THE MEMPHIS SUNDAY APPEAL.
ESTABLISHED 1840. MEMPHIS, TENN., SIHSTDA.Y, SEPTEMBER 4, 1B70. VOL. SO.-NO. '266 The war news received yesterday is of the most disastrou- character, and it it doe not immediately result in a suspension of Hostilities, must certainly hasten that end. The sur render of McMahon's army has sealed Napoleon's late. The Emperor linked his fortunes to it from the first and staked all upon its efforts. He goes with it into captivity, never, as we believe, to sway the scepter of France again. H' has been regarded by all the powers of Europe as a standing menace to their ieace. H i.s great ef forts in behulrV the material welfaie of his countryroon were considered as much of crime as those ot his uncle to adjust to bis own notion the balance ol power by distributing the crowns of Europe to his brothers. England, Austria, Russia nor Prussia can forget the royal soldier who sloops on the banks of the Seine, and they will has ten to punish his fTtvatin- in the per son of his successor and ostracise the Bonaparte family from the "ring" of European Princes. Our sympathies go with the fallen states man who lor twenty years has con trolled and m an aped the affairs of France with an eye single to the wel fare of her people. We cannot forget his generous help of Tarkey iu her sick days; his help ol Italy when in the throes and Hgonies of a new birth, nor that he always worked in the in terest of a peace he never was the first to break. We sympathize, too, with his wile tbe true woman, who rising superior to adversity knows how to adniinistei, even to princes, the law of one of the fairest lands in Christendom. We sympathise, most, .however, with the French people, called upon as they have been to bear all the burdens of bloody war, just as they were reach ing the height oft he grandest success in manufactures and material prosper ity. We remember them as lovers of liberty, as leaders in civiliza tion, and amonp the braves.1 of the world; as sympathizers with the South when she confronted the hosts of her enemies, and we feel, at the surrender of McMahon, only less sor rowful than when Lee sealed the fate of the Confederacy by his en forced surrender at Appomatix Court House. But all is not lost for France. JShe has yet other armies in the field, and other and as alle generals as Mc Mahon. Those in Parts who are charged with the administration of her afikirs may yet wrest victory from the jaws of defeat. In any case, we hope the threat of the English press will 1 verified that under, no circum stances will Prussia lie permitted to possess herself of one foot ot French territory and that the combined voice of the civilized world will be lifted against any attempt to foist a Bourbon upon the throne so ably filled by the unfortunate Louis Na poleon Bonaparte. Prussia is great and can afford to be generous. PRUSSIA OR FRANCE. Letter fro aa 014 Meapkiaa He Chides tbe Radicals far their lecoree-m-.ni or Prussia. Fromibe Handsburo (Miss.)

The army, in such a case, ia necessarily demoralized, and unable to oppose the Germans or prevent their se curing a chosen position. Tbe beleaguered armv, with its numerous wounded at the garrison of the city and suburban refuges, must aggregate auo.OUO souls: fevers are iucreasTng, as necessary consequences, aad accompanied with want and suffer ing. Bazaine must hay counted ou tbe arrival of McMahon to relieve this misery ; this hsa been prevented by the Prussian movement. The first thought of the Prussians waa that McMahon was hasten ing to the defense of Paris; but it waa also beard that he might, by hugging to tbe Belgian frontier, march secretly back to Metz, where Bazaine was cooped up, and attack the Prus sians in the rear, with tbe co-operation of Bazaine; hence tbe advance of the Prussians in three great columns, sweep ing tbe extended line of tbe Belgian fron tier from along the Meuse to the Aube, oompletely shutting out McMahon from Metz. The suspicion on tbe part of the Prussians that McMahon had gone from Kbeims northward toward the Belgian border, seemed to be confirmed from tbe following circumstances: A Saxon cav alry regiment in tbe north overtook a regiment of Chasseur d'Afrique, Tbe Saxons immediate. v- gave them battle, and after a abort and sharp encounter de feated them. These chasseurs were then found to belong to General Failiy' corps, of McMabon a army. From this the proxi mity of McMahon' army was inferred. This new was dispatched prior to the Imperial surrender. The letter con cludes as follows: McMahon's late will be immediately decided. It will then be ascertained whether the Emperor la really witb him or not. The fate of Paris may be predicted.

