Madras, August 14th, 1877. a Sir-A public appeal has been lately med. h to the people of Great Britain on behalf of the o Presidency. The magnitude of the calamity d that has fallen upon this country is little on- o derstood in England or Ireland. This country v is in every respect so different from any Euro- b pean land that it is almost impossible for a a European, who has not resided for some time d in India, to understand the country or its ce people. I hope [I shall be excused if I endeavor C to convey to the minds of our Catholic breth- ti ren at home some notion of the magnitude of fe the famine, and of the many urgent wants pi which such a calamity brings home to the Bishops and clergy, who witness its ravages ly among our Indian population. di In Southern India we have periodical rains lit in the months of June and October, after which di food crops are sown, and are harvested, in si favorable seasons, in September and February. si Whenever the naual rains fail, there isa failure M of crops and consequent distress. If the rains bi fail for a year or wore over any considerable OC area, the distress becomes a famine. to In June, 1876, there was a failure of the rain, tb generally known as the south-west monsoon. ye all over the Madras Presidency, and a conse quent failure of the crops which were expected gc in September following; the October rains, ta which are called the north-east monsoon, hav-. ti ing also failed, there way no harvest in Jaun- fa ary, 1877. The eastern coast of the Madras to Presidency, was visited by a cyclone in May pr last, when a considerable quantity of rain fell or all along the coast and from fifty to a hundred oh miles towards the west. Immediately after wi the fall of rain inl May the poor people worked di with a will to put in crops, which trey hoped in, to reap in the current month of August; but he owing to the failure of rains in June and July an last, the crops sown in May have perished. po There is now no hope of any crop being har- so vested before January or February, 1878 ; nor Mi will there be any then, unless we are favored as with periodical ;ains in October next. The op result of the failure of rain isa failure of food we crops and consequent starvation and suffering Pr to the people. The reult at present is a act famine in the land more severe than any on f record, even in this land of famines. A partial als failure of rains and of crops is not unusual in nal India. But I believe we have no instance, at is least in modern times, of any famine affecting cot so large a population, scattered over so great nit an area. The whole of the Presidency of Mad. vol raes, excepting the three, or perhaps four, ant Northern districts and the districte of Malabar the and South Canara to the south, has yielded no wil food for its people since Jonnary, 1876; and in Ca 1875 the crope were unusually light. We have the in the Madras Presidency 20.000.000 of people for scattered over an area of 77,000 square miles see depending on imported food for their existence left since November last; and they must depend I upon the same precarious supplies till the Ap month of January, 1878 Add to this the the province of Mysore-au area of 30,000 square pro miles with a population of 3500,000 souls-in po which the distress is no less severe than in the of Madras Presidency. The famine area extends obe also to the country of Hyderbad and portions in I of the Bombay Presidency. A glanee at these tor; figures is sufficient to show the terrible crisis itet through which the country tis passing. It is a gre gigantic work to import food from Burmah the or Calcutta and to distribute it to so many per millions scattered over so large an area. So for critical is our position that in the opinion of sha the Governor of Madras, who had all available ma: information before him, there-was only a you week's supply of food in the country in July last. Since then increasedsupplies have been received. Bat whether toe supplies of food will continue equal to the demand until Janu- 3 ary next, is a question which causes the gravest anxiety to every one interested tu the TUl country. The price of foud grain rose to an unnuroal figure as soon as it was known that the rains of last October had failed. They are more than double what they were during the Ben gal famine of 1874. They have risen so of that our market rates are now equivalent try to the quartern loaf in England being the increased in price from sixpence to two tak shillings and six pence. The distress of the bee people can only be understood by those who Sta have witnessed their sufferings. Government Cal has acted nobly during this trying emergency. wel All that could be done by Government to save is n the people from perishing of hunger has been done. No expenditure of money or labor has con been spared. The servants of Government tain have devoted themselves to the work of saving kee the people with energy, zeal, and perseverance the beyond all praise. But no human power is grei able to avert the fatal oonsequeances of a fail- indi ore of the ordinary food of 20.000.000 of people scattered over an area of 77,000 equare miles. At the close of Joly aIst half a million of the g people had already perished of starvation or If t sickness, the