Air Voyage Across Lake Ontario.
The successful voyage of Mr. Steiner from
Toronto, across Lake Ontario to the vicinity of
Oswego, was attended with some incidents of
peril. His voyage commenced on the 24th
ult. at half-past four P. M., and in fifteen
minutes the balloon attained an altitude of
five thousand feet, the wind carrying it in a
south-easterly direction at the speed of about
thirty miles an boar. An hour later Mr.
Steiner found himsolf at a bight of nine
thousand feot. In his narration Mr. Steiner
says :
Heavy masses of olouds to the north and
nartb-west slowly accumulated, and in mojes
tio silence floated eastward Into their secrets
it was given to the aeronaut to inquire To the
dweller upon earth they appeared solid and
dark, but from tbe side turned skyward deep
caverns were discernible in eaob, tilled with the
sun's rays, intensely, gloriously bright. But
though their presence pleased the eye tbey
chilled the .itmosphere. Tbe balloon began to
dei-eencl. it required the discharge of a consid
erable quantity of ballast ere it was brought
to a stand. Kull further to add to tba difficulty
of the situation, a thick vapor rose up from the
lake, which, gathering round the I'uropa, be
came condensed on her surface, and added
very considerably to her weight.
Tbe balloon dropped down with the weight
of water comparatively near the surface of the
Lako, and was kopt afloat by throwing over
ballast. The Earopa was thus lightened until
she ascended higher than before J. he narra
tive says :
The sun had gone down; darkness covered
tho faco of the earth. It was very oold, and
an uncomfortable fooling seized upon the aerial
wanderer, ilia loet and hands became DO'
numbed, his ears bezan to aobe, and that hilar'
ity, which all voyageurs describe as attendant
upon ascent into rarifled air, departed. By
wrapping himself up, however, he managed to
keep from freezing, and continued on his way.
And now oame an event in the voyage which
well liioh provod fatal. Whon tho sun had
gone down, Prof. Stoiner had tied the neck of
the balloon to prevent any unnecessary Sow of
gas, so that tbe ascending power might be re
tained as long as possible. About eight o'olock,
and in tbe space of five seoonds, ho suddenly
found himself in the midst of an immense mass
of vapor. It was pitch dark; he could not
even see tbe balloon which bore him, but soon
found be was rising with an immense speed'
His attentive ear was caught by the hissing
sound of the gas, which was forcing its way
through; aud, instantly springing into the net
tine, he felt that the balloon was distended to
her utmost capacity. It was but the work of
a moment to untie the string which confined
the neck, and out caino the hydrogen with a
ruah, which had nearly suffocated the traveler.
The clouds disappeared as they had come, and
once more the Europa went calmly on her
way. To the north and north-east clouds were
still discernible, but elsewhere the stars
twinkled in the clear heavens. It wag still
very oold, but more gas having been discharged
a oon genial atmosphere was soon reachod.
About half-past nine o'olock, Prof. Steiner
neared the Little Bodus light, and shortly af
terward he sighted Oswego.
A Bravr Missionary. A correspondent of
tho Philadelphia Lcdyir, who writes from China,
says :
I was taking tea, tba other evening, with a
missionary friend, and was introduced to the
Rev. Mr. Williams, of tho Episcopal Church,
lately front bis station in the intorior, and then
upon the point of leaving for a now field of
labor about Nagasaki, Japan. I could not
but look with interost upon this young man, so
soon to presont himsolf bofore a nation of forty
million heathens, and proclaim tho eternity of
a God whom they had to impiously driven
from their shores more than two hundred
years since. Us was thin and frail-looking,
apparently a hard student, and with liberality
of feeling stamped upon a broad and open
brow. I thought I saw a fit instrument for a
work whioh, to be successful, mutt be ham
pered with no rival feeling of bigotry or roll
gious intolerance.
Watbr Sfouts. A letter from Key West,
Florida, says :
It is not long since wo had a most mngnifi
cent exhibition of water spouts iu the harbor.
IToin a sinulo cloud in tbo nortbwost wo
counted no less than thirteen, all playing away

