Struck after so many months, and as the most formidable

greatly in favor of Brazil. The Paraguayan fleet has the
Advantage of boing supported by land batteries at any

such aid. As the river is nowhere too wldo for such

ASCENSION OF PROF. LOWE'S BALLOON.
Great Crowd*?View* of Our Country
I'eulM-AttraetloH and Srarltatloa?
Auction Bale of Balloon Ticket*?The
Aaoenaton and Course Steered, dee.
Aocordlng to announcement, Professor Lowe's balloon,
the Quaker City, ascended on a voyage last evening
from the enclosed grounds, oornor of Ftfty.ninth street
and Sixth avenue, just at tha entranoe to the Park.
During the day great numbers of persons, as usual,
arrived on the grounds from all parts of the city, and by
the different public conveyances, to see the balloons that
are wont to astonish our country cousins by their siie,
and the use to which they are put. A great nambjj Qf
ascensions were made in the balloon "V^'ed States,"
which was held fast balow by meap ? rope. But as all
this baa b?o^^gorib?d before '.ffthe Hsuald there is no
Seed To travel over the same ground.
Between fbur and five o'clock the grouds were preUy
wall filled with as anxious and ourlowa crowd, who ware
desirous tease the ascension of tba Qoaker City. Many
of thaaa had see* the other balloon go up for eight hun<
dred feet or aa, held by a rope; but by (hr the larger
number bad never witnessed so stupendous a feat aa a
circular ship sailing in the air without the aid of either
eaila or steam; and many and <Mre were the conjectures
respecting tha fate of the aerial mariners who should
venture their precious lives at such a height as was contemplsted
above terra Jlrma, according to the notions of
some or the spectator*. One elderly tady actually informed
a younger one, who might have been her daughter,
that the balloon was expected to go up to the height of at
least fifty miles. "But," interrogated the young lady,
"suppose the gentlemen should fsll from such a height,
would they not be dead from loss of breath before they
reached the ground?" "Nonsense, child," said an old
gentleman who was with them, and was,
of course, the yonng^ lady's uncle; " at
the height of fifty ..milos they will be beyond
the earth's attraction, and may possibly hit the
attraction of the moon, and"?"Halloo, old gentleman,
you are treading on my corns," called out a young dandy
who was endeavoring to light his cigar with a match he
had just ignited. Here the colloquy ended; and perhaps
^profound dissertation on the practicability of reaching
the moon, with a description of the inhabitants, human
and beastial, and other matters pertaining thereto, was
cut short.
At length the time approached for the departure of the
Qnaicer City to the upper regions, when it was announced
tbat two tickets would be sold at auction to snch persoas
as wished to undertake the serial voyage. The first
ticket, on being put up, received at once a bid for $26,
which increased at the rate, sometimes of $10 and some*
times of $5 each bid, which succeeded each other very
briskly, till the tioket was knocked down-for $100, The
other Uoket brought $40.
Nothing now remained but to cast loose and bid goodby
to those below. This was soon done, and so easily
that none of that fuss was observed that formerly attended
a balloon ascension, when it was necessary for some
two dozen Uairs of sand be attached to the lower cords,
with a strong man to each. toholrt on and , to uuho^at
the right momout. Yeslerday there wis nothing of the
sort.; bflt, on the grapnel having been placed in the car,
and the voyagers having taken their places, at a glvi-n
signal the slight hold the bulloon had on the earth was
loosed, and she spared upward steadily and majestically.
Never was there an afternoon more favorable for an
aerial voyage. Not a cloud obscured the heavens from
horlion to zepitb, and the wind murmured in gentle
zephyrs. Indeed, the absence of clouds may be considered
as a disadvantage to the aerial voyager, as nothing
tends more to add (o the pleasnro of a journey heavenWK*d
than to pass through the cloud region, view the
clouds beneath you, and then, repassing them. And your*
self once mow between them and mother earth.
As the balloon rapidly rose from the earth an Irt sh
girl, who had witnessed with admiration several ascensions,
with a rope attached to the balloon, during the
day, exclaimed, "Holy Mother of Moses! what a pity
that such a oeautiful balloon should be lost!" She
thought it bad broken from its moorings and would never
return?never, in her absorption of feeling, in regard to
the thing, remembering the men who were in it.
On gaining an altitude of a few hundred feet the graceful
machine, undor the impulse of n scarcely peireptlble
breeze, took a northwesterly diroction, when it remained
poised in a'ir, almost without motion, the wind having
ccasod. A liirht brneze then snrurur un. which drove the
balloon over the Par*, whom, from some cause or other,
at preseut unknown, it began [9 jleaceod, with a gentle
motion: but on throwing out sAme ballast it rose again,
pursuing a coarse about northeast by north, and then
northeast, and having attained a height of about a mila
and a half tho shades of evening shut it out from terrostrial
view.
When the Quaker City was about descending in the
Park Professor Lowe was yetting ready the United
States to ascend tn her stead, himself in charge; but as
the former balloon regained her ascensive power he did
not carry out the intention.
TUB AMFHITHH AT Wt AFTER OA UK.
A large portion of the vaat assemblage that had
tlironped the aeronautic amphitheatre during the day
were induced, owing to tbo numerous at miction* offered,
to prolong their rftay long after the cloak of night
had wrapped tbe surrounding objects In It* sombre fold*.
The enclosure wan haudsomelv Illuminated with Chinese
and other lights, and the band played with as much skill
and vigor il had done during the entire afternoon.
Numbers of persons were constantly arriving and departing?some
desirous of vnwtng the city by gaslrght, and
others of witnessing the pyrot-^chnlo display. The scene
from tho aerial car at night is described as having been
macnlfirently grand, the iong rows of street lamps, when
viawod trom the giddy height, appearing like an army of
star* upon a dtp.tr porndo, and the steamers upon the
8ound and Hudson river seem all aglow, and appoar to
advantage against the dark background.
Ah soon as it was dark small paper balloons were sent
off at stated Intervals upon special service. Suspended
about two feet beneath tho miniature balloons were red
and blue lights, and these would burn until thoy had
reached a height of one hundred and fifty feet in the
air.-when they would throw out balls of variegated (Ira,
until soma of tbo sparks would set Are to the balloon,
when the display would be ended. Theae fireworks
go ng off In midair are quite a novel sight, and are alone
worth seeing. Wheu the paper balloons would ignite
the whole aoeue for a great distance around would he
lighted up with the Inrid glare, and in two or three
seconds afterwards not a spark would ba left to tali
where it had been. The gas, when onca ignited, makes
short of these paper globes. It does not stand
npon coremony With them, but finishes the business in
the most summary manner. Oua Immense blase and
they were no more.

