India-Board, January 13, 1819.

A DISPATCH has been received at the East India-House, from General the Marquess of Hastings, K. G. and G. C. B. Governor General and Commander in Chief of the Forces in the East-Indies, dated Goruckpore, 20th June 1818, of which the following is an extract.

Bajee Row having submitted and placed himself in the hands of Brigadier-General Sir John Malcolm, I have the honour to congratulate you on the termination of what still bore a lingering character of


The troops with which Bajee Row had crossed the Tapty were completely surrounded. He found progress towards Gwalior impracticable, retreat as much so, and opposition to the British force altogether hopeless; so that any terms granted to him under such circumstances were purely gratuitous and only referable to that humanity which it was felt your Honourable Court would be desirous should be shewn to an exhausted foe.

The ability with which Brigadier-General Sir John-Malcolm first secured the passes of the hills, and then advanced to confine Bajee Row in front,

while Brigadier-General Doveton closed upon him from the rear, will not fail to be applauded by your Honourable Court; nor will you less estimate the moderation with which Sir John Malcolm held forth assurance of liberal and decorous treatment, even to an enemy stained with profligate treachery, when that enemy could no longer make resistance.

Bajee Row is to reside as a private individual in some city within your antient possessions, probably Benares, enjoying an allowance suited to a person of high birth, but without other pretensions.

A dispatch has also been received from the Government of Fort St. George, dated 12th August 1818, of which dispatch and of its inclosures, the following are extracts and copies.

Extract from a Dispatch from Mr. Strachey, Chief Secretary to the Government of Fort St George, to the Secretary to the East India Company, dated 12th August 1818.

I AM directed to transmit to you a copy of a letter reporting that the fortress of Manowlie and the district of Chuckorie, have been delivered up to Brigadier-General Munro, and copies of accounts of the operations of the force under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel Macdowell, against the fortress of Malligaum, and of its surrender* to that officer.

By the accompanying dispatch from the Resident at Poona, the Honourable the Secret Committee will have the satisfaction of learning that the war in the Peishwab's late dominions has been terminated by the surrender of the Fort of Moolheir.

The surrender of Malligaum was notified in the Gazette of 28th November 1916, page 2121.
