Catabact House, Niagara Falls, Aug. II.
Your correspoodeDt, chancing to lie over
at this pla?e yesterday afternoon, was among
the spectators at tlie performance of Leslie,
the compeff)'.of Blondin in the foolhardy
feat of rnikriifJttiillierrrver below Suspension
Bridge on a tight rope. It came very near
being the last of Leslio's exhibitions in that
line, or rather on that line. He has, it
seems, arrangements with the hotel keepers
and other parties interested in Niagara
crowds, to give a series of these entertain
ments, and in audition receives the gate
money for admission to the enolosures at
the ends of the rope, on either bank, which
gives the best views of tlie performance.
Un this occasion Leslie came down to the
scene of operations about four o'clock in a
carriage, accompanied as usual by his wife
and child. The former, if bIio leels anxie
ty, has the skill to dissemble it, and publicly
dismisses her spouse forth to his narrow
lina cf business with an easy smile. Lcslia
is Irish, and quite a hero with his Celtio
friends. He varies Ijlondiri's funis with
considerable ingenuity, and really manages
to combine quite a satisfactory umount cf
blood curdling features for the delectation
lie fust wtnt rapidly out upon the rope
with only his balancing pole and displayed
Wonderful agility and strength in the deli
cacy of poise and ease witli which he went
through I he more common roles of the rope
walking fraternity. He hung by one hand,
by ono leg, he did everything but hang by
his eyelids, and cair.e so near this, that it
would have scarcely added lo the entertain
ment had he doni) so.
Then he went Lock up the curve of the
rope to the bank, and after a temporary
disanpearance came forth with his feet in
peach baskets. Literally so, for each foot
was strapped Irmly to the bottom ol a coin
mon splint peach basket, which rose about
his calves like the wide boots of the cava
liers. Thus shod he set off on his journey.
It was a slow and painful one. The spec
tators, about t thousand in number, held
their breath as he made his deliberate and
eareful progress, swinging his legs in wide
circles to carry forward his novel foot gear.
Once in the middle of the rope he hit one
basket with (lie other and a thrill ran through
the spectators at the evident sheck it gave
him. He however crossed in safely, aud a
tremendous cheer rose from either shore.
Much fatigued by the strain on nervo and
muscle, he waited for quite an interval be
fore introducing his third act. In this he
came on with three pails of water, which he
was to carry over the river without spill
ing. One was held in a tin case fitted to
his head like a cap. The others were fast
ened over his hands by straps; and so he set
out carrying lus natancing pole. lie nad,
however, overrated his strength, so his
riends gay, who blame him for not declining
a further test of skill on that day. He
moved steadily down the rope, but with
less lightness and confidence in his motions
than formerly. lie had proceeded half way
across the river, and just commenced tne
ascent of the wide curve of the rope, when
uddenly he became unsteady, attempted in
vain to save himself, and fell from the rope.
Th epails went down sheer two hundred
reel into the swift rush of waters hastening
to the whirlpool. The spectators closed
their eyes in horror. It was believed im
possible that the man was not lost, but in
falling he caught by one hand, and so hung.
It was not a triok of the rope-walker to
lend fresh zest to his performance. He
caught at the rope back-handed, aud arrest
ed his fall violently at arm's length. It
was with diuieully he reached the rope
with his other hand, and still more difficult
was it for him to draw himself upon the
rope. Indeed it seemed doubtful for many
painful seconds that seemed like minutes,
whether he could regain the top of the
rope. His struggles were watched with
silence, but with everywhere-apparent
apprehensiun that it was a struggle of life
or death. Ut hung by one leg and
both hands for a still longer period until by
a violent exetlion he threw himself across
the rope. He then sat for at least ten min
utes on the rope until he recovered a utile
froiu the cllccts ol the fearful expose, and
mado his way to shore, omitting the rest of
the performance and being rapidly driven
away in a close carriage. The alarm among
his friends was mt ense, though they
presently so nearly recovered as to indulge
in ghastly - jokes at Leslie sell. It was
evident, however, that it came near being a
fatal end lo a rash career, aud it is not be
lieved Leslie's physical condition will
enable him to resume his feats at present
There were present only about ono thousand
persons, the attractions having lust the)
sharpness. Perhaps this fresh hint of its
deadly ana imminent peril will revive the at
tendance of those who go to such scenes with
the inner conviction, which is neither th
wish nor the hope, that they may on some
of these scenes, be "in at the death," as
those who still live to tell ot Sam Putch's
last leap. The whole business, of which
Leslie and Iilondin are the leaders, is de
basing and inhuman, and perhaps will only
be checked as a favorite putiu of a certain
elans of people, by some suoh horror real
ized as that which so nearly overtook Leslie.
During the last four years of sad trial
and tribulation to the people of the Southern
border States, those of this state have come
in for a considerable share of the evil results
of intestine strife. Our people have drank
of the bitter cup to its very dregs. Large
and fertile farms have gone to wreck, and
in many instances the entire fencing de
stroyed, and lands which years ago annually
teamed with heavy crops, to-day are in the
commons. This, however, is the legitimate
result of war, especially such as has eursed
the border States. For the last four years
we have had an unprecedented commotion
and strife. The passions and prejudices of
the people have been worked up to the
most intense feelings of animosity. We
will not enter into a recapitulation of the
sullenngs, hardships, and motirnlal lnci
dents of the war. Thej will long be re
membered, and huvo been, we trust,
sufficient to deter men, for ages to come
against the overthrow of the Government
which dispensates its blessing upon all,
Cut, while we look upon the ruin and
desolation that have been mllicted tip'jn us
as a community, the rellccting mind finds
great deal to be cheerful over. We have
at least saved to us from this terrible scene
of desolation the priceless boon of a good
uovcrnmcnt, which will rrpay at no dm
tant day for all the sull'ering through which
vu havo gone, i he war has ended, nnd
what u'.l good citizens now desire U such a
pence os will give repose and security to
every member ol society.
Fighting is at an end, and the peoplo of
all shades oi political belief have turned
tl.e.r thoughts to industrial pursuits, cut
tivating their crops, running up houses and
rebuilding their fences. Slowly but surely
llio work ol reconstruction is going on
The Union soldiers hovo found their way
back to homes long deserted, and, contrary
to the oil repeated copperhead slander tha
trouble would follow the dii-bundmorit
tha large armies, the bnys of "blua" hav
engaged in tho work of reconstruction with
that amount of alacrity equally creditable to
them iu their heroic ellorls upon tho battle
field. And, bo it said to the credit of the
returned confederates, they too, havo gone
to work with the seeming determination to
bring out from the soil by dint of industry,
the wealth that is to restore, our State to
order and prosperity.
The signs of the times are encouraging.
All our people with one accord and alacrity
of spirit seem to be in earnest working for
the restoration of 'good times.' The people,
the honest, hardworking yeomanry of the
land, are actuated by that laudable spirit,
and the signs of discontent and a disposition
to fling broadcast the seeds of discord are
manifested by the few the political trick
sters and disappointed cilice seekers. Let
tho masses see to this, and all will bo well
the enforcement, indiscriminately, without
favor, partiality or partizan bias, of the
laws. In the enforcement of the laws every
citizen is directly and personally interested.
This will restore the confidence and fra
ternal social feelings that once existed. The
mosses have in their power all that is neces
sary for tho preservation of their welfare.
Let the people discountenance and frown
upon every indication of a lawless spirit
which may manifest itsslf. Let them brand
with infamy that man, or set of men, who
may seek or attempt to disturb the peace,
or incite and advise others to do so, as
enemies to society, end unworthy the re
peat and confidence of good men. Let
every good meaning citizen take tho law as
a ''lamp to his feet and a light to his path
way, and rely upon it our peace will be
permanent, business of every kind will
revive, expand, end improve, and soon our
country will have recovered from the de
vastations ot protracted war. Uur pros
perity and happiness as a people will be in
proportion to the progress we make in tho
cultivation of general good feelings and
mutual friendships. Saline Progress,

