Paris, March 27, 1847. \ few days ago, Mile. Hippolyte Mars, a very el 'irated actresH in high comedy, during the rev. : ition, the consulate, the empire, the restoratiou, and I may also say the revolution No. 2, or that of the present dynasty, came to hei latter nd at the close of a very long and curious life. In 1838, when 1 was first in Paris, she appeared at)the Theatre Frantjais, at the age of sixty and over. It was her last benefit, and farewell to the French stage. She had in her old age wasted the fortune made in youth, upon some worthless lovers, and she was induced to make a last appearance then to recruit her almost empty coffers. She died at the age of seventy, or thereabouts, at her residence in the rue Lavoisier, und was buried yesterday with great pomp and parade, but not exactly so much military display as that which accompanied the funeral of M. Martin du Nord, late one of the cabinet. 1 attended the obsequies and the funeral, and was much interested in the style in which it was 1 got up. All the artists, male and female, con* nected with the theatres of Paris, were invited to the funeral. Some of the principal thoatrps were ahut up and hung in black?the Theatre Francais for one. They met at her residence, and went in procession with the corpse to the magnificent church of the Madeleine, which was also nung in Diaca crape. urn.- wie religious obsequies was performed?her soul was prayed for, and admitted into heaven. The tnusic of the choir?the gloom of the church?the glimmering lights in that vast interior? the crowds inside and round about, gave the ceremony considerable splendor and magnificence?not to say mystery and religious pomp. Mile. Ilachel, and ull the principal artists were there. After this part of the ceremonies had been completed, the corpse, with the procession, took up tho line for Ptre la Chaite. Here a number of funeral orations were pronounced over her remains, recounting her great genius, her remarkable life, and the lustre she had shed on the French Stage. The corpse was lowered into the tomb, the stone put over, the crowd dispersed, and every one went home to dinner. The career of Mile. Mars was thus finished for this werld. Iler career in life was quite remarkable. In the hey-day of youth, beauty and genius, she was considered the greatest actress, in the higher order of comedy, that ever had graced the French stuge, even a greater than MUe. Claison. 8he had tried tragedy, but did not succeed. Indeed tragedy, as the English or American understands it, don't exist on the Preneh stage. French tragedy is nothing but declamation?not natural noting. 1 have seen KachH herself, and her acting is only a series of declamations on the passions of the very highest kind, pronounced in very eloquent rhymes.? French tragedy is naturally artificial, and thus prevents Rachel from taking that line of conduct which eorresponds with her genius, her power and her temper. But if I condemn French tragedy as an artificial and unnatural production, always delivered in rhyme, I must give the palm to French comedy over that of England, America, or Germany, as heing more natural, more life-like, more delightful, and presenting the finest displays of genius, wit, fine manners, and knowledge of the world. In this line, Mile. Mars is acknowledged to have been superior to any artist that ever appeared on the French stage, since the time of Mile. Claison, of the last century. Mile. Mars was the dnughter of an ordinary actor of the same theatre?his name was first iktot, then Monvel, '?ul how she came to take the nHine of Mara, I do not understand; I suppose front her mother. During the first revolution of France, the stag1 increased tremendously in rnmber, hut sunk into a low state of degrada'i n. In 17% there were fifty theatres in action. ind, talent, leisure, idleness, amhition, pleasure, villany, virtue, and humbug, were all turned, foi several years, to politics, newspa(iers and theatres. When Napoleon became First Consul, he began to regulate the press and the theatres, by restricting their number, and limiting their operations. In 1H07 the theatres were reduced to ten only. It was during this period thnt Mile. Mars began to create the great reputation in the line of high comedy. Napoleon lavished his favors upon har, and for a time she was the mistress of the First Consul and First Emperor, for, according to all the accounts published in the brochure* sold in the stalls round Paris, Napoleon was as dissolute in his private life as he was unprincipled in politics, and great as a wnrrior and in the pursui of power for his own aggrandizement. She had u daughter by Napoleon, but she died