HISTORY OF THE TERRIBLE EVENTSIN PARIS. &e. &c. &c. The Niagara's mail reached this city, early yesterday, notwithstanding the dense fog of the previous night. We are indebted to Captain Joel Stone, of the splendid steamer Cornelius Vanderbilt, for this favor. The following is a history of the frightful events in Paris, taken from the London Chronicle, received at the New York Herald office by a special messenger. Our special correspondence has also been received. It is very full and complete, and we shall immediately commence the publication of our letters. Our readers may rest assured that they will fird the fullest particulars of the terrible occurrences in Paris on the 23d, 24th, 25th and 26th of June in the columns of the Herald. We mean to give, from day to day, a historical sketch of the four days' fighting, with all the incidents, the names of the killed and wounded as far as known, the proclamations, the proceedings in the National Assembly, ?tec. ice., till the public have a complete narrative of those shocking events. Our Special Despatches. THE INSURRECTION AT PARIS. London, Friday Evening, June 23. The storm has burst at last, and with the fury of the tompest. When I last wrote, I was under the impression that Paris was on the eve of great events. Fearfully have those forebodings been fulfilled. Blood has flowed like water in the streots of Paris?fifteen, some eay twenty thousand, human beings have fallen fighting in the streets, which ran red with gore. Since tbe massacre of St. Bartholomew, such a terrible slaughter has not been witnessed. All the fearful atrocities of ^ civil war have been perpetrated; and yet it is <lifH cult to abstainfrom shedding tears of admiration at the j heroic courago of tbo insurgents?equalled only by the daring intrepidity of tbe lads (mere boys) of the Oarde Mobile. Thq streets of Paris have witnessed more 1 deeds of heroism within the three days of June, than my pen can describe. It is one of the bloodiest, and yet most memorable, pages of French history?but an awful responsibility weighs upon somo persons, if, as is asserted, secret intrigues were in play; but I am inclined to tbink that it was but the bursting of what ' had long been preparing?the workmen had been deceived, many were starving. Da pain ou la mort! was the cry. Brave men, worthy of a nobler grave, and a better cause than that of civil war? One nation, at leaet, I am sure, will mingle its tears with your suffer- | ings, and uncover itselt respectfully before the tomb of the misguided victims of the massacre of Juno, 1848. They were mowed down by the guns of General n i_ izi? l.? 4 i,e|ab1? * 1,.., k,.? they also reaped a harvest of death, aud the slain on the r de of the military greatly exceeds that of the people. I Amongst tho slain are the venerablo Archbishop of Taris, who died in the mission of his Master, with the Woids of peace in his mouth. General Negrier, General Dreis, and a host of ether officers of high rank. The fighting commenced on Friday morning, and lasted till the Monday evening?bca?y artillery boomed along the Boulevards; it was even fouud necessary to mine the Clos do St. Lazarrc, before the insurgents Wtftild surrender. Curious enough, on the 23d, an insurrection broke ] out with great blood.-bed at Marseilles?barricades were J I erected; but the military carried the day. V And how will all this endf The depths of society in I ' France is stirred up from the very bottom, and it will j < take years to settle down again. These are wonderful I times we live in. The effect of this revolution in Lon- i | don was simply one of intense interest and oonversa' tion. England is perfectly tranquil. The revolution in Bohemia is completely put down. ; The Emperor of Aut-tria is still iu the Tyrol. 1 do not think he will live long. Berlin is still very unsettled, , though no new outbreak has occurred since tho storm- t ing of the arsenal. j The Danish war is in stain i/u >; no new engagement . baa taken place; but the Daues and Swedes have deter- > mined to resist against Germany to the utmost. The whole of the Veuetian territory, with the ex- | ' ception of Venice, is in the hands of the Austrians, and negotiations for peace are set on foot?the invdia- , tion of England has been accepted by tho Austrian , government. Italy has, however, appealed to France for help; but she is too much occupied just now at home. ! This Spanish question is still likely to prove a hard nut to the governmer<t, isturitz, as you are aware, was dis- . missed by Lord I'almerston. lest lie should impeach his ambassador. Isturitz arrived at .Vladridon the 2'2d, and the next day was closeted with Sotoinayor. Mean- j ; time, the Spanish government had caused along do- ' fence to be published, accusing Bulwer of all sorts of j J conspiracies against the Spanish government. Bulwer, | it seems, had a laisnn with the sister of Portal, oae of ; the leaders of the insurrection at Seville, a married woman, and his love for her has, It is said, led him astray. All tho English attaches hare been recalled from Madrid ; a consul alone remaining. This question is far from being settled. There Is a rumor in certain diplomatic circles, that France was inclined to side with Spain. A civil war is raging with great fury in Hungary. Enclosed I send you full and interesting details of the INSURRECTION Af PARIS. I Tranquillity is now momentarily restored.

