Pari#, Feb 28,1347. j frtnei and England?The Or?at Petticoat War-Pulmcnto t and Normanby down open Guizot, tiki Little Napoleon of Diplomacy?Singular Bmiute In Faablonable Society. The weather is beginning to be extremely beau, tiful in this gay metropolis?the #un bright?the heavens blue?the air bracing?and the whole atmosphere healthy and delightful. Tbo same influence# do not appear to reach the political world. The relations between France and EngItnd, or rather between the two foreign minister#, are wider and worse than ever. Woman has now unixa in tne ieua, ana mo great, migm.y, inipvrt ant, superlative questions of the Spanish marriages, the Spanish succession, and the terrible balanoe of European power, has gradually sunk in public discussion, till it has at length become a delicate point, involving an invitation to a ball, or , the filling up of a minister's hotel, or an ambassador's saloons with the necessary elements of legs, love, and beauty. Every body in the cafit is laughing at the two governments?the two greatest and mightiest governments of the world, beginning a quarrel about the marriage of two young, amiable, and nice personages, and now ending it with the farce of trying to beat each other in getting up rival toiritt. This funny quarrel about the Moatpensier marriage is, therefore, creating a great sensation among tba fashionable salens?and particularly among the fine ladies who lead the ton in Paris. These feelings show themselves in a variety of 1 udiorous and amusing shapes?not only in private and diplomatio balls and parties, bat in those publio bads got up for charhable and benevolent purposes. A short time ago a Polish ball was given at the Hotel Lambert, for the benefit of the Polish exiles. On the subsequent evening followed a British ball, given at Herz's Saloon, for the benefit of the destitute English, Scotch, and Irish. The first ball was crowded by all the most gay, wealthy, and beautiful of French society, with a considerable sprinkling of foreigners, save and except the Russians. We attended it, and it cer- I 1 tainly was a most exciting and splendid scene.? ' The British ball only counted Lord and Lady Nor - 1 rnanby, with the few English residonts, including j ( a dozen of Americans, not, peihaps, a hundred 0 and fifty In all, while the Polish ball reached * many mousnnus. Thaa, has this singular marriigo quarrel been S running through all the bolls and toiriet during 11 the present season, until it reached an open rup - ti ture last week, when Lady Normanby gave a v grand iuirit, and M. Guizota splendid reception, F on one and the same night. We had received a i 8 card from the French Minister of Foreign Affairs, j h but unfortunately were unable to attend on that ! 1 occasion, as Mrs. B. was busy preparing to take a | 1 trip to Italy, for the purpose of offering up her de- t votions during the Holy Week in Rome. All her j s wardrobe was packed away, and she could not 8 go to see the gay throng at the Hotel dee Affaire* { 8 Etrangere*. But during her absence,.which will i be for a few weeks, I shall have an opportunity to s?e the progress of this funny quarrel between j France and England, which is about to be fought , out in the fashionable saloons of Paris, headed by Lord and Lady Normanby on the one side, and M. Ouizot on the other, each with a camp of pretty women, of the highest rank, the greatest beauty, the most splendid drapery, the richest jewelry, the lowest corsages, (for some beauties bare the breast shoqjungly,) the finest necks, the most sparkling eyes, and the greatest quantity oflaoe and liveliness that the world ever saw. It is to be the campaign of Waterloo fought ovor again, not around the Mount St. Jean, but in the saloons of Paris?not with swords, pistols, and big guns, but wiui fiuiKos, waiiifu, cuiupuniania ana elegant , suppers. 1 rather think the French will come off i victorious ibis time. Polmerston, or rather Nor- 1 rnaitby, it is true, has a strong legion of British ; < beauty and force, but there is treachery in his ' oamp. Lord Cowley and all the Cowleys, mas- \ culine, feminine and neuter, who formerly repre- i sen ted the British government at this court, are rather inclining toward* the French statesman and philosopher. To make up tor this defection, Lady Normanby has very wisely won over a couple i of French corp$ d' armit, the, old withered nobltut i of the Faubourg St. Germain, who hate Loais ! Philippe, and the radical opposition from the left of the Chamber of Deputies, headed by M. L Thiers, Ledon, and Rollin?the latter a democrat , of the strictest seot?who love offices. I still believe that M. Guizot will come off vie- 1 | torious in the talont. He is a most amiable, win- i ning, and pure minded man. lie is a statesman j ( of comprehensive views, cool and imperturbable, I , entirely unlike a mo em Frenchman. He has as- j < semblcd around him a large proportion of the 8 rising genius and talent of the metropolis, in- j * eluding the bsautiiul women and blue stockings, f to the extent of several French leagues, ol fine fe- j c males, all in a row, if you put thorn in that posi- \ ition. The minister is witty and sarcastic ; he r attracts all the wit of the capital to his reaeptions. } Lord Normanby is a hot-headed irishman ; has i already spoilt a pretty plausible case by bad moa- { sures, and will commit more blunders belore he | closes his career?in fact, he has a natural taste j for blunders The remaining portion of the lash , ionable season will, therefore, be very interest- j i ing; for on the issue, it would seem, that the relations of France and England, and by conse- 