At four of clock this morning during a terrific storm a passenger train on the Chicago Rock Island amp Pacific Railroad was precipitated into Little four mile Creek nine Miles East of this City Twenty persons being killed and some thirty wounded. The Accident was caused by the washing away of a Bridge. Little four mile Creek is a Little Stream generally quiet and never before known to be As High it was made by the unprecedented Rains of yesterday morning and the night before. The Bridge rested on a Stone Arch twelve feet in the Clear by Walls five feet thick. The Bridge is approached from the East round a curve and Down a Grade. It is thought the rails were left standing alone As the train approached and the Engineer who slackened his Speed till he came in sight of the Bridge supposing that All was right dashed upon it. The Channel of the Stream was forty or fifty feet wide and the Banks about Twenty feet High. The locomotive landed at the foot of the Western Side and half buried itself in the Earth. Barnum a show car was next to the engine. It dropped into the Channel. The baggage and mail car followed passed directly Over mashing it to pieces but going to the Bottom a bar of Iron running Clear through it. The men in that car escaped alive even the lamps were not put out at first. A passenger car pitched head Down into the Channel a lure the water was at least fifteen feet deep. The next car was plunged upon this telescoping with it and the next telescoped one half through both of the two preceding it. The sleeping car did not go into the wreck. The occupants were jarred but none of them seriously Hurt. The most killed were in the car in front of the Sleeper. The scene at the time of the Accident is described As terrific. Rain was falling in torrents accompanied by wind lightning and violent Thunder a crash put out the lights and a scene of terror ensued. The men who were not injured and could get out went to work at once to Rescue the dying and wounded. They had to go a mile to a farm House and get axes to chop them out but they worked heroically and by Daylight had most of the wounded rescued. There were Many pitiful scenes and tender incidents.

A correspondent explains that Chipka pass consists merely of a Section of the Balkans lower than the surrounding Heights. There is no pass properly so called but merely a track Over this lower Section or Ridge which is extremely broken and Hilly. The highest Point of the Road is flanked on either Side by a Spur commanding it and also a Ridge behind the first of these two spurs covers the Road leading to the russian positions. These spurs break off abruptly and precipitously affording no Access into the valleys North of the Balkans. Their sole use to the turks therefore was in affording positions from whence to flank the Central Chipka Ridge. It is possible also for the troops to descend from them struggle through the intervening Glens and climbing the Steep slopes of Chipka Ridge give a hand to each other on the Road which runs along its Summit. This done the Chipka position would of course be turned but the advantage would be of Little Avail till the Road had been opened by carrying the fortified positions on it. The Road Over the Chipka Ridge constitutes for the army the Only practicable line of communication in that Section of the Balkans. A great rattle in Alda minor. London aug. 26.

