The municipal elections in France are jus1 clobing, and they have excited a good deal of interest, as ttiey are very important, and it is the first experiment of the kind which ever took place in France. Il lias Keen destructive fn the insnrurentH and the party of insurgents : and probably the tm. pressions of th recent offences in Paris have driven the voters' 1o 6elect almost the most rigid men, in many instances, against free institutions. The Girondist journals declare tiiat those elect, ed are monarchists; but I suppose the truth is,that they are substantial men, who were monarchists before the revolution, but who have fallen in with the new order of things. When radicalism degenerates into anurchy i.nd insurrection, it will drive men into the ranks of their opponents. The press is generally very much dissatisfied with the vote ot the Assembly, which still maintains the injunction upon the eleven suppressed journals,and do not seem willing to have the removal of the injunction postponed till the new law shall have been enacted. They regard the responsibility ae now changed from Gen. Cavaignuc to the Assembly, and a body ot the printers have waited upon the members who espoused their cause in the Assembly, to thank them. Galignani's journal of to-day, in noticing the translation of your article, into French, in the Constitutional, says the invention of your machine is of French origin, and has Deen aaopica ?y you. i give you mis lntortnation that you may put him and his renders right upon the subject. J believe the English are more jealous ol Americans than of tire French, if possible. After the English have spent some $">,000,000 in fitting our their armament of 70,000 men for Ireland, they say that u constable and-50 men fired upon and whipped the whole Irish force, an army of 4,000 or 5,000. If this is so, they got horribly frightened for nothing, and have spent a good deal of money that they need. The truth is, that little is generally known of the actual transactions, because the English press are all concerned to repeat the same story to keep down the rebellion at nome ; hut yet there is little doubt that there lias been an utter failure lo accomplish any grand purirose, or to make any firm resistance to their Kngish oppressor; and there never will he, till the Irish adopt a system ot action commensurate with the work they have to accomplish. With the exception of one or two small matters, there have been no disturbances in France during: the municipal elections; und there has generally been a pretty full vote. Provisions are plenty and cheap, comparatively?dear, compared with our cpuntry ?and the new crop is bounteous Nothing is iieuru now ?> me ucn'ci 01 uiseuse in potatoes, 11 appears, in Ireland. All the foreign news will be found in my former letters, giving facts as they exist down to the latest moment of news in Paris. Observer. Paris, August 3,1818. The JV Movement in Hungary?Proclamation of the King of Prussia?ItiEf ects. There is no longer any doubt that Hungary may loin in fully to the support of Austria in the Italian war. and that 10,000 to r>0,000 troops are now on their march to strengthen Radetzky. What considerations have changed the purposes of Hungary do not fully appear; but it is said that Austria stimulated the Sdave to fight the Hungarians,and that Hungary, to buy her peace against insurrec. tion, has consented to forward her troops to Italy. When the I'ussians were concentrating their forces upon the Prulh, the Hungarian minister, M. de Kossuth, called upon the country for troops, and an army of 300,000 men was grunted by a spontaneous movement ot the people and the autho ities. J tut Hungary is situated between the mlluences of 1Tm?I1 sad Vienna, and with the Croatians and {Servianspressing thein, under the countenance of both Itussiaand Vienna, probably the Hungarians iound their situation very critical, and upon an agreement to disarm the insurrection, Hungary ? has quite probably ngreed to assist Vienna in Italy. Hungary is tending to liberal principles, and has been in favor ot tue independence ot Italy; and this new movement has created a great deal of surprise and sorrow among the J.tiropean republicans, because it adds gr-utly' to the Italian struggle, Hiid renders almost certain her subjugation or ihe interference of foreign powers. The King of Piussia has published the following proclamation to the army and the people:? ' The actual direction" of tue uflitir? of Germany l ave been con tided to a man of the empire, to fortify the unity cf the common country. I have pronounced In f:i>ur of His Highness, the Arch-Duke John not only because tbis ptincewaHmy personal friend but become 1 e bad acquired a name gloriou) in war and in peace Prussia knows that the peace of