Tb British End India Cupanf.
The litest nJiee3 from I'aropa inform U3 that
Delhi has not yet f:vllen, an-l that the defectum anions
the native troops m Icdii was largely on the increase.
Whatever way Le the Cite of that ancient city, now
tho arsenal of Infill, it certainly is a serious problem
whether (.'reat Britain is not about to lose her Eastern
possessions; an! should this prove to be so, the diatn-
teresxet ani careful reaJer who stanes the means by
which this conquest was achieved the accumulated
wrongs of a century which have at length stirred up
ine toeiie people of the J.at to revenue, must see in
the act, ie deferr&l but certain retribution which
we are taught cairn's sooner or Liter upon nations, as
upon iiwivi-iiiaN, in return for cvi:ne. It is a remark
able? fact, and one which shows how contagious is the
lu-t.for conquest, th:it eaie cf the most influential
Journals of this country have in the face of History
- attempted to .ie;eni the encroachments of England,
and express the hope that this rebellion will be
sf-efrliTy trampled out- - It may not be nninstnictive
at the prttttt moment to give in the brief, and ini-
r.eneci iiiiucer a men a newspaper artu'hi will only
allow, a succinct history of that remarkable company
of merchant princes, wbu starting as Witb'e sunnli-
ants &r mercantile privileges upn th-i coasts of the
Lx-firnI peninsahi of IJiii.Io.stan, have extended and
consouooten their aatliimty with nouev, and with

naninnj wcn oi i.riroj.- entered largely into a
contest f.r the supremacy f f the Asiatic soas, ami the
commeice of the country. In this contest the Portu
gucse, then in the zenith cf their power, were the most
sncccssiul, and ior nearly a quarter of a ccntary
mcnopoliiod the trade without intcrfe rence from any
Earppoia rival. . Subsequently the Lucc'u competed

It was ca the last day of the Sixteenth CVntnry,
that Qneen Elizabeth gnintcj the first charter to tin
Kist India Company, giving them the right of exclu
five trade in the Indian Seas fbr fifteen years, with
promise of renewal. Previous to 1C13, each member
of the association manapcl his affiirs on his own
account, butin that year the capital was consolidate. 1.
As early as the i-eri.! of the Commonwealth, public
opinion became so strong against the Company, prin
cipally in CT-nserjacnce of alleged abuses iii the time
or the Staans, that Cromwell d.5trojed the charter
which had been originally only a royal grant. After
, the restoration of the Uoyal Family, the charter was
renewed by Charles II. Iu lH'JS, Government being
in want of funds, in consideration of a large loan,
incorporated a rival Joint Stock Company, but the
- rivalry proved so detrimental to both companies, and
to the cation at larpe, that a union was effected in
1702, since which time the Company has existed on
iu present basia,
- L p to this time the orstmiittioa and management
of the association had been nierely commercial, but
now throngh the introduction of native soldiers into
the servk.-es of the Company, under the pretext of de
frnilicg their fictorics, the "iuitintion w.s taken in the
grand scheme of conquest and wrong, which has
jctven to the managers of a trading company in Lon
don, a kingdom ten times the size of England, with a
population of upwards of 1. 71,00; l,fXN) of inhabitants,
and which from a counting-room in Lea Jenhall street,
has C.r a century , instead c f engaging in the peace
ful pursuits of trade, engaged in ar and made peace,
and h is dethroned Primes and ruled over Kina-i.
The political power of the English commenced in 1 748
by the cap-'jwst of Dingal. Ambition and avarice
political and mercantile cunning European arms
:nd discipline under the leadership of the able Clive,
who then an humble Lieutenant in the Company's
service, finally won his way to the Peerage, and
iovcrnor-Gencr&lship cf India, proved all-powerful
against the brave but enervated Indian. The first
important act in the drama was the famous battle of
Plassy, in which Clive deposed the rightful King,
Suraja Dwl.t, and elevated in his place by treason
able conspiracy & tizier, ileer Jauer, who having
served the Company's purpose by paying enormous
sums of money, and giving up large portions of Terri
tory, was in his turn driven from his throne by the
English; who elevated his son-in-law, Meer Cossim,
in his stead, and subsequently deposed him also.
