This dirft injfuifihed citizen of Kooxville is on a visit to West Tennessee. He is at the Pea bo ly hotel in thU cily, and was yesterday vis iiei by many of our leading citizens. Colonel Caldwell is understood to be an aspirant for .ffovernor. He is not generally known in West Tennessee, but he seems to have made a favorable impression during his present visit. . Julin? frrm the indications in East Tennesfc-c. L'o'onel Caldwell is very strong in that section of the State, a centleman who has the confidence and respect of his neigh bors to an eminent degree. Colonel Caldwell is recognized as one of the most talented cit izens of E ist Tennessee. As a lawyer, he is at the head jf his profession, and would no daubt make a most efficient and popular trovernor of the State. If nominated as the Lfruocrr.t:c standard-bearer for governor of Tennsiee, Colonel Cooper would no doubt carry our banuer once more to a glorious tri umph, and Bhould another bo the choice of the convention he will prove as true in defeat he would bj hateful in victory. He has done etficiont service in th- Democratic party in every campaign since tlio war, and is no doubt deserving ot the honors he seeks at the liund of the party he has so long and faith fully served.

(Mac) Williams, wbo had just Iwen sentenced to two years imprisonment in the penitentiary by Judge Logwood, on the cuarge ot mail ciously shooting a coiored man named Wash Easoo. Sometime ago a feu originated be tween a number of colored persons and Mac Williams and his friends, in one of the civil districts a few miles nortn of this city, i wo neirroes were killed and a few wounded ere order was restored,. and Mac Williams, the alleged originator of the trouble, arrested. When first arrested he was taken belore :i magistrate, but for want of proof the accused was discharged troru custody, ihrougn ine V! Lei lance of Sheriff Anderson and his effi cient deputies sufficient evidence was secured to cause the indictment of Mac Williams, who was accordingly arrested on a capias. THE INDICTMENTS AIAIN8T THE PRISONER. He was indicted for murder in the first de gree, and was out on bail. A second indict ment was found against him for malicious shooting, but aa he had given bond in the first case, on the latter he was permitted to go at large without bail. He has been coming ud for trial for three Saturdays past, but last week he was tried.and convicted before a jury of malicious shooting. Last Saturday his coun sel, Judge Adams, argued a motion in court for a new trial. Yesterday Judge Logwood delivered his opinion in the case, refused the motion, and sentenced Mac Williams to im prisonment in the penitentiary for two years. Soon after the sentence was passed, a man approached Mac Williams and whispered in his ear. It is now believed that he either slipped him a pistol or informed him where pistols could be found as soon as he had made his escape. Ui j counsel, Judge Adams, had made a motion to bx Williams s bail, which wt.sdone. at two thousand dollars, and Judge Adams announced that the bondsmen were ready to go on the bond. in R SUDDEN ESCAPE. DeDutv-Shenff Dn yfus bad the prisoner in charge, and he observed MacWiliiams get up and attempt to leave the court-room, lie at once stopped him, and MacWiliiams apol ogized and returned to bis seat. In a few minutes Judgo Logwood called Depnty Sheriff Dreyfus, and while that officer was talking to the court at the bench MacWil- liatna urnan snddonlv and stepped Out of the court-room through the hall-way, and into Mam street bv the main entrance, liis fcis- appearance was noticed immediately, and a hue and cry was set up. The escaping pris oner waa seen to run down Poplar street to Second alley, and tken turn up the alley northward. IN HOT PURSUIT. Deputy-Sheriffs Broadus.M'Mahon, Cannon and Powell at once secured horses and started in search of the fugitive. M'Mahon and Cannon went together, while Powell and Broadus went in different directions, bnt they all met near Olympic park, some three miles out on the Louisville railroad, under the fol lowing circumstances: THE PISTOL FIGHTS. Deputy-Sheriff John Powell was the first to come up with MacWiliiams, who was con cealed in a thicket near Olympic park. He was ordered to surrender, which summons he ncswer. d by opening fire with h s pistol. The officer replied in like manner, and a reg ular duel took place, half a dozen shots being interchanged. Deputy-Sheriff Broadus, hearing the firing, closed in aud discovered Mac Williams retreating and climbing over a fence into the road. As he did so, Broadus presented his pistol and demanded a surrender, saying: "MacWiliiams, I don't want to kill you, but you must surrender." MacWiliiams replied that be had done noth ing and would not surrender. He had his pistol in his band all the time, fie got over the other fence into a field, followed by Broadus, who discovered Deputy -Sheriff MacMahon riding up on the other side, be hind the escaping desperado. Officer Mac Mahon and MacWiliiams had been friends and were well-known to each other, so Mac Mahon rode up and asked him to surrender. He replied by leveling his pistol and firing. MacMahon saved his life by throwing himself on the side of his horse, and he at once dismounted, and then a pistol duel took place between him and the des perado. Deputy-Sheriff's Powell and Can non, on horseback, and Deputy-Sheriff Broadus, on foot, closed in. MacWiliiams now fired at Deputy-Sheriff Broadus, who also returned the tire several times. THE CAPTURE. Deputy-Sheriff Cannon approached close to MacWiliiams and presented a pistol to his breast, while Deputy-bhenfi Lowell slipped up behind him, grabbed his pistol and dis aruid him. It was discovered that Mac- Williams was wounded one time, the ball entering his side in front above the hip and passing out back of the hip, initiating a painful but not serious flesh wound, as was afterward discovered by Dr. Thornton, wbo made the medical exami nation. MacWiliiams had somehow secured two pistols, one large army-size, and the other of smaller caliber. He had fired eight shots at the officers, and had been fired at probably a dozen times. He was placed in a wagon and was brought back to the court- bouse, and from thenc was conveyed to the county jail, where he is at present confined. 1 he sheritt s othcers deserve great credit tor their deterniimrtion, and especially for their humane efforts to capture the prisoner with out injuring him.

