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
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."
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
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.

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.
ThoAmericau elections excited little attention,
even Butler's defeat passing almost in silent e. A

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

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*,

will return; as it is a popular delusion that the

I iitCAiio, Nov. 10.?Three of tho four Chicago

Hatfamal topics. Mr. Dunham, ot' the 1st

Ileum inn Canal. Finerty, tho Independent
young Irishman of tho lld, is for a
"rational" tariff and the. caual. Ile is non-com?

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

the issue. Tho Court entered judgment upholding
the law, and the defendants at once appealed to tho
higher court.
