How tin' Dcfcndnnt AetH niul I.ui.Jm Wlcnt Koine Witnesses Jluve to Say. LouisviLLK, Kv May 9. The Commercial's special from Ilurrodsburg, Ky., says: "Phil. B. Thompson was arraigned yesterday morning in the Circuit Court for tho killing of Walter H. Davis. Tho littlo court-room in the dingy old was crowded with nn audience of whito men, a few negroes, and a dozen or so colored women. There was no demonstration, no excitement, no emotion. Tho court-room was n characteristic featuro of county court-rooms. Judge ('. A, Hardin sat upon the bench and ptesided with becoming dignity. For tho dofenso Jo. Blackburn, Dan. Lindsay, Tom Bell, James Wilson, and almost every other practicing lawyer at tho local bar, including Sam. Young and appeared. Tho lntherof the defendant, Phil Thompson, sr., ho is in n great for the liberty of that distinguished maniac. Thomas IS u foul was in the court-room with his sou nud his son's friends. He is not taking an active part in tho defense, but will lend ndvico when he esteems, it necessary, and much deep thinking. Tho prisoner sat calmly within the bar, nud chatted pleasantly with his attorney and friend, Br. Blackburn. Theio was a smile upon his face, nud his blue eyes were laughing. This was for a moment. nn cxpie.ssion of ineffable sadness passed over his countenance. Then he chewed tho head of his cane, ami seemed delightfully indillcrcnt. A moment later he was drawing away at a cigar that wns lighted. Then he smiled "agnin, exhibiting tho whitest, prettiest set of teeth in the Uucc more he turned and chatted with Blackburn. This wns tho manner of Phil Thompson. the coolness that is his heritage from a lineage of biae men, the younger Thompson was unensy. He was anxious. It is iin'iinit that he should have boon ns he wns fur murder in the first degree, ns tho indictment roads.

This was a picture of the dcloiidiiiu in ne al at the liar of justice. It wu.s tuthcr unpleasant to turn away fioin n study of his face and listen to the dull story of tho pioeeodiugs. At 9.30 o clock the court culled the case of the Common wealth against Phil It, ThoinpMju. jr.t " ft is tho last case upon tho criminal' docket," remarked Judge Hardin painfully. Mr. Jacob, of tlio counsel for the defense, promptly arose. "May it please your Honor," ho remarked slowly, "some of the attorneys for tho defense nro absent, and will not arrive until this afternoon. If the Commonwealth does not insist upon an immediate trial we would like a postpononicnt of the caso until 1:30 oolock. We desire this shoit delay in order that our associates may hocoiuo familiar with every step to bo taken in tho caso." The Commonwealth mado no objection, tho Judge granted tho motion and the court adjoin tied accordingly. During tho delay thus occasioned two men, who aro to figure moro or less in tho trial, weio sought out. They nro Madisou W. Curry, an elder in tho Presbyterian Church, nud Morris T. Threlkeld, a deacon in tho Baptist Church. The former is a dealer in haidware, tho latter a farmer and trader, and both aro men of eminent respectability. Throlkold is n witness in tho caso for tho prosecution. Curry hots not been summoned for cither side. It is understood that tho Commonwealth will attempt to show that these two gentlemen know a great deal about Miss behind the scenes, and that Threlkeld was with her in Cincinnati on the very night thatJDavis is charged to have seduced tho wlfo of Phil. Thompson. What this story will amount to nobody can say, but in justico to the two gentlemen, each is given the benefit of tho statement. Mr. Curry was found at his place of business on Main street. Ho is a mild-mannered, clover gentleman of middle ago. He said, in answer to a question which was straight from the shoulder: " I do deny, now and forever, that there is tho slightest truth in this scandal which has been circulated about me. I know Miss Buckncr and that is all. It has pleased mo occasionally to go and hear her talk ond sing, but, as God is my judge, I know hor only in tho politest sonso of boclal formality. On that night in Cincinnati, when Davis is charged to havo been intimate with Mrs. Thompson, I was hero in Harrodsburg. I know positively nothing of tho caso." That was what Mr. Curry said,- and a few moments later Mr. Throlkold was seen, and, after eying tho correspondent suspiciously, announced that all ho had to say would be said upon tho witness stand. Wcro you not with Miss Buckner in Cincinnati on tho night of tho 28th of " No, sir; I did not sco Miss Buoknor at all whilo I was in Cincinnati. I did not lUfiJUEk to soojjorj. On. thojijght you men- tion I'wns at the theater with" my friend, Hates Wilson." This wns all Mr. Throlkeld had to say about the matter, except to udd that tho entiro story about himself and Miss and Walter Davis was infamously false. The selection of a jury proceeds slowly. Five jurymen so far have been accepted, four peremptory challenges having been made by tho prosecution, while only two have been mado by tho defonso. This indicates the popularity and inlluencc of tho accused. CLOSING THE SALOONS. They Will Kill Him IT H Enforces tlio Sunday NlgM Ordinance. Milwaukkk, Wis., May 9. Mayor who has just issuod orders to closo tho saloons nt midnight, and that policemen shall not drink liquor while on duty, to-day received n thicatcniiig letter, in which it was declared that the saloon-keepers had decided to kill him if ho enforced tho orders.

