P. his, Metoh 19, 1848. Three fFeeks of the French RevolutionWe have passed through the Bret three week! of the history of the Revolution of France, and it mast he acknowledged that the remits of the experiment are not of the most cheering kind That I may not, however, anticipate eventa, let me go back to the point where I lef: off. You are already aware from the, public newspaper*, that immediately after the expulsion of the king and hi* family, a provisional government was improvised. according to the commonly received reports. I am. however, enabled to declare that this statement is not strictly correct. Oo Monday, tho 33d nit, when the deoision of the late government to oppose the reform banquet, annonneed for Tuesday the 38i, became known, e meeting took piaoe of certain m< mbers of the repnblieen party, at whieh the oontingenoy of a revolution was foreseen, and It was resolved to he so far prepared for noh an event ae to agree upon the names of tho persons who should toe called provisionally to govermental fnnotions. The names of the present provisional go armnent were then agreed upon as thosa to be proposed on suoh an emergency, with tha addition of that of Mr. OdiUon Barrot. In tha aotuaroircumstanoe.a, however, the position assumed by tho latter deputy, necessarily excluded him; a ?s lie WOT BUV ptlTJ lU lun en* a DUgouivun n?. ?v.rw.> tw, there waft the 1?m difficulty In the metter. All the other names were th?n agreed en aa they now stand. You are aware 'hat Mr. Dupont de d? 1'Eure, Garnier Pages. Ltmartine and Marie were already deputies eminently distinguished In the Chamber. M. Louie B'ano was known for bis Hietnire de dia ant. M. Flocon was formerly a reporter of the Conetitnthmnel. M Betbn ont was also a deputy. M Arago was still more eminent for bis science than as a deputy M Ledru Rollln was oerhaps the only eery exceptions ble individual of the lot being a character jure to comprom'se the government with the more respectable and Intelligent portion of the community. Suou, in short was the government in whose hands the destinies ot France were temporarily plac d on the 24th February. Tne dlflloulty and danger of the task whiob they undertook. engaged to them, at least in the beginning, the support ana encouragement of the well disposed of all olassss, not on>y in Franoe. but in other parts of Europe; end until within the last few days, it must be admitted th?t they have justified this confidence. One of their earliest ects was to abeliah capital punishment for political off-nces. This alone was of good augury, more es peelaily in obliterating tkf recollections or the first revolution, which natnvaUy arose in the minds of all perrons, and crested more or lesa misgivings relating to the present government. The first state paper of importance which they pnt forth, was the circular of M. de Lamartina to the oorps diplomat>qnt. This doenment received, as you arc aware, general approbation, even from those most hostile to the government. A variety of.decrees, issued Irom Jay to day. also tended to oonoiliate public opinion, and to dirslpdte the fears which arose in the minds of many vimld persons that another reign of terror was shout to commence Among these may be mentioned the measures for the improvement of the condition ot the laborin; classes, the abolition of imprisonment for debt, the gradual abolition of slavery, the abolition of oorpoteal punishment in the navy, and other enactments Although much difference of opinion mnst necessarily pre. vail resnecttDK such measures severally, yet their gene ral tendency was such as to banish from the public mind that phantom of a regime of blood, which tha memory of 91-'9i irresistibly evoked. Toe ambassadors and ministers of foreirn powers accordingly (thoae of the United states and Oreat Britain taking the lead) have signified one by one to the provisional government, that their respective courts bed deoided to meintain the sama pacific relations as heretofore with the Frenoh government, and on acknowledging the provisional government a* the 4e fee's government of France, until such tima as a permanent government should be oonatituted. This was of e.nurse a great arm of strength to the provisional government. 1 must now, however, state, that subsequent proceedings developed important differences in the spirit and diH'aotcr of the members of the government.