Now that tills feaiful struggle in Taris is over, people , begin to wonder how it originated, and how it was pns I elble f<T the populnrc to withstand. for four days, one J of the moot disciplined armies in tlie world, commanded by nn cxperiei. ced Oem ral. Tbe following extract from the lett? r of a gentleman who witnessed the whole affair, and who is well versed in the politics of the day, is weithy of attention:? "Paris, Wednesday evening. " In the six numornblo days which have passed since the outbreak of the terrible insurrection, which has now. fortunately for the world, been suppressed, the passing events of the day were so numerous and so tilled with interest, that we had hardly time to do more than record them. Now that the struggle Is over, penpie are beginning to ask how It all came ahont, and what was the cause and origin or an insurrccrctlon which, for ferocity, obstinacy and length of endurance is unparalleled in the history of the world. From the del nils which you hnve nlr-ndy had ! of the arts of tlie insurgents, and fmin the tegular military plan on which the operations were earned on. it ' must be evident that the insurrection, so fur from being a spontaneous and inconsiderate movement on the part of Ignorant otirr/tm, was nn able and well- j concocted military movement, arranged aoeoriirig to 1 ] rule, carried out with steadiness and vigor, and the Whole progress of which shows that it was the work of a shrewd, intelligent. and experienced military leader. It Is also (julte clear that the Insurrection was a scheme , long arranged, and that when the insurgents commenced their rperntiong, every one knew where he was to take up his pait. what he was to do, and to whom he wns to look for orders. In the many j hundreds of barricades thrown up (luring the eventful night of the 2.1(1 of February, there Is not one which Is misplaced; there is not one which is useless, and not , one was forgotten. When the military came to attack , the insurgents, thry found, to their surprise, that in- ] stead of having to do with a few Isolated parties of ( ovrrim, fighting ffem street to street, they had to at- ; taek a regular line of works, rudely constructed, to he | 1 sure, but admirably constructed for their purpose, an I 1 J wA i-Jy E JVE I i>?ti>ndinff frnm tw\<nf *111 ll*o? ??w*l?? aih*. hi.If of Paris. So ably wore the points of defenco chosen, and so complete was the hue of barricades, that although the wholo was thrown up in one night, without the knowledge of tho inhabitants in general, and apparently without the knowledge of tho authorities, it was eufficlent, with an interior force, to keep 80,000 men. with 100,000 auxiliaries in the shape of National Guards, in check for four days. Not only was this the case, but it is now ascertained that at one time the insurrection was, as near as possible, gaining the yictory. It will be recollected that the insurgents, by their line of defense, secured the Pont St. Michel, and another bridge, which kept up the communication on both tanks of the Seine. On Saturday, when Gen. Oavaignac ordered the attack upon the barricades, in the neighborhood of the Place Maubert, he was surprised at the obstinacy of the defeuoe, and it was not till afterwards that be discovered that he had hit on tho the most important point in the lines ofthe insurgents. It was on the defence of that point that their communication between the two banks of the Seine depended, and when Gen. Cavaignac took it, he had already half defeated their adversaries. Some of the insurgents have since acknowledged that that attack completely deranged their plans. At the same time, when it was made, they were just preparing to concentrate 30,000 of their men to attack the Hotel de Ville, and they calculated that the Hotel de Villo being once in their power, the entire victory would soon follow, and sou e experienced military men think that in that opinion they were right, it must bo evident from all this, that the danger Paris was in was much greater than we were awaie of, and we may tbank Providence that we are not at the present moment delivered up to the tender mercies of the Socialists. There is another part of the subject which is very curious, and upon which it is to be hoped that the enquiries now making before the committee of the Na lion&l Assembly will.throw some light. You will have observed that General le Breton, in his speech in the Assembly last night, threw out mysterious hints of revelations made, of papers discovered, and of persons implicated, whose names he would not mention. You will have also observed that among the first acts of the committee was that of a circular addressed to the provincial authorities, calling upon them for copies of all telegraphic despatches, Sc.. sent to them by the government within the last ten days. Tho fact, as far as I can learn, is this The government was quite aware, for some days previously, that the lnRnrr?>f?t.inii var nhniif fn hrualr mif and \/i_ sister of War consequently gave orders for a fresh supply of troops beiug sent to the capital, which were to be transmitted to the military authorities in the provinces by telegraph. These orders, it is said, were never sent; and. as the telegraph is in the department of the Minister of the Interior, it remains with him to say why they were suppressed. Some of the insurgent prisoners do not hesitate to assert that they bad friends in the Government, who would have moved in their favor, had an opportunity occurred. This may account for the manner in which the insurgents were allowed to complete the barricades without interruption. It may also form an appropriate commentary on the threat thrown out by \1. Trelat, on Thursday, in the Assembly, when he hinted to the members, that in throwing out the bill for the repurchase of the railway, they might as well remember that the Jlteliers Nationaux were still debout. It is now beyond a doubt that at no period of the insurrection were any of the usual political cries used. The only inscriptions on the flags during the first two days were " Jlteliers A'ationaux," and " I)u travail ou Iamort" On the Sunday, to be sure, a more terrible inscription was to be seon on a few flags; as it appears that a flag is now in the possession of the National Assembly, on which are the words, " Vainqueurs lo Tillage I" " Vaincus l'incendie !" The people of Taris have made a greater escape than most of them imagine. The number of Parisians in custody yesterday afternoon was 0,500. They were all aware that the city had been placed in a state of siege, and on being taken prisoners they fully cxiected to be shot. The sign by which they recognized each other was a small ozier twig, which each kept concealed in his sleeve. The leader was known by his switch being in the shape of a pitchfork. The chiefs had med.tls called nonnerons, and the medal had a certain number of notches, according to the rank of the personage bearing it. It appears, besides, that there is no doubt that the insurgents bad a regular plan of government, that the names of the parties in the government was qusie settled, and that among them figured some names which have figured in high places since the revolution. The examination of the prisoners by the J uges d' i nstruction is going on with great rapidity. They are divided into different classes, according to the amount of their importance in the movement. One of the principal prisoners, M. de Flotte, was found to have in hie possession, a laisser poseer in Lamartine. and another in that of M. Louis Blano. Several letters from M. do Lamartine were seized at his house. The search for arms in all parts of Taris is going on IFI t ll (TVoat ar>i(uit V A Kniit iiAA otnn<l awma were found in a bouse in the Marche et Honore, and a great quantity of ammunition, fco , in several of the Hotels Garni*, in the same neighborhood.

