Paris Thousands of travellers on foot only pass through this central arch daily, aud there they read the names of the immortal men whose deeds have immortalized the age ill which they lived ; and upon the facades, as they enter and leave, they may read the names of the places made memorable by French valur. Under this arrli. up.in the cstrade. raised many feet high, sat the wives ot the members ofthe government, aud such others as were fortunate enough to receive a card ; in front and upnn each side, in front of the btc sat the officers of the government, of the courts, aome of whom were dressed in red robes : u gn*at number of generals among whom were Oudinot and Lamoriciere. the invalids who were not under arms, the delegates of the clubs, the wounded of February. 1848. delegates from the schools and Luxemburg, sic.?directly in front of all sat the provisional government, who arrived just before ten o'clock The colonels assembled in front, aud Aragoprocounced a short discourse, and the government delivered to each an elegantly wrought flag, for his regiment, which on receiving he swore to defend, amid the discharge of cannon, the cheers of spectators, aud the cries of fire la KrjinbHc "fitr U ftorrmmtnl Proviiiore." At half-past ten the troops commenced filing before the government, presenting their arms as they passed, crying, as before, and receiving in return the salutations of its members This mass of 4(H) 000 troops were till half-past ten o'clock ut 1 night in filing before the government?the column I i being continually under march, and till"d at the Uastile.

Paris t has a population of twelve or thirteen hundred thou- a sand, and how many there were from the surround- r ing hanlitus and villages present, no one can de- r tcrmine. But there were enough to prove that a great b> many people live in and about Paris.

Lamartine is a messenger of peace; and the demonstration of yesterday proves how strongly he exists in 1 the estimation of the people: he was cheered, by name, wherever he moved, but no other member of the government was thus honored. His principles the people have adopted, and all the attempts to curtail his power. i and diminish the effect of his influence, have met with j the most prompt aud overwhelming rebuke. In the evening, the illuminations were exceedingly 1 beautiful: and Paris was one grand drawing room of vast dimensions, aud a variety of company, sparkling with wit and wine.

April 26,1848. J The Electionj?Xational *1tttmhly?Division in the Provitionul Government?Struggle for Powei?A'ew Constitution?The English?Italy. 4'c. The elections hare engrossed much of the public at- i tention for the lagt few days. and they terminated last 1 night, at 12 o'clock, having commenced on the , morning of the 2.1d: but the result is not expectod to be known until the 28th. The number of votes polled will not compare with that in the United States. 1 think, compared with the population. [Here our correspondent makes a mistake, but ho corrects it afterwards ] The people are not yet accustomed to this quiet mode of obtaining pawer ; and therefore do not use the privilege they have fought for, so generally as an American would naturally expect. Tothose who have seen governments overthrown and others established, over barricades and blood, it must seem awkward to attempt the saino thiug by the simple deposit of a bit of paper. The made of t electioneering w.i? unique: bay* and women, in the ' streets, had papers to sell, and votes accompanied them: then, agaiu. there were young men. with large _ packages of votes, passing along tho streets, giving them to every person they met. There was no multitude? no struggle ?no excitement?no bringing out voters?no persuading of voters; and a stranger in l'aris would not have known that it was a public day. or that any thing unusual was taking place. It requires time to comprehend and realize that the.-e bits of paper make and unmake administrations and governments. and that they areas effectual as barricades and bayonets for that purpose, \gain. the people ar.1 not yet divided into political parties, and they have no means of concenrating public opinion upon candidate-: hence, the streets are full of different lists of names for tiiu members of the National Assembly; and as thirtyfour ar* cantaiued upon one piece of paper, it creates hesitation in the selection. But I immediately perceived, by an examination of the e cerallisl-.th.it there wa; a master spirit behind the neeuc. who had prepared a great number of lists with care, and for tii purpose of defeating the elcctim of Lamartine. and those of the provisional government who go with him. and of securing that of Lcdru Rollin. and the three other members of the government who go with him ; and they have been prepare I w.th great skill fur that purpose The lists, with l.amartiue at their head, generally embrace the entire provisional government, so that there appears to me little d >ubt that Lcdru llollin Louis lilanc.

