the frail car about as big as a clothes-basket
and of the same material which depended
from the balloon. Flags were fastened to the
basket, and the aeronaut bade farewell to his
wife and child, and shook hands with a num

greeted him with hearty cheers. At this mo

doing buiiness in New York, was arrested on
Wednesday,. haVlng in his possession a large
quantity of furs, the proceeds of a burglary
committed about a mtfnth ago on the fur-store
of Mr. Reisky, in Third-street, ..Philadelphia,
whioh was broken into and robbed of furs to
the amount of $3,000. ' Soon after the commission-rof
the burglary the New York police
were telegraphed, and Olficers Elder. MoCord.
Slowey, and King; of the Detootive foroe, com
menced searching for the stolen property, and
they visited numerous auction-stores and
other places, and with some surprise noticed
that several of the eap dealers who had not
heretofore dealt in furs had supplied their
stores with them. Suspioion rested on Cohen,
and the foreman of Mr. Iteiaky's store was
sent for. . Cohen's house and stores wre then
searched, and $2,800 worth of furs, identified
as part of the stolen property, was found.
Some of them were secreted in the coal cellar
and garret. The trimming had been stripped
from the tippets, cuffs, capes, do., bat the pri
vate marks were not erased, and by these they
were identified.

A Whim Man Huntsd by RevkNasFDii Nt
aitois. George Hartman, who, by his action
in a recent so-called kidnapping affair, ren
dered himself obnoxious to the violent anti
slavery men of the Northern part of this
State, stayed in the Cleveland jail during
Wednesday night, not caring to trust himself
outside. The jail was watched by a party of
negroes who would have given him a rough
reception If be had ventured out. The next
morning about nineo'clock he left the jail as
stealthily as possible, in the hope of getting
to the New , England ' House, where he
boarded. Bharpeyea however saw him and
he was compelled to take refuge in Andrew's
Saloon on Seneca-street. ' These not being
permanent quarters he endeavored to escape
through the back yard, but was caught by
Andrew's dog, which would have speedily
disabled hiin if . he had not been called off.
Hartman soon made his escape thence and
succeeded in reaching the New England,
though closely followed by incensed negroes.
Here he armed himself and suffered no fur
ther molestation. - He probably left the eHy

Herald.

He is a man of the warmest sensibilities, and

indireotly pushing the brave old man and his
comrades into their terrible calamities. This,

The Eastern in the Great Storm
—The Little Western in a Norther.
A correspondent of the London Timet
from Holyhead tells a thrilling story of the
test the Great Eaitern made of riding out the
tempestuous seas that drove into that harbor
in the latter part of October. It may be very
well for the Thunderer to brag of what the big
vessels can do, and do do, that's what she
was built for and vessels large may find it
easy to "venture more" in the wide, wide sea,
rnt to keep near shore. But to the
Little Wettern in a Norther. We have not
given our experience. One of the Penny Preet
firm, not "our Andy," has been to sea.
The steamer Xajoo rianter, Captain Aaron
Fuller, on the 23d of July, 1842, left the
wharf of Cincinnati, bound for the Tobasco
River in Mexico; left New Orleans, August
28, and passed the shores of the United
States, at South-west Pass on the 29th or Au
gust. The little steamer, as fit for sea as a
sugar trough for a ferry over Maple Creek,
steamed it over a serene sea from the mouth of
the Mississippi to the coast of Sisal.
The little Cincinnati steamer, drawing, when
light, but thirty inohes water, was a gronter
novelty in the middle of the gulf than all the
f7reat Eaeteme and ffreot Vfelern that over
mounted half a doien waves at onoe of the
Emerald Sea. The glassy quiet of the ocean
depths was soon disturbed; the adventurers of
the Pork City were to pass the ordeal of a ter
rifie storm. Holyhead harbor may be a good
soene for the display of the powers of the
Monarch of the Trident on big ships, but it
oan't compare with the bar off Frontera for
"northers" that's the fearful word to ohafao
terize a storm on the Gulf. When Ossawoto
mie's name is mentioned on the banks of the
perilous Potomao, at Harper's Ferry, it does
not pale the chesks of the first or last fami
lies; does not create greater apprehension
among the oitiien soldiers than the word
"norther" does to the greenhorns at Bea in the
Mexican Gulf.
The raxoo Planter had a sea Captain to
direct the precious craft on the sea passage.
The "old salt" had never been ou the deiks
of a vessel so "frosh." He bad rode on hul ks
of cavernous hold, aud whose keels were Df
teen feet under tuo water line, and when the
Taxoo Planter hove in sight of the mouth of
Tobasco River, just before night fall of a
Sabbath eve, September 4, the weather
wise sea Captain declared the vessel must not
attempt to cross the bar that night, as a
"norther" was corning up, and the Bteamer
could not cross the sandy lino at tho mouth
of the harbor without beating on the bar.
A fill, top-loftieal sea Captain was not to be
fiinsaid by fresh-water navigators, who
new that most of the coal haviug been
burut, which was the only cargo of the
steamer, the little vestel would have glided
iutp the longed-for haven without rubbing a
barnacle from her unroppered hull.
I $ut cruel fate and Capt. Levy haddeoreed
the) Yazoo Planter should anchor outside, and
outsiilo she did anchor, and now comes the
record of her gallant braving of the pitiless
storm. A faint streak of crape-like mourn
ing cloud painted the heavens about Vera
Cruz, and we had but scaroe time to get out
anchors ahead and astern, whan the " Old
Brown'; clouds, which in a twinkling be
oame pitch dark, pitched with more than Oa
sawatomie fury upon the devoted heads of the
Western country bush-whackers of Yazoo
Rier, and then came a scone that the Thun
derer's correspondent poseeeeea not tho 'ade
quacy', to describe. Lo, the poor Indian,

