Several Articles communicated from Bengal and Bombay-a Letter from Madras-an Article on Courts of Justice, from the Cape -and a Letter from a Retired Surgeon of the East India Company's Army on the Medical Service of Indiaare unavoidably deferred till next month.

We have continued, in our present Number, the plan of giring the information reaching us from the several Presidencies, under the respective heads of the communications themselves. The minor incidents of News to be gleaned from the Indian Papers, are so scanty and unimportant as to be not worth repeating, especially as the little so to be obtained is now generally given in the Papers of the day, and thereby loses its novelty und interest. That, however, which the Daily Papers do not publish, namely, the Civil and Military Promotions, Births, Marriages, Deaths, and Shipping Intelligence of India, will still have its accustomed space.