very young, and has a tomb stone in I'rrr la Chaise inscribed the daughter of Mile. Mars. Mile. Mars made un immense fortune, retired from the sfatre verv rich, opened a large private hotel or town houae, net up her equipage, gave splendid f(tr?, and kept a lover, a* mostly hII the other moral and distinguished artists of France and Italy do. In f>rmany and England there is a little more decency Jenny Lind is said to he perfectly pure in her private life. Well, this lover, who was much younger than Mars, and was a Count, or Baron, contrived to spend the most of her fortune, so that her latter days were spent in comparative poverty in a small apartment in the rtte Lavoititr. Her farewell appearance, which took place in 1B88, to which I have nlready alluded, was got up to procure a little fund for her old age. She is now gone. Her funeral obsequies were as magnificent as those of a saint or a cabinet minister, and her remains were placed side by side with Talma, naar the other celebrntpd persons in the burying ground of Ptrt In Chain. where also repose the ashes of Abelnrd and Eloise. The French stage is a remarkable institution, and the French artists are equally a remarkable cla in of society. There are at thiaday twenty-four or twenty-six theatres in Paria and the environa, failed the ban!tmt The four principal of those I ' theatres receive $250,000 a year, fey way of gratuity, from the government, to rapport them.? These four are the Academic lloyal, (French Grand Opera,) the Theatre Fran^ais, the t)|?era Comique, and the Odeon. All the other theatres support themselves on their incomes. Another important rule is observed with these theatres.? liacli house is confined to the performances of such description of theatrical pieces as are permitted by the patent, which they receive from the government, on payment of u certain sum of money. Tragedy, comedy, vaudeville, farce, opera, bullet, pantomime, horsemanship, spectacle, puppet-show, are all performed at various theatres according to law, and are restricted to these places. No theatre is allowed to perform what is not permitted by its charter. Theatrical amusements have had many vicissitudes in Paris, but of late years they have increased very much, as political agitation has ceased. The following is a curious table :? Yeari. Theatre t. Receipts. Yeart. Theatrei. Receipt t 1811 10 t,9IO(l87f. 18V) 13 J,76l,63fif. 1821 13 6,103,348 1R32 16 4,2*1,038 1820 13 6,316,321 1812 19 8,130,770 It will be seen from this that a revolution in Paris affects the receipts of the theatres to a very injurious extent. In times of peace and order the people must be amused with dramatic representations. At this day probably the aggregate annual receipts of the druma in Paris amounts to ten millions of francs, or two millions of dollars ?probably more than double the annual receipts of the theatres in New York. The theatres here furnish the principal and most lucrative employment for niHsicians and dramatic authors. New plays of every kind, if they have merit und success, yield to he writers vast sums of money. A portion of the proceeds of every performance, during a certain period of time, is secured to the author, in every theatre of France. Some popular dramas have yielded $10,000, an'l some $12,000, to the author. There is also a constant demand made by the theatres, upon authors, for articles of novelty. Probably one-half of the population of Paris spend their evenings at theatres, and nothing in the dramatic line will succeed but talent, novelty, and genius. A genius for dramatic writing is sure to succeed against all opposition. Other descriptions of literature, with a few exceptions, such as Thiers, Sue, and Guizot, are poorly paijd. The Capture or Alvarado, &c.?Wo publish to-day an account of the capture of Alvarado? and also the capture of the town of Fla-co-Talpum, by Lieut. Hunter, and the gallant officers and crew of the little steamer Scourge. It was a splendid affiiir. The U. S. steamer Scourge arrived with one gun, and with a crew of less than one hundred men succeeded in capturing these places without any difficulty, after a brief bombardment. We learn that the gallant Hunter is to be court martinlled, for going beyond the powers delegated to him by Commodore l'erry. He was directed merely to blockade Alvarado, but instead of doing so he captured it, and a town of 5,000 inhabitants besides. What punishment will be inflicted on him I Interesting better from Oen. Iaylok.? We publish on the outside of this day's paper a letter from Old Hough and lteady to General E. G. W. Butler. Everything that is written by that remarkable man' is read with the