Terrible Massacre at Naples.—On Saturday, the
13th, in the morning, at Naples, the Deputies were
assembled in the Salle de Monte Olive tto, in proper.
glory seesion, to modify the form of oath to be ta
ken at the opening of Parliament. The oath was
in these terms : swear fidelity to the King and
the constitution of 29th January." The Deputies
were opposed to this form, because it was not in
consonance with the concessions of 3d April. Sat.
urday end Sunday passed in negociations. In the
evening, at eleven o'clock. it was announced that
the King would not modify the form.
The Deputies, to the number of BD, met, declared
Themselves in permanence, and sent a deputation
to the King to treat es to a modification. The King
refused. The National Guard went in great num
bers to Monte Olivetto to persuade the Deputies to
persevere. About midnight another deputation
was sent to the palace, when the King demanded
time. A modification of the oath was then pro
posed, in which a reservation of the rights confer

The National Guard, however, refused to lower

fortresses, and the removal of the troops from the
capital. This being declined, the troops were
again ordered out, and the squares of the palaces
and other places were covered with armed forces,
including a great quantity of artillery.

derous fire of musketry by battalions, and the ar.l
finery commenced a tremendous discharge of
grape; the conflict, in fact became general. At
the barricades of' San Fernando and San Bridgida,
the National Guard sustained a fire of musketry
and artillery for three hours, without yielding an
inch of ground.
On the commencement, the lower orders seemed
disposed to take the side of the National Guard ;
but being offered by the King and the troops the
privilege of pillage, they - wok the other side.
Doors and gatesof shops and private houses were
soon forced, and a general pillage and massacre
commenced to cries of "Vire el Rey I" The sig
nal of attack was given by three guns from the
fort, when the red flag was raised.
Unheard of atrocities were perpetrated by the
lazzaroni and - the troops. They rushed into the
private houses, and massacred the inhabitants with
out distinction of age or sex, flinging the bodies of
their victims from the windows. In one house
were shot a father, mother, and four children.—
Other victims were dragged alive through the
streets, to be butchered.struck as they went along,
and insulted by the agents of the police and sol
diers, who compelled them to cry " Vire el Rey."
When they refused, they were pricked in the face . :
by the points of the bayonets. The royal guard
murdered two sons of the Marquis Varianten, in his
own palace; the father went stark mad. The pe.
lace was sacked. The emissaries of Del Caretto,
and according to some account., Del Caretto him
self, were employed in goadiug on the rabble to
those acts of atrocity. Several persons known to I
entertain liberal opinions, were dragged from their
houses and shot,
The massacre continued for eight hours. The
hospitals were filled with wounded. In one Swiss
regiment alone there were 200 killed and wounded,
of which 30 were officers. Government was pro
