Uncertainty respecting the settlement of the Turco-Egyptian question still exists.
The Sultan's recognitisn of Admiral STOP.. FORD'S treaty has not been announced ; and his strong dislike of the terms of the NAPIER convention has given occasion to ques- tion his disposition to accede even to the subsequent arrangement. MEI:mars Am is said to be preparing for the worst ; and in case the Porte should persist in deposing him, intends to retire into Upper Egypt, there to make a stand with the remainder of his troops. To such an extremity, however, he can scarcely be driven. The Allied Powers—England at least—cannot well disavow Ad- miral Syorroan's treaty ; and should Russia back the Porte in her obduracy, nothing effectual can be done without the naval power of England.
