A CROSS THE A I LEO HEMES,
OVER FIVE STATES.
Thoso who woro nrosont at the as
cension of tho great air-shin ''Biitlulo,"
on Saturday Inst, witnessed tho com
mencement of what turned out to be
one of the longest, and decidedly tho
most lvinnrkablo and interesting bal
loon voyages over nindo in this country.
There have been but two iimtiinces in
which hnllooiiistB have remained so long
lu the air and passed over so grout an
extent of territory. One of these was
tho lumotia n'ronattt LaMounUiin and
rtv. from St LouiB to Jefferson City,
in this State, some years ueo, and the
other that of Professor King and Mr.
Luther L. Ilolden, In 1H72, lrom Can
ada, the distance travelled being some
what over 6(10 miles. Tho balloon
llufl'alo is tho laivost save one over
constructed in America, and certainly
tho most beautiful ever constructed
anywhere. IU capacity i91,0IMJcubie
feet and when InnateU w-.tn ine ordi
nary coal gas, it will lift something over
AVe left the earth at precisely fivo
mutes after six o clock, and m ten
minutes bud reached an altitude of
2,107 feet Tho balloon took a course
very little east of south, passing over
tho bay. There were clouds nnovoanu
around and tho atmosphere towards
the horison was quite haxy. Aaa con
sequence the stretch of vision was lim
ited. A largo section of country was
visible, however, and tho sight was one
of much beauty.
Passinif southward through Now
York, without much of interest occur
ring, about twentv minutes after mid
night we crossed what was taken to be
the first rnngoot tho Allegheny Mount
ains. The passage over the main chain
and rnngo was made in less than two
hours. 1 lie balloon nootoo at vanous
leirrees of altitude during the passage
Frequently we were so near tho oarth
us to bear tho wind rushing through
tho tree tois, and tho sound of rushing
waters. Sometimes the dark outline
of un immense jienk higher than those
about would rise up, and then Profess
or King would discharge the requisite
amount ot ballast to "lilt us over.
Tho drng-nijie, which perhaps for a
lew moments bail been "wishing
throuirh tho tree tops, occasionally
irivinir a tug at the basket for a moment
when caught by a limn, would swing
tear, and on wo would go, tho next
instant perhaps passing over a deep
valley. Thus wo passed on "over the
mountains high, nnd finally letl the
Alleirhnnies behind. At twenty min
ute niter four, streaks of dawn begun
to aimenr, and then came the great anx
iety to know where wo were. We
knew that we had passed well over
Pennsylvania, and the prevailing opin
ion was that wo were cither in Mary
land or Virginia. As the morning ad
vanced, some of the sleepy deuieens
appeared outdoors, but when shouted
to and made to loos up and seo that a
balloon was passing at no great distance
alsivc them, they only gazed in stupid
wonder and nevor thought ot answer-
inif tbe questions shouted down to
them, demanding "What State is this?"
"What county, or, what town?" Fin
ally, however, one was found less stolid
than Hie rest, and from him wo learned
that we were crossing lork county
Pa. Soon tho Susquehanna Kivor was
reached and crossed near t uilon coun
ty., Twenty minutes after passing tho
Susqnehenna, wo crossed a corner of:
Mary land, a tew miles lrom Havre ae
now to tho easterly, a portion of the
Delaware was passed over. Wo cross
ed the Delaware liivor at twenty min
utes to seven, directly over Delaware
City, At this time tbo greatest alti
tude attained during the voyage was
reached, via., 0,758 feet, or not fur
short of two miles. Wo doubt if mortal
man ever before looked on such a sceno
ns now met tho irnzo of tho vovairera.
Spread out around us seemed" what
might be taken for the very garden of
the world. Plainly to lie seen were
Newcastle, Wilmington, Elkton, Havre
do Grace, and numerous other towns,
villages, and cities in the different States.
LcaeTue Island and Philadelphia were
dimly to be seen, as wero also Cape
May and tho ocean itself, tho wholo of
Delaware Bay, and tbo greater portion
of ChpafincnKo Bnv. HAvinrr deter
mined to effect a feuding before ap
proaching nearer to tho coast, the
Professor oioned tho large valve, al
lowing tho gas to escnpo, nnd wo rap
idly upproacned tho earth. Wo were
then in the vicinity of Salem, N.J.,
and first touched ibo ground in the
corner of a wheat field, some aeven
miles lrom that place. As wo nearcd
the earth it was found that a high
wind threatened to cntiso no small
amount of trouble. The shock when
the basket struck tho ground was tor
rific, and it was only ny firmly grasp
itig and hanging lo the ropes that tho
party woro not hurled neck nnd heel
from the car. liebounding almost on
tho Instant, the balloon rose to the
height of some two hundred feet, and
in two minutes more again struck in
grovo of small Bcrub-ouk and hickory
trees, half a-mile distant. Immediately
on tho rebound from first striking, the
nnchom were let go, nnd on reaching
the woods, theso unfortunately cnught
in the tos of two of tho largest trees,
instead of fastening themselves in the
ground. Thus it wus difficult lor the
car to reach tbe ground. Shouts for
assistance soon brought Charles John
son, a colored man living in tho vicin
ity, and two or threo otnors to the spot
ifuintimo the balloon, tho bulk of
which was abovo the trees, surged to
and fro nnd plunged about most terrific
ally, under the influence of the prevail
ing wind, and threatened to uproot or
tear itself free of all restraint. More
help ooming, however, tho basket was
finally forced to the ground, where, by
tying ropes to tho trees ami bending
tn.o limbs of saplings over tho basket,
it was held. Drawing on the map a
direct line from Bullalo to Salem the
course taken by the bullcsin waa di
rectly southeast, and tho distance,
measured on tho scale, Just 3110 mile.
It is no exaggeration to say, however,
that taking tbe deviations hito account,
the actual distance gone over will con
siderably exceed 400 miles. 1 ho dura
tion ot tho voyage was thirteen nnurs
and one minute tbo landing having
been mado fivo minutes past seven

