Tho ptpara will glorify the I'sdero of the reyolu tion. But It woi indecision on the one part, the Influ" once of a mob on the other, and chance above all, tha* wore Its only leaders. Evory thing was soon ended, and r?rl??the real P?rli- that la, the immense majority of the citizens tbnt wanted Uw and order, had not yet b*gnn to stir, save a f<w efforts that wore made to eountvraot the mov*?aont, when it was "too late" No important event, mid I doubt not this will be one of the most Important events of the oge, ever sprnog from a more accidental and stupid cause. You have heard about tho agitation on the subject of ttio banquets. The mlolstrv, direct* 1 as usual by Louis Philippe, decided to Inflict a blow on these banquets-being political meetings In wrlob the eating and dilnklng were a mere pretext, In order to bring the people together. At the opening of the "S'-?elon," they Inserted In the royal speech th? w.'rds, " ewirmi# ew are ?gfe?"?enemies or blind m-u?applying It to the Deputies who had taken part In tlio banquets. This aroused the anger of those deputies, who maintained they were Insulted. The ministry answered they had no Intention to Insult the honorable members Furthermore, ii the eddres*?that Is, the answer to the royal speech, whioh In voted upon, phrase after phtese, by ttie Chamber of Deputise-the ministry proposed to Insert the vory s-ma words, ' enarMtt an amu* fee," which exalted much anger, either truly genuine or ouiy protended Au amendment, proposing to erase the-e two words, which the ministers hid ssnl wire nnt^ iti.eodrd to Intuit auy m-mber, was etl^red tttill thoy. w?ra eiupid enough, or, raihar, weak enough, as thoy_ yielded to the old king, to epporo the amoudment, audi declare ihey would resign If It wis ad< pte.l As they" tied a certain majority In the honse, that amendment was rejected, of oonrse The result was to exasperate the opposition In tha oourss of the debate, the minister* had maintained that they had a right to proh Ibtt the bar quite. The opposition decided they would have 1- a bsnquet?that they would agitate with cold veal and champagne. Tha ministers seemed to answer that they wo old have those that would organise the banquet E NE" NE\ brought before the have the question settled by law; and such *?i tbelr intention, wuen the opposition pub'.ithed a manifesto, calling out the National Onard and tbo student* to form a prooeeslon from a certain cquare to tha place where the banquet was to tako place. That manifesto, or proclamation, ws? inserted in tba papers of Monday, February -II. Up to that tlma, you ae how mean, how very email, are the men and the events Ihe events ?ill a row bigger and bigger from this time. This callit it out of boys who all love liberty and reform?I do not know that order is necessary to gee tn?tn ? could not but wake up tlie government it decreed thatgrrat military forces would bo immediately brought to Taria to keep order, and enforce the lows 1'bia frightened the opposition; and mark It, the next day?the day the banquet should hare taken place the opposition papers, fearful, with great appaieut reason, to strengthen the ministers if any disorder took place, published a manifesto inlormlng all oitisms that they had given up the banquet, and udviriog them to remain at home. The fact Is, that the traders only wanted the fall of the ministry, some to obange the government, others to get plaoes. They had oonvoked the National Guards and the studsnts, merely to give more importance to their foolish manifestation. It had too mush already. An immense orowd, without arms, assembled In the plaoes where the precessions, was to organist; the mob was roused up. the Munioipal Gourds,a body ofsolect soldiers, which wereespiolally picked up for the service of Paris, dispersed the orowd whloh was shouting Viae la Rejarmt! and of oourse did not use their arms; hut s'ill a maa was killed in the mtlte. Immediately his body was oa'ried all'over Paris, with cries of revonga! revenge ! All the storm were shut np. .Still no firing took plsoa dating the first day. At the House of Deputies, OdiUon Barrot, the leader of the opposition, bad on that day moved for a bill of impeachment against the ministers, and it had been agre-d that the motion would be debated on Thursday, two days afterwards But on the Wednesday morning, Paris was full of bxrrioades, in full insurrection. Who had made them ? The mob? that is those few thousand men that had nothing to loee and every thing to gain from a revolution, and I urn glad to say, to the honor of Purls, chat for a mob, it was an exoelleut one, that behaved so valiantly during the fight and so honorably afterwards. But alas! thisistbo rule?tht exoeptiens are sad. To rrsuuis?in such cases It ie the duty of the National Guards to assemble, take arms and preserve order. It happened tta ?t the National Guard, which was highly dissatisfied with the Ministers, refuted to go out?they did not wacttoflsht against the reform as they were themselves In favor of it. The fools, they might hava saved the situation. As for the troops of the line, they fougbt a little In the beginning of the day, but on one side. Tha ministers,who bad depended on the Nationtl Dtiardl rlid tlrtf darn fn nrlva nnUro fn tha* troops, and those did not. like to move,units* mixed with the National Guards. During all theso hesitations, the insurgents inoreased in number, raised up oarrloid'B ->n every point, and took possession of saverul posts iu thn city ?killing, In most oases, the Municipal Guards, wbo had likely received orders, and fought more readily. It is then that the king, learning the situation of affairs, resolved to change his ministers, and this tvas annouoaed immediately. But on the evrniug, when everyone thought all was over, a t>oy flrrd on the commandant of aprscof the Municipal Guards, who was placed at the hotel of the Secretary of Foreign Affairs, M. Outsit, and this oommandent waa kilDd immediatsly all the post returned the fire* and fifty or sixty persona felt dead or wounded, among whom very few were rioters. This event tiool jod tnc iate of the revolution, l'aris had illuminated in rejoiolng at the fall of the ministry, or rather at the end of the riot, when the revolution b -gan During the night from Wednesday to Thursday, tho king, who had at first entrusted ex-Count Male with the chotes of a ministry, mads another concession in choosing in hia place M. OdiUon Barrott, the very leader of the opposition. It was too late still. On Thursday morning. all the National Ouard were out, but nothingoouiil now stop the revolution, as several of the troops of the lino bad giveu up their arms to the insurgents. The National Guard tried vainly to atifls tke revolt; all it oould do was to join in the movement, to prevent the effusion ofblcod?to keep the ioturgeuia within bounds, if possible ; eo that the National Guard, who could have maintained crder in tha beginning, if it had taken part with the government, was unable to do anything when the gravity ot atronmetaacce eulDd it out. In a fow hours the palaco was entered without nny tight what ever, the king abdio&ted, fled, and the moo Was sovereign In this proud capital f he king bed abdicated In favor of his grandson, of course; but the regent, the one he had choeen, and compelled the Chambers to accept, was the Duke de Nemouis As he is v?ry unpopular, he then proposed the regency of the Duobess of Orleans, mother of th? you >g king; but always too late. From the backing out ot the government, In face of the revolt, the cons?qu-nt hesitation, and suirendeitnr ot the troops ot the l.ue, the events weot on eo rapidly that all was over before the g.-retrr part of tha city had auy idea of tha danger the dynasty was la.