The storm which has been so louggathering, has burst at last, and overwhelmed In its fury the odious oppressors of this brave and generous people. The downfall of Metternioh?the hoary old reynard who for thirty years had trampled upon their destinies ?gave the tirst signal, which aroused the whole couutry a< one man. aud nerved it for a powerful and universal resistance. It was on the evening of the 19th March that the intelligence from Vlcnnu llrst reached the shores of Italy, that his gracious Majesty had deigned most generously (after a revolution) to grant to his beloved subjects a constitution"; and no one. who was not in their midst, can possibly figure to himself the mingled expressions of rage, indignation and diigust with which this imperial uuuouucemeut was welcomed by the Venetians. We will not accept it" ? Wo a?k no favors from the accursed Austrian*"? Dowu with the wretches"?" Drive them out of the country"?such were the cries and such the immutable determination of the entire population. The following day all business was suspended, and. with one accord, all shops wore closed; and the people, resolved to be free, rushed en maist upon the square of St. Mark, vowing to sacrifice their lives or tinish at once with their abhorred oppressors. The authorities were struck dumb with astonishment at this menacing attitude of tho hitherto peaceable Venetians; aud attempted to awe them by an insulting display of bristling bayonets. But this expedient of iuspiriug them with salutary terror, singularly lulled in its effect, aud served only to exasperate, to u still greater degree, the maddeued crowd, being, from their aquatic position, (in this respect different from all othur cities) totally destitute of arms, resistance seemed more than folly; but the enraged populace tore up the pavement t>f the l'lace St. Marc, with Herculean force broke the stones to pieces, and pelted their blond adversaries with unremitted vigor. Several discharges of musketry folInw.ui this IllAil iLtinoU- no.I ftu.. >. ..II? fi.ll llr..l...? many wounded. iu the middle of the square. The infuriated people cried aloud far anus, to revenge the assassination of their comrades; and the irritation euutinued increasing to the most fearful point. The civil governor. Count I'ullTy. seeing the total impossibility of restraining the popular movement, summoned the municipal council, and gave permission to establish instantly u National Guard, with the hope of preserving the public truuquillity. The sight of their fellow citizens, with white scarfs around their waists and sabres by their sides, produced the most instantaneous and salutary effect; but the civic guard themselves. having now procured several hundred muskets, were not less inclined than the mass, to evacuate the city of their odious masters. The day following, ati attack was made upon the far-famed arsenal; which, after the death of Colonel Marinovitch. the officer in command, was yielded without a struggle. From that moment the victory was no longer doubtful. The immense quautity of arms contained iu that well known repository, were distributed to the people, who. with a baud of music preceding them, inarched in triumph to the square of St. .Marc. The Count 1'aliTy. and the military commander of the city. General Zichy. beheld this imposing spectacle from their palace windows; and terrified at the menacing attitude of the victorious crowd, they iustautly signed a capitulation, declaring that all the imperial troops, amouuting to five thousaud. should be instantly sent back towards Vienna; and furthermore, that the civil and military government of Austria in Venice had ' ceased to exist!" The effect which this astouudiug intelligence produced upon the population. 1 leave you to imagine. At this juncture, a jurist of tuucli distinction, named Daniel Manin. (who for the last three months had been imprisoned by the government for demanding certain reforms, and who was now liberated by the people) appeared upon the Piacc St. Marc, bjrne upon the shoulders of the crowd; and having demanded silence, declared, that as the Austrian government no longer existed" among them he deemc l it advisable, in the name of the sovereign people, to proclaim that "Venice waj again a republic!" The popular enthusiasm here reached its acme. Long and prolonged cries of Viva San Marco. Viva la lie pub lie a. Vita Man in. rent the air. and aunouueed to the astonished Austrian* that their domination over these hallowed lagunes was forever at an end. So it was, that from the vilest and most odious oppression, the brave Venetians founu themselves suddenly in the enjoyment of the greatest of human bleasiuga. having obtained their political diseuthraiment solely by the awe with which their moral attitude inspired their oppressors, without having to shed one drop of their blood The republic having been proclaimed, joy and gladness beaming upon every countenance, a dense mass proceeded towards the American consulate, to testify their admiration for our government. Assembled beneath the