A MILITARY VIEW OF AN ENGLISH LANDING IN EGYPT. The Alexandria Correspondent of The Times was informed lately by "a high foreign military authority that, after careful study of the country and its military resources, he was of opinion that no practical resistance could be offered to English troops. A landing at Aboukir would either be unopposed or, if opposed, would leave Alexandria open to the fleets. Arabi would, it is believed, not attempt to defend Alexandria, but would retreat to Cairo. This could be readily prevented. Five thousand men landing from each side could seize the railway and shut Arabi in Alexandria, the entire garrison, including police, not exceeding 10,000 men. The easy destruction of the forts, which could be effected by two ships alone of the fleet within twenty minutes, would spread such consternation that Arabi would be delivered a prisoner by his own troops.