Ths sultry weather of the pretuot month has had but
UtUe effect in keeping visitor* away from the Park.
From the following official figures it appears that about
fifty thousand people visited the Park each day during
the four days ending on the 0th instant:?
Pedestrians 60,430
Equestrians 1,873

the number of carriages increases ovory week.'
beat place to view the array of horseflesh and vehicle* is

the concert they are continually posting, sometimes
two and oocaaionally three abreast. Several of the
Park polloomen are on hand to keep tho stream
in motion, or, In other words, to make the
driven "move on:" and they do move ofl,
generally at a walk, although oocaaionally a spasmodic
effort is made to canter along at a little more lively
gait. There are barouches and britxkas, broughams
and buggies, aristocratic chariot* and democratic hackney
coach**, a four-in-hand drag, basket carriages, and
almoet every other description of vehicle exeept a Jaunting
car. The carriages, however, are but a aeoondary

principal charm to the moving briHiant scene, and
in many cases they drive a pair of high-stepping ponies

the Park. Mixed up among the carriages are a number
of equestrians. From the way in which some of their
horses jump around occasionally It U hard to say which

occasionally seen there onthorseback are decidedly more

The latter as a rule always sit uneasily in the
saddle, and appear to be momentarily in danger or leaving

Oar Northwestern Indian Tronblei,
TO Till EDITOR OF TUB HERALD.
More than three years hare elapsed sinoe the Sioux
Indians of Minnesota Ignored their treaties with the
United states and engaged In that murderous raid, un
paralleled in cruelty, during Which the frontier settlemenu
or Western Minnesota, Northwestern low* and
Dakotawere broken up, and more than a thousand defenceless
mfn, women atd children were slaughtered in
colj blood. -*" """ *
After a somewhat protracted struggle three hostile
bands were Toned to leavo the State of Minnesota, and
passed over to the valley of the Missouri, where they
succeeded in allying with themselves a large proportion
of the Upper Sioux 'rlbes of Dakota. Thus reinforced by
several thousand Indians, speaking the same language
with themselves, who for several years pact had shown a
growing uneasinssn and disposition to become troableMome,
they made common cause against the whites, and
have succeeded in setting at open defiance the authority
of the government in that entire region of country; and
to Jay they roam at will over Its vast prairies, If not unmolested,
certainly unsubdued ?nd unchastlsed.
Thoao persons who arcs not thoroughly acquainted with
the practical operations of the government in Its dealings
with these hostile tribes naturally inquire why It
Is that, with tho thousands of troops already In the
Indian country, with the fact before them that throe
campaigns havo boon made against theso Indians during
tho last three years, that these expeditions have bono
the largest and best equipped ever sent by the government
against the Indians, Involving as they havo dono an
expenditure of many millions of dollars, these hostile
bands have not been subjugated and compelled to lay
down Uielr arms, cense their hostility and acknowledge
tho aumority of the government.
Tho Unit thing to be accomplished, if you rosily desire
to subdue a^baud of hostile Indians, is to catch them.
This has never been done, save la one or two instances,
since the Sioux wore driven- from Minnesota. Our Indian
expedttloni have invariably moved from Sioux City,
Iowa, some time In June, accompanied with heavy
trains, and succeeded in reaching the country held by the
hostile Indians in July or August. After following tho
Indian trails and listening to Indian reports for a few
woeks they have returned about October, and again
gone Into winter quurters. At any time from the 1st of
May until the middle of November the IndianB can subsist
anywhere upon tho open prairies. Thoy can make
their own election?either light the troops or let it alone.
If they see tit to make a stand they can dose,, If they
pretor to break up into small bands and harass the
tlauks and rear of an army they can do so; or If they
choose to separate and scatter' over the plains in slnulo
families It Is perfectly safe for them to do so. With this
condition of things the Army of iho in itfl besl
days could no mpjl ^stlier these Indians together than
UiojMKMjfl tl?* blackbirds 0f the Western States. As the
advance tho Indians fall back, subsisting themselves
upon the game which they kill in sight of our.
men. This took place In tho campaign of last year. Alter
having led tho troops as far as they desired the Indiana
scattered, and left the army to retrace its steps to Sioux
City and reoccupy its old winter quarters. 9o Mr as
loss of men is concerned the Indians have decidedly the
advuntago? at least three to one.