windows, re-ileratcd and prolonged cries of "Long live the United States of America.'' Long live our sister republic."' arose from the joyous crowd, and these demonstrations increased tenfold when the con sul. accompanied by several of the national guard, appeared in their midst, bearing in one hand the (tag of the U nion. and in tbe other the tricolor with the winged lion, as an emblem of the fraternity which should ever exist between the two governments, based on they now were upon the same just and eternal principles. In responding to this outburst of a people's sympathy. Mr. Sparks thanked them for the kiud feelings they manifested for the government he had the honor to represent among tlieui. for the esteem they exhibited for him personally, and expresseda hope that, by their dignified and tranquil demeanor, they ini^bt give proofs to the world that they were capable of governing themselves, and that they comprehended the full import of the important stop they had taken. He assured them, in advance that when the intelligence had traversed the Atlantic, that the ancient queen of the Adriatic had thrown off the yoke of the stranger, and again proclaimed herself a republic, there would be one simultaneous outburst of joy from one extremity of the Union to the other. Jle wished them prosperity and happiness, and trusted they would never dement their capability of enjoying the blessings of free and enlightened institutions. Thcso words were received with immense satisfaction, and the crowd then quietly withdrew, giving vent to their joy iti prolonged cleats to the consul and to the American republic. The day following, tha imposing ceremony of consecrating the trioolorcd banner, by the patriarch of Ven.ce. took place in front of the church cf St. Mark. The Hrencli consul b'ing absent, ours was the only one of the corps who received an invitation to assist at this interesting spectacle. After tlie benediction, the national guard on service, amounting to between two and three thousand, were ordered to form into two lines, leaving a vacant space of forty feet in breadth, and extending from one extremity of the Place to the other. The geueral-iu-chief then gave the word of command %'tttenlion ! Honor, to the. Jlag oj the United Statu of . Iinrrica !?and in a moment, the entire body presented arms, and the dense mass of spectators burst forth in the most deafening shouts of applause, with cries ol Long live our sisier republic !" ilerc followed an interesting and moving spectacle. The people, of all olnsfos aud oond lions, soldiers and civilians, threw hemselves in the anus of the consul, embraced him. and kissing the star-spangled banner," pressed it to I heir heart- while many, with moistened eyes, reaching their hands through the dense crowd merely to touch it. coiddjunt but articulate, " J'iira it console !?viva gli Stati Uniti I!?viva la gran repuhlica !! r1 Had I not been an eye-witness of this touching scene, never could I have imagined so thrilling a proof of the great respect mid almost adoration with which our nation is regarded by this generous and noble-hearted people. In the evening, the theatre of the Venice was brilliantly illuminated a giorno, and tilled to overflowing, but only with Italian Iwauty and fashion, for by this time all the Austrian society had vanished, like the baseless iimnc mi a urenni. our 11:1 l:mii was again iiesitucil to receive, there. h continuation of thosaine spontaneous and fervent ovations ; fur no sooner had Mr. Sparks and his lady entered their Inge, than they w re greeted with the most enthusiastic ami prolonged applause, with repeated eric of "Long live the American repuhlic !"

The contents of their arsenal, consulting of many thousand* of excellent muskets, tield pieces, and every material of war in the greatest quantity, wore immediately expedited and distributed throughout all tho provinces. At this moment the whole country la up in arms as one man. and the poor, half starved, demoralised army of Metiernich. of which there are about 60,000 shut up in the two fortresses of Verona and Mantua, have the bitter alternative before them of either capitulating with disgrace, or being literally cut to mince meat in their attempt to retreat. The King of Sardiuia is advancing, in person, at the head of a formidable army of 00,000 well disciplined troops. Home. Naples and Tuscuuy are sending thousands of picked young men; and from every portion of tho Lombardo Veneto, hordes of "crusaders " are rushing on towards Verona,all buoyant with animation, and each one cheered with the hope of being able to exclaim?-' I have killed an Austrian ! ? A joyous band of 600 of theso "crusaders" left Venice, this day, for the seat of the war, by way of Padua and Vicensa. At 10 o'clock they assembled on the Square of St. Marc, and after a review, entered the dome of their patron saint to receive tho parting benediction of their beloved Patriarch. Each one wore a black felt hat. a iHtmani, with a long black plume, and a white scarf across the breast, on which was worked a red cross.

