The wire suspension bridge across the Muskingum river at Dresden is, we learn so far completed as to be passed over by footmen, and will in a few days be in a condition to be crossed by teams. This is the first structure of the kind in Ohio, and speaks well for the enterprise of Dresden. This bridge in a business point of view, will be of great advantage to the town and the surrounding country. We shall have more to say on this subject hereafter.
