IMPORTS. British Cotton PIECE Goods.-We can notice but little alteration in almost any article for some weeks past; transactions have been moderate, and as stocks have been accumulating, purchasers seek for a reduction in prices, which holders appear determined to resist. Shirtings.--Good heavy greys are wanted; stock of best qualities is small, but of low qualities heavy; white in moderate demand. Jaconets, coarse makes, are wanted, and becoming scarce ; the better descriptions are selling to a moderate extent. Lappets, low qualities, are sought for, and Scarfs are also in fair demand. Mull Muslins in better demand, and holders are firm now that the best season is approaching. In Book Muslins we can observe no change.

PRINTED GOODS. - In moderate demand, only a few Caubul dealers having as yet made their appearance.

TURKEY ŘED Cloths.-Twills have slightly declined, owing to the heavy stocks at present on hand.

COLOURED YARNS.—The sales of German dyed red have been considerable, viz. :-49 bales, but without alteration in value ; green has been sold at 0-13 per lb.; in orange nothing doing.

MISCELLANEOUS. The 42nd M. N. 1. have been ordered from Madras to China.

We understand that the Venerable Archdeacon Harper either has resigned, or shortly will resign, his appointment, and return to England. He will be succeeded in the Archdeaconry by the Rev. J. C. Street, A. B. at present at home - Record, Dec 26.

The 44th regt. N.I. marched from Palaveram yesterday en route to Trichinopoly. We hear that the Right Wing of H.M. 57th regt. will march to Arnee in about a fortnight. We regret to hear of the indisposition of the Lord Bishop of Madras. We understand that his lordship has been recommended to proceed to Egypt without delay. The Right Wing of H.M. 94th regt. has been ordered to march from Trichinopoly en route to Negapatam on the 3rd instant, to be there ready for embarkation to “ Aden.” – Circulator, Jan. 3.

H.M. ship For, bearing the flag of Commodore Sir Henry Blackwood, arrived in the roads from Trincomallee on Wed. nesday morning. The commodore disembarked the same even. ing under the usual salute. - United Service Gazette, Jan. 10.

Our much respected diocesan quitted the presidency under the usual salute, at 4 p. m. yesterday, on a pastoral tour of visi. tation through the southern provinces, his lordship having given up his intention of proceeding for change of climate to Egypt and Syria, as recommended by his medical advisers. Ibid.

The arrival of the Overland express has been simultaneous with that of the Bentinck, with upwards of a hundred passengers from Suez. This steamer had the misfortune to get on shore at Aden, but was got off by the powerful assistance of H.M. brig Serpent and the Hon. Company's cruiser Euphrates. The accident occurred in an attempt to clear an Arab vessel that was lying in her way; it became necessary, after she took the ground, to reJieve her of part of her cargo, which appears to have been done with much expedition, when she floated, suffering no further in. convenience than the detention of about six or seven hours.-Athenæum, Jan. 18.

crops, fed further into the interior of Scinde, calling aloud upon meas, governor of the province, to give them protection.

"Oli my part, I applied to their sovereign, the khan of Khelet, to control his subjects. He promised to do this; but they were not controlled.

I believe his highness the khan has the most friendly intentions with regard to the British Government, but it was evident that the arch robber and rebel Beejar Khan Doomkie was too powerful in arms to be reduced to obedience by his prince. So true is this, that he openly bestowed, in Jaghire, large tracts of his Sovereign's territory, and to which the latter was constrained to submit.

“I was, therefore, obliged to reinforce our outposts against this unexpected and unprovoked enemy; and on one occasion our troops wholly failed in an attack made upon Beejar Khan. This was at the period of the year when the heat was so very great as to be insupportable to human beings exposed to the mid-day sun. upon the the . These orders, together with the success of Beejar Khan, rendered the rebel tribes more daring. They frequently entered the Scindian frontier in search of plunder, and were on one or two occasions attacked on our own territory, and defeated by the troops, the police, and the villagers themselves, who several times turned out to aid the troops.

“It must be evident to every one that such a state of things could not be suff-red by any regular Government, and I was directed by the Governor-General of India to take such steps as were necessary to tranquillize the frontier and protect the people of Scinde.

