TIio IlohcnzoJIcrn. Intrigue. A letter from a well known American in Berlin, on intimate terms with tho Govorn montCC tho North German Confederation. furnishes information that the proposition to place i'rinco iiononzoiieren on tho throne of Spain was purposely concealed by that Prince from King "William for homo time. When tho monarch was consulted, the project received prompt and unqualified disapprobation, the Kin arcuica that considering tho peculiar temperament of tho bpanish people, such a proceeding would prouauiy oo a second ALazimillian affair, reoulting in the loss of 'ho Prince's head. Tho writer further says the King held these views up to the time the French Government made the peremptory demand tnrougb iienedetti lor an explanation, Nothing but the tono and manner in which it was made, and'aiterwards followed up by rum lor guarantees, prevented farther ref erence to the subject by the King. Affairs in TIcxIco. Dispatches to tho State Department from Minister Nelson represent affairs in Mexico as in rather a quiet condition, with the country generally on tho road to improve ment. . There have been some political troubles recently in two of tho States, but they have been quieted. The Georgia, muddle. Attorney General Akorman has con sented to deliver an address before the A, Southern .Republican Association of this city, on the situation of American politics. Considerable interest is attached to it among the Republicans, as it is believed it wall allude to the last work of reconstruc tion, in the shape of the status of Georgia, and ho will take ground publicly, as ho has all along privately, that there should be an election in that State this falL Mr. Akcrman has addressed a letter to certain Republican Georgia members of tho Legislature and others who havo re quested his views on tho subject of an elec tion in that Stato. Ho declined to give a construction of tho act of Congress relating to Georgia, but on tho assumed ground that the question is for the decision of the Legislature, he is in favor of an election and against the extension of the torms of such officers. Ho holds that Uie Constitu tion of tho State has been operative since July, !8G8, and that tho members having sworn to support it aro bonnd by it ; that if tho government has been provision, fetill the constitution has been practically in force as the fundamental Stato law, and has not been set aside by tho paramount authority of the United States and there fore is valid ; that the constitution fixes tho terms of Representatives in this Legislature at two years, and the present mombors have no right to serve alter the expiration of that term ; that the under standing between them and the people at the time of their election was tint they should serve so long and no longer, and the people will be ovor-reached by an extension of the term. And in a party view he thinks tho Republican party will bo more hurt by preventing than by holding the election, but if it was other wise we could not sacrifice principle to success. Ho advisos every precaution against unfairness, and should tho election be unfair he would have it set aside. Tho Georgia Democrats are stopped from com plaining, if tho terms should bo extended, for in 18G8 they imposed on the people a legislative majority of men not unlawfully chosen. But the "Republicans should dis regard bad examples and do right Some of the papors of Georgia aro com forting themselves and their supporters with the assertion that the President is against an election this fall in that State, but it can bo affirmed in the most poaitivo terms that this is not his view. Tho matter was talked over when ho was hero last Fri day, and he expiessed a decided opinion that the law and public policy alike require an election in November for members of the Legislature as well us mombors of Con gress. In this opinion ho is sustained by most, if not all, tho members of his Cabi net. Neither the Presidont nor the At torney General ha3 given tho least encour agement to those who attomptcd to enlist them on the side of the party intriguing to defeat an election, and at least a majority of the Cabinet regard tho effort to ignore this election as a gross outrage. In fact, it cannot bo ascertained on careful inquiry that any momber dissents from the viows expressed by the President. It is not im probable that ho may give direct expres sion to his opinion whon he retnrns from St. Louis, and in any event it is believed tho question at issue must come before tho Attornoy General. Kcdiiciit;? tin: Army. Tho work of reducing tho number of army officers in accordance with tho pro visions of the army act is well begun. Tho names of some long absent from their commands hae been dropped from tho rolls. A good many havo already resigned oa ono year's pay, and more have indicated a purpose to do so. Assignments of su pernumeraries to vacancies and duty aro being made. The retired list is to bo in creased by ono hundred and twenty, and nliont that numler havo applied to bo re tired.

