The steamer Cambria, Capt Harrison, which left Liverpool on the 17th, arrived at Boston at 8 o'clock, on Friday morning, having made the pas sage in twelve days and a half. She brings 61 passengers from Liverpool, and 7 from Halifax. The steamer Caledonia arrived at Liverpool on the 14th instant, after a passage of thirteen days and a half. There is but very little activity in commercial affairs in England. The cotton market was dull; sales confined to the trade. There had been a slight decline in American descriptions. There had been no change in the grain markets. The weather in Great Britain had been excellent for the crops. The state of trade in the manufacturing districts remains without change. The Londou money market was pretty firm, notwithstanding the " wars and rumors of wars," throughout Europe. Consols on the 16tli June, r were 83$ for the account, but were last quoted at 831. The position and prospects of the West India sugar planters had given rise to several public meetings in England on the subject. The " Chartist movement" of the 12th ultimo c : 1 i idiieu. The renowned Tom Steel, Head Pacificator for Ireland, under Mr. O'Csnnell's Ref e il Association, died, on the 15th nit. There is not any very important news from Ireand. The repeal agitation has at present come to a stand still. The fraternisation of the Old and Young Irelanders, is not yet completed.? The consummation of an event so earnestly desired by all Irishmen, has been postponed fisr a fortnight by the leaders at Conciliation Hall, in order to give thq country an opportunity of ext pressing an opinion thereupon. The sittings of the Repeal Association are postponed for a fortnight. The accounts from the Continent, and more especially from France, will be found very unsatisfactory (if we believe the English paper). In fact, no one can speculate on the continuance of peace for any length of time, as every hour brings forth new features. M. William Tell Poussin had been- appointed ' Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary from France to the republic of the United States. There was a great excitement and reaction in P<vris in favor of Louis Napoleon. He is to be admitted to the National Assembly. The excitement continued to the latest date, and i.i i. i. : r? i_ mcMBurcB were latvcu iu Rrt|? u vigorous. * auipiilets iu praise of Prince Louia Napoleon are strewed about the crowded assemblies, and newspapers in his interest are distributed gratis. The walls were, on the 15th ult., stuck over with a placard bearing no signature, but recommending in strong terms the Assembly to dismiss the Government and the Ministry, and to confer a dictat - torship on M. Caussidi&re. Notwithstanding their defeat the Executive Commission still kept their ground! On the 15th ultimo the Assembly was discussing a proposition lor declaring Algeria an integral part of France. Th# Executive Commission having given answer to a letter of Emile Thomas, late a director ^ ot the ateliers nationaux, demanding an inquiry, that person has addressed a petition to the National Assembly, demanding redress fer the outrage committed on him by arbitrary arrest and deportation on the part of the Executive Commission, whom he charges with reviving the system of letlies de cachet. "I have been," says he, "dismissed and arrested, and yet they refuse to try me. The cause of the violence done to me is buried in mystery; there is no precedent for my treatment since the reign of despotism." ^ in consequence of the attacks made upon him, M. Clement Thomas tendered, on the 8th ult., his resignation of the command of the National Guard, but the government declined accepting it. It was rumored next day, that in consequence of the term "gewgaw," which he had applied in the Assembly to the cross ot the legion of honor, he was to fight a duel with M. Napoleon Bertrand, son of the late General Bertrand; but the nflair was ultimately ar/ ranged without a resort to duelling. The directors of the theatres of Paris waited on the Minister of the Interior on the 6th inst., to apprise him that, if the government did not afford them assistance, they should close all the theatres under their management. The commander of St. Pierre and Miquelon has informed the government, under the date of the 7th of April, that the republic has been proclaimed in those Islands. The excitement caused among the ultra-republicans bv the return of M. Thiers for Paris, has produced a manifestation ngainst htm of a serious character. About nine o'clock on the night of the 8th ult., a large mob proceeded from the Boulevard to the Place St. George, in which his mansion is situate, crossed the iron palisading by which it is surrounded, and would have forced their way r' into the house, nnd committed possibly further outrages, but for the arrival of a body of National Guards, by whom they were expelled, and driven to some distance. It was eleven o'clock, however, before the crowd finally dispersed. A strong body of the Garde Mobile, who had arri.