[Krom the Paris Journal Jos Debats ] What a duy ! What a terrible (lay, full of sorrow, but also l'ul of grandeur ! Let us uot, however, lone confidence. Liberty received for a moment a frightful wound which oue might have believed mortal; but th<i liaud of the people, of the veritable people, was immediately placed ou the wound?it slopped the blood which was Homing?aud la-t evening, liberty was saved, and France is still mistressot herself. A frightful crime has been committed We saw the body of the National i Legislature invaded by ins rgent bauds; we saw terror ) and its abominable Hag dominant in the midst of naked j sword', aud of a tempest of savage cries. But let us hasten to say that the crime Immediately called down j the chastisement; that it drew forth from every street, i every house, every pavement, aud every breast In our I great city a universal and irresistible cry of execration | and justice. In an instant the whole town was covered I with legiou*,armed fororder and liberty,transported with ardent enthusiasm and legitimate anger; and anarchy, which raised its hideous head foruu hour, was humbled to the dust. Some moments after having been expulsed by a sacrilegious invasion, the Assembly created by the universal sulfrage of the people resumed its deliberations under the protection of the National Guard. and again seisied, with a stronger hand than ever, the liberty which had just b?en torn to shreds. Let France be reassured; let all France rely ou Paris; uud at the same time that she will hear of the criminal attempt committed agsinst her representatives, she will learn the striking reparation which was obtained for it; and let her declare, as the Constituent Assembly has done by acclamation, that the National Guard of Paris has merited well of the country. [From the Paris Union ] The day which has just past will be recorded in the history of our revolution. During more than three hours, anarchy reared its head; during more than three hours, the intyesty of the nation was violated and insulted in the persons of its representatives. A band of factious men breke into the National Assembly ; masses, blinded, deceived, and exasperated by culpable tribuues, violated that pale, in deliance of the protection it ou^ht to have received from respect for the laws and the sacred title of thoso whom It Inclosed. This is more than a great scandal, it is a crimo of LczeNation. which God has permitted us to witness. But the genius of France was awakened. Good citiiens marcneu to me succor 01 uieir uieuaceu country. utM hundred anil fifty thousand citizens camo band in hand to support this common weal, and victory remained with the cause of order. Thanks be rendered to the National Ouard! It has saved I'aris and France from the horrors of anarchy, and has deserved well of its country, and a page in her history. [From the Paris ITnivers J We write in naste, quite agitated with the great and tcrriblo scenes which have passed before our oyes. We have seen the National Assembly delivered up by treasou, invaded, violated, and dispersed, and an hour after order re-established in its power and sovereignty by the spontaneous co-operation of the citizens. The National Guard of I'aris has not only saved the republic, but has saved civilization, which was at one moment iu the power of the barbarians. The represcutatives ?f the people were worthy of their uiissiou. The emeute kept them during three hours under the roup of its violence. It could not wrest from them a vote, nor even a sign of sympathy. They only replied by the majesty of their silence to the threats of which they were the object. Victorious, they will know how, we doubt not, to give to their outraged dignity the satisfaction it demands, and which the interest of the country exacts, without making liberty expiate the crime of factions. The guilty are In the hands of the National Assembly?it will punish them?it will punish all. for they have committed the greatest of crimes ; their ti iuinpti would have been the signal for civil war in Paris, and in all France, but it will only punish them. It is not a hope that we express here?it is a profound conviction. The National Guard and the Assembly had only one cry? five la tlefiublique dm honniiet gem ?that is to say. ' Long live order in liberty !" This day. so frightful up to the moment at which the National Guard, the Garde Mobile, and the army acting with one heart and as a single inau. dispersed the tactions?this day will be a happy oue ; it have shown the demagogues their profound impuissauce ; and it will, at the same time, make known all the inf.nny of Ihoir projects. It is auotber respite which God acoords us on the brink of the abyss ; at five o'clock ail was lost?at the present hour all may be saved. [From thn Courrier Franeais] The 15th ,iiay belongs to history?a sad day! It profoundly grieves the true friencs of the republic. The majesty of tile national representation violated; a luriotis multitude overwhelming the voice of thn men of heart uud goud sense who endeavored to advise them; mnu misled by ambition, or by the fatul passion of disorder. usurping the tribuue. and filling the tulle