 
of individuals shall arise, able 
to wield, the mighty but cum. 
brouM engine of popular dis- 
aatisfaction, with energy and 
■uccesS ; but it is far from dif- 
. fi'cult, to excite suspicion, in- 
fiama discontent, and ^ive 
birth to convulsions which 
iflust impair, although they 
may not overturn the fabric. 
It behoves the government of 
bi'iia therefore cautiously to 
preserve the confidence of the 
people; to disregard the dis- 
tant clamours of European 
ignorance and prejudice; and 
to resist, with the wise infle\i. 
bility tbe;^ have hitherto dii- 
playad, tha ibort-aigbted im- 



portunity that would ur|tt 
them to tamper with the feA- 
ings of their subjects, with re- 
gard to interests, 'on whiok 
their jealousy is tremblinelf 
alive. The Indian Char«ct«r, 
amidst the varieties which 
may be rc^iinlud as national 
distinctions, has one featurs 
is common ; a spirit of pasairs 
resistance, which wilt enduj* 
much, and lon°;, but cannot b« 
overcome, by persMaaioR' or 
force, and which, wheq urged 
to extremities, breaks forth ia- 
to sanguinary ferocity, or des- 
perate daring. On what occa- 
sion such an explosion may be 
anticipated, as moat likely, is 
sufliciently obvious. Political 
Tights, and religious farth, have 
ever been the ul)jects,rnr wbicb 
men have been most forward 
to contend. Of the first, the 
Native of India has nerer 
formed u notion; his forefathers 
have beijticathed none, not 
even a name for them, to bis 
inheritance: not »o widi hia 
belief: that, descends to faim

antiquity ; is interwoven witfa

and moHt cherished hopes ; 
and in spite of its absurditiei. 
is no less dear to him than bis 
existence. To wean him from 
this attachment must be tha 
work of time alone; the at-

Madhajte Sindhia ado[>- 
ted as his heir, Dowlut Rao 
.findhiit the saa of his younger 
lie))liew, Anund Hoo: this 
Prince was but thirteen years

mily uf his predecessor, before

Sindhia. and through a variety 
«f conflicts, crimes, and in- 
trrgiies, arrived at an extent of 
dominion and poner, uupre- 
cedcnted in Mahratla history. 
At this stnf>;e of his ambition 
lie pruvoked the lioslility of 
tfie British Government, and 
^iR Edifice ho had toiled to 
laisc was overthroirn ; his dis- 
ciplined Battalions were des- 
troyed; his Artillery captured, 
and the sacrifice of someofhis 
finest pOBnessioDS in Guzeral, 
and Bundlecund, was the price 
of peace : be still however 
icmained a Prince of respect- 
able resources, and formid- 
able to his neij^hbours, to ex- 
tend and confirm his sscen- 
dancy over whom he continued 
thenceforward to be the chief 
sim of his ambition. 

The situation of the family 
ot Ilolkar, presented a pro- 
mising fiehl for the exer- 
«ise of hii inUrfercnce: this 
family dated its origin from 



the same period as that of 
Hiitdhia. Mulkar Rao Bolkhr, 
the son of a peasaiiti adopted 
the profession of arms, 
and entered, about 1720, 
into the service of tha 
new Peshwa Bajet Rao: be 
soon disUnguislieil himself, a< 
in a few years, besiiles the 
grant of lands in Malwa, h« 
was nominated to the manage- 
ment or the Mahratta interests 
in that Province : he continu- 
ed to take an active p&rt in all 
the turbulent scenes that agi- 
tatad Hindoostan in tbe mid- 
dle of the I8th century, and 
after the battle of Paniput, 
retreated into Alelwa, where 
he employed himself in set- 
tling bis possessions, even then 
nearly the same that bia suc- 
cessors continued to away : be- 
sides these, he left several 
districts, in the Dekhan, and 
Khandesh, and heavy claima 
of a pecuniary nature on the 
Princes of Rajputana. iVvJ- 
fior Rao died ai the advanced 
age of 76 ; he was succeeded 
by lUalUe Rao, his gran'ison, 
his only son Kandi Rao, hav- 
ing been killed shortly after 
tbe battle of Faniput, at th« 
siege of Kumhhir near Deeg^ 
Mallee Rao survived his ele- 
vation but nine months, and 
died insane. Reports, sine* 
proved to be void of any t'oua-