The Portuguese chambers have been occupied more than a mouth in preparing their reply to the discourse of the throne. In the Peers, the debate has bceu one of Intense excitement, lor the ceusoa of the recent revolution, and foreign lnterferenoo In the domostio affairs of this country, when discussed, revived the political hatred which so unfortunately divides this cs'.lon. The great evils inflicted oa Portugal by the destructive civil war of lost year, plaoe snoh a responsibility on those who caused it, either on the one hand, by forcing the people to revolt by oppressive measures; or, on tha other, by oxolting thsm to a fratiioidal war, to change the ministry, and put themselvesia thsir vacant planes, thnt, as wed might be supposed, the debato was ( haraoteiizsd by that earnestness of fealiog which such a position ought to Inspire. Fortunately, Europe docenot present a parallel for the state of things extstiog here. N. Ither party conquers t ' and neither oan cla m the Influence i,f auocees to Justify th*ir course. Ths foreign powers forced a oompiotuiar; but this,though preventing the rffuidoa of b ood, will give the party In tne wroug. when time shall prove it, the grsatsr odium of having iodtreotly produced this degrading act against the indvpnndeoce of their e uutpy Each party, nndsr these circnmitanoes hue felt toe muab its responsibility to the nation to em.t any effort for its justification; and on both sides distinguished o-ators have presented every lncldont to eave themselves, not only from tha condemnation of Portugal, but from the csnsuree of the world. , | The chartists, under Costa Cabrsl, had power from 1941 to 1946; then occurred the revolution of v,c'v, ty wtl;h ha was pat out of pltee; thvu euother, irftJotuber of same year; and from that time to May 1947, the oivll war, wnl)h Das plunged in distress and mourning this unfortunato kingdom. Costa Cabrsd was accused in fhs parliaments of France and England, of having produced this war by hie Abuse I of law and plaoe. In thn chamber he defended bimaelt most ably, and defied his accusers to provo their charges; and If they dil not, to take the title of alandiwers and calumniaters He replied to th* oharge of having produced the revolution, by showing that it regtd with most fierceness while he was away?that his leaving had not quelled it, and consequently it was not against him. He complained I ittsrly of the ii justice dene him by de prirmg htm of hi i rights and honors, without even a trial. He s?lj that the accusation* of collusion, maivaisa'loo Sti, made against Lim, had all.) been made against l-ls accusers, many of whom had been ministers, and that in their case they were no truer than in his own Costa Cjbral. or the Count of Thomar, is to iden lfied with the affairs of Portugal, and is so often aecuseJ wad defended, that his grounds of defence have been pre rented In Juitloe to him, the m ire so, because, In the United States, the aoousatlous corns principally through English ohsuueis.

