THE WORSHIP OF GENERAL NICHOLSON. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 8 November 1861
THE WomasnIP OF GEsNERAL NICHOLSON.-Tlhe Friend of India gives a particular account of the oft repeated story of the worship of General Nicholson, who died at the siege of Delhi, and of the effects of this In leading some of the natives to Christianity: "The fact has not yet been forgotten, first made public in Mr. Raikees Notes on the Revolt, that a brotherhood of faqueers at Hurripore abandoned all forms of Asiatic monachism, and devoted themselves to the worship of Nieholson as a god. It was only in asuch a way that their blinded minds, struggling with a great idea, could body forth the mingled love and reverence which they felt for the man who had inspired them with terror when he fought on the bloody field of Chilianwallash, and who had since gone in and out among them as a father, a protector, ajudge. The subsequent history of the sect is not generally known, and' is full of interest. Nicholson left the district n 1850 for England, and then the sect was founded. They loked to ...
MADAGASCAR. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 8 November 1861
MADAGASCAR. Via Mauritius we have news of the death of the Queen of Madagascar. Ranavolo Manjaka (says the Commercial Gazette) has occupied the throne of the Havas since the death of Radama in 1828. During this long reign she has driven almost every European from that island ; she has put to death the native Christians, and prevented the exercise of Christianity; she has restricted commerce to two or three ports, and prevented intercourse with the interior, fearing that the admittance of Europeans would weaken her authority, and eventually annul it altogether. The Press of Reunion (adds that journal) calls on the French Government to takeimmediate measures to place Madagascar under the protectorate of France. No sooner was the intelligence of the death of tlrt Queen received at Reunion than Mr. Itontaunnay left for Tamatave in the steamer Mnsca reignes. This enterprising merchant who possesses the esteem and respect of his fellow-countrymen, has founded several establishments at Mad...
