tone*, wl*re the relatives were too poor to pay for More fuel, j<m see buried ui tbe ashen. A most foul atenah tills tbe air. At ail boom at 4m day corpses are brought down, and toe unseemly levity of the naked wretches wbo etir up tbe fuel, and more espe cially when tbey show you the body by running % pole into it* aide, would h mtei your departure, did you not arreat your stops to gaze upon the huagry lock of raven* and crmn and carrion kites who ap Eouli tin corpsea bef u* tbe lire has ceased to ru, w.thin a do? proximity, to seize upon tbe leant atom saved from the flame. Hundreds of them were within a few feet, intently peer ing into the aslies, while the more dignified ad jaunts were arched upon the hoase tops and on tbe walls, waiting tor iiieir share of the entertainment. No one moleeta them, for the birds sire sacred, and eat up the tilth about the city. When too poor to Uiy the privilege of burning their relatives they let tbe tide wash Ummii off the iieach, so ne of them, perhaps, before tbe lite has left the body, and they are boated off to sea. 1 have often beard the cap tains of eiif|s tell of the boding fouling the anchors, and tbe sickenLig stench that arose in cleaning them when some half a dozen had lodged there; and wheutver 1 dnuik the water of the Hoogly, eaten curry, or Ish at brerjrfast, 1 could bat be reminded oi the shrimp traps and "fish bait'' of which I had ho many times beard. The engineer ea board tin* Fiery Cross on alluding to the sub ject, was Moddenly taken ill, for his imagination was stronger than his stomach. I have seen little, but all 1 with to see. Oi India :i worship. It is an in tricate ceremony. Br&hm is the paternal ancestor, the bead deity; and be baa three sons, who officiate in their respective spheres. Brahma creates, Visbna preserves, and Shiva destroys, each acting tor him self , and each worshipped tor his particular power. Each represents one gr ind bead, and from the* three at* born the uiilli >us of gods that are wor shipped through the empire animal and vegetable, animated and inanimate, alive and dead, in tbe water and on the land. In India even-thing that is born, everything that lives, everything that dies, reprecents some emblem of their religion; and when and wherever that religion has been interfered with it bas given rise to much bitter feeling and involved no little danger. Sir William Kentinck abolished suttee, sr the sell iinmolati >n of widows on the funeral pile of their husbands, and his bronze monument stands ?ut in bold relief, to tell you of the act. But it would be difficult to ascertain if in some instances this prae fcee is not still followed. Although they consider, I believe, a cow uiore sacred than a woa<an, yet I saw a small heifer give uo ber helpless life to the sacrifice. No Governor General has abolished the torturing customs where devotees go .through the most }> unful operations, to show their loure of their religion, and bow devont is their womLip; with irons through the body, they swing round a*, round, ?t down on steel instruments, torture their limbs into the most excrutiatingly painful positions, an 1 go through ail the horrors of the inquisition. Next month, in April, some of tho.-e days when the toitnre is the worship, will givj the stranger tbe opportunity of witnessing that which I do not care to behold, for already I have atoii enough to disgust sm with the commou peopk their habits, their cus toms. their dress, their treachery, their duplicity and their religion. 49W able bodied Chinaman, iu appearance to say the leant , Is woith half adown natives of Bengal; for as a race, the former are far ahead oi the latter. Notwithstanding tbe troops of native shopkeepers and tradesmen always hovering about you, there are aplenty of Europeans ready to take your money. * lish tailors. English barbers, English hatters English jewellers, English hotels and English druggists, all exercise their ingenuity in properly repieeenting their respective callings, i tie ex change mart, as tbey term it, contains a little of ever) thing ? a perfec t talmagtmdi. Ton can purchase anything you please, from an India rubber coat to a penny whistle ? from a lady's wot k box to a gentleman s dressing case; and the prices are moderate. I bought several beautiful sihrer ornaments made by the artisans of Cuttack ? bracelets, bosquet holders, breast pins and sundry sicknacks, many of which were of exquisite work manship. Just at tbe present time tbe exchange is being cleared preparatory to the opium sale, which 11th ot every montn, a sight I i off the 11th oi every month, a sight I am sorry I shall not witness, for it 'is one of the toted exhibitions of Calcutta. The opium from Benares and Patna is sold here at public auction, by the Hoaorabie Company, through a salaried auctioneer, twelve times