Curlier, our Prefect of Police, gave ordt-ra to hia men to cut down the tree* of liberty, which were either dead, or in the way of the public vehicles, la a ceruin point of view, no oae cua blame the government for having removed theae pieces oi dead wood, which were far -rom being an ornament in the greA metropolis, .'be scene of ao maty splendid build'ags aud mounments. No decree of uny government ever gave those trees a position of inviolability; and yet, from what I have already seen aud remarked of the public feeling in the city of Pari*?where men of all partiea and of every clique are watching each other?1 tbiak that tb? moment was not opportune for abating the " *o called" nuisance. No doubt that M. Csrb?r bad a right to do what he attempted, with the authority of the Minister of the Interior; but, unquestionably, be did it too quickly, with a too great confidence in the wisdom and modern,, tion of tbe people. It is certainly a great ahow of prudence to not trm;>t the spirit of mischief, even with tbe beat iuleniions- Paring the last two weeks, many trees of Lberty had b<-tn cut at night ?some others in the day: but they were standing is different warda where the workmen are not wry numerous On Mond?iy last, according to the version of the government papers, a load 01 paving Mioses was brought in a rart into the Place National*, St. Martin, 111 onlT to repa<r the pavement, and by some means the load wan thrown at tbe very toot of the liberty tree The people who saw this, sup,vised ih>*y w.-re a?otit to cut the tree, and employ the stones to ptve the apot. The most excited amonp th*m uttered seditious language; und in the crowd which immediately is sembled, it was decided that tb?-y wauld uppure the cutting of the tree. A fomt* mounted tbe pole, and decorated it with nboons of red eolor, and a Phrygian nap, handed to him Me phc*d tli-m on the top ol the tree.

E NE Vul r MORI Among those arrested are numeroua persona attracted by curloaity, and many connected with the affair of June. Many convict* and men of a similar bad character have also been thrown into the cells of the conciergtrit. Thirty-five police officers have been wounded in the riot, but none of them are in a dangerous way. On the next day, (Tuesday, 6th.) numerous groups of mere idlers were collected at the scene of the riot of the preceding day, but, no disorder took place. In the evening, two regiments of troops occupied the Place Nationale, St. Martin, and protected the men sent by M. Carlier to destroy the remaining tree of liberty. The people, or rather the leaders, seemed much displeased, and showed great irritation, but it all ended in smoke. The presence of the soldiers prevented them from even uttering a cry. Several boys or gamtnt took hold of the branches of the liberty tree, and sold them to the enrmgit RevuUicaitu for a cent a piece. This new fieldfof industry had many competitors, and brought a good sum to those engaged in it. ' Yesterday morning (Wednesday), though many, from cunosity, returned to the spot, no rioters were present, ana tranquillity Wis pWWlfed during the evening. I understand that all the generals of division and sub-division, who were en roixgi in Paris, have received an order to return immediately to their place of residence and garrison. Prefects and subprefects have also received the same orders. You mcy be asaured that the preaa of all parties oppcsedto the government have publiahed articles censuring the measure directing the cutting down of thetrees. Among the most bitter attacks in that of the journal of M. Proudhon, Im Vsix du Pcuple. The number published on Tuesday morning was seized at the po&t office and in the bureau of the paper. The cause of it was the publication of two articles entitled Vive la Emytreur .'?a sorr of denunciation against Louis Napoleon for having tried to organize a riot, in order to have thus an object of undertaking nis coup d'tat?and the second called Fatts dt la jautuie a collection of false news, I garbled with the inten ion to disturb the public peace. Whether or not| M. Proudhon was right I or wrong in having such an idea of the President's intention, I have no power to judge, having no ac- | quaintance at the Elyree; but there is a certain ru- 1 mor which leads me to suppose that the President i has the desire of taking the aupreme power as soon < as he can have an opportunity. _ i I know, from good authority, that on a certain | evening of last week, there was a meeting of the 1 Orleanifts, at the head of whom were Messrs. I Dupin, General Changarnier, and others. It took i place in a private building. Measures were taken to have everything ready when called for by events. General Lamoriciere, who wus present, was a-sked i if, in cas? of such a circumstance, he would obey General Changarnier 1 After some hesitation he consented to do so. You may rely upon this informal ion as being perfectly correct. In case of a ctrup d'etat, the Orleanist party would lustantly leave the National Assembly and congregate la a secret house, where a provisional government would be formed, having at the head Gen Chanfarnier who has agreat command ever the army. 'h?n the old s< Idler would restore immediately the republic of France to t he hands of Duke of Nemours, without calling on the public suffrage. What would be the form of government then adopted can only be corj?*ctured. As you will see by the newspapers, the Legislative Assembly terminated on the 21th of January the long and violent dtscunsion upon the law relative to the transportation of the insurgents of June to Aleeria. The law has been passed by 306 votea sgaintt 208. Thenlace designated to receive the I inrurgent* is culled LNMM, in the province of Com-'ar.tme. This country, situated on the borders o! Mount Annas, consists ol a very fertile valley, which will be an excellent place or coloai* zation. The spot is covered with Roman monuments ot the moM beautiful description, which will turnish excellent material* from which to build a new city. The law relative to the Garde Mobile has been also pissed by 533 votes, acatnst 49. The Mobile will be Incorporated into the ranka of the regular army, in the grades thev hud in their own service. M Gui/ot is now in Paris, publishing the lourth edition of his history of tne " Revolutions of Kncland," to which he will udd another volume, which, it is raid, will be of the greatest iutrrrst. N<> di ubt it will be very popular among all nations. ] Another work of immense interest is thit of M. ' Ferdinand l>echard, a Representative ot the j semUy, which is entitled L'EkIiu, la Commtmi 1 ttCtai. It haa u great run in the political circiea j of Paris. The anniversary of the French revolution of 1H40, la intended to be clebrated by the red republicans on the 24ih of tins month. But on <hi that the government will refuse to |>ermit it. Here will be, *ery likely, another cause of trouble And so we po in our Ilelle France. Surrounded l>y exikemei.ts in ti.< 1 .1. nor, put into niPXtriCMiiie .

