AFFAIRS IN EGYPT. Writing from Alexandria on January 10th, the Daily News correspondent saysJudging by the number of teh grams received here this week in- quiring after the movements of Mr. Stephen Cave, the mission of this gentleman causes much more excitement in England than in Egypt. Mer- chants and bankers have been again and again requested to send news of Mr. Cave, and there has been nothing to send. This being the case, some people seem to have drawn upon their imagination for their facts, "net the rumour of & complete misunderstanding between the right hon. gentleman and the Khedive was industriously circulated. Mr. Cave was positively stated to have quitted Egypt, the very name of the steamer being given. This rumour was officially denied, and Mr. Cave's relations with the Khedive were stated to be perfectly satisfactory. That nothing unsatisfactory has occurred I am com- petently informed, and for this reason, that nothing has been done or suggested to cause a. difference of opinion. People do not gene- rally quarrel when being feted in regal style, and this is all our English friends have to complain of at present. In Egypt we "make haste slowly," and never do to-day what can be done to- morrow. You must not therefore be sur- prised that the finances of Egypt have not been remodelled in a fortnight—one must live in Egypt to look calmly at a question of this kind. As I telegraphed you a day or two since, Mr. Cave and Colonel Stokes are now inspect- ing the Suez Canal. From Cairo they pro- ceeded to Port Said without making any stay at Ismailia. M. de Lesseps has left Cairo for a time, and will be ready to receive the representa- tives of the 176,000 shares on their return to Lake Timsali. The reported advance of two millions sterling on the security of the Khedive's founder's shares appears not to be true, but if ever such an offer is made in earnest you may be certain it will not be declined. Italy is now anx- ious to have a fiuger in the Egyptian pie, and has sent over a senator and financier for this purpose. Signor Scialoga arrived by the last Brindisi steamer to con- clude a Treaty of Commerce between Italy and Egypt.
