To-day the spring begins among the idle and tashionable people of Paris. The opening lasts j f/\r ?K roa dai'u on/I ia /lulu linnntinpfii in the* \ ? ?/-I "?? newspapers. This beginning, or commencement, or opening of the spring, consists of a fashionable promenade of all the gay people, in their new costumes, between the hours of two and five o'clock in the afternoon, in the avenue of Long Champ*, of the Hoi? de Boulogne, just outside the great triumphal arch of Napoleon, at the Barriere d'Etoile. This avenue of Long Champ* is only one of the numerous wulks or promenades in the Woods ol Boulogne; but it is one of the longest. When the trees there are covered with the foliage of summer, the place is delightful. It is the greut rendezvous of all the gay, the fashionable, the idle, the silly, the rich, and the well-dressed in Paris. The Champa, inside the barrier, is frequented by some of the rich, but it is also thickly strewed with people of all conditions. The Boi* de Boulogne is the Hyde Park of Paris. There is nothing in New York exactly to correspond to these public places. Harlem and Bloorningdalo, though good enough tor driving and horsemanship, yet have no elegant promenades, where people can get out in crowds and walk. Hoboksn is peculiar and delightful, possessing more natural scenery than any public place in any of the large cities of Europe, u/ith ihn c.ilitnrv (>tcfnlinn nf Prmrue. in Hohe mia; but th?re in no room or convenience for exercise on horseback in the same locality as with the promenaders. Paris at this period turns out its fashionable crowds in theirs pring costumes for three days, at Long Champs. This is also the close of Lent, and with Easter Sunday begins a new season of feasting, dancing, soirees, and gaiety,which lasts through the month of April. It is the last month ' of the fashionable season, and the Purisiuns ( generally crowd as much gaiety into the few re- I maining weeks as possible. The salons of the J ministers and ambassadors are again open. The t leading literary people, poets, and philosophers, , and even some editors, aiso have their evenings, i devoted to talk, wit, scandal, and eau sucre. The J bankers and high financiers, including the bro- < kers (agens du change), who are great men here, and rich too, give their closing gorgeous parties, full of fashion, beauty, expense and grandeur. Even the court of Louis Philippe and the new noblesse follow the spirit and temper of the day, not forgetting the old noblesse of the last century, who yet stick to the exploded traditions of the age of Louis XIV., and despise everything modern. I have received a number of invitations for Mrs. B. for the coming week ; but she is already performing her orisoiiB to the Vicegerant of Heaven on earth, to his Holiness the Pope, the modern Antichrist, or the modern ass, according to the creed and temper of the Protestant believer. Thus we go in Paris. The last of the season will be the gayest, the choicest, the best. We may not have the questionable excesses of the bait matqui or of mardi grat, or of the scores of other places of mixed amusement; but we may have finer taste, and more propriety of conduct. After the close of the fashionable season in Paris, commences that of London. Neither 1 buds nor balls, neither potatoes nor polkas, neither carrots nor quadrilles, come so early in the season in Loudon as in Paris. After the close of the one season in Paris, many go to London, to finish with the gaieties of the other across the channel. Already the Italian Opera has left us. The house was closed a few evenings since. Grisi, Lablache, Mario, are gone to London, to begin the season there. Jenny Lind, from Vienna, is expected here every day, on her way to London. Whether she will stop a few days and sing in Paris I know not; but if she do, sh? will create a prodigious sensation. Jenny Lind is now considered the sole queen of song in Europe. Grisi has had her day, and is now pattfe. Others have had their days. Jenny Lind is the divinity, undisputed, at this time. But the closing of the Italian opera does not clone the saloni of music. We have the Academie Royal (grand opera in French,) and also the Optra Comiqut. We have concerts in any quantity, and of every quality. At the Grand , Opera there have been great internal trouble and | insurrection. The consequence is that Madame ( Stultz, a very excellent artist, has resigned. Upon this event the feuillelonittt, or musical cri- , tics, in the newspapers, write column on column, , comparing her note of resignation to that of Na- ( poleon's ut the close of