The cold weather haa been, sod la at ill, extreme. The poor peot>le are without w? rk and cry ins famine Last, not least, the rivers < l|' rsnc are flooding the land. The Seine haa I reached over seven nettes, and had never beea sees ao high The garden on the Place de la Coif i corse are under the waters, and there arebut three feet under the bridge* of Paris. The river haa covered all the country to Kouen and below. The Khiae, also, lias overflowed, and caused much dentrui tion The Loire, and thi* Rhone are also in the s^me condition, as well as La Meurthe, La Meurse, L'Airne, La Sarthe and La *><tronne. It is certain, that the miachwl done uy the watrr*, as well on the Isnds a.i upon the building*, will be (mmm"*, And that it will add to tbc drplnrable con* dilira of the arricultural population of France.

Lecourt, well knows in New York, where he performed at Xiblo's Garden, with the French company of Mr. Davis, will, undoubtedly, become a very rich man. The public plaoetf, promenades, Champa Ely?e<*? Boia de Boulogne, are not much frequented by the Hit* of aoclety. The ex-nobles and rich person* of the Faubourg St. Germain mingle not with those who are unconscious of the present, and do not think of the morrow. They remain in their country castles, and are waiting for the "better time coming." If one sees some elegant persona on horseback or riding in sumptuous vehicles, he may be certain that tnoae people are either bankers, or viventt, or women of a dubious character, among whom are to be remarked many foreigners, from all countnea. The toilettes are very simple, and the ladies and gentlemen belonging to the most refined circles dress in such a quiet manner that the tailors and dress makers are complaining of their taste, or rather of the circumstances which are the cause of thia simplicity. The only placea where display may be seen, are the ball* given at the "Ehsee, and those of the foreign ambassadors. But there, the foreigners are the leaders of the t??, and they (rule the hayU pat; not certainly on account of their taste, but by the carelessness with which they cpend their money and show th? diamonds of their wives In this very "heart" of the Carnival, manf balls have been and are nightly given. At the "i.lysce National," the President "receives" every Thursday, and his saloons are literally invaded by the corps diplomatique, the men oi the government, ana all the distinguished fereigners now present in Paris. The honors of the hotel ot the President are made altogether by Louis Napoleon and Princess Mat hi Id e (Mademoiselle Demidofl) his cousin. Mr. lierger, the Prefect of Pan*, whose ambition is to make M de K umbuteau lorgctten, has also given a series of toiritt and balls, which have been very well attended. The ambassadors of England, Russia, Ausina, and others, have given but lew parties; but the Minister of the Sublime porte, Prince Callimaki, has been the "lion" among them. He gave, I'riday night, (February 1st) a grand ball, which was called, with much reason, ine "Thousand and second night!" The hotel winch ho occupies in the street dee "Champa Elyseea," near the avenue Gabrielle, is the real copy of a Turkish palace, and the interior decorations are the ne p/?? u/ira of oriental magnificence. 1 do not remember having ever seen a party so fairy-like aad so rnchanUng. It will be long remembered in the annul* of faahioD. The actresses of the Parisian theatres are also much advanced in civilization. Their saloons are frequented by the best society of Pans. Mine. Octave, the bewitching amourrutt of the " vaudeville," inaugurated ber entry iu a new and splendid apartment by a brilliant party, at which were pres* nt ihe prettiest women ot the theatres of Paris, and all the jrwnnu dor ft.

