The Times thinks none of the causes make any permanent advance certain. Bismarck is more likely awaiting a rise in price than in tending to abandon the single standard for wV>?h he lias already sacrificed so much, and '■b many still has from $00,000,000 to $80, 000,000 of silver out. Whenever the Indian Government puts its hills upon the market, silver falls, anil we cannot count on its ability to refrain. The American silver production fluctuates so violently that we cannot rely on a decrease. The Times has an editorial on the rise of silver in London, during the last three months from 80 to S8 cents, and boites the apprecia tion may still continue. The writer believes that the facts and tendencies on which the re cent rises are based, are by no means such as to justify confidence in the permanent rise, or to relieve from danger any country which should now rush upon unlimited coinage of silver at any fixed ratio whatever with gold. As to the notion that an adjustable ratio could he adopted, it is too absurd to ho considered seriously. The Times then goes on to account for the rise, giving as oite of the reasons the fact that there« has been a great falling off in the American production. The reasons are then discussed seriatim, and the one in ques tion is disposed of as follows : It'is true that the arrivals of silver bullion at San Francisco for the first three months of this year were only about three-eigutlis of those for the same period at any time since 1875. But the pro duction has changed so violently, and so reatly within five years, that it would he folly to suppose that it had at last settled to a ratio that will not change at all. The French Way. Versailles, June 17.—The Chamber of Deputies on resuming its silting, voted to ex clude de Cassagnac from the Chamber for three days. De Cassagnac replying to a vote of tlie house, declined the present Cabi net infamous. Gambetta threatened him with prosecution.