-ed to the support of the National Guards, bivouacked on the l'l<?v St. George. The Vraie Rrpubh'que says that the revolution is only beginning. This is the paper of Barb^s, Pierre, Leroux, George Sands, Louis Blanc, <tee. We have little authentic intelligence from Naples; the whole of Calabria seems still in revolt. In Hanover, the enlightened liberal minister, Strove, teems much in the same predicament, and he- tv.'ll probably be compelled to resign, in consequence of the hurrassing demands of the ultra-democratic party. Since the buttle of Goito, and the fall of Peschi* era, no movement of a further decisive character has taken place in Lombardy. The Piedmontese wrfe preparing to occupy Isoln della Scola, to cut off the communications of the Austrians between Lerona und Mantua. The Austrians seem confined to the neighborhood of Manion, and are ravaM.ig country wherever they appear. r We team that the Emperor of Auatna meditates ( n visit to Pra-nie, with a view of attaching to hia i person the Bohemian provinces. The French, EnA glish, Swedish, and Belgian ambassadors have U reached Tnnspnick, and it is supposed that the afmfaira of Italy will there he discussed. The hopes of the people of Austria seem centered in the Archduke John, who, a* the counsellor of the Emm E KE I peror, will b? the medium of communication between him and his subjects. It is positively asserted that the Russians have crossed the Pruth, on the frontier of Bessarabia, and that the Austrian minister, Sturmer, at Constantinople, has in vain protested against this movement. It has been also reported on the London Exchange, that a large Russian force had entered Memel. This is not improbable; at the same time the rumor requires some authentic confirmation. The Diet of Frankfort seems to be occupied with the adjustment of the Sclavonian affairs, and the formation of a DirtflPPW to manage the affairs of Germany, until the definitive establishment of a supreme central government in Germany, when its sovereign functions will cease. In Prussia affairs have come to a dead lock. In the Berlin Parliament, a declaratory vote, of an abstract nature, whether the events of the 18th and 19th of March had dethroned the King, and originated a new constitutional system, being negatived by a small majority of 19, the people of Berlin have again been thrown into a state of tumult which appears like to have serious consequences. The democrats of that capital are at direct issue with the court party; and unless the mob can be brought to some reason, an appeal will certainly be made to the army, and a frightful civil war will be the result. M. Arago, the new French Minister, the Lyons Commissary, seems to fraternise wiih the jieople; and in the general excitement that prevails, this sort of propagandism can only add to the mischief. The Danes have assumed the offensive, and at present no probability existB of a speedy termination of hostilities. A strong Russian squadron is hovering about the Prussian crests in the Baltic; and unless wiser counsels prevail in Germany, we fear that the present partial contest in Schleswig will only be the forerunner of greater and more serious warfare. There are "reports from Spain that Nurvaez is about to retire from power, and that Gen. O'Donnell and M. Mon will form a new ministry. It is said the Queen is enciente. The Spanish Minister has been dismissed from London, in return for the ejectment of the British Minister from Madrid. Portugal is quiet; Costa Cabral and his party have the Chambers entirely under their control. The Despatohes to the Herald. Intelligence to the Latest Moment. inews from lovdon.

Liverpool, June 17, 1848. This morning, the barometer, and the threatening aspect of the atmosphere have been contradicting each other like two Billingsgate fish wives. The latter has, however, gained the day, for the rain has commenced fulling in good earnest, although the barometer has been rising all night and morning. We have hud east winds during the last three days, and what little there is now (10 o'clock) is from the same quarter. The weather is very hazy, and there is consequently no communication with Holyhead. Oar London Correspondence. London, Jane 18, 1848. Chartitl Humbug?Excitment at Drury Lane Theatre ? State of Ireland ? 7Vial of Englieh Ckartiete ? Howitt?Tom Steele?Parliamentary &atietice. There in but little stirring here of soy moment. It being holiday time, the two houses of Parliament haro not met during the week, until last nig at, and almost erery one thnt ean go has flown into the country for a few days. The only enlivonlng soeno was on Monday, the 12th of April, and even that exeitement was all expectation, in plaoo of reality. As I anticipated, the ohartist demonstration was a most wretehed abortion; indeed, it oan scarcely be said there was any meeting; for towards the hour appointed for the gathering to take place, a thunder storm, aooompanied by a pouring rain, acted as a powerful preventive to any display these riotous gentlemen might hare intended to make. Many people entertain the notion that these monster meetings are projected only with the view of tlr>ug out the military and civil power, by compelling ihem to make constant preparations for defending the metropolis. However true this may be. there can be uo question that the chartists are earning for themselves a most inglorious name?a very natural tbingto anticipate after their extremely silly proceedings. Nothing has been heard of them since Monday, with the exception of a few of the fraternity in the provinces: so that it may be presumed that they are somewhat tired of their pranks, especially as the law Is put in force and carried out with undoubted} severity. In all our large towns matters are quiet; no disturbance of any kind hat occurred. The engrossing topic since I last wrote has been Drury Lane Theatre. I advised you, in a former letter, that it was announoed that Alexander Dumas would open that place with a French company, under the name of the Thiatie Hietorique, for the performance of his own dramas Many difficulties stared the managers of the soncorn in the face, and a week back it was not thought that the theatre would have been opened at all. At length the Lord Chamberlain's line nse was obtained, the first night of performance arrived. and so riotous a soene was scarcely ever witnessed within the walls of any theatre. The undertaking i xmmm uviraninlw n nTin I a t n hi a t.n t htt I*'ncrliali as*torsi whn were very wrath against foreigner* for obtaining so much patronage and encouragement in thia country; and it waa resolved to prevent the performance, which waa accomplished by an inoeaaant row from aeven to eleven o'clock.

