EGYPT AND THE SOUDAN. SIR H. KITCIIBNBR TO TUB FROXT. Sir H. Kitchener, Sirdar of the Egyptian Army, with Major Wingate and SJatin Pasha, left Cairo on March 21 for the frontier. The Khedive has placed at the disposal of the Sirdar, for the Dongola expedi- tion, 60 men of his own dromedary corps. The acquisition of the fertile province of Dongola, which, even under the maladministration that prevailed before the abandonment of the Soudan, yielded a surplus revenue, will increase the wealth of EevDt. AKASIIEH OCCUMEo. An advanced column of the Dongola expeditionary force under Major Collinson occupied Akasheh an Friday of last week, meeting with np opposition. Supplies are being pushed forward to Akasheh, and i fort is being constructed there. The Sirdar,' with his staff and the 1st Battalion of the North Staffordshire Regiment, arrived at Balliann an March 23, and started for Assuan the lame night. Troops are being pushed to the front as rapidly as possible, but once across the frontier progress will be less rapid, as the Sirdar's, plan is to advance gradually, after establishing strong defensive positions, so as to maintain a perfect line of communication with Egypt. The Commissioners, of the Caisse of the Public Debt met in Cairo on March 23 to consider the question of advancing a portion of the reserve fund for the purposes of the Dongola expedition, but in consequence of the illness of the German representative the meeting was adjourned. The Italian Premier and several of his colleagues conferred in Rome on Sunday on the! subject of the Egyptian advance to Dongola.