I Soa captains might get Western steamboat-
uiea iu taa iruugu ui mo tea, ana snaae the
life almost out of them, but it was rcsorved for
tne aesperate energy, mstoncai learning of an
Engineer from Cincinnati, and one from the
woode about Maysville, Ky,, to exemplify in
desperate emergencies the truth of an old
adage that peace can be seoured by pouring oil
on the troubled waters. About two o'clock of
the morning, when human exertions promised
a failure, when hope from heaven was largely
at a discount, the two heads in the engine
room, as the vessel was heaving and battering
about in the brine of tho foaming sea, were
pat as near together as tho dusbiog of the
storm would allow them, and they agceed to
stagger along to the lee Bide of the steamer,
and pour a ton-gallon can of lard oil from the
door of the wheel-house on to the angry waves
beneath.
: The oan was emptied, and an ungrateful
shower-bath was returned upon the good-inten-tioned
but very muoh exposed engineers, who
were washed back into the engine-room. Not
minding the rebuff, this homeopathio dose was
not renewed, but an allopathic one of the
entire barrel of oil, obtained by us of Pollard.
Cfnolnnati alasl poor Pollard who did not
long survive to make so useful and paoido a
specific for allaying storms. The oil barrel iu
the morning was empty, the storm had passed
over, and the writer had the great gratifica
tion, on that beautiful Sunday morning, to
guide the vessel, as slick as grease, within the
harbor of Frontera, and land at the hospita
ble house of the American Consul.

Particulars of the Destruction by Fire
Palace of the Luxembourg at
Paris.
From Qalignanfe Meuenjer of October 20
we obtain the following particulars of the
burniogof the Luxembourg at Paris: ,
The fire was discovered by the sentinels
stationetl near the garden, who saw smoke and
flames bursting out from the cupola which sur
mounted the hall. The alarm was at once
given, and bodies of firemen and detaehments
from tho different barraoks were speedily on
the spot, aud chains of men fur handing water
haviug been organized, nine engines were set
to work.
Marshal Randon, Mlaiiterof War, Marshal
Magnan, Generals Soumain and Devil
liere, M. TroploDg, President of the Sen
ate, II. de Royer Vice-President, the Pre
fect of the Police, and M. Balestrino, Chief of
the Municipal Police, arrived soon after the
first alarm, and assisted in directing the opera
tions. It appears that the fire first broke out
nniier the roof over the hall, and rapidly ex
tended to the wood-work which supported the
cupola. The Palace, which is built on the
model of the Pitti Palace at Flcrenoe, originally
consisted of two main buildings, with wings;
busajafter 1830, in order to Increase the dimen
sions of the Chamber of Peers, a new building
was added on the garden side. It is in the
center one that the fire -took place. To feed
the engines, the only supply of water was, at
first, that of the basin in front of the Palaoe,
in the garden, and it was soon exhausted, bnt
a number of water-carriers were collected, and
they brought a considerable quantity.
After the fire had continued for some time,
pioeos of burning wood began to fall on the floor
of the Senate, through the opening by whirh the
chandelier was suspended, and these set fire to
tho wood-work below. At about four o'olook
the architect of the Palace announced that the
cupalo would soon fall in, and an engine
which had beeu carried up to a projeoling part
of the building, in order to play more effectu
ally on the fire, was withdrawn. This had
been scarcely done, when parts of the dome
began to fall, and in a short time the whole
of the oeiling was borne down into the salle
below. Tho large lustre, which to of immense
weight, fell with a tremendous orash, and
broke through the flouring of the. hall to the
ground floor.
Two firemen and two other men belonging
to the palace, who were employed there, were
buried beneath the ruins. They were soon
afterward got out, but were so seriously injured
that it was fuund necessary to remove them to
the hospital. The entire hall is a mass of
ruins, the desks and seats being either broken
to pieces or burnt to a oindur. All the galler
ies of the Museum, the Salle du Trone, the
Archives, the historical apartments, and the
library, oontainingnpwardof 100,000 volumes,
have escaped injury. An investigation has
been ordered to ascertain the exact causo of
the oobfkgmtion.
An Indiana Xlopkmkot Fbustbatid. A
young man attempted to run away with the
fair daughter of one of the swamp-landers near
Lalayetie, a day or two ago, without success.
The runaways, eaye the Courier, aimed to
make the oonneotion at Reynolds's and take
the afternoon express for Michigan City, but
the lutes were unpropitious. The train was an
honr behind time, and while they stood wait
ing ip anxious suspense, the father, anned
with a shot-gun, made his appearance, and
was about to execute dire vengeanoe upon his
would-be sou-in-law, when a bystander inter
fered in his behalf and spoiled an excellent
Item. The girl was induced to return to her
father's house, and tho young man is doing as
well as oould be expeoled.

