In the name of the tenth bureau, be bad to propose to the Assembly not to admit Louie Napoleon for the deI partineut of ihe Seine I M Errabu said that, as reporter of tho sixth buI reau. he had to propose to the Assembly to permit Louis Ins Napoleon to take his seat in the usual way for the deW pertinent of the Vonne Wr M; VntuiD, (who had formerly been governor or private tutor to Louis Napoleon) said that he waa on W the point, the day before, when VI. Lamartine ascended I the tribune to present the bill against Louis Napoleon, k to fulSl a sacred duty, which he should now perforin He h?J known Louis .Napoleon lor thirty yearn, and could declare that he wan not what had been stated of him in the Assembly. He might be made a deputy in spite of his declared repugnauce. but he could not lie transformed into a preteudcr. (Hear.) All these stories of money given. were absolutely unfounded? Louis Napoleon had no desire to oomc to France, or to take his seat in the Assembly. He (<VI. Vieilard) would read a letter which he had received a few day's before, from Louis Napoleou. The honorable representative here read the letter, writen from London, in which the writer declared that he was unwilling at present to outer France, where his presence might be a cause of embarrassment to the republic. not on account of his opinions, but because he would, in all probability, be an object towards which seditious men might look for the purpose of forwarding their own views If his Country wanted hiiu. he would hasten to euter the Freuch territory; if not. ho should remain where be was. iu England. M. Viellurd th n naked if that was the lauguage of a pretender? and after passing a warm culogiuui on Louis Napoleon declared that the Assembly would act weakly and uujustly iu making any difference between him and the rest of the Bonaparte family M. Mimehu sp ike at some length against the admission *f Louis Napoleon He maintained that that person was a pretender, and that if the door was opened for one it was to give encouragement to the others. M. FuistiV d -ctared that he could not buliero that the Assembly would dismiss from hie seat a representative elected by four departments. The rumors of conspiracy affixed to the uame of Louis Napoleon were all false; uo conspiracy existed. except against the weakness of the Executive Committee. The honorable representative alluded to the see ic of the day before, and asked, was It proper for M. dw I.amartine to have taken advantage of a pistol-shot, which had gone off by accident, to rush to the tribune and present a Dill against an unoffending man.' He then asked if the Assembly had not the courage to admit the heir of the Emperor Nupdeon ? Tremendous uproar greeted this demand. The President felt that the representative ought at once to declare what he meant by so strange an expression. (Hear, hear ) Mr. Fresveao said that he meant merely to speak of the glory of the Kmperor. He saw no reason why he was not. in a republican assembly, to express him self freely relative to the Kmperor. or any other question. In conclusion, the honorable representative declared, that he feared no entente to the cry of" Vive Louie Napoleon !" though he should dread one greaily to that of " Vive la Pologne The best cry of all would be ' Vive la souverante du people !" General Clement Thomas gave an account of the circumstances which had oocurred the day before ou the Place de la Concorde, but he added nothing to what was already known. He could not tell whether the pistol went off by accident or not. The men who were present were in the crowd; were well known to the police as those who daily endeavored to excite disturbance at the Porte St. Porte St Martin; and that was the reason why he had ordered the plaoe to be cleared. His object in making this statement was simply, he said, to explain his own conduct, and not to influence in any way the decision. M. RsrcLLiN spokestroDgly for the non-admission of Louis Napoleon. M. Louis Blanc said that, as a republican, he must oppose the bill brought in by the Government Shame and execration bo on him who Attempted to forward his own personal ambition ! But he thought it wouid be to give a fatal importance to any one to exclude him. when elected by the people, from the Assembly The republic was now fixed beyond the power of human power to cause it to recoil ; and why fear any mau ? Republican ideas would advance so rapidly that nothing could withstand them, if left free career ; but a measure like that now produced would be a means to impede their progress, by casting a doubt on their omnipotence It would be unfair in respect to the republic to suppose the possibility of Louis Napoiein being Kmperor. and as to his being President, it was easy to prevent it. ny declaring in tue constitution that there should be no President whatever The representative then diverged into a short dissertation on the organization of labor, amidst cries of" Knough, enough" He next spoke of calumuics directed against those who had dovoted their life to the republic. This subject being also apparently distasteful to the Assembly, he went on to declare himself against all kinds of conscription, and at last left the tribune amidst loud cries of - divide, divide," and the marked inattention of the house. M Pascal. DvmaT supported the exclusion of Louis Bonaparte The l?w was against his takiug his place as a representative. Neither the decluratiou of M Cremicux. as Minister of Justice, nor the wi>h of the Assembly, as expressed by an order of the day mutice. could do away with the law which existed. The law still rendkined in force, and he demanded to have it maintained against Louis Napoleon. M. K Lsitktrir must call for the adm'sslon of the j representative whom the present discussion concerned ' lie called f>r it in the name of the sovereignty of the people, because there existed what was superior to ail. even to the Assembly itself?and thst was principles. It certainly was strange to appeal, under a republic in order to exclude a representative, toa law made for the j defence of another dynasty which had now passed | away. M. Ledrc Rolli y?This question is too important for the Government to allow the discussion to puss OTcr , without declaring its opinion. Yesterday it said. ' A law exists, and the Kxccutive Committee will act on it : until the National Assembly shall declare its opinion on it." We are now told that the law docs not exist, i Why. then, has auy proposition on the subject been sent to a committee 7 The law exists by the sole fact ' trial 11 tins peeu a lueriiou wnemer 11 snail ne acieu on , or not.

