--At the recent reception of Americans by the French Emperor, a letter says:

‘ In passing in front of the Americans, the Empress stopped to speak particularly with Miss King, of Georgia, with whose name and face she was already familiar, and she conversed also with Mrs. Ronalds, whose acquaintance she had made on the ice at the Bois de Bologne. Mrs. Ronalds, as the Bostonians all know, is a famous skater, and it was her skill on skates that attracted the attention of the Empress, who entered into conversation with her on the ice, and complimented her. Mrs. R. cut herself with one of her skates the last day she was out, and the Empress kindly asked after her health.
