THE CRISIS IN FRANCE. J BOULANGER'S REMARKABLE VICTORY. THE MINISTRY RESIGN. [CENTRAL NKW3 TELEGRAM.] PABIS, Monday Evening.—The calmness with which the people of Pitris have taken the result of yesterday's election is almost as wonderful as General Boulanger's prodigious majority. The politicians, of course, have been, and are, terribly excited and in a general state of fluster, but the masses are not at all agitated on the subject. Even the Bourse, where it was predicted prices would come down with a crash, has preserved comparative calmness. The newspapers, accord- ing to their political proclivities, either abuse General Boulanger, call for the immediate resignation of the Government, or pretend that the matter is of no particular importance. The ministers conferred together last night as soon as General Boulanger's victory had been assured, The Ministerial deliberations were prolonged into the small hours of the morning. Before ministers separated it was decided formally to tender their resignations with a view to enable President Oarnot to act as he might deem the circumstances required. The President, however, on being informed of this decision, promptly replied that it was entirely premature, ahd that it would be time to talk of resignations when it bad been proved that the Cabinet no longer possessed the confidence of Parliament. Wuen, therefore, the Chamber met at two o'clock this afternoon, the excited deputies, who bad assembled in full foace, as well as the diplomatists and other notables who had crowded the galleries in the confident expectation of sensational scenes, were cruelly disappointed. M. Jouvencel, Opportunist, who had given notice of his intention to interpellate the Government upon the action which they proposed to take in view of the sinister spread' of Boulangism, postponed the matter until Thursday next:, and the Chamber forthwith proceeded with the business on the order book, which, as it happened, was of an unusually humdrum character. M. Floquet, the Premier, who was in the House looking quite careworn, seemed much relieved at ths prospect of having further time in which to 'prepare for the parliamentary fighting, although his friends would have us believe that be is ready and safe for the fray. General Boulanger, the hero of the hour, did not put in an appearance, to the chagrin of a groat crowd of admirers and adversaries who had assembled outside the Chamber. Some of these people seemed ripe for mischief, but there were plenty of police about., and a sufficient force of troops was held in readiness for auy emergency. General Boulanger has not yet given any indica- tion of his immediate intentions, but it is understood that he is drawing up a letter of thanks to the electors of the Seine which will be tantamount to a manifesto to the French people. The following appeared in our later editions yesterday [REUTER'S TELEGRAM. J PABIS, Monday.—The Republican journals this morning acknowledge that the Republic suffered a serious reverse by the election of General Boulanger yesterday, but add that that is not sufficient to make it discouraging. They declare it is necessary that it should preserve its composure and draw closer union of all Republicans against Caesarism, which is threatening. The Boulangist and Monarchist papers declare the success of the general is the condemnation of the Parliamentary Republic, and the attack is directed particularly against the Government. [CENTRAL NKWS TBLXGRAM.L MONDAY, 1 a.m. The latest returns make the poll of M. Jacques appear to a little better advantage. Still Boulanger had a large majority. His supporters are wild with joy. The final numbers were Boulanger 244,071 Jacques 162,5X0 Majority 81,551 I A total of some 20,000 votes is distributed among the Socialist and other inconspicuous candidates. Almost the full available strength of the electorate was exerted on Sunday. The total number entitled to vote in this department is 435,860. I learn that though elected by this tho most influential constituency in the country, General Boulanger will at onco resign the seat just bestowed upon him, and will remain faithful to his old love—the department of the Nord. The resignation of the Cabinet is, of course, only a matter of hours, and all sorts of rumours are flyit) about as to the constitution of the next ministry.