The trials of tbe prisoners now In custody for sedition have not yet taken plaee; but as the aasliea will shortly come on, they will be proceeded with. Tbe recent Spanish fracas haa not quite terminated. Senor Isturlts. the Spanish Minister, has left England, and the embassy la broken up It was stated in tbe House of Commons last evening that this proceeding did not originate with the Spanish government; itia. therefore, to be presumed that It must have been occasioned by some intimation from tbe English ministry.

I know not if any of your readers have seen a copy of HowiU'i Journal for the last month If it has not already become circulated amongst you. this will be unwelcome news to forward, vis .the application of Mr. Howitt to the court of bankruptcy This gentleman was one of tbe early proprietors of a monthly periodical entitled the fcop/e's Journal, the other proprietor was a Mr Saunders. Disputes arose between the two ; the deed or parinersmp wa? canoeueu. aunougu not nemre the publication was deeply immersed in debt. The majority of the creditors knowing that Mr. Howitt was a much more responsible man than his late partner. applied to him for a liquidation of their claims To answer these calls satisfactorily Mr. Iiowitt has found impossible, and he has accordingly declared himself, at the age of fifty-four, a bankrupt. I do not wish to offer any opinion on the merits of the case, yet I cannot help stating the fact that some time slnoe, being engaged in writing a memoir of this gentleman, I was naturally anxious to obtain as much authentic information as possible, and therefore got an'introduetion. At some trouble, I went through the whole of the correspondence between Mr. Saunders and Mr. Howitt, and I feel bound to add that, on the part of the latter, every thing appeared to be clear and straightforward. I do not doubt that Intelligence of Mr. Howitt's Intentions have reaohod you. 1 merely give them in order that no false impression may get abroad respecting them. Poor Tom Steele, the head pacificator of Ireland during the life of Mr. O'Connell, died yesterday. Slnoe his attempted suicide a few weeks baok, he has been lingering and gradually sinking. This gentleman was at one time in possession of very large estates in Ireland, but managed to run through his property at an oarly age, when as a last reaouroe, he took to agitation.

''At half past Ave o'clock, on Monday evening, the 12th instant. M. de Lamartine rushed to the tribune, in the French National Assembly, and, in a state of great agitation, announced that a serious circumstance had just ocourred in the Place do Conoorde: -Blood had been spilt?a shot had been Bred to the cry of Fire VEmptrtur Napoleon? The gravity of the elrcumstance required euergetfc measures. He then announced a bill excluding Louis Napoleon from France, but allowing the rest of the Bonaparte family to remain." Prince Louie Napoleon, the prisoner of Hani, the nephew of the Emperor, has been the hero of the last week?Vive I'Empcrcur, Vive Napoleon, d bat la r6publi<i\u, have been the latest watchwords in the streets of Paris. The Napoleon of Peace is drinking the bitter cup of fallen glory; an exile, and the man who was lately his prisoner, the nephew of the Napoleon of War, is hailed as Emperor! Truly we live in wondrous times, and a lesson has been given to humanity of the puny strength of human foresight, and we might, with the Ottoman fatalist, beat our breast and humbly bending our head to the great Creator, exclaim : " Allah in great, and Mahomed is his prophet. Wonderful are the works of Allah !" But I most say truce to philosophizing, and inar-h il forth in the close rank and file of the Nrw York Herutd'i columns the goodly array of events that huve occurred in the short space of six duys I must bring your readers back to Saturday, the 10th mat. An unusual stir and excitement was visible on the physiognomy of the people of Paris, on Saturday. The words 'Louis Napoleon,'" I'hmpereur," "Napoleon," were rapidly p issing from mouth to mouth. It was known that Prince Louis, though started against his will, and only the day before the elections, had been returned by an immense majority, tor four different constituencies. Large crowds assembled around the h II of the National Assembly, in the hopes of seeing the prince. A private ministerial council was held, and great alarm prevutled The sitting was unusually dull, till the latter part of it, when M. Heekeren, suddenly mounted the rostrum, and in a state of considerable excitement, exclaimed: "Letter* have just been received from Troyas, which stato that at the moment when a regiment of the line entered that city, the National Ouard went out to wel come it. and when they shouted. VirrU Mpubliqut,' the troops answered 1 Vivt