How to Navigate the Air.
A correspondent, "Vespertilo," writes to the
London Timet as follows: -" .'v,
I believe it can not be too absolutely stated
that balloons are, nnd must be, incapable of
being directed. They are, and must be en
tirely at the mercy of the air in which they
float. This is a necessary condition of their
buoyancy. AH the analogies by which in
ventor have been encouraged in the delusive
hope of being able to guide balloons are false
analogies. The rodders of ships and the tails
of birds have been rai;rruoted sadly. Ships do
not float suspended in one element alone, as
balloons float In the air. On the other hand,
birds are not buoyant, nordothoy guido them
selves by their tails. A ship docs not float in
the watM, but on it; and another element, on
which ehsdoes sot float, is that in which she
mainly mores. A bird does not float at all,
either in. the air or on it, in the proper sense of
that term, that is to say, it is not lighter, as a
balloon, is, than the element in which it movos,
but , immensely heavier. - The condition of a
fish nbtfer water is more nearly like the condi
tion of a balloon in the air; but there are alio
eseential differences. We may depend upon it
that if we are ever designed to navigate the
air it will be by a strlot adhorenoe to the prin
ciple, and a close imitation of the means which
have been designed by the Creator for effecting
the samwrpurpose in flying animals.
The problem of ferial navigation will never
bo solved until the principles of .flight are
clearly understood, nor until we recognise
precisely what nre the obstacles which prer
vent as from acting upon them by artificial
means.' ill is, of eouiee, poBsioie mat. inese
obstacles may prove to be iusuporable. -1 en
tertain a different impression; but, at all
events, they cannojt be overoomo until they
are exactly knowm I believe them, to be all
summed' tip in onelgreat deficit of our present
mechanioal knowledge-a lightwwti ve power.
I hae 'very little hope that, until a
lighter motivo power than steam is discov
ered, oarial navigation will be accomplished.
But even with dteam soruo experiment
might bo. tried which would test the priuci
nles of (light, and at least lead the way in a
right direction for the progress of discovery.

In default of any other means of dealing with

not be buoyant. I von this modified use of a
balloon is ocen to neat objection, because

A Strange Story.
Mr. Hector McDonald, of Canada, was re
cently on a visit to Boston. When be left
home his family were enjoying good health,
and he anticipated a pleaaant journey. The
second mornine after his arrival in Boston
when leaving his bed to drees for breakfast,
he saw reflooted 'in a mirror a corpse of
woman, lying in the bed from which he had
just risen. Spell-bound, ho gazed with in
tome feelintr, and tried to recognize the foa
tares of the comso, but in vain; he could not
even move his eyelids; he felt deprivod of
action, for how long he knew not.
He was at last startled by the ringing of
the bell for breakfast, and sprang to the bed t
satisfy himself if what ho had seen reflected
in the mirror was real or an illusion. Ho
fonnd his bed as he had left it; he looked
again into the mirror, but only saw the bed
truly refleoted. During the day ho thought
much upon the illusion, and determined next
morning to rub his eyes and feel perfectly
awake before he left bed. But notwithstand
ing these precautions, the vision, was repeated,
with this addition, that he thought he recoe-
niied in the corpse some resemblanoe to the
features of his wife.
In the course of the second day he received
a letter from his wife, in which she stated that
she was quite well, and hoped he was enjoying
himself among hit friends. As he was dovotedly
attached to her, and always anxious for ber
safety, be supposed that his morbid fears had
conjured up the vision he had seen refleoted in
the glass, and did his business as cheerfully as
usual. On the morning of the third day, after
he had dressod, be found himself in thought in
his own house, leaning over the coflin of his
wife. His friends were assembled, the minister
was performing' the funeral services, his
children wept he was in the house of death.
He followed the corpse to the grave, he heard
the earth rumble upon the coflin, he saw the
grave filled, and the green sods oovered over
yet, by some strange power, he could see
through the ground the entire form of his wifo
as she lay in her coffin.
He looked in the faces of those around him,
but no one seemed to notice him; he tried
weep, but the tears refused to flow; his very
heart felt as hard as a rock. Jinrngod at his
own want of feeling, he determined to throw
himself upon the grave and lie there until his
heart should hresk. He was recalled to con
sciousness by a friend, who entered the room
to inform him that breakfast was ready.
started as if awoke from a profound sloop,
although he was standing before the mirror
with a hair-brash in his band.
After composing himself, he related to
friend what he had seen, and both concluded
that a good breakfast only was wanting
dissipate his unpleasant impressions. A few
days afterward, however, he received
melancholy intelligence that his wife had
suddenly died, and the time corresponded
with the day he had been startled by
first vision in the mirror. When he returned
home, he described minutely all the details
of the funeral, he had seen in his vision, and
ther corresponded with the facta. This
probably one of the most vivid instances
clairvoyance on record. Mr. McDenald
knows nothing of modern spiritualism

They found a largo quantity of blankets, boots,

with largo blades affixed, and also discovered
duenmonts throwing much light on the affair.
Among them are the printed constitution and
by -laws of the ornaDi2ation, showing, or indi
cating a ramification throughout the various
(States or the Union, and they also found letters
from various individuals of the North: One
from Fred. Douglas, containing $10, from a
lady for tho enuse; also; a Jlettcr from Garret
Smith about money matters, and a check or
draft by him for $100, Indorsed by the oashler

a fuller statement of his operations. He says
that he rented the farm of Dr. Kennedy six
months ago, and the rent is paid until next
march. He never had over 22 men at the farm
at any one time that belonged to the organisa

to deceive tho parties who handled them on
the way to the farm. He says that he made

to go on unmolested. This mistake, he
seemed to infer, exposed his doings too soon,
