Huntington, in an argument liefore the New Orleans common council a day or two since, saiil that he proposed to compete with sailing .vessels which go around Cape Horn, for carrying 1,250,0C0 tons of California wheat which goes to foreign countries; that in competing with sailing ships for the trade he had found that ships which go to San Francisco for wheat carry there cargoes of coal frorn England, Australia, and else wheie. In order to compete with them at this point, he had bought extensive coal deposits on Fugot sound, and was building A ship to freight this coal to Sau Francisco. In this way he could supply a large amouut of the demand for coal, and thereby render it unprofitable for wheat ships to bring coal there. He was already in with foreign ship owners to put ou such a line of steamer?. These ships will be of the largest class, and fast sailers, leaving New Orleans and the other side of the Atlantic at a regular given date. -The Trade Dollar. TSw York, Nov. 25. A Wall street money broker said yesterday that since the practical retirement of trade dollars in this market he had shipped 250,003 of them to China. He also stated that one rich brewer of this city had about $100,000 in trade dollars, and would not part with them for less than par. Ship Canal Incorporation. Mansfield, O., Nov. 24. Harlem Com mons, a syndicate which held its first meet ing last August here, met again to-day. The syndicate is an incorporation under New York laws, the reputed object of which is to make a ship canal from the North to the East rivr. The property to be used is claimed to be owned by the heirs of the five original trustees. Matters con sidered were the issuance of stock to the heirs, and a proposition to excavate the canal. The next meeting will be held iu New Yqrfc. Murine the holidays. A Crank Wants to Kill Ait":ur. New Yof.k, Nov. 27. The World says: A stranger made his appearance at the Fifth Avenue hotel yesterday, when Detective Prior accosted him, saying, '"What do you want prow line about this hotel ':" "I h ive a duty to p:-rforn.," answered the stranger. Detective Prior turned the man about and directed him to the stairs. He did not stop until the stairs were reached, and then straightening to his full height and throw Sing back his hat, which covered hi3 fore head, the man almost shouted, "I am a colonel from Kentucky, and I have made this trip for the express purpose of shooting President Arthur." A law should be .passed to hang such cranks. Such utter ances against the chief magistrate of a na tion should meet with the severest punish ment. The Postal Notes r-v be Changed. Chicago, Nov. 27. Before leaving Wash ington for the west, Postmaster General Gresham decided that the postol notes furnished by the Homer Lee Company of New York were not on a quality of p iper up to the standard required by the contract. The paper is too soft in texture ami too light in weight. The color has also been found objectionable. It was guaranteed by the contractors that the ink of tl.e payer's signature, and that of the stamp of the pay ing officer, could not be removed without changing the color of the note, anil thus in- suiiug tlie detection oi attempted fraud. The guarantee, it has been found, is un founded, and new paper and a new tint are therefore required, and the contractors are Dow preparing for a change. The new tint wrill probably be blue, and some change will also probably be made in the form or the design of the nc-te. DIVISION OF TEXAS. Washington, Nov. 20. The disdosure of the fact that the project to divide Texas in order to strengthen the democratic party in the senate and electorial college is being discussed in the private councils of the party, has created considerable comment. Opinion is divided upon the subject, even among the inem'.ie;- of the present con gressional delegatipn from Texas, as it is urged against the scheme that the state can be handled now with ease and certainty, whereas, if division takes place there may complications arise to jeopardize at least a part of the control. A modification of the scheme is t ilked of, and the argument is put forward, that the vast extent of terri tory renders legislation cumbersome, incon venient and expensive. Although Sena tors Maxcy and Coke disavow sympathy with any movement to divides Texas into four states, in accordance with the stipula tion contained in the resolution of March 1, 1845, annexing the Texas republic, the democratic managers are quietly working up a sentiment through which, in event of democratic success in 1884, it can be ac complished. This matter will be secretly considered by the democratic national com mittee, upon it i assembly to fix the time and place of the next nominating conven tion, and form the most importaut topis to be presented to that body. PROTRACTED CABINET MEETING, Washington, Nov. 27. The cabinet meeting is protracted, and it is understood that the Franco-Chinese troubles are uulj.-discussion. FOREIGN AFFAIRS, Burners ef Psase Smrian. Fraassanl CUina Paris. Njv. 23. The Governusent is dis cussing the advisability of dispatching 7 000 moie troops to Tonquin, iu view of the possibility of war wit'i China. It i3 stated, however, that an active exchange of com munications U aping on between Miraiis Tseng, and Prime Minister Ferry, for the purpose of finding a fiesh basil for negoti ations. It is asserted that China has made the proposition that she shall retain the north bank of the lied river, leaving to France the south bank. Preparations of China for war. Chicago, Nov 25. A. Crossinau a mer chant well known here and a man of dis cernment, has jnst returned from China, and speaks as follows of bar clnnoes in a war with France: "China is far better equipped to go to wir than Europeans or Americans generally think. I don't know the number of troops iu the Chinese regu lar army, but I have no doubt that at a ne cessity she could, on very short notice, raise from 500,000 to 1, (.00,000 well-drilled and finely equipped men. The standing army of China is di'ille I on the European plan by European instructors. There are eighteen viceroys' in China, and each viceroy has an army of his own, which would be at the command of the general SorerBlMBt 5n casa of war. These vice roys' trop3 are more than militia they are regulars. China has for years been supplying herself with improved arms. She has purchased through German merchants doing business in her towns, all the needle guns which Prussia use 1 when she went to war with Austria in ISC 1. She has fully 2,000,000 of them, besides Schneider rifles and also some llemingtoii rifles. I have iio doubt that China could easily arm 500,000 :nen with these improved arms. China has purchased, through European houses, a num ber of Kr.ru aa I Armstrong canton. Tlie Chinese navy is of formidable strength. It includes about a dozen men-of-war of the latest armament and power, a dozen cor-' vetts and another dozen revenue cruisers. Each of the latter carry three heavy guns. Some of the vessels were constructed in England an 1 some in Germ my. All the war vessels have English engineers and some of them are oiiicered by Englishmen, The Chinese are mikiug mo Ur.i cannon themselves now. l'hey have foundries near Shanghai, wherj they arj c isting 3teel vaunt -n. Thj3e are m ide exactly as Euro peans make them. Apperently there ara large arsenals in different parts of China where arms anil vast quantities of ammuni tion ami other materi il of war is stored. Certain it is that the bulk of artillery be longing to ihe government is in tiue condi tion. Emjiror Will fljit. S:faghai, Nov. 25. The Jfarth China lie.rald says: The emperor has privately in structed the viceroy at Nanking to begin hostilities against tha French, iu the event of an attact on Bacninh, and has strictly enjoined him to maintain order at treaty ports. SbANCHAi, Nov. 25. The emperor of China iu his instructions to the viceroy at Nankin to begin hostilities against the French in the event of an attact on Bacui nh, says: ..The fact that Aunam is a vassa of China is widely known, yet the French have dared to nuade. Moreover Baciiiuh constitutes the gate to the celestial realm, yet France has r.-pea:edly sought to en croach there. We therefore command the prince ami ministers to inform tha French uvoy that it France dares to encroach fur ther on Bacuinh, China will forthwith! dis patch a large army to tight the French. Paralyzed at Hong Kong. Hoso Kong, Nov. 25. The possibility of war has caused a great drain of specie at Ca it ML We dtiiy Ciiineie have with drawn $5,000,000 iu the last three months from a Chinese bink iu Kwanj Tung prov ince. Chinese mercantile interest at Hon. Kong and Shanghai are paralyzed. OsaionslraUon ia Irelanj. Newkv, Nov. 27. At a meet in-' f Orangemen an arrangement was ma le to hold a demonstration to counteract the dem onstration of nationalists held Sunday after noon.