the hundred days. There ( is no end to the fun which the newspaper critics here make ot every event in the musical, theatrical, or fashionable world. We are all on the qui vive here for the arrival of Mr. Rush, as new Minister to the Court of France. His appointment has been a surprise. No one expected such an excavation from the olden fields of diplomacy. Hut he has had experience tnany years ago in London, and gave that experience to the public in a very amusing book, which broke the seals of diplomatic secresy without hesitation. I expect that he will keep a similar faithful historical record during his residence at the Court of Louis Philippe. He may give us the " Last Days of the Reign of the Ring of the Barricades." These things do good, because they show the littleness of diplomacy? the uselessness of such a system, and the necessity of an entire revolution in that mode of international intercourse. When the United States have really any business of importance to transact with another nation, they should appoint a minister of the highest rank, with a salary of 1 the hiuhest rank?even as much ? nnn f??r ? single year. American ministers abroad cannot meet, on an equal footing, the ministers of other I nations, at less cost, without rendering them- ' selves and their country the laughing stock of the world. When there is nothing but ordinary , business to transact, a consul or diplomatic | agent, with a reasonable salary, is quite sufficient for all purposes. j Mr. Martin, who has filled the post ef Charge > < dee Affairte since the departure of Mr. King, 1 1 has given great satisfaction to his countrymen, and will leave them with their regrets. Mr. In- 1 gersoll (of Connecticut,) the new Minister to Russia, has been here all the winter, but will ( leave about these fine days for his destination. Mr. Wheaton, formerly Minister at Berlin, is stiH in Pans; but he will return to New York in f the course of a few months. Mr. Wheaton t stands high, and deservedly so, among the philo- p eophers and literary men of Europe. The last twenty years of his life, with the exception of fl thoso hours devoted to his mission, have been f spent in philosophical investigations of a histori- r eal nature. He enjoys a high reputation in Ger- 5 many, and generally in Europe. 1 Many Americans, male and female, aw tliey t i have been created, who have been travelling ' ' over Europe for several years past, are about returning home during the ensuing spring and J summer. Among them are several young ladies, i L. mmmmmmmmmtrnrnmLi .i ' * of greet beauty and accompli?hment-', n>me w?th large fortunes, and seme with large expectation*. There are, also, many old gentlemen and old ladies, to whom the novelty and excitement of travelling have given a fresh lease of life, and fresh color to the cheeks. Many fresh travellers, of both sexes, are constantly arriving in Paris, from the United States, for the purpose of making the tour of Europe. Indeed, that tour is now easily made, nnd in a few years more it will be easier still. The time is just at hand when one will be able, by means of railroads, to visit all the capitals of Europe?London, Paris, Berlin, St. Petersburg, Vienna, Constantinople, Rome, Venice, 4cc.?during u few weeks in summer. The whole Continent will soon be intersected with railroads, in all directions, and all the sepurate kingdoms and empires will be bound up in the same system of iron and steam. When that takes place, I don't believe that they will be able or disposed to go to war at all. Steam is your only universal peace society. Our Mexican Relations.?We are sorry to see a disposition on the part of the editors opposed to the war and to the administration, throughout the country, to reflect on the character of Mr. Alocha, us they have done with every other agent that the government has employed to take despatches to Mexico. There is no reason for supposing that the government, selecting a person to convey despatches, is prima facie evidence that he is unfit to be trusted, &c.? as they appear disposed to make us believe. We should say that, selecting a gentleman to discharge a duty of that kind, is evidence of his ability and proper qualifications. Because Mr. Atocha was entrusted with despatches which he faithfully and honorably delivered to the persons to whom they were directed, and because, also, he is a friend of Santa Anna, the most unjust imputations are thrown on him. This should not occur Mr. Atocha has resided in this country for many years, and for some time his family have resided in this city. We believe that