R. F. B. Our PraMlan Correspondence. Bkrlin, April 24,1848. Jlffairs til Prussia?The Prospect of a General War on the Continent?Split between the Bourgeoise and Working Classes in Berlin, 4*r., 4*c., 4"cThe events of the IStb and 10th of March have proved that it was easy enough to overturu the Prussian system of military absolutism, but every day that has elapsed since then, shows how difficult It is to get clear of its ruins. The Prussian monarchy was like the whitened sepulchre described in scripture, outwardly fair and goodly to look on, but rotten and corrupt within. The hidden sores that had festered in obscurity for the last thirty years, are uow brought forth to public view, and the nation stands aghast at the discovery, lustead of a well-filled treasury, an enlightened government, au efficient army, and a united people, we find the finances in u state of complete dilapidation, weakness and disorder in every branch of the administration, the troops mutinous and demoralized, and the different provinces, nay, even the various classes of citUens. rising in open arms against the authorities and against each other. It is now more than a month since the revolution, and yet the country is far from being tranquilized: it rontiniiAH. in fiict. in a. Ntat.it horflwrinir unon Aimrnnv The Diet met ou the 2d April, anil was dissolved again on the loth, after giving its adhesion to the convoking of a National Convention, and passing a vote of confidence in tho new ministry. As 1 predicted in my loot, Count Arnim had been already displaced to make room for Camphauson. a banker of Cologne and one of the most popular men in the country, aqd the King had retired to Potsdam, leaving the new Premier to settle ever^r thing his own way. Whether the task is above his powers, or whether there are any underhand influences at work. I will not pretend to say; at any rate. up to the present time, his success has not equalled even tho most reasonable anticipations. Although a new man. he proceeds on the old Prussian system of silencc and sccresy, and no one appears to know what he it really about. Perhaps ho means to burst upon the astonished world with some wonderful and unexpected stroke of genius; if so, it is high time to set about it. before the tremendous "too late''is sounded into his cars, as it was into those of his master. Most of all, a loan is wanted for at present the exchequer is as empty a? a beggar's wallet; and money being the tiervui rerum, the last act of the defunct Diet was authorizing the ministry to raise forty millions ol ihalers --with all convenient speed" ; but the question in. where are they to come from? All the great Makers are half ruined, the little ones quite, the whole trading community is panic-stricken, funds have gone down like the thermometer at Christmas, railroad shares are uo better than so much waste paper?in a word. chao> is come again, and poace and plenty are winging their way across the Atlantic. En attendant, the Danes and the Germans have come to loggerheads in llolstein, the Poles and Prussians ditto in I'oanania. u black cloud is gathering on tho Western frontier, the Emperor of Russia is concentrating his hosts of Cossacks on the banks of the Vistula, all Europe is at sixes and sevens, and the people are beginning to get impatient, and to ask, what uext? Unless all the signs in the political horizon are deceptive. we are on the eve of a great and sanguinary struggle?a war of extermination, more destructive than any since the time of Attila. As yet. hostilities have only commenced on the Elder and in Lombardy. but so much combustible matter has accumulated throughout Europe, that a mere spark will be sufficient to produce an explosion. A strong democratic spirit prevails in the South of Germany; in fact, a German republic was proclaimed only the other day in the duchy of Baden; and whether this manifestation succeeds or not, it is likely to afford the French that pretext for interfering which they have long been anxiously looking forward to. in order to re-possoss themselves of the provinces torn from them by the treaties of 1814 aud 181V In tho East. Prussia is impelled by collision in that quarter 1b inevitable.ami whatever the issue may be.a new state of things must bo the final reHilt. You will recollect Napoleon's prophecy, that In fifty years Europe would be either republlcau or CosMck; thin question is on the point of being decided, and ths West will again meet the North in mortal conflict. If the Oermans are defeated, tin inroad of the Muscovites will be the consequence; the French will come to the assistance of their neighbors, and what between friends and enemies the whole country will be turned into a field of battle; if successful, the restoration of Poland must follow; but the inherent antipathy of the Slavonic rare to the Teuton is such, that it is doubtful whether Germany will reap much benefit from the change. It is even to be feared that the Poles and Russians may settle their differences amicably, and then turn their united strength against the Germans, who are more obnoxious to both those nations than they are to each other. This is an awkward dilemma to be placed ill. and a sort of instinctive presentiment that such would be the result of a war has probably contributed more than any other circumstance to prevent It from brenking out ere now. For the moment, a hollow truce prevails; but the sword is half unsheathed and ready to leap from the scabbard at a minute's notice. The split between the bourgeoisie and the working classes, which has been developed by the late revolution iu France, is no less perceptible in these parts, though not to quite so alarming an extent The lower orders, who have had all the fighting, are determined not to be choused out of the spoils of victory. Popular meetings are held almost every day; processions of operatives are seen marching through the streots In threatening array, and a more equitable remuneration of labor is insisted on. and in some casns enforced by open violence. All these proceedings are viewed with the utmost anxiety by those who have property at stake, and the fear and distrust they display only tend to exasperate the people and to widen the breach between them. t&Thc elections will tako place in the first week of May. and on the 22d of the same month the National Assembly is expected to meet. It will be the task of that body to frame a constitution for Prussia on those broad and liberal foundations that are required by the exigencies of the times, and to adopt such measures as may enable her to ride out tho tempest that assails her on all sides.