The insurrection in Paris has been frightful indeed. The papers announce the number of killed and wounded at 85,000 ! Yot^may recollect that in March last I expressed an o^kon that France would not succeed in istablishing any kind of government without witness ng immense bloodshed; and I am now persuaded that the worst is not passed. In England and Ireland we are wonderfully quiet, and it is surprising what has become of the boasting demagogues who lately talked so loud and did so little, in Liverpool we have now no chartist movement what sver. Sundry " leaders" are still in durance vile, and it seems that their apprehension has restored something like quiet. A division took place in the House on Thursday night, on the West Indian colonies, with a majority of only fifteen for the Ministry. Prince de Joinville is with the ex-King, his father, at Dlaremont, dangerously ill with the liver complaint, rhe wife of the late Mr. Thom, the Inverary poet, lied on the 17th instant of typhus fever. The " Niagara," which left Boston on 14th Juno, at 1 P. M., reached Liverpool at 3 A. M. ontho 25th June, making the run in 10 days and 14 hours. In my next despatch I quite intend to announce to you the arrival of the " America!" It is my firm opinion that she will be here by noon on the 15th of July.

The disturbances expected in Paris yesterday, liave not taken place, but the danger is not yet at an end. Yesterday forenoon, a band of the workmen in the Ateliers Nationaux went in a body to the palace of the Luxembourg, and requested to be allowed to speak to the members of the Executive Government. M. Marie consented to receive a deputation of five delegates. The leader of the deputation announced himself as one of the invaders of the Assembly, upon which M. Marie refused to hear what tie had to say, but he listened attentively to the complaints of the four others. M. Marie then addressed Ihcm at some lcDgth, endeavoring to persuade them not to allow themselves to be led astray by dangerous and disorderly people, who wished to place them in a itate of rebellion against the government and againtt society. lie a^hureu incm ui me ^ouu inn*niiuus ui the government, which had their interest* and welfare lincerely at heart, and which was at that moment seriously considering wh?' oould be done for their good. The words of M Marie do not appear to have satisfied the deputation. On their return, they assured their com} anion* that they had nothing to expect, and that M Marie had called them slaves This caused a gr. a', fermentation. Cries of '?# hat Marie!'1 "Jl hat l\'ltttmhlee!11 '*A hat la Cornmission Executive!1' wore heard in all side*. They paraded the Hue du liar, and some if those in tho same neighborhood, singing in chorus 'A'ou* retltroni, nous reiteront," in allusion to their determination not to quit Paris. They then went to the Faubourg St. Antolnennd tho Faubourg St. Marceau. where the crowd greatly Increased. 111 tho evening they took up tlioir station on tho Dace de la Dastills*, where they sot up from time to time, tho cries of 1 Fire Napoleon!" l,Vive I'Emperevr!" ' A hat Marie!,1 'A'out retltroni." At one period it was feared that they would go towards the Assembly, but this they forLiii atcly did not do. I.ater at night,about half past eight, a body of persons, consisting of four or Hive i bourn ml persons, went towards the Hotel de Ville, and fn m thence to the Faubourg du Temple, for the purpose of joining the other party on the Placode Ilasttllc J his movement created a great deal of uneasiness, and additional military Were consequently called out, and kept under arms all night. TlIK l IOHTINa IN Till' STKKF.TS OF PARIS. Paris, Friday F.vening. June 23. When I wrote to you this morning, the gsnrr/t/r was beating In ovcry part of Paris, nnd the most alarming report* were circulated of the progress making t>y tno rioters. Barricades, we were told, had been thrown up, not as on three days of February, in one small district, but In different parts of the city, remote from each other, and so far isolated as to show that, the number of the consplritora niust be very formidable. As the best mode of judging of these matters, where practicable, Is by personal Inspection, I directed my steps towards the focus rf all disorders?the Porte St. Denis, I found the shops In the whole line of the Boulevard* all closed, the streets crowded with people anxious to know what was doing, the drums under the escort of strong pickets beating to arms, and strong bodies of National (luards gathering on the I'lace de la Bourse, the Boulevards, and the marie of the 2<1 Arrondlssement. On approaching the neighboihood of the .Port* St. Denis, I was surprised not ?o see a single soldier, or National (Juard; W YC IEW YORK, FRIDAY M but oil the other hand, 1 wan equally surprised to find several thoutands of tho conspirators tn pos.1eF.1lon of the whole of the district, and alreadystrongly entrenched in barricadei of the most formidable description. Across the BuuleTard. and quite close to tint Porte St. Denis, was an immense barricade, formed of I four or Are omnibuses, several carriages, a huge wagon, and paving stones taken from the streets, which wore tn n up for a considerable distance on both sides A little beyond the Rue St. Denis was another barricade, fully as formidable as the first, and composed of pretty much the same miscellaneous materials ; and still further on towards the Porte St Martin, was a third bar- ! rieade, not quite so large as the first, but still sufficient to be a powerful defence against a i nu/i Je main. The end of the Hue du Faubourg St. Denis was also closed up with a huge barricade, which prevented the approach ol' tn ops from the outskirts. Tne Rue St. Denis, the Hue Villeneuvo bourbon, the Rue de Clery, and the other streets abutting on the spot in possession of the conspirators, were similarly defended, and thousands of gainitta were industriously working with pikes and spades, tearing up the streets and adding to the defences. 