General Wolseley teleT6phs from Ismailia , .
at 1:40 o'clock this morning aa follows: ' "
" I havo Just received news Irom the front
that General Graham wa3 heavily attacked last
evening by a large force of Egyptians. British
cavalry from Mau-auieh went to his assist
ance, and he has had a brilliant success, tat- .
ing- eleven Runs. Only a few; British soldiers
were killed, but over 100. were wounded. I am
Just about to proceed to theTront." : . "
An Ismailia dispatch of the ' 20th gives tho
following aoooqntof the fighting; - . - -
"When morning came great excitement pre-. ,
vailed in our camp ax Kasaasain in conse- .
quence of the Egyptians ehowinj themselves
in considerable force In various directions.'
General Graham presently sent Major Hart, '
with an escort of mounted infantry under
command, of Lieutenant Pigott, to ascertain
the strenclh and exact nosition of tho enemv.
Major Hart proceeded in the direction of Tel-el-Keblr,
aud hadgine,rv ird M$Q. miles
when tne enemy opened hro with two guns.
Lieutenant Pigott dismounted hia men and re- -
turned the fire briskly, his men holding their
ground well for some time, though eventually "
they were obliged to retire upou our camp. ,
At ten o'clock 4,000- Bedouins appoared on
oui right ' and front,1 extending'' two
miles,' but, ; oh the . guns .opening 'Ore
on them, they, retired. , About three o'clock
their infantry advanced in open order upon,
our left, bringing up several guns, which they
placed at a short distances from tach-other.
and presently showed several pieces ot artu- ,
lery on pur right. rOur guns .opened fire and
our men turned but to face tho attack. Tho
fight now waxedwtrrm, and durinsr tho whole
afternoon the gallant little garrison .made a
good defense.' Meanwhile the cavalry; which
was flve-mllfes In our rear; had been twice Big- ;
naled by General Graham to support him, and .
had advanced almost to our pos.t.on without .
encountering the enemy. By 7:30 p. m. the
whole forced consisting ofTho" First .and
Second Life Guards, the Horso Guards, the
Seventh Dragoons, part of tho Fourth -t
Dragoons, and the Nineteenth lussars, with '
four guns, set out to succor the . troops "
at Kassassin. The- march bad to ho
made very cautiously. , Tho moon was rising, .
and showed the littlo- army of horsemen to r
strange advantage 'as they : parsed over tho
shining ground, the clanking pf .their swords
swelling musically through tho air. , Colonel
Stewart, who directed the course of tho brig
ade, disposed of his men so excellently that
he was ablo to pilot them safely to the point of
contact without coming under the fire of .the
guns which were then pounding the Kassassin .
camp. He led tho way along the ridge .with
the ideaof outflanking the enemy and turning J
his position. ..Colonel Russell brought his men
over four miles of heavy ground, so that by
nine o'clock, when they silently halted on tho
Btav-Iine, they found themselves soclosoto the
Egyptians that the shells went over their heads
in quick succession, landing nearly half
a mile in their rear. From tho position
the cavalry had now gained they could see the
enemy close on the horizon in very large num
bers, whereupon Colonel ltuesell dismounted i
his cavalry and ordered them to open a sharp
musketry fire, but they found that the enemy -
was cicsor tnan tney nau anticipated, idch
Major-General Lowe dashed up and gave tho
words of command to "Mount," "Form in
line," mid " Charge." Scarcely had tho words
been uttered when the Household Cavalry and '
mngouus rup.uiy uiiu.veu mu uiuur,, tum mm
suppressed but ominous murmurs swept on to
meet the foe with "drawn sabers and stern de
termination. In a very few moments tho "
horsemen A charged tho enemy with great
bravery, and our gun? having by this time
ceased firing, mingled with tho Egyptians and
cut them up seriously. A general rout .
hereupon . ensued, Arabi's ' artillerymen '
infantry fell into - a disordered mass upon
the banks of the canal. A few dashed into .
the water to save themselves. It would bo '
difficult to imagine a more complete success
than was now seen, Tho bravery pf the cav
alry in thus grandly charging a blind position,
the strength of which it was impossible to tell,
rendered the eneiny alino3t panto stricken.
They fell back rapidly, nor is this tq bo won
dered at when the race between tho various
regiments of English cavalry is considered, in
which the Seventh Dragoon Guards exerted
"themselves beyond description to bo first, ply
ing their sabers with considerable alacrity. . : . . '
. In .this way our position at Kassassin was
relieved. ' Wo now command tho country lead .
tng to Telret-Kebir. , ;
i About ten o'clock; the cavalry came in in
high spirits over their brilliant achievement.
Manj were missing in the darkneBS, but they
will no doubt turn up in the morning. '

fl.ni tlu..tla olnilirnrlnt.1.1 ITnloira that
after the charge the ground was strewn with

i A correspondent describes the scene of the
cavalry charge at Kassassin Lock as follows: '
"I found two acres thickly strewn with corpses
of the enemy. Some-of our cavalry were still
'seeking our dead and wounded. Two dead Life
Guardsmen were so mutilated that ' they were T
quite unrecognizable, meir iaces were norn-
completely severed from the arm and the
otner hand nearly . so, and . one or . tne
eyes was scooped from the socket. The hands
of another body were Just hanging to. tho '
wrists by pioces of flesh and some sinews. A
wounded . guardsman relates that, in the
charge, his horse was shot, and, in falling,
broke the rider's thiglu While lying on the
field he saw Egyptian soldiers ride by. He
called for help, whereupon an Egyptian rode
up and . sabered the guardsman's face from
temple to chin. The man is now, however, ,
doing weiL The enemy's loss must have been
at least 400. r. ,
It has been learned from tho prisoners that
Arabi Pasha was present at the action Mon

The troops which attacked our forces did not
come from Kair-el-Dwar, but from Tel-el-Kebir.

l In the fight at Kassassin a majority of the
Egyptian Infantry fell on their faces to avoid
being . slashed by the Life-Guards' swords.
-JIany thus escaped who would otherwise have
been struck down. The corpses of tha Egyptians-
were spread over a milo and a half of

; to-day (W ednesday) says : "The scene was hor

most out of , semblance to humanity by the
long broadswords of the guards.. . One young
