The following letter from Lood Ellenborough to Capinin Napier, will show his lordship's opinion of

Charles Napier's conduct in India. -

Boutham, September 27th, 1848. My dear Captain Napier,-I received this morn for your letter about a speech made by Me Bullivan against Sir Charles Napier's conduct in Boinde, You are mienko in supposing that I have read the speech saw there had boon some discussion at the Court of Proprietats, apparently got up by Mr S?llivan, for the purpose of making a long episch ; b?l the discussions got up cousisually at that court are so holly devoid of importades, except in the eyes of ti? speakers, that I did not think it worth while to: and what was said.

It is rely quite unnecessary for me to declare in words my entire approbation of Sir Charles Napier conduct. I showed what I thought of it by my sets while I was Governor-General, and I will wi that I think the mericas Bir Chatire Napier bus performed since I left Indie have been even quaR?NE your, a regiment, the inciquin of the Bath, the tasks | them those I undowvoured, but was unable adequately of this Company nod Parliamtiu, and a Pornge foto emend.

Thus the sum of upwards of ?10,000 sterling per annum is ale orbed by these individuals, very littlo of whica need be expanded. In the first place it is perfectly ridiculous that a gene- ral officer should be here at all. looking the amount of force. The Senior Military Officer, with a table allowance for entertainment, would be sufficient for every purpose of command.

The various staff officers drawing 500 or 000 Rupees monthly, in addition to their ordinary pay and allowances, are absolutely worse than useless, and a clog and tremuel upon the execution of the public service. These gentio inen have positively no duties of their own to perform, and therefore, to be doing something, murt of necessity interfere in the duty of others. The public departments are amply provided for by the government at home, and this interfes ronce, whilst it is wholly unnecessary and imo- galar, tends to increase useless correspondance, by raising up an intermediate channel of coin- munication loading to no result, and producing many other evils, which no where else aziai. The sooner then these officers (not one of whom is beyond the rank of captain, sul f no great standing even in that rank) return to their duties in the marching regiments to which they belong, the better will it be, on every cou- sideration, for the public service.

With respect to the office of Deputy Judge Advocate General, it is unusual we believe to retain such an officer in permanent pay; it is

The Staff salaries to the Engineer Officers we do not comprebend. We are not aware why they should draw Staff salaries here more than at other places, the enormous amount also leads as to suspect there is something wrong hero.

The scale upon which we conceive the Staff appointments at this place should be modelled, which we are confident from our observations elsewhere, would adequately meet ibe want of the Military service, and which we would desire to see substituted for the foregoing, is a follows.

THE FRIEND OF CHINA AND HONGKONG GAZETTE.

CALCUTTA.

The result of the first opium sale, and the means by which it was for a time postponed.

is fully discussed in the extracte we make from Indhin papers, to which we refer our Readers. To check attempts at a monopoly, and the strong propensity of the nativo Merchante to gamble with the drug, the Indian government require to establish more stringent regulations for their public sales. We have heard it sug- gested, that in addition to a heavy deposit im mediately on the fall of the hammer, all bids should be made through a responsible Broker This would prevent such absurd seenes as was witnessed on the first day of sale when opium was run up to ?13,000 a chest by advances of ?1 a bid, 'in consequence of which, the salo was postponed, it being dark before the first kA could be knocked down,

The Bragana arrived on the 23rd at 11 a. m. with the October and November mails. She made a very excellent run from Singapore, but It has been known for some time that the though soarcely due, the Agent for the Corsair farmers of the opium monopoly were losing despatched her for Canton at 9 o'clock of the money; their sales gradually decreasing as the thorning on which the Braganza arrived, in native trading vessels diminish in number. The consequence of which, it is to be feared that same parties who held the monopoly last year, many of the Canton Residents will be disapare in possession of it at a reduced rent, and pointed at not receiving their letters, and this the Tact of their wishing to throw up their bar- the more especially that the Coranir after loaving gain, is very clear proof that our trifling trade Hongkong for the provincial city on the alter is getting loss, and that the Monopolists are out poon of the 25th, with a large portion of the|| of pocket by the opium farm. mail on board, was obliged to return to the harbour, her machinery baving received some damage. The Agent immediately despatched the letter bags by a sailing bost?but it is doubtful whether they will be in Canton before the 57th, loving parties a very limited time to prepare their correspondence for the mail that closes here on the 20th,

The marriage of the Duke de Montpensier to the Infants of Spain continues to be the topic of discussion in the French and English papers, and has in a great degree destroyed that good feeling which of late years has boon so co spicuous between the two govemment. The wily Monarch of the French has duped his friends in England, and to add to the injury, it is said that, though it is unusual for crowned heads personally to interfere in mich matters. yet on the visit which Queen Victoria made io Louis Phillipe at Eu, an understanding was come to regarding the marriage of the Infants, and that His Majesty has not kept faith with her, An uaduc importance has been given to this marriage, as it is not pro- bable that the progeny of the Duke de Mont pensier will ever inher? the crown of Spain, and if they do, it is not shown that it will in any degree injure British interests..

