Over the Falls.

--A terrible casualty happened at Niagara Falls on Sunday. A young man about 18 years of age, clerk for T. T. Murray, started from the French landing on the American side to go to Chippewa, and after having traversed in safety nearly the whole breadth of the river until near Chippewa Creek, was lost to the view of those who had watched his perilous passage. The boat was seen shortly afterwards by persons on the Canada shore, driving through the rapids above the brink of the Falls, right side up, and empty. It is, therefore, supposed that the occupant either leaped or tumbled into the river above, and was swept over the cataract. His body has not yet been recovered. Places of the boat were found below in the afternoon.
