have detract flnj the pleasure of the
excursion under any circumstances. .
The voysge terminateJ quite disas

ufacturers, in South Uedham, Mass., uear
whos works the final catastrophe oc
enrfpd, has given as the following par
ticulars: The teamsters' near1 tha factory
(which ii about four miles west of Old
licdham, and opposite Canton), first aaw
the, balloon, (which arrived there about a
qiinrUir paat si) drop down Uaot of the
woods half a mile oil'. It rose again,
however, and enme over near the works,
when Ahe teroiiauts . were beard calling
out for some one to catch hold of their
anchor rope. They were drifting over a
level plain where there was nothing to
secure it to. .
Mr. 'Turner, and Mr. Morrill, of tne
company, and one ot their teamsters,
seized the rope, but it might as well have
been tied to a locomotive with nil steam
on, so far as their ability to hold it back
was concerned.- AH three were oaoiy
strained or bruisea in ineir exertions,
and Mr. Turner is unable to leave his
bed to-day in consequence. They held
fast lo the rope, and were dragged to the
edge of a pond of about six acres. If a
tree had been near uiey couia nuve

which they had harnessed, but to save
themselves were obliged to let go when

ploughed through the pond, immersed to
the depth of three feet, and going at the
rate of perhaps fifteen miles an hour.
After leavini; the pond the basket
struck aktdneVall.Jby which tha men re
ceived their injuries. Mr. James Allen
was wifiot htfrtf bnt not aeriousiy. um

Landy was cut on the head, but not te

and the way in which they bear them

The old jail if situated in the eastern
end of t he uity, on Front street, near the
aide of the bay. It is a gloomy looking
pile of atone, aud forborne, time, had
been unoccupied,' another and better ap
pointed prison, more recently erected in
another portion of the city, having bpnn
insullicient to accommodate all. 'the
erimiuals. The building consists of a
central tower, from which branch off
two wings, one west and the other sooth.
The qeutral portion is four stories high ;
l ie wines are three stories. The jail
yiird is mi irregular parallelogram,, two
ot -Its sides loruieu ly ino wings, aim me
west bv a atone wall fifteen feet high;
the southern boundary is a board fence J
of about tha same bight llie entrance
to the building is from Front streot. The
jail sets back abont thirty yards from the
road. The visitor is obiigeu ueiore ne
reaches the massive oak portal, studded
with iron, to pass two soldiers on guard.
In obedience to our summons, the key
of the warder grated in Ihe old lock, and
the massive door slowly grating on Us
hinges stood partially open, and we
caught a view of the interior.
A very mild, benevolent looking; old
person is the turnkey. He quickly Sent
a boy to the Governor with our pass, and
iu the meantime we had an opportunity
of looking at the lobby and its occu
pants. A, clumsy wooden grating .with
oprighfii Wparates the lobby ! fruin-uhe
main hall. A fierce looking soldier,
dressed in red, and armtM to the teelh.
was walking up and down his confined

being iuliniit,ed through Jhe grating door
ww'turned to the; tight arid descending
two or three steps a few paces brought ua
to the door of the room in which one
body of the Fenians is confined. They
are about fiftv in number. W hat strikes
a person as most remarkable on first
seeing these prisoners is the extreme
youth of nearly all of them. Many of
them are certainly too young ta un
dergo the fatigues, of a .lengthened
campaign. They are, however, taken
all in all, a pretty hard looking crowd,
and I should jodge compose the vary
best fighting material. They are ordered
to fall in to the right when anybody
comet in either to identify them or for
mere 'curiosity; the'latfer,' however, are
few. as strict orders have been given to
exclude them. The majority of tliil
batch wore dressed in shirt and pants;
very few sported a rout: It is noteworthy
that so fur as hands- and faces are con
cerned there is every appearance that
they are not at all restricted in the sop
ply of soap and water, and their heads
also exhibited traces of ihe comb aiid
brush. - ' '
On leaving this room, in the halt, im
mediately on the left going toward the
ynrd. are the cooking utensils, principal
ly consisting of large coppers for the
manufacture of soups. In the yard and
in a room of tha aouth wing we found the
other main body of the Fenian. They
present much the tame appearance as
the others, with whom they share alter
nately the pleasure of llie open air.t
THE BIOOX tVM DANC .
Description by Major General Curtis
Barbarous and Horrible Bitot-Sickening
Details ot Self-Torture. ' ,' ?
Major General Cutis writes lo bis
wife, from Fort Sully, the following ac
count of one of the horrible demonstra
tions of the Sioux Indians, which he wit
nessed recently near that Fort : 1
roeT OQLI.T. June z, .snw
"The whole of the threethousand SiouX
camped abont us gave me early informa
tion of their design to have their annual
sun dance at this time and place, the
eason of the year, the trees ia full leaf,
having now arrived ; and they wished me
to inform CL Ueror, Ihe couimaader of
the ooldiere, that however boisterous
their demonstrations mijht br;, they
won Id all be peaceable and of a pioot
"On yesterday, June 1, the dancing
was delayed at intervals to allow tortures
to be indicted. Two or three men stood
over the devotee with needle and knife,
very quietly performing penance accor
ding to their enstumt ot all these aacre
dolal ritet as followt: "
"First, they cut the arms in sever!
placea by atnking an awl in the skin,
raising it and cutting ont about half an
LAKGEMT CITT ; CIBCULATIOX.
inch. This it done on both arms, and
sometime on the breast and back. Then
wooden aetoaa (aticka about the thick
ness of a common lead penoil) are in.
serted through a hole in the ski a and
flesh. , The cords or ropet are attached
to, these stick by one end, and to the
pole at the other end, the victim, polling
ou the ropes till tha aeton ttickt tear out
the flesh and akin. ' I saw one with two
aetona thus attached to his Ueast,. pul.
ling till it seemed to draw the. skinful
three inches, and finally requiring nearly
hit whole weight to tear out the : teton.
One painted black had four ropet at
tached at once. - The pulling out ia done
ia the dance,' the pulling carried on in
the time of the music by jerk, jerk, jerk,
and tha eye, head and front all facing
the sun iu the. form of supplication. -One
bad four seliuit -attached do four dry
buffalo , head ' lmfnea. These were all
sir ling and kuspended to bis flesh by
ropes that raised each head tome three
lent off the ground. U danced hard to
tear them out but they would not break
the skin' . One came ff the stick acci
dentally, but it, was ugnin fastened. Fi
nally theso heavy weights (each at least
twenty-five .pound weight) not Tearing
out by their own weight aud motion, the
devotee gave a. comrade a horse to take
hold of the rope and tear out the tetont.
While these men Were being thus tor
tured, their female relations came in and
bad pieces cut out of their arms, to show
their appreciation and valor, and devo
tion to their kinsmen. Still, as soon as
the victim could be prepared, the music'
was renewed and the dismal dance went
on;, the victims' bodies now mingled
with blood, paint' and aetona. -
"There being several steamboats and
many soldier here, a great crowd of
pectator rather embarrassed the per-,
formers,' to they concluded the perform
anee 't' twelve o'clock, having only
danced twenty-four hours instead of forty
eight, as they usually do. All the devo
