Collapso of a Bridgo Ovor tho Lick
Forty-ilvo Workmen Curried Down AVIth-
out WnniliiB Nearly All Kniod "tho
Two Coutriietori Among the
Cincinnati, June 10. A bridgo In
cottr&o of construction over the Licking
river between Covington anil Newport,
Ky., fell this morning, unil of forty-live
workmen on tho structure, so fur us is
now known only two escaped unhurt.
The high river had washed out tho
earth about tho supports of tho false
work, and it is said one of the contract
ors said a day or two ago that ho was
t if raid tho structure would not stand
under tho weight of tho heavy material.
IJut still they kept at work.
A force of forty-three ineu un
der the direction of Robert and William
laird, the contractors, was engaged in
putting in place the heavy iron work
on the main span. Suddenly, without
warning, there -win u crnoldlng sound,
a swaying of the structure and a head
long plunge of tho whole mass of tim
bers, iron and workmen into the river
ilfty fiAil below. Fow forms wero to
be seen struggling on tho surface, tho
others were drowned or crushed by tho
Those who came out of tho wreck un
injured, as nearly as could bo learned,
were as follows: Murray Ilairden and
James Caldwell. Others went to their
homes and could not be traced.
While most of tho workmen wero
from abroad, there were enough from
tho vicinity to mako the scenes on shore
of the most sickening character. Tear
ful women were to be seen eagerly peer
ing into, the countenances of the recov
ered bodies as they were borne to the
shore, and every now and then a pitiful
wail of anguish told that some friend
or relative had been recognized.
It was slow work to get the bodies
from the wreck.
Among tho dead were the two con
tractors, the l.aird brothers of Pitts
burgh, who were on tho bridge with
their men superintending tho work at
the fatal moment. Though ib is said
that one of them had spoken of fear
concerning the safety of the supporter,
it appeared by their act yesterday in
going with their men that they had no
such fear as would keep them from
sharing with their men the danger.
The body of one was among the first
recovered and the other lies buried in
the river beneath the ruins of his own
The span between the two piers looks
to be .10 feet. The height of the truss
which was to form the bridge span be
tween these two piers was sixty-fivo
feet above water. False work in piling
unil timber had been constructed in tho
river. On the top of this false work the
construction of the iron truss began ex
actly midway between the two piers
nnd the work was pushed from the mid
dle both ways. Five bents or sections
of the ponderous iron work had been
constructed. Each bent or section was
thirty feet long, making nearly half
the span. On the top of this was an ap
paratus known to bridgemen as the
traveler, which is used to extend tho
structure from the ends.
A TORNADO IN MAINE.
night Lives Lost ly tint Sinking of u
IIanoou, Me., June 10. What ap
pears to have been n. repetition of tho
Chicago tornado parsed over the south
ern end of this city late yesterday,
crossed over the river and went through
the city of IJrower. It tore oil' half a
mile of race course fence, destroyed and
moved buildings, leveled horse sheds
and did other damage.
On the river was the steam launch
Annie, which plied between Ihmgor
and Hampden. It had just left tho
docks with twenty passengers.
Uain was falling and the canvassed
hides were buttoned down. The wind
tore these in and the boat was over
turned and sunk. On the opposite sido
of the river lay the four-masted schoon
er Maria O. Teal of JSoston. Mate Nor
man McLoud lowered away his boatand
with four out of the eiew rescued six
men and three women, while three
others swam ashore. The body of Miss
Ilnttie Adams daughter of James
Adams, a rich lumberman, has been re
covered. Seven bodies are missing.

SUNDAY SCHOOL UNION.
Mlsslonury Work of tho American Orgiui
I.iitlon Tlio Good Accomplished.
Fiiir.ADi:r.i,iiiAl Juno 17. Tho year
of missionary work for tho neglected
children of our country, in tho Amer
ican Sunday school union, which closed
March 1, 1803, was very fruitful in bles
sing. Sixteen hundred and sixty-four
new Sunday schools were organized in
places that wore previously entirely
destitute of roligiou? privileges, con
taining 7,018 teachers and 59,551 schol
ars. Aid was givon to 2,127 other
schools, with 14, .103 teachers and 135,
29!) scholars; while, in addition to this,
4,58(1 schools that had been before re
ported were aided, with 25,790 teachers
and 299,200 scholars. Huskies all this
direct Sunday school work, the mis
sionaries of the society distributed by
sale and gift (1.45S Ilibles and 9,115 Tes
taments. They made 50,582 visits to
families for religious conversation and
prayer, and delivered 12,474 sermons
and addresses. Sixty-six hundred and
seventy-eight conversions were reported
tis resulting from tho evangelistic la
bors of these earnest and faithful men;
and 210 churches have been developed
from the Sunday schools established by
them, while regular preaching services
have been secured in many other places
as an outgrowth of this Sunday school
work. It is utterly impossible to esti
mate the far-reaching and beneficent
results of such a missionary work as
this, and till accomplished iu one year.

