The grenter portion of the wretched promotors of this iiisniKí moveraent are now either i the hands of tlio authnrities or reduced to a condition which will not admit of their dolug felther haim. Louis Blnnc, liowcvcr, s still nt liberty, nlthbugh there are strong grounds for suspectitig t!mt he wns actually wit h the conspirat.ors duting the twu liours lie was absent from the National Assembly on Mondny.

Still a feeling is prevalent thnt the (Jovernment is feeble, ni)d the ultraDeinocrntic party in the nscendiuit, but tho presnniption is scaroely warranted judging frotn the resulta of the determinad hearing exhibited by the majority of thfi interim Government.

After the mob haJ been drlven out of ti. o hall of the National Asseinblv, on the 15th they marched to the Hotel de Ville. to appoint a conimittre of Public Safety ; ar.d M. M.

PeaitloB of ï.smia ïïlür.c. The part taken by Louis Blanc in the afi'ray of the 15th is yeí nvolved in some mystery. He camiot, U is supposed, clear hiinself ot' complicity in this matter. Diiiin the time that the mub had possession of the Assembly, he, us well as Barbes, Albert and Gen. Courtais, iniügled with the crowd in the ante-cbatnbera and lobbies, shook thein by ihe hand and expressed his conlidence in thein. - When Albert and Barbes went to the Hotel de Ville, M. Louis Blatic also qnitted the Assembly, bilt ibrtunately tor himself. he did not BCCOinpauy thein to the Hotel de Ville, and he has not giveii miy explanation ol' where he was in the interval. - Bat eerteinly, at'ter tlio failure of the atlempt to establish a Provisional Government, ho reappeared and declared soleinnly that he was peifectly innocent of all participation in tno events of the day. - A declaration which was received with shouts of derision and contempt. It appears that the Government nscertained thnt tile invasión of the Assembly was a regula rly organized conspiracy, and that the insui-rection was iatendsd to bivak outat tli3 same instant Rt Lyons, fcita probiibly at ofher places. A Telcgraphic Dispateh was sent off to the anthoritiesat Lyons toinforra them of their danger, and to nnnounca the suppres8Íoa of the insurrection in Paris. The grent point of solicitude and attention on Tuesday niglit was the Prefecture of Pólice. The neighborhood wiis coinpletely blocked up with troops ; the Point Neuf was covered with i-egini'-nts of infnnliy oftlio line and of the Grado Mobile so as to leave barely room fór a cnrriajjre to i)ass.
