Special to Memphis Appeal Nashviixb, August 26. The following, from General John C. Brown, will appear in the city papers to-morrow: "To the people of Tennessee: "A number of the leading journals of Tennessee having announced me as their choice for iu'v.r it of the Estate at tie ensuing November election, I hope I will be pardoned for relieving my self, in this authoritative manner, from unjust impressions which have baen engendered against me in certain localities. On my return from a visit to East Tennessee, 1 sin surprised to learn that doubts exist whether 1 will submit my claims to the nominating Convention called by the Executive Committee of the Suite, and that doubts sre also entertaim d of my precise political affiliations. 1 am unwilling to achieve success on an equivocal platform, and 1 have therefore no hesitation in declaring my sentiments upon these questions, as I have already done on many pre vious occasions to the people.both in Esst snd West Tennessee. The political par ties as they formerly existed in the Southern Slates, perished with the late war, and their names ss well as their creeds belong now to history. Ttiere ars now bnt two national parties. The one, the Radical Republican I party latitudinarian in principle, wasteful and partial in its dis position of the public domain, reckless in it- expenditure of the people's money, partisan and prescriptive in ita legisla tion, and utterly regardless of the safeguards of the the Constitution. The other the National Democratic party, bailing for Constitutional righta, econo my in the administration of the Govern ment, the reduction of taxes, and the restoration of the Government to its an cient landmarks, and is compjsed of all men by whatever name heretofore known, who seek to wrest the country from the dominant power and save it from utter ruin. With one of these parties every man in Ten nessee, who would cast his vote and con tribute his influence in the direction of bis political faith, must unite. No mid dleground can be occupied, and neutrality at this juncture would, in my opinion, be criminal. Entertaining such sentiments, it ia scarcely necessary for me to add that I am in full accord with the National Democratic party, and stand in political faith where I djd in April, 1S08, when I had the honor, as Chairman of ;the committee to report the resolution to the State Con vention, then sitting at Nashville, and I shall earnestly labor in the ranks or else where, in the great battle which is being fought by that party for the principles of Constitutional liberty. The Convention which will soon assemble in Nashville, will be largely composed of the intelli gence of the State and its deliberations will doubtless be characterized by mod eration and patriotism. The Executive Committee have invited all the elements opposed to Radicalism to be represented, and I am confident that ita delibera tions will give harmony to our ranks and produce nnity both of purpose and action ; that while it will be irresistable, it will restore our State to tranquillity and repose. And while I unhesitatingly announce myself a Democrat, yet to this Convention of the people I submit my clsims, and, 1 doubt not. Its wisdom will find s wsy to harmo nize the action of all the true lovers of constitutional freedom; snd 1 will sb ile. Its action, believing as I do that, the basis of our organization and political faith must and will be antagonistic to the Radical despotism now in power. In my opinion the political sentiments enumer. sled in the piatform of principles adopted by the Ohio Democracy, to which pub lic attention in the State has been recentlp directed, are in tho main a plat form upon which we can aitd will unite. That platform, i might add, might proba bly be more specific in declaring that the -20 bonds should and must be paid in the lawful currency of the Inited Stales. This is both in accordance with the act of Congress authorizing thei issuance and iuat to an over-taxed people. There are questions ot State and Na tional policy that the limit of this com munication will not allow a reference to, but which, at the proper time, I will cheerfully discuss before the people.

Thiers' position savold pillaoei by pbuss1ans. Paris, August 26. The Oonttit-utio asset denies thai Germans have been expelled from France. At the beginning of the war thev were prevented from leaving. Subsequently, however, all restrictions were removed. Those who left did so of their own accord. They who pretend they were expelled by force falsify. The ContMutiomel wonder that Thiers should refuse to accept a place on the Com mittee of Defense. His great patriotism snd bis connection with the construction of the walla of Paris mad it natural to select him among the first for the posi tion. It is said that the Count Daru will ba appointed in bis place. The town of Savold, having failed, on account of total exhaustion, to fujfcish rations or money demanded by the Prus sians, was given to pillage for an hour, auu loo luuaoi tains lernoiy treaieu.

