It will b? rem .uiber cu.tbat, rushing through the masses, tlie bayonets, and isbowers ot halt;1, a female seised him about the neck, railed biui her father, and demanded tbat they should rpare him. In all this she was successful. Ni t c ntont with this, she secreted hiui, and by her daily labor si:],ported him, until it was a ife for him to mate h's apperrance and gain Irs own subsistence ; this he dd as toon as he could; and finding himself in good | business. last week he reciprocated the protection ho had received, by making this young girl bis wife. The affair has created a good d-al of interest ; and they 1 at least will have cause to be reminded of the rerolu- ' tion and some of its fruits. Captain B?rtrand. who addressed the letter before referred to by me, to the commander of the National Ouards, which drew a challenge from the latter, and which was settled by fence swords, has just fought a duel with Captam ? -(Joudchaux-ofthe Vitirnal Guard,and badly lacerated him with his sword ; lie is the son of the faithful, who went with Napoleou to St. Helena, and remained true to him to his death,?his name is Napoleon Bertrande, and he seems to have little fear of exposing his own life. " i The letter of the Mayor of Paris, declining his salary as Mayor, which went the rounds of the press, proves to be fictitious, and has created a good deal of amuse- 1 ment ; but as he reported the constitution giving a salary as Representative and Mayor to the same person, if he happoned to hold the two offices, as is the casein fact,it has its effect, and may produce good results. though an clfort is making to detect the culprit. The press and caricatures are terribly powerful organs at this time in Paris ; and no man is strong enough to stand lip against them, and no people feel ridicule more keenly than the Fiench. or are less aide to stand against it. Two elections of Representatives are soon to take plsce in Paris, to fill the vacancies occasioned by the resignations of I.ouis .Napoleon Bonaparte and Thiers, who whs elected for the Seine Inferior. I think the former will he elected, unless he refuses the use of bis name. A caricature is in circulation representing "Napoieon as paying. *1 am me nepjew 01 my uii^io ;" j and another under it. representing Prince de Jolnvillj : ae saying. " I em the uncle of my nephew and both are asking for power. The wounded hare been removed f-om the Palace of the Tuileries ; and a strong effort is being made to in- : -dure the Assembly to hold their sessions there, ns the present chamber is very inconvenient : but there is ! much opposition to the measure, and it is uow said that the Palace is to be used by the President. The officers of the republic undot stand but imperfect- ! ly the to* ling of the French people. No man short of a crow in d head, or a talent like that of Bonaparte, will ever be permitted to sit himself dowu on the sofas of the palaces. Indeed, these magnificent palaces and their rich and elegant furniture, are great stumblingblocks in the path ol a French republic, and especially J in that of the lending officers of the republic ; they -ought to pray to be delivered from temptation, for to I touch them would be as fatal to them as eating the for- j hidden fruit wt s to poor Eve. Neither the revolution pot the Assembly havo de- : vtloped any such extraordinary talent us was develop- I d during the struggles of the first revolution. I.amar -tine lied a few weefcs rf glory : but both his power and eloqnenco seem to have evaporated for the present, at. 1 least. Yet 1 have no doubt that as much talent exists | in Frsnce now as at any former period ; but the struggle has rot yet been sufficiently severe to develops it These is evidently many men of very tine talents la ' tbc Assembly. although no leading mind lias yot been exhibited, for the accomplishment of extraordinary deeds, good or bad Ledru Itollin's last speech gave evidence that he would be a man of extraordinary power in extraordinary circumstances.

That is sufficient for the practice, lie says : " The President of the Couucil is elected by ballot in the National Assembly by a majority ; and ho chooses Lis colleagues, and in case of a disagreement between the Ministers and the Assemhly. the latter is dissolved."

