Cause of the Bridge Disaster. Number of Persons Killed Now Estimated at >5—Wounded 3*. Chicago, May 6.—Tho following extracts from an extra published yesterday morning by the Sterling Mills Gazette, will give a clearer idea of the manner and direct cause of the Dixon bridge disaster than anything before re ceived : “The people were closely crowded on the :..— t_- __ __ _ side, was too much for tho briuge. One of tho cap stringers snapped assunderand allowed tho north section to sag from the abutment, plung ing into tho river with its living burden. Be tween the foot and wagouway was a net-work of iron braces about nine feet high, and this toppled over on the mass of humanity who had been thrown into the river, and by it men, wom en and children were pinioned beneath the wa ter, without power to help themselves and too firmly bound by the weight of the iron to be aided by their friends. It appears that the bridge was constructed in such a manner as to make each section depend on the other for sup port, and when the north section gave way the balance sagged between the piers, making a complete wreck of the structure. So far as known no fatal causalties occurred on any sec tion but the first, though several were severely injured by being crashed between the iron work.” Special despatches received here are filled with incidents attending on the fearful calami ty, but add little to the main facts already tele graphed. The number still known to be miss ing, added to those bodies recovered make tho list of killed 75; wounded 32. Dixon, 111 May G.—Efforts to raise tho spans of the fateful bridge have proved abor tive, the powerful machinery breaking the rot ten structure but not raising it sufficiently to allow the bodies that are supposed to be under the ruins to be recovered. Only one body, that of Mrs. C. W. Keluer, was recovered to day. There are still missing the following: Mrs. Nixon, Frank Hamilton. Allio Peters berger, Lizzie Mackay and child of Mrs. Hen drick. Six funerals occurred to-day. THE MODOC WAR. No Change in the Situation. San Fkancisco, May G.—A dispatch from Yreka, last night, says that at the camp at South Tulo Lake, May 3d,everything was quiet.

General Wheaton, Post Commander at Camp Warne, who was in command of the troops in the first fight with the Modocs, has been order ed to the front. The body of Lieutenant Lowe, killed in the fight of the 2Gth, arrived in San Francisco to-night. Propitious Change. Advices from Yreka state that Capt. Ber nard, of ihe 1st Cavalry, has been ordered to proceed to Camp Bidwell with his troop G and take command of that Post, relieving Lieut. Winters, who will join his troop in the field with all the available mounted men from Camp Bidwell, Warner and Harney. Lieut. Win ters has proved himself a good Indian figbtei while stationed at Tucson, Arizona, and at Camp Bowie. Fear* of an EebeIeeiee Umlipi-nt L. S. Dyar, Indian Agent of the Klamath Agency in Oregon, has made application to the military authorities at Fort Klamath, in that State, tor a detachment of troops to be station ed that place for the protection of the families of the employes and government property.— Whether ho fears an outbreak of tho Klam atb Indians or a raid of the Modocs on the res ervation is not stated. Tho settlers at Goose Lako and in Surprise and John Day Valleys are greatly alarmed, apprehending an outbreak of the several tribes of Piutcs ou the reserva tion in Southern Oregon. The Post Command er at South Bidwell considers that post unsafe, as it is defenceless. There is at present a great number of Piutes in Surprise Valley. .UETEOROLOGXCAL.

London, May G.— In the Hon se of Commons to-night Sir Charles Dyke moved a resolve that in the opinion of the House it is desirable to re dress the irregularities in the distribution of po litical power in the United Kingdom, He claimed that the legitimate influence was that large anil important towns were swamped by small aud decaying boroughs in which the power of a single individual was paramount over the constituency. Sir Charles continued at great length pointing out tho existiug anomal ies in the representation , aud concluded by de claring that the time of tinkering had gone by and a compltee aud thorough revision was the only remedy. Mr. George Anderson, member for Glasgow, seconded the motion. He showed that England was entitled to 490 instead of 493 members [in Parliament; Irelaud 89, and Scotland 7G instead of 60. There were eight constituencies with an j aggregate of 1,840 votes, which had the same icpicociibatjuu t\a cj;;ui utuera wuii Zoy.UUU votes. It was impossible to delay a redistribu tion any longer. Mr. Thomas Collins, member for Boston, op posed the motion because no method of redis tribution was set forth. He argued that the counties already had the advautage of |bor roughs. He opposed representation based on population because it wouid result in giving further power to a class already in unfair ma jority. Tbetrue representation was not one of numbers but of the various elements, interests and classes of the community. Mr. Gladstone acknowledged the force of the reasons on which the motion was based,but said he was unable to support it. He admit ted he was in favor of a redistribution of seats in Ireland, but even that was not urgent. The subject was full of difficulties and it was idle to approach it unless members were pre pared to deal with details. This was the last year of the present Parliament and there was no time to consider a question of such impor tance. Moreover, he believed the public did not demand such a measure at present. George Dixon,member for Birmingham,spoke in favor of the motion. He compared the cases of Birmingham, Liverpool, and Man chester, with those of several other villages, showing the glaring inequality which existed in the respective representation. A Proclamation. Paris, May G.—The idea of a formal procla mation at an early day of conservative Repub licans of the permanent form of government in Franco absorbs public attention everywhere.

Vienna, May 6.—The American exhibitors of the Exposition together with the honorary commissioners and several of the suspended commissioners, held an informal meeting yes terday at which searching inquiries were de manded into all charges made against suspend ed commissioners. The new commissioners suggested holding of another meeting at an early day, at which they could promise that John Jay, XT. S. Minister, and Baron Schwarz, the director general of the exhibition would be present. The American exhibitors have gone to work in an active manner to arrange their depart ment, and secure proper exhibition of their goods. The U. S. frigate Congress and a transport with goods for the exhibition have arrived at Trieste. The Khan Willing la Acecpt any Terms. St. Petersburg, May G.—[New York Her ald special.]—The Khan of Khiva has sent ambassadors to Russian post No. 1, at the mouth of the river Jaeksari es, with authority to annont, anv tprma Kanffmnnn thfl Rnaeiqn commander, may prescribe. Gen. Kauffmann has not seen these men as they went to the post by a different route from that by which tho Russians are advancing. Khirgliese, with this intelligence, have been sent from Rost No. 1, to overtake the column from Tasliland. The Khan’s disposition to come to terms will there fore be known by Kauffmann by May 1st. A favorable termination of the expedition may be looked for by the end of May. The Khan acting, it is reported,on English advice, has lib erated and sent to Post No. 1, twenty-one Rus sians, hitherto held as slaves in his-dominions Some of them have died since their arrival, from the horrible treatment they received while in slavery. Other Russians are known to be still in sla very at Orensburg. The column was moving from Ernlia to Kungrad by laud and water though very much embarrassed by excessive snow. It has probably reached its destination by this time. Dominion Parliament. Ottawa, May 6.—In the Dominion Parlia ment last night, Mr. Blnke moved an appoint ment of a committee to consider certain resolu tions for an address to Her Majesty, praying that she will be graciously pleased to direct that Canada shall be coasulted before any conces sion of her rights be made in future, and direct that steps may be taken as will in Her Majesty’s judgment be best calculated to procure from Congress for British subjects t Up free naviga tion of the Columbia River. He supported his motion at considerable length. Hon. Mr. Tnp per followed in a speech, which he concluded b.v moving an amendment that it is not to the advantage of the Dominion to re-open at this time the discussion on the various matters set tled by the Treaty of Washington. After a very long debate a division took place at mid night, when Blake’s motion was defeated by a majority of 25 and Tapper’s amendment was carried. MINOR TELEGRAMS.
