Per our Special Wire. THE INDIAN MUTINY. FALL OF CABUL. (Ai;e S/irial. ) London, Oct. 11. News from Afghanistan states that the rebels are entrenched in Cabul citadel. General Roberts reached the city at nightfall the day after his last victory, and decided to attack it immediately. General Massey was posted at the eastern gate of the citadel to prevent the escape of insurgents. General Baker, with the main body of the British, attacked the front. The soldiers, defending the outer ramparts of the city retired precipitately as the British approached, abandoning eighty guns. The mutineers, on observing General Roberts, surrendered the citadel unopposed. The Cabulese evacuated the fortress and fled to the hills, General Massey pursuing. On the British entering Cabul, it was discovered that the city was extensively undermined, principally at the citadel.
