TH ? NO. 5153. Interesting and Graphic Accounts of tiik TERRIBLE EVENTS, from OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. Paris, June 29,1843. the insurrection. A volume would not suffice to give you an adequate report of the events of the last most eventful week, unparalleled by anything which has been witnessed here, since the dreadful scenes of the great revolution. Before I enter into any details, let me tell you in a word, that 40,000 men, composetTcliiefly of the laboring classes, rose in arms, with a determination to push the conflict to the death?to make war to the knife?upon the entire property, education, intelligence, and respectability of Paris; and if the attempt had been made a few weeks sooner, it would inevitably have been successful. Hannilv for hu inanity and civilization, within afew weeks, some 12,000 or 14,000 regular troops have been collected in the capital, and to the presence of these is mainly owing the salvation of Paris. I do not mean to detract from the merit of the civic troops; but alone, they could not have sustained the conflict There are 10,000 killed and wounded on both aides, upon the least estimate; but it is possible that that may be below the mark. I heard the Prefect of Police affirm to-day, that there were 10,000 killed and 200,000 wounded?perhaps the truth may lie between, and probably 20,000are put horsdu combat. It is impossible at present to give you a connected narrative of events in the order of time. I will endeavor to do this, however, by the next mail. In the meanwhile I give you such of the more prominent events as cannot fail to interest your readers. I do not give you any report of the money market, for there is, in fact, none?the Bourse has been closed for the last week. The insurrection embraced the Faubourg St. Martin, the Faubourg du Temple, and the Faubourg St. Antoine, on the right bank of the Seine. On the left bank it embraced the Pantheon, the Rue St. Jacques, the Rue de la Cite, and the approaches of the Pont St. Michel, the Place Maubert, and the Pont de l'Hotel Dieu. Thus it embraced the two eidea of the Seine, and spreading in parallel lines, comprised nearly two-thirds of Paris. The means of attack and defence had been oombined with admirable foresight?the end was evidently first to surround the Hotel de Ville, and advance progres" sively en the two banks of tho river. Independently of the barricades constructed with diabolical art, tbe insurgents had'opened communications in all tbe houses in Faubourg St. Antoine, so as to form one vast and almost impregnable citadel. This point appeared to be the centre of the operations of the rebels, and it was from thence that barbarism threatened to spread over France, and to aim a mortal blow at civilisation. The Faubourn St. Jacques formed the left wing of the insurrection; the right wing extended by the Iluee de la Planche, Mibray, Saint Denis, Saint Martin, lie., to the east of Paris, to a great distanoe. The Faubourg St. Antoine. situated behind, became a sort f reserve. These combinations were not the eCTeot of ehance; but, on the contrary, tne result of a vast plan' The chiefs of the insurrection hoped that attacks would be simultaneously directed against all parts at onee, hich they could not only be able more easily to defeat, but which giving them partial success, would attract numbers to join them. The means of repression employed by Oen. Cavalgnac.who, on the exigency, was made Chief Military Commander, and to a bom, on the resignation of the Executive Commission, was deputed the whole exeou tive power, were prompt and energetio, and very ably concerted. He confided the execution of them to Generals Bedeau, Lamorielere. and Damesure, who were to act against the centre and two extremities of the insurgents, to prevent their extending their ground of operations. The first combat took place at the Portes St. Denis . and St. Martin. The energy with which the National Guard made this attack, had the happiest influence on the success of the plan of operations. Gen I.amoriciere came up with his division and supported them, and Generals Bedeau and Damesure attacked simultaneously in the Place Cambral and the Pont St. Michel. in the evening of Friday. General Bedeau had cleared the Quuy St. .Michel from the Petit Pont, and the entrance of the Hue St. Jacques and the Hue de la Harpe. On this side the insurrection was now concentrated in the envitons of the Pantheon, and the quartler Marcosu. In taking the latt of these positions, Gen Bedeau was wounded, and replaced by Gen. Dnvlvier. On the r'ght bank the insurgents held obstinately the Faubourg Poissonniere, la Cnapelle, St. Denis ana all the exterior Boulevards, from La Chapelle to the Faubourg St Antoine Gen. Duvlvier, In taking ine command, marcneu 10 the