The doors of the bank were otosed altogether on Thursday, and the private banks deo ined paying oheoks lna jy oth?r way than in notes of the Bank of France Neither gold nor silver were to he obtained at any price at the money changer*. Three franca n pieoe premium was offered for twenty frono gold pieeea Several of the larger olnse ot bank*, inelndlng that of Meaars Rothaobild, leaned a olronler notlee to all persons having claims on them, or bills accepted by them, whether due or not, that they requested them to be presented forthwith for payment; and it la understood that their object in thia measure la to oome to a general liquidation. and close their dooia. On Wednesday, the 16th, the three per cents fall at the Bourse to 46. a lower prioe than they have ever fallen to sinoe the battle ef Waterloo. Notwithstanding the stoppage of the cash payments of the bank, they revived somewhat on Thnrsday, the 14th, when they olosed at 60. All descriptions of shares, however, fell to a ruinously low price. Thus the Orleans Railway, which has been at 1400. fall below 640. The Northern Railway, which at one time had been at 900, fell to 337, and SO of the rest 1 have already ollnded to the oiroular of M. Ledru Rollin, addressed to the oommissarice sent by the provisional government into the provinces. Another decree of this minister did not prove less obnoxiout. It has been the oustom in the enrolment of the National uard, to consign those members of cash corps who were men of property, Intelligence, enu reepeolability, te the oompnnice of grrnadiars and vaitigeurs Such an arrangement was naturally enough agreeable, as It kept together persons of similar habits and Ilk# tastes. M. Ledru Rollin, however, with a view to Batter the lower classes, issued a decree fer the dissolution of these oompiniee, and for their fusion with the general mass. This deorbe preduoed an explosion of indignation, not loss violent than that which followed the former decree, which we have already adverted to The influence of public opinion was se strongly manifested relative to the deoree which conferred dictatorial powers on the provinoial oommisssries that the government saw the necessity of repairing the error committed by the Minister of the Interior, and this w?s accordingly aeoomplisbed in several forms. On Wed nesday the ISih, a deputation from the Central Republican Club waited un the Minister of Foreign Affaire to express their serious apprehension on the ill effects which would ensue throughout the country fiem this circular. They adduoed the coses of numerous magi* trates and other public functionaries, who had already resigned in consequence of it, and they ind'oated Its si most certain affeoc in producing a general disorganise tion in the official functionaries of the State. M Lamartine took the opportunity aff rded by the answer to bo given, to this address to neutralise the mischief wbioh 1 had been produced by his oolleague; end he accordingly disavowed on the port of the government the despotic aetumution advanced by M. Ledru Rollin, and deolarad that the government had no Intention of arrogating to themselves, or those mnder them, any sueh power. He also annonnoed that it was the intention of government immediately to ??u? a proclamation' la wnicn tney would annoanoe in a positive form what thote prlnot plan were which they acknowledged Thii ad dree of M. da Lamar.lne wee received with enthusiasm, and the best effeot eneued from It. But as a further means of disarming the mieohief of the Minister of the interior, notiee was ordered to be inserted in the .UontC'ur ef Thursday, the 16th, in wbloh the power of dismissing and impending magistrates, whioh was conferred by the manifesto of M. Ledru Rollin, was expressly revoked; and it was declared that no magistrate oould be el her dismissed or suspended, except by the Minister of Justice, and only then upon the most grave considerations . i now come to the other deoree of the Minister of the Interior- that by'whieh he pronounced the dissolution cf the grenadiers and light companies of the Nationnl Guard. The members of these companies resolved not to obey this deoree, and to make a solemn protest against it aooompanLd oy an imposing demonstration of their force and respectability brfore the provisional government. A notioe was accordingly issued, appointing places of rendesvous for the different companies in the several quarters of Pari,, on Thursday, the 16th of Maroh, from which it was intended that they should march to the Motel de Ville, and there send up a deputation to the government, with their protest. Meanwhile, a counter movement was piojsoted among the rabble, hy whose influenoe alone. Mr. Ledru Rollin was installed and maintained in the government. They resolved to prooerd at the same time to the Hotel de Ville and antioipate the National Guard on their way, to pre ?