Iho re. quired reduction in rank and file will bo made in due soason, mostly by tho expira tion of tho term of service of enlisted men and non-commissioned officers.

Kelly, the housekeeper's son, in the Nathan inquest to-day, failed to furnish ground for sus- picion of his guilt. He admitted he en- listed in Lawence, under an assumed f name, in 18t4, and sinco his discharge from the army, in 18G5, had been with out any regular employment. In contra diction of previous testimony, it was I stated that he had a conversation with I two men, on Madison Square, the even- J inn before the murder. Other testimony ! offered to prove that the 003, with which the murder had been committed, had been seen about the Nathan premises over a year ago and since. Threo colored men were arrested on sm- picion of having in their possession tho lato Mr. Nathan's watch.

TiiEr arc doing a tremendous business in San Francisco with a chicken-hatching machine. It hatches 200 dozen eggs at "a sitting. ' Ihe Calitornians think it is something new. Not a bit of it We saw one in successful operation in this city ever so many years ago twenty-five years at least. It was cailed the "Eccale- obcon," and made quite a sensation at the time. The exhibitor had eggs in every stage ot incubation, and delivered a lec ture on the process twice a day. A ooui'LE of men m McLean county, III., recently fought a duel with three pronged pitchforks. After being both nearly run through the body several times one of the combatants sank upon the ground and died, and the other was carried off to be patched up into good health again, if possible. Wc suggest that hercatter all duels be fought with weapons like these. If it were rendered imperative we would very seldom hear of a duel. A gentleman who has learned from experience, furnishes the following origi nal recipe for keeping umbrellas : "Never buy a good one. Get a large, old-fash ioned blue cotton apparatus, break out one of the ribs, bend all of the others, break off half a foot or more of the handle, cut two or three holes in the cloth and patch them with gray, and then place the umbrella in the most conspicuous place possible, cither in the house or office. It will never leavesjts owner." The editor of the Now Orleans Picay une ate, the other day, with a silver spoon which once belonged to Gen. "Wash ington.

SERIES, NO. 009 THE FAM, RACES. The (.hirkasaw Joclcrj- ClubPre paratiuns for a Uranil Time. From tho Memphis Appeal, Aug. 10. M. Charles Stone, Secretary of the Chickasaw Jpckey Club, ha3 placed us under obligations for the f liotviuir, touching his arrangements f -r the fall meeting. lie says the staki.-, which closed on the 1st of the month, have all filled satisfactorily, giving promise of first- rate meeting in October. The post stake has seven subscribers : Cad wall a- der, Craig & Sod, Jennings", Lewis, Smith, Swigcrt and Young. This is the inaugural race of the mcetin"; two mile heats, sub. $50, p. p., the second to save Ms stake, with $000 added by the club. On tho same day wc have the Bradley stake tor two year olds, dash of one mile; sub. $15, .p. p., the club adding juu. in mis stake there are twenty-live nominations, embracing all the best and most fashionably bred two year olds in iventucsy and Tennessee. The third race, same day, 13 the Gayoso stake, mile neais, ior turee years old, $25 sub., p. p. with $400 added. In this there are eigl teen nominations, enibra'cimr such well known flyers as Enquirer, Regent, Jack Jicuonaiu, lung Bejazet, Same FarrelL Vidette. Bob Shelton ffull brother to Uelmbold,) Annette and Jim Hill's gray filly, by Brown Dick. This promises to 00 a great race. In tho Green stake, mile heats for three year olds that did not show in public prior to the closing ot the stake, there arc ntteen nominations. These, of course, are' all dark ones, but the list embraces names that belong to well-known running lammus, uuu lueru ia icmuu w UClievC hat this will be a first-rate race. In the George Elliott (sequel) stake, dash of one mile for two year olds, to be run on Fri day, there is a penalty of seven pounds extra weight imposed on the winner of the Bradley stake. To thi3 stake also there aro twenty- five subscribers. It will be a capital race. On Friday will also be run the Bluff City Stake, two mile heats for three vear olds, $50 sub., p. p., with $1,000 added, to which there are twenty-six subscribers. This is a very valuable stake, and prom ises to bo the great race of tho week. The value to tho winner will be $2,250. This stake closed in November last, and wc nave heretofore published a list of the nominations. Of the entries that have made a public record, Gen. Baford's En quirer, by Leamington, dam Lida, by Lexington, is perhaps held in the highest repute; and he will probably be the favor ite, lie is a