A “MEMORY OF BALI<OO*ING.” Mr. Green, the great London aeronaut, who has ascended some hundred and fifty limes from Vauxhall Gardens, London ; who has taken his air-journeys at all times of the day and ntght; who has sailed over a continent with passengers in his frail bark, when it was so dark, that, according to the testimony of one of his fellow voya gers, it seemed as though the balloon was making its noiseless way through a mass of impenetrable black marble—this same Mr. Green—to come back from our long sentence —once gave out, by hand-kills and the public prints, that on a certain afternoon in July, he would ascend from Vauxhall Gardens, London, at fouro’clock in the afternoon, with a distinguished lady and gentleman, wt*. had volunteered toJ accompany him on that occasion. M The day and the hour at length arrived.! The spacious inclosur?* of the Garden were crowded with an excited multitude, awaiting with the utmost impatience for the tossing, rolling globe to mount up and be lost in the blue creation that spread out far above the giant city, pavilioned by ita clouds of smoke. But the hour passed by, and the ** distinguished lady and gen. tlemau” came not. “ It’s an *oax ?** exclaimed hundreds, simultaneously among the crowd ; “There isn’t no sich persons.” Mr. Green assured them of his good faith ; read the letter that he had received from “the parties,” and his answer; but i still the “ madness of the people” increased, i and still the “ distinguished lady and ' gentleman” came not. Matters were < growing more and more serious, and a ; i •• row** aeetred inevitable. DEVOTED TO LITERATURE. AND GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. LEONARD TOWN. HD.. TUMRSdIr HORNING, (HTOBEIM, ISIJ. At this crisis of affairs, a ■3l dressed in black, with a white I the dense t flßHPM* Mao^rv - ] ljr^Hrr <ure too clad to ac*l / as nme sort of salvo auditory, whose denun. , dheegf vociferations were increasing < every * ' I Mr. Green, sfandtn#Nip in the cr of his torains and impatient vessel, now , announced. that 44 a gentlemarrjrfescnt, in manner, had volunteered to make the. ascent with him,” and that the “ monster-balloon” would at once depart for the vague regions of the upper air. This announcement was hailed with acclamations by the assembled multitudes; and giving some necessary orders to hi assistants, who bad become fatigued with holding the groaning ropes that had until now confined the “ monster” to the earth, the balloon was liberated, and rose slowly and majestically over the vast crowd of spectators and the wilderness of brick and mortar, and towers and steeples, and spa cious parks, that lay spread out below, and gradually melted into the celestial blue. What followed is best represented by the partially remembered words of the j aeronanl himself, as shadowed forth in the memorandum already referred to. “ As wc rose above the metropolis, and, ilsmigb'.y mass began to melt into iudis-| ‘ linctness, my companion, whose bearing}, and manner had hitherto most f^orablW of great uneasiness. As we were passing over Ilanwell, dimly seen among the f extended suburbs of the great city, his anxiety seemed to increase in an extraor. dinary degree. Pointing, with trembling finger, in that immediate direction, he said : “ ‘ Can they see vs from theee ? can they reach us in any way ? can they telegraph us ? — can they, I say ?” “ Surprised at the excitement, and at the abrupt alarm of one who had been so remarkably cool and self-possessed at starting, I replied ; “• Certainly not, my dear sir; wc are half a mile from the earth, at least.* “ Ah, ha ? then I am safe ! they can’t catch me note ! I escaped from them only this morning!’ “ With a vague sense of some impend ing evil, I asked ; •• ‘ leaped !—how from where V “‘From the lunatic asylum! They thought I was crazed, and sent me there to be confined. Crazed? Why, there’s not & man in London so sane as I am, and they knew it. It was a trick, sir—a tr ck? A UflriypMpH my estate !

You are endan. 1 gering both our lives !* t “ All this lime the balloon was ascend, i ing with such rapidity, that the rush of : the air thrtugh the net.work was like the i I wild whistling of the wind in the cordage of a ship under bare poles, in a galaf at sea. * VWhtt do Ida V repeated the *nad- f / inan ;*I am getting away ? lam goinj ■rthe moon !—I am going to the moon !

He succeeded ad mi|y in his profession, and rose rapid ly xopular favor. He had been there ned two years, wh*n he had induced a prir to come and print a weekly paper, of Ich he was editor and proprietor. Squ S was much pleased for a editing a paper. He was a maf very low stature, hut he u*ed th** etlipl “ we,” as frequently as if there wasdozen of them, and each as big as Dal Lambert or the Kentucky Giant. to say, there were men then in offi who were not a particle more honest thabey should be—a thing which proha hlviever happened before, and never wragain- Squire S felt all the pastism of a son of ’76, and poured out grt and canister against the public abes. This stirred up a hornet’s not aht his ears; but as there was no other pair in the territory, there was no reply, fc?e enjoyed his warlike propensities iitfeurity. k length he published an article more ajre and cutting against malfeasance in oic than any that had preceded it. In fc, though pointed at no one individual irtarticular, it was a scorcher. His pen a busy with a paragraph, when the Jir opened without much ceremony, and itstalked a man about six feet in his <ckings. He asked: 44 Are you N . p proprietor of this paper?” Thinking 1 had found a new patron, the little man. ith one of his very blandest smiles, liswcred in the affirmative. Th si ran er deliberately drew the last number om h?s pocket, and pointing to an article gain*>t rogues in office, told the affrighted liior it was intended for him. It wa* i vain that 9 protested that he had ever heard of him before. The wrath f the visitor roae to fever heat, and from g | being so long restrained, boiled over with „ | double fury. He gave the choice, either m | to publish a very laudable recantation, or lake a flogging on the spot. |.

The Ink on r tf,e fl fK>r h*d found tu way to their faces, till bo'h of them cut the most ridiculous figures imaginable. The noise and up. roar was tremendous.

The chemistry of the toilct-tuble has provided many preparations under the name ut C'smctics, for external adorn meni or artificial ueautitying. Hair dyes, pomatum-, pomades, depilatories denii fnces, tooth powders, Ate., may all be deemed more or lea* as belonging to the class of cosmetics ; but the name is usual ly confined to those preparations which are applied to the skin. The best cosmetic is plain viap and and water. To soften the skin, however, many substances are used, such as almond soap, Naples soap, Castile soep, milk of roars, co.d cream, or almond paste. Sometimes it is desired to harden the cuu ( cie or outer skin, and this is dune by , spirit, astringents, and acids. For re. moving or hiding freckles, various lotions and washes are employed. To give an , artificial tint or bioom to the skin is the I chiet work of the cosmetic artist. Rouge , and carmine are much employed to give v . * , a red tint; starch ami magnesia to impart a delicate whiteness. Several of the salts ol bismuth and lead, under the various fine , wni:rnl|ibß wlme, cream ol ros, Ate., are often employed as cos , melics; but they have an injurious effect ! on the skin, and sometimes produce a sort i of skin-poisouing.