There is great confusion aud irregularity in the mails, and the public mind is so excited, that it is exceedingly difficult, frequt ntly, to deturmino what degree of oredit can be glten to fpeoiiie information. What I see, I am sure of; beyond that, there iralways some uncertainty i n my twu mind, at least, and much more is necessary not to mislead others. 1. therefore, always exnr >s doubt ingly what 1 do not consider to bo quite well authenticated. The flr?t uews from Prague, aires the iro eminent a decided victory ; l>ut the second, left ilio ] units lighting. and tbu result very doubtful, aud so it remain* this morning; but one thing appear* to b< rcrtain, and tbat is,that a great many have been killed and wounded, and that the exasperation is terrible, r giving ai.d asking little quarter. At this moment tlio e riij'jjrl is bmiicg under uiy wiudow to cull out tile Nationul Guards; so I suppose there is another imeute, end lam going out to see the aspect which the city presents. For a day or two. there have appeared no o signs of au approaching movement; but 1 do not up- t prebend any grave event at this mont. If the French would only Iala one-hulf us much as the Fuglisb, we should better know what was going to happen ; but w then, perhaps, they wuu d do us the huglish do, deceive j, by doing nothing. It is only by certain indications that any one can judge of the future, or foresee events, in Taris, or Fiance?it is done before a stranger would e he aware that 11 movement had taken place.

The Knglisli are much strouger " men. generally, than the French, hut much loss adroit, w Indeed, 1 regard the men of America, the Uuiled t States.

"j My Discvvyits after the Kapjtel?The Stale of Excite- ai meat?The Conversation?The Conduct of Men?The w Jlrticle from the Press of this Morning. ^ The troops have responded to the rappel, aud ten b< thousand, at least, now surround the National As P1 D sembly, and are stationed about at the bridge and on the Place dt la Concorde, which is thereby connected p with the Palace of the Assembly. The dragoons and tl lancers of the line arc out in great force, as well as the ^ infantry of the National Guards. The occasion of u it has been large assemblies of men this morning about ' ' the Assembly, at the Luxembourg, on the Boulevards, at tbe Mies Saint Denis and .Saint Martin, and m?uy rj other principal points In the city. I have passed two II nours in walking round among me crowd, listening to J* their conversation!),and speaking with thoiu ol'different \ opinions and in different conditions. 1 asked one fr merchant in rue Riroli, what was the cause of the agi- ^ tation, he to!d me not to bo aUruiod?there was no n dangt r. I answered him I was not. Are ynu Knglish, said he? "No. I am an American." "Oh!"said he," I ft understand now." 'J'hen he said that tne people wore n d ssatistled with the National Assembly. and that there ?' was much mere excitement against it in the country o than in I'aris. 1 asked what they wanted ? He said, a< "generally Louis Napoleon " "Koran Kmpernr," sai i I? "No, for a Presidenl." "Then they want a Republio," said 1? "Yes. but they want him at ihe head of it; but a great many," said ho "want llrnri Cinq " Then,turn- -f' ing his bead up side down frequently, ho said : "Tbo French charge so? I ain Swi?s.?wo and ynu have a good Republic." So bidding him good morning, whom J had never seen, and never expect to see again, I went N into the crowd; and then I listened to their donuncia- e tionscf the Government and the Assembly. They said, "they do nothing but murder the citizens ami spend their money; they steal the publio money, idle away 11 their time, disgrace France in the eyes of foreign na- f< tions; and now they are attempting to deprive the poo- w pie of the liberty of the press and the right of electing their President (referring to what took placo in the * bureaux yesterday); and because we complain, they tl shoot us down. In six months." said they, "we shall ^ not havo bread, and there will be no employment for the labcrcrf." The agitation was extreme among tho 11 I loutri, and they trembled, and their lips quevered. and a tl.eir looks evinced a resolution that no one can mistake c the import wf. who knows much of the Fren:h character. Nik nld the Assembly deprive the people of tho n right to choose a President, it would be attributed to ^ tholr fear of the election of Louis ilonaparto. And u should ihe President be shackled at the same timo as 1 proposed by the Ministerof Justice in connexion with " the glowing dissatisfaction against the acts of tho As- " sembly and Executive, any one can foresee one result. P W hat others may follow in its train,no one can foroseo. v 1 he Napoln n RcpiiA/i'tan of this morning bus fur its v mctto The People are sole sovereigns; her llopreseu- c, tatives are our clerks."

The city is now guarded at every corner of every important street. Krom two to four hundred thousand troops are under arms, livery man is called out. I found the troops, in large numbers, yiiig thia morning upon the pavements, asleep. All ihe squares and important positions are Dili d with theui ; while large bodies, on foot and on horseback, ire pur.'.djng throughout the city I met several members of the National Assembly, with their robes of office, ind their ilotpeaux in their hands, walking down th? urge streets from the Assembly, surrounded by i nine ose crowds crying " Fine la National Jltstmhlie!" I'hey were followed hy men In blue and all other colors, dun ring them ; nnil they were chcerod also, as they lasted, by the masses of -pectators. I met also ttaneral avalgriiio, riding.

