evening stak Niagara Falls mott hare presented a grand sight Sunday, during the gale,?when, at Clifton, (S??pfn-ion Bridge,) trees were torn up, email tenement#, shanties and out buildings overturned, and their fragments strewed over the field in every direction. The ?olume of water driven over she Fal's of Nia fra ww truly appalling, carrying with it drift wood, logs and Umbers from the deigned wharves and shares above The 8u?pen?iin Bridge was considered in greU danger The toll gstes were for a time deserted, and manj ancient eye tremblingly awaited the destruc tion of this magnificent structure. But the hur ricane in all its terrible fury swept by. leav ing the edifice unscathed. The wa'or bel >w tho F.ills raised over thir ty feet, entirely covering the p;cr3 of the steam boat landing, and the landing room at the fo^t oi the staircase on the American side The most remarkable event wa* the over throw of the old Pagoda, which stood 01 the highest point of the battle ground, at Lusdy's Lane. fhe intense rocking started the in mates from the wo.oden tancment at the base, an 1 scarea!y h id they .n?de good their escape, when with a tremendous crash, the entire tow er, ot nearly two hundred feet, measured its lenth upon the fmtsn ground, scattering its upper portion Into a thousand fragments; for tunately nQl\7cs were lost, as it feil to the westward^ in the open fields. Had it fallen in ?ny other direction, it must hive crushed in ?avera? dwellings A Biblo was rafted off at a coffee house an Louisville a few days ago It was put up at $100, arid was won by a Southern Kentuck ian, who threw fortj-four. Why not? Is it more immoral and irreligious to raffle for a Bible than to rai?e money to aid the church ^7 * system of gambling * The latter is done ?7e!T .^*7 bjr all denominations of profesxw' christians, and clergy and laity approve. We suppose they adi?pt the principle (not a very sound one, we imagine.) that ?* the end justi ces the mean* " Yet these people will turn up their eyr.3, with an affectation of holy hor ror. at tar idea of raffling for a Bible ! Ver ily, ver.iy, we " strain at gnats and swallow came^," jn this age of progress; in which fashionable religion is as progressive as every fb'ig else, in all things save ganuine piety. This Is simply regarded ''old fogyism."? Augusta Chronicle. ? 'A chap in Albany recently advertised " an inlallible method to detect a counterfeit bank note,' whieh he proposed to impart to all who chose to learn it for52 each. A good many 'gr??en ones' paid the amount, in re turn for which they received t.jo following in structions, which, though good enough in their way, were hardly worth the money : " When ever you take a biil about waich you enter tain the slightest doubt, at once proceed to ine banker in whom you place the most oon iiden?e, offer him the bill with a request that he will chango it, and if ho declines so to do, make up your mind that the not* is bad." arrivals atthe principal hotels %Villnr>t?'