August 26 The latest news from Strasbourg is that six persons were killed, sixteen houses burned snd the cathedral slightly damaged. CONFIDENCE OF THE FRENCH PEOPLE. Paris, August 28. The La Public savs that important information was received lo-day by the Government concerning the position, number and movements of ihe enemy. A corps ot Prince frederick Charles' command and a portion of the King's army are undoubtedly marching on Tours, while General 8teinmetz is left to hold Bazaine. The eDemy may reach Paris within the next six days should there be no change in their plans. The Corps L,egisialif went into a Com mittee of the Whole last night, and held a secret session, daring which ample ex planations were marie dt the i rovernment in regard to the state of defenses of the Capital.

The subscription to the new French loan exceed one thousand million francs. The police Isst night made several hun dred arrests. Many houses were searched. The arrests were chieflly made in obscure lodging-houses and hotels. There were in all about two thousand persons ar rested. The iinion Rationale asks why Eng land, whom no one menaces, arms in such feverish haste. The Opinion wants to know the object of this activity. The Garde Mobile is to be merged into the regular army. All vagrants, suspected persons, and those who might compromise public safety, have been ordered to leave Paris. FIGHT NEAR MONTMEDY. Carlnrdhe, August 26. Heavy fight ing commenced last nighl at the town ot Spenaeu, ten miles from Moutmedy, in the direction of Boessiers.

"ON TO PARIS." Berlin, August 26. One corps of the first and second armies still confront Bazaine, while the remainder of the Prussians have marched ol to Paris. FRENCH STORIES CONTRADICTED. Berlin, August 26. The' French sto ries that the Prussians were checked yes terday between Chalons and Verdun are false. A CLOCD OVER PRUSSIA. Pbauub, August 2t One of our jour nals publishes the letter of a Berlin cor respondent, dated August 10, from n hich is extracted the following: We are persuaded here that efforts are being made to conceal the fact that the Prussian army lost seriously in the bat tles of the ldtb snd 16lh. The details fur nished here are not credited. It is openly asserted that the losses were so great that the army is disorganized, and not able to advance, which will allow the French time to gather immense strength, and cause the Germans to pay dearly for their first successes. Yesterday s demonstration was msde before the palace, where a crowd assem bled ami demanded to know the news. When the lueeu informed them in reply that it was no worse than what was al ready known, the crowd slowly dispersed unconvinced and dissatisfied. MOVEMENTS OF PRUSSIAN ARMY. Berlin, August 26. The Fourth army corps, under command ot ths Prince Roy si of Saxony, is being formed to co-operate with the Third army corps in a move ment on Paris. Accounts from Strasbourg represent that the Faubourg Nationals suffered se verely from the tireoi the besiegers. It is reported that Vederal is slight ly damaged, but this is doubtful. BOMBARDMENT OF STRASBOURG. Mindlehikm, Bavaria, August 26. Since last Tuesday evening the bom bardment of Mtrasbonrg by the Prussians has been incessant. Tue citadel is very badly damaged, the wall being terribly battered. Several magazines were ex ploded In the city and at the forts. Fires hsve also oroken out in different pieces The Prussian loss is triding. alas! the poor wounded frenchmen. Berlin, August 26. The effect of the refusal of the French to permit the wounded to pass over neutral territory will be that the French wounded in oar hospitals must wait until Germans are treated. ENGLAND. THE PARISIANS IN TERROR. LoNb 'V August 26. German Uhlans are objects ol prodigious terror at Paris. Their arrival there is momentarily ex pected. Patrols are stationed everywhere in the vicinity to announce the event. WHAT M'MAHON HAS DONE AND IS DOINO. London, August 26. The Tmen of this morning has the following resume of the situation : " King William, leaving a suf ficient force before Metz, where the siege works rise like exhalations, has joined