The State of Europe. Ail eyes are turned towards Europe to see how she witt bear herself under the inspiration! of liberal ideas. For years the things that have taken place and! are in' progress, have been, it is true,! predicted, especially from this side of tnfc Atlantic \ But these predictions have been often set down as the shoots of an unchecked enthusiasm, rather than! the calm, shrewd calculations of a far-seeing judgment ; the enervesence of jubilant oratory rather thap the rigid deductions from the facts of social life. If hundreds have prophecicd, thousands have doubted, just as the men of faint faith in democratic ideas doubt and fear and mourn about our own national decay and tendency to anarchy. Hence] little heed has been given to the enthusiastic dreamers about the spread of free principles. Nearly the last words of Jxffkiisox expressed a confident hope that the declaration that came from his pen and embodied the noble arid kindling politics of his age, would he...

REVOLUTION I1V FRANCE. S^EN ES IN PARIS. On the morning of the 24 of Feb.. the King abdicated. Paris at night was very generally illuminated. The.throne and royal furniture were burned, but quiet1 prevailed throughout the city. The red flag was every where displayed. The provisional government issued a proclamation, wliicli has been already published, announcing its intention to submit the question of a Republic to the people. The unfortunate ifiring upon the crowd, near the hotel of M. Guizpt, had taken place the >iay before, and was not proyoked, as was bet' nte stuted, by the shooting of the polonel, but simply by n proposi'tion to illuminate M. Guizofs house.

iuu France and England—(lie Hewf , «n. The gallant French people axe pleasantly enough returning the compliment they owe England on an old score. In 1688, James the Second of England, as obstinate and wrong-headed a king as' old Louis Philippe, but not so crafty and, hypocritical, was driven from his kingdom , and escaped for his life to France, and as he rari^ away threw the great seal 'into the Thames. The French took care of him but never let him go back, and in 1701 he died quietly in Paris. Out of that expulsion of a bad monarch, all that is good and wholesome and popular in the English constitution has since grown and nourished. One hundred and sixty years after that event, tlio French people, tired of the treachery of their itinerant and schoolmaster turned tyrant, have sent him over to England and set up a government for them selves, which God grant they may retain. Now let us sec if England wjll dare to turn up her aristocratic noso at the provisional government of ...

Address or Mr. Rush. On tne 2Sth, Paris had been restored to something like its former condition. On the l>'Jth. Mr. Rush and the other foreign ministers recognized the new government. On the 1st of March, the same correspondent writes : . * A courier with the despatches from the Foreign Office to Lord Normandy arrived at Paris last night. He was the bearer of the reply of Lord Palmerston to the despatch of the British Ambassador respecting the position England would assume towards the Provisional Government. Lord Normand y had a second interview with M. de Lamartine this morning, and notified the French Minister for Foreign Affairs that he had received instructions to inform him that England had no wish to throw obstnulions in the ivny of the. Provisional Government, and that the recent changes in France imuhl in no way nffcel tlie friendly relations which hare hitherto existed between the two countries. Paris enjoys perfect tranquility, and the accounts from the provi...

Speech of Lamartluc. The Prcase says:—Five times during the day M. de Lamartine addressed the people assembled under the windows of the Hotel de Ville. The following is an extract: "It is thus you are led from calumny to calumny against the men who have devoted themselves, head, heart, and breast, to give you a real Republic —the Republic of all rights, all interests, and all the legitimate rights of the people. Yesterday you asked us to usurp, in the name of the people of Paris, the rights of 35.000,000 of men, to vote them an absolute Republic, invested with .the strength of their consent, that is to say, to make ol that Republic, imposed and not consented, the will of a part of the people, instead ol" the will of the whole nation. To-day you demand from us the red flag instead of the tri-colored one. Citizens! lor my part, I will never adopt the red flag; and I will explain in a word why 1 will oppose it with all the strength of my patriotism. It is, citizens, because the t...

ulties. Funeral rites ofllie Devoted Dead. On the 4th, the Herald correspondent says:— March 4tli is as great a day in Paris as at Washington. One million of people, probably, have assembled to witness the iuneral rites over the departed dead—those who have died fighting for their liberty and a Republic, and who have been immortalized as suddenly and unexpectedly as their sovereign was dethroned. This was probably the pageant of all pageants—the numbers, the occasion, the excitement of the public, the plan, could hardly be expected to occur again in the history ot the world. .The manifestation was equal to the occasion, and beautifully appropriate ; there was the Iglisc Maddiem. the most elegant and magnificent in Paris. Not as Adrian says, built over the spot where Louis XVI and .Maria Antoinette were hurried, but in the Pineda Muddicuc. dressed in mourning outside and inside; arid upon the black drapery banging above its lofty walls in front, were inscribed in immense letter...