Rllctiel Chevalier on the Industrial Resources ef France?View o( the Called states [From Oaligiianl'a Messengor, March 21J There is some variety in the original columns of the Paris journals of this day, aud income ot the articles there is much interest. None is more interesting ft this moment than a communication to the Dlbafs, under the head of "(Question dee TravailUumby M Michel Chevalier, and which the Dc'jat.s publishes in lieu of any leader ot its own. M. Owvalier's communication is the first of a series. At present we lay before our readers a passage which contains intormation which will excite much attention. It is impossible, after this, to deny that the state of society under the old government was not such as it ought to have bees, ou env principle ot right or humanity, and therefore whilst we must re gret the haste with which M. Louis Blanc hus attempted to reduce his theories to practice, we must at the same time do justice to the benevoleuce of his views and intentions The great error of this gentleman was the supposition that he could, as with the touch of a magic wand, convert the misery of centuries into a paradise of enjoyment. M. Michel Chevalier evidently would proceed more slowly and more surely, and he begins by showing that before labor is organised on a new basis, it is well to devise the means of labor. France, notwithstundmg the energy aud intelligence of her inhabitants, which render them capable of any efforts in the mirch of general industry, has her real wealth founded on her natural resources, and her first duty should be to cultivate them to such an extern that every laborer may reap sufficient for his maintenance in comfort. There is no country in the world where natural resources are more extensive and ubuadint than those ot France. The cultivation of her waste lands, ind me triplication of a better system of cultivation, ? ould insnre the production to such an extent us to give to each laborer the ineuits of an existence such as he is entiled to us a member of the great humati family; and until he lias this there will be none of the equality and fraternity !.<> MAtf... # f . eitoukl./. 'I'h M ~ velopeinentuf agriculture in France, far from paralysing the operations ut manufacturing industry, would enldrge them, lor a large portion of the population now toiling to obtain u miserable pittance in manufactories would be provided lor in the more healthy lab?rs of the earth, and their abandonment ot their previous occupation would be doubly compensated by the further use of machinery. We repeat, then, thai (he first duty as the first interest of society in France, is to improve her uatural resources The following is the passage rf M. Chevalier's article to which we have alluded ' Industry, whloh in the opinion of eome pessimists, would be the triumph oi m .tier, is, on tli? contrary.only the human intelligence, seating its domination on trio material world, and oonveriing it into a pedestal; in the same manner tba ardent desire manifested oy the workmen for their welfare, in-tead of being regarded a? a material appetite, should, when accompanied by a sinoera and lively lova of labor, be looked on by impartial judges a* an uspiratton of the inn.d towards independence, op pesed *o the material wants with wliluh it was oppressed.