the Crown Prince, who was pushing on for Paris. " The movements of Marshal McMahon begin now to be intelligible. A fugitive from Woertb and evading Metz, he passed through Vosges to Moselle, to Nancy, and to Chalons, where he was reinforced by the Garde Mobile and volunteers. His obvious aim has been to bar the passage and prevent the advance of the Crown Prince on Paris, affecting to disregard him. The Crown Prince moved on his flank past the camp at Chalons, offering McMahon battle, which the latter de clined, retreating on Rheims and leaving the Chalons camp all to the Prussians. Since that Rheims itself has been aban doned. It is obvious to notice that throughout a part of the French tactics has been to avoid a fight. The Prussians are now within a snort march of Paris, where perhaps some slight additional resistance may be met." LONDON PAPERS MISREPRESENT PUBLIC SENTIMENT. London, August 26. The Timet, JVews, and other London journals, are almost maudlin in their expressions ot sudden affection for Prussia, but they misrepre sent the average resolution of the English people. PRUSSIAN MOVEMENTS NOBLEMEN KILLED. London, August 26. A diBpatch from Berlin states that General Falckenstein ia reported moving with the greater part of his army to relieve King William and join the Crown Prince. The North-German Government has of fered Mr. Wash bur ne, through Mr. Ban croft, further supplies for the support ot indigent Germans expelled from Paris. Among the'killed by the unmasking of a battery of milrailieurs at Mars le Tour, were Counts Westorp and Wesdalens, Barons Klieat, Witzellun, and the Ger man Prince Reuse, snd other noblemen of high rank. Advices from Paris report eight depart ments in possession of the Prnssians, viz. : Toe Lower and Upper Rhine, Moselle, Neutsien, Mouse, Vosges, Marne, and Haute Marne. They contain 361,000 in habitants. Great suffering prevails in consequence of Prussian requisitions, BRITISH ACTIVITY. London, August 26. There is great ac tivity in the British armories and navy yards. It is rumored that the British ar tillery have been ordered from Plymouth to Antwerp. The Oowrrier de Boyonn say J. J. Weiss, who succeeded Prevost Parsdol In the chair of literature at Aix, and who founded the Journal de Paris, will be ap pointed Minister of France at Washing ton. THOROUGHLY ENGLISH VIEW OF THINGS. London, August 26. The Timet con tains a dispatch from Florence, stating that Prince Napoleon's demand for as sistance was declined by Italy. A special Pari dispatch say there are rumors of fighting, but nothing authen tic. McMahon will undoubtedly be In a battle to-day, and there are fears thst he will be defeated. Official circles are very silent, more so than at any former time. The Standard hss a special telegram from Vinton, Luxembourg, containing the following intelligence. 'A sharp en gagement occurred Thursday night at Mtenay, near Montmedy. The Prussians were successful. Many of the French wounded are now at Montmedy." I he success of the French loan has no doubt been exaggerated grossly. Paris Is still spatbetic. Bismarck from the first refused to psr ruit any representative of Austria to sc- iinpi n the army. The department of Marne, from Chalons to Vasssy, is under the control of the Prussisns. Belgium denies having permitted wounded Prussian soldiers sent sen as her territory. The Ao prints a Paris telegram to-day atalingtb tt Madame Pagaria was Imprii -oned at Vinrennos, charged with com munlcating w.ih the enemy. Other Com t ladies ars implicated. ReuUr, In a communication to the Lon don Tunes to day, dnounces delsy in Freni h t.degrsphic s rice news.

Nrw York, August 26. A special Lon don dispatch to the Tribune says that the arrival of the King at Bar Le Due is the best comment on the French stories as siduously spread in Paris that the Prus sians were caught in a tr ip at Metz. McMahon's movements are known to ths Prussisns, and they do not think them of enough consequence to delay an advance ot the Crown Prince. At present detachuiouts or Sinmetz's snd Prince Frederick Charles' forces ars marching to strengthen lie . !umn mov ing on Paris.