seats of residence, whencs 
they issued upon nccasions of

they returned to rest <'rom iheit

spoils. It was a consequence 
of tliis occupancy of territory,

after incredible exertion, ia

involved in heavy di-bta, that 
he prayed to be relieved of 
them at the price of his prin-

tliat the only power cai>able 
of d*- riving ail vantage from

Ute protection given to the

TiJnals resumed their domes- 
tic <)isputes, and were oo leas 
nortilied than disappoioled, 
vhen they found their disor- 
derly habits corrected by Bri- 
tiili interposition: being wilh- 
ontrem'^dv however they sub' 
■iitpd their disputes to the 
Supreme Government, and 
hiraised the British authori- 
tiei for many years with com- 
plaiats of mutual aggression, 
■Dd petitions for restitution or 
radre*>. Tlie^e disputes how- 
erer, although occasionally 
i«(|iiirin^ the presence of a 
■mil mditary furce, led to 
BO transactions of general im- 
poftance, and need not there* 
fore be h?re detailed: the most 
idportaat erent in this quarter 
was the superceasion of liie 
Bfg» of Patgala, in the admi- 
Diitnttion of his own affair*, in 
consequence of his violent and 
oppresfire conduct, which 
Wis considered to be little 
ibort of mental derangement : 
the esecutire suthorily was 
Ifaerafore Tested in die Aoxt, 
tidad by effieteot ministers, 
Ud flupporttd Bod couuouled 



by the British fanctionariM. 
Tlie arrangement encountered 
much opposition from the Ra- 
ja and his parti'ians, and an at- 
tempt was even made against 
the life of General Ochteriony 
the British Resident, which 
there was reason to snspect 
arose ontof tbeas trusiiCtiMs. 
A young Sikh, who iiowrvet 
disclaimed all primeditatloii 
or preconcert) attempted o^ 
the IftthofMay to shoot th* 
Resident in hu jnlankcen, 
and this purpose being frus- 
trated by Oentrat Ockterloiy'i 
promptitude in seizing tits 
barrel of the matchlock,' and 
leaping oot of the pal an p 
keen, .the assassin attacksd 
him with his sword, fend tn^ 
dieted sefarat wounds be> 
fore he was secured. The SM 
was sent prisoner to DdkU 
but haviDE made aa attempt 
to force bis )ruards, be wa< 
killed to die affray that ensu- 
ed, and no further light we* 
tbrowit upon tho occurrence. 
The General speedily recopor- 
ed of his wounds, and the af- 
fairs of the Patyala statacon* 
thtued to improve in the hand* 
of the RmU and her minister 
Mora Kowiker. In 1813 tfaa

Sink, died, and was succeed- 
ed by his son Kvrean JStnA^. 
who giving hi& confidence ta 
the Ran€t minister, no chango 
of system took place. 

The apprehension of tiio' 
Sikh chiefs was now ezeitedl 
by the appearance Of 'a new-

At their foot -. here however 
tbav encountered jRwtjeet Sink 
and the British feudatories, 
-and their advance therefore 
was not Buffered to proceed 
'iFitbout notice or opposition. 
The diacussioas that ensued 
it ta unnecessary here to de- 
tail, as the t^eneral encroach- 
ments of the Nepalete wilt 
be better cotmected with th^ 
war of which they were the 
proTocaUon. It is sufficient to 
observe, that these agi:res«ioiia 
fCominenced so far back as 
180C, and that in thfl years 
1810 and l8ll, they were ex- 
ercised on various points, 
through the -whole line of 
frontier, from the Seticj to 
vlfam. 

The iniall course of eastern 
boundary from the hills to 
Ckittagong, afforded no occa- 
sions for the conflict of 
national interests, and we 
nujt proceed therefore to the 
latter tor subjects of record. 
In this quai'ter, events took 
place, which were productive 
of protracted and vexatious 
negotiations with the Court of 
4oa,aBd which have no doubt 
-left in that quarter impressi. 
o/ts unpropitious to the es. 
tajjlisbment of a friendly con- 
nexion, although the grounds 
of that disposition were un- 
justly aud haatdy adopted. 