Mr. A. ranks as high, as a man of probity and honor, as any person in our city. The following article from the Pennsylvaniem relates to him. We ctve it for the sentiments it contains >? [From the Philadelphia Fennsylvanian. April 39.] Extract from a letter from our correspondent in Wa thin gt on, dated 37th -April, 1847. It might be supposed that the opposition press would iavo ceased ere this to circulate reports prejudicial to he admluiatration. without any authority except that >f whig letter writers; for. in every instanco of the tind, theso reports have been nailed to the counter rhen the proper time arrived. The last of these, resting to the alleged diplomatic mission of Mr. Atocha o Mexico, has received its quietus from tho Union of the !3d Inst.. In the following language :?" Wo feel ourlelvet authorised to say, that Senor Atocha was not nvested ' with the high dignity and responsibility pf an American plenipotentiary' to Mexico, as the Delta sup>oses, nor with any diplomatic character whatever. He ?ras merely the bearer of a despatch to the city of Mexico, and in this capacity he faithfully performed his duty." The article from the Delta of Now Orleans, which has been copied into the national Intelligencer, contains reflections upon the character of Mr. Atocna, which, from all I can learn from those who know him best, are without foundation. Although Mr. Atocha was not sent to Mexico upon a mission with diplomatic powers, still the government had ample reason to repose in him the trust he has faithfully executed. The Department of State, you may rust assured, is not in the habit of entrusting despatches of great political importance to mere adventurers; and, in this case, it was perfectly satisfied with the character and ability of the individual in whom it confided. Thus much I have thought proper to say in defence of Mr. Atocha. We trust that this dishonorable way of injuring the party in power, by traducing the character of honorable men, will be put an end to. It is unworthy of the press. If the administration do wrong, abuse them, but let private individuals alone. instructive tike at t lushing, jj. 1.? vv e learn that a fire broke out about 10 o'clock in the morning on Suturday last, in a burn belonging to A. Parks, which soon communicated with hts dwelling, and spreading with astonishing rapidity, in its course carried down every adjoining building. The citizens were quickly to the rescue, and active and energetic in their exertions to save, and all was done that men could do ; but owing to the general drought and want of water, it became necessary to form lines of citizens of both sexes, leuding to the steamboat landing, nearly a'quarter of a mile from the fire, which resulted in staying the flames, and preventing their destructive consequences from crossing Bridge street, and through that prevention alone the principal part of that much admired village hus been saved. The following is a list of the sufferers, with the insurance on the property destroyed : William Hnyiland, Ions $ 14.000, insurance $7,000. A. Parkx, house and shop.

The Trade with Japan.?On the outside of this day's paper will be found an interesting article on Japan, which we extract from the Vat utta Star of the 26th October last. The governments of the old world have enleavored, on many occasions, to open commer ^ial relations with the Japanese, but without success. The government of the United States recently tried to do the same thing, hut failed likewise. In answer to Commodore lliddle's mission, the government of that people requested him to leave as soon as lie could, and to never return. There is every probability, from the tone of several urticles that have appeared in the London journals, one of which is referred to in the article which we extract from the Calcutta Star, that the British government will, before many years, forcibly open the conuneree of Japan to the world, as it did in the case of China, unless it be anticipated by the government of the United States, and compel the Japanese to nbandon the policy of exclusiveness which they have maintained so long to the rest of the world. In the present age and condition of the world such a course would be justifiable nnd proper, besides beneficial. It would not only benefit all commercial nations, but it would benefit the Japanese themselves. The steamer Camhkia left Boston on Saturday for Halifax and Liverpool,with the foreign mails, and IIS fMMMen. Intellioence from Sa.vta Fe.?Our ndvices From Santa Fe are to the 5th of March inclusive. All was quiet there. The Canals. ?

