TUESDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 2. Scenes in a Court House.?A special to the Louisville Courier Journal from Danville, Ky., gives the followiug particulars of a tragedy which occurred at Harjrodsburg on last Thurs day eveoiog. The trial of a lawsuit, io which P. B. Thompson was the principal on one side aud Theodore Davie?, sr., oo the other, was in progress, aod each principal was attended dur ing the whole trial by his sons fully armed. At the conclusion of the testimony, while the lawyers were preparing their instructions pre paratory to commencing the argument, a son ot Thompson and a son of Davies moved to ward the door. They were followed by all the others, and io a moment the firing com menced, by which party is not known. Many shots were tired, and Theodore Davies and his son Lane were killed, aod Theodore Davies.jr., mortally wounded, and has since died. P. B. Thompson, sr., and his two sons were slightly wounded. Caldwell Davies escaped unhurt. Defaulting Railways.?The Commeicial and FinanciaJ Chronicle has prepared a detail ed list of all the railroad companies in the Uni ted States, fifty-four in number, now in default for non-payu.ent of interest on their bonds. The total of the boods so neglected counts up ^217,959,31 ], which is about thirteen per cent, of the whole amount of railroad bonds out standing in the country, viz: $1,700,000,000. This list does not inolude roads that have al ready been sold out under foreclosure and pass ed into new hands, nor those that have recently been embarrassed in their finances but whose interest not having since fallen due are uot in default.