A daily news correspondent telegraphing from the Chipka pass gives a detailed account of the russian attempt to capture the redoubt which the turks constructed to sweep the Road in the russian rear. This redoubt is still unt Aken and it constitutes great danger to the russians As it gives the turks Possession of a Ridge running parallel to that up which the Road winds 1,500 Yards Distant. The redoubt Enfil Ades the Road in several places and the turkish infantry have been extending along this Ridge which is thickly wooded and an practically Render the Road impassable. It was on this Road that Gen. Dragoni Eroff was wounded and that today Gen. Dravetsky was killed at a Point fully nine Miles on one Side of the Summit of the pass. Men Are picked off by turkish skirmishers two Miles behind the pass. It will be seen therefore that the russian position still remains most critical in spite of reinforcements. Gen. Radetzky attacked the turkish redoubt from the direction of the pass and also from the Garrova Side. There was a continuous musketry and artillery fire for hours. The russians had advanced under cover of the Trees which however were too Small to afford Good shelter. In a Short time they arrived within fifty Yards of the redoubt. Here they found that the turks had Cut Down the Trees around the redoubt making a Barrier Over which it was almost impossible to pass. They gathered around the Edge and suddenly made a Rush for it but were driven Back with fearful loss. The soldiers became entangled in the masses of Brushwood and trunks and limbs of Trees Over which they were obliged to scramble while the turks poured in a terrible fire upon them. At this Short distance it mowed them Down like grass. Of the first assault against the redoubt in which one company was engaged very few got Back to Tell the tale. Gen. Radetzky sent reinforcements and the attack began again but dispositions were made to place a Large Force in such positions that it could pour a heavy fire into the redoubt to cover the assault until the assailants were almost up to the parapet. This attack seemed almost on the Point of Success for the colonel in this religion being for most of the time practically the a a Church itself. The Church had already been started Asah organization in Manchester n. Y., and in 1831 removed with All its members to Kirtland Ohio under the leadership of Joseph Smith. At the period of Youngs ascension the government of the Church consisted of a presidency of which Smith Higdon and Frederick g. Williams were the incumbents. His talents and shrewdness speedily made him prominent and in february 1835, a further step in the organization was made by the institution of the twelve apostles and he was ordained one of the twelve and sent Forth with the other apostles. His Field of labor was the Eastern states and he was signally successful in making converts. In 1836 a Large and costly Temple which had been for three years in process of building was consecrated at Kirtland and in 1837 Orson Hyde acid Heber c. Kimball were sent As missionaries to England. In 1838, the Bank at Kirtland having failed Smith and Rigdon fled to Misson in the night hotly pursued by their creditors. The prophets were soon surrounded by the faithful in Missouri and the Colony throne Quot for a while notwithstanding the enmity of the missourians. This broke out at last in a fierce contest and the saints to the number of 15,000 took Refuge in Illinois. The town of Nauvoo was started under a charter from the legislature of Illinois. When the revelation of celestial marriage became Public a great Deal of indignation was Felt even in Nauvoo and serious disturbances took place the result of which was that Smith and his brother Hyrum were thrown into prison at Carthage 111., where they were murdered by a mob june 27, 1844. Smiths death caused great agitation and confusion among his followers but the Council of the twelve apostles unanimously elected Brigham Young and from that Day to the Day of his death the history of Brigham Young and the history of mormonism Are one. In 1845 the legislature of Illinois revoked the charter of Nauvoo and the saints determined to emigrate beyond the Rocky mountains. In february 1846, the first emigrants crossed the ice bound Mississippi stopped awhile in Iowa and then marched under strict discipline across the great wilderness. Brigham Young arrived in the Salt Lake Valley july 24, 1847, and the main body of the mormons in the fall of 1848. Salt Lake City was soon founded an emigration fund established and settlers poured in from All Over the world. In 1850 the government admitted the new territory under the name of Utah and commissioned Brigham Young As governor and Indian agent. District judges were also appointed by the Federal authority but these wore regarded with great dislike by the president of the Church and the saints generally and were finally driven out of the country in 1851. Brigham Young was now suspended from his office of governor and col. Steptoe appointed in his Stead. He arrived in Utah in 1854, but found it prudent to withdraw from the country. The mormon president said boldly at this time a i am and will be governor and no Power can hinder me until the lord Al 0hi0 news item8. A Washington d.

Of inflammation of the bowels was born in Vermont june 1,1801. His father was a Small Farmer and Brigham enjoyed very few advantages in the Way of education. While yet quite a boy he was apprenticed and Learned the Trade of Painter and Glazier. During his Early youth he developed Strong religious proclivities and United with the Baptist Church and it is even said occasionally preached about the country As he travelled working at his Trade. In 1832 he was ordained an elder of the a a Church of Jesus Christ of latter Day saints a having been converted to the mormon Faith a Short time previously and began his Peculiar and celebrated career As a preacher in the mormon settlement at Kirtland Ohio. Since that time he has been closely identified with the Rise spread and Interior history of mighty says a Brigham you need not be governor any a during the ensuing year collisions Between the Church and Federal officials became so frequent that the whole of the latter were forced to leave the territory. A new governor Alfred Cumming was appointed in 1857, As also a new superintendent of Indian affairs besides a Force of 2,500 was sent under Gen. Harney to enforce obedience to the National Laws. Brigham Young attacked the Supply trains and forced the expedition to Winter at some distance from Salt Lake. Early next year negotiations were had Aud the mormons submitted to the Federal authority. A nominal regard for the supreme authority of the general government has been maintained Ever since the time alluded to but there was and is but one Law or authority recognized by the mormons and that is the Church through its Hierarchy.

Kimball with twelve apostles and two bodies of the Priesthood but while the doctrines of the Church give these some authority As a matter of fact everything and everybody Over the length and breadth of the great territory of Utah has bowed to the Iron will of Brigham Young. There Are Many dark and bloody pages in the history of the mormon occupation of Utah the most terrible and notorious of the list being the Mountain Meadow massacre for which John d. Lee suffered death but a Little while ago. The general history of that deed is so fresh in the minds of the people that it is unnecessary to speak of the details beyond the implication of Brigham Young in the crime. It is More than probable that had Brigham lived the onus of that massacre would have been fixed upon him legally even As he has borne it morally for Many years. Evidence in the hands of the authorities is said to fix upon him beyond a peradventure the instigation of the whole fiendish Job and there has been a growing determination on the part of the government lately to bring him to Justice. Yet despite All that is charged against him there is a Side to the late prophets character which demands some attention. He found the greater part of the country occupied by his people As a wilderness without rain without verdure. He introduced a comprehensive system of irrigation which has changed that wilderness for the most part to a Garden. The Public works of his capital Are creditable and the natural Prosperity of the mormons As a Community is not Only wonderful in itself but still More wonderful in that it is so much due to this one Many a perseverance ability and unconquerable will.