Germany in its ? wii peace; Prussia knows how much influence Germany has in the proved valor of the j Prussian troops. It knows that the destinies of Germany depend principally upon its faithful sword. In congruence, it will pledge its power to protect eftica- \ ciougly and < nevgetically, with all of its brothers in | Germany, the liberty and independence of the German nation Tor the purposes common to Germany. Soldiers, whenever the Prussian troops will come to I act for the German cause, and submit, acoording to my order, to His Koyal Highness, the Arch-Duke I John, you will preserve intact the glory of Prussian I valor and discipline. FREDERIC WILLIAM." j As the Prussian king is still on his throne, j 1 think this proclamation setjles the question of | power. It notv appeals not improbable to me, that the king entered into the armistice with Den- | mark, with the understanding that his general should refuse 10 si<m it, nod that the whole matter should be referred to the German empire, and that that power should reject the terms of the armistice, ana assume the war, and probably protect the king ajgainst his own subjects, and secure to him his tnrnne. It is incredicle that the king would acquiesce in the disobedience of orders, and defiance of his general, much less join linn in the position he has taken, unless there had been an understanding. Resides, why did the king enter into an armistice, if he had no power to render it binding, or to compel his generals to obey his order . It is all a gnnir, as is the whole diplomacy of Europe, in which falsehood and treachery are among the prominent characteristics. Observer Paris, Aug. 2, 1HI8. (Ireat Financial Debate?Capitalists cfeiire to escape Taxation?Sj'itch of the Minister. Yesterday, an important debate was fully opened upon a ineusure most vital for France?to wit, its revenues, and the sources thereof; and the Minister performed his duty nhly, in maintaining the project of the government: it was the same project which Thiers referred to and denounced ia his rci?ort upon the p osition of M. l'roudhon, and whieli drew down upon him tiie response of General Cnvnignac. Among other resonrces for revenue, the government proj>oscs to tax money, due on mortgages, which here draws an interest ?f five per cent, and which, in the French technicalities, is called *')>r?tri hv/>othiraim." The committee to whom thi x proposition was submitted, has reported sixteen to fourteen against the measure; and the wealth of both France and England (the latter having loans in France n,-on mortgages) have urrf-t: d thi me;,.- re, and hrouplit all their power to l>' r upon :he government nnd Assembly in opposing it. T.sno is taxed, and yet. in rents or culture, it will not average more than iliree per cent. It is opposed upon the ground that it is an attack upon property?that it oppresses capital?thnt in opp.essing capital, it injures property?and that in the oppression of capital nnd property, the rctourers of labor and consumption are diminished, and the poor sulTt.r. This is the argument. To tine the Minister of f inance re, plied?"thai the law proposed had been violently assailed: and lor that reaeon, lie should the more lirmJv deiend it; nnd thnt lie would make known fully to the Assembly his pe?=ent and inlure intentions. This law difters essentially tirm ary former one proved," si id the Minister. "and wc have hem told that the TepnhiK* would kill property, or property, the republic (proposition of M J'roudhon); hut that he wished to establish the republic upon a rmpectlfor property ; that it live simply, and that it shall not resemble the monarchy ; that he woald never ultnch a grand importance to forms, and had not learned all his lessons of finance since the ' 24th of February : that the present disarrangement was the nc tCsSary i t suit of the great changes in the goverriurnt, nod the condition in which the retmblie found the'treasury; thnt tlic budget for 1949 would reach all the capital which hud escaped taxation 1141 to th:s tim-; that he had the j E NE' MORNING EDr unhappiness to inform the Assembly that lie should maintain the old and the new imposts in p with the expectation of dating thein thereafter; that he had proposed to assess one per cent upon the 5 per cent income, and that, after 1849, he expected to derive 50,000,000f. from one-half of the c ! wealth of Trance, which, at that moment, did 1 I not pay one sous?((treat movement and approbation from the left) ; that he intended to bring for- l' ward some measures of imposts upon salt and n fish, and aorne u|*on labor, and which the agita- j tion had hitherto prevented; t. at he would not have obtained a loan, nor appealed to credit, if he v had not thought that the impost would be voted, C i ..?A ik?? tko.

