To no Mure to Tai Jour Friend. A j. Liow Nino major a Wii Grille militia 2d brigade. Aix out of Clayton six Teentie in blah voyage. Quot to the editors of Cincinnati agr Esabia to what i had slated in my advertisement ,1, in company with a lady ascended from Cincinnati in a Uit it on on july fourth 1838. About five minutes after six of clock p. M., the lady mrs. Balce of Cincinnati and Royael took our seats in the car. Every preparation Neomai for our ascent having previously been made we in a few moments took our departure from Amin Dat the most crowded ame Blage of persons i had Ever witnessed. By a proper adjust Nat of the ballast we Rose in a manner most pleasing Hiot pier tog the atmosphere like an Arrow from a Bow but rising at a rate that we could gaze for a Len the of time on the pleasing countenances that were directed towards us. Long before the Gay and Happy crowd beneath had lost their Power to attract our attention the whole City with the surrounding country for Miles with its variegated surface come within the limits of our Morrizon and form it a scene Clear Beautiful and enchanting. Five minutes after Sta Tim we were beyond Deer Creek moving in an e. N. A direction. Twenty five minutes after six of clock when at an Altitude of a mile and a half we took refreshments and drank a Glass of wine to our friends below five minutes of seven o clock we passed about three Miles to the right of Milford new town Batavia and several Small villages were in View. Five minutes after seven o clock the report of a Cannon not far Distant a drum and persons shouting we could distinctly hear. Twenty minutes after seven o clock a few Miles South of Goshen we came within one Hundred feet of the Earth. Persons were running towards us in All directions supposing we were Abt to land. By throwing Over a portion of ballast we again ascended and in Twenty minutes afterwards we were at our greatest Altitude about a mile and three quarters. The night coming on the Sun having descended below the horizon we agreed to descend. The country in the part that we were now floating Over was thinly settled and consequently great care was necessary to bring Down the balloon in the open Fields. My desire was to alight As gently As a Bird would descend to the ground. To ascertain whether we were descending rapidly or not i directed my companion to keep thru wins Over Small pieces of tissue paper while i held a ballast bag and threw out Sand whenever our motion downwards appeared to increase. We succeeded in regulating the descent towards the last so that we moved with the pieces of paper or rather they appeared stationary in the air around us. The cleared pieces of land being very Small and the Woods very extensive it was difficult to descend loan open 8iot. On coming within a Short Dis Unce of the ground i found that we should be carried a few Yards beyond the part i had fixed upon for the descent into Tho Woods. However this was a matter of Little moment As we should descend on the troops with the lightness of a Feather. We did so and by pressing downwards upon the Little branches a kit ration of the weight was removed for a moment the balloon con sequently ascended thirty or forty feet and it again reached the Trees it Wai carried iwo or three Hundred feet further. Several times i repeated this until we had by our successive leaps travelled Over several Hundred Yards. My object was to keep jumping along until the first opening in the Woods presented itself. Soon we descended Between some Trees cultic gently wide apart to allow the balloon to be forced to the ground by bending the branches of the descended to within thirty feet of the ground where we remained a Fow moments until Tho persons who were running to our Aid came to us. 1 then lowered the Grannel and Cable rope to them and in a few moments we were on Terra fir a. Our descent was made about eight o clock p. Within a Short distance of or. Baldwin s farm within a half a mile a Blanchester in the Southwest Corner of Clinton county Ohio and Aboul thirty five Miles from Cincinnati. 1 would now state that i had no desire to continue my voyage by retaining the Gas in the balloon As some of my friends had wished me to. For it would have been ill treatment of my fair companion to have left her so far from Home a Mong strangers where it was impossible to procure even a comfortable vehicle in which to return. In compliment to mrs. Blake must say that she proved herself throughout the whole voyage a perfect heroine. She displayed no timidity when stepping into the car she gazed As we ascended with admiration on the scene beneath and when at a great Altitude she stood up in the car without the least fear and changed seats with me and on approaching the Earth a time that was calculated to try her nerves she exhibited no agitation but on the other hand rendered to considerable assistance. I would also contradict a report that is now in circulation that she has several tins ascended from London with or. Green. It is false. Her Abscent from Cincinnati was her first. She has Long had a desire to ascend and she considered that the gratification of that desire would to a sufficient remuneration for adventure. We were hospitably treated by or. Baldwin who resides near where we landed. To the citizens of Cincinnati 1 would return my thanks for the Liberal patronage that they on this occasion and All my ascension Havo Given me. I Cuard Clayton. Cincinnati july 6th, 1838. Bills May nevertheless be Reci lived at the Treasury dtc., with this limitation that no bids shall be Reoe veil of Auy Bank which shall after the first Day of october next Issue or Gay out such Small Bills. This removed from Bills for that time the incapacity to received. Or. Web stub moved