The Prussians also were reinforced

The slaughter is immense. It is impossi

London, September 1.—Paris Is again

Paris, September 1.—The commander
at Strasbourg has announced to the
people his determination to bum the
city rather than surrender. The Prus
sians hare - refused the appeal lately
made by citizens to spare the dwelling
port of the city, on tho ground that it
would defer capitulation. The same ob
ject dictated tho refnsal to permit the
departure of the women and children.
Gen. Mattorungo, distinguished in the
Crimea and Italy, has been appointed
Commander of the Parisian National
Guard, in place of Gen. D§ Tramaun.
Paris, September 1.—^Strasbourg let

ers on the trenches at Strasbourg. Its
citizens and garrison are the theme of
praise everywhere. The Bishops have
urged the Commander to hold out till

retire to the citadel and raze the city,

La Libcrtc says the Government lias
received no official dispatches in conse
quence of interruption of the telegraph
line between Sedan and Mezieres, but it
is certain battles were fought ?n Tuesday
and Wednesday. The first was a sur
prise, which resulted in a partial panic in
the corps d’Arme of General Foilley, who
still commanded. There was also sepa
rate and detached conflicts, the troops
displaying great heroism, but there was
a want of unity during the engagement,
and the Prussians claim a victory.
In the battle yesterday, there is nt
question but that McMahon had great
success against the troops of both Prin
ces. Bazaine was not in in the engage
ment yesterday, bat it is known that he
continues tho work, to-day, energetically
liegun by MocMahou.
A corps passed through Paris and
