GREASED CARTRIDGES. Singular Origin ef the Rrrolt in fndla. The grave importance which the revolt in In dia had assumed, will, we imagine, render rentable the following narrative of ft* origin and progress: The first symptoms of dissatisfaotion in the' Bengal army appears to have displayed them selves In the month of January. TTiey appeared at first in the nineteenth native regiment at the military station of Berharabore, a hundred miles or more north of Calcutta, and close to 3Iooraht>dab?td, the former capital of Bengal The men of the regimen: oom plained that the greese supplied for greasing the cartridges for a new rifle, with which the regiment had been lately armed, wa* animal fat, which they could not touch without danger to their caste. As aoon as this dissatisfaction was brought to the notice of the Governor-General, orders were is sued and telegraphed to all the stations in Up Kr India, in which a like uneasiness had shown ielf, that no more greased cartridges should be issued, but that the men should be allowed to purchase their own grease in the Bazars. An idea, however, appears to have spread that the Government had some covert intentions in the matter, and the men continued so unruly that Col. Mitchel, the commander of the station, resolved to disarm tbem. To his order to lay down their arms, backed, as it was, by the Eu ropean troops at the station they finally yielded, hut only on condition that tho artillery whi<jh had been pointed at them should first be with drawn. Colonel Mitchel was thought to have been too moderate. It was said, that rather than con cede a hair, he should have blown the regiment to pieces, and it was resolved to make an exam pie of this regimont by disbanding it. The pay of the sepoys is. it seems, seven rapes (about three dollars and a half) a month, very high pay compared with the current rate of "wages. Nor is it exactly true, as commonly stated, that the sepoy cannot hope to rise above the ranks, iaere are, in tact, in the native armies, two grades of commissioned officors filled by natives the Jemadah and tho Soobadab, ono of oach grade to every company, and as oach regiment nan a >oobadah major, there are in each regi ment twenty-one commissioned native officers. I he pay of the Soobadahis 150 rapes (about $75) a month. equal in amount to an ensign, and, taking relative expense into account, equiva lent, for all purposes of laying up money, to the ray of a major or lieutenant-colonel. There is besides, the chance which the native offi.-ers have of obtaining the title of Bahadoor, ?? The or ?? The Noble," and being admitted to the - Order of Merit of British India/' not a mere empty honor, but carrying a pension ong with it. As in the Bengal army, promo tion, so far as the natives are concerned, eoes by seniority, each sepoy may expect to attain to the honors and emolument* of Bahedoor. 1 he ranks are not filled by levy or impressment r & voluntary onlistment, and as r.o recruits, of which there have always been plenty offering are received bevond a certain age. the disband ment not only deprived all the native officers, and older aoldiers of their prosent position, but Would cut off all chance of ever regaining it. j ?,Ini "thera.ncc disbanament, the lyth regiment was marched to Barru-k pore, near Calcutta Since tho removal of the in^i?y,we*;1,(luarter to Mecrut in UPPer India ? i kiT I ? lrooP? in Calcutta and tho neighborhood had been reduced to a regiment whiH* . *** l^e at this momeut, while at Barraekpore there were some ."MM*) na tive troops. Of these, two or three regiments it was thought could be depended on.Hbut as ? hTL'tl. ^arrackp >re troops, particularly the 34, h regiment, were,understood to sympa thise with tne l'ith, in order to make all sure the disban jment was delayed till the Queen's regiment #as brought from Burmah and parts of other regiments called in. On the 30th of JMareh, the troop* were drawn np ou parade, the Queen s regimenu with the cavalry and ar tillery on one sido. and the native troops the other. The lt?th which had been halted out side. was then marched in between them and disbanded. But this example did not produce the effect expected, and it became necessary ?oon after to disband the 34th regiment also I rC,tTKr d th'8 ?xamP,c have the expected V,T"e dissatisfaction with the greased cartridges began to show itself at other stations, and particularly at the distant station ?I V*r.Ut' ut fort* miIes frum UeH?\ and the headquarters of the artillery. The lines at Meerut cover a large space of ground divided into two part*. one tor tho native, the other for at" troope. At the commencement of 'J JJ, *hcre In the European lines about ?tfi !** Da,lve forc? consisted of the Light Cavalry, and the 11th and 2oth reei menu of Native Infantry. Among the men of the cavalry corps, the question of the greased cartridges was freely agitated, of which the result was that eighty five rnon of the corps, refused to handle tho artridges, were tried by court-martial and Sh0UhCr?. V'iVanT U}rras uf i?PH?>nnienl with hard labor. On the nineteenth of May irr?K?UtCaCeJf W"C read uut on tho parade and the offenders marched off to jail. Up to this time, the dissatisfaction had chiefly shUn Itself by incendiary fires, of which thire h id been one or more within the lines every night. On the afternoon of tho 10th. while many of the at Church-for it wasounday andTifr^ natlVe regiments, the 11th M Previ,JU* concert, aa-ern bled in tumultuous bxlies on the parade-ground ' ^officers hurried from their quar r7 n^i ?ndeavoV0uPaC,fy thetn' wnon? others ?f lhe 1 Uh- who ^ down while addressing a party ot the 20th.

