Now a flood of light has been thrown on the political condition of India, in the very time when Megasthenes visited it, by the recent recovery of the Kautilya Arthasastra. The readers of this Periodical have enjoyed the advantage of being the first to get a sight of the learned R. Shamasastry's translation of that ancient sanskrit text. So it is needless to point out to them the many interesting details it contains. Thus e.g., all the numerous officials and functionaries in one of the petty States of ancient India are named and their functions defined, and described.
