The Perils of Ballooning.—Thrilling
Narrative the Adventures of Messrs,
La Mountain and Haddock.
public has already been Informed of the
safe arrival at Ottawa, C. W., on the 3d init,
of Prof. La Mountain and Mr. Haddock, who
aseended in the balloon "Atlantio" fromWater
town, N. T., on the 22d of September, and for
whose safety muoh fear was felt. Mr. Had
dock has written along but interesting account
of their wanderings and sufferings in the
wilderness. It appears the balloonists were
up iu the air tome four or five hours, when
finding themselves over a dense wilderness,
and the darkness of the night around them,
they concluded to descend. They did so and
passed the night in the balloon fastened to the
top of a tall spruce treo, and exposed to a
drenching rain. At daylight they again
asoended, and here we leave Mr. Haddock to
speak for himself:
"As the current was driving ns still to the
north, we dare not stay np, as we were drifting
farther and still farther to the "frozen tide"
from which we knew there could be no escape.
Mr. LaM. seized the valve oord and discharged
gas, and we descended in safety by the
tide of a large spruce. We made the
Atlantio fast by her anchor, and talked over
for a moment what we should do. We had
not a mouthful to eat. No protection at night
from the damp ground, were distant we knew
not how far from habitation, were hungry to
start with, no earthly hope of raising a fire
and no distlnot idea as to where we were. We
settled in our minds, that we were in John
Brown's tract or in the great Canada wilder
nessto the south, we thought of the Ottawa,
'And knew that a course south by east would
take us out if we had strength enough to travel
tne aistance. xia jvi. supped up to the bai
loon and gave the edge of the basket a parting
shake, saying, 'Good bye, old Atlantic,' and I
fancied 1 oould see a tear in his honest eye
A minute account of their wanderings in a
dense foreat is then given. They traveled
milos on foot along a oreek, crossed and re
orossed it on a log, slopt on its banks, suffering
intonsely moanwhile from cold and wet
woather. Subsequently they formed a raft,
and on this slowly proceed on by polling it,
in the hope of reaohlng tome habitable settle
ment. Hers we quote :
"It had now been four full days tince we ate
a meal. All we had ate in the mean time was a
frog apiooo, four olams and a fow wild berries,
whose acid properties and bitter tasto had
probably done us more harm than good. Our
strength, was boginning to fail very fast, and
our systems wero evidently about to undergo
an extraordinary change. I did not permit
mysalf to think of food the thought of a well
oovorod table would havo been too much. I
'bought over all of poor Strain's sufferings on
tho Isthmus of Daricn, where he, too, was
paddling a raft down an unknown stream; but
nevor bellovcd we oould stand half the amount
of suffering he did. Besides, he had means to
make a fire we had none. He was upon a
stream which he know would lead to the sea
and safety we were upon waters whose flow
we knew really nothing of, and were as much
lost as though in the mountains of the moon.
But we "oould not give it up bo," and took
fresh oourage as troubles appeared to thicken."
. Soon after they heard the report a gun, and
tho two lost men paddled their raft in the
direotion whence the report came, a distance of
nearly a mile. Seeing a shantee, Mr. Had
dock rushed on shore. Here we quote again :
I halloed a noise was heard inside, and a
noble-looking Indian came to tho door.
' Vou$ parley Franeaite.1' was my enger in
quiry, as I grasped his outstretched hand.
' Yes, Bir; and English, too." Ho drew me
into the cabin, and there was the head of the
party, a noble-hearted Scotchman, named
Angos Cameron. I immediately told my
story that we came in with a balloon, were
lost, and had been four days without food
asking where we were. Imagine my surprise
when he said we were one hundred and lil'ty
miles due north of Ottawa, in the dense, un
inhabited forest, whose only limit was the
Arotio circle. In a word, we were nearly
three hundred miles in a due north course
from Watertown, in latitude 47.
"Dinner was all ready. The party con
sisted of four persons Air. Cameron and his
assistant, who was also named Cameron,
LaMab MacDougal, a half-breed, and bis
son Beanceil. I dispatched the young Indian
after LaMountain, who came in after a mo
ment the absolute picture of wretchedness.
All that the cabin contained was freely tend
ered us, and wo began to eat. Language is
inadequate to express our sensations while
doing so. Tho clouds had all lifted from our
sombre future, and the 'silver lining' shone
all the brighter for the deop darkness through
which wo had passed."
Tho narrative concludes with an account
of their return to Watertown, N. Y. They
were conducted sixty milos through the
Canadian wilderness by Indians,
The Vigilance Committee in Louisiana.
We have already mentioned some of the
outrages perpetrated by a Vigilance Commit
tee in some of the south-western parishes of
Louisiana, and stated that the Governor of
the State had visited the infected district to
enforce the laws. The Attakapas RegUuroi
the 24th ulU says:
It was brought to the Governor's notice that
three of the victims of the "vigilants" had
died from the severity of the brutal whipping
inflicted upon them, that ono had been shot
end stabbed, that a number of other dead
bodies had been found in the prairies, and
that women and children were dying in the
prairies, whose husbands, fathers and broth
ers have been driven from their homes by
the "vigilants." A sad catalogue of crimes
are these, indeed, to be terpetratod in a civ
ilized community. Ana to cap the climax
of audacity, it is said that Judgo Simon has
been notified not to attempt to hold court In
the parish of Vermilion.
The Planler't Banner, of the same date, srtys:
The Vigilance Committee have publicly
whipped nearly seventy citizons of their par
ishes, In the heat of such a passion as is ex
hibited only by a wild and infuriated mob.
without judge or jury, and haveordcred them
to leave the State in five days or suffer the
penalty of death by the hands of the same
company. And we are credibly informed
thst a heavy vote of the committee, but not
a majority, was given in favor of hanging,
instead of whipping the proscribed company.

