Monday 23rd February 1846

“Settled with gang by daylight first time this year. Quarter before 10 o’clock this night the Park and Tower guns commenced firing in quick succession for upwards of a quarter of an hour. The cause thereof to us unknown. Express extraordinary arrived from India in which is stated that a long and severe engagement has taken place between the natives and the British, which is reported as yet is somewhat in favour of the latter. Great slaughter both sides. Many English officers killed among which is General Sale.”