A reduction of the duty on Tea engages the attention of the manufacturing and mercantile community, and has caused a speculative de- mand, particularly for low Congous. It is ovi dent that there is not the slightest chanco of any modification during the present soon, and it is to be feared that injudicious Specula: tory will suffor severely, though we do not think that the rise which has taken place in consequence of their rashness, will induce Mer chants in this quarter to purchase at higher rates than now rule in Canton. We have read letters from Merchants, long and ex.

sensively engaged in the tea trade, and they

give it as theirdecided opinion, that no immedi.

ate reduction will be made. They state that the

revenue is in a flourishing condition, but the Lamino in Ireland, and the incream in our ne- val and military forces, press so heavily upon the exchequer, that Ministers this session will scarcely venture to disturb the present financial sarangements.

The Brefet we publish in full, as well as a variety of commercial information the other items of European news we have already laid before our readers in the Straits Times ostra of the 19th of January, and extracts from the *Icading London papers wo reserve for future

The wily Monarch of the French has duped his friends in England, and to add to the injury, it | le said that, though it is unusual for crowned heads personally to interfere in such matters, you on the visit which Queen Victoria made to Louis Phillips at Eu, an understanding was come to regarding the marriage of the Infante, and that His Majesty has not kept faith with her, An undue importance has been given to this marriage, as it is uol prou bable that the progeny of the Duke de Mont poosier will ever inherit the crown of Spain, and if they do, it is not showg that it will in any degree injure British interests..

A reduction of the duty on Tea engages the attention of the manufacturing and mercantile community, and has caused a speculative de- mand, particularly for low Congous. It is evi- dent that there is not the slightest chance of any modification during the present stasjon, and it is to be feared that injudicious Specula. tors will suffer severely, though we do not think that the rise which has taken place in consequence of their rashness, will induce Mer chants in this quarter to purchase at higher rates than now rule in Canton. We have read letters from Merchants, long and ex- sensively engaged in the tea trade, and they give it as theirdecided opinion, that no immedi. ate reduction will be made. They stato that the Jevenue is in a flourishing condition, but the famine in Ireland, and the increase in our on- val and military forces, press so heavily upon the exchequer, that Ministers this session will scarosly venture to disturb the present financial swangements.

The capitulation of Monterey 4a frontier sown in Mexico) after so obstinato defence of shree days, occupies a large portion of the pa pers. As usual, the Amenean troops behaved well, and the defence made by the Mexicans has established their reputation for courage, a qualification in which we fever thought them deficient. I may be questioned whether Go- neral Taylor has gained any thing in the cap- Sure of Monterey. By the torms of capitula

, the Mexican troops, in number close upon 1,000 were allowed to march out with their arms and Geki astillery, under a salute from the gans of the fort. I was expected that they would form a junction with Santa Anna's army at the pan of Bantilla within a few days march of Monterey.

London, 21st November, 1848.

A considerable improvement has at length taken place in the tone of the Ten market, and during the last few weeks speculative purchase have been effected in common Congues, comprising all those ostering under 16d per lb., and it is probable these operations would have reached a large extent bud Holders been willing to realins at market rater ; but as the stock in mot vory large, and only a small portion of it in the bands of the Trade, the Im. porters have held firmly, and, in many instances, Wabdraws their common Tea from the market, under the impression that higher prices must be given to meet the large currunt demand. This view has provod in be well founded, an advance of id to ad per lb having been established in common Congous, the demand for which-?as been very ani- mated during the last fawr, woeks Looking at the present retu? prices of Ten, we think there is no ressen to apprehend that the purchases of the Trade

Price Current BowNAT, December 15th, 1846.-The duine which prevailed in our Import Market at the close of our last issue, has continued unabated throughout the fortnight-The uncontainty as to the result of the Calcutta Opin aile, which then interrupted all legitimate businem, can scarcely yet he said to be removed. The angexol cxtract from the Cal- cutta Star of December kat, will shew the nature of the measures adeptal by the "sellare for account" in the Operm time bargains, to defeat the operations of their opponents and arrest the progress of the Government Sela.

THE MARKET.

