Truffle Delayed by n Mishap on the Lone IlridKf. A broken rail on tbe draw ot the Long Bridge blocked steam traffic on that thor oughfare from G till 7:30 this morning. A section of the extreme northwest rail of the draw, about two feet in length, snapped at the north end. The accldeilv was discovered by IJrawleudcr Marvle Just In time to flag train No. 412, the Alexandria -local, which left Alexandria, at e) o'clock, thus averting what might have been u wreck. Tbe train was Just steaming away from the station at the south end of the bridge when the draw-tender observed tin- break. It occurred at a busy lime, when trains are coming and going, and l.erore the de ranged rail could be replaced with a sound one six north and south bound trains were blocked. A gang of track hands was soon oh the scene, and a temporary rail Inserted, which later was replaced bv a permanent one. At 7:30 the track was clear, and the Blchmond & Uauvllle southbound passed out, and soon things were normal. The theory of iheaecideiit is that theendof the rail was snapped by a heavy freight train which passed soutii between 6 and 6 o'clock. The drop lu the temperature hod contracted the rails, leaving a wide Joint, and the extremities of the bridge and draw rails not being flush, a vigorous Jar resulted, thus breaking the end of one rail.
