T►e ?regress of the French Revolution.
We publish this week later intelligence horn
France, which represents the overthrow of Louis
Phißippe and his family as complete, and the esta
blishment, and recognition by Foreign Ministers,
of a provisional government. Louis Phillippe,
"the richest man in Europe," afterwandering with
his royal consort, in almost utter destitution amongst
farm houses, in a country over which but a few
days since, he had ruled with power almost des
potic, has arrived in England. His family and his
ministers have sought in precipitate flight, that safe
ty which they felt was not due them at home ; and
with an .amount or blood-shed and anarchy, so
small as to belunparalleled in history, France has
risen from her sufferinty t deposed her. oppressors,
and the tri-col&ed flag now floats over a Republic.
The attention of America is 1110 W directed with
intense interest to the spectacle exhibited in that
country. Their efforts for freedom strike a sympa
thetic chord in tin; country, which has sent up a
spontaneous and general expression of encourage
ment and good-will for the triumph of Freedom in,
la belle France. The question materially arises,
will she be able to maintain her independence, and
rear up safely, a faorie of self-government to be the
example of all Europe? Welrieline`to the airy.-
inative opinion. We believe that the French na-,
Lion ate ready for a 4 Republic, and though this revo
lution—(like our own gtrajpus struggle for Liberty)
—has been forced upon them, and fully carried out,
without preconCeption or deliberation, none the less,
has it realized the hopes in which that country has
only dared for some time to indulge. This may as
yet be only the " beginning of the end." Blood
mayryet flow in rivers—the forms of goveramcia
be change:it and re-modelled---confusion and an
archy for a While reign supreme—yet there is such
an immeasurable distance between this and former
revolutions, such a determination and unity of feel
ing in regard to those who have tyrannized over
them that we have no hesitation in saying that the
age of Kings in France has passed by—the love of
liberty and the hatred of oppression so strong, that
a Denton or Robbespierre cannot now flourish, and if
Frenchmen are true to themselves and their ,ours=
try, by bloodless and peaceful means,they Can form
a Republic which shall ensure the safety and hher.
ty of their country, and prove the cause of
bered blessings.
She has nothir g to fear from the remainder of
Europe-;---Kings and Emperors are, in too much
peril at home. to attempt coercive Measures tc.
wards France. She rather has the sympathy and
commendation of a great part of Europe to cheer
her on in the great reform she has undertaken. In
her former revolutions the feeling has been inimi
cal to her efforts, and has served in a measure to
defeat their *success. Tlie face of Europe is now
changed for the better. Men have leas respect fur
the " right divine," and .knowledge .cud intelli
gence have made rapid progress. 41n a correspond
ing measure men learn their own situation and the
situation of those around them. They find them
selves va , sals—servants to an aristocracy which
has neither virtue nor the authority of (61 to com
mend it. They •look upon other countries where
Freedom has a place, and by comparison find how
different is the situation of the self-governed to
their own meial and abject state. Their faith in
Kings is shaken—the love of liberty aroused, and
a corresponding detestation of tyranny awakened.
The tight dr Liberty and her handmai I knowledge
- dissipates the clarinet's of the degenerate feudal
ages, and before their rays the benighted Kingdoms
of Europe must fade arid vanish.
hi Fiance, the efforts of her men •of letters have
for some time past been given to the enlight
ened of the nuessets and strenuous efforts roads for
the amelioration of their condition. • We believe
they are thorougly informed of the tyranny they
have undergone, writ have Wen prepared folly of
their ultimate destinatimi—as Republicans, It is in
• these labors, and in the pmgress the masses have
made in the scale of intelligence, that we found

were that it is yet in the hands of the cotispany,

:. On Thuisday evening last, Geo. B. Perkins, son
of Mr. Gec. A. Perkins, of Athens, Pa., and clerk in
his father's store, disappeared under circumstances
which have very naturally, excited the apprehen
sion and alarm of his friends. Ile was in the store
between 9 and 10 o'clock in the evening, since
which time he has not been seen ; and all efforts
either to get trace of him or unravel the mystery• of
his disappearance have proved entirely futile. The
store was found closed in the morning, as usual,
every thing having been left in the customary man
ner within, and the door locked and key gone.—
Nothing whatever is known which could have form
ed an inducement to him to leave home in a clan
destine manner :Ake was a yours; man of good cha
ratter, and his family are among the most respec

The eircamstance is certainly a very mysterious
