THE COAL REGIONS. Particulars rf the Outbreak Among the Scrnutou Lnbortri, The New York Herald has the following from Scran ton, dated yesterday: This city la In an Intense state of excitement. An outbreak anion the miners occurred last night, and the reign of terror predicted In my letter of jester day has commenced. As the mall closes In a short time I must tell the story as briefly as possible. For some time past a mine known as the Tripp Slope has been producing coal, a portion of which has been applied to supplying the wants of the citizens here, t.ut much the laigest quantity has been purchased for the customers of the Delaware, Lackawanna, and Western Railroad Company. Yesterday an organized band, consisting of Irish, eish, and English miners, bclongtng to the Work logmen's Benevolent Association, congregated about the slope with the avowed intention of pre venting the mine from being worked. When the seven or eight men left work a hostile demonstra tion was made upon them by the rioters, in which clubs and pistols were freely used. Several of the miners were severely beaten, aud one of the assail ants was shot In the hip. Last night or early this morning the rioters proceeded to a small opening on the road between Hyde Park and Provldeno entered the mine, tore up the track, blew up the cars, and did so much damage that the works were effectually slopped. This morning the exasperated miners, augmented in numbers and streneUiened bv the hdcrhihak or i yesterday, made another demonstration at the Tripp I alore, aud prevented the men who wished to worn f from entering the mine. Mayor Morris appered upon the spot, and endeavored to persuade the men pi to maintain order aud retire to their homes. lie was b nueny poweritsa in Ms ellorts, but n pun a promise t that the slope should not be worked the leadeiS 1 guaranteed that the men who had been employed la me woi-kb -nouia not oe molested. Kelylng upon this guarantee the men started for their homes, but hal got but a few steps from the "head house" of the slop beiore they were set upon by the crowd, and barely escaped with their lives, onn man ro,.oin.i s a scalp wound from a pistol, and was sived fio.n 1 death bv a miracle. The moo then proceeded to tho 3 mine of the Lackawauna Iron Company, on this sldi ii mo uici, im mwr an cal'iujii aemoDstration drove the men out, and closed work at that point At eleven o'clock Mayor Morris proceeded to tha scene of disturbance and read the riot act. Bat ha might have Saved his brea.h. Ttio nhinr.t nf tin. gathering having been accomollBhcd.the mobformedv iuio procession, ano, as 1 write, are parading the streets, preceded by the American (lag. Such are the events up to the hour of cloning the mall. The rioters have thim fai carried their pjluts, and the mining of coal in this quarter has been stopped. But the spirit of disorder is abroad, and there Is no predicting what shape it may next as sume. That this state of things has biten precipi tated by the avowed determination of the compa nies not to treat with the workmen except upon the terms laid down last November, there is not a doubt, aud It is evident that the dotngs of yes terday and to-day are but the beginning of most serlons trouble. The military of the State will be ordered to this place, and peace will have to be maintained at the point of tha b&ronnt. That: t.ha kutizens are greatly excited at the aspect of atfalrs ia imi, uaiuitu m suppose, ana tne stream or sym pathy which has been running in favor of the miners thus far Is beginning to turn the other way. The miners have grown desperate, and it Is feared that attacks will ultimately be mad lo relieve cravings of nature.