(From the Liverpool Albion.] On Saturday afternoon the new steamship United States, under the command of Caj>t. Hack staff, arrived at Liverpool, from New York, after a successful trip across the Atlantic of thirteen days and fifteen hours. The interest of the spectators was particularly excited by the fact that she is the first American steamer, propelled by paddle-wheels, that has entered the Mersey. As she steamed .-teadily up the river, which wub almost calm, her large form was seen to advantage. She displayed at the head of the foremast the British ensign, and on the |>eak of the mizen the American ensign.? The United States is a fine looking vessel, the hull being formed more after the style of the New York packet ships than the model adopted in the construction of British steamers. She is built very full both fore and aft, which gives the vessel great length of flooring and increased buoyancy. She has a neat billet-head, richly gilded, and a round stern, which is arched with elegantly carved work, also gilded, on a white ground. She has three musts, bar* rigged. * * * * * * Besides stowage for 860 tons of coal, there is room lor 800 to 1000 tons of freight. She has ample accommo dation for 100 cabin passengers. The saloon is w feet long, and fitted up with two rows of dining tables. Ncwtpaper Postage In Knglniirt. It was sonic time since reported in the papers, and afterwards contradicted, that newspapers, by having a penny stamp 011 them, may contain any remarks or writing 011 the paper of the newspaper, without further charge. We nave the best authority for saying, that newspapers may go to any part of the country, if written all over, provided they have a jwnriy stamp on them. Important from France. _ After the extraordinary excitement in the Parisian capital, incidental to the prodigious display of troops and National Guards which took place last week, our neighbors have subsided into a calm.? Not fewer than 40,000 armed men assisted at the recent great spectacle of national fraternization ; and this demonstration and the introduction of a considerable body of troops of the line into the capital, have concurred in maintaining tranquillity. The provisional government did not fail to seize this grand opportunity once more, by means of a public proclamation addressed to the people, to the National Guards, and to the army, to enforce its opinions. It declared that " order was guarantied ; the security and independence of the national representation secured j" and gave the assurance that " family and property are sacred; industry is free; credit revives; specie, buried by distrust, re-appears ; labor, the property of the ope rauve, is created oy government, suitouiiucu uy institutions protective of the rights of the poorest and the weakest. Fraternity will not be a mere ceremony; it will be the law." IIow far these declarations are in accordance with the passing occurrences, our readers can determine. On Sunday the great event of the elections immediately followed the spectacle of the Thursday previous; and fortunately all the apprehensions entertained of great disturbances during the progress of this formality have been falsified. The voters have performed their duties in Paris without any interruption of the public neace; indeed, the quietness which prevails, anu the paucity of actual voters, compared with the number of real electors, would argue an indifference of public spirit, ratherthan any vehement degree of patriotism,one way or the other. As the returns would ouly be complete on Friday, in Paris, we shall have scarcely time to form a deliberate opinion of the general result of this election, upon which depends the future happiness of France and the general peace of the world. In the meantime, great complaints are made of tho open bribery and corruption inseparable front universal suffrage. Stringent endeavors have been made by the authorities to prevent an abuse of the elective franchise: but a* many voters have each procured, with apparent facility, no fewer than seven or eight tickets, entitling them to vote as many times, and as the provisional government is charged with using secretly undue influence through the army, and Louis Blanc and Albert, through their pensioned ouvriers unemployed, the purity of election is not altogether immaculate or free from suspicion. The provisional government continues its most extraordinary system of arbitrary decrees. Notwithstanding its first pledge. u that no system of taxes should be imposed by the provisional government; that it belonged to the national delegates to decide this point, and that an opposite conduct on its part would imply the boldost usurpation?in spite of this, a decree has been issued, abolishing the tax on salt, which is to tako effect on the 1st January next, uiany