The French papers of Thursday contain little of interest from any quarter. The preparations for the funeral of Napoleon were nearly completed in Paris. The Havre Journal gives an account of the entrance of the convoy with the coffin into the Seine on Tuesday. The car which is to convey the remains from Courbevoie to the Invalides is finished : it is 35 feet in height, 34 feet in length, and 151 feet in Vidal : it is upon four massive gilded wheels.
