THE FINANCES OF OUR EASTERN EMPIRE. Few subjects are so unattractive to general readers as those of a financial character. The minute details of a public account, and their peculiar arrangement, which are necessary to afford a person who wishes to investigate the statement critically, a full knowledge of the matters to which it relates, are calculated to oppress and perplex. others...

So much interest, however, attachęs, especially, at the present season, to topics connected with the political condition of our Eastern empire, and the absence of correct information upon those topics leads to so much misapprehension and misrepresentation, that we shall continue the practice we commenced last year, of placing prominently before our readers a condensed and perspicuous Statement of the Annual Official Accounts laid before Parliament respecting the Finances of the East-India Company, accompanied by a few explanatory observations of our own.

The accounts from whence we extract the succeeding figüres bear the following titles, which fully refute the charge of a desire of concealment :

Accounts respecting ihe Annual Revenues and Disbursements, Trade and Sales, of the East-India Company, for Three Years, 1821-22, 1822-23, 1823-94, according to the latest Advices, together with the latest Estimate of the same, 1824:25. Ordered to be printed 9th May 1826.