The oppicsBJve Govern- 
aieflt of the Biirmat had for 
Bonle years driven a nu^iber- 
o.f ills natives of Arai/mn, to 
abnodon their haaies, aud set- 
tle in tlie Company's territory. 
2f« eueptioD wu takta- to 



their, emigration, and coatt* 
quentty no diOiaulues weri 
thrown in the way of their 
change of resideiicp. The re. 
membrance of their nativ* 
country, and the resentmeui 
kept alive by tbe arrival of 
fresh fugitives, produced at 
last a determination amongst 
them, to attempt to revenf^e 
their wrongs, or redeem their 
rights. With these purposes 
tbey collected in great forc» 
under the cammanil of an emK 
grant of some consideration, 
named KMgbering, and inva- 
ded the Province of JriMuai 
io the beginning of 1811. 

The issue of an armed body 
of men from tbeCompany's ter- 
ritories, naturally appeared to . 
the£urjRa Government, an act 
in which ihe British a otb or itiea 
participated, or at which they 
connived. It was stated indeed 
that the force had been coU 
lect^d with the utmost secr«. 
cy, and had marched wilbont 
the knowledge of the iiritish 
functionaries; but liltle credit 
was attached to these asser- 
tions, and otiier causes of jea- 
lousy and doubt occurred.

the Naf, detached patties inta

very limited - number of

persuaded that the Britisn 
tiorerament waa implicated 
iathelate transactions. It was 
not however difficult to wea- 
ken this belief at Rangomt, 
and tlie same effect might have 
attended the envoy's repre- 
sentations at Amerapura, whi- 
ther he was iinmediataly in- 
vited, had not freati causes 
of suspicion arisen, and liia

the British authorities to insist

which they occupied, engaging 
at the same time to use every

to repeat tlie inva^on of^-

cure the persons of the insur- 
gent chiefs. The demand 
of the '^^i of Arakhim 
for the deuvery of thoaa 
chiefs was resisted, as the 
aajiguinary and vindictive 
temper of the government 
of Ass was too well known,, 
to render such a measure 
consistent with the claims of 
humanity- — In the early part

.CEirioiis. It was evident that 
tlie Government of Jm iroidd 
not be satisfied with less than 
the surrender of the insargent 
bhiefs, nnd it iras highly pro- 
bable that if they could gstn 
possession ofthe envoy's per- 
son, they would detain him and 
bis suite as hostsf^es for the 
Helirery of the rebels; it was 
therefore thonght expedient 
to order his retiirn, without ac- 
cepting the invitation to i4me- 
rapura. Thrse aiiprehensinns 
were not uitfoiintled : various 
. attemn'-i to *ci/c the envoy hart 
brill projrcted, but were not 
Pxcciited. appare::;!y throii; h 
the tiiuiditj- of the Viceroy, 
and the ptPCinitioTts taken 
agninsf their SHCfrPB by Vap- 
taiit Otmninrf. His safety was 
further ensured by the pre- 
icnce i>l' the few cruizers and 
Vessels thut conveyed succes- 
sive dispatches from Bengal, 
and whose arrival filled the 
fiincti' naries of Rangoon, with 
Violent alarms for the security 
of th(! City. Such was their a- 
gitalion that a public order 
M-as promulgfitsd, 'lor every 
house to prirvide a man, armed 
with a sword and lanco, ready 
to appear on three stmUes of 
a Ojng. Inconsequence of this 
state of things tlie Envoy nuit- 
ied the town, and resided on 
board the 3/.i&i&nrCruiser,&nd 
the British Residents also re> 
paired on board t'le Vesseli 
m the River. At last the «£!• 



