Pakis, Mnrch 18, 1848?Evening The demonstration of the working men yesterday wasfollowed last night by a demand for a general illumination, which was of course complied with, lu the Faubourg St Germain the people were peculiarly exacting in their demands, and this suspected Carliat quarter was forced 10 wear the brightest air of any in P-iris It had been freely rumored in the course of the day that agents of IIenrv V. had been at work in the Hue St. Denis, and that h whits flag had been raised on the old port* Tbis may have been cunningly dene tviih the view of turning away hostile ones from the National Guard, to whose manifestation of the day before the turn-out of the workmen was meant as a renlv Certain it is that theories ware chiefly " lies in Rtjiub lique, "A mart leu CarlitUt," " A bat let farittocratie," " Pica la gouvernnntnt provitoire " The number of w?rain<'u "f all trades who marched to the Hotel d<* Ville, aid from that to tb" Column of July, is estimated at from 100,000 to 150,009 tnsn He that uh it may. this much is certaiu, that all the workman of Paris and the environs were there regimented according to their respective trades. Some priests who joined the procession were greatly cheered lu the evening the National Guard issued a declaratiou that they bowed respectfully to the decision ef the provisional government. The scene that took nlsce within the Hotel He Ville mu?t hnvd be?n very strange. The delegats* frem the trades demattded three things? the removal ot the troepa from Paris; the postponement of the election of officers of the National Guards to the 5th of April; and of the elections for the Natienal Assembly to the Slat of May. M. Louis Blanc promised, in the name of the [provisional government, a deliberation on these demands, when a delegate cut him short with the laconic demand, " What answer are we to return to the people 1" The popular, the most popular young orator endeavored to explain now unbecoming it would be for a government te appear to act ander the fear of menace, when he was stopped by the following pithy speech: "The people experts something else than words; it requires a definitive reply. Take what time yeu like for deliberation, but we will not leave this without a reply to give the people." M. Lsdru Rollin spoke, ana it must be confessed, spoke courageously: he told them that they were not the representatives of all Fmnce, and that, altheugh they might make demands in their own name, they had no right to assume the representation of the departments.? Lamartine, aa usual, rose with the occasion,and in his most powerlul manner, vindicated the rights of the government to independent dt liberation. He enid he would not concent to the hsety performance of any net that would look to th* nation as if Paris asserted a monopoly of liberty and of the republic, which had been won for all France, and not for some citizens only.? In a word, he told them he would lay down his life aoener than yisld to terror, and, as usual, snsh nerve and eloquence carried him through victoriously. The assemblages ot the people were caused by the following placard pealed up at an early hoar in the morning:? " The peepla, daring the t, were haroio, after the vietery were geuarous, and now are sufficiently magnanimous te refrain from In Slot log pnninbmeiit. They are caha, beeaase they are powerful and jest. Let vvU passion*. let wonaded Interests beware of provoking then ! The people are called epou to give a high moral and social direction. It is tbeir duty fraternally to call to order snob misled men aa may still try to maintain {irlvliaged bodies in the botemofour equality. They ook ?ith a severe eye npon these manifestations against that minister, who has given so many pledgee to the revolution. Let the people then assemble this day,the 17Lh. at ten in the moraine in the Place da la Ravolu tion, and there M^tm their will. W? have already abed our bieod la defeec* of the revolution, and ara ready ta tbtd it again. We will wait?wa whenre aften In want of tbc necessaries af life. All who at tbie hour march against tha raveluUan, are guilty of th? orima of leaahua-anlty. Let tie, than, citizen*! rally round tb* provisional government. Let a* again assure it that we are ready ta give it oar concurrence in all measures lor insuring order, unity, and tha pubiio safety. " Vtvi la Htpukliqut, Heaaiaa, Oatvieaso, CeHAie.tE, LvoHSLLiaa, PlLUtS, lUBI&T." Roziaaas, The Moniteur publishes the following account of the receptiou ol the delegates of 'he people on that day, at the Hotel de Viae:? " Towards two a'alook, all the member* of ths government, being collected together, a deputation composed or about forty persons from the different corporations and olube. was introduced; and M. Gerard read the following addteas: ? "Cltisens of tha provisional government, you have proclaimed that you wiabed ta have the revolution, tha sovereignty of tha peopla, damooracy, tho republic, a eoustitattnn made by ? natieoal ateembly. You have declared that all the oitlsens were national guards, and that all ought to oa-operata In the