greatest avidity, and treasured up as a memento of one of the greatest men of modern times. That part which relates to his being nominated for the Presidency is worthy of particular notice, and we hope it will receive the especial attention of our readers. It will convince all that General Taylor will consent to run as the candidate of no party, whig or locofoco. Theatricals. Pahk Tii tat sc.?Mrs. Mason last evening appeared at Che Park in the character of Mrs. Oakley, in the comedy of the " Jealous Wife." Air. Wheatley personated Mr. Oakley, and the other charactors were admirably sustained by the members of the company. Mrs. Mason's performances last evening, only renewed the feeling of admiration on the part of the audience, in whose favorable regard she already sustained a high placo. There was a tolerable good attendance, and the applause with which her efforts wero reoeived, told plainly enough how the actreas stood in the estimation of her auditors. Mrs. Mason certainly has a wonderful versatility of talent, being equally able to move her audience to tears, by calling out their softer sympathies, to rack tl .eir sides with laughter at her comical sallies. Tho performances last evening concluded with the farce of the "Critic, or the Tragedy Rehearsed." Mr. O. Barrett playing ruff, and Mr. Bass taking the part of Sir Fretful Plagiary. This is a capital farce, and rarely falls into more competent hands than those mentioned above. Mr. Barrett's Puff is certainlv a capital thins, and we do not recollect to have seen a better Sir Fretful than Mr. Bane. To-night we aro to bare the " Lady of Lyona," with Mrs. Mason in Pauline, and Mr. Wheatley in Claude Mclnottr. Bowr.av Thmtu.?This will be the fifth night of Mra. shaw'a engagement. Thus far she has been repaired with rapturous applause, and haa drawn as large audiences as the Bowery Theatre could poaalbly contain. Her engagement baa been, and we hare no doubt that it will continue to be. a triumphant one. In fact, Mra. Shaw'a talents are so wall appreciated, and she herself la so deservedly popular with the patrons of the Bowery, that whenever she appears on that stage she surely draws together her numerous admirers from ail parts of the city, up town as well las downtown. She will appear again this evening In the tragedy of "Ion." All who havo not seen her in this great character will doubtleas see her this evening. Tho tragedy of " Six Degrees of Crime " will form the afterpiece. Bowr.av Ciaccs.?We believe that this evening la appointed for the benefit of Mr. Win. B. Carroll, and, if we mistake not, the receipts will be as large as on any former occasion, if not larger. If novelty haa any part in swelling the receipts, we should say that they will be larger this evening than they were on any evening this season. Our citlxcns will for the first time havo an opportunity of seeing a superb team of elks driven around the arena before a magnificent war chariot. We have not room to montlon a tenth part of the attractions that are put forth hern for this evening. All we can any is, that a greater host of talent haa volunteered, and there will be a greater variety of performances at the cirous this evening, than perhaps ever ocrurrod on any former occasion. Ma. Ai.ctamdkr.?One night's attendance at the Minervn Rooms will convince the most sceptical that Mr. Alexander is, beyond except ion, one of the most accomplished necromancers that has visited our shores in a number of years. Ills feats are truly extraordinary, and will deceive the most experienced. Although he is aided considerably In many of his tricks by his know, ledge of magnetism, mechanism. Itc ike., yet his tricks are astonishing, and will astonish nil who witness them. We recommend our cltlxens to see this great and wonderful man before he leaves the city. The Viennolse children appeared at tho Holliday street Theatre. Baltimore, on Tuesday evening, and created l lie usual sensation which their presence upon the stage never foils to produce. Madam Augusta was to appear at the Rt. Charles theatre. New Orleans, on the 14th, In the ballet of "NaJ thalle," supported by Lehmanns. The theatrical company of Hart St Wells, arrived at Vera C ru* on the! evening of the 6th Inst., and were to commence operations immediately. It is said that Madame Weiss and her friends were subjected to brutal treatment on the evening of her late arrnat at Wilmington It ia even aaid that Mulamr W I waa aubject to pcraonal vlolenro at the hands of aoiucof tha peraona engaged in the affair, and bar frlrnda wore mora or laaa brulaad and mnrked by tho ruffianly trratinant they receired from the real or pretended offlaera.

