  On the 13th March, the rebel chief Goesti Hasan (Pangeram Teea), who was thought to be dead, was delivered a prisoner to the hands of the authorities at Margasarive. Two natives who had formerly housed this rebel, and who are now in fear that the Government would punish them for so doing, had found his hiding place, and delivered him to the authorities.  Though he was latterly without any followers, his arrest, taking the great influence he had on the inhabitants, may be considered of very great importance.  As he was not included in the amnesty proclaimed in 1862, he will be brought before a court-martial, together with the notorious rebel Sultan Korning alias  Sambang.
