You mocking, murderous old year.

At twenty minutes past six o'clock,
tho barometer showed an elevation of
20,400 feet, or live miles to a fraction.
Tho prospect seemed unbounded. In
deed, it is very easily calculated by
means of spherical geometry, how great
an extent of the earth's area I beheld.
Tho convex surface of nny segment of a
sphere Is, to tho entire surfaco of tho
sphere i tself, as tho versed sine of tho
jcgment to tho diameter of tho spiiuro.
Now, in my eao, tho versed sine that
is to say tho Ihiekntts of tho segment
beneath me was about equal to my
elevation, or tho elevation of tho point
of sight abovo tho surface. "As livo
miles, then, to eight thousand," would
express tho proportion of tho earth's
area seen by me. In otiier words, I bo-
held as much lis a sixteen-hundredth
part of tho whole surfaco of tho globe.
Tho sea appeared unruffled as a mirror,
although, by means of tho telescope, I
could perceive it to bo in a stato of vio

not believed It possible that a cloud of

on end, while leaned afar down within
tho yawning abysses, letting imagina

btrango vaulted halls, and ruddy gulfs,
and red ghastly chasms of tho hideous
and unfathomable lire. I had Indeed

my destruction might, ond probably

Such perils, nltliough Ilttlo considered,
are perhaps the greatest which must bo
encountered In balloons. I had by this
lime, however, attained too great an
elevation to ho any longer uneasy on
I wafk now rising rapidly, and by
fieven o'clock tin barometer Indicated
nn nltltude of no less than nlno miles
and a half. 1 began to And great dlfll
culty In drawing my breath. My head,
too, was excessively painful; and, hav
ing felt somo tlino a tnolstiiro about my
cheeks, I at length discovered It to bo
blood, which was oozing quite fast ftom
the drums of my cars. My eyes, also,
gave mo great uneasiness. Upon pass
ing tho hand over them they seemed to
havo.protrtidcd from their sockets in
no inconsiderable degrcejand ull objects
in thu car, and oven tho balloon itself,
appeared distorted to my vision. Theso
symptoms were moro than I had ex
pected, and occasioned mo somo ularin.
At this Juncture, very imprudently,
and without consideration, I throw out
from the car three five-pound pieces of
ballast. The accelerated rate of ascent
thus obtained, carried mo too rapidly,
and without sufllclenl gradation, into a
highly rareiltd ttratum of tho atmos'
phero, and the result had nearly proved
fatal to my expedition and to myself.
I was suddenly seized witli a spasm
which lasted formoro than live minutes
and even when this, in a measure,
cciifcd, I could catch my breath only at
long intervals, and in a gasping man
ner, bleeding all tho wlillo copiously
at tho.noso nnd ears, and oven slightly
at the eyes. The pigeons appeared dls

