MADRAS. On Tuesday, the 20th August, about eleven •'clocki his highness the Nawab Delawer Jung Bahadur (who resides at Chitpore), accompanied by his eldest son the Nawab Soalut Jung, and his grandsou, the late Nawab Moahir Jung's son, with a grand retinue, proceeded from his house to pay a visit of ceremony and respect to his excellency the right honorable the Earl of Moira, at the government house. When his highness's carriage entered tne north area of the government house, he was saluted by the guard, and Immediately after Mr. Molony, acting Persian secretary to government, and three aides-de-camp, descended the grand staircase and proceeded to receive the Nawab and his children, and conveyed them to the presence of the right hon. the governor-general, who advanced from his seat some paces to meet and embrace each of them in his turn, after which ceremony his lordship directed them to be Seated near hinl. His lordship expressed himself in terms suitable to the occasion, which appeared to be highly gratifying to his respectable visitors. Some time after the Nawab and his children had taken their scats, his lordship decorated the Nawab with a rich turban, jewels, and a necklace, ornamented with diamonds, pearls, &c. and ordered the intended khilaut to be laid before his highness. His lordship also presented him with a fine male elephant, sword, target, and a superb nalkce, such as eastern noblemen ride in. When bis highness the Nawab had received these marks of the governor-general's favour and esteem, he appeared highly gratified; a similar ceremony was observed on conferring a rich turban, jewels, and necklace, ornamented with diamonds and pearls, on the Nawab Soulut Jung, who was also presented with a khilaut. His highness's grandson received a pearl tassel with gold hook to his turband; after having been honoured by these flattering marks of the governor-general's favour, his highness signified a desire to return with bis children, which being granted, his lordship gave Ottur and Paun to the Nawab aud his chiloren. On taking leave o( the right honorable the governorgeneral, his highness was handed to the superb ualkeeuy Mr. Molony, and several aides-de-camp, and immediately returned, with his retinue, to his house at Chitpore.

Sept. 10 —On Wednesday last, his excellency the eommander-in-chief paid a visit of congratulation to his highness the Nabob of the Carnalic.atChepauk I'alace, and was received with the accustomed honours. His highness returned the visit at the Ameer Baug on the following day. The usual salutes were fired.

The cost of the building amounted to 40,000 pagodas.

Head Quarter): Choultry Plain, 27th Aug. 1816. 6. 0. By the Commander-in-Chief.-— The Commander-in-Chief adverting to a mistaken idea which appears to exist, that Field Officers holding'Staff Appointments, are entitled to the distinction of two Epaulettes with their Staff Uniforms, Without reference to tlie'particul.ar regulations for uniforms of this sort, is pleased to publish for general information, tb* uniforms established for Staff Officers, are intended to mark the situation they hold on the Staff, and not the rank which they may have in the Army, and it is therefore to be understood, that no deviations from the ruies laid down, can bead* mined, whatever the rank of an Officer may be.

CHINA.' ■»»." The commercial advices received from Macao, (at Madras, Aug. 21) by the Good Success, give a tolerable favourable report of the China markets. Opium had somewhat advanced in price; and is quoted at from one thousand four hundred atrd twenty to one thousand four hundred ami thirty dollars. The accounts, by thb Juliana, which left Macao fourteen Hays before the Good Success, only gave it from one thousand three hundred and. eighty to one thousand four hundred and twenty dollars. A small quantity of Turkey opium had been brought to market, which realized from eight hundred and fifty to nine hundred dollars per pecul.

MAURITIUS. On the 10th Sept. the two brothers of Kadain, king of Ova, accompanied by two of his ministers and several representatives of the principal nations of the coast of Madagascar, were landed from His Majesty's ship Tyne, Captain Curran, who conveyed them to this island. His Excellency the Governor received them under a salute from the batteries, and with all due honours, at the government house as a mark of the high sense he entertained of the confidence with which Madam, the most powerful prince of Madagascar, had consigned the heir apparent of his kingdom and his brother to the protection of the British Government for their education: these young princes, Maroutafique and Rhaovi, are of the age of ten and eleven years, and from their intelligence appear capable of acquiring every requisite principle of morals and religion, as well as a knowledge of those arts and sciences which must essentially contribute to the happiness of the people whom the eldest is destined to govern.

