Southerners in Paris.

--The Paris (October 9) letter of the New York World has the following:

Mr. Mason is about leaving Paris for London to settle up some little affairs, when he will return to the continent, and probably go south as far as Rome or Naples. The "Old Roman, " as he is called here, is glad to get away from Russellton. Under the auspices of a new ministry, Mr. Mason may yet return to be officially presented to her most gracious Majesty the Queen.

Sir Yardley Eardley, who married the belie of Alabama, having lately succeeded to his father's title and estates, is devoting himself with great enthusiasm to the rebel cause. He has got up a subscription in England for the purpose of raising funds to supply the Confederate army with medicines, surgical instruments, &c., and to day he gives a dinner at the Grand Hotel in Paris to several leading Southerners and sympathizers, including Capt. Maffit, of the Florida. And, by the way, this terrible little destructive, in a condition better than new, will leave Brest in about ten days, to resume her mission on the mighty deep.--Maffit will have to remain some two months longer in the hands of the Paris doctors.

Capt. Hartstein, of the Confederate Navy, is very ill at Munich. Lieuts, Morris, Campbell. Lee, and Barron, of the same service, are now in Paris waiting for a ship. Capt. Blakeley, who has just arrived from St. Petersburg, is much chagrined at the reported bursting of his "big gun," at Charleston. He ordered at once, by telegram, a brother to the monster to be made at once. No gun of that calibre, he says, can stand a high elevation; and for point blank work he thinks nothing can stand against them.
