Chance having made me repeatedly a with iss of aeronautic display both in this country and Europe i imbibed an ardent desire to participate in the pleasures which seems to me Peculiar to such a Mode of travel i wished to look Down upon our fair Earth from such an Eminence As this Means Only could command you May say it was curiosity if you will for that is said to be characteristic of our sex How Ever in instance i Trust it was a pardonable one. An Oppi Rani to offered for the fulfilment of my Long Chc design in the fall of 36, when i Contempfatiir-1 journey to the skies but one of those accidents against which it was impossible to provide frustrated my Hopes the balloon burst almost at the Iun Tant of my intended departure. Mortified at such a result Aud convinced that the multitude without the Gates was highly incensed i determined it should not be fur the want of an erty of the late Benjamin Ricaud esq., of Baltimore ill the Vicinity of Chestertown Kent county about five Miles from Rock Hall and two from the shores of the Chesapeake Bay.

Sept. 30 we. Y. Wiley. Sending till on a level with the top of the medical College when i attempted to cast out ballast but too late to avoid coining to the Earth and the car presently rested on a clothes line in a lot adjacent to the enclosure whence i departed i now deprived myself of the barometer and them meter and a Quantity of ballast retaining but 25 lbs. For the emergencies of expedition and desiring the gentlemen to release the car the balloon moderately ascended but was borne in a direction almost Central Over the Cit at a height of about 4000 feet i attempted to liberate a Pigeon a hich had so far been my co.11-Pagnon do voyage but tiie poor Bird seemed reluctant to part company it perched on the hoop and gained Wilh apparent consternation into the abyss below took it again in my hands and cast it into the air. It Fei like a Stone Aid i have been since informed by those who perceived it that the Bird appeared to have lost is self position till within some 300 or 400 feet of the Earth when it made use of its wings to some purpose for to keep out of such a scrape in future it has not been seen at its old quarters since. I was now alone beyond the reach of the world its praises or rebukes and i determined to Quot see a hat was to be casting out More ballast the balloon Rose rapidly and presently encountered a current of air which carried me Over Federal Hill and now reclining upon the Edge of the car i enjoyed in no Ordinary degree tile in Lexidor of that inimitable scene sketched in skilful miniature below yet gorgeously Sublime in the magnitude of its excess. The City had dwindled into lilliputian dimensions and the amphitheatre which i had lately left seemed to occupy at least Yit e Square feet. I could perceive that it was deserted turning to look from the other Side in an instant a film came Over my eyes i rubbed them but to no purpose i could see nothing but the car and its contents and hear nothing 6ut the rustling of the balloon As it seemed to struggle with some invisible antagonist in upper air a inocent s reflection taught me that i was enveloped in a Cloud from the feathery Edge of which i he merged just As i became aware of my situation and again that picture of the fair and Lovely Earth from which i had isolated myself burst upon my View Beautiful in its indistinct minuteness 10,000 feet below the Point from which i gazed. I now Felt Iho Breeze increase and As i still Rose it became More southerly and 1 crossed the Basin passing Over fort Mchenry to the Lazaretti continuing that course for about fifteen Miles unconscious of an incident Worth recording when a slight hissing in tie air made me Start to my feet it increased and scarcely had 1 secured the end of the Cord in the Wicker of the car when a flaw of wind struck the balloon and its motion became rotary tie car careering rather More than was pleasant in its prompt a fibres to follow the etheral Waltz it lasted about thirty seconds and having become somewhat More tract table upon referring to the Sun i found the wind coming from n. W. And knew that i was rapidly nearing the Bay though unable to distinguish land from water at the Elevation i had attained Wlinich i suppose was about 20,000 feet i therefore thought it most prudent to retain the Gas As 1 had no ballast to dispose of but the grapples till i considered it probable that had i gained sufficiently upon the opposite Shore of the Bay to allow for the action of the Easterly Breeze which i i conjectured would be blowing brisk near the Earth. I was fortunate in the calculation. Had made for upon my discharging Gas my descent was not so rapid but that i was carried due West for the last fifteen minutes of my voyage directly in a line Over a narrow strip of Woodland in which the Anchor secured it self at about ten minutes after six o clock. In this situation i was by a negro who was As he , in search Quot of some big Ting Dat he seen Light on de Trees Quot perceiving me As i Learned from the car about to ask his Aid he exclaimed Quot Gorry mighty if Dere hair it a Wax Figger in de b look May i i assured him that the figure was composed of flesh and blood and As he casting about which Way to hold me Down a number of gentlemen had come up to whose courteous assistance i am deeply indebted for the facility of my descent and the Complete Security of the balloon and its appendages effected by the prompt est with which several Trees were felled by the