Chicago, July 20. The Times to morrow morning will publish reports of the condition of tbe growing crop and the progress of the harvest, aa collected from all portions of the United States east of the Rocky mountains. The dla patche3 compr-i reports from over nine hundred counties. Of these reports the Times makes the following analysis: The wet weather of the past tvo months has re?ulted In an extraordinary growth of all kinds of gmes, con8Ciuntly the hy crop will be large in all parts of the Mt'H, and aa it has been very generally harvested and is therefore free from all danger of dainag", there need be no fear of a scarcity of hay. Wheat has been haivested in the section lying south of tbe forty-fourth degree of latitude. In Wisconsin it is much above the aver age in quantity and quality. In Illinois and Indiana some damage has been dflne to the crops by rains, bugs and other causes, bo that the yield will not probably exec-ad three-fourths of the av erage. In Kansas, Nebraska, Minneso ta and Iowa, the reports show that the crop will be largely in excess of last year. In tbe two first named States, the depredations of the grasshoppers have been compara tively insignificant, and unless some un looked for calamity occurs the producers will realizs a far greater return for their labor tnan ever before. In Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Missouri, and the east ern States there is every prospect of a far better yield than heretofore, and the production will be far in excess of tho consumption. Tne product in these States is represented as being much supe rior in quality to that of former years. It is notable that for the first time in twelve years tne south will raise feufli cient breadstuff for home consumption. This will, of course, relievo the north of the necessity of ship ping grain in that direction, and enable us to supply the deficiency in the European markets. Oata promise an extraordinary large yield. In some sections the heavy rains that have fallen recently have lodged the grain some what, and the chiuchbug elsewhere has fR!ipl some damaire, but there is every indication that the yield will be at least fnrtv-five or fifty tusnels to tne acre, and iu many sections much larger. Rye and barley promise wen. mese crop3 nrn not extensively srown, but there Is every indication that the supply will be not yet matured in the northwest. Iu Alabama, Miseissippiikorgia, and some parts of Arkansas and Tennessee, the crop has been harvested, and is more abundant than for many years. In Illi nois, Iowa, Missouii, Onio and Indiana tup cron is backward, but unless frosts ehould occur previous to the middle of September, mere is no reason to appre hend a short crop. In Minnesota, Wis consin and Michigan tho backwardness of the crop is such that there is littlo iOTe of morfe than half a crop, but as tbvse States raise but little corn the diminution of the crop there will have but little influence on tbe supply. Potatoes will yield a full croi in "ell ee3tioDs. The Colorado bug Is on) v seen for the most part in the east ern States. In the west it has disap peared, having oeen i.lmost entirely ex terminated by the heavy rains. Some complaintsof its depredations comefrom points east of Ohio, but none from the west. The reports of the cotton crop are exreedingly favorable. The armyworm. so destructive to the plant, has appeared jn but faw section?, and has been deter red from active operations by the weath er; coneequetly the cotton product of' Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama- Georgia and Virginia, will be the largest ?ver produaed. The plant i3 flowering in even the more northerly latitudes.and in ibe extreme south pick log has commenced. Planters are san guine of a splendid crop, and as there has been no trouble with negro laborers there will be no danger of loss from in complete harvesting'. As to fruit and vegetables dispatches are not very full, but as these products supply but a tem porary want, and there is no complaint of failure, there will be probably enough. THE COTTON CROP. New Yokk, July 17. M'KIUop & Sirague Co. this week summarize re ports from neatly two hundred different points, the m jnity of them being in tho Slates cf x'ennnessee, Kentucky, Iowa and Illinois. The others are scat tering, being chitlly made up of further advire3 from places previously reported. Tennessee reports are highly favorable of all crops, except fruit, which is in many places a failure, and in none a full average. The cotton-growing jwrtions of the State report th crop backward, but in good condition, and promising well. Iu the region known as the upper Cumberland valley our advices state the promise is " the moit abundant harvest with which our people have been bleeged in manv years. Some think that with a continuance of favorable weather the corn and tobacco crops will double any thing done in any year sln;e the close of tho war." The area under cultivation La been increased in almost every county cf which we have a report, and in every case the report is that excellent crops, eepeciaiiy o corn and tobacco, may be expected. The wheat crop has been harvested, and tho quantity and quality exceed an average. One corre npoudeiit writes: "Peace and plenty, and a general recuperation from the tllect of hard tim-e' in prospect." An other wriies: There is a batter feeling among parties generally. Free labor is becoming every year more reliable and satisfactory." Kentucky advices of the fruit crop are quite unfavorable. A few counties re port a light crop of wheat, and some think that in portions i f tbe State so much rain has fallen a.s to endanger the corn. Otherwise that crop promiees a Urge yield. In central and southarn sections of the State the reports are very encouraging. Some portions of the State buffered lat-t year from drouth, but uoee portions this year promise, with rau exceptions, the best crops iu many vears ue reports for the State seem to be for af.' cereals a full average, while fAvorable wither would raise com largely above ab" average. Iowa produces chlJlv wnrat. corn and oats, and the prospecu for hiavy crops of thete were never better lhan they ha' been up to a very recent date. Heavy and continued rains have boon falling for tlie past ten or twelve days, over at least half of the State, and the farmeis aro becoming alarmed. The groun ' was very dry when the rain ,-omraenced, but should line, dry weather fremiti now. the crops would be luxuriant. Snould the rain continue, however, ten or fifteen days longer, the would bs considerable. Only two nunties, Chickasaw and Fremont, , "d absolutely unfavorable reports, iu the letter high winds, grasshoppers, hail and iKiu: have injured the crops forty to fifty per ictl't. Illinoih repoxts a good deal of rain re cently in some portions of the State, which have pievenWu' farmers cultivat ing the corn as much af they desired. The consequence L, it has bacflme some what weedy. Corn having brtxwui a good price last year, farmers have planted largely this year, ami should the tine weather which has begun cot-fjnue - rouwle cf weeks, the yield of the State will be above an average. The wheat cutting! about over, and though some was cut in the rain, tbe weather having Cleared up it will be saved tU good con dition, and will be a good crop. Fruit, all over the State, is deficient. Oats harvested and a full crop. Jefferson, Randolph, Hnmilton, and aorne othtr counties, advise that tbe wheat harreet la over, and the crop tire linen ever lalswi. Hay throughout the State more tuan a full crop. From some few places the report of the wheat crop Is not favorable, but thee are more than compensated for by the very large crops in otiieretctloas. From Miceissippi the repsrts of the cotton crop continue favorable. The corn crop is now made, and is the best for many years. From Alabama the advices are equally favorable, except that In soma, places long-continued dry weatl.er lias short ened the crop3 to some extent. With tlie sxceptlou named, the prospects of the State are better than for many years. From Nebraska and Colorado we learn that everything looks splendid since the grasshoppers lef- Tne corn planted af ter the exodus is djing finely, and if frosts do not couieearlicr than usual, the evil result f the plague will not be one fourth what was anticipated. From Texas we are advreed the grain crops continue to maintain all tbe"grett expectations" which wereentertained re garding the yield, and shipments have been made to the coast and Missouri. From E'lis county we learn that the "web-worm" Is damaging tre young cotton, but this is the only county in the State from which damage to the cottoii crop is reported.

