' i From the N.Y. Tribune. May 26.) . ,. - The long-anticipated attempt at utihI navigation, 'which it Wns Bverul wipk nito "promised the peAle of Nek. York should witness, has at lust takers placf. About 4 o'clock yesterday afternnon, Ur. SolotnoB Andrews, tho invenlorand con structor of the " flying sWp," aocotnpa nied by a party of friends, Btarted with his apparatus to make the trial, which he has consented shall be considered the Crucial test of the correctness or fulhMjr of his theories of arial navigation. The Hfccvtit wat niatli; from tke eualosed yard at the corner of Greene and Houston affects, where the apparatus hn9 been for several weeks on exhibition. The party of adventurers comprised Dr. Andrews and Messrs. Geo. V. Trow, C. MPlumb and (5. Waldo Hill. So quietly had all the fcrwngoiiieiilJ' beenJ made that very few persons besides the travelers were aware that the trial wai to occur that day.' Dr. Andrews commenced tilling the balloon of his vessel about o'clock in the morning, and about 3 p.m. it was pronounced to be ready. Th otkef pre parations occupied but ft short time, and about 4 o'clock, as w lave said, the sig nal was given to " eut loose," and the ship and its riving freight rose rapidly into the air. The yard which had contained the ap paratus being barely large enough to re ceive it, and inclosed with a biph fence, and further surrounded with lofty houses and chimneys, it had been feared that soma difficulty would be encountered ii setting out, but in this respect the voy agers were happily disappointed, the balloon rising almost directly up until it was above all surrounding obstacle, when it began to drift rapidly away. AJ most at the start, by some mischance, the rudder ropes became entajigled H gome portion of the rigging, wfcich prW vented her steering. Tho wjnj was fit this time blowing a light hut steafly breeze from the southwest, and the biU loon drifted with1 it some cotisiderabls distance. srt last, however, the voyagers seemed trrti't their' machine, under con trol, for they turued her repeatedly in different directions, and atljast headed her to ie northward and .eastward, crossed the Eust river, and passed rap idly out ol night. . The rate of speed of the mnchine, when last seen, seemed to be about 2C or 23 miles an hotir. As thia is' absolutely the first trial, not merely of this, but of any apparatus con, strut ted -in a similar manner, een the inventor declineito make any prophe cies of what mayor may not be achieved in this trip." Whether lie intends or ex pects toeAcb, any particular point, is known oirly'to .hiwself. The only infor mation winch he vouchsafe to any one is that he ilintends to see what she will do."

The aeroltal'nf this apparatus, instead of being pear shaped, like that of tho common balloon, more rtsembles a long lemun, terminat ing in a shurp point at either ead. This Hut horizontally ia the air, and by Hiearfs of a trorftr ViMtiritr pa?ing over the whole bag, supports the car, eliaped like a cradle, of wicker-work, about eight feet in length by two in width. A strong leather strap passing along the top and bottom of tho balloon, and drawn toge ther by cords, forms a deep grodve in the upper and under sides. The principle of its vperatioa; is, that, owing , its pecu liar form, it will move much more easily in the direction of its length than in any other, and conaeijufcntjy when it is rising through the air or siuking toward the earth, if one of its points be turned pr t ally, in the direction in whica it at going, the ballona will 'glide1 oil' in the direction ia which it ii pointed, and thus .MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE, TUESDAY EVENING, JCTNfi 5, 18G6. by alternately rising and sinking in op- ' posite directions, the machine is pro- Eellea aneau. xne uuuuuu wim wuiun ir.