The magistrates have applied for a large force oi police and dragoons to preserve oruer The Orange men have arranged to place 100 J men on the principal roads to prevent nationalists entering the town. France on American Pork. Paris, Nov. 27. The cabinet council to-day decided to rescind the decree iorbid ding the importation of American pork into France, provided the municipal authorities or chambers of commerce in localities in terested will agree to organize a system of pork inspection as advocated by the mer chants aud authorities of Paris and Marseilles. WASHINGTON NEWS. PACIFIC COAST. CAMPAIGN FUND'S A NEW SCHEME TO EAISE IT. General Rosecrane is the reputed author of a new scheme for the organization of the democratic party for the next presidential campaign. He proposes to divide the dem ocratic voters into sections of tens, fifteens, hundreds, thousands, ten thousand and twenty thousand. Each section shall have a chief, whose duty it shall be to see that the voters under him shall be in line for party service, at the polls or elsewhere, in obedience to orders received by him from the head center. The chiefs are also to be intrusted with the duty of collecting cam paign funds, and of distributing campaign documents, as well as the m magemeut of campaign work within their jurisdiction. The national committee, under this system, would issue its order to the state committ ee. and they would in turn instruct the chiefs of twenty thousand, and so on, down to the chiefs o" tens. It is understood that Gen eral Roiecraus also proposes to raise cam paign fuutls by voluntary contributions of rive cents each fron every enrolled demo crat in tb : or ' in iz it ion. 11 j estun ite.t that the returns from such a subscription would amouut to Sl.50J.000 per year, upon the basis of the Hancock vote of 1S3J. It is proposed that a proportion of one-half of this million ami a half dollars be reserved annually among tin: states for use in local and c. mgi essional campaigns, while the oth er 750,000 h ill lie stored in the vaults of the democratic national committee, for use in close contests, etc. AN ARTHUR DISPATCH. There have been assertions and denials without number made in regird to Presi dent Arthur's supposed desire to succeed hi uself in the presidential cli air. This is n longer lecet, aud his mist intimate f .-lends admit that, while lie is in in sense an applicant for the honor, he will not de cliue the nomination.

