Buffalo Commercial says that as two gentlemen
crossing" tho Suspension Bridge at Niagara Falls,
were approaching the Canada sido, tliey heard a
noise like the falling of a heavy body over tho
precipice a few rods above tho bridge, and immedi
ately observed a little girl ran towards the bridge
and passing by some men who stood near, commence
descending the precipico by a sort of ladder formed
of pins driven into an upright pole, reaching some
eighty or ninety feet down tho clifl'to a recess in
the rocks. When she arrived at the foot of tho
ladder, she climbed rapidly along tho side of the
hill under tho overhanging rocks to a spot under
the place from which she had started from above ;
and was seen trying to raise and carry some object,
which soon proved to be another little girl, her sis-
ter, 0Q7 or 8 years, who had fallen over the preci-
pico to a distance of over liiu leet upon mo m-ouen
rocks below ! Aid was instantly sent down to her,
and her little sister was brought up, lashed to a

of all, alive and likely to recover.

From tho National Intelligencer.
Tho Hon. Daniel Duncan, a Whig mem
ber of Congress from Ohio, who has just been
nominated to Congress by a very strong vote,
has published a very able address to his con
stituents, giving his reasons for supporting
General Taylor. We make the following
extract in regard to the personal character
of Gen. Taylor:
" I have devoted some tiino, since the nom
ination, to an investigation of the character
and opinions of Gen. Taylor, and I have
eome to the conclusion that he is every way
worthy of tho support of tho Whig party.
"I have traced him from tho earliest -records
of his history. I find that a strong love
of justice, and a deep regard for liberty al
ways characterized his conduct. I find him
temperate, laborious, frugal, simple, and plain
in all his tastes, and ready at all times to
sacrifice self to secure the comfort of his fcl-
1 - l,f tmLiuit'u 'I'hmKTb lita lif'n lina l.m... .in
voted to arms, I fiml him drawing his sword '
only at tho biililinpr of his Government, and
always temnurins tlio storn necessities of war
with tlio more glorious attributes of benevo-
lence nnd mercy. YV'hon tho heat of tho
battle was over, no wife was mndo a widow,
no children fatherless, by any act of his. No
court martial followed in tho train of his
brilliant career; Ma hand never siened a death
warrant. When he surveyed tlie fields of
his glory, the sternness of the warrior yield-
' .j to tho noblo impulsos of the man, and you
' find him with a heart tender as that of a child,
j overflowing at the sight of human misery.
If there is one feature in his character more
j strongly marked than another, it is a high
and stern regard for law and justice. In
all the leading traits of bis character, there is
tn that nf WaRIIIVH-
- tQX rflQ on(J hft9 cvijently Ee,.vcd as a
, model for the other. Their characters wore
formed under very similar circumstances,
j Both entered the army while young men,

frontiers, warring against savages. There is

character than this. His energies are kept
constantly awake by thosleepless activity of
' the foe with which ho is contending. Even

Perilous Exploit. Thousands of wise
men and women at St. Louis witnessed the
feat of a man in that city who climbed up a

would haul the pole vp after him ! Xal. Int.

dicine It is not only
idle, but impudent, to
flaunt such a doctrine in the face of nn intelligent
community. It is contrary to the very first princi
ples of common sense.
The Graefenbcrg Series commoncc with tho
GRAEFENHERG VEGETABLE TILLS.
The History oftho Graefenbcrg Vegetable Pill is
briefly as follows :
The inventor, after moro than a quarter nf a cen
tury's investigation of this subject, was led to tho
discovery by reflecting upon tho following Laws of
OS?" There aro three principle avenues by which
Naturo expels from the body what is necessary
should be expelled therefrom. Theso three aro tho
Stool, the Urine, and the Pores. Theso MUST bti
kept in n healthy condition or disease is certain.
THIS IS A FIXED AND POSITIVE LAW: and
no human being enn Bafely disregard it. In addi
tion to this, the Liver must be kept in order. Tho
liver is the largest organ in the body, and has somo
of tho most important functions to fulfil. It regu
lates tho Bile, and consequently the digestion and
the bowels.. The stomach must be invigorated and
made healthy.' Added to all this, the strength and
tone of t!:S system must bo kept up by proper nour
isluiient; exercise, aud rest.
Theso arc plain and simple laws; and hcn they
all work harmoniously, a person is in sound health'.
This position will not' bo questioned.
Qy JVoio u7ict die System it Itiiemcil, it WQit
feat rrund Meet to kI all these Functions at tcork,
'both to expel Disease andrestere the Health. 0
Tho bowels must bo opened, cleansed, soothed,
nnd strengthened; the urino must be made to flow
healthfuilv and naturally, and to throw 01T the im
purities of tho blood ; tlie liver and stomach niut
be regulated : and above all, tbi
must bo opened, and the skin made healthy. Theso!
things done, and nature will go to her work ; ari't
ruddy health will sit smiling upon the cheek; Hint
life will be again a luxury.
Wo will suppose the case of n person afflicted with
a bilious complaint. His head aches, his appetite U
poor, his bones nnd back ache, he is weak and nor
vou', his complexion is yellow, skin drr, and his
tongue furred. lie goes to a doctor for relief, aud is
given a dose of medicine to lTitciK him freely. Ho
takes it and it operates profusely, and he gets Fr.mo
temporary relief. Ki;t he is "hot cl-uim) ! In a
few days tho same symptoms return, and tho saino
old i-i iifiK is administered ; and so on, until tho
poor man becomes a martyr to heavy, drastic purj
gatives. Jow, w hat would be tlio
in such a case? What tho practieo that nnturo
herself points out ? Why, to set in healthy oiiern
tion all the means that Nature possesses to throw
out of tho sy item tho causes of disease. T lie how
els must of "coi.rse be evacuated, but the work is but
begun at this ttngo of the business. The kidncv.i
must bo prompted to do: the stomach must Fie
cleansed : and above all,' tho pores must tie relievo,!
and ennbled to throw off the secretion which ought
to pass off through them. . ., v
Theso things the Graefenbcrg Vegetable Pills
will accomplish. They will cleanse and invigorato
the stomach: freoly purge tho bowels: open tha
pores : give a pleasant temperature and tono to th
skin, and do all this in tlie gentlest manner, without
doing violence to tho svstom.
Tho simple doctrines nre tho great nnd philoso
phical foundation of tho Griielenberg Vegetable
l'iils, and are in perfect accordance with the opin ;
ions of the most eminent medical men.
What says tho celebrated English Physician
" It is man's method," ho sitvs , " to endeavor to
effect great ends by multiplied und extra measures,
but God, both as the God of natnro and grace, sc .
coinplishes mightv ends bv few and simple means."
