LONDON , August 2 10 p. m. A
dispatch from Simla says that rumors
of a heriuus rising at Cabul have
reached that place. The telegraph
wires were cut beyond Tolebund thia
morning , yet it i * supposed that the
act was committed by the discontent
ed and their followers. There ia rea-
eon to doubt thu fidelity of Abdul
Rbaman Khnu to the assurances that
he gave tha representatives of the
British government at the durbar , at
which he nas recognized as ameer.
Evidence of a treacherous disposition
on his par. oSc'- itself on his refusal
to amend the durbar. At a consulta
tion had yesterday on the camp ground
of the British army at Kerva , Abdul
Ithaman excused himself by saying
that in the present condition of the
country ho thought it not wise to provoke -
voke further aggression from Ayool
Khan , especially until reinforcement *
arrived from India , and that the newt
of the agreement between Adubon Z -
hoc r , the British nd himself would
incite the tribes to rise in the neigh
borhood of bis capital. The threaten-
Ingittitudo towards the British ol
Abdul Rahman's followers , which he
does nothing to rebuke , taken to
gether with 'us ' own do-n 'thine pnlicj
carries wi h it a susp cirn wind
am miits Elmnst to a dumontt'iitioi
that he in/ends to seek f vor w'th hii
Incensed coun rymon by bttreyinj
the British into their hands rind thu
-make snme eort cf n compromise witl
AyoobKhan , if necessary. The situ

and it teems plain that the British
must withdraw from the country i
they can and acknowledge a final defeat
feat , or send armies large enough t (
make their hold good against a genera

Victori t's batjd , estimated at 60 or
nu-re , attempted to p-iss north be
tween the Eagle and Q'litman moun
tains to-day. I was encamped with a
email party at the point which they
attempted to pass. Having leanitd ,
at 1 o'clock this morning , of their
prubsb e approach , I fortified the po
sition with such mo-ns as wore availa
ble and sent orders to Captain Yi.le
at E-g o Spiings and CapUin Nolan ,
at Qmtman , to proceed immediately
to that piaca. At 4 a. m. a detach
ment of thirteen men , under Lieuten
ant Finley , reported to me , previously
to which I had but seven men , includ
ing teamsters. At about 0 a. m. the
Indiana were observed approaching
rapidly in force. They were vigor
ously repulsed and our position held
until the arrival of Captain Ville at
abuut 11 o'clock a. m. with hia com
pany and part of company G , Tenth
Cavalry. Upon his approach , a sharp
action took place between the troops
and the Indians , in which the latter
were severely punished. Lieutenant
Oalloday was wounded and one man
of company Ekillcd and eight wound
ed. In the entire engagement , which
lasted about three hours , several In
dians were killed and many wounded.
Upon the arrival of Captain Nolan's
company , the Indians iled rapidly to
the Rio Grande , none having gone
north. The Mexican troops returned
to the Rio Grande , opposite Quitman ,
on the 28 h , being entirely out of sup
plies. They are now moving down
the river and are opposite here. From
the best informntion wo have , it is
thought that the Indians will now at
tempt to pass north between the Ea
gle and Van Horn mountains , and I
have made the best possible disposi
tions of the troops available to inter
rupt and puni h the marauders.

A Joke.
It was reported among tha mould *
era at the U. P. shops yesterday
that the wife of ono of their
number , Mrs. Thomas G.din , had
died , the funeral to take place this af
ternoon. According to custom , a few
of them asked to ba laid off to attend
the funeral , and it appears that they
were oil laid ciT for the day. Somj
of them hired livery rigs and made
every preparation for a first-class
fanral , and appeared at the rasi-
donce , on North Nineteenth street , at
the appointed hour. After having
waited sumb time ono of the mould-
era thought that there should be more
activity displayed than was visible
about the Imuso , and at once proceed
ed to investigate. He found that the
lady supposed to bo dead was away
visiting , and the honao wag locked up.
The proposed funeral was therefore
indefinitely postponed.