It is f t this reason that It is the oaly oountry I the world where misery has not 'filled up its cup of alHiotton. What most sti ikes the Kuropean traveller tu that oountry istbn geneta! oom'fort of the people. P'rom their overy day appearance, one would Imagine it to he always a Sunday. In their alimentary regime a in their die**, in their general habits of life, I would almost say in their very language, no sensible difference oan be lound between ibe peasant and the workmen, and the most polished classes of the prinoipal towns I have more than onoe witnessed the ( quality ef the American people wich regard to their mode of living, In going from Philadelphia to Pittaburg. by the I'ennsy Iranian canal I stopped at the small town of Hollidayaburg; I mistook the inn, and instead of going into that ef ibe gentlemen, I entered one of those frequented by the working classes. At tho table d'ho'e I f >on<l myself seated between a blacksmith and another laboring man. The dinner was precisely the same ?a I had met "with at all the beet hotels I had frequented In the oountry. The democratic mechanism would have worked with Use encores In tbo I r otced States, if that well being, peculiar to all, had been taken from them. Let us,therefore,consider it as well established,that in order to make the second half of the anoio;;t Hen flat, which is morover almost extinct, arrive at the possession of the benefits of civilisation, tha roost urgent matter Is to raise i's material existence to the level of coafrrt Now, what I* it that is wanting in France in order tint all her people, or at l*s?t the immense majority, from enjoying that degree of comfort, brlow which i ounnotconceive the existence of any lioerty or dignity ' There ie wanting of auffloient supply of prodaote of all kiuda of articl-a of food, of ololbing, of furnl.ure, and of iu*l.

Ceo it be article! of clothing ? No, for many Frenchmen are very badly clothed, aud suffer mverely from the cold, anu nowhere do we And bonfires made with the superabundant proluciloas of our looms It la the semo with all proono act eeern- ( tlal importance. Let us thou say to the deceased M. rtyrieye da Msyrinhao, who reporos in b<* lonih, and where unfortunately hie doctrine* til' noli:inn.l .-eonoinv have not folio td him, that it la talis that Kruno* is too productive.

It requirea muoh mora than *he furnishes to enable all bar people to ha rellavsd from th? pressure of degrading misery, and oonseqaantly tli- problem of popular amelioration c?nt.o. be resolved by a great developement of production. Lit us present tha same demonstration under another form Tha mass or all tha products wh'.ota Krance offers to tha material wants of her population of 33,000.000 Is differently eitimatad j It le probably au esag* gorstlon to estimate It In money at ten millions. Supposing this to be divided at so much a hra<l, It sronld give each Frenchman 79 oentimea to < spend per day In clothing, meat, lodging, Instruction, and enjoyment, and It (s out oi that sum that any saving tor a luinre day must be made.

A practical conclusion may be, therefore, drawn. It In more particularly the inoreaee of production that should excite our solicitude It Is not that I contest the importance of a g od and equitable division of th? produce; but henceforth tt is impossible that the division shru'd rot be good. The moat numerous .less baa in Its favor the irresistible force of the rising tide; every ioorei<ae or production will rj-oeaearily turn to the profit of the working class**. What governmont, what pretendsra to privilege can now mistake that Uod wills it, and that the fata of whoever opposes such a tendency must bo to b? oarrlei by the curront to confusion and to ruin. 1 shall have occasion to return to the subject cf the division of produce. Dut it wes useful to place In prominent relief the id?a that popular progress supposes before all tbl gs an increase of production; that beyond that nothing a-rious Is possible; that all projects are valr ; all combinations ephemeral.