->nt their protect. J t so happened, however, that body of the latter, amounting to aome 4000 or 6000, arrived at ths Hotel de Ville before one o'olock, tbus accidentally antioipatlng the arrival of their opponents. Their deputation hadai audience oi the government, at which the revoeation of tho decree was consented to; bat it was requested that the marks of distinction on the uniform of tfceao oqmpani-s should be discontinued, wbloh request was agreed to Soon after this, the rabble arrived, and a little later ths chief body of the Na tionei Guard, amounting to some 30,000 men, wearing uniform, but without arms of any kind The populace intercepted them, and their arrival at the Hotel de Villa was rendered imp ossible They accordingly retired These proceedings, ae may be essily imagined, were attended with the greatest exasperation between tbr lower orders, who regard M. Ledin Rollin as their leader, and the middle and higher classes, nor at the moment of writing this Is it easy to sea bow the dispute osn be brought to a close without blood. M. Ledru Rollin is understood to stand alone in the mlniatry and government, as the partisan of the ,mob, and the deolar eJ adversary ot the intelligence, property and respectability of the country. H? ia the leader of the commonla'f. and of those whose opinions and spirit are moil hostile to the maintenance of tranquillity and order. Some curious scenes which hare oeourred between him and his colleagues in the Hotel de Villa, have form ed tbe common topio of conversation. On the 15:h, it is said that a sharp altercation took plaoe upon the above questions, at a sitting of the members of tbe government, In the Hotel de Viile. High words tuaued between >1. Ledru Rollin end bis col leagues. The Minister of tbe Interior, raising his volet to a high pitoh. and uslDg the most extravagant gestiou larrlens rushed towards the window with the apparent ob ject of oalling in'on his colleagues the thousands of rabble who Ailed the oourt btlow. M. Uarnier,Pages. it is said, thereupon drew a loaied pistol frim his pocket end declared that if M Ledru Rollin advanoed one step further he would shoot him dead. He, in addition, intimated that be bad in his pocket evidence that M Ledru Rollin had plundered the treasury, since his appointment to the government of nearly half a million if irancs, and thac if further provoked he would produce and publish this fact- Hereupon the ardor of the Minister ot the Interior is said to have abated; but in the ounrss of the conflict, M. Ledru Rollin is said to have ?pproached M. DeUmartine, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, with the most offensively violent gesticulations und to have all but struok him. openly menacing that he would piece himself at tbe head of the populace ana exterminate the government M. Da Lamertine is reported to have replied to this wish a ooutemptuous smile, and to have said that h>would rather loso his life nt ih hand* of ths populace in an imrute, than by thi guillotine, which would beereoted under the rtftUt M M Ledru Ko.ltn Such were the reports which were commonly oireula ted iu Paris on Thursday, the 10th of March. i oo aemaastration made uy tne grenaaisrs ana ugiii companies of the National Guards on fnursday, produced. ua might have been expected, a corresponding centre c?u/> among the companleo oompoaed of the eommonAlty On Tburaday evening, accordingly, meetlnga wen organized, and a common plan of aotlon waa conoerted lor the following day, imitating, aa far aa possible, the proceeding of the elite of the National Guard Places of rendeivoua were named, and a reunion of the entire maaa of the operatives waa arranged for Thursday morning. At the break of day, accordingly, assemblies were formed by previous arrangement In the various quartan of Paris. The working people thus collected at various points wer* marshalled by offljers distinguished by scarfs tied upon the left arm. and marebed from their various pojn's of rendezvous to the Boulevards; there they ooalesced and formed a procession to tne Place de Ik Concorde end the Champs Elyseaa, where the entire ol this fcrmld .bis mass assembled with lags end banners, at about 10 o'clook la the murniog .