London, Aag. 31,3 *. u.—We have a universal rumor that McMahon is cross ing the Meuse Stcnay And pushing for Montcmedy. He has irix hundred gnus. A collision between him aud Fredrick Charles is expected. The Garde Mobile of the new requi- siiioil, one hnndred thousand strong, is hurrying to the defense of the capital. The presa of Paris admits the sparions- uets of Bazaine’s dispatches. Should the French Emperor cross the Belgian frontier, the Belgians will de mand his sword. Other severe orders have lwen issued for the purpose of guarantee ing Belgian neutrality. Harms, Aug. 31.—The telegraph lines uro still in inextricable oonfasion. Bates from the ^eat of war—particularly those from Beanmont, require verification. Pauls, Aug. 31.—La Iiberte g says Austria pledged herself to move on Prus sia, simultaneously with France, if sub sidized by Ollivier, the then Minister of France.

A mutiny oc curred among the Bavarian Landwhebr. A Vienna telegram denies that Bazaine was caged in Metz. Another battle reported at Attigney on the 13th no par ticulars or reports of the result London, Sept 1.—The Independence Beige, of Brussels yesterday, says, while McMahon was on the heights of Vaux, Tuesday advancing on Montmedy, ho was attacked by Iho Germans and forced back with dreadful carnage. This region of country is absolutely depopu lated. This corresponds with the Prus sian account of the action near Beaumont reported lost night London, Sept L noon.—No addition al details from McMahon’s defeat yet received. BocieToN, Belgium, Septl, 8 a. it.— Last night after dark, McMahon with drew towards Sedan, concentrating strong position.

The government, however, has good nows, McMahon’s march has been undis turbed. Palikao warns against publish ing important news pending military movement. Bazaine has won seven 1 small engagements. Boulton, (Belgium,) September i, 1*. m. —A fearful battle was fo'nght yester day and to-day. Yesterday morning, Mc Mahon commence 1 general movements to wards Moutemedy, and was attackednear Beanmont and driven, after a stubborn resisience towards the Belgian frontier. Tlie Prussians captured a large amount of camp-stores and drove the French from position to position, nntil night The battle was renewed early next morn ing and continued all day. Daring the night large French reinforcements came up, but failed to turn the scale of victo- The Prussians also were reinforced largely, and attacked the French in over whelming numbers. McMahon retreated to Sedan with the remnant of his forces. The slaughter is immense. It is impossi ble to estimate the loss. The Prince Imperial is said to be in Belgium. The population is flying in great terror. NIGIIT DISPATCHES. Paris, Sept.—Exportation of grain has Wen forbidden, imperatively, at Marseil les, A legion of 4,000 naturalized Ger mans have formed to join the army. Marseilles has sent Paris immense quantities of provisions. The diplomat ic corps have no idea of leaving Paris with the other members of the Govern ment, as the Empress remains, and neu tral powers must acknowledge tlie Iiegen- and Dorze. The Prussins entered Car- igauan at 10 o’clock yesterday. London, Sept, 1.—It is said that Mc Mahon disobeyed Napoleon’s order to detach 30,000 to protect the Prince Im penal. Tho seige of Strasbourg continues. Great slaughter is occasioned by the vigorous bomburdmeut A large body of French Mobiles passed the llhoin near Billenger, twenty miles below Basic, and cut the telegraphs and retired. The Prussians have taken precautions to guard against sneh enterprises hereaf ter. It is reported that three army corps have entered France from Baden. The war costs Prussia ten and a half million francs doily. Pakih, Sept. 1.- -The Corps Legislate are engaged in dennneiationa of Prus sian barbarities, and in laudation of the 1- reneh endurance at Strasbourg.

Thirty thousand Prussians were placed hone tic eombmL— celles, is important as maintaining prea- tige against numbers. Confidence is entirely restored. A siege is ridiculed. A dispatch, received today from a cor respondent of the New York Times, on the Prussian side, represents discourage ment on the increase. The cry, 44 on Paris” is becoming dsily fainter. Death from exposure and dis ease is xnAking fearful havoc in the 1 rns- sion ranks. The Monitoar declares, that the battle of ConroeH™ wot» deed ed victory tor Bazaine. - London, September 1.—Paris Is again accessible via Brussels. 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 ters continue to complain of the Pros sians tor firing on the houses. Tho in habitants clamor for death rather thou surrender. The besiegers employ prison 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 the lost prayer has been uttered, and then retire to the citadel and raze the city, rather than let in tho enemy. It is said that 200,000, Prussians have been killed and disabled since tho war n, September 1.—The Stan- ^■etaal, dated Florenville, Thursday morning, says: The French have just l>een badly bet- uenon the Sedan rood. ThoPrusians entered Carignau two miles Southwest of Florentine, Furious fighting nil day Wednesday between Armiguyand Dou- sey and Brussels. Reinforcements have been dispatched to tlie frontier to guard neutrality. London, September 1.—On Wedne* dayj the Grand Duke (Mecklenburg Schwera was at Yonscrs with his army. The Crown Prince of Saxony passed through Valny, near St Menrehold. with one hundred thousand men. General Van Falkcuster is already at BoksonviUe, on the railroad between For- bach and Tliioavillc. Paris officials and citizens of Lille have determined to defend the walls. The same spirit is manifested at Avesns, Cambria, Dontu, Dunkergne, Volleuoeu- nes and Gravelincs, where memories of 1792 ore reviving. Tho Moniteur demands that municipal officers abandoning their posts be pun ished. 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 reached the battle-field yesterday and doubtless, ore fighting now. VERY LATEST NEWS. ■A dark and threatening cloud, which is growing blacker and blacker, overhangs France.’’ The Times is overwhelmed at the pros pect of a calamity, which it ia, perhapv impossible to avert, and which nobody in France seems to forecast or f^u*. The Times apprehend-", mob violence against French Protestants, and a repeti tion of (he Reign of Terror. OmniAL CoNNimanoN. ow the News was Rkckved in Paris- Reign op Terror Anticipated. London, Sep 1 * 3.—Tho most intense excitement prevails throughout the city stock market, which is violently agitated. Official dispatches from Berlin, an nouncing Napoleon’s surrender, has been printed in extra editions of the London Journals. The PjUI Mall Gazette and Daily Globe have appeared with advanced issues. Both of these journals disbelieve that Paris will accept the capitulation of the Emperor and MacMalion ns the termina tion of the war, and declare that Palikao, tho French War Minister, must disclaim all complicity with Gen. Wimpfen’s sur render, and avow his readiness to follow where Paris leads, which, probably wtil be iu quite another direction than that of peace: otherwise Falikao’s life is no( worth an hour’s purchase.

Sedan Capitulates Brussels, Sept. 3.—The Etoile Belgm announces the Prince imperial in Bel gium, having left Mezieres and crossed the frontiers.
