GRAVITY OF THE FRENCH CRISIS-ENGLISH POLITICS. cameron ox mr. uladstonk's mncH?sol ir? ving's COMMKNTS ON AMERICA. [DT CABLK TO TUR TRIBUNE. J I.ondok, Nov. IO.?The Franco-Chinese situa? tion continues to be one of the utmost gravity, and not lees eo because tbe Ferry Ministry persist in Ignoring tbe probability of a serious conflict. Tho hopes arising from M. Cballeincl-Lacour's withdrawal from th* Foreign Office, and the belief that M. Ferry, as his successor, would bo more reasonable, have been dashed by tho Premier's declaration to The .Standard cor? respondent, expressing again and again contempt fur tbe military power of China, aud utter disbelief that China will resist France, and also infer against Chinese diplomacy, because it bas refused to make concessions to French domands. In the ?Matta*, Chinese telegrams convict M. Trie** ol falsehood in telegraphing that Li Hung Chang bad disavowed Marquis Tseng, whom tho Chinese Gov? ernment fully sustain. Li Hung Chang also denies bis alleged disapproval of tho course of Marquis Tseng. Tho European pi ess is filled with expres? sions of amazement at Premier Ferry's du? plicity, which remains without any attempt at apology, though tho French Ministerial pt?*n tail upon patriotic Frenchmen to believe their owu Government in preference to a foreigner. Gioundlcss rumors ofFiemh successes Iii Touquin have been set ulloat In l'aris during the week, hut are believed nowhere save in Paris, where credulity ie boundless. The credit of niuo million francs de? manded by the Munsters ii regarded here only as one more effort to belittle the seriousness of the enterprise to which France stands committed. " It is not among*." says un English paper, " to pay fol the coal of the transports." MBAMUCOUBM ORATORY. The Guildhall banquet, from which eo much was expected, produced only specchesabouiiduig in gen? eralities not particularly glittering. The uew Lord Mayor (Fowler) excited some ridicule by quoting Greek and Latin, but redeemed himself by th* cordiality of his welcome, thoagh ho is hlwciU a Tory, to Mr. Gladstone. M. Waddington'*epooch, which Mr. QladflCOM described as tho speech of the evening, contained little but vague assurances ii good will. Equally snucic and aneonipromieing was M. de Lesseps's declaration that he had come |0 laidland prepaied to anticipate the moonabie demands of Kiniii-.li nierchaiits. It is not regarded in the city as pledging him to one single Important concession. Mr. Gladstone's speech was admit and conciliatory but has occasion! d general complaint because it contained no disclosures of policy aud absolutely no indication of the programme <>f thc session be? yond an explicit denial of repeated newspaper assertions that everything will have to give way to the Franchise bill. There was a renewed pb ggfl *f a speedy withdrawal of a large portion of Eng? lish troops from Egypt, and this was received w !th marked disfavor by tho audience. There are re? newed protests this Morning from most of tho Jonr aa]* except th* Radical anea, Then ii nraeh dis content also with what people think au ex< i defence, on Mr. Gladstone's part, of Frau h susceptibilities, the inference including alike thc Madagascar incideut and the Suez Canal. His critics complain that ho has laid mon itreM on obtaining justice for Ireland than OB maintaining the union, avowing that the latter is conditional on tim former. Altogether the situation remains prac? tically unchanged by anything that was said or done yesterday. thk ikm:mi:m QUESTIOff. Interest in the question of housing the poor is kept fresh by numerous articles and sue. ches, thc papers iu London, Liverpool, and other great cities sending commissioners into squalid district*. Mr. Chamberlain is prompt to meet Lord Salisbury. Be announces an article on tbe same question in the next Fortnightly. His friends say that, far hom op? posing I/ird .Salisbury's proposals, he intends groat ly to enlargo the Mop* of the annuled scheme of state interference. Till: PAJiCKI.S POST. Mr. Fawcett's interesting speech on Thursday to his constituents at Hackney disappointed public expectation on the subject of tho Par? cels Post, which people are not dis? posed to regard as a success. Tho papers lately have contained numerous complaints against the working of the law, and positive predictions of a financial delicit which is estimated at half a million for tho first year. Mr. Fawcett tool bo no? tice of tho complaints and expressed a belief ia aa increase of the number of parcels. AMERICAN ELECTION'S AM) LAW. ThoAmericau elections excited little attention, even Butler's defeat passing almost in silent e. A long article in The timm, more cautious than usual, avoids predictions in regard to thoefl'ect of the eta tums on tho Presidency. Lord Chief Justice Coleridge's return and a re? ported conference of leading barristers gave rite to reports that he intended to propose reforms m legal practice and to abolish the distinction between bar? risters and solicitors. Tho former took alano. I hr Tint* pnblwhed a leader ridiculing the notion of theadoption of the American system and ?fearing tbe general superiority of tho English system. a great ooavugflnrr. Mr. Lowell has been nominated for Lord Rector of St. Andrews University. i, m^mmi, ?,?,,,?,.?,, and will probably be elected if becomes to stand. It ia.BcomplTOenttcafonigBw withontapreredeni.

