Niagara falls. (search)
Over Niagara falls. --The Toronto Leader relates that on the 27th ult. a Buffalo steam tug, with two scows in tow, got too far into the current of Niagara river, just above the falls, for the head of steam on, and the captain and crew of four men becoming alarmed leaped overboard and struck for the shore. The captain and three men succeeded in getting to land, out the fourth man sunk beneath the leaping and boiling waters, and was carried over the awful cataract. Some men in one of the scows were rescued by two boatmen who put off in a shift to their assistance. The tug and one of the scows went over the falls, but the other scow struck on a rock just before the brink, and remains there.
