of the Orent Prom ilir NEW By the time this comes before your a notable step will been taken in the progress of our bridge to Both of the enormous being at last completed and the last injunction against its continuance the first of the week will witness the spinning of the first threads across tlie from one dizzy height to the and from hat point the work will go rapidly forward to Some of tho grandeur of this enterprise may be from n few was commenced in Jan so that the laying of the foundation and building the piers alone has been the work of over five Tho foundations rest on the solid rock 78 feet below high water A description of the laying of these foundations would in itself make a interesting and sinking of the great weighing tons the condition of the workmen work ng away the air sufficiently condensed to hold back the mud and water and consequently so dense as to almost intoxicate those who breathed and to make the blaze with dangerous fierce and many other details would possess great but forbids more than a mention of the salient The bridge jeing a suspension the strain comes entirely upon tlie anchorages on either side and the two These anchorages are great in asses of masonry bolted together and to a leavy foundation with heavy iron Jars and clamps running in To will be fastened tlie ends of the four main cables which are to bear the weight of the These cables seem to the most stupendous feature of the whole Each one will fifteen and one half inches in and will be composed of small steel to Perhaps it may strike some reader that such a cable will bo pretty Let us The wire to be used weighs one pound for every four teen feet in and as there are to be strands in each every fourteen feet will weigh or 450 pounds to tho as the distance between the anchorages is or more than twice the distance between the a cable reaching straight across from utie to tlie would weigh about 1 But as they have got to be longer to go up the and as there them instead of the total weight will be pounds or But how are such masses of metal to bu put up over the towers That I would be apt to bother any one of us if we had the matter in but the obviates this serious difficulty by arranging to take the small strands one by and make the cables in their It is as when you know as to Columbus friends to make an egg stand on end after ho had done it for them but it isnt every could have suggested the The which have thus far been the only visible evidence of now tower aloft in grand complete looking like the opposing fronts of two the double roadway openings in each standing for Gothic the river to the topmost piece of iron work is 275 and the structures them selves are about 50x150 feet at the tapering slightly toward the The roadways will be 135 above high water To stand ut the bottom of one of these giant piles and look upward will make giddy but the steadiest From this position the top seems actually to pierce the The staging upon which the workmen travel up and down its end less sides narrow down to a point in the vase and the work men when they can be discerned at look like wo of the earth appear to On the top of each avo the as the grooved irons are called on which the big cables These saddles nrc in proportion to the rest of the weighing thirteen tons They have got to have some solidity to sustain the weigh which will rest on their when all is a weight estimated at onehalf of which will be the bridge proper or part between tho The wires which aro now about to be thrown across will be light ones used only for drawing over the smal Cables that arc to support foot bridge for t their stretching will be an inter esting as being the first act of he final section of the Three years from the day on which that if all goes the bridge will be ready for the crowding travel which will thenceforward possess The cost of this magnificent bond of union between the two great cities which are possibly through ts to become ultimately was originally estimated to be eleven and a half including he value of the land to be condemned or the Up to the first of this very nearly six millions had been and either tower was So new then allowing over a million and a half more than the original and 5s will not have to be further To reach the height of the road way at the waters edge by a sufficiently easy ascent it was found necessary to jo back half a mile on the New York side and more than onethird of a milo in Brooklyn to commence build the By this means he declivity on either side will be made so gentle as to present no obstacle to the passage of teams or lorse It will be a gala day for Brooklyn when this bridge is To show of what importance she considers it need only be stated that pays twothirds of the against New Yorks The present system of ferriage is uncertain and really dangerous in and at all times s so objectionable to many people as o deter them from making Brooklyn their The new avenue of communication will remove that ob and will repay the city its share of the expense many times MONTHLY NEW YORK FASHION 11Y MADAME YOKK My fair readers will oblige mo by interpreting the above caption
