Tht Pr,>gr,tt of 'h- Republic?The Elections-CanJiJalt for the Nitionil .humbly ? Vieivt of I he fatici on the Form of Government- - The C>nttitution of tht United Statet ? Theatrical Mal e**' Notwithstanding a long coutlnuauoo of great popular domonatrat.ont, athoupementi and proreMions, ecmblaed with the absence of any tHolent polios or ocntroiiug military prw?r, things have gone on here without any fuither disturbanoe. Partly from the alarm given to capital by the state of the oountry, and probably trim utter distrust In the provisional government, every description of security at the Bourse underwent an extraordinary and rapid decline. The three p.?r cents, whloh a year ago fluctuated about th? mean prices of 80 or 8'2, aotually fall last week below 31. The five*, whloh need to atand at liO fell to 50 ; but this depreciation, considerable aa it was, was nothing to that whioh affected bank shares. These share*, whicM a short time slooe were at 3 500, were aotually sold a fe* days since at 9i0, being 50 franej below par. Railway shares of every description have undergone alike tall. Those of the Orleans, for example, wnicn were at 1 300, are bow a little abjve 400, and bo of tba reft. Independently of the general distruat of the government, whioh has tended thui to extinguish oisJit, there are various other oanses whioh have more or less influeuoa. For example, an Impression has prevailed within the last ten or twelve days that government intended to make an enormous paper issu* through the lnatrumenta.ity of the Bank of France. It was said that notes to the amount of one thousand millions of franos would be issue 1 upon the seourity of the national forests, of the estimated value of fifteen hundred millions. This announcement for several days greatly depreciated every species of security. A day or two slnoe. however the Minister of Fiuanoe soot for ihesyndio ofthe Bourse, and communicated to him, in the most formal aud expllolt manner, an assuranoe that government had no intention whatever of mektug any such issue of paper meney. This had an immediately favorable effect on the market, and seourltiea of every description Improved From thia and from other oanses things aro now better. The threes are 44 60, and the fives at 61 go. The provisional government .has announced its intention of purchasing out the interests of all the railway, companies and taking these great lines of communication into its own hands; thus all the rsilways will beooma what the roada always ware, grsat government undertakings. These measures, however, the government aasaaes us, will be carried into effect with a dne regard to the righia of property, and that the stockholders of the different railways in operation, will be consulted, and nothlog done without their oonsent. As to ths unfinished railways, it is admitted that +hs stockholders oannot oomplete them, and that if eompleted at all it muat be by the State. With theae, therefore, there will be no scruple. They will probably be expropriated by jury, la the same manner as a building whioh is doomed to destrustion for the general improvement 0f a town. We have had within the last ten days the eleo'Ion of the superior offloers of the National Guard. Thia waa an oooasion en whiah serious apprehensions wei e entertained of tumult and disturbanoe. Nothing of the kind, however, took plaoe, and the results of the elections have proved to be In general, satisfactory to the moderate republican party. You will probably ba anrious to know what are tha present proepeoU of Franca in relation to its future form of f overnment. I have little to add in answer to inohu Inquiry, to that 1 have already communicated As to monarohy nnder any ssvsrelgn, or with any re trlctlOBf, it ic, I assure you, wholly oat of the question. The meat ardent partisans of Ilaary V. and the Count de Paris equally give up the idea of it. But a question will be debated a* to the form of the republic itself; and at the present moment, these are the question* which will be dlaouesed. One party will b j in f*vor of a republic with two ohamber* and a president. These ere what are here oslied the moderate republicans; they are in favor of giving a preponderating influ enoe to the property and intelligence oi the oountry The other party advocate a single Chamber, and a ministry without a Treatment. These are the more democratic, and revolutionary republicans, and th?lr views are understood t<> be supported by tho majority of the provisional government A sort of compromise between the two is propoeed by some, who suggest that the present Council of .State shall be invested with oertain legislative functions, and that it shall play the part of an up per Chamber Such are the questions, and the oaly ones re?peoting the form of government whloh are likely to oome before the approaobing assembly. Th? interest excited by these questions has directed much public attention to 'he structure and organization of the republlo of the United States, and at the tlm? I write theee lines, hawkers are orying hiong the Boulevards ' The American Constitution " If in hrtvrinri &1I rlnnhf th&t tha Amnrinftn Annafitufinn will be kept constantly in tbe eye of the Asiembiy in their proceedings to organise tbe new Republic; (till there will be a ve ry great difterence, lor If there b? any thing scaiust which Pari*, at l'aet, 1> determined, it ia te deralism.