during the year, to the highest bidder. Catalogues are early circulated, and tbe purchasers from the country are early in town. As a chest of Patns passes like a bank note, no sampling or ex amination takes place. Looking from an elevation in tbe rorm you see a most extraordinary spectacle ?all nations ? si I European race* are represented. In the Stock Exchange and tbe Bourse yoo may me the latter, but at the opium sales room "lily can you see the grand mixture of races. Gambling is a natural vice among the Indians, and tbey enjoy beyond anything else tbe peculiar excitement of tbe <>pinm malt; and it is the motley appearance of the bidders, combined with tbe con fusion f tongues and the strong odirs that arise from the perspiring crowd that marks the place. Jews and Gentiles are wild in their manner; and Greeks. Armenians, Persians, mingled in w.lh native Indiana of many dialects: and Englishmen, and ail the repic*entatives of tbe continent of Europr . of Asia and of Africa are wrocght ap to tbe greatest possible excitement by tbe sharp bidding aral thequick auctioneer, who seems to hie ubiqui tous. The bells of London and of Paris are u<4 thronged with uion re?ki?? men. for the amounts are heavy, and one bid will nuks or loss a fortune. Much of the gambling takes place in the bazaar be fore tbe sale. But I cannot Wait till Monday, and most c 'Oteut myselt with hearsay. I& the afternoon I made my.*!f? martyr to cuti osity . and ascended to the top of tbe Ochtertoov Monument, np seme two hundred itme steps.

The native mevhan'a are men of in -I ' ' vll tl ifi itJ thf taoves a tbe B)^r un'fbt cbe? bos 'J. ' Ton am surprised to find them bo familiar with | commerce and commercial usages Naturally sharp i and quick to learn, by being brought in contact with bosixwM men from every coast, after graduat ing from the K"gKnh school, they become familiar with all the tricks of trade. If they wish to pur chase, they appear before you as a seller; if they have indigo to dispose of, they will inquire for needs, and if freight is to be eugaged, they will offer you a ship. Intuitively they understood all the clap trap of the Stock Exchange; with astonish ing cleverness they put the market up and down with as much ease as the most experienced bulls and bear* of the West, and before or after the arri val of a mail, you meet them where you least expect It? always a little in advance. No Europeans were equal to cope with them in managing prices, in regu lating exchanges, or In dodging round sharp corners, till the Greeks dropped down among them; but since so many of them have appeared in Calcutta the natives have had to keep their eyes wide open. In many of the European houses the Banyans work the machinery, famishing tUeart, or native clerks, managing the details of office, and of government, and in the American trade, furnishing capital, or rather, buying cargoes, cashing acceptances, and keeping the wheels on the turn till the credit can be realized alter the cargo is on board. These rue a accumulate fortune*, while their employers work on without meeting with the same success. Baboo Ashootas Day, (or the Arm,) and Baboo Rvjendar, and Kaledos Dutt arc the great American Banyans, and manage the bu-inese of most of the American houses. The former house, almost since the commence ment of the century, has done an extensive business direct wlih the Boston iner< hanta, aud was among the tirst 1 called upon, when 1 received the intelli gence of his death, some week ? since; but the busi ness still goes on as before. tiy his nephew and suc cessors, while the extensive property of the late Baboo, has brought out rival claimants, and report says ?hut ihe court clerks are fattening on expect* tion. Ai-hootas Day and Baboo Bam Gopol <;&o-e. I believe, are the ouly two native merchants who recei\e to any extent direct orders from abroad; the former for American, the latter ou English account. The business of Calcutta seems to be done through the medium of chits and brokers? the merchant seldom meeting, for you never tind any one at the exchange. This reserve creates jealously, and Cal cutta is ahead of China in that respect, for in China jou meet over the dinner table, in the gardens or at the reading roous. Even the Banyans and native merchants employ brokers, and seldom go to the bazaars: bnt the Greeks are always on the alert. Pro duce } asses through many hands before it reaches the ship, and each party levies and collects his toll. The custom that prevailed in England in Cromwell's time, of return commissions, drawbacks, Ac., is understood in India; and the Banyan, the broker, the mabdjun, all depend upon th^r durttoorrt In all heavy transactions, as your bearer, or khidmut-gar, expects his return commission when you send him tor a candle, or a bunch of matches. The Bengal