The Northwestern Company has expended much money and immense work, but the situation gradually developed it self so much worse than was suspected when repairs were begun that long delay has been unavoidable. Several long cuts were perfect quagmires. The ground appeared to issue water from «very pore a crow-bar set upright would settle two-thirds of its length into the mortar beds, and a locomotive plunged ties and rails clear out of sight. As we understand, repairs were made by ditching aud draining, and by prying up the track aud plank ing lengthwise under the ties. This latter was done once, twice and in some cases as often as three times, with cross-ties between each layer of plank, before ihe kieoasottte would cease to drive the whole structure iuto the mud—in the same moment filling all the drains or ditches which had been made. But at last, we are told, patience and perseverance has con quered, as usual, aud regular trains were exiiected to commence running yesterday.

'Bridgemanfe" Conclusions Ob jected to—Some Mistakes Cor rected and what appear to be the Facts in tho Caso Stated. We received a week ago a letter from the member of the Board whose locality seemed to indicate himself as the most prominent recipient of "Bridgeman V attentions iu the com munication published two weeks aince and although it was thereiu expressly stated that the same was not intended for publication, we shall yet venture to make extracts from it as tbe only way at our command to get a statement of the case at all likely to do justice to the intentions of the Board in tbe premises. Aud thus we make our desire to do full justice the excuse for an apparent breach of con fidence. The letter referred to, or much of it as is necessary iu this con nection is as follows: lie (Bridgeman) makes some very grave charges agaiust the Board or at least a portion of them. In the first place the Board reserved the right to reject any or all bids. We did at first couclude to let Mr. Carey have both, but afterwards our com missioner informed us that both bridges should be built at ttie same time as they were on roads that were traveled very much and it was actu ally necessary to have them completed as soon a« possible, and it was impossi ble for one mail to build both bridges as soon as they ought to be to accomo date the travel. From the bids put in the Spriugdale man's was next to tbe lowest. He ottered in his bid to build the bridge for $6 00 per perch and al low $2 00 per perch for the stone iu tbe old abutments. The balance of the bids (except Carey's) did not offer any thing for the stone. You can see the bids as they were put in for the work by calling on Mr. Brink. I know there was not in any of tbe bids by tbe Board, nei ther was either one of the Board in terested in the bids of any man. Our object was to build the bridge the soonest possible to accommodate the public. I do not intend this for pub ication, only as an explanation. By calling on Mr. Briuk and Mr. Hatch you can get all the particulars. r. vs. A. Ken dall. We understand this to be a test case in which a large number of citi zens of Marion have combined to resist the payment of certain notes made to the railway company named and con ditional upon the completion a»d oper ation of the road to Marion and the erection of a depot there. These things have ali been done and the Company is now suing for the collection of the notes. Tbe defendants resist, not up on non-performance of the conditions, but upon the gro urul that the notes were obtained by misrepresentat'n and fraud in that the $2",0 which they were given to assist in raising was not needed to secure the road as was rep resented by its officers. The township had previously voted a five per cent, tax in aid of the road. Col. I. M. Preston and J. B. Young appear for the Company, and Messrs. Hubbard, Corbett and Davis for defendants. Nearly as large a delegation from Cedar llapids was brought hither on account of the transfer to this Court of a cause involving the title to certain water facilities—the same case in which according to a prevalent item the written evidence occupied over four hundred page* of legal cap. Among the Rapidites in attendance were Messrs. W. D. Watrous, Jno. F. Ely, Win. Greene, I. N. Wbittam, M. P. Mill*, Wui. B. Leech and N. B. Brown. There is no doubt, howev er, but the bid was perfectly straight, and just as Leonard made it, if he did spell his own name differently iu the two places. -ud. That, as appears from the above quotations, Leonard did not bid at $6 per perch, but at $0.50 and jsG.lTi, and that his ofl'er for old stone was only for "what I ma// For Adv«rtlm»r. auy changes made H. C. GILL. Now the pritae necessity for the in troduction of the above letter exists in the fact that without it matters could not have leen presented iu tbe light which it is fair to presume must have prompted the final action of the Board. This is so because the inquiry and examination recommended by its writer shows him to be laboring under several mistakes as to matters of fact— knowledge of which would have pre vented us from making precisely the explanation which he seemed to de sire and cxpcct. And before briefly steting the errors made both by Bridgeman" and in this letter, we wish it understood that truth