elections of the national guard. You have also declared that you wiibed to have teas Jlir elections, a real national guard, a veritable eenstltation ; that is the reason why we have ral lied areund you. and given you our support. Hawever, the subaltern authorities, charged to prepare the inscription .'or the netional guard have neglected the mean* of reurlniieg it complete, and It tha eleetiona take place on the 34th, there will not be any real national guard. Beai'l"*. thv people have not had lime to concert together oo the choice to be made, and, consequently, there will pot b? Any real eleohene. It is the same for tha other elections, and If it be desired to have a real national asseu bly. which can consolidate U ? revolution and tha tepublio, it Is lcdlepenetbla that all tha oitla*i,t shell be Inscribed on the electoral lists and shall have time to consult together, in order to vobe with an entire independence, and a perfect knowledge of what they are abi ut; but In order that tho elections be peifsotly indep-n lent and tree, it la neonaary that no armed and paid troops shell be iu the capital. The peopla look on the sr.idiets m brothers, and wish always to fraternise with them , but the democratic principle demand* that there he none but oltlsens there, where the people and the representatives have to deliberate. In consequence, we come to lay before you tha wiebeeof the peapieof Paris, sad to demand in its name? flrst, the removal of the troops ; second, tb* postponement to April 6, of the election* of the natioual guard ; and, third, tha postponement to May 31, of the eleodons of the national assembly Citis.-neof the provisional government, we cannot eon| rt ai it from ourselves that oountar revolutionary ma1; ouvies may endanger the publio peace and the revolu liuo, if your patriotism and devotedness should not eeve us Y>>sterJ?y u men,icing manifestation aimed at shaking j ou We reply to it by a aaoeful manifestation to defend you ,end tureelvei with you L?t the government giro an example of uaiou, coiifldeiise, and firmness, and 01 dor will Lo volld like liberty ; the republic will triumph, will constitute the honor oI Krsnoe, and will accomplish th- 1 uppl j?.*h of humanitj " M b>ui?( Blano said?The gorernmsnt of tha rapub 11.' is ft undtd on publie opinion, and will never forget that it Is ao Our strength, wa ara aware, in in that of the people, aid our will ought always te ba in uaiaoa with that whioh It axpreaeni Tha damanda which yeu hare expresad shall ba tha object of our dellberattona, and tha more to that they bare baan put forward in tarmn full of moderation.

We hope, oltinen members of the provisional government, that your patriotism, and your devote(lneis to the people, to liberty, to the revolution, will lhld mean* of dissipating all disquietude, aad of giving to the revolutionary maroh that oharaoter of order, liberty, union, aad universal confidence whieh ie necessary to it to assure the trlu mph of the republic and consolidate its destinies. The government ie too, wise not to desire to deliberate ; and we are too ainoere friends of order and liberty not to leave it the opportunity of deliberating. M. Lsnau Rolliiv. member of the proviaional government, said ?1 have only a word to add, and I believe this word will have some effect npon your minds. Tou represent Parts, but you couipreheud that France is composed of the whole of the citizens Now, two days age I sent to all the oouimlssaries of departments, to domaad this: Is it materially possible for the elections to take place on I the 9th April? Is It politically possibls. end is It for the interest of the establlehment of the renuhllc. for the aim tiocs to take place on tke 9th April? Von cannot, citizens. impose on the government to deliberate without being, before all, enlightened as to the state of France, without being informed by its commissaries. Yon certainly represent the most active, and, from that reason, the most intelligent oity; but you cannot pretend to represent the whole of France; yon oan do so but on one condition?tbat being elected by the people representatives of the people, you hare for the departments; as for the whole of Frauoe, as for Paris, the will and the decision of the people. Yon must wait a few days. I have fixed on tke 2*th ult. as the latest period for receiving from the most distant departments the answers that are to be made to me When the government, taking into consideration the wish of Paris, whioh ordinarily gives the Impulse to the rest of Franot, bat which cannot neilra to oppress Franos, shall have learned the views of the departments, it, as representing the whole country, will be able to assign a delay, if, In fact, it la necessary, for the eetabliabment of the republic, whioh is new only decreed, but which we do not wish to behold as yet passing away in smoke. If we do not consent to here a national representation which would be only a marked repreientatlou of the principle* wbloh have been deitroyed?If we do net oonsent to ageln see the government set aside, as It was in former times; if we are determined to