The preparations lor the transbt lalitic balloon voysgo arc now lar ad vanced, and our enterprising uotem porary, the Daily Orphic, tells us that an extra lorce ol lianIs working y and night, will h.isiun tliein to coni plulion. It is believed that the great Inbrio will be ready for filling by the 30ih of August, when it will start oo lite journey aa soon as lully irflated. Besides the large boat suspended un der the car, a smaller tanoo will be carried, to serve as a lile boat. This latter cralt is fourteen leet long by twenty-eight inches broad, and is made ol paper three-eighths ol au inch thick. It is a fine piece ol work manship, and is constructed with air chambers so as tj be practically ua siiikuOlc. In event ol the leakage fi otu the balloon causing a decent ami rendering it necessary to take to the water, Mr. Donaldson will at tempt to .reach laud in the smaller vessel, whilo the real of the party will navigate the larger boat. The ibove menlioned gcuilcman recently raile'd the canoe on a trial trip be tween ihia oily and Long Branch, o u perl* ct saiety, altbJugh the sea was (|Uile tui'buk-nt. The capabilities ol the carrier pig eons are being thoroughly tested,and some ol the birds have shown a won derlul speed. The Ariel, a pijeon thai won the 12,000 prize in the in ternational coulest in Belgium ill 1871, aectMiipiished the distance be tween New York aud tittaiioid, Conn sixty lour miles, iu thirty iniu utes. Another bird, known as No. G, luaJe tlie jouruey in almost us quick time. The pigeons are ol tile linebt Belgiau s'ock, and some two and a hall years ago were im ported iy Mr. O. iS. 11 ut tel I. It is related that the flojk, some two doz en birds in all, were imported in two deUctunculs, aud uu theit arrival were carefully ccotiiicd Ur a long time in then coles. Alier they had been thus inert ed up, sufficiently long, as it was supposed, lor tiiem to forget ail about then trausatlautic home, the doors of the cages Iwere opened but to the dismay of their owuer, who i.ad invested upwards ol thousand dollars iu them, every pigeon flew promptly away. Iu about lour days, however, ail retain eJ apparently very much exhausted and ravenously hungry, since which time none have ever attempted to leave their piesent abode. It is con jectured that the birdo, on being re leased, made for the Atlantic coast and flew along its whole length,seek ing to recognize some feata:es ol Belgian birthplace. They have since multiplied Very rapidly, and at ttie present lime number about one thou sand. A number of these pigeoiu will be carried iu the car ot the balloon, and released at intervals with dispatches which they will carry, it is believed, directly to their cote at Iitvercliff. As it is thrown troui the balloon, each bird will probably fly wild an til it sights land, to which it will un mediately direct its course. The carrier pigeon has uo peculiar in sunct which directs bim homeward, but seems to possess a memory tor places, coupled with a very strong attachment lor its abode. In its var ious excursions uear the latter, il becomes acquainted with objects, say lor a radius ot seventy miles, se that, it once it sights any part ot the circle, it cau easily find its way home. On being let go. it first flies upward and perhaps looks over a circumfer ence sufficiently largo to inolude portion of tlio cirsim it to, toward which it immediately travels. But in ca so it sights no known object, then it wilffly in a chance direction for some distance, and then try again, and so on for about three times, when, if disap pointed, k returns to its starting point and begins a new flight. A good bird will keep up this repetition until it discovers its home locality, or else it tries so olten as to be dis eon raged then it seeks a uew home. The humorous side of the voyage seems to lorra a staple exercise lor the wits ol Ihe daily journals. Puns of various degrees of atrocity have been perpetrated on tho name of Pro lessor Wise, and the word "balloon aiio j| a°|requentfy Used that fe bid* fair to become a part of the language. One journal suggests sending up an experimental balloon, with a car load of a selected pariy from the dozen or so emotionally insame murderers now in the Tombs in litis city, and then, when at a sufficient