The Paris papers of Saturday gave a circumstantial account of

the death of the King of Prussia. It was stated, that on the eve of his death, feeling his end approaching, he desired that his army should defile before him for the last time ; that he was carried to the window, took a solemn farewell of the troops, yielded up his power to the Crown Prince, and expired the next day. It turns out that the old King is not dead, but getting better ; so that, probably, the pretty story about taking leave of his troops, and the rest of it, is a pure fabrication.