tation baring tnbsided, tkvj 
ventured to return, and at the 
requestof the members of the 
Government.Capt Catikingn' 
sumed his habitation on shore. 
After a variety of nnplea. 
sant discuMions, and alternate 
exacerbations of distrust and 
confideoee, the return of Cap- 
tain Cannmg was finally de- 
termined. On theSlstCFt July 
two deputiesarrived at Ran' 
goon from Ameraphra, profes- 
sedly to ascertain the reason, 
why the Envoy's visit to 
the capital was so lon^ da- 
layed, but in fact, to compel 
bis journey thither, and to re- 
move the Viceroy, as the tiu. 
nishmeiit of his having failed 
to effect this object. The in- 
tentions of these officers were 
however frustrated, and the 
mission qaitted the BangoiM 
River on the 16th of August. 
There could be no question as 
to the wisdom of this deter- 
mination ; it was only to be re- 
gretted, that knowing the bar- 
barous characterof the Aaraa 
Government, and anticipating 
the probable consequences of 
the invasion of jlraUoK, such 
an embassy siioold have been 
sent. The baste to ori^nate the 
representation on the part of 
the British Government, could 
only appear to Burma judg< 
ment, as a suspicious promp- 
titude to excuse a fault, and • 
timid anxiety to escape reta- 
liation: the' necessity of doioff 
so proved uliimately imagina- 
ry, as the BurmoM shewed no 
reluctance to demand reparS' 
tion by their own agents, and

The cIo«e of the year 18(3 
waa attended by a change in 
the administiDtion of the af- 
birs ofBritiih India, and the 
Earl of Minto was aucceed- 
•d by tbe Earl of Moira in 
tbeimportant situation of Go- 
Teraor General. Lord Moi- 
ra, afler tonching at the Isle 
Af France and Madras, srri- 
▼ed off Saugor in tiie end of 
September, and landed at 
Calcutta on the 4th of Octo- 
ber: be was accompanied by 
the Countess of Lopidon and 
Hoira, and his family. Lard 
Minto received the public 
brcwell of the settlement on 
the third of November, and 
both in that, and in his reply, 
there breathed a spirit of mu- 
tual sincerity, which does not 
erbnps invariably charactei-

Civililies. Iij rruth, whatever

•f Lord Minto'a goraimnent, 
an estimate of which in tliis 
place would neither bedeco. 
fous nor impartial, thera 
prevailed no differeocp ia tb« 
appreciation of his personal 
qualities : of domestic habits, 
elegaut taste, and tmpretend< 
ing talent, deeply imbued wi& 
literary partialities, nourished 
by eaily association with tha 
poembers of a brilliant cohort", 
in which it was no meati ho- 
nor to have been enrolled, and 
strongly disposed by nature to 
•BterUia all the kindly affec. 
tions which patriotisB, friend. 
ship, and kindred engender. 
Lord Hinto poMsessed many 
claims, which were readily 
acknowledged, upon the es- 
teem and regard of the com- 
munity. Besides the address 
already noticed, a public <;n- 
(crUinment was held on tbe 
6th of December, in which tha 
seatiaeDtB of the Society wer« 
onc« more expressed, and a 
numerous assemblage evinced 
tbeir respeot by attending hia 
final departure on Saturday tha 
11th of Dec. His Lordship 
survived his return to England 
but a short period, having died 
of an Inflammatory complaint 
on the 21st of June, 1814.

Noira accompanied the an.

■ The opinipn of Colonel 
Munro, reffanting the imprac- 
ticability of colon iaatioD would 
no doubt be BB fully conlim- 
«d by evanta as tkat regarding 
the influx of Europaaos — a few 
individuals posHeasiog i;apital 
.might be scattered over the 
Indian Eminre, but they would 
be lost in the mighty maa« by 
which they were surrounded. 
India is m occupied conntry; 
> right in its soil can only bo 
gained by purchase, and that 
«»nDOt be always extensively 
«■ economically -.effected — 
none but capitalists therefore 
can pretend to settle, and it 
is not very likely that Europe- 
us poflsessiag the means of 
Mcuripg European enjoyment, 
will devote those ineaox to 
the formatioB of an indissoluble 
BDion witli India, a country ao 
physically and morally oppos- 
ed to their habile and tbeir leel- 
ings. Jt is time however to 
return to the progress of the

mouotiag to fourteen, were 
discussed at subsequent sit- 
tings, and ihey were sent to 
the Lords on the 16th Jitne. 
Except on its first introduc-. 
tion, the measure passed th* 
Lorda with little oppositioD^ 
and after several warm dis- 
cussions ill the Commons on 
the different clauses, the bill 
passed into a law just before-

