Obsequies of a Paris danseuse. --Day before yesterday (says the Paris correspondent of the New York World) the funeral of Mile. Emma Livry took place. This young person was for the last five years the favorite danseuse at the Grand Opera, admired, loved, almost adored by all who knew her. On the 13th of last November her dress took fire during a rehearsal, from which she was fearfully burnt, and ever since that time she has lingered in intense suffering until Sunday last, when, having been moved to Nenilly for a change of air, she expired. During the whole of her illness bulletins of her condition were published every few days, the Parisian public being deeply interested in her. The Emperor sent frequently to inquire after her. She was not only worshiped as one of the great artists of the dance, interpreting the passions as no one has done since the days of Tagrioni and Cerito, but all her companions, and the persons employed about the theatre, were devotedly attached to her.

The heavy guns of the land batteries have ceased their fire to a great extent, and day firing has given way to night firing. This is thought to indicate that their heavy ammunition has been much reduced and their heavy guns endangered. Private Brown, of the South Carolina volunteers, wounded slightly in the foot, is the only casually reported. [Second Dispatch] Charleston, Nov. 11. --The firing to-day was continued slowly from the enemy's land batteries and one monitor. No report

From Charleston. Charleston, Nov. 12. --The enemy has kept up a moderate fire on Sumter all day from their mortar battery and two monitors. One monitor and a wooden gunboat moved up to Sullivan's Island about 12 o'clock, and shelled the batteries for about an hour, but did not damage. A shell from battery Simpkins exploded in the midst of a party engaged in mounting another heavy gun at Battery Gregg, and several Yankees were seen being carried away on litters. No report from the fort this evening. The harbor was again illuminated by the Yankees to-night with Calcium lights. The shelling from the mortar battery is still going on.

From Tennessee. Atlanta, Nov. 13. --Advices from the front represent that firing continues briskly between our batteries and those of the enemy.

Grant has allowed Mrs. Helm, whose husband was killed at Chickamauga, to cross into Kentucky under flag of truce. The enemy has made a movement from his right to the left, either with a view to a diversion in order to attack Lookout, or to send troops to the support of Burnside.

ave the island, excepting with the aid of vessels, the story is not improbable that the transports were to be furnished by their sympathizing friends. The following dispatches show that measures have been taken to stop the matter: Buffalo, Nov. 13.--Mayor Fargo has received a second dispatch from Secretary Stanton stating that Major-Gen. Dix had been ordered to Buffalo to adopt measures for the security of the frontier against the plotting of the traitors who have taken refuge in the British provinces. The Mayor has taken measures to guard against incendiaries. He is also in communication with Gov. Seymour in relation to military affairs. Cincinnati, Nov. 13.--No additional intelligence relative to the Johnson's Island affair beyond that already telegraphed has been received. All was quiet in that vicinity last night.

Courteous officer. --Last Thursday afternoon the D. C. S. Marshal of this city, Mr. F. W. Bass, by the direction of the C. S. Commissioner, telegraphed the Chief of Police of Wilmington, N. C., to arrest promptly a man named M. Krakar, charged with felony, and to answer immediately. The offence charged was a serious one in the eye of the law, and the C. S. authorities thought it exceedingly important to have the arrest made, fearing the party might get wind of the charge and leave the country. That evening no response came, but the next day about 12 o'clock the following answer was received: "Wilmington, Nov. 13. "To F. W. Bass, D. M.: "Is he black or green! "P. McGrea, Chief Police."
