Excerpt from An Account of the Origin, Progress, and Consequences: Of the Late Discontents of the Army on the Madras Establishment
The whole of theknowledge, which the pub lie at present possesses, of the late unhappy occurrences on the coast of Coromandel, is derived from a few detached documents, that have been occasionally submitted through the medium of the ordinary news papers. Some official accounts, in respect to the events themselves, and the causes which produced them, might have been expected from the Court of Directors for the affairs of the East India Company, or the Commissioners of the Board of Con troul, if it had not been generally known, that authentic information, even on the most important subjects, very rarely finds its way to this country until public interest has abated, or has devised for itself other means of satisfaction. The circumstance is notorious; the causes of it might be easily developed, if it were our business to inves tigate them; but we shall content our selves, at the present, with barely noticing the fact.
It may be supposed, without any affeca tation of charity, that the constituted authorities, immediately named, have not yet received any details from India, explana tory of recent transactions. A contrary supposition would involve them in the cen sure of reserving communications to them selves, which, if disclosed, might remove the anxiety so universally felt at this moment, directly or relatively, in the bosom of every family in the United King doms.