Conquest fallowed cmquett, annexation xame after
annexation, until in less than ten yeara the East
India Company were elevated from being refugees in
an insigniheent nm 1 furt at Calcutt i, to the sovereigns
of one of the richest kingdoms in the world, with a
population of y),(MX),0WI Fouls and a revenue of
Z JJ rupees. Next followed in rapid succession
the annexation of the extensive provinces in the
northwest of India, extorted from the weakness of the
King of Oude, with a territory of 32,0X square
miles, and a population of 13,O),0ik).
Already, however, the magnitude of the Indian
Empire a:i 1 the inability of the Company to properly
govern it, nttraeted the jealousy of the Government.
In Jane, 1773, the Legislature altered the Constitu
tion of the AsPTciation, and vested ia the CiDwn the
supcrviskn it h w since excreted. A Governor Gen
eral was appointed by the directors, but subject to
. the approval of the King, while a Supreme Court of
Judicature was established at Calcutta with Judges
selected 1 y the Crown.
The periol from 1772 to 178-' is memorable as the
term during, which -Warren Hastings administered
tha government, and extended with unscrupulous
hand the territory and resources of the Company.
I hirgL-!, upon his return to Europe, with tyranny,
rxt-.itinu, anil corruption with infamous outrages
through his agents, upon innocent pei.pleby torturing
Jliem witii hunger, stripes and imprisonment with
outrages un female as a means of extorting their
jewrbj or tlieir wealth with the extermination of the
liohlll w by nrc and sword, and with devastating the
provinces tf Oude and IJenares his famous impeach-
. kit at is e!l known t the popular mind. Although
aeuiitel by the House of Peers, the history cf that
trial and it results his become an iueilaceible blot
" ujos the escutcheon of his country, and it is folly not
" to ee that the r-ininistratioa of Warren Hastings
was the seed that has prod need the crop of swords
now drinking tho blood of Englishmen throughout
tiio territory of Bengal. " Perhaps nothiiig iu tbe
ITr.glish t i;gue is more harrowir.g than that fion
of the famous phillipp'c of Burke, which describes
the horrible outrages up n men and women, commit
ted by his agent.'. As tue crowning point to Hist-
. ingi' infamy. Le caused the arrest of his accuser, the
Rajah Nanioo.uar, on a charge of forgery, tried him
: before a jury of Englwhrnen, and hung him amid the
tears' i-.ud lamentations of his countrymen.
; The fall of.Tippuo Saib in 1702, placed another
jarge k;ngd ;u at the disposal of tlie then Governor,
the late luke of Wellington. When that officer had
taken possession of nil the Company then thought fit
to approp riate, it was resolved to form the remainder
into a oauve kingdom, and place upon the throne a
child of six years Id, who should be uqder the charge
of the British Government.
Tie in3uence cf British authority was by, this time
extended over the greater part of India, not only by
conquest, bat by protective treaties. It is apjarcnt,
that the presence of a military force superior to his
- own, mast have reduced every Prince in whose ter
ritory ft Wits stationed, to a state of complete subjec
tion. The next ftp t iken by the Company was to
require that certain db-tricts in each protected State,
chould be assigned for the maintenance of the troops ;
and at length the princes were obliged to resign the
civil administration with all the revenues, and to ac
. cept fFom the Company a i-ension jait sufScien''
"t suppci-t the pomp of royalty. ' Among these pensoi
era to a corporation was the .Mogul himself, the Nabob
" of Bengal, the Niam and the King of Mysore.
. In l?ks. charges were preferred against the Mar
qGis of Wc'.lesly for mismanagement in office, bat
deterred by the want cf eueeess in the case of Hast
ings, the accusation was allowed to sleep. In 1313,
tho charter of the Company expired. Great opposi
tion was manifested m all sides to its renewal, the
influence of the association, however, was sufficient to
procure its extension for twenty years, but the trade
to India was for the firrt time thrown open, the trade
"to China only remaining exclusively to the Company.
