A joint meeting of the western freight association, southwestern? .association and trans-Missouri committee is in ses sion here, to-day, discussing tbe transit privileges on grain shipments from trans-Missouri territory.- The schedule of rates will be arranged, so as to do away with the discrimination which now exists in oertain locations. A very peculiar circumstance, which is probably the only circumstance of the kind eyer recorded, prevented a possible loss of life by tbe breaking down of an engine on the Missouri Paciflo road, a few days ago. Engine 184, broke down near Muscotah, Atchison county, as a result of the break ing of a portion of the flange of one of tbe driving wheels. The broken part of flange flew backward, striking tbe air hose and cutting it. This brongbt tbe car to a sad den standstill and probably averted a seri ous wreck, as tbe engine was running at a biich rate rf speed. No one on either the engine or car were injured.

Chippbwa Falls, Wis., December 1 The ioe gorge remains unbroken here, and water is now running over tbe lower section of tbe oity and stead ily rising. All hope of breaking the gorge has beea abandoned, and all at tention is given now to tbe saving of household goods and merchadise. hv ery team io the city is kept busy mov iog people to pUoes of safety At 9 o'clock this morning, the water had orept up to the bridge aad to tbe post office, two blocks from the river. . Tbe river is now twenty-two feet above low water mark. The Wisconsin Central tracks are covered with water two feet, and the Omaha tracks are used in tbe tranter of trains at Eau Claire. Dun can creek, tributary to tbe Chippewa river, bas also doue muoh damage, as the water is backing up from tbe river Many narrow escapes are reported, and an increase of loss is expected. . Tbe town is now deserted ; the cold continues intense, five degrees below zero, and there is muoh suffering. The report that another gorge was forming at Little Falls, thirty miles above bere, was brought in this m irning, and In creased tbe panic, as in case of its breaking suddenly, tbe whole city will be swept away, lbe report from uu rand, that thirty people lost their lives, cannot be verified, and is pos sibly greatly exaggerated.