nearly incapable of making any exer

had, indeed little power of reilectlou
left, aud tho violence of tho pain In my
lteati seemed to bo greatly on tho in
crease. Thus I found that my senses
would shortly givo way altogether, aud
I had already clutched one of the valve
opes with tho view of attempting tide
scent, when tho recollection of tho trick
I had played tho three creditors, and
the possiblo consequences to myself,
should I return, operated to deter mo
lorthe moment. I lay down in the
bottom or tho car, aud endeavored to
collect my faculties. In this I so far
succeeded as to determine, upon the e.v
peri ment of losing blocd. Having no
lancet, however, I was constrained to
perrorin tho operation in the best man
ner I was able, and finally succeeded In
opening n vein In my left arm, with tho
blade of my penknife. Tho bloctl had
hardly commenced flowing when I ex
perienced a sensible relief, and by tho
time Iliad lost about half a moderato
bad in-full , most or the worst symptoms
had abandoned mo entirely. I never
theless did not think it expedient to
atte mpt getting on my feet immediate
ly; hut, having tied up my arm os well
as I could, I lay still for about a quar
ter or an hour. At tho end of this time
I arose, and fuund myself freer from ab
solute pain or any kind than I had been
during the last hour aud a quarter or
my ascension. Thodifiicully of breath
ing, however, wasdluiiuished In a very
slight degree, and I found that it would
soon bo positively necessary to mako
use of my condenser. In tho meantimo
looking towaids the cat, who was again
snugly stowed uwny upon my coat, I
discovered, to my Infinite surprise, that
she had taken tho opportunity of my in
disposition to bring into light a litter or
tlireo little kittens. This was an addi
tion to tho number or passengers on my
part altogether unexpected; but 1 was
pleased at the occurrence1. It would
afford mo a t haneoor bringing to a kind
of test the truth or a surmise, which,
more than anything else,hritl Influenced
mo in attempting this ascension. I had
imagined that Iho habitual endurance
of theatmophcric pressure at tho sur
faco of tho earth was tho cause, or near
ly to, of tho pain attending animal ex
istence at a distance abovo tho surfaco.
Should tho kittens ho found to sutler
uneasiness in an equal degree with their
mother, I must consider my theory In
fault, but a falluru to do so I should
look upon as a strong confirmation of
Ily eight o'clock I had actually at
tained an elevation of seventeen miles
abovo tho surfaco of tho earth. Thus It
seemed to mo evident that my ralo of
ascent was not only on tho increase, but
that tho progression would have been
apparent In n slight degreo oven had I
not discharged tho ballast which I did.
Tho pains In my head and ears return
ed, nt Intervals, with violence, and I
still continued to hired occasionally tit
tho nose; but, upon thu whole, I suffer
ed much less than might have been ex
pected. I brcathtd, however, at every
moment, with luoroaud more difllciilty
and each Inhalation was attended with
it troublesome spasmodic action of tho
chest. I now unpacked the condensing
apparatus, ami got It ready for Imme
Tho view orthocarth, at this period
or my usccnslon, was beautiful indeed.
To tho westward, tho northward, and
thu southward, as far as I could see, lay
a boundless sheet of apparently unrulH
od ocean, which every moment gained
a deepe r aud deeper tint of blue. At a
vast distance to tho eastward, although
perfectly ill seerniblu, extended tho IS'
lauds of Great IirItalii,tho entlro Athui
tic co.istsol pranco anil Spain, with a
small portion of tho northern part or
tho continent or Africa. Of Individ'
ual edifices nut a trace could bo discov
ered, mid tho proudest cities or man
kind had utitterly faded away from the
race or tho earth.
What mainly astonished me, in tho
appearanco eJf things below, was the
seeming concavity or tho surface of tho
globe. I had, thoughtlessly enough,
xpected to sco Its real convtxily ho-
como evident as I ascended; but a very
litllo reflection siifllced to oxplttiu thn
discrepancy. A lino, dropped from my
position perpendicularly to tho earth,
would hav$ formed tho perpendicular
or a right-angled triangle, of which tho
base would have extended rrom tho
right-angle to tho horizon, and tho hy
pothenuso from the horizon to my pos
ition, llut my height was ilttlo or noth
Ing In comparison with my prospect.
In other words, tho baso nnd hypothetic
uso of tho supposed triangle would, in
my case, lmvo been so long, when com.
pared to tho perpendicular, that the
two former might havo been regarded
as nearly parallel. In this manner tho
horizon of the icronaut nppcars olways
to bo upon a level with tho car. But as
tho point Immediately beneath him
seems, and is, at a great distance below
him, It seems, of course, also at a great
distance below tho horizon. Hence
tho Impression of concavity; and this
Impression must remain, until the ele
vation shall bear so great a proportion
to tho prospect, that tho apparent par
allelism of tho baso and liypothcnuse,
Tho pigeons about this time .seeming
to undergo much suffering, I determin
ed upon giving them their liberty. I
flrst untied ono of them, a beautiful
gray-mottled pigeon, and placed him
upon the rim or tho wicker-work. He
appeared extremely uneasy, looking
anxiously around him, fluttering his
wings, and making a loud cooing noiso
but could not bo persuaded to trust
himself from the car. I took him up at
last, and threw him toabouthalf-a-doz-
en yards from the balloon. IIo made,
however, no attempt to descend as
had expected, but struggled with great
vehemenco to get back, uttering at tho
same time very shrill nnd piercing
cries. He at length succeeded in ro
gaining his former station on the rim,
but had hardly done so when his head
dropped upon his breast, und ho fell
dead within the ear. The other ono
did not prove so unfortunate. To lire
vent his following tho example of his
companion, and accomplishing a return
l tnrew mm ciownwarus with all my
force, and was pleased to And him con
tinuchls descent, with great velocity
making use of his wings with ease, and
in a perfectly natural manner. In a
very short time lie was uut ofsight,atid
I havo no doubt he reached homo In
safety. Puss, who seemed In a great
measure recovered from her illness, now
made a hearty meal or the dead bird
ond then went to sleep with much ap
parent satisfaction. Her kittens wcro
quite lively and so far evinced not the
slightest sign of any uneasiness.
At a quarter-past elght,bei ng able no
longer to draw breath without the most
intolerable pain, I proceeded, forth
with, to adjust around the car the ap
paratus belonging to tho condenser.
This apparatus will require somo Ilttlo
explanation, and your Excellencies will
please to bear In mind that my object,
in tho flrst place, was to surround my
self and car entirely with a barricade)
against tho highly raretled atmosphere
in which I was existing, with the In
tention or Introducing within this bar
ricade, by means or my condenser, a
quantity or this same atmosphere suffi
ciently condensed lor the purposes of
respiration, with this object in view I
had prepared a very strong, perfectly
air-tight, but ilexiblo gum-elastic bag.
In this bag, which was of sufllclent di
mensions, tho entiro car was in a man
ner pi aced. That is to say, it (tho bag)
was drawn over tho wholu bottom of
tho car, up Its sides, and so on, nlong
tho outside of the ropes, to tho upper
rim or hoop where tho net-work is at
tached. Having pulled tho bag up in
this way, and formed a complete enclos
ure on all sides, and at bottom, it was
now necessary to fasten up Its top or
mouth, by passing its material over
the hoop of tho not-work, In other
words, between tho net-work and the
hoop. Rut If the net-work work wero
separated from the hoop to admit tills
passage, what was to sustain tho car In
tho meantimo? Now tho net-work was
not permanently fastened to tho hoop,
but attached by a series ofrunnlng loops
(jr nooses. I therefore undid only a few
of these loops at ono time1, leaving tho
car, busptnded by tho remainder. Hav
ing thus inserted a portion of tho cloth
forming tho upperpart of tho bag, I ro
fastened tho loops not to tho hoop, for
that would have been impossible, sinco
tho cloth now intervened, but to a
series of largo buttons, afllxcd to tho
cloth Itself, about three feet below the
mouth of the bag; tho intervals be
tween the buttons having been mado to
correspond to tho Intervals between tho
loops. This done, n few moro oi the
loops wcro unfastened from the rim, a
farther portion of the cloth introduced,
anil tho disengaged loops then connec
ted with their proper buttons. In this
way It was possiblo to Insert tho
whole upper part of tho bag between
the net-work and tho hoop. It is ovl
dent that tho hoop would now drop
down within tho car, wlillo the whole
weight of tho car Itself, with all its con
tents, would bo hehl up meiely by tho
strength of the buttons. This, at first
sight, would seem tin inadequate de
pendence; but It was by no means so,
for tho buttons were not only very
strong in themselves, but so' close to
gether that a very slight portion of tho
whole weight was supported by any
ono of them. Indeed, had the car anil
contents been three times heavier than
they were, Ishould.not havo been at
all uneasy, I now raised up tho hoop
again within thu covering of gum-elastic,
and propped It at nearly Its former
height by means of thrco light poles
prepared for tho occasion. This was
done, of course, to keep tho bag distend,
cd uttho top, and to j rcservo tho lower
part or tho net-work In Its proper sit
uation, All that now remained was to
fasten up tho mouth of tho enclosure;
and this was readily accomplished by
gathering tho folds of tho material to
gether, und twisting them up very
tightly on tho inside by means of a
kind of stationary tournluuet.