“ I have here to remark, that the ex-Ameer Shere Mahumed had located himself among those robbers, and excited them to plunder Scinde. He was also in hopes of exciting an insurrection in his favour. But the chiefs of Scinde had no desire for his return; stilt less would the people of Scinde assist him, conscious of having a degree of protection under the British Government which they never experienced under that of the Ameers. The Ameer consequentiy gave over bis attempt and retired to the Seikh territory.

“ Such was the state of things on the frontier when the cold season arrived; and in consequence of the solicitations made by me to the Khan of Khelat, his highness made a feeble effort against his rebel subjects; he advanced from Dador to Poolajee.

It is evident that the rebels well knew the danger they would incur were they to meet their Prince on the plain, where he could be assisted at any moment by the British, and each day's march brought him nearer to our chain of outposts. The strength of the rebels lay in the Boogtee mountains; and to the mountains they of course retired.

Among these celebrated defiles and passes the Khan dared not pursue them. The amount of his forces did not exceed 2,000 men, and even these were by no means under his eommand. An immediate retreat was decided upon by his highness.

“While this prince was at Poolajee, I sent a vakeel to beg that he would allow me to have a conference with him either at Poolajee, at Dadur, at Bagh, at Gundava, or any other place his highness close to appoint. His answer was a refusal, for reasons which I cannot muke public without doing his highness an injury.

My vakeel therefore returned; but I felt that it was necessary to have in writing his highness's formal acknowledgment of bis inability to control his subjects, the Doomkees, Jakranees, and Boogtees, and his desire that I would punish their rebellion 'and their murderous inroads upon the Scinde territory.

" It was also necessary that I should have his highness's rea. sons in writing for not meeting me. I therefore despatched Mr. Brown, the secretary to the Scinde Government, who is a personal friend of the Khan, and possessing my highest confidence, in hopes some arrangement might be made for an united exer: tion to repress these mountain robbers, but in vain. The state of the Khan's territories beyond the Bolan Pass rendered him unable to attend to the affairs of Cutchee; and he appeared to hold nothing but a nominal sovereignty over that rich tract of country of which Bagh is the centre.

“ On Mr Brown's return from Bagh, so daring were the robber tribes, that he was nearly taken (and to be taken by them is synonymous with beirig murdered) by 300 cavalry belonging to the rebels, who had pushed about 80 miles from their haunts for the express purpose of way-laying Mr. Brown. The course to be pursued by me has now become clear and decisive.

It is to enter the Boogtee mountains and attack these robber tribes in their fastnesses. They are the Pindarrees of the Indus.

" As Mr. Brown rode through the villages, he found them



(From the Gentleman's Gazette.) We lay before our readers an important document. It is an authentic translation of the manifesto or proclamation issued by General Sir C. Napier on his proceeding with the expedition into the country of the Doomkies, the Jakranees, and the Boogties, &c., for the purpose of putting a stop to their predatory incursions into the Scinde territory.


“ Being about to cross the Scinde frontier at the head of a strong body of troops, I think it right to state to the neighbouring tribes why 1 thus invade the territory of our friend the Khan of Khelat, in order that those tribes may be satisfied as to the cause of my movements, and that they may not think the said move. ments arise from a desire of acquiring territory or molesting allies.

“ His highness the Khan of Khelat has given me permission to enter his territories, and had he not done so, I must still have invaded them for the protection of our own subjects.

“ These territories are occupied, as regards our immediate frontier, by three powerful and predaceous tribes, the Doomkies, the Jackranees, and the Boogties (there are also some others of inferior note). These tribes are in open rebellion against their sovereign, the Khan of Khelat.

" During the whole of last summer they were excited by their desire of pillage to make, without the slightest pretext, frequent predatory inroads on the Scinde territory, plundering villages, murdering many of the inhabitants, and devastating the country: In several instances they were engaged with our outposts; and on one occasion, falling upon 200 unarmed and unoffending grasscutters, they massacred nearly the whole of them, together with an officer's party of cavalry, who were guarding these poor people, and whom the robbers surprised. Many villages on our frontier were lest desolate, the inhabitants of which, abandoning their