'J he mere enumeration of these extensive works shows how much time must have been spent in their erection, and it is wonderful to think that the authorities, who had been forewarned of what was doing, auit who show so much alacrity in calling out troops when thore is no occasion fur them, should have allowed them to be completed without interruption So it is. however, und I mention the fact, without attempting to account for it, or to draw any inference. The barricades were defended by some hundreds of people in hlouies, of whom many were not urmed, or at least did not snow their arms. They had a great number of tri-colored Hags stuck upon tho top of the barricades, with the words "wflfe/i'ei* A'a/iflHuux" inscribed upon them, and some other words which 1 c uld not distinguish. Tho Porte I St. Denis, which van in the bauds of the conspirators, was decoerntcd with a black flag, and on the top of it wcru arranged heaps of paring stones, apparently for the purpose of being hurled upon the heads of those who might attack it. The whole scene was a very ourious and busy one. Kvery one seemed bent on completing the defences, and there was no appcaranco of alarm, anger, or any excitement, beyond that of their anxiety to complete their work. While this was going on, the alarm was suddenly given of the approach of the military. In tho distant part of ail the streets abutting upon the Porte St. Denis, dense columns of troops were to bo seen advancing. There was a sudden movement among the conspirators, a few of whom took to their heels, but the greater part of whom remained at their places. At the same moment. a strong column of infantry of the line, and of the Second Legion of the National Guard, were to be seen approaching from the direction of the Boulevard Poissonniere. It then became evident that the whole place was surrounded, and that the barricades were About to be attacked. I had just tin:e to get into tho Hue Villeneuve llourbon, when the attack commenced. The tiring began on the side of the conspirators, who discharged several rounds;the National Guard returned the fire with spirit, and a continued and sharp firing was kept upon both sides for about half an hour. In the street in whicli I was (Iluo Bourbon Villeneuve) a body of the fifth legion of the National Guard charged, and the spectators, who, like myself, were drawn there by curiosity, finding ourselves between the fire from the troops and the fire from tho conspirators, were glad to escape into tho portes cocheres, which the concierge* considerately opened, tu something less than half an hour the whole was over, and the barricades were taken. 1 am quite unable to say how many were killed undwounded; but the number must be considerable. Several fell at the very first discharge made by the troops of the line from the Boulevard I'oissenniere, and from the length of time the firing lasted, a good deal of mischief must have been done. It would i be a mistake to suppose that the conspirators are merely persons belonging to tho *9tellers Nationaux. There were a considerable number of shots fired at tho National Guards from,tbe windows of the houses all round. I saw several of the troops wounded, and 1 hear that some have been killed. The same thing happened in other places, and this is, perhaps, the worst feature of tho whole allair, as it shows that there are persons engaged in the conspiracy who have nothing to do with the Jlteliers Nationaur. I ought to have mentioned that along with the troops of the line who made the attack on the barricades from the Boulevard Poissonniere, there was a battery of artillery, which fired several rounds of grape. Besides what fell within my own view, there was a pood deal of fighting in the neighboring streets. In the Hue dc l'Kchequier a barricade was attacked by the National Guard, and several of the defenders of it were shot dead on the spot. In the Hue St. Martin and the neighborhood there was also a good deal of lighting. In other parts of the town similar scenes occurred. At the r&Iaia de Justice two barricades were erected, which were carried by the Garde Republicaine alter some hard fighting. At the 1'antheon there was : also some lighting, and no doubt we shall hear of fighting of which we have not yet got accouuts. The fol- j lowing are some particulars given in the second edition | Of Gallgnani't Messenger:? " Paris was thrown into consternation this morning, by a report that the workmen of the Jiteliers Nationaux bad broken out into open revolt, and constructed barricades at the l'ortes St. Martin and St. Denis. We regret to say that this report was soon confirmed. The generate was beaten for the National Guards, who turned out, at first rather slowly, but as the danger became more apparent, the numbers increased rapidly. The barricades were defended by about six or seven hundred men, chiefly armed with muskets; but the faubourgs of St. Martin and St. Denis were filled with groups of workmen, most of whom appeared to be waiting for a signal to join the insurgents. The barricades were formed in the usual way, with public carriages which had been turned over, and paving stones and iron railings, which had been torn down. We are informed that the post of the Donne Nouvelle was attacked by tho insurgents, who attempted to disarm it, but met with a corageous resistance, and, after exchanging a few shots, fled. At about eleven o'clock several other barricades had been erected, and others were erecting; but as the National Guards and troops of the line were arriving rapidly and chargi ng upon the groups, it was hoped that the further ! construction of barricades would be prevented. At j hall-past'twelve a body of National Guards came down the rue d'Aboukir, aud at the corner, were fired at by a j paity of the people. They immediately returned it, and several men wei e kills d and wounded. The people then \ rushed forward in force, and the National Guard were obliged to give way. At the corner of the rue du Clery i a similary scene took place; the National Guards, however. held their ground, and forced the people to (iy. Our reporter saw one National Guard wounded, though not seriously. About one o'clock a smart lire of musketry was opened by the troops on tho barricades erected at tho l'ortes St. Martin and St. Denis, which was at first j warmly ro'urncd by tho people; but after a few more discharges from tho military, the fire of the insurgents slackened, and orders were given to carry the barricades at the point of the bayonet, which was donn | in gallant style. A great number were killed and j wounded, in the attack at those points; but four i of the barricades were carried in succession. Ju*t at this moment a battery of artillery arrived on the spot, and was placed ill a position to command them At the Hotel de Ville nothing in the shape of a colli- j sion had taken place Tho place was occupied by a largo body of troops and strong bodies of the National Guards, placed en erhellon in all the streets leading to ! it, so that any attempt to raise barricades would have | been immediately prevented. Tho National Guards ! in that quarter had mustered in very largo numbers. ' , n ,1 ., ?r...t In k? o ? I ...I 1... <>... .I_? ! I ...... ........... ... ... ............ ..

