CALCUTTA, September 16. The advance of the column under Brigadier-general Sir Bindon Blood upon Nawagai, and the march of the detachment under the command of Brigadiergeneral Elles upon Krappa Pass, met with no opposition.

A great force of Orakzais had gathered 400 yds from Fort Gulistam, and the tribesmen were making preparations to storm the fort when Brigadier-general Yeatman Biggs opened fire with longrange artillery, which dispersed the rebels. It is expected that this movement on the part of the British force will have the effect of preventing the tribesmen from molesting the posts in the Samana Range until Lieutenant-general Sir W. Lockhart (Commander-in-Chief of the Forces in the Punjab) arrives from England to conduct an expedition to Tirah, the stronghold of the Afridis. °
