British Indian Association Annual Meeting.

Presiding at the annual meeting of the British Indian Association to-day [March 22, in Calcutta], the Maharajah of Burdwan in the course of his speech said: The present time is one of the most critical periods in our national history and we find there is just now quite a number of visionaries making things more and more impossible by their earnestness towards achieving a state of affairs which is not within practical politics at present. It is therefore up to you, gentlemen, leaders and scions of a wealthy and influential community, to step in and properly guide the political destinies of the country. Let us remember we are now being in a progressive age.