A deficit has been spoKen of; but with the loans received and con- " tracted for, there would l?e no deficit, only upon e llie day when you, the Assembly, make it; that r by adopting the measures proposed, and to be proposed, there would be no longer any financial difli- J' culty in France, and that, after 1840, they could be 1 modified, and some withdrawn." This is bold * language, nnd to the point. Many say Gen. C. is .' Minister of Finance, in fact; but if lie is at the lj head, he has a good minister and a bold one. OBSERVER. " Paris, August 2, 1SI8. ? Interpolationt vj>on the Prets?The Debate. I Yesterday there was a grnud debate upon the f suppression of the press by the government, and {* the imprisonment of Kmile dc Girardin, growing P out of interpolations addressed by M. Latouche to I the government. This gentleman maintained that 0 the government had exceeded its power, and that j, the only authority which a state of siege gave a o commanding general, was to transfer to him all 11 the powers which the civil authorities possessed? j] that it did not create a dictator; and lie declared that n the legal bureau of Paris had giveii an opinion to g this effect upon the demand of Emile de Girardin. jl He, therefore, denied the right of the government to j| suppress the journals, and l o imprison the editors, p This view was sustained by MM. Volette, Verin, 81 lhipont de Bassae, Germain Samot, and Victor \ llugor, the latter distinguishing between the powers of Gen. Cavaignac L?etween his four days H of dictatorship, and his powers as President of j, the Council since that time. To these gentlemen, s1 M. Marie, the Minister of Justice, replied that he ,] had a great respect for the bureau ; but that they w had but poorly understood the question?that he j, hod no doubt about the powers or the duties of ,| Gen. ('., under the authority with which the a Assembly clothed him. and the exigency of the e case then before him?that on the 25th of June A Gen. C. suppressed the eleven presses, and imprisoned Km lie de Girardin, and four days ulter that he resigned his dictatorial powers lo the A?- t] eembly. who, with a full knowledge of what he had l( done, voted unanimously to approve his acts, arid that he merited well of the country; that the go- a vernment would act upon the ancient laws until j,, the nine provisions were adopted ; and that no powers had bedh abused which had been confided jt to the government. Victor Hugo paittcularly in- ni terrogatpd the President, and told him that the ,j liberty of the press existed before htm, and that it js would exist after htm. v: Gen. C. responded, "that much had been said w in the disrussion of dictation, and dictator; and w that much had been said, of a like character, some cj weeks past, under circumstances to winch it was sl not necessary for him to refer. They had addressed him without, and upon the threshold of this Assembly; mid the honorable members to whom 1 refer know how 1 received their questions and their interpolation ?! do not wish to say, their counsels and their insinuations. (Trftbien.) The 1 jipprmmy Knows, 100. n mere ntis wen dictation; with what haste, ton, I rnsigued it. I will not enter into the details of the i|uestion belore the dssemblv, nor defend myself from the charge of having abused the powers conlided to me. I will ti be accused or defended by a vote of the Assembly." Upon a motion being made by a member to pass a resolution expressly to that effect, the Gene- c< ral opposed it, and said that the usual proceeding tc to the order of the day was all he desired. This m vote was adopted by a great majority. 