The disturbance was ultimately suppressed, the military being called out, when order was restored. Alexandria, June 12.

Enquiries which have been made into the cause of the emeute which occurred in this city on the evening of the roth inst., have elucidated the fact that it originated from a street quarrel between a Greek and an Egyptian, and owing to the 'Strong ill-feeling prevalent in the city against the European residents, the natives attacked some of the latter who were present, and the disturbance increased until it was found necessary to call out the military. The statement that the British Consul was seriously wounded during the emeute is fully confirmed, and it has been ascertained that the Italian Consul was also wounded, and that twenty persons were killed on the occasion.

The recent disturbances in this city lasted for several hours. During that lime the shops of many Europeans were attacked and pillaged, and the occupants maltreated.
