Quebec, March 2-- On Saturday last, about eight o'clock in the morning, as a number of workmen were employed on a stage erected under the bridge built over the Chaudere, in the Parish of Ste. Marie, Nouvelle Beauce, a considerable portion of the bridge gave way and came down with a terrible crash, instantly killing one man, named Luke Murphy; another, John Dunn, survived the accident only an hour and a half; two others named Keble Parker and John Slaven, were dangerously bruised and not expected to live... Only one of the sufferers is married; we have not heard whether he left any children... We have since learned that of the three unfortunate men who survived, two have died.
