From All Parts of the World. THE FRENCH CHAMBERS. De Broglie Opposes Investigation Into Ministerial Acts. GAMBETTA ARRAIGNS THE MINISTERS. More New Curdinais To lie Createdr?The Scotch embolic Bishops. GLADSTONE HONORED IN GLASGOW. [BY CABIJi to the n Ell a id. 3 London, Nor. 16. 1877. In the Froneb CUambor or Deputies yesterday the Duko de Broglle, President of tbo Council and Minis ter of Justice, opened the debate on Albert Grdvy's motion lor tho appointment of a committee to Inquire Into olcctlon abuses. Ho m.ido a long speech In wtitch tie plainly lntlmuted that President MacMalion would not tslce a Ministry Irom the Lelt, nor would the gov ?rnment submit to tbo proposed electoral Inquiry. THE UNCERTAIN FUTURE. He said when tbe present government bad fulfilled Its task of answering tbe attacks of the Left, tho Marshal would seo what was Incumbent upon blm. II be could bo assured tbat a Ministry containing MM. Blanc and Ronault (oxtrcme radical and conservutlvo republican respectively) would agree upon a pro* gramme, the patb of parliamentary procedure would be open. If not, It would bo necessary to seek some other solution. A SIGNIFICANT WARNING. The Duke de Broglle declared that tbo government were ready to accept even penal responsibility for their aots and meet tbo proposed Impeachment, but warned tbe new Commlttoe of Publto Safety tlist neither tbe present. Cabinet nor Its successors, if they bad any regard lor publta peace, wonld counte nance the proposed onesided inquiry. CHARGES AGAINST TUS LEFT. He accused tbe Lelt of Intimidation and fraud during tbo elections, and especially accused tbcm of spreading tbo assertion tbat a conservative victory meant war. lie provoked a protest lrom Gumbotta by insinuating that be cuusod tbo insertion of this calumny in German and other lorelgn papers. Tbo Duko de Uroglie warned those who, in Wednesday's debate, appeared to appeal to in surrection tbat It would be suppressed, and tbat, oven If successtul, its success might be transient. Tbe Duko de Broglle was loudly applauded by the Right. OAMUETTA'S RCl'LY. M. Gambotla characterized tbo Duke de Brogile'e speech as able, but porlldious. He said It iormod tbe best argument lor ino Inquiry, as It showed stub bornnoss and resistance to tbo will ot the country. Tbo Insinuation tbat tbe Lelt gained a majority by misrepresentation was a lio. Tbo government, guilty of malversation, bad gained forty scats by fraud and robbery. Ho denied tbat Inquiry was Illegal. Ho prolessod a desire to uphold tbo authority ol both chambers. NOT AN KNItxr OV MAGNAIION. He was not an autagonial ot Marshal MacMabon. Tbe present Ministers were Insurgents against law. Ho finally dtolared tbat It would be a serious matlor to placa tho Senate above universal suffrage. It the Senate arrogated tbe right or decreeing a second dissolution it would be a veritable reactionary con vention. TIIK MOTION FOR INqUlRY CARRIED. After much violent poraoualtly a vote was taken. M. Grdvy'a motion was adopted by 320 against 203. Tbo CUambor dectdod to appoint the mombors of tbe eommitteo of inquiry to-day. ALAKMINU RUMORS.

The inhabitants oi Krzeioum have participated in the recent lighting. The loss has been large. General enthusiasm is manifested. Russian cavalry have appeared on the north of Erzeroum." MOCKIITAK STILL CONFIDENT. A Vienna correspondent estimates the Russian forces before Erzeioupi at 26,000, which is insuffi cient to invest the place.

Sax Dikoo, Cel., Nov. 15, 1871 The Mexican war steamer Mexico, Captain Verde commanding, arrived In port 10-day |>roiu Mazatlan. She brought up 135 regular troopa and lauded them at Kuaenada, on the Lower California coast, about olgbty miles south of San Diego. Kx Municipal Governor Villagrana accompaniea the troops, who were to march tmmediately to San Rafael, tbo capital, to rolnstate him In anthorhy. The gunboat will remain in port a low days to wait for the remit of the land expedition, more being no convenient anchorage oil Kuseuudn, whliu reitaule overland communication ul one day's travel exists belweou this city and San Kalael. Tun olhcurs ol the war steamer say lliotr purpose is to establish order in Lower California, it is pretty certain that or der will only continue backed by military power. A lurgo number of tbo residents of Lowor California aro hostile to Vlllagrana's rulo and will only submit under lorce. If troops sru put In garrison at San Rafael Villagrana can maintain tin! authority. Wo see no guaranty, however, of llio security of the border in the vicinity ol Cnmpo and other frontier settlements, the force at 8uu Rafael being too far distant to be of any use.

Tbe losses from tbe preva lence ol tbe caterpillar wore heaviest in Texas, were somewhat serious in Louisiana and to a less extent In Mississippi and Florida. COKPAKISON WITH LAST Till. In the following comparison of Slates with tho crop ol lost year Texas bus tho lowest percontugo and would be still lower but lor tho fifteen per coinum in crease of area. Arkansas and Tennessee stand high, not only by reason ol a good crop, but because their yields wcro relatively low lust year. Alabama is above 100, only becauao her last crop w?s a very poor one.