Certainly not [murmur.] Allow me tell you that you are not better revolutionists than the authors of the constitution of 1793. The authors of that constitution tell you that in-urree.tiou is legitimate when the whole of the principle is violated But has such a thin b-en done ? The sovereignty of the people only exists in its enstinblt. and in an absolute manner, [laughter and murmurs ] If one department were ts think proper to elect the Count de Paris or llenri V . would you not say that department had made a blunder ? It has also been said that the Executive Committee bad allowed it to be supposed that the law against the Bons parte family was abrogated by permitting other members of it to take their seals in the Assembly; but io that 1 will reply by saying, that our colleagues of that family have never suffered any political condemnation. Besides, was the cbam* her ignorant of what had taken place in the last few days ' A judicial investigation has just oommenced. and it has been discovered that money has been distributed. and the house from which that money has come is known; wiue has also been distributed; criesof '-Vive Napoleon" have resounded in our ears, and the walls have beeu covered with seditious placards.

As to the information gfren by M. Ledru Hollin, of money being distributed and other acts, nothing had been prored against Louis Napoleon " I much fear." said M. J. Farre in conclusion, "that all th?s# representations like ?h-< story of yesterday about the shot tired and tbe blood shrd are only a no ans to surprise the vote of the chamber, [hear. bear.I M Bum't repeated the arguments which he had pre lonely brought forward against Louis Napoleon, and contended that the Assembly had a right to annul the eieotlon of two or three colleges (VIurmurings and loud interruption ) The honorable member continued to speak amidst ail the tumult, but his remarks were inaudible The Pbbsidspt.?Does the Assembly intend to continue dleoueelon f (Cries of" no, no," nnd divide ") I pM Br.;?*? fccUttkl Uutl hs ??? tk?i n?iat?

The discussion was declared to be closed. The PiiiioisT read a proposition of M. Ducou*. to 1 the effect that the admission of Louis Napoleon should not take place until he had declared his adhesion to the republic one and democratic. The proposition, not being seconded, fell to the ground. The Psksiocnt?I shall now proceed to put to the vote the question as to whether Louis Napoleon Bonaparte Is admitted to take his seat in the Assembly or not. [Movement of great interest ] The question heiug then put. was voted In the afflr , mauve rjy a large majority. I immense sensation, wnioh | lasted some time ] lu consequence of this vote. Loult Napoleon la admilted 10 talie hie neat, subject, however, to prove that he ia a French citixen. The Assembly separated at a quarter past six, In extraordinary excitement. This result was unexpected, both by the Executive Government and the publio. The vote of confidence of the previous day had prepared the public for all manner of concessions on the part cf the Assembly, with the view of strengthening the cause of public order ; hut unfortunately for the Executive Government. it had carried the vote of confidence by a coup dt theatre aud. notwithstanding the efforts of .VI. Lediu Rolliu to frighten the republicans by informing , the in tbat ttona|>artist newspapers were ^distributed, i money given in bags full, and all in the name of the ! empire, th- thing w-.uld not do. M. Jules Favre gave i -M. Ledru Rollins speech the coup de grace by asking If all these dreadful attempts were like the Fhots fired yeiitcrday at Lien- ial Thomas, which, though tbey had the effect of Inducing the Assembly to pass a vote of confidence in the Government, under the influence of alarm, turned out. on iuquiry. to be merely a single pistol which went off by acoident, and wounded the person whose awkwardness occasioned it. The effect of M. Jules Favre's advocacy, which was really v?ry spirited, was to carry tile motion Prince Louis Napoleon's admission wan voted by an immense majority, of which tbe exact uumbvrs cannot be known, as it was par titrit et levt In the division there were some very curious combin-itfonH : M. Louis Hlanc and M. Jules Favre voted for the admission of Prince Louis Napoluon. against MM. Lamartine and Ledru Rollin; and along with M. Louis Blanc voted MM. Thiers, Berryer. and Dupin. A great number of members abstained from voting. The Patrit of Wednesday uight says tbat, immedl ately after the admission of Louis Bonaparte into the National Assembly, M Ledru Rollln gave in his resignation as member of the executive government. Another paper, however, states that the question was not a cabinet ono, and that, the executive government determined, a short time before the sitting, that the government would not oonsider the vote as affecting its position, whether it was in favor of, or against the admission of Prince Louis Napoleon. The great display of troops and National Ouards which for the last few days were to be seen in all parts of Paris, and especially in the neighborhood of the Assembly. are generally considered as haviug beon quite unnecessary and as having boen got up for the purpose of creating alarm and thereby inducing the Assembly to vote according