vv:tli their vociferations?such is the heart-rending spectacle which we had before our eyes for nearly a whole day. The grief which wo feel?we whose lives belong to the democratic cause?is iiupots.ble for us to express. May God watch over this noly cause, and always keep it beyond and above the attempts of some madmen. [From the Paris National.] To the people is due all our sympathy, nil our concurrence; but to those who usurp its uame and sovereignty ouly to ruin its inteiests. and compromise the fi>rn? of government it has chosen for itself, is due the reprobation of tnu whole country. No reaotlon! uo anarchy! ought to be the motto of every true citizen, for up iu it depends the safety of Frauce. That which the uution wills, it will uiuintuin against every anarchical orreactionary attempt. It has willed a truly democratic republic, uol a.rcpublic in mere name, decorated with the trappings of an antiquated monarchy. The pcopie will not be deceived, 'i'he moment it saw its work threatened with a species of violent surprise, it Hew to its support, uud, iu a manner, created it anew What we hail with the greatest joy is. the victory gained by the people, the people which comprises one universal body of the citizens. For those who, by a criminal fraud, endeavored to clouk a real conspiracy, under the manifestation of the uoblest and purest of sentiments. a just punishment has already had its com* mcnceraeut iu the indignat.iun of that same people whom they wished to deceive mid make their tool. They will tell you that they were yesterday conquerors. They tell you a barefaced falsehood. The people was victorious in tlx; victory of the laws it had made, of tho government it hud chosen for itself, of that holy republic which is formed of its eutirc self The republic triumphed yo?torday. as it ever will triumph, over guilty abei rations Cut it is not enmged in its triumph. or surprised lit it. because it feel* that its strength is invincible. it triumphs only with grief for those excesses which it has been forced to repress, May these lines, written in haste, convoy to our brothers in the departments, the sentiment* which animate tho entire population of Paris; and let that cry. which is in all hearts, as it is in a'.l mouths, which 1* as much the cry of patriotism as of necessity, resound from one cud of Kranoo to tho other?" five la Utpuhlii/ur!'' [From the Paris Commerce ] The cause of order and liberty is once more saved, Yesterday was a day of victory?to-day must be a #fty of justice Let us hope that justice will bo impartially done, that it may reach the culprits wherever they may befounl; hut we hope al?o that it will he administered with clemency, for. let It he recollected that clvmoucy is a proof of power. The doling Scene* In the National Aisrnlily on the 15tli of May. KVr.ninn sit ti Nil. Immediately after the representative* had left the chamber, an Impost ng de-elopement of forces made their appearance arisund the building. Considerable uumhers of the 1st and !<d legions aud of the garde mobile entered tli" hall with their arms, and caused the people to leave it. When the whole building was completely cleared, a certain number of the representatives returned. and after some little delay proceeded to hold a .sitting. All the tribunes were occupied by the national guard, nnd loud cries of " Virr Vjlnstmhlit Nationnlr rose from nil sides. The scene, in fact, was the very reverse of wiist had taken place during tho day. M. | i.n uinrti no soon after appeared and the greatest enthusiasm was manifested. A number of the national guards who were occupying the space below, rushed forward to meet him find even some of them kissed his hands, lie was in (act borne in triumph to his place. ' At. > Vi hou, one of tho vice-presidents, took the chair about seven o'clock. Oenor*l (ourtais appeared for a moment at the entry ?if the hall, but tho chilling reecfrtlon which ho met with caused him promptly to leave It. A Member Our first duty Is to declare that the National Assembly Is not dissolved Several members attempting to speak together, considerable confusion arose. Tin. Mi vhtps ok Jrsriri;?Cltlxens. the government Is In permanence. It Is determined to take the most severe and the most efficient measures to avenge the shameful attempt committed on tho natlonnl representatives, and to restore order and calm. (Hear, hear ) Tilk Miitrsi nn ok Commkrck?1 recommend the As- ' sembly to abstain from everything which might look like anger, and to leave to the government which the Assembly has formed to act as thedignity of the Assembly and the great interests of the country demand. I I ETV T? 1^1 -E> Nl M. Bebbtch supported the view of the question taken by the Minister of Justice. .?!. Lauahtini: rose uud said, addressing tho National Guard*The first duty ol' the National Assembly which by tho aid of your bayonets will be able to deliberate in security, will be to.pass a vote of thanks to the National Guards, who have merited well of their country. (Great applause, and the roll of the drums ) Numerous Voices?And to the Garde Mobile! M. LamauTi>t I join then together?tho two form but oue guard for the defence