ROYAL JiEEDLE WOMEN,
The Empress Eugenio is said to be
an accomplished artist In needlework
and onibroidory. During the last year
she ha beguilod the weary hour of
their tedium by working n let of
"vestments" for the little chapel where
ah worships, and also s stool and
cushion for the prieat. , Sojoaloue was
the lair dovotce ol sharing the pious
task with another, that she would not
allow a Blitch to be set bv anv hand
but bor own. Tho gentle craft ol
noedlowork has been praotiued by
many Iloyal ladios before tbe time of
Eugenie. Matilda of Flaudera, tbe
spouse of William tbe Conqueror, was
particularly famed for her akill in em
Lroidory; and the Bayous tapestry,
still preserved in the iioyeux cathe
dral, attests bor ingenuity and indus
try with the needle. Into a pioceof
canvas iu inches wide and 07 yards in
lengw, tho noyni may, with the as-
siel-anc of ber ladiw, stitched tbe
history of tbe oonquost of England by
hor martial consort, oommonoing with
tbe visit of Harold to tbe Aorman
Court, and ending with his death at
the battlo of Hastings. "The losding
transactions ot these ovontlul yesra,
the death of Edward the Confessor,
and the coronation of Harold in tbe
chamber of the Royal doad, are repre
aonted in the clearest and most regu
lar order In this pieco ot needlework,
which contains many bundred figures
of mon, horsos, birds, beasts, trees,
housos, castles, snd cburcbeg all oie

name and inscription over thorn to
elucidate tbe atory."
e may bono the beautiful but ban
loaa Mary, Quoen of Scots, waa able
to cheat tho hours during her long and
weary imprisonment, of a part of their
miaery, by her close application to the
neodlo. She wrought several curious
and elaborate works in embroidery,
wbile a captive in hor haughty couam s
toila, which aro noted in history. In
a letter to hi friend, "rare Ben John
son," Sir William Drummond describee
a bed ol atato wbicb yueea JUary cov

broidered in gold and ailk. She was
conaidered to poasoss great talent for
composing those pictorial allegories.
thirty rebuses and punning devices,
bosides much heraldio blazonry, were
stitched into this bed of state. "Tho
workmananip," concludes Sir William
"is curiously dono, snd truly It may
be said ol it, the elocution surpasaod

A I'loatino MsNAUSRiaV-ltis stated
that a party of army officer who have
been cngagaed in mounting guns, and
otherwise putting tho Gulf forts in
serviceable ronditlrm, while sailing
through tho Mississippi Sound, since the
recent flood, encountered remarkable
sceno. For miles wero soon logs,
driftwood, and patches of turf and toil
floating out into tho Gulf, filled with
live animals, who clung to their frail
bark with the tenacity of shipwrecked
mariners. Among the animals were
seen rati, raccoons, possums, rabbits,
alligators, moccasin snakes in uncount
ed numbers, all carried down from the
swamps snd marshes, perhaps lrom ntty
to one hundrod mile inland. The
novel exhibition bad a scientific intorest,
as it suggested the manner in which,
during past geological periods, animals
were transported from regions far in
land to the mouth or eotuarics, snd
their bono being entombed in the allt