1 suppose . that the Gcnernl referred to some of the members who advised him to assume the powers of dictator, tc which he is known to have spurned; and who now w complain of the mnnner in which lie has controlled rj the press. What knaves some politicians can he! . and how distressing1! disagreeable it is to behold, when they cannot create a new insurrection. Gen. 1 C. will not be dictator?he will not succumb to te fear?he will preserve order. It is distressing. ni Observer. o' Paris, August 1,18-13. ^ The Enptisli Press, and General Cavaigncc?New ? Events in Prussia?Net'' Combinations Pro a bablc. ? The Lnghsh press have announced that Gene- J? ral Cavaignac was becoming so unpopular that pi He could not long continue at the head of affairs; t< and this it has done in the same breath that it ^ accords him great praise. It says of him, that r. like Napoleon, he studies and decides in his $] closet; but not like Napoleon,he does not go to war b< without a cause. Hut it says, no man can long maintain himself at the head of affairs in Francs who will not, like Thiers, play into the hands of h the republicans and the family of Orleans, at the lr same time; but says that lieneral Cavuignac is ji too honest to do this. One hardly knows whether ci it was folly, prejudice, or malice, that dictated c' such nonsense and facts commingled together.? ^ That General Cavaignac is an honest and brave [< man there is no doubt, and that the English v fear him, and would like to be rid of liirn as the rj head of the French government, there is as little donfaf; that while they nraise lumthey would like ' to prejudice the Frencli against him, is equally j; probable; because, so long as he is at the head of M the republic, theie are no hopes of creating confu- ri sion in the affairs of Frnnce, at home or abroad; r that there is a party furious for war, a foreign c war, in France, is trtie; and that they will be dis- " satisfied if they cannot make France adopt their j' immediate views, is probable; bur so far from . there being any decrease in the popularity of General C'avaignacj as the English allege, lie andhif J1 government are gaining a hold upon France such as no man or government has held since the days *j of Napoleon: and he has so much weight of cha- J] racter, bravery, personal and moral, so much good sense, and i? fo able in and out of the Assembly, J* that be has n belter prospect for permanancy than ' ! any oilier man; but the Kngligh say lie will not j intiigtie, and;does not forestall events, and that is I one secret of streng h. The public rully around f | liirn; what he 6ays they believe; and as tliey know hint to be honest, brave, and ra|wblc, there is j' j n<> need of any intrigue toMttnun himself; he I is mueli stronger without it. Re demolishes | f'roudlmn and Thiers, at the same blow ; and does it only in the discharge of a duty and self-defence; _ nnd bs tlic National said ol the e\ent, shows how 'j straightforward integrity and dignity can overcome ihr most supple cunning and clever talent. I would not fny thai i think the position of General da- ' tnignacmay not he overthrown in the whirlpool '' ol events and elections; but at present there is no ' ground to apprehend tt, nor any thing in the pros prct which Indicates it. The King 01 Prussia is still represented as insisting upon the right ol the German 1-impiteto govern, 4 and tne constituency ol Prussia are now represented jj as the active agent* opposed to it. There is said, ? alsr. to he some jietittons lielore the Assembly, at 4 nrrlin. upon thp subject, praying that tlir qttestion may be given to the people to vote upon. That ^ there is a strong opposition in the arnty appears to he pretty clearly indicated, and that it may yet become u Question full ol clanger to Prussia is not impossible. But Prussia must yield, or the tier- ai man Umpire w ill be overthrown. War may yet f) soring tip between the two powcre. Some of the ,, I ruasjan aristocracy call for the abdication of the Prussian king, on account ol his position upon ?u this question. Prussia declared war with Den- ?? inaik; now she want* peace, but llie emperor w ill not permit it. Prussia and Denmark may yet ally, , and fight the empire upon two questions nt the ** same tune; or the empire and Prussia may settle n ' their differences and ally and fight Denmark on the 81 < nc question. It is intimated, and I think with a truth, that England had an influence in the pelec- B tien o' the second son of Charles Albert for King , fiftieth. if so, she may co-operate with Franco i'ii the Italian duration.