Her personation of Mila. de Uelllale, in the comedy of that name, by Aleiaudre Dumus, has been a complete failure; and a vrry Vitiy journalist of Pana, using the celebrated verses of La Fontaine, with a alight alteration, gave her?the other morning, the following advice, which ia >|UHe a frojtoi" JV< Jurat j>ut votrt gract, rovi *t fttitn run aire talem." The press, in general, has been unanimoua asainat the uufortunate tragic actreea, who had beuer now rraume her firat successful career, and " stick to it." The public balla and rnaaqueradea are now all the rate for the moment. A bai mutjiU ot the Opera House takea place every Jiaturday, in the " Pandemonium" of Paris, and this immense building ia thronged from twelve o'clock till six in Me morning.

OnM preparationa are mide f?r the three laat days preceding Ash Wednesday, in crder to bury 111 great style the Carnival of 1880.

This young lady waa bora in New York, aud haa atill there many relations. 1 have no doubt ahe will meet |wiih success. It ia said, in our mualcal circles, that the celebrated Jenny Lind haa decidedly contracted an enffasement wilh thr charvr nf Hirnnm.

The bargain has been signed for one year, from 1 the 1st or next April. A sum of 180,000 francs bu been deposited in the hands of a banker in London, as a guarantee for the payment. Th* tslentecf pisnist, Jules Benedict, is to accompany Jenny Lind during her journey in the United States and other countries of America M'me Laborde. the sweet singer, who returned two months ago from the United States, has been lately engaged at the Crand Opera, and will nuke her first appearance in a tew days, in the part of Valentine, in the " Huguenots," of Meyerbeer. The purity of Her vocalization, the energy and justness of her voice, were much admired by the author of "The Prophet," when he heard her for the first time at a rehearsal; and it is whispered behind the scenes of the opera, that very likely she will, soon after her dibtu, appear in a part expressly written for her, which, of course, will be iisite a compliment to her musical talents. I will let you knaw the result of the first appearance of i Laborde. Alizsrd, the famed basso singer, died at Mar- 1 settles on the 23d ult He was the best, in his line, ' after Levasseur. The Italian Opera of Paris does not meet with ihe same success as that of Maretaek in New York. In spite of Labiai-he, ltnnconi, PertLani, M'lle I>'Angri, and others, the public are not as enthusiastic as before the last revolution, and it was mentioned the other duy, that the government intended retaking from the subvention allowed to the Comic O^era House, the sum of 40(1,000 francs, to be given, as an encouragement, to the unfortunate singers of the Italian Opera, and principally to Ponconi, the manager, one of the most honest of men. A very curious drama was produced the other night at the theatre of Aa Porte St. Martin. This play, written by a gentleman who has visited California, is called: The Gold Diggers. (Les CKtr* ; chntrt d'Or,) and has been repiesVnted with great care and cotrt ctnesa. At the Cir>/ut Oiympu/ue, a , great panoramatic spectacle, entitled Bnnayart* tn I tali*, was perfotmed Saturday last, aud received with the utmost enthusiasm. Among the curious entertainments of Paris, which are very popular in the fashionable circles, 1 may mention the school of Celtanus, the dancing master who first introduced in Trance the Polks, the Mazurka, Jledcwa and oilier dances, now- I I Q.ilava fniiuht in tl.*?

