[blocks in formation]

ANSWER. Mr. Archdeacon and Rev. Brethren,

It cannot but be most consoling to my anxious mind to receive such an affectionate assurance of your love and confidence as this address conveys.

It has pleased our blessed Lord and Master to connect us in our duties to each other not only by the paramount obligations of Divine injunctions on his part and voluntary engagement on ours, but also by the ties of mutual sympathy and love, and all the bonds of our social nature sanctified and elevated by his grace.

The great apostle St. Paul poured out his whole soul in addressing the churches, and solicits their prayers, begs their acceptance of his services, commends by name those who had especially succoured him, rejoices in their steadfastness, and mourns if they declined from God.

A bishop, therefore, in the present day, ought much more to request the earnest prayers of his clergy, throw himself upon their indulgence, and dérive comfort from all the tokens of their union amongst themselves and growth in grace and holiness.

And, most of all, in a new diocese like Calcutta, stretching by its metropolitical duties over the whole of the three sees of India, calling the bishop from his chief city on visitation for a year and a half at a time, must be need the prayers, the counsel, the support, the forbearance, and the forgiveness of his clergy and their flocks.

But it is to God, our Divine Redeemer, that I look up with humble thankfulness for any thing I have been enabled to accomplish, and for that benediction which he alone can vouchsafe ; and to him I would also ascribe the very good will and kindness of my reverend clergy, which is so touching to my feelings at this time.

My objects in India have been, the conversion of the souls of our native and nominal Christian population, the establishment of Christian missions, the orderly walk of the catechists, schoolmasters, and the native flocks, and the prosperity of Bishop's College-all entirely in subordination to the glory of Christ.

I have aimed also at the edification of the Christian communities, both native and European, in the order, discipline, and polity of our own beloved church, of which I am constituted the guardian in this diocese.

You refer in too flattering a manner to the new cathedral, the Church Building Fund, and the Additional Clergy Society. There are indeed amongst the measures to which I liave directed my attention, assisted by my venerable archdeacon and my reverend clergy, and greatly aided by the number of years I have been permitted to remain in India.

In the progress of all these, and every other measure, I have endeavoured to resist and oppose, on the one hand, the assaults and allurements of semi-popish tractarianism, and on the other, any relaxation of the real doctrine and discipline of our church as laid down by Cranmer, Jewel, and Hooker.

My brethren will find, in the new churches, all the longestablished usages of religion, as I left them in England in June 1832, without addition or detraction.

So in St. Paul's Cathedral I shall carry out all the promises made in my report of 1839 and 1841 ; every thing usually attached, when I sailed for India, to our Protestant English cathedrals, will be found in St. Paul's, Calcutta-the transepts, the lantern, tbe cathedral stalls, the bishop's seat, the seats for the governor-general and council, and for the venerable arch. deacon and canons—the pews or benches for the choristers—the organ-the deeply-stained glass in the eastern and southern windows to modify our Bengal sun--the clock with its chimes - the lectern-and the daily and weekly religious services, as many of them as our climate and circumstances will allow.

I am not indeed without my fears that, now the Protestant mind at home has been justly and most beneficially on the whole awakened, it should, like all popular movements, run into extremes and raise the old cavils against the simplest forms and ceremonies of our Protestant episcopal church.

My brethren may rely upon this, that I shall stand up as de. terminately for the usual order and appearance of our churcles, as recognised in 1832, as I have resisted the revival of the spirit and conduct of Archbishop Laud and the Nonjurors under the form of tractarianism.

But love is what I would urge in all we do or attempt. Let this be the impress of our religion. Let me hear, dear brethren, of your affairs; that you stand fast in one spirit, and strive together for the faith of the Gospel.

I cannot decline your request, which bears to me the nature of a command, to sit for my portrait, if I reach home in safety. I only beg that it may not be put up in the Cathedral Library till after my death.

MISCELLANEOUS. A select meeting of Hindoo gentleman was held yesterday for the purpose of considering the best mode of establishing a school in Calcutta. It was proposed that the intended school shall impart learning to 1,000 boys, who are to be placed in 20 classes under 10 teachers, at an aggregate expense of 1,000 rupees per month.

It was thought advisable to raise a capital of 300,000 rupees, to be vested in 4 per cent. Government loans to cover such expenses by interest ; and that for the present the school should be maintained upon donations :- All other matters relating to the institution, and its denomination await the reconsideration of the next public meeting, which will shortly take place. - Eng. lishman, May 20.

A singular report has been prevailing here relative to the stealing of male children for the purpose of immolation by a Baboo, who was digging a tank for his use, but finding no water at even a great depth, opportunely saw a dream admonishing him that by sacrificing two of his male children on the site, not only water in plenty, but a large treasure would reward his devotion; the Baboo, not liking to part with his own flesh and blood in this manner, even for this apparent advantage, was next advised by the kindly vision to obtain twenty-one children, belonging to others for sacrifice, and being pleased with this arrangement, actually sent emissaries to procure the necessary number of victims. Some persons have already been detected in prosecution of these strange commands; and only last evening a man with two children was detained on suspicion. Most of the natives are on the alert, apparently placing every faith in this most ex. traordinary report. —Englishman, May 26.

