Duniu.v, May 17. News has been
that King Cetewayo, haying advanced
to attack Oham and Usibopu, tho
latter chief combined their forces and
utterly routed Cotowayo. Tho first account
of the engagement put tho loss at
0,000 men, but tbia is probably exaggerated.
London, May 17. Mr. Pnrnoll is
ported to have expressed himself as satisfied
that the Government party wcro endeavoring
to produce & spirit of disorganization
in the New National League by
making false uso of tho Popo's letter forbidding
actlvo political agitation against
tho Government by tho Irish clergy. Mr.
Parnell says tbat tho Papal letter is more
advisory than mandatory, tho Catholic
Church not being a State Church. If such
a letter should be addressod by the Church
of England to tho clergy of tho Established
Church, it would unquestionably be
mandatory, but there boing no such a political
relation between tho Church of
Homo and the Irish people, tho utterance of
the Popo would be properly appreciated
and obeyed by tho Irish Catholic clergy,
without in any senso interfering with their
real political freedom of action.
DunuN, May 17. James Mttllctt, Edward
O'Brien, Edward McCaffrey, Daniel
Dolaney, William Moroncy and Thomas
Doyle, all of whom pleaded guilty to a
charge of conspiracy to murder, wore arraigned
for sentence this morning. Tho
first four mentioned woro ench' sentenced
to ten years penal servitude nnd Doyle to
five years penal servitude. Tho Crown decided

Dublin, May 17. The press of Iroland,
to-day, is unanimous in opposition to the
sentiments expressed in the circular from
tho Vatican. Tho Nation conoludcs a
strong leader on the subject as follows:
" If Home enters into an unholy alliance
with England against us, we shall stand
for tho rights and liberties of Ireland
against Rome and England combined."
The trial of Peter Doylo on a charge of
conspiracy to murdor was postponed on
account of sickness. He was in court this
morning, but was so weak ho had to be
supported in the dock by a warden.
St. PETFnsnuua, May 17. Reports have
been received of an extensive and disastrous
conflagration at Samara, the capital
of the province of that name, which lies
at the junction of the Samara and Volga
rivers, in Southeastern Russia.
Paius, May 17. M. Ferry, in reply to a
deputation of American and Ficnch gentlemen,
interested in American affairs,
headed by .Minister Morton, who presented
a request that France should take an interest
in the Boston exhibition, said that
ho would do nil in his power. He regretted,
howover, that so many exhibitions
in which Franco was interested would be
held at about the time fixed for that at
Boston, so that ho would probably be unable
to mako so successful a display as he
would liko to do.
M. E. Duclcrc, Senator, President of the
Council and Minister of Foreign Affairs, is
reported as boing seriously ill.
A dispatch telegraphed from London
says that tho English Ministry shares the
already reported viow of Lord Dufferin on
affairs in Egypt. The Government is informed
that Egypt has no longer any interest
in regaining the provinces of Duffeer
and Kordafan, now held by El Mohdi. If
tho Khedive is disposed to acquiesce in the
suggestion, England will endeavor to negotiate
a settlement of differences and
tho positions of Egypt and Mahdul to
each other in the Soudan.
Brussels, May 17. While King Leopold
II. wns riding with hia snito in tho suburbs
this afternoon, his horeo was accidentally

ercd Anioiit; the Navajo Indiana.
Washington, May 17. D. M. Riordan,
of tho Navajo Indian Agency, writes to
the Commissioner of Indian Affairs under
date of Kort Defiance, Arizona, May 6, that
he was recently informed that a boy hnd
been killed by a member of "Francisco
Captain's " band. An investigation followed,
and it wns ascertained that the boy
was a slave of the murderer. Tho agent
The owners of slaves have already held
that they had absolute power over them,
and thought as little of killing ono of them
as they woulu a dug. They beat and starved
them as the mood possessed, and, in short,
noted toward them ns slave drivers
ally do. Conse tiently they seemed unable
to comprehend why I took so much
in a dead slave, or why I should
bother my head about such a trifle. I
learned from Krnncisco Cnp'tain that the
entire family of the murdered boy and
five oilier persons, wcio held us slave; that
the original slaves were two Moqui girls
who were Ixiught for corn four generations
as;o; that all their descendants were considered
slaves, and eo treated, all of which
he considered a perfectly natural tiling to
Some time ago the father of the murdered
boy nscorted his right to befice. Tho
killing of the boy was 'thought to bo the
right thing to remind him of his dependent
condition. Knowing the tedious, expensive
and unce t in process of
a conviction under our laws, especially
in tho Territorial courts, the difficulty in
procuring witnesses, etc., I determined to
nt least, secure the liberation of all tho
slaves, and demanded that all
those now amongst the Indians, who are
held in bondage, Bhould be set free. They
said it would completely upset them, etc.
Ono villain wanted to know who will

