THE EXI'COITION TO KOYl'T.
NEW YOUK , July 23. A London
cable sayt : The decision of the government
ornmont to ound an expedition to
Egypt is understood to bo due , firstly ,
to the energetic representations of
Admiral Soyuiour ; secondly , to the
private assurances from Constantinople
plo that the hultan refused to solid
troops to Egypt ; thirdly , to thn sudden
don change of front of the French
ministry , M. do Freycinet adopting
Qambotta'a policy , coupled with
declarations that other European
powers will assent in the joint occu
pation. Tho'otuadily increasing ] res
sum of English public opinion counts
for something. The conservatives are
making headwuy with tbo charges of u
want of foresight and protected delay
in accepting the inevitable duty to re
store order in Euypf , and the nttucks
of the radicals uro incessant. Arabi ,
as chief of the national party , is
broken down. Everybody nowr re
gards him as

who sees Egypt in the hands of puiely
military chiefs. Arabi's procluma
tions , though received since the expedition
dition was resolved on , silence his few
English partisans , oven thosu who defend
fond his barbarities. It is not now
believed any European force will roach
Alexandria under a fortnight. Diplo
mat io difficulties are completely
smoothed away , but the military is
still unready. Gen. Garnet Wolsoloy'a
rionds say that tie accepts the com
mand of the Ej-'j plain expedition with
reluctance , desiring to reserve himself
for European warfare. Bo considers
the most favorable moment for crush
ing Arabi was lost from , the troops nol

Asphalt blocks 12x4 and 5 require

yard $1.80. The price has varied in

heavy travel it now shows considera
wear on tlio edges of the blocks ,

WAMUINOTON , July 23. The flecoad' '
ionforonco on the legislative bill wan-
lold yesterday and nil but two or-
.hreooC tlio nmcndmonta agreed to ,
Hid the report closing up this bill \ritt
30 submitted to-morrow.
The deficiency bill is still in con-
crcnco , the amendment giving sona-
ors mileage for the special sessions
boini ; the only point of difference.
The couforonco committee on the
river and hnrbor bill failed to agree
yesterday and adjourned till Tuesday ,
'hero is inuoh comment in congros-
ionnl circles on the action of the proa-
dent ntid his cabinet regardiog the
ivor nntl harbor bill. A special mooting
was hold ytatortlay for that purpose ,
i'lio frioiuh of the bill regard it na
lomuwhat ronmrkablo that it ahould
w given out olllcially that the cabinet
s considering the question whether5
ho president should vote n bill which
iaa not yet boun passed by conprcas ,
iid Unit this nhould occur nt a time
vlion the bill is before a conference
ommittiio. It ia intinmtod by the
riendn of the meaiuro that thia courao
> f the president and his cabinet
lus been taken to frighten congress
nto cutting down the appropriations ,
flio only nppr < priations rfhich can bo
ouched by congress nro the ituma in-
ortod by the Donate. The most 1m-
> ortnnt of tlieso itomanro nn uddition-
,1 appropriation of § 877,000 for the
Mississippi below Cairo , ? 100,000 for
ho survey of the Ilotmopin canal and.
8500,000 for the reclaiming of the
1'otomaa lints. The prospect is that
all tlioso amendments will bo stricken
out , although the friends of each will
uako a hard fight.
T1IK WOllK AA1CAD.
The senate has atill the revenue ,
mvnl and sundry civil appropriation
billa to dispose of , besides three ap
propriation bills in conference , ono of
.vliich the houses differ widoly. The
loiiflo will have leisure to consider the
revenue bill unless it prefers to take
up some businosa on the ailander ,
which comprisua upwards of a thous
and bills. The District of Columbia
committco will not insist on its rights
andor the rules to the floor of the
house to-morrow. Partism hostility
to Mahono will probably defeat hia
eight cent tobacco amendment in
the senate , but it may be put on in the
house. Sugar and Boasimor Stool
amendments arc likely to bo the only
material amendments to the bill.
About ono hundred amendments to
the : sundry civil bill are awaiting ita
appearance in the senate. The