An Bitraordlnary Affair The
Effort to Xclcaso Bun.
A singular accident and one that
called tho greatest excitement in tho
quiet town of Wlnchostcr, occurred on
Monday. A man named Wing has been
employed a fow days past In repairing
or rebuilding n well upon tho promises
or Mr. Cameron. Monday ho was at
work about thirty feet below tho sur
faco, at the bottom of tho well, laying
uncif, with which tho well was to ho
built. IIo is a man weighing over 200
pounds, of largo frame. Ho was stand-
ng In tho water and sand at tho bottom
and, Insensibly to himself, graduallv
sank until ho discovered th.it his feet
ond legs, nearly to tho knees wero em
bedded in a quicksand. Ho mado repeat
ed attempts to movo, but found that ho
was stuck fast. Those at work at tho
mouth of tho well wcro Informed of t ho
fact, and tho ropo was fastened about
him and an attempt mado to pull him
out by the aid of tho windlass at tho
top. They wcro tinablo to movo him at
nil, and tho pain to him was so acuto
that they wero compelled to desist.
Ropes were then arranged so that ho
should not sink any decper.and attempts
wero tnatio to dig him out. Tho well
being stiioii and Mr. Wing very largo,
no ouo could get inside tho brick work
to assist him, and ho has been compell
ed to tlo nil tho dinging himself with
pails or cups, passing them ns ho filled
them to somo ono above. Tho sand
constantly filled in as ho dug it out.and
in this condition he remained all tho
night. Refreshments ond stimulants
wero sent down to him, nnd ho was
alive and In as good spirits next morn
ing as n man could be expected to be
under such circumstances. A colored
man worked In tho well eight hours
Monday night, assisting tho unfortun
ate man to extricate himself. At about
3 o'clock the fire bells of tho town wcro
rung, ami In that way a relief was ob-
tained for tho men who had been at
work and ou watch at tho well during
With daylight the men renewed their
efforts with vigor, occasionally pausing
to speak on encouraging word to tho
poor victim. The flrst train to Boston

