71 ESDAY EVENING, JULY 19, 1802. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Weather Probabilities.?For this section light local showers to-day or to? night, followed by fair weather "Wed? nesday, southwesterly winds, slightly wanner, except in southeastern Vir? ginia stationary temperature. Landed in a TreeTo^.?Miss Pearl La Roy, the aeronaut at Bethcsda Park, near Georgetown", had quite an excit? ing expenen? ? last night. She had made an ascension to some lour or five thousand reel before cutting loose, and had chosen a field iu which to drop, but the wind carried her oft and gently deposited her on the uppermost branch of a tall tree about two miles from the starting place. Searching parties which were sent out were unable to locate her until about 10 o'clock, and after consid? erable difficulty she was lowered to the ground with ropes. Fortunately she was not injured. Apropos of the above, it is said that an Alexandrian at River View two weeks ago. while in a ven? turesome mood, took a seat on the bar of the balloon in which the lady aero? naut was to make her ascension. The attendants, in order to perpetrate a practical joke, loosened the ropes and allowed the- air ship to ascend. The "passenger" grew frantic and cried lustily to oe pulled hack to mother earth, vehemently asserting he would jump if his appeals were ignored. To his intense gratification the balloon was finally landed and he lo^t no time in planting his foot once more upon things te'n'cstrialj andina much more: sedate frame of mind than when he straddled the bar of the aerial car, ! doubtless convinced that there are oth? er bars to be avoided ?s well as those where potions are cOnpounded to steal away our brains. <;;:n. Field in Clxpeper.?General James G. Field, the people's party can? didate, sjK>ke on thec< iirt-green at Cul pejw t yesterday to a ? ? 11 and unsym? pathetic audience, lie introduced him? self to favorable consideration by styling himself a son of Cujpeper. His speech eousisted almost entirely of a denuncia? tion of tin- democratic party of which be was a former member, but which for some tin > pa.sl lui3 refused to give him oiliee. Col. J. C. Gibson, of Culpcper, aud Mr. Jas. !'. Jcfli ie.-.of Fauqaicr,were among the audience and requested Gcu. Field to divide time with them but he refused on the ground that it would be beneath the dignity ofa candidate for the Vice Presidency to discuss issues with them. Congressmen Bryan and Mansur were invited to and expected to speak at Culpepcr yesterday, but failed to reach there; it i- said that ?eh. Field will get three votes in Gul neper?these of his two brothers and Iiis own. Dancixg Party.?The young ladies who ai\- summcriugnt t'larcns, on Sem? inary Hill.?Misses Esther and Lucy Brookes; tCilbournc and Sinclair?gave a dance last evening to some of their friends in this city. Tin- beautiful grounds were made mote attractive by hammocks aid tete-aVtet '-..aud echot - from different parts of the lawn testified to the thorough enjoyment of the guest -.

Imitating Dot Zelno.-?A promis iug "Tunnel-town" youth, who had on several occasions from ??Windmill Hill" watched the exploits of Mme. Zelno in cuttiug loose from a balloon at a high altitude while hovering over River View ami descending to terra firma under a parachute, conceived the idea of making a descent from the west end of the Wilkesstreet tunnel on Sat? urday, lie improvised a parachute from a family umbrella and after mount? ing the wall spread his canopy and jumped. The ??parachute" didn't work "worth a cent," and the ambitious youth in a second's time was in a posterior position on the track below, tangled up in the umbrella, and, like Mr. Squccr's pupil, screwing his knuckles in both eyes. He had de? scended between twenty-live and thirty fee;, and. though considerably jarred, was not seriously hurt. A Trc Bt i:ni:!>.?The tugboat Lconi das, belonging in Georgetown, caught tire in the river opposite Marshall Hall at ?_' o'clock yesterday afternoon, and was nearly destroyed. The men on board the tug when the flames broke out succeeded In running the boat ashore and making their escape. Then the Macalester, which was at the land? ing, steamed over to the Leonidas and succeeded in putting out the lire by means of the apparatus which she car? ries, but not until the Leonidas was burned to the water's edge. The dam? age to the tug was about ^I.imio. Yes? terday evening the burned tug was taken in charge by a government tug and towed to this city where site was run into Mr. Aitchcson's dock and made fast and where last night she sunk.