Agent Riordan, according to tho report.,
insisted that all of the slaves should o
freed, and the Indians finally acccdod to
his demand. He estimates that thero aro
about 300 persons hold in slavery by this
tribe, some of whom nro war captives,
while others are tho results of trades or
purchases. Tho descendants of these, he
says, are always considered slaves. The
Indian Bureau has approved the stand
taken by Riordan, nnd will render him

Washington, May 17. Those who are
watching tho tide of emigration as it flows
to tho shores of this ono great country, predict
that it will rise higher this year than
ever before. The number of arrivals in
May will doubtless run over 100,000. In
April they were 82,000, and of that number
78,000 wero persons who hnd turned their
backs upon their homes and country to
seek new and better ones on this side the
globe. The United Kingdom furnished last
mouth n larger number of these thnn any
other, tho totnl from I'ngland, Ireland, and
Wales, being 20,01)0, and from Canada.
7,0'.1, against 25,170 lroin Germany. This
is quite a change as compared with the
relative arrivals during the past two or
thieo years. Since 1880, until now, Germany
has furnished a larger number of
immigrants thnn nuy other country.
Now the United Kingdom comes agnin to
tho front, taking first rank in this regard
as contributor to the population ol the
Suited Stntcs. In the months of April,
May and Juno of Inst year England, he-laud,
Scotlnnd, and Wnles sent loss
80,000 immigrants, while Germany sont
morn than 100,000. In tho preceding three
mouths the number of arrivals fiom Germany
was seventy-five per cent, in excess
of that from the bViiish Isles. In the calendar
year of 1881 the number from
Germany was over fifty per cent, greater
than the number from tho British Isles,
Now the situation is reversed, the number
from the United Kingdom excocding that
trom Germany. These figures aro at tho
service of those who desire to philosophize
upon the present state of a Hairs abroad.
A VncI"ii1 XJn patented Ie Ice.
Washington, May 17. Necessity is said
to have been a maternal relation to invention,
but nn exception to this rulo is
noted in tho fact that a gentleman residing
in Washington, whero tho sight ol
black smoke is a novelty, has invented a
system of smoke consuming which, for
its simplicity nnd effectiveness, scorns
likoly to meet with general favor. As it
is not patented I givo a description of it for
tho benefit of your city, whioh needs
it. Tho plan is simply to couvey tho exhaust
steam from tho cngino in all largo
establishments whero the engine is used,
to tho oLinlnoy, forolng it in the form of
spray diagonally upward and acioss the
chimney. This is accomplished by a perforated
pipo running round tho insido of
the ohimnoy, with the perforators so set as
to throw the spray upward to a common
center. This sheet of spray, with whioh
tho smoke constantly comos in oontaot, it is
said, causes tho carbon and other matter
arising from imporfoot combustion to fall
baok into the furnaco, where it is consumed,
only a colorloss gas finally escaping
from tho mouth of the ohimnoy. Tho
it is claimed, also aids in rogulatlng
the draught of tho furnaoo, andprovosja fuel
savor as woll as a smoke consumor. As
tho ostablishmontB whioh are provided with
team engines aro praotically ho smoke
produoers it would appear that this simple
plan may prove really valuable, both as a
smoko consumer and a fuel saver.
Thompson "Not Guilty."
Tho Jury Acquits Him on the Plea
of Emotional Insanity.
Great Excitement an Well an
with the Verdict.
Haiirodsbuxo, Kt., May 17. Wednesday
made an end of tho trial of Congressman'
Phil Thompson, jr. Commonwealth's Attorney
Shuok closed the argument for the,
prosecution and the caso, in a speech of an
hour's length, in which he argued to prove
that Jessie Buckner was not only the cause
of tho killing, but sho it was who concooted
tho entire scheme, in pursuance of her
avowed purpose of having revenge
upon them, and to get Walter Davis and his
wifo separated. Tho investigation and the
argument on both sides havo been very exhaustive,
and while almost every point was
gone over ropoatcdly, nothing of advantago
escaped the vigilant eyes of tho attorneys.
At 2:40 tho caso was given to the jury,
who, taking tho indictment and instructions,
retired to their room to agree upon a
a verdict. The court-room remained
crowded, and thero was much speculation
in-regard to tho verdict, though tho scale
was heaviest on tho sido of acquittal.
This has been a famous trial.' The awful
crimo alleged against tho deceased, his
swift punishment, the high standing of all
tho parties concorncd, and tho great array
of legal talent employed on both sides, will
all tond to make it ono of the most
cases on record. It is an old proverb
that a woman in a caso makes it a bad one,
but in this there are two women, whisky
and also Apolliuarls water, all conducing
to rendor it a terrible affair. Popular
opinion bore has swayed as tho trial has
progressed. Sober thinking men have
changed as tho evidenco was brought out.
So great has been tho interest manifested
that farmers, mechanics and business men
of nil clnsses havo loft their work to attend
tho trial, and gray heads that seldom
leave their fire-sides wore observable interspersed
through the immense throng that
waited the return of tho jury.
Ono hour passed sinco tho jury retired,
the audienco lingered, and overy sound of
footsteps coming from the direction of their
room, caused breathless silenco in the
room. Tho accused still looked confident
and conversed with his counsel and tho
friends that surrounded him. His brothers
and father looked anxiously toward
the door at every sound.
At last, when eighty minutes had
elapsed, the jury came. " Here they como I"
is whispered, and Phil Thompson's friends
crowd around him. Colonel Jacobs has
him pressed closely in his great, strong
right arm, whilo on the other side sits his
father, ashen palo with emotion and
Tho jury answer to their names,
and when the Judge asks, " Have tho jury
agreed upon a verdict?" Smith Mover
Street responds " We havo."
'What is your verdict?"
" We of the jury find Philip B. Thompson,
jr., not guilty as charged in tho indictment."
Then there went up such a shout as hns
not been heard in that old court-house
since the days before the war. Men rushed
forward to congra'tulato Thompson, and a
hundred stood waiting to shake his hand.
During the confusion tho voice of old Phil