have a representation truly republican, and If the people also will nave it: If we find that at this moment the elections cannot take plaoe In suoh a way aa to positively ensure the principle whioh we have aeon proclaimed after thenietory, then the elections shall be postponed. But wice mors I have to remark to you, that you. n fraction of the people, and not the delagatae rf the whole of France, oannot desire to receive a reply from us before we have obtained the necessary intelligence Therefore we take into consideration lbs wishes of this oity. Bat wait anHI the departments have declared how the matterstands; let as not say that Paris Is every thing, end that the rest of Franoe is, so to spaak, abandoned. When we shall have arrived, througn our oommiesarlei, at e knowledge Ui mo winuro ui iui w uuia VI vcbuuv, w au*u uuuiu iv n resolution, viz: the postponement of the election*, if that bt indispensable; but what we want, what yon want, is tbe real establishment of tho republic, which we have proclaimed on the barrioades. (Applause, ?m< Ledru Rollin) M. CstEr ?We only express opinions and wishes. We all know what agitations are going on in tbe departments?what is the influence of the enemies of the revolution?of the republic, and of the people. Yeeterdajr's manifestation must hare oompleteu your information on that point: and tbe maneearres which were so audaciously manifested in the midst of the capital, where tbe marks of the barrloadee are not yet effaced, are su&cient to oonviooe us that they are csrrlad on with much greater energy far from Paris, where the eyes of the foveroment are not so Immediately over everything. We are oonvinced that the republic and the revolution will be in danger if the elections are not oarrled on with a full and entire liberty en the part of the eitisene, and with deliberations mature and refleeted enough to give the real wishes of the people, a real National Assembly. It is ia the interests of humanity, in the iutereet ef tbe classes whioh are hostile to us. that we speak. The danger is not for us, it is for others; but we shall aot so aa to preaarve all the rights of the people, and all the intarests ul liberty It has bean repeatedly said that the abyss of revolutfons ought to be closed. Citissn* of tbe provisional government, you have now iu your hands the most magnlfleent of tasks. We have expressed to you our desires, we have conjured you to watch over the public safety, because we feel the ecuvietion that the people should set the example in ail things They ooght also to prove themselves to be the friends of order and liberty, and that ns they know how to fight, thsy also know how td deliberate aud express thsir thoughts We have now only to retire, and leave tba government te deliberate (Yet yes; no, no) A member of tbe deputation said:?Thrra are two questions upon which immediate answers may be given. They do not oouceru Paris; fthsy concern the disbaudment of all the paid troops, and the adjournment of tha elections In the National Guards M i.Ouis Bladc said?Citizens, there are two qutstioas whioh may be decided upon without au appeal to the opinions of the departments, lor it would be useless to wait for anv information noon them This is me oni nion, end 1 believe it to be tbe epiuioc of tbe provisional government. Only from motives which 1 havn already explained. and they are motives of great gravity, which must speak to the hearts of tbe people,for, from tha commencement of the revolution, the people Uave shown that they have a deep seuse of the dignity of man?from these same motives 1 request, oitiseus, that you will leave us time to deliberate, and allow us to do so at freedom. Tbat we may hi worthy of maintaining your liberty, ours should be respected I request, therefore, that you will not put your questions, saying " Answer immediately, or ws will not depart " This would be a violent proceeding. [No, no] This is a violence you do not intend to impose upon us. All we oao at this moment promise yon is, that we will deliberate without delay upon the two queitiona with which you are pre-ocoupied 1 engage you even in the intereet of the eolation* which yon seek, in the interest of the government whoso dignity demands all our aaro, sluoe we represent yon, I ooujure yon to leave the provisional government one day, at least, to seek wisdom from its deliberations. We will profoundly study the qpestioa, with a slneere desire of doing what the people demand, but at tbe same time preserving our liberty, because liberty Is a duty of conscience which you will not deny M 8o* a iks ?The delegates of the people hare no intention ol doieg any violenoe upon the provisional government, for we have an entira confidence in it. Somk DtLitnATEl? Not at all. M. Mosaics?In all, gentlemen, without exception, without exclusion; we have snstsined the government up to this day, and we will continue 10 sustain It till the Constituent Assembly meets. [Yes, yes, to the last J The circular of M Ledru ilollln ha* been approved by the people; the departments, when enlightened, will approve of it as Tatis has dene.