months after the Natloual Assembly shall have met together. In lieu of this unquestionably obnoxious and mischievous impost, tbey have imposed a tax on tho rent of apartment*, fee., and also a tax of one per cent on all mortgage moneys, whether on funds or on the land, either held in trust, or waiting the judgment of the law eourts. Beides this serious income tax aimed to be levied on property, the provisional government seems resolved to put it out of the power of their successors, whoever they may be. to restore matters to the ante i/uo in any department. The judges have been removed from their offices, undor the pn-tence of tlieir having administered the law slncc 1830 with a monarchical bins incompatible with republican views. Tho provisional government has also passed a decree definitely abolishing slavery in all the colonies and possessions of the French republic The decree is to take effect two months after its publication in tho colonios. An indemnity is to be granted to the slave owners, the amouut and form of which is to be fixed by the National Assembly. All traffic In slaves is to be interdicted between proprietors from the date of the publication of the decree, and measures to be taken to prevent the introduction of free laborers from Senegal, as at present contemplated by England from tho western coast of Africa. Now. with these decrees issuing daily, one after tho other, scarcely leaving us breathing time to discuss the merits or demerit* of any one of them, wo cannot but ask ourselves, by whnt authority the provisional government ventures upon such swooping changes ; and whether such arbitrary ordinances are in accordance with uny principle of representative government, and with their own declared principles of action ? The provisional government seem apparently resolved, coute qui eoute, to pass certain decrees, so as to render re-action a work of utter impossibility. As we anticipated, the railways in actual work throughout France have been appropriated by the State, and the owners of the shares arc to be reimbursed in Ave per cent stock, valued at the average price of the lost six months, the shares being nppraitii'd upon the same principle. Tho unfinished liues will no doubt be seized upon also, but the terms of indemnification will be different, owing to the unequal position of the funds and property of tho respective companies. By our latest accounts it would appear that the provisional government has come to tho wise determination to disperse the German bands of marauders who are hovering on the Rhenish frontiers. Tho alleged reason Is. "because of Its liability to cause unoa?iness to the German States and to commit the republic in war with its neighbors." If tho provisional government will persevere in this policy for France, she may yet be saved. As far as we can collect from the confused accounts we receive of tho elections throughout France, attended as they have been with tho most wholesale bribery and corruption, and even violence, we think the new Assembly will bo decidedly republican. but rather of a moderate than of an ultra character. Lamartino appears to have received the unanimous vote of all parties. Dupont de l'Kure, Marrust, Arago. Marie. Gamier Pages. Bothmont. Carnot. and Cremieiix. rank after him. MM. Cormcnln. Bora tiger, (the poet) Lammenais. come next. Albert stands 25tli on the list of tho second arrondissement. MM. LedruRollin. Flocon. and Louis Ulanc are much lower in the list, but their return is said to be ccrtain. Odillon Harrot, 1,'Horbetto. Vavin, and Quouittc. son of the conventionalist, liavo been elected in the department of the Aisne. Ail the coal-porters, boatmen, kc., in Paris, voted for Prince Louis Nap*loon. The French army now comprises 537.000 men. and has greatly Increased since the revolution. In the provinces great discontent provails. and the sciiemes of the ultras to overthrow tho government still causod apprehension in Paris. A plot to blow up tho Hotel de Vllle. and to make the republic more democratic than is meditated by the provisional government, has been detected, and a judicial Inquiry is now in progress into the alleged conspiracy, which. It is said, will compromise some parsons in high station. The National Guards would doubtless preserve order, should any such horrible schemes bo anticipated. Till: t,ATKWT lNTf:i,UOEN< K. The Paris papers of the 2?th nit., confirm our previous report that, the eight moderate members of the provisional government will bo at the top of the list of the thirty-four deputies elected for Paris, while the four members of a more violent tendency, will bo nearly at the bottom of It. The elections In the departments were, on the whole, of a similar character. n'l...... r.,.,. .,,.,,,...1 ,..i f..?fi it,,.i ih? niir. i?n? n..kh. .v..... i?i?