TUe King's Flight. : The, King lost his breakfast on the mtfrning he escaped—when the insurgents entered the palace they found the table not only set, but the repast prepared and served upon it. The King 's servant said to him, just before that time—" Your Majesty, there is a great excitement among tho people, and you will he obliged to make concessions to appease them."" The King remarked, '• that it was only a coiRe-house affair, which they would put "down in a few hours.'1 When he made hi« escape he was dependent upon this servant to ;bring him two shirts; but ho could not stop to take; any money witK him, and at Drux.his friends raised two hundred Irancs for him to pay his expenses to England. Docs there not appear something like a retributive justice in this ? On the morning of I the 22d, the King orders his troops to fire on the people, for no manner of offence, except making known their wishes for a redress of their grievances. Not a man was armed, or assumed any menaci...

Depredations of Robbers. The correspondent of the London Chronicle, writing on this date, the 27th, ' says: The Provisional. Government has made very considerable progress in the re-establishment: " of order, and is proceeding in the organization o)' a new form of government with a degree of activity suited to the important position in which it is placed. ' -r Public confidence, which, on Friday was at a very low ebb, even among the .Republicans themselves, has been greatly restored since yesterday morning. It must not, however, be supposed that crimes are not occasionally committed, or that the mode ot punishing them is the most regular in the world. The fact is thatsthe Lynch law is here in full force. Robbers and wilful fire-raisers (these being the prevailing crimes) are punished with extraordinary rigor. On Friday and yesterday several thieves- were taken jlagrttntc dclido, tried by the by-standers, and shot at once. This happened in several instances on Friday. In the Ch...

Can France Maintain a Republic ? The Herald's correspondent, whose letters are full of interest, says :— Can France maintain a republic ? My opinion is in the affirmative. Blood may yet flow in rivers in Paris before the republic becomes stable. Tlie present and other governments may be overturned. The forms, in their details, may undergo great changes, and different experiments may give place to their successors; but that ever France will return to monarchy, is not probable. There is-a vast and immeasurable difference between the condition of the French people of 17U2 and 18-18, and a corresponding difference in the condition of surrounding States of Kurope. Our own example has, within that time, ceased to be an experiment, and has become a historical fact, full of instruction. Wide spread intelligence has changed the face of Europe ; constitutions have sprung up and survived for years; monarchies have given way, or been modified by the force of public sentiment: the press ha...

Mr. Slidcll ' s Instructions. We trust not one of the readers of the Intelligencer will fail to peruse the powerful despatch of Mr. Bi-cuASAX to Mr. Slidell, containing his instructions on receiving his appointment as Minister to Mexico, in November, 1845. It is well known that the Mexican authorities, in the gasconading and insolent tone for which they are so celebrated, refused to receive Mr. Slidell, and that his mission, which was eminently one of conciliation and peace, \vas consequently frustrated. The despatch of the Secretary of State is, however, not the less important, as it constitutes a connecting link in the great chain of events that has since signalized the conduct and history of the two republics. It furnishes, without any exception, the most perspicuous and graphic detail of facts up to that period, that has been furnished from any quarter, and places nnr xitlc of the controversy in a light so clear and uiHiui'slionable. that Tom Cuuwi.v himself, we should thi...

Jefferson ' s Opinion or Kings. Louis XVI was a fool of my own knowledge and in despite of the answers made for him on his trial. The King of Spain was a fool: and of Naples the same, They passed their lives in hunting, and despatched two couriers a week one thousand miles, to let each other know what game they had killed the- last preceding days. The king of Sardinia was a fool..- All these were Bourbons. The queen of Portugal, a Braganza, was an idiot by nature, and so was the king of Denmark. Their sons, as Regents, exercised the powers of government. The king of Prussia, the successor of the great Frederick, was a mere hog in body as well as in mind. Gustavus of Sweden and Joseph of Austria, ware really crazy, " and George of England was in a strait waistcoat There remained then none but old Catharine, of Russia, who had been too lately picked up to have lost her common sense. In this state Bonaparte found Europe, and it was this state of its rujers which lost it with scar...