Hotel de Ville. which was the aim of the insurgents, and which they had surrounded on all sides It was necessary, first, to obtain possession of the adjacent streets from the Kne Planche-Mlbray to the Rues Rambuteau and Tixandererie. At the entrance of the Rue Planche-Mibray, on the side of the Pont au Charge, an enormous barricade was raised, which was in rain attempted, several times, to be carried by the bayonet. It was necessary to employ cannon; and the night, from Friday to .Saturday, was passed before It could be taken as well as those of the Rue Rambuteau, and the adjacent streets. Once the approaches to the Hotel de Ville gained, but at immense loss, Gen. Duvivler commenced an attack on the streets which adjoin the church St. Gervais and the Rue St. Antoine. Here the struggle was long and bloody; the housos conld only be taken one by one ; and when they were entered, they were found empty, as the insurgents had withdrawn by the secret communications they had Bade, as I have before stated. The artillery continued their work of destruction during the whole < f Saturday and the night of Saturday, till Sunday On the morning of the 2ftth. the troops bad advanced to the Rue St. Antoine. At 7 o'clock. Gen Duvlvier was wounded, and Gen. Perrot took the command During the whole of Suuhday. he pushed his opeiations towards the Place de la Basttle, where he was 10 form a junction with Gen. I-amoriciere. which he ofb eted in the evening. On the left bank, Gen Damesure made an attack equally vigorous During ail the night of the 23il .lunn. the firing did not cease in the Place de la Sorbonne. the Rue du Ores, the Hue dee Mnthnrins and the Place t'ambral ; and on the morning of the 24th the Garde Mobile retook the offensive in all thequartiers. About lOo'ciock, the Rue St. Jacqius was completely cleared, and Gen. Damesure ascended it with a column. At the same time.t ol Tb<m?s directed all his efforts towards the Pantheon, where a grcnt body of insurgents were intrenched All the avenues to tlijs building were barricaded; but the Uurrir Mobile knew no obstacles. The 1st, 2d. 10th. and 10th battalions of the Mobile, two battalions of the 11th and 24th l.ight Infantry, with a detachment of the Republican Guard, rivalled each other In ardor, and fought around the Tantheon. Gen. Dsmesure again ascended the Ituo St. Jacques. The barricades surrounding the Place du Pantheon were cannonaded and soon taken ; this was effected partly by the occupation of the F.roie <io Droit by the Garde. Mobile, which enabled t Pi Am to command the place by their fire No sooner was the Pantheon taken, than Gen. Damesure pursued the Insurgents towards the Ecole Pnlyteehniquc. while Gen Thomas attacked the barricade of the Rue dca Fosses St Jacques, and pushed on towards the Quart lor Mouffetard. There, at the corner of the Rue St. Genevieve, a very serious fight occurred The insurgents occupied the terrace of the College Henri V . and a formidable battery Gen Damesure was dangerously wounded at this barricade, and gave up the command to ( ol. Thomas Order was now, however, re-established In all the Quartlers of the Rue St Jsqnes, the Place de la Sorbonne, and the Place dn Pantheon. The combat spread to the left, towards the Place Manbsrt. nnd ceased towards the Pantheon. On the evening of the 21th, Gen. Urea took the command of the division of Gen. Damesure. The night passed quietly On the 2oth. Gen llrea made a reconnaissance of t he Rue Mouffetard. and took all arms from the suspected houses. He then occupied the Barracks do la Giirstne. which the insurgents bad tried to set on Are lie confided the guard of the 12th arrondissement tot ha 1st battalion of the Garde Mobile, and. putting himself at the head of two battalions of Infantry of the line, of two pieces of artillery, and smno detachments of the .Mobile Gen. Iliaa descended the Rue St. Jacques, and inarched on the Rarriere Fontaitieblesu, about 2300 insurgents (?n arriving. and imagining that all were as honorable as himself, he had the Imprudence to treat, with some of the chiefs of the Insurgents, who admitted him. accompanied by his aid-de camp, without the barrier. Scarcely was the |Geneial In the power of the Insurgeqts. when tliey tnieatened to shoot him if the troops uld not Immediately lay down their arms. This proposition was received as it deserved to he ('ol 'I homes Immediately forwarded an aid-do camp to the commander-in-chief; but before his return he heard that ^ the General ami his sld de-ramp had been shot. This redoubled tbo determination and envrgy of th# troops; E NE NEV and In a comparative)/ short time, seven barricades, of which enclosed the insurgents and which formed a sit strong fortress, were cannonaded and carried. The th barrier was soon occupied by the troops, and order