PRUSSIAN POLITICS. Berlin. January 22. A bill has baen pre sented in the bandesrath proposing an addi tion of eleven new regiments of infantry and two artillery and one battalion ot pioneers to the German army, one regiment of infantry to be Bavarian, two Saxon and the rest Prus sian. I he bill also proposes an audition of thirty-two Geld batteries to the already existing artillery forcft. The changes con templated would entail permanently a yearly outly of seventeen million marks and pri mary expenditures of twenty-seven million marks. The bill further provides that the strength of the army on a peace fooling from April, 1831, to March, 1888, shall be one p -r cent. of the population, thereby raising the present ceace force fiom four hundred and one thou sand to four hundred and twenty-seven thrmnand two hundred and fi'tv.

The ceiemony has. it is alleged, been deferred because the cardinal has declined to perform the necessa ry ceremony, and both the widow and the lawyer are too hieh-toiied to be married by any oooy abort ot a cardinal or an arcbbisb orj if there was ono to be found.

It is a well known fact that Mr. O'Cc nor ia a worshipper at the feet of the widow, and has been her most earnest dvo'ee. He has been ber attorney aud adviser, and that he has sought to be her husband is nowhere doubted. Thtt she has consented to become his wife is alsj be lieved, and that tbtt cardinal has interposed objections is common society talk, not to say oo;iefy scandal. ij Conor a'tenda to busi nets daily, and lunches in a Broad street res taurant, where farinaceous food is freely of fered and temptingly served by pretty w$it- er-girls. Now the story fits on her that the widow Lord, calling to see him at his office, was told that he was lunching at the place indicated, which was pointed out to her. Tuithtr she drove, and finding Charles equally enjoying the prexencs ot the serving maid and a dish of oatmeal, nicely in pa red ; and with rich cream thrown id. she turned abruptly away and swept an indignant rustle to her carnage. As sue sailed out Charles descried her and flad from one charmer to the other, who was just getting in her coach. He spoke in pleading tones, begging her to be stow one little smile on her devoted Charlie; but she made no answer beyond dragging the door shot with a crash that emphasized tbe words: '1 hate you.1 I say the story fits on her, but it is only a coloring to the general relation, and, while received as a bit of gos sip and much repeated, it is not accepted as a tact in blind confidence. What will be come of the engagement is not known. The cardinal's objection is regarded by some peo ple ni being insuperable, l ou remember it was the cardinal who tied the knot before. Out of the current of this anair tbe new re lation brings a fact that is indeed a fact, and one not. known hitherto.

Large crowds had assembled on the wharves and houses to witness the landing of the dis tinguished visitors.

It was resolved to call the attention of congress to the great number of vinegar factories which have nprutig uo under the act authorizing vinegar fict ones to vapor at. Mr. noniort, oi sssw York, said teat they were probably making whisky under tbe guise or vinegar. He was receiving orders from a lame number of via egar factories for stills, and in New York alone enough vinegar was made to supply the whole country, and he was, ot the opinion that so me members of the vinegar manufac turers required closer watching than moon shiners. 1 he committee on legislation was directed to ask for leg slation to put this ousi nes8 uoder proper surveillance, tbe cbiet point of interest was the fight made by the Kentucky distilleis in favor of the recommen dation to repeal tbe law requiring interest to be paid on whisky remaining in bond atter one year, and also the law that requires a tax to be paid on the amount entered into bond, so las to allow for natural shrinkage while in bond. ibis recommendation was adopted alter a long discussion. In the pro gress of the meeting, one member said- that tbe whisky interest in the United States had tbe strength and money to override the inter nal tevenue department. 1 resident Muter promptly said that it was not the purpose of the association to antagonize the revenue de partment, but only tp try and remove the an noying and unnecessary restrictions placed n tbe whisky interest.