An event of this nature has ever been considered as most desirable by those persons who are best acquainted with the interests of this colony—as contributing essentially to the safety of the different merchants and European inhabitants settled in Madagascar,—and as assuring that friendly communication, on which so much depends for the provisioning of these colonies.

* It may also he considered as one of the primary steps for the advance in civilization of that vast and fertile island, by the Introduction of European arts and industry under such powerful protection there. <Mauritius Gazette.

We have much satisfaction in stating to the colony, the return of Captain Lesage, who arrived on the 16th Sept. after having succes>fully accomplished the object of his mission to the north of Madagascar. The murderers of the government agent and his assistants at LucqUez fled from that part, immediately after having committed the crime, and have in vain sought an asylum witli the neighbouring princes.—Chichipi, the most active author of the assassination, lias been apprehended, tried by the laws of his country and his countrymen, and although nearly related to some of the surrounding chiefs has suffered death, and been gibbetted on the spot where he committed the murder. His two accomplices, "Semi red and Caesar are still fugitives—the who'e of the country is in pursuitof them, and pledge to do equal justice on them when apprehended.

The station of Lucqucz has been resumed by the agent, who is now in firm alliance with all the native princes.-—His influence has been so great as to prevent the naval annual attack upon Aujiuin and

the Comoro's, to obtain a pledge for the definitive relinquishment of that predatory warfare. The territory surrounding Lucquez, and numerous herds of the finest cattle, have been guaranteed to the agent by all the Princes of the North—the first in right of the ancient purchase, the latter, agreeably to their customs, as an atonement for the crime which was committed there.—Mauritius Gazette.

We have with the deepest concern to intimate the occurrence of a most deplorable conflagration at Port Louis, on the 25th and 26th of September last. We have not been able to discover in the Mauritius Gazette any account of its origin, its progress, or extent; but fromthe proclamation of His Excellency R. T. Farquhar, Esq. the Governor and Commander in Chief, it would appear to have taken a most melancholy range, and to have happened at the most critical and inconvenient season. Shelters in cabins and boats, with old clothes, were advertised for the sufferers the next day. We. make an extract from the proclamation of the 1st of October.

"Whereas the late extensive conflagration reduced to ashes the cBief part of this; city—that part inhabited by the most crowded population, containing the greatest part of the commercial property and riches, and especially the mass of provisions and merchandize destined for the consumption of the inhabitants, together with the warehouses, stores, yards, and shops, in which those articles were daily sold, wholesale and retail, thereby cutting off, at the source, whatever gives support and activity to the existence and to the interior and exterior commerce of this island.

"And whereas, in consequence, a great number of families hitherto in affluence and iu independent circumstances, the result of their industry and economy during a long residence in this colony, are thus reduced to extreme indigence, and left without a home. "And whereas in this[island, which is exclusively commercial, and where the properties and interests of all individuals are necessarily interwoven, it is indispensable to take the most expeditious and efficacious means to prevent the total ruin of public credit, both at home and abroad, general bankruptcy, and all its concomitant miseries. "And whereas the distance at which this island is situated from the mother country and the surrounding governments, throws every hope of resource to an indefinite distance, and obliges us iu this moment of urgent necessity to depend solely on ourselves :—Considering the experience of former calamitous junctures in these islands, the near approach of the hurricane season, the unfavourable moiy. soon already set in, and almost the whole crop of Madagascar warehoused in this island being destroyed by the flames.