The Tight Lasted nn Hour, mill tue Indians Made u Jlcspcratc Tomiisto.nk, A. T., May 9. Tho recent news of, an Indian fight in tho Sierra has been confirmed by a letter from tho headquarters of tho army in Northern Mexico, at Aposura Sonora. The engagement occuned at Sierra Tnlmosa, near tho Chihuahua lino, on the 25th of April. Colonel Garcia left tho headquarters with one company of tho 0th Regiment, Captain Dcvesa, numboring eighty-six men and tilty State troops, under Captain to tako up and follow tho trail of the Indians on their lato raid into Senora. After five days' forced hard marching ho succeeded in tracking tho Indians then entrenched in tho Siero Madres, near the Chiahuahua line. The Indians had notice from their scouts two days in advance of the arrival of the troops, and determined to mako a desperato fight. Tliey secured their positions in the roughest parts of tho mountains, and thou awaited the approach of the troons. General Garcia ns soon, as he ascei taiucd nud understood the position of tho Indians, divided his troops into two columns, placing one under Colonel Torres nud headed the tothcr himself. He commenced tho battle, nnd nftcr an hour's hard fighting succeeded in dislodging the Indians from their stronghold, putting thorn to flight, nnd leaving on the field eleven of their bucks dead. Many were observed during tho action earring awny wounded. Tho Mexicans lost three stato troops, two Federals killed, and eight or nine wounded. Sax Francisco, Cal., May 9.

Like a boat without a helm, she diifted around among her friends for i while, but at last surrendered herself to a life of shamo, and sought shelter in the disreputnblo houses in Eleventh street, near Locust. She went from one to another until recently she entered that of Laura Dc Bosquet, where she mot George Sturgis. His ntteutious woro so acceptable that he was allowed to become her lover.

Humors that llrndy'is Kitngrln;; in lo I5 t'elehruled Iy Itlouiii I'l That City or Its Government Utiildiiii). May 9. Halifax is terribly excited over the present Fenian fright. Fifty tons of ammunition wero removed from tho orduauco stores to tho Citadel today, and tho fortress is being thorougly put in condition, though the military authorities refuso to connect this in tiny wny with the present excitement. They say tho place needs overhauling. Great activity prevails, not only among the military nnd at the foits, but also among the Provincial Goeinnient and civil officers. Members of the local Cabinet u ot daily, but refuso to answer questions, t ough they will not deny the tiuth of the statements alloat. The Lieutenant Goernor has quitted the city for an indefinite period. The Mayor iciutirkcd he did not expect this sensation to amount to more than the Fenian scare of IfctiG, but as tho authorities of New York taw fit to postpono on no moro urgent grounds tho opening of tho big Brooklyn Riidge tioin tho day first appointed, it did not appear superfluous for tho City Government of Halifax to use ordinary precautious on nn occasion liko thist Ho confirmed from what he heard tho lac of Governor Archibald's letter being received from Ottawa, and that the fact eo far as he knew had been correctly published, but haid the authorities did not wish tho affair to bo noised abroad. At the request of several persons he swore in this alieruoon a number of special watchmen to be under tho surveillance of tho City Marshal for service about tho Government limine, the provincial building and other points. Additional night watchmen have been nssigucd to public buildings, and the policemen throughout tho city have been ordorcd to take no relief early in tho morning between tho hours of 1 and 2 o'clock, or between 2 and 3, as is customary, and those who usually go off duty at ;i o clock a. m., nro until timber orders to remain on their bents until ti o'clock. Tho information the Government received is beginning to leak out. It is said that, besides tho threat to lay a chain of loipedoes all along the river front to be blown up on the date of llrndy s execution, and a similar scheme against the provincial building, on the night of the grand farewell bull to General Sir Patrick an airniigemeut was on foot lo utilize the &ystcm of drainage for the wholesale destruction of the city The main diains all empty into tint harbor, ami are quite easy 0f access horn t heir mouths even for a boat for some distance, and bold, careful I'cniiius in the dead ot night might by these means eflectu. illy establish a tuiiu of torpedoes even into tho heart of the city. From what can be. learned us to the source ot the information leceived by the Government it appeals that of the Philadelphia Laud League Convention reported to Ottawa that u combined attempt would bo made to avenge hUh wiougs and particularly the execution of tlio I'lnenix Park murderers, where opportunity ollered, nud that suspicions, p.iiiitcd to Halifax.