Portraits of anted warriors. statesmen, literary men, Sto., are interesting to the public, nnd there is a propriety in placing t'jem in a pub lio hell for exhibition, but in the other ease it must arise from a miserable vanity on the part of the originals of the pictures, and of the artists who produce No 3. Thk Late Gov. Wright, painted for the city of New York, bv J. Whitehorus, N. A. ?If the number of square feet of oanvaso used. Is to decid* the question of merit in a work of art, this of Gov. Wright would rank as a great picture. The heaJ Is weakly painted, and dull and stolid in expr-sslon, the form atift" and clumsy; the accessories, such as the figures of the carpet and the table, aro well done, but it laaks the life, look and vigor which constitute the highest excellence of a portrait. It is the very antipodes of the splendid picture of ax-Gov. iiouok, by F.lliott,whiah was in the last year's exhibition. 14. A Child bringing Flowers to Princess Elizabeth when a Prisoner, in the Reign ok Mart, by d. Huntington, N.

The trees in thom all have a family look, and there Is a Umen*ss that speaks of the rules of schools ; this picture, though not very exoellent In color, has a bold and natural look, as if, when the artist painted It, hs loit the time-worn rules at home unmolested. It is a verv good picture. 24 The Blind Pilgrim, by Wm.

There ii nn exprai alon in it almost divine, iudioating benevolence of heart and extreme delight, in oonveying to the old man the beauties which he shall never behold. The oolor la after the modern school, florid, and has none of that look whioh wa Had ia tue plotures of the old masters. With th's exception, it is a flue produotion. 38 Lady Jare Gret and Km as Keckiroham, Diifutiro in thk Towsr by D. H. Huntlugtoir, N A?Tula is an sxoallont piotura; in oolor suporior, furl; la not florid, and does not glare, but is qnite transparent, and the pnrpla tints eeptolally, are tiuts and uot purple paint. This la an excellence, whioh, ia modern works, is very rare, and should be highly prised. The form aud the expression of the faoo of "Lady Jane," are very good, tut not striking; but "Friar Keokingham" is grand ; his figure and faoe full of Tigor and energy, and yet not theatrical nor overdone. Mr. Huntington does credit to the institution and to himself, by the produotion of such pictures as these. 47. Fori rait of V/ebstkr. by C E.

