$li(^ tSUqstijra (pamgioir. VUa sine Uteris mart est. BLACKALL, 6ATUBDAV, SEPT, 13. WHEN the treaty of pence between Great Britain and Afghanistan was signed it was considered most satisfactory and complete. The Government congratu lated the country on the position of affaire, considering that every political and commercial advantage hoped for had been gained. One clause of the treaty provided that a British Resident should be established at Cabui, and the safety and good treatment of all British ng&lt; ir.s in Afghauistau ivas guaranteed. The telegrams received this week, however, show that the Ameer's authority over hiB subjects is extremely limited. The native troopB appear to have been seduced from their allegiance by the opponents of Yakoob KUAN, of whom there are several in the country. Joined by the populace, these mutineers made a uiost determined attack upon the English residents, and as far as is known at j>rc sent have massacred all but nine persons. Who have e...
