Talk, Talk, Talk! IlARRODSouno, Ky., May 15. Hon. Dan Voorhees began his address this morning. Tho house was crowded. In his first sentence ho outlined his argument Uiub: "1 am hero to show you that the dofendant is guilty of no crime, either by human or Divine law," and he continued: "In the cold languago of tho indictment, he is classed us a poor murderer; but he is not of the criminal class, but a law-abiding citizen, and by the help of Hod before I get through I'll show you who the murderer is! I'll snow you who muij domeatic peace, who struck an assassin's blow at tho sanctities of home." The next phase of tho argument was a picture of the dead man's conduct at Cincinnati, and on this point facts were grouped with amazing skill. This ho intensified by a vivid delineation of Mrs. Thompson's infirmity for strong drink, and tho advantage Davis took of that. Tho dofense of Jessie Bucknor followed, coupled with the argument that tho caso was established independently of her testimony. Tho argument occupied three hours and olosod at noon. The defense rosts tho question of Thomp son's guilt upon tho plea that his reason was completely overthrown from tho timo of hearing the story of his wifo's misfortune up to tho timo of tho shooting, and that tho presumption of Davis' guilty relations was sutiicicntly strong to warrant his belief in tho story. Mr. Schuyler ono of tho witnesses says : "Thcroisnot much oxcitomoiit thoro," ho added; " not as much as a person would supposo by reading the papers. Thompson takes things coolly, and don't seem to manifest much anxiety ovor tho rosult. Tho jury aro a good, sot of men, and all appear to bo farmers. By tho way; I see thore is a big firo raging there. 1 was thinking yesterday, whiio walking through tho placo, what would bocoino of tho towA if a big firo should brook out.

New Yokk, May 15. -A correspondent from Last Chance, in Missonia county, Montana, says : Two Frcnchmon came into Last Chanco yestorday, who have boen recognized aj AuguBtine Itafello and toine, tho Trapper." both of whom have been known for years in the mining camps of Oicgon and Idaho. They have created a sensation in the display of half a dozen long buckskin bags filled with gold dust and glistening nuggets, from tho size of bird shot to thatof a walnut. The story runs that for years past theso two men have been in the habit of spending most of their time in the frontier camps, but now and then thoy would disappear for a month or or six wcoks and suddenly make their appearance, always with their pouches well filled with dust. Of course thoy are supposed to visit some placer country of fabulous richness, where by a fow days' work they are oblo to extract $2,000 or $8,000, which they spend with lavish handAltinng thoir sojourn in the camp. Attempts have been mado to follow them on their excursions, which usually resulted in their hiding in the mountain's and eluding pursuit; but one man claims to have followed them into the Kontcna country to a point near the British line, whero a narrow jpnBB was reached, and that while ono went on, the other mounted guard with a Winchester rifle. He attempted to approach tho sentinel, but was ordered to halt, accompanied by a, discharge of the rifle. The companion immediately appeared, as if the shot was a mutually understood signal, and tho intruder was warned to leave the vicinity on pain of death. Tho romantio sotting of the story makes it extremely interesting, and many of tho old frontiersmen place implicit faith in its cntiro truth, citing as a basis of their confidence tho fact that the men do disappoar and invariably return with plenty of gold; but I have honrd no satisfactory reason given for tho failure to find that narrow pass ond penetrate tho mysteries boyond during somo of tho lone intervals that the heroes of tho yarn spend in the camps. m i HUSHED UP. A Hon Who Embezzled 813.000 A Pnthcr Who Saved IIIh Iteputiitlon. New Yohk, Moy 15.