The Athenaeum and J he Saturday Vm^ botli criticise Mr. Howells "A Woman's Reaeon," the former thinking the story hackneyed but flavored with humor. The .<aturdaM Jietnew, ,n a long attie, ?ays that Mr. Howell* first attempt to for,,, g definite plot is tedious aud is spoiled by straining after effect. It considers Mr. Howell* methods and ?tyle in a state of transition. UTKRAKY NOTUS. "Sam" Ward's Lyrical Recreations, embracing ?auy new pt****, i. J* mmmmm* as a pretty 1 volume by tho Macmillans, and is dedicated to Lord Rosebery. Mr. Ruskin's lecture at Oxford was a brilliant eulogy of Du Maurie* work iu Punch. MR. IRVING ON AMERICA. Tht Era publishes an interview with Mr. Irving expressing delight with the cordiality of his recep? tion and surprise at the extent of tho dramatic field in America that is unknown to English actors. Ho considers, the Star Theatre perfect in size aud shape, and perfect for seeing and hearing, as well as adapted to show an actor to tho host ad? vantage. Ho thinks American criticism on himself inclines to a friendly ostimate of bis failings and merits alike. He recognizes tho dignified treatment which ho has received from tho American papers, and pronounces the critical reviews to be most ably written. He specifies Mr. Winter's articles in Tuc TBIBtnni as specimens of admirable diction. Ho ls ?track by the fullness of tho accounts commonly given of the temper of an audience, tho appearance of the house, and the details of tho performance. Ho commends Mr. Lawrcnco Barrett's acting as I.anciotto. DRAMATIC NOTF.a. The Bancrofts announce tb* last ten nights of "Fedora." Tho production of Mr. Pinero's now piece will occur on tho 21th, including Miss Cal? houn tn a strong part. There was a brilliant performance in Parla OB Thursday for tho benefit af Madame Fargnoil. Sarah Bernhardt played the sleep-walking scene iTom "Macbeth"?a French version by Lacroix ? thrilling the audience with terror and admiration. C.. W. H. -?? BEBELS DEFEATED IN BESYIA. Yir.s\-\, Nov.