Kvcry shop In the city is shut; even in th s >art ot it. which is the most quiet, the stores ah .tit me iuvo been shut since my return, in conseqwonea of the leinoustiutIon just made upon the Champs Blystts and icinity.

The members of the Assembly have ronounced the highest culogiunis upon their conuct. Previous to this rising, so sudden, a delegation f the ./Heliers Natianavx went to M. Marie, and demanded certain concessions, which he refused firmly to rant; and that is said to have hastened the terrible emonstration which is now being made. There rem to be few cries on the part of the insurgents? ccosionally a has PJissemblet Nationalr et Executive, 'ira le Hepubtique Democratique, Vice Napoleon, ienri, Cinq, and Hashes, indicating a good many piries as having united.

(Everything is now military? , large numbers of the insurgents have capitulated ? and, although others are lighting heroically, I will ven1 tiiro to hope, that to morrow will make a n wish of this civil war. and that the city will bo restored to order immediately. At least, it now looks as it thorough etft> j ciency was beiug practised, and I judge of to-morrow i by the work of to day. Violent opposition was made ) by a small pot lion of the Assembly to the manner of voting the executive and all the ministers out of otticv, in oue or two moments after the resolution was introduced; but it was carried by an immense majority, and it will bare au immense influence upon tho insurgents and (be public generally.

I'aku, June 25, 1848 Fui tktr Particular! of thit Terrikit Struggle, now Rngin ? j as Fiercely at Erer. I awoko this morning, ut the sound of the gem rale, j beating under my window, in parading through the streets. Oh, what a sound, in a city so beautiful and ! populous as Paris ; and what a thought, that war is J still raging between its inhabitants ; and what a re' sponstbillty upon the h?ads of thoso who have brought It about! The account of yesterday's proceedings, Imperfect, of course, now lies before me. What a recital of bloodshed and war?of heroic daring, self-sacrifice, and madness. Vet all the laws of war appear to be 1 preserved?no murders appear to follow, after men are made prisoners. Where the insurgents have been victorious. they do not appear to have been blood-thirsty ; but should the war continue, there is no comprehend ing to what extremities it may lead. Two addresses of Gen. Cavaignac are published, In which he says every active citizen belongs to tho Na- ! tional Guard?and whoever exposes himself to publio view, withouthis ranks, is wanting In his public duties, ! in presence of the dangers of the country. Ills second proclamation is a highly complimentary address to the Guard Mobile, for their gallantry, and i 1 discipline, and good conduct. This Is the body of men whom some person, in one of tho lloston papers, 1 ; described as being composed of the most vile of the Pa1 risian population. A body of youDg men. who have exposed their lives, whenever their country was in dan- j . g?r, in Paris and out of it ; and whose conduct has been characterised by the most noble bearing ; and in ! tbis terrible struggle, where hundreds of their number havealrtady fallen, their conduct bus drawn out an ' especial commendation from tlieir General?General | Cavaignac- signing himself 'Chief of the Kxecutlve Power." The Guard Mobile and the troops of the line have suflercd more severely than the National < iuard*. The two former are composed of men without families; designed especially to meet the exigencies of war ; and I presume that they have beeu assigned, more generally, to the posts of the greatest danger. Cannou were heard all day yesterday, as well as small arms, and by the account of this morning, the worst of our anticipated tears have been realized The insurgents appi ar to have fought with a desperation and fearlessness tlint is seldom equalled ; and the cannon have been freely employed, to destroy their barricades, and tho'r places of retreat and security. No . rannon bare yet l>cen captured from the troops by them ? I nit two bodies of the Guards have been compelled to surrender ; one of about sixty, and another of about three hundred ; and in tho latter instance, several of the troop are reported to have been shot ; but this, i think, need* coir Urination. It was said last evening, that insurgents taken under arms, after the city had been declared to be in a stale of siige. and they had been summoned to lay | down their arms, had been shot. I do not see that confirmed this morning, and I doubt whether it will be put j n practice t.. any c"o- id. r.>l.le extent. In a few in* ( stances, men crying Vivt Hr.mi Cinq, and exciting to insurrection, have been shot on tho spot. The insurgents carry on theirdi'ipeariT, " i'iir rn liaivailtant"? " J)u Iraiail ! mi la ianrl"?': tin yain on ,'a mart." An individual, calling himself yi sterday Count de Nathonne, and an agent of Henri Cinq, was shot on the spot, yesterday afternoon, and last evening, the tight appears to have become more and more desperate; and to pave extended ova r a larger spane. The cannonade was terrific last night, and Indicated all tho horrors of war.

