V VXIOHT 9T LOUS "HIIAiPPE A1TD FAMILY, j The official statement (hat the ex-King of ths French end his family had tended in Eng. lend, hee been fully Confirmed, end it now appears that their arrival took p lnce t New haven, on Friday, the 3d of March. The i following details of their escape, landing, end subsequent journey to Clateniont, will be Interesting : The King reached the chateau, at Drcux, on tho night of the 24th. It was stated that on hk arrival there he had only a solitary firs-franc pieco in his pocket. That he had Ten this was owing to the presence of mind of the Queen, who, remembering in the hurry of leaving tho chateau that they were with out money, returned, at some risk, to a bureau in which were few hundred francs. These, however, scarcely ssrved to defray the expen ses of the journey. A letter from Dreux says " Louis Phillippe mrrived at the chateau here. A si ppcr was sent out for amongst the public eating housor of the town. Ho slept at the chateau, after having sent for the Sub-Perfect and some in timate acquaintances. He was in a state of complete prostration, and repeated each mo ment ' Like ChwU-s X!' He left next morn ings in a hired carriage, and by by-roads to Vernon." On his arrival at Versailles Louis Philippe and his suite, not finding any post-horsos. were obliged to ask for horses from a rcgi . incut of cavalry. His flight had been so rapid and unfurseen that he was forced to make at Trianon a collection among the offi- cers, which produced two hundred francs. The flight, it is said, was marked by an incident which does much honor to the feci iugs of the Parisian population. At the mo ment the ex-King was escaping by the little low doorway nearly opposite the bridge, and going into the little carriage that waited for him, he found himself surrounded by the people. The cuiiawiers stationed in the Place de la Concorde niched to his .protec tion, and this bravo regiment, without, how ever, uting their arms, opened a postage. An officer, seeing the danger, cried out "Mes sieurs, spare the King !" To which a stento rian voice replied, "We are not assassins; let him go." "Yes, yes! let him go ; qu'il par te," became the general cry. Tho King was accompanied in his flight by ; the Duchess de Nemours ami three of her children, the Duke and Duchess Aiiguste of Saxe-Cobnrg, with their youthful family and tho Duchess de Montpensier. The latter se parated from the King and took their way to England. After much wonder had been expressed in K igland as to his whereabout. Louis Phillip pe and his Queen lauded in E.igland, at New hivnn, on tha 3d fust. At Dreuv, it npppar a farmer procured disguises for the royal fu gitives and suite, tha King habiting himself in an old cbak and an old cap, having first shaved his whiskers, discarded his wig, and altogether so disguised himself as to defy the recognition even of his most intimate friends. . . The other disguises were also complete. The King passed for an Englishman 0:1 his travels. They proceeded in n bout from llarfleur to Havre. In the meantime infor mation was secretly conveyed to the Express, Southampton steamship, that she would be required to tuke a party from Havre to Eng land. The fugitives embarked in the Ex press, and at 12 o'clock on Friday landed. . The moment the King set his foot on the " shore he emphatically exclaimed "thank God, I am 011 British ground." Mr. Sims, the landing waiter, who handed them on shore, conducted them to the Bridge Inn. . Ouo who was present says "A crowd of villagers had assembled near the landing place, and when the ex-King stepped onshore many of them pressed forward and shook hands with the exiled Monarch. The ex King appeared very much moved at this ex- - hibitiou of feeling, and acknowledged the same in a very courteous manner The ex-King was very scantily atiired. He wore a rough pea-jacket, which, it is said, he borrowed of the Captain of the Express, and grey trousers. He had 011 his h"ad a close blue cloth cap, and around his neck he Kore a common red and white comforter. His apparance was not at all improved by his beard, which was of uppaietitly about a week's growth. In other respects, though apparently Buffering from fatigue, the ex Miiuarch losked pretty much like himself. The Queen wore a large plaid clouk over her dress, and carefully concealed her features with a thick veil. ' p the way to the inn the King was met !y several of the inhabitants, who offered thir congratulations on his safe arrival, and with whom he shook hands most cordially. Hi Majesty looked fatigued and care-worn. The King sent for Mr. Packhmn, who had been a tenant of some mills belonging to liiin in France, and who knew him intimately. Mr. Puckhant waited on him, and it appears that every attention was paid to his wishes by all parties. The London Times says, -,'Lear.