1 quence the fate of Europe, now hang. Such, in sober'seriousness, is nearly a correct j ; picture of the position which the two greatest governments of the old woild hold to each other, while starvation and famine stalk through both nations, and in one province thousands die week- i ly of hunger. What a sad commentary on the j boasted intelligence and civilization of Europe ! | If the government of the United States commit errors?for to err is human?it does not, at least, j descend to the level of a group of old women giving the lie to each other, and quarrelling about i ' Invitations to a ball. The great cry among the , j opposition to M. Guinot, is the isolation into | i which the French government has been thrown I j by tha interruption of the friendly relations be- | i tween the two great constitutional powers ol j Western Europe. As an indifferent spectator, t and a foreigner, 1 have thought that the isolation j! nf FmnAA i? a mnn.h mnrn nnKL nnaitinn an/4 . more agreeable to the traditions and feelings of the French, than any entangling alliance with England, or any other government. France could c easily place herself at the head of liberal opinions ^ ,n Europe, and thereby occupy a moral power t! and a strength perfectly invulnerable to all coa- 1 ? lltions. She numbers thirty-Ave millions of people, all speaking the same language?animated j by the same his orieal ideas?gazing onward upon C the same future?united under the same single 1 p g verntnent. She can defend her nationality and | " present existence against any ooalition against 1 * her. "Ibe eocidtntal overthrow of Napoleon at' '] waumoo, wai merely an exoep'ion, not in the | d liv of historical precedents. But I am afraid ! L i tis Philippe, notwithstanding his great practi- | tl c I knowledge in politics, wants that moral stb- | JJ lunityof mind to put himself at the head of the ti n /bleat end most powerful ideas ol France. The h King, is, indeed, a man of great tact and sa- i B gmity, but in point of intellect he resembles, I * think, what Mr. Van Buren developed in Ameri- ! -j can politics. The King is the master spirit of the > present government, and has given his impulses | to 'i cabinet, in both foreign and domestic h(- J U rs. When the annexation of Texas was mooted j I in the United States, the Kiag induced his minis- 1 ters to follow in the footsteps of England, and to make an effort to prevent the accomplishment of that measure This conduct of the French govern, inent was exceedingly unpopular among the French people, for if there was any popular feel- J ing on the subject, it was decidedly in favor of the A -~~i: _r TU.?? - 1 ?~ ? m puucy ui snncjiaiiuii. AIIUB, OIPU, IU the Mexican war, although the government journals?the./o*r7ia/dfi Dibatt, and others?censure the United States, yet I have no doubt what- ' ever but the popular opinion of France is decided i ly against Mexico and in lavor of the American I government. Guiz >t is a man of the highest order | of pure intellect?comprehensive, benevolent, pro- j gressive, somewhat; but he is cramped and i warped by the narrower and more practical pur- ' poses of the King, who has given his own impres- : sions and his own directions to the system oi go- j venunent organized here since 1880 This system will .not long suit the aspiring impulses of the French jieople. Ttose impulses are repressed, not eradicated. For the last seventeen years, the genius and thoughts of the nation havo been turned, by the infinite tact of the King, tn'oa narrow channel, that never could have been credited at the era of his accession. I have much to say on theso points. ? The Condition of Things In Northern Mexico?What will become of Vanta Anna.' We publish in to-day's Herald, tor the tliird time, we believe, au engraving representing the scene of the military operations >n Mexico. We insert it now for the purpose of showing that provided Gen. Taylor has succeeded in reaching Monterey, of which there oan perhaps be little doubt, and hat if our commanders and the ad- 1 ministration at Washington will act promptly, and take advantage of the ciroumstanoes that have recently oocurred at Saltillo, kc. kc., that a blow can, with compatative ease, be struck which will confer honor and glery on our flag, ' destroy or capture the whole ef the Mexican army, and undoubtedly accomplish a peace within a very short time. We earn, by the last accounts lrom that quar- ' i ter, that General Taylor was on his way to Mon- ! terey, followed by the Mexican army under Santa ' ; Anna. At Monterey, there are, probably, at the ! 1 present time, about six thousand Americans, and within a short time they will be reinforced with from ten to twelve tneujand regulars and volun. j eers, under the bill recently passed, as well as inder the requisition recently made by Colonel d yurtis on the Southern States nearest to the scene f if war. This will make a lorce of eighteen <1 bousand men. It is more than probable that Vera Cruz and 8 I. Juande Ullia are in eur possession by this J ime. Therefore, if General Scott has received u idings of the straightened circumstances in..