"And whereas the total failure of the public revenue of this colony, both from the destruction of the great source of internal taxation, and the restrictions of commerce, would throw the whole expense of the adminstration upon the mother country. "And whereas it appears that, the greatest part of those evils maybe averted, or assuaged, by adopting such extraordinary measures as the extraordinary and imperious nature of the conjuncture indispensably requires—by acceding to the universal and anxious desire of the inhabitants, to remove, until the pleasure of His Royal Highness the Prince Regent shall be known, every possible restriction upon their industry ; the restrictions of the 18th May, upon this island, are suspended for the present."

Proclamation of the 26th September (the morning after the fire) ordains, that all judiciary and extrajudicial proceedings should be suspended, even those of promoting influence.

Proclamation of 28th September decrees that; " From the 1st of October next to the 31st December following, no prosecution shall take place, nor any sentence or judgment be pronounced for the payment of any note of hand, negociable bill, bond, or any act of engagement whatsoever which may be already expired, or may expire hereafter; and no judical formalities, protests, or other measures taken by creditors or bearers of such notes of hand, negociable bills, or other acts, shall be necessary to preserve all their rights and privileges, both towards the drawers and those who are bound with them, and towards all debtors or bond, securities, and endorsers.

Proclamation of the 9th October directs, that none of the persons educated at the Colonial College, shall be removed for want of pecuniary means of payment for their education.

The proclamation of the 23d October appoints a Special Committee to ascertain amount of loss and damage. These gentlemen are, Major Barry, President, Captain Dick, Theodore Hook, Esq. Sir Robt. Barclay, Bart. M. Virieux, Proc. Gen. M. Maure, Agent-de-Change, M. Saulnier, Negt. M. Amic, Negt. M. Laurent Barbe, Negt. M. D'Uuienville, Secretaire de la Commission.

We learn, by private intelligence from France, some further particulars. It is stated, that 560 nouses were burnt, and that the loss was estimated at thirty millions of francs.

JAVA.

We are happy to he enabled to publish the following official account of the defeat, of the Rajah of Boui, on the 8th,

July- . t

Batavia, July 3rf.—The honourable" the Lieutenant Governor in Council is pleased to direct that the following dispatch from Major Dalton, Resident and Commandant at Macassar, be published in orders.

To Major Nixon, Act. Dept-Adji.-General, Java. Sir—I have the honour to state to you, for the information of the commander of the forces, that we yesterday attacked and carried by assault the entrenched position of the enemy, at the fort of the Baliangan Pass. .

Our force for the attack consisted of Bengal artillery-men sufficient for a brigade of guns,—three hundred and forty of the hon. Company's European regiment, and 4th volunteer battalion—about fifty seamen and marines from the cruizers on this station.

On the 7th, in the afternoon, we moved to our advanced post, two miles distant from the enemy's position ; this intrench' ment was very strong and planned with great skill, forming a chain of redoubts which described an area of a circle, with salient and runtering angles to an extended line of about 600 paces, appuyed on each flank by rocks, which are high, uearr ly perpendicular, and containing caverns which answered as places of refuge against our fire; one of the caverns in a principal redoubt served as a magazine, and a fort or casemate capable of containing about a thousand men. This redoubt, with the one on its right, formed the key of the position, being within the distance of a few hundred yards of the point, when in going through the pass the defile is very narrow.

For attack the troops were formed iuto two columns, and a reserve commanded by Captain Wood and Lieut. Davison, of the Bengal European regiment; a detachment with a small howitzer, under the command of Capt. Rawlins, 4th battalion, was sent to the enemy's left to endeavour to turn his position, and another party under Lieut. Watson, European regiment, was sent to his right, to drive them from the straggling rocks, aud at all events to push him into the range of fire from our battery, this consisted of two iron 18 pounders, and two medium howitzers; we had a 6 pounder disposable. Tho battery opened a little after six in the morning, and although extremely well served, the positions appeared to be too extensive and well constructed to receifc from our guns any quick and decided impression; the enemy was supposed to be about two thousand strong, he had not auy