The French war office will privately assert nevertheless that McMahon and Baaaine are in lull communication and are pursuing then Prussians, wmcn anybody may believe who likes. PRESENT EUROPEAN COMPLICATIONS. New York, August 25. The IforW'j special says that an envoy, from Madrid has arrived in France to re -open negotia tions for offering the Spanish throne to Prince Thomas, ;of Genoa, son of the Duchess of Genoa, and brother-in-law of Prince Royal of Italy. .The Papal Gov ernment no longer opposes the plsn and Marquis Rapailo, the step-lather of the Prince, favors its resumption. The Prince is sixteen years old. Ths same correspondent telegraphs from London: " I have iww the key of tbe recent Wurtemburg mission to England. The Court and people of Wurtemburg are both dissatisfied, with tbe course of the Prussian Government." The contingent of Wurtemburg in the Crown Prince's army has been massed with that of Baden in one eorps and put under the command, not of any Wurtem burg officer, but of tbe Prussian General Yon Wurden, second in command to the Crown Prince as Governor of Stettin. This gives great offense in the field and at Stutgart, and more than that, the Bavarian corps are commanded by tbe Bavarian.Gsaerais Von L'nderzender and Von Sartmann. The King of Prussia has also announced his intention of bealowiug Alsace and Lorraine upon his son-in-law, ihe Grand Duke of Baden, whose dominions are contiguous to Wurtemburg. Against ail this, Wurtemburg chafes aad is pre paring to resist tho projects of ths Prua slan Crown. The mission of General Prole, of Rime, is entirely successful. The Italisu army is moving to the truatiurs and tusre are no symptoms now remaining of iroable, either in the Ponti fical states or in Italy. SEVBRE ARTILLERY BATTLE. Cablshkue, August 26. There was severe am;. ery battle at Kehl and Stras bourg on Wednesday night, las. ins until Thursday morning 5 o'clock. A large pari or ine cuauel ana arsenal in Stras bourg were destroyed. Many fires oc curred in thai city on account ot the vig orous bombardment. A French battery located ai Marvieu was captured without loss to the Prussians. Tue French lire has destroyed about twenty houses iu iveui. GAILLARDET HOPEFUL FOR FRANCS. New York, August 26. Gaillardet telegraphs as lollowa from Paris, 2ilh, to the t.burrter des L'ta'.s l itis: '! shall be brief; I cannot speak to you to-day about the movements of McMahon, on whom now repose all hopes of the coun try. 1 may tell you 1 participate in these hopes, and that I believe the van quished of Woenh will soon take bril liant revenge. A great haul ia imminent, uot because we desire it, but because act ing with rapidity is an indispensible condition oi success to tbe enemv. Moltke knows that Germany, with its system of recruitment, muat conquer rapidly, or be the victim of the cam paign. A fortnight's inaction on her part will give her no opportunity for forming two new armies aud reinforcing those now resisting the invasion. Tske my word for it that unless :. signal disaster oc curs, we shall noi listen to peace as long as a Prussian soldier remains on French soil. M. de La Tour D'Auvsrgne and the whole press have u najimously appro ved of this. The headquarters of King William are at Bar Le Due. Oue corps of the Prussian army, which took part in ihe battle ot Woerth, occupies the Department of the Aube. The marc!Tvof the enemy upon Paris continues, but with some hes'itation. " There have been stormy sittings in the Corps Legislatif, concerning the errors of the Committee of Defense. As it always happens, there has been a great deal of noise about nothing." K P AT STRATEGIC MOVEMENT ON FOOT. Nkw York, August 26. A special to the Times from Paris, 26:h, says: "I do not expect specific lnteliioence from this side for several days. There is a great strategetic movement in progress, the im portance of which is to be judged of by tbe reserve of generals and the authori ties here. All letters and communica tions for the army have been stoppedtand correspondents are imprisoned wherever found. I place no faith in the lying Prus sian organs in Lendon or journals court ing German patronage in New York. The military prospects of France are clearer and more certain than at any time since tbe beginning of the campaign." AN ACTION IMMINENT. New York, August 26. A special to the Sun ssys McMahon is trying to reach Bazaine by way of Mesierres, Montmedy and Thionville, but the Prussians have cut through Varreanns and Dun. There is fighting going on between Dun, Buza vey and Monzay. According to all prob abilities there will be an important action before long not far from Montmedy. TH FRENCH FIRM ON FLAM OP TRU' B. Wabhington, August 26. The follow ing telegram was received to-day by Baron Geralt, Minister of the North Ger man Union : "Berlin, August 26. The Incidents mentioned in my telegram of the 22d have recurred twice since. Captain Rochow, sent by General Alvenslabin to Toul with a flag of trues, haa been received with shots, and a trumpeter accompanying an other flag of truce haa been killed. You will lodge a protest with the United States Government against these repeated viola tions of the international law, and declare that we shall henceforth see the Impossi bility of sending flags of truce to a nation whose soldiers hsve lest in Africa, China and Mexico, all recollections of the usages of civilized warfare.