elevuiiou spilling them out. Another exuber ates to the effect that Wise's expedi tion cannot but. be fruitful, because he is sure to fiud so many currents in the air. A t' ird obseryes that, it finning torpedoes are to bo dropped along the course ol the balloon, it might be well to provide the passen gers of ocean steamers with cast iron umbrellas. Some of the alleged answers ot correspondents to invita tions, from the managers, to a seal iu the car ro quite amusing. One re marks that the voyagers are pretty sure to reach some locality, but whether in this or the other world is questionable while another, poet ically inclined, replies thai "If I could read my title clear To mansions in the skies, l'4*id farewell to every fear Atod with your gas arise.*' Scientific American, Sept. 6. Queen Victoria's Fortune. Nobody Knows lis Amount—Splendid Real Estate Speculation of Her Late Husband. Upon the subject of their private fortune*, the Sovereigns pi England •ro«» Ilenry VIII to Victoria, have always preserved a curious reticence a.id secrecy. Not long ago a gentle man went to Doctors Commons.and, alter tendering Iho usual lee,demand ed permission to* examine the wills of all the Kings and Queens from Ilenry VIII (town. lie was told that not one of these wills were on file there, aud they were in the ctis tody of the Archbishop of (canter bury. The gentleman crossed the river to Lambeth, found the Arch bishop and made his quest to him But the Archbishop replied that he was not iu possession of any ot the wilU, and had not the slightest idea where they were. Alter the death »t George I., when George II. first receivetl his Minister, the Archbishop of Canterbury produced the will of One may live as a conqueror, a king a magistrate but he must die as a man. The bed of death brings every human being to his pure in dividualily. to the intense conteinpla Hon ot that deepest and most solemn of all relations between ihe creature and his Creator. will of the deceased monarch, but George II. instantly look tLe parch ment and put it into his pocket, and uothing more was heard of it. Tho wills of all subjects must be proved and recorded at Doctors Commons but tho will ot an English Sovereign is always kept secret, and whether its provision* are ezetuted or not seems to depend wholly on the pleas ure ot his successor. Now Prince Albert was not a Sovereign, but his will has been kepi a secret to this day, and no one knows what it con tained. The rumor is that tho Prince left everything to tho Queen, and that he also laid injunctions upon her not to convert auy ot the property into money tor tho purpose of giv ing the money to the Priuco ot Walts That young gentlemau, it may be re membered, was iu disgrace with his papa at the time ot the latter's death —indeed, the death itself was the consequence of a cold caught on a sudden journey to Oxford, wmther Prince Albert had beeni-ammouod, iu luste, to get his son out ot a dis graceful aud dangerous scrape iu which he was involved. No one, at the present day, knows exactly what are the "private estates" of the Queen- The estate of the Balmoral and the Osborue estate are known, and their value can be estimated but there are in addition the Ken siugton estates, ot which DO one bat 1873. know anything. When the plan tor the construction ot the South Ken sington Musuim was first devised, there wore miles of unoccupied land lying around the spot chosen for the great collection ol buildings now known as th(),Exliibuinn,the Museum, aud Albei Hall and ihere are other miles ot streets only partly br ill, and having for the most part cheap and poor houses upon them. A little ring" was formed—Prince Albert, Mr. Dilko (afterwards Sir C. W. Dilke), aud two or three others com posed it—and by this ring the great er part ot ihis properly was quietly bought up before the plan for the Aluseum, etc., was made public. This was mora titan twenty go. The WllOle oi itiai legion is uun covered with fine houses) and what cost only a few hundred thousands is now worthjnanyjmilliotis. Prince Albert's share of this is now the properly ot the Queen, aud these 'Kensington estates" are in them selves a verj la ge lorluue. Alto gether, in money and in lauded pro perty, to say nothing of the jewels, ller Majesty is supposed to possess something like £o,000,000 sterling, while no one really knows how much she has and the amount ma) be 110,000,000, or even .