TRACK OF THE CYCLONE.
Ntlll Come In the Iteportnof Its I'ear.
Connersvillk, Ind May 17. A correspondent
visited the path of the
cyclone which swept through
tho northern part of this county Monday
evening about 0 o'clock. A terrible hailstorm
prevailed for about fifteen miuutes,
after which the first signs of a cyclone
wero visible. As the storm subsided persons
who were in position to view saw tho
formation of a cyclone in the West. At
first it appeared liko small spirals of
smoke, two in number, which gradually
approached nnd blended. A funnel-shaped
cloud immediately formed and rose into
the heavens until joined with other clouds.
Tho body grew larger nnd larger, and appeared
to bo in great commotion. It passed
rapidly East, and its path was about
eight rods wide.
Houses were blown down, barns unroofed,
trees and fences wero blown down,
nnd in fact everything in its course was
demolished. It passed through tho small
town of Waterloo, nboutfour miles north of
here, completely demolishing tho little
village. The largo iron bridge nt this
placo, lately erected over Whitewater
rivor by the county at an expense of 40,-000,
was picked up from its foundation
nnd hurled to the bed of tho
river below. Also a large wooden
bridge over a smnll stieam was
picked up and carrlod away. Luckily in
our entire drive oer its courso not a man,
woman or child was killed or injured.
Stock also escaped.
Nashvillk, May 10. Particulars aro
just received of tho oyclono which wlpca
out tho mining town of Kmpiro, Ky., Monday
ovoning. A largo gonorul atoro, kept
by tho coal company, was swept away entirely,
not a plank or a stone boing loft.
Tho goods woro scattered in tho woods in
overy direction. Hardly a houso in tho
placo remains. Trees of tho largest sizsd
woro uprooted and carried aomo distance.
Sovon troes woro lodged across tho railroad
track. Tho'entiro tswn was swept away
in a twinkling, leaving only ono small
houso standing. Tho destruction was complete;
treos and foncos wcro lifted from
thoir places and carried sovoral huudrod
As soon aa tho storm abated tho
pcoplo bogan to orawl out from
tho wrook and ruins of their houses, and
a sceno of fearful desolation met thoir
startled gazo. All around them ware tho
dismantled houses and housohold goods
in torriblo confusion i bonoath hoavv tim
els rcio pinioned women and children,
solll dead, others dying. Two men and a
ioy weie killed outright, a woman and
child fatally injured, and a great many
people sevciely hurt, but not dangerously.
The destruction at Umpire is fearful and
complete; it was a plnce of about 400 inhabitants,
mostly colliers and their families.
The distress will be great.
