the acient in examine the trestle. and
found it to be well built and substantial.
The trestle, in fact, iF said to be almost
new and substantiahy built with extra
braces. It is about three miles long and
twenty feet high. but the break is only
about 100 feet in length, and the fact that
such a small section of it should have

strength (i the trestle.
The work of repairing the break was
commenced as sooni as possible. MIen were
set to work to clear away the debris (N

BELFAST. IIRELi,%). dJune 10--Ti peo
ple have been wvrought to a state of great
excitement hy the riotous demonstration;s of
the Orangemen during the past two days.
All work is stopped, stores are closed and
many residences closely barricaded. Men
are in every street prepared for further
deeds of violence. The Orangemen : re
greatly incensed at the constabulary for
firing upon them anid threaten to sack tlii-Ar
barracks. Detachments of soldiers and
police from Dublin and other cities are
being forwarded to Belfast to assist the
authorities in restoring order.
At midnight a mob of Orangemen raided
a public house kept by a Catholic, named
O'Hare, and after sacking it set it on lire.
The police charged the rioters a dozen
times with bayonets, but each time were
forced back by volleys of stones. The
police were finally forced to take refuge in
the barracks. where they tired upon the
mob from the second story windows. The
mob, however. held their ground twenty
minutes l>nger, although the firing of the
police was heavy and incessant. Scores of
rioters were wounded, and it is known
positively that six men and two women
were killed and a great many wounded.
The wounded persons were removed. by
their friends, and whether their injuries are
fatal is not known. Twenty of the rioters
who received bullet wounds are lying in
one intirmary. A large number of Orange
men who took part in the riots were ar
rested to-day. The inquest onl the bodies
of those killed will be opened this after
noon. Among the killed was a barmaid
and a widow with two children.
Four of the rioters who were wounded
by the police in yesterday's riots dicd to
day. The Orangemen are making large
purchaises of arms, and are declaring that
they will have revenge upon the police for
firing into their r:xmi!.<. A: a meeting of

THlE STORY OF AN EYE-wITNEss.
BELmST, Junte 10.-An eye-witness of
Tuesday's riots gives the following descrip
tion of the scenes attending the mob's att
tack on the Bower lill police: "Wiomen

broke them into suitable sizes for use of
the rioters when they ran short of mis
siles. Women and young girls desper-atety
entreated the men to continue fighting~
whenever they flagged, offering them apron
fulls of fresh stones, and when entr-eaty
failed the women and girls dIrove tihe men
on by savage threats. The police station
is a moderate sized house. When the mo:
attacked the building the police responded
with a volley fired front the doorway. but
the rioters soon dirove the officers inl, and
they retreated up-stairs and thence main
tahed the fight by shooting from the win