Af to the probable composition of the approaching Assembly, we have but few means at prssent of fjrulug any thing like a certain conclusion. Something, however, may be iuferred from a Hat of can clidatfS which has been published by the Centra) Kiectoral Commlttsa of P?ris, which appeared a day or t-vo ago in the jouruali On analysing and c'i?esifvlng it, I And that in point of Intelligence and respectability it ia infinitely lean otjxotionatde than w?a expected Thus, it was feared that inasmuch an the members o( the Assembly will be paid, a Yery large proportlen of them would t e selected frun the operative classis I find, however, that in tbe llat put forth by the demooratlo committee, not more than about six per cent belong to that class, whll* considerably more than one-half are persona of property or of the liberal profassious. Individually considered all the oandidatas recommended, are, of course, repubiioan; and it inav be assumed that all these who will be eleoted, will either be sinoere advooates of a republio, or will, at all events, join in establishing a republic as a madiura ef necessity, and the only raennsof preventing further bloodshed. Tho effect ot the revolution on Paris baa baen of course unfavorable as regards o< ttmerclal interests The ahepkeepers, e*p?clally those at the west end of the town are said to be driven almost to ruin In the Hue de la i'alx. in tho Hue llivoli, and the Rue Faubourg Ste Honor!) and similar quarters, business ia at a stand still The wealthy foreigners are all gone F.ven of the Kngliab, woo had adopted Paris as a permanent plaoe of n sldcnot?, very few remain. The very name of a republic nod the recollection of (he Wrori of the first revolution, have scared th'm away. But ol tbe public establishments those which have been the most injured are tbe theatres, and especially tbe opera. The Kali?n opera wss almost deserted from tbe iJd February, to the day of its close on the .lift March, and it snenis at pre ent very doubtful whether It will be sa ttaavf aaaunn all The grand opers, or the Royal AcaJemy of Muilo, ha* b^en compelled to low**-it* prici* marly on* half, and evenwi'h thi* reduction it ii seldom mora than half filled, 'i ha Oft-ra Comiqut has Bin j suffered.

These, and the entire want ef oonfldenoe In either the means or the ability of tha government, or In both eomblred, added to th? absence of all oredit, and tba loan of fifty millions by the Sauk of Franoe to the government, h.ve tended to reduoe the prices of all securities to a lower point than has been known for many year*, and there appeared to he little immediate prospect or obat.ee cf amelioration The eleetlons, however, of the officers of the National Guards, which were eonsidsred to bo favorable to the oause of orddt, and some more moderate views expressed by the democratic party, tende l somewhat to improve the market Tbis tendency was still further inoreassd by many psrsons who had held bank aotei In their strong box, either tempted by the low prions, or wishing to get rid of their notes leet oome new measure should still further depreciate them, having bought about the middle of the week.

On Saturday they olosed the Threes at 37 60. and the Fives at 54 To-day they are, the Throes 4) 60, and the Fives 01 16.

This ia, indeed, an ?xoell?nt means to bring baek tranquillity and orndlt. It appears that the members of the provisional government ttndlng that their positions are agreeable, Wish to keep them, for they have delayed the national assembly till the 1st of May. Very likely the 400,000 franos given to M. Ledrn Rollln to pay his debts, are not sufficient for him It ia said in our cireles, that Ledrn Rollin and Louis Blana fear that th* members sent by the provinces will not be favorable to them, and that the best plan to adopt would be to have the electors ge to the polls and to vote in their way. It is generally believed that the worst moment of the revolution has net yet oome. The news from the department Is very alarming Everywhere the agriculturists put themselves en greet (idling), and impose their prices on the proprietors; a great many farmers prefer to leave their ground unoni tlvated, rather than submit to the exorbitant demands The compaov of the Frenoh transatlantic steamers, under the care of .VI. Heronlt, is almost entirely mined, and appears to be altogether abandoned by the gev<srnment. who, 1 think, will not have, for a long time hence, the leisure to take care of this affair. The oompany reor ganistd by M Bolsgerard has also burst np, by the failure of its prinoipal moneyed men and stockholders The four steamships, Missouri, Union, Philadelphia, and New York, are laying in the dook of Havre, and theii offlaers are busy in dismantling them, and waiting for the piyment of several months of their salary yet unpaid to them.