I have informed you of the receptions which Gen. avaignac has given; 1 should have mentioned tha' e was received in a citizen's dress, of black, and, mt this style of receiving the officers, civil and lilitury, of France, lias created quite a sensation. ,ouis Philippe always received in epauletts, and nth a sword; but the court style of President lavaignac has been adjudged singularly approbate for the republic, and very marked in a galint ofTicerof the line. The French ure much inuenced by such incidents, and they regard it as ecoiating their republic with a civil, rather than military wreath. Washington's example, in ' his respect, has not been lost upon Gen. C. I ! rust that Gen. C. is endeavoring to imitate the , xample of Washington, in the first days of our rpublic; and if he can but succeed, lie will fill the ] korld with his glory. Washington lives in lurope as vitally as in our own country, and 1 Ingluiul claims a share in his glory, because lie 1 /as of English descent. In the picture gallery at j 'crsailles, 1 found full length portraits of Wash- J ngton, and in less dimensions, those of Hamilton, J elierson, Frnnklin, Marshall, Jay, and Adams ; , ut what a limited number, compared with the i rent men who have adorned our country, and i villi those of France, England, Germany, Spain, < taly, and, indeed, nearly every nation in Europe !

Let us ut these things and our history in painting and tatuary, and we shall give a character to our ' ountry abroad, equal to its grandeur and its glory, i Without this aid ofart we cannot do it. Go into le immense rooms in the gallery at Versailles, 1 nd their high walls are entirely tilled with the 1 istoric deeds of the empire only. No one can i land there, and not feel the greatness, the glory, , le immortality of France. Von can there see hat youliave only before heard of, and remember ' idisnm try.

Where an American, acquainted with the ! operations of our institutions, foreseeing the necessity , of certain orgauio laws, looks on. and sees a people thus struggle among themselves, and contending about the very elementary principles ol a free consli- j ution, it makes him fee! as though lie would like to ipeak out, and give them a helping hill, but they mist learn for themselves, and in their own way. j Tliey are studying our organic laws, State and na- | lional, for the lirst time, in good faith and with great | teal, to understand them; and the leading members I come lorward. and acknowledge their wisdom and the I greatness of cur nation and our national glory. At I this moment. Washington, Franklin, Jefferson, and j the mighty dead of America, are speaking out in the language of wisdom from their graves to the French people, and, through them, to F.urope. And the example and the glory of their descendants are I invoked as examples for imitation by the powers of Kuropc. Still the idea that we derived our institu- j tions from the F.Dglish, and that there is a spiee of ; Biirteoraev about tl.ern, is bard to he eradicated from i the French mind. Their hatred of the F.nglish and thtir institutions is only exceeded by their regard for j us; and had not F.nglan'd a House of Fords, I have I no doubt that the French would readily adopt the idea of two chambers; but iu huropo. they see in the second chamber only the aristocracy of the nation. I full of j.ridc and privilege, and they associate these ideas w ith an upper house, but the argument of ex- | ample, drawn trom our country, is possessing thera with great power, end many are yielding to it. The majority is still against two chambers, and fo-. one ex- I ecutiTo chief, to ho chosen by (tie people. I think the Idea ot choosing a President by the Assembly, lor a I given period, and framing a constitution to liim, has struck the French mind, which can do almost any | thiDg in this hind of way. as a little extraordinary.

In Paris, Lyons, Kouen, Pcuion. and ail the other large places, the disarmament nas been complete, and those nouns to renew the cornLiat have been destroyed. To be sura the population iTcrturned the monarchy without arms, bul it was bc-ause the public mind was ripe for it. The Hoards sore disaffected towards the monarchy, nnd tin- King igitated. cowardly, and Incompetent to adopt any rololute and decided course. The Republic eannot he overthrown in the present state of public s< ntiment, by powers foreign or domestic, nrmed or unarmed. Frnnee is. at this moment, the strongest nation in l.urope. The youug Republic is already a giant in strength, while it yet remains only in a Provisional state. Tne Monitor reports the number, so far as as ccrtalncd to havo been killed, to hare been fourteen hundred, and the wounded at the hospitals, at about eleven hundred ; while the President slnted to llie Assembly a lew days ago, that the number at the hospitals was then lbUO. The truth is. ttie public will nevir know how many were killed uud wounded. All parties will concent to the extent of their power, hut 1 am inclined to think that the numbers first reported weio exaggerated, and that )>" ibfv the tvhoW number inay fall within ten thousand.