Subpectbd Attempt at Slavs Insubbkctior
in Missouri.-The Waverly Vititor of late date
remarks t
On Saturday morning a letter dated "Saline
County, November 2d, 1859," was delivered
at thid office, in which wo are informed that a
large orowd of negroes (probably fifty in num
ber) were discovered in tho vicinity of Judge
McDaniel's, armed with hatchets, corn-knives,
&s, Several gentlemen, riding in the night,
oame suddenly en the negroes, all of whom
made their esoape, except the leader. This
negro laid Ihey had assembled together to hsve
a "big ratsel," but oould not explain the rea
son of their oarrying knives and hatchets. It
was thought by some that some white uian v as
at the head of the band, aud so soon as circum
stances would permit, they would huvo made
a united camieade.
Wo have the above from a responsible and
reliable gentleman ef Miami, and have thought
it prudent to notice his eominunioation, in this
brief way, that those who hold slaves may bo
cautious-and vigilant. A good patrol ought
to be kept up in every neighborhood.
Suspected Codntibfiitess Abbksted. On
Wednesday, Sylvester Elder, or Carter, and
Rons Renough, suspected counterfeiters, wcro
arrested In Portland, Ky. They had previously
left iu a barber-shop, in Louisville, to uvoid
detection, a roll of bank-notes and a lot of
medals. The bank-notes consisted of ono fifty
and two ten-dollar bills on the Bank of West
Union, Ohio; one fifty on the Mississippi and
Alabama Railroad Company, and one two on
the Layfayette Bank at Washington, D. C,
whioh banks having failed long sinoo, their is
sues are who lly valueless.
The medals are about the size of a double
eagle, and on one side of them there is an en
graving of the City Hall, New York, and ou
tho reverse an eagle, with a Latin inscription
at the top, bearing the date of 1851!.
A Firk-Annihilator Wobkino th Wrono
Way. Recently the factory of Wm. McFnr
lnn, In East Brandy wine, Chester County,
Penn., was discovered to Ije on fire, and, not
withstanding the efforts to extinguish the fire,
the building with its contents was destroyed.
The factory was supplied by what is known
as a "liro annibilato.'," which was immedi
ately applied to the extinguishment of tho
flamea, but unfortunately the expected ef
fect was not produced. The "annikilatur"
filled the room with carbonio acid gas, of nu
offensive character, whioh drove the work
men out of the building, obliging them to de
sist from efforts to extinguish the Humes.
The lout from the destruction of the building
and contents is estimated at between six and
seven thousand dollars, $2,350 of which is
covered by insurance.
A Jail Burnt A Pribonkb Psbisurs in

Organ, of late date, says: On Monday morn
ing last the jail in this town was set on fire by
a negro prisoner. Efforts were mado to furco
open the door of the dungeon, but to no avail,
even after the key had been turned, as tho
negro had fired the inside of the door itself,
the outside being ef iron, and so expanded by
the heat of the burning wood, that all efforts
to foroe open the door were incffeotuul, in the
short spaoe of time allowed. The flames in
the meantime had eaught the wood-work of
the floor, and other portions of the coll, and
were bursting out of the window, and with
the most horrid yells and screeches) of agony
the poor wretch expired. , ., .
