A BARK RUN INTO BY A LOCOMOTIVE. - The bark Bentley, in endeavoring to get into the slip at the Burlington and Quincy Railroad bridge, had to haul close up to the bridge with her jibboom projecting over to gain room. While in that position a locomotive whistled for the bridge, and notwithstanding the tender signalled to stop, it came thundering on, carrying away its smoke-stack, safety valve, and otherwise damaging the locomotive to the extent of a thousand dollars. The bark sustained no injury to speak of. - [Chicago Tribune, 5th.
