CONTAINING AN ACCOU NT OF Hal's VISIT TO THK Mrrin, on Titt: uvf.ning ov the Sih 3Iay. It must not be interred, by the reader of those profound speculations on life, that the vntir is :i remise, lie has been candid e nough, in a proceeding paper, to culighten the read r, as to his tnrncnauuxih in the so cial line. The fact is, he has a secret impres sion, that this "constitutional infirmity" as an ancestor of his, who was a church warden, was wont to designate his partiality for a glass of wine is the main drawback to his suc cess in authorship. This conquered, and there ; hut I will wait "a spell" per haps 103- trumpeter will save me the trouble of indicting the prediction, that was at the point of 1113- pen! This thing of self denial, is a hard task for some people, whom my modesty, forbids the mention of, to perform. For instance, there is to he, according to a notice in the l'rhnitive.

Well, what must I do? Ah now I 'Oh a heap of things !

A shout of laughter, from a gentleman. with' a cap on his head, and a gold-headed cane hi bis hand, and a young lady dressed in blue near by him, somewhat disconcerts 111c seeing as I do, that I, as a baby purchaser, am the object of their merriment.

If it was not presuming too much, I would ask her. "Well here we arc at the Post Office ! 'Any thing for ."

The ..Revolution at Paris in February, 1848 . From the London Timei. THE 24th OF FEBRUARY, 1848. - : BY MARSHAL BUOEAUD. "Chance has thrown into my hands a doc ument, not hitherto noticed, perhaps . the most instructive and useful of any that have appeared on that amazing catastrophe, and the publication of which, though referring to the past, could not have come more orro- pos, when we consider that the situation of the country; may before long bear a close re semblance to what it was in the commence ment of .1848. The document , referred to is a letter addressed by Marshal Bugcaud to a friend, a number of the Chamber of Dep uties, and which contains a succint and clear narrative of the events in which he took part on the 24th of February. The letter was written not long before his -death. It is as follows "My beau : It was 2 o'clock in the morning of the 24th when an Aid-dc camp came to me to request my attendance at the Chateau, (the luilcnes.) I hastened thith er. I was offerred the commaud of the troops and the National Guard. I well un derstood that it was too late but I thought it would be unworthy of me to refuse. The Ministers (MM. Guizot and Duchatel) were sent for to countersign the ordinances which named me. All this took some time ; so that it was about half past 3 o'clock the same morning before I was enabled to put myself in communication' with the troops that were thou in the Place du Carrousel, or in the Court of the Tuilorics? I assembled the of ficers and sub-officers, and harangued them with energy. My address was incorrectly reported in the journal. The troops were much discouraged, liiey liau been kept tor la Rcpublique ! Vive la ligne 1 ; A bs.s Gui zot ! What am I to do? I replied, 'Make the usual summons to the crowd to retire; if they do not obey, employ force, and act ac cording to my instructions.' I learned at a later period that my instructions had not been complied with. About seven o clock a crowd of. well dressed civilians, coming from different points where the insurrection was established, ran towards me, and, with tears in their eyes, besought me to remove the troops whoso presence irritated the people, ana to leave to the JNational Guard, which was assembling, the task of appeasing the cmeitteJ I was in the act of making them understand all that was dangerous in the ad vice they gave me, when M. Thiers and M. Barrot came to nie, brmjnnff, on the part of xviug, uie oraer to witnuraw tnc wnoic oi the troops, and to emply the National G uard only, of which I had as' yet merely two or three small platoons, who were on the Place du Carrousel. I resisted the Ministers as I did the civilians; but, the Duke of Nemours coming up and repeating the order on the part of the King, I considered that I could not any longer assume the responsibility of resisting. - l accordingly sat down to talk with a dozen officers of the staff about me, and dictated as follows the orders to with draw the troops ; 'In virtue of the order of the King and of the Ministers, you are forth with to retire ontheTuilerics. Retire in an imposing attitude, and, if you are attacked, wheel round, assume the offensive, and act in conformity with my instructions of this mor ning. ' "This order "was conveyed to the different points by the staff officers of the National Guard, and by civilians who officiously char ged themselves with the duty, and with a zeal that boded nothing good. It was this fatal measure which lost all. And observe how the most important affairs of this world are often decided; if that same morning the barricades had been defended, the battle was begun, and matters would have terminated in a different manner. I forgot to say that af ter having taken all my military measures, I more than sixty hours in a timid and even aid not ncclect using'all the means in my Mie takes mv shameful attitude, in presence of the entente their feet wore in the mud, their knapsacks on their backs, and they looked on tranquil ly while the insurgents attacked the muni cipal guards, burnt the guard-houses, cut down the trees, smashed the lamps, and har angued the soldiers. The soldiers had onlv received for nourishment three rations of biscuit, that had already been consumed ; they had generally but ten cartridges per man ; the most amply provided battalions had but.twcnty. On the Place du Carrou sel there were only tllree chests of cartridges. There were none whatever at the Ecole Mil- itaire, nor elsewhere in Paris. The only sup ply to be found was at Viuccnnes, and that only of thirteen cti.soiis. To bring up this supply it was necessary to traverse the whole rra, and we try every point theatre of the insurrections and thousands of the compass, for ccrcss. but in vain.