of liberty. (Cheers.) The immense majority of the inhabitants of Paris huve been moved with indignation at the scandalous scenes whicli have taken place to-day. in this place, (i hoers, beat of drums ) Shame to the wretched madmen who wanted to plunge the country in mourning !. But. perhaps, it is fortunute that the scene of to-day has taken place. (Tremendous applause.) Let us be united : let us form only oue body, whilst this pretended government goes to seek a place which will give way under their feet. We are all going, in tho name of the government proclaimed by you two months back, to meet the Executive government, who are all, I doubt not, animated with the same sentiments as I am. (Great applause ) You. cltizcns. will recognize only that government?you will obey the brave commander of the National Guard ! (From all sides. No ! no ! If it be Courtais. we will not have him ! A has Courtais ! A bas Courtais !") At such a moment, the place of government is not in the council, but at your head, in the street, on the battle-field itself! (Long continued cheers ) Lot us go to the Hotel de Ville ! (Cries of " Vive Lamartine ! Vivo tho Executive Coniinittoe !") MM. Lamnrtine. Arago, Ledru-Ilollin, Gamier Pages, and Marie, the Executive Committee, then left the hall, followed by some of the representatives. Several members here observed that it would be im possible to deliberate in tho presence of ho many National Guards. A roll of thu drum here called tho National Guards out of the hall, and they at once left the place. A Membor?J demand that General Courtais be declared a traitor to bin country. Other Voicen?No! No: Lot us not anticipate the decision of the court before which he is to be tried. We must merely authorise his being placed on trial. Other mombers?We also demand the arrest of Barbes. Krorn all sides?V'es ! yes ! his complicity is evident ! Ho made here, in the tribune, most incendii-.ry propositions : The President?The citizens Courtais and Barbes, being representatives of the people, can be arrested only by the authorization of the Chamber. Several Voices? But that is not the case with respect to Blanqui, Kuspail, and Sobrier ; they are not invested with an inviolable offl<in. The Assembly, on the proposition of M. Luneau. declared itself to be in permanence. The President had to announce that the executive committee invited tho Assembly to join it at the Luxembourg. (No ! no!) Tho Assembly decided that on the contrary the executive committee should como to it. The President?i have to announco that I havs invested General Baraguay d'Hilliers With the command of tho forces charged to the protect the National Assembly. (Hear!) M. Jules Favre announced that the oxecutive committee had invited tho Assembly to proceed to the Luxembourg. as considering it moro sure, but seeing the great uumber of National Guards round the building, lie conceived that it was useless for the members to quit it. ile should suggest the propriety of sending a deputation to ask the executive committee to come to the Assembly. A voice?Ne ! no ! * message is sufficient. M. Beruyer?It is enough for the Chamber to have beeu violated for us not to quit it! (Hear ! hear !) M. I'oittalis?As Procureur General do Paris, 1 domand authorization from the Assembly to bring to trial two of its members, the citizens Courtais and Barbes. (Movement.) After a few remarks, this authorization was granted. M. Gamier Pages and M. Arago here returned to tho Chamber and were warmly received. M. Garnier Parks?1 wish to render to the Assembly an account of the measuros taken by tho executive committee From the morning, we were aware that certain agitators intended making somo attempt and we ijttve positive orders to have troops placed about the Assembly. These orders were not properly executed. Wbon we knew that this building was menaced, three of u-tcame here, und two went to the Luxembourg, and from thence issued orders to the armed force. When we learned later in the day that a factious crowd had invaded the hall of deliberutiou. we ordorcd the force* to be concentrated on this point, and the national guard at once responded to our call. At present, our duty is to provide for the necessities of a severe reprea. siou. The persons who conspired are already in custody. (Hear, hear.) The right of meeting is sacred, but the clubs who deliberate in arms, and who speak openly of attacking in this Assembly the veritable sovereign of the country?the clubs shall be closed. (Loud applause ) We wish to have the Republic honest. firm, and moderate. (Continued applause ; cries of "Vive la Hepublique !'') France wants nothing else ?we wish to have a real fraternity, and not a fictitious one We want to satisfy the real necessities of the puople. in giving It order and work, (Great applause ) \i. Lko* K?iriikpi suggested the propriety of publishing a proclamation, declaring that the Assembly had resumed its liberty and its sovereignty. Agreed to. M. Ci.emkwt Thomas appeared in the tribune with his right arm bound up in linen, and was received with great applause. Citizens (said he), having been invested with the command of the National Guard. I come