A letter from Stone Fort, Saline county, Illinois, furnishes the following particulars of a crime that rivals In atrocity the Uendish murders of Probst and Traupmann. The letter Is dated March 26: This mornlDg our little community was thrown into intense commotion by the intelligence that an entire family of the name of Dakins bad been mur dered last night at a point some three miles south east of this place. As soon as I heard the news I mounted my horse and visited the stsene of the tragedy, a small log hut of one room on the land of Mr. Jeiry Foley. It stands in the midst of a small clearing of, I should judge, an acre aud a half in extent, sur rounded on all sides by an almost unbroken forest. It lies about three huudred yards from the county road, from which It is reached by a bridle path. On reaching the hut I found about a dozen men of tne neighborhood, all terribly excited, and looking the horror each cne felt. Dismounting and hitching my hi rse, I entered the hut, aud hope that It may never be my fortune to look npon a similar spec tacle. On and diagonally across some old quilts and blankets, stretched upon a rude framework ia the corner of the right-hand as you eater the door, was the body of a woman apparently thirty-four or tbirty-Uve, with her throat cut and backed in a fear ful manner, the jugular veins, windpipes, arteries, everytning severed, and the head only held to the trunk by the vertebra). There was a deep Incision across tne palm of the right hand, as though a sharp knife had been suddenly drawn through the clenched list. Several deep and long cuts were npon her shoul ders and breasts, but nowhere could be discovered any stabs, showing that the murder was not com mitted with a sharp-pointed instrument. Near the lire-place, with her head partially In an old skillet, lay a falr-halred little girl of some ten or twelve years of age, with her tfcraat cut from ear to ear. In the corner furthest from the door, and on the same side of the room where the woman was lyiag on a pallet, evidently where the cmidren slept as nights, lay the bodies of tiro little boys, one acroas the other, aged respectively about seven and five, both with their throats cut. On the floor, ner and partially under the bed where the woman lay, was the body of another little girl, apparently not more than three years old, her head nearly severed from her bodj. Such was the horrible spectacle that greeted my sight on entering the hat. lhe floor, the wals, the few arloies of furnitjre, everything In and about me miserable aturtment! were deluged with blood. From indications, the woman's struggle for life mast have been protracted and furious, uuul she sucoutnid from loss of blood or a disabling stroke of the lustrutnent of slaughter BP ody tracks ou the door-slil, aud a trail of blond leading In a northeasterly direction from the house pointed out the course of the murderer's fllaht.' Pnrnuing parties started ou the trail, but did not proceed more than one hunnred yards bsfore they came upon the second sequel aud end of tuts terriole tragedy of the night. 'j he body of au Infant not more than a year old lay part'ally clasped by the left arm ol a inn, it having shared the fate of its motner, brothers, and sisters. The man, who was no other than Dktus wss also dead, with a ghastly wound across his throat. Bis blood-stained siiirt. pauts, aid a r-izor lying near the body, where it must have fallen from bis hand the moment aftr inflicting the fatal wound upon bis throat, proclaimed him to be the ifathor of the wholesale butchery of his family despatching his own guilty soul to the other world" twiltly after the shades of bis victims. As the man died aud lei t no sign, tue causes that led to the commission of the murders cau only be conjectured. The Daklos ha1 only been liviug dure about six months, having oome, I understand, from Jcileraou coun'y, and little or nothing is knowu by any one here of thsir former history. Stiltios wis about forty-two or lorty-tnree, aud in the hiblt of dr'nklug to excevs. The suspicion ia that the poor wrvtch. from long nursing of jealous fancies, and brooding over real and imaginary wrongs, and moved doubtless by whisky (as be was in luarn durhig th afternoon drluking pretty freely), In a moiue-ut of fVseIury committed the rash acts wnlcii ooUtvAed his fiiDrs latnUy and ld hlui 10 suicide.

The Nationals defended the position with mitraleuses, which bad been mounted on the barricade. There was a Perfect Rain of Shells from the Versailles batteries nntli half-past 4 In the afternoon, when It became apparent that a Direct Assault was Intended by the Government forces. This movement proved a feint, however, for, Instead of following It np the Versailles troops advanced npon both right and left flanks of the barricade. There was for an hour a rapid and effective fire or musketry and then the lighting Increasing In intensity, tho Communists Hastily Advanced two fresh battalions of Infantry, supported by eight guns. Crowds of Women and Children were In dangerous positions near the Arc de Trt omphe, watching with the utmost anxiety the changing scenes of the battle-field.

So New Attack baa been made by either yet, and there is a strong desire among the more substantial citizens to see Paris again Rcoccupled hy the Germans. The loss In the battles yesterday on both sides was quite large. As mentioned In previous despatches, The Conduct of the Government Troops at the Avenne de Neuilly was most heroic. They never faltered a moment during the rain of shell and heavy firing, and their loss was great, bnt Their Success was Complete. The Communists, since the battle, have com muted the wildest excesses, and butchered the pri soners they held.

