FRIDAY, AUGUST 4, i882.
THE 8ID&7 OF THE mm TROUBLES,
While the ancient history of Egypt
is read every Sunday in the churches
the modern history of the land of
the Pharoahs absorbs n great deal of
attention on week days. It may be
said of x.gypt, as of Holgium,
Tinker, and Ireland, that the in
terest it excites nud the strife about
it, arc out of all proportion to the
size nud the importance of the
country itself. In each instance the
anomaly is due to a great extent to
geographical position. The Europe
an, and more especially the English,
interest in Egypt is cxplaiuod bj the
circumstance that the country in
question commands the traffic l outu
between East and West.
The situation as regards Egypt
has been slowly evolved, and it is
still developing. Modern history
commences when Napoleon landed
with an army in 17H8, and rudely
shook the old Turkish Mameluke
Bystem of the day. His invasion
was a mere unscrupulous aggicssion.
There was no excuse for the intru
sion. The French avowedly went to
Egypt for glory, and they were by
no means successful in the pursuit.
Whatever were the faults of the
Mameluke aristocracy, it could at
least conduct an implacable fight.
In the field personal valor was of no
avail against the superior arms and
the scientific tactics of the French
and of the great French General.
The battles of the Pyramids and of
Abo-Kir wero mere butcheries -so
far as the Egyptians were concerned,
but the resistance was maintained in
the country. The French held
nothing beyond the lange of their
cannon. With the destruction of
the French fleet by Nelson near the
mouth of the Nile, Napoleon saw
that the game was played out, and
returned to France, leaving Klcber
in command. Kleber, one of the
most brilliant soldiers of a brilliant
period, gained more victories. He
routed -with tenific slaughter the
Mameluke army of 70,000 men at
Heliopolis, but when hi) was away
from Cairo there was rioting in the
capital, and when he returned to
Cairo ho was slabbed to the heart by
a fanatic. In this spirit the stiugglc
was continued. The resistance of
the population induced the British
Government to undertake the expul
sion of the French, und the history
of the force despatched under Sir
Ralph Abercromby is one of the
most glorious in our military annals.
The British occupatiou lastod
several years, and it was at this
period that General Braid, with a
Sepoy force, lauded from India,
The history of the French expedi
tion is instructive to this day. It
shows that an invader runs the
chance of arousing a fierce fanati
cism amongst iho Mahomedans,
more especially among the Bedouin
tribes, and it is a fair argument in
favor of the policy which England
hss, on the whole, advocated, and
which the Earl of Beaconbficld
sought to put in practice, that Egypt
should bo governed as are the large
native states of India, namely, by a
protected native ruler. It may be
urged that this policy was tried and
failed in the person of the present
Khedive, . Tew ilk. But it broke
down, apparently, because no assis
tance was given to Tcwfik. As the
nomiuce of England and of France
he was required to carry out a policy
of retrenchment and of dismissals
and of European appointments which
could not bo popular, and this by
bis own strength of will, without the
aid of a penny or a soldier. If
Tcwfik had had 10,000 European
troops at his call when Arabi Pasha
began his career of aggression his
attitude might have been very differ
ent to what it was. The Earl of
Beaconsflcld established the protecto
rate, and Mr. Gladstone neglected
to afford the protection.
The British forces withdrew from
Egypt in the beginning of the cen
tury, without the country obtaining
auy advantago from the occupation.
Tbey arc Raid to have been jockeyed
in diplomacy by the French, who
obtained tho nomination of Moham
