THE SALVATION ARMY IN INDIA.
hver since the cry for help commenced amongst the famine-stricken Natives in India, the Salvation Armv have made the moat strenuous and self-morificing efforts to alleviato the sufferioga of their dark-skinned brothers and- sisters. Already they have over 2,000 ptraons employed on relief works, and 10,000 unfortunate creatures are every week saved from starvation. 'Forty-one rise and grain depots have been established, each covering a radius of twenty miles, and 123 tons of rice and grain are distributed weekly. There are at present in India crowds of unfortunate children whose parents have been swept away by the dire ravages of famine, and over 500 of these orphans are already boused and cared for. Yesterday afternoon Adjutant Foote (late of India) gave some most interesting particulars in the Silvation Army Barracks concerning the missionary work amongst the Natives, and how the people in many places had been prevailed upon to pull down their heathen temples and destroy their false gods and embrace the religion of the only true and living God. This evening the Adjutant holds another meeting, when he promisee to enter more fully into particulars and give realistic illustrations of Hindoo costumes, manners, and superstitions.