to the wishes of the Ooverninont. Yesterday the troops in the place de la Concorde. and the wholo of that district of the city, were actually more numerous than the people. Thare were certainly a few cries of Vive Napoleon," but they wero not many, and they wero always accompanied by the words U repmentant tin peuplt. As for disturbance or riot tnere was actually none, excepting that which was occasioned by the violenoe of the troops themselves. The Rue Rivoli was several times cleared by charges of dragoons. This created a good deal of irritation, and the troops were occasionally hooted. In the evening all was perfectly quiet. Galignani't Mtttenger says : A considerable force of National Guards. Garde Mobile, and troops of the line, and cavalry, was posted yesterday round the National Assembly,and the Place de la Concorde was surrounded by detachments, so as to prevent acoess to the public. In the gardens of the Tniloripo thi'PP wn.3 h. litfjM niimlipr of Vntinnnl riii*r<lu kept in reserve. There wore several groups of people on the outside of the line formed by the troops, end in some of the adjacent streets. These groups differed materially from those of Monday, when the minority consisted of the working classes. Yesterday they were considerably In the majority. Generally speaking there was little tnrbulence in these groups ; but some persons, about ton in number, who set up seditious cries, were arrested. It was reported that three men who had been arrested, and shut up in the Corps dv Garde, .near the Place des Invalides. had been liberated by a body of abont fifty persons, who attacked the po*t, and disarmed the fire men who were on guard there. Another post was attacked and disarmed, but most of the rioters were afterwards arrested. About two o'clock an atrocious attack was made in the Rue de Riroli upon a gardien de Paris, named Savary. by a band of ruffians, some of whom were armed with knives and pistols. Savary drew his sword, and made, a courageous defence; he would, however, have been murdered, but for the manly intervention of M. Hallei. Commandant of the National Guard of Barle-Duc. and M. Patllet, of the Rue St. Honore. who defended him vigorously. A detachment of dragoons fortunately came up. and the assailants, who were mostly men in blouses, fled in every direction The gardien de Paris was taken to the Salle des Conferences of the National Assembly, with his clothes much torn and his faee bleeding. Ilis sword was afterwards found in the garden of the Tuileries. where it lnd been thrown by the meo who disarmed him. Last night there were no attroupements at the Portes St. Denis and St Martin." The National of Wednesday says? " M. de Persigny. who has made himself remarkable for his attempts in favor of Louis Napoleon, was arrested on Tuesday at his residence It is in a great part part to his instigations and ids acts that night, it Is Haid. that is to be attributed the agitation whioh has boen produced for soo? days past in the name of the hero of the attempts of Strasbourg and ! Boulogne." I The rote in tavor of the admission of Prince Louis Napoleon as a member of the National Assembly, has had the effect of greatly calming the excitement of the people, and especially of the working classes. There are many who think that had the decision been the nther war wa should have had a serious rmeutr in Pa. rls What ultimate effect tha vote will have upon the fortune* of the republic, and of rrince Louis himself, it is Terr difficult to calculate. The Parw correspondent of a morning London pnper, write hs follows :? It Is generally thought that inconsequence of the vte ol yesterday, on the question of the admission of Prince Louis, a part, and probably the whole, of the members of the ex -entire government will resign ? 1'his morning th'Te was a cabinet council on the subject. whtrli was a* tended not only by the whole of the executive government, but by all the ministers. At the hour at which I write. I have not been able to ascertain ?hat ban been done, and it is probable it will not be known before to-morrow I understand that so iinxious was the governrmut to have the sulyect considered iu full council, that M. Carnot. who has been confined for some d*V? by illness, wat carried te the meeting M de Lamartine and M. Ledru-Rollin are of opinion that the whole of the ex-cutive government should at ouco resign M Gamier Pages and M. Marie ire of a contrary opinion, and think t hat the executive government should remaiu united, at all events, till the constitution shall have boon adopted, as they fpresee great evils in so many changes from one teuipwary governm'-nt to another. The opinion of M. trago is not distinctly known, but it is supposed that he is inclined to join in opinion with MM. Uarnler I'agi-s and Ma ie. ft was very currently reported on the Bonrse to-day that the executive government had altually given in their resignations, but this is not the case. P. S.?I have ju?t learned that the executive government is not to resign without another effort to obtain from the Assembly something like an expression of its confidence. Not choosing to remain under the impression of the check which It received yesterday. iu the reception of Prince Louis Napoleon, a meeting of the friends of the government was