(jj vhich General Taylor is placed, he can, after h ilacing a sufficient garrison there, say from five to J? even thousand men, tranship ?ho remainder of lis lorce to Tampico?direct his course to San juis, and with his lorce and that of General Tay- J' or, hem in Santa Anna's army, by occupying all n he passes leading from the Rio Grande to *! outhern Mexixo, and cut the whole Mexican p trmy to pieces or capture them, Santa Anna j! tnd the leg included. g If this plan could be carried out, peace, as a * natter of course, would follow immediately.? w Mexico could not raise another army; her morale r vould be destroyed ; and her army cut up or * ;aptured, and her greatest strongholds in our pos- jj tession. She would be completely in our power* ? uid, of course, be oompelled to sue for peace on * tended knees. * But we must see what General Scott will do. tl li ntuiosi. t Italian OrcRA. -The encouragement which ths ma- { lagers of the Italian Opera hare met with daring the iresent season, has induced them to open books for sub- a icriptions to a second season of eighteen nights. It is J o be beped that the books will be filled up with the re- 1 [uisite number of names, and that the laudable enter- I >i ise of Signer Sanquirico, in giring to us operas whieh c ire operas, will meet with the reward which it deserres. \ We are happy to be able to state that it is the datermi- ' lation of Signor S., if the patronage heretofore extended 1 :o the company should be continued, to risit Italy and ' angage additional artists, who, with those already upon the boards here, will form a oompany fully competent < to tho production of ail the grand operas which are pro- 1 luced for the gratification of European audiences. This t arrangement, if made at all. will be a permanent one, and I if consummated will gire to us what we shall feel is our i own opera. The foresight of the Signor in this matter, will, we hare no doubt, prove to hare baen accurate.? There is nothing like getting the trst start ; and the favorable impression which the trewpt now with us has mada upon the minds of their en- I diences, is an exoellent starting point. Ws hare now in our city lorars of pure music fa sufllcient number* to support handsomely a permanent operatic establishment But enough ha* been seen of the peculiar dispoaition of I theae audience* to warrant the oonelusion that they will I accept ol nothing but the bast performances. We are 1 growing fastidious?perhaps too much se?but tbe truth ] is, that we hare heretofore been imposed upon by strangers of large pretension* and small merit; and the oatoh ' iniiiii; Luuijvmmri i>i nm naiieri mi ai lengin won ad a care of the evil iteelf, only leaving u?, perhape, > little toe much jnelined to be eevere judge*.

This i* the kind of aucceaa of which thia company may well be proud. The muaic ia there, and the artiata have proved themaelvea fully equal to the taak of bringing it out. A decided improvement waa apparent laat evening ia excluding the band, which ha* formerly boen Intro luced upon the atage.

Paviro ihi Streets.?At the approach of the spring lection?in order to make some snow?the ''coble" tones that are used in paving the streets, are plucked up nd are again set down, as if in mockary of the ordinary lode of paving.

The speaker then reviewed the aeveral i school law*, reciting tho different atatutea in each which ' applied to the subject under diacuiaion, which ha con1 tended very diatiuctly pointed out the power*, dutia*, I and authorities of the Board of Education One of the** | dutiea wa* that this Board was probibitad from is-uing or appropriating any more than th* necessary and legal I expense* of thn schools. and at tba and of aacb year they were enjoined to lodge any balance in their hand* 1 in tne city treasury, to the credit of the Common Council. From tbie data be contended tbat the Legislature never intended to authorize the Public Sohool Society to purchaae lot* and erect (choola. with the balance* in their hand*. Mr Boiworth concluded by offering the following retolntion Ra*olv*d, That in the opinion of the Board of Education, the Public School Society ha* no right, ainca the passage of the act entitled " An act more effectually to provide the common school education in th* city and county of New York," pasaed May 7th, 1044, to establish any new school entitled to participate in the a pportionaent of the school moneys, which was adopted with only one dissentient. The same gentleman next offered the following resolution: Tbat the Publio School Society be notified of th* ' proceedings of this evening, together with a request that they furnish th* information required by the resolution

or this board, of the 11th of February last, which was nJopted. Mr Com'r. Nicoll offered the following resoution:? ResolveJ, That i he remarks of Joseph Bosworth, Esq., in reply to the argument undo in oehalf of the Public School Society, be printed under the direction of the Board Mr Vims r saiil it urae well bnnarn (till tka firfflimnnt of the learned gentlem><n who bad addressed the board on the part of the Publiu School Society, bee reoeived a very extensive circulation. It waa unnecessary for him to aay that the reply waa conclusive, and exhausted the whole aubject He thought it waa due to thia Board aa well aa to Mr Boaworth that hia reply ahould get equal publicity, and upon that ground be offered the resolution. The question waa then put, and the reaolution waa adopted. Mr Fellows then offered the following reaolution:? Kesolved, That in the opinion of the Board of education, all money a apportioned by aaid board to the schools or sooiety entitle I to receive the same, aocordlng to the 13th section of the act. entitled "An act more effeotually to provide for common sohool education in the city and county of New York," passed May 7, 1844, can only be legally expended bv said schools or aooietiea, for the purpose of defraying the current annual expenses of common school education. After a short discuaaion It waa laid on the table, and made the order for the next meeting. The board then adjourned to thia day week. Police Intelligence.

