A Leap. It is stated in the
Black Rock N. Y. Gazette, that
some rude unfeeling boys, a few
days since, took a dog and threw
him into the rapids of the Niagara
river, just above the Niagara
Falls, and, that the poor ani
mal, in despite of his exertions,
was precipitated over the stupen
dous precipice; when, strange to
record, the dog was discovered in
the tumbling Hood below, pulling
for the shore; upon reaching which
he was found to have sustained
only a slight injury in one of his
legs. This is the first living ani
mal ever known to come off so

.Natural Light. A fountain of
carbonated hydrogen gas has been
discovered at Portland Harbor,
(Lake Erie,) and preparations are
making to raise it upon a pedes
tal, as a substitute for a light house.
The gas issues through fissures
of a rock about fifty feet above the
surface of the water in the harbor,
and is of sufficient quanty to afford
a most brilliant light.

Killing no Murder. In India
na, lately, a father shot and kill

to marry his daughter without his
consent. The young man was
riding to the Clergyman's with
the young woman behind him.
The father surrendered himself
and wos admitted to bail.
North and South. The fol
lowing remarks are extracted from
a speech recently delivered at Al
bany, N. Y. by the Hon. M. Van
Buren, at a State Convention for
the purpose of appointing dele
gates to the Harrisburg Conven
tion. Mr. V. B. it will be recol
lected, made a tour through the
Southern States at the close of the
last session of Congress, and his
remarks are founded on actual
"He knew that the wool grow
ers had not for the time being a
good market for their wool, for he
had himself two shearings, of no
inconsiderable amount, on hand
He knew too that the farmers had
not obtained good prices for their
produce, and lie could assure
that it should not be any fault of
his if they were not obtained; but
it was nevertheless true, that the
attentive observer could witness
every where throughout the State
the smiles of prosperity and plen
ty. Is this, he asked, a picture of
imagination, or is it reality gra
tifying, consoling, heart-cheering
reality? He put it to the knowl
edge and observation of e very
man who heard him, whether there
was any thing more certain than
that there is no spot on God's
earth more prosperous and happy
than the State of New-York. If
there was a citizen of the State
who doubted it, let him travel and
he will be convinced of his error;
And if he can desire to witness a
picture of the reverse, let him pass
through the Southern Slates, of
which so much has been said: and
if he did not return satisfied with
the superior prosperity of his own
State, he (Mr. V. B.) would ac
knowledge his incapacity to judge
in the matter.17
