INDIAN INTELLIGENCE. The Indian papers of the 15th of January contain the following items of news â The King of Siam landed at Calcutta on Saturday, the 13th instant, and was escorted in state to Government House, where his Excellency the Viceroy welcomed him to India. Fever has broken out with great virulence in the Burdwan, Hoogly, and Nuddea districts. The drainage of swamps and decayed channels is urged as the only remedy, coupled, perhaps, with the draining away of zem- inlla rs also. All that is known of Sir Richard Temple's plans for next biul et day is that the Income-tax will remain. No great opposition would be offered if the minimum (f75 a year) were raised. The cash balances are still nearly at seventeen millions sterling. The Hindoos of Calcutta have been convened to offer prayers of thanksgiving for the recovery of his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. The ('amp of Exercise at Delhi produces such abun- dant fruit that a similar gathering is regarded as a. cer- tainty next year. To secure the peace of the northern and north-western skirts of the Punjaub, the Government of India, has decided, among other stringent measures, that no building shall be erected within five miles of the British frontier, without sanction. Great satisfaction is felt among the non-official classes throughout India at the announcement made by Mr. Gladstone that it is intended to add to the Indian Council a mercantile member. Mr. Graves, of Liverpool, is ex- pected to lie nominated. The distress at Berhampore, in the Ganjam district, is described as intense. Two hundred and fifty-six people have already left Berhampore, and, according to the latest reports, about 3,000 and odd are preparing to start. Extensive Crlal helds are said to have been discovered in the Nizam's dominions. The French have abandoned Shaik Saeed as a settlement in the Red Sea.