With a very plentiful stock of staple imports, and a demand comparatively inactive, prices evince not the slightest tendency to improvement. On the con 'cary, prices during the past month have been reced- ing, and as compared with the state of our market about the beginning of the year, we notice an evi. dent decline of nearly 20 per cent. This fall in price is attributable to the very beavy continued im. ports into Singapure exceeding the declining do mand in that market, and the supplies that have been sent up here largely for sale within the pass six months. This has necessarily affected our car- kel very severely, as, independently of Bingapore, there is a brisk dirept trade from England at all sonuicient to meet the demand here. Bo long at stocks in China, as well as Singapore, continen so large as at present, a reaction from thence must be felt before any improvement beed be hoped for. We may soune that the prices of opium, ?n, nad rice have for some months been much lower in price here than in Singapore, thus including the Chinese (who in such cars are reckless in their trading) to lavest there in piece goods for the sake of instituting fole here for investment in thess articles of pro duon. The Jessie Mitchell, arrived on the 90tbuk.

Our advice from the provincial city are very unsatisfactory. The position of the foreign Residents becomes worse daily; and it in to be foured that the Chinese officials do not endos your to check the inso. | Janes of the mob. Before the treaty, Foreigners could walk through the streets to the back of the || factories with perfect safety, and short excursions were made on the opposite side of the river without running the risk of being peked with stones. Now that we have a terety, things are changed. It has become dangerous to appear outride the factory gates, and our portion is in every respect worse than it was

before the war.

The following extract from a private letter giver a correct exposition of the liberty ?joyed by the Foreign dende o Colon:-

-The affects of the subserviency of our Authoritas ?n

thair agulation with the local Currant at Canton are manciestly obvious to the curtainment which daily becomes more and more visible, of the few privileges we enjoy in that miserable place of sojourn. The temple at Hasan, nearly opporize the Factories, which two your ago go one ever feared so sialt, even with ladies, now could not be approached without the almost certainty of a pelting and orber insalis. The wreets in the rest of the Factoriga, in which we coull occasionally sanater away

ont looking at curiosities, dare vesture into now the walls on the river side just bayand the factoring, where formerly enjoyed air and exerciss, can seldom be resorted to now without insult, and are abandoned by Foreigners. Our Conmls in China are degraded into the position of Chinese Revenus Oflicem, and (doubtless noting under" Instructions) in too many lestances mistake the object of their appointment by M?enillying themselves with China interneta, Instead of acting

for the advantage of their Conry, and thaisting upon an alberence to the privileges which the Treaty was intended to confer upos

The Mones

Four Foreigners intending to visit the temple of long. avity overlooking the City, and which I have visited company with an Ungitah lady, without molestation, were pelled the other day, and some received injuries from the Childers, Brig of War is at Whampos, but for all the good she could do i

*The mob are only deterred from misallef by the fear of the arms of the Merchants, whose prooedings July last. have certainly had the salutary efserofcoring the Tagabonis,"

a set of wear.

The British Merchants have established a Cham ber of Commerce from which it is anticipated that much good will rertit, as it will be a it channel for the transmission of documents emanating from the community, either as the local goremmeni of Hong: koor, or to the home Government. The present mail will convey petitions to both houses of parlia ment. setting forth the grigrances of the British resi- deas, and praying for redress. We have repeatedly arged upon our countrymen in this quarter, the necessity of availing themselves of the privilege of petitioning the Imperial Legislature, as from expe- rience, we are convinced that there is no gher way of obtaining redress.

Our correspondent, with greu justice, complains of the continued eglect to grant them the protection of 1 is true, that H. M Brig Childers in staticnal at Whampoa (twelve miles from Cantum) but she might just a well be in Hongkong bay Tamults among the Chinese are always ruddan, and je in ensential that at all times the inhabitants of the Fantaries be prepared to defend themselves. The the presence of t ressel of war would deter the mob from their lawless snacks appears to be the general aplaion of every Foreigner who is soquainted with Canton, (the Governor of Hongkong excepted) and It is with much regret that we learn that Hir John Davis has not obeyed the instructions of Her Ma jesty's Ministers on this subject. It is absurd to that a vessel at Whampoa is a protection to people at Canton, and should His Excellency avail himself of such a subterfugo, we trust it will bo ex- posed in parliament.

Every day I am more and more fully impressed with the error of our present policy and grieva over the misplacement and waste of untional re sources, and of individual energy. But there are too many persoas interested in the present state of things to induce a hope that the expenditure here will be reduced, or that another and better position for our commerce will be sought in Chius. The Governor intends, I understand, to stop here Sine years, by which time it is expected he will here saved at least 30,000, a be does not spend the in terest of his salary a Governor.

Buch, then, is the opium farm, which it seems Governor Davie meene to continue. Its effect has been, without diminishing the consumption of opium in Chios by a single chest, to damage the general trade, by destroying the only market in China not under Chinese influence. 10-along with the licensing system yet to be noticed -- has tended to complete the ruin of Horkong which the Re gistration Aat began, obliging proprietors to allow their shope to remain empty, or let them at depre ciated rents, while there is no reduction in the 62- orbitaat ground rent. And it affords a pretest bir one Chinosen to oppress and plunder another. The income or rent for the sake of which all these evils have been incurred, amownia to the sub of