A Call edi torial on the wh des 1'e lauding of the so- called Chinese traders, says: The record of this country furnish no parallel for the vio lations to which the Chinese Restriction Act has been subjected. The work com menced in the Cabinet ami has been contin ued in the courts, until under the present ruling the law only puts our offiors to some trouble aud the Chinese companies to some expense. Bljnnon Press Iailgaaat Salt Lake, Nov. 25. The Mormon press is very indignant over a dispatch to an eastern paper, saying that secret clubs, sim ilar to that of Cleveland, were being or ganized all over the west. It calls them 'dark seances" and warns them to go slow. It does not believe ttiat such is the case. Such, however, is the case, as thy are now established all over Utah, Idaho and Mon tana, and meet regularly iu this city. The Mormons have more fear of this new move ment tlu.ii any other yet made. Australian Mail Caatrait RsnswsS. San Francisco, Nov. 25. The mail con tract between the Pacific Mail Steamship Company aud the New Zealand and New South Wales colonies has been renewed. The contract was continued from the time of the expiration of the present agreement iu next November, to extend for a period of not to exceed two years. The steainehip company is to receive a subsidy not to ex ceed 50,000 annually, of which the portion to fail on the colonies sh.ill not exceed ,11 I S, -"50 for carrying wail matter between San Francisco and Australian colonies. Iu the contract is a proviso that unless the con tribution iu aid of the line is received from the United States or some other 3ouree, the renewed service shall only continue for j twelve months. It is desired that the Uni ted States government shall contribute at least one-third of the annual subsidy of the Published every Friday Morning BY fit S. WOODCOCK. uid that his two efforts to get the nomina tion were ail that be w in te I in that direc tion. Ilia friends now are confident that he will not all w the use of his nine as against Arthur, under the circumstances. Several republicans, who were prominent as candidates, seem to give up a'l hope. El- munds was the first to draw out, and Wiu dom followed when he found he was beaten for the senate. The booms for Logan and Harrison died out on their own account, and the Gresham boom was never weighty enough for a respectable consideration. That clea-ed up the list, and only Arthur and Blaine are left, and there are many well up in the political affairs of the country who regard the r ,cc f ir the uomiu itlOns as between them. The President's New Yor'.t !

ArdTjl 3t 01.338 5 Lepiri. Notwithstanding the precautions which the city authorities a-e supposed to take, Chinese lepers manage to find their way here.

NATIONAL BANK CIRCULATION. The portion of Comptroller Knox's report relating to contraction of the national uaak circulation is the most interesting aud im portant part of the document, and has not been published. The comptroller refers to the probability that all of the 3s are to be called f or redemption within the next three years, and says this will reduce bonds held by banks from $255,000,000 to 151,000.000, and cause a contraction of the nation d bank, circulation of ab ut $S),O00,OOO per annum. It is evident that unless there is additional legislation the bonds held as se curity for circulation will rapidly diminish. New legislation may, however, postpone payment of the public debt, or ca-ise the profit ou the circulation to increase suffi ciently to induce national banks to invest in long 4s, which are not to mature for twenty four years. Contraction of hank circulation may be avoided by a reduction of revenue, and no doubt this is the true policy. Con traction of bank circulation may also be avoi led by conversion of long bonds into 3 per cents , and by offering an inducement to holders of bonds to exchange them for 3 per cents., to mature in 1907, the government paying the holders thereof a reasonable amount for the difference in value. Satur !ay last, and 10,000 for the capture of the whole party, the amount to be di vided between tae r.iitrj.i 1 and express companies. Counterfeit Dollarr. Detective Finnegass, ot the United States secret service, reports that a lare;e quantity of spurious standard dollars are in circula tion. The counterfeit is of white metal. It is diped iu silver wash, and the die and milling are nearly perfect, but they lack the ring. Iu a lot of 812,000 taken to the sub- treasury by Wells, E irgo & Co., twenty of these counterfeits were found. The coun- erreiters are suppose I tJ be Itiliaus, oper atiutf principally on r.iiiroad lines. FRANCE TAKES BACK-WATER. Washington, No', 27.

The commission appointed by the state department to in vestigate the causes of trichina, has closed its labors at Chicago and other western points. It will report in favor of creating a separate board to study the matter at great length, for which a liberal appropriation will be required.