Banyan is not the China comprador, and jet they are not so much unlike: each manages the merchants, aud each handles the treasure, and each appears to be commercially on intimate relations with tne foreign merchants. I visited the resi dence of the l>utt family, where all the opulence and luxuries that wealth commands is scattered abcut the rooms. Paintings and engravings, mo | saic from Home and porcelain from Sevres, English i and French furniture, and everything Indian and European that they can get bold of, is purchased to adorn thtir residences. The large rooms of valu able merchandise resembled more an ill-assorted pawnbroker's shop in London than anything else I could think ot. I found the Bab>> al | almost naked, in his bedroom, on the floor, a pun I kah over him . and in his hand an English histoid of the K'? war. Ihe room was beautifully fur nished, but the pictures that adorned the walia showed the licentious taste of the Bengalee. He was most familiar with the geography, the commerce, the politics of other natiout ? wanted to know the effect of the late wonderfn! production of gold, and how it would operate ou the silver coinage ? asked if the losses still continued as heavy In the Australian trade as at first, and if our cotton crop in the Spates would exceed three millions of bales, and if in case of peace clipper ships would depreciate. His religion, be said, would not allow bim to go abroad, but nothing would be rnoie pleasant to lum than to visit Mount Vernon. Asbeotes Day had a beauti ful place, and before hi* death gave a most expen rive nevtrh, combining the immoralities of the Eu r< ( tan with rhe luxuriant and voluptuous habits of the natives. He denied himself nothing that mo ney would giie liim.

If permitted, I promiBe ^ make the chapter short. A year of constant read ing would hardly finish the works on India, for the volumes would crowd a library-memoirs, journals, sketches of the multitude of civil servants of the Honorable Company- histories and reports of Gov ernor Generals from Lord Clive to I -ord Canning annals , records and accounts of the Board of Direc tors? biographies, historical reminiscences, des patches, and pretty volumes of clever military offi cers who, during yean of service, had little to do bat write, draw bills, smoke, piay cards and shoot tigers from out of a howdon, and others, who were in action, fought, gave their own account of the battle, and won medals und eulogies for their braverv. The printing press lias been always active in introducing distinguished civil and military officers to the lite rary public, and books on "our Eastern Empire" ar to be found everywhere but where you mo?t wan tnem. some ol the writers have become rich, other poor, and some won a tame; others sunk into ob scanty with the first edition; but most of them lost their hair, their lungs, and, in one or Iwosolitary in fv'u"' 11 coBJteience in the honorable service >f the Honorable Company. Tourists, too, poetical and prosaic ? some falling into hysterical composition * hen standing on the. sum cuts of high mooutuins , or resting in their pa'aquecs on the banks of grand rivers, watching the innocent gambols of Hindoo maidens, whose ablutions attracted th*;ni. while ottier writers tell of brave hunts, where they have luxuri ated in the exciting embraces of a wounded 'einale twer; and missionaries who have grown inspired in describing the horrors of the opium trade? the thrill tog scenes of the jnngle- the revolting ,f heathen worship, and the piayers whi'^n they have mcde in the evangelization ol the races? prayers somewhat d<>ubted by many of the compa ny s servants, who, living a the same localities, have seen few instances of a frui'. the -eed of *hi h wa? planted Jong apo, but somehow or other refuses to ripen under an Indian sun - missionaries wnose life of exile ccmn.ands admira'ion ? and far be it 1'rorri me to spenk lightly of their labors, for their motives ate the best? although success seldom crowns their ute of toil and ahsento. Others have written, and many who never saw the Indian shore have written, and many of their works shew astonishing research and r-areful compilation. Moore s knowledge ol trie Orient is sprinkled along the great three thousand generic iioems like pearls in a diamond necklace, and yet he never saw the country. Kurke and fox and Sheridan enchanted Parliament with their start ling pictures of Indian life when the American na tion was in its cradle, and yet they were not in India. From such a mass of composition one is fairly disheartened in reading upon such a coun try. No digest like Goldsmith's History of England has yet been thrown together. Yea? I am wrong? MacParlane, who wrote on Japan, has published a valuable summary, which gives otic taste for more. \ et hia travels never extended