held today in one of the bureaux of the chamber, which was attended by M. Floe on and M. Duclerc. and at which it was resolved after a long discussion, that at the public meeting of the Assembly, a question should be nut by one of the friends of the ministry. M. Pascal Du: prat, with respeet to the rumors afloat as to the retire I?I *nl oi i.furu ivoiUQ. ?I1U ummimrwdrun ,m. uihib lien.iin should present a motion in the shape of a declaration on the part of the Assembly, that the rote of yesterday does n >t. in ony respect, weaken the vote of confidence in the government paaaed on the previous day. The sitting of Wednesday was calm and without interest ; the funds rose slightly. The demand of h note of confidence was post|>oned. The sitting of Thursday was of little interest. It may he summed 11.1 e* follows:? The crowd nnt?tde th? chamber was not very great, tome workmen were seated on the parapets of the bridge, or collected in small groups, sneaking, as usual. ?.f I.ouis Napoleon. Some lithographic portraits of the Prince. exposed f> r ale near the |wlaee of the National Assembly, attracted all day a circle of gasers. The handier was strongly guarded, as it has been since May 15 Inside, the attendance of members was not. at first, very great Humor was current in the Salle des Conference that Louis Napoleon had arrived In Paris in l he course of the morning The President took the chair at a quarter past one. The order of the day was the interpellations to be j addressed to the Lxecutlvc Committee NT Pascal. Dcvbat ascended the tribune amidst some marks of surprise, as none of the members of the F.sel utlve Committee were present, and only one Minister he for Foreign Affairs?"Oentlemen,'- said M Pascsl ! ! hi prat -'the grave and important ctreumstsinees which induced me yesterday to demand permission to ask for , nms explanations from the government, have bmiorn* exceedingly modified (Ah. ah') They in faet no Ion- ! per exist (Ah ah!)

The Britannia, which Hailed from Liverpool ou the 10th inst., will, in all probability, have taken out the result ot the udjourned debate on Mr. Herries' amendment for a change in the navigation laws. On Friday, the 9th, a division took place at a late hour, with a majority for the ministerial motion?Mr. Herries' amendment?of 117. The House then went into committee: the resolution was agreed to and reported forthwith. A bill founded thereon was afterwards brought in, and the House adjourned. The Chartist and reform movements in England continue. PRUSSIA. Berlin was tranquil on the 12th inst. The Prince of Prussia has returned and taken his seat in the representative assembly. He was very coldly received. Great agitation is still visible in Prussia. DENMARK. The idea of peace between Germany and the Danes vanishes daily, and whatever inferences may be drawn from the replies of Lord Palinerston, or of Count Arnim. in Berlin, it is quite ceitain that peace is more aistunt than ever. While these ministers indulge us with hopes, the German Parliament publicly declare that the war shall be carried on with redoubled vigor, for the honor of Germany, till every foot of ground which they call Gennany is given up by Denmark, and this means nothing less than the whole of Schlcswig. In the meantime, a vigorous warfare is kept up by the Danes, who gained a decisive victory over the combined forces on the 5th inst. The Danes commenced the attack near Dubel, about twelve o'clock on Monday, the 5th, retiring slowly upon Dubel, where they were so well entrenched that they could defy the whole combined army, commanded in person by General Wrangel in chief, und General Halkett for the Hanoverians. Three times they attempted to storm the entrenchment, but without the least success, and their loss was dreadful. Several battalions were completely cut to pieces, and it is said upwards of 1000 men nave been lost on this occasion, on the side of the Germans, besides some thirty or forty officers. Monday evening and Tuesday morning, upwards of 500 wounded were brought into Flensourg; the loss on the part of the Danes was comparatively trifling, the men being well protected by the entrenchment, heavy guns doing the butcher work, against which the Germans hatlonly their small field pieces, their heavy artillery being left behind. The troops are quite dispirited, ana declare they will not advance again upon Alsen, and it is now generally supposed no further attempt will be made upon this place again, rne uanes remain in tneir position Dy uubel. The. Prussians are posted in Sunderwittsch, having relieved the army of the Diet, who retired upon Flensburg, which place the Danes threaten with bombardment. The appearance of things at Frankfort begins to alarm our good citizens; already we see a civil war, or the greatest anarchy and disorder throughout the country. A few weeks will decide the fate of Germany?the fate of the republicans, or that of the sovereigns ! A very short time will also decide our annexation to the German Customs League, in consequence of orders from the Parliament; ihe only thing to be bargained for, if iwrnible, is for an entrepot. That the result cannot be questioned, the proceedings of the Chamber of Commerce show, and now Hamburg may bid adieu to its privileges, its rights, and its