Recollections of European Aristocracy.

--Prince Paul, of Wirtemburg, whose death, recently, has already been mentioned, was well known in New York city, and was highly esteemed by all with whom he was acquainted. He spent several years in the Southwestern States and Territories and the far West, employed in such investigations as formed the chief employment of his life, and many of our citizens remember the pleasures they derived from his interesting conversations. Paul was a very democratic Prince in appearance and manners, and could accommodate himself to circumstances with as great facility as any of the hunters of the far West. When in New York in 1852-'3 he lodged at the old Hotel de Paris, on the corner of Broadway and Wall streets, and spent a great deal of his time in a lager beer saloon at that time kept under that establishment by the Hungarian Count and Countess Dembaiski.