THE ERA OF CEIME.
Under the above title the Quincy Times
publishes the following :
It is not to be concealed that our country
has entered upon ani is yet to witness an
era of crime and immorality almost unpar
alleled in the history of the world, lhere
is scarcely a city of any size in the country
in which it is either prudent or sate tor a
man to risk himself at night in the public
streets. When he does so he is in danger
of being either robbed or murdered, and id
many cases ot being visited with both
While this is true of men, it is equally true
that in no city ot tho country, not even here
in Quincy, can a lady walk after dark from
her own front door to that of her nearest
neighbor, without running the risk of insult
and outrage, and but lew respectable
women have the oourage to attempt it
Women ol doubtlul reputations, potonou
cvpnans, however, promenade the street
in all our large cities from dark to midnight
with perfect impunity. 1 lie whole country
is fearfully, dtplorably demoralized, fho
who Dreueli for war preach for demoralized
society, degrading immorality end brutal
crime. The people of this country, from
one end of it lo tlie other, North, South
East and West, will yet deplore from thei
inmost souls the evils and dangers lh
have brought upon themselves. The:
evils are the penally which irrevocable fate
demands they shall pay, and tho punish

could have been avoided by iho people of
both sections, if thev hud mutually thow

They choose not to do id on either siae.
The Patterson (N.J.) Press gives tho
following account of a hero of two wars,
ho visited Patterson e few days ago. The
name of the veteran is Hicks, and in 1S12
he joined the army and served during the
ar with England. At the time cf peace
he laid down the musket, and for a half a
entury was engrged in peaceful pursuits.
At the commencement of the rebellion ho
resided in Illinois, near Galena, the home of
Gen. Grant. Although eighty years of aga
o joined a regiment of volunteers, and
inarched to tho war. Under Grant he took
part in the capture of Fort Henry and Fort
Donslson, and fought bravely in the
desperate battle of Shiloh. The aged pri
vate and tho youthful General served to
gether in the brilliant Western campaigns,
ill finally success crowned their efforts
The old man had been three times wounded
in this war, but now, the Press says, when
he has received his discharge he is appar
ently as strong and hearty as most of the
men of half his ago, and but for his snow
white hair, to see him stride along with his
firm military tread, no one would think
him a day over fifty. Hicks has a sister
iving in Sussex county, near Newton
whom he was going to see. Ha marched
from New York the night before, and
camped out during the night, his money
having been spent whilo in the hospital.
Yesterday morning he was purposing to
take up the line of march for his sister's
residence, thirty miles distant. Ssme
gentlemen falling in with him, attracted by
his appearance, draw from him his story,
the substance of which wo havo givcu
above. One cf them remarked that he should
have been something more than a private,
but tha old man said he had refused all
promotions, which had more than once
been offered him. The gentlemen interest,
cd themselves in his behalf, and in a few
moments had raised a fund of twenty dollars,
which they placed iu his possession. They
then put him in the stage for New York,
where he could take the cars for Newton.