or trumpet. We have read somewbero of
twelve water spouts being seen at Malta at

General Cass is really a wonderful man,
Tho Washington Slates thus describes him:
As we were passing along under that shady
archway of greon branches eastward ot Latay
etto Square, tho other evening, we met tho
venerable chief of tho State Department, walk
ing as briskly and erectly as a young soldier
iust crowned with victory. He was dressed in
a loose summer suit, ana looirea so blltne and
hannv that we could not forego stopping him
in his promenade, and telling him how hale
and hearty he was. As usual, he was most
pleasant. General Cass is always so. We
know no man so urbane in his deportment or
so ready in speech. He really appears, when
in animated conversation, as a well-preserved
man of fifty, although he bas seen bis three
score and ten years.
A Warning to Boys who Staso on Tnnm
Hcads. The Portage (O.) Sfntincl says : We
regret to record that our townsman, Dr. W. M
Prentico, has sustained a severe atlliotion lathe
death of bis little son, Frank. While visiting
recently with his grand-parent, in Boardman
Township, Mahoning County, he wag taken
suddenly ill, and upon investigation the cause'
was found to proceed from too violent muscular
exertion, he being accustomed, like many other
boys, of performing luoh feats as walking on
his bands, standing on his head, eto. He con
tinued to grow worse from day to day, tqe
disease acting upon hit physical nature, and
not at all influencing his brain, until Tuesday
of last week, when he expired. A few moments
before his death he bade his parents, little
sister, and all his friends good bye, and notic
ing the feelings exhibited by them, took the
bands or his lather and said, "jyoor papa and
mamma," and immediately oomposed himself
for that sleep whioh knows no waking in this
world. ,
Diamond Mines in Arkansas—Pike's
Peak Nowhere.
Dr. David Dale Owen, now engaged iu the
geological survey of Arkansas, has published
a letter, in which bo stales Ihnt there is a pus-
sibility of finding dinmouds in certain parts
of the State. Ho says:
During my geological recuunoissnnee this
season in Jeli'erson county, I huvo discovered
larga quantities ol silicilied wood, bearing
east and west, through sections 10 and 17.
towuship 3, rungo 1:1, and it will doubtless bo
found in a correspondine course in manv lo
calities east and west, or south of west and
norm ot east ot these tracts. Along this
range of wood, owing to the peculiar nature
of its metamorphism, there is a possibility of
finding diamonds, and it would be well for
those residing iu the vicinity of this forma
tion to be alive to this fact and look out for
them. If thoy occur in this district they are
most likely Io be discovered iu the earth sub
jacent to the silicified stumps. Their pecu
liar adamantine luster, exet-eding hardness
as well as crystalline fo-m will serve to dis
tinguish them from limpid quartz, with which
thoy aro often confounded,
Gas Retorts.
A new gas retort has been invonted, which
possesses one or tw i uuiqao and useful fca
tures. The objeot of one arrangement distin
guishing the invention is, to prevent tho for
mation or collection of tar in tbo mouth-piece
of horizontal gas retorts, which is a sourco of
suoh groat inconvenience in retorts, having
their heads construoted in tho usual manner
and to this end, this feature of invention con
stBts in so constructing the head of tho retort
as to fit up the lower part of the niouth-pioce,
whioh is always cool and pleasant; also in
clined surface below tho stand-pipe, that any
tar which may bo formed by condensation within
the stand pipe and return into tho mouth
piece may be collected upon the surface, and
thereby caused to run back into the retort,
where it is decomposed and converted into
gas. Anothor feature peculiar to this inven
tion consists in socuriog the boat! of a horizon
tal retort by means of an eccentric or cam and
lever applied in combination with a horizontal
cross-bar, so as to laston the head by a very
simple means. The device is said to au.swer
the purpose in a vory effective manner.
Singular Freak.
An unmarried man, by the name of Phillip
Fezman, residing about a mile this side of
New London, Oneida County, came to his
death a few days sinoe, by the adoption of a
singular and extraordinary freak. Ho lived
with bis mother, a widow woman, and about
a year ago he took into his bead that be ought
not to eat anything but bread and water, tie
lived on that diet alone until about fivo or six
weeks ago, whoa ho again took a notion that
bis hands were so dirty that he ought not to
eat bread, and water ho would not drink only
as be inspected it in the bucket as it came
from tbe well; and sometimes ho would require
that a number of pails-full should be drawn
before he would drink. For forty-three days
bofore his death he ate not a mouth full, as bis
mother is positive llo would wash his hands
frequently for an hour at a time. While he
lived on bread be would require that his part
should be baked by lUolt, and then no wouia
break off and oat it as ho wanted it. Whon he
became so weak that he could not go out, then
be would carefully inspect the water brought
him. It was a singular frenk. lie was,
doubtless, partially insane, although be talked

These Machines bare been steadily advancing in
popular favor for the past year.andare noweateemed
by all who have given them a trial as the "Ne Plus
Ultra" of Sowing Machines. The evenuesa and reg
ularity, and tightness of stitch made by them, baa,
moro than anything else, tonded to thla result. Added
to this is tbo undeniable fuct of their simplicity and
g.,io of management, there being no baud or cog
wheels, as in some Machines, or leather pads and
"rooked noodles, as in others. Theycommeud them
selves to the drosa-maker by the regularity of the
feeding arrangement, which never packers or tears
the work, by the uniformity of stitch alike on botb
tides of the fabric, by tbelr noisolessness and rapidi
ty; to the tailor by their great strength and durabili
ty, tightness of stitch and capacity for using linen
thread; to families, by tho combination of all these
uulitiea. Send lor a circular and sample of work,