THE ELKCTOliAL 1NFA51V Which the Republicans Threaten to Perpetrate la Sew York by a - Legislative tCaaetnaeat. The Heheme Approved by Kvarls- Twenty-One Oat or Thirty-Five Kleetora to be tseeared. Washington special to tbe Baltimore Gazette: "Nothing heard of for some time in a political way seems to be creating so much talk and feeling at the capital as the proposed scheme of passing a law through the legisla ture of New York that will operate to divide the electoral vote of that State between the two great parties. It will be remembered that within the past tew months, in tact as soon as the result last November was known. the desperate Radical organs in New 1 crk began talking ot tbe propriety of having the presidential electors chosen by tbe lt-gisla- ure. As this ia heavily Republican in both hratcbea, tbe result would be a full set of Republican electcr-s although the State might go fifty thousand Democratic. As might have been expected, tbe more conservative organs in discussing this clan intimated that the people of the country m ht fail to see the i us tics or equity of any sich arbitrary meas ure on tbe eve oi a great ana imio tant cam paign, when is.u?s were so closely drawn. and tbat they might so vote as to make it understood that suuh was not the their way of conducting an honest business. Even the most daring nod unscrupulous ot" the Grant PQ.itic:ans, who bad at first rubbed their hands gleefully oyer this proposition, soon began to cool down and take the back track They saw such an evident feeling against this act of despotism that in the course of a few weeks it ceased almost entirely to be talked of. All this time, however, ic stems they were busy at work hatching up something not quite so barefaced but equally certain to checkmate the plans of thi Democracy, based on the existing manner of electing President. 1 be scheme now devised is new and delightfully simple. It is proposed in the shape of a bill before the New York leg islature, introduced by a Mr. Potter, of Sara toga county, to chooso electors by congres sional d stricts, with two added from the State at large, as is now the case, the two standing in the shoes of the sen atorial delegations. In cose, then, after the passage of such a law. the State at the next campaign went Democratic, tbe electoral col lege would stand twenty-one Uepuolicans and fourteen Democrats, a figuring just strong enough to overthrow all the piesent Demo cratic calculations. J udging from tho past, which is precedent enough, thu Democracy has counted up one hundred and thirty-eight votes from the south, thirty-live votes from New York, and fifteen from either Indiana or Connecticut and New Jersey combined, and the candidacy of an eastern man like Seymour or Bayard has been regarded the wisest thing, as it would secure New York, New Jersey and Connecticut certain, and tben leave the Democracy a fighting chance in Indiana. With anything in view to break up or disturb the thirty-five solid voles from New York, the Democratic prospect changes. Twenty-one votes is a big slice to take out of thirty-five, and the Democracy could not hope, under the most favorable auspices, to secure more than fourteen in New York, except in case of a tidal-wave of ' indignation among the liberal and conservative vote. There may 6a a great deal of bluster about these plans of the Radicals, and it may turn out that enough of their own stripe can bs found in the New York legislature who will not lend themselves to anything which amounts to a practical confession tbat heroic treatment is needed to save the Presidency a confession of tbe weakness of their cause. t is, however, the universal and absorbipg topic of conversation here now. Tne Demo crats are, of course, unanimous against the injustice of it, while admitting it can be con stitutionally done; but some of them go so far as to hope the bill will be passed, so as to help along a revulsion of fe-ling in the other close northern States aud in the rural dis tricts of New York, where there is quite a large independent vote. While, at the same time, tbe Republicans as a class think favora bly of the project and believe the miljepium is in sight, there are some among them who look upou it with grave distrust, and cannot reconcile in their minds the inconsistency of a bill which composes an electoral college of thirty three electors chosen by districts and two chosen in a totally diffarent way name ly, by the popular vote. They also fear that tho neglect of the last legislature, which was Republican, to redistrict tie &tate tor con gressional purposes, under the law, may react, It is a well-known fact that twenty thousand votes at present will elect a man to congress in a Republican district, while it requires forty thousand to elect him in a Democratic one; also that hd the redisricting been done as required the Uemocracywould have gai-ied two congressmen in Btooklyn. Secretary Evarts gives vent to tfe powerful idea that this law can pass without violating any clause ot ibe cocfctiuinon, arid br speaks favorably ot it on the ground that -it would make the 'intelligence' of New Y'orit prerot derate in the electoral college. Tiria is the refuge to which most of tbe Radicals rup.claiming font thiB plan would only be c&rrying cut the idea of placing some check on majority ru!c,as was designed by the framers of the constitution, and thus admitting in' the same breath that they are flying in tbe face cf major ity rule. Even under tie most hopeful out look the mention of this bill has given the Democrats nightmare. Suppose, they argue, that we are to be cheated out of a part cf our honest rights in New York, where can we look for relief ? Nowhere possible but in the west Ohio, Wisconsin, Oregon and Califor nia. Even with tbe fourteen votes of New York, one hundred and thirty-eight from tbe touth, fifteen from Indiana, nine from New Jersey and six from Connecticut, the Democ racy could only score one hundred and eighty two, three less than neessary to elect. All tben would depend on Oregon, California, Ohio and Wisconsin, which is rather a close shave. The only ray ef hope seen is ia the nomination of Grant, which will estrange tbe German vote in Wisconsin and Ohio nnd place those States in the Democratic column. It is also suggested that tbe nomination of a hard-money western Democrat may prove a necessity."

Houie ef them Believe that his Paper sforseshoe Is a Ureal H access Others llonbtfal. New Y'ork, January 22. A cable special from Paris gives tbe views of a number of French electricians on the Edison light. Wilfred DeFonvielle said the onslaught of Uount de Moncel on .hdison attracted no at tention whatever. De Moncel is not a mem ber ot the institute and cannot be, never hav ing made any scientific discovery or published any original work. He hes merely written a number ot reoor.s on electricity. M. DeFonvielle said that he had already expressed his own opinion in print of Edison's light, and has nothing to add. A translation of this article has been published, and is to the effect that Edison s work wilt be appre ciated in iuture ages, when the names of his critics have been long buried in oblivion. Jean Baptiste Dumas said that his impres 8'ioa upon first reading ot Eicon's discovery was one of incredulity, but he now gees no real impossibilitv in the thing. Mr. Crooks, the inventor ot the radiome ter, expressed himself as follows: "I do not believe that tbe horseshoe ot Edison can last for anv length of time, because it is impos sible to extract tbe whole ot the air from the tubes, and there must always remain a cer tain quantity in them. I bis aircuangps into carbonic acid, at the expense of catbomzed substances. Then this carbonic ucid gets heated, and at contact with the surface ot glass it decomposes and leaves a 6mall de posit ot carbon, lae oxygen thus set at lib erty acts on a fresh quantity of carbon from the horseshoe, which it changes into carbonic acid and no on indefinitely. M. Fontaine, president ot the syndicate electricite. when asked hH opinions ou 1. li- son b latest discovery, said : 1 have read everything published on the subject. My conviction is that by the employment ot the carbonized horseshoe r.dison has made an important advance in the matter of electric light. 1 believe tbat this result has been ob tained by a certain dexterity) of manipula tion, ot which hidison has preserved the se cret, as for instance, the judicious employ ment ot the electi-.o current through a pro cess ot carbonr. ttien.
