TERRIBLE 'NEWS FROM THE
Four days' Fighting !
THB ARCHBISHOP OP PARIS 1111TH
Fourteen Officers, Six Deputies, and Fifteen
Thousand Men Killed and Wounded.
THE REPUBLIC TRIUMPHANT.
The steamship Niagara, Capt. Shan

having made the run from Liverpool in
ten days and sixteen hours, including a
detention of six hours at Hal►fax.—
She sailed from Liverpool on the Ist
of July, and brings seven dnys later in
telligence from Edgland, and all parts of
The news is of more importance than
any that has been received from Eu
rope for weeks, if not months.
The news from France is of the most
intensely exciting character.
One of the bloodiest fights ever known
has just terminated in Paris. The Gov
ertitnent was triumphant.
The loss of life was immense—estima:
tell at from eight to ten thousand. Four.
teen Generals were among the slain
ThArelibishop of Paris was also killed.
The strife began in consequence of a
misunderstanding of a phrase used by
the Mayor to a deputation of workmen.
A person who had taken a prominent
part in the affair of May, was acting as
spokesman for the deputation, when the
Mayor asked them if they were not
slaves,which being reported, was the sig
nal for the out break. On Thursday night
barricades were erected, and t he Nation
al Guard turned out. The insurgents
seized all that portion of the city about
the Faubourg St. Antoine, and threaten
ed the Hotel de Ville.
On Friday, there was some fighting,
in which the insurgents were success
ful. Lamartine rode with the staff of
Gen. Cnvaignac to quell the insurrec
tion, but without effect. Artillery was
used, but at night the insurgents had
gained ground and strength.
On Saturday, the Assembly declared
its session permanent. The Govern
ment resigned the supreme executive
power, which was given to Gen. Cav
nignac, Who declared Paris in a state of
siege. The whole day was spent in
fighting, except a 101 l during a thunder
storm. The roar of Artillery and mus
ketry was terrible. On Saturday night
the state of the capital was awful.
Troops were pouring in from the neigh
boring departments. The red flag of
the Socialists was raised, and the fight
On Sunday, the President of the As
sembly announced that the government
bad completely succeeded in suppress
ing the revolt on the left side of the city,
and that Gen. Cavaignac had given the
insurgents on the right bank of the Seine
till 10 o'clock to surrender. If they did
not do so by that hour, preparations had
been made to bring the heaviest artillery
to bear upon them, and no doubt remain
ed that the insurrection would be put
down, This hope, however, was not re
alized. The fighting continued during
Sunday with a fearful loss of life.
Ob Albtidny, La►noricieres arrived
with reinforcements for Cavaignac. Af
ter two hours terrible slaughter the
troops of the Government curried trium
pl►antly the right part of the city, the
insurgents bc►ng slain, captured or sd►t
tered in every direction.
The last band took refuge in the Ce
metry Pero la Chaise.
On Tuesday the insurrection was def.
itiltely quelled. The loss of life has
The Archbishop of Paris was shot
while approaching the insurgents to
endeavor to propose peace.
He advanced, attended by his two vi
cars; towards the barricades, with an
olive branch borne before him, when he
was ruthlessly shot in his groin, and
fell mortally wounded. The venerable
patient was ordered by the insurgents
to the nearest hospital, in St. Antoine,
where he received the last sacrament,
languished and has since died.
The editor of the Pere Duchesne was
shot in the head. The number of pris
oners taken of the insurgents is over