A correspondent at Rome telegraphs that he fears the Jesuit and violent party has definitely triumphed at the Vatican.

A Conflict of Authority In High Places How Minister Foster Seduced the Mexican Government Into Sub mitting to Recognltiou by the Co I ted States (overnment. City op Mexico. May 11. A feeling of anxiety exists in political circles. Vallerte, minister of foreign relations; Tagle, minis ter of justice, and Garcia Curdena, minister of the interior, were elected judges of the national supreme court. President Diaz ap pointed them members of his cabinet, li cense being granted them to abstain from court duties. A question of jurisdiction re sulted therefrom between the executive and the supreme court, the court withdrawing the license, and requesting them to resign one position or the other. Tagle and Cardena resigned the supreme court judgeships, but Vallerte is embarrassed, being reluctant to relinquish e ther position of premier or chief- justiceship. He is, besides, the most promi nent candidate tor tne next presidency. His enemies are exulting overh;s trying position. It is probable the court will extend a further license to Vallerte, it being considered im politic that he should leave the State depart ment before the settlement of the American question.

Shots Fired at Him Arrest of the Assassin and Several of his Accomplices. Berlin, May 11. At half-oast three this afternoon, aa Emperor William was return ing from a drive with the Grand Duchess of mden, several shots from a revolver were fired at him in the avenue Den Linden. No body was hurt. The person who fired the shots was arrested. An accomplice, who at tempted to rescue the assassin, was also arrested. The city is greatly excited in conseauence of the attempt upon the life of the emperor. ureal crowds assembled in tront 01 the pal ace, to w horn the emperor several times pre sented himself in acknowledgment of their expressions of sympathy. The members of the ministry, foreign ambassadors and offi cers of the army hastened to the palace, ten dering their congratulations upon the em peror's escape. The would-be assassins are in the hands of the police, who decline to furnish any information, and the character of the perpetiators and the motive of their crime are unknown. MIDNIGHT. Two shots were fired into the emperor's carrriage from the sidewalk without effect, and the assassin ran into Middle avenue, fol lowed by a crowd. On an attempt being made to capture him he fired three more shots and threw his revolver away. He was then secured. The emperor's carriage was stopped, and the footman sprang from the box and assisted at the capture. Another man who, it is alleged, attempted to rescue the one who fired the shots, was ar rested a few moments afterward in Middle avenue. The man who attempted to assassinate the emperor is a tin smith named Heinrich Maxhaedel, said to be from Leipsic. He was taken to the nearest police station, where a preliminary investiga tion waa instituted. The accomplice arrested is named Keugers, a laborer belonging to Berlin. There were increasing demonstra tions before the palace throughout the even ing, dense masses were streaming in from the remotest suburbs to manifest their loyal ty and sympathy, singing the national an them. The emperor went to the opera at the Royal theater to night, and received a great ovation. A3IKH1CAX COn31UKl83I Attracting Considerable Attention In London, to the Kxtent that the Times Kinds Occasion to Ventilate Its Views. London, May 11. Dispatches from America reporting apprehensions of a com