About half one o'clock this morning the building, 150 Fourth street, near Elm, occupied by Black k Co., printers', and W. W. Donaldson, lithographer, was destroyed by fire. Their joint loss is about twenty live thousand dollais. At three o'clock tbe walls of the building, which bad not fallen from tne eifect8 of the fire, were all thrown, down by the explosion of the gas, and some seven firemen, with Chief-Engineer Megtue, were buried under the debris. Cnief Megrue was in the second story and bad just called for a crow-bar when the explosion occurred. A general alarm was immediately given, and the whole fire department was soon on hand and at work searching for their unfortunate companions among the mint. At four o'clock Chief Megrue'a voice was heard calling for help. The tire blazed up anew at this time around the buried firemen, but the hose was soon brought into play, and the new dancer averted. At half-past four o'clock Chief Megrue was taken from the ruins insensible and in a badly bruised condition. His injuries are not thought to be fatal, however. Of the firemen, James M'Cormick was the first to be taken out of the debrii. He was badly bruised and burned. It is feared his injuries will result in death. Dennis and John Pohlman were next rescued, slightly injured. Captain Henry Schild myer, E. S. Spencer and Richard Hol comb fell from a five-story ladder, but escaped with slight injuries. Lse Slocum is thought to be fatally hurt. Three men on the pavement were severely injured from flying missiles. The loss at the Fourth-Btreet lire this morning is much larger than at first supposed.

Dick Holcomb, of the No. 3's, was found dead in the ruins. His body was horribly torn and man gled, it being broken in two just below the breast. At last accounts Chief Me grue was doing as well as could be ex- Eected, and his physicians have hopes of is recovery. He is wounded on the head and has severe bruises on the thighs and If gs, but is conscious and resting more quietly. M'Cormick, of the No. 4's, cannct recover. He had ouo side of his face knocked off, and is injured worse than supposed this morning. The rest of the injured are doing well. Chief-Engineer Megrue, of the fire de partment, who was so severely injured at the lire this morning, is reported to night as resting easy. No bones are broken, as previously reported, but he has a severe scalp wound, and suffered severe injuries on his body and right hip. There aro no indications of internal inju ries, but he suffers severely from nervous prostration. Tho streets in thevicinity of his residence have been covered with tanbark, to deaden sound and give him rest.

We have yet to learn the full ex tent of the advance. Before the heaviest rains there was an occasional rise of la. to 2s. Last week's sales were only 3124 quarters above those of the same week in 1874. Every market is so scantily supplied that we seem to be on the bor der of exhaustion, though from the lowest point our averages show a rise of only 3s. 6J. In Belgium and Holland there has been a moderate rise; even in Germany, with good prospects, prices are somewhat dearer, while in Hungary, where the crop is enormous, they are also dearer. The council of delegates from all tha Presbyterian churches ia Christendom met in Regent tquare to-day and opened session. Many representatives of Amer ican and Canadiau churches were pres ent.

