MAY, 1826.

Original Communications,

&c. &c. &c.

THE EAST-INDIANS, OR INDO-BRITONS. It is gratifying to find that the political condition of the progeny of British „parents, born in India, whom we designate by these terms for want of better,* is beginning to attract the attention of Government. A Bill has been introduced into Parliament to admit this class to serve on juries; and the President of the Board of Controul is reported to have intimated that this measure was the commencement of a course of policy with regard to these persons, whereby larger political power would be entrusted to them.

The Bill referred to, which is entitled " A Bill to regulate the Appointment of Juries in the East-Indies," is, in substance, as follows:-IC being expedient that the right and duty of serving on juries' within the limits of the local jurisdictions of the several suprenie courts at Calcutta, Madras, and Bombáy should be further extended, all good and sufficient persons resident within the limits of the several towns of Calcutta, Madras, and Bombay, and not being subject to any foreign state, shall (according to such rules as shall be fixed by the respective courts of judicature, with respect to the qualification, appointment, form of summoning, challenging, and service of such jurors, certified by the judges of those courts to the President of the Board of Controul, to be laid before his Majesty, for his royal approbation, correction, or refusal) be deemed capable of serving as jurors on grand or petit juries, and upon all other inquests, and shall be liable to be summoned accordingly: provided that grand juries in all cases, and all juries for the trial of persons professing

the Much dispute prevails as to the proper designation of this class; and it is perhaps impossible to find one suited to the English language (which wants the flexibility of the Greek in this respect) altogetħer free from objection. Eurasians, Indo-Britons, and Half-caste, are terms which have been employed and defended by different writers. The latter appears to be singularly ill-chosen and improper. The

term “ East-Indian," which has been adopted by the club formed by this class at Calcutta, is too general, { 'since it does not discriminate the progeny of a British parent from the whole population of India, unless

the term “Hindus " be confined exclusively to the latter; a term which, in strictness, comprehends those only who profess thé Brahminical religion.