The | new fairy extravagaza of the " Terrible Prince," or the ' Island of Tranquil Delights." which haa been received 10 flatteringly, will be repeated. The two piece* compose a bill that ought to add considerably to the treaaury of the theatre. Bowerv Theatre.?Mr*. Shaw in " Ermine, or the Statue," and the opera of '' Rob Roy," at the Bowery. This la an attraction that will be properly appreciated. The eclat that ha* attended Mra. Shaw'* performance! here till* last time, must be gratifying to that great actress. We believe she will play uvery evening this week. The Bowery at the present time has a great claim on the patronage of the public. Vauxhall Garde*.?This place is visited by thousands of persons every day. who attend for the purpose of seeing the veteran Katon. The greatest curiosity is manifested by those who have bets pending on the result, to know whether he will accomplish the great feat he has undertaken, or fall. Mr. Alexander.?This prince of the necromantic art remains here this week. On Saturday night next, be will appear for the last time, and then wend bis way to other cities. We have frequently spoken of his great merit as a magician, and of the extraordinary tricks and deceptions he perpetrates. He ranks very high here, and will be anxiously expected to return again, after he shall have astonished the people of other place*. The Cincinnati Athena-urn opened for the season on the 'Kith of April last, Mrs. Mowatt delivered un appro priato address on the occasion. Mr*. Mowatt, Mr. Webb, Mr. Davenport, and Mr?. Thorne, were playing there at tho last dates. Theatricals at Newark.?There will be a performance every, evening this week at Newark. Miss Charlotte lJarnes and Mrs. Harrison appear this evening in two favorite pieces. The people of Newark will find these entertainments very interesting. The lessees, Messrs. Miller h Herbert, have secured an excellent stock oompuny, and made engagements with some of the best actors and actresses on tne stage. They will be announced in due time. Musical. The Swiss Bell Ringers.?A glance at the programme of the pieces which these celebrated inuslciuns will perform this evening at the Apollo Rooms, convinces us that the attendance will be largor, if possible, than it has been vet. It contains somo of the most pleasing and favorite airs, which are rendered doubly pleasing by the sweet tones ef the bells. The bell ringers have every reason to be flattered with tho great patronage they have received in this city and country. It is not, however, greater than their merits entitle them to. Chrism's Minstrels ?Mechanics' Hall, No. 472 Broadway, will resound the melody of Christy's Minstrels every evening this week. This place has been reoently enlarged and improved, and can accommodate a great number of visiters. The same success which attended these Minstrels, awaits them agRin. They eminently deserve it. Political Intelligence. Virginia Election.?The following are tho results of the election in Virginia, so far as hoard from. We give the namos of the new and old delegation to Congress.

Wcritkr'S Proorfis Southward.?Tho dinner to Mr. Webster in Richmond, came off last Thursday.? Among the invited guests in attendance were Professor Hitchcock of Amherst College, Massachusetts, R. T. Daniel and John M. Patton, Esqs., of the Executive Council, and the gallant Col. M. M. Payne, of the United States Army. Missouri.?Col. Robert E. Acock Is a candidate for the oflleo of Governor, at the next election for that office in Missouri. Affairs in South America.?We have received the following interesting letter from Montevideo. It contains matter to reflect upon; it gives the origin of the war, which is not perhaps generally known in this country:? Montevideo, Feb. 0, 1847. The news from England and France is very contradictory, and we are kept in a great state of anxiety. England, it appears, is willing to yield every point of honor in order to obtaiu the hides and grease in the warehouses of liuenos Ayrts. But France, noble, ohivalrous France, the land or Napoleon and La Fayette, says to Rosas, " the tri-colored flag shall navigate the Parana. To the independent nation of Paraguay, we will send the productions of Frunce," and no pecuniary inducements can divert her from this decision. France says. " the Parana has been opened with the blood of too many gallant Frenchmen, ever to bo again closed. The battle of Obligado was one which France reviews with pride, and she has promoted the naval officers who were engaged in the severe conflict, i It is the first battle where small steamers and vessels of war in still water have plaeod themsolves directly uuder tweoty-four pieces of 34-pounders, (long guns) and silenced them all after twelve hours hard liirhtinir. in which many uoblo soul of France fell, showing to the world that what was said of them by Capt. iiotham, commander of the English naval forces during the action, " that they were the bravest of the brave in a naval light,'' was true. Had that buttle boen fought by the navy of the United States, and our governmont approved or the action by promoting the officers engaged