A Woman In Detroit Votes the gtato Ticket First Instance of the Kind In the Last Half Century. From the Detroit AdverlUer, April 3. A steady rain to-day is aiding the general lack of interest that inevitably attends the spring elections in this city, in making the voting lu Detroit so very quiet as to be tremendously dull. A light vote Is beiBg cast here, and there are no crowds, no excitement, no fights, no food for items. Mrs. Nannette B. Gardner, whose success in securing the registering of her name week before laH was duly chroni cled at that time, has cast this morning the first vote for a State officer deposited in an Ame rican ballot-box by a woman for the last half century. Mrs. Gardner arrived at the polls of the First precinct of the Ninth ward at about 10 30 o'clock, in a carriage, and accompanied by her son, a lad of ten years, Mrs. Starring, and Mrs. Giles B. Stebbins. Barely a dozen by standers were present at the voting place, and the larger part of these were laboring men. No demonstrations whatever followed the appear ance of the ladies, the men remaining quiet and civil, and contenting themselves with comments sotto voce on the last political development, and with speculations as to how tbe newly enfran chised would vote. Mrs. Gardner presented herself at the polls with n vase of flowers and also a prepared ballot, which she had decorated with various appropriate de vices, in her hands. The Inspectors asked tho questions in regard to name and residence usually put to all applicants, and her name being found duly registered her ballot was received and deposited in the box without any further proceedings whatever. There was no argument, no challenging, no variation from the routine traversed by each masculine exerciser of the elective franchise. Mrs. Gardner voted, as we understand, for the Republican candidates generally, with one Democrat and one lady. After the vote was deposited she pre sented the . vase of flowers to the inspectors, and also handed them a large picture, representing an immense crowd of women in darkness just entering the portals of an arch Inscribed "Liberty" and upon which aa eagle was perched. Tbe gates were held open by Columbia and the Goddess of Justice. ' The foremost woman held in her hands a scroll In scribed "The Fourteenth Amendment." To the right were imps of darkness fleeing away, some with barrels of whisky. On the left was pic tured the Capitol at Washington, with men , crowding its steps, cheering, etc. Streams of light flowed npon them, while, with the excep tion of this and the foreground, the picture was darkness intensified. The following lines appeared underneath; We come, free America, five millions strong, In darkness and bondage for many years long We've marched in deep silence, but now we nnroll The fourteenth amendment, which gives as a soul. Glory, glory, hallelujah ! glory, etc., As we go marching on." Columbia "Welcome, beloved daughters; Take your places beside my sons." After the vote had reached Its resting-place, there was a faint attempt at a hurrah among some of those present, but this was frowned . down by tbe others as tending to Interfere with tbe solemnity of the occasion. The ladies then left tbe voting-place, and matters resumed their usual appearance thereabouts. inaAL iNTBLLianNcn. The Coal Troubles. Supreme Court. In this Court the Attorney-General to-day filed Information against the Lehigh Valley and Phlladel. phia and Heading Bailroad Companies, npon whtcb writs of quo warranto were Issued returnable at Ilar risburg the first Monday In May.

Bunn, who was charged with embezzlement of public funds and conspiracy to cheat and defraud, Judge Allison this morning decided that the first charge could not be sustained because there was no evidence to show that the money In question was entrusted to him. Upon the second charge, however, there was nothing to do but remand him for trial, because the evidence was to the eilect that he planned with other prrtlea to obtain from the city something over fuoo, when he was entitled to receive only a sum of $100. But bis Honor thought the prosecutor, Hartnaok. was. from bis own statement, as gallty as Bunn could be, and he would also remand him for trial were it not that the statute of limitations prevented. Land is Again. Simon M. Landls had a hearing before Judge Peirce upon the charge of selling a wicked book. It is the same book that caused his conviction and sentence before. His counsel, Damon Y.
