VW.SELEY'S MASTERLY MOVE.
i ,c Egyptian campaign may now

:'iu masterly manner in which
011. Wolseley concealed his designs
' not only from the enemy but even
fr. 'ii his onn men, and alone stroke
tir inferred his base of operations
fr .ni, Alexandria to Isinailia, de--u'Jes
liigh praise. While even his
oi 'i ofllciirs supposed that lie intend
eii to bombard Fort Aboukir, and to
In 1 ii division east of it to turn
.A.i.hi's right Hank, he was on his
t.'j lo the S.iez Canal. To mask
t' movement the fleet threw some
hrl'. into Aboukir, while the land
foico made a leint fiom Hamleh on
the afternoon of the 10th. Early
the nest morning (the 20th) the
Kiilors and marines from the fleet in
tin: Suez Canal seized Port Said at
the north end and Isinailia on Lake
Timnh at the middle of the Canal,
vhile a detachment of Highlanders
and niai iuc.s from Sue ataeked and
r ' te i Arabi's force at Shaiicf, 11
jn , north of Suez, and denied thu
rnilroid ti Isinailia. In twenty-four
liours the whole canal and its banks
was in the power of the English.
During the afternoon of the same
day the licet from Alexandria enter
ed' the Canal with Gen. AVolselcy
and the firht division of his army on
boaid. One of the transports was
loaded with rails, cars and loeomo
tiven for the railway from Isinailia
to Cairo. The Indian contingent,
which includes three regiments of
cavalry, was arriving during the
week. Thr rapidity and eeerecy
with whi'-h this whole movement was
exi-culcd forestalled any attempt
ai'ios; the Caiial by Arabi as well as
r.tiy hindrances that might have been
interposed by European ciiplotnacy.
The ttrategio adautagcs of this
change of base mc o'.ivious. In con
nection with the blockade of the
coast it isolates Arabi from his allies
in Tirk.y and elsewnore, while it
outllauUs his position at Kefr ed-D.-n.ar,
and (.pens the most direct
and easy route to Cairo to the Eng

liesi !es the rising of the Nile,
which K now taking place, will lay
nut of the country between Alex
andria and Cairo under water. The
di.'iance by rail is lit 1 miles. No
'season could be chosen moie nn
"f titrable for military operations in
Egypt than the months of September
('ii the other hand the railway
froi.i lsmailia to Cairo passes for
about 20 miles through the desert,
and in fact it runs near the bound
ary between the desert and the green
plain of the Delta the rest of the
way. The distance by rail is just
10U miles. The freshwater canal
from the Nile, which supplies the
towns on the hue. Canal, aeeom
panics the railway a shoit distance
As it is, fiO feet wide and 7 feet deep
on an average, it will be of great use
in transporting heavy guns and sup
plies. Cairo is the. key of the situa
tion. This is duo not only to its irn-
pori'mco as the seat of Government
and uii' great centre of .Mohammedan
learning and literature, containing a
population of at leabt '100,000 souls,
but also to its geographical position.
It is situated exactly at thu apex of
the Delta, where the Nile Valley be
gins, (here only 8 niiles wido), on
the dividing lino bctwecu tho Delta
and Upper Egypt, and lineb of rail
way radi&te from it to Alexandria,
Damictta and Isinailia. It is, how
ever, at the mercy of any invader
who can hold the Mokattani Hills on
the southeast, as the' completely
command the city and its citadel.
General Wolseley is then entirely
correct in making Cairo his "objec
tive point." Such has been his
energy that in les3 than a. week ho
transferred his base of operations
from Alexandria to Isinailia, where
he found himself master of the whole
canal, twice defeated the enemy and
advanced 18 miles on the road to
On the 2-Uli his advanced guard of
about 2,000 men with two field
pieces held at bay 10,000 Egyptians
with twelve guns at a point 10 miles
west of Isinailia, between Magfar
and Tell el-Mashuta, losing only 1!)
men killed and wounded. The
Egyptians retreated during the night.
The next day (the 25th) the English
cavalry attacked their icar at the
Slahsameh station, 18 miles from
lsmailia, and routed them, capturing
live Krupp cannon and seventy-five
railway carriages loaded with am
munition and supplies. This last
was a serious loss to Arabi, and will
be of great service lo the English
army in bringing up supplies from
Isinailia, as they seem to have been
in want of rolling stock for the road.
Arabi is massing men and in
trenching at Tel el Ivebir, 31 niiles
from Isinailia. but it is probable
that a decisive battle will be fought
near Zagazig, which is an important
railroad centre, and a town of -10,000
inhabitants, -18 miles from lsmailia.
A decisive victory there would
probably settle the fate of Cairo and
of the campaign.
