arrive at any thing like an accurate statement as to
the possible amount of passenger traffic; but the
fact of the immense number of European and native
troops, Government stores, passing and re-passing
to the upper provinces, and the safe and accelerated
transmission of the mail, the frequent and at the
same time tedious and expensive palankeen tra-
velling, which to Patna costs 260 rupees, and occu-
pies four days, and the large amount of native traffic
created by a more ready and rapid mode of inter-
course between the several provinces through which
the lines will pass, shew a strong case for expecting
that large returns will eventually accrue to the share-
holders of this undertaking..

From a statistical return of the inland trade of
India, it is found that the Annual Imports and Ex-
ports of Calcutta amount to about 16,000,0007. ster-
ling, of which the chief portion comes down from
the interior, or is conveyed thither by the present
expensive and tedious mode of carriage; in the
article of Sugar alone the quantity that was brought
down to Calcutta from the north-west (where it is
computed that nearly 600,000 acres are under
culture of the Sugar Cane), in one year amounted to
about 130,000 tons.

In that portion of the line between Burdwan and Calcutta, in 1843, nearly 13,000 tons of Salt and about 18,000 tons of Sugar were carried from thence to Calcutta at the cost of 3d. per ton per mile. The gross amount of traffic between these points alone has been estimated at 103,000 tons per year; and the return thereon amounted to nearly 126,000.

In 1841 the number of chests of Opium brought
from Behar and Benares amounted to 18,327.
The estimated traffic of the Ganges is rated at
from 800,000 to 1,000,000 tons per annum; sup-

The constituent parts of this large force differ from each other, as well as from the armies of Madras and Bombay, in religion, usage, and partially in language, to which I may add that the regulations existing in each Presidency do not always assimilate.

Declaration of the Nassau Government:

The General Direction of the Domains of his Highness the Duke of Nassau declare, by these presents, that being desirous to prevent and put a stop to the numerous falsifications committed in respect to the Waters of Selters (in England called Seltzer Water) in the kingdom of Great Britain, its colonies and dependencies, which have been made known to them on indisputable evidence, and wishing by every means in their power to secure for the future to the consumers of the Waters of Selters (Seltzer Water) in the kingdom of Great Britain, its colonies and dependencies, the enjoyment of the genuine water of that spring, as also of the springs of Fachingen, Schwalbach, and Weilbach, likewise the property of his Highness the Duke of Nassau,-they have resolved, from the 1st of January, 1845, to use the metallic capsules of Mr. John Thomas Betts, of London, known under the name of "Betts's Patent Metallic Capsule," as a top covering for all the bottles, both large and small, filled with the said mineral waters for Mr. John Thomas Betts, and intended for the kingdom of Great Bitain, its colonies and dependencies.

containing all necessary accommodation, and fit for the immediate reception of a respectable family. The furniture is of a superior character, and the lawns, gardens, coach-house, stabling, and offices, are appropriate; the whole presenting a desirable abode for any party recently arrived from India, or the country. To be viewed by cards only, which, with terms, may be had at Messrs. MUSGROVE & GADSDEN'S Offices, 18, Old Broad-street, City.

On these capsules are to be impressed the arms of Nassau, and under the arms the name of the water contained in the bottle, with the words, "Betts, Importer," and "Betts's Patent," around.

The above named bottles, capsuled in such a manner, will likewise bear, as heretofore, the usual marks, consisting of a shield, impressed on the bottle, containing the arms of Nassau, or a crown, under which are the initials H. N., and around the name of the mineral water contained in the bottle, and also the usual burnt mark on the lower end of the cork.

The General Direction of the Domains further declare, by these presents, that they have granted to the said John Thomas Betts, patentee of the above described capsules, and to no one else in the kingdom of Great Britain, its colonies and dependencies, the exclusive right to purchase and export, direct from the springs, the Waters of Selters, Schwalbach, Fachingen, and Weilbach.

They declare further, that the bottles, after being filled with the respective mineral waters, are to be immediately, and in the presence of their officers, closed with the above named capsules, which bear the impression of the drawing beneath.

The public will observe, by the above declaration, that these waters, protected and hermetically closed by the patent metallic capsules, may now be obtained in the same state of freshness and perfection, irrespective of time or temperature, as at the first moment when taken from the springs, without the possibility of fraudulent substitution.

These waters are imported in hampers, containing four dozen large or five dozen small bottles, at the rate of 10s. per dozen and 2s, the hamper for the former, and 7s. per dozen and 18. 6d. the hamper for the latter, bottles and hampers not returnable. And, as the sale must inevitably extend to many thousand persons, cash payments will be indispensable; on receipt of which, hampers will be delivered at the railway receiving houses, and to any part of the metropolis, exclusive of the railway stations, where carts are liable to detention.

Mr. Betts respectfully informs the public, that the first importation having arrived, orders will be received, addressed No. 1, Wharf-road, City-road; and, to prevent disappointment, he begs further to state, that they will be executed consecutively, with reference to priority of date.