The War In Denmark* The Schleswie territory ha* been the poene of trwther notion between the Dane* and the Free Corps.

About H()0 men iu all were engaged 111 the action, bUj)j>ort .'d by u Miiali body ot cavalry and a couple of held piece*. The regular troops of the Confederation, Prussian and llanoverian, do not appear t? have been engaged in this affair, which appears to have been piovoked by the rash, undisciplined courage of the raw volunteers from various parts of Uermany, who, accordingly, have sutlered a defeat. The Danes, as we expected, have exercised their rights as belligerents^ and have laid an embargo on all I'russian, aiecKienourg, unu uanovenan ?-nipa in the port of Copenhagen. The vesseIs of Hamburgh and Lubeck are only respected so long as they abstain from joining in any attack on Denmark. The inconsiderate students of Germany, who have been taken prisoners by the Danes, ar.* now expiating their folly in cold and hunger 011 board a Danish man-of-war in the harbor of Copenhagen. The order for the advance of the Prussian troops, which had been snspended, was expected at Kiel on the 21st, to be carried into execution in a few days. The Prussian consulates have issued notices, warning all vessels ol that Hug of the danger which they incur by proceeding to the North Sees. Unauthentic rumors have been circulated in London ot an adjustment of the dispute, and the Germans complain of the barbarous mode of warfare adopted by the panes in stopping commerce; but they forget their own unjustifiable commencement of the war. Chevalier Bunsen, the Prussian Envoy in London, and Mr. Orla Lehman, who represents his Danish Majesty, have exchanged a not over civil correspondence. The disposition of Russia in the quarrel still remains a profound mystery. It is probable that she is waiting until the navigation is open, when she may support her views by corresponding vigor. Altona, Monday, April 24?Noon. Tho train from Rendsburg has brought Intelligence of tUe taking of the town of Schleawig by the troopa of the Confederation, alter an engagement which lasted from 3 o'clock in the afternoou of Kaster Sunday. until lllo'clock at night. The fortification called the Dannevirk, on which the Danish artillery was placed, won taken by the Prussians at the point of the bayonet, after the battery had been silenced by thu field pieces of tho llannoTerian contingent. Schleswig then fell into the hand* of the Confederation. The conflict wan a bloody one. the Dane* haying a strong position, and doing great execution with their artillery and riUoineu before it was carried. The Danes had from 10,000 to 12,000 men; the foroe of the Confederation was the greatest, but it was not all engaged; four Prussian regiments of the truard and line formed the bulk of the attacking army. The loan of the Prussian!), so far an can be gathered from the unathenticatud accounts, is about 300 men killed and wounded, principally of the 2d and 20th regiments. LTp to Monday morning 116 wounded had been brought into the Rendsburg hospital. That of the Danes U not yet known, but probably, from having fought comparatively under cover, it is not so great. That the Danes fought well Is freely acknowledged; they retire I fighting from point to point, and held out till the last. One of those accidents that confound the best calculations rendered the mines, which had been relied on as one of the means of defence, useless. The waters of the Schlci, an inlet of the sea rather than a river, at the head of which Schleswig la built, rose to an unusual height. In consequence of a continued east wind, and enterid the excavations. The fortified work or dam called the.Dannerirk was the main defence of the Danes, and w^en this was carried, the fight seems to have been for some time a battle of artillery, in which the houses of the suburbs were muoh injured, and several set on fire. Hamburgh, Monday, April 24?10 P. M. A telegraphic despatch, just roceived at Altona. announces the entry of the German troops into Flensburg, on which town they advanced, after taking possession of Schleswig, without opposition. Aiiatrin. In Vienna tranquillity prevailed; exertions were in progress to reinforce the army in Lombardy: but the various distant provinces of Austria were all in a state of considerable excitement. The Bank of Vienna decided, on the 21stt to send off one million of florins (?100,000) to Linz, another to Brunn, a third to Open, and a fourth to Prague, for the assistance of commerce, and