Price* must toon feel tho influence of reduced receipUi and the effect of a falling off in the exports must aooa how itself in the European market*. What have heretofore been considered mere rumor* and speculative reports, will soon become stern reality; manufacturers and peculators on tho other side have not yet realised tha deficiency in tho supply of the raw material, which actually exists. Until they begin to soe or feel that thare is foundation for all the reports whioh have reached them, prices cannot improve much; but as tha time is not far distant whan they will get their eyas open, holders on this side can afford to wait, as the advanoo must be ultimately vary great Tho deficiency In tho supply of cotton will not, In onr opinion, cease with tho close of this sosson, even in the event of the soed now going into the ground, producing I ? . *k> > aaa^Mwc AMisa tVia vacalnia tkig uiuiv iawi mu swerngv v,vr' *? * muoq, equal (he moat liberal estimate, and the nggre (ate consumption in the world for the next *ix monthi bo equal to that of the tlx monthi Juat psat, the whale supply mnat bo completely u?ed up, atock, receipta, and all. In tbia oaae there will be nothing to fall beckon, and it would require several eery Urge cropa to get up theexceaa to a safe point. The consumption of cotton ia increaaing with greater rapidity in tbia country, than even tboie engaged in the builneaa imagine, and the quantity required in the course of another year or two ,to aatiafy the home demand, will be ao great that i mnat exert a very great influence upon pricea both in the United States and in Oreat Britain. We have re doubt but that the consumption of cotton in this oeuntry will, in 1848, be equal to seven hundred thousand bales? about ene-third of the entire crop. The consumption in Great Britain now is equal to about two-thirds of the crop of this country, and if the increase in Europe keeps pece with that of the United States, it will be pretty difllcult to tell where the supply can be obtainsdThe production of the world will not suffice for the consumption, and the manufacturers of those countries supplying foreign markets must feel the e (frets o( a short supply more than those whose fabrics are con aumed at home. A short supply of cotton must (all more injuriously upon the manufacture! s of Great Britain than upon those of this country, as we can provide ourselves flrst and more easily with the raw material. The production of cotton in the United States has nearly reached its maximum increase; we ray nearly, by whieh we mean that the erep cannot increase for ten years te ' come, the per cent established by the production of the ten j years past. There have been, within the past few years 1 many cotton plantation* convenes into sugar puma, i tion*, and on many othar plantation* larger quantitie* of grain have been grown than uatial. in the place of cotton. All theao movements tend to a reduction In the supply of cotton, oven in the moat favorable season*. It is our Impression that the annual percent increase in the growth of cotton in the United States during the past ten yeara, will not average eo much as the annual per cent I increase in the oonsumption for the same period In the 1 country.

Buy. era of lilour were disposed, intbafaee of the vary low stocks in the city, combined with the proipect of the early resumption of river navigation, and the advanced rate* of freights, to operate sparingly. The chief pur. chases were, consequently, made for future delivery, at a reduction of prices in proportion to the extension of time. The amount of flour and grain awaiting shipment at Albany and intermediate paints, is said te be large; but it is believed a very large share, if net the greater part of it, l^s already been sold far future delivery and lor export reaohing the eity. There can be no very axtsnsive augmentation or auppliaa (uneold) till th? opening of tha Erie canal, next month. Aa the Pennsylj vtnia canals kept open longer in autumn than theae ef New York, the country depending upon them for an out' let wtt more fully drained, and hence, there will not be as large receipts early thia apring, through them, aa if ; they had cloied earlier in tha aearon. The acaroity of | vessels, with enhanced freighta, will alao tend to oheck , the movement of Southern flour to thia port.
