I am an old man now, but then is one incident liich occurred dur iuy; the course of my early life that I never Khali forM. I 'was only altout twenty years of ajre when it liajiM-ned, and the fearful peril ot that one occurrence caused many of my then hlack hairs to assume the tfi-ey of ae. j A well known leronant residing at j l., named Del.acy, was one of the I first of those scientific men with j whom 1 became acquainted after i my arrival in the city. He owned a I large elc-runt mansion in Hue , I and licinjf a great man among: the inhabitants, his rooms were almost constantly tilled with scientillc ex plorers, interested citizens and emi nent scholars of all grades. As he . was not a married man, he threw j npen his door to all, and patiently j answered and explained the niiiner ' 011s iiKjuiries that wereiroMitiiided i to him.

I was at til si surprised by this sliange proposalj l.-ut the thought of a delight i'ul joiu n -y of some t '."I'lil y miles between heaven and earth, on a pleasant day, was to me both novel and interest ing, and I n-aiiilv assented. 1'iUtastlie wind was not fa vol able that day, we postponed the journey until the next. DeLaey expressed his opinion that it would be a line day, ami that the wind would be in a northerly direct ion towards Paris. True to h: conjee: ure. ii was fa j vorablc. and by .s o'cloi k in the j morning, his- immense balloon. 'Comet." was being inflated in the spacious garden adjoining hi.s resi dence. Many of the inhabitants, w ho had heard of our intended as eel ion, had began to assemble on 'he grounds, and within three hours ioine three hundred spectators were present. finally every thing was in readi ness for the start, and the ropes were about to be cut loose. We had taken our seats in the finely fui'iishi d car. and were in excellent s;iirifs. in contemplation '!" a most splendid jouri ey. DeLaey had provided a sailiciein number o!' warm garments, in width we were to array ourselves when we reached that attitude where they w ould he needed to protect mils, pes from the cold. My friend was about to give the word to h i go, w hen a commotion was heaid aiming the as sembled crowd, and finally a tall man. dressed in a suit of deep black with the exception of a high comical white hat, emerged to V icw. shout I ing : " Hold! hold!"' 1 DeLaey made a elVect, ami as the preached the car, he gesture to that individual up asked : I " What do y ou w ant, my l " I understand you are lor Paris,"' was the replv . , " We are, sir." man T starting Have vou any obieeiion to tak- i ing a passenger an icionaut by profession J I desire to tnae n linal I balloon trip ere I leave for the 1'nit i ed Stales.

There was n strange vvihlness in his eye, which made me think of all the maniacs I ever read of. From the III sit glance I conceived a dislike for the man. A strange presentiment came over me that dai.ger was in store for iim ; ami when they hail reused talking, and the stranger commenced climb ing into the ear, so strong did that feeling become, that 1 would have remonstrated, but the cordial man ner of DeLaey partially extinguish ed the courage I had mustered to express my feam, and i lontented I myself with keeping the further cor- j ner of the ear.

H. rt is not my intention to make mention of myself, but it is perhaps my tluty to say that J have been an alderman, a mayor, a State Senator, a L'epresentative, a Senator of the I'liited States Senate, and now lam Vresident. What more do I wantt !. The Union party may jj'ito the devil. 10. My ambition is satisfied. First I was an alderman, then a mayor, then a member of a ? State Senate, then ainembei of the House of Rep resentatives, then a member of the I lined States Senate, then nt this limment I am President of the Uni ted States. 1 L Seward is my friend and I am Seward' friend ; Seward likes mo ami f like Seward ; Seward is a good fellow ami I am a good fellow ; we like each other.
