' tlio 22nJ, the day on which it ha4 been
'xeil hulil the great reform banquet, that
the eiiiiia city vas in ontni insurrection. The
Oppo-iiion deputies met. and resolved that
- i ' : i t

people bo entreated to submit, nnd llnil fi mo
tion for tho impeachment of minister be
made in tho Chamber of Deputies. It was
further resolved, that should this motion be
negatived, they would resign their functions
as deputies.
The army collected within Paris and tho
surrounding villrges nnd forts considerably
exceeds one hundred thousand men. This
force, unless tho soldiers sympathise with
the people, could crush the Parisian; while
the King and M. Guizot might indulge their
animosity to public meetings with perfect
safety. But if the army join the people, this
revolution would be more effectually comple
ted from the fact lhat so mnny men are con
gregated in the cepilal end its environs. Or
ders have been given to take military occu
pation of nil the points of the capital on which
the assemblage of the people might be ex
pected. As th-5 day advanced the ewiemblages in
the streets gradually increased. "until dense
crowds filled the principal thoroughfares lea
ding to the legislative chambers, and large
bodies of police and military were culled out
to preserve order. They assembled in great
multitudes round Ihe Chamber of Deputies,
and forced their way over their walls. They
were attacked by the troops and dispersed:
'but re-asNembled in various quarters. They
showed their hatred of M. Guizot by demo
lishing his windows and attempting to force
on entrance into bis hotel, but were again re
pulsed by the troops. All the military in
Paris, ami all the National Guards, were sum
moned to arms, and every preparation made
on the part of the government to e it down
the people. The latter raised barricades in
various places, and unpaved the st recti, over
turned omnibuses, and made preparations for
a vigorous assault, or a protracted resistance.
We take the following from the London
Morning Chronicle :
Pauis. Tuesday F.vening.
The accounts which I sent yon this morn
ing will prepared you for great confu
sion in the streets nf Paris, great assemblages
of the pr-ople, nnd partial disturbance, if riot
of actual insurrection. Tho result is just
what might have been expected. Immense
rnacses have paraded the public thorough
fares throughout the day. Troops in vast nam
hers were on foot, and occasionally, where the
musses became more than ordinarily dense,
charges of cavalry were made upon ihe peo
ple, and ihe streets with wonderful quickness.
The chops veto nil closed, end bus1:K-s of
every kind was suspended.
A largo body of students also parajed the
Boulevards, mixed with others of a more am
.biguons, if not a roortv rinnsmrotu. deljcrirtmn,
singing the Marseillaisi at the veiy pitch nf
their voices, mid vociferating a lus Gai::ot !
a l as Ic Ministcre ! Vive 'In refarmt ! accom
panied with groans or cheers as the case
might be;
I sluill now proceed to give, you detached
dutiiils, which it is ditucult to arrange in a
regular and connected form. I have already
said lhat, tho principal point to which the
crowd tended was the Place de la Madeli he
and the Place de la Concorde. About half-
past eleven n. regiment of infantry and seve
ral squadrons drew up neur the church of the
Madeleine, where the crowd was most dees".
A few laiiinies afterwards an iir.meii.'-e body
of persons almost all dressed in blouses, and
sniil In amount to ttnwar Is of ti(v), arpe.n-ed
from the direction of the Boulevards, but no
one could exactly say from whit place they
came. They marched in processiue, holdii u:
each other's aKis and sung the Marseillaise
in ouo general chorus. When passing Du
rand's reslurantj they gave three cheers for
reform, and then proceeded without stop
ping to the Placode la Concorde, their evi
dent intention, being to make their way to
the Chamber of Deputies. At the bridge op-,
podia tlw Chamber of Dep-. ties, however
they were siopped by a large body of cavalry
uud infantry, drawn up on the bridge. Tlcy
were then brought to a staud-s'.ill, and their
numbers were so great that they filled the
whole of th'i Place do la Concorde, one oj
ih l liugest spiares in Kurope. Just at tint
moment a portion of tho regiment of cavalry
at the bridge charged upon the mass, srpira
teTl it, and drove a considerable portion back
towards the Boulevards, while the rest was
driven into the Chumps, Fdysees. and the rest
down the Rue P.ivoli.
The whole of the place was cleared in less
time than ca,n be concieved, but the soldiers,
though they did their duty with great deter
mination and effect, so far from using unite
ccssarily harsh means, appeared to go about
wi'h great htimitnily and even good lunuor.
The portion of the crowd driven back towards
the Boulevards, and still marching in order,

