MADRAS.
FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.

TO THE EDITOR OF ALLER'S INDIAN MAIL. Sir,- I send, for the information of your friends, an extract of a letter received here from Bellary : “Ramunhully is about five miles west of Soondoor, and thirty miles from Bellary; is a tableland, running from two to half a mile in breadth, and about four to five in length; the top of the hill is nearly level, of beautiful soil, and wooded like an English park. There are the remains of an old fortification extending in several lines for many miles, at least twelve in circumference. There is an abundance of fine spring-water-five springs in particular at different places gush out of the sides of the hill a flow of water as thick as your arm; one is the source of a considerable stream that flows into a large tank some miles down in the plain; a natural tank is also formed by three of the springs on the top of the hill, and its over. flowing is the source of another considerable stream flowing west. The side of the mountain is well wooded with not very large trees, but there is no under jungle; on another range of hills, about six miles off, the jungle is thick--but no apprehension of fever. The height of this table-land is 2,300 feet-of course the difference of temperature is very great. The day the artillery were at Hospet, the thermometer, in a large tent, with every attempt to keep it cool, was 111 deg. ; in a small tent on the hills, at the same time, it was 90 deg. Two officers have each built a cottage, several others are about to do so, and I have no doubt that ere long many will soon spring up; thermometer at night from 64 to 67 deg.- warm clothing is necessary, and the wind is very cold; the ascent up the hill is rather steep." · This salubrious climate is exactly what the people of unhealthy Bellary wanted. I have no doubt that it will in a very short time become a fashionable resort for the invalids roundabout. Why this place was not ere this discovered, we are unable to make out. The thermometer here now is very high, but some few days ago was much higher. Many of the old hands do not recollect when the heat has been so great at Madras.

Yours, &c., Madras, June 10th, 1815.

SCRIBBLER. P.S. “A rumour is going about that the 6th regt. will be ordered for Paulgautcherry when relieved by the regt. that is on its way from China. By-the-bye I must not forget to men. tion a slight mistake that occurred by the B. regt. that fired a feu de joie on the Queen's birth-day. The 84th (H. M.'s Foot) made tlie start, and the 6th N.I., and 21st N I. followed ; instead of firing (along the front rank from right to left, and then up from left to right along the rear rank, they fired both ranks together. Some of the sepoys (I suppose knowing it to be contrary to orders) kept their fire back, and gave pop, pop, here, there, and every where, until all was over. The Marquis was not present; he is laid up.

The Madras U. S. Garette gives particulars of a daring dacoitee committed in the heart of the town of Ellore, at an early hour on the evening of the 8th instant, under the very nose of the native collectors. The gang consisted of about fifty men, armed with swords, matchlocks, and spears, and succeeded in carrying off a large booty from the house of a wealthy merchant, without the slightest attempt at hinderance or molestation on the part of the police. - Overland Atheneum.

The Madras Spectator states that Mr. Minchin, the Master in Equity of the Supreme Court, has tendered his resignation of that office to the judges. It is believed that the vacancy thus created will be filled by Mr. Teed. -Overland Athenæum.

Major-gen. J. Aitchison, who arrived per steamer Hindostan, is to assume command of the Mysore division of the army. Major-gen. Allan will repair to Cannanore, to command Malabar and Canara, and Major-gen. Lovell will resume the command of the hussars.-- Overland Atheneum.

The Madras Circulator states, that a silver medal was presented by the boys of the Military Orphan Asylum to the Rev. H. Cotterill, the superintendent, previous to his departure to Europe. The medal was purchased by subscriptions among the orphans exclusively, some of them being allowed a trifle monthly as pocket-money--Overland Athenæum.

MISCELLANEOUS. The Madras Record states that the Marquis of Tweeddale is suffering severely from the ear-ache, and that in consequence the guests at the Government House on Monday last were politely given to understand by the aide-de-camp that the festive noises proceeding from the ball-room were by no means pleasant to their noble host, a hint that was quickly taken, the company dispersing immediately after supper.- Overland Athenæum.

H. M. ship Foz, bearing the flag of Commodore Sir Henry W. Blackwood, Bart., anchored in the Madras roads on the morning of Friday, May 30th, and the Commodore disembarked in the afternoon under a salute from the garrison. - Overland Athenæum.

The Rev. Mr. Burford, whose appointment to the chaplaincy of Vepery was gazetted last evening, died from apoplexy, before the paper was issued from the press; he had only arrived in India three days ago. - Overland Athenæum.

The steamer Hindostan Jeft our roads on Monday, June 2nd, at 2 p.m. in prosecution of her voyage to Calcutta, taking with her Lieutenant-Colonel Alexander, Adjutant-General of the Nadras

army. A ball and supper was given at Government House on the 26th of May, to celebrate the anniversary of her Majesty's birthday. The entertainment was not so well attended as usual, owing to the indisposition of the Marquis of Tweeddale, who in consequence was not present.

Tbe Madras United Service Gazette states that Captain Meadowes Taylor, who has been in charge of the Sholapore district for a considerable time, has been removed, on the ground that he has overturned the measures of his predecessor, Captain Gresley, and that Mr. Lushington, of the Bengal civil service, has been appointed to the charge as commissioner or political
