Bangalore, 6th Sept. 1845, Saturday.

“In this season for drill, which by the general orders of MISCELLANEOUS.

the army, extends from the beginning of August to the end of BANGALORE, Sept.12.-Wilful Fire Raising. - About twelve February following. Major-general Aitchison directs that every o'clock on Friday night last, a fire broke out amongst the huts regiment of infantry in the Mysore division shall begin as soon occupied by the followers of the 3rd regiment of light cavalry, as the weather will permit, with the first part of the regulation and adjacent to the lines of that corps. It raged for some time book, of field exercise, and evolutions of the army, and go with great fury; the wind being rather high at the time, increas. regularly through parts 1, 2, 3, and 5, as the easiest, shortest, and ing it. Between fifty and sixty huts were destroyed, and great most certain method of making every individual thoroughly fears were entertained that it would reach the spot occupied by acquainted with them, and he particularly enjoins commanding the European pensioners ; this was only prevented by the pull- officers to see that their captains and subalterns are well in.


structed in parts No. 1 and 2, as without such elementary knowledge in those officers no regiment can excel in drill

. When marching to, or in returning from the ground of exercise, a regiment will always have one company formed as an advance guard and one as a rear guard."

The infantry brigade was out at field exercise on Tuesday morning, on the cantorment parade ground, and the cavalry brigade was out on Wednesday morning at exercise on the brigade exercising ground.

A bazaar report has been current here this week, that fears are entertained of another rising in the Southern Mahratta country; that the troops at Bellary are likely to move, and that half of the King's Hussars and half of the 1st Fusileers are to move from this in that direction ; such is the bazaar gup.

Major-general Cubbon, our worthy commissioner, Jeft this on Tuesday, on a tour into the interior of the province, proceeding first towards Coongall, and afterwards to Hoonsoor and other quarters.

SPORTING. – Some parties are out again from the cantonment, shooting. We understand that a few snipe have been seen in the neighbourhood, but they are seldom to be found so early in the season, and ihere is little else to be met with worth going after at present. Hares are very plentiful just now, and may be purchased in the bazaar for a few annas each, alive. They are caught, we believe, with nets, by the jungle people, who bring in baskets full of them, quails, partridges, and peacocks, every morning nearly.

The weather continues pleasant enough, but still a great cry out for rain, of which there have been appearances at different times during the past week, but still it keeps off, and the cultivators of the soil are taking serious alarm for their crops. In. deed, some say part of the crops are spoiled already. We have had some very disagreeable days from the excessive high winds. Sunday last was a very unpleasant day, blowing high wind all day, with clouds of dust penetrating every where, and covering every place, as from a sieve-even in the house it is found sadly disagreeable, but to such as are compelled to be out of doors and move about, it is very annoying.

There is little or no sicknees here at present, either amongst Europeans or natives.

Sept. 19.- Numerous reports are still in circulation relative to movements of the troops-one very current is, that half of the King's Hussars are to go to Poonah, to replace the 14th dragoons going to Bengal.

The following appeared in orders the other day :

a drought) entertained by the inhabitants generally, have been happily, dissipated by a seasonable and abundant supply of rain, which has fallen during the past week, accompanied with loud peals of thunder and vivid flashes of lightning; and kind Pro vidence has thereby graciously averted a calamity which was sadly anticipated by the residents; still more is needed, and we have every indication of a further supply. The ground is well saturated with it, and the atmosphere has necessarily become cooler.

Mr. Harton, overseer of the Commissariat Department, arrived here recently from Cuttack, with a view to engage vessels for the purpose of conveying saul timbers from the port of Dhamra to the presidency.

The bark Amelia, from Madras, arrived here lately, and is to sail for Maulmain to-morrow or the day after. The bark Clarissa is daily expected from Madras with the Rev. Mr. Fen. nell and family on board.

PaulGhAUT, Sept. 15:— The heathen have kept Paulghaut in an uproar day and night for the last week, performing the “ koodoompauvy,” in the belief that so powerful a site will induce Madapullay and her assistant deities to favour them even at this eleventh hour with rain ; how far a few heavy showers and more we cannot naturally expect) might benefit the present wretched crops we presume not to say; but, judging from appearances, the drought has lasted too long and done too much mischief to be materially remedied by any thing short of another monsoon. On every side the half-formed rice is parched to yellowness, and those fields of it which were not far enough advanced in growth to produce ears of corn, look as russet and withered as the mere stubble left after harvest. In the compounds and gardens all the plants are shrivelling up and rapidly crumbling to dust. Want of rain does not appear to be confined to this district, and if timely measures are not taken to import and store up grain, fearful sufferings are likely to follow this evident visitation, In seasons of calamity we believe it is usual to offer up public prayers in all churches and chapels that God may be pleased to avert the prevailing scourge from the borders of the land where his people sojourn; the custom is undoubtedly a pri. mitive and laudable one; we have it on record, that such general supplications have been miraculously responded to, and we fear this strong dependance of the Christian is too much neglected in India. The idolaters of Malabar are, in their mistaken way, setting us an example, at which we, with our better light and truer knowledge, have reason to blush !

Captain Cotton and Brevet Captain Birdwood, both of the Civil Engincers, are here at present, on route to the coast; the former proceeds in a day or two to inspect the new lines of road, making and proposed to be made, through Malabar and Mysore.

The heat for several hours daily is very distressing, though the thermometer has not risen above eighty-four degrees in the shade; but there is a sultriness in the air that is really suffocating at times. Can the unusual state of the weather have any possible connection with the earthquakes so prevalent of late in the upper provinces, or the comets of the last and present years? Some of our gentlemen shikarees have been doing considerable execution this season amongst the woodland monsters. Ensign McH alone killed three large elephants in the S. W. Jun. gle, and a good account is expected of many more; the destrue. tion of those animals is of the greatest benefit to the cultivators, whose labour of months they frequently ruin and devour in one night.

Bangalore, 15th Sept. 1815. “The Major-General having observed the delay that takes place in bringing offenders to trial by regimental courts martial, directs that all such triuls shall take place as soon as possible after twenty-four hours have elapsed from the time of the offence being committed --and that whenever the interval shall amount to seven entire days, especial report to account for the delay shall be forwarded to the division head-quarters, with the pro. ceedings of the trial.”

THE WEATHER. - We have within the last week experienced a delightful change. On Friday night we had a great deal of thunder, followed by a heavy fall of rain, and Saturday morning set in with a regular downpour; we have bad several showers since, particularly on Tuesday evening, when it rained for some hours heavily. - Athena um,

BERHAMPORE, SEPTEMBER 5.-Since my last communication, we had for two or three days a steady fall of rain, and occasion. ally a shower, but not sufficient, I believe, for the crops; the surrounding cuntry appears to have been more fortunate, as in some places the fields present a sheet of water; the last fall has, in some measure, gladdened the hearts of the poor ryots, who had begun to despair; the dookendars, who are ever ready to take advantage of the slightest change in the weather, have already raised the price of grain.

The troops, I am glad to say, continue healthy, particularly at Russellcondah, which may be attributed to the cleanliness of the place in general; and much praise is due to the officer commanding at that station, and to the adjutant, for the attention paid by them to the comforts of the men.

VIZAGAPATAM, Sart. 15.-- Authentic information reached this place about a se'nniglit since of the death of bis highness the Rajah of Vizianagrum at Benares. It is said that his son, who has passed his minority, will have to return to Vizianagrum shortly, and assume charge of his country, which has been hitherto held by the Government. I understand that an order has been issued by the collector to the effect that all the Mokassah lands appertaining to the said zemindary, granted by the late Rajah to individuals, are to revert to it, by his demise.