They hare decreed that sixty of their number shall be censtautly with the troops, guards,&c., and expo-ed to alt the dangers of the moment. Indeed, notwithstanding the wonderfully strong feeling against the Kxecutire, on the part of those who are sustaining the government, they all rally with enthusiasm to the support of the Rvp tblic. As a man and his sou were fighting side by side, yesterday, the latter was shot dead; the father took up the body and carried it to his house, and, as he entered, n second son left instantly to tako his place; and in a minute or two afterwards the father returned, and both were present at the carrying of the barricade. Home women sited tears when they speak of their friends, who ar? absent, and as they know, in battle; but it is very seldom they there is no screaming?no la mentation?no notation?no display. real or artifiolal; nil feel the presence of the danger, .and the necessity of meeting It; nod the right which the country has to the serviced of each man. But American ladies, who are less accustomed to scenes of excitement and danger. could uot so easily. 1 till k, control their emotions in such an hour ot trial; indeed, it sometimes seems almost attended with an absence of that deep feeling which animates the bosom of American ladies. Bat the French shrink front the idea of death less than Americans; the dead lire In glory and immortality, here, at least, in France; their bodies are buried in beautiful grounds; their monuments are of stone, elegantly wrought and carved, and dressed and ornamented, and entwined with wreaths of flowers, and furnished wi'h the most beautiful furniture for tha house of tbe dead; the stranger and the friend alike visit these beautiful resting places, and almost every Sabbath day is devoted to it visit to these tombs, and to replenishing them with whatever is necessary to give them freshness and beauty; tbelr busts and pictures are taken, and their rooms furnished with them; and if lliey were distinguished, or died In tha service of their country, their paintings, statues, busts, minaturcs. he., he., are found in the principal public places I In Paris. The widows and children of all who die in | the service of the country, are the adopted of the nation; and are always well provided for. Already, at this moment, the treasury Is supplying the families of ' all those who have fallen, who ask ft; men feet, tbere. fern, sure that they will leave no family behind to suffer for the want of their labor. Then there is a tone of feeling upon this subject, which does not exist in our country: whether it is aided by their ardent patriotism, their religious views, or by tbe circumstances to which I bare referred, or tofall combined, 1 cannot know; hut that it exists I have no doubt General Cnvnignnc has addressed proclamations to the insurgents, the army. tlie guard, and people, this morning, which indicate. I thiuk, that he is a man of good feeling. good sense, and a good degree of efficiency. He will bombard that part of the city where the insurgents are entrenched, if he cannot expel them without it; indeed, I am informed at this moment, that the bombardment of the Temple, so called, has commenced. It is true also, that many rebels, who have tu rn taken fighting and in arms, have been shot according to laws existing in this country, applicable to a place in a state of seige. Indeed, the issue is Immense. and the many tremble; that the city will be snckid should the rebels succeed, there Is little doubt; me rxHFpt-i'Hiinn iiak arnveu at trial fflatB when I think nil the National < iuard anil officers of the itoTBrnotent would he compelled to escape on fast horsea, ffhouhl the insurgents conquer them. and that thia la well underp i ocd Troopn continue to arrive, and I am informed at thia moment OH o'clock), that many peraena have arrive I from Rouen and other plarea. to aaalfft the Insurgents^ but thia I do not believe, because thev can have no meHiiff, unleaa by the capture of the railroads, or they come on foot, neither of which ia very probable. I am hnppy to say that I think the government are onductmic the defence of the city admirably, and that they arc moat faithfully seconded by the army, guards, nnd inhabitants: and that the republic will issue from thia terrible ordeal, doubly dear to the people; an I that tin y wilt all determine hereafter, not to oolloot in the heart of I'ariff. an .'Itelier Satinnale of 16'>.')00 id ? men, living at the expense of the State, and to dictate tcrme of peace or war to the government.

Th?

With the mater'a's of the buildings. destroyed by the cannon, in the night time, the Insurgents hare built forts, irom behind which lo fire on the National tiuard.
