(From tho 1'arU Jlonitrur.)
The Government has received the follow
mg details of what took place on the night

the evening tho regiment of provincial mili
tia, about 500 strong, broke into insurrection
in their barracks, to tho crv of 'Tim rvni;.

marched under nrms to tho nalnpp. sinm'
Riego's hymn. The soldiers of the 4th reg.
imcnt of the Guards, seeing these men com

exception, would have nothing whatever to
do with this revolt, and the cavalry of the
guard took no nart in it. A. th n....,.k
of tho insurgents tho gates nf th nni0
were shut. The commandant general, Count
de i San i Roman, and the officers, lemaining
faithful, endeavored to calm tho soldiers but
were not listened to. Cries of 'Death m
Uuesa-Romnn' wero mingled with those of
'Death to Quesada.' On the first intelli
gence of these events, M. do Raynevnl, be
ing detained at homo with a heavy indispo
sition, M. de Bois lo Compte, who had or-
MVCir-nfew dncVS ic(o at St" Ndcfonso, and

then ensued: tho Qluccn ttying to conviiicc
them thnt they did not understand nven the
nature ol their demand, and the soldieis
confessing that in fact thoy did not know
much nbout tho constitution, but that they
had been told it was excellent, thnt it would
ameliorate greatly their condition, that
would lowei the price of salt, &c. To these
declarations, made in u very insolent tone,
wero added from time to timo protests of de
votion to tho two Queens. An officer mis
taking, or pretending to mistake, tho terms
of the constitution of 1812, represented to
them that this constitution called Don Car
los to tho throno instead of his niece. They
icplied, that as for Don Carlos they would
have nothing to do with him ; ho was a
despot. As for the two Queens, they said
it was of no consequence that tho constitu
tion repudiated them : the nation was deter
mined to have them, nnd would know well
how to support them. At 2 in the morning,
after five hours resistance, the Queen yielded

to iuu whiles oi uiose wnn surrounuou her;
nothing, however, could induce her loswenf
to the constitution of 1812; she protested
thnt she would not take any such step, which
could only be valid in tho presence of the
assembled Cortes. All that could bo ob
tamed of. her was, that slio would signji
writing thus worded : "The Queen au
thorizes Gen. Sun Roman to let tha soldiers
swenr to the constitution until the meeting
ol the Cortes." Tho troops immediately re
turned to their barracks; nt 5 o'clock trun
quility was re-established; ut 10, when the
courier cumo away, no new incident iind tn

thorities continued to discharge tkeir func

the only one who was nt St. Ildefonso, was
giving his orders.
Portugal. The Messager des Cham
bres of Saturday has the following: "Let
ters received this morning nt Paris, announce
that a violent .insurrection broke out on the
8th of August at Oporto. In tho beginning
the insurgents had tho worstof it; but there
is every reason to believe, from the contents
of the letters, that the struggle was renewed.
or that the authorities gave way, und that at
the present hour the Constitution of 1812
has been proclaimed in that city."

Midnight, light airs and fine wenthcr. At 3
A.M.thoofiicerofthe watch called me, and
informed mo that thero were sevcrnl proas
sweeping townrds tho shin. I immediately
ordered all hands to bo called, und clear the
guns for action. At 3 1-2 A. M. the proas
were closed to the starboard quarter and tho
ship would hardly answer her helm. I or
dered a musket to bo fired at them. The
proas pulled up under our starboard qunr
ler nnd commenced firing at tho ship. By
this timo wo got one of the large guns to
bear upon the proas nnd fired nUhem. The
action becamennimnlcd; the third shot fired
from our great guns evidently struck the
proas, nnd our crew gnve threo cheers, which
were immediately answered by the proas;
they then cnino up under our stern and kept
up a brisk firing, severulof their shots strik
ing the ship. At this timo wo poured in u
volley of musketry, which occasioned them
to pull from the shipf a breczo sprung up.
nnd wo got dur great guns to bear on them,
which mado. them pull off out of reach of
our guns. By this tune it was daylight, nnd
I observed the largest pron bailing out wa

ready to renew the fight. At this time the
Inrgest proa made a signal and four others
rowed along side him, nnd a consultation
seemed to taku place among them. At 8 A.
M. tho proas pulled up under the stern of
the ship; they were crowded with men, and
hailed us in English, nnd asked where wo
were from and where bound. At this lime we
had got one of the lSpoundcrs on the poop,
nnd the first shot struck tho largest pron,
when they immediately pulled nwny astern
of the ship. It was now culm. We kept
firing nt them until they weie out of gun
shot; they then anchored nnd seemed to be
repairing the large proa which was evidently
crippled, ns wo could see them constantly

At 10 A. M. a slight breezo sprung up.
I then called nil hands aft and asked them
if they wished to lenew the fight and attack
tho proas. The crew immediately wished
to engage them. I then hauled tho ship on
n wind, nnd made nil sail towards them.
The proas on seeing this, crowded all sail
in n line from us, nnd sweeping at the same
tune. In nbout half an hour tho breczo fail

their sweepj pulled towards tho Man Cap

Wonderful Dmci.osukk. A very ex

England, which in its results show how un
certain is tho very best evidence, how core-

have to ntonofor crimes of which others are
guilty.
