Paris Correspondence of "The Press. " [EXTRACT FROM A LITTER. DATED PABIS, JAR. 7, 1861.1 ..*- '¦ ... ¦ *, ' , . ¦ . ' # "Chief among the _notioeablo festivities of New Year's day in Paris, _wss the reception at the residence of Mr. faulkner_, the American minister, from toon until quite late in the evening, a stream of visitors kept pouring into the elegant hotel occupied by Mr. P., in the aristocratio quarter on the Avenue Montaigne. Nor was the throng composed exclusively of American residents, or casual American visitors in Paris. On the contrary, not o&ly the members of the foreign legations at the Court _ut St. Denis, but a large somber of the French _citicens, and of Bngsian, Geraan_, and other foreign residents, added interest to the occasion by their presence. In _^ connection, I cannot _speak too warmly of the generous welcome extended to all by the minister, his highly accomplished and _tomrteous lady, and family.

Will Major Anderson be Reinforced? The intelligence brought to New York on Wednesday, by the vessel which contained, the women and children who recently left Fort Snmpter,fully confirms the statementjcontained in the letter from that important position which we published yesterday morning. Brave as are the men who defend it, they are few in number, with deficient supplies of fuel and food for a l»ng siege, and it is by no means certain that they will bo able to resist the formidable attack which is threatened by South Carolina, and which will be commenced in a few days if recent events have not induced her to change her plans. It seems scarcely possible that the War Department has failed to make preparations for its reinforcement. To confine a few gal]ant soldiers within its massive walls, and qnietly permit them to be surrounded by terrible perils, without attempting to succor them, would be almost as cruel a policy as the philosophical experiment of withdrawing the air from a ...

T he Feace Congress. A great variety of opinions appear to exist about the probable result of the deliberations of the Peace Congress, now in session at Washington. Some deny that there is any hope of good results from its deliberations. But, on the other hand, more sanguine minds anticipate that at least two-thirds of its members from both sections will decide upon recommending & plan of adjustment which will be gladly accepted by the masses of the people in the Border Slave and in a majority ol the Free States, and _whioh will be so enthusi astically and energetically supported that ultra politicians will be utterly unable to successfully resist it. They argue, too, that if the Border Slave States are thus Batiafledj a vigorous minority will at once commence a Union agitation ia the States which have already seceded, and before many months have elapsed that, Uk« Prodigal Sons, they will grow weary of feeding upon the husks of heavy taxation , tyranny, and business dera...

Ms. _Karkt gave his second exhibition at the Academy of Music last evening, to a very large . audience, which was much gratified by the exhibition of Ms marvellous skill in subdoing refractory and vicious horses. His last subject was recommended to him in a witty letter from the owner aa a regular fire-eater , who bad a strong disposition to secede , and was full ot fight. Bis appearance and con. duct folly corresponded with this descrip. tion. Under the firm and active, yet not harsh or crnel, influence of the coercive strap system, however, he became as decile as a lamb after a brisk and exciting, bnt sot very protracted, struggle. If Mr. Rabey, or anybody else, can invent an equally effective plan of dealing with the fire-eating politicians ef the country, that will render them useful and patriotic, instead of rebellious and dangerous citizens, lie will deserve the thanks of the whole nation, and speedily restore peace and haawuy to our djgtneteft Confederacy.

Card Photographs. An account lately appeared of a large commission for photographs, executed by Brady, of New York, far the Prince of Wales, and duly forwarded to him, addressed to Wi ndsor Castle, care of his Mother. Brady does other photographs, lass costly, bat no t less perfect We have received, from an old friend in New York, a couple of oard photographs, by Brady, three inches by two, representing Mrs. Hoey, the charming actress of Wallaok'_a Theatre. These are not " in character," bnt simply the portraits of a very pretty and _graoefnl lady — one in evening drees, witn scarcely any other adornment but her own loveliness, and the other in walking costume. The face, in each instance, though on a miniature scale indeed, presents a very f*ithful resemblance.