to the East. Bishop Hcber's "Indian Journal," "Wellington's De spatches, ' P. Auber's "Rise and Progress of Bri tish Power in India," Jsmes' "Military Trauaac tions of the Brlsh Nation in Hindostan'' ? a work of more than ordinary merit; Mill's "History of B.i'ish India," which, I think, passed under Macauiav'a favorable criticism ia the Edtnburg Rteieu; Scott's "History of Bengal," Gleiga "Warren Hustings, ' are among sumo of the more prominent writings; but only in proportion as the letter A ia to the alphabet. In volume four? the last of the bril liant series that has been issued from the press from the pen ot England's great historian? you will find an occasional page of England's progress in the hast, and aa you read the eloquent description of the birth and intanrv of the empire you long for ano ther chapter, and wait with imiiatient anticipation to see something of its youth and manhood. He tells Sou that the Honorable Company was incorporated v England's great yueen on the last day of the sixteenth century, just when the Mogul monarchy was at the acme of its fame? when Akbar, the il lustrious descendant of the House of Tamerlaue, inherited lands and wealth surpassing anything in ^ est* rn grandeur. But Macaulay goes no further back. Yet India had a glorious Alexander who conquered his Bucephalus before he wept that there were no more worlds to conquer, first told Eu rope ot the splendor of India, for his armies were the first to enter the Punjaub. Political changes have always been taking place in the Esst. la the eleventh century Constantinople held the trade and worked the oracle or fiiuace: then Italians cmaded out the Turks, ar.d Marco Polo was as active as he had been in Chira; and years after Columbus found a continent? a new track to India? changed the commerce ef the Orient, and Vasco De ( lama claimed the discovery of the Caj* of Good Hope race course. and the I'ortugueae displaced the Italians and the Arabs in the trade . and in ealouay of Portugal's progress, the Dutch. th? French and the English entend the field, and expeditions were des patched to 1: dia via the Good of Hope track, but Thorn a* Cavendish and Tapt. Raymond only openeM the door to the joint stock ? otnnany, who sabecribM one hundred and fifty thousand do.lars, and placed the direction under a committee of fifteen. John Mildenhail was the fir^t to make the over land journey to the new cemmerc al ateoa. A year later, a charter for fifteen years received the royiil a stent, and on the 2d ol May, 1W)1 . the little ti-.I ; fleet sailed from Torbay under the comman.i ?

R ? day h* stepped into the gubernatorial chair, at Madras, the Bengal Nabob took Calcutta. Then came that chapter of unheard of cruelty, familiar to every child who ha* learned to read hi* story book*. The tragedy of the Black Hole occurred juur a hun drt'J jeais ago. The duujreon was but twenty feet square. Mid summer heat was parching India. The little garrison tbongnt it all a joke, when they were ordered to go in; button-fuse was te die, for Sarajahul Dowlak a 1 orders mast be obeyed; prolonged s'ifferiug was bet | ter titan instant death ; they entered, one bundled I and forty-six in all. The door was <*los d, the small aperture admitted neither light nor air. Whan they began to exchange breaths the startling truth burst upon them. The air already was almost putrid; they shrieked, they yelled in mortal agony; they screamed tor water and then killed each other over the cup which was passed through the grating, while the poor prisoners were biting and squeeaing each other s life away? gasping for air, for water, lor anything to relieve them of their agony. The iailers laughed and danced in pure delight. Hol meil, the highest in rank, offered the jailor heavy bribes; but no, the Nabob was sleeping, and no one dared to wake him. In the morning , when the debauch

was slept away, he ordered the dungeon door to be opened, and out staggered twenty-three swolfen distorted living corpses I One hundred and twenty, three were piled up ? a putrefying mass of men ? all shapes ana forms were represented In the death strut yle The English woman who survived was sent to the harem of the Prince of Moorshedabad. Helmed was saved and tells the tale. The dead were buried on the spjt, but tne harrowing picture did Dot move in tbe *east the granite disposition of he human tiger. The horrioJe deed reached Olive, and the celebrated battle of Planaey showed the inhiman Nabob that it was a tool hardy thing to trific with the feelings of Englishmen. The soldiers fought like bulldogs; revenge stimulated them on. and 'he Nabob's army of 60,000 stroag was brokeu like axed. Clive lost but t-veiity-two men. The gallant 3!.th still wears the pro;. d motto, Primus in JnduM. Clive w*s now at the renith of his fame, bu his enemies were