THE INDIAN INSURRECTION. One of the greatest treasuries of English wealth has had its security threatened. 'The British Government has, from its earliest commencement in India, ruled by military dictation. The cannon and the sword have been the instruments of cor rection.

In the acquisition of India the force of arms and the extortion of wealth have been the main instruments at work. The Indian wars, unlike other national contests, have become a source of enormons profit to the English Go vernment and those commanders who have been employed to - carry them on.