Chicago Courier, l'lb.j The balloon that was sent up by Bar num on Thursday evening, freighted with Professor Donaldson and a Journal reporter, up to two o'clock this morning had not been heaid from, and it la feare t that the air ship met with some acci dent auring tne severe storm tbat pie' vailed about one o'clock Friday morn ing, ana tbat tbe aeronaut and his pas f etter thereby lost their lives. Intense excitement prevailed throughout the city yesterday, and all sorts of rumors were in circulation. One report safely lauded the aeronauts in the pineries of micnigan, ami soon anotner one would be in circulation to tbe effect that the balloon, with its passengers had gone into tne waters or lake xiicbigan "Wht news of the balloon? ' was the question on every side, and all day long the telegraph stations and newspaper oinces were tnrongea witn seekers after the latest intelligence. When last seen by the thousands who witnessed the ascension, the bal loon was traveling across the lake in a northeasterly course. The only intelligence afterward received came from Captain Anderson, of the schooner "Littlo Guide," which arrived in port yesterday morning. The men on the schooner say they saw the balloon about seven o'clock on Tnursday eve ning, about twenty miles oil Gross Point, a projection some twelve miles north of Chicago. It was then traveling in a direction northeast by north, in about a due course for Muskegon, laud in that direction being about one hun dred and twenty miles distant. When first seen, the balloon was skimming along close to the surface of the lake: then it rose to quite an altitude, and then it came down close to the water, and was thus skimming along when last seen. The sailors say that the balloon seemed to be in bad condition, as if it would not be able to remain much longer in tne atr. Professor Steiner, an experienced seronaut, now at the Commercial hotel, declares that the balloon was "a crazv. patched affair, that any ordinary gale would tear into finders." He furtcer more stated that two thousand feet of gas would escape from it in an hour, and that the weak and rotten thing never couiu stanu a voyage or two nun dred miles the distance from laud in the direction the balloon was in when last seen. He regarded Donald son as an experienced but reckless tcronuut. Bar nu m and his attaches mink that the balloon was in good trim, and they all seem confident that the voyagers have safely landed in some locality remote from tne telegraph. All admit that Professor Donaldson thoroughly understood his business, and was an even, cool-tempered man under the most critical circumstances. Mr. Thomas, Barnum's pres3 agent, when talked to last night, predicted that all was well with the voyagers. "Donald son is equal to the emergency," remark ed Mr. Thomas, "and no Lake Michi gan, emergency can master him. He vr is In a terrible gale on Lake Ontario, sonic time ago, and came out all right. Danaldson and the reporter will turn out all right." The terrible gale on the lake,on Friday morning, shortly after midnight, must have played havoc with the balloon if it was in the air at that time. The storm is pronounced by seamen to have been one of the severest for many a year. If the seronauta were on the lake during the prevalence of this storm, the chances are tbat the air-ship was swamped, and that the voyagers lo3t their lives. Even if the balloon was over dry land when the squall struck it, a fatal catastrophe could scarcely have been averted. The storm, in the opinion of scientists, ex tended far into the upper atmosphere, father up than the balloon could have gone. The theory of those who were confident that the teronauts are safe and sound, is that the balloon was carried over into the woodland district of Michigan, and safely landed there before the storm opened with its fury; that the landing was far remote from any telegraph sta tion, and hence this continued silence. The Courier last evening sent to various telegraph stations in Michigan, asking for intelligence, but the only reply re ceived up to two o'clock this morning has been " no balloon seen or heard from." General Stager, of the Western Union line, sent messages to all tho oili ces where there was a possibility of re ceiving intelligence; but not a word was received in reply. The great fear is that there was not sufficient gas in the balloon to make tbe long trip of over two hundred miles across the lake, or to have carried the balloon, if still in the air at the time of the squall, to a sufficient elevation to have avoided the dashing, driving wind. Prof. Donaldson, when he started on the trip, evidently had apprehensions of the perils before him, as he remarked tc a friend just before the balloon waa freed, "Would to God I waa not obliged to go on this trip." THE LOST VOYAGERS. Prof. Donaldson has been engaged in serial voyages for the past ien years, and prior to his last trip had made one hun dred and thirty sixsuccessful ascensions. He is thirty-six years of age, a south erner by birth, and a widower. It is officially stated that fie was engaged to be married to one of the lady riders in the Hippodrome. The reDorter who nUrtil nut. with him, Mr. Newton S. Grimwood, i3 said by his associates to pos .S9ss great cour age, and that he has always shown steady nerve in trying situations. Mr. Grimwood is twonty-two years of age and unmarried. He is a native of Ken dall county; wa3 for some time con nected with the Joliet &nn, and only came to Chicago and conneoted himself with the Journal a few weeks ago. TELEGRAPHIC CLIPPINGS.

These ad vantages he utilized by teaching fora short time a day school, of which his younger brothers and sisters constituted mainly his nuplls. His learning was ot a character so critically accurate, that as teacher he was en abled to lay the foundation ot a common school eduation in the minds of his five brothers, from which they advanced to suc cess in their various vocations, as farmers, merchants and in tho learned professions.