negro at the augg eation of the proprietor. The spot where i Ligated was on the prop Fame rests so will be its durability and i am of opinion that the executive sat of the nation could neither strengthen nor illumine it. The adoration he receives is adoration to Talent and not to place with its fleeting pomp and circumstance and the difference Between him and current politicians is As great As is the superiority of mind to matter. The remarks of the writer upon or Van Buren s position and claims Are in my opinion just and might be exaggerated without going beyond the True statement. If the whigs can maintain Union in their own ranks he stands indeed upon a Rotten basis. The magic of names and terms cannot sustain him. The a nere pretension of democratic party principles falsified by private practice and Public measures will be found to prove a frail support. The Hickory by which he Drew up to his Pinacle of Mountain Fame has retired. It does not rear its top above the us Tomit and invite the tottering occupant to lean. His old Patron is now Well nigh powerless. Only the dim reflection of a fading Charm survives. Or. Van Buren must fall his party is already worn its decay has begun and like decay in All its forms will move downward with accelerating Force. Premises repeatedly made and repeatedly violated a professions often proclaimed but rarely Vii died expectations raised but never answered Hopes invited and Ever disregarded have signalized its Ascendancy. As yet elevated and sustained by the Glare of one Man s now when those achievements Are left behind and present interests deter Imine preferences the people look to other or it rans for the talents and Wisdom suited to their o . The administration has repeatedly fallen into its own snare and the people a e aware of it. It has Laid ruthless hands on Long tried and Well proved systems and with shameless impertinence and audacity has condemned their founders and supporters to political and civil infamy. It has acknowledged the Folly the pernicious Folly of its own experiments and yet Wilh Brazen boldness invites the people to repose in others yet untried and except by the crude speculation of its own reprobate wis Dom. It is natural then that the people should look to another Quarter for provident and faithful servants. It is natural a Fiat they should inquire who among the Wise and deserving of the land is most Wise and most deserving. Sir. Webster and or Clay Are deep in the hearts and High in the esteem of Tho nation. All viev them Wilh a Noble Pride and smile to rank the in Wilh the mightiest and of every age. By i relatively they Are not alike nor in reference to the country As respects its various sections do they weigh in an equal balance. I am of opinion that of the two or. Clay is the Man whom the whigs she uld adopt As candidate for the next presidency As being most Strong in the party generally and should he succeed As Best calculated to unite All hearts cordially in those great principles of political re did he re Criminate form and National policy which it is the Effort of his party to promote. But in this i would no be understood to insinuate an opinion of the Rufe a Iorii of or. Webster to a statesman. I 1 Ould not express it. In respect to Merit for political in to Grimy and patriotism i rank them both on Tito same High basis. % t propose to Ruia a comparison of these two great men and Lovak each 0 be what i deem i proper level. It is known that they Are characterized by intrinsic qualities materially at variance or. Webster s mind seems originally to beat if not stronger yet More precisely Tern de. Its various elements were combined singular exactness a ready perception w. Ted with Strong contemplative Power a him at once to grasp the most abstruse principles and by a Chain of steady and uninterrupted induction to pursue them to their True and just results. An almost unerring judgment enables him to compare and compound them with an accuracy equalled by few political philosophers. Add to this the simplicity and perfect consistency which such Unity of results assumes and Tho Perspicuity which his own explications give to them and in consideration thereof we May Challenge the biography of every age to exhibit a mind of nobler cast. Or. Clay s mind is Strong Active and energetic to a degree perhaps hardly surpassed but it suggests one of those Reinar Kable results of Chance which in the natural world some times affords a spa Cimen of singular attraction. It is a mind of very Brill Paul texture is Well As of Well balanced Iii powerful parts. But doubtless the intellectual difference of these men is caused to a great extent by a difference of education. Or. Webster though he was reared in the severe school of self Reliance has been subjected to a regular course of intellectual discipline and thus a mind of Superior original Force was drilled to a system of close and laborious action. Or Clay is emphatically a self made Man. His dazzling Genius arose to is High Eminence by Force of a practical Energy which rarely combines with such a Quality. Or. Webster is a logician a deep and cautious Reasoner a profound and successful expounded of general principles. These qualities give him a character As a lawyer and a statesman. With them he unites others which have created for him a renown As an orator As lasting As human admiration lie has already erected a Monument in the productions of his own mind which the american will gaze upon centuries hence Wilh emotions