Sapolron Lents.' " This short speech threw the Assembly into the utmost confusion, in the midst of which General (Javingnac mounted the tribune, and declared that no such fact had come to P?e knowledge of the government. and he added, with extreme energy: "Far ba it from me to wish to bring so terrible an accusation against one of my frllow eltisens I must believe?I will believe?I do believe, that ho whose name has been pronounced Is innocent. But I think I axFiress the unanimous feeling of the Assembly in devotng to public execration whoever would nttempt to I lay a saerlltgious hand on the liberties of the repnbllc." Here General Cavuguac was interrupted by the , | unanimous acclamations of the Assemb'y The I I whole of the membi rs rose, and shouted " Ft re la I Rfjmbhqur " Gen Caviugnao then continued : "History reserves more glorv and more honor for him t who will consecrate all his faculties to the service of his | country, than to him who will attempt te ahusn a glo rlous name to the profit of his own ambition." This was the commencement of the Bonaparte | movement. Advices from the Department of the Oharente were received by the government the same evening, stating that the peasantry were pouring in by thousands to vote for the Kinperor Louis s IRK I ORNING. JULY 2. 1848 Napoleon. If whs at once decided that matures d'urgenct should be adopted against the Prince. It was an old orderly officer of the Emperor's, a Col. Dumoulin, who sturted Prince Louis Napoleon aa a candidate lor the department of the Seine. He did ao without any authority or communication either with the Prince himself or with the members of the Bonaparte family resident in Paris. The three members of the family, who are already in the Assembly, were so much annoyed at the circumstance thut they waited upon the Mayor of Paris to state that Prince Louis Napoleon had no intention of starting as a candidate, and that he was put forward wn Inut his knowledge or sanction They even threatened to prosecute Col. Dumoulin for what he had done, and it was only the success of the movement that prevented the ardent Buonapartist irom finding himself in a very disagreeable scrape. It was said that secret orders were issued to arre it the Prince. This called forth n enntraftietinn from his relations, as follows: " It ta not true that the Prince U at Paris. It is not true that he is at Autenil; consequently, it is not true that the executive commission had deliberated on arresting him. Thecltir.cn Louis Bonaparte came here publioly immediately he heard the news of the revolution of February ; he quitted Paris at the end of twenty-four hours, at the request of the provisional government. He has since that remained very quietly in London, where be could have learnt but yesterday the news of his nomination to the National Assembly." Sunday uassed over in tranquility. Truly glory is worth dying for, when the prestige of a great name rouses thousands and tens of thousands at ita sound, and the word Napoleon, raised by the feeble voice of an old man, with his hair bleached by years and one foot in the grave, is re-echoed from the banks of the Seine to the Pyrenees, dying away in the distance like the rolling thunder in the valley of Chamouni, after it has been tossed from Mont Blanc to the lesser mounts, und then dropped in empty space?for, as I mentioned before, Louis Napoleon is not the man decreed to lead the French. Monday came, and the citizens of Paris rose earlierthan their wont,?the executive committee passed a sleepless night?and in a council which lasted till a lute hour, they came to a half-resolution to cancel the election of the Prince, on the ground that he was a naturalized Swiss. The sitting of the Chamber wus looked forward to with the greatest anxiety. On the Sunday evening large crowds assembled in the neighborhood of the Porte St. Denis. The streets were several times cleared with cavalry. The military adopt a new system, which will probably for the future prevent the curious frpm resorting to these places, as they have been doing ol late. They suddenly close up all tlm streets leading to the Porte St. Denis, and keep all those that are in the Boulevards, between the Porte St. Denis and the Porte St. Martin, prisoners. The consequence was, that some thousands of persons who had gone merely to see the fun, found themselves closed up for several hours in the midst of a mass of all descriptions of people, and without its being possible to extricate themselves. The following account from the correspondent of one of the London papers, will give you some Idea of the state Pans was in on Monday :? I'tiin. Monday Evoninsr. The debate in the Natlsnal Assembly, on the vote of aonfldeuoe in the government, and the expectation that Prince Louis Napoleon would