munistic outbreak are attracting attention. The general opinion is that it will be the worse for the communists. The Times, on the subject, concludes as follows: "If, as we will not anticipate, the United States is des t ned to go through social evils of this kind, we shall doubtless hear again, as we used to hear fifteen years ago, a good deal about the evil effects of democrat'c institutions. If, however, it is the weakness of institutions like those of America, to give tolerant encourage ment to all sorts of experiments in social and political organization, it is their strength to be able to survive them, to profit by their success and to be little worse for their failure. The fabric of American so ciety is so fetrong that it can sustain with little or no injury shocks which would be fatal to weaker and more effete constitu tions. In the United Statea the freedom cf dihcussion is the safety-valve through which a great deal of superfluous political steam es capes. Americans have political sagacity enough to distinguish sharply between intemperate or evil revolutionary speech and rebellious action. They have unbounded toleration for the one, but have never shown any great patience for the other. We do not doubt that if they have to deal with any dan gerous form of communism, they will deal with it effectively. The social fabric of the United Jstates is as capable of successfully re si.ting such an attack as that of any State in the world. Exciting Scenes In the Canadian Par liament. Ottawa, May 11. There was a most ex traordinary scene in the house of commons yesterday, Sir John M 'Donald, Dr. Tupper, and Hon. Donald Smith participating. The trouble grew out of remarks Jy Sir John the night previous, respecting Smith's connec tion with the Pembina branch railroad bill. The most violent language was used and abusive epithets applied on each side, and the scene was only terminated upon the com mons being summoned to the bar of the sen ate for prorogation.

The steamer Sardin ian, on which the explosion happened yester day afternoon at the entrance to Lough Foyle, on her passage from Liverpool to Quebec, was at anchor at the time. The explosion took place in the coal-bunkers, and the ship took fire immediately. The ereatest confu sion and consternation ensued, and when or der waa restored the compartments were searched for the dead and wounded. Some of the latter had their arms and letrs broken. and a few were burned about the head and face. It is believed that when the extent of the disaster is ascertained the figures given in the dispatches last night of the injured and killed will be considerably increased. Three tugs were sent for the passengers and with medical aid for the wounded, who were temporarily placed in a warehouse on the quays. Subsequently they were taken to the Derry infirmary, and three of them last night were pronounced hope less, lwo of the bodies recovered were identified as those of members of the crew. Some of the passengers are reported miss ing, but this may be owing to the existing confusion and to the fact that a ma jority of the passengers do not speak English. Among the passengers are forty orphan chil dren, destined to domestic service in Ameri ca. Ihe fare bngade of Derry went to the vessel in a special steamer.but their efforts to extinguish the fire were unavailing. An at tempt to beach the bardinian tailing, sbejwas scuttled and sunk. All the saloon passengers are safe. Four persons, steerage passengers and members of the crew, are missing. THE STEAMER'S VALUE NO INSUHACKE. New York, May 12.
