hiiril fighting oa tho Pamir frontier be
tween Urltlsk Indian troops and tribes
men claiming to be under Russian pro
tection, In which Colonel Durand, Brit
ish Military Agent .at GUglt, Captain
Aylmor and Lieutenant Badcock were
severely wounded, Lteutonant Gorton
and several other officers slightly
woundod, and seven Sepoys killed and
The Incidents leading up to this ap
peal to urius are as follows; At Gilglt
Is a British agency, garrisoned by some
Knshmlrees and Indian Qhoorkas and
n battery of artillery. The trlbesmon
of lluu.a and Nagar, two towns oa tho
Htver Indus, have for some time' been
threatening the Cbalt fort, held by a
detachment o' Knsliinlroo.
This causod Col. Durand to make an
advance upon the Chnlt fort for' the
purpose of re-enforcing the garrison.
This ndvauce of lirltlsh troop was
made early In tho present mjntii, for,
on Nov. 211 Col. Durand wired tho Com-mauiler-ln-
Chief that he should move
upon tho enemy on D10. 2 unless he was
previously attacked by the trlbesmon,
who were reported to be assembling la
large numbers and to have beea insti
gated iu their notion by tho Russians.
Colonel Durand also telegraphed the
same day that ho feared that a, serious
conflict was Inevitable, although he had
done everything possible to prevent It.
On arriving in tho violnlty of Fort
Chalt It is presumed that Colonel
Durand and tho attacking forces
found the enemy In occupation, for the
dispatches fail to refer to what had be
come of tbeKashmirce garrison, known
to have been there. Colonel Durand
decided to carry the fort by storm, j
Captain Aylmer most gallantly led the
storming party, currying a gun cotton
petard, aud, In the face of a hot Ore of
musketry, dashed up to the iron bound
gate, allixed the petard to It, lighted
the fuse and retired.
The next moment Captain Aylmer saw
that the potard had blown the gate of
the fort to ptoces. Captain Aylmer and
Lieutenants Boisragou and Uadoock,
followed by a haudf ul of Sepoys, then
made a dash into tho fort and, after
some desperate lighting, ciipturoil a field
gun which had been used effectively
against the attacking party. The Brit
ish officers and Sepoys also captured
ulne prisoners, the remainder of tho
rebel tribesmen fleolng, leaving a num
ber of dead inside and outside the fort.
Theso alarming reports caused con
siderable excitement and comment
when they became known at the mili
tary and naval clubs throughout the
city. Old and experienced Indian
officers regard the outbreak of hostili
ties botwoen England and Russia as a
very grave affair uud the most alarming
news recoivod from India slace the In
dian mutiny. The younger officers are
elated at tho chance of seeing active
service, and are loud in their expression
of hope that the long expected war with
Russia is actually on tho tapis.
A cabinet council hns been summoued,
the purpose, being, it is understood, to
discuss the Eastern situation as modi
fied by the battle.

Boston, Dec 12. Henry
cross ot bomervllle, who condurted a
note brokerage In this city, has been
missing since the middle ot last week.
Now York detecttves identify him as
the mysterious personage who threw
a bomb in Russell Sage's office in New
York last Friday with such deadly of-
feet. The officers havo In their posses
sion a trousers' button nnd portion of
tho trousers worn by the bomb thrower,
ns well as a piece of his coat and por
tions ot his underclothing.
These articlos wero takon to the Nor-
cross residence In Bomervllle in the af
ternoon, where the underclothing was
positively identified by Mrs. Norcross as
belonging to her husband. Ibo trousers of
tho dead dynamiter were stamped
"Brooks, tnilor, Boston." Mr. Brooks
was visited by the officers anil shown
the fragments of cloth. After a careful
examination ho stated positively that
ho had made for Heury L. Norcross a
coot ot tho cloth presented and also n
pair of trousers of the samo cloth as tho
other p.eco furnished by the dotcctlvos.
The button lie also identified as one pe
culiar tn his establishment.
There was a terrible sceuu at the home
ot the young broker when tho fact of
his terrible crime and death was made
plain to tho father nnd mother, who
have been anxiously awaiting his re
turn from n supposed business trip.
Mis. Norcross was prostrated by tho
shock and her husband acted ns though
stunned by the blow. After ho hnd ud -
mltted the strong resemblance which
the fragments bore to his son's clothing,
and wheu ho hud compared a photo
graph ot his son with the photograph of
tho dead man's head thero seemed to be
no further room for doubt.
He said '.hnt his son had had no sick
ness, ni ; i, 11- showed any signs or In

that U would provo untrue. He said
that Henry left home Thursday, osten
sibly to go to 1'iovlilenco on business.
He had not returned, and his contin
ued absence bad already begun to cause
much anxiety when the news of his
supposed connection with the bomb
throwing case was brought to the
He had begun to fear that his son
had been killed by tho railway accident
on the New York cc bow hugland Hall
road, which occurred on the same day
as the New York trngedy.
Heury L. Norcross, tho dynamiter
was about 23 or 2P years old. He grad
uated from the bonierviile high school
about five years ugo, since which time
he has conducted a noto brokerage
business at No. 12 Pearl street, this
city. There is no doubt but that Nor
cross has been missing since tho day
before the attempt ou the life ot Russell
Sage, ami this, tnken in connection
with the identification of the fragments
of clothing and underclothing, would
Indicate that Norcross was the man
who startled the world with his insane
scheme ot forcing a vast sum of money
from Russell bage.
SAYS THERE IS NO DOUBT.

tlou of Norcross was made complete at
midnight at the Morgue by Herbert M,
Howes, of Summer street, Soiuerville.
Mr. Howes was a schoolmate of th
dead 111 nil.
Mr, Howes declared that Norcross
hand could nover have thrown the dy
namite which shattered Mr. aago's of
lice. It was therefore with roluctunce
that ho undertook to compare dellbor
atoly the features of tho bomb-tbrowor
with the likeness of his friend whloh
he carried in his hand. After an hour's
patient examination Mr. Howes was
conviuced that the romutus were those
of Henry L. Norcross.