in it whofsurvived the conflict, us England aud Fruuco have done, the world would see every ship of war in our navy suuk before the commerce of the noble I'arana would be again closed. We believe France will be actuated by the suuie noble principles, aud the brave Paraguayans will be allowed to burst the iron bands with which llosus has bound tbem. aud receive in tlielr waters tho commerce of the world. Paraguay declared and achieved her independence in IblO, and in 1812 it was acknowledged by (Jeneral llelgrano, as Minttter from liuenos Ayres. For more than thirty years no enemy has stood witbtn her territory; but hnenos Ayres owning a peninsula of land on the north shore of the Rio de la Plata, has shut her out from commercial intercourse with the world, which the battle of Obligado has opened, aud we ha*o full conii dence thut whatever Kngland may do, France w ill never consent to record as true the declaration of Itosas, that ull engaged in the battle were pirates, and as such should be bung without judge or jury. If France and England yield to Rosas, and shut the Puraua, they will aceede to the truth of this declaration, and it will bo left to the North Americans to redeem from bondage the noble Paraguayans, and leave tile whole to be recorded l>y the historian. History will then record all that has tru.ispircd In tills hemisphere; and the sons of France and Kuglaud will often, in perusing the pages,, blush for the inefficient, dishonorable, and vacillating conduct of their rulers, who have showed fight sufficiently long only to involve all aeutrals in the general wreck of destruction, which must sweep over those who have befriended their interests, if Itosas uu<! Uribi. with their band of Maxorcas, are again to w|. I I the cut-throat knife in the Panda Oriental. 1 tbink the orieln of this war is not understood in the United Stsi -s It I.,is originated in rivalsliip to the natural advantages Montevideo possesses. Her situation must eventually draw most of thu business to this port; and her currency 1- iug gold aud silver, gives her advantages over Itucnos Ayres, which that government is not willing to leave to I he hand of time to mature,and prefers to strangle the young Hercules in the cradle, against which tills little city has nobly stood for six years, aud before she yields, tho siege will do as long and celebrated us thut of ancient Troy.

Manslauohtek.?A colored man by the name of William Johnson, and his brother, late residents in Hudson streot, who have for some time past been employed in Jersey City, while on their way to work one morning in the early part of laBt week, were assailed by a party of white men and boys, (about 20 in number,) some of whom attacked the before named colored man, and kuocked him senseless to the ground, where they left bim bleeding profusely. A gentlemen, who arrived at the spot immediately after the murderous assault had been committed, caused the man to be conveyed to a drug store, and his wounds dressed. He was then taken home, and subsequently to the city hospital, wheru he died about 6 o'clock yesterday morning. The coroner was called to hold an inquest upon tho body of the deceased, but In conscquenoe of the absence of material witnesses, the investigation was deferred until this afternoon. Railroad Accident.?As a train of cars on the Harlem Railroad was on its way to this city, on Saturday evening last, when near 40th street, the speed of the looomotive was greatly retarded for the purpose of letting out the President of the Railroad Company, when u stranger embraced the opportunity of gettiug on one of the cars, in doing which nis hat fell off, and in order to recover it, the stranger instantly sprang from the car, and accidentally slipped, whereby he had one of his arms broken in two places. Notwithstanding the repeated precautions that have been given against the practice of jumping from railroad cars, while underway, we frequently observe persons, thus jeopardize their lives ; and when on every oocaslon, their fool hardy exploits are attended with serious consequences, a hue and cry is at once raised against the officers of tho road as well as the engineers and conductors of the trains, as being the sole cause of the mishaps that occur. It is truly surprising that more ^accidents do not occur, particularly amongst the numerous children who may be daily observed crossing aud recrossiug the trucks in front of the ears when going at a fast rate, as though they were desirous to manifest how daring they can be in risking their lives and limbs. Death bt Convulsions.?Coroner Walters was called yesterday to hold an inquest at No. 212 William street, on the body of a German, named Peter Kritch, aged 48 yi ars, who arrived in this oountry in January laat,siuoe which time he has boon greatly afflicted with fits. On Saturday night, about 9 o'clock, he was again attacked with convulsive fits, which continued until 3 o'clock yesterday morning, when he died. Verdict, death by convulsions. Accident an* Loss oe Live.?A sail boat, with four men in it, was capsized yesterday, near quarauti n e. O nc of the persons, named 8.

