Departure of Missionaries. --A scene of unusual interest took place on Commercial wharf this morning, on the occasion of the departure of two bands of Missionaries, on the fine ship Sea King, for Madras and Calcutta. For the Ceylon Mission, under the care of the American Board, there were Nathan Ward, M. D., and wife, Rev. John C. Smith and wife, Rev. J. A. Bates; and for the Methodist Mission in India, under the patronage of the Methodist Episcopal Church, Rev. Mr. Jackson and wife, Rev. Mr. Hauser. A very large congregation of their friends, and others interested in the missions, assembled to see them off. Religious services were held on board, which were conducted by Bishop Baker. After the ship left the wharf the audience on shore joined in singing the missionary hymn.-- Boston Journal,30th.
Missionaries sailed. --The ship National Eagle railed from Boston on Saturday for Madras and Calcutta. The following were passengers: Rev. Edward Webb, wife and two children; Rev. John Sendder, M. D., and wife; Rev. D. C. Sendder and wife; Edward Gould, Jr., of Boston; Mrs. Matthews (captain's wife,) and child.
sown, in most cases, for want of rain; in other cases for want of seed, the seed having been consumed for food, and the Banners refusing to advance, as there is no prospect of a remunerative return. The prospects for the future are as dark and gloomy, therefore, as the present distress is grievous. The people throughout the country have contributed liberally for the relief of the sufferers. Bombay has given one lac and thirty thousand rupees. Calcutta has given an equal sum. Aid from Madras is yet to be realized. What would such an amount of money do, even under the most favorable circumstances, to save three millions of people from perishing for lack of bread! There are three great asylums at Delhi, outside the city; One at the Knoodsea Bagh, the original relief house, which admits only the most aged, infirm, and feeblest objects of compassion, as well as the latest arrivals, who are committed to the civil surgeon for treatment. In this there were some eight hundred. T

like frantic insanity. The poor man was hunted up, and dragged to the place of execution, and the tyrant jactitating at intervals; 'Is he dead? Is he dead?' as if grudging a prolonged existence even of a few minutes." This king, in his savage and unreasonable humors, which had often a sort of grim absurdity about them, that nobody but the vis time could help laughing at, was nothing so much as an ill conditioned and cruel school bully. A band of adroit jugglers, who had crossed from Madras on speculation to exhibit their feats in the royal presence, had been so highly successful that his majesty, by way of rewarding melt, had forbidden their departure; and the poor wretches had been already at the court two years, without a prospect of release, on a splendid allowance of a basket of rice to each person monthly. 'The old king, grandfather of the present one, was by turns a bigot and a heretic; at one time slaying his subjects, because they were not orthodox Buddhists; at a

r. A French grenadier in the East Indian service having deserted, in his wanderings in the country chanced to hear an account of this idol and its wonderful eye. He formed a plan to gain possession of it Professing himself a convert to the faith of Brahma, he studied for the ministry, and, after a suitable probation, became one of the inferior priests of this temple, where he secreted himself one night, and stole the diamond eye of the idol. He made his way to the English camp, and then to Madras, where he sold the eye to a ship captain for two thousand pounds. It went from hand to hand, and was finally bought by Prince Orloff for his mistress, the Empress Catherine of Russia. The price was one hundred thousand pounds and a patent of nobility, which is something considerable for a bit of crystalized carbon that one could carry in his watch- pocket. So much for diamonds — the most concentrated form of that wonderful thing which we "The real value of the diamond It is worth some

per thousand. This was attributed to the marshy location of the military posts and to the rations of salt pork and rum, but with a removal of the cause, it was reduced to thirty-two per thousand. At Ceylon, the mortality has decreased from 47 per thousand to 38 per thousand; at St. Helena from 24 to 12; at the Jamaica Islands from 27 to 17; at Newfoundland 37 to 11 per thousand. The Indian Empire is the only exception, though even there, there has been in Bombay a slight decrease, and in Madras the deaths have fallen from 75 to 41 per thousand. To those who have looked with deep despondency as well as grief upon the sufferings of our own soldiers by sickness during the past season, we commend the following splendid testimony to the value of sanitary science from Florence Nightingale, as holding out the hope, that by the conscientious and intelligent use of the same means our Southern army may shake off altogether the fetters of disease: "The barracks and the military hospital
