A Ridiculous story.

--The Paris correspondent of the New York World says:

‘ I have heard it stated that Mrs Slidell has said, since her arrival here, that among the propositions which the rebel commissioners were authorized to make to the Governments of France and England, as an inducements for the recognition of the South, was a plan for the gradual abolition of slavery.--Such a proposition would without doubt, greatly add to the chance of its recognition.

And the Yankees really believe stuff like the above.