In 1S13, tiie Horqnis of Hastings increased the
English rule by the defeat of Holkar and the conquest
of the Mahrattaa. -
In 1S23, the charter being again aboq$ to expire, a
most radical and smguhyr change took place in its
system and management. The charter was enlarged
for 23 years, on condition that the trade to China
should bo thrown open and all the effects and claims
of the Company were transferred to the Crown, in
-. consideration of which the government assumed its
obligations, and undertook to pay to the Company
thereafter an annual sum from the Indian revenue.
" The political governm-nt was, however, continued to
the Company for twenty years, ihe ewciatio abaa
, deninsg tntirely ' Us commercial pursuit. In 1834,
the EngCsh attacked and defeated the Rajah of.Coorg,
nd annexed his dominions. Daring the period from
1837 to 1817, the invasion of Cabul was undertaken,
for which the British bad no vlid pretext, the only
oetensibla ground being alleged Russian intrigues in
" Central Asia.. Ia this war they gained neither re-
- no a, taccef?, or territory; the scheme being, as ia
the atse of Earaj Dawla, to excl Dost Mahommed
" fo- te thrrne, and szt a fr--et in his stead,
" lai . :JtobegrrreTC-l Ij L.'. r'ianta. The
aLr " " Ira ri on of Lord liar!.' v i commenced
ia 1-1-1, W:ts r;iIaed by a r " : Ion the
, -Cll Cizz tl c . : : I, trch
terms of submission enforced as the "British desired,
and the Puniab was finally annexed. Scinde and
Gwalier were also conquered by Napier, and added
to the English possessions. Even as late as 1853 the
insatiate spirit of conquest found vent in a second
Burmese war, in which Lord Dalhousie annexed the
ancient kingdom of Pegu to the Untish dominions.
We have thus given a rapid sketch- of the East
India Comoanr. and the eonouesta which it has made
in India! Great Britain now remains sole matter of
that vast Empire; but whether it will retain it,
remains yet among the mysteries of time.
India is divided into three Presidencies, of Bengal,
Madras and -Bombay. The insurrection which is
now exciting so much interest throughout the world,
has as yet been confined to Bengal; but by the latest
advices, it seems to be extending to the other depart
ments. The Governor General is Governor of the
Presidency of Bengal, and is appointed by the Court
of Directors subject to the pleasure of the Crown.
His Couucil censists of four members, who are also
nominated by the Court, subject to the aiproval of
The East India Company, according to the latest
information, consists of 1700 proprietors, who meet
every quarter, elect Directors, frame the by-laws, and
control the salaries and pensions. In the Court of
Directors thus elected, and board of Control, are vest
ed the sovereignty of India, and they regulate by su
Dreme authority the policy of the Government. The
Chairman and Deputy Chairman roceive a, salary of
i.lW0 and every other Director JLM h
Each Presidency has its separate army, Commander-in-Chief,
and military establishment. The total
armed force in India is aUut U'jO.OOO men. - The
European troops Queen's and Company's-amount,
according to the latest accounts, to l'J.OOO; the native
troops to 2-10,000, highly distinguised for discipline
The history of the world affords nothing more ex
traordinary than the present position of the East
India Company; created exclusively for the purpose
of trade, it has renounced commerce, and exists for
objects never contemplated in its origin. The whole
of its property, territorial and commercial, having
been surrtudered, it is retained as an instrument for
governing the- magnificent dominion, which the
cupidity or avarice of its servants have annexed to
the British Crown.
It is a remarkable fact, most creditable to British
historians, that many of the principal writers on the
subject of India have not hesitated to record their de
testation of the means by which the country was won
and governed. With regard to the present insurrec
tion, the following sentence from the British Colonial
Library, published iu 1833, is most oracular : " Any
violation of the customs which their religion ordains
has ever been attended with serious consequences. If
the native troops lecome averse or unfaithful to those
whose salt they eat, all the European troop3 which
England could raise would be insufficient for the pre
servation of India." . -
