Important from Tennessee--Surrender of Nashville Demanded — the city to be shelled and burned in case of Refusal.

Chattanooga, Oct. 31.
--It is stated by several gentlemen, who left Murfreesboro' on the 29th, that Breckinridge had given Gen. Negley two days in which to remove the women and children from Nashville. At the expiration of this period, Nashville is to be surrendered or shelled and burned.

General John Morgan is said to be on the North and Forrest on the South of Nashville. Breckinridge is at Lavergne.

Morgan has about thirty pieces of artillery.

Breckinridge and Forrest have about sixty pieces of artillery.

Several ladies have left Nashville. The Yankees did not even inspect their baggage. Permits to leave were readily granted by the Abolition authorities.

[The above dispatch we give for what it is worth, the news from that section having been too unreliable heretofore for us to endorse it.]
