" "18 P. m. 83 5 and As will be seen by the telegrams on the first page of this paper a terrible accident occurred on the C, R. I. & P. road, near Altoona, Iowa, 8 miles east of- DesMoises, and 168 miles west of this'city this morning The particulars of the accidfnt, received by private telegrams, are very meagre,but rom tnem it appears that the evening passenger train from Chicago, last evening, was thrown from the track three miles west of Altoona, by the washing out of a bridge and lengthy trestle work, and the whole train, with the exception of the sleep er was thrown down into aiaging torrent caused by heavy rains during the night, The unfortunate passengers were either killed outright or were drowned and many were wounded, The train from the west, which should have been here this morning, had a nar row escape from running into the same death trap. It crossed a bridge two miles and a half west of where the accident occurred, and within half an hour after ward this bridge was also washed out and the train is now between the two wrecks. As soon as news of the accident reached Davenport, Supt. Kimball procured special train, and summoning Dr. Peck, the company's physician, and several other physicians, started for the scene. Among the injured reported by the telegraph, who live iu this vicinity, are Mrs. Emma Babcock, a school teacher, of this city; Mrs. MellC.Follett.of Moline.and J. S. Ferguson, of Andulusia.

Fourteen men are at work on the 27th street ditch. In the present condition of the city's finances the work there is wholly unnecessary and should be stopped especially as the ownership ot that street is in litigation, between the city and Ana wait, Denkman & Co.; although the im provement is badly needed. , "Heaven tempers the wind to the blown lamb like me," said a philosophic young lady cne blustering day last week: "the same gust that blows ones's skirt around so fearfully, blows dust into the eyes of the young men who stand on the street corners, and, anyhow, my feet Mid ankles are good."

ZThe Union this morning, gives the population of the city at 6,409 the ficures of H. L, Bullen's census report. As tbe report docs, not include a large portion of District ISo. 1, township 1, it can hardly be called a fair estimate, as with the omitted population, included, the increase would be probably 1,000 additional. But then, it is about as near correct as the Union generally is. No one can develop the grace of meek ness by listening to a crying Baby.

Some of the ware is very heavy and is valued in some cases as high as $GoO for a single niece, those who have never seen a dis play of fine solid ware, or those desiring to purchase will do well to call on Epstein who guarantees prices which cannot be duplicated in the three cities.