" Tba prisoner at the bar 
^andi before you, to be tried for 
the erime of inootinK U a jounf 
wonao named Har; Anno 
lonet. The facta of the oase 
are extremely iimple, and of 
Ihem, after heaiiog tke eri- 
deace,it will be impoiailde for 
Job to entertain a dwibL The 
«nly point on which jon will 
kave to decide is, whether or 
not there was malice in tbe act, 
for that ii rendered neccMarj 
by the itatnte ; the words of the 
>tatute,nnUemen^Te (the laam- 
•d ganUenian here reed part 
af the aet of Pariiament render- 
tng pereoni liable to pvniah- 
ment a* Felon* for wilfully and 
natiolotttly ahootiog at others) 
and he ii therefore, for mob 
■_ wflM and maliciooa ihooting, 
oapitally liable. The f«ct« of 
the eue are tbc»e: William 
Gilleaoe, the priioner, is a pri- 
vate loldier in his M^esiy'i 
Sth Dragoons, the person whom 
he shot Is a young woman who 
appears to have been at the 
tune at Mcemt, where that He- 
gtment was quartered : between 
two and three o'cloi^k of the 
IJtIi of Au^uiit last the ooctir' 
tni'S happenttil. He had en- 
gn^fld to po out witli one of liis 
CMuradei, to shoot nt the bulU 



f)M-«wagef, akd'W 
that apparent parpoae, »Am 
fcarhg Idaded hie QaraUM. 
The young woman was afttia^ 
at the door of the barrMki 
with her BOolher and a uMM 
woman, at dfamer ; the prisoner, 
as soon as he eame up to tihem; 
lifted his Carabine and poinUag 
It at dw MrtlTe woman, aaid 
*' Htasee, lit riraot rott." Sh* 
made aome obsernttioB abont 
her ear being sore and, on her 
telKng him not to hurt h«, 
withdrew the piece and port- 
ing it at Harr Ann Jonas, told 
her he woald have a shot at heaj 
she being frightened got ap and 
attempted to ran awar, bttt 
stumbled at a short distance, 
when Qilleece fired and she Ml 
wounded. These are the plnlB 
bets of die case, and of thm 
evidence there can be no qnes- 
doa, as the yoong woman wh« 
tras shot will appear befbre y on ; 
die only onestloQ wlS be, wb»- 
flier he wilfully and malldouiljr 
shot her. The circumHtancea in 
hvonr of tbe prisoner, for I 
would wish to state all in his (h- 
vor, as well as what makes a- 
gainst him, that the trial ma^ ba 
conducted as fairiy as possible, 
are these. He was undonbted< 
ly engaged to go but on Ihs 
snooting party, and that ntay 
account for the loading oftha 
gun ; it will be for you to de- 
cide whether it was loaded with 
that inteatioB, or for the pur- 
pose U> which it was afterwards 
applied. Another circumstance 
seems ^so to weigh in soma 
degree in hit fhvonr. It is this 
^Wben he came np to the 
place whore the women were 
sitth^ he first pointed it at the 
nedve womao ; now one woaM 
' hardly suppose that, coming 
■ there widi the inteddoa of shoot-

He (prisoner) was always a

thote to you from Oodgur, that 
I intended it> march against 
Soiriyali on the morning of the

dctocbment and attempting with 
be other to draw the garrismi . 
iu« tbe plain, inwhidi, however 
ndid oot •nccecd, eacamped 



at a CO nsiderttble'di stance from 
tbe plain. The fellows were ex- 
cessively impudent, came out in- 
to the plain, and, 1 believe, had 
half come to the resolution of a^ 
tacking'us. In this lencoura 
ged them, and at fonr o'clock in 
the afternoon went with Hyaoo- 
ba Khan's atid Jowba Sney's 
parties, and got concealed in 
a deep ravine m a line with tho 
ghnrry. where we were unseen 
by the garrison. When a favot^ 
able opportunity offered, m 
charged down and ent off their 
advanced parties, all of whom 
were speared and sabred ; 
whilst we were doing this, a par* 
ty of matchlock men came oat 
and fired at u, wc ebaigMl back

wilt be reeolleoted by those who

that tins was the only event that 
was wanting to complete tin 
chain of Biblical eporatiani in