take his seat to-day, has attracted an immense crowd towards all the approaches of the hall ot the Assembly; but a large body of Infantry stationed upon the bridge of the Concorde and at the ends of the streets leading to the Assembly, prevent the approach of any persons not having a ticket. It will be seen, however, by the subjoined aooount of the proceedings, that the business of the day did not commence, as was expected, with the vote of confidence. but with an important flnanoial statement made by the minister of the finances, of whiah we give the fullest account that the shortness of the time will liermlt. After the minister's statement, the debate on the vote of oenfidence commenced. At three o'clock to-day the whole of Paris was startled with the beating of the rappel throughout the whole of the oity. At the time I am now writing, the National (iuards are congregating in great numbers at the different mairitt. and every oue is asking, without cettltie anv satisfactory answer, what is the matter ? One statement is. that there has been fighting in the Faubourg St. Antoine. but I hare just eeen a person trim has returned from that quarter, wnd who states that there is not the slightest appearance there of riot or disturbance. Another uccount is that the government has received information that thin National Guard of the hanlitue is preparing to maroh into Paris, s nd to force the Assembly to receive Louis Napoleon. The report has got abroad all over Paris that Prince Louis Napoleon is to present himself at the Assembly in the course of the day, and that the government will refuse to receive him. I just learn that the orowd in the Plaoe de la Concorde commenced cryiug out. ' five Louie Napoleon, le rep<esentenl du peuple /" "five f Empereur J" and tbore being an appearance of riot, the gsnvral in command has cleared the Plaoe de la Concorde with cavalry. The whole city is in a state of alarm, but I can hardly think that the Bonapartists will he so mad as to make any serious movement. A placard from General Pyat is posted on the walls of Paris, declaring that there is not a word of truth in the reports afloat as to tho ambitious views of Prince Louis Napoleon, and that he has, In fact, no wish but that of being a private citizen of the republic. The whole of the city is in a state of great agitation. It is said that great numbers of the National Guard refuse to act. The artillery has bi-on sent for from Vincennes. I may remark here, eu pageant, that the ten sous banquet of the friends of Barb6s at Vincennes was given up as a failure. Natiouai. Ajsembi.v?Monday June 21. A considerable number of workmen had collected as early as twelve o'clock in all the streets adjoining the Chamber. The passage over the bridge was not interdicted. but, froui the crowd, vehicles could only advance at a foot pace. On the quay, at each side < f the palace, were large bodies of troops. Towards the end of the day, the orowd became exceedingly large, and great agitation was evinced. The drums were heard during the silting, constantly beating the generate. Inside, the public tribunes w-re crowded, an animated discussion being expected on the 100,000 fr. a month demanded by the executive committee for their office and police expenses, and which they had an nounced should be brought forward as a vote of confl dance. M. Arago, M. Marie, and M. Marnier Pages were the only members who were present at the early part of the sitting. M. Lamar tine and M. Ledru Rollin name in afterwards. General Cav?ignac, Minister of War, was in full uniform. The attendance of representatives was unusually numerous. The President took the chair at one o'clook.

He had not been present on Saturday during the last quarter of an hour, when General Cavalgnac had spoken noble and energetic words, and treated as a calumuy a rumor which rolatcd to a name that had been unfortunately already brought forward before the public?that of I,ouis Napoleon (Hear, hear.) Every one was aware that, for some days past, the name of that person had been in every mouth. As his friend and cousin, he came forward, not to make auy apology for his relative, for none was required; and if he (Louis) had attempted any thirg of what was attributed to him. he (Napoleon) would be the first to blame him; but to slate what was the real case relative to that oitlsen Certain parties, wbo were opposed to the republic, had seized on Louis Napnlenu'e name and made use of It for their own purposes; namely, to excite disturbance, and produce disorder In ibe country. This Louis Napoleon was altogether a stranger to He could declare that neither Louis Napoleon nor any of the rest of the Bonaparte family had ever distributed money to persons in Ktance to injure the republic?he could declnre that on his honor.