On their arrival nttlio scene of opera
tion theso gentlemen immediately or
dered somo piles to bo driven about
him, in order that tho adhesive and
contracting properties of tho sediment
might meet with somo resistance. This
was partly accomplished, when It was
found that one leg of Mr. Wing was
getting loose, ond after somo boring
with long augurs, and a constant pull
ing upward of thecntirebodyby means
or tho windlass above, the limb was
cleared, amid much cheering from tho
crowd who surrounded the well at tho
imminent risk not only or meeting a
rate similar to that of the man whom
they were endeavoring to rescue, but
also of breaking their necks. This was
at 11 o'clock. Tho wood driven into
tiio clay so relieved the pressure upon
Mr. Wing's hotly that ono hour and a
half later ho wus pulled up and placed
on terra Anna, though In a very ex
hausted condition. IIo was Instantly
conveyed to Mr. Cameron's house, and
Dr. Windsor and Mr. Cameron endeav
ored to restore the benumbed Hmbs.For
tunately, tho well water, though in
tensely cold, had not thu slightest par
ticle or rrost in it, elso very serious con
sequences would have followed oven a
short confinement. IIo Is now doing
well, and tho physicians apprehend no
serious Injury from his Incarceration or
twonty-ono and a hairiiours. Tho citi
zens exerted themselves to tho utmost
to rescue Mr. Wing, and every fresh
idea brought forward during the weary
work found plenty of willing hands
ready to tako hold. Tho brick work
around the bottom of tho well and nlso
the etiiliing wero torn to pieces in tho
frantic endeavors of thu workmen to
save the lifo or tho unfortunate man.

UNDER THE OPERATION.
A row nnd remarkable esse of stab
bing took placo on Christmas, at 7
o'clock In the evening, on Broadway,
near Eighth street, In front of Bloch's
second hand store. Jerry Horgan was
found lying there, with a knife burled
to tho hilt in ids loft temple. Ho was
unablo to speak, nnd was thought to bo
tlying. Restoratives rovlved him, and
ho was taken to tho Cincinnati Hospit
al. Hero ho was unusually facetious in

"You'ro worth two dead men," res
pited the doctor.
"Well," said he, "I ain't At to die.
I'm too big a sinner."
While tho surgeons wero prcpariug
to extract tho knlfo ho kept opening
and shutting tho part which stuck out
of Ids head. "I Just want to sco how It
reels. It don't hurt a bit, but It seems
Hko I had two heads. Well, au Irish
man is hard to kill. AVo're a tough set,
Lifo sticks to us mighty close."
When tho surgeons got ready for
work, and found It imposslblo to extract
tho biado by hand, they laid thu man
on a couch upon the floor, aud with tho
loft side of his head uppermost. Three
men with might and main held his
head down. Tho engineer brought his
pipo tongs In to grasp tho hilt of the
knlfu. This gave a sort or augur han
dle for tho surgeon and engineer to pull
by. All things ready, tho surgeon and
engineer took hold each with both
hands', and tugging steadily with all
their power, against tlireo pairs of hands
holding tho head down, the knifo came
out with a jerk, thanks to a rivet of
good steel. Horgan bore it without
flinching, exc'almlng when tho feat was
accomplished, "Now my two heads
havo como together, and it feels good."
Tho weapon was a common two-bladed
pocket-knife, tho blade used well
worn. It penetrated two and a half
Inches. Tho optic nerve is not injured.
It is thought that Horgan is in no dan
ger; that, on tho contrary, ho will re

John W. Crockett and James Gibson
wcro nblo lawyers, and in full practice,
In tho early days of Jackson's Purchase.
They resided at Fulton, in Hickman
Co., Ky. On ono occasion they wero
employed ojipositcsof an ejectment case,
before a magistrate. The court was held
In a schoolhouse. Crockett was readiug
the law to tho court, and when ho got
through, Gibson asked him for his book,
saying that tho statute just read was
new to him. Crockett refused to glvo
It to hlin ou tho ground that it was his
own private property and if Mr. alb
son wanted tho benefit of law books,
thero wcro somo for sale. Tho court
ruled that tho book was prlvato prop
erty, nnd (hat Gibson had no right to
seo it except witii Crockett's consent.
Gibson was puzzled, but being a'inaii of
resources, hu fell upon n plan which
completely upset Crockett's calcula
tions. He stepped back, nml found
under a desk nn old copy or Noah Web
stcr's spelling book, aud in addressing
tho court, he read rrom tho speller :
be It enacted by tho General Assembly
of tho Commonwealth of Kentucky,
that all laws heretofore passed (hero
flttiug Crockett's law,) bo and they nro
hereby repealed." Crockett sprang to
Ills feet with, ''Let mo seo that book."
"No you don't," says Gibson; "this
book, sir, Is prlvato property, and lam
not in tho hubltof packing law books
around for tho benefit of others." It Is.
needless to say Crockett lost his case,
Gibson having tho cut at him.
