Death of a French editor.

--Eugene Guinot, associate editor of the Pays, and one of the first and most elegant chroniclers of the Parisian press, died on the 9th ultimo, after a very short illness. He was also known under the nom de plume of Paul Vermond and Pierre Durand. During the twenty-five years that he has been connected with the press, Eugene Guinot never failed to send his weekly feuilleton on the appointed day. Therefore, when, on Saturday, the 9th of February, the chief editor of the Pays did not receive from him the expected copy, he said to his friends: "Guinot has not sent his chronicle for to-morrow — he must be dead." He was not dead, but dying.
