In closing this Series of The ORIENTAL HERALD, which has now existed for six years, and extended to twenty-three Volumes, the Editor has the satisfaction of believing, that it has contributed, more than any similar work ever published, to awaken intense and universal attention to the interests of the Asiatic World generally, and of British India in particular. It is this conviction which consoles him for the imputations which some designing and disappointed individuals have so studiously laboured to cast both upon him and his writings ; representing his character as every thing base and unworthy, and his productions as having no other end than to fill his purse, and extend his own reputation. He is now, however, too experienced in the history of political controversy, to be moved from his purpose, or to suffer his equanimity to be disturbed by any such arts as these. Both his character and his writings have now been so long before the world, that they must be judged of on their own merits, and not according to the detractive misrepresentations of others. If throughout these last there should now and then have appeared an undue proportion of the record of events in which he himself was an actor, his justification is in this, that the events themselves were important to be recorded, and would have been recorded, whoever had been instrumental in bringing them about; but this task being left to him alone, that circumstance has never deterred him from giving the record, for the sake of the facts themselves, and not for the sake of the organ of their agitation.

In this spirit, he has never omitted any opportunity that presented itself, for calling the public attention to India ; whether it were a masonic procession, or a public feast—as was the case at Glasgow; a Bible Meeting, or a public dinneras was the case at Whitby ; a grave lecture, or a gala ball —

-as was the case at Newcastle. Whenever, and wherever, in short, the interest of the subject could be made to weave itself with passing events, there has been thought to be the best time and place for adverting to it. And as these scattered parts find no permanent record in any other work, it is well that they are embodied here, since, without this, the people of England would not be aware of the universal feeling existing in places remote from their own ; nor would the people of India know as they now will through this channel-how powerful is the sympathy in British bosoms towards them in their remote abode. In this he founds his justification ; and leaves the rest to fate.
