ACTIVE OPERATIONS IMMINENT. FRENCH AGENTS ORDERED OUT OF SHANGHAI. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT. | PARIS, SATURDAY AFTERNOON. It is announced this afternoon that M. Ferry has ordered aU the French diplomatic agents now at Shanghai to quit Chinese territory -without delay. In some quarters this step is thought to presage the immediate commencement of really serious operations in China. It is doubtful, how- ever, whether anything important will be done until the arrival of strong reinforcements at Hanoi and Kelung. The bulk of these have not even started, but 6,000 men. and at least one battery of artillery, will leave for Formosa on the 17th inst., and they will be followed early in February by 6,400 men. It has been decided, I believe, that as soon as Langson has been occupied General Negrier shall advance upon and occupy the town of Thatke. This place is practically the key of the mountain defiles through which the Chinese troops have long been pouring into Tonquin, and its occupa- tion was strongly urged months ago.
