Authentic A/iračis of Minutes in the Supreme Council of Bengal; on the late Contracts for draught and carriage Bullocks, for vićlualing the European Troops, and for victualing Fort William ; the Augmentation of Sir Eyre Coore's Appointment, and Continuation of Brigadier General Stibbert’s emoluments, though superseded in the chief Command; and a remarkable treaty, offensive and defensive, with the Rajah of Gohud, a Marratta. 8vo. 1 s. 6d. Almon and Debret. 1781. The diffensions in the Supreme Council of Bengal are the subjećt of this very material publication; which will probably occasion some alarm to the friends and partizans of Mr. Hastings. This may be confidered as an introdućtion to another of still greater confideration, entitled, The Origin, &c. of the present Marratta War *, of which fone account will be given in our next. Art. 21.