here to render you an account of the execution of your orders. The authority of the law is established Kvcrywhere the factious have been arrested and de livered into the hands of justice ; and now I deliver back into your hands the command with which you temporarily invested me. (Cries of-No! no!") I d<) not think I conld properly guard it, unless it was confirmed by the execut ive committee. At this moment M. Latnartiae entered the chamber, and ? as loudly cheered. M. Garnikr Paok*?In reply to what has fallen from the last speaker. I have only to propose the following decree:?''In the name of the French people and of the National Assembly, the F.xecutive Committeo declare* that the citizen Clement Thomas is nominated commander-in-chief of the National Guards of 1'aris. (I'nanimous applause.) M. I.amartiisk? The sedition has been nipped in the bud. The men who had betsken themselves from the capital, from the departments, and from this Assembly to the Hotel de Ville. have been disavowed unanimously by the people of i'uris. M. Clement Thomas has rendered us an account of the general result of the measures which have been tukrn to restore order; my colleague. M. Ledru-Kollin. and myself have provided for Justice taking itscouryc. One word more. From every side the people protest their devotedness to the National Assembly. Between us and them, it is for life?for death ! (Loud cheers.) M. Lukkai' wished to know what was meant by a communication that had. he understood, bean rec?*iv ed. demanding reinforcements for the Hotel du Ville ? Did the National Guard occupy at present the old hotel of the civil list in the rue de Rivoll' (Vos, yen.) M. Marie?At this moment a strict march is being instituted there. M. Luneau?I wish also to know At this moment a violent tumult was heard outside at the left-hand door, and M. Louis Blanc. supported and protected bv M. Liixoehejnquclin and another member, was pur>hed into the chamber by a great number of National Guards. He was exceedingly pal? and his elothes were torn, He ascendei'the tribune amidst great agitation. M. Louis Blanc?What has taken place to-day is extraordinary I pray you to be well convinced of what is parsing in the country. I witlied to speak to the people?with a profound conviction, with the dignity of one of your colleagues. I ant deeply grieved at seeing that you iuscrted In your regulations a clause which seemed to placo the people under the weight of a suspicion. (Violent murmurs and cries of order, order !") I cannot but persixt with respect to Poland in the sentiments which tho people hare manifested, (t ries of 'order !*' redoubled.) Several Voices?What, you think It nothing that an attempt has been made to install a provisional government ! M. Lorn Blanc?The French people aceords all its sympathies to the suffering of oppressed nations. Several voices here called to tlie President to prevent his continuing. (Oreat agitation ) M. Lorn Blanc contlnnud to speak in the midst of the most violent exclamations. We heard hint say :? " I swear to you. on my honor, that I liad nothing to do with tho scenes of this day, aud that I even expressed my disapprobation of the demonstration." Numerous Goiccs--You area larhr ! Speak not of honor ! Von are thoroughly heartless. M. Louis Blanc was then obliged to leave the tribune. M. Marrast?Citizens.I have to inform you of what has passed under tny responsibility. (Hear, hear ) At .1 o'clock a considerable crowd assembled at the Hotel de Ville, and surrounded it. They forced their way in, because there were not sufficient forces there to prevent them. They seised on the principal hall, and proclaimed a provisional government. Other factious men followed, nnd proclaimed a second provisional government The National Guard arrived, and in its turn became masters of the buildimr. Several individuals wore arrested and amongst the rest the Albert, representative of the people, and one of the members of the last provisional government. (Sensation.) I did not consider myself authorised to detain prisoner a representative of tho people, and so set him at liberty. The Chamber must now decido, M. Lanusin demauded that authorisation should he given also to proceed judicially against the citiscn Albert. After a short discussion this was agreed to. tho Minister of Commerce (M. Klocon) being the only person who stood up against it. Tho President then proposed a decree, declaring that the National Guard, the Garde Mobile, and the army had merited well of their country, and that the National Assembly thereby passed thcin a vote of thanks Adopted. The Pr?:*iih:*t?Nothing now remains but to close the sitting. A Voice?But we have decided that we are in permanence. M. Montreuil?It Is useful that the National Guard, after having protected us so effectually, should watch over tho Kxecutlve Committee sitting at the Luxembourg. and preparing important measures of publio safety. I propose that the sitting be brought to a elose, but that w? meet early to-morrow. (Hear, hear.) iaa srrafcjftfwiii W YO SW YORK, MOM DAY Ml The Hitting was adjourned to the next day. at ten in tlie morning. The Assembly then rose, at a quarter pact nine.

