complement of passengers, every berth being
taken, and a jollier set of ive
never saw before; they laughed immoderately,
and there way not a s'mgle case ol
duritii! the voyage. The only
occutence during the tripwaa a few who
very neatly choked with laughter, while
others gave vent to their emotion
tears. As a commedian John Thompson

astonishing, and" imitation Is out of the
question.,

Editor llouiuhilout :
On Tuesday evening of last week the C. it
0. train from Louisville eroded the railroad
bridge running at the into of 20 miles an
hour, la not this last liiniiing in the cit
limits in violation of law. The approach
to the bridge is on a curve, and cannot be
seen by the engineer in time to check his
train, should there be obstruction of any
kind on the bridge. With the recent flight-fill
accidents on this road from carelessness
is it not time to enforce the law? There
will be little comfort in what the grand jury
may do vvhen one of the.-e trains is thrown
in the Kentucky river with its living freight.
A bull made a frightful accident on the
Shtlbyville road Inst winter A mule or a
horse or a cow can do likewUo at the
Frankfort bridge.
Has not this carelessness caused already
loo many lives to be lost ? There are law's
to protect the public, both on and oil' the
train. The bridge is in the city limits, I
therefore call the attention ol the Chief ol
Police to the ordauce in regard to this fast
running. The Chief is urgently invited to
visit the bridge, at train time, and see at
what rate of speed they cross the bridge.
By enforcing tho law strictly a frightful
accident will be prevented. Should the city
fail to vn force the law against this fast
and earless running over this bridge,
the matter will bo referred to the grand
jury. It is somewhat singular with what
care the officer.-, who's duty it is to enfotce
the laws for tho public safety, permit them
to be vioIateH. My only object in presenting
this subject to the public is to prevent
a terrible accident from happening at
this bndge, and to save, if possible, a train
of living freight from being thrown through
the bridge into the liver by tho carlessuesa
of some train men and city oflicers.
Safety.
