The use of ballooning, in reeon.noiter- ing at Washington and Fortress Monroe, seems not -to. have been continued at Bull Run. Had .a balloon been, sent up from Centervillo in. the morning, nnd kept- floating above the center of our. army du- ring the day, it is very probable .that the fire of the three or four batteries which was wasted on our. left, in .a feint to which the enemy paid no attention, would have been directed to points where it would. have told on the fate of the day. Every body remembers the use which the French Emperor made o'f'Go'dard'a'iid his balloon. in reeonnoisiuice in the Italian campaign. The only battle in which a balloon 'float- ing over the field was usod to give infor- mation to the commanding General, is that of Fleurus, w'hich was fought 'in June, 1794.

Tho uniform was and upon its surface down the ranks extended a line of white gloved hands, a.striking and beautiful con- trust to the dark blue of the coats. The firms notwithstanding the drizzling rain, were bright ami clean, proving tliat the Wisuonsin boys can keep even poor nius- .kets in good.condition, and also the truth, of th.e old.adage, that a .soldier is known .by .the..arms hei carries." When the presentation was about to take division on -each 'flank of the bitallion were wheeled ,to the right and loft, forming three sides' of a square., This moye-m.ent was executed with such- a degree of perfection as to elicit remarks of praise from Gran. Dix and the officers, who accompanied him. The color guard, then marched forward from the line, and. .Gen. Dix placing the colors in the hands, of Col. Pake, addressed the regiment in the following patriotic, and etimng lan- guage _- "Soldiers.: Eighty-four years ago the stars and stripes were adopted'by the. old Federal Congress as the 'national banner, f Under, its auspices the founders of the Republic -passed triumphantly through .the toils ami perils of that sanguinary i contest, which made us free and clependenti people.
