TOE FRENCH REVOLUTION.
We published last week a detailed ac
count of th flight of Louis Phillippeand
his family from Paris and their escape to
England. I he suddenness and complete-
ness oi tne tail of a King Irom a position
rendered apparently impregnable by nu
merous fortifications and the presence of
a large army of regulars, is, under all the
circumstances connected with it, an event
without a parallel, and has elicited the
annexed article from the leading English

THE FKEXCII REVOLUTION.
It is with thejgreatestleasure that we
announce the safe arrival of the. last and
most illustrious instalment of the royal
fugitives" on fhse shores. For a whole
week the ex-King of the French, after
playing for eighteen years the most con
spicuous part on the most conspicuous
stage of European affairs, had totally dis
appeared from ijie scene. His place could
nowhere be found ; and, shocking as all
would have felt it, it was at lejast as pro
bable a conjecture as any other, that his

The Express steamer brought them yes
terday morning to Newhaven, where they
had to wait for $ome hours till the state of
the tide should enable them to enter the
harbor. At last they landed, and were
glad to receive a. very heart v welcome to
the well-knownj shore. For the rest, we
must refer to the particulars which we
have been enabjrd to supply, and to which
the rank, the misfortunes, and it must be
added, the errors of the. distinguished suf
ferer will impart so peculiar an interest.
It may be safely said, there is nothing
in history nojhuig, at least, in the'exam
ples which most readily occur to the mind
that at all comes near the tremendous
suddenness of tlie present royal reverse.
This day forthight, Louis Phillippe was
the. most prosperous, the most powerful.
and accounted the ablest sovereign in the
world. If the reader will just think of it.
he will find that this wonderful man had
attained the very acme of success, con
sideration, ami power. It is a work of
time to enumerate the many circumstan
ces of his splendid condition. His numer

brilliant alliances one of them recently
concluded which brought into one fami

to Uadiz ; the near prospect of an event

After many days suspense, the King
and Queen are heard of, on some private
information, on the coast of Normandy,
where they had been ' on the run' from
house to house, and content with humble
hospitality, the King, wejare told, in
strange disguises. They still have a small
retinue. These half dozen invaders, with
out either arms or baggage, do not find it
so easy to cross the channel. Stationing
themselves at HonfieUr, within twenty
miles sail of Havre, they watch opportu
nity and the weather, which last delays
their passage several days. At j length
ihey get into a British steamer. Arrived
at Newhaven, after a rough; passage, they
encounter fresh delays, as if to prove that
England is not so easily surprised. Louis
rminppe, who was to nriugetne iniisn
Hellespont, crosses it with foreign aid,' and
the abdication of Louis Phillippe in favor
of the young Count of Paris was rejected.
On Thursday. Feb. 24, between one and
two, P. M., I entered the Chamber of De
puties. Upon reaching the vestibule, find
ing only some 12 or 13 gentlemen there
walking op and down, and that the ses
sion had not yet opened, 1 lounged about
there instead of mounting to the diploma
tic tribune. After I had been there a few
minutes, one of the ushers entered from
without in haste, saying that Madame la
Duchesse d'Orleans, and Mbns. le Comte
de Paris, were coming to the Chamber;
and that the President must b? instantly
sent for to take his place, and the great
doors of the session soon opened. All was
then hurry on the part of the ushers, and
excitement on the part of the gentlemen
in the vestibule. In two or three minutes
the Duchess appeared leading the Comte
de Paris, and attended by the Due de Ne
mours and two or three other gentlemen
in the uniform of cenerals. with several
members of the National Guard. She
was also accompanied by one of her la
dies of honor, whose name I could not
learn, and also by her youngest son, the
Due de Charlres, who was carried in the
arms of a person whom I took to be his
It may interest your ladies to know that
the Duchesse wore a black silk dress with
three rows of flounces, black silk hat, and
cape or long shawl. Her childrf n were
dressed nr plain black suiis with round
caps of black cloth. The Duchess is near
ly 35 years of age, of medium stature and
finely formed. She has dark auburn hair,
a lull forehead, very regular features,
light eyes, but not a very expressive coun
tenance. She had, no color, her cheeks
were thin, and she had rather a sickly
At last the President, who was furiously
ringing his bell all this time, obtained si
lence, and rose and declared that tbe
Chamber had proclaimed the Comte de
Paris King of the French, with the re
gency of his ugust mother. A great tu
mult then arose, every body screamed

For some moments after the party en
tered, there was some little confusion and
discussion between the Duchesse, and the
Duke de Nemours and one or two gentle
men as to what was to be done. At last
it was concluded to enter the Chamber by
the side entrance on the right of the Pre
sident's pulpi:. The persons in the vesti
bule then all passed in with the Royal
party, I with others, advanced to the. cen
tral area, in front of the orator's tribune.
A sofa was hastily placed before the tri
bune, and the Duchess with her children
took seats upon it, while the Duke of
Nemours and other officers, and the lady
of honor, stood behind it. The lew mem

was compelled to sit down on one of the

did occur of an accusing character. The
frequent exclamation, " Lilfe Charles; X,"
we are told, betrayed the current of his
thoughts. We are verily guilty concern

come upon us." At the very moment the

to his reputation than the government of

were, at first, not more, than about 150
members present, and all remained stand
ing and uncovered for some time. Al
though it was only 1 o'clock, some of the
public tribunes were filled. After a few
minutes, order being obtained, M. Dupin
ascended the tribune "and announced that

'e JrOrWans. This uas reivod with s,ne
sent minister of Justice. He-commenced
by saying, that it was impossible that the
whole population should agree immedi
ately in the proclamation of the Comte tic
Paris as King, and the Duchess of Or- 1
leans as Regent, and it therefore was ne- I
cessary to act with deliberation and reg- i
ularlily. He professed the most profound j
respect for the Duchess of Orleans, and .
much feeling for the misfortune of the !
King and royal family, whom, he said, he !
had just accompanied to the carriages '
which had transported them from the city. ';
lie concluded by calling upon the assem-
bly in the most energetic terms and man- ,
ner, to firmly and resolutely insist upon ,
the immediate establishment of a Provi- j
sional Government. As 1 said before, the j
French can never miss an opportunity of;
a jest. When Cremieux said that he had
just accompanied the King and the royal
family to their carriages, a voice from one
tribunes cried out, bon voij
asaitt journey to them !
This created a great laugh. During the
j speeches of Marie and Cremieux, I felt
: my interest constantly increasing for the
Duchess, whose situation was becoming
' every instant more painful, and whose
! prospects were every instant becoming
; more feeble. She appeared, however.
perfectly calm and collected. The Due
de Nemours, fOo, showed no agitation, and
j sat quietly listening to the speakers. Af
j ter Cremieux finished, immense and long
continued applause succeeded, and I was
satisfied that it was all over for the. Duch
ess. When he had descended the tribune,
: he advanced up the central aisle and sat
down by the side of the Duchess, where he
; remained during the speech of liarrot. fre