\leaowblle th. d?eition of the nrerislonel government aaralnst anv re vocation of the decree of M. Ledru Rclltn appeared lu the ManiUur It bad ban: tb? Intention of thin vart popular demonstration to lay before the provisional government a counter protest against that of the title of the National Guard; but the publication ol the deriion of the provisional government, in the Moniteur, deprived any auch protest of its ns?nning and its force, and the a?se obly havlog been inform ert of thla after cougregatlng on the F'laoe de la Cod eorde, oaras to the reanlu ion to exhibit, but aot to exercise their power They, therefore, marched in pro cession from the Place de la Concorde to the Hotel dn Ville. Aa ahoy passed along they pressed into their a* r t~ioe all the operatl:?p; without exoeptlon, whom 'n?j aac,7Untered on theif route, and on nrrising at the Hotel de ViJ? tliC" formed a band ol pot lese than lAO.txiO pereons. They dei.'r* i"? admirable order to the tquaie lacing the Hotel. , The members of the provisional *over_nmen viewed them from the windows unopened, and suCT"*? BP.dieposition either to address them or to court any addr?^" from them. They knowing what had occurred, had the good sense to understand that any protestation would become a mere " brutum futm-n," and they accordingly contented themselves with defiling from the hijuare, ?x hibltlng, by their enormous nambert, their physical force. They then filed off In detaohments to their reepsctlve quarters of (be town, and the day paased without further dlsturhaneee. Rumors were circulated daring the morning, that a plan had been arranged for this multitude to ro to the < hanjp do Mars, tad thsre to proclaim M Ledru Uollio, dictator Had suv h a course been attempted, it was understood that the respectable N?ionai Guard would have turned out in defence of the provisional government, and bloody collision muat have ensued No suoh disposition, however, was evinced on the part of the multitude thus cotleotsd ; on the aontrsry, no unseemly shouting was heard. A few v ileea exclaimed in favor of Ledru Uollln. mingled with about aa many others in favor of the provisional govern ment. la short, the mnltitude actsdHs though they wera sensible how deeply they were all interacted la the maintensnee of order. It was observable la thla osee, that a number of priests, alt of whom were pariah ouraUs, appeared among tho ranks of the populace, and ware among the most foorgette in the expression of their sentiments. r * W YO EW YORK, SUNDAY MO Ton day ended without any violation of the peace, and pti exhibited one of those t< suits w blob, though oommou tv enough In America, are almost unique in Kurope. In sb short, it most be admitted that, up to the moment to ti which our present narrative extends, the oonduot of the popnlaoe was admirable in the extreme. m On the night between the l(th and 17th, it became n known to the government that the people had attempted ad to induce two oavalry regiments, the Oth and the 13th lie Ckmftvn a CKtval, to give up their artns. The Minis- s'i ter of War being Informed of this, decided at once to remove them from Paris, and accordingly, at break of tr dav, on the 17th they were marched out of the capital, pi On Friday the 17th, the Bourse exhibited still further ft improvement. The ease afforded to commerce by the fe paper circulation, produced this effsot. The depredation of of bank notes, whteh would naturally have ensued, was, w to a great extent, controlled by the oondltion imposed th oa the bank, of publishing a weekly statement of its Fi financial oondltion. In faoc, it is plsesd under the same jo conditions preoisely as ths Bank of Kngland, so that the b< holders of its notes are always informed of the eeeurity th on which they must depend. Still, however great the of confidence, so long as bank paper is not oonvertible loto ri specie at the bank itself, it must undergo more or less m depreciation, in comparison with bullion, and it was ac- si eordlngly found that, to convert a 1.6U0 net* into f a tfa pieces, at any of tho money okangers on Fi Iday. oost at l')X franos, a discount, in other words of '2% per cent, re while to obtain gold, required a disoount of four time* to that amount, or 10 per cent., and even for that it eould In not every where be obtained th In order to extrioate the government, to a certain ex- pi tent, from ita financial embarraaomeata, the mlnliter of m flounce reported to the government various expedient! si on the 17th, wbloh on the eame day were incorporated w in proclamation!. By ooe of them, an extraordinary sa tax, aaountiog to 60 per cent on the entire amount of w the direct eoatributiosu, ? ordered to be lsvled. By bi another, the payment of the Treaeory bond* whs poet- ra pined for six or twelve inontha, tbe holders being, how- a aver, at libarty to convert them into > per cents at the tli mai ket prices. Another decree authorised the govern- pi mint to appropriate 00 millions of franoa to the aid ol m the banks of discount established for tbe relief of coa> ui merca in the capital and in the ptinelpal commercial ia towns. d Although apeeie was thus unobtainable at tbe bank, t? tbe more respectable olaaa of private banks accommo- re dated their customers with it to a moderate extent, with- b