Calcutta, Dr cembpr 27.

The National Indian Congress commenced its sittings to day at Allahabad, Three thousand delegates were present, and Mr Yule, a merchant of Calcutta, and President of the Calcutta Chamber of Commerce was elected President. In his opening address the President complained that the present system of Gorernment was defective, inasmuch as it disallowed free discussion on vital subjects, and gave no local control over finance. He advocated the election of one-half the Legislative Council instead of the present system of appointment by the Crown, but thought the Executive | should retain the right of veto. Beferring to the Marquis of Dufferin's recent i valedictory speech, Mr Yule said it ex- i hibited an imperfect knowledge of the j true condition of Indian affairs. !