Spttchej of lAmartim and A'ajaaVon Ronupiirtr. Napoleon Bonaparte has attacked the policy of l.umarline before the Committee, and declared hat a badly copducted policy, with some renown, s better for France than a mere negative poaiion. J.amartine haa replied in defence ot his >olicyp which he aays ban given peace to liurope ind confidence in France ; that had France purwed an aggressive policy?nad ahe entered at mcc into the Italian war, without roforenoo to the niaietry, It would hare brought upon her the hostility :f all <*r?inanir rallied Austria and I'rusxia round iae thrones, end presented thu reTolutlems In those Stete#, end the nnihlh.tion of tho power* of their loser ign*, that had th y r?ToluV?n!apd Belgium, IE R A T 1848. there would have two partlna arisen, one for annexing it to France?the other for maintaining It* independence; that had France oppoeed the annexation, her 1 position in Belgium and at home would hare been worre than it ia ; and had the annexed it. it would bare brought on a war with Kngland and Holland, m and if with them, with Rueela and Ir.i-mia and probably K.urope entire Ah to Napoleou'e policy, I.amartine raid ' he udianced ail but two thinirx and . these were? hi* internal and bis external policy ; the former. he said, was anti-democratic, contrary to liberty. to the revolution, and to the age; the latter, ha said, consisted only in the cannon--tore to pieces the chart of the world, without even seeking to recompose it-with a blow of mutilated all the nationalities and all the national alliances without oyer thinklna of the next day, and in the day of liquidation inetitable, for so much of Hoed and glory what Is left for France ? Nothing but his name." This is lnterertiDg, as evincing the views of the leaders of the I-rench ropuLlio in 1848. Without analyzing the truth and fiction, the fact and the poetry of this declaration, on looking at the different circumstances in which Napoleon, Franoennd Europe were then placed and the different polloy required both at home and abroad, the davelopeinent shows bow strongly are I.amartine'a prejudices against the only man that France r< members with adoration, and who did more for ; France?for liberty In Franca and Europe? did more to break up old despotic dynasties and inspire the people with a desire to bo free ?in a word, more lor the advancement of F'ranre and Europe. in all the nets which . noble a nation ami an individual, than all the crowned beads that erersat upon a European throne, and the present revolution and progress of ideas in F'.nrope. I.ainurtlne's own seat as a representative in Franca, under u republic, was aud is the fruit of , Napoleon's policy, foreign and domestic. Napoleon ploughed Europe planted II with the Mods of men's freedom ; and if he ploughed it with the sword, it was I because no instrument less pointed would penetrate 1 he mere surface that had been prepared for pit through J appeasing I he troubled waters, anil I think liis foreign policy nt tills moment had been well t.(inducted ; but his prejudice aguiust the Bonaparte family in exccseivi*? blinds bin judgment, and shows that his English ronnretionH have not made him any better frenchman?and that, in early life, when he first imbibed his prejudices against Napoleon, he hiiuxoir was not u republican ; that he was in prinoiple?what lie was in fact?a disciple of the royalist school, in which lie served long. I.amartlne is a noble man ?has a noblo heart?but he must forgot to derive his lessons from the counsels of Kngland or royallsm. and stifle his prejudices against Napoleon, or ho can have no permanent standing in Franco The name of Napoleon in F rance is too precious to he rudely dealt with by any Frenchman. All the republicans, in the old and now world, revere the memory of Napoleon, and despots arc his ro llers. I.auiartine might have boon replied to, that he reviled the very spirit which bud given him political existence at that moment? and tile very basis upon which the present republic stood Napoleon fought the battles of the present re. public?inspired Europe with a respect for the power of France that is not limited to one age.
