Good news i? continually coming in from Naples.? Th? Island of Sicily had displayed in the late revolution the most sublime heroism The people bad been led by the government to suppose that on the birth day of the King, (the 12th January.) great reforms would be conceded. It w*s only a trink to quiet them and prepare to orush taem by force, by giving time to the ministry of Del Carretto to do it The Hth oame atid brought no reforms The people saw the trick?they rose in their might and lifted the trl color?the revolution went over the Island. The Kiug's troops fired on the people?many were killed ; but the citiiens fought with the gremtmt heroism?hundreds of the women of Palermo, ol the first rank, fought from the windows of their palaces, and kept up oo> tinual and destructive Are on the mercenary soldiers of Naples The city was bombarded for forty-eight continual hour#; there was no sleep? glrii and women stood watching thebembs us they fell, and ran up to every oue and cut the fuse, which cMminish?d imoMjci ly the slaughter and ruin. Bands of peasants by the thousands oame rushing in from the surround ing country, aimed with all sorts of implements, with which they fell on the royal troops ? 8ome of the most touching pcenes were witnessed during this bloody tragedy?us fast as the enemy fall they weru titken in the arias of the people, and carried to the hospitals and to private houses, and nursed with the same tender care as the wounded patriots themselves. In these holy occupations, of fighting for liberty And dressing the wounds of the f tllen (friends and foes), lot) en ire population or raiurrno pan**a inose 1*0 Tremendous days; aad in the midst of it *11, bombs were OuatiuuaUy flying over the desolated city. At Ian the royal troops wrfe repulsed and driven from the city, and the insurgents goc possession of the great fort tnat overhangs the town, and the victory was gained A steamer was despatohed to Narles for fresh troops, and some #000 or 7U00 went back the sama day, but they were slaughtered and cat to pieces The struggle was over?the victory won. A provisional government was established and order restored. But the city (and fie island) has refused to lay down its arms, although the constitution has been granted, unless Kogland will give ite guaranty to the independence of the island, and t^e good lakh of Ferdinand. They are wise- they know the Bourbon race and they have had proofs enough that it Is a treacherous family, to wnom neither pledges, nor oaths, nor constitutions, are eaored In 1312, the father ot the present king gave tha suui* constitution to Sloily ?the peuple laid down their arms, and the moment tha old government was restored, all the leading patriots weru hung on gibbets, or shot, or buried in dungeons, or sent into exile. Whether England will give its guaranty or not, ia yet uncertain. The Italiaus bate England-for she cruebed and betrayed the republic! of Italy in lSld. and they know she ia capable of betraying ttiera the seoond time. Bat thus Ut, in all this movement in lb* Peninsula, she has acted in good faith ,and favored the causa er Italy In the meantime the king hoped to save bis cause, by proclaiming great reforms, vfi: Liberty of the press, a parliament Of peers and representatives, and a national gmrd. AU this would have delighted the people ten days before?it whs all they isked tor. But now these offers ( ibioh were more liberal by far than any of the reforming prinors, even Pio Nono not excepted, had grameu; were rejected wun scorn juey canea lor tne constitution; and an hundred thonsund Neapolitans lush-d up under the windows ot the royal palace. There wa? hb tima tor discu'Rion -there was hardly time to in Tu- oominarding General had been aent, an hour before, from the king'a palace, with an Older from Ferdinand to fire on the people.

During these last few months, turnips b'gged from those who were little better < if than themselves, constituted the only food of great numbers This miserable resource is now eibausted. and no tongue oan describe how great are the sufferings at this present moment of many of uiy people In addition to the pang> of hunger, they have also much to endure from cold In ibis inclement season ; many families not having sufficient clothing for the purpose* of decency; inuoh less for those of comfort and warmth. Tbe British people, who helped us nobly last year, are unable to render us murb aid now, their own poor being in almost as great distress as ourselves; and to crown all our sufferings, the dread'ul cholera threatens to visit onr shores, and Alls our minds with the darkest forebodings of tbe havio it will commit among*t a people so emaoiated and worn out with hunger and cold.

What has Louie Philippe done while we were running the race which he himKelf had helped to get us?

Wh-tt. stren/tli bat h* substku.ud for the atf-otions and con (idec.ce ot his people? He has w >rked for the dvnaetv; he hus lormcd dynastic alliances; he has sscriflcd the respect end confidence of two neighboring nations, not to say his own hooor, to a brilliant .amily connection; lie ha* i?i?ed an enormous arui.v; he has suiroucded Paris with for.s ai.d rauiparle, auu filled it with military stations; he has turned a cold on new-born liberty aud he hat courted despotism; he h?s conquered A'geria. aud brought into ? nobis captive, whose fa l was orainou? of hi' own; he hat doubled the d< bt an I expenditure of his country.

" The desoiater desolate, The viotor overthiown; The arbiter of others' fata A supplant for his own." Under the system whtoh this statesman has adopted, contrary to the promises of his earlier and lucre gonarous career, contrary to the hones of all constitutional r.urope, inoludlng the vast majority of the people ho affected to govern, it was evident that revolution hung on the oast of a die. A fatal weaktiess exists in every policy which disclaims tha sympathy and ilefi-s tha resistance of the nation at large Such we have ail along drclared to be the nharaoter of that political ftbrio which M. O'jisot h is contributed so willing a hand to establish. Its sole securities were tha respect which might still surround tha person of the sovereign, the /imiig' of tha dynasty, an overpowering military force, aud perhaps mora than all, .t dread of those troubles wnioh might ensue upon a subversion of the existing eystem As loug as these securities promised to be effective, we ielt too great an anxiety for the peace of b'rane.e and the world to insinuate or even t,o entertain K iy doubt that Louis Philippe, the survivor of en many changes aid ohttbci s. would be able to suppress a ia-re civic cmeute. We deplored the obstinacy wbicu i'iduoed htm to press what according to our Knglirh views might have beeu so easily oouoedt-d j but little doublt if ornther little wished to doubt, the power of 100.000 uiefTtO reduce to present submission th? unatuied 1'Opulatlon ol a metropolis.