-iiiig that Mr. Pack ham was at the inn, our reporter immediately sought him out, - yrhtn Mr. Pdckham at once introduced him his Majesty. The King, who wasengaged reading a newspaper, immediately rose and said, 1 thank you, gonilenren, and all whom I have met in England, for these kind con gratulations, and the hospitality which hag been show me." Hit Majesty hud changed Ju' attire, and was dressed in a plain suit of black. He looked well, and the marks of anxiety which had hown themselves at his landing had disappeared. He was quite roerfik The Queen was in the room wri ting a letter, and apparently buired in thought. She scarcely noticed the presence of atran- '(era. Several persons were introduced to the "tiff during the day. He seemed gratified it Ukeir calling, and poke freely and plea- tatty to all his visitors. Before Mr; Packiam left him, the King gave Jiinj the whole of hi money for the purpose of getting it exchanged for English oin, and purchasing wearing apparel, "of VHtoV wid 'k Kino inilnfcr " um re,y , .ir . . vther write says, the ex-King granted - ,taSae to . several . infetbitaats from uVT' They were waived most card J .': v.'j.v-.; Louis Phillippe, clasping his hands, ns if overpowered by his emotions, began imme diately to speak on the subject of the Revo lution. "Charles X," exclaimed tho ex-King, "was destroyed for breaking the Charter, and I have been overthrown for defending it, and for keeping, my oath. I wish this to be dis tinctly understood, and 1 hope it will be made known. The cx-King and Queen of the French left New Haven in a royal carriage shortly after nine o'clock on Saturday morning, accompa nied by several French officers from Bright on, and attended by the Hon. Capt. Hotham, one of the Directors of the Brighton Railway, and they arrived at the Croydon station at precisely twenty minutes past twelve o'clock. The Duke de Xfmours, the Duke and Du chess of Cobourg, and Count de Jarnac, and two general officers, whose names we could list learn, left London by an early train to a wait the arrival of the royal strangers. A large party of tht; directors wera in waiting To receive thein. Upon the arrival of the royal earring.', Cap Hotham put his lraJ out, and gave a signal to tha directors. When tho door of tho royal carriage was opened, his Majesty stepped out, and upon seeing him, his daughter, the Duchess of Cohuig, g.ive a stifled scream. He was immediately locked in the arms of his son, the Duke do Nemour, whom he embraced wi h great warmth, and ins'antly after he pressed his daughter to his bosm in the most affectionate manner. His Majesty was overpowered, and shed tears, as did his daughter also. The seeno was a most mo ving one, and one not easily forgotten. The Queen upon stepping from the carriage af fectionately embraced her children and was greatly agitated. The royal party were then ushered by the directors to tha waiting room, where they were left to give way in private to the mi.i gled emotions by which they were agitated. After remaining a few minutes together, the royal paity intimated their readiness to de part Tha Duchess de Montpensier, the innocent cause of all the uproar, after been scared from the palace by the inroads of the mob wandered about th streets of Paris until five o'clock that day, nccomiianied by on old Spa nish servant, who knows not a word of French She was met in the Rue du Havre, close to the railway station, by a gentleman, who. knowing her by sight, took upon himself to protect her and conduct her to his house. Hjw she managed to stray unmolested and unrecognized so far from home, is a mystery to this hour. She says, that seeking to avoid th'! crowd, sin? turned down the streets which seemed most free, without caring whither they might lead. The Duke de Nemours, the Dnke and Ducht'ss of Saxe Coburg (Princess Clemen tine.) and tha Count de Jarnac, arrived in Loudon on Sunday the 27th. From their es cape from the French capital having been the act of a moment, not the slightest lug gage was btotigh', so that in fact none of them puss "ss a change of garment. On taking their departure from Paris, the Dnke de Nemouis went by one route and the Duchess (cousin of Prince Albert ) by another, intending to meet or join at the same road at a place appointed. It was not discovered till the Duke reached the coast that the Duchess had not preceded him. It appears now that she was unfortunately left behind. Anothrr Horrible Murder al Philadelphia. ' A Wife Killed by her Husband, and a'temp ted Suicide of the Murderer. On Saturday night, between ten and eleven o'clock, a most horriblo murder was perpetrated at the cor ner of Schuylkill Sixth and Thompson streets in thj district of Pent), by William Bechtel. who, i 1 tlir lower story of his residence, cat his wife's throat, causing her death a short time nfterwanU. Bechtel, it app ars, h:id returned home about Oi o'clock with one or two companies, and his wife, with a female relative, living up stairs, came home a few minutes afterwards. After an inquiry by him wh?n they hud been, and some other conversation between them, ha went up to his wife, who was sitting on a chair, and ta king her by the hud with one hand, inflicted a deep gash on h?r thraat with a largo jack or clasp knife which In held in the other, Tho woman ran towards the door and made an effort to get into the street, but was pre vented. Tlu alarm was soon given, and se