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 enemy have for the first time since they opened fire commenced mortar shelling by night. Their rifle practice with light pieces has also become more frequent. 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 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.

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." Surely the Mayor of Wilmington will need no other evidence to establish the value of his Chief of Police and the great interest he feels in the execution of the Confederate laws.
