the rock foundation. A part oi' the rock
itself had beeu cut away, and the posi
tion of the tube 'us ali that could be de
sired, when, yesterday, a slight dellect ioir
was observed. The loot of the rork had
been cut away irregularly, and tho stream
acting on the tube caused it to heel over.
This being observed on board the scow
the alarm was given, but before any pre
caution could be taken the eatire struct
ure fell, crushing the boat and sinking
with her three men, and wounding an
other. The balance of the crew, imm
beiing seven men, escaped almost mirac
ulously, several of them being in a skiff
along.-ide, which it had been sent to re
cover another skifF which had at the
time broken loose. The Superintendent,
Mr. Jenkins, who was at the time acting
for CJen. Smith, escaped, as also did the
engineer, rur. jjecx, together witu live
other persons. The names of the
drowned men are Peter Harrington, Joe
Morris and Charles Holley, the latter
bting a colored man. Fortunately there
were no men, at the time, working in
the tube, they having recently left the
At the present time all trace of the
center pier is obliterated, excepting a
strong eddy at the place where the smoke
stack of the steamer reaches within a
short space of the surface of the waier.
As far as we eun. learn, the pier broke
away from the moo: ings which connected
with the,sew, and the whwl-force of the
current struck agaitmt it. The pier was
immersed some twenty-six feet in the
sand, there being seven sections in all
placed i:r position, and all of which arc
now lying at tho bottom of the river.
The fhs.t indication of the accident was
the appearance of a quantity of wreck
and lumber passing down the Missouri,
after which all kinds of exagerated re
ports prevailed. The catastrophe amounts
io not more and not less than the demol
ition of seven sections of tubing, which
had been reared at much trouble and ex
pense, and also the destruction of the
steam scow. The work will be impe
ded, but the same energy which has
prosecuted will doubtless i'ulul the enter
prise, and a few weeks will no doubt re
pair what is assuredly a great disa.-ter.
We visited the scene of tiie calaudty

see the men recently engaged in the woik
much det.res-ed at the loss of their com
rades, and the sudden stoppage whit

pride of the city.
