With power to add to their number.

The Committee have the pleasure to announce that they remitted by the Mail of the 3d inst. £20,000 to Sir Geo. Clerk, K.C.B., Governor of Bombay, to be distributed by His Excellency through the local authorities to the districts most urgently requiring relief. The Committee have been informed that an impression prevails that the distress is only of a temporary nature, but the fact is that no permanent relief can be obtained till the period of the autumnal rains; and the Committee therefore urgently appeal to the public not to relax their efforts until it shall have been ascertained by direct intelligence from India that no further relief is required.

The General Committee will meet at the Mansion-house on Friday, the 12th inst., at 3 o'clock. The Sub-Committee meets on Wednesday and Friday.

The next mail will leave (via Marseilles) on the 10th inst., and the Committee hope the funds by that time placed at their disposal will enable them to remit a still larger sum to India.

A statement in proof of the deplorable condition of the famine-visited districts has been prepared, and will be forwarded to any public official upon application to the Honorary Secretaries.

Subscriptions may be remitted to the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor, to either of the Hon. Secretaries, at the Mansion-house, or paid into any banker in the United Kingdom, to the credit of the Indian Famine Relief Committee with the Bank of England.

The Committee have much pleasure in acknowledging the receipt on Monday last of advices of collections made in various churches on Good Friday and Easter Sunday, on behalf of the Indian Famine Relief Fund, and it is earnestly hoped that the example will be followed throughout the United Kingdom, both by clergymen of the Establishment and by ministers of the several Nonconformist bodies.
