The Paris correspondent of the New York Timet says : The weather has suddenly changed to snow and ice, the lakes of the Bois de Bou logne are frozen over, and tne carnival ot the skaters is at its high.t. The masked balls are crowded to their ntmoet capacity, and in tne world or the vniearat and the mohv cant Rigolbocbe reigns more queen than ever. And not alone among the noisy peo ple of the carnival ; she is the focus of the lorgnettes of every rank of society. Even the toy-people on tho Boulevards cry in one's ears at every step,' in showing you a manikin that performs wonderful gymnas tics with its Ices, "Here's Rigolbocbe, only twenty-nine bousi yrnen raiuea oa irvention of the toy-people, the Hones the day exclaimed : "Well, that only or that I am the celebrity of the epoch!" twenty-nine sousl" When rallied on this lioness ot iroves The memoirs of this girl, known when she made ber debut two years ago at the public balls as "Marguerite," fa Jitiguenote, has reached the eighth edition, and a sale, porhaps, of 50,000 copies, and yet the book is a mere fiction, written by M. Ernest Blum, one of the ed itors of Charivari and of the Independence Btlqe. The name of this popular goddess f the public balls suffices, with the title psge portrait, to sell the book. Such is her popularity that she has ceased to appear on the stage of the Celaeeementt Cotniguet Theater, where she drew crowds nightly to see her throw her feet once or twice in the air in a quadrille, and she now favors the public but with one dance in the course of the evening at the masked ball. But what a crowd, wnat pushing and shov ing; what an excitement to see this one dance I The boxes are taken weeks in ad vance by ladies and gentlemen of the highest society, to witness this one dance. For this dance Strauss reserves his most diabolic quadrille, and when the rollicking girl gets to the "cavalier ttvl," the excited audience is treated to a specimen of graceful "ground and lofty tumbling" that will mark an epoch in the history of the can can. On these triumphal occasions Rigolboche is dressed in gamin de Paris striped satin trowsers reaching just below the knee, flesh colored silk stockings, red cashmere shirt. curled and powdered wig, and crushed hat on the side ot the bead. .

Present Peculiar and Perplexed Condition of Mexico. All the principal churches in Mexico are closed and the clergy refuse to open them. This is a serious tact for the President to deal with, as the Government will find it difficult to compel them to perform their duties, and the people are very uneasy at the absence of pnestiy counsel ana absolution. The f resi dent has other, rivals than Miramon, and foam are entertained bf a strife between the chiefs of the liberal, puros and moderados sections, each of which "has its ambitious men," says a correspondent of the' New Or leans Picavunt. "whose patriotism does not extend beyond their personal aggrandize- menv There are already four prominent candi dates in the field for the Presidency at the ensuing election. First, in the General who has deteateo Miramon, Jesus Uonzales Or tega. ' He is about forty-two years of aire. was educated for a lawyer, and was formerly Governor of Zacatecas, in which office he won much popularity. Second, is Don Miguel Lerdo, a thorough Liberal, and an opponent of the clerical power which has so long held sway in the Republic. He has the reputation of being an 'able financier and statesman. - t . Third, is Don Manuel Doblado, for many years Governor of the State of Guanajuato. a talented and energetic man, whose name nas frequently appeared in the history ot the late revolution. ' Fourth, is Don Benisn Juarez, the present Executive, who, to his liberality in political sentiment, adds, by the acknowledgement of all parties, the qualities of stern personal and publio integrity. He is of Indian pa rentage, out wnen quite young was taicento the city of Oajaca, and educated for the law. It is represented that 'while each candidate has strong friends, public favor seems mainly to turn upon Ortega and Lerdo. - Probably it would go far to the final triumph of law and order, were the re-election of Juarez, to pe accompusnea. ' PbOSFKOT OF THS CotTIVATIOH OF CoTTOH by Fees Labor. A meeting of capitalists has been called, in New York, at the Cooper Institute, to organize an association for the cultivation of cotton by free labor; Mr. H. S. Sanford, of Conn., who has traveled extensively in Central and South America for four or five years, with a view to this subject, has lately given the result of nis ooservauons to tne public thiough the Albany Evening Journal. He states that there is a larger cotton territory of the best quality southward, than the whole area of the cotton States of our Union. The plant grows spontaneously, and the wild cotton is in common use amongr the natives. i From Peru, Mr. Sanford saw a single lot of 1,500 bales coming over the Isthmus by railroad, destined for England; tnd though badly ginned, so fine was the staple, it urougut in iiiverpooi eighteen cents per puunu. rrom Venezuela, ne was informed that fifty to seventy-five million pounds are exported annually, mostly to Germany, at thirteen to fifteen cents per pound. Thirty years since, the export from Granada was reported at 100,000- bales annually. It still grows luxuriantly, but is no longer cultivated to any considerable extent. Mexico abounds in rich cotton lands, on both her eastern and western coast, A considerable amount of machinery is being shipped now from New York for Acapulco, destined for cotton clean ing in that neighborhood. i Ths Dim oh-Tmbsi roa Liqoob.

