M Li BRIGHT ON INDIA. Mr Bright presided on Wednesday at a meet- ing held in Exeter-hall in connection with the East India Association, at which Sir Win, Wed- derbura read a paper on the Poona Ryots Bank. In opening the proceedings Mr Bright said they were met to discuss a scheme for enabling Indian cultivators of the soil to borrow money for agri- cultural purposes, on reasonable terms. By re- leasing them from the grip of native money lenders, their ability to carry on cultivating opera- tions would be improved, and our rule of that dominion would be sonsolidated. By removing one cause of distress the prospects of India would greatly improve. If there was a vast population in constant distress, they must be in a state of constant discontent, and therefore, by bringing comfort into the homes of these peasants, we should induce them to look with more csntentment to the Govt rnment that controls their affairs. The result would be an immense advantage to Engl a nd materially, be- cause the vast population of India, if in a more prosperous position, would purchase greater quantities of our manufactures. A solemn duty lay upon England to compensate the people of India for the injuries done them in the past.
