There are contradictory accounts from Syria respecting

the rebellion of the Druses. One statement is that IBRA- HAM PACHA was defeated in the first defiles of Havoran, with the loss of 6,000 or 10,000 men; and that the insurrection was daily becoming more serious. According to a subsequent ru- mour, the Druses bad been almost annihilated by the Egyptian army.