A new method of engraving has been In vented in New York, which bids fair for a complete revolution in the art of producing plates in relief for illustrative and other purposes. This newly-invented and patented process is called the "Graphotype," and some idea of its valne and usefulness may be obtained from the following description of the eurions manner in which the work is accomplished: Blocks of densely-compressed chalk are formed of any required size and faced with a fine drawing surface. On this surface any artistic design is executed with an ink, the main body ot which is a solution or sues, possessing tne property oi naraening; me chalky surface of the block wherever it touches, while the intervening spaces are left soft and susceptible of being brushed or "routed ' out to any neeoea oeptu. ine most delicate hair-lines and cross-hatching are preserved by this proceBS in bold relief, after which the whole block is made almost as hard hi quartz bydipping it in a solution ofsilex. The block thus prepared is mounted upon a composition block, type-nigh, and is ready either for the press or the stereo types The inventors claim for their singu lar process these great advantages over wood engraving, vis : First, economy of time in favor of the graphotype as hours to days; second, a saving of twenty-five per cent, in cost, and thirdly, truthfulness, as perfect reproductions of the artist's draw ings are made without the loss or alteration ot a single line. Another advantage is, mat copper-plates are produced- by this pro cess in relief, and may be worked as wood engravings. we have seen a number of proofs, grapho type engravings, and they were as clear and fine as copper-plutes, in what are in wood engravings the most difficult portions. Louisiana Growing Jealous of her Seceded Sisters—Her Claim for the Leadership. The New Orleans Picayune observes: Louisiana ought to be a leading State in any confederation of which she may form a part. She has larger interests at stake than any of them. She holds the keys of the greatest river on the earth, and sends forth the largest contribution to the commerce of the world than any other. Her position is a little peculiar. There will be a creator struggle for the possession of the mouths of the Mississippi, it a civil war breaks out, than for all the houtnern ports put together. The products of the North-west seek the ocean through her ports, and this great source of her prosperity and commercial Btrength is also a great source of danger. Now, how far she will give up the power of legislation in regard to the navigation of the Mississippi, is a delicate question to consider. Her Secession is a political disruption of the Viillr-v of the MississinnL without in the leant affecting the physical laws which made her the mart of an Empire. No doubt the cit izens of Louisiana are ready for any sacrifice of self-interest which a generous and brave people may be called Upon to make ; but that will not chance the course of the river. While filled With admiration at the volnme and grandeur of the Mississippi, it is riot lm possible that a hostile people may be living on toe xerritories wnence tne water comes: and what the "interest and welfare" of the State may require in this connection the Convention should weigh in the balanoe of a well-poised judgment, .. ... : A SOBIDSHH JotTRMAlt' OS PlttSIOBHT BtT- ohaham and tbi Cbibis. A late number of the New Orleans Cretcenl remarks: . . It is. indeed, painful to witness such ig norance of the real facts of the case, in the present aistractea condition oi the country, and such an utter inability to grapple with tnem witn a nrm ano Bteaay nana, as is ex hibited by Mr. Buchanan. Can not the President see is he so stone blind that the fact is not apparent to him that the Union is already dissolved, and that all this palaver auout it is uie njotjisuperiaiive nonsense mat ever emanated irom any man not hopelessly lutuuio, ur iu.ue.iuK iu cvorv viemeuk ui man hood or statesmanship? Is it any worse to have fiddled while Rome was Burning, as it ero uiu, man to expostu late and whine over a Union already dis solved, the reconstruction of "which, at the present time, is a thing or utter impossi bility? If the President really means well for his country, as be avers, let him look at things as they are, and take a decided posi tion either for the North or the South, as it becomes every man to do who is a man at all. The quarrel is beyond all chance of present adjustment, and it is worse than weakness for the President, or anybody else, to be talking about such a thing at such a time as the present.