at work at home. His successes against the Dutch invasion from Java, his victorious battles against Indian armies large enough to aval low him, his civil and administrative abilities could not save him. Hp had forged a solemn treaty; he was cognizant of the assassination of Suraj-l)o*-bih by t! e f?n of the Nabob of Lis own creation, Me-r .'aftier; ho bad done deeds blackening to tbe cha racter of an henest man. He went back to Eng land, leaving everything quiet behind him. and in 176&ietorr.ed again, tor the ttiird and last time. Oin e more be became tbe company's benefactor; rooted out corruption and bribery among the civil servants; introduced tbe salt monopoly, still in exlsteme, in-tead of inner, sing the pay of the mi litan. But when he went ba>:k to England his libellers had marie him out .1 villain, a fiend incar nate, who bad violated pub.ic faith, reduced pro vinces to beggary, deposed prince* , and such uu n r.s Mackenzie, Eoote and Cooper assisted in driving the gieat man mad, and goaded on past oil en durance, he carricd at the mdioftincracy of his youth, for it is supposed that the slandered Peer, lired of it, ended his own life. When Clive left India all went wrong. In 1770, the crops failed ? the lamine was terrible? million ? jierished? 60me say one-third of the Bengal populu lion were swept away. In 177'J,the company were obliged to borrow from the Bank of England, to keep themselves above water. We are now under the administration of another Governor General, ami another instance of rising from tbe ranks or humble life. Warren Hastings arrived In Bengal in 1750, and made illicit but successful love to the Baronea* Truboff. on his passage out? her husband blind to the infidelity. Commencing like Clive, as a writer his energy and his ability carried him steadily up the ladder of fame. His forte was administration, not military tactics: a great man was wanted, and he proved equal to the emergency, and he u.~e?l ttn all selfish and all-powerful freemasonry of the com pany to carty out Lis bold and sometimes hearties, plans. In reviewing Gleig'a three volutned work on Warren Hastings, in the Edinburgh Review, of 1841, Hacaulsv does not spare him, for his damnable loaning of an English army to Sucaj Dowlah for forty lacs, or $2,000,000, to put down tbe border princes For his unacnipulou-< measures regarding the Begiun* ot Oud<? for the execution of Nuncomar? read the impeachment paper before the House of Lords. \N hen She ridan made the ludicrous mistake in speaking of the " ferocious Dhooliese, who savagely 1 ashed in and carried the wounded from the field, he would have laughed, could he have known that be bad wionght himself up to such excitement aua virtuous indignation in des ribing an open iialun quin or simpie contrivance for taking the poor crea lines off to the hospital shed, instead of to the slaughter. Sheridan's speech, for which Burke an?l Fox had furnished the material, does not make the Governor General an angel by anv means, ami llaiaulay, in the review alluded to, is bitter when touching on that inhuman war, when their villa#-* a ere burnt, their children butchered, and their wo men violuted. Hastings was a wonderful man, wh ther sending despatches in quills made into earrin^ to escape detection, when at Benares (after ChevV Sing ran aaay), when his life was in danger? ?r n.hng the destinies of India. with an impoverisbci tieasuiy? or defending himself in nine years' per.i cution? when his fortune was spent in useless la*-? he showed the signet of a great mind. These i?u. Clive and Hasting*, were the earliest and the Ereate t of tbe Governor General* of India, imd I ?ve, therefore, dwelt longer when speakiu; ..j tlen'. While Lord Cornwallis was losing the empire of the West, Hastings preserved the enpire of the East The one gave up America, the other aaveJ the Cainatica. When England and America were signing the Dea<e papers, Fo* lost his India bill, and with It 'he Premier snip; but his powerful enemy, Pitt, with ; -e entire wealth of tbe Last India Company to suppoi h m, the next year was more fUKces-fuf, and fixeo Liui-clf firml v on tbe government benches. l'hi* was ibe bill which instituted the Board of Control, the President being ti e head of the Indian govern ment. The Governor General and Council of thref oae of which was tl.e military commander-ln chic' ? fhe King holding the power of nominating th. officer, also of approving or re< idling the Governot Gtn? ral. In 17nt> Lord Cornwallis was sent ont by the ft mjany ; and although hit banner fell before th? little armv ol our first l rose again in It dia. and showed himself an able general and go vtrncr. In 17 !?3 he returned home after defending Tippoo Solb in ?ix vears' hard fighting. Sir Johi. Shore succeeded, and, aiter a ahoit stay, was maoi an lilsli peer.