Some factious men have attempted to violate the sovereignty of the people, in presence of this attempt your representatives remained calm and llria; the majesty of right has triumphed over brute force The Assembly, for an iustaut disturbed, has resumed its labors. It sits in the midst of you still great, still strong, ever ready to insure the triumph of the Republic, and to realise for laborers the just hopes which the revolution had given to them.

Kkankkort-on-thk-Maink. May 14. The disturbances in this place still coutinue. and persons who have rendered themselves personally or politically obnoxious to the multitude, are visited nightly by them, and then, when they have been hooted and groaned, their houses are attacked and the windows smashed in with stones. These scenes of outrage occurred last night at the Palace of the Diet, the residence of the Austrian ambassador, at the mansion of one of the senatori of the city. Hnrr Ilarnior, and at the house of Herr Kaester, tho burgomaster. Tho last named person. I am told, was so assailed because he has rendered himself disliked by his workmen. The burgher guard, or patrol of citizens, attempted to prevent the mob from breaking into the palacc of the Auntrian ambassador, i n this attempt many of them were severely injured; one stabbed with a knife; another, tho proprietor of the Hotel do Kusso, knocked down with a stone; and finally the mob triumphed, dispersing the patrol, taking from some of them their guns, and casting them in the river Maine. As it is believed that other and greater outrages may occur to-night, the guards are to be doubled, and I hope that the force exhibited may be sufficient to prevent a repetition of these scenes. It is supposed that tho discontented operatives of Frankfort have beeu the ringleaders in these acts of violence. The following is a copy of tho proclamation under which has been convoked the meeting of the working classes which took place this day:? " Bhuthkk Germans !? ' Freedom presents its beneficent fruits to every one. Are the laboring classes alone to bo debarred of their eujoyment? Freedom Is justice; and even for the laboring classes the hour of justice has struck. Let not the sound of its chimes fall upon listless ears ! The operative classes constitute the very marrow of tho people?they are in point of fact tho people; for without labor there cannot be life, nor people, nor government. To all. then, who labor, our appeal is addressed Marshal your strength; keep the step; confederate. The isolated individual can do nothing for himself, and nought of general benefit for others. It is in union is to be found the strength of all anil by means of that strength wo cau gain the object that wo desire. When any oue trade takes up a position for itself alone, it by so doinj; separates itself from it* brethren; but when all who labor ure combined together.there is then conferred upon each particular trade the confederated strength of all the rest. The object of our union (rerein) is a clear comprehension of the general circumstances of all workmen; a distinct understanding of the matters peculiar to each particular trade; consultation as to the nu'ans by whiuh these peculiar! ties may be regulated; consultation as to the mode in which the laboring classes may participate iu those popular rights which have been w in in the rccent revolution " The right of combination is now under the protection of the law; and none uow can presume to interfere with the exercise of such a right. Brother Germans ! your future fato?the futurity of the people, is in your hands. All you who labor, be your condition what it may. regard now the circumstances and state of the operative classes as your own; eougregate together for tho foundation of a German working classes union. " Vou arc all called together to the first meeting, whiuh takes place on Sunday. May 14. at a o'clock. 1'. M.. in the Town Hiding School.'1 This proclamation brought together, at th<* appointed hour, about 4.000 persons, when a Wiesbaden workman took tho chair. The result of this meeting was tho establishment of an operative club, or workman's union, whicli is to ba governed by a comaiittlte. composed of a representative from each trade. The object of this union is to redress the peculiargrievances of the working classes. When it is known that every workman. a native, has a vote for a member of Parliament, and that he has aright to carry arini. and tint in every respect he Is on a political equality with his richer neighbors. it seems difficult to discover what can can be the peculiar grievances of tho working class In Germany. The only intelligible oue put torwsrd by the speakers to-day was. that as a cla>s they have not a representative in Parliament. They themselves constitute the majority of voters?they could elect workmen if they pleased. They do not do so. and then they claim an exclusive right to have a vote for a representative of their own. and of course a vote for tho representative of other classes. There was a solemn service in all the churches of Frankfort to-duy. at which prayers were ..ITered up fur the new German Parliament. An advertisement