Hall, kj Hta. Schuyler Colfax?An
Overland Tonr Aertw tlie Continent.
Washington Hall wus weH flllSTUS
evening with a very intelligent and ap
preciative assemblage of our people,
brought together to hear the lector* pf
Mr. Colfax, on bia famous trip "across
the continent." The honorable gentle
man was briefly Introduced by A. W.
Campbell, as the late Speaker of the
last Gbngress and as one of the eloquent
and conspicuous friends of West Vir
ginia In the days of her struggle for
admission Into the Union ss a new State.
The large audience gave Mr. ColEax a
hearty indication of the welcome with
which they greeted him, after the sub
sidence of which he proceeded with a
cursory outline of the lengthy and haz
ardous tour which ha had made through
the extremes* limits of our Western
A large portion of the lecture consisted
of a highly Interesting and racy sketch
of his travels, abounding with geograph
ical and historical tacts and incidents,
and constantly Interspersed with the
most vivid and eloquent disoriptiona of
the many localities visited during his
long Journey. ,
He spoke of having long cherished a
desire to visit the old world, but be final
ly concluded that as an American it
would be wiser first to see more of his
own native land and learn from observa
tion something of its vast extent and
resources. The termination of the strug
gle that preuerved this great country a
unit, seemed a tilting opportunity
The trip began with a stage ride of
2 000' miles across tbo mountains and
plains almost uninterrupted, and ended
" with an aggregate of iy,000 miles.
In closing his account of tho Mormons,
Mr. Colfax spoke of his plain talk t*}"1
Hrlgbam Young on polygamy. That
worthy acknowledged that their special
church creed prohibited polygamy, and
lis only sanction was a direct revelation
to Joseph Smith, and a direct command
to himself. Mr. Colrax replied that
polygamy was the weak point In their
faith; that It arralnged civilisation and
Christianity against them ; was Illegal,
and that it was now time for a oonnusr
revelation prohibiting It. Young sur
prised him by saying that ho (bsslred
such a revelation, hut asked If they
would not also bo required to give up
ths Mormon Bible. Mr. Colfex replied
that the American people believed in
civil and religious liberty, and would
not interfere with their form of ecclesias
Tho ton? of tho conversation Impres
sed the party with the belief that the
new revolution would soon be a neces
Hity, und that Brlgbsm Young felt and
knew it;"but the street and newspaper
comment on this conversation was bit
terly and deUantly against any abandon
ment of tho plurality system.
Whether Mormon wives .were happy
or not, Mr. Colrax could learn only
from Oentllo sources: but Isdles of re
spectability, who had social Intercourse
with Mormon families, found beneath
tho lifted veil of religious faith, deep
discontent, painful regrets fbr the hap
mony of monogamio marriage, and
fearlul forebodings lest jealousies or
new attachments should rob them of
the respect and love due from their hus
bands. What was the remedy. Toler
ation encouraged polygamy. The
church, controlling the Territorial Leg
islature, shields it, and the problem ol
extirpating it la dlMcult or solution.
Obedience to the laws alone will secure
its abolition; trenching not on their re
ligious faith or church organisation, but
on their jlroctico of What civilization
and the taws detluo to be u crime, the
Mormons must learn that there U a
limit to assumed revelations; that the
Government cannot tolorate a revela
tion to commit murder, arson, bigamy,
or treason, in deflanceof Its laws. This
clear line of distinction between tolera
tion of religious raitli and toleration of
crime must be drawn. II is now being
drawn by the Mormons themselves,
and sccoder* In largo numbers are lea v
'"if he'speakor passed over their embr v
otlc State Government, and their nrm
lugand drilling, ostensibly to light the
Indians, as likely to result in revolu
tionary deflanoe, If the Government
maintained an ample military force on
the overland route. He closed this
branch of his lecture by saying that the
plain and palpable duty of the Govern
ment Is to repeal the entire polygamy
taw, and tolerate plurality In all terri
tory subject to Government authority,
or enforce the taw and tolerate It no
where. leading United Btates officers
In Utah practice polygamy. No man
should hold an oOleo under the Govern
ment whoaolawabe vlolatea. No polyg
amic should be a Government contrac
tor. Mining, which Is nnder the Mor
mon ban, should beencournged, Tor the
mineral wealth of Utah la Immense, and
the minora are snti-pplygamlsta. A?
the speaker Jocosely said at Salt Lake,
that was the first place where he had
found tlieaalnta all slnnersand the Jews
all Gentiles. , ?
Evangelical Churches should be es
tablished and austained there. The
members of tho Territorial Legislature
should be required to take an oath of
obedience to the anti-polygamy taw, as
a test of their eligibility to act as such.
Ths Homestead taw should be open
onlv to those who obey all the laws of
the Republic. These earnest measures
takeu and the Pacific Railroad built,
carrying a tide of Immigration Into
Utah, the speaker believed the whistle
of the locomotive would sound the re
auiem of polygamy and the pickaxe of
le miner dig its grave. Utah with lta
Immense advantages would be re
deemed, and Salt Lake City become the
great dty of tho interior.
The route traveled by Mr. Colfax to
California lay on the contemplated line
of the Pacific Railroad, and' of courao
he oould not but reflect on the feasibili
ty and utility ol such a road. Always
an advocate or the enterprise, he wsa
more convinced than ever of its Incal
culable necessity As a bond of union
strength between the broad ex
tra ineaof our vast country:. It Is a na
tional neceasltyto have adequate moans
of safe and apeedy transit between its
different sections. As it Is now, pas
sengers and freight are compelled to
Journey as far aa from Boston to Liver
pool and back across a foreign oouutry;
through unhealthy latitudes and at en
ormous expense. It Is a political ne
cessity in order to preserve linrmony
and unity of interest; it ia a military
necessity, for if this country ever be
coniee engaged In war with England
or Franoe, the whole Pacltic Acres
would become the prey of the \
enemy. Jt W& ^om^erclal ne?j?iilty,

