Speoial Cor. of the Chicago Journal. - ' Ci.iktok Hons, X Nuoaba Falls, August 15. f Something more than a mere ripple Btirs tbe Burlace OI tne summering iou erera and habitues af the vicinity of the great cataract. It hag been created by a story go startling and serious, and yet so well based that 1 avoid the ponderous porticos of phrase and paraphrase with which trained newsmonirers open the budircts of their commodity. I come at once to the subject, and give your read ers what some of them may term a ro mance, the idle tale of some mischievous guide, conceived to tickle the itching cars of tourists. But Uaptiste Williams is no such man. Visitors at the lanaua sine of the ercat cataract have for twenty-five years past known this, the most singular representative of tho peculiar parusitic class ot humanity the great cataract at taches to itsolt. Williams is a grave, taciturn man. with French and Indian blood in his veins, and bearing almost unimrjaired. amid the rush and bustle of this century, the same composition of spirit and nerve, energy Bnd coolness, that led the early movement of French Jesuits and men-at-arms among the wilds of New France two hundred years ago. Williams has been a solitary man for twelve vear and the occupant ot a soli' tary cabin not far from the river bank, midway between the Clifton llouso aiid tho springs, lie docs not press among strangers nor press his stories upon them. His quiet gray eyes never gleam expectant for " quarters. ' lie leaves all that to a crowd he desDises and with whom ho never minijles. The rabble of lousy fellows who annoy the visitors to me tana Willi uimr ieruuuuiy , w rear when the gray-coated, wiry little old man is seen to be in conversation with some fortunate tmrtT who are never weary with his quiet and well drawn funds of information. Such is Baptiste WilliiunH of whom Cooncr would have mado a true hero with Leather Stockings and Long Tom Cotlin. And now for what Williams hag to tell; and he is not responsible, let me say, for the statement in this torm. un tne contrary, news? paper and newspaper repi esentatives are Ins dread ana aoominauon. jnui-eu uu this very theme he is sore, for his theory, and ita sustaining facts, is not a new one. Many of your readers will remember some seasons ago that a report, . that al most immediately took rank with the Seneca lake snake marvel of the same season, had it run in tho paper, to the effect that the falls were undermined, and in a manner that might any year lirinir a decided catastronhe. In a Lock' port paper at that time full details were given, and Baptiste Williams name, greatly to his disgust, connected with the promulgation. It brought biro into a fierce eddy of ridicule and denial, and sent many up to his cabin to aK particu lars with a zeal that almost converted him into a hedge-hog for some seasons. One tliinir was noticeable, the old man stuck to the story, which gained its first flight among rumors, when the great took nlaee in the line of the Horse-Shoe Fall by the breaking down of a large area of the nrm Dut tnin ana illy-supported stone that forms the break and bed of the cataract. There are now apparent proofs the most incredulous cannot icnore, that what Williams at that time advanced as to the true condition of the cataract, are right, and jeering will not throw dust in the eyes ot science or even of common sense on this point. And first, what is the Niagara barrier but a vast dam con fining and retaining tho level of the wa ters of the vast inland sea that are vital to the climate and the commerce of the great heart of the continent. Without these it would be a desert waste, inac cessible and undesirable. And yet upon the wards of how slender a key hang the vast climatic influence that have so much to do with the destiny of untold millions. Are the indications true thnt the barrier set by the Almighty in the Niagara river, and which has in the wear of the slow centuries been receding up the stream, stodily wearing away its own tonure, has already begun to develop the beginning of the end? The reoords of this mighty retreat, this steady, im pairing conflict of water against walled rocks, are written on the tall page of the cliffs that for miles below the falls line the river. Is there a crisis at hand, liktiv to be realized within the period of 1 a few fut; JiOw'Mo of realization iu the tense tawu' ftT " dcveloD? is wiial ! liOVv mfmlt to nnn aider. Science long ago asserted that the re trocession of tha foils was duo to the friable and treacherous support of the overlying Niagara limestone, by the crumbling andloose shales that build up its foundation from beneath. The startling theory now forcing its truth upon careful observers i that through this loose Bnd friable mat the mighty current has now cut its wot from above the falls, at some point where the lime stone tuns or otters a break:. At tins point, three miles above Goat Island and nearer the Canada side, a whirling eddy, several seasons ago, began to muke its annearanre. inoroasing visibly each year, until it now at times prc&tint fea tures that bid fair to rival the other war vplu of this reirion. with the dismal sug gestion of doom, indeed, for some of them. This whirlpool, which I visited two days ago with Williams, gazing upon it with awe from tbe nearest adjacent bank, already present vaxt dimensions, and receives, evidently, no inconsider able share of tha volume of the river. Nor is it alone by watching the wild swirl of the seething waters that thi is discemablo, foraacb year ha diminished the available accessible points of inte rest under the sheet, proviug that a rag ing torrent, wun mconceivaoie powrr ina Volume, is pouring ovueuiu iud mm from the river above. I am myself not so unskilled by virtue of lrequent visit to the wonders behind the mighty cur tain of the cataract, that I fail to see that thi change baa taken place, and aa the face of the wall i torn away below, the thin inperincnmbent rook fall, piecemeal from above so rapidly that even the dullest otaervero are startled to see the line of the break of the waters so startlincly receding. Grant thai it i true that from the LARGEST CITY CIRCULATION.' ' ;Ji s ' ii 1 SATURDAY EVENING, AUGUST 0, 1870. whirlpool above a vast torrent has cut Its war down a shorter slope through the bed of tho Niagara, and this seems unde niable, how long can this wear and wash go on without bringing its results to end, where no man can say? A few facts a to the actuality and distinctness of the torrent. 