was Dr again restored. The night was tranquil Vi From this moment the Quartiers St. Jacques and be Mouffetard were in the power of the troops bo General Lamoriciere bad on bis side fought vigorous- th< lv; after having carried the redoubtable positions of toi the heights of the Faubourg Poissenniere, Montmartre, and La Cbapelle, from tbe evening of the 23th. he had be made dispositions to carry the Faubourg du Temple, ga and operate afterwards on the loft wing of the Fan- pr< bcurg St. Antoine. On the 20th, in the morning, after evi having cannonaded the first barricades, which were at fee tbe entrance of the faubourg on the side of the oanal, G* he carried them by the bayonet,and advanced beyond clx tbe barrier; thence be returned to the side of the Faubourg St A ntoine. The insurgent* had in the night zei made repeated efforts to retaku the barrioades of tho 1? Place de la Bastille, in front of the Ruo St. Antoine. t* : Tbe artillery of the National Guards and of tbe army of posted there, bad kept up their fire all night. tei | At 10 o'clock in tbe morning of the 2tHU, the insur- rel ! gents sent a deputation to the Assembly, offering to Tt capitulate on the terms of retaining their arras and nil ho their rights as citisens. These terms were rejected, pei j and one hour was given thom to surrender unoun- fir 1 ditionally. They did so surrenddr, and the troops vt were in tbe act of entering to occupy the place, when, ot by some accident a shot was fired?treason was suspected on each side, and the coiubat was renewed with 1 increased vigor and determination. Three b&tterios th wbich had been erected before tho quartier, began a th< bombardment of tbe place, and after an obstinate re- rej aistance if six hours, the insurgents retired; some b< < laid down their arms, and others fled with their arms so; l into tbe country behind. Of these latter, some took 1 up a position at Pere la Chaise, and some at Belleville; die but they were soon driven out, after much slaughter by thi tbe dragcons and infantry, and those among thein ' tri who have not surrendered themselves are now scatter- | a li ; cu auuut in me ueiun anu Tillages. en The insurrection broke out. as I have stated, on the tti 23d. lit the Porte St. Denis, where a large body of men tin without arms, carrying banners of the atelier* nation- th< aux, the clubs, ai d some corporations, appeared. Two Fi j barricades were now made with paving stonos. and. as St if by uiagic. all the men were armed with muskets. st The inaurrcotion was pretty evidently announced the he evening before. of There was a meeting of about 3000 men on thoPlaco iii| du Panthoou, and all appointed to meet on the morrow, wi Still the executive commission did not appear to see in| the danger; for I amjassured there were not 10.000 troops an in Paris. The National (luards alone had to face the lit l insurgents, during the greater part of the day on the in: 23d. It was they, as I have stated, who first attacked w< the barricades at the Porte St. Denis, in the Cite, and the Boulevard du Temple. ph in the evening of the Hume day, in the Quartier St. yo Jacques, two companies of the line, who fired on a bar- be ricade, were immediately surrounded by the people in da a narrow street, and obliged to retire almost by uapi- wt , tulation, and promising not to fight any more. The Be ; barracks of a buttalion of the Ouard Mobile, who had bu ] received no orders, were invested by an immense *h; crowd. tol A battalion of the line, detached in the Quartier St. tb Antoiue. guarding the Mairie of the Palace lloyaie, was of attacked on all sides; fired on from the houses, which ed I were occupied by the insurgents, and after! having at j fired away all their cartridges without receiving any hi I reinforcement, were obliged to capitulate. The insur! gents took possession of the Mairie, and took from it a six ; great quantity of arms and ammunition. A battalion sh ot the Ouard Mobile, who attacked the barricade Saint Q< Severin. heroically but rashly lost three hundred men, tal ; and retired on the Pont St. Michel, oovered with blood rh I and wounds. ho Gen. Cavaignnc was at this time invosted with the tin ; command in-cbief, by the National Assembly, and rid from that time tbe attack on the insurgents and de- shi ! fence of the capital were directed with a unity, preol- coi ; sion, and vigor, of which wo before have bad no exam- i ] pie: called, for itmust be acknowledged by aninsurrec- 1 tioD, which, until now. has never been equalled in its ha I conduct by such determination aud military skill. By ca | hist xcelleut airaDgenients of which we haveabnve given a ? rsur/,c? by the confidence inspired by his patriotism rnl and the loyalty of his character?the Oeneral has ob- ! Ct tained a victory, and eaved Paris from pillage