commerce. AUSTRIA. The Vunna Gazette publishes a ministerial decree, convoking the imperial diet, with only one _i I .IT- nj.L T :.L ~~ 11 ciiHiJiUT, iur uir ahui junr, wiui tin cicciurm tiiw, according to which one deputy will be returned on every 60,000 inhabitants. The province of Lower Austria, however, in consideration of its commercial importance, will return 37 deputies, ot which number 15 will be returned by the city of Vienna. Lvery Austrian citizen who has completed his 24th year, is eligible, without distinction of religious profession. The opening of a Sclavonic Congress at Prague has struck a cnord in Austria which has vibrated through the whole political frame of Germany. The alternative " Sclavonic or German" never came forwurd in so prominent, so menacing a form as at the present moment. The Cologne Gazette of the 8th inst., in an able article on tne actual position of Germany towards foreign powers, speaks of this movement in the following terms:? " A great danger threatens n* from the Selavonio tribes of Austria. The Sclaves will not be satisfied with being placed on an equal footing; they wish to dominate They dream of a Sclavonic i mpire. It is easy to imagine what we might exp< ct from a state where the preponderance of tne votes would be two to one against Germany. If Austria is to continue in existence, we see no other means of its doing so. un less it become a true confederate state, in which the individual nations will exist as separate and distinct members of the whole state, and In such guise that large space will be left to each for its own separate development. A simple majority of votes would be the most insupportable despotism. Bat if Austria is really to fall to pieces, we bare rights to make good upon its territory, which a million German tongues will cry out for. and which are founded on the history of a thousand years * * *. Let then Germany watch with a careful eye over its German Austria, that it may not he swept away by events which may rush upon us like a whirlwind. Bat. above all things, let it not be overlook) d that in the background of the whole Sclavonic movement there stands the Csar and his Russians, with the threads of the plot in his hands." Tb" Sclavonic Congress has already commenced its deliberations. Palacky has been elected president, and the three principal sections of the Sclavonic race in Austria are led, the Czecho-Sclaves by Sdiatfarkis, the East-Sclaves by Liebelt, and ilie South-Sclaves by Stainatovitz. In the very ir-t silting, it was declared that Austria was to be a Sclavonic empire, as the Sclavonic tribes formed its ingredients. " The Austrian Monarchy," says n letter from Prague," is rent asunder; but the struggle between trermansund Sclaves will commence ; the nationalities will have a death-struggle with each other. Hnssia, which has hitherto remained quiet, will step forward in favor of the Sclavonic tribes of Austria." Our Paris Correspondence. Inminency rf Counter Itevolution?Dying Condition of Theatricali?.Igitation about Louie Xapoleon. Parii, June 14. IMS. We are once more in the midst of alarms and revolution?a counter-revolution, (call it what you will.) ?eems imminent. The truth is, the public has learned that a republic does not bring all the sweets which were expected from it. Bankruptcy stalks abroad, shops are closed and covered with bills, on whleh "Liberty, Kquality and Fraternity," are repeated often enough to console the insolvent owner within The gay thoroughfares of the Rue dn la Palx and the Rue de HI vol! are not Inaptly compared to the streets of Pompeii. The splendid hotels are soinu of them closed. : and some kept open at a ruinous toss : one was men- ' tinned, a day or two flay since, in the Rue Kichielien, which was still kept open at a daily cost to the proprlelor of 1000 francs. The only considerable hotel at ; this end of the town whleh pays Its expenses, is said ! to be Maurice's, which is so much frequented by Lng- ! Iish and Americans. The theatres are literally ruined, and for the first time in the history of Paris, sucb aca- ; t a'trophe will be exhibited as the closing of all places i of public amusement ; such an event did not occur in 1 the reign of terror, nor in the invasion of 1814 or 1816; I but at present It seems Inevitable. I have late- j ly, from curiosity, visited most of the popular theatres, and I ascertained that the few persons who were there, were there on free admissions.? The other night an opera, t?y a popular composer, was pertormcd for the first time, ao event which, in other times could not only have filled the house to overflowing, but also have raised the prices For the <irst hour, however, there were not twelve people in the bouse, and later, the managers were obliged to send out to Invite persons to come to make a show. A meeting of the proprietors of ail the places of public amusement took place a few days since, and an aplicatlon to the minister of the interior was agreed upon. A deputation was accordingly received by him. who informed him that unless the Sta e came forward with some effective aid. the spectacles must be closed. It appears that what Is demanded la a subscription j from the State of a million and a half of francs to enaIds the theatres to keep open during the rammer.

