DISTURBANCES IN AFGHANISTAN, THE warning which we uttered in our yes- terday's issue has not waited long for justifi- cation. The disturbing wave already crosses Afghanistan. So at least we are informed. The intelligence which has reached us is too meagre to allow of any very accurate notion being formed as to what has actually ttran- spired. If it be true that AYOOE Khan has been taken prisoner, one great difficulty seems fairly on the way to be terminated. The present nominal, if not real, head of the Government at Cabul can- not well afford to have a rival running wild and free through a portion of his dominion, and keeping himself and his followers in readiness to attack whenever an opportunity may arrive. There is nothing yet to excite any uneasiness among ourselves-. ABDCR RAHMAN Khan may seem to Lord BEACONS- FIELD to be the very man to be entrusted with supreme authority in that country, and if the people themselves think so they will rally round him. On the other hand, it must be a matter of supreme indifference to us. We have, on more than one occasion, chosen our own sovereignâdisplacing one and substi- l. tuting another. We hope .we ahall not even have to think of doing so aglD; but if we haV84 it.wUi. QAt ba ta múiaiderA thai. ahilL look for advice. We shall, no doubt, com- mune within ourselves, and decline to be dictated to. We have no more right of in- terference in the settlement of Candahar I than Candahar has in our settlement. We have already done much evil in Afghanistan, but that will not justify a repetition of the wrong. We have our work to do, and while we are pursuing it we may allow Candahar to find its own way to loyalty and peace.