I '"Twas a rough night," and certainly, save once, (January, 1831),) "my young remembrance cannot ; parallel a fellow to it." The force ot the wind 1 upon the sides of the houses, was as if they had been struck with a bale of cotton. Low houses, | even, were sensibly shaken to their very foundation. Like many a person who cannot write, the gale has made its mark in numerous places. Nine feet of the spire of a church on the Cheshire side of the river was blown down, and there will soon be a rise in the chimnuy-pot market, and glaziers are at a premium. Several vessels in the river dragged their anchors, and the Manhattan had a narrow escape of getttinu on the pier head* on the Liverpool side. The J. P. Whitney, Irom Philadelphia, S G. Glidden, master, went on shore near Kormby light, at half-past 3 o'clock, 1'. M , on the tftn, utter beating about all the previous night. .Slunow lies two miles t>outh of Foimby light, a total wreck?all hands saved. The Medensch, from Apalachicola, was, throughout Tuesday night, within ihree miles of the J. P. Whitney, and lay to all night. At 11 o'clock, A. M., on the 6th, ths captain finding himself very close on u Ire shore, was obliged to set a clow reefed maintop sail. While eettinc it, siw a pilot boat beating up under his lee, on tne other Uek, under a he.ivv press of canvass. Immediately the Medensch hove the maintop sail to the mast,and hoisted the signal for a pilot, which, howev< r, the pilot disregarded, and continued on the same tack, and run out oi sight; and as it did not xpi?*ir thai she intended to come alongside, the Medensch was obliged t? till away, iVc.; itnd observing a steamer nuking for the Mersey, followtii her; but cracking a head of the steamer, took in s<iil, and then followed under a reefed foresail only. This account of the n-irrow escape of the Medensch will be interesting to many in America The captain complains much of the pilot he siguah/Tt; as. He says, if miqht without any risk, nave leu the w.iy into port. He could not ascertain the pilot's ixrnber. BiU for the (.teamer, (which was the cM U-ilLnailoe, of L>ublin,) the Medem<ch's fate would tuve i?een like that of ilie J. P. Whitney, most pr iiii i'y.

She will reach ihe Mersey (ii-*r engines bein^ all ready for hei) before May comes in The Africa will be launched in April By the way, talking of steam seivire, wh. t i>"tberation was occasioned by a mail made rp at Boston, (or the (libcraia, on Christmas day.

The fate of Germany, wlucli w?a virtually dec i? ded at ibe counter revolution, la becoming an ; accomplished fact, la approaching neater and nearer, and the plana of the reactionary pirty at the prtaent moment are on the very point of conmimmaiion.

A dramatic production, called "Maximilian Robespierre," by Griepenberl, a new German author, at the present moment occupies the attention of the literary world in an unusual degree, and tornis one of tne principal topics ot conversation ia the m/mi of this capital. The piece has not yet been given here, as the police objected to its performance, but the author has satisfied the curiosity which it excited, by arranging a public reading of the same at Milenz saloon. It is classed by critics among the great productions in the line of historical dramas, but wants sltogether that force of action which would be necessary in representing the characters of the French revolution, that terrible tragedy, which ha* prepared the way for th? great European revolution of our tune. Though the pife is one of the most innocent kind, it will noi be permitted to be performed here, and probably be prohibited in other part* ot C>rrmany. A similar censorship, as w exercised with regard 10 the press, exists also with re- . 4 Karri tt> the representations on the Mage, and nothing revolutionary is allowed to be acted m theatres, as well as in real life. The police, which now has the superintendence of the fine art*, take care not only of what people do and say, but likeWife of their imaginations, and many pieces of ilio most tuitions < a rinan authors are not permitted te be uivrn. The severity which is practised against the democratic societies, under these circumstance*, will, of course, create little astonishment. Meetings of the same are *lmost daily dissolved !>f the police, the reason for doiug so, being generally some unheeded word or expression, wiiicb nwy areidentally escape a shaker. In that case, the ofticer in attendance, at once declares the meeting to be dissolved, and summons the members to d?j?ersc. If the order is not instantly obeyed, a body of constables, always at hand on these occasions, is called into requisition to clear the place tad arrest all those who venture any remonstrance. Krequeutly, regular battles take place in these meetings, between the members and the constabularySuch set. s are so otten repeated, that they are considered like daily occurrences, though they tend more than anything ?-lse, to deepen the irritartiou ainoni; the people. No kind of redrew* can be (htaiued lor the lil treatmeut received from tlie police officers, as all complaints instituted at law <>c?in*t ihe latter, are left unnoticed by the Stute Attorney.