From reliable information obtained from officers and
privates who accompanied tho exneditlons un tho Mis
souri in 1H03 and in 1804, I am sstisllod that both expe?
"-U8B? kill twonty-flvo Indian warriors. The
gtowfiig "T5p$FU of groat victories over the hrmtilo
Sioux may be necessary to kelp this grand military
forco In motion and grsttty the feelings of persons remote
from the scene of action; but the officers and men
actua'ly engaged In these expeditions laugh at these
paper battle*," aud treat them F'th that contempt
which their exaggeration deserves.
Our militair operations up the Missouri having thue
for proved a failure, it is natural to Inquire how, if at all,
theee savages can be reached and punished. There certainly
would be no difficulty In whipping thom if they
could be brought wtthin roach.
From some little experience in the Indian country of
the Missouri I am confident there is but one way of
getting hold of them, and that la to take advantage
of those elements the power of which the matchless
army of Napoleon could not withstand. Nothing hut
the buffalo can withstand the winter storms that sweep
over the great open prairies or Northwestern Dakota,
whore the Sioux Indians roam in summer. They are
compelled to seek shelter upon the heavily-timbered
bottom UnkIs of the Missouri and Its tributaries. They
there congregate aed spend the win tor, where they find
abandonee of wood and water and sure protection from
the storms.
Bvea If Its troops were to destroy a portion of the
lodges and provisions of these Indians during a summer's
campaign?as was the case In 1803?they have
ample time to replace them after the army leaves for
winter quarters in the settlements, and before the storms
of winter come unon the Indiana.
What the Indiana foar more than anything elM Is Juat
what the government should now do?order a winter
campaign. Let everything be got in readineea; put the
troops into the country where the Indian ia compelled to
take up hla winter abodo; have them properly equipped
and provisioned, and, above all things elae, let them nave
the right kind of officers. Thla being done, instead of
chasing theee hostile Indians ever boundless prairies in
summer, with cavalry and ox-teams, await their arrival
in winter, and then deal with them as their crimes
deeerve.
To fight and defeat them in the heart of winter is to
destroy them. Tlie Indian* know this better than the
white man. They have often expressed their feara of
being attacked in winter. Whonever oar Indian war on
the Missouri shall sasume this shape, two tbotmand good
mounted riflemen, under a practical, determined commander,
will terminate it and give us a lasting peace In a
aingle winter's campaign.
If this expensive war is to be brought to a successful
termination, and the obstacle* removed which its oxistence
lies llirown in the way of emii< ration to our Northwestern
Territories, thtf government should at once see
that a radical change Is effected In the method of its
pmpecutlon.
The officer who is ssslgned to the command of this expedition,
and all others connected with him, should
realise and sot upon the prinoiple that ikt I rat duty Is to
settle these Indian troubles and rnetore peace and security
to the citizens of oar frontier*, and not eondnot It
ia a mairnsr that forces upon the mind of the moat casta!
observer Dm conviction that personal comfort, aa eye
to the pocket, with more than the ordinary mxuriee of
social life, are exerting aa uadue inflweace to prolong
this expensive war.
It may be urged that a wiater campaiga la that eoantry
is fapraeticable on account of cold weather and the
storms incident to that region. To this I will reply that
where aa ladjaa ran live, with his scanty supply of food
and clothing, the well clothed and well fed white man can
live also. No rain falls there in winter, and usually but
little snow. The Indians' horaeg subsist throughout the
winter without hav or grain. White men have hunted,
trapped and teazped thero for many yean la the winter
season. A regiment of Southern troops spent the Isat
winter within sixty mile* of the camp where the hoetlle
Sioux were assembled. Two regiments of cavalry could
have utterly destroyed them, had they been* kept there,
Instead of felling back Ave or six hundred mllee, to Aloux
City, to go Into winter quarters It may be eald that
there were no suppllee ap the Missouri for the troope. I
will reply that toere wee no excuse for aot having them
there; for there were some twenty Ivo or thirty stoemers
at the qsrrlce at the commanding general, all of which
pasesd up the Missouri river. Many of them renained
there all summer. The great difficulty bae been tn the
plan of conducting this whole allklr. aad I am confident
that If the chaage above Indicated is edopted It will
eettle all of our Indian dlfflcultlee on the Mlseoari before
next April, aad save the government many millions of
dollars. AH OMERTKR

