News from Paric Growing More Serious ‘ PARIS AS LIKELY TO RISE AGAINST NAPOLEON AS TO ARM AGAINST PRUSSIA. Mayekce, Aug. 8. The great battle of Saturday was a complete victory for the Prussians. Bismarck tele graphs that it was won at Hagenau by the third German army, under command of the Crown Prince Frederick William, over the united French corps dc armee of Marshals McMahon, Canrobet and Defailly. Up till now C000 prisoners liave l>een brought in. over one hundred of whom are officers. Be sides these, six m trailleurs, thirty odd cannon and two eagles were taken. Paris. Aug. 8. The Emperor has sent a despatch to the Empress Eugenie, in which he states that Gen. McMahon had five divisions of the French army < ngaged in the battle at Hagenau, but that Gen. Failly was unable to join bill), ef I fectivelv. with his command. During the i fight the.French made several hold and bril I liant charges. | It is reported that Marshal McMahon is at tempting to retreat upon Nancy. Gen. Fres sard. wiien retreating, after the late engage I mt-nt near Hagenau, left in tlie hands of the Prussians tlie entire baggage in an encamp ment of two divisions of Ins command. Noon.—The city at this hour is tranquil. •Tlie intense excitement prevailing during the night and early this forenoon has quieted down. The Journal Official contains the follow ing despatches : Metz. Aug. 7,—9:30 P. M. In the battle of Saturday near Kiesehotfen, McMahon’s chicf-of-staff, Gen. Colson, was shot by the Marshal's side. Gen. Hovoult is among the missing. Our artillery suffered heavily, i Marshal McMahon is now in communication with Gen. Faillev. Metz is preparing for a vigorous defence. The General commanding the fortress, has ordered Germans and strang ers to provide themselves with a permission of residence. Tlie Journal says that the relations of fhe government of the Emperor with foreign powers, continues everywhere satisfactory, and believes that tlie late cvcpts are far from prejudicing. This state of affairs renders more significant tlie fact that what the gov ernments desire in common with France, is tlie maintenance of the European equilib rium. An imperial decree has appeared convoking the Senate and Corps Lcgislatif to-morrow. The report of the Minister of War ap proved by tlie Empress, is published in the Official Journal. The Minister says: Ex isting circumstances oblige us to provide for the defence of the capitol, and to garrison it witli fresh troops, and allowing all those which the Emperor keeps under his orders, to control the open country against an enemy emboldered hv his first success to the point of marching on 1 aris. But Paris is not to la* taken unaw ares. The exterior forts received their armaments some time ago, and already we have commenced to arm the walls around the city. A state of seige has been declared to facilitate at the execution of certain works which will he commenced to-morrow; thus the exterior forces are in a condition to sus tain a regular seige, and in a few days the entire circuit of walla will he found in a similar condition. Neither strong arms nor the devotion of the inhabitants will be want ing for this task. The national garde is to defend the ramparts, which it will have help to render unassailable. Forty thous and men taken from its ranks and added to the present garrison, will be more than I enough to make an active and vigorous de | fence against an enemy occupying an ex I tended front. i ne aeiense oi rans men win ne assumed, but there is a point not less essential; it is | the necessity of filling up the void in our army 1 with the help of marine troops. With regi-' ments still at our disposal in France and Al geria, with the fourth battalion of each of our hundred regiments, including the members w ho belong to the Garde Mobile, and with a portion of Gendarmes, we may easily put into the field 150,000 men. Beside this n call for the class of 1869 will give us 60.000 men who in a month will become real soldiers. But for the struggle we can also employ the entire j National and Mobile Gardes Companies of, France, and the Fieure, who are everywhere asking to be organized here. We have 400,-■ 000 men, and finally counting on the Garde | National Sendentuiro France can then arm | 2,000,000 defenders. Their anus are ready and u million still in reserve. A decree has been issued ordering the Garde National of! l’aris tu he detailed for the defenqg of the Capitol, amt the fortifications will be placed in a condition to resist an attack. A project of law will be presented to the Chambers in | corporating in the Nationall and Mobile Gardes citizens under 30 years of age who ! are not actually members. Mclz, Aug. 8. The Prussian advance has arrived at St. ! Avoid. London, Aug. 8. Forbach is among the strategetic points gained by the Prussians Saturday, and is now held by their forces. Napoleon telegraphs to Paris that the sol diers are full of courage, coolness and confi dence, hut the trial is a severe ono and will require great sacrifices and efforts of patriot ism to meet it. A Freucb ram is cruising off Dover. French troops are concentrating in great numbers at this point. Reinforcements from the east and detachments from Thionvilleantl other points are const intly arriving, forming a formidable camp. A battle between tlie two armies is expected to be fought here to-day. It is said that the Orleans Princes’ are prodigal of their money in relieving the wounded of the Frencli army. Ships still enter the F.lbe and Wesscr, notwithstanding the blocade. Ireland receives the news of the French defeat with profound sorrow. The Prussian forces menace Metz and St. Avoid. Marshal McMahon continues to re treat towards Nancy. There were illuminations and public re joicings last night in Hamburg. Dresden, Breslan and other cities. The French prisoners are everywhere kindiy treated. The .Journal effleinl