Madras alone remaiiied of all

tined, in all probability to per- 
form very essential service to 
the general cause in a quarter, 
where the local advantages for 
deliberation and action are so 
great, and where the field of la- 
£our is »o Taut. Some interest- 
ing particulars were given of 
the progress of the New Societf 
since its oonunencement. In 
tile absence of the more fu> in- 
iMniution which may be expects 
ed in tiie Madras Report, it wiH 
be satistkctory to the tHends of 
the Bible Society, to observo 
that all tiioie deparlinenU of h:- 
bour, which embrace the versi- 
ons reifuircd in the Peninsula, 
have been transferred to the So- 
ciety at Madras, and adoplcl 
there with increased vigour, and 
witli the best prospects. Indeed 
the names of the Gentiemen as- 
sociated in the Patronage and 
in the Management Of the So- 
ciety's concerns, sRord a sura 
4>lcdge that nothinf? can bo 
wanting, which zeal and talents 
■nited in the best of oanses can 
■apply. Thus the Calcutta Bi- 
ble Society, after ten years of 
bibonr, during which it has di- 
rected its attention with a pa- 
rental solicitude beyond the li- 
nits of this Presidency to every 
place in (he East where its ser-i 
vices were required, row sees

a peat degree defeat the very 

a sot of the Aet. The object 
bo Aoi was to enahlo the

were necessoi'y to have iufor-

The seventh and eighth on the 
list are Mr. Youi% and Mr. 
Cooke. They entered the Co!-' 
lege in September 1818, and. 
studied the Persian and Hln* 
dastaoi languages. A se-' 
vere iodbpontion which 
occasioned his absence from tha 
pieiidency, for a short time, 
necessarily interfered with fli8, 
regularity of Mr. Young's at- 
tendance on the public lectorei. 
Mr. Palmer was admitted hi 
November, I8I9, and was ia- 
dolged with a separate exami- 
nation in May last, at which he 
exhibited a knowledge of thpi 
Persian and Hindustani lan- 
guages competent to entitle 
bim to be reported qnaliged foc 
the public aenrice. 

liir. Udny who entered only the 
College in NoTembcr last, was 
foimd q^ualified in Hindustani, . 
at the examination which took 
place in the foUcwing Decem- 
ber, even before he had attend- 
ed the lectures of the profess- 
ors. An examination in the 
Persian language was allowed 
bim, in April lut, at which ha 
was so successful as to be re- 
ported qualified for the publio 
■errice in that lan^age also. 
To these proofs of his acqni^'e-' 
meats, has been added the a- 
wardofa Medal of Merit, for 
early and remarkable pro&cien* 
oy in Hindustani. This outlui9

■1 having taken place on Tuet- 
day niehtln the Bow Baaar. 

The owner of the hoau, 
which was made the acene of so 
dreadrnl a cataatroptie, was a 
widow, whose husband, a late 
iheriff'a offloer, died a few dayg 
«eo. She bad three chtldnn 
with her besides her mother, 
and, after ten o'clock on Tue»- 
day Dight, when they retired to 
rest, directioBS were given to 
two serTantt, who were imok- 
Iftf in the small compooDd at- 
tached to the house, to he par-' 
tlcular ia shutting the outer 
door before they went to sleep. 

After isidDight the moth^' 
was wakened by a noise at tbe 
house door, and recognized the 
Voice of a peon, who had been 
einphiyed some time back wit& 
her lon-in-law, accusing the 
nrranta as having' occasioned 
bis being dilcharged, and cat- 
ting them unmercifully with a 
Weapon which he had in bis 
band. Soon after he entered 
the honse, and approaching the 
idace where they all slept, bis 
blows were Erst directed to her 
and then to her daughter, who 
wa* roused from sleep by the 
noise of his enUance. The 
daagbtei took het ■jma%tM 



child ill her arms andbemj 
for mercy to the babe as well u 
herletf. A parley ensued, dur^ 
ing which they got oat of bed, 
and thfl niscreaot promised 
ti> spare the woman's life, pni- 
Tided she engaged solemnly not 
to make a noise or ioform a- 
|aiast him. 