I wavds tlwy met another L
c them, which was
and shortly ufter-
thfly met another kirge body, tho lea
ders of whom fraternally embraced tho Na
tional Guardsmen.
On arriving in front of the Hotel ties Af.
fairs Etrangeres they stopped, and sung the
Marseillaise in full chorus. Thpy then began
lo cry out ais Guizot abas le Minister,"
andTthe excitement was evidently increasuia.
At length a yery young man took up a large
stone, which he hurled against the great gate
of tho hotel, an example which was followed
by tha rest, who begun knocking against the
gate ; a shower of stones was thrown at the
same time, and broko several windows. Du
ring this time a body of the MiinicipalGuajd
(infantry.) who "were ilravu ey wilhi.i uo
gates, ilelilierately loaded their muskets, nnd
prepared for what might follow; but a body
of cavalry emerging from tho Rue des Capu
cines, at lhat moment charged, struck some
of the most active with the flat side of their
sabres, and very soon succeeded in dispersing
the crowd, and relieving tho residence of the
President of tho Council from the danger it
whs in.
At the meeting of the Chamber ol Depu
ties oil the 22nd, the deputies of tho Opposi
tion, to the nuhiber of 5.1; submitted the fol
Irrwing proposition:
::We propose to place the Minister iu accu
sation as Guilty
Of having betrayed abroad the honor
and the interests of France.
''3. Of having falsified tho principlesoftho
constitution, violated tho guarantees of liber
ty, and attacked the rights of the people.
'3. Of haitig, by a systematic corruption,
attempted to subslitnte, for the free expres
sion of public opinion, the calculations of pri
vate interest, 'and thus perverted the repre
sentative government. .
'4. Of having tra flicked for ministerial
purposes in'pufrlic offices, as well as in all the
prcrognt ives and privileges of power.
"5. For having, in the same interest, was
ted the finances of the state, and thus com
promised the forces and the grandenr of the
'fi. Of having violently despoiled tho citi
zens of a right inherent to every free consti
tion, and the exercise of which had been
iunranteed to them bv tho Charter, by the
laws, and by former prceededents.
"7. Of having, in line, by a policy eevertly
counter-revolutionary, placed in question all
the conquests of our revolution", and thrown
the county into a profound agitation.
, Paris, Wednesday, 2 o'clock.
After" t despatched my letters last evening,
events of greater importance than bad taken
place up to post hour had occurred. In sev
eral streets running into the Rue St. Denis
and the Rue St. Martin, tho people erected
barricades, by tearing up tho paving stones,
seizing carts, omnibuses, 'kc. Most of these
barricades were soon carried by the munei
pal guards o'nd troops, but at some of il? m
severe engagYmcfits took place, notw ithsiatid
ing the people were almost entirely unarmed.
Great numbers of fr-sh troops have been
marched into Paris this morning, from the
towns aniUef.irrisons whhin reach of the c.ipi-
tab "
Iu seme streets' the populaoo destroyed ihe
.electric, telegraph. . "
The.Nalional Guard, thoitgh tha rapprlxm
frequently beaten lust evening, scarcely tur
ned out all . In several places,'! Is said,' that
scarcely three persons in a whole company
answered the rappel. This morning tho m;
pcl has been again beaten with a like result.
In the districts where the National' Guards
did assemble, they cried '-Vive la Reforme !"'
and sung the Marseillaise.
Three o'clock.
Tho Guizot Ministry has resigned. A de
putation of the officers of the National Guard
went to the Tuileries to demand that it
should be dismissed, when they were told by
General Jacqueminot, commanding the Na
tional Guard, that th Ministry had given in
its resignation- '
The red urpeet of the sky in the direction
of Jhml-ValeriiMi showed that an incendiary
fire was raging there.
Four o'.-l.i. k
The inti-i'.igenco of ihe resignation (.1 Lie
Ministry is spreading like wiMlire through
the city, an I is cverv here received with
every demonstration nf joy. At this moment
there is an immense crowd on the Boulevard
shouting "Vive la Reuyme." A general com
manding ths troops exclaimed, --Yua shall
have reform." --And tho dismissal of tho
Ministry V cried tho people. "Their dis
missal and nccusa'ion, and everything,'' was
the answer, nnd it was received with shouts
of uppans!1.
The fighting in the quarter of St. Martin
Mill continues, and troops are proceeding to
if. When, however, they shall learn the
overthrow of the Ministry, it is believed that
hostilities will immediately cease.
Iu pSssiug the bunk, just now, I saw the
mob hud got possession of the guard house at
the comer. They had torn down tho llag,
and a fellow hoisted it on a large polo. There
were then shouts of "To the Tuileries! To
the Tuileries!"
Fresh troops are being summoned to Paris.
The regiment of carabineers, in garrison at
Provins, are expected momentarily. At
Cliehy, the inhabitants liave been told to pre
pare for the reception of troops.
During latit night the barricades of yester
day morning were removed. . However, this
morning, large numbers of the populaco were
underarms, and rebuilding barricades. The
streets of St. Denis, St. Martin, Rambutenti,
St. Sum ic r de Gruvillers, and all tho narrow
street adjoining, have been barricaded, aud
so well defended, that, up to eleven o'clock,
the troops had failed, in their attempts to
take possession of them. The .Municipal
Guards were repulsed to tho Rue Moutorqueil
by the firing of the populace. Tho garrison
of 30,000 troops are all emplpyed to guard
lha inmuuejiablti.aveuuea to the Place Girard.
Many of that regiments are overcome with
fatigiyo. Thj councils of ministers, and a
crowd of parliamentary dignitaries have) ta
ken refuge in tha chateau. Fresli troops are
expected every moment by railway.
Half-past Four.
" All the Government eftcials' have been or-dm-cdju