The New York World denies the state raent that there are a much greater number. than usual of persons in that city out ot em ployment, it says: ine fact is set tortn in the sensation papers of the rity, that owing to the present Secession difficulties, large numbers of our mechanics, of clerks, and ar tisans generally have been thrown out of employment. It is further alleged that the applications to our city and private charities for aid are far more numerous than is usual at this time of the year. These statements are untrue, taking the city in the aggregate. There is a less num- ucr ui uaiuvure, jeweiera, uinura anu uouse builders employed now than usual at this eeRFon. In these departments of labor, work is always dull in tho winter. It is estimated that not over one-eighth the ordinary num ber in these departments of industry are now out of employment. Retail dry goods dealers are Belling as much now as customery in the winter months; and in all the varied branches of industry, mechanical, artistic and scien tific, there has been no tailing ott in demand for services or promptitude of pay. ibe most sure index that unusual want does not prevail in the city, is the fact that there are less applications made now to the commissioners of charities and publio benevolent associations than have been made since the panic of three years ago. Every day rosy be Been a throng ot applicants at the headquarters of the Commissioners in Bond-street, and many look tatterei, and wretched, and sick, plainly indicating that they have long suffered the pains of pinching poverty; but tnere is nothing unusual in an this. As lonir as this municipal charity has been dispensed, there has been the regular Winter attendance, whom sleet, and stormk and snow ankle-deep could not drive away. On Thursday last, a book ot record was opened at the office in Bond-street, and at the ro tunda in the Park, on which to eater the names of all persons applying for work who had been thrown out of employment. Up to yesterday there had been twenty-three ap plications only, at the upper office, and nine at the lower. Of those applying at the ro tunda, one was a bookbinder, one a coach man, and the rest were tailors. Another in dication tLat no more than the usual pov erty prevails, is the fact that no soup-houses have y It been opened in the city. HonnlBLS Pabbiciob A Mother Brutally Murdered bv her Son. A vouacr man named Orondough bas been' committed to the jail of Amhetst County, Virginia, charged with the murder of his mother, on the 7th instant. The parties lived on the Blue Ridge Mount ain, and the mother having been missed since ' the 7th instant, suspicions were aroused. The Lynchburg Republican says A large number of persons assembled to gether, and proceeding to the house, dsa manded to know of the young man where she was ? His reply was "that he did .not know; she might be in belli" They then told him to go with them in a search which tbey proposed to make. This be at first de clined, but after much threatening consented to go, and after a long search the mother was found behind a log, some half mile distant from the house, dead. Her neck was broken, and her body. in. different Dlaoea. exhibited evidence that Bhe bad been beaten to death with come blunt instrument. Extraordinary Cass or Spontaneous Tebrems Combostion Remarkable Pheno mena. The editor ot the Attica (lnd.) Ledger waB informed a lew days since ot a curious case of spontaneous combustion, about two miles south of Perrysville, in that State. About balf an acre of ground is on fire, and bas been burning vigorously for some time. The earth is composed mostly of a kind of marl, in wnicn the beat bas made crevices, and the smoke may be seen issuing from the suhterranean furnace a distance of two miles. But the most singular feature of this natu ' ral bake oven is its beautiful covering of green grass an oasis in the cheerless field of snow surrounding it. Cattle attempted to eat the grass, but finding the earth rather warm, scrambled out and left it graving greenly in its hot-bed. Our informant pierced the surface with a rail, and fiery sparks came up thickly. A sound issues from the spot like the distant rumbling of - i ml.. -. . f . . railway coxa, i ue place was iormeriy a low, swampy piece oi land. Accomplishment Without Bayonets.

