Jour. .1 man over the Falls Nei ther fiction nor fact furnit lies an incident of more thrilling inte rest than one which occurred last cveninjr at the Falls, and if detailed below by our corres pondent. There is something! terribly appalling, almost sub lime, in the struggles for life of a ftrong, self-possessed fnan, when drawn into the torrent that with the speed of a race horse sweeps him onward to certain destruction. A moment scarce ly elapses between entire safe ty and a most' fearful death, yef into time moment what a wcditft of life may be compressed. How like lightning must flash through the in in J, all'the pleas ant recollections of childhood, the firm resolves of vigdrtfuv manhood, the hopes of the fu ture, the endearments of home and friends, repentance for pas! errors, and prayers for forgive ness in that dread presence to which he is so awfully siimmon ed. Buffalo .., Oct 2. JY'iv ra Falls, Oct. 2, '48. At about sun-down last eve ning, a man was carried over the Falls. Who he was is not known.1 From his management of the sail boat in w hic h hecamu down the liver, 1 think he was not well acquainted with the current of the rapids. I lis dress and appearance indicated re spectability; and after he got in to the rapids his self-possession was most extraordinary. His boat was n very good one decked over on the bow, and 1 should think would carry three or four tons.- From what 1 learn of a sail boat 'having been seen below Black Rock, coming down; 1 think it is from there or Buffalo.' No other than a per son unacquainted with the cur rent above the rapids would venture so near them. I was on the head of Goat Island when I first discovered the boat then near half a mile below the foot of Navy Island, and nearly two miles above the Fall. There seemed to be two in the boat. It was directed to wards the American shore the wind blowing from this shore, and still the sail was standing. Being well acquainted with the river, I regarded the position of the ooat as extraoruinary una hazardous, and watched it with intense anxiety; ; Soon I disco vered the motion of ah oar, and from the changing direction of the boat, concluded it had but one. While constantly ap proaching nearer "and nearer the rapids, I could discover it; 'was gaining the American ahorc, & by the time it had got near tbe first falls in the rapids, about a half mile above (joat Island.it was directly above the Island. '1 here it was turned up the riv er, and for some time the wind kept it nearly stationary. The only hope seemed to be to come directly to (ioat Island, and whether F, should run half a mile to give the alarm or re main to assist, in the event the boat attempted to make the Isl and, was a question of painful doubt. But soon the boat was again turned towards the Amer ican shore. Then it was cer tain it must go down the Amer ican rapids. 1 fan for the bridge saw nd informed a gentleman and lady just leav ing the Island, but they seemed unable to reply or move. 1 ral lied a man at the toll gate we ran to the main bridge in time to see the boat just before it got to the first large fall in the rap ids. "Then I saw but one man; he standing at the stern with his car, changing the course of the boat down the current, and as it plunged over he sat down. I was astonished to see the boat rise with the mast and sail stan ding, and the man again erect, directing the boat towards the shore. As he came to the next and to each succeeding fall, he sat down, and then would rise and apply his oar in the inter mediate current. Still there was a hope that he would come near enough to the pier to jump, but in a moment it was gone. Another, that he might jump upon the rock near thebridge, but the current dash ed him from it under the bridge, breaking the mast. -Again he rose on the opposite side. Ta king his Oar and pointing his boat to the main shore, he cri cil, had I letter jump from the beat?" We could imt an swer, for either s;V-med certain desti ne timi. Within a few iods of the falls, the boat struck a rock, turned over and lodged, lie appeared to crawl from un der it and swam wifh the oar in his hand till he wept over the precipice. ' Without the power to render any assistance-lbr half an hour watching a strong man strug gling with every nerve for lile, yet doomed with almost the cer tai..t3' of destirj' to an immedi ate and awful death, still hoping with every effort of his deliv erance-caused an intensity of excitement I pray God never again to experience. I write too hurriedly for publication, but I have slated all we,,have seen or know respecting 'the man or boat, and from which I hope you will be able to glean so much for publication, as will lead to i he discovery of -the man.

OA A' of the mot remarkable instances of the success which attends w ell ap plied energy and perseverance, is exhibit ed in the ease of Dr David Jayxe, of Philadelphia, with whose advertisements the readers of the Register are familiar. The Doctor, alter spending many years of his !"fe in practice, and a'caretul investiga tion of the origin and, cli racier of dis eases, applied himself to the preparation of remedies, aud the(extelU nee of his com pounds is attested by the grateful thanks of thousands, who have proved the benefits of his skill and scientific knowledge: His are not mere quack nostrums, but prcpara ions resulting from long and careful st:i dy, and as they serve, iu an eminent de gree, the good purposes for which they weiYintendcd, success has followed the proprietor's enterprise and labors. His es tablishment Is now one of the largest in the United States, and besides furnishing every city, town, and township in the country with his invaluable rcuiedies, he ships annual. y, immense quantities to foX reign lands. In the prosecution of his plans for bring ing his specifies to the notice of the whole people, Dr. Jayne has issued a Family Almanac, containing certificates and tes timonials of the highest character. We see it stated in the Gurmantown Telegraph that "last year one million of the i4lma iincs were published for lS-i8, and all dis tributed; This year, the demand for 1 8 19, is so great, that two poWer presses, driven by steam, are running day and night, with double set of hands,' atttt "are unable to meet the demands of the publio for the Al manacs. Indeed, Messrs. Stavely & Mc Calla, who do the pressTw ork, have found it necessary, to meet the wants of the pub lisher, to obtain a third power press! Tied million, and a half' copies will be required for 1849, consuming from twelve Jo fifteen thousand reams of paper, and incurring an ' expense) at the very small rate of two cents each c6py, and w'e cannot see how they can be furnished at so low a pi-ice of fijiy thousand dollars!- This is wonder ful, exhibiting, as U does, one of the most remarkable instances of enterprise on re cord. 1 But it must be remembered that this large sum, which is a fortune of itself,' is entirely given away the whole two mil lions and a half of Almanacs are gratui tously given to merchants, storekeepers, families and individuals, with a view to their general gratuitous distribution thro' put the United States. The position of Dr. Jayne is an envia ble one achieved by his own unaided en ergy, industry and 'enterprise drawing largely from an extensive knowledge of medical jurisprudence and he now stands at the head of the discoveries of medicines for "the milfon,"" which have not only been pronounced to be unequalled as rem edies, for the disease's severally set apart by the proprietor, Jtc, but .'"stined to conlcr upon the human family ineklcula- ble benefits in the form of rstoi- heaft. ; and prolonged existence.
