Ifeets of Gen. Roberts' Victory Upon the

LONION, Dee. 5. 'rThe news ol the irilliant I
victory achieved by (ten. Roberts in PI'iwar
Pass has raised the spirits of the government
and their supporters and proportionately
disconcerted the plans of the Radicals, who
proposed an assault on tIhe governrment aUnd
toacOentuate their c·nirplaintt bIy inslsting
that the camrpaign would probably result in
an overwirelmJng disaster to the English i
army. All tie capital they thus Intlended to
make is now lost to them.
Dispatches froim the army speak of. the re
markable skill and bravery showni by the
enemy. Their artillery was mntagniiientl t

The announcement from St. Petersburg that

the costs of the Afghan war Ito derfray'ed fromn
the Indian revenue, will probably open up the t
whole question of t holicy of the liy t:govern

measure proposed would be unjust anti unwise,
and would Inflict a crushing burden upon thea
already poverty-stricken masses in India.

deepest Interest In all that it oncsrr. .. ot only
the welfare of the river, but in all the lnhab.t
