from Twenty-first to Twenty-fourth street
is completed, with the exception of the
jumping off places, for which as yet no
steps have been furnished. We came
down tho whole length, nnd found the
whole railed. And there is also, another
thing which attracted our notice, and
that is that all along the whole length, on
the roadside, are lying the old rails, pieces
of plank, odds and ends, etc. There they
lie at least "much" of them together with
pieces of surplus now railing about Twenty
second street. About the same locality
in front of two or threo houses, wo ob-'
served nice littte piles of theso old rails,
and some that looked quite sound, hauled
for summor flro wood. Altogether thoro
yet remained several loads, which, if
sold for fire wood, would put money into
tho city's purso. We "interviewed" a
couplo of persons who had these piles with
the following results :
Q. How much a load 'do you give for
theso old rails and boards ?
A. Don't know.

We see by tho circular Issued from the
ofilco of tho county superintendent of
schools, under dato of the 31st July, that
tho Alexander county normal school will
commenco on Monday next, tho Cth Inst.,
and continue for four weeks in tho fourth
ward school house of this city, Tho exer
cises will bo conducted by Prof. Alfred
Kirk, principal of tho Carpenter street
school, Chicago. The school will be
oponed at 9 n. m. each morning. When
it is understood that tho instruction given
to teachers for the term of four weeks is
entirely gratuitous, wo need scarcely say
that It will not only bo a duty incumbent
upon all present and intending teachers
to reap tho benefits therofrom, but that it
ought to be estimated as a great privilege
and necessity to be by no means dispensed
with. Mr. Carpenter is an able oducator,
and ono who is both from experience and
ability fully ablo to impart, in an affable
and agreeable manner, the instruction re
quired in tho normal department. His
agreeable mannor has won for blm a high
reputation, and his influences are some

We rasy just close this notice by obssrv
ing that a teacher may possess the learn

.teacher. Cairo, however, of late years,
has been particularly fortunate in the
choice of teachers.
ONE MAN KILLED AND VIVE WOUNDED
xesieruay afternoon about 4 p. m. a
rumor reached town that the railroad
bridge in process of construction across
the Cache river had fallen, but a few min
utes previous to the news reaching us
Hastening to the telegraph office, (Col
Wood having been absent fur some time
on the road,) we were kindly furnished by
Mr. t . 8. Kent, tolegraph operator, with
what Httlo be had ascertained. The Intel
ligence given us was to tho effect that the
bridge suddenly fell, from what cause ho
had not learned, and with it several men
who wore working on it, one of whom was
instnntly killed by tbo falling timbers,
and live others more or less injured.
Mounij CITY, Ills., Aug. 1, 1872.
Editor Bulletin: The bridge being
erected over Cache river near this place by
the Cairo and Ylncennex railroad company
fell ut 1:30 p. in. killing one man, D. Gallo
way, of Toledo, Ohio, nnd wounding live
others, including K. Hoffman, slightly. The
span was 100 feet long, and was nearly ready
for tho laying of the Iron. Cache river ut
that point Is full of logs, und It is supposed
that tho under or temporary support or
trelllslng was located on home of them, and
the increased weight caused them to move
or settle, and the wholo span fell at once.
The wounded are being properly cared for.
Yours, Jno. W. Carteii.
In Hazlawood precinct, a man named
Tufts, whllo entering the door of his own
house, towards evoning, on Friday last
was shot in the back by a man supposed
to bo named Hoffman. The latter was ar
rostcd and examined beforo Squiro Put
nam, Tho ball which entered the body of
Tufts, being oxtractod, it was found when
compared with thoso which wero used in
Hoffman's gun to be exsctly the same size
and weight. A gun patch was also found
used in firing, which corresponded with
those which had been cut from a pieco of
cloth by Hoffman, Strong circumstan
tial evidence in addition to tho foregoing
was produced ; and it was proven that the
suspocted man Hoffman had quarrelled in
a saloon a few hours previous to tho shoot
ing. Hoffman, however, was reloasod,
and Is now at largo. Comment is need
less, and we can only inquire, have we all
the particulars and Is this the finality, or
will It bo terminated in a hanging?
