ARMED ATTACK UPON SOCIALISTS IN ODESSA. c°rrespondent, writing from Odessa on the loth ult., says: This week has been rendered a rather remarkable one in the annals of Odessa by an unusual event, which one can scarcely help regarding it as a ridiculous imitation of the mad demonstration J WfS last year in front of the Kazan Cathedral of St. Petersburg. A few obscure young men and a. couple of shop-girls were suspected of working a private press in th e interest of NeSgheeleesm" -a word coined by Fourghénieff in one of his novels from nihil, because Neegheeleesta believe in the existence of nothing without physical proof, and re- cognise no social or moral law that does not accord with their Socialistic principles. The procurer ordered their lodgings to be searched. This consisted of two or three rooms on the third or top floor of a house in a respectable street close to the building of the City Guard, and consequently right in the heart of the town. Accordingly, towards midnight on Mon- day some officers and men of the gendarmery and pollee visited the Poises to make the search. The houses of Odessa, and, indeed, P ??8 throughout Russia, like the greater number of old intra-mural dwellings on the Continent, are not entered by the kind of street-door we have in England. Nearly every house has its own courtyard, reached through a gateway, and in this yara or under the gateway are one or more entrances, according to the size of the premises, to the different o gmgs. Latch-keys are scarcely known here, but a °r j"*—. a at the gates — for they are wifch a Iittle wicket in them— any hour Of the evening or night after they are f .T frequently his room is at the far end Hainan &nd in any case he generally falls ,rather early, so that it is no uncommon ,3 a Person to have to ring five minuteB or ""Of6 being let in.

They consequently resolved to Pursuers at bay as long as possible, in order i 6 to burn all papers, and therefore actually fi T0rs from a balcony and from windows down police in the street.