Tha Philadelphlan* had a grand illumination on MonJ'lj'l'11 TuMie office*, hotel*, and many private l ulldlngh ware Illuminated ami there was a grand Joy M?icfci. I Italian Oim -Wf are sorry to learn that Slgnorina Barlll la yet too ill to sing. In consequence of which It has become necessary to change the bill for this evening. Instead therefore of " Lucresia Borgia," we are to have the " Barber of Seville.'' AU who feel an interest in the opera will be pained to hear of Signorina Barili's continued indisposition, although we doubt not thut many would as soon listen to the " Barber of Seville" as to " Lucresia Borgia." We shall have Pico who Is always welcome, aud the evening will l>e admirably filled with good eutertulnmciit. We hope Barili will be in voice for to-murrow night, on which occasion it will be remembered Big. Benedetti tukos his benefit. Swiss Bell Rimuers.?Notwithstanding the variety of attraction with which the city abounds at the present time, the Campunalogiuns. or Swtiii Bell Kingers, maintain the stand they formerly occupied. Vlght after night they perform before delighted audiences, night after night they receive unbounded applause from all who attend their wonderful performances. It would be strange indeed if it were not so. They have travelled over the principal part of tho United States, and also the West Indies, since lost winter, and have now come back to us with more laurels than they can possibly find room to wear. They appear again this evening, and have determined to perform many of our favorite airs. Castle Garden.?Wo understand thut this favorite resort is opened for the accommodation of the public.? This will be good news to the down-town residents of our city, as well as to all who spent many plcusaut evenings in it last summer. On Sunday evening next there will be a grand sacred ooncort given, in the same these concerts were given last year. Mr. Brough intends to return to America shortly, to mako His Home ncre. City Intelligence. The Weather.? Yesterday was quite a summers day. The thermometer at Wall stood at 78 degrees. In some parts of the city oyer 80 degrees. The Macedonian.?The Brooklyn corporation wore to have visited this splendid United States ship, now lading with provisions for the Irish poor, yesterday at 3 o'clock. They had not arrived at the appoiuted hour, nor up to 5 o'clock, owing to some cause. The vessel is filling up rapidly with provisions?particularly since the arrival of the late news by the Boston steamer. Com. DeKay is indefatigable in his exertions. Found.? A blue check wallot, containing about three pounds of black and green tea. was picked up yesterday In the Park, near the entrance gate fronting St. Paul's Church, by a gentleman who stated he would leave it at the lower police station house with Capt. MoOrath. It Is supposed to have been lost by a poor person who was sent to purchase it. Bled to Death.?Coroner Walters was called yesterday to bold an inquest at No. 88 Cherry street, on the body of Joseph Urlfflths, a native of Lngland, aged 33 years, who arrived in this city on Tuesday last in the ship John Kavcncl, from Liverpool, and died yesterday morning. The deceased after being at sea for about live weeks, had a (It that lasted for three hours, from which time his constitution seemed to give way; and when within 6 or 7 days sail of New York, he commenced bleeding at the nose. At first ho did not lose much blood, but it daily increased In quantity until he died, from exhaustion produced by loss of blood. Verdict accordingly. Celebration at Last.? There is to be a special meeting of the Board of Assistant Aldermen to-night (at 7 o'clock?) the object of which is understood to be, to concur with the Board of Aldermen, in appointing a joint oommlttee to make arrangements to celebrate, in a suitable manner, the glorious victories achieved by American arms in Mexico. Novel Case of Preservation bt Salt.?Coroner Walters was called last evoning to hold an inquest upon the body of a female Infant six months old, that died on board the ship Kpervier about threo weeks ago, while the vessel was on her passage from Antwerp to this city. But instead of flndinir the hndv of the child In a state of decomposition, to the utter astonishment of all it preeented all the freshness it possessed at the time or its death after a abort nickneHH. From the evidence adduced before the Coroner, it appeared that tlio parent* of the child, a young Belgian, named Bernard Philllpe. and hia wife, could not bear the idea of committing their offspring to the "deep blue sea," but resolved to prescrvo it if possible until their arrival here, bo an to inter it in consecrated ground. With this object in view, the infant (who came to its death by diseaHO of the lungs, arising from a cold taken on the day of embarkation) wan placed in a box. and then covered with fine salt (a small piece of linen cloth being placed over the face only) the box was then nailed down, and every seam Ntopped with cotton wool. The box was next sewed up in sail cloth, and the whole put into a trunk, which was kept seeured until the coroner prococded to investigate the cause of death yesterday. Found Dead in a Vessel.?Yesterday morning, as some men proceeded to cleur out the ship J. Ravenel, which arrived from Liverpool on Tuesday last, they found one of the steerage passengers dead in his berth. The other passengers left the vessel at the foot of Pike street on Tuesday night, and how long the man had been dead is unknown, lie appears to bo an Irishman about 60 years old ; hut no information could be 'gathered as to his name or place of destination. Brooklyn City Intelligence. An Intf.ndkd Duel.?There was to have been an interesting affair, in the shape of a duel, on Wednesday afternoon last, between a couple of youths of South Brooklyn.

