Nearly one thousand people attended
the opera house at tho opening to witness
"A Bunch of Kef's," and about nine hun

ures of the actors for rounds of applause,
and wrote his criticism accordingly: "'A

-And now the voice ot the wood vender
with the sharp complaint of tho buck-saw
as it strikes a refractory splinter, is hoard
through the city, and there is mourning in
the house of hira of wood stoves, as he
compares the prico of wood (in the wood
shed), f 5 per cord, with tho price of coal,
3 per ton. Yea, verily, he has cause to
mourn. The winter supply muut bo laid in
now or never; tne colored man ana brother
who encases to bring ten cords and never
shows up again is getting more plentiful
every Besson. This is a wooden country
most emphatically, but tho roads, aud tho
said colored brother, there is tho hitch.
Ask a man on a load of wood, behind
a pair of skeletons covered with horso or
mule hides where he conies from and tho
answer is stereotyped "Beech Itidgo." It
takes very littlo raiu or wet weather to cut
Beech Rid"B off from tho rest of tho
world by wagon road, therefore the month
of October must ba devoted to wood haul
ing, and tho house keepers who fail to get
their work in this mouth generally get
left. Tho prica of wood has not changed
in ten years; wood is hard to get, and wo
believe tho time is uear at hand when tho
exasperated head of tho family (man or
womau) will bo seen figuratively kick
inff out their wood stove nnd replacing
them with coal.

tuo accident occurred but Patrick Kelly
and live of bis comrades named Magulre,
iShorddel, Dillon, elsh and Connors
were imprisoned in tho sub-mariue cham
ber. The caisson is larger than any of tho
others sunk for the bridge. It is sixty
feet long and f rty feet in width, aud
at tho timo of th . accident was sixty feet
below tho surface of the water. The
entrance to tho caisson proper Is made
through a perpendicular Iron pipe which
is divided Into locks. Tho worklug
chamber, which is brilliantly lighted
with electricity, is reached t .rough these
locks, each lock being protected by a
gate. At tho time ol the accident tho
men were working in tho chamber
under a p essure of 2S0 pounds of air,
and when th locks Hooded tho only en
trance or exit was cut off.
The air apparatus, however, coutinued
to york, which was their only salvation,
and they remained in that condition until
rescued by the ingenious .superintendent,
John O'Brien, who conceived an idea
about eleven o'clock and quicklvput.it
Into practice. The outer lock was five
feet underwater, and the lock next below,
which was tlftcen feet deep, wa lull ol
Mr. O'Brien made a f.lso lock of
boards and caulked it with oakum and

John Burns, descended through their
rudely constructed pipe and r 6cued th)
six men who had for tours been in 6uch
a perilous situation. '
Tho rescued men were pale, haggard
and muddy, but with tho exception of
one whoso head was cut y a falling
spike were uninjured. This act ol

applauded, and will not soon be forgot
