Cable News. (From the Herald.) NANA SAHIB. Singapore, October 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Singleton Argus and Upper Hunter General Advocate — 31 October 1874
" Cabls 2~e~d. (From the jLtcralu.^ NASA. SAHIB. Singapore, October 26. Jx is represented that Nana Sahib had been wandering in the North-eastern Provinces of Bhotan and Assam, and that he crossed over to Barreily (a dis- trict in the North-western Provinces'); ; but it is denied that ha went to Neroaul. A difference of opinion has arisen amongst medical men as to bis age, nnd the question of identity is causing deep interest. Mr. Tressider, -a surgeon, who was at Cawnpore in 1857, the year in which Nana Sahib perpetrated his horrible atrocities, fails to recognise him. Other witnesses have, however, been called, including Messrs, Mowbray and Thompson. The Scindia who arrested him is convinced that the prisoner is none other than Nana Sahib.
