miserable. I will use the words of his report to me :-“ The route I pursued through Cutchee was by Kunda, Kassim Ka Joke, and Bagh, which line I remember in former years to be richly cultivated. It is now a desert; I did not meet with an acre of cultivation in Cutchee; and the condition of the people is most miserable. They have no security for their property ; villages are daily plundered by the hill robbers. I heard many villagers (some of whom were wounded) declare that, if not protected, they would fy the country and come to Scinde.

“It is certainly not my duty to protect these poor people, the inhabitants of Cutchee. But it is my duty to protect the inhabitants of Scinde, and therefore I shall march, on the 16th of January, beyond the frontier, at the head of a strong force, accompanied by the Scindian chiefs, Wully Malomed Chan. deeah, Ahumed Khan Mugsey, and many others, at the head of several thousands of their followers, all determined to revenge their plundered villages upon the mountain tribes. I shall also be assisted by his highness Alley Moorad Talpoor, who will march against the enemy, by whom his frontier has also been molested.

“ It is no small satisfaction to me, that I find the Scindian chiefs, who but two years ago stood opposed to us in battle in Meeanee, now eager to draw the sword and fight under the British colours. It leaves no equivocal proof of their contentment with the government of Scinde.

“What the result of these operations may be, it is impossible for me to say ; but I hope it will be such as permanently to se. cure the tranquillity of the Scindian frontier, and enable our ally, the khan of Khelat, to recover the rule of his country from these robbers. But with this last I have nothing to do; the moment I have punished the robbers I shall retire within our own frontier, satisfied that I have performed my duty to the East India Company, to the people of Scinde, and to humanity.

“C. J. Napier, M.G., Governor of

Scinde."

The PARSEE Convicts. We are given to understand that the determination of her Majesty's Government, respecting Nasservanjee Cowasjee, Eduljee Tumboowalla, and the other l'arsees, convicted of the murder of Muncherjee, has been received by the natives generally with the deepest disappointinent. The result of the reference home bas been, that all the Parsee prisoners, without distinction, are to be transported for life. From the peculiar position we occupy, we do not think it right for us, at this moment, to do more than to announce what we learn to be in comtemplation : a public meeting to be convened for the purpose of passing resolutions, and addressing the Crown in a constitutional and legal manner, expressive of the public feeling.

New Steam COMPANY. - We understand that purchasers have already been found for the iron steamer Phlox, which recently arrived here from England. A company we bear has been formed with fifty shares, of 3,000 rupees each share. No less than forty of the shares are already taken. We believe the new company intend starting the steamer Phlox shortly to Surat.

The Comet. - We have been favoured by a correspondent with the following particulars relative to the heavenly stranger which is now visiting our skies—they are only the results of a single rough observation, but in the absence of more definite information, they may be interesting to our astronomical friends.

The comet is at present situated in the constellation Grus, between the stars B. and D. ; its right ascension being about 22 h. 45 m.; and its declination about 45 S. It passed the meridian about half-past three in the afternoon, and sets bearing S. 41°. W. at a quarter-past eight. It never rises to those parts of the earth which are of a higher latitude than 45o N. and is therefore invisible in Ceylon, and at most other observatories where the greatest facilities for observation are found. Our correspondent has promised to take more accurate observations when the state of the atmosphere will permit, and if these are successsul, we hope to communicate to our readers more accurate results in a future issue.

The above are computed from the following three positions, which are true to within 3

SINGAPORE. We regret to have to announce the loss of the Mellish, Faw. cett, which left China on the 2nd of October, and was wrecked on the 5th October, on the Paracels-the survivors (for some, it is to be gathered. perished at the time of the wreck) were twentytwo days in reaching Padarun Bay in a boat, and it would appear that their sufferings had been great, several men having died, and they only tasted fresh water twice or thrice during the passage. Eleven in all landed in safety, half the ship's company having perished at the time of the wreck and on the passage.

Captain Fawcett says, "we are now, all but two, in good health, and would walk, had we shoes, if the authorities would allow us, but we are confined to one village by their orders, which is a filthy place. I manage, with one of my officers, to get among the Chinese (whose place is about three miles up the river) for a better meal in the evening and a cleaner mat to sleep on, and I am fortunate in having saved a blanket, which I smuggle away. The Chinese are exceedingly kind and hospitable, the Cochin-Chinese are the reverse, and filthy in the extreme. There is no dependence to be placed in their faith ; when we first arrived, they promised to send us on to Singapore in fifteen days,” but “ since writing you on the 13th instant, I have learnt with horror that the Cochin-Chinese authorities do not intend sending us to Singapore till the latter end of the north east monsoon, to enable their vessel to get quietly back. There are some Chinamen about to sail from a place near us, whom I have offered to reimburse if they will facilitate my getting away; this they will not do for fear of the Cochin government, and I cannot get per. mission from them. I fear sickness, a bad rice diet, and little or no clothing, if we are detuined here so long, will leave very few to tell the tale. Under these circumstances, pray do what you can to get a vessel sent for us from our government.” No time was lost in laying this letter before the governor, who immediately requested Capt. Hayes, of H.M.'s steamer Driver, to proceed to the relief of these unfortunate men, but it seems (for we have not seen the correspondence) Capt. Hayes declined so to do, alleging that there was no anchorage for his vessel at Padaran Bay, though had he taken the trouble of consulting " Horsburgh Directory," he would have found the following passage:

Keep the highest mass of the rock on with this hill, in steering past the reef at a distance of one-third of a mile, 6 or 7 fathoms will be the least water; and when inside the reef, steer more westerly and anchor in 4 fathoms-good holding ground.”

To prove that good anchorage had been found there, the logo book of Capt. Dare, when he visited that part of the coast of Cochin-China in the Masdeu, in 1812, was sent to Capt. Hayes, but he still declinod proceeding, now stating that no doubt these people would be forwarded by the Cochin-Chinese government. The refusal of Capt. Hayes to proceed to the relief of his unfortunate countrymen is very extraordinary, seeing that the first ground of his hesitation, which might have been of some little

I am not aware of any news of importance to add to the duplicate of my last : the September Mail has not yet reached us, which is one cause of the dearth of incident during the past month. Apprehensions are entertained that the mail of that month may have been lost. Piracy continues to be practised in our immediate neighbourhood to a very great extent and with circumstances of unparalleled audacity; robbery in the town has been far less frequent, the colony is healthy, weather delightful, and public improvements and private building progressing most rapidly.