It contains, when fully in flated, about liO.UOO cubic leet ot gas, ana is estimated to be able to sustain a bur den of 1808 pounds. ' ' I.ATKR BETURlf OFTHIt AHONAUTsl Since the above was written we have seen Mr. Trow,- one of the gentlemen who accompapied Dr. Andrews iu his trip, and have learned from him the par ticulars ef the voyage. At lirst starting, as wan apprehended, the rope by which the rudder is managed became entangled, and the vessel drifted some distance be fore she could be controlled. When the ropes became clear, it was found that she could be readily managed and turned hi any direction, but owing to inaoiiiij to give the machine as much inclina tion as was needed, they . were uns hle to make hendwnr airainst the wind. which had by this time become fresh. The utmost tbey could do was to hold ' themselves from going with the wind, but pot to travel against it, .Under these circumstances, it was not judged advisa ble to go very far away, after cruising for a while, the voyagers finally landed near the village of Astoria, L. I. The people of Astoria rendered them every as sistance to secure and pack the balloon, and they all reached New York late in the evening, highly pleased with their trip. Dr. Andrews and his companions are all satisfied that, by making some trifling alterations in the rigging of the apparatus, they will be able to make headway against any ordirmry breeze, and they are all sanguine as to the final success of their plan. As soon as the reaiiisite alterations are completed an- b'flier friat trill be rliadf. ' The Bank of England-The Becent Suspen sion of the Bank Charter-What it Xeans. The Banking Laws of England are not gftuerallv-uodbrttood m thisf otuitry, aud the inquiry hns often been made during the past few days as to what the "suspen sion of the bank charter" really amounts to; ' We will try to explain tho matter: The principal bank of deposit and cir culation in Europe was'founded jn Lon don i-n 1704, and grew out of a loan of 'ilOO.OOO fof the public service. Its principal projector was William Patter son, a Scotch gentleman, who, according to his own acoount, commenced his ex ertions for the establishment of a National Bauk.iu 1631. . The. subscribers, besides receiving eight per cent On the sum ad vanced, and 4,000 ayear, in alUUrO.OOO per year, were incorporated into a socie ty, July 27th 17H4, and denominated the Governor and Company of the Bank of England the name they are still known liv. .The first Governor was Sir John ilaublon, whose house and garden ocM picd the site of the present Bank. ' During the great recoiriage in 1C9C a crisis occurred and the Directors were compelled to suspend the payment,, of their. notes. This, .however, they got over, and in order to prevent the like oc currence, the capital was increased from I 1,200,000 to 2,201.171. The charter was renewed the next year until 1711; in 1708 it was further continued to 1733; in 1712, to 1743; in 1742, 17C5; in 17fi3, to 17tC;iin 1701, to 1812, m 1800. to 1H3S ; in 1833 nntil 1S53, and ii 1S44, the charier which has recently been sus pended land khrawn as the Peel Bink Act, was adopted by Parliament. The first great event in the history of the Bauk occurred in 1797 when cash payments were suspended. On Saturday, February "2fi, 17, 'a public annoaftcf inent whs made of the landing of some troops in Wales from a French frigate. Thealarm on the subject of invasion was deep and universal, and the bank, though posses sing property, after all claims upon her bad been deducted to the amount of 15 613,G!h), had only l,27'.t,000 of cash and bullion in her colors. There was every prospect of a violent run, and on the next day (Sunday) an order of council waa issued, prohibiting the Directors from paying notes in cash until the sense of Parliament had benn tukfn on the sub ject Parliament concarred with the Pyivy Council and the restriction act pro hibiting'.the bank from paying cash, ex cept for sums tinder twenty shillings, was passed. Previous tol 1755 the bank did not issue artynotes fV less than 20; 10 notes were then issued for the first time. i notes Were firs, issued in 1794. In 1797 1 and 2 miles were isiiued, but have since been disrnntinunl. The bank never re-isaued the same notes, even if they are returned the same day they are sent out A lost bank note, of which the holder knows the number and date, may be stopped at the bank fur a day, and no tice obtained of its Iteing presented, by giving . information at the secretary s office and paying 2s. fid. The first forgery of a bank note occurred in 17 3S, when the person who forged waa. con victed and executed. The total loss to the bank from Kanntleroy s forgeries amounted to jE.1C0.WHI. The bank charter, which is now sus pended, permits the bank to issue notes to the anlbuntof roin on hand ia the Issue Department, and also to the extent of 141,000,000 based upon public stocks. If these provisions are violated, the bank forfeits its charter, and an over issue cannot be authorized without consent of the Government Semi-weekly returns are made to the Chancellor of the Ex chequer, and the letter of the law is always lived up to. This is the third time in twenty two years that the Bank of England has been compelled to ask of the Government a suspension of its terms of incorporation, and for the third time have the Minister of the Crown interposed to save its char ter from legal forfeiture. The old rxpedicuts adoptfd in tins case' by Mri Gladstone, of provisionally allowing a temporary over-issue of 10. 000.000 ha doubtless afforded relief, if not commercial ease. Technically, the Bank of Eugland ha not suspended spe cie payments, but, practically, tho Bank on the 11th instant had neither specie nor it once secured ote to continue business twenty-four honrs longer. This last panie will doubtless cause a revision and enlargement of the cele brated Peel act of IS44. Basalt of Moderation la Diet. Health and longevity are not the only results of moderation in diet It ialla enco is far from being limited to the body. It effect vu the mind i lull more important Julius Ca?sar, constitution ally addicted to excess, when resolved on some great exploit, was accustomed to diminish his diet to an extent truly marvelous,' and to thi diminution be LARGEST CITY CIUCCLATIO.V. ascribe the denrncs land energy of mind which distinguished him in the hour of battle. When extraordinary mental vigor was desired by the First Napoleon, he used the same means to attain it To his rarely equaled modera tion in diet, Dr. Franklin ascribed his "clearness of idea" and "quickness of perception, and considered his pro gress in study proportionate to the degree of temperance which be practiced. Whik; Hit Isaac Newton was composing me "Treatise' on Optics," he tonlined him self to bread and a little sack and water. Scarcely lees 1 rigid was the absti nence of Leibnitz, when preparing some parts of hisj "Uuiverwl Language." D'Aubigne relate of Luther, on the authority of Melanctbon, that a "little bread and a single herring were often his only food for a da)-. Indeed, he was constitutionally abstemniou;and, even after he had found out that heaven was not to ba purchased by abstinence, he often contented himself with the poorest food, and would continue for a consider able time without eating .or drinking." Dr. Chevne. celebrated ubysicion, re duced himself from the onornious weight pf 41S nounds to 1 ID pounds, by con fining himself ton limited quantity of vegetables, milk anu water, as nis ouiy food and drink. The result was a res toration of health and mental vigor--anrl. amid . Drofessional and literary labors, uninterrupted health and pro tracted life.

We discovered then, for the first time, that a retail whisky saloon had been established in front of and in the very same building with the city calaboose, the door of which the saloon, not tke calaboose stood invitingly open. Talk about the "eternal fitness of things I Here, indeed, we have something handy; the poor inebriate may drop in, take his potations, spend his money, and then, when reduced to a state of general de moralization, he can be hustled into on of the back rooms, the window sashes of which are made of iron, and wake up in the moruitig to contribute the balance of his cash, should fie find any left, toward carrying on the municipal institutions of the city. -Kali Lnkf City ViihVe.