especially the manufacturing districts, the stoppage of the manufactories having deprived thousands of workmen of subsistence. Prussia. In Prussia public attention is absorbed in the Schleswig-Holstein war, and the approaching elections were not expected to pass off peaceably. Switzerland. Advices from Berne to the 17th have been received. The Diet had a secret sitting on the 14th, upon the demand of the Kina of Sardinia^that the Swiss confederation should march 30,000 men into Lombardy, and keep a reserve of 20,000 on the frontier. A committee was appointed on this, whose report was expected to be presented on the 17th. At the date of the last accounts this report had not been presented. The -War In Italy. In Lombardy the scene of war has not materially changed during the week. The army of Charles Albert, after having been repulsed before Pescbiera, which up to the last accounts had not been taken, continues to maintain its position on the banks ot the Mincio, the king s head quarters being at Volta; the main body of the troops continue on the right bank of the river. There is evidently a nuuse in the courage of Charles Albert. The Milan Gaztttt, not a bad authority on such a point, although very little to be relied upon respecting the real incidents of the war, hints now that the Mincio is the limit separating Lombardy from the Venitian provinces, and that having driven the Austrians out of Lombardy, the mission ot the Sardinian envoy, and of the king, would terminate when Peschiera and Mantua have fallen. On the 19th an attempt was made to surprise the advanced posts of the latter fortress. The king advanced to the ditches, but the garrison kept itself rigorously within the walls, and four men of the % beseigers were killed. On the following day, the bulletin goes on to say, the head quarters will be changed to Volta, "probably to commence a new attempt on the Mincio." By the official accounts from Kadetsky, through Vienna, to the 15th, his position was unaltered; and he seemed little to apprehend any success of the Piedmontese against Peschiera. He assures the minister of war, that as soon as the corps stationed at Isonzo shall have joined him, he would resume operations; indeed, a letter of the 19th. from Pontafel. states that the corps reached Palma Nuova on tne 18th. On that day skirmishes had taken place, in which the Austrians were victorious?taking possession of Prevano, Valvasane, and Codroips. Reinforcements were coming down the passes towards Udine, and the steamers of the Austrian Lloyds are armed, and placed at the disposal of Count Nugent. The fortunes of Charles Albert appear to have received a check, which only an effort of great courage can repair. Inactivity will be almost as fatal to his army as a defeat. It is a critical moment for his fame. Tho news of the intention of the King of Sardinia to abandon the war of independence. riither than consent to tho establishment of n republic in Lombardy. in confirmed. A dispatch arrived at Milan on the 20th, from tho headquarters of the Piedmontese army, bringing tho new* of an attack, directed by the King of Sardinia in person, against tho Austrians stationed in the neighborhood of Mantua. The Duke of Savoy (tho hoirapparont to the Sardinian throne) was also present at this afTair. After a very warm engagement, and In which tho Piedmont troop* displayed the greatest j courage and bravery, tho Austrians were obliged to re- ' tire, and shut themselves up in the fortress. Another attack was to be made on the fortress of Peschiera. The Piedmont army, in order the better to secure the whole line of the .Mincio. are busily engaged in fortifying tho bridges of Ooito, Valegglo, Moyambano. fcc. An engagement has likewise taken place between the Italian corps of General Xucchi and tho Austrian* at Visco. a village situated on the frontiers of Illyria. The contest lasted four hours, but ultimately, though not without ureal difficulty, the Italian* succeeded in training p >n?o*nion ?f tlir village. Terrible Sctiim In linden.

They refused to listen to his counsels, and, ns he retired, he was treacherously shot at, and mortally wound d by three balls. The troops, exasperated to see their chief thus basely slaughtered, fell upon the inoirgcnfs, completely routed them, leaving a great number of dead upon the field. 1 hi' troops kept up ihe pursuit, and encountered another nartv, headed t?y Struvc, which they nlso nltacked and routed, when night came on nnd put a stop to the engagemeat.