Several arrest* were made of persons uttering *e- i ditinus cries, and one workman. earTying a ting belonging to the llrlirra Xnlinnaux. wan stopped by tho National (iuards, and his Jlag taken from him. \t tha Pnlais do Justice two barricades were formed, which were attacked by the National (iuards. and taken at the point, of the bayonet. A great number of the deferdors of those barricades have boon made pri- | goners." The executive government mot this morning at tbo Palace of tho Luxembourg. anil has boon sitting 01 jiervianence oror sinre. 'i'ho prosldont of thn National Assembly joined them goon nt'ter 10 o'clock, and It was at otice arranged that the Minister/if War.lloneral ( avaignac. should be invested d'urgenet with the 1 chief ei mil.and of all tho troops of the line and other military forces in tho department of the Seine. He at once accepted, but on condition that he should lie allowed to take nil the steps of a military nature which he thought proper, without Interference on the part of the civil power. I alsh hear that General Clement I Thomas has again been placed in the chief command of the National (iunrd. Kona o' proceedings in the Nation! 1 Assembly were looked to with great interest to-day, I and you will see from the subjoined report thnt the I alarming state of I'aris was several times alluded to in , the course of the sitting M. Senard, the President of ' the Assembly, read a report from the military authori- | ties, in which it was stated that all the barricades had been taken, anil that the situation of tho city was rasiiiranle. General l.e Breton proposed that some of the members should accompany the military Into the disturbed districts for the purpose of ascertaining from the people themselves the nature ef their complaints; but the motion was unanimously rejected. Several members, however, anil among others M Bonjeau, M. Jules Kavrt, and others, went to tho headquarters of General Cavaignac, and seven general*, who are members of the Assembly, went also to tender their assistance to the general. By the latest account from tho Faubourg St. Denis and Faubourg St.. Antoiue, the whole of that district is completely in the hands of the troops, and ttie conspirators have disappeared. The black tlag, which was exhibited on the top of the l'orto St. Denis, has been taken, and carried to the National Assembly, where it is deposited in the Salle des Conferences. The words inscrihed upon It are ' /.? travail ou la mart " In the quartier St. Jaques several barricades were erecti d. which were taken by the troops. Two officers, besides men. have been killed in thnt quarter. Avast number of conspirators kliavn been taken prisoners in all parts of the city. In the course of the afternoon a deputation from thj hlnvsm of July, to the number of lf>00, waited upon the President to offer their services for tho defenou of the National Assembly. Two officers of thn ex-Garde Hepuhlieaine (Caussldii re'g cicatlon) havo been arrested In the act of endeavoring to Induce a large body of nuvrirrt to march and attack the National Assembly. They are now prisoners in the cell attached to tho hall of tho Assembly. I have just beard that a body of the insurgents made IRK ] ORNING, JULY 14, 184 I an attack on a pout in the It no Jocipiclnt, which wis iicii|)lf(l hy tlio Giirile Mobile.

It is impossible to say whether the affair is over or j not. A litnvy thunder-storm has for the moment driven b"th troops and conspirators into planus of shelter, and the streets are pretty clear; but great uupichensions are entertained for to-night. '1'he conspiracy is a very formidable one, from tbciwiuousu nuinh -r, as well as from the desperate character, of those engaged in it. and great fears are entertained of another rising In the c ourse of this niirlit. Paris has the whole of this diiy had the appearance of a besieged placo. The mob is very much exa-pernted at its defeat, and threats have been heard of pillage anil burning Fear may, perhaps, exaggerate the danger, and It is te be hoped that it does so: but the rumor at present is, that tho insurgents of the nioruiug Uneaten to turn out at night with torches, and to c sin the object in which they have hitherto failed by endeavoring to dostroy the eity. Such is the position of Paris at the moment while I w rite them lines 1Iai.k-past Six o'Ci.ock.?ThingH are worse than ever. The cannon arc to be heard roaring in the Faubourg St. Antoine. The executive government having received most nlarming reports of the state of Paris, has determined on going in a body to the barricades. M. de Lamurtinc, accompanied by his colleagues in the Directory, and the Ministers, quitted the National Assembly at 4)4 for tho Faubourg St. Antoine. in the staff of General (,'avnignac. It nppears that tho insurrection. which was put down in tho Faubourg, has broken out wilh still greater violence in the neighborhood of the Hotel de Vilie and the Place de Grevo. The Assembly has declared itself en pelmanence. The whole of the troops whieh surrounded the hall of the Assembly having been removed to the plaeo where the fighting is going on, tho Assembly lias adjourned till eight o'clock this evening, it not being considered any longer safe for t hem so remain. If the affair bo not put down to night, it is the general belief that Paris to-morrow will be in the hands of the mob. Among the persons killed is M. Avrial, banker and merchant of Paris, and among those mortally wounded is M. Thayer, the colonel of the 1st battalion of the 2d legion, and one of tho richest proprietors in Paris. Distant and heavy cannonading is to be heard, just as I close my letter. The executive government, attended by a heavy body of troops, has just passed. In the Due de la Cite there is a huge barricade in tho hands of the insurgents, which is defended by a large body of the mob, with a considerable number of lto publican Guards,_yho have joined the people. CONTIM'ED FIGHTING IN I'ARIS. Pa am. Saturday morning. When I wroto to you yesterday evening, I stated that the fighting, put down at the Porte St. Denis, and that neighborhood, had extended in the direction of thu Faubourg St. Antoine. on the one aide of the river, and the Faubourg St. Marceau, on the other, and that the most serious apprehensions were entertained for the night. The night has now passed, and unhappily the result has immeasurably surpassed the worst anticipations of the greatest alarmists. This umieppy ciiv iin? ucm. uuriiiK mm oigoieen Hours, given up to the most frightful carnage, and nt the moment while I am writing these lines the roar of artillery and the continued roll of musketry is incessant. Since four o'clock this morning this has boon the oase, and as