Arr. I.-India, its State and Prospects. By EDWARD THORNTON, Ese.

London : Parbury, Allen, & Co. 8vo. 1835. Pp. xx. 354. The volume before us is a condensation of all the most important reflections suggested to a comprehensive mind by a long observation of affairs in India. It is therefore likely to be accurate, and proportionably valuable, in all its parts. It treats of the history, politics, government, agriculture, manufactures, commerce, public works, society, RELIGION AND MORALS, judicature, revenue, and policy of India. Our readers will readily perceive for which of these subjects exclusively we introduce Mr. Thornton to their notice. The religious state of India is so important a question to this country, that it ought to be thoroughly known. From the present conductors of our affairs we expect no religious ameliorations ; but they themselves cannot constrain the influence of opinion, or the current of private benevolence.

The general conversion of India, even on mere human grounds, is assuming the appearance of a very high probability. To estimate the value of this probability, it may be well to take Mr. Thornton's account of the natural state of the Hindoo mind, and then observe the alteration which it has undergone within the present century. Mr. T. represents the Hindoos as sunk in every conceivable species of profligacy; and the effect of this on all the better feelings of our nature, feelings which, it might be thought, nothing could extinguish, may be understood from a few examples. The following are quoted by Mr. Thornton from Bishop Heber :

A traveller falls down sick in the streets of a village (I am mentioning a fact which happened ten days ago ;) nobody knows what caste he is of, therefore nobody goes near him, lest they should become polluted; he wastes to death before the eyes of a whole community, unless the jackals take courage from his helpless state to finish him a little sooner; and perhaps, as happened in the case to which I allude, the children are allowed to pelt him with stones and mud.


[ocr errors]

The man of whom I am speaking was found in this state, and taken care of by a passing European; but if he had died, his skeleton would have lain in the streets till the vultures carried it away, or the magistrates ordered it to be thrown into the river.-Pp. 130, 131.

A friend of mine, some months ago, found a miserable wretch, a groom out of employ, who had crept, sick of a dysentery, into his court-yard. He had there remained in a corner, on the pavement, two days and nights. Perhaps twenty servants had been eating their meals daily within six yards of him, yet none had relieved him, none had so much as carried him into the shelter of one of the out-houses, nor had any taken the trouble to tell their master. When reproved for this, the answer was, “ He was not our kinsman.” “ Whose business was it ?” “How did we know that Sabib would like to be troubled ?"Pp. 131, 132.

The next is from Mr. Grant, on society in India.

In the scarcity of grain which prevailed about Calcutta in the year 1788, a gentleman, then high, now still higher in office there, ordered his servants to buy any children that might be brought for sale (for in times of dearth Hindoo parents frequently sell their offspring,) and to tell their mothers, that when the scarcity should be over, they might come again and receive their children back. Of about twenty thus humanely preserved, most of whom were females, only three were ever inquired for by their mothers. The scarcity was neither extreme nor long. The unnatural parents cannot be supposed to have perished from want, for each received money for her child, and by the liberal contribution of the inhabitants of Calcutta, and chiefly of the Europeans, rice was distributed daily to multitudes at various stations about the city. And yet, notwithstanding this facility of obtaining food, a woman was at that time seen to throw away her infant child upon the high road.”—Pp. 133, 134.

Mr. T. inquires into the cause of vices which seem as contrary to instinct as to morals.

To what cause, then, shall we attribute that prostration of mind and depravity of heart which have sunk a great people into wretchedness, and rendered them the object of political contempt and of moral abhorrence ? — Pp. 147, 148.

He then replies— The answer is readily obtained—to superstition; to the prevalence of a mighty system of religious imposture, as atrocious as it is extravagant; which, in the same degree that it dishonours the Supreme Being, corrupts and debases his rational creatures; which, upon the most outrageous absurdity engrafts the most abominable vice, and rears a temple to false and filthy deities upon the ruins of human intellect and human virtue. It were criminal to conceal or palliate the real cause of Hindoo degeneracy. It is false religion, and nothing beside.-P. 148.

The conquest of India, though a deep blot upon christian Britain, has had then at least this good consequence—it has weakened the hold of this superstition upon its wretched professors. Though little of the genius of Christianity has been displayed in the subjugation of India, or even in its government until very lately, yet the natives could not fail to perceive that a nation defying their gods had overcome them, and that this "godless" nation, as they must consider us (perhaps too truly) was superior to them in all the arts and conduct of civilized life. This consideration, together with increasing intercourse with Europeans, loosened the foundations of their superstition, independently of the