appearsin the papers of this morning. summoning a meeting of the members of Parliament for Tuesday next, at three o'clock, in the Hall of he Kmperors. the place usually occupied by the members of the Committee of Fifty. The meeting of Tuesday is a preliminary one. but in which it is not expected that auy matter of public interest will be transacted. All that it is supposed will be done will he the formal arrangement for proce?diug with business on the following Thursday. I have before now alluded to the intense Interest which has been excited as to the opening of the new Parliament. I could not perhaps nlTord a more striking proof of that iutcrest. than by the translation of the following notice, which appeared in the Meidelburg paper, Deutche Xtilunt, of yesterday morniug. and is ronit>i) int.n tlm l<'riinkfnrl ii!ini>mnf In.tlnv The mlitr gcstion contained in it, I huru not the least doubt, will lie acted upon universally " an ArPCAL to ALL GCRMAMl.

Upon the dispute between the Diet sitting at Krankfort alut the Committee of Kifty. a correspondent of the Krankfurtur Obfr/wtlanl$ Ztituvg writes thus : ' Srr rTOARu, May 11. From the marked feeling with which persons here peruse the account of the proceedings at Krankfort. it may readily be surmised what universal lutcrest has been excited by the dispute which has arisen between the ( ominittoe of Kifty aud the Diet. It is regarded by many as a most lamentable circumstance ; ami those who most regret it are the adherents of monarchical power, whilst on the other hand the radicals rejoice over it. aud seek to convert it as much as potsiblu to their own purposes. It is. in truth, impossible to conceivc how persons should endeavor at the present moment to take up a position which at another time, and under far more favc.*blo circumstances.

The last accounts mention that it was so crowded with troops there was no longer any room for them iu the barrack*, and they had to he quartered in private houses. The object for which they were professedly collected was to put down the violators of the forest laws in the neighboring villages. The distance, however, of AfschalTciiburg from Frankfort is not great, and in case of neee-sity soldiers could easily be marched from one point to the other. A letter from Munich. ?f the l'Jlh of .May. refers to the dissatisfaction generally felt in cousequenee of the most of the deputies to the German parliament having I had a long conference with the king before their departure for Frankfort. "It is feared from this " remarks ' the writer, "that an attempt will he made on the part of ilavaria to maintaiu an isolated position of its own, and that its deputies will be more anxiourf to forward a dynastic than one common general German interest. Such a policy could alone give occasion to the unsheathing of the sword of civil war. and perhaps of plunging ! all persons and parties into a deplorable anarchy." I have read the description, in the Hut and Cry, of i some of the political fugitives. It appears to me that the authorites. in despair of catching them, have portrayed thnm in such a manner as to ronder them ridiculous. Take, for instance. tbi? description of two of i the runaways. "Otto lleni'hlinger. 23 years of age, thin, fair hair and beard, and fresh complexion?never looks steadily at any person, and Is of a very fantastical appearance." "batter. 21 years, stout make, pale face, and black hair; may he easily reoognised by his impudauce and brutal behaviour." SchloofTel. the German student at Berlin, and the champion of the working classes in Berlin, has been condemned to six months imprisonment for that which was designated a political, hut, in reality, a blasphemous libel. Instead of attempting a defence, his speech was a series of libels upon the king and all the authorities He is a contemptible fanatic, but it is observed - r'"?? luuurui-n with the ignorant was no great a* to render his incarceration necessary. The hmtscht Zeitung mentions, on the authority of a correspondent in Frankfort, that Austria is. in (Jalliciu. about to follow the example of Prussia in I'osen, and to institute a national Polish government for its subjects in that province. The Deutsche Zrilung also states, that at the meeting of the Trotostaut Synod in Heidelberg, on Wednesday. the most amicable spirit was manifested by the professor* of the different sects, and that all agreed in seeking for a complete separation of chucch and State. A letter from I'rague gives the following account of the state of that place as the capital of llohemia:? ' The terrorism of the CzecUen has begun. Three hundred young fauatics. clothed aud armed as in the time of Ziska. constitute a corps. They call themselves Swornoszt. and only wait for the signal from the 'National Committee' to strike a blow. Huudreds of them are thus always ready for action. In Tabor, Newhaus, Sic., there are simitar corps, and there certainly cannot be less than 20.000 such /iska champions iu the country.