OUR FRONTIER WAR. The Calcutta correspondent of the Times, in a despatch of the 19th iast., says: Nothing of ifaDdrt- ance has transpired from the fronfeer. General Keyes' force left Durzai heights on the 17th and bivouacked on Naru Khula defile. r On the 16th Major Rice, commandiug the Sikhs, was severely wounded. The neighbouring tribes are reported to have sent several deputations to intercede. The Jowakia and Nagas still hold out. There is a probability, however, of their soon coming to terms. The death of the Akhoond of SWBIi is announced. There are many rival claimants for the vacant office.- -Major Sandeman is en route for England from Quettah. It is believed he brings important proposals from the Khan of Kbelat with reference to the British occupation of Quettah. These proposals are now before the Council. He states that the Belcooeh tribes are in no way dis- satisfled with British occupation. The scheme for a frontier administration has been shelved for the present, the Viceroy's proposals being cogged.with such conditions as to render the scheme worthless. The frontier policy is so intimately connected with vital considerations of Imperial policy that it is of paramount importance that the Governor-General, who ^directly responsible, should also possess the power of initiating the frontier policy and directly control- ling the frontier administration. 4
