matter to bridge the Missouri river,
and it can only be done at certain points.
The great difficulty is in Gliding a suffi

points on the river is rock known to lay
nitViic ntly near the surface to make the

advantage which is found at this point,

Wn impatient at times, but we thought
it the part of prudence to look at the
matter in the light of those whose busi

their plan ; find out the various objects
they were reaching after, and the meth
ods by which they propose to accomplish
the end they had in view. With the
light we have upon the subject, we do
not propose to go into winter quarters bv

o some purpose ; to work with those
who control the action of the company.
To piiMidi the plan of operation would
be to defeat the measures they have in

A Man Run Over and Killed.
We clip the following from the St Joe
Htrnld: M. .. " r "
A casualty occurred Tuesday night,
near the Council Bluffs Railroad Jep.t,
and on the track of that road, resulting
iu the death of man named Michael
Hardy, under circumstances utterly and
w holly beyond the control of any attache
of the road.
Upon the arrival of the 10;30 traiti
from Council Bluffs, an engine-driver
named F.dward A. Lusk took engine No.
104 to switch soma cars on a side-track
preparatory to making up the 1:30 train,
which leaves for Council Bluffs tin the
arrival of the Hannibal and St. Joe
train from the ea-t. at 1:120. It seems
there is one particular place on a certain
side-track where the e ngineers are in the
habit of clearing the engine furnaces of
ciud?r and ashes. Lu-k had run down
to the switch and was backing up to the
cars he intended to arrange for the train.
Nearing the usual place of deposits lor
cinders the lender of course being
ahead lie was slowing up for a stop,
when he heard the scream of a nian.un
der the tender and near the cinder-pile.
Lu-k immediately stopped his engine,
and, alighting and going ahead on foot,
he found the mancled body of the un
fortunate man llardv writhinson one of
the rails, two truck-wheels having passed
diagonally over his breast and abdomen
and crushing his right ami above the

At the time our reporter left the scene
about 10, o'clock p. in. tin, prisoner
was still in confinement' and guarded by
a constable, a posse of citizens, and Jus
tice Kubank, who declared the prisoner
should have a fair trial under tht law,
or the mob would be compelled to walk
over his dead body. About' fifty men
remained near the spot when our re
porter left, and threuts' continued to be
made of taking the prisoner's life. The
"law's delay" iu other cases of this kind
tends to exasperate the good people of
Kastport. and we must acknowledge that
it is a palliation for their conduct last
night. . - .
TTIFT PRISONER, v -:
Charles Murdock. is a native of North
Carolina, now a resident of Salnie county,
Missouri. At .the time of the affray he
was on bis way home from a visit-to
relatives in Wyoming, seven miles above
this city, and was accompanied by bis
uncle, Thomas Woodson. The difficulty
commenced with one of the hands of the
boat, which resulted iu the man running
away ami the prisoner firing two shots at
him whilst running. Another difficult
then took place on board of the boat. In
this mcfer the prisoner - Jo.t one of his

one of the boat.s crew, not however. '
until he had 'fired one shot,' fmd was
knocked down. After the boat landed
the prisoner demanded his revolver, and
threatened to shoot the Captain and
pilot if it was not given up.' 1 he boat
pushed off. and when about ten feet from
shorSi lie pulled fwm his p.cket a second
revolver and commenced shooting at tiie
pilot. Two shots passed throusrh the
pilot-house --one thmngh ; the '.window

last and only shot that did injury was the
one aimed at the fireman, the ball taking

The wound is not considered d-oger-ous,
yet Mr. Johnson has. no occasion to

regard the life of the prisoner as "worth

and the culprit be handed over to the
civil authorities for trial.

The shooting affray which was re

affair. When our reporter left the scene
of the dirEeutyT , there was an excited

ferry landing, The body was left unmo

The shooting of Saturday night was of

The public safety is decreased by the

The scoundrel should have been tried in

its issue of the 3d inst., lengthy extracts
from a circular of a new secret ordr to
be composed of farmers an I hortieultu

claims that the order ignores all jolitical
