ART. I.-1. Sketches of the Relations subsisting between the British Government in India and the different Native States. By Captain J. SUTHERLAND. 8vo. Calcutta: 1833.

2. Reports and Papers, Political, Geographical, and Commercial, submitted to Government by Sir A. BURNES, Lieutenant LEECH, Dr LORD, and Lieutenant WOOD, employed on Missions in the years 1835-36-37, in Scinde, Affghanistan, and the adjacent Countries. Printed by order of the Government. Folio. Calcutta: 1839.

3. Correspondence relating to Persia and Affghanistan: being Papers laid before Parliament. 8vo. London: 1839.

4. Personal Narrative of a Visit to Ghuzni, Kabul, and Affghanistan, and of a Residence at the Court of Dost Mahomed; with Notices of Runjeet Singh, Khiva, and the Russian Expedition. By G. T. VIGNE, Esq. F.G.S. 8vo. London: 1840. 5. The British Empire in the East. By Count BJÖRNSTJERNA. 8vo. London: 1840.

THE HE period has not yet arrived for forming a conclusive judg ment upon the results of the recent military operations in India. It is questioned by some, whether Shah Shooja be firmly seated upon the throne of Affghanistan; and time alone can prove whether the policy of the Courts of Nepal and Ava will be permanently affected by the brilliant success which attended the whole progress of the expedition beyond the Indus,



and which was crowned by the storming of Ghuzni and Khelat. The immediate result of that success was, of course, to lower the tone of those courts, and to deter them from breaking with a power which had given, in the promptitude and force of the blow which it struck at so vast a distance, another and most signal proof of its ability to maintain its authority. But in the East, the permanence even of the strongest impressions of this nature cannot be calculated on. With very rare exceptions, every Asiatic despot, who is not, like Hyder Ali and Runjeet Singh, the founder of a dynasty

Fortune faber ipse suæ,'

is a mere child, puffed up with the most exaggerated notions of his own power; because his own rabble of soldiery is immediately before his eyes, and he is utterly ignorant of the relative resources of his neighbours, whom he regards with the most profound contempt as long as they are out of sight. Having such parties to deal with, in two quarters at least-and it is to be feared that Runjeet Singh has bequeathed his hard-won kingdom to one of the same class-we must needs speak somewhat doubtfully of the ability of our Indian Government to maintain, for any length of time, that peace to which its triumphant settlement of the affairs of Affghanistan has given such an appearance of stability.

Affairs being in this uncertain condition along the whole line of our frontier from the Sutlege to the Irrawaddy; the Russians having advanced upon Khiva, though only, as it would appear, to be defeated by the climate; that and other circumstances having compelled the Governor-General to canton a considerable force to the west of the Indus; and our disputes with China rendering it necessary to embark troops for that quarter, in order that we may be able to negotiate effectually with the haughty Tartars who govern that enormous empire;-it may truly be affirmed that Anglo-Indian politics never presented features of higher interest, or more worthy of the attention of every intelligent Englishman.

But this is not all. Many of our fellow-countrymen may care little about the friendship or hostility of the barbarous monarchs whose territories border with our Indian possessions; or whether the revenue of those possessions be wasted in unprofitable war, or employed to the best advantage in creating and extending the blessings of peace. But there are numbers who, if once thoroughly aware of their value, would not be so indifferent to openings for commercial enterprise, and to fields where nothing is wanting but the funds and energy of the British capitalist to ensure large and cheap returns of the most valuable products.
