CAIRO, ILLINOIS, THURSDAY,
A BALLOON ON FIRE.
An Aeeenslon Shut Ftided lis A Com

(Columbia cor. of N. Y. Time.
In Honda, V. K. of Columbia, on Tu
tlity, May Of b, there bas Jnst been wltne.aed
a terrible scene, a balloon ascension, with
tragical result. A grand aerial ascension
was advertised to take place at 7 o'clock
on the morning of the 8th of May. Cards
oi Invitation were sent out to all the lead
ing citizens, and In tbis little town of few
diversion a great excitement was created.
Hunday afternoon an oven was built In the
center of the plana for the purpose of beat
Ing the air by which the balloon was to as
end, and all tot preparations wens Wafche J
by the people with great curiosity. There
were, perhaps, 2,000 persons intheplazt.
The balloon, a large one, wan inflated rap
Idly and successfully, and soon the aeronaut
appeared, brilliant In scarlet and gold and
sliver spangles, carrying in bis band the
Columbian flag. The ropes were loosened
and the balloon shot up like an arrow,
amid the shouts of the enthusiastic multi
tude, the blowing of horns, and the beating
ot drums the aeronaut meanwhile turning
on the trapeze and performing various gym
nastic Icat. It was a beautiful ascension.
In lss than a minute be must bare been at
tbe height of 2,000 feet, when the balloon
apparently became stationary. lie then
threw out the flag. We could scarcely dis
tinguish whether it was the flag or the man
himself; but the next second a smoke was
seen issuing from the side of the balloon,
and the unfortunate man had lowered a
rope and wss clinging to tbe end below.
Soiui one shouted it was burniug, and the
people suddenly became a mad men, run
ning and screaming, weeping and tearing
their hair. A gentleman tried to quiet
tbem by shouting, "It is not burning, it is
false, brute, animal, it is only the gis es
caping." But soon the flames burst from
the top, and pieces of the cloth began to
flout downward, the balloon descending
slowly at find, then rapidly until all hope
was over, unless he should touch the top of
the mountain, which is about one thousand
feet above the town. The spectators now
ru-hea in tbe direction in which the bsl
loon was supposed to be coming. In five
minutes tbe plaza was entirely deserted
with the exception of one poor lunatic who
began marching round and round the oren
which had furnUhed the fatal spark, chant
ing a requiem mass, at intervals stoping and
crossing himself. It wait pitiful to see biui.
In about an hour the crowd caroe slowly
back with the poor aeronaut still breathing
but insensible, with a broken leg and in
ternal injuries. He was seen by a man in a
field to pass directly orer the cross of the
chopel in tbe cemetery, almost witbin reach
of it, acro'S the Taller of the Quebrada
Sees, touching the ground half way up the
mountain on the opposite side, at out a
mile :.nd a ball from the point of starting.
He inut have retained bis senses tt tbe
very last. As he came to the ground be
cried, "Por Dion," and struck on his feet,
still clinging to the rope. The ignorant
mxn who saw him, having heard nothing of
tho balloon ascension, thought he had come
diree'ly from lieiven, and was frightened
and ran swny ai fast as possible, but meet
ing those in search ot him turned and con
ducted the oi to the spot. The unfortunate
man lived but a few hours, and was buried
the same evening.

Speaking of the liouse of Commons as a
most difficult and inexplicable audience to
please, Mscaulay asks, " What are you to
think of an assembly where l'eel is always
accepted and Mackintosh is not listened to?
where even Burke and Erekine were re
garded as dinner btl''' Sqw, what on
more minute investigation does this, which
appears at first sight so smart and te'ling,
prove really to mean? West is the estimate
thus epigrammatically recorded worth 1
Mackintosh was, ot course, a man of great
ability and acquirements, but he was pre
eminent in nothing, and Lord Dalllng, in
his portraits of eminent men, bas very
justly styled him " the disappointing man."
A Scotch Medico, with a good deal of legal,
literary and metaphysical knowledge, and
a good deal of Scotch brogue, has not in
him the elements of parliamentary success.
But no man was ever more perlectly fitted
lor the command ot the House of Commons
than l'eel. With a knowledge of finance
which was unsurpassed, with a power of
debate which every one was compelled to
respect, with a courageous spirit which
enable! him to discard the errors of his
party when be found they were errors, a
minister whose government fixed forever
the commercial policy of England on the
broad, just and immovable banis of free
trade such a statesman bad a paramount
and indefeasible claim to the consideration
of the liouse of Commons. That Erskine
failed in the liouse of Commons is true, at
it is true ef very many lawyer. At the
bar he was pre-emiucnt and Incomparable,
but a jury is an audience very different
from the House of Commons, and a man
may be admirable with the one who could
not obtain a bearing from the other. That
Burke fulled in the liouse ol Commons is
not true, though there can be no doubt that
he was often injudicious and endeavored to
address tbe house when it was in no humor
to listen to bis ssge and profound send.
roents. lie was, a- (ioldmith put it, one

And thought of couvincing while they
thought of Uiuing."

Mr. k. Douglas, an Kog'Uh wtiltrin tbe
Cape Colony, 8outU Africa, commenced
experiments about eight yesis ago with six
ostriches. ' lie bas now about three hun
dred on band, having told elghty-tve,
Each bird eatt about twenty pounds of Teg
ctsble matter pt day, and the net profit
from tbe tale of blrdt and feather It stated
at tm.OOO in the four Ism yean. The cost
ol the beginn'ng of the experiment Is not
stated. 1 he birds are hatched by artificial
meant, and the process require forty-two
days. In natural hatching one eg in ten
falls; in tbe artificial one la twelve. Tbo
work of raising ostriches' for their feathers
has also been commenced in California.
The enormous profits tempt experiment,
yet the changes of tsshion may on any day
make even ostrich feathers of little value
If any one who chooses can command a
plume, ostrich may degenerate into hen't
leathers in fashionable estimation.