bfen provided with hatchets to cut down the
barricades. The 2nd, 4th and 'h legionn of

M. Vavin, the deputy of the ll'h arrondis
scment of Paris, rose and i,i ihe Kimeof him
self and other deputies of Paris, addressed
some questions lo the Minister of the Interior
with respect to the recent events in Paris.
M. Guizot who had thortly before entered
the Chamber, immediati-lv ri se and said 'd
have nothing to say at the present moment
to the questions of the honorable member.
The King has sent for Count Mole, who is
empowered to form a ministry' Loud cries
of ''bravo," and cheers followed this an
nouncement, which i:pp"ared to njmny M.
Guizot. He then continued '-We are not
to be prevented by such manifestations as
those I now hear ns long as we remjiiii in of

pointed, from doing ourduty. We shall con
sider ourselves nnswersible for all that may

the interests of the country."
After some interruption created by this an
nouncement. "
M. Odilon Barrot rose, and said '-In con
sequence of ihe situation of Ihe Cabinet, I
demand the adjournment of the proposition
which I made yesterday (the empeachment)
(lend cries of '-'yes yes," and "no. no.") I
will submit lo the lecl.;rn of the Chamber
on the point (no, no.)
M. DrroN then rose, and said ''The firs!
thing nnceess'ary for the capital is peace. It
must be relieved from anarchy. Every one
knows that the spirit of July exists yet. Ho
mage has been done to Ihe res' of th;' nation.
But the people must know that i is. di libera
tions must not be on the public, way. The
assemblages must cease. I do not see how
the ministry, who are provisionally charged
with th ; public affairs, can occupy themselves
at the sanio time in re- vt-ibhVhieg-rvder and
with the care of ih -ir own safety. , I de

M. Guizot "As !o"g as Oi" cabinet sh.iit
be entrusted with publie. affairs, it will make
the law 1)3 respect. The cabinet sees no
rc'tison why tho chamber iiul.1 suspend its
labours. Tho crown at the present moment
is using its perogative. That perogative must
be respected. As-long as the cabinet is upon
these benches, no business need remaia sus
peaded." The President then put the question as lo
the adjournmonUof M. Odilon Il.;rrnt's prepo
sition. About ciic hundred members of Ihe
Opposition supported the adjournment ; the
whole of the conservatives were against it.
The Chamber immediately ros? in great
