French industrial Exhibition.

--There is to be in Paris a "French Universal Exposition," which is intended to offer a complete development of the progress of arts, science, manufactures and mechanical improvements throughout the world. This Exposition differs from others in the fact that it is conducted by the representatives specially of the different National Governments; the United States, and not the States of which it is composed, being alone recognized. A space has been devoted to this country, which Congress will probably vote to accept, and then appropriate a sufficient sum to pay all expenses of transit from the United States to the Exposition. All the nations of Europe are already in the field with active commissions at work — that for Great Britain being composed of the most practical men in every department. It is to be hoped that the products of Southern industry will be represented at this great exhibition; and the occasion would seem to be a good one to bring before the world the unrivalled inducements to emigration which the South presents.
