We present to strangers a new Hand-Book of the Falls, being a concise Directory to the many interesting places in this vicinity.
This compilation we believe to be full and comprehensive. We have avoided giving any labored descriptions of the Falls, or of the different scenes around, because such are to be found every where: and we think, too, that every one who visits this land of 'many wonders' can himself best comprehend and describe the objects presented.
Captain Basil Hall remarks, 'All parts of Niagara are on a scale which baffles every attempt of the imagination, and it were ridiculous therefore, to think of describing it: the, ordinary means of description, I mean analogy, and direct comparison, with things which are most accessible, fail entirely in the case of that amazing cataract, which is altogether unique.'
'All the pictures you may see,' say J. J. Audubon, 'all the descriptions you may read, of these mighty falls, can only produce in your mind the fain glimmer of the glow worm, compared with the overpowering glory of the meridian sun.'