So far, tHAefore, as we can now eee, It is probable that the theatres will be all eloaed, with the exception of those that receive a direct subvention from the State?these are the Orand Opera and the Theatre Krancais Both of these sustain a heavy nightly loss, but great sacrifices will be made rather than forfeit at once their subvention and their license. The great event of the past week, has been, however, the question of the admission of Prince Louis Napoleon, to sit as a member of the Assembly. This Prince has been returned under the election by universal suffrage, for four department, one of them being that of the ca pital. Popular manifestations in his flavor have broken out at Troyes and in other places, and cries of" Vive l'Empereur'' have been occasionally heard. In some regiments of the line like tendencies have been exhibited. Under these circumstances, the Executive Government pat forth a declaration that the law of 18S2, proscribing the Bonaparte family, could be put in force against him, and instructions were sent to the authorises In the provinces, to arrest him wherever he should be found. Meanwhile, the question of his admissibility as a Representative, was brought before the Assembly on Tuesday, it having been previously discussed in the bureaux, of Which some reported for and some against his admission. The Government vehemently protested against his admission, and declared that ft would not be answerable for the peace if the couutry if he wre admitted. Meanwhile, cither from real alarm, or as many suppose, for the purpose of frightening the Assembly into a vote of confidence in it, the Executive Commiasion ordered the rappel to be beaten on Monday, in Paria; aud in the course of an hour all the National Guard wa* on foot, and an immense body of troops of every arm surrounded the Assembly ; the aspect of things was. in fort. the same as on the 16th May: but no one could discover the cause. In the midist of this confusion a vote oi eonfldcuce was passed on Monday. On Tuesday, the same display of military force took place and the question of the admissibility of Louis Napoleon was brought forward. The Assembly, however, having its eyes opened, or imagining them so, to the trick played upon it on Monday, decided most unanimously against the government, and voted for tho admission of Louis Napoleon as a representative. At the time I write, the arrival of the Prince in France has not been publicly aunouneed, but it is said that he is in Paris. Before I dispatch this letter, I shall, however, be able to supply further particulars on this point Dnrlng the last week, the government has been alarmed."also , by enormous attrouprmmti, as they are here called, or mobs, as you would call them 'in New York, which assembled nightly around the Porte St. Denis. These, for a few nights, were allowed to pass without notice; but a law against attroupement? wrfh finally proposed and passed in the Assembly, and a corresponding proclamation against thorn was published. After this, a strong military foroe was marched nightly on the theatre of disorder, and immense numbers of arrests were made, in which were many foreigner*, both Ameriean an J English. Two attar hit of the English embassy, and an English lady, in male attire, wore among the number The total number arrested in this way amounted to above 2000. Each night they were marched off to the Prefecture of Police and the Coneiergerie, where they were obliged to remain until morning, and some even for two days. On showing that they were mere spectators, those not culpably concerned were, at length, dismissed. Among tbe interesting events which have ocourred sinoe my last, is the return of M. Thiers to tha Assembly. He is elected for five departments, and will be, probably, for a sixth. No one doubts, that in the present state of publio affairs, he must soon occupy a high position in the government; he is, in fact, the only man of administrative capacity and political experience in the Assembly. Yon formerly expressed a wish that I should throw into my letters sonic of the more light and amusing matter, such as the gossip of the drawing room. Alas ! alas! Paris is sadly changed sinoe you last visited it. The gossip of society ! why, there is no society; the word has become obsolete; the talons are closed; the brilliant receptions have ceased; the splendid equipages have been brought to the hammer. Of the more affluent, three-fourths have emigrated, and those who have remained at home have closed their windows and doors, as families are wont to do in the dead season in London, when they cannot, or will not, visit the wateiing places or their country seats. The buurgeoise are sitting in despair in their empty bureaux, and the boutiquerie are consuming such portion of their former gains as they were fortunate enough not to lodge in the savings' hanks. In such a state of things where is the light intelligence possible for a correspondent to send you; the only excitement we now have, is the tiueute, and the only musical entertainment the alarm drum.

Resulting from this multiplicity of political or financial incidents, is a state of doubt and hesitation which would finish by suspending all business, if hopes of the crisis soon being brought to an end wero not, almost against hope, for the moment, entertained. Since my last, the first event that occurred, was the dismissal of the law officers of the government, with the under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs) which would; iMras supposed, bring about some political consequences; it ended, however, only in a ministerial modification. From this conflict, the funds were but slightly affected. The neat point of attention was the elections. At Taris, the victorious party are eertainly the democratic socialists, whilst in all other parts of France order and authority have been predominant; nevertheless, the Bourse has not considered these latter nominations as a sufficient compensation for the influence of radical opinion in the capital. The funds have fallen, and this result has been augmented by the numerous ott'oupementt which. ! without adopting any decidedly tumultuous or men- J acing character, have kept all the commercial parts of Paris in alarm every evening. The threat of the great < banquet at Vlncennes. too?above some 50,000 or 00.000 were to assemble, without any alleged'intention, but probably to work out the views of the enemies of order and security?has also exeroised an evil influence on business. Amongst the members chosen, is Louis Napoleon Bonaparte, who is. as a pretender to the crown, pro scriD'-a. ana wno. u was aiiegca. wouia, nniwunnana- | ing this proscription, present himself at the Assembly ! on Monday. This has nada somewhat serions influence at the Bourse, since many parties think tb?y foresee in these events. If not an incentive to civil war at least 1 a brand of discord, andthe continuance of excitement. His having been supported, too. by a party who lately j held democratic opinions, and some *f the soldiery having saluted his return, by cries of" F?V? I'Empereur," have not tended to relieve the anxiety felt on this account. On Monday the Minister of Finance presented his financial scheme, which be has so sedulously kept secret to the Assembly, lu his address to the Assembly, be said " The government, putting aside the disastrous ilea of paper money,'' which would appear to argue something like a conviction of sound financial policy. His scheme, however, has been received with hut little accord, and is almost universally condemned, ills first proposal is to effect a loan from the Bank of France of 150 millions, of which one half is to he advanced in 1848. and the remaining half in 1849. as a guaranty for which the government should give stock from the sinking fund for 75 millions, and for the other 75 millions timber from the Stale woods, with power to re sell it by public auction The interest of this loan is paid at 4 per cent per annum?the circulation of the notes to be agreed on between the Minister of Finance and the bank, subject to the ratiflctian of the government. The next featurs in his plan is to receive directly from the Departmental Receiver's Oenerai the sums which heretofore they had laid out in stock in Paris, giving them an amount of newly created stock in lieu thereof. This he calculated would produoe 25 millions. From the sale of State timber, salt marshes, and other sources he expected to realise other sums, as under.

