The Daily News’ Cabul correspondent telegraphs -
“Foraging parties from General ROSS’s force have been fired on by the Neukh
tribesmen, who were punished last November. On a force moving to cover the
foraging parties the enemy retired. A reconnaissance shows that the Ghuznee
road is clear. The towers are deserted. Two or three thousand Umar Kheyl
Ghilzais hold the neighboring hills.
General STEWART is within two days march of Ghuznee. Cabul is quiet. Two
guns, a wing of the 92nd, and the Guides Corps marched to Charasiab on Wednesday
to watch the Sogar Valley.
The Standard’s Bombay correspondent states that communication with Candahar
has been re-established, and posts at Cabul have been strengthened and
fortified. Reports have been received to the effect that the Hazavas, taking
advantage of the British advance, have attacked and captured Ghuznee. According to
reports from Turkestan, Abdul Rahman has executed several of his followers on
the ground that they have mutinied, and that Cabul levies had deserted.
