you on hat I think it necessary to offer a few brief n reply to his comments on my bantering coaiments on my assumed I am sure he will not himself think deserving of and they shall have I can on the most credible to that the Proprie or is wrong in his conjecture that the Missionaries considered he tracts to which I adverted as and were anxious to give them a wide currency on the I can assure the on the same that they admitted hose tracts to be not only useless as a means of nitof a tendency decidedly I have too much respect for the characters of the individuals composing the Anabaptist to disbelieve their that the tracts in question were published without their knowledge of the contents of With regard to the effects which T stated as likely to be pro duced by those scurrilous and offensive I not merely from an intimate acquaintance with the feelings of the natives of especially the on religious sub jects but from the representation of one of that very class into whose hands a copy of one of those tracts had and by whom those tracts which related to the Mahomcdanreligion were brought to the notice of But as tho Proprietor has denied that tracts of that issuing From a the properly of were calculated to excite the fanaticism of the bigoted Mussulman or he expects his I to consider his argument of negation superior to any argument derived from or I have some as well as the of having heard of a Missionary proclaiming the absurdity of the Pagan worship at for I also he got heartily kicked and pelted lior is this the only instance of folly and of similar treatment within my But it is not to be inferred from these exploits of individual that the natives of India will patiently sub mit to the vilification of their systematically promulgated under the sanction of that Government which has guaranteed to them the unmolested enjoyment of their religious rites and ceremonies and I must again that it is the absolute duty of the Local Government of India to by an act of the liberty of the when it is prostituted to purposes so dangerous to the public safety and The Proprietor has adduced the writings of RamMohun as a parallel to the tracts whichI and as a proof of the indifference with which the Hindoos tolerate au on theirreligious faith but the position is not and the inference is not The writings of Ram Mohun Roy have not the most distant resemblance to the tracts whidh I refer aa the Proprietor himself would if he had perused The are not by any means 30 easily roazed to fanaticism as the Mussulmans setting this consideration I would ask whether the disquisitions of a on subjects of nis own can have theslightest tendency to excite the fanaticism of the pro fessors of that religion against Europeans or the European administration in merely noticing these offensive we have beentaking a rery narrow view of the question of a free press iu The state o and the nature of the Local are not such as to that country for the introduction of an unlimited freedom of the When a constitution shall be established in such as has been the jrowth of ages in England when a shall have been brmed in that country corresponding in its and compo sition with a British public then let the press from the cbntroul of the governing power but in the actual condition of the European Establishments in the which is advocated is only calculated to disturb the peace and harmony of the by subserving the purposes of private aui mosilies and petty cavils and to weaken the authority of and promote bydiscussingthc merits of public for the conduct of which the Government w not responsible as in England to the community at and of which that community has under the system of the Indian cannot have the means of because precluded from access to the aod the deliberations of the governing in or any other concerns of or to the sources of its informatioB relative Jo events and transactions within the limits of its controul and The Proprietor las totally overlooked that part of my letter in which I quoted tSie recorded resolutions of the Governor General in the Marquis of Hastings and his in support of the view of the question which I have Why he has omitted to notice tils material part of mjr he best can That high so far from advocating the freedom of the press in has positively prohibited animadversions on the measures and proceedings either of the Authorities at or ef the Local Governments abroad it strictly prohibited having a tendency to create alarm or suspicion among the native of any intended interference with their religious opinionsor and has even forbidden the republication of passages in news papers from coming under any of the preceding These restraints on the liberty of the press were esta blished at the moment when the the regulations for the guidance of I am credibly were less restrictive than those whici have superseded was for reasons than those assigned by Proprietor I am sure the will not deem me rery perti nacious or when I continue to opi inipn whichjis thus practically supported by the highest British tauthority in io opposition to I have only to ithat with this letter the correspondence will close on