result of starvation. And God exp only knows how many are to perish of famine era and its consequent pestilence before the next whe barvest in January, 1878. The total number sort of deaths in the Presidency for fire years past coo as 215.177, and the number of deaths during tha he first seven months of this year, from anuary to July, was 519.201. Of the entire g opulation one million and three quarters are tea upported by Government, of whom 6,000,000 and re on gratuitous relief,being fed in relief camps not r gettrng money payments. One million and anni hree quarters (1,750.000) are entirely depen- and -nt upon State aid for support, and the num- eign er is daily increasing and must continue to one norease for the next tive or six months. The Ob 'tire Vicariate Apoetolio of Madras, covering n area of 28 0)00 equare miles, with a popula one on of S millions, of whom 50,000 are Catho- trav ca, is suffering from the famine; and in Lar hree dietrictr, Bellary, Cnddapsh and Kor. uni ool, the sefferings of the people have been for ore severe than anywhere else. In Kurnool row rnd Iellary 27 per cent. of the population de- has ends on Government relief; in Goddsphab 16 er cent., and in Chinglepnt near Madras the o distress is equally great. In the town of Madras alone no less than 37, with persons are in receipt of Government re- ai lief; of whom about 12,000 are fed in relief rath campe. Notwithstanding all the care and at- and f, tontlon on the part of the medical officers ii charge of those camps as many as 5,111 personl have died during the past seven months. Thi poor people are so reduced by Inosuffiioent 0, unwholesome food before they enter the relie: camps that the efforts of aciecce to restore them generally prove a failure The famine is daily increasing In severity Those who had somle little resources to grate or money are being gradually reduced to s state of pauperism. 'i he reserves of grain art exhausted, and the little property possessed, it the shape of money or utensils, has been a ,l to purchase food ; and the consequence is thate many who hoped to be able to tide over the famine season without the aid of Government find their nleans all exhbasted, and are com pelled to seek State relief. One of the worst results of the famine is the wholesale lose of working cattle, which have perished in thou. sands for want of fodder. In travelling through the country you can soarcely seea well thatched house, the straw having been every where stripped off for food for the fam ishing cattle. Already men are employed in the place of cattle to work the plough and to haul carts for the transport of grain to remote districts in the interior. And when-the tamine comes to an end, no one can see bow cunltiva-. tion is to be resumed on asoconunt of the scarcity of cattle. The losa to my poor Cath ol-o people is greater than I can realize. In the Bellary'and Kuorool districts, where. the Sa rethare were several Catholio congregations, numbering in the aggregate over 4 000 souls, who belonged to a respectable class in IHindoo society. They are all Soodra cultivators, corresponding with the small farmer olass in Ireland. They are all of the Telagoo race, and have been able . hitherto to maintain themselves comfortably. Their condition at present is wretched. Un willing to seek Government aid they have sold everything to buy food; their cattle a have for the most part perished, and from a a condition of comparative comfort they, have lmeme bsolute pan ers. In the Chin le t district, about thirty-two miles rom the town of Madras, there are several Christian Soudra villages, aggregating over 56000 souls, who belong to the same class as those in Bellara a and Kurnool, and who like them are now re doued to absolute poverty from a condition of comparative comfort. How all these poor Catholics will live till January next, and, if they do live, how they are to resume their former position is to me a most serious and perplexing problem. Out of all these calamities some good is like ly to result for religion. There is to the Hin doo population a movement in favor of Catho licity such as has not been witnessed since the days of St. Francis Xavier. The French mis. sionaries of the Congregation of Foreign Mie sions in the Viceriate immediately Sooth of Madras have during the past twelve months baptised some 15000 adults, in addition to 3, 000 famine orphans. Though we are not able to reckon our converts in Madras by thousands, the number is five times as large as in any year since the establishment of tie mission. Another way in which the Church draws good out of the calamities of the year is by taking charge of the maintenance and educa tion of the numberless orphans left by the famine. But considerable foods are required to enable the Catholic clergy to turn the present calamity into a blessinug The famine orphans cannot be fed nor can the many Cate chumens who seek instruction be maintained without money. The Vicar Apostolio of Pon dicherry, who has the consolation of number ing his converts by thousands, tells me that he has already spent in feeding neophytes and orphans 60,000 rupees (A6.000). He is poor, like all the Indian Bishops, but France, so noted for its generous support of the Foreign Missions, has supplied