ENGLAND AND BURMAH. RECEIPT OF DISPATCHES FROM MAN DAL AY. ADVANCE OF THE BRITISH TROOPS. REPORTED ASSASSINATION OF KING THEEBAW. REVOLUTION AT MANDALAY. [" CENTRAL, NEWS TELEGRAM."] L BOMBAY MONDAY. The Indian Government have received dis- patches of a very important nature from Mandalay. Nothing has yet transpired as to the tenour of the intelligence. but on its "eccipt orders were at once given for the I mniediate despatch of troops to Burmab. j KJiOM OUR OWN COftRKSPONI)FXT. BOMBAY, SUNDAY NIGHT. The latest news from Mandalay shows that King Theebavr continues in a war-like mood, lnd is making extraordinary preparations for opposing the threatened invasion. The palace has been strongly fortified. The late King's Foreign Minister, notorious for his hostility to England, has been re- called to oftice, and altogether the main- tenance of peace seems hopeless. It is estimated that the British Indian Expedition will cost live million lakhs of rupees nonthiy. T)Al Y NEWS TKI.KORA.] CALCUTTA, TUESDAY. It is rumoured at Rangoon that King Theebaw jas been ass:1sinated. It is alo reported that a revolution has taken >lace at Mandalay. The troops which form the Madras Brigades are leing formed ;n Madras. It is announced that hey will not embark until they receive further irders. Colonel Bengougii is Chief of the Staff. The steamers Tigris ;u:d Peel have been ordered .0 proceed to Rangoon from Calcutta.. I" TIMFS SFCOD EDITION TEI.KGRAM.] RANGOON, TUESDAY. Tin* Turquoise has arrived. A strict, watch is Kept on all arrivals from Upper Burmah, who are interrogated and searched at the railway station. Although the Indian authorities have decided that the only force to advance on Mandalay is the expedition up the Irrawaddy, a strong opinion is entertained by the local authorities and those specially acquainted with the country, that a small column should advance from Tourgoo to the town of Ningyan, forty miles north of the British frontier, a town which is second in importance only to Mandalay. A considerable amount of bullion was forwarded on Monday to Mandalay from Rangoon, and large sums have been recently advanced on extravagant terms to King Theebaw by Indian traders, farming monopolists, and others holding contracts from the Government. The money will certainly be used to provide arms with which to resist us. 'TIM'S TKLEORAM.J L RANGOON, MONDAY. Telegraphic communication with Mandalay is .topped doL Thayetmyo. to prevent the news of the Ultimatum reaching Mandalay before the arrival .f the steaine** Doowoon, specially despatched by Mr. Bernard to bring away Europeans, or intelli- gence of the war preparations here being sent thither. Mr. Haas applied for permission to pro- ceed to Mandalay in the Doowoon, but was refused Dy Mr. Bernard. The general opinion is that hostilities are certain .0 ensue. Saraydawoyea, on hearing the terms of the Ultimatum, declared that the Burmese would resist to the last before submitting. At Mandalay the fortifications of the palace are tluing strengthened and the houses near the ramparts removed. M. De Facien, a French adven- turer, for many years general in the Burmese service, has been dismissed by the king, but he 3till remains at Mandalay. Kingwoon Mingyee recently counselled King Theebaw to adopt, a conciliatory policy towards ha British, but the king replied to him that if he oVde so much afraid of the English he had better retire into a monastery. Six large barges, belonging to the Rangoon Port Trust, have been fitted out as floating batteries. Each will carry two 60-pounder howitzers, and will be attended by armed launches. Twelve 25-pounder siege guns will be mounted on steamer?. The howitzers will be worked by the Royal Artillery and the siege guns by the Naval Brigade. The flotilla which proceeds up the Irrawaddy ,ivill comprise about 45 steamers, flats, and floating batteries. Mr. Bernard is displaying great energy in for- warding the preparations. The expedition, it is decided, will only advance tlong the Irrawaddy to join the force which moves rom Tongoo. DESPATCH OF STORES AND AMMUNI- TION. The steamer Nuddea left the Roval Albert Docks m Wednesday with 150 tons of ordnance stores for the naval station at Trincomalee, Ceylon, to be available for the use of the fleet employed in the Irrawaddy expedition. On her way down the Thames the Nuddea embarked eleven tons of small arms and other ammunition, including a number of mines, which, in the event of war, will ae used for blowing up any obstructions which Day be met with in the Irrawaddy. The Press Association is officially informed "tiiat the Government have received no informa- iion confirming the reported assassination Of King fheebaw at Mandalay. The rumour is believed to je incorrect. Mr. Edmund Kimber, solicitor, recently wrote to the India Office calling attention to the fact that, although the British Ultimatum has been despatched to Mandaiay, telegrams from various persons urging the Burmese Government to submit cannot be transmitted owing to the inter- ruption of the telegraphic communication between Hangoon and Mandalay. Air. Kimber has received he following reply:- India Office, Oct. 24. Sir.-In reply to your letter dated the 21st nst., I am directed by the Secretary of State for .ndia to inform you that the temporary interrup- tion of telegraphic communication between the British frontier and Mandalay has ceased, and that the messages, therefore, to which you allude in your letter under reply have doubtless been duly transmitted to Mandalay.—I am. sir, your obedient servant, DANVERS, "Secretary Public Works Department."
