THE EVENING STAR 4 Terrible Seen* at Niagara rails* [ From the Buffalo Courier, Aug. 9.] It has been known that Farinj, tne fanam bnllst, who several jears ago was Blondin's rlta] on the tight rope at Niagara Falls, was making preparations to ford the rapids above the American Fall on a pair of iron stilts, con trived for the purpose. The exhibition was to have come oflion the 15th. Early yesterday morning, we leara, the fool-hardy man went oat to rehearse the dangerous feat. He sue ceeded in gettiag ?ore than half way across, ?t a point between the falls and the Great Island bridge, when one of his suits broke or gave way, and he was instantly In the rapids Fortunately the place of his accident was di rectly above Robinson's Island, a small Dieee ?Vr???<Vaad WWeli lleB to th? Hght of K Jan Fan dwtryneafihebriBlt of*h* Ameri ^i .!?..? succeeded in struggling to th? If land, and dragged himself from tr' t had *PParently sustained a painful injury in one of his limbs. The poor man was soon discovered Kitting very compos edly on a log at the edge ol the island. A large and not very sympathizing crowd col lec .? don the Goat Island bridge and elsewhere, but up to yesterday afternoon notan effort had been made to repcue the nnfortnnate man. In fact, onr informant tells ns that in aftw hours public curiosity seemed to have sated itself an ? scarcely any excitement was visiile. Farini's frightful percn is about Boo or 1,000 fe?t below the bridge before spoken of, and aorioubt->dly a rope cduid be floated to him and thereby a cable perhaps be swung, by wbicb, if the man is not too much exhausted cr injured, he might be able to effect an escape. It is feared, however, that before anything is done h? will be Incapable from lack of food and nervous excitement to help himself At present he can be distinctly descried, cool enougb apparently, but making not the slight est effort to attract attention or signal for re. lief. He is in his tizbta and bareheaded, and is seen frequently to rnb and press bis wound, ed limb. A more frightful predicament tu^n tfeat be is in, could not easilv be conceived. *e understand that some persons suppose Farinl to be playing a practical joke, or to be f ractlsing an advertising dodge. Itisscnrce y possible that this can be the case, or that any inch felicitous results can come from such a desperate looking state of things.