says that the relations of France with the other powers is satisfac tory, and tlie late events have developed, rather than weakened this feeling. It is said privately that the Emperor is ill at (Jhalous, and that doctors have gone to attend him. The British Foreign Office has an impera tive demand from Prussia, that England sl all stop the shipment of coal or abandon tlie pie tense of neutrality. It is believed at Antwerp that the war will end in a week. A Brussel] despatch says the King's speech from the throne confirms the statement that France and Prussia have given a written pledge to observe the neutrality of Belgium. The condition of Paris is said to be dan gerous. The Empress is in council with Boulter and Seheider. The Globe says the Prussian envoy insists ! on criminal proceedings against British pilots J serving French war vessels, but Trinity House has refused the demand. The latest information from the seat of war, confirms every particular of the Pr»s- | sian victory. The Prussians to-day occupy St. Avoid, where McMahon's head-quarters were lo cated Saturday. Marshal McMahon's corps is in fulk re treat towards Nancy. It is thought in mili tary circles that he is endeavoring to form a junction with the French forces at Metz. Gen. Fressard is falling back lrom Soar river with McMahon toward Nancy. His corps in the late engagement suffered a heavy loss in both officers and men. Metz has been hurriedly placed in a state of defence, and every male person in the place has been pressed*into the service. Gen. Buffimere is in command of the forti fications at Metz, and it is believed that should McMahon effect a junction w ith the forces at present there, that the victorious march of the Prussian nrtny through France may be cheeked. In the event of McMahon being cut off from Metz, there is not the slightest doubt but that Gen. Buffimere will be compelled to evacuate Metz and fall back towards Paris. Napoleon lias left Metz, and to-day es tablished his head-quarters at Chalous, Sur tnane, about half way between Metz and Paris. The whole of the Prussian reserves com menced moving yesterday, and are rapidly coming up with the Prussian advance. The Prussian army is under the command of the Crown Prince Frederick William, and is advancing rapidly into the very heart of France, on a bee line for Paris. It is said that the Emperor Napoleon’s at tack is the return of his old disease, pro voked by equestrianism. Bismarck in his letter takes speciai pains to deny hav ing encouraged the plans of Gen. Turr or others against Austria. He says thntTurris not a person to be trusted with political confidence. French despatcl es to-day represent that active hostilities ure momentarily suspended, but a rumor prevails that the Prussian arms have concentrated, and a battle is raging be fore Metz. The Pall Mall Gazette says that the result of this battle means the triumph of the Prussians in the war. The German press generally consider the French loss irretrivable, but there are three French corps which have not yet been under fire. The movement of a retreat for the purpose of concentration lias been effected, and a new line 01 defence taken up in the passage of the Vosyes. A general battle in the front of Metz is considered probable to morrow. The Prussians are moving by forced march es in that direction. The defenses of Paris are officially reported as nearly ready to re sist the heaviest assault, and it is said that IdO.fiOO men are ready to fill up the ranks of the army in the field, and that the arming of all adults is contemplated; Special to the N. V. Tribune: London. Aug. d. News from Paris hourly grows more serious. None but official ac counts can come by telegraph. It is from letters and Paris journals that all intelligence must be gathered. The declaration of the state of the seige does not repress popular demonstration, and it is very doubtful whether the government has force to keep order or put down any considerable demonstrations. The republicans believe that their hour ap proaches. and Paris at this moment is as likely to rise against Napoleon as to arm i against Prussia. FROM NEW YORK. New York, Aug. 8. A Day of Rejoicing. This hns been a day of general rejoicing among German citizens, in consequence of the victories of Prussian arms, and many I business houses have suspended operations. I The Germans are full of enthusiasm and free ly predict the capture of Paris within the ; next few days. Steps will he taken at once 1 to orgai ize preparations for a mass meeting, and for a grand public rejoicing, which will ! be the greatest demonstration of the German \ population since the opening ot the war. The i German Consul's office has been thronged to 1 day. and volunteers for the army are very i numerous, though only those liable to mili tary duty are received. The French in this city are despondent and i crest-fallen at Napoleon’s reverses, and the i same spirit seems to pervade the Irish portion of the population. The Nathan Murder. The witnesses before the Coroner's Jury in the Nathan’nmrder case to-day were General Frank P. Blair, l)r. Walter H. Peckham, Washington McKensie, a carpenter,^ Urs. Janverin and Ruppaner, and James Neis. a newsboy. The testimony was important, but nothing not already' made public was devel oped except in the statement of the newsboy that while folding papers on Mr. Nathan’i doorsteps, three-quarters of an hour befors the alarm of murder was given, he saw a mar pick up a check from the steps and walk oh with it, the door of the house being partly open at the time, lie also stated that a crowi of ten or fifteen men rushed up to the lioust j , when (be alarm of murder was given. Tha one of the Nathan brothers picked up a do. ami showed it to the men, and that it was ful ly ten minutes after thnt before officer Man gam appeared. FROM PHILADELPHIA. Philadelphia, Pa , Aug. 8.