1 At Chippewa, the great lumber mill of the Dalrymple Brothers, at the foot of Spencer street, occupies a large dockage front. They are large dealer in lumber. By the giving way uf an overloaded pier one night early in May, Inst, many thousand stave bolts were thrown into the stream. These staves floated in a mass directly down into the new whirlpool and were seen in a clashing multitude the next day whirl ing and swinging in circles gradually narrowing to the "suck." These staves came out below the falls, and Williams and others who hold this theory of the now ' subterranean channel, watched them in this precise view, and too care, fully not to be able to assert thnt they did not ifo oner the falh. Now, if all this be true, what is to come of it? To the point where Niagara river shallows into angry rapids, it is of great j nu. - . l 1- . l.l ueptu. . I ue catarHL-t is a uiuunu uttiu If it is now, indeed, assaulted by treacherous and irresistible agency of dc struction. who' can estimate its possible, not to say its inevitable, effect. With the barrier torn away and the rent chan nel of Niaeara left a ragged and dis ruptcd water-way, what must result but that the level of the lakes must be ef fected, to the exact and perilous extent foreshadowed. Iower Lake fcne sixty feet, what becomes of Buffalo, Cleveland and their Lake Erie swter cities. I have not at hand the data of soundings on the trreut lakes, and have only; the inlorma tion of an intelligent captain, who, with all tbe stout incredulity ol his class, scouts the whole idea, but gives me enough of shore soundings to assure me that all lake cities will be lclt irom ten to fifteen miles inland by any such drain of the lakes as that too distinctly fore shadowed in what I have written. At Chicago last year I heard something about otie of your railroad companies grasping at the lake Iront. , How would tins chance ettcct their riprarian bdidi tion. and. on the whole, where would your lake tunnol be? But the subject is too crave for levity, . 1 et is it to be asserted that there are no further vast changes to go on upon the surface of this earth of ours, scored all over as it ia with the proofs of mighty vicissitudes that have been the conflict of ages? How many places does the eye of science, not to say tho mere casual observer, discover in the conformations of the level meads and their outlying in closing slopes, the record of some lake or sea ages ago inclosed that the dry end might appear? In how many places can the geologist actually locate the mined gateway in , the creviced hills or torn cliffs that were unlocked when the flood went forth? Is there anything in the possible disruption of this mighty barrier f . 1. V !nnnn.!,lant w!U III ,UV iiiunin iutuiininici .til,. the agencies that have been shaping the earth? ,, . I am glad that the facts I have thus crudely noted are now being studied by eyes more skillful than my own. There are among the guests at the Ulilton, Ur. Arthur Sheton Mackway, professor of physic,' in the' Nassau University at Montreal, and the distinguised 1 rot. John Williams Frisbie, F. It. 8., of the Glasgow school of lechnology, the latter of whom, I feel sure, your citizens in at tendance UDon the sessions of the Ameri can association for the advancement of science in your city will remember. Both are deeply erudite men, and in a position to make their researches valuable. They contemplate, I believe, arranging for the construction ot a large number ol wood en and iron floats sufliciently marked in color and character to serve the purpose of testing a direct connection between the whirlpool and the river below the falls. . Their preparations are already marvel among the - gossips. A Buffalo journalistic wiseucre the other day announced them as a new description of torpedo, which indeed some of them resemble.. Baptiste Williams and a select crew go up the river in a few days to launch the floats and give them a direction toward the whirlpool, while . keen eyes will watch the river surface above and below the cataract, and the world will hear the re sult, though it is likely a scientific com mission from the United States and Canada will be called into existence at some stage in the investigation. --. -4r Ji nius. The Chicago Journal, in which the above appears, say. . For light summer reading we com mend to our roaders our letter from Niagara Falls in this issue, with the strict injunction, however, that they do not believe one word ot it, either a to personnel or position."

Prom the Vall-jo (Cal.) Chronicl..J Sometime yesterday afternoon Dove Griflith, one of the quartermen employed on Mare J aland, baa oceamon to era lmfR in a gmall skiff to recover a spar Unit had drifted away from the yard, and had just reached it when a strange look- inc monster thrust hi head out of water -j- .fL- n:. c-.i : I amnesiac ui uiiu. , uu uiab iwuuinc was to knock it over the head with hi oar, but it toon saved him that trouble, Tor, seeing Grillith alone, it took a spring and landed in the boat, the foree of the blow riimrly filling the little craft with water. For a short tii) the combat was intense; sometimes the sea monster had the best of it, and anon the terrified quartcrman, who labored nnder a disadvantage, every plunce the sqnntic lion taking putting the skiflT gunwale nnder water. T inally, by an almost superhuman effort, Grillith managed to ejeet the mas of finny vital ity from the boat, much to hi relief. He received several aevere bruise on his body, but, in spite of hi exciting adven ture, managed to accomplish the object of hi trip securing the par. The story is reliable and well authenticated, a large number of workmen on the navy vard having seen tbe boat, which is liter ally covered with blood and immense cales. The share of Mrs. Samuel L. Clemens (Mrs. "Mark Twain") in her father' estate amount to quarter of a million.
