It is generally known in this coun
try and iu ecirnnfic circles in Eur pe
that the gigantic undertaking of bridg
ing the Mississippi River at this puiot
has been already begun, and that for
more than a year, when the state of
the river would permit, the round of
the ponderous machinery has ceased
not day nor night, but -he work of ex
cavation has been going on until the
solid rock has been reached for the
foundation of the piers upon ihe west
em shore. Oue of the piers is already
above low waiei mark a triumph u

of which ii is built are us hu&re as
these of iIih Pyramid-, aud yet, by th

mechanical and ' engineering' skill,
these g'lg.iimc block nre moved as
easily as the con mon foundation stones
of our dwellings. The outer pier is
nut yet begun, the excavations therefor
not being quite completed. At this
point the wonders begin, the end of
which is not yeu hat f ffect the
di scovery cf this tunnel under the river
may have upon the location of the
bridge ;he bard of engineers will soon
determine. About 4 1 2 p. in. yes
terday the workmen engaged m blast
ing the rocks in the bottom ot the ex
cavatiou for the foundation of this pier
discharged an extraordinary lare
blast of powder, when immediately
after the report, a strange phenome
non presented itself Instead nf hav-
ing the uual time for the smoke to
clur-'tway they saw it ascend rapidly
in a column, as though i.-um from
the smoke-stark of one of our rieamer.
This tocn cleared, and it was found
that a steady aiiMiiut cf air with a
etrange damp der was isr-uing from
the cavernous excavation, showing that
an opening bad beon made into some
unknown subterranean passage. Upon
descending to the bottom ihe usual
ainom of mud and water had almo-t
entirely disappeared through a dark.
deep open ins in the rock about ten feet
in diameter, made by the lat discharge
of powder. Ropes, ladders and torches-
were immediately procured and care