and in- : bo ceudiaritm. I lep The insurrection, at its commencement, announoed I ed itself in a terrible aspect.and the combinations arrayed 1 of by its chiefs gave it a developement tbe most redoubt- 11 able. The centre, as 1 have said, advancod by the Rue bu j St. Antonie. and took up a strong position at Saint tui Gervais, with an intention of gaining the Place de 1' co Hotel de Ville. The left wing operated in twooolumns, ge by the Rue St. Jacques and the Rue Victor, extending an iuto the Cite to the Hotel Dieu, and endeavoring to co force the Po'-rt .st. Michel and the Pont au Change th T ho oppositions of G*n. Cavaignae were at length nu taken 1 he troops, the National Guard, the Guard de Mobile, regardless of their lives, which they freely, and, I regret to.-uy. numerously sacrificed, obtained posses- ets sion of St. Severin, the Place Maubert, and the Rue St. ha I Victor. an | Al IDC i tinilit.*uu uu? wi vnn imwb uiuuuj cuui* up , bats of these cruel days took place. A battalion of | of tbc Guard Mobile, cut up by the fire of the ad- ha | joining houses, took refuge in the Ecole do dri ; Droit Succor* arrived with artillery, when a nu- of I meruua body, in the uuiform of the National Guard, rbl | and who were by the troop* taken to be auxiliaries, ar- pi i rivi d. They were the 12th legion of the National j | Guard, who bad revolted. They profited bjr the error n?I into which the troop* had been led, by making a mur- da derou* discharge en tlieui. committing grea( slaughter, aig and. in the confusion, taking a piece of cannon. The > ll troop* now rc-foimed. and retook the cannon and drove ble the revolted party into the Pantheon, which had been t*l frepared by the insurgent* with all mean* of defence. 22< cannot describe ail the episodes, all the phase* of this pi* murderous affair, in which the artillery only secured an a conquest over those who might havu been called an heroes in a better cause. tbi I cannot give you, for want of time, all the details of cot the bloody affair* of the t'los St. Luaare, the Kaubourg Tb du T? mple. and the Faubourg St. Antoine. On these nt points, several sanguinary conflicts took place, which spt ended in the discomfiture of the insurgents, and in Tv which the National Guard* of the departments much at distinguished themselves. on The last series of all these combats ot four days had of i for its theatre the Kaubourg St. Antoine, converted, mo I a* I bave before said, into an slmost impregnable oita- tal del, whose numerous population of operatives, faua- Jai ticlr.ed by the chief* of the insurrection, and by ambl- f 1 tious demagogues who thirsted for power, appeared to up devote itself to victory or exteruiiiiatiou. Thisquar- wil tor was attack* d by tbrec vast columns, supported by of. numerous artillery, wboss continuous thu uders for an six hours shook thu foundations of the niighborhood, 1<? and resounded through ail Paris. ric Whilst they were engaged thus at thi entrance of < the faubourg, and on the boulevard, the Insurgents ca entrenched themselves behind the caual. The chiefs let had well calculated that this would be a defence like I the/Vmse of a citadel. Behind this, they had the rcvo- afl lntioniaed commune of Belleville, which served them ov as a point d'opput. and covered their retreat Driven mi at last to the barriers, they defended themselves on an many point* of tbc wall* of Paris with obstinacy. They tb bad made loop hole* in these walls, formed barricades, hit snil u ntested every foot of ground until they were *b driven, as I have before stated, from all their holds, wl into the adjacent points of Beliuvillo and Perela Chaise, sei and fiom thence Into the country. Tbc picture I bave drawn is far from complete. tio Never as 1 have said, did civil war yich as this?so re- op doubtable, so violent, so ferocious, so obstinate, so Tf bloody--break out in France.

Of these it has been stated there were ci twenty-two thousand in the atriitrt nationaux. All may not have joined, but the cruelties that have been ci committed may probably be attributed to these critni- n nals by profession. si After the statement I have made as to the chiefs of is tliis movement, including with them the I'rofeneur de. *1 barricade!, ot whom I have spoken above, It is not to be d wondered at that these places were so vast and well (1 conceived. It has struck the generals with surprise n thai in re, where the war of barricades is so well kuowu, T it should on this occasion have been carried to such a periection as to re<|tiire the most skilful and energetic pi menus employed in a regulsr siege to reduce them and that only after fsoir dsys and night* of most deter- V mined fight The barricade* th. y had most time to a| construct were erected regularly, aa fortifications, and pi cannon-proof.