There he remained ever since. and when aeked by hie friefada if he would stand ae caudidaie f r the National Assembly. he absolutely refused When the second elections oame on. his name was put up without his knowledge, and he had been returned as the Assembly knew, for more than one pluce. It wee reported that he was engaged in a conspiracy against the republic, which it was almost unnecessary to deny. The rumor now ran that the government intended to bring in a decree against Louis Napoleon which, however, he (Prince Napoleon) found It difficult to believe since the Minister of the Interior and the Prefect of Police had aseured him of the contrary He now called on the government to come forward and state clearly what was their intention In this matter. (Hear, hear.) M. KLoeon. Minister.of Commerce, said that the explanations which had just, been given by the cltlsen NnpoUon Bonaparte, would have come better from another per-oa. (Oh. oh.) Prince NtroLcow Bosuisn- mn-t deeisre that he did not think he in any way merited the reprmeh just thrown out against him. (Agitation ) The MiifiaTna or Comvisci-The government taking into consideration the extreme gravity of the present situation, aud being determined not to allow the safety of the republic to be compromised, bed adopted a raea-nre wh eh It thought the conjuncture demanded. The government was ready, if the Assembly requires! It. to state at once what was the purport of the rteeree which It had determined to present. Rut the government did not ask, however, to have the order of the day changed, and unless the house absolutely called fora different course. It would allow the proceedings to go on in the regular manner without interruption (Yes. yes ) The Assembly unanimously decided that the order of tho day should be proceeded with regularly A number of reports on elections were presented. The order of the dav was the discussion on the bill, domandlng a credit or lOO.OOOf for office expense* of til* Executive Committee. A * 1ERA ? i" -? In the midst of the debate on this question, intelligence was brought in that the cavalry was : charging the people on the Place de la Concorde. I (Great agitation.) M. i>k L&maktine suddenly rushed to the tribune and exclaimed in great agitation? " Blood has just been *hed ? shots have bean flrsd here close by. and the ory is raised, ' five I'Emptreur Napoleon.' [Tremendous agitation.1 A law ought to ! be forthwith passed to put a atop to this." A Membra?Let us vote it by acolamation. [Unani| moua ories of "Yes, yes."] The greatest agitation here arose. M. de Lamaktine?I have it here drawn up on the instant. The honorable gentleman then read it. It declares that, considering that peace had been troubled and civil war had been commenced, though, perhaps. Involuntarily, by I.ouis Napoleon Bonaparte, and that ue uta aireaay twice made attempt* Tor hi* own personal ambition ; considering that the Kxecutlve Committee could not take the responsibility of the dls- j turbances caused, or the attempts made now for a similar purpose, deolares the bill of 1810 against the 1 Bonaparte fhmMy remaining in force against Louis Napoleon Bonaparte. [Tremendous applause.] The whole Assembly rose with shouts of ? Viva i a Repub- ! liqtttand in the tumult the question was put to pass and at onoe loud acclamations arose, and no regular ote was come to. Meantime, says a Paris letter: Outside, the troops and National Ouards are In possession of the whole of the Place de la Conoorde as far as the Rue de Rlroll. They are In Immense numbers. It was said that only a pistol had been fired, and the man arrested. Nobody wounded. It certainly all looks like a ruse to get the bill passed. Oreat agitation in tho streets, the cry is, "On it hattra ce aoir d Port's." Other troops are going towards the chamber. The result of this speech was that the vote of confidence was passed by a large majority, and the question now arises, was not it a ruse to attain it 1 1 say not. Some mystery certainly prevails respecting the firing pf the pistol. The Const it utionnel gives the following account of it, said to have been given by General Clement Thomas himself:? The National Quard, on tho Place de la Concorde, wan keeping back crowds, among whom groups of persons were remarked who were evidently hired, it was from the iniddlo of one of these groups that, about a quarter pa?t four, at the moment when (Jenoral Thomas was passing in front of the companies, that a pistol shot was fired by a man, to a cry of" Vive I' Empertur." ?? v-K? .u ?i vuo lot u. m. murine, wan wuuuueu in the band by a ball, whlcn panned between bin third and little finger. The charge immediately swept the Bridge de la (Jonoorde, and the avonuen to the I'laoo. General Thomas, who told the fact to soveral of his colleugues in the Salles des Confere ces. could not assure them that the miserable .wan arrested.'