From the Southern Confederacy (Atlanta, Ga.)
June 2, 1863
{Mobile & Great} Northern Railroad
   As the Southward bound passenger train was passing over the bridge across the Perdido River last night, the bridge gave way, and then out of eleven cars on the train went down. We wait with painful anxiety the details of the sad accident. Mr. Palmer, Agent at Pollard, had heard no particulars at the time he telegraphed.
   Perdido River is a small stream where it is crossed by the railroad, and is about 25 miles Southwest of Pollard, and nearly equal distance from Pollard and Tensas.