[From the Philadelphia Bulletin, October 4.]
The Broad Church Movement in Philadelphia
—Immense Meeting of all Denominations
—Thirteen Sects Repeating
the Apostles' Creed—New Phase
of Protestantism.
We happened, fortunately, to be present at
Spiphany Churoh, yestorday morning, and
were Interested much boyond our expectations.
Some time since, it appears, that at number of
our prominent elorgymen of different denomi
nations signed a paper, which was published in
all the religious and some of the daily journals,
the bearing of whioh was that they were
deeply concerned at the divisions among
Christians. They proposed that there should
be a concert of prayer for Catholio unity, on
the first Monday in October.
The Rev. J. W. Craoraft offered the Epi
phany Churoh, Fifteenth and Chestnut-street,
for a meeting of ministers at nine o'olook.
When we arrived at the ohuroh.at perhaps
twenty minutes after nine, we found it crowded
In almost every part with an audienoo of ladies
and gentlemen. This, of itself, at so early an
hour, on a week-day, was exoiting. looking
around we saw everywhere clergymen of all
denominations, and we have been told that one
hundred and fifty were present. Mr. Craeraft
presided, ministers of the churohes orowding
about him in and around thechanoel. The
Bev. Dr. Boardman, of tne Presbyterian
Churoh, (0. S.,) opened the meeting with
Srayer. Mr. Craeraft read from the Soriptures.
a then read a letter from Tt:i,n, nr.Ti.i..
-v AMWVJf iwuirwu
of Ohio, oordially approving the objeot of the
Dr. Notyfor half a century President of
Union College, Soheneotady, New York, of the
Presbyterian Church, (Old School) then rose,
with some assistance from Dr. Jenkins and Dr.
Duffield, of Detroit an exceedingly venerable
figure, with snow-white hair and leaning on
his staff, for he feels the weight of four-score
years, he addressed the assemblage a few
words breathing the spirit of Christian Union.
The Chairman then called upon the venerable
Dr. Humphrey, of the CongregationallChuroh,
late President of Amhorst College, Massachu
setts, who responded in a similar strain,
marked with much modesty as well as Chris
tian fervor.
The Rev. W. B. Stevens, D. D., of the Epla
oopal Church, who, as we understand from his
remarks, draftod the original paper, then ad
dressed the meeting, stating that he had not
imagined, when he wrote it in his study, that
suoh consequences were to grow out of so simple
and unobtrusive a movement. lie was fol
lowed by the Bev, Albert Barnes, one of the
signers of the paper, who carried forward the
meeting in the same spirit. . Prayer and sing
ing were interspersed at intervals. Dr. Jon
kins, of the Cavalry Churoh, Preabytorian (N.
S.,) made a vory earnest spoech as to tho ne
cossity of tho manifestation of the unity whioh
really exists among Christians, stating amoDg
other things that there is a cure for all existing'
divisions.
Tho most interesting incident of the meet
ing occurred at this point, an incident so far
as wo know, unparalleled in tho history of
Protestantism. Dr. Noviu, of tho Tresbyto.
rinn Church, (O. 6.,) roso and stated that tho
npostlos creed was ono of tho symbols of his
branch of the church, and it might bo of all
the churches represented, and proposed that
Mr. Craeraft should rojieat it as the croed of
tho meeting, all standing and joining in it.
Instantly every individual of tho vast as
sembly sprang to his feet. The Chairman
began: "I believe in God, the Father Al
mighty, maker of Heaven and Earth." Ev
ery voice joined him. Nearly two thousand
people Episcopalians, Presbyterians, Old
and Now School, Seceders, Covenantors,
Dutch Reformed, Gorman lloforuiod, Bap
tists, Methodists, Lutherans, Moravians, Con
gregationaliBts, Independents nil repealed
with tho simplicity of children thin grand
old formula which has coino down to us oh
the stream of eges "I believe in Uod, tho
Father, Almightyl" Even a ettlm spectator,
not easily excited, and standing aloof from
any enthusiasm of the moment, could not
but be moved. As tho "apostles' creed," so
called, is the only uninspired Bumniary of
Christian doctrine in which all thesechurches
believe, it seemed like an act of union of the
Churoh Universal. It brought startliugly.
and judging from the appearance of the con
gregation, all'eetingly, to every individual
the idea so much lout sight of, that in all that
is essential these Christians cut up into what
bio vaucu , aro in iact one.
Addresses and prayers followed from Rev.
Dr. Newton, of the Kpisoopal Church, the ven
erable Mr. Kennard, of the Baptist Church,
Mr. Alfred Cookman, of the Methodist and
Mr. Taylor, of the Reformed Dutoh. Mr.
Cookman mado the excellent remark that the
points in which Evangelioal Churches agree
are faots, while those on which they differ are,
for the most part, theories; and the latter made
a touching allusion to the funeral of the Rev.
Dudley A. Tyng.theformerreotor of Epiphany
Churoh. The last speaker was Mr. Wilder, a
Missionary from India, who dwelt upon the
interest whioh would be taken in this soene by
the missionaries all over the world. The large
assembly was then dismissed with the benedic
tion pronounced by the Rev. John Chambers,
the meeting, instead of lasting an hour, having
been prolonged nearly two hoars and a half.
A meeting, in pursuance of the same circu
lar, was held at Jayne's Hall, at four o'olook,
P. M. At this all were invited to take part,
the meeting in the morning being specially for
olergymen, though others were invited to be
? resent. The afternoon meeting was immense,
t can only be numbered by thousands. The
floor, platform, boxes, galleries, were nearly
everywhere filled with people. The exercises,
in their general tone, were similar to those in
the morning.
These meetings may affeot cur readers vari
ously; but no one oan help being struck with
them at indicative of a general and remarkable
movement connected with ths progress of
Christianity.

