THE SUBMISSION OF THE JOWAKIS. ) The Calcutta correspondent or the Times, under < date March 10th, says: A Durbar was held on Monday last at Peshawur, in presence of the whole garrison, for the purpose of receiving a public expression of submission on the part of the Jowakis. The Jowskin accordingly paid the fine of 5000 rupees imposed by the Government, and surrendered twenty-five English and twenty-five native rifles, which included those stolen from Shahcote. The Lieutenant-Governor, in addressing the various chiefs assembled, said that he had summoned them to-day to witness the submis- sion of the Jowakis to the British Government; and that under pressure the Jowakis had now submitted to the terms proposed, expelling from their territories four of their people who had been chiefly concerned in acts of plunder and bloodshed. They had also surrendered the rifles demanded, had paid a fine of 5000 rupees, and had further given hostages for future good behaviour. Although the Jowaki country might with justice have been permanently annexed, the Government had no desire to seize the possessions of its neighbours, and therefore had consented to restore these lands on condition of their submission. The conduct of the other Eec- tions of the Adam Khel tribes had been praise- worthy. The Government," he continued, will not permit the peace which reigns within its own boun- daries to be broken by turbulent neighbours; it pos- sesses both the will and the power to punish vio- lence and aggression, and will not hesitate to exer- cise that power promptly and severely." Many of the chiefs there assembled receive large allowances in cash, grants, jaghires, and honours, conditional on service to the Government, and yet they had failed to manifest any really zealous loyalty. Their loyalty was not active but asleep. They were de- voured by jealousies and enmities against each other. This was the cause of the troubles existing within and without the border of their dominions. The Govern- ment, however, would no longer tolerate such a state of things, cut would demand from all those whom it had honoured and enriched loyal, hearty, and undi- vided service. At the conclusion of hiff speech, the Lieutenant-Governor praised the conduct of the troops as admirable and deserving warm acknow- ledgment.
