KOYJT. o The viowB of Mr. Simon Wolf , re- 3iitly United States consul-general in ijjypt concerning the present condi- : on of affairs in that country are inoly and interesting. In a lengthy f rtiolo in a Washington paper Mr. Volfsays : The national party con- ats of the learned class , Miibaul- tana , who speak Arabia and have cen educated at Azhar university nnd . thor schools ; the Arab or Egyptian nerolmulB and shop-keepers , with few xn-ptions ; the artisans , the village loiks and their representatives in par- ainent , the Coptic Christianstho , ttriny xcopting n few Circamian officers ; 10 Sum !

" I'lio mass of ie actual laborers , " eays Mr. Wolf , are probably like the laborers of Eu- -indifferenttopolitics but when loft Egypt thorp acemod to bo a rowing idea with them that Arabi would in seine way relieve them from 10 debts in which they are involved nd from the remnant of tyranny ioy still complain of at the hands of tfudira. They all dolest the TurkB , iut regard Europeans well or ill ac- ording to the specimens of the class with whom they have come in con- . act. Thu true Uedouins of the desert mvo little sympathy with the fella- loon or with town politics. They rould join the army in time of war , s ut would not serve in time of peace. " OITOSED TO TUB NATIONAL I'AHTY ro the viceregal family of Moham ! med All and their personal adherents ; io Circassians , about 16,000 in uum- bor ; the OrcekB the financiers and moneylenders of Eaypt about (10- ( , QUO in number ; the Syrian Christians , nnd the Europeans. The Syrian Christians nro money-lenders , nnd of them Mr. Wolf Bays : "Their true position of power is as clerks and in. torproters to the European oftlcials of whom very few can speak Arabic , and to whom they have inado thorn- sulvca thus n necessity. They are the ncnoral retailers of news , supplying the European Con sulates and newspaper oom-Bpomlents with intelligence , and serving the speculators on the stock exchange by tipnnding sensational reports , Thu European community , " ho says , "may bo roughly divided as follows. Itnli- mis , 14,000 ; French , 14,000 ; Austrian and Gurmnna , 3,500 ; English , ! 1 fiOO ; other nationalities , 1,000 ; total , ilfl , . 500. The Europeans are , cpi'.ikiiig generally , violent opponents of the national party. The French are , al most without exception , speculators in Egyptian stocks , and they compUin of the revolution as having caused them financial losses.

" In Mr. WuH'a opinion , ' ARA11I I'ASHA H nn honest , and , certainly from nn jj ! > yptinn standpoint , a highly edu cated and iniolligont man. lie fully predates his position. Says Mr Wolf : "Ho has calculated the cost , aid : will not shrink from the ronpinvri- lility. Ho knows all about the United jtatrs , its history and struggles , nnd old me repeatedly that his duairo was o have a constitutional form of gov ernment.

THE KHEDIVE , For whom I have the highest respect , a mild-mannered man , ono who moans well , but lacks force and do- formation. Having boon created by England and France , he , of course , IB under thuir influence , especially that of England , and therefore thu na tional leaders distrust and shun him. The Shoika are in full sympathy with Arabi , nnd not vith the Khedive.