* The following account of the affair is give in Oalignani's Messenger t? " There was a great excitement in Paris yeatorday. At about half-past two o'clock the rappel was beaten for the National Guard, and a report wan immediately current, that Prinoe Louis Napoleon intended to go in the course of the afternoon, to take his seat in the National Assembly, and, that as admission would be refused, a strong display of force was required to keep his partisans in check. At thin time the orowd in the environs of the Chamber was not great, but within half an hour after the beating of the rappel, several groups, consisting of about three-fourths bourgeoisie. and one-iourth workiug classes, had assembled on the Place do la Concorde. The orowd was divided into groups, each of which had its orator, and in one of theui was a young and well dressed female, who harangued with some vehemence in favor of Louis Napoleon, not, she said, as a pretender to a crown, but as a representative of the people. In the groups, generally speaking, the feeling was strong for the admission of the new deputy totbe Assembly, but many persons did not hesitate to declare, that they were favorable to pretensions of anothor sort, whilst others treated such pretensions with contempt, and asked how any body could be silly enough to exoite commotion for a man who had twice made attempts remarkable for their weakness and absurdity, to revive the despotism of the Napoleon age. In one of tho largest groups, a well dressed- person said, ' There must be no .more pretenders, let us show ourselves good Republicans, and shout ' Five la Hepublique He then took off his hat and raised thin shout, which, however, was not repeated by more than a twentieth part of toe group. The number of persons on the Place continued to inorease, and the discnsskms in tho groups became very animated; the opinions, however, being much d vided. In one. a gentleman who resides in the Rue Monthabor, was, in his opposition to Louis Napoleon, carried so far beyond discretion, considering that he was surrounded by many persons who hud given unequivocal proofs that they were partisans of Prince Louis, as to exclaim that the pretender was a gamin, on which a workman who was near him struck him a violent blow, and others were preparing to follow np this brutality, when a citizen exclaimed, " Shame; is this the wsy you understand the principle of liberty, that you fall like ferocious brutes upon a single man because he has an opiulon different from your own?" The remark produced a great effect, for several workmen immediately rushed forward to the rescue of the offender. On the other hand. In a group not twenty yards distant from the see no of this outrage, a young mau, who had spoken in favor of the prince, was set upon, and the coat almost torn from his back. Still m?re outrageous scenes would pro. bably have occurred if the National Guards had not come up and cleared the place. Immediately round the Chamber there was a large force of troops of the line, National Guards, and Guard Mobile, with several pieces of artillery, and the gardens of the Tuileries were filled with the National Guard. About five o'clock a report of three muskets having been discharged at General Clement Thomas, an ofllcer ol the line, and a National Guard, the latter of whom was wounded, bocarae general; it produced a great impression, but did not dincouraiTA tin* mlvnoiiti>H of tumult On th? nun. trary. the groups became more and more numerous in every part' of the environs of the chamber which had not been cleared. In the evening, there were groups on the Place de la Bourse, in which the discussions ran high, and also on the whole line of the Boulevards. Towards the Madeline, the National Guards made several charges, and arrested many persons who had shouted 'Vivo Napoleon.' Many arrests were made also in tho Dace de la Concorde, amongst them was a drummer of the Garde Hepublicaine. The Minister of War was. from an early hour, engaged in passing from place to place, organizing the troops and making arrangements to prevent any outbreak. At ten o'clock the National Guards were still on foot, and every preparation appeared to have been takeu to preserve order during the night." The following is the conclusion of Monday's sitting. After M. de Lam.mitink's declaration that blood had been shed, and the name of the Emperor pronounced, he continued? " This is the first drop of blond that has stained our revolution ; and if blood has now been shed, It has been not for liberty, but by military fanaticism, and in the name of an ambition sadly, if not voluntarily, mixed up with guilty manoeuvres. In deploring with yon this r.nfortunate collision, the government has not to be blamed for not having been prepared for these sad eventualities. This very morning, an hour before the sitting of the Assembly, we had prepared a declaration. which events have compelled us to read to you immediately (movement of curiosity.) When conspiracy is taken tn/laqrante drliclo, with its hand dyed in French blood, the law should be voted by acclamation." M. Larasit (warmly)?Lot us have no vote by acclamation (great agitation.) The Prksioent?I demand silence from the whole Assembly. It is a duty, under such serious circumstances. to listen to the communication of the executive committee. I will not allow any interpoilation or auy interruption [approbation]. M. Laramt made some remarks fCom his place, which called forth a loud outburst from the whole Assembly. M LaMartirr then read the following decree : ? ' The Kxecutive Committee, ' Looking at article 4 of the law of June 12. 1810; "Considering that Louis Napoleon Bonaparte is comprised in the luw of 1832, which banishes tho family i oi .v apoienn; | Thst If tnat law has been departed from by the vote of the National Assembly In favor of three member* of that family who were admitted to take their seat* : an representative* of the people, such departure from i the law in i|ulte personal. and by no meaux applies to 1 the said Louie Napoleon Bounpaate; " I hat Louis Napoleon Bonaparte baa twice c?mn forward aa a pretender, and that hia prcteuaioua might comprise the republic; ' l'hat the government cannot accept the roaponai- J hillty of auchacte, and that it would fail iu the flr?t of it* dutiea if it did not take measure* to prevent the recurrence of them; ' Declare*, that It will eauae the law of 1832 to be executed against Louis Napoleon Bonaparte until audi lime an the National Assembly shall decid-- otherwise ' i !