WASnmoToif, January 27. Tho ftimor was rife here to-day that Gen. Scot t had re ceived new intelligence relative to designs on the Capital by Secession invaders, which causes him much anxiety. Judge Robinson, who was dispatched to the Southern States, by Virginia, to induce tbem to keep the peace, telegraphs that if the Brooklyn is destined for Pensacola, his miFSion will prove a mnure. A dispatch to Senators Crittenden and Powell says the-Legislature of Kentucky has appointed John F. Bell, J. B. Clay, Mr. Guth rie, Ex-Governors Morebead and Wickliffe, Commissioners to proceed to Washington on the 4th of February. The Grand Jury nas made three present ments of ex-Secretary Floyd: First, formal administration in offiee; second, for com plicity in the abstraction of bonds; and third, for conspiracy against the Government. It is expected that the indictments will be for the action of the to morrow. [New York Herald Correspondence.] Washington, January 28.

The most intense excitement exists in cer tain Congressional circles, in consequence of the fact leaking out that the Howard Select Cemmittee of the House has positive evi dence before them of a conspiracy existing in this city and vicinity to overthrow the Government in which certain prominent of ficials and citizens of Washington and else where figure. , Richmond, Va., January 27. Intelli gence has reached here that previous to the passage of the Georgia ordinance of Seces sion, Harrison W. Reilly, a prominent citi zen of the mountain region of that State, proclaimed in another part of Georgia that he was on his way borne, and intended to raise a party to take possession of the United States Mint, at Dafilonega, for the United States Government, in case Georgia passed a Secession Ordinance. His declaration caused considerable excite ment in Milledgeville, and the Government was requested to send a military force to Dablonega, but had not so done at the date of the advice. On the same authority as the above, we learn that there is a considerable Union ele ment in the resolutions of Georgia, and an anti-Secession meeting was held in Pickens County. When they heard of the passage of the Secession ordinance the old stars and stripes were run up, and the demonstrations of the resistance to Secession were emphatic and unequivocal. The impression, hawever, was, at Milledgeville, that the people of Georgia will generally sustain the ordinance of Secession, and co-operate in the formation of a Southern Cotton-State Republic. [Special Dispatch to the New York Herald.] Spbingfield, Ili., January 28. It is now positively settled that Mr. Lincoln will de part for Washington on 11t h of February. He will go hence via Lafayette to Indianapolis, where be will receive the hospitalities of the Indiana Legislature. Thence he will proceed, by way of Cincin nati, to Columbus, Cleveland, Buffalo, and Albany. From Albany he intends to make for Harrisburg direct, thence to Baltimore and the Federal Capital, but the tour to New York and Philadelphia is not impossible. Arrangements for special trains all the way through are making. No military escort will be accepted. The entire journey is ex pected to be made inside often days. From Washington—The Morrill Tariff Bill. Washington, January 27. The Senate's Special Committee on the Tariff Bill will re port on Wednesday. The Morrill Bill, after a close investiga tion, is pronounced to be excellent in princi ple and general arrangement. Nearly two-thirds of the items have al ready been examined carefully. No change of duties on iron are intended, though some schedules may be ordered, to simplify the operations of the law. . Efforts have been made to reduce the duty of pig-iron and steel, but without success. Woolens are to pay twelve cents per pound, instead of sixteen, as in the Morrill bilL which conforms to the rate on raw material The committee will recommend that the law go into operation on the 1st of April, and the proposed modification of ths warehousing system on the 1st of July. All the duties are to be paid within thirty days after being- entered. Merchandise for reshipment can tie stored six months. It is estimated that this bill will produce a rev enue of $58,000, with average imports. The bill now contains a loan for $21,000,000, which is intended to cover outstanding Treasury-notes. This will be Increased to $25,000 000, in order to provide for objects ot special legis lation and other items not included in Mr. Ilix's statement of the condition of the Treas ury for the current fiscal year, i i The Great Battle between the Persians and Turks—The Former Routed with Immense Slaughter—Prospective Overthrow of the Persian Dynasty. i New York, January 48.
