On Tuesday as a drove of bullocks
numbering a1out 140 were being driven
from t'.ie Canadian shed to the Wood
side lairuge at ' Birkenhead, a singular
accident hpiened. On the river 6ide
of the Alfred dock there is a narrow un
dulating bridge, recently placed there
by the Mersey docks and harbor board
for the purpose of conveniently transfer
ing cattle to - he lairages. The bridge
will allow two bullocks to pass over
abreast, but yesterday the beasts became
jammed and one of them leaped into
the Alfred d ick and was immediately
followed by !4 others.
The scene i a the water was most ex
traordinary; but, strangeto recount, one
cf the bullocks swam to the steps and
walked out in the most intelligent fash
ion and was followed by 11 others.
The thirteenth, however, slipped back
into the wa;er, where - the remaining
21 were swimming about for a con
siderable time, intimately a num
ber of men put off in boats, and tying
ropes around the beasts drew them in
to the wall, and thus supported them
until a crane was brought into use and

for their strange immersion. A period
of three hours elapsed before the work
of recovery was completed, and during
this time the liveliest excitement was
apparent among the numerous specta

Work on the great bridge over the

commence at an early day, the engineers
having finally decided on the exact loca

building of t ic bridge will cover a period
of three years, and the services of a small
army of workmen will lie required.
When complete, it is expected to be one
of the finest bridges in the world.

Bartholdl'a Latent Work.
M. Bartholdi, the eminent sculptor, is
putting the last touches to his colossal
work, the group which, in accordance
with the will of Baron Gruyer, is to be
erected in Switzerland in commemora
tion of the assistance rendered by that
country to France during the war of
1870-1. The prompt 6uccor afforded to
the city of Strasbnrg by the Swiss after
the terrible siege and the hospitable re
ception extended to the wornout troops
of Bourbaki's army are both represented
allegorically on the monument, which
shows Switzerland covering Alsace with
one protecting arm, while with the other
she sustains a figureof wounded France.
This 6uperb work is to be erected on a