The system of warehousing, In connection with our Import trade, has been In operation nearly nine months, and even in tnat snort psriod it nas proved to dm a very important and necessary branch of our commercial system. The time it has been In operation, has hardly been sufficient to illustrate all the beauties of the plan, it has so far only been connected with our import trade; and merchandise intended for consumption in our own markets, has been the only items warehoused. In the busy seasou of the year, when all our markets are active, and particularly when the importation has In the aggregate been unusually limited, there is not so good an opportunity to test the system as at other times. We shall derive great benefits from this warehousing act, in connection with our export trade, as it will save all the trouble of the former plan in obtaining drawbacks. It will make this port the general depot for the accumulation of products from all parts of the world, for the purpose of reshlpment, in connection with our own products, to foreign ports more in our Immediate vieinlty. The commerce of other nations will centre here for the purpose of obtaining supplies, Instead of voyaging all over the world to make up the required assortment. Through the operation of the warehousing system, we shall become to a great extent the carriers for all other nations. The books of the warehousing bureau in this district, made up to the end of the first quarter of 1847, show that goods have been warehoused to the amount in total value, at involoe cost, of. $1,308,501 Total duty chargeable on the same is found to average about 38 per cent, and amounts to.. 530,000 The average length of time that goods remain in warehouse is estimated to be as yet but abeut four months. It most, however, bo considered that the seasons have not been fhvorable for a protracted storage of foreign guuuB, iu? uviuftuu irvui iua vi?uu unviug ui-vu uiuvu greater than the supply. Upon the data furnished by the operations of this system, for the first eight months, it appears that, at the legal rate of interest, the amount of money that will be virtually saved to the merchants by the warehousing done in the past quarter, estimating the* period of stowage at four months on the averago, is $13,400. In addition to this estimate, the amount which was warehoused previous to the 1st of January, from the passage of the aot on the 6th of August last, say five months, in the same ratio, will make in interest $30,600 Making a total saving of interest during the first eight months of tho system, of $33,000 This estimate, at Interest rates, is in fact a real saving, as much of the principal wont to increase the business capital of the merchant, a capital in actlvo operation in commercial pursuits, on whicn too pronts range rrom 15 to 36 per oent. It would, thereforo, be safe to double the amount, and say that the actual amount of benefit accruing to the commerce of this city, during the first eight months of warehousing, is equivalent to a net profit of $64,000. For the first year of the system, ending tho 6th of August next, the benefit will at this rate amount to a profit, in round numbers, of $100,000. This, in the very infancy of the system, when its very existence is comparatively unknown abroad, and the Importations warehoused are only those of the ordinary home trade, and composed of goods which would have been otherwise duty paid at once for consumption, and whon it was necessarily imperfectly administered, furnishes grounds for anticipating an increase to a very flattering extent, and increasing in each succeeding year in a ratio far beyond that of the ordinary business transactions of the day. Judging from the snocess which has attended the establishing of a warehousing system in other oommercial countries, we have not the slightest doubt but that a few years will suffice to place ours upon a firm foundation. Tho transit trade of Canada, through the United Btates, will be much increased and facilitated by this system, and under tho judioious administration of the present head of this department in the Custom House of this port, we havo no doubt but that its operation will be so simplified, and beooine so generally known and adopted, that it will prove to be one of the most Important commercial movements of the age in this part of the world. Of the $1,368,601 in merchandise warehoused for the quarter ending March 31, 1847, $800,383 were withdrawn during the quarter, and $668,110 remained in warehouse at the close. Of the goods warehoused $300,000 were in cottons, $103,000 in linens, $354,000 in silks, and $131,000 in woollens.

The returns for March 37th compared with those for March 30th, exhibit an increase in tho circulation of ?36.5.146; an increase in the public deposits of 144,6644., a decrease of other deposits of 669,304/., an inorease of securities of 173,481/., a decrease of bullion of 316,047/., an Increase In the rest of 8,9391., and a decrease in the reserve of ?691,183. The amount of bullion In both departments wag, at the latest date, ?11,016,683. The Bank of England appears to be losing from two to three hundred thousand pounds sterling per week, and no effort is made to arrest the drain. At the end of April the . bullion on hand will be much less than it was at the end of March, as the drain for the month for the United States alone, was estimated as high as one million sterling.
