Description
Full Text

NIAGARA FALLS.--By several accounts, we learn that the " Great Attraction at the Niagara Falls," eventuated in a perfect failure...The Schooner SUPERIOR which was to have been "precipitated entire, into the gulf below," lies upon a reef of rocks in one foot of water, and no one disputes "Her Great Strength" or that she will lay there until a freshet carries her off.

      . . . . .

      The Buffalo Republican states that during the gale on the 23d ult, the schooner SUPERIOR started from where she lodged at the late performance at the Falls, and went over. She reached the brink of the Falls without breaking.
