THE OVERLAND MAIL. The principal subject in the news from India, orought by the Overland mail, is the hostilities with the hill tribes on the Punjaub frontier. The fighting has been very severe, and the serious nature of the wound received by General Cham- berlain, in the fighting on the 20th November, and his consequent resignation of the command, is con- firmed. Major General Garvock is the gallant gene- ral's successor. It is said that there are signs that the confederacy of the hill tribes is disheartened.â The news from Japan is interesting. A combination had been formed of the two parties hostile to foreigners âthose who were for the forcible and immediate and those who were for the gradual ejection of foreigners. The latter policy is to be adopted in the main, with a sprinkling of the former when opportunity affords. -^The matter of chief interest from China is the rela- tions of Major Gordon and Captain Sherard Osborn with the Chinese Government. The following telegram has since been received at the India Office, â '->â 'BOSSST, Dec. W.i An official telegram from Lahore, dated December 24, states that the Guide corps and a contingent of the Bonair tribe, which were detached for the purpose of destroying Mulka, have returned to Umbeylah. The original object of the expedition has thus been accomplished in the destruction of the seat of the Hindustanee fanatics. The force, there- fore, will return to the plains, and after the exaction of hostage^ from the Judoon and Othmanzy tribes, will go into quarters. The Peshawur district and border is quiet. The Punjab is perfectly tranquil.
