An extraordinary and fatal 'accident has happened at Angers to the. Eleventh Regiment of Infantry—the very regiment about whose Socialist and insurrectionary spirit there has been flinch said in the pant fortnight.. As a battalion of this. regiment was massing. the wire, suspension-bridge' over the Loire, on their route to Algeria, the bridge-chains gave way, and the whole battalion was plunged into the deep, and raPiar-ffnw.ing; stream. The companies were marching with arms and baggage, ail with a crowd of women- and friends in attendance; and upwards of th,ree hundred are said to have perished, but at present authentic details arc wanting.

ITALY.—The French Government his received telegraphic dispatehei stating that Pope Pio Nono actually entered Rome on the 13th instant INDIA.—The Indian mail brings news from Bombay. to the 16th of March. The interesting matter still relates tçi the Kohal expeditien, and to the mutiny of the Sixty-sixth Bengal Native Infantry..

The expedition does not seem to have been left in the unfinished stele Intimated by the last advices, which led one to suppose that the mountain- passes were still occupied with a view to renewed operations. What the British aimed at was accomplished, but the cost was as serious as we have already explained. Our force was nearly 6,000, including 3,400 picked men; while the Affreedie force was never greater than 500 regular fight- ers. No military criticism arises, and the only question suggested con- cerns the adequacy of the motive for the expedition, and its probable re- sults; matters not ripe for the public judgment. In the mutiny affair, Sir Charles Napier has acted with his usual-energy and rapidity. In a general order he says- " The mutineers of the Sixty-sixth have brought down disgrace and ruin upon the regiment." "When a mutinous corps has endeavoured to seize a fortress which a confiding Government believed it had intrusted to faithful soldiers it is time that vengeance should fall." The regiment is to be marched to Umballa, "and there struck off from the service of the Honour- able East India Company " ; and the colours of the Sixty-sixth are to be "delivered over to the brave and loyal men of the Nusseeree Battalion," who in future shall be denominated the Ghooska Regiment. The conduct of the officers is criticized. Lieutenant-Colonel Bradford was deddasl and judicious: Captain Macdonald was prompt, decided, and reso- lute; his conduct prevented the fort falling into the lands of the mutineers. The conduct of Lieutenant Barker was so unsatisfactory that he is ordered into arreat, to be tried by court-martial for not doing his duty. Major Troup is at once praised and severely condemned : when the regiment mutinied,

his conduct was 'cool, resolute, and deserving of the highest praise " ; but Major Troup disobeyed distinct and positive orders, which left him nqlaii-

tude of discretion, in not personally, or through his interpreter, explaining,

the Commander-in-chiefs orders recieved at Lueknow in 1849, "to prepare the minds of the men for the just and necessary cessation of a temporary

allowance granted to the troops during the war.' Ile left it to a Sergeant- Major to explain to the Sepoys, through the orderly Havildars, "one of the raost important and critical orders ever issued, which the Commander-in-

chief had specially directed to be carefully explained by commanding-officers

to their regiments." The Commander-in-chief "publicly expresses his un- qualified dissatisfaction" at this conduct ; ejaculating—" Truly, this shows a laxity of discipline that is enough to destroy the best army in the world." He lays down new and stringent regulations, which will prevent or ex- pose and punish, any repetition of such laxity in future. He takes the opportunity to express his fervent hope that the young European officers of the Indian army, "who are full of ability, teat and good feeling towards the Natives, will see the necessity of endeavouring to associate as much as possible with the Native officers, and make them their comrades in every sense of the word. It is thus, alone, that the European officer can expect to acquire a thorough knowledge of what gasses in his regiment, and of the

feelings which exist among those under his command. It is not through Sergeant-Majors and orderly Havildars that the Sepoy is to learn the justice, the generosity, and the care foe his welfare, which are exercised by his Go- vernment: these things he must learn direct from his European officers." •

There have been some slight disturbances on the Assam frontier. A tribe called the Nagas have burned the provision-stores of a detachment of Sepoys, and so for the time, driven the British out of their hills. One of tho drying-houses at the Madras powder-mills blew up on the 14th of March, killing four men and wounding others. The cause of the accident is unknown.