women engaged in the affhir, treated
the prisoners with unexampled barbar
ity, cutting their hands and feet, and
torturing them in every conceivable
No less than three thousand stand of
arms were taken.
It will, probably, be never correctly
ascertained to what extent the sacrifice
of human life, in this fearful struggle,
has reached. Some compute the loss
on the side of the troops at from 9,000
to 10,000 slain, but me hope this is ex
aggerated. The number of prisoners
captured of the insurgents exceed 5,000.
All the prisons are filled, as well as the
dungeons and vaults of the Tuillories,
the Louvre, Palais Royal, the chamber
of Deputies, and the Hotel de Ville.
From the London Timm June 28
The city of Paris stands in the valley
of the river Sceine, in such wise, that
whilst the most central part of the city
occupies the islands and strand of the
river, the streets which diverge at right
angles from this point rise by a some
what rapid assent to the high ground on
each side of the valley. The centre of
the insurrection was established on the
low ground by the river. Its wings •
rested on these opposite heights. The
Hotel de Ville was its most advan
ced post in front, but all the narrow
streets and the quays from that building
to the Faubourg St. Antoine were in
the hands of the insurgents.
The attack was carried on upon this i
point by Gen. Duirvier, hut such were
the preparations of resistance made,
that, according to the written statement
of the Mayor of Faris to the National
Assembly, the whole district was con
verted into a vast fortress, which could
only be reduced stone by stone. The
streets were barricaded, the windows'
were lined with mattresses, from behind
which n murderous fire was poured down
on the troops, and the gangway of in
ternal communication had been opened
from house to house, which supplied
• nmunition or means of escape to the
besieged.. The progress of the force
from dais point, was accordingly very
slow, and it was in the rear of their po
sition that the final stand of the insur
rection was made.
But on Monday afternoon, the opera
tions were carried with equal skill and
courage at the two wings, for that term
may strictly be applied to the position
which the insurrection assumed. On
the left bank of the Seine, the left wing
extended to the Pantheon, by the steep
and narrow line of the Rue St. Jacques,
which was completely barricaded and
even fortified with cannon.
The attack on this position alone cost
15 hours hard and uninterrupted fight
ing; yet it was the first which was re
eonquered by the troops.
The attack on the right wing, which
extended to the ClosSt. Lazare, was
conducted by Lamoriciere, who gradu
ally forced his way on the third day to
the barriers and then effected his junc
tion with the central division of Gcn.
It may be inferred from the regular
distribution of the insurrectionary for
ces, that their plan was to exhaust their
troops by a fruitless attack upon the
barricades, and then to assume offensive
operations by an advance of the two
wings upon the National Assembly and
the west • end of Paris, so as to place
the government between the fires, and
reduce it to inevitable destruction. The
extent of organization which the exe
cution of such a plan, extending over
a line of several miles in length, and
maintained for the last four days, dis.
closed, is perfectly inconceivable.
Every species of artifice was employ
ed to convey ammunition. The pails
of the millc women, the couches of the
wounded, and even the coffins of the
dead, were found filled with gunpowder
and cartouches. Large sums of money
in gold, and notes, were discovered on
the persons of men apparently in ex
treme poverty, and of young children.
The women of Paris took a most active
part in the struggle; they conveyed or
ders and signals through the hottest
They carried off the wounded ; some
of them perished in the barricades, or
fired from the houses on the soldiers,
while some arc even reported to have in•
flicted the most relined barbarities upon
their wretched fellow citizens who had
fallen prisoners into their hands ; none
were spared by any chance the in
discriminating fury of this general
slaughter. The Archbishop of Paris
who, in the sublime exercise of the most
awful duties of a christian priest, sought
to bring back that analogous multitude
to reason and peace, was basely shot
'front the back of a baricade, and Gen.
Negrier, who had survived the nume
rous campaigns of Africa, fell in like
manner at a parley with the savages of
the faubourg St. Antoine.
So vast and horrible a desolation,
wrought in the heart of a city by the
hands of her own citizens, the world
has not witnessed in the whole survey
of historic memory ; and the arms of a
stranger and an enemy would have been
devoted to eternal infamy, if they bad
inflicted so awful a chastisement on the
great city of Paris. None but herself
could punish her ingiuities, or in•
flict her doom.
What formed, however, the strength I
of this city, which is twelve or fifteen
high at intervals of 8 or 10 yards, and
I the creation by that means of several :
hundred loop holes. When those who
have been at Waterloo learn that for
more than a mile the wall of the ctiy of
Paris was as profusely furnished with
loop holes as was the garden wall of
Hongement, they will easily imagine !
, how formidable was the obstacle it pre
! seined. When they shall bear in mind
that the barracks in advance were com
posed of pave stones of a hundred weight
each, ar of the cut stones of a hospital
in process of erection, and that they ;
were protected by houses adjoining to
; or commanding them, and that occasion
presented itself, throughout Saturday
and Sunday, a constant, unerring and
deadly fire was kept up on the assail
ants by an almost invisible garrison, they I
will not be surprised at the prolonged
resistance, nor at the immense loss of
life amongst the troops and National ,
Guards that unfortunately occurred.
From the London Times June 29.
The positivn of the insurgents through
out the line I have mentioned, was im
menseley strong. The barricades in ad
vance of the barriers were as formida
ble as regular engineers could have con
structed them; the houses covering them
occupied the means of passing from one
to another ; the toll houses of the barrier
were occupied by them, and the corrri
dors removed ; the houses on the side
of the Boulevarde were, moreover, in
the possession of the rebels, and manned
What will be the astonishment of the
and the feelings of all military
men inparticular, when they are told
that the whole of these works were
' defended by between 80 and 100 ruffians,
the largest number stated was 400.
How many of the insurgents were
• killed on Sunday at the barrier Rache
chonart think you, while the loss of the
' armed force was more than 1000 ?—two,'
one of them was shot through the brain
! while firing through a loop hole not six
inches in diameter. Five were wounded ;
they ran from loop-hole to loop-hole
! with the agility of monkeys.
They only left the corner of the high
wall to seek nmunition of which they
had only a scanty and precarious sup
! ply. I was shown the mark of the cru
cible under the wall in which they mel
ted lead for bullets during the fight.
They even attempted to fabricate
gunpowder against these men ; were
brought as fine nn army and as servi
, cible a park of artillery, as the world
' could produce, and nothing less would
have suffered to disloge them, this po
sition had been turned, and they had
been attacked in the rear.
Let us recollect, however, also, that
on 800 points of Paris the troops occu
pied in contending with the rebels, at
the same moment, and how this might
have embarrassed the Generals, that the
usual means of obtaining information
were not available, and when informa
tion was obtained to be relied on.
When these facts shall be taken into
considerat ion there will not be so much
surprise at the offensive and defensive
efforts of the rebels who though com
paratively fewer in numbers, were in
timately acquainted with the ground,
strongly fortified and supported by the
sympathies and the positive co-ope
ration of the whole population of the
continuous line of towers that borders
The news from Mexico proves that
the fears of insurrection against the
; present government, on the withdraw
el of the American army, were well
founded. Paredes has already taken a
bold step to place himself in power.

most miserable condition. The follow

! By the absence of the American troops
and especially of their money, the in•
habitants are left in a state of frightful
misery, having no other means of sub•
sistence than robbery and assasination.
The existing Government has the most
serious grounds of disquietude on ac
count of the movements of Paredes and
Jarauta. The troops which it has sent
against them are revolting and swelling
the ranks of the insurgents. The fall
of Herrera is imminent, and the war will