Berlin, Sunday, March 10,1949 The Revolution in Prussia?Detailed Jcieunt < f the Incident! from the Commencement lo the End. If you turn to my latter of Deo. 81st, you will find in It the following passage, which it m*y not bs uninteresting to recur to : All ssem to have?a foreboding," I said, "that* serious crisis is ot hand, and that some uiiguir oonvuuion i* aoout to aifturo me lectuiou* tranquillity In whloh tbii quarter of the globe has beta buried tor th* laat thirty yean." Among the oauses that were to lead to saoh a oitaatropfc*, I mentioned " the fevered and nnhealthy condition oI France," and " the uppreued dlMatlafaotlon prevailing throughout Germany. " Yon will admit that there never wa? a prediction more fully or apeedily verified. On the flr?t new* of the wonderful triumph of liberal prlnoiplo* in Franoe, the Frnialan government began to take meaaarei, on the one hand for repelling the anticipated invasion of the Khenlah provineea by the victorious republican*; on the other, for crushing any rnvoiatlonary movement on the part of it* ewn nubjeot*.

For a while the polieo looked on in slleuoe, and an addre<* was J'twu up, petitioning the Klug to grant hi* people tho?e rlghta that bad en so repeatedly prociieed them both by his father and himself. The King refused to receive this petition, und contented himself with Issuing a manifest) in which he expressed hi* intention to call thi Diet together shortly, and to make arrangement* with tho other German power* for abolishing the oeuiorship of the pre** and uhjeotlog it merely to certain restriotlve laws You may easily ImiRine that these conoerslnns wore far from satisfying the people ; another meeting took place, at whloh one of tbe most popular orator*, a Doctor Lowen berg, wai arrested by Ihe police with the assistance of a detaohment ef cavalry, and marohed off to prison. This led to the first serious dlsturbanoea ; on Monday evening several thousand parsons assembled In tho Thiergarton or Park, and on re-entering tbe town were attacked iu the street* by the oulrasniers, two or three of them oui diwn, and quite* number wounded. On Tuesday a si' mllar scene was enacted, and uofortuna ely the suffered were mostly peaoeable Individuals, who were walking quietly home, when they were butohered by the infurU teJ soldiery.

