Nonoura and Moarprasier. The young
Court do Paris entered first, lied by one of
the membejtt of the House. He penetrated
with difficulty as far as the semicircle, which
was crowded with officers and soldiers of the
National Guard. His presence produced a
UtelT unbrenion on the assembly. Almost
immediately afterwards the Duchess entered
and seated hrolf in an arm chair between
her two sons.
The hall was then forcibly entered by a
multitude of armed men of the lower orders
and National Guards. The princess and her
children then retired to one of the tipper
benches of the centre, opposite the presiden
tial chair. .
The greatest agitation and uprdar prevai
led, and when silence was restored M. Dupin
rose and announced to the assembly that the
King had abdicated in favor of his grandson,
and conferred the regency on the Duchess of
Orleans. A voice-frem the public gallery
"It is too late."
An indescribable scene of tumult en
sued. A number of deputies collected round
the Duchess and her children and the Dukes
of Nemours and Montpensier. National
Guards also rallied round the royal lamily.
M. Mario then ascended the tribune : his
voioe was drowned by deafening cries. When
silence was restored, M. Marie said that in
the critical situation in which the capital was
placed, it was urgently necessary to adopt
soma measures calculated to calm the popu
lation. Sinco morning tho evil had made
immense progress. Shall we proclaim the
Duke de Nemours or the Duchess of Orleans
regent t M. Cremieux, who followed, was of
opinion to uphold the new Government. M.
Genoude thought that an appeal ought to be
addressed to the people.
OJillon Barrot next ascended the tribune,
end advocated the rights of the Duchess du
Urleans. M. Lorochejaquelm supported the
appeal to the people. M. Lamartine and M.
Ledru Rollin insisted on the necessity of ap
pointing a Provisional Government. M. San
zet here put on his hat, and concluded the
sitting. The Princess retired, followed by
all tho members of the Centre, those of the
left olone remaining in the hall. The insur
gents then called, or rather carried, M. Du
pont de l'Eure to tho Presidential chair. Tho
tribune and all the seals were occupipd by
th- people and National Guards, and the
names of the following members of the Pro
visisual Government were proclaimed 11 midst
a scene which has not been witnessed since
the Convention :

This lirt was received with the cries of

The following proclamation has been posted

We received, by Telegragh from Boston
and by Express from New York, fuller partic

acter, its main features may be told in a
few words. .
France maintains her position as a republic,
and has been recognized as such by nearly
all the Ministers resident at Paris. The King
and Royal family, with M. Guizot, have ar

out 111 various parts of Europe, and in the
principal cities of Great Britain, but they seem
thus far not to have been very formidable.
From the synyopsis which we publish be
low1 it will be seen that the decrees of the
Provisional Government are of the most radi.
cal character, going far beyond simple repub
licanism, and embodying many of the princi
ples of Communism and Socialism. The
Chambers of Deputies and of Peers have been
abolished by proclamation of the people. The
municipal guard hns been abolished, and a

Paris, Feb. 29. Mr. Rush, Ambassador
of the United States, uccompanied by Dr.
Martin and Maj. Coussin, likewise wailed on
the members of the provisional government,
to whom he delivered a flattering address.
Mr. Rush's Address.
The following is the speech of Mr. Rush
the American Minister recognizing tho pro
visional government.
Gentlemen: As the Representative of the
United States, nnd charged with the care of
the rights and interesis of my country and
my fellow citizens residing in France, and
being at too great a distance to await instruc
tion from my government, I seize the earliest
opportunity of offering my congratulations,
persuaded that my government will approve
the step in which I have taken the initiative.
I cannot omit to remind you that the alliance
and friendship which has so long existed be
tween France and the United States I am
certain that loud and universal expressions of
hope arise in my country for tho prosperity
happiness and glory of France under the in.
stitutions now inaugurated in conformity with
the will of the nation. Americans have an
ardent hope that under the wisdom of France
these institutions will have results of which
tho magnanimous conduct of her people in
late events affords presage.
Under similar institutions the United Suites
have enjoyed 80 years of increasing prosper
ity with a government of stability, and if the
Union gives to others the choice of govern
ment, without interference, it naturally feels
gratified in seeing another nation under simi
lar institutions, assuring to themselves the
benefits of special order and public liberty.
Permit me to employ the words which
Washington, the great fonder of our Repub
lic, used on similar occasions and tenninate
this by adding my congratulations and the
earnest hope that the friendship of the two
Republics may be co-extensive with dura
tion. M. Abago's Reply.
M. Arago replied to Mr. Rush. He was
delighted to re-echo the words of Washington,
and hoped that a listing friendship would
spring up between the Republics.
M. Dupont De L'Eure, addressing the Am
barsidor, said, Sir, in offering my hand, I as
sure you that the French p.ple tonder the
hand of friendship to Americans.
Abuicatios of tiik King.- The act of

K7-0ur paper this week, contains news
and natter of the greatest importance, and
most thrilling character, and ought to be
preserved. Indeed, a newspaper is nothing
more or less than a weekly history of the
times, and the best history that can be writ
ten. Those who will file away their pa

find in them a treasure, worth twice the
cost of the original subscription.

foreign news, this week, has prevented us
giving as great a variety, as we had inten
ded, besides curtailing our editorial, which
wc must necessarily shorten.
K? The Bank note list on our fourth

by the city papers.
FX7 Useful and entertaining reading
matter will be found on every page of our
paper, arranged under different head?.
The Governor has signed the bill, giving
the Mine Hill &. Schuylkill Haven Rail
road, the right to extend their road to Sha
mokin. The road will be extended from
the present terminus, near Coal Castle, to
Ashland, over the Broad Mountain, with
out delay. From thence, to Shamokin,
there will be no serious difficulty in making
the road, while the inexhaustible beds of
fine coal on the route, will afford induce
ments of no ordinary character, to its early
completion. When this is once completed,
the road from this place to Shamokin,
would become a most valuable and impor
tant link, and would soon induce capitalists
to relay the same with heavy iron rails,
which the coal-trade alone, would justify,
independent of the lumber, grain, iron &.c,
seeking the Philadelphia mark' t. To Dan
ville also, a branch will be made, to accom
modate the vast iron trade of that region.
All of which, would make the road from '
the Susquehanna to the Schuylkill, one of
the most profitable in the stale.
Our readers will find a number of new
advertisements, in our colums, this week, to
which we invite their attention. Let no
one look with indifference upon the adver
tisements of a newspaper. They are not
only important to the advertiser, but to the
public as well as the printer. Advertising is
the very life and essence of a good news
paper, which gives strength and vigor to
its character. It is the natural salt and
seasoning that sustains and preserves it.
Show us a paper that has a meagre adverti
sing patronage, and it will, as a general
rule, exhibit on its face the want of this
proper alienment to nourish and sustain it.
For the truth of this we might refer to the
colums of all our ablest Journals. Ik-sides,
it gives character to the place, to business
and to all concerned.
The late murder at Philadelphia, of which
our readers will find a full account in our
columns, is one of the most cold blooded
and horrible acts of the kind, we have ever
recorded. The murderer it seems, has been
actuated solely by a spirit of revenge, and
blinded by his malice, has wreaked his
vengeance by imbruing his hands in the
blood of innocence. The persons who tes
tified against him several years previous,
for having stolen the velvet from the pulpit
of a church, at that time occupied the dwel
ling of his unfortunate victim whom he no
doubt intended to murder. Since the ar
rest of the murderer, the proofs have so
thickened, that conviction seems no longer
doubtful. Such was the excitement of the
populace, during the examination of the
prisoner in the state House, that the Mayor
feared his rescue, and summary execution
under Lynch law.
The neighbours have been guilty of the
most shameful and criminal neglect, as ap
pears from the testimony of one of them,
John Frank, who in coming home at 2
o'clock at night, discovered some one lurk
ing near the premises, he says :
" He has a distinct idea of his general ap
pearance, and it was tlwt of the prisoner j
when the murder happened, was awake;
heard Mrs. Rademacher halloo out; she ap
peared to halloo every time she got a blow ;
when witness first heard her scream, he
jumped out of bed, with his wife, and went
to the window.
Heard bud screams; she said" ' don' t ill
me;' Mr. Randemacher said. oh my God,
what have I done !' Mr. R. hallooed 'mur
der!' yory often; Mrs. R. cried out eight or
nine times; the cries became more faint,
and witness shut the window down aid went
to bed again!"
K?" Spurious Notes. One dollar notes
of the Erie Bank are in circulation. They
are not imitations of the 'Relief notes, but
purport to be genuine $1 notes of the bank.
There are, of course, no notei of that de
nomination, other than Relief notes, issued

7 John Jacob Astor, the great Million
aire, died at New York on Wednesday last
aged, 83 years.
In our city, the details of a most horrid
murder were developed yesterday, and the
sense of the commiu.ity shocked to an ex
treme not often realized in a city where law
is supposed to be respected, and morality to
predominate over brutality und the full scope
of demoniac passion.
The victim of this diabolical outrage was
Mrs. Catharine Rademacher, wife of C- L.
Rademacher, who resided at No. 39 north
Fourth street, nnd kept a German book and
homoeopathic medicine store. He occupied
the dwelling part of the house with a brother-in-law
named Augustus Koellner, the family
of the latter occupying the third story cham
bers and garret rooms as their apartments,
while Mr. R. and wife had the remaining
parts of the house their bed chamber being
in tho back second story.
From all the testimony given before the
coroner's jury, which investigation occupied
nearly the whole of yesterday, it apjiears that
Mr. Koellner and his w ife, and some of tho
adjoining neighbors, were awakened about
two o'clock in the morning by shrieks, groans
and noises, emanating from the chamber of
Mr. R.
Mr. Koellner. upon hearing the noise, p:o-
ceeded to the door of Mr. 11. 's chamber,
which opens into the entry, and found that it
was lustened : Ins wile was mere also. Iinlilimr
the lamp which she had hastily seized up from
their own chamber. After making an effort to
get tho door open or to obtain an answer from
within, the door wasopened by Mr. R., and he
came from his room covered with blood, and
staggered into the entry, exclaiming, '-Oh my
God; Oh my God." He was taken back by
Mr. K. a:id laid np:m the bed, when they dis
covered Mrs. R. lying on tho floor at the foot
of the bjd, weltering in her blood, a ghastly
Mr. Koellner went to the back window and
called for the noxt door neighbor, Mr. Shade
who it appears with his wife had already been
alarmed by tho screaming, groans, and by
noises which appeared to be that of persons
moving roughly backward and forward with
boots on. They hurd tho window pushed
up twice, and during tho interval there had
buen hunt (rruaus uttered, which was followed
by perfect stillness.
Mr. Shade and his wife went into the house
of Mr. Rademacher, nnd were soon followed
by other neighbors all of whom concurred
in uniting that they had heard the screaming
and the exclamation of Mr. Rademacher,
"Oh God, my father, my wife, or where is
my wife."
Upon tho post-mortem examination, the
body exhibited numerous itieised und contu
sed wounds scattered over the arms, head,
face, breast, and back, three of which were
considered mortal ; one on the left arm seve
red tho large blood vessels, and two on the
chest one just above tho breast bone had
penetrated the left lung this was a terrific
ff.ish. Besides these there were several
scratches, as if made with a knife and finger
Mr. Rademacher had been either assailed
with less violence, or had escnped the effects
of tho blows and thrusts inado at him, and
although severely wounded ho was left ulive,
but nimble to realize his condition or that of
his homo and family. Ho had received a
deep cut on the right ami ubove the elbow ;
another which nearly severed his ear; ano
ther on the left side of the head penetrating
to the scull bone. Ha was also very much
bruised about tho head, by blows inflicted ap
parently with the butt end of a pistol.
The case is an h pulling one, and the whole
affair, wrapped in such horrible mystery,
baffles all attempts at conjecture as to the
precise manner in which the dreadful deed
was committed, or who were the vile perpe
trators of such a cool, deliberate and unques
tionably premditated murder.
Mr. Rademacher' situation was such du
ring yesterday, that it was deemed highly
improper to enquire of him as to his know
ledge or recollection of any of the horrid de
tails. The testimony elicited by the Coroner
shewed that Mr. and Mrs. R. lived happily
together, and were, with a male friend and
acquaintance, enjoying themselves the even
ing before, hi a conversation, until about 1 1
It appears they retired to bed soon aftor
the above hour. The statement . of those a
bout tho housa show that tho doors and win
dows were all fastened as usual ; also, that
upon search being made through the house,
after the murder was known, every thing was
found just as they had been left the night
The back chamber window of the second
story, where Mr. R. and his wife were sleep
ing, overlooked a roof or shed covering an
area in the yard ; this roof, at the eaves, is
perhaps twelve feet from the yard, and not
more than two feet and a half at the top from
the sill of the window of the chamber, and
might be gained from the fence, which runs
on the lino of an alley from Fourth street a
long the southern side of the yard, p is
doubfed by some that live murderer or mur
derers got in this way, but the discovery of
blooded finger prints Upon the window shut
ter, and side of the window frame, and one
or two spots of blood on the fenco indicate
clearly that the perpetrators mado thoir es
cape by this way.
Mr. Frank, who lives hi the rear, came
home through the alley running in from Fourth
street, at a late hour; he supposes about a
half an hour bofore the alarm was given.
When going up the alley ho met a man, who
upon discovering him, after making a short
halt a few feet from him, started out, and
went down Fourth street.