Tbe most uotabla event in coooectloo with tbat do umont,
and with the distress and popular discontent ??
prcvuUmt here, that I hare now to chronicle, is tbe fact
of a deputation of black men having waited upon his Kx

of presenting to him a series of resolutions passed at a
meeting or blacks in tbe parish of St David, about tlire?
weeks ago, recounting the grievances under which tliey

transmit to the Secretary or State for the Colonies The
deputation consisted of seventeen colored men, and wn
accompanied to "King s House" and introduced to bin
?xc?ileacy by tt? two representatives ror tbe parish m
tho House of Assembly.
Tbe Oovernor said tnat he waa happy to receive the
deputation; but although it waa his duty to transmit tho
resolutions they desired him to forward to her Majesty's

form them that he ctwld not coincide with thoM rtwolti
tloDB. Ho did not deny, he Mid, that then wu* Ai?4reaa
iu the country, but it wan not of the character described
in the resolutions. The distress (ha'. *?' felt was u<x
among the able bodied persons like the deputation thuin
K?lven, but among poor I mains of the towns of the island
If a large majority of the people wero to exert IhemselvoK
honestly in laboring for their daily subaistenoe thny
could with facility elevate themselves to a noc.al pos'tiou
which he wonld be glad to see them occupy. The peopl*
here, he remarked, were i-atlslled to work only for a lew
hours, and that being the case, bow could they e*poc? u
ameliorate their social condition? Iu other countries
where the peasantry were less favored by ciimato and
other facilities, they work from daylight to dark, auii
thus earn sufficient to place them without the pal*' off
want aud destitution. The Jamaica laborers had therefore
the advantage over other* abroad, wbuclt
advantage, however, they did not deem l?? appreciate
; am) he was 'therefore convinced tint
tliey could if I bey desired be In a better portitiiiu
than the laborers of other countries. There was laud
enough on the island which they could bay or rent wbieit
would enable them to carry on their own cultivation to
advantage.
In reply to these remarks tliedoputati.on -aid 'hat Itud
could not be obtained, as the p*asuntry wl lied it, ?tr

not now sell loss than several hundred arr h at * time
Besides, they <;ouId not grow their produce with safety,
an the cuttle of the. large proprietors wern allowed t"?

and if they succeedod iq recovering theif due, when tli-jj*