Hia stern domineering oharaoter haj long rendered him an object of disllkr, and It was generally thought that he uaed bi* influenoe over the King to prevent him from aeoeding to the wishes ol hia aubj'oU. On Wednesday, the 15th, the flrat bariloadea were erected, and the flrat shot fired In the Brelte atrasse, a atreet terminating right opposite the royal chateau. 1 waaon the spot at the moment, and saw the orowd scattering In all direotlona at the first jrolley; but they rallied again behind the barricades, which, however, were toe hastily and imperfectly constructed to afford them much shelter. Nevertheless, the troops sustained some lo.=s particularly in a narrow lane oailed the Spree-Uaar.e where the inhabitants received thewi with a shower oi stones and brickbats from the roofs of tho houses, bealdea pouring down hot water upon them from the windo we. Just at this time vogue rumon began to bespread ofarevolution havlr.g broken outln Vienna; the news flew through the city like wild-fire, and increased the general commotion. The Bight, however, paased more quietly than was expected, and the next morning the City Council asseinblod, and resolved upon applying to the Kin); for permission to form a National Ouard Their petition was only partially granted; his M?jesty did not think it advisable to trust his faithful citir.?ns with arms, bat graeiously allowed them to provide themselves with constables' staves, assuring them at the asm* time that he would give orders for the troops not to interfere, unless the efforts of the oitizena to restore peaoe and tranquillity should prove ineffectual. Thla pledge was violated the same dry; a number of atudenta, who had collated near the University, were ebarged by the dragoons, and several of them massacred Kven the more sober and loyal portion of the inhabitants now grew disgusted; every ono felt that it was high time for something to be done On Friday night the Town Counoil had a second meeting, to wbioh many influential citlisns were admitted, and whioh laated till yesterday morning. After a long and stormy debate, they oonoluded upon sending a deputation to the King, representing to him In a respectful, but urgent manner the necessity of yielding to the public voice, as the only way to prevent the mosc disaai trous consequences. Tho oomplete liberty of the precs a popular repreaentatioa, tbe introduction of trial bj I jurv, religious and personal freedom, au amneaty f ir nl political offences, aud the establishment of an armed Na tional Guard, were the ohitf point* insisted upon And finally, a change of ministry waa more thai fainted at; I hia Vlat.afv Kainir infirmail thkt hia r.p?aanf ? !*???ens Alt', not pceseas the confidence of the people. The King re oelved the deputies most graciously.and oompliedut ?nofl with their demanda, part of which, he said, had been anticipated by him that very morning. In fact, an extra of the Ptuttian Oazeltt was published, abolishing lile censorship, convoking tho S.at- s Qeaeral for the -Jd ci April, and containing a string of oihor piotiiscs and concessions toa numerous to meotlon. The deputies. and tho public in g*nort>l, were rather atouishea at this sudden relenting; they never expected him to knook under so completely, and toaubiaicto so woful a oartailmetit of his abtolute authority. It Is true, the Emperor of Austria had just set h'm the example; but Frederick IV alwayx prided himself on his flrranem and decision, while he of Austria is known to be weak almost to idiocy To aooount for bis giving way so s>>on, it was reported that delegate* hr.d arrived from Cologne, stating the intention of the lllienish provlneas to join the French republic, unless a free constitution was immediately proclaimed However that might be, the news was received with universal acclamations, and a vast ooseoursa of people crowded to the palace, to express th?ir gratitude by aboutc and " vivas The King appeared on tho balcony, attended by the I'rlnocof Pros Ma, and was greeted with loud hozzts, while a deputation of respectable citizens, with biaok and white badges Clii Prusiian national colors) round thHr arms, approached tho grand portal of the chateau with an address of thanks to hi* Majesty. It was thsn that a deplorable event took plaoe; A repetition of the one !.hat oocuired a few weeks prevloualy in Paris, and led to the downfall of the Orleans family-an event that obangrd this scene ef tumultuous joy into a wild ebullition of terror and revenge. The deputies were olose to the palaoe, and the orowd was thronging after them, whan suddenly-oome say on a signal from the Prinze, others from the King hlmseif? a detachment of oavalry issued from a side gate, and rushed upon the people, sword in hand The details of this miserable affair are variously related; but it ij curtain that several muskets were flred?whether acsiJentaUy or not will probably never be determined-and In so dense a crowd It is to be presumed that many mutt have been hurt, if not killed besides those rode down by the horse 1 he consequenoea were tremendous. The first stupor of astonishment over, rage and indignation infUmed every breast. " We are betrayed ! We are maj-sicred ! To arms !

The weather, whioh baa baen oold and rainy all the afternoon, has new oleared up again, and it Is aa fine, i though not eo warm, as it waa yesterday.