-' A person writing from Munhclin. May 12, remarks that ? "Although the stato of siege is doclared to bn at an end. still the holding of public meetings is prohibited. Wo cannot consider that the government is justified in adopting this course, because tyhen It is admitted that the town Is no longer in an exaoptlonal state, the law should be permitted to resume its usual course." The twentieth number of the Drutachen Zurhauer was seized by tilt government, and its editor thus expresses himself:? "We enter our solemn protest against this act. and we call upon our fellow-citizens likewise to protest against it. We warn the government to abandon the. path which they seem determined upon pursuing. The violation of rigiit is at all times dangerous: but at a period of movement and of agitation its only result can be the destruction of those with whom it lias originated.M A letter from Stuttgard, May 11, mentions that there never was a liner prospect for an abundant harvast in (lermany than in the present year. On the preceding day tile price of the loaf was lowered, and the market was so well HUnulied with notatoe*. that, eoiiinurinir their price witu what it ban been fur some years. they were sold at u very cheap rate. " Bomk, May 15. " We, Frederick William. &c , hare resolved that the deliberative assembly of the Prussian constitution shall, after the conclusion of the elections of the deputies, chosen according to the basis of the new electoral'law of tile Sth of April, be opened on the 'JJd of .May. in our cipital und residentiary city ot Berlin We hereby summon the elected representatives of our faithful people for the 2'Jd of May instant: and charge our Minister of Slate to make the further requisite arrangements. ' FREDERICK WILLIAM. (Count rsigued by the Mimtters ) Potsdam. May 13,18-18." Great excitement continues to prevail respecting the return of the Prince of Prussia A deputation of the Berlin students has waited upon the minister Camphuu'en. aud another, from the burghers, upon the minister Von Schwerin, to protest against the recall of the Prince of Prussia, as a measure calculated to euJ mger the peace of the capital. M. Camphausen promised to submit the protest to the King Similar addresses have been presented from Cologne. DusseldorlT, Sic. Fraukkort-ok-the-Maimc May 15. This city was. as 1 had anticipated, again disturbed last night by the same mob of persons who have assailed the palace of the Austrian ambassador, of other members of the Diet, as well as of the respectable inhabitants. The preparations, however, made to encounter and defeat them, were more happily arranged than on former evenings. All passed off quietly during the day. yesterday, in Frankfort. It was not uutil about tea o'clock at night llidt there were heard in the streets the cries of drunken men shouting out " Vivo la Kepublique." The streot in which they collected is that in which the Diet assembles, and as it was feared tiiat the same placo might be attacked agaiu. the patrol ordered the crowd to disperse. This was refused, and a; the mob was momentarily increasing in numbers the drum was beaten for the National Guards to turn out. In less than twenty minutes there could not be less than 2000 mpn. assembled. and all under arms. The mob, however, stili maintained their position. A charge was made upon them, aud in an instant they were dispersed, leaving 20 prisoners in the hands uf the guards. Of these, eigiit were found to have received bayonet wounds. The remaining 1 i were lodged in the guard-house, where lltey await examination by the authorities All the prisoner* are mechanics?shoemakers. tailors, kc., and but four of them natives of Frankfort, It is hoped that this act of rigor upon the p irt of the authorities will put an end to the cKm ira-ii, by which the most distinguished persons in the town have been insulted, and which have always been accompanied by a destruction of property. In the letter forwarded yesterday I gave an extract from a journal to show the feeling that has been aroused by the dispute between the Diet and the Committee of Fifty. The following extracts bear upon the same point :? , " Dahmstadt. May 14. " The much talked of protocol of the ambassador from this place to the Diet has produced a most painful impressioh here. It is universally admitted that Merr Von Lepel has not only proved that he Is unfitted for the position to which he has been recently appointed. but that ho has by his act utterly forfeited the public estimation which he once enjoyed. * * * In the approaching parliament its members cannot but perceive in this incident a demonstration of what they have to hope and to expect in certain quarters; and through it. too. they may learn what they have to do to protect (iermany against the manoeuvres of a cunning, concealed, but obstinately determined revolutionary party; and how. in despite of that party, they may make their country great, free, powerful.and prosperous. The warm blasts of revolution now blow over the hills and the valleys of (ierinany; and now stand the people of Vienna, of Berlin, aud of other towns, ready for action, but waiting until they see their native land obtain its full and well-secured rights. It is under the favorable influence^ of n most Irippy crisis that ?ur national parliament meets and consults.

