one at Ningara Fulls writes a. follow, in a
letter to tlio Butlalo Courier:
"Ilwasmy good fortune to witnes., one
day atc week, a viglit such a. i. not often

of .olid rock iirto the river below. Ou the
point where we are at work, (upon the Lew
iston Railroad,) a monster rock, weighiiif; n.
uear as I can calculate about two hundred
tons, projected out from the perpendicular
ledgo on which we were at work, with seem
ingly no support under it, but lieltl only by
the earth, roots, Sio., on top, and connecting
it with the main batik On removing this
earth a seam was discovered, and the rock
began to manifest nneusinei-s, fueling as
much . a rock could feel, agitation at the
prospect beforo it. The scam gradually o
pened, little patches of earth dispnuaged
themselves, and tho word .oon spread tha
the big rock was about to take a leap Into
the foaming caldron below. Quite a con
course of visiters gathered on the bank a-,
bove, and the men ran from their work, aome
in fear and trembling, to the top of tho
bank, 150 feet above, to be sure to be onto!
the way. At length the monster ;g.ive
sign, 'of acute internal, distress: th trees
which stood upon it Degan to nou goou-uyc,
the scam-rent and the rock fell, tlu full
therefore beinggreat.' Away it went, jump
ing, crashing, and tearing everyining uliuiu
it, two hundred feet down to the river below.
The tall trees in it. course snapped like
nine-steins. But when it reached the river
n most magnificent spectacle was presented.
There rose, like a great water giant, a white
column of epray and mist a nunareu leei
hiirh incredible as. it may seem, those who
witnessed it will attest that it rose to one
third the hfight of the chasm and spread
round in fulling a distance of from t wo to
three hundred feet, and moraysor uie sun
striking it formed a perfect r innow. It was
certainty the grandest sight of the kind I
ever witnessed, and worth a journey to. see.
It impresses one vividly with a pretty tangi
ble idea of the effects of an accumulation of
power." : -: ; '' .
