AN

ACCOUNT, &c

The wholeof the knowledge, which the public 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 newspapers. 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 Controul, 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 investigate them; but we shall content ourselves, at the present, with barely noticing the fact.
