DISPATCHES have been received at the East India-House, from the Governor-General in Council, at Fort William, with inclosures, of which the following are extracts and copies:

Extract from a Letter from the Governor-General in Council to the Secret Committee of the Court of Directors, dated Fort William, 26th April 1824.

WE have much satisfaction in reporting the success which has attended our operations against Assam. After considerable delays, occasioned by the difficulty in procuring boats and supplies, Brigadier M“Morine moved forward with the force under his command, consisting of the Rungpore light infantry, Chumparum ditto, and Dinagepore local battalion, with the flotilla of gun-boats, on the 22d ultimo, and reached Gowahati, the capital of Camroop, on the western division of Assam, on the 28th ultimo, without experiencing the slightest resistance, notwithstanding the strength of several of the enemy's positions, and the natural difficulties of the country.

The Agent to the Governor-General, Mr. Scott,

Copy of a Report from Captain Noton to the Major of Brigade at Chittagong, dated Camp, Ramoo,” 11th May 1824.

SIR,

ON the 9th instant, a naik, from the Rutnapullung stockade, came in with a Bengallee villager, stating that the latter had seen the enemy advancing upon Rutnapullung, with four Chiefs and about one hundred and fifty men, wishing to megociate, which the naik also stated to be the case. Conceiving this to be some design of the enemy to put the Jemadar off his guard, and thereby more easily gain possession of the stockade, I determined