Barrot. More than two hundred proclama tions in manuscript were circulated in the streets by the police agents, by civiliansand military men in plain clothes. In some points the news was well received; in others the proclamations were torn down and tram pled under foot. Towards 0 o'clock M. Thiers andM. Barrot returned, and present ed me to M. de Lamoricicre, who had been just named commander of the National Guard. I received him with much cordiali ty and completely forgot old grievances; he had found the uniform of a citizen general 1 hastened to send him into the streets. 'Since we are not to fight,' I said, employ all your popularity, and try to bring these infu riated masses to reason.' Iain bound to say that he performed the mission I gave him v, ilh ixiieb devot'.dness. On certain points he succeeded; on others he was badly receiv ed, oi was exposed to great danger. M. Thiers and M. Barrot prepared to mount on horse back and harrangue the multitude, when the painter Vernet came to me and said, 'Keep back M.. Thiers. I have just passed among the insurgents, whom I have found infuriated against him, and I am convinced they will rushed at him and seized hold of his weapon; but those w ho were about him soon reduced him to silence, and then they all shouted, 'Vive la Marshal Bugeaud ! Honor to mil itary glory !' , I then had near mc the 31a- jor of Cavalry, (Trochcr,) Col. Ferey, and the Artillery, Captain, (Fabcr.) Alter bc ing shaken hands with thousand Of times, I prevailed on the column to retrace their steps; and many of those who composed it promised me to return to ther quarters and re-establish order. "A few moments after I beard musket- shots in the direction of the Louvre. I did not know we had a detachment here. It wa3 then about eleven o'clock, or half past eleven. I had no time to look at my watch. I galloped up to a battalion of the Fifth Light Infantry, and said to the men, "As they are beginning the combat; we accept it. 1 march at your head. At this instant twe-aids-de-camp of the King came to announce to mcthat his Majesty had just abdicated in favor of the Count de Paris; that a regency was about to be proclaimed; and that Mar shal Gerard was invested with the command of the troops ! 1 at once ordered a battal lion to advance alone on the side of Louvre. I could not bring myself to credit intelli gence of so extraordinary a kind. I hasten ed to the chateau to be sure of it3 truth ; I found the King writing his abdication in the midst of an immense crowd, who were urg ing him to complete the act. 1 opposed it with all my force. I said that it was too late and that it would have no other effect than to complete the discouragement of the troops; that musket-shots were already heard ; and that the only thing now to be done wa3 to fiffht it-out. The Queen took my part, and supported me with great energy.. The King rose before completing what he was writing. But the Duke of 31onsp(usier and many other persons, cried out that the Kiug had promised to do it, and that he must keep his wrord. Numerous cries supported these words ; my voice was covered by them, and the King sat down to write again. 1 stiil heard the firing. I rushed out to the court to go to battle with the first body of troops of good-will I could lay my bauds on. My horse was at the door; Heaped on him, and called on all w ho heard me to follow mc. "At this moment 31. Cremicux, who was coming from the chateau, caught hold of my leg, and shouted to me: 'Don't go, Marshal; you expose yourself uselessly to death: all is over !' I soon shook off M. Cremieux. I galloped to the Place du Carrousel ; decided on assuming the offensive. But, oh ! forev er shame and sorrow, and stupefaction !

It was impossible for me to arrest this multi plied movement. The beads of the column were already on the quay f or in the neigh boring streets. I lilted up my hands to Heaven, and I emitted the spot. I was es corted only by a single officer, Captain Faber. 1 went along the quay, close to the water, and on arriving in front ot the Chamber of Dep uties, I fouud the approaches abandoned, and the gates shut without a single sentinel without a guard without, in a word a hu man being. I had already surmised that the Deputies were not assembled, as I had seen crowds of them in the Tuileries or its neighborhood. 5 I was, nevertheless, looking for some one to give me information, when j a band ot rioters, who were coming along the Quai d'Orsay began to shout 'A has Marshal Bugeaud !' , I galloped up to the tront and said : 'JJoyou know, my men, what you are shouting? You are shouting a has the conqueror of Abuel Kader a has the man who vanished the Arabs and who won Africa for you ! a bas the man who may yet lead you to victory against Germans and Russians! Before a month pass over, per haps you may stand in need of my experi ence and of my energy.' These few words soon conciliated them. They then began to shout: 'Vive la Marechal Bugeaud !' and they all crowded round me and shook hands with me. .At the entrance of the Rue de l'lJniversitie I found another band, and the same scene was gone through. These two incidents made me ' lose sight of the Cham ber ot Deputies. Nevertheless, I, reflected that the Chamber was not protected by ahu- man being; but yet 1 thought that Marsnal Gerard, who had the command, and who could dispose of from 5,000 to 0,000 men who were on the Place de la Concorde, would look to it. I therefore went home to take off my uniform as quickly as possible, and to hasten to the Chamber. Some Generals who came to see me made me loose half an hour? When I reached the Palais, Bour bon (Chamber of Deputies) I saw deputies quitting the Chamber in a state of the grea test terror, and presenting the most deplora- Ho figure.