If, however, the private domain of the ex-klng should be allowed by the Assembly to be responsible tor the debts of the ex royal family, that would give twenty-Ova millions more to the8tate. or in all, Ave hundred and eighty millions of extraordinary resouroes.

At the Bourse this plan has been universally con. i demned. as dangerous to the public credit, and almost Impossible In execution. The guaranties offered to the bank for Its 160.000 000 of loan, do not appear satisfactory. since in case of a criaie. it would be Impossible to realise them to meet the demands Besides, the creation of 160 000 000 more of bank notes, when the bank could not pay Its present issuesjn cash, is con- I stirred as highly Impolitic. Taylng the treasury bouds according to the plan of the minister, would, as they amount to 250.000.000, require fourteen years to repay them, an arrangement that never could, with these securities, be carried out Securities of all kinds, however, have maintained j ^ P "? 1 11 ? i ?

A Sketch of the Esiilim; State of Political Feeling and Partiee, in Germany. A member of the extreme gauche said, lately, to the Prussian National Assembly, and to the ministers, " You saoer at the revolution to whieh you are Indebted for your presence hero;'" whereupon, a voice from la Jroite answered him, " Y<u attack the military, to whom alone the Prussian State owes its existence." la these two exclamations are actually characterised the two political parties in Prussia and in Germany? the one holding to the past and to privilege, is, with all Its various shades of difference amongst its own members, comprised by the people, undor the ono name of kt rphptinn the nth?*r. that "ilHtiinrrhtii* nartv." which proclaims the sovereignty of the people, demands < equal rights for all. and, with various degrees of energy, < seeks to bring about, In a longer or shorter space of < time, the abolltiun of all privilege and preference. i The bulk of the former party oonsists of the mill- | tary and civil rmjiloyeet of the government (these form , lhj virtual nobility or privileged class in Germany), | and at its head are the sovereign prinoes. As the re- j preventative of this party, the Prince of Prussia stands chiefly obnoxious to the people's hate?and next after him, the ministries of the various States ; for the people's loyaltv, or, as others view it, their fainthearted- < ness, shrinks from pointing at crowned heads as the source and fountain of the evil. Of the different provinces of Prussia, I'omcrauia. Hast and West Prussia proper, the German portion of the Grand Duchy of Posen, the Ukermark, and the Protestant part of West phalia. serve more particularly as the stay and support of the " reaction'' party. Of the remainder of Germany. Mecklenburg and the Tyrol are the most deeldedly reactionary. The democratic party, which, after long years of preparation, has at length emerged into tho light of day, enjoys as yet uo sounding name for her rallying cry ; for those w)io, by their speeches, in the former " Landtag," or by their writings, had opposed the old reign of ubsolutism, are for the most part unable to keep up with the present more decisive movement. Of all the Prussian delegates, Ceunt Heirhenbach, the founder of the democratic party in Silosia, is the most popular, and is looked on as the representative of democratic views in the House, without having had, us yet, any opportunity of demonstrating his capabilities for that position. Jung, the founder of the democratic club in Berlin (though indirectly disavowed by it), possesses neither the talent nor the strength of mind lo take up a position by the side of the foiiner, and stands in the House, us he does with the people, isolated and unsupported. Of the notabilities not in the Chamber, Held, the editor of the Locoiuotivt, one of the most extensively read journals of Berlin, is the reul man of the people. For a portion of his popularity he is doubtlessly indebted to his fine voice, and his gift of ready speech ; in the eyes of many his character is equivocal, and his abilities medicare. He is not without expectation of being elected general of the Berliner Burgerwehr, now that General Van Aschofl's unpopularity has compelled him to resign the post. Since the 18th and 19th of March. Berlin Is looked on as the chief seat of the democracy. aKhough " reaction" still finds a strong hold here in the centre of the Trussian bure&uocraey. Next after Berlin, on the revolutionary side, ranks the wretobed and starved Silesia. with its chief town, Breslau ; and next to them. #Vi<a tJ VianLVi nwAwSnnsiu That Pnliah nnrtinn nf fha nrn. 1 vince Fm?d, ho lately crushed and kept down with barbarous severity, sues, in the triumph of the revolution, its only rescue. The recall of the highly unpopular Trlnce of PrUksia has. in Berlin and in the provinces of Prussia, brought over to the democratic party numerous adherents from the hostile ranks. Out of Prussia, three-fourths of the grand duchy of Baden are republican; Vienna, which has upheld her 1 revolution the most decisively, and the most successfully, is in favor of a democratic monarchy; Bavaria. Wurteniburg, Saxony