The good understanding between the (iermans i and the Polex is uot durable.

The peasants are rising agaiust their feudal lords, are massacreing them and driving thmn away, protesting against any return of tin? Polish system/which they regard as the re-establishment of the equestrian order. In fact, the Polish insurrectionary parly is composed exclusively of the Polish gentlemen and burgesses. This party is in arms, and marching along the frontier, announcing their intuntion of immediately crossing it. Prince Cr.artoryski has lost all his Influence over his countrymen, whose violent conduct at Berlin has alieuated from tliein all the <ytnpathy of the Germans. April 8.?The Polish peasantry are opposed to the reconstitution of Poland. There is a revulsion against it. in the whole body of the Germanised peasants in Upper Silesia, and in great part of Posnania. They trample the cockade under their feet, and threateu with a Jar outvie the gentlemen and the returned emigrants. TL ' intelligent Poles hopo and wish for the reorganization of their counrty; but only through thu means of negotiation.

The Krench envoy has made a strong remonstrance against this decision. April 27.?The Pole* of Posnanian origin will be authorized to go into the Duchy of Posen. and those of Gallician origin to Cracow. Those of Russian origin must remain in the German territories. None will be sent back Into France. The German* are persuaded that, to reorganize Poland, would be to aid France, and place themselves between two fires. The slclavonians are incapable of doing anything alone. The Pole* must be considered only a* an element of disorganization in the service of Franca. April 29.?A new manifesto by the students of Berlin against the Poles of the grand-duchy of Posen has appeared.

On April .10 , Mlernslawski was attacked in his eatnp at Milosiaw by a very superior Prussian force, but remained tu:ister of the field of battle. From .ill information, gathered with 1 the greatest care. It appears certain, first, that the pro- i vocation was given by the Poles both in Posnania and in < racow; secondly, that, their disorganized hands and their chlcfs. who are generally unknown, cannot anywhere stand against the Herman troopi ; thirdly, that it is one of the plans of the promoters of this war to in- , volve Krance in It by compromising her name ; fourthi ly. that nearly the whole of the Herman nation takes cause with the government* which represent it against the Poles ; that 160 or !()<> Poles coming from franco to Cracow, and expelled from that city on April %">. arrived at the gates of Berlin, where they were disarmed and sent to Magdeburg or Menden with passports for Franco.

May 4.?The cause of Poland, after the revolution at Berlin, seemed to have gained strength, and would have done so as fur as depended upon the Germans, who wished. In all good faith, to rt-etlahlith Poland at a hutw-i'k againtl Uiutia; but they calculated without the Poles, and without taking into account the antipathy which exists between the Sclavonlan ami Oermanle races. This antipathy is not derived from prejudices or from routine, but has its source in the elementary qualities of the two people; In their, mental and moral constitution which is founded upon directly opposite bases. The Poles havo shown themselves In 1H4S what they have ever linen. The political vices which brought In the decline of their state In the 17th, and Its dissolution in the lHtli. century, have spontaneously been displayed in all their meetings, under all the divisions of their territory The utter Impossibility <f forming any combination between the Hermanle and Polish eloments has again received the sanction of experience.