We have heard of a collision yesterday morning between the steamers Dwarkanauth and Frances Gordon off Middle Point, originating, as we understand, in the desire of the captain of the latter vessel to prove her superior speed. It seems he put his helm hard a starboard with the intention of going round the Dwarkanauth (having just passed her), that the same was done on board the Dwarkanauth to prevent this, and that some further manoeuvring ended in the Frances Gordon being struck on the larboard paddle-box, and losing her after paddle-box cabins, stanchions, &c. &c. This is not very profitable work for the Company. We think that when the Frances Gordon had gone by, she might have been satisfied and gone on, instead of attempting the experiment of going round. - Bengal Hur. karu, June 2.

The Dhurrumtollah bazar was the scene of a great riot yesterday morning, in consequence of a sheriff's officer having gone there for the purpose of confiscating the property of certain of the bazar people. The whole bazar rose in a body, and put the officer to fight, who again renewed the charge with a whole posse of police, with Europeans at their head, but with the same result, the bazar folks completely routing the assailants; soon after, having rallied, armed with large clubs, they ap. proached in all their strength, but found all quiet, made the requisite arrests, and retired. - Englishman, 10th May.

The Delhi papers contain extracts from letters from Sukkur to the 8th instant, stating that the mess-house of the 2nd Bengal European regiment was burnt to the ground on the 6th instant, in the brief space of half an hour. Every thing was destroyed, including the only English billiard table in Sindh, and between 8 and 10,000 rupees' worth of mess stores.

Thirteen horses belonging to the estate of the late Rajah Kristonauth Roy were yesterday sold by aution at Messrs. Tulloh and Co. They averaged 1291 rupees each, one of them sold for nearly 3.000 rupees.

Ten Mecklenburgh horses were also knocked down at an average of 400 rupees.-Englishman, May 27.

The rumour of kidnapping children for the purposes of sacri. fice has turned out a mere story exaggerated by the wonderful imaginative powers of the natives, which, added to their as yet uncontrolled superstitions, has even brought forth the following incubus, viz., that a “gentleman, a doctor" had actually been to the tank, and had seen the slaughtered bodies of one hundred innocents. A notice in Bengalee was this day placarded in several places, to the effect, that after due inquiry being made by the police, it turned out merely the invention of some ma. licious persons.

It appeared very strange that amongst all the complaints of kidnappers, no one had heard of any bereaved parent; any Bengal Niobe, throwing herself before the governor's carriage, nor even appealing to magistrates. The innocents must have fallen from the clouds, or have been dug up from that well. known parsley-bed, where English nurses find them, for they seem to be able to boast of neither father nor mother, and have no parish to take any care of them. - Englishman, May 27.

GOVERNMENT GENERAL ORDERS. AUGMENTATION OF ARTILLERY IN THE THREE PRESIDENCIES.

In pursuance of instructions from the Honourable the Court of Directors, under date 30 July, 1844, the Right Honourable the Governor general in Council is pleased to sanction an addition of European officers to the artillery branch of the armies of the three presidencies, to the extent as follows:

Bengal, 46; Madras, 23; Bombay, 23; to be allotted according to the established organization hereinafter detailed, in the proportions of 4 colonels, 4 lieutenant colonels, 4 majors, 20 captains, 40 lieu. tenants, 20 2d lieutenants-92. Promotions to have date from the 30 July, 1845. In view to the adaptation of the establish. ment of the artillery arm to the above increase, the organization of the artillery of the three presidencies will be as follows:Bengal, horse artillery-3 brigades, 4 troops each; 3 Euro. pean, and I native. Foot artillery, European-6 battalions, of 4 companies each. Native-3 battalions, of 6 companies each.Madras, horse artillery-1 brigade, 6 troops, viz. 4 European, and 2 natives. Foot artillery, European-4 battalions, 4 com. panies each, on the establishments of those in Bengal, viz. 83 non-commissioned officers and gunners each, instead of 106 as at present. Native-1 battalion, of 6 companies.— Bombay, horse artillery, European-1 brigade of 4 troops. Foot artillery, European -2 battalions, 4 companies each. Native-1 battalion, and 4 companies, with an establishment of 2 battalions of officers

ALLOWANCES.

The Right Hon. the Governor general in Council is pleased to resolve, that at stations where two complete corps of the line, irrespective of local troops, are cantoned, the senior officer shall retain the command of his own corps with that of the station, and draw Rupees 120 per mensem, in addition to his regimental command allowance. The absence of detachments on temporary duty or duties of routine or permanent outposts, by which the strength of the said force may become partially reduced, will not invalidate the claim to the station command lowance, above indicated.

N.B. - The above regulation cancels so much of the general orders, No. 231, of 12th August, 1824, as sanctions the allowances of a temporary brigadier for the command of two or more corps of the line at a station.