To-day things wear a more (ratqoil aspeot, although the excitement la not yet subsided. The Polish oonspi1 ratora who had been aenteneed to death, or many yeara , imprisonment, have been aet at liberty, and proceeded en mane to the paiaoe, headed by th? celebrated Mieroslawaki, and attended by a oorpa of armed students, and a num rous concourse of people. They atoppod at tho I portal nf the Schloss, and the King was obliged to appear on the baloony and reeelve their thanks tor au act In ' which he bad probably very little skaro. A more painful i spectacle awaited him: tho bodieaof the citiiins slain in the late conflict were brought into the palaoe yard and deposited in eight of the King and Queen. The number ' of victims ia stated at eUht hundred in all?five hundred soldiers, including a colonel and several olBjeia, and about three hundred of the people. Of ooarae many I more muat have been wounded. It would take a volume to recount all the thrilling 1 events ol the last two days, and to describe the scenes of heioism that were enacted at the diffxrent barricades Tbo troops behaved with iucndlbte ferocity; they flred 1 np into tLe windows, and shot unoffending lookera on, broke into the houses and bayoneted the inhabitant*, and are Raid to have pursued them In some inatanoea to . the upper stor.es and precipitated them from the windows. All the l/aiue is Uld to the Prince of Prussia. Ilia palace was near b?ii g demolished by the Incensed multitude; it has now boeu oonflioated and declarod publlo property. He ia generally thought to have fled to Runsla, and will probably never venture to return to this country. The new ministry is not yet completed. Count Arnim is appointed prime minister, Count Schwerin minister of public instruction, and Averswald of the interior; Beokerath is spoken of for minister of flnanoe, Vincke and Csmpha?aen lor the other departments. They are all popular members of the late Diet, exoept Arnim, who is aristooratlo and conservative, with a slight tinge of liborallsm. Tuesday, March 31. , Last night the whole town was onoe more In an uproar , It was reported that the Prinoe of Prussia bad returned i tne nana or Russian army or 00,000 men, and In 1 spite of the absurdity of suoh a rumor the people flaw to arms, the gat?a were b*rTio?ded, ar.d overy thlrg was in the greatest oonfusion. " We are betrayed," wan again r the ory. " We hare muskets, bnt do amunltion. The 1 King i? deoolvlng us " All assuranoes to the contrary were in valD, until the King himself appeared in the I Bohlots-Plata, and gave his word and honor that the ; alarm wm unfounded, offering at the same time to place 1 his cousin, Prir.oe Adalbert, In tbe handi of the puople as a hostvge for his good faith. This morning he rode 1 oat, acoompanied by several popular leaders, an4 followed by a band of armed oltizanf looking, In fact, mure like a prisoner than a monarch. He addressed tho people two or three times, expressed his confldenoo ia tholr tUelity, and told them that he intended to put himself at the h-ad of the constitutional moTement in Germany, and restore the country to its anolent splendor and pzeemineno* In Kurope I I fear it will hardly be In his power to fulfil this pro1 miso; tho (.art ho has to play Is a most difficult one, ami his present situation forolbly reminds one of that of Louis XVI., after the catastrophe of October, 17bO. The least 1 false step may be fatal to him. To-day a raanifeat" of the Poles wa< placarded, calling upon tho German nation to assist tnem in the restoration of Poland, an event which, ind ed, appeals inevitable under the present circumstances, but which may Involve us ia a war of life and death with the Colossus of the North. Thursday, Mareh 93. Yesterday a most imposing and affeotlng solemnity took plaoe- tbe funeral of the citizens who fell during the late struggle. Tho prooesslon moved along the Linden, in front of the palaoe, where the King was standing, bare beaded, to see it paas, and thiough the Kiinlgs strait# to a kind of park, called Frederick's Grove, which had been selected for the place of burial. An lmmensn orowd bad assembled to witness the ceremony-men, women ami ohtldren, most of them in black, or with orape round their hits and bonnets, and all with staid and serious cou atensnoea. Apprehensions had been felt that new disturbanoea would break out on this oooaslon; bnt not a murmur ?aa beard, and every thing went off with t ie greatest order and tranquillity, in former times an immense display of military foroe would have been considered indispensable to keep order in suob a orowd?now, neither soldiers nor poliosmen were to be seen, and It appeared evident that their presence was no more requisite than It waa desirable. This augurs wsli for the future. Amongst the coffins I noticed that of a ohild of twolve yeers 01 ?g?, wno wm snot at one of the barrioadee Moat of thu killed ware young men?students, mechanios and merchants' olerkt.

The latter bad rendered themselves too obnoxious for this to bs done with safety, and 1 has now been concluded upon for them te be interred as privately as possible, at thi opposite extremity of tho city. Thus a new epoch has begun tor Prussia Her old institutions have either baen overthrown, or are tottering to their fall, und it is difficult to say what further changes may be in etere for h?r Meanwhile th? Diet, or National Parliament, will meet k*re on the i I ot n?xt mouth, and on the proceedings or that assembly depend in a great measure the future destinies of the country. A. B.