there is. hitherto, not the slightest appearance of a oessation of hostilities on either side. God only knows how it is all to end. The part of the city In which the fighting is is at present going on is on the left hank of the river, from which we on the right bank are entirely cut olT, the whole of tho bridges being strictly guarded, and no one allowed to pass under any pretence. The information, therefore, which I aui able to give, must, on this account, he sometimes confuted. and sometimes, perhaps, contradictory, as I am obliged to pick it up from those who, in the courso of their military duties, have penetrated into the districts now in the hantls of the populace. The insurrection of the presuut day is totally different from that of which the result was the revolution of February. In February the insurrection, though it broke out in the same part of the city as the present, the Porto St. Denis, spread towards, and was in fact almost confined to, the portion of Paris occupied by the mercantile and richer classes. The quarter of the Tuileries, the liourse, tho Faubourg St. Ilonore, the Chausee d'Autin. and the rich outskirts of all that grrat district, were the scenes of the revolt. It was, in tact, an insurrection got up by a haurgtoitic dissatisfied with their government, with the determination of getting reform, und if it turned out afterwards into a republican revolution, the result was one certainly not intended by those who were the authors and chief actors in it. Tho present insurrection is quite different. it is confined entirely to the working classes, to the 10V 000 nuvritrt who have for some months been employed in the Ateliers Nationaux, aud who, being now threatened with deprivation of that employment?their only means of support, at a period when all tho ordinary sources of labour are destroyed?are driven by the desperation of hunger Into* rebellion. No doubt there are among these wretched labourers some who have other and far morn culpable views, and who urge them on to their destruction; but the real combatants are the laboring classes, and their hope and object is the fallacious one of bettering their position. Vestvrday the only flags shown were those of Los Ateliers Nationaux, with the inscription of ''Le Irerait on la mortThere were very tew party cries. In the whole course of the day the cry oi?"Vive Napoleon," "Vive Henry V;" or even "Vive la ltepublique," was very little to be heard on the side of the insurgents. The great cry was that of *Lc trnvaii a Paris," so that whatever may arise ultimately from the present insurrection, the cry for bread and the dread of starvation was its real origin. It must not. however, be supposed that there were no ori<>8 but those for bread and labor. The exasperation of tbc people naturally led them to execrate those whom they considered the authors of their evils, and occasionally "A has les Pouvoir Kxecutlf," "A bas l'Assemblee Nationals," "A bas Marie" (who is peculiar unpopular at the present moment, from a false report which has got among the insurgents, that he called the ourrirrs slaves) were to lie heard, mixed with cries "Vive la Rcpublique rouge," and "Vive barbes." It is singular how different i'arls is to-day from what it whs in February, lu February the fighting was. as 1 have already said, in the richer districts, while the Faubourg of St. Antoine and the other portions of the capital occupied by the laboring classes were perfectly quiet, and apparently indifferent as to the result. The tjuartier Latin and the Faubourg of St. Marceau were also lighting on that occasion. Today the fighting is entirely in the Faubourg St.Autoine. the Faubourg St. Michel, the Faubourg St. Marceau, and the Quartier St. Jacques, or iu other words, the poorest districts of the capital. The distant roar of cannon and musketry which I now hear is from the Rue de la llarpe, the Rue St. Jacques, and the innumerable aud close streets in the same neighborhood, which are barricaded in every direction, and which it has defied tiie (10,000 troop* of tbo linn and the numberless National tiuard of Paris to capture, although they have been at it for the last twelve hours. All the other parts of the city are perfectly quiet, and take no part whatever in the contest. I shall now prooeed to describe the scenes which occurred lifter the despatch of my packet last night, a* ; correctly as the numerous aud coufused details which | reach lue will allow. When 1 closed my despatch of last night, little was ! known beyond tbe fact that the barricades of the ' l'< rtes St. Denis ami St. Martin had been taken, and that the insurgents had retired to the more remote (Uftrieta "t Ike capital where it was feared?and, as it has turned out. feared correctly?that they would niake a further stand. The llrst act of hostilities is thus described bv a Paris paper:? "The first act < f hostility was an attempt of the insurgents to disarm the post of tliu boulevard bonne j Nouvelle. against which some shots were fired; but the i lire was returned by (ho (iunrd. and the assailants, many of wh-m were boys, fled in confusion. Up to 1 nearly twelve o'clock, tlie in-urgent* wore entirely I masters of all (lie barricade* which they had erected, i for neither National Guards, nor (lardes Mobile, nor j troops of the line bad yet inude their appearance. At ; about twelve, some detachments of National (iuards ; arrived by the I ue St. Mai till. They were received > with shots from the barricades, aud returned the tire. Soon afterward* a feeble detachment of the '?M and ath 1 legions advanced towards the barricade of the Porte St. Denis. Tliey were also received with a discharge of muskets. -Out of humanity, most of the National (iuards, in returning tbe lire, pointed the r inu-ket* in such a wsy as not to hit the insurgents, hoping that they might lie brought to a parley; but this humane proceeding only rendered the Insurgents more furious, and produced another discharge, by which some of the National (Iuards were killed or wounded. They then fired in earnest; but being very Inferior in number to the force of the barricade, they were disarmed, and in this state were again fired upon by some of the rioters from the windows of the houses fn which were station) d the lenders, giving signals to their infatuated partisans At this critical moment a large force of National (iuards csnio up. and. making a gallant attack on tho barri rade. curried It almost Immediately. This success was followed by an attack upon the barriendo St. Martin. On the appearance of this battalion t ho insurgents, taking it for a regiment of the line, and hoping to ahnke tho fidelity of the r? gnlar troopa. raised a shout of Vire la Lignu !" hut