C&lcatta itself wm thrown into the greatest alarm, and on the l$th a native regiment was disarmed, accused of conspiring to seize Fort William. Most of the Europeau inhabitant* provided themselves with arms, to be prepared against any rising of the natives. General Anson, the Commander-in-Chief, who at the time of the revolt was at a hill station north of Delhi, recruiting his health, hastened to Umballah, a station on the road from Lahore to Delhi, and distant from tho latter a hundred miles or more. Here were some European troops, but. before they could advance on Dolhi, it became necessary to disarm two native regi ments which had shown signs of dissatisfaction, and to wait also for a siege train. The first English troops to appear before Delhi were those from Mei-rut. On the 30th of May, at a village fifteen miles from that city, they encountered a body of rebels, from whom they took five guns. Home days after, the forces from Umballah ar rived, now under the command of General Ber | uard, Geirornl Anson having died of cholera, ? and, on the tfth of June, they drove the rebels 1 from a position they had assumed outside the walls, and captured twenty-six guns. On the 14th or 15th ot Juno, a second sortie made from the oity was repulsed with heavy loss; but on the 16th of June, which is the latest date from the camp before Delhi, the rebels still main tained possession. The English troops, even with the reinforcements on tho way, would \ hardly amount to six thousand. Moanwbile, Sir John Lawrcnce. oommrrrvling in the Punjaub, receiving news of the revolt by electric telegraph, disarmed seven native regi ments. and so maintainsd English authority in that quarter. Sir Henry Lawrence, who had commenced disarming some disaffected regi ments before tho Meernt revolt, succeeded in doing the same thing in Oude; but, as a general thing, though the irregulars were mostly laith ful, all tho regular native regiments had muti nied or had been disarmed. There were, how ever, some advantages in this general mutiny. The disaffected troops had cither scattered or vanished, or had marched off to Delhi; and the Queen's soldiers, thus relieved from the ncces | sity of watching doubtful regiments, were left free to operate in the field. Wherever conflicts had occurred, the European troop? had main I tained their wonted superiority; and notwith standing tho rebel forco in Delhi far outnum bered them, and were abundantly supplied with artillery (though not with artillerymen) tha fall of that city was daily looked for. Meanwhile, reinforcements were arriving at Calcutta from Ceylon. Burmah and Madras Two regiments just returned from Persia had made their appearauco very opportunely at Bombay, and had been sent by steam to Cal cutta. the European inhabitants of whieh city had been organized into volunteer corps by way of defence against an apprehended Mohamme dan insurrection. The troops on the way to China were to be intercepted, while some ten or fifteen thousand more troops had been dis patched from England. But until news ar rives of the fall of Delhi and the dispersion of th# large rebel force there colleoteu, the au thority of tho English in India must be consid ered rather precarious. If there was to be a revolt, the English, even if allowed to select the time for it. could hardly have chwen a more < favorable one for themselves. The closo of tho Persian war, and even the Chinese war, in having led to the dispatch of a large force to the East, are both lucky.?Nrw Yorl- Tribune. THE CAMELS. A correspondent of the Richmond Examiner, writing of tho progress of the Southwest Ex{*e dition, speaks as follows of the camels which have been imported to do duty on that route : Tho camels used by a* n re said to be very su perior ones, and eertainly present a fur more sightly appearance than the inisorable creatures which have been exhibited to crowds in the strollin/ menageries that sometimes visit your city. They are purchased for the government as a choice lot, and may doubtless be regarded as