veral neighbors arrived, with Drs. Naudain and Gardiner, but no assistance could be ren dered by them to avert the fatal result. The physicians discovered that several blood ves sels had been severed, and the wound was altogether of such a serious nature as to pre. elude much hope of any benefits resulting from the application of medical or surgical skill, She was unable to speak, and lingered for thirty or forty minutes, when she expired While she was yet bleeding, Bechtel made an attempt upon his own life by inflicting a wound upon his throat with the same knife. TI18 gash, however, was not very deep, and the timely interference of Lewis Rice and Mahlon Hibbs prevented him from consum mating his suicidal design. The knife was taken from him, and he was arrested and conveyed to the Spring Garden watch-house. Hn had a hearing yesterday morning before Alderman Lutz, police magistrate of Spring Garden, and was committed to prison. Fail is the Funds. The London Times, of the 6th inst., speaking of the fall of the British and French funds (as the public debt of these countries is called) says that : 'To state the aum of this depression, it may suffice to observe that a property, which in all hands, in England and in France, can not be worth leas than twelve hundred mil lions of English pounds sterling, (equal to 5,796 millions of dollars, at $4 83 per pound,) sank in three days to a market value of only eleven hundred millions" (or 5,313 millions of dollars, being a fall in value of $483,000,. 000.") Complimemary. At a recent examina tion of Law Students at Rochester, the Nudge intimated that majority of them were puraoaculia, but to spare their feelings, he would admit them all to the bar.

THE FLIRIIT OF LOII4 PHILLIPPE. The flight of Louis Phillippe from Paris, is one ol those extraordinary circumstances 111 the history of the world, that seldom happens more than once in a life time. It is but eighteen years since Louis Phil lippe ascended the throne, not of France, but of the French, undor circumstances that should have enabled him, in connection with his previous trials and experience, to have secim-d a firm luld on the affections of his people, and without which, the mon. arch of the present day, find that they hold their thrones but by a precarious te nure. Louis Phillippe sustained thp char acter of a mild and amiable man and an in dulgent parent, fond of domestic enjoy, ments. His recent flight and tho circum stances connected with it, of which our readers will find a full account, provesmost conclusively that he was greatly d.'icient in firmness and energy, as well as of judg ment. It may be said that allowances should be made for his advanced are, being 75 years, but we have never heard that his mental or oven constitutional vigor had been much impaired. 'There were, how ever, but slight hopes, that a monarchical form of government could be of long dura tion in France, and the opinion has long since been general, that at the death of Lou is Phillippe, a Revolution of some kind was unavoidable. Thn French people have long been looking forward for a Republican form of government, and had not the pre sent Revolution occurred, it must have hap pened under other circumstances before long. The men now at the head of the government, are among the best men of France. This is the best evidenee of the permanancy of the present Republic. They have abolished every vestige of royalty and are alxmt to establish a government even more democratic than our own. NORTH BRAM'II CANAL. It will be seen by the proceedings of Legislature, that the supplement to the bill incorporating the North Branch Canal Co., has been reconsidered and passed. We look upon the completion of the North Branch Canal, as a work of great imttortance, and hope to see the state resume possession of this important work, at as early a day as possible. This canal, when completed' will open a vast trade with the interior of the state of New York, in the exchange of plaster, salt, &c., for the coal of the Wy oming valley. Gen. Taylor. On our first page, our readers will find an excellent article on the character of Gen. Taylor, from the Philadelphia Bulletin.

Th bill to erect a new county, to be called M lhantnngo, out of parts of Dauphin, Schuylkill and Northumberland was taken up, on second reading, and after being discussed by Messrs. Gratz, Bnyer, Fox and Frick, the question being taken on the first section it was negatived ; therefore tho bill was lost. Harrisbvro, April 1st. Senate. Mr. Overfield offered the follow, ing resolution, which was adopted: Resolved, That the Mine Hill and Schnyl kill Haven Railroad Co. be requested to fur nish a statement to the Legislature specily ing the amount received during the past year for tolls and motive power respectively ; and also tha expenses incurred for rnotive power and the amount of net profit on tolls and mo t!ve power respec'ivi ly ; also the objects to which the depreeiiition fund, referred to in their reports, have been applied, and the a mount of such fund remaining unexpended; also to designate the authority under which said fund is critcd.

Mr. Myers opposed th"? amendment, on the ground tint it would 1)3 doing injustice to the smaller class of dealers. Mr. Blair maintained that to raise the tax enormously high was laying a tariff on the consumer. Ma would be willing to raise the tax to 50 per cent. After a few remarks from Messr. Mye Smith (ol Philadelphia) and Ball, the question was taken on the amendment, which was ne gatived.

MASS MEETING 1 NEW YORK. The New Yorkers held an immense Mass meeting on Monday last, for the pur pose of congratulating the French on their achievements of Freedom in France. The papers say 100,000 persons were present The following is an extract of a speech of Geo. Rogers, of England : It has been often said England is the cra dle of liberty then rock it well until it be comes a giant, overshadowing the length and breadth of the land. It is only men like my self, that, having spent years of my time un der the rule of a monarchy, and a similar period in this great country, can properly ap preciate the slavery of the one, or the liberty of the other ; and I will give you my view of both in what I style a contrast : (quoat ing a British author.)

The following sketch of the Ministers of the French Republic and leaders of the re cent Revolution, will be read with interest, at tho present time. There is probably, no government in the world, that can boast of a cabinet composed of so many eminent men eminent, not only for their learning and intelligence, but for their devoted patrio tism. With such men at the head of the government, and with a determination to adopt a constitution similar to our own, we shall never ilespair of the French Republic. DcroitT (de t' Ei re,) the President of the Council, is a Nestor in the public service, be ing 81 years of age, and having been more than 60 years in public life. His inflexible integrity and lofty sense of duty are prover bial. Elected a Deputy from l Eure, at the Restoration, ho immediately resigm d a pro fitable and highly honorable magistracy which he hnd before enjoyed, deeming its continu ed tenure incompatible with the proper dis charge of the duties of his new station, and thus administered a cutting rebuke to the cro.vd of functionaries that then, os lately, crowd the Chambers. He was the close friend of La Fayette, and through the influ ence of the latter, became thi First Minister of Justice under Louis Philippe, who was an xious to secure for his new administration the benefit of his name and influence. Not long after, Dnpont thought he discovered Ma chiavelism in the King, and indignantly with drew from tho Cabinet. Ho repulsed with d is Jo in all attempts to conciliate him by of fering him a seat on the bench of the High Court of Appeals. Though poor, ho was no Trojan to accept presents from tho Greeks, and has ever since opposed the Orleans gov ernment with the most unwavering resolu tion. In 1842, he was elected a D.-piity by three different colleges. His advanced age has prevented his taking a very active part in the late Revolution, or the acts succeed ing it, but yet his name is a tower of confi dence. LF.nnti Rot. lin, the Minister of the Interior was formerly an advocate in the Court of Cassation ; but he acquired most of his re putation in the Chamber of D eputies. He is a forcible public speaker, and has great bold ness of character. He never attached him self to any political party, but always advo cated his own measures and opinions in per fect independence. La Reform", one of the ablest of the smaller Parisian journals, is heavily indebted to his pen and purse for its talent and success. Cremiecx. the Minister of Justice, is a Jew; and has acquired a national reputation both as a lawyer and a Deputy. He former ly practiced his profession in the South of France, but some 18 or 20 years ago removed to Paris. Here ho made his debut by defen ding one of the Ministers of Charles X., im peached at the Revolution iu July, and saved him from death. Cremieux was a leading he ro in the Reform banquets. He is a man of sliinining talents; his legal superior can scarcely bfl found in the nation. Marie, the Minister of Public Works, has long been known as one of the extreme oppo sition. He is a good speaker, and u lawyer of considerable eminence. Goodchaux is the Minister of Finances, and Carnot the Minister of Public I istrcc tion, but neither is a member of tha Prov: visional Government. The former is a Jew ish banker, who has for a number of years taken an active part in tho editorship of The National, where he has displayed much ta lent and a remarkable knowledge of financial afTairs. The latter is a son of the illustrious Carnot, of the other Republic, and is a ripe scholar, of elevated and firm principles. To siy more of Arauo than what I remark ed in one of my last letters would bo super fluous. His reputation as a man