Colusa, Cal., March 10. The draw
bridge over the Sacramento river
lost a span, and one pier was badly
damaged by the collision of the
steamer Dover with It last evening.
The primary reason for the damage
being so great was the frailty of the
pier a wooden box structure, bal
lasted with rock, wltli a few Insuffi
cient binders of railroad iron.
The steamer was doing duty as a
tug, to pull away an Immense accu
mulation of drift that had lodged
against the pier and an enormous
redwood that had securely stuck
a shoal before tho high water came,
Tho butt of the redwood was dow
stream, and Its branches accumu
lated a veritable Island of debris
during the flood, and every pound of
weight wedged the butt more firmly
Into the shoal.
Shortly after tho steamer hooked
to the drift tho cable parted, with
out tho drift being perceptibly loos
ened, and the center of gravity and
point of leverage both shifting, near

swinging her sideways with the full
force of the current, against tho pier,