out any premium, and the pauio which must have en- [ rued, was thus, so far at least as regarded foreigners, con- p siderably mitigated. Large numbers of strangers, how- h ever, left Paris on tbe 18th and the eucoeeding days ? ci Russian sutj.ots withdrew en mane. Ou the evening si of tbe 17th it was reported that Austria bad renounoed a her diplomatic relations with tne provisional govern- tl ment; and as all Austrian subjsote thus lost diplomatic a protection, tho majority of ihein prepared te quit the c o>pl al $ The French Republic. ? The Paris jnamuls of Saturday ey. ning, the 18th ult., V are almost exoluaivelv occupied by comments on tho po- a pular demonstration of tbe preceding dry. It is cousi- u dered a triumph over an attempt-d roaotion?a suooess t gained by the mass over those who, it is aaid, wished to t impede the progress of the repubm. It la impossible to d misunderstand the light io which the people themselves ti regard their vlotory j it is oelebra ed as a triumph, and n something more. c The night has passed in perfeot tranquillity, though 1 the demonstration continued for some hours after the departure of our last despatch. Bodies of m?n. march- ti ing nine and ten abreast, oontinued to defile along the A Boulevards from four till seven o'oloek, stooping the p traSo of the orosa streets, for it was impossible lor ve- tl hides to break through the lines; they o >uld only pass o in the intervals between the several corps. As night tell erowds collected in different spots, but prinolpally ] about the Porte St. Denis aud Porte St. Martin The s! inhabitants in this quartsr illuminated their houses, and tl about eight o'olook an Immsnse body of people began to tl move slowly along the Boulevard In the direction of the A Madeleine, singing and oalling on the shopkeepers to * light up; the cltlsens were taken by surprise, and when- M ever a delay occurred, criea ot '' Dts Lampions" were o raised; as soon as lamps were fixed to the balconies, the n crowd gave a round of applause and marohed on. In fi this way they advanced into comparative darkness, c leaving abltse of light behind them They were in a t very good humor, and not the slightest damage was done; not a single pane of glass was broken, nor aid the e shopkeepers exnibit any alarm though neither police t nor military were to be be aeeu. Bodies of tue new n uuu? >'uuue win uuueuinu iu ouuBiuaruuio iorce ID the Rue Rivoll, end other etreete, but out of the line of D march At the Boulevard des Italians sections of the p crowd branched off and made the aide atreeta illuminate ri In the aama manner. By 10 o'elook the throng began f to diminlah, and by midnight every thing waa quiet d again. Some of the pepera apeak of the illumination ae t? it it had been a tpontaueoua expr. aaion of rejoicing; it ai waa entirely oompulaory. b Tbia rup'ure between the National Ouard and the bulk of the people ia an additional element of anxlet y in ti the already gloomy aapeot of affaire. The lamentable f< want of unity in action, even among a body ao organ- u is ad aa the aimed citizens, ia proved by the foot that cbe > march to the Hotel de Ville waa a measure not sanction- f. ed by a majority of the leglona. It waa strongly oppos 6 ad by General Courtaia, the commander-in chief, and 0 Guioard, ohief of the etatf. How a step ao important r could he taken without the fully-aecertained oonaent o{ g the whole body, ia inconceivable; but having been b dene, the ill effect ia no; partial?the whole of the le- a gions are oompremiaed. An addraaa baa appeared to- o day from a number of the National Guards, but not ti very numeronaly aigned, denying that thay intended to e< Intimidate the government?they only wlahed to expresa ? an opinion en tho exeoutlon of tha aeoree regulating ii their organization. But explanations now aro of little ci use. si The present position of all the atmedforoe of France ii in relation te the people ia singular. The army, not- u withstanding manj reaacuranoea, has not recovered r< from the disgrace inflicted by the general disarming ; a the public are not sufficiently reassured of its disposition * to permit the introdnetlon even of two regiments into Pari* without a murmur. The National Guard is now a fletri, tainted with anti-revolutionary tendencies; the ti Gaide Mobile is imperfectly armed end quite undisot- ft piined. The military and political systema seem alike fi disorganised p JAn aooident involved the prieets of the Irish College a here in the popular demonstration of Friday, and gained ri them a oharucter for liberality, which, on thia occasion at least, ihey had no intontlon of earning A depute- d tion of Irishmen was to wait that day on the govern- t ment, and the clergy of the college were to join them at ir the ilstel de Ville.

