A FIGHT AT ODESSA. Advices which we have received from Russia give the following particulars ef the fight that took place a £ Odessa on the 12th instant between a band. of Socialists and the police. For some time past the police although having in their custody more than 4Q0 individuals. charged with conspiring against the. Government, have suspected the existence of other secret societies, and on the evening of the l|2th instant resolved to search the lodgings in, a building known as Petrovsky House, in Sadovoifstreet. On enquiring at the door of one set of apartments, which was full of company, t^e. gpndarme officer was refused admittance, He Whiattqd for seme gendarmes to come, upon which the pepplefired several revolver shots at the officer, who Seated,.and, then blockaded the door. Reinforce- ments of police were brousht, and the conspirators, who were armed with swords, rifles, and revolvers, driven into one apartment, in which they secured themselves so effectually and maintained such a steady fire upon the besiegers that the latter could not force the place. The building was thereupon surrounded by a cordon of police and a detachment of gendarmes armed with rifles, brought to the front of the house, whence successive volleys were fired into the window of the room occupied by the conspirators. Still the Socialists held their own and. maintained a steady fire at the police forces ba the end a detachment of troops was brought from the garrison, and these attacking the place in down- right earnest, smashed in the doors and secured the aolllpiiaton. During the fight ten persons were wounded—the gendarme officer, four gendarmes, two policemen, the concierge, and two of the revohttionists. The conspirators only mustered seven strongs—fire J men and two women—and against them were over fifty gendarmes and policemen, and double that num- < ber of Mfantry soldiers.