WASHINGTON, October 8.
Information has bean reenlvail V.r. tl,of . .
toon as Colonel Sumner heard of the attack on
tne eanta e mail, with its fatal results, he
dispatched a company of dragoons to the
Pawnee Fork, to punish the offending Indians.
Hopes are entertained that this prompt action
on the part of Colonel Sumner will resnlt in
the capture of the murderers and the resoue of
the passengers by the Overland Mail.
It will probably be found necessary to sta
tion troops at the Pawnee Fork, to escort the
mall thense to Cold Spring, and thus obviate
the reenrrenoe of suoh outrages.

An Actrbss in a Lunatic Asylum: The
Buffalo Advcrtiicr't local lately visited the
Asylum for tho Insane in that city, and thus
alludes to one of the inmates, Mrs. Mary Copp,
formerly woll-kaown as an actress, and the
wife of Mr. H. B. Copp, or Copland, formerly
one of the stock aotors in the Metropolitan
Theater. The editor says of her history:
When she came to this city she was possssed
of ample funds in her own right, out of which
a house was built and furnished. Her husband
was dissipated, and it is said that with all the
tenderness of a true woman she strove to win
him back from his excesses. It was all is vain.
Fault followed fault, and he finally deserted
her, leaving her heart broken and too ill to
earn a livelihood. Furniture and dress wont,
article after article, to satisfy the nrgont orav
ings of hunger, until insanity supervened
and the poor-house was a weloome home.

Ths Swiss Law Aoaihst teb Jiws. It an-

sir. j ay, tne representative or tne U nited States
at Switzerland, has just submitted a memorial
to the Bundesrath, requesting that measures
be taken by the Swiss federal government for
abolishing the illiberal laws against the Jews.
Mr. Fay has made a positive complaint to the
effeot that persons from the United States, who
are of the Jewish persuasion, are treated in
such a manner that it is in perfect violation of
tne treaty wnicn several years ago was made
oetween Switzerland ana tne united States.