Tbe Fourteenth division attacked a the French were preparing to leave on trains, and waa supported by the Fifteenth division and some portion of the second army, under General Ateinmelz A bloody victory waa achieved, and 3.000 prisoners captured Froiasard retired from Forbach to Metz. leaving his bag irsgs. private stores of champagne, pon toon train, camp kitchen, te. Meanwhile (tie First corps moved on Metz, waiting for the Second army, which bed to lay a railroad track aa they moved along. On the 14th of August, tbe First army was placed thus: The First corps, with the Second divison near Elivy, between Metz and Boulay, with another division rear Coqyailles, between Metz and Avoid. The Seventh corps, with the Fifteenth dt vlsion, at Losses, and the Fourteenth di vision near Donnauville. The Eighth corps and reserve near St Bar be, its First cavalry near Frnnurray. The advance post waa close to the French line, scarcely sGerman mile from Metz. while tbe main isody waa eneam; ed on the banks of the 1' iede. The enemy had occupied with consider ible force the small water courses be tween Columbey and Deuvuelly. Tbe movements of the enemy at about four o'efock led to a recoanotsance Energetic resistance waa encountered. Tha enemy devalnned great strength, snd General Manteuffel. of the flrst corps, and General Starstrow, of the seventh, engaged promptly Ga tz' brigade of the seventh corps in advance. The first di vision advanced toward Colombey, and waa soon Involved in a very violent com bat, but maintained itself till Astenr's brigade came np. fronting a force far out numbering it. General Starstrow arrived at 5 o'clock to the east or Colombey, tsk ing command in chief and advancing tbe whole corps at 6 o'cloek. All of -j lum ber's division was engaged near Colom bey, maintaining itaelt with difficulty against a sopertor force. At 7 o'clock Eoineck's division was concentrated at Maigilly. At that moment six batteries engaged, with others In reserve, to extricate and sustain Glover and Straa trow. At 5 o'clock Waynach's brigade waa aent to attack the enemy's right near Oilombe . and the brigade with splendid bravery .'iroye the enemy, enabling Os ten's brigade to occupy the woods north ot Colombey, the 27: a brigade remaining intact In reserve. At s '!cck the enemy withdrew at all points. In the meantime the 7th corps with the advance of the first, advanced under cover of the cavalry near to the roads connecting Avoid with Metz and Elivy with Met.. This corps opened the attack with tbe 1st division near Montboia and tbe 2J near Mezzierville. Tbe enemy ia force attempting to ad vance on the latter point was repulsed with loss by prompt service of corps of artillery rdo reserve infsntry. Darkness closed tbe fight. On tbe extreme left tbe First Division of Horse approached Mucylhant, the battery advancing within range of the houses with orders to fire; the 37th regiment of the 9th, belocging to tbe left wing of the second army, bad advanced on the east; on the same Hue, at the extreme right, the Third di vision of cavalry advanced to Ogg, where its battery opened on the enemy north of Seigny. At S o'clock the enemy retired at all points from the left bank of Mosel'e, under the guns of Metz. Pursuit was stopped by the lire from the irt- is as .