him with the means of using for the good of the Church the present opportunity. Finding his founds exhausted he was most reluctantly compelled to instruct his Priests not to incur any further expense on account of orphans or Catechumens. Catholics share in common with all other classes the benevolent care of the truly pater nal Government under which we live. But it is not unreasonable to hope that, when our condition is made known to Catholic commu nities at home, the sympathies of some bene volent persons will be enlisted in our behalf ; and that, in addition to their subscriptions to the General India Famine Fund, some means ( will be furnished to help us to converse the Catholio congregations scattered here and there over this Pagan land, and to maintain for a time the numerous Catechumens who seek instruction and the many orphans who are left destitute by the famine. I may, in conolusion, state that the Vicariate Apostolic of Mysore served by the Priests of i the Congregation of Foreign Missions, with a I prose population of 3 500,000, and a Catholic population 26 000, as well as a large part of the Vicariate Apostolic of Pondi cherry, with a Catholic population of 113 000 in British territory and 27,000 in French terri- e tory, suffer as much as Madras. The Vicar iates Apostolic of Coimbatore and Madura are n great sufferers, though in a less degree than t those above mentioned. If any charitable I persons be so good as to entrust funds to me i for any or all of the above-named districts, I shall be happy to distribute the money as I may be instructed. I remain, my dear Sir, yours very sincerely, t 8. FZNNULLY, Bp. Vic. Ap. Madras. THE EXTENSION OF TEJ CULTURE. TUERE MAY BE MILLIONS IN IT FOR TIIE t SUt;TII. A (Scientitfic American.) For a number of years the Department > of Agriculture at Washington has been c; trying, without much success, to induce c the citizens of our warmer States to under- a take the cultivation of tea. The plant has a been suocessfully grown in a number of rt States. In many parts of the South and in a California, the tea plant thrives quite as well as in its native country. In fact, there c is no reason to doubt the capacity of the . country to produce the tea required, cer- Ii tainly for home consumption, and thus a keep at home the millions annually paid to 0 he tea-growers of China and Japan. The great obstacle to this extenlsion of home d iodnestry appears to be the prevalent im- it pression that, to be successful, tea-grow- - lug must be carried on in large plantations. o f that were true it would be hopelees to expect ever to compete with the tea grow- at ere of China, Japan, and other countries, a where labor is plentiful and cheap. That t ort of tea-growing is barred out of this i country by the high price of labor. But t that does not or need not prevent our raie- d ng a large, ff not the larger, part of the tea we use. Even in China it ia the wide i nd general distribution of the tea plant, not its wholesale culture, that makes the unoual orop so large. The two hundred m and fifty million pounds a year sent to for sign countries is probably not more than r one-tenth the amount produced; yet the r anbordinate part alloted to tea-growing is i one of the most striking facts noticed by a ravelers in the tea-producing districts.e Large plantations are few, and six or seven th undred weight is a large annual average er or an individual farm. But, while few to row tea on a large scale, every one who o as a garden has a few tea trees in the orner of it. In this way millions of trees o to make up the bulk of the tea crop ithout materially affecting the general gricuttural industry of the country. It is i -ther a domestic industry left to women on nmd dbildren that an integral part of sid in agriculnture; and though of late years t4 as plantations are increasing in number an 7e importance, no specific enumeration is yo or made of tea lands in the revenue retort reof te taxable lands of the empire In lib manner, by the general raising of a fe, shbrub for domestic use by families ownin in garden plots, a large portion of the fift a million pounds of tea annually consume re in this country might easily be grown o In the spot without perceptibly interferiol Id with present garden products or househol, t industries. The recent rapid extension of tea-grow 2. log in Japan, Java, British India, ant *s elsewhere is evidence that there is nothruo ,f in Chinese soil, climate, or industrial con i- ditions to sacore to that country the min g opoly of tea growing. In Japan tea is cul a tivated as far north as the 3ch parallel u the most favorable region lying betweoe Sthe parallels of 30 deg. ar.d 35 deg. nortl latitude; while the cultivation is mrue e successful between the 21st and 33 deg parallels, thoughl the plant thrives almosl anywhere up to the 45 deg. north latitude SThe Japanese crop has nearly trebled dur i oug the past twelve or fifteen years, anc large areas of newly planted shrubs art 0 rapidly coming into hearing. ~ Next in rank-asa -ea-produ-countr is Java. Since 1860 the industry has ad vanced so rapidly that the annual crop is a now about half that of Japan. The plast a tattons are most successful on the moon tain slopes from three to five thousand feel above the sea; and the crop is said to pay better than ouies. Tea growing has also begun lately in the British Straits Settle ments with promising results. The most rapid recent development of the industry, however, has occurred in rit is India a, partioularly in Assam. The first sample of Assam tea was sent to mar ket in 1843; now there are upwards of 100,000 acres of tea plantations in Assam, yielding nineteen or twenty million pounds a year. In Bengal, Madras, the northwest provinces, and the Punjab, the industry is rapidly spreading and the prospect good. The crop of 1875 6 was estimated at 29,000,000 pounds-thus giving India the lead of Japan. The mest of the India tea goes to England, where it is much liked. In Ceylon also, tea culture has advanced very rapidly of late. In Brazil, it has been grown successfully in several provin ces; but for home consumption Paraguay tea is preferred, and for export, coffee growing i. more profitable. Tea growing is also advancing in Tomkin, Cochin, China, Malacca, the Cores, and several of the is!ands of the Indian Ocean, formerly devoted to coffee; and tfftrts are rusaing to introduce it into Australia and Jamaica. France, Spain, Portugal, Algeria, Italy, Turkey, and the Crimea, all have climates suitable for tea growing; and the saice may be said of Tasmania, tNw Z aland, Mexico, and Central Amerioa. THE A3AERICANV LIFE SAVIER OR SCURF CAR. Nothing of consequence was accomplished to lessen the loss of life occasioned by shipwreck until the year 1848. when Cap tain Douglas Ottinger, of the United States Revenue Marine, presented to the world his "life car." No sooner was the invention introduced than the American Government acknowledged its fitness for the purpose intended, and ordered the life saving sta tions along the Atlantic. coast each to be provided with one of these care. Although so useful, the car is simplicity itself, and its construction such that it may easily be understood. It is made of gal vanized sheet iron. In length it is about nine feet and in breadth three and a half. Outwardly it looks much as we would imagine one of our common c!inker-built boats to appear if it had a slightly curved cover placed upon it. Instead of havigg a stern and stem, the ends are alike, both terminating in a point. Nearly in the centre of the top is an air chamber, designed for the purpose of righting the car should it turn over. In shape this resembles a hemispheroid, and it is about two and a half feet in length, and ten inches in breadth. Between its end and the further extremity of the car is the entrance. Water is prevented from coming through this by means of a lid securely fastened. Art and the circumference of the car a thick rubber band is placed to protect it from damage in case of contact with hard substances. Above and parallel to this is a rope. It is intended for drowning persons to grasp in order that they may be drawn ashore. The inside of this curious life-preserver is divided into throo separate apartments. These at the ends are merely air chambers, and are both about one and a half feet in length. Between these is located that po:r tion ..f tlhe air doeigned for occupants. Alt,.,u;h this space may seem small, in order to prove res capacity it is only neces eary to etate that it has accommodated a woman and six children, and that three men can get into it without any diionulty. "How can the car be sent to a vessel during a storm, and especially if it be two thirds of a mile away 7" is the question which natu rally arises at this point. It has been done and in the following manner: The smallest cord capable of sustaining the force brought - to bear upon it is fastened to a copper wire which is bent in the form of a spring (to lessen the momentum), and attached to a twenty pound cannon ball. By firing this over a sinking vessel, those on board can ( grasp the cord. With this a small rope is drawn in and so on until finally the car iteelf reaches the vessel. In the meantime, those sending the assistance keep their hold of the car by means of another rope. In this way they can poll it back. If once successful, all further trouble is at an end, because the main difficulty lies in getting Ihe rope to the distressed ship. When this 5 accomplished .both parties can retain their own rope, and thus the car may be Irawn back and forth without delay. By working continually, fifty liveecan be saved n an hour. Thus does the usefulness and simplicity if the car combine to make it one of the nest perfect life savere yet invented. kithough recently introduced it still has a ecord, and a glorious one, as it has already 'eseued over four thoeausand persens from nevitable death. Its celebrity, however, a not bound by two oceans. France, ever in the alert for improvements, soon seized hise, and her accounts of its perfections re exceedingly flattering, and are suflicient o canes America to be justly proud that - no of her sons invented the life car. The human body expands immensely with ge. When eleven young men are seated on o sideof astreet ear, they can easily sit up tlse elmer and mnake room for a pretty gitrl, ut seven of them can menopolise an entire de to the utter exlousion of an old woman. d IURANCE. un FACTORS' AND TRADERS' like INDURANOE COMPANY, S3G............