On ber asiendng ta thess 
Candmoas, he permitted her t» 
leaTe the house, in order to 
carry the child to the bouse of 
her grandmother, which wna la 
Chnoam Onlly at do great dis^ 
tauce off. when iibe wni pro- 
ceeding along the street wiA 
Otis intent, he accompanied ber, 
and in the mean time her mo^ 
tber made shift to quit the hoas* 
also and to apply for the aasis* 
tance of the Cbokeydars attach- 
ed to the Tannah in the neigh> 
faonrhood. These persons, pro- 
ceeding with her in qucstof him^ 
found a man in tbe street wfacni 
■he recognised us the assassin ; 
Knd hCj Dnding that escape wet 
impossible, eiclaimed (hat, a( 
anatiTe of Hindoos tan, he could 
not submit to be taken and kiU 
fed by Christians, bat would 
sooner die by bis own hapdir.

tbe people of Bootan. 

In war, the Booteeaa havs 
natohlodii, but they sre- of 
Utile ua»,U they cannot hit a 
mark with ball. They are afriiid 
to Am one off with more than 
two injtera of powder, and wbon 
they load more heavily they tie 
Ike piece to a tree and disdiarge 
it from a distance. They ight 
well with aknife. Wben a man

' The Booteeai do not 6^ i«

ooBts of mail of iron, or qtulivd 
jackets : they, ere ormed wifll 
fonr or five knives in case of 'ao- 
oidenti, and diey carry bowl 
and arrows ;— before tngagiag 
they drink plentifully of fer- 
mented liquor. 

It is said that the Gylonp, Or

|i«i1 oftbe cues rj nnnecesaa- 
tj to be inentioiin] to jon, and 
M; make a few abort remariLH 
upon some of the pftttcipkl and 
ImdiBf eases which will be 
broasht before yon. 
' 1.— The first of tbeie Is the 
me of David Sown ant, a pri' 
tale of H. M. RojBl Scots, for 
ihemarderof Asslat, Surgeon 
Tbomas Bolton, a caie appti- 
MBtlyof annsDsl (ftrage Bttoci- 
ty, in shooting his officer. This 

Ktleman was walldDgfroiD bit 
se towards the hoipttal at 
lUchinopol; on themonringof 
iht atHb Harab, abont slxo'cloelc 
ud wu passing a bonse Died 
U ft Vaton't Irage, when th« 

Ciponnf who bad it appears bj 
s own oODrcBslon been waiting 
there lince 13 o'clock of tbepre- 
ceding night, eame ont from be- 
hind K pillaT of the hovM and 
present^g his ransket, shot As- 
sistant Surgeon Bolton, In the 
Wde, saying ait the saino time; 
" take that, I've done for jou 
it Uit" and then ran away. The 

Srisoner being seised, admitted 
lathe "had been on'the'lnok 
eat since 12 the preceding it>i;tTt 
fbr Dr. Bolton" and declared 
bis "antlpndi]' to him forkeep- 
)ng him on spoon meat." Now 
all homicide is presumed to be 
iialfcioas and of coarse amoun- 
ting to marder, tinlll the contra- 
ry appears, from cirenm stances 
if pravooatloit; and it is Incum- 
beatonaprltoner to make ont 
such el reams tan ces to the sa^ 
tisftiedon of tfaecoartandjnry, 
■bleaatfaey arise out of the evi- 



tte dtcpmsiapoc in this

declaring that he will baTe his 
blood or Ae like, althongb had 
the death happened recently af- 
ter the provoeatloa, the Inv 
might, apart from sncb evideno* 



passion. The motive here as« 
signed, rather savoors of amor- 
bid irritability and disorder of 
the mind ; but is not soffioient 
to exempt the party fVom pnO' 
i^unent. In Lord Onslow's 
case, Arnold wbo met his Lord- 
ship in R lane near hja honsv 
and shot hhn, appeared tola* 
boar OBder a derangomoBt to s 
oertahi extent njKm a miscon-

state Triah Vol. 1« p. 703, toM 
the jury that itis not every Und 
of idle and franlio hamoorof a

Urn tobe such antadman as fa 
to be exempted firon punish,

many elber oases of the a aitff 
sort, as Bellingbam's and others^

Jast last made may, lttcwise,b«'

son to think they will, to the next 
oase of Thomas Sweeny, also' 
of H.M. Royal Soots, for tho 
murder of 'Thomas Butwiael. 
He is charged widi shoott^ 
his mnsket into - a orowded

every one feels who is not a dis-

pial an order, ought not to be re- 
tarded an instant. Onr wishes 
liowever,salB ciently manifest an4