Very cordial, and upon leaving him I Inquired if 1 ihould call again soon, a s 1 sup posed some temporary excitement had disturbed his mind, and an he supposed, uutitted him lor the Sacra ment at the moment, to which he replied by uodding his head affirmatively, and extending his left hand in tho kindest possible manner. Q. Ind you sapitose at this in terview, that Mr. Parish understood the observations and questions, that were addressed to him ? A. I hud no room to doubt that Q. Did pou have any other inter view with him, prior to the tlrst administration of the Lord's Supper i A. 1 have no recollection at this time of any other. Q. Please stato wimt oocured upon the oc casion ol' the first administration of the Ixird'a dapper? A. ] was sent for on the 30th of Marco, to administer the communion; 1 expressed to Mr. Parish my hope that ail difficulties which liad prevented his recelvinj too sacra mental my previous visit, were now removed; he re plied "Yah yah," in bis emphatic way, noddng his head'empbalically , and smiled ui>on me in a peasant way; I then inquired If it was his wish thu w? should now proceed with the sacrament, to that he again replie I by uodding bis head and saying es, after which 1 ad nnntetered the sacrament to Mrs. Parish, and I believe Mary Ann, the servant, and Jlr. P?rwh. ti- What was bis manner during tho administration, In respect of ru . ponscs, and how i id he receive the elements? A. His manner wus very devout, great appearance ot humility ?t heart, and 1 think he would occa ionally make a soun l of acquiescence, where the answer should come in: ne eceived the bread in his left hand. u.nd conveyed it to his mouth, and took the cup in his left hand, applying it to his lips .is any ->ther communicant wo ild have done. V. i>id you suppose on thi*? occasion that he understood what was addressed to him or spoken in hi* presence ? There was no possible room to doubt tint. Q What was then bis condition of bodily health and the appear ance of bis feature* ? A. His bouily health seemed to be Mood, and his features natural Q. How many limes and at what period did you administer thih ordinance on ward to the period of his death? t. I have record of having ail ministered the commun.on seventeen times iu all, generally threo times a year, sometimes four; 1 may have administered it on other occasions of which I have no; the following are the dates from my record :?

Q Aside from any iiarticuUr onvrsation that m.;y have occurred at any ooo of these admioist a tions of the communion, plea-e Halo what the man ner of the administration and re option of tha sacrament war? A. Uniformly his manner was devout and humble in tlie extreme, the utmos. propriety of decorum and mu ntfe.-tation of feeling ; he seemed to he always very audi impressed wth the solemnity of the occasion; as to his taking tho ilements bis manner was precisely the game us on the tirst occasion, taking the bread and cup in his hand and conveying them to his muutb; the sacrament was always, on these o> asions, ad ministered at his house Q What persons do you remem her at any of these times, who united in the sacrameut? A 1 have no recollection of other porsous than M's. Parish and this larhlui domestic servant who was called Mary Ann Mr. Parish has himself requested thai she might he called he would do this by pointing to the door and nodding to his wile; she would fmqulrt if he wished ber to cad Mary Ann, aud he signiiied that was his wi-di: this tccurred more than once. i).

Inscribe his situation and what |?ssci during that visit? A.