In regard to the practicability < of the
route, Mr. Colfax spoke from actual ob
servation, and said fbr the first third of
the way the grade is substantially made .
by nature. In the next, third the dlf
floultlea across.. tho mountains4 lire no
greater than were surmounted by the
Baltimore A Ohio Railroad. While the
last third from Salt Lako to the Siearras,
a route is practicable by the valley of
tho Humboldt. He spoke of the rapid
hold of In earnest. The completion of
the road seems to be the first and last
first and only hope of visiting their for
mer home, and Irion da. It is no doubt
a aublect of prayer as well as specula
tion. They speak of the Atlantic States
as their bo maraud long to revisit them.
It was this love of home which so .ef

or Davis was not long since all paid
over to General Wilson and hlc party. I
Owing to the large number engage In
hunting down Booth and hlsasBOcialm,.
it was more difflcnltto tell to whom the

consequently appointed a oommittee to

enough have been characterised, if Pro

Chaaan u son ffouf. The notion can only
be termed a strange freak on the part of
the bridegroom, -which "was acquiesccd
in by his complaisant bride. The lady
was at first strongly opposed to the no
toriety, inseparable from the affair.
After considerable correspondence
(between the contracting parties the
1 negotiation was completed, and then
Prot Lowe set about making the neces
sary arrangements. The first thing re
quisite was a suitable car, and he forth
with ordered one of the largest wicker
balloon cars ever constructed in this
country, capable of seating six persons
comfortably. This car was moat superb
ly decorated, being furnished, with new
Brussels carpet, damask cushions, lace
curtains, and a blue silk canopy, mak
ing a tout ensemble at once rich and apr
propriate. The coat of this beautiful
balloon car was 9500*
At an early hour yesterday morning
theprocess of inflating the mammoth
balloon "United States" was com
menced, and it continued in slow pro
gress for several hours. The time fixed
for the start was two p. m., but the want
of common gas from the gas works
Srevented punctuality. As the hour
row near for the balloon to ascend,
great crowds began to assemble in the
vicinity of the ceronautlc enclosure,
corner of Sixth avenue and Fftyininth
Istreet. The neighboring rocks and
T houses were covered with impatient
spectators, and the slight eminences
throughout that portion of Central Park
were black with visitors, all desirous of
catching a glimpse of the wedding party
as they soared above their heads. In
side the enclosure every available seat
was occupied long before the appointed
time?the majority of those present be
Aa the sphere of the balloon rose
above the walls of the amphitheatre, in
the process of inflation, the crowds out
side increased, and the box-keepers
were kept busy. A steady current of
visitors continued to pour in, despite the
want or seats. Those arriving lata de
scended to the platform and clambered
upon the rocks which form the sur
roundings of the incloaure.. In the
centre was the platrorm, and over it
labored uneasily the gradually growing
bulk of silk and vapor destined to car
ry the voyageura through mid-air. In
front of the staircase was erected a neat
evergreen arch, prettily decorated with
flowers typical of the interesting event
soon to take place. Over the arch hung
the words, "Ever Thus;" in evergreen
leaves. From the arch to the car of the
