Fatal Accident to a Circus Pervoum xr. —The Springfield (111.) Journal, of April 80, says:—At Danville, on Friday last, as the performers of Joe Rutledge's circus wero practicing in the tent, one of the athletes, named Charles Miller, met with an accident which it is expected will prove fatal. The accident occurred while turning a double somersault through a hoop. Miller had been turning double somersaults in the ordinary way, when, against the counsels of his comrades, he undertook to double himself through a hoop ; but alas ! his foot naught against the hoop, and he fell upon the back of his head and shoulders, injuring the vertebrae to the extent above indicated. Communi cation between the brain and the lower part of the body and the lower limbs was instanly cut off, so that a pin might have been run into him up to its head without bis knowledge. When the accident occurr ed he was laid upon a pallet and physicians were sent for. Tho Rev. Mr. Leaton was summoned to the injured man's side, when probably for the first time the voice of prayer and supplication to Almighty God was heard within that tent. As the ath lete lay in bis spangled costume, suffering the keenest possible pangs of mortal pain, and knowing soon that he must die, he lisped his Saviour's name in the most ago nising earnestness. His comrades speak of him in the warmest terms of regard. He is twenty>ouc years of age. At about sundown be »as remoyed to the Galt House, but the exertion was so great that he fainted befere the task was accomplish In it, Among distinguished foreigners in New York is Major Hunsen, of Norway, eight feet high.

A S 600 miles of the western portion of the line, beginning atSapragieptp, arealso doe., but 267 Miles Regain To be finished, to open the Grand Through Line to the Pacific. This Opening will certainly take place early this season. Besides a donation from tho Government of 12,000 acres of land per mile, the Company 1« entitled to a subsidy in U. S. Bonds pn its line as completed and accepted, ftt the avprago rate of about $26,500 per mile, according to the difficul ties encountered, for which the Government takes a second lien os spcprUy. Whether subsidies arq given to any other companies or not, the Govern ment will comply with all its contracts with thq Union Pacific Railroad Company. Nearly the whole amount of bonds tp >yhich the Coiup*«jr will be entitled have already been delivered. FIRST MORTGAGE BONDS AT PAR. By its charter, the Company Is permit, ted to issue its own First Mortgage Bonds to the same amount us the Government Bonds, and no more. These Ronds are a First Mortgage upon the entire road ant) all its equipments. They have thirty years to ruu, at B 14 per cent, and both PRINCIPAL AND INTEREST Ana PAYABLE IN GOLD, Such securities are generally valuable in proportion to the length of time they have to run. The longest six per cent, gold interest bonds of the U. S. (the '81's) will he due in 12 years, and they are worth 112. If they had 30 years to run, they would stand at not less than 125. A per fectly safe First Mortgage Boud like tho Union Pacific should approach this rate, The demand for European investment is already considerable, and on tho comple tion of the work will doubtless carry the price to a large premium. SECURITY OF THE BONDS. It need« no argument to show that a First Mortgago of $20,500 per mile upon what for a long time must be the only railroad connecting the Atlantic and Pa cific States is perfectly secure. The en tire amount of the mortgage will be about $30,000,000, and the interest $1,800,000 per annum in gold. The present currency cost of this interest is less than $2,500, 000 per annum, while the gross earnings for the year 18U8, from way business only, on an average of less than 700 mile» of road iq operation, were more than Zlï E -MILL!ONS DOLLAR^. The details of which are as follows: From Passengers.$1,024,005.97 " Freight.,.. " Express... " Mails. .2,040,233.19 .51,423.08 . 136.235.69 Miscellaneous.91,626.27 Government troops...104,077.77 " freight. ..449,440.83 Coutrrctors' men.201,179.09 " material.968,430.32 Total. $5,066,651.61 This large amount is only an indication of the immense traffic that must go over the through line in a few month», when the great tide of Pacific coast travel and trade will begin. It is estimated that this business must make the earnings of the road ^4 FROM FIFTEEN TO TWENTY Millions a Year, As the supply of these Bonds will soon cease, parties who desire to invest in them will find it to their interest to do so af once. BONDS BOUGHT AND SOLD. A new Pamphlet and Map was issued October, 1st, containing a report of the progress of tho work to that date, and a more complete statement in relation to tho value of the bonds than can be given in an advertisement, which will be sent free on application.
