THE FRANCO-CHINESE TROUBLE.
The news we gave5 in a note the
other day, about the resignation of
General Campcnon as French Min
ister of War, was incoircct in the
cause assigned. A despatch in an
Australian paper was the source Of
'our intoimation. Instead of Cam
pcnon lcsiguiug because the Ministry
refused to send lciuforcements to
Tonquin, the cause of variance was
the Ministry's peisistenco in the
Tonquin invasion contraty to the
Minister of War's advice. Prime
Minister Perry, in answer to an
interrogation in the Chamber of
Deputies on Jan. 11th. is reported
" He (Campcnon) contended that
the task would prove unprofitable
and unworthy the republic, which
could not, he argued, afford to
spare 20,000 hrench soldicis, essen
tial to the success of the enterprise,
in view of the European situation
and the pressing necessity of the
more perfect mobilization of the
army in Trace. General Cam
penon's idea was that the mobiliza
tion was the immediate and supreme
duty of the hour, and it should at
once be undertaken with a view of
giving the republic an available
military strength of 15,000,000 men.
General Lcwal of. the Seventeenth
Army Corps, who commanded the
Rhine army during the l'ranco
Gcnnan war, and who was in thor
ough sympathy with Ferry's views,
was at once installed as General
Campenon's successor. Ferry went
bluntly to tho point at once. He
announced the Government intended
immediately to inciease its energies
in Tonquin, ami would not stop until
it occupied the entire country up to
the frontier of the Chinese Kinpiic.
This declaration produced a pro
found sensation, and was received
with cheeis and considerable disap
proval. Amone: the distinguished
visitors piescnt to hear the Minis
terial announcement was Prince
Hohenlohc, German Ambassador.
Feiry, continuing, said the opera
tions necessary to the proposed con
quest of Tonquin would in no wise
compromise the French military
strength at home or interfere with
the uccc&sary general mobilization.
hi saying this the Premier fortified
himself with the authority of Gen
eral Lcwal, than whom there could
bono military authoiity more res
pected by Fiance. There were
25,000,000 men in the lcpuhlic, the
hest soldiers in the world, ready to
. march at a moment's notice in the
cause of France. It was impossible
to longer keep an army in Tonquin,
crouching idly like hunters, with
1 their eyes fixed upon a single point.
That was unworthy an ;trmy of
France. That army must be at woi k
1 and Touquin must be entirely oc--cupied.
Tho task was not dillicult;
. it would requite but an insignificant
,v mobilization. Ferry's speech, be
" sides producing a great sensation in
the chamber when delivered, has
astounded Parisians generally and
made them quite sciious. The gen
eral imprcsson that it has made may
i be described as bad; people discuss
. , . p ji ....I -i.il- i
it, as u mey (usiikcu to ue loiccti to
contemplate the probability of
trouble. After this the Chamber
adjourned until January 29th.
So France is, to use si vulgar
phrase, bound to ' go the whole
hog" in Tonquin. Nows from that
quarter in thu near fntuic jpay be
expected to be of an exciting. nature.

An article in the S. F. Cironicle
says if Congress docs not make pio
vision for the mail service, the Aus
tralasian line of steamers to Califor
nia will cease. It therefore urges
the importance of subsidizing the
line, and so preserving the increasing
American trade witlt the Colonics,
which is pushing European competi
tion hatd. It is remarkable to find
such solicitude for foreign trade in
a journal holding nothing but con
tempt for the lucrative Hawaiian
Tonnage statistics of the port of
San Francisco, inilw Bulletin of that
city, sho.w Hawaiian mailing vessel
tonnagh to stand sixth on the list of
all countries. If the- steamship
tonnage exclusively engaged in the
Hawaiian trade were added, Hawaii
would be third on the tonnage list,
Furope and Australia alone exceed
ing it. In passenger trailic, omit
ting China, that with Hawaii for
1S8 1 was only slightly exceeded by
that of British Columbia while the
Colonics were one thousand less.
General Sheridan, who recently
paid a visit to these Islands and was
treated with all kindnc3 and respect,
is reported in an interview with a San
Francisco Chronicle reporter to have
given his impressions of Hawaii as
follows : " It is a first-class place for
a person who wishes to got out of the
way of the press and its attaches and
wishes to be isolated from the lest of
the world for about two weeks, but it
is good for nothing else. There is
nothing there but the sugar interests,
and when they die out theic will not
be much left of the island kingdom."
His opiuion was that the proposed
treat' between America and Spain
would have the ultimate result of
knocking the " group of craters" in
the head. As usual with brief visi
tors, the General took away wrong
notions of leprosy treatment.