thereupon to add another Section removing in the like manner incapacity of Bank to be employed As Depolite Bank. This or. Wbi0ht opposed. In Webster insisted strongly that if this were not done a very unequal stale of things would exist As there a uld be Deposit Banks in some states and none in others. Or. Tiitu Indab and or. Rirs spoke earnestly to the same general Point. In this posture of things and a a really in order to get rid of the pressure of this argument of ice Quaty or. We Robt proposed instead of or. Webs Tab a Section a Section entirely Lyp Ealing the Depolite act except As to the Deposit with the states. On this general proposition the debate was resumed and continued with much animation. Or a bight a second Section was in the end adopted in the Senate and formed the jul to of the very interesting debate which ensued in the House and which resulted in rejecting this second Section by a majority of 19 votes the great ground of opposition to the Section being that it a mooned All control Over the custody of the Public Money to the executive. The House having amended the Bill by rejecting this Section the Bill came Back to the Senate on wednesday a a the amendment of the House was concurred in As we have already stated. It will be seen by reference to or. Webster s observations report , in what state the whole subject is now Hift. National intelligencer. The latest a expedient Quot Defeated. We said in our last that the Senate Bill for the repeal of the Deposit act of 18s6 of old never oui the House of representatives to the shape inv Nib it then stood. Oar Predi Efio is verified. Tbs Boum Trudt out the obnoxious provision. Our readers will see by the if port ��4 Ings of the Senate on we doraday Liat Fiat a gift concurred by a Strong vote to to important amendment of the House Mrtka out to pm it cond Section of the Bill being time Wiak if Talon the salutary provisions of the de mus act my it will be Reo Olleeta that Limo or. Wei omit ii trod oed this Bill it contained but one sat too and that Section had a single object Viz to provide that Bank notes of Banks which hiv9 issued out Small from the National intelligencer. Speaking of the new sub Treasury scheme thus for Tho third time Defeated in the House of representatives reminded us that the official paper undertook on tuesday night to represent our tuesday morning s account of that Bill As an attempt at imposition Quot selecting As illustrative of this attempt the following sentence from our remarks Viz Quot it proposes to invest the pres ident with an uncontrolled Power to prescribe what sort of Money shall be received in payment of dues to the government to the extent of requiring if he choose the whole Revenue of Twenty or thirty millions of dollars a year to be paid exclusively in specie. To sustain our statement thus questioned and thus declared to be an attempt at imposition it would be sufficient for us to refer to the terms of the Bill a copy of which has been already Laid before our readers. We Havo Noj oltion to take the testimony of competent and disinterested witnesses on the matter in i Suo Between us and the attorney of. The administration. Or. Calhoun s testimony which we Are about to introduce is contained in the report of the debate upon the passage of the Bill published in the very same number of the government paper which makes the Olfe site and groundless charge against us. To ask no More even of the most prejudiced Reader to Settle the question Between us Aud the government editor than that he shall first read the above rotation from the National intelligencer and then the following quotation from the speech of or. Calhoun on the same subject a i fear that the passage of this Bill would not reestablish the act of 89. There Are intermediate acts that would still remain in superseded. The Resolution of 1816, which authorizes the receipt of Bank notes in the Public dues would not be re peal nor would the usage of the government employing Banks As depositories of the Public Rev Enue be reversed. What then would be the of it feels of the passe of this Bill it would actor Ding to my opinion give the president Allnott unit Lim Ltd Power Over the collection and keeping of the a Revenue. If the act of 36 be repealed As propos Ltd a the Bill he would be left tree to order the it Public Money to be kept by the treasurer and the collectors or to be placed in Banks and under the Resolution of 16, in conjunction with the Hill introduced by the senator from Massachusetts this session and which has since become a Law by the unanimous vote of those on the other Side of the a Hamber he May order at his pleasure the col Lection to be made m Gold and a River or Bank notes provided the discrimination he made in the different branches of the Revenue. He might in a word either restore the act of 89, or supersede it As he might think Best for the Public Good. It a is sir a great and High responsibility to be impose de on any individual and which i who am and have Ever been opposed to discretionary Power am unwilling to that you claim Iii and with a a an Amarica ii citizen. I admit and reciprocate i this claim with great pleasure and sincerity.

It affords me gentlemen much gratification to find that my political conduct on trying of casinos now Pas and 1 Hope passed forever has met your approbation. I he period to which 1 refer you justly Call a dark hour. I Felt it to be my duty in that momentous crisis to disregard All party Anid personal considerations to act in the True spirit of the Constitution and without forgetting to propriety of moderation or Lite Laws of kindness and Charity to proceed nevertheless with a firm and indelible Resolution of upholding the authority of the Laws and defending the Union.