and Hessen, Incline more or less to demooracy; while the little principality of Altenburg, but for fear of the Prussian troops, would have already proclaimed a republic. The head of the demoo ratio movoment in almost all German towns is the democratic clubs, of which the Berlin, the Breslau. the Cologne club, and the heipsio Vaterlandsverein (now the Republican Club) are the most important, aud contemplate forming themselves shortly into a general Congress. Side by side with these, tho Constitutional Clubs drag on a | puny existence; constitutional monarchy finds but little rest in the hearts of the politically uusophisticat- ') ed Germans, since, as the manifesto of the radico de- j mocratical party in Frankfort expressed it, the conati- j tutional king is simply the fag-end of an absolute one. 1 They are struck with admiration, it is true, at the wisdom which leaves to desDOtism onlv the sinecure of I nominating its prime minister*, and begetting it* successor, but find themselves incapable of creating such a fag-end of autocracy for united Germany, over which, as yet, no common master stands, unable, in the year of our Lord. 1813. to solve the problem how tomanufacture a worn o\\t hat. The democratic party is, unquestionably, the stronger of the two. both in talent and numbers. While, on ' the side of the reaction may bo counted the advantage of an admirable organization, of its strength in the * army and in the government officers, (with whom it is a matter of life and? death) the t it inertia of the ad- < vanced in years, and the love of quiet and profitable trade in the middle classes?the democratic party, ?? the other side, is upheld by tbe embittered feeling of the oppressed classes, by tho number ofyonng liter-ati, the consciousness in the younger members of this community that theirs Is the future, and the indomitable longing of the human heart after freedom. jfcThe democratic party is, at the same time, the champion of the nnity of Germany The sovcreigu prine?s naturally enough oppose with all their might and mai:n a unity which would place the sovereignty they have hitherto enjowd. under '.he control of the central board in Frankfort, as a s >rt of peerage of the empire. For this pnrpose it was that Prussia and Saxony convened their national assemblies simultaneously witli the Frankfort ono, in order to strengthen their separate interests, asSopposed to the collective interest of united Germany. The democratic party lastly stands up for the independence of ail the various national ties that have i been at different times brought under tho sway of Ger- . man princes. It hates and despises those cabinet pc- ! lltios which traffics in uatlons, and under which Ger- ' many has, for thirty three loDg years, endured most lamentable dismemberment and aggression. Alison, speaking of tho French revolution, asserts . that the decisive interference of one energetic man would have saved the throne of the Bourbons; ?. had ' the Bourbon throne not been worm-eaten and rotten. ! powerful supports might hare been found to prop it I up with; ana so it is with the German reaction. The j feeling of decrepitude, in lace of the youthful spirit of l the new era. makes it waver, and dictates to it measures which its worst enemies could not hare better j chosen for its annihilation. At this present moment i it is summoning up its last forces; the German democracy. on the other hand. Is essaying its first. A dull and sultry thunder- oloud looms over the whole land, j All men feel that a fearful struggle, such as never yet | has been recorded in history, is approaching; a struggle in which Russia and France, tn which Europe and the whole world, will take a part, aud the eventual re- i suit of which will bo either another long and dreary night of barbarism, or the ever-during triumph of the glorious sun of freedom.

Khou'd the constituent assembly, in the course of its constituent labors, persist in its adherence to the principle of an "agreement," another revolution seems inevitable; as, Indeed, addresses from all parts of the kingdom have already notified. The excitement at the motion of Mr. lierends being rejected, was excessive. Thousands w-re assembled in tho vicinity of the Session Hall of the Constituent Assembly, and it was with great difficulty that tho deputies Juug and Broil could in any degree appease the resentment of the people.

Nothing could be more full and unreserved than Mr. John O'Connull's confessions, at the last two meetings at Burgh Quay, of utter and ab- i ject failure. The conviction that his politioal influence is hopelessly exiugubdiod, lias been forced upon Mr. J. O'Connell, to give his own words, in tile most unmistakable manner. Conciliation Hill Is insolvent. Tho name of O'Connell will soon bo buried in oblivion, and Mr. John O'Connell must soon give up the i|uestlonahlo honors of a nominal leadership, and bo absorbed In the mediocrity. .dr. O'Connell has been going on the cautions dodge, and it is a difficult matter now to combine safety, and. at the same time keep - . hold ,of the influence which, to ensure success, h<- * should necessarily possess.