[BT TKLEGRATI1 TO THE TRIBOKE.] San VBdJfCUOO, Nov. lO.-The act to restrict Chinese immigration ls involved iii a baal tangle every week. Tho decision on TlBlllBJ Bf Judge Hoffman of tho United States District Court, lu thc ca60 of Chinese laborers, materially change* the working of tho exclusion act. The ease was this: Several Chinese recently applied fur admission M merchants, and when it was shown that they had no right to tho title they changed their plea to a claim of former residence in this city, ami brought, habeas corpus proceeding*. On trial it was shown that they did not know the name* of any streets of this city nor thc denominations af out coin; a fact which, nfl born trailers, the Chinese leam be fora they can make themselves timbi stood fal "pigeon Rngiiflfa.*' Ono man bad liol ped Iii* cousin peddle tish here, but bis ignorance of thc city wa* a* anunnj M that of all tho others. The:' all swore they lett thu country before the restriction act was passed. On the strength of this testimony adecision was rend? ered that these Chin*** be allowed to land without certificates, ns it would bo a violation nf treaty ob? ligations to keep them out. When tlie news of thia de. is.ion readies China wo may expect to see many enterprising coolies loaring ba under its shaltcr. Meanwhile the departure ol' Chinese to attend Nev? year festivities in the mother country eon thine*, , over 1,100 flailing this week. The majority of these will return; as it is a popular delusion that the Chinaman is content with a moderate fortuna Which will allow BUB to and his anya in comfort in China. Hi* id. a of a competency, like BB Ameri? can's, grows with thc amount he accumulates. Tho .Sharon .liven e sui! has enlivened local court* this week. An entertaining comedy btu ona.-ted ou Thursday, when tin- fair piaintitl grew hysterical at thu thought! of thc .Senator ami his OflflUaflfll inspect? ing the precious BUUrrtag* certificate.

POLITICS, PROHIHITION AND LICKNSE-RE L1GIOI S-DKAMATIC. [BT TKLMRAI'll TO TnK TRIBUNE.] I iitCAiio, Nov. 10.?Three of tho four Chicago Congressmen, on tho eve of departure from Washington, have exfflUOflfld their views on Hatfamal topics. Mr. Dunham, ot' the 1st District, ia in favor of a tariff and th* Ileum inn Canal. Finerty, tho Independent young Irishman of tho lld, is for a "rational" tariff and the. caual. Ile is non-com? mittal us to his aretotene* for Speaker, believes in enlarging tb* Marj , dog* not think he can do much for Ireland, and declares himself ready to talk w inn the "?elision oilers without lagani to tho tro ditional reticence ot' new members. Mr. Davis, of the lld, is of thc opinion that Randall will hu elected Speaker, and he also will vote for the .anal. Mr. Adams, of the Vlth, is already on the ground in Washington. the result of the local election wa6 not a matter <,f -ni -prise to anyone. Over 2(5,000 K. 'publicans failed to vote, and as the MeDonahl-Mackii: gang had absolute control of most of the polls, the Demo? crats walked over tho course. The most lament? able feature af the election is the control which thu Democratic Commissioners have gained, and which they will exorcise without stint next year iii the l'usideiitial contest. The State political campaign, though not yet ac? tively booming, begins to grow interesting. Gov? ernor Hamilton and ex-(iovernor Ogloshy are still the leading Kcpiihlicnn candidates, hut so many other candidates are springing up in all parts of tho State that ail sorts of complications and entangling alliances ato threatened. 1 his has induced a feel? ing of uncertainty as to which ono of the numer? ous personal campaigns a ill bfl successful. The Tribune has canvassed the ammbem of tho Iowa Legislature to ascertain their views BUBB tim subject of Prohibition. The result shows that they are not favorable to any Prohibition amendment,aud that the general drift is toward high license. Many K> publicans favor local option in the small towna and villages, aud high license in places of over .1,000 population, upon the ground that, as Prohibition cannot Bfl enforced where public sentiment is an? tagonistic, it is unwise, to deprive the larger citic* of thc revenue they can derive from license. The Citizens'League has at last got a test ruae case, involving the legality of the Harper License Law, before the Supreme Court. A suit waa brought agaiust a saloon linn who bad paid tho Mayor's cheap license, the Harper law being BnbBB the issue. Tho Court entered judgment upholding the law, and the defendants at once appealed to tho higher court. Tho directors of tho public library are making another attempt to secure Dearborn Park, on tho lake trout, for a new building, and to thu end will try to induce Coujrross to modify the condilious upon which tho park waa ceded to the city by tho General Government, under which it cannot bo diverted. from public use. The new site ta much needed, as thc library han outgrown itej>ree
