DEBATE-IN THE. FRENCH CHAMBER. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.] PARIS, WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON. In the Chamber this tafternoon M, Ferry, reply- ing to an interpellation by M. Duval, said the new plan of operations in Tonquin provided for the occupation of that province as far as the Chinese frontier. General Lowal, the new Minister for War, then entered the tribune, and proceeded to make a speech which caused considerable sensation. The general mobilisation of the French forces was not, he said, in any way compromised'by the necessity for more reinforcements to the East. France, however' had three million soldiers ready to march, and the army could not continue to remain squatting.as if drugged, with their eyes fixed upon one point alone. (Sensation.) It would, therefore, bo neces- sary for the Government to ask Parliament to sanction a small measure of mobilisation, in order to enable them to meet all demands irv connection with the operations in China and Tonquin. (Sen- sation.) After some further discussion the Chamber, on the demand of the Government, adopted, by 294 votes against 234, the order of the day pure and simple. Amongst the distinguished personages who lis- tened to General Lowal's peculiar speech was Prince Hohenlohe, the French Ambassador. The speech is generally condemned as being in bad aste, and it has caused a decidedly bad im- pression.