of science is world-wide. As a politician he always maintained his liberal opinions with the great est ability and fearlessness. No man is more independent of cliques and factions. Fran cois Arago was never a slave t ) any:hing mortal but once ; and then ho wasmade so by stress of circumstances. Having been sent to Spain to make some observations on longitude, tho vessel in which he sailed fell into th? hinds of the Algeriues, and for mouths he suffered bondage. If size and weight are a controlling element in th ) valua tion of slave property, Arago must have been deemed a rich prize by his barbarian masters, for his stature is Herculean. But after all, the great head and front of the Administration is the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the gifted, chivalrous I.amaktine- His genius is visible in every measure, his hand in every proclamation. I spoke warm ly of him in my former letter : but he con stantly grows in my admiration. He, indeed is a wonderful man, whom Providence seems to have designed for this national emergency. With a heart to feel, a head to plan, a ton gue to persuade, and a will to execute, he exercises a power almost irresistible. He is the man to inspire the heart of young France with a generous enthusiasm and lofty purpose that will accomplish triumphs, before which Marengo and Austerlita will sink into obli vion. No domagogue, no flatterer of the crowd by the magic power of his eloquence! he "wields tho fierce democracy" at 'his so vereign will. His words are electric; they thrill and melt the sternest hearts. Conchessional. The debate upon the re solutions tendering congratulations to F runes upon the establishment of a Republic in that country was continued on Friday, by Messrs. Baldwin, Allen and Downs, without any ac tion upon the subject. In the House, on Friday, a message was received from the President, notifying the House that he had signed the bill authorizing the loan for sixteen millions of dollars. The session was principally occupied in the con sideration of private bills. The Senate was not in session on Saturday, and the proceed, ings of the House were devoid of interest. Mr. Clat received a fee of eight thou sand dollars for his service on Behalf of Houston and others, in the mit against the City Bank at New Orleans, wherein he gained a favorable decision.- BALTIMORE CONfERENCE M.

But classic instrument the woik is o'er; Thine arci"nt glory shall besui'g no more : No more, at eve, h"ii gmtle. dews descend, Thy graceful curve shall o'er his ehoiilder bend While ilia tired reap'-r homeward wends his way To c!oo h's lab rs with tha closing day. Nor yet th' C.a.lle shill its ho lors keep, And cut tha yielding corn with lengthinl sweep : With its long lingers grnsptho precious grain, And strew the even swath along tho plain. 1 that lair land which silvery seas enclose, Midway where, Kalamazoo westward Hows, And wh"re, midst waving fit 1 Is and mec dows gav, Th famed St. Joseph winds it devious way, Thre is a plain pxterdirg far and wide, Fair as Italia in her day of pride ; Fertile as Egypt when her garnerd corn Fed famished Israel : h'?re at early morn fioas forth a train with banner steed and car At armed band prepared for glorious war: Not the fierce strife when hosts with hosts engage, And thousands fall to glut a tyrants rage, But nobler far the warfare thev maintain Of useful art upon tho rip 'ned grain. How shall I sing how skill and art prevail To join the sickle wi'h the fan and llail ? How at one stroke tha laden ears are shorn And ready sack is filled with winnowed corn ? Vast the machine which wheels immense sus tain, And twelve proud s'eeds propel along the plain ; H age as that fatal gift that bare concealed, Those treacherous foes who caused proud Troy to yield: Or that vast car before whofecnihhing wheels fO blind to truth ;) the Indian pagan kneels! But not for me in tuneful verse to name The various parts of this ingenious frame, Which with such skill a cunning hand hath wrought. They move consenting to the maker's thought, And the glad fdrmer sees performed, the while, By tireless hands his tedious three-fold toil. O wonder-working art! by Heaven designed lo bring reiiet 10 weary numan kind ; Thn curse to soften passed on guilty man, And e'en remove it if aught earthly cant Since first our exiled parents learned of thre To clothe thair naked limbs from leafy tree, No single work of thine will farther go To lift that curse from off the laborer's brow ; Yet something, sober art, we lose by thee ; Thou lea vest not the poet's fancy free; Thy noisy progress in confusion flings His peopled world of fond ideal things : No mermaid haunts the steamer's dashing side To wile the sailor 'neath the briny tide, Nor where all day thy clattering wheels have . been At night will fend fairy d&noe Upon tha greea. t.
