OAIRO, ILLINOIS. TUESDAY, AUGUST 31, 1875.
A Leaf from HIBlar'.
My twelfth ascension took plnce nt
Ironton, Ohio, May 21, 1872. 1 expe
rienced coiwlucrnbl trouble In lllllnjr
tny balloon tor this ascension. A strong
wind nt one time toro my supply pipe
open, necessitating n contldci nhle delay
and causing a number of breaks In tho
net work surrounding the balloon. I cut
my moorings about twenty minutes talc-re
twelve, and wa3 rarricd in a north
eaatly direction by it strong wind until 1
rose above the clouds ; there 1 struck an
eastern current which carried ine In that
direction. The balloon kept rilng of its
own accord, as the sun shone on It and
caused the gas to expand. When below
the clouds the balloon would lower, ns
the sun could not shine on it. i let gus
out two or three tlmc, iu order to keep
below the clouds, but the balloon seemed
to retain Its buoyancy and as
cending power. When I start-
eu the nutting arotinu tnc uniioon
was torn In two or three places, and
when I would tret above the clouds the
expansion caused the netting to snap like
me cracK oi a imtoi, wmic me oanoon
would resound like a drum. This caused
im in fwl virv uncoil'. nt.il nn that ac
count the voyage was devoid of the pleas
ure to mc that usually attends the trip.
The reflections of the sun, and what are
called mock suns, were without parallel,
beyond every thing I had as yet seen ;
and had I not been so concerned ubout
my netting cracking and breaking, it
would have been the finest Impression
and grandest view of tny life. The great
white clouds rolled In their immense
f-pace like bubbles of loam below n cata
ract, and almost, by their beauty and
grandeur, persmded me not to fear, but
the fearful echoes In the balloon
from the cracking of the netting
wo almost enough to paralyze
the stroncctt with terror and fear. In
starting l traveled last but alter striking
tne f.astcro current I fpoKO oi i went
till faster, as the upper currents always
travel faster than thoe near the cart
thoe near the earth.
After getting out of sight of Ironton I
prepared todcK-end. I had cro?setl tli
Ohio river two or three times, owing to
the mcanderlntrs ol the same, and now I
taw a smaller river, the Kanawha, and
concluded to try and make a landing
near it. as away from it I could see nothing
but a wilderness of woods. Ik-fore this,
however. I had been turned about bv the
currents till I was somewhat bewildered,
anu tnouL'iit i was coine vtcst wnen
I was really going East. When 1 pulled
the valve rope I tied it, in order
that I might descend nuickly, as I wished
to alight near the river. I made the
lnndinir about two miles from the river.
on Laurel Mountain, iu tho woods and
about two hundred feet from tho small
house of a mountaineer. Ills wilu and
children were very much frightened, but
tho man saia lie nau nearu oi "sucn
thlnRs before, and knnw what tuey
wcr, tnougn he liaU never before seen
one. Iu coming down I ttruek a tree
with my back, breaking off a limb that
was about eight inches iu diameter, and
was very much surprised to find tint I
had received no Injury. Then the bal
loon caught in the branches of a dead
oak tree, and swung me violently against
the trunk. I threw down to the man one
end of the rope and he tied it to the tree,
and then I flfd down it to terra Jtirma.
My teelings on once more reaching the
ground iu safety, after having passed
through the perils that beset me through
tho threatened parting of the nettings
(that at three different times threatened
to give way and precipitate mc to the
earth), can be easier imagined than de
scribed. My balloon was literally torn to
shreds. The man chopped down the
tree and helped me gather the torn frag
ments together. At the highest eleva
tion the thermometer sank to 34 decrees.
and when I landed went up to 68 de

and made nearly sixty mile in an air

Cortina, a tyrant when prosperous, Is
a coward, of course, when smitten by
mlsrorlunc. A letter-writer soys that
when the bandit reached the Mexican
capital ho was sadly dejected and wore a
woe-begono look. He was taken with
Mortcro and Portugal to fortPlattcloIco,
and, without bedding, slept on the prison
floor. Before Cortlna's arrival the
lort had been specially prepared
tor Ills reception and safe "keeping,
and a strong guard watches the State
prisoner. While tho Minister of War
loved Cortina very tenderly and address
ed him very kindly when the robber was

to the chieftain of Tamaullpas. While
the war minister Is thus guilty of alleged
duplicity, President Lcrdo is consistent
with himself and obedient to rules of
honor. He says the government must
bo a government, and rcs(iectd as such,
and that Cortina tnitst be punished.
It is a curious phase of this atalr that
Cortina is now owned to be a citleen of
the United States and, therefore, that
Mexico is not responsible lor his
misdeeds or lor the thirty millions of
dollars lost by Texans along the border.
With this apprehension of the facts it Is
said the United States authoritcs have de
manded the body of Cortina under t he
extradition treaty or the payment of the
thirty millions lost by Texans. It will
cost infinitely less to surrender the rob
ber, and if the demand, as here asserted,
has been made, Gen. Ord may
yet have the satisfaction of seeing
Cortina at the rope's end. If no demand
for the body of Cortina be made by the
United States, we arc told that he will be
tried at once and shot as soon as proper
firoof of any of Ids villainies cm be made
n proper form. Kcferrlng to these facts,
the Hrownsvllle Democrat says that

that not les than one thousand more