I applaud with all my heart the words which have just been uttered by my relative, end which have been so well received by the Assembly; but allow u?e to make an appeal to yonr reason at suoh a terrible moment. M. Lamartlne has eloquently told you that the horrible crime, which he has denounced to us, was oominltted to the cry of a name which has never been eoeused of fomenting discord, and It is under the feeling of execration against such an odious attempt, that ho has proposed to you a bill of prescription. [Agitation.] I should be sorry to say anything to excite you in any way, but I consider It my duty to protest against a decree Inspired by a crime, to which he whom it is intended to proscribe Is a stranger. The Misiitks of Commcbcb?The deeree was prepared beforehand! ! ! M Napoi.kon Bonaparte?What a moment, then, h <ve you ohoseu to present it! Think on what you demand ! It will be enough for any wretohes to make use of a name to cover their criminal designs. The F.mpire ! who wishes for it ? It is a ohimorieal notion; It will remain as a great epoch in history, but can never be revived. [Agitation.] I protest against the connection whioh M. de Lamartlne appears to establish between this crime and the name of my relative. M. d'Adelsward, amidst loud cries of '>enongh, enough." strongly attaoked the policy of the govern meat, and, referring to its conduct on tbe 16th of May, declared that It was perfectly powerless to carry oat the plans wbiob it had announced it had adopted. No one, howorer, could believe In the sincerity or its statements. As to the Minister of the Interior, his mania appeared to be for establishing new oorps. He would mention the Garde Republioatne as one. The Minister or the Interior?That has been dissolved. M Adei.sward denied the correctness of that statement, for he had seen them on duty only the previous day, only the officers were dressed in plain elothes. The deoree of the Assembly on that subject ought to have been attended to. In presence of the faots he had mentioned, it was still said that confidence was reposed in them, but such was not the case, for the National Assembly was withdrawing it every day, more and more. After having been several times called to order by the President, the honorable deputy concluded his speech by declaring that he would vote against the bill. A member said it was Impossible to pass a vote of confidence, as tbo Assembly were not acquainted with the financial plan of the governm-nt. M. Di pray insisted that the vote should take place Immediately. Tho cries for a division now became extremely violent. The general discussion was then declared to be closed. anil the articles were brought forward. The first allows 25.000f a month for their expenses A J iintoiJ The second allows 75,OOOf, for secret expenses. M. ox Larov mu"t demand to hare thli artiole referred to the eominitteu appointed to examine the bill demanding 500.0007. us secret service money (cries of ' no. no. no.") This was rejected, and the artiole adopted. The bill in its tnsrmble was then put to the vote, when the numbers were? I n its favor 660 Against 112 Majority 467 The bill accordingly was adopted. The Bitting was brought to a close at half past seven. SITTlan or TUESDAY, 13th jure. The neighborhood of the chamber was, as usual, most numerously occupied with troops. The Place de la Concorde was left free to the public up to half-past 12; but at that hour u body of lancers ana a strong party of the Guard Mobile took up their stations near the bridge, and, forming line, forced back the crowd, nearly as far as the fountain in the centre of the place. The gates of the Tulleries gardens were also suddenly closed at the samo time, and some arrests were emoted inside. The crowd on the terraoes was oomposed altogether of workmen. After the hour stated above no one was allowed to pass the bridge or approaeb the obamber without a oard. Strong bodies of troops were posted down the quays and at all the entranoes to the chamber. I nslde the attendance of members was considerable long before the hour of commencing business. M. do Lamartine arrived early, and Ledru Rollin came in shortly after.

Daaouio: had to propose that the bill relative to Loult Napoleon be at once taken into consideration; the state of political events demanded it. Louis Napoleon was in all probability quite innocent of what was passing, but such a state of things ought not to be permitted to continue. [Agitation J M. Jules Kahrk should propose that the order of the day be not ohanged. There were certain matters relative to this question of Louis Napoleon which demanded to be cleared up. The Assembly seemed to have already made up its mind on the subject; still a sense of justice seemed to demand a delay, at least until the report on the returns of that representative should be brought beforo tho house. [Confusion; cries of ''yes. yes," ' no. no !" M. Df.oouskb had no objection to give the priority to the reporter on any of the elections of Louis Napoleon. [Hear, hear ] M. Jui.ks I- ahre, the rcportor of tho 17th bureau, had to state to the Assembly the conclusions of that bureau, on the election of Louis Napnleon for the Charente Inferieure. The election was perfectly regular. Thequestlon of his nationality had been raised, but the bureau thought the admission of the representative now named ought to be pronounce 1 provisionally, allowing him to justify his being a Krench citizen. The lion, deputy then entered at length into the circumstances which had induced the bureau to eoine to this resolution, founding it on the vote passed by the Assembly on June 'J. when the proposition of M. Pietrl to abrogate ' the law of 183'J against the Bonaparte family was brought forward He showed that the whole Assembly as well as the Kxeontlve Committee had been of opinion that the bill had been virtually abrogated by the fact of the revolution of Kebruary. and by the admission of three members of the Bonaparte family Into the Assembly. M. Cremleux. the minister of justice, had in the most formal manner declared that to be the ease, and had oven brought forward an order of the day motiri, to show that Vf. Pietri's prop' sition was BO' requisite. But M. Cromieux was the organ of the executive committee, and therefore the Assembly was to believe th?t the Government was decidedly In favor of that. cour?e morn our organ than you wore when you wore reporter In th? affair of Lout* lllanc ! \1.
