INDIAN TROOPS FOR EGYPT. The Calcutta correspondent of the Times says that public feeling in India has been excited to an intense pitch of expectancy in view of the existing critical condition of affairs in Egypt. The Indian Govern- ment is said to be keenly alive to Indian interests in the matter, and is anxiously waiting on English policy. Orders have been received from England directing the military authorities to be in readiness to despatch I. an expeditionary force to Egypt to co-operate with an expeditionary force from England. The Indian Government, accordingly, will, upon receipt of tele- graphic instructions, despatch from Bombay a force of all arms of 10,000 men, fully equipped, with trans. port carriage and Commissariat supplies. Orders have been issued to commanding officers of certain regiments to hold themselves in readiness for embarkation, and to commanding officers of these regiments which stand on the roster for foreign service to be prepared to start at a moment's notice. Steamers in Bombay and at Cal- cutta are declining freight in view of the pending pro bability of the despatch of an expeditionary force. The Bombay Government have obtained a list of all steamers available for immediate transport. It has been pointed out by the press that an Egyptian cam- paign would be hailed with the liveliest satisfaction by the native Indian troops, and that these troops are far more suited than European troops to undertake a summer campaign in Egypt. Morever, the Indian light cavalry would be invaluable for patrolling pur- poses if it were considered necessary to adopt military precautionary measures to prevent injury to the banks of the Canal. It is generally believed here that the troops which accomplished the famous march from Cabul to Candahar would have very little trouble in settling the warlike aspect of the Egyptian question if a resort to force were deemed essential by the Con- ference.
