THE INDIAN FRONTIER RISING. BALUCHISTAN OUTRAGE. The native levies forming the garrison of a police post on the Baluchistan section of the Indian Frontier have been murdered by Brahuis, and the offending tribesmen are being pursued by a force of cavalry. The insurgents who gathered on the hills in the neighbourhood of Quetta have now dispersed, but some 2,000 are reported to have collected at Saifaldara. Further hostilities are feared at Shabkadar. NATIVE CHIEFS FRIENDLY. Sir William Lockhart has been appointed to the command of the punitive expedition against the Afridis, and is now proceeding to Bombay to complete the necessary arrangements. Some skirmishing is reported from the North-West frontier, but no engagement of importance has taken place. A satisfactory feature is the readiness with which native ruling chiefs in all parts of India are offering troops for the sup- pression of the present outbreak. ATTACK ON GULISTAN. A half-hearted attack was made on Gulistan by the enemy on the 3rd inst. Captain Hoghton was attacked while on his way to Gulistan, and three men were wounded. Lieutenant Pratt had a bullet through his helmet. It is reported that Balesh Kbel, on the Kurram River, was attacked by a force of 3,000 tribesmen on the 1st instant. Captain M'Conchy. of the Kurram Militia, cut off the enemy, losing three killed. BRUSHES WITH THE ENEMY. [BY TELEGRAPH.] The Viceroy, telegraphing yesterday to the India Office, says :— General officer, Malakand, reports Wode- house found Ranjkora Bridge in good condition. The officer commanding the second brigade marches to Chakdara. It is stated that the surrender of arms continues. Health good. General officer at Kohat says all is quiet there; but Colonel Richardson, while watering party of the 18th Bengal Cavalry was fired on. He charged, killiag five of the enemy. One sowar of the 18th Bengal Cavalry was killed. The attack on the British at Khel on Sept. 1st seems to have been made by 3,000 Afridis.
