WASHINGTON , April 1. A specia
correspondent of a New York papo ;
sends the following : "The report
which makes Secretary Folgor a
candidate for governor of Now York
sets politicians to wondering what is
coming next. " This talk revives the
story current at the time of his appointment
pointmont that it was in order to keep
a desk for Conkling. This report ,
however , does not obtain ROToral ;
credence. The gossip is that Folger
f has been already sounded and found
inclined to regard the project favora
bly in case of an assurance of nom
ination , with the approval of both
faction ? . Those who know hiiu say
it has long been his ambition to be
governor , nnd it is said hero Cornell
can exile himself in any ono of the
several courts of Europe , if ho indi
cat03 any desire in that direction to
THE OHINESE BILL.
The probabilities regarding the
Chinese bill is the principal topio of
discussion here. There are all shades
of opinions ; those in the best position
to know insist that the bill will be
signed. The Pacific coast members ,
while they hold out stoutly that this
will bo the case , are really much ex
orcised over the matter and watch
every movement with great anxiety.
They admit that the cabinet is against
the bill , but insist that the president
will sign it. Attorney General Brew-
ster is said to bo at work on a docu
ment relative to the bill ; if so , it may
bo inferred that the document is a
veto , for Mr. Brewstor is reported as
personally and officially ad verso to ibo
There will bo no cabinet nomina
tions until the Chinese bill is disposed
of. The cabinet is equally divided on
the qvestion , Itis ascertained to-day
that Attorney General Browster's
opinion is to bo presented at the special
meeting to-morrow ; it will state clear
ly that the bill is a direct abrogation
of the treaty , and that the president
will express the opinion that the treaty
should bo modified , if at all , in a less
summary manner. It in positive the
president will not sign the bill , and it
is thought to depend on the cabinet
conference whether ho vetoes or al
lows it to become a law without his
signature. The California delegation
still behevo it will bo signed. Any
etlort to have the bill amended would
bo bitterly opposed in the house , if
such effort bo possible.
THE POTOMAC FLITS.
There scorns good ground to fear
that notwithstanding the benefit of last
summer's ' experience , the Potomac
flats are to remain unimproved for the
present , so much time is being taken
up in congress providing for the Mis
sissippi flood and its consequences ,
and yet the river delegations are annoyed -
noyod by the failure of the bill to
send a commission to the scene of the
floods , and fears for the inadequacy of
congressional treatment are enter
tained. The District commissioners
aecm to have neglected the flats too
long , and it is now thought the ses
sion is too far spent for the proper re
sults , Meanwhile the river channel
is becoming narrower and the scope
of the work is increasing.
