THE INDIAN FRONTIER RISING. ♦ — The news from the Indian frontier includes the statement that fears are entertained of a rising of the Black Mountain tribes. An attack by 2,000 tribesmen on the Sadda camp on the night of September 16th is also reported. After three hours' fighting the enemy retired, and the loss on the British side amounted to only two of the native troops killed and three wounded. General Westmacott's brigade has effected the passage of the Nahaki Pass, and an immediate junction of his force with that of Sir Bindon Blood is probable. General Elles's division is also within a short distance of Sir Bindon Blood's camp. MOHMUNDS ASKING FOR TERMS. The Viceroy, telegraphing to the India Office yesterday (Tuesday), says:—Blood at Nawagai reports that on Sept. 19th Hadda Mullah, with a small gathering in the Bedmani Pass was held in check by the 3rd Brigade. The 2nd Brigade, under General Jeffreys, is in ample strength, and is punishing the Mohmunds, who are beginning to ask for terms. Blood proposes, when joined by part of Elles' force, to attack the Hadda Mullah. MORE TROOPS ORDERED OUT. Another large detachment of cavalry has been ordered from Canterbury for India. It will comprise drafts from the 4th and 5th Dragoons, 4th, 11th, 18th, 19tb, and 20th Hussars, and 16th Lancers. SHARP FIGHTING. HEAVY LOSSES. General Jeffrey's brigade had some severe fighting with the Mohmunds on Thursday. Advancing up their valley to punish them for their attack on the camp on Tuesday, the British force found the enemy awaiting them on the hills, eight miles from camp. The 35th Sikhs, who first attacked, after driving back the tribesmen, were themselves obliged to retire before superior numbers, and it was not until after an obstinate combat that the enemy were at last routed. The force halted for some time on the scene of action, destroying the Mohmund towers, and then returned to camp. The enemy pressed them close, and, darkness coming on, General Jeffreys, with his escort, and the guides, became separated from the column, and were not rescued until after more hard fighting. The British loss was heavy- nine officers and 129 rank and file killed and wounded. THE COMMAND IN INDIA. The Press Association is officially informed by the War Office, that the Queen has been pleased to approve of General Sir William Lockhart being appointed Commander-in-Chief in India, when General Sir George White relinquishes that position.