in the premises is all we are aiming at. Our first correspondent evidently thought there was a "nigger in the wood pile," and we are free to say that if this were so, (or whenever it may be so in any official wood pile,) we are perfectly willing to uncover the eolored gentle man to the full g. z of an interested public. Rut while this is true, it is also true that we would not under anyi consideration do the slightest injustice to the acts and intentions of any ofll cer or individual—whom, of course, plain truth should not ofTeud. Inquiry from Messrs. Brink, Hatch, Supervisor Mo tilt and Contractor Leon ard, and examination of all the bids and paper connected therewith, ena ble ue to conclude 1st. That "Bridgeman" waa mista ken in thinking that tbe successful bid (Jno. Leonard's) for the stone work of the Hugar Creek bridge waa changed after being handed to the Board. The error probably arose from the fact that the main part of the bid —"to build the 80-foot span for $6 f0 per perch aud the 100-foot span for $6 25 per perch" was signed John Leonard, spelled with au a aud the postscript, ollering to give per perch for the old bridge stone I may use," is signed by Leonard, spelled ith an use"—-leaving it op tional with himself whether he used any or not. .'id. That the contract for the Sugar Creek bridge waa fully aud fairly awarded to Mr. Carey, and that he was so iu formed by a member of the Board previous to its being reconsidered aud given to Leonard. 4th. That Mr. Leonard's bid was not the next lowest to Mr. Carey's nor as it the only one beside his which offered anything for the old stone. M. Town's bid, as compared with Leouard's, offered over $200 outright fot the stoue iu the old piers and any of the lower bidders would undoubtedly have been glad to have paid a reasona ble price therefor if made a condition to the acceptance of their bids. oth. The speedy completion of both bridges was undoubtedly highly de sirable for the public convenience, and properly looked after by the Board. It has been suggested that Carey's asserted ability to give bonds for the completion of the work as required should have been tested—or that at all events the next lowest bidder should have had the award but we are not criticising the action of the Supervis ors, but only stating what we ascertain to be the facts iu a transaction which has been called iu question, and which we leave without further comment. A GLEAM OF LIGHT. The Hydra-Monster being Cbaat ed in High Places.. I am glad to see men iu fiigTi pla ces throwing their influence against intoxicating liquors. Not only eaii nent, but good men and heart broken and crushed women, 011 their knees are joining thein in seeking protec tion at the hands of our rulers against the traffic of ardent spirit.--. Our representatives iu Congress have ta ken a wise step iu this direction ii passing a bill providing against the promotion of any officer in the army who may be addicted to the use of intoxicating liquors. Who will not say amen to this? Why so many re verses in our late war? Is it not fact that many mothers have been made to weep over their dead ones that might now be a blessing to them around the fireside had it not been that so many foolish charges were made by the command of some officer when his brains were crazed by li quor And now papers through the count ry call him a great warrior when lie could more properly be called a "military murderer." For proof of this hundreds of our noble soldiers are ready to come to our rescue aud 110 doubt our honorable representa tives, in passing the above law. had an eye to this. But should this precaution be tak en with our military men alone? It should apply to all who are entrusted with human life—in time of peace as well as in war. Kvery railroad from President to the brakesman, and ev» L'ry steamer or iloating vessel from captain to the steersman should be held to strict abstinence. Our repre sentatives at home and abroad, oiir judges from the least to the greatest, should be put to the same test. What client would have a drunken attorney to take an important case into court, or judge sit in judgment upon his case while crazed with intoxicating liquor? None. 1 have learned through an Illinois paper that the House of liepresenta tives of Indiana adopted almost unan imously a law to remove from office, for the crime of drtinkeness, menl holding office under the laws of that State but when the bill was sent to Senate, the rules were suspended by a large vote in order to take the vote upon the bill. When they wer« ready to vote the bill could not 1# found. What became of it? Per haps some Senator's fingers found way to the Senate file, and through a joke, or hankering after his "tea," took it from the iile to save him in his senatorship. Again, look at the conduct of Uni ted States Judge Delano, of Kansas, who is to be impeached for habitual Irunkenness. It is sometimes said that our President is given to wine but look at his conduct as well as that of Vice President Colfax on New Year's day they had neither wine or whiskey on their side tables. ur town of Tipton is moving for ward in the right direction. .Much has been said about hanging being a "relic of barbarism," equally so is the Jibc.rty «f eottin£ or selling in toxicating liquors.