( The city of Brooklyn, for several daya paat, haa in a atate of great excitement, in consequence of the , reported defalcation of Tbomaa liegeman, formerly a clerk in the Saving* Hank of that oily, and hie sudden disappearance aa soon a a the fraud waa detected. He 1 had beeu dismissed from the bunk Rome two yearn ainco, ' in consequence of his having been found gambling in thia city, up to which time he had sustained,to all outward appearance, an irreproachable character. Since that tiuie he haa been living in good atyle, and not until the 6th instant waa the fraud detected. and then by hia brother, one of the clerk* in the Long Ulanil Bank. It appear* that some thousand* of dollar* were kept in that bank that depositor* might at any time obtain their depoaita ; the account* of which being made up, ahowed a deficiency of about $115,000. which had been taken by Thomua liegeman. There are many who have suffered by hia practice* of fraud, aa well aa the Saving* Bank, in many inatance* he having mado false entries on the ledger ; for inatance, a man making a depoait of $10. he would enter It upon the ledger aa $100, and pocket $90. Again, ho was guilty of receiving deposits, putting thorn into hia own pocket, and giving the depoaitor a bank book without the knowledge of tire officers of the bank; one instance of which, was $1000. which lie received from , an Irishman, and kept for his own uses in this way. The fact was known to very few persons, and would, probably, have been kept still for some time to come, but for his sudden disappearance. On the morning lie left the city, he was Heen by a gentleman who bad gome business with him, and who called upon him for some papers then in his possesion He stated that he waa then in a great hurry, but if he would call at his residence the following morning, at nine o'clock, be would give them to him. The gentleman called, when he was informed by Mrs. liegeman that her husbaud lrud been very unexpectedly called to Aibauy the day befoic. and she could not tell at what time he would return. This sudden departure was whispered around the city, and the fact soon become known that be had committed a gross fraud upou the Saviugs Bank. At the same lime ho held thjesituation in the Saving* Bank, he was alaoemployed in the Long Island Bank aa an assistant clerk, from which he was dismissed at the same time, but subsequently rc-etnployed, in consequence of the supposition that ho had , eutirely left off his habits of gambling. He was, however, again dismissed from that institution some ten day* since, in consequence of having i been seen ou one of the avenue* of this city with a splendid span of horses, and. as the officer* of J , the bank supposed, was probably spending more money ' : than be was legitimately making. Though tho bank I baa sustained this loss, it is yet perfectly sound, hav- 1 IDg ruujti Jivo.vw in ?u?vi ??""? bunking institution* in tint State. The family of tho defaulter enjoy* a high reputation ; bin father has hold many important stations of trust, ami lit ntill one of the principal offieera of, the Long Island Bank So 1 great was the public regard for this young man that despite his adverse politics, he was unanimously chosen clerk to the ( barter convention of that city, for which that convention is still indebted to him some ?200. He has left an interesting family of a wife and three children, to smart under the disgrace thus brought upon tin m by a husband anc father. The public sympathy in their behalf ia very much excited ; indeed, the whole society of Brooklyn lias received a severe shock by this unexpected event. It is not known whither he has gone, and his family are in the greatest distressin consequence of his disgraceful conduct.

No 80 William street, ha- I ving bven discovered to be on fire by policeman Letta, of the 2d ward. The alarm was given immediately, which brought the aid rf the Bremen, who went to work with great rapidity, extinguishing the tlaines, with but little damage, the Arc having been kept ex-. I cluaively to the room where it originated, amongst some empty boxes. The store where the Are ocourred, 1 was occupied by Le Cal, Bouland & Co., importers of I dry goods, situated over tho extensive drug store of Thomas!k Maxwell. The dry goods were omniderably j damaged by water, as was likewise the goods in the I drugstore. The poliee arrangement was admirable, as i in tact it is, at all Ares, as they take possession ol all ! tbr property and guard the doors, no that llileves find I it almost impossible to steal. However, just as the Are | was extingiii-hed, a fellow was detected with a lot of j brushes in his pocket, behaving slipped in under the garb of a 11 renin 11, holding tho hose; on tils being dis- j covered, he was taken Into custody and convoyed to the station house. Kirk.?The alarm of Arc last evening about 11 1 o'clock, proceeded from a junk shop situated at the corner of Madison and James street. It was said to j have originated from some powder or other coinbu-ti- j ble substance left carolossly in the shop.

On the contrary. Mr. Chandor denies having made any such representation*, or ever receiving any money from Mr A for safe keening: but as to the jewelry, that Mr. raid ho bought for $72. and produces a bill re- i celpted by Mr. Afuer. or by tho name ho wont by, i signed Eisner.
