The new postoffice building now being erected in Moorhead, Minn., crumbled on the 18th inst., through the great weight of the material on top, and two men were buried in the debris. After fifteen minutes' lively digging the men were exhumed. One C. W. Hyper, is supposed to be but slightly injured; but the other, J. M. Nelson, is badly injured. He has a rib broken, and it is feared will die. The damage to the building is considerable.
