The postmaster and his staff were surprised, and surrendered^ and Peshawar was cleared of the dangerous elements. ■

An Afghan force ■ at: Kota^/' rMn- : forced by enemy tr^ps, jadvancetl to Ashkehl. thus encroaching on territory* within the British limits. A small force of Afghans and Regulars have; moved into Afghan Mohmand catmtry with the . object of stiffening any tribesmen whom they may, succeed in raising. A significant feature is that the Ameer's exhortation failedl to enlist the sympathies of/the independent tribes^ from whom he expected immediate support.
