THE NEW VICEROY OF INDIA. The Lisbon correspondent of the Daily Newt writto: —" Everyone here has been taken by surprise by the appointment of Lord Lytton as Viceroy of India. and by his sudden recall. His lordship's departure i8 rpgretted because he is much liked by all parties who have come in contact with him, whether on matters of business or pleasure. For many years past no English Minister has had in such a degree the talent of ingratiating himself with the Court, nobility, and g.i.try of Portugal, all well as with the English. e immunity. For many years past no English Minister has done the honours of his house ou so liberal «. scale as Lord Lytton; For whatever reason, economy has hitherto been the order of the d iv, and complaints have been made from time to time of the parsimony of the Legation, as a liberal salary 1- given on the understanding that money is to be spent in entertainments. People who are intimate with Lord Lytton, and are able to judge, say the Government has made a judicious selection, and that he will prove the right man in the right place that he has an amount of capacity and ai-ility for hard work which, if his health hold, will make his name remembered among the most prominent Governors of India. His departure is to be regretted, because a deal of diplomatic work 18 n quired in Lisbon, work, too, of a difficult kind, fr all our treaties require renovation and reformation. We want a settlement of the everlasting question of the wine duties, the taxation of British residents and industries, and even of some matters which have not bet n looked into since the celebrated Methuen Treaty. An international arrangement is also much required for the regulation of absconding bankrupts, thieves, and other criminals. It was expected that when Lord Lytton had settled down he would have fiven his mind to these serious matters, for here it is not likely that any great diplomatic dispute will crop up, and these commercial questions are of vital importance to British sabjeots, both here and at home."