We Hilt admit that there ie act much regal wisdom this communication, and that little faith oan be plaoeu the pacific promises of Charles Alb rt to-day, when letters of the 9th of February and 9th of September o plaoed in oontaot It la lit I should atate, that about ie latter period, when the people were drunk with oonItational joy, ao many rlolent artlolea appeared In the uruaU?the oenaorahip being atill existing?egalnat uetria, that remonstrances were ma b from Vienna, id tbut the government was aorely embarrassed barest! its desire to stand well wi'h the people and not to reek with its powerful neighbor. V middle term was iopted: the editor nad writer of the mnet offensive nrole whs induaed to resign, n handsome letter, full of ompllnieute and promises, being written to him by the ivsrnment at the time; but when the Austrian cabinet nbliahed in the official gazette of Milan the satisfaction ad apology foroed from tb- oabinet of Turin, the self ire ef the autboi was wounded, and he printed the letir he had reoeired from the Secretary of State, and the Dnble-deallng of the court was exposed At that period re censorship existed; but ainoe the constitution was roinlsed, and the liberty of the press was its firstborn, 3 further reclamation has been male by Austria, lough here, and more particularly at Oeuoa, a crusade Lombardy is* daily reosmmeuded. * * But, alas, there are two eiilea to every question ; and bare unfortunately witnessed the initiatory measnren f too many revolutions not to bs alarmed on seeing the me symptoms exhibited here I know not the hour 'hen the people of Lombardy will burst forth I see aat the frontier between it Is nothing bettor than the iver lessia, and furtber south the Po, the line being acly undefended; and I nek you, oan the people of Oeoa, ter iustauce, woo are oonatitutionally made, and ho absolutely at preeent dlotatn condition* to the court f Turin, be prevented from throwing up their hati, iving a hurrah for any thing you please, and, in ahort leading the Austrian territory ? Then eomea the adanoe of the German army, the thunder of cannon, the lorlftoe ci human life, alternate aucoesa and defeat, un il a ory ie heard In Kranc#--Savoy ia once more overrun, he Alps are agaiu crossed, Lombardy is invaded, and a [eneral war is the result. The Inhabitants of Turin are peaceably inoliued; bat he pressure, as I have already said, oomes from Genoa, understand that all the Sisters of Charity have b?aa xpelied from the hospitals of that city, under the pre uoe that they were a Jesuit depsndenoy, and the cava f the sick has been oonhde to other oharitable persona, rho are protected by a military force. This I give aa uly one of the specimens of the violenoeto which pubo opinion leads, and how necessary it ia to give it a roper uirrction. ? I am told that the oontt of Sardinia la at last about to sooguise Queen Isabella, of Spain ; and from what L ave heard of the great talent of the Spanish Consul leneral here, 1 have no doubt the recognition should be tiributed to his judiolous conduct. Hungary* The following ia our correspondent's letter, dated VInna, March 9 : ? " 1 have just learned a fact of the highest impertanee, rhich has produced here an immense sensation. On the imposition of Prince Metternich the Supreme Conneil f State hue pronounoed the dissolution of the Hungn an Parliament. The Hungarian Chancery was oonok>'d to-day to devise menus of executing that measure, rhich may he attended with the most fatal consequences rou are aware that the Chamber of Deputies, assembled t I'resburg, has voted an address to the Empcior, in rhich the whole system of policy of Prince Metternioh openly condemned. A more frank and at the same ime loyal temenstranoe was never before addressed to be Austrian government] by any of the great corpora ions of the empire. " The Chamber of Deputies of Hungary reooarvnands lis Majesty ' to surround his throne with constitutional ostltutione, in accord with the ideas of the age,' and donands those institutions for the whole, empire The 'hamber of Magnate lias fully oonourced In the address, ostead ot acoeuing to the d?sire oi H-angary, to the exigencies ot tho times, and the popuKtiou of the empire, 'rtuce Metternioh has resoived to play his lest stake, and lrorced the dissolution of the Parliament " A dreadful tumult broke out at Pesth on the ttth. It was provoked by the spread ot a report that bank-notea vould not be oonverte-.l by the State, which waa in a itate of bankruptcy. Tho notes immediately became inconvertible, and a egular run for ?i>eoie ensued. Tbia absurd panlo, howiver, baa been enppreaaed, and bank notee are oireulated rs before. Hob em] a.

It is muoh to be feared bat peaoe will not be restored without further blcodhed .? The following are extracts from a Hamburg paper of he 17th:? Ukhlin, Maroh 18,3 P. M. " The king is wavering. He haa already conceded the institution of a burgher guard, which was included in he constitutional refoims demanded by the people. The 'Unietry have refused to act unless on the solicitation of he burghers Th? armed police manifest every dispoition to conciliate thi people. " The petition for the abolition of the censorship oi ho press Is granted by tbe king. " A deputation of jbO students has waited on the Prince if Prussia to demand the withdrawal of the tn ops, and o inform him that in ca?? of retinal they would inatantv arm and resist them in the event of their attaoking be people " A collision hag taken place between the military and .he civilians Some barricades have been erected, and ho bridges have been drawn up.