Tho Coroner, upon examining tho bed and
bed-clothes, which were saturated with blood,
found the blade of a knife, apparently the
kind used by shoemakers, in tho bed, cover
ed wilh blood. It was broken off near the
handle, and had been ground down on the
back nea' the point tho handle was not
found. No other weapon or instruments were
found upon the premises. '
The deceased was the daughter of Godfrey
Sheek, Confectioner, in Arch street bolow
Seventh, was about 21 years of age, and had
been married two years and a half. She was
represented as being of a lively and cheerful
turn, nnd as far as far as was known made
no complaints respecting her domestic condi
tion. From the testimony of Mrs. Koellner, the
sister of the deceased, it seems that "about
eight or ten days ago, Mrs. Rademacher men
tioned that Mr. R.had told her, that while at
Mr. Wolfe's beer house in Dilwyn street near
Callowhill, one afternoon not long since, a man
came in and took very particular notice of
him, eying him all the time he was there.
This circumstance when told excited their
merriment, so little did they think of it.
The whole of the day was occupiad by the
Coroner in making tho investigation, and at a
late hour in th? evening the jury rendered the
following verdict Death from wounds in
flicted with one or more sharp instruments .
about 2 o'clock on thj morning of the 23d of
March, 184", in lur own bed-chamber, by
some person or persons unknown who, from
circumstantial evidence, escaped from the
premises after committing the deed.'
Various minors were afloat in relation to
this tmpic uffair, all of which we refrain ma
king allusion to at present.
The Supposku Mubdkker Arkestkd.
Nispicum having been entertained by the city
police and others against a German named
Charles Langfeldt, as the perpetrator of th
atrocious murder of Thurs lav mirninir. efforts
were uiadj to secure him, which we rejoice
to know were successful, and yesterday after
noon he was taken into custody and commit
ted for n henriuir before tho Mayor to day.
Thre seems to be n;i doubt of his iruilt.
Ho is a shoemaker, and thr? blade of th!?
knife found in tin b'd of Mr. Ra.leinaeh.T
has been fully recognised as one which the
prisoner used at work, anil which was particu
larly noticed by his fellow workmen on th 5
day ho commenced work and placed his tools
upon his bench.
It is stated that ho was not at li'imo th'!
evening previous to tho murder, but returned
to his lodging room about 3 o'clock in the
morning, and, that after coming in, he procu
red a basin of water and washed himself and
soma of his wearing apparel.
His coat or jacket, pantaloons, boots, and a
shirt, have been obtained, und nil have stains
or marks of blood on them. The shirt is
stained upon the bosom, and was taken from
his body. He wore it w ith the hinder part
in front, in order no doubt to hide the marks
of blood, and escape detection.
After his arrest and tli ! discovery of the
clothing, ho was put in irons and placed in
the lock-up.
Langfeldt, it will bd renieiiib .'ieil, was ar
rested and convicted four years apo, for rob
bing the German Lutheran Church, corner of
Cherry & Fourth streets, two doors above
were the murder was perpetrated, for which,
and tho robbery of the store, comer of Fourth
& Race s!s, he was sentenced to tho Eastern
Penitentiary for tho term of four years.
The term of his imprisonment terminated
on tho Ulh inst., when he was released from
his confinement, soon after, or immediately
after which, ho took boarding at Mrs. Mar
tin's in Front s'reet, near Vine, where he
was arrested.
At tho time of his cnnvietio.i, Langfeldt
threatened to be revenged upon hi prosecu
tors, and indeed all who contributed to his
arrest, &c. Ho then boarded wilh n family
in tha same house now occupied by Mr.
Rademacher. It is stated that since his dis
charge from prison, he had mado threats pe-
nerally against individuals.
Tho prisoner is a German by birth, but
says that he was reared in France. He is
about five feet nine inches in height, with
light hair and light complexion. All th" cir
cumstances point to him very strongly as ths
murderer, the certainty of which, tha evi
dence already obtained, and that to be ad
duced, will, it is believed, leave no doubt.
The excitement throughout tho city was
intense yesterday, and a crowd of persons
assembled around ths houss of Mr. Radema
cher. Mr. R., we learned yesterday, by inquiring
at his residence, was in a convalescent state.
A Li'katic's Act. Recently, at the vil.
lage of Aberdeen, Ohio, the daughter of Mr.
Volney Evans, an infant of three years, was
deliberately butchered by a lunatic. Mrs. E,
having occasion to visit a neighbor, left her
child asleep in the cradle, and a boarder in
the family, Struther B. Reed, sitting by the
fire reading the Bible. She had been gone
but a few minutes, when Reed went into the
yard and procured a board, which he laid on
the floor, and stepping to the cradle, jerked
from it tha little innocent with such violence,
as to force tha arm from its socket, and lay
ing her head on the board, deliberately chop
ped it with a broad-ax in five different pla
ces. After the deed was done, Reed walked
to the. kitchen and called the attention of the
servant woman to the horrid spectadle, who
instantly ran to the neighbors and gave the
alarm. When the house was reached, Reed
was again seated by the fire intently reading
his Bible. He was suhscqnnntly sent to the
Lunatic Akvliun.