The Boundary Line.?We are gratified to learn that the commissioners on the purt of Rhode Island and Massachusetts to settle the boundary line between the two States, have agreed upon the line of division, which now awaits only the sanction of the two legislatures to be confirmed. The monuments to mark the boundary will be erected as soon as the wenth er I* suitable. The line from tho ocean along i.iuio Compton and Tiverton, through Kail River, nuil along Warren and Barrington to Bullock's Point, la to remain an at present occupied. From Bullock's Point to Pawtucket Bridge the Jurisdiction of Rhode Island is to extend, as at present, to high water mark, but the owners and occupants of the lands in Massachusetts adjoining the Bay are to enjoy all riparian rights according to Uncommon law, and the common rights of fishery in the Bay. From Pawtucket Bridge the line proceeds through the centre of the river until it strikes a line due north to Burnt Bwamp Corner, the northeast corner of the Htntc This line makes scarcely any changes. and we think will prove acceptable to both legislatures The boundary has been In dispute ever since 1791, and a resort to the Supreme Court at Washington would have entailed great expense on both States. The report has been signed by all the commissioners except the Hon. John son Gardner, who will probably make a separate report ?Proridrnct Journal T? SkASoic Che time oi the blouoming of fruit trees. Is a tolerably good indication of the character of the season of spring. A large apricot tree, which we have carefully watched for some years, commenced blossoming during several seasons as follows:?In 1811, April 17i 184.3, April U4; 194#, April 19, and 1847, May 1. It will thus be seen that the present season is a week later than in 1843 - and a fortnight later than in 1844. The Illumination. M* Edits*? 1 perceive by h notice in your paper that a specm! j committee of tb# Common Council are now making arrangement* to here an Illumination in honor of the nip nal victories of our arms over a foreign enemy; thin in all very well and proper, and If it could be general, no- j thing more grand and imposing could be presented; but In a city like New York, where there is such a diversity ' of opinion, it would be rather difficult to determine, where uu illumination wus not, whether it arose from the want of menusora disapproval of the war Now, Mr. Kditor, I do nut mean to illuuiiuate my house, uot because I do not glory in the victories of our arms, neither because 1 am not able, but because I do not think it necessary that private dwellings should lie shown off in this way. believiug it properly belongs to public buildings, and I think it would be much more appropriate if confined to such.

There has been very little of interest in the Stock Market (luring the past week, prices have been without material alteration, and there has been very little disposition exhibited to operate. Speculators appear to think that some important change is about being realised in our financial affairs, but the widest difference in opinion exists relative to the nature of tho change. There are two parties pretty equally divided, one anticipating an increase In the supply of money, a reduction in the rate of interest, and an improvement in our finances generally; the other anticipating a tightness in the money market, a large importation of foreign manufactures, an exportation of specie, a contraction on the part of the banks, and such restrictions in our finances, from the operation of tho Independent Troajury, as will bring every thing down to the lowest point as regards prices. Time will determine which of these parties is correct in its i?ws. We agree with both. There is very little doubt but that we shall ultimately experience all the evils of a large exportation of specie, in payment for the importation of foreign manufactures, and thero is no doubt but that an exportation of specie, in connection with the Independent Treasury, will placo the moat severe restrictions upon the money markctH. Before we realize these things thero must be a period of speculation?an inflation of credits, an abundance in the money markots. an improvement in prices for every species of property, and of course, as a natural consequenoe, a collapse as soon as the inflation has reached the explosive point. Wo, therefore, are under the impression that tho bulls aud bears will have their day, that tho bulls will have the first, and the bears the last, and decidedly the best chance, .for they will, without doubt, find prices so much influted, that the reaction will probably be as great as has been realized for several years. The boars are undoubtedly more correct in their views than the t.ulla hut we think thev mako a mistake in anticipating an immediute depression in prices. If they will have n little more patience, they will make more profitable operations when tho turning point is reached. We annex a table exhibiting the quotations for stocks in this market for each day of the past week, and at the clone of the week previous. It will be perceived that prices have been exceedingly uniform, and that the transactions in some of the fancies have been unusually limited.

The large amount locked up in the hands of the Assistant Treasurer* aud in the mlnta. has been drawn trom the channels of commerce, without having produced any uiateriul derangement in the money market. It is very true thut the recent importations of specie have prevented, in u measure, any injurious effect arising from this accumulation, but the currency of the country has become so much improved, that the operation of the independent Treasury, thus far, has been exceedingly easy and without those restrictions anticipated by its opponents. The accumulation of a surplus revenue as large as we have had within the post two years, in specie, in the bauds of sub-truasurers, in the event of the balance of our foreign trade being against us, would have an unfavorable influence upon the curroncy,but we do not antl. cipate such a state of things at present. It is the fear of such an event, that induces many to believe that we shall have u very serious contraction iu the money market.
