The Afghans are inuch alaruied by thii forward movement of the RusBians and exliibit anxiety lest the Russiansmay take possession of the pass and marcli on Herat. They are d termined, however, to oppose any further advances by the Russlans , with all' the force at their command, and sbould the Russiaus persist in their course a bloody conflict eanriot much longer be avoided.