fully capable of testing tho utility ot their species in crossing the wide extended plains lying between the Mississippi valley aud tho Pacific ocean. ; With their pack saddles on, which are not often removed, they stand about eight feet in height. Their general formation does not indi cate great strength, in which, perhaps, they do ! not much, if at all, exceed the horse; but their fitness for the travel westward, if the result prove their fitness at all, consists in their capa city to endure the want of food and water. They are said to be very hardy, manifesting but little choice in their food, seeming in fact to prefer that in which other quadrupeds find but little nutriment, such as twigs, the leaves of trees, and even sticks when pressed by huuger. They are very docile, aud are easily man aged. Their gait is slow, but their stride is greater than that of a horse, being about three feet in length, and, with steady travelling, they will average three and a half miles per hour. They do not kneel to receive their load, as has been stated, at the word of command ; but with a Kir-r-r. Kir-r-r, and a gentle pressure upon the neck, or a pull upon their halters, they assume the recumbent ]>osition. It has also been stated that, when too heavily laden, they refuse to rise, and utter piteous cry. I have not seen one overloaded, but their cries are uttered to express their distress or dissatisfaction at all times. When half sup pressed, they are the same as tho lazy grunt of a hog whose rep<??e is rudely disturbed ; but, when enraged, it is much more wild, and greatly like that of a Bengal tiger, whon his keeper '? stirs him up with a long pole." 4 We had ar>out #00 pounds corn on each of them for the first day or two after leaving How ard's llanch : but each day reduces it by feud ing until we lay in another supply. They have worked adiniralily well so far, and promise to fulfil our most sanguine expectations in regard to the experiment. Mr. A. N. Breckinridge, of Staunton, Va.has charge of the caravan, assisted by S. A. Wor ley, of Abingdon, and myself, if care and at tention will promote the enterprise, I feel con fident of its entire succow. On Thursday, the 24th of June, we left the Ranch aud resumed our journey. The camels brought up the rear, and created no little ex citement in every settlement through which we passed. Men, women and children rushed out with almost frantic energy from every hut to see them. Pell mell, harem, icareir, they be siege us on all sides. A Frsxv Qi'Arrbl.?The Albany Timet snys two well known gentlemen of that city re cently formed a co-partnership. One has a very brief name, the other has one four times as long as the first. Painters charge so much per foot for lettering signs, and as the new firm was obliged to have a new sign, an order was Siven, and it was speedily " put in place." tut a few days elapsed before the bill was pre sented. when he of the short name made the , declaration that he should he charged but one third of the whole expense, as bis name occu pied ouly one-thinl of the sign ! This reasoning wss not perceivable to the " party of the second part,"' and a dissolution Is talked of, as neither of the firm will back down. This is the last and most singular cause for a " division of opin ion'" that we have heard of. A Spiritual Appkal.?A colossal sailor full of whiskey, went into a Boston " Bethel." one day last wiuter. The day was cold outside, but the air in the chapel was hot, and being crammed with poor people, in all stages of dirt, the air was not pleasant. This state of things produced visible effects upon the drunken sail or. He became quaini<<h, and dispoaed to vomit, and being jammed up among the erovd, and unable to get away, his face was twisted in strange contortions, the sweat poured from his face, and he became very pale. The preacher noted these ehauges, and attributed them to the sermon, and at once turning to the sailor, exclaimed?" Brother Mariner, how shall we help yon >M " iiurn a ' wm the sententious reply.
