Niagara Falls of the presence of sharks
and 'peculators of every description,
nnd it is hardly possible that the
Congress of the United States will
consent to fasten a similar horde upon
the great and beautiful Park, which is
now justly regarded as the most won
derful, as it is the most beautiful
manifestation of Nature in her most
wayward freeks. A railroad would
be altogether out of place in the Park.
