TUNIS, Jan. 16.

With reference to the report published by the Petit Journal of Paris of the arrest of a man supposed to be "Jack the Ripper," the following are the facts:-

The French police recently arrested as a vagabond an individual named Alfred Gray, who cannot give a satisfactory account of himself. His height and age, as well as his moustache and hat, correspond with the description given in the London papers of the Whitechapel murderer.