balloon waa laid a carpet, flanked on
olthor side by growing cedars.
?WAITING TOR THE BBUffi.
Two o'clock and the balloon seemed
to be rapidly filling, and yet ho bride
or bridegroom made their appearance.
People walked' about and viewed the
! balloon from every possible point;th'ey
also visited the black bear up in the
rocks, who waa very fat and quite soci
able. In fcct, those present whlled
away'the time as best they could, until
the start. They found, by eager In
Sulrles, that everything waa favorable;
lat the day waa calm,' the wind did
not blow seaward, the bride was in per
fect health and Jfull of bravery, and so
the spectators patiently waited, receiv
ing every minute fresh accessions to
their already crowded ranks.
ARRIVAL OP TJIH WEDDING PARTY.
Imperceptibly tills, the elasticity Is
more upparent, and the time fixed for
the departure is long past. Suddenly a
stir is observable, aua in a minute the
large gate at the rear of the enclosure
opens, and two covered carriages drive
In. These vehiclesarequickly surround
ed by the people In the ground, while
those in the balconies above becomo
agitated and nervoualy excited. In a
very short time the carriages approach
theplatformund the bridalporty alight.
The bridegroom is a tall, well featured
man, and his bride is fully as good
looking as rumor said she was. She
appeared a little .flurried, but evidently
determined not to withdraw nt the last
stage of, the proceedings. The bridal
palrweire accompanied by the Profes
sor's family and Mends, all looking
well, and no more flurried than the cir
cumstances would seem to warrant.
It was a part of the programme that
the marrago ceremony should, be per
formed on the platform just previous to
the start. But this part was changed.
The couple were quietly married in.one
of the parlors or the Fifth Avenue Hotel,
berore leaving for the baloon. To somo
this was a disappointment, but the ma
jority voted it "ail right." A marriage
contract, however, had been drawn up
for signature while lu the air, dated
"Floating In Mid Air." .
TUB START. I
The air-ship proved -to be too weak in
lifting power to carry all that were In
tended to go, so the wedding party
dwindled down to the married couple,
one of the bridesmaids, Miss Susie
Boynton and Professor Lowe.. As soon
as the platrorm could ,be sufficiently
cleared a start was attempted, but the
freight was still too heavy.' A' change
was therefore made, and the brides
maid stepped out and the little daugh
ter of Professor Boynton took her seat'
within the car.
This proved satisfactory,-and at the
word the balloon waa cast off, slowly
rislng as she canglit the rebound. A
cheer was attempted but was interrupt
ed by the seeming danger of the bal
loon striking a flag-staff, and . every
tongue was hushed. The oar collided,
the flagstaff sprung beneath the blow,
a sudden twist and all waa dear.. Then
the crowds below cheered: most lastly,
the ladles waved Iheiitbandkerohleb,
and so tho start was complete.
The balloon rose, glided upward beau
tifully, and as the sea breeze caught its
ailken sides, the ferial craft bounded
up almost Instantly to a hlghtof some
thousand feet, when it again drifted,
sailing slowly over the Central Park
toward High Bridge. The setting aun
gilded the globe of the balloon into
splendor, giving it the appearance of a
golden ball." '
As thb crowd dispersed they seized
npoh the evergreen arch, and1 in a very
few second* nothing t>ut a wreck re
mained. So ended the wedding in the