gaining fresh accessions. The lava
glows with a white heat and tit night
the bridge is magnificently beautiful.
The center of the principal era tor
shows increased activity and huge
masses of lava are frequently ejected.

WHO WERE "THE HESSIANS?"
Roino Light on the Sulrct from Uto Pages
Tho term "Hessians," ns generally
used in this country, wlis ilrst intended
to signify a menu-spirited man who for
inoney hires himself to do tho dirty
work of another and his lighting. Tho
word with these meanings was never
recognized until after tlio defeat of
Ilurgoync, nnd the peculiar infamy
which attached to it is derived from tho
supposed voluntary employment of tho
Hessian soldiery by Great ltrlUiin
against the Americans.
That there was no such voluntary
employment is historically true, nnd tho
reproach which has lcen so long con
nected with tho word Hessian in this
country is us undeserved as it is un
founded, for the Hessian soldiers had
no more option in their employment to
light against us than had our negroes
to work our rice, and cotton Acids be
fore the war. As men they were honest,
industrious, and peculiarly domestic,
nnd would have given half they wero
worth or years of labor to havo remained
in their fatherland.
To Kngland alone belongs tho dis
grace and Infamy of enticing the rulers
of these men by large subsidies to com
pel their subjects to light her wars. Tho
facts are these: On February 10, 1770,
Lord Weymouth laid before tho houso
of lords a treaty with tlio Hesse
Darmstadt, dated January 5, 1770;
second, a treaty between George III.
and the Duko of Ilrunswiek, dated Jan
uary 0, 1770, and third, a treaty with
the landgrave of the Hesse-Cassol, dated
January f5, 1770, for the line of troops
to tho number of 17,!!00. After argu
ments pro and eon, and after much op
position, the treaties wore ratified.
Ilrunswiek furnished 4,0St men, for an
annual subsidy of 15,510; Ilosse-Cassol.
12,000 men, for JU10.IIS1; Hesse-Darmstadt,
OSS men, for JM.000; Prince ol
Waldcck, 070 men, on about tho same
terms. Tho king of England further
agreed to guarantee tho. dominions of
these various provinces against any for
To the Englishman belongs the terri
ble infamy and disgrace of hiring men
of tin alien nice to slaughter man as
noble as themselves, and related by ties
of blood tind speaking tho samp lan
guage. But to tho landgraves of Ifesse
Cassel, Hesse-Darmstadt and duko of
Ilrunswiek uttueh a deeper infamy and
disgrace more damnable for tho man
ner in which they obtained possession
of their subjects. They Ure them with
out warning or an opportunity fbr
leave-taking from their families and
sent them to a foreign land, and many
to their graves.
Such wore the foreigners to whom
we. in our short-sightedness, have at
tached all tho brutality and tiendish
ness which obtained with England's
king, and which grew rank and foul in
tho lives and acts of those German
princes. Lute though it be to do
justice, yet let us endeavor to divest
the name of Hessian of tho indignities
which have surrounded it, and retain
only our memory of hatred for these
embodiments of 'human demonism who
bade their subjects to lift unwilling
hands against men whom these subjects
would have gladly protected. Charles

Columbus believed the solid part of
the sphere to be larger than the liquid
part, and the distance by the sunset
road between the East Indies and west
ern Europe to bo less than it is. lbit in
those two capital errors lay the great
incentive to the execution and success
of his purpose. Had ho known the vast
planetary spaces covered by the waters;
the continent interposed between his
own Eu rop and tho hind of diamonds,
gold and spices the dillieulty and peril
of the passage vet to be braved in the
far regions of the antarctic pole in order
to sail from our continental Europe to
the oriental Indies by the western way,
he would perhaps have shrunk back in