*60,000,000, tor aughtjany tone, can.sl.ow to the contrary. Daring Feats ofi'an Aero naut. Biumc, Wis., Sepicnttwr 1.1879. Mr. 11. A. Palmer, the aerouaut gave a tine exhibition to a large au dience at the Beioit Driving Parkou last Friday. Tho day was clear aud calin, ami hisiaige balloon rose iu al most a directjiue. _Mr. Palmer had uo baskel, nor was ho lied or secured to itie trapeze or rings ou wliich he performed his hazard ju* teats. The balloon being inflated aud held dowu by twenty men, the aeronaut sealed himself ou the trapeze-bar aud cried, let go everybody," when the bal loon went up like a shot. W hen at the height of 1,000 leet, Palmer let uro the ropes, aud, failing backward, hung by his tois to ltie bat uis" toes slipped troin the bar, aud as he dropped his bauds caught the two rings which were suspend eight leet below the trapeze his feet swung downward, aud he tvas seeu hanging by one hand to a ling, waving his Laud kerchief to tho wondering inoi lals below. This feat has never be lore been attempted, aud Palmer per formed it here tor the first time. His dariug and skillful performances, which were continued uulil the bal loon began to desceud, were brilliant and thrilling. Mr. Palmer is about 22 years old, and h»s made more tliau one huudred aud sixty balloon ascensions. He understands and attends to his bust ness, aud is undoubtedly the most daring aerial gymnast iu the world. —Chicago Journal. G. 'A correspondent of the Pall Mall Qanelte, Englaud, sends to that paper tho following religious statistics ot India, as gathered by ihe Missionary Conference recently held at Allaha bad, India "During the ten years between 1861 aud 1871 the nun ber ot Christians has more than doubled in Bengal, while the communicants have increased nearly threefold. Iu Central Iudia the native church has multiplied by almost tour huudreu per cent iu Oudu by one huudred aud seventy-fivu per cent. in the northwestern provitioe it has nearly doubled while the total increase for the whole ot India is sixty one per cent. The missionaries have thus established,writes the correspondent, in a startling manner that Cliristian iiy is a really living faith among the natives ot India, and that it is..spread ing at a rato which was altogether unsuspected by the general publio. The number of native ordained min isters has risen during the ten )ears in ques.ion trom ninety-seven to two hundred and twenty-six, and the number ol communicants lor ail Iu dia has more than doubled." They had a ''donation ua-ty*Ht ihe house ot a minister in Connecticut a day or two ago. About a hundred and fifty dollars worth of presents were.received but as the company ruined a five huudred dollar' piano and some impious kleptomaniao em' bezzled the spoons, the minister coi» siders mat it will take just about two tuore donation parties to burst hitix into ditpinuiive smithereens.

The Farmer of the North* west. It is amusing to the grave manner in which certain ot our city jour* nalists attempt to discuss the larmeMP question. These young sprigs, w|b swell around iu fancy neck ties aitd light boots, and who do not know a pitchfork from a McCoimick's rea£*% er, are full ot the gravest advice to the farmers. One ol these gentleman attempte^^T elucidato the agricultuial quel. tion iu Friday's Timet.

Injustieo is equally injustice, whether hoapod upon the banker, tho miller, the rail director, or the farmer. The condi tion in life of ihe sufferor makes no difference. A regulation which crip ples and om ban asses the merchaut will inert with the opposition of the mercantilo^community aud iu tho same way a law, or regulation, or a system, which imposes undtio bur dens on the farmers will meet with their active enmity. Tho farmers oi the West are not mendicants thejr aro not suffering for the necessariep of lite, or calling for donations to savo them from rags aud beggary. They are simply endurtug an op pression from railways, from monop olies, and from various torms of roguery, which is suffered iu common with them by nearly all classes, but by them most of all, and this oppres sion lliey demand shall cease.