on fiuding their mistake most of them tied. There remained only Seven men and two women, who fought desperately One of the men, who held a ttag in his hand.was the tirst to fire upon the National Guards: his companions followed his example, and the National Guards returned the fire. The man who carried the Hag fell dead. One of the females, a young woman neatly dressed, picked up the Hag. and leaping over the liarrt ricadc. rushed toward the National Guards, uttering language of provocation. Although the Are continued from the barricade, the National tluards, fearing to injure this female. humanely abstained for some time from returning it, aud exhorted her to withdraw. Their exhortations, however, were Tain, ami at length self-prcgert alien compelled I hem to fire, and as the woman was in front of the barricade a sliotTeached her and she was killed. The other female then advanced, took the flag and began to throw stones at the National Guards, The Hre from the barricade had become feeble, but several shots were fired frsm the sides, and from the windows of houses and the National Guards, In returning the fire, killed the second female. At last only one man remained ut the barricade, hut he kept up a constant discharge One of the National Guards left the ranks, sword in hand, and rushing to the barricade turned aside the musket of this man just as he was bout to fire sgain, and took him prisoner The capture of the barricade did not put an end to the oomhat A galling fire was poured upon the National Guards \ . * I EM A 8. ? from detached parties of tlio Insurgent*. and from the windows of the houael of which they hud tuton fomlhl? iufcMF.sinn 'J'ho number of killed on lhi< nninf i-i estimated at about twenty on both sides.

A Mnall body of N'atlounl Guards coming up at that moment, a fire was opened upon them from behind ti?u barricades, nnd about ton immediately fell. \uclher small party of about eighty National (Jutrds of the second legion ran to the assistance of their comrade*; but; the Are from the barricades and from the nelghboining houses was ho severe that tliey, iu thoir turn, were obliged to retire, leaviug twenty uf their men on the spot. immediately after these lamentable events a largo force of troops of theline. cavalry und Infantry .arrived by the boulevards, and made repeated charges to clear tlie streets. Several pieces of artillery were also plao- . ed on the boulevards, so as to have the entire ring* of ! tliem if necessary. The Hotel do Vllle and the environs were strongly guarded, and detachments of the National Ouarile were stationed at the corners of most of the principal streets of Paris, to prevent the formation of new barricades. General de l.amorioiere was with the troops of tho line who came to the boulevards, nnd took an active part in all the operations, lie was accompanied by one of tbe representatives of the peo- 1 pie, said to be M. Degousee, on horseback. A terrible combat took place betwoen three and four o'clock in the Hue du Faubourg Poissonnlere between the ltue Bellrfond and the Hue Lafayette, where strong barricades had been raised In this place tho insurgents were very numerous, and had placed themselves under tlie command of a person dressed as an officer of the National Guard. They were attacked by the 7th ' legion of the Garde Mobile, anil tlio 7th Light Infantry, and a numerous party of the National Guard. Tho in- I Mil-gents having been called upon, without effect, to I surrender, the engagement commenced and lasieil 1 twenty minutes, To tho platoons of the infantry tho i rioters responded with a sharp Are, not only from tho ' barricades, but from the neighboring streets. At length j the barricades were taken, but not until the troops bad | sustained a severe loss. Tlie commanding officer of the 1 National Guard (M.'i buyer) was wounded, aud a great many men and officers of the Garde Mobile and the ro| gular army were killed. The following account is from dalignani's Meisevgtr:? "By lour o'cloek.jthe National Guards, tho Garde Mobile, and the troops of the line,succeeded in completely clearing tho Boulevards from tlie Porte St. Martin, and in driving the insurgents towards the Uastile. Meanwhile, the beating of the generate continued. Barricades continued to I o formed in tho faubourgs St. Denis and St. Martin, and a battalion of the Mobile, and a regiment of the line, in the ranks of which wore several National Guards, went to take possession of tlieni At the Darrlure Rochechouart. a barricade was of the line. In the ranks of the National Guards, at ! various points, there were a gacat number of workmen j not in uniform. At half-past two o'clock, the Rue St. Jacques was barricaded. At the little bridge of the Hotel Dieu there whs a sharp fusillade, and several soldiers of the line were killed. ' The Insurgents still held their ground at three I o'clock, but their dofence begau to be disorganized, whilst the troops continued to display great courage. : A general otiicer, accompanied by a numerous staff ? among whom was a representative of the people?galloped up the Boulevard des Italiens, followed by a squadron of dragoons. At ths Rue Michiodicre several horses fell, owing to the pavement being torn up; but only half-a-dozen soldiers were thrown, and not I one, it is believed, was serirusly hurt. At about halfI past three o'clock orders were given to all the troops near the National Assembly to charge their arms, and and the post of the bridge of La Concorde was strengthened. "By four o'clock the National Guards of tho Banlieu were summonded. and those of Bercy had arived. "At five o'clock the firing continued in several places, and was very strong lu the quarter St. Jacques, and I the Rue St. Jean, in the Kabourg St. Martin. Avery ' heavy rain, which fell between 4 and 6 o'clock, drove I a great many of the curious from the street. About 0 o'clock the members of executive government, accom; panicd by M. Caussldiere and some representatives, ' went up the Boulevards. The insurgeuts were driven ! from the I'lace de la Sorbonne. "At six o'clock several batteries of artillery went towards tho Faubourg Sainst Antoine, it being stated that a new action had broken out. About this time I M. Clement Thomas, who, although he bad given in | his resignation as cominander-in-chief of the National Guard, had thought it his duty in such grave circumstunces? no successor being appointed?to take tho 1 command, was wounded in an attack, by two bails in | i tho thigh, and carried to the Tuileries for surgical asi sistance. The following order of the day was posted on | the walls between b nnil 6 o'clock:? By order of tbo President of (lie National Assembly and the I Executive government.