The result was, that tbe enemy In tie quarter waa driven from the nvt r bank to the fortress; In another quarter a heavy body waa left to r -treat on Paris, and fall into the hands of the Sec ond army, which was moving rapidly on the left bank of the Moselle, leav ing tbe First corps and Seooud division of cavalry on the east of Metz Tbe army on the ltith moved to the left without resistance, passing the Mosai.e at Avey and Barnay. On the 17tb the F'-st corps was beyond Ansue Moselle, tbe .lh and 9th corps at Gorge, while the 2nd army was marching rapidly toward lAetz on the Verdun road. Alter the victori ous fights at Vionville and Flantguy, the last of the first army this dsy was to act ss the r ght of all lines ot attack, holding the left bauk of the Moselle, while the sec ond army moved, so that the front would end trom the North toward Eaat, thus bringing in the flrst and seeoud armies between Metz and Paris On tbe 17th offensive mo ements were made by the Prussisns being In a sheltered position near Grav ellotte the Seventh corps contenting it self with repelling a slight reconnoisance near the forest of Vaux. At this mo ment General stein metz was reconnoiter mg at the south of Gravellotte, in the forest near Ogroith discovered tbe enemy -bree corps strong, encamped ou the the bights north of Gravellotte. Tbe farms of St. Huburt and Point Du sour were occupied about noon. General Steinmelz having been advised that the head of the Ninth corps was en gaged, gays orders to resume the attack. The Seventh corps deployed on the south and east of the nights at Gravellotte, and a formidable artillery practice followed presenting an imposing spectacle. Fifty cannon presently augmented to 90, opened on the enemy's battery, while ad vancing steadily along tbe high road was a mitraiileur, from whence a Are opened on the reconnoiteriug party. A strong out-post, well sustained, was placed. The enemy made no serious attack that day. On the fourth, the first army remained quiet, tbe enemy equally so, while the second army was advancing to Vionville, Aube Mause, Aux Cheves to renew the light up the hili. Steiumetz remained by the bat teries under a shower of projectiles, bnt hardly an hour bad passed before the French batteries grew silent, and the French began to retire. The infantry of the Seventh corps meantime rested in a woody gorge between Gravelotte and Point du Jour. Galt.'s brigade was posted near to guard the Moselle valley, and was actively engaged In combat. It took the village of Vaux and the nights of Fuasey, where it sustained Itself. In the mean time the Seventh and Eighth Corps, com ing from Resonville, opened the attack with heavy artillery practice, while the First division of cavalry took the flrst sheltered position behind it, and the infantry attacked tbe enemy in tbe woods of Gem vaux. Again the enemy' guns were silenced, while the in fan ry en countered an obstacle, resistance In the Gem vaux woods, where the fight con tinued for hours. Owing to the density of the woods, the hostile forces inter mixed, and the Germans snd French fre quently fired into their own ranks. At last, from tbe woods the Prussians carried tbe bights and the town of st. Hubert, with severe loss. A further advance is impossible. On this side the French artillery was withdrawn, and the Prussians became silent about 2 o'clock. Supposing the enemy had gone, Steinmetz ordered the cavalry to crose the defile with two bat teries and the Fourth Vhlands and pur sue. This was effected at 4 p. m. The pursuers found that the enemy had not retreated, but was sheltered from tbe cannonade by the troops which had ad vanced. Our men encountered a murder ous fire from chaasepots, cannon and mitrallleurs. The dead and wounded Immediately encumbered the road. The Prussian batteries soon re-opened, sheltering the cav alry. The duel continued until dark, when, leaving a fores on the field, the Prussian main body fell back. At four o'clock ia tbe morning the Prussian ar tillery reopened. The French replied until silenced at the left, between Vion ville and Arneau Vlliiers. The infantry fire alone waa talt at first, but soon the artillery began showing tbe approach of Prince "Frederick Charles. The German infantry held their position firmly, await ing the support of the artillery, and kept tbe enemy busy. The French all day used the Chaasepots from the trenches at two tbouaand aad two hundred yards, initiating dismay and severe losses, but they nevertheless wets in a desperate condition, and being surrounded and at tacked on all aides their only chance was to retreat to tbe fortress. Ia the evening they made one more effort to cut through our lines to Paris, tine after line of rifle men firing over each others shoulders, and shouting wildly, rushed from the bights to the ravine through tbe tress. The Prussian Infantry were thwarted and s saaenerl The moment was critical, bat Steinmetz providentially opened and burled back with slaughter the assailants. The Prussians then as sumed the offensive, reinforcements hay ing arrived, t.be King having approached and dispatched the Pomeranian Corps, that had never been under tire, to the front. It was said to be a decisive rushing forward and firing earrving tbe bights and winning tbe day. On the 19th the enemy took refuge la at, i what the raueaiAjm and trench bjs- LLSVX.

No official in formation received to-day from the armies oh the northeast. The battles for the past few days are generally considered unde cisive, though losses on both sides have been very great. Tbe majority ef the journals here look upon the at task on Paris as impossible, now that the Prus sians are not able to leave with McMahon and Bazaine and their immense forces in their reat. Paris, with the formidable preparation she has lately made, would require all the forces the Prussians could bring against her. The Pi nasi a no could hardly hope for even partial success with out exerting their utmost strength. It is well understood bow In Germany that Paris, instead of making pesos, will defend itself to tbe last extremity, which will account for the Prussian change ot plans. It is ascertained that an encampment of men, between the ages of twenty-five aad thirty, in a few days will give a new force of 3u0 .001 1 men to the national army. The ministry has instructed s commit tee of savans, who will act iu concert with the military authorities, for the pur pose of applying to the defense of Paris all the latest results made known in the chemical destructive agents. Tht) news that a French army corps en tered Baden and cut the railroads and telegraph recently is fully confirmed. All the cattle have been brought into the city from Bois de Boulogne snd other places, and capacious stables have been prepared expisnsly tor them. The ani mals will be better cared for in their new quarters, as the Bois de Boulogne was greatly overcrowded. The American legation has established an auxiliary bureau at the railway depot to furnish passports to the numerous Germans on the eve of departing for their homes.

Rumors of the disas trous close of the recent terrible fighting on the Belgian frontier are current. The people are gloomy and depressed. The last hopes of the Napoleon dynasty have failed aad faded away. Trochu dally grows stronger in the conadsnoe and sympathies of the people. Tbe Committee of Djfense are still working steadily for obstinate resistance, though the general opinion seems to be that Paris will not suffer a siege. Paris is determiued to make defense should the enemy invest it. Humors are current on the boulevards that a republic will be proclaimed, the present Committee of Defense to consti tute a Provisional Government. General Trochu is rumored as the probable Presi de ni of the republic.
