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.