Tho light which Hoods the figure of the poet ia very clear and Inula; had all the rest ot the pioture been kept down, or In halt shade, the effect of centering the light on the principle figure, would be as it ever is, true to nature and to the higuest principles of ooraposition Si. Tnic Bucks last Huh, by V. Grand, J. W. Audubon, N. A. ? iu the ??cond saloon there is a pioture of startled deer, by these artists, which has many good points about it The timid and trembling look ot the lawns is exoellent. If we remember aright, thoce was last esasoD, a rery good pio are of a scene on the Hudson, by the same; but this pioture of the Backs' las' run, is Tery bad, indeed. In this pioture, the arli'ls seom to have drawn n rigid outline, and mechanically filled up to that line, and left it, forgetting that nature knows no outline, and that to represent her oorrectly, none whatever should appear. There never were such dogs, or such a shaped or colored horse since creation. Vet it is the joint produotion of two artists, bearing a nama known tba wide world over, as exalted and high in tbo rank of uatnraliets Toe production and exhibition of such a picture as this, from such a source, is a perfeot mystery, and there we leave it. 81 Ruth anl> Naomi, by W. Ttge, N. A.?This is tho picture of the exhibition. All wu" know aught of the genius of Page, are proud to claim him as au American artist. This largo picture, from his hand, has many splendid points and some faults The story is the touching out of Ruth aud Naomi uOrpab kissed hor motherin-law, but Ilutb elave unto her."' Tho face of Naomi is good In the highest degree; her sorrowing bat sahuued look of resignation, speaks oi years of suffering, of the lots of her hatband and children, und of a feeling of . utter loneliness in the world. The countenance of Ruth j I* expressive of the impassioned declaration of attachment wbloh is passing her lips, and her deep devotion to I the stricken mother. We thiok the faults are these ? Tho loot of llnth, and the point where it meets the ancle, i do not seem to be quite onrreot; porhaps thej were not painted from a living rnvdel. The rigut arm 1s nearly horizontal, and does not bend around the llgure of Naomi, but passes her like a bar; the throat ana neck, also, look mora swollen than would bo natural, even under the influence of sueh Intense emotion as that which she endures. But it is a great composition. The oolor is very olear and even luminous; and Mr. Page has produced those broad masses of light and the consequent quiet grandeur which we admire so much in the anolent mnstors; and few, we think, even of those glorious ones of old. would bo unwilling to acknowledge ita paternity. No man but one possessed of great genius, would have selected such a ?n: jeot, or have ex*outed it so well. 141. Kull l.issth poktbait ok a TktlS Hl'ntkr, by C. L. Elliott. N.

Cacsht Neman. by W. 8. Mount, N. A ? Everybody knows Mr. Mount's genius This pioture represents pome farm workmon resting under the shadow of some trees. One is asleep, and tho old farmtr is coming up stealthily behind, with a grin of malloo and cunning on hie face The others, seeing blm, are trying to wake the sleeper, and that the picture has much merit is apparent from the fact that the visitor instantly feels aniious that the fellow abould be routed before the oil ehap gets up.

It requires genius an l artlatic skill of the highest order to cops with anoh subjects aa this and the one above namad (999 ) >Tis said that " thoae who know nothing fear nothing;" and this ia true enough of the albttata of the presont day. The great Alleton wu asked why he had not painted acme piotnrea having the 8aviour as the theme.

There Is sufficient Indication el talent In the artist; but be has no power whatever to portray such c'sub'im- subjeot aa "Christ on the Mount," and should not have attempted It. 1244 Indian Burial. 8 Kastnun, H ?This Is a cloture o' great merit, but It has one glaring fault.

'431 Portrait oe a Hot,' by O. L dough.?Here is'a picture worth having. The old hat ia very good, and the boy himself an ovary day boy, who makes no attempt in his pfoture to look uncommonly arch or rogu'sh. The color Is very good, and he has a look as if warm with raoont exercise, i here la a certain fullness around the eyas, almost always found la nature, and always left out in a made up picture, wbfoh shows I hat the artist has an eye fori ife. and akJU to portray It.

Encyclopedia of Hitlirry. Hera la a composition illustrative of revolutionary davr. The Agu es ara well painted, and that is all that can be said In its faror. We have in our remarks upon other ploturea frequently alluded to that caidlnal principle laid down by fh? great artiste of all ages, derived from and endbraed by nature?that there ehould be in a oompoeition one great point of aotion and Interest, and that there tha artlat ehould expend his strength, and kaepall else subordinate to this point. The artist has followed well this principle In his ploture, and has got hia point? but what a point! Tbe Marquis has been wonnded in tha leg, and a soldier has bared tbe oalf, and ia putting around It a baudsge ; and to make It very pathetic, so that one's heart might almoat break to look upon it. he has portrayed the red blood coming through the bandage. Here is pathoe! But unfortunately, the breeohes hO contiguous ere slso bright red, and there being more of tbem than of the blood, tbe breeehia bear nway the palm, and beat the bendage, out and out Itlaatrauge that one who can paint figures aa well as these ara paint ed. should so lack judgment as to make the groat point of interest in an hletorioal picture, the bandaging of a wnundrd leg!
