The Mohmands arh marching upon Shabkadi. . . The British camp at Merawi on the Indian frontier was accidentally burned, and a large quantity of saddlery and ammunition was destroyed. LONDON, September 29, : . The ‘Westminster Gazette’ says that New South Wales’s offer of troops for the Indian frontier is inopportune, and calculated to weaken British prestige amongst the Natives. It would be wiser for India to quell the rising with her own strength. The ‘St. James’s Gazette ’ advises the Imperial authorities to accept the offer, and considers it will prove an admirable demonstration of the unity of the Empire. The ‘ Daily News ’ says the proposal of New South Wales to send troops to India has afforded the liveliest satisfaction in official quarters, but adds that possibly the offer will not be accepted owing to the men arriving too late to participate in the frontier operations. The ‘ Morning Post ’ warmly urged the acceptance of the offer.

SYDNEY, September 29. The Government are lukewarm re the sending of troops to India, and will not take any definite steps unless convinced the men will arrive in time to take part in the fighting, otherwise the offer will only embarrass the Imperial authorities. Mr Reid says he has no desire for a repetition of the Soudan fiasco, when the New South Wales contingent arrived in Egypt when the campaign was over.