game, stout colt, and has shown his ability to 'stay tho distance. He won tho Sequel two year old stake over the Chickasaw Course, last fall, beat ing a fine field, including the famous Hamburg. .His performances this year, in his three year old form, in the East, stamp him a first-clas3 race horse. Besides the stakes enumerated above. there is the usual variety of races, for Jockey Club purses, at various distances in ncats and dashes, from one to three miles. Taken altogether, the programme is a very excellent one, and we shall be greatly surprised if the five days' meeting, commencing on Thursday, October 25, does not prove tho most interesting ever witnessed m Memphis. As soon as sufficient time ha3 been al lowed for letters that may have been mis sent to reach their proper destinations, the Secretary will issue hi3 programme for the fall meeting of 1870, containing a full list of all the entries fo the various stakes, as well as the names of the sub scribers to the DcSoto (Produce) stake 1873, to which, we learn, there are thirty two subscribers. The programme will be published in the courso of the next fifteen days. TIIIUD I'AItTV. Many strange things happen in thi3 life which cannot be accounted for on any correct principle of icasoning. In the political world nothing seems more strange to us than the attempt to organize a third party in Tennessee. It passcth our understanding why it is that some of our contemporaries arc in favor of the organization of aparty whose ultimate aim is the same of the great national Democratic party the overthrow of the Radical party and the restoration of republican principles yet whose very organization tends to defeat every cher ished hope of its very authors. Are these third party men mad? While bound in chains they looked with hopeful hearts to the ultimate success of the Democratic party of the Northern States. They looked and longed for the time when they could lock shields with those who were so nobly strangling for noble principles. When Mr. Johnson stood as the great breakwater between them and the fury of their foes, their praises were long and loud, and they shouted their commen dations of Democracy which so heroi cally defended their chieftain and their interests. Mr. Johnson relumed to his home and met base ingratitude from those he had befriended most, although, not a jot had he changed since they cried " Great is our chieftain at 'Washington." Bursting the chains that bound us and again stepping forth in the capacity of freemen, as wc have a common cause with our friends who had long been bat tling for the success of our cherished principles, was it not our duty to ally ourselves with them, and in the most available manner strike for victory T Was this done ? A third party struck hands with Radicals to defeat their benefactor, because he was a Democrat, although holding no principlo that this party docs not defend. What next ? This party is now organizing for to wage battle against tho Democracy of Tennessee: And wherefore? Do they differ on any principle of public policy f Not at all. There is perfect accord on every principle. Wliy then the necessity of a Third Party, a counterpart of Democracy in everything save the namcf Being ior the same thing and striving for the samo end, why strive m such a manner as to bring weak ncss to our common cause? But wc arc told that the Democracy of to-day is the Democracy of 1SC0. How can this be unless the Third Party be also, for this party and Democracy are one in every principle of puolic policy 1 In the name ot reason men what means this Third Party ?tIt means demagoguery. For a man to be in full sympathy with every principle advocated by the present Democracy, and then charge that this De mocracy is the Democracy of 1860, for which he has no sympathy, is a very low order ot uemagoguery. The Democratic party of to-day is a living party, based on living principles. and is fighting living issues, and is the only party that can contend successfully against Radicalism, and consequently is the only hope of Democrats or Third Party men. Let the Third Party men remember that every blow they strike the Democ racy of Tennessee detracts from tho po tency of that creat arm by whose ncrcu- lean power wc expect the mighty dragon to be prostrated which has so long cursea the people. Let them remember that a Third Party organization will take no strength from our common foe, but will weaken and endanger me success 01 our common cause. Let them remember that we cannot conquer through local parties, and let them cease to war on the only party through which we can conquer. Let us iorget empty names, and re member the party that remembered ua while we were unable to help ourselves. and stand firm to it while it is striving for onr good aud tho triumph of true re publican principles.