"From six o'olook till ten. the accounts of the operations of the troops and the movements of the insurgents were very contradictory. We believe, however, that at I.a Chapelle tho troops were still vngaged In attacks , upon barricades. There had been much fighting near I ; the Rue l.nfayetto, but the troops became masters of i the ground towards the evening The reports of tho 1 number of persons killed aro also contradictory. M.

The following proclamation has been addressed by the Mayor of Paris to the mayors of the urron- , dissemeuts.

Saint et fruteroite, liepreseutauvu ?f tlie people, Mayor of Paris, A. MARRAST. Saturday, Mid day. It is impossible to give you anything likean adequate description of Paris to-day Front early dawn tho work of destruction I as iteen going on without one tnnment'a Interruption: hut all communication with the disturbed quarters being cut off. the most contradictory reports reach us of what iR taking place. All that we know is, that the wltolo of tho Faubourg St. Marceau. the Quartier St Jacques, is entirely In the hands of the insurgents; that the military have Iteen attacking it all day. and that to the present time, they have not succeeded in their efforts to dislodge tne defenders of the barricades. The roar of cannon, which has been inct.-saut since break of day, still continues with dreadful monotony. The loss of life must be enormous: but tor the present, ull that we can say of it is, that in almost every street you tnay see tho relics of this filghful battle in the shape of dead and wounded being carried hack to their homes. It is thought i ' that the insurgents have gained greatly in numbers I ! during the night. They certainly have gained In tho I I strength of their post I ion* and In the quantity of arm*.

I refer you fop particular* to the in count of the proceeding* in the National Assembly, which are subjoined. Small parlies of the member* of the National Assembly have passed, escorted by cavalry, announcing the dissolution of the executive government, and calling upon the people to take up arms iu defence of their lives, their families, and their property. They are loudly cheered wherever tkoy show theinielves Two o'Ckook.?tlenernl favaignao sent a flag of truce to the insurgents, to inform them that If they would yield before'j o'clock, indemnity would bo given to all parties concerned; but that alter that hour he would shell the barricades mortars having been sent for for thnt purpose The firing still goes on as before, so that the negotiation has apparently failed It is said that the actual number ol Insurgent* in the Qu&rtier St Jacques is upwards of .'10.000, the whole of whom are arniod and actually fighting. Besides these, there are more thau 100 000 ready to join them, and only waiting for the slightest opportunity to do so. A serious attack was attempted about two hour* ago on the Hotel do Ville, by a large party of iu*urgeuts from the Faubourg St. Antoine. At onetime great apprehensions were entertained for the result, but for- , tunately the military stationed around the Hotel da Ville, succeeded in repelling the attack.

It look* like a city which bad been deserted by it* inhabitant*, and oocupied by a hostile army. It is frightful to think that one of the places seized upon by the insurgents is the Hotel Dieu, the great hospital of Paris, which is occupied by some thousands of sick, who are dying of sheer fright.amidst the sceno of desolation going on around them. The hospital was in the possession of tho insurgents for some hours, but whithin the last hour it has been retaken. STOPPAGE OK THE NORTHERN RAILWAY. No train has sturted to-day by the Northern Hallway. The mails are taken up at St. Denis, and it has been announced that for the present tlie line I* stopped. Several attacks were made in the course of last night and this morning by tbe insurgents on the Paris Knibarcadcre of the railway, but hitherto without success. The Houon line is still open, and strong bodies of troops are guarding the station and the prinoipal points of attack. At eight o'clock a inan in a blouse, mounted on a splendid black horse, arrived at a gallop on tho Boulevard des Italiens. coming from tho side of the Madeleine. He went up to a picket of the National Guard and the Garde Mobile, stationed at the corner of the Hue Grange Bateliore, discharged two pistols on the ranks, and went off as faBt as ho could. A National Guard fired at him. without bitting him.? Immediately a oolonel of Cuirassiers, accompanied by oue of his men. pursued him. Cries of u Stop him 1 stop him !" were heard from all parts. At the entrance of the Place Vendome the National Guard presented bayonets. The horse being wounded fell. The man was then arrested, and led to tbe post of the Ktat Major. The discharge of his two pistols fortunately hurt no one. Very large detachments of National Guards from the environs and farther points are arriving in the capitnl. The wounds of General Bedeau, M. Clement Thomas, and M. Domes are not severe; but they are, however, confined to their beds. It is hoped that the life of M. Bixio will be saved M. Bixio was Miuister Plenipotentiary of the Republic at Turin, and a representative of tbe people. M. Ainadeo Tliayer has died of his wounds. He was the son-in-law of General Uertrand, the friend of Napoleon. It is said that the number of killed is upwards of 6.000. The 24th Regiment alone has* lost 200 men. The 29th Regiment has suffered severely. A party coming from Amiens to the assistance of the insurgents has been stopped at St. Denis, and disarmed. Large bodies of National Guards have arrived from Rouen. Prince Pierre Bonaparte's horse was shot under him.

The barricades in the t^uiirLier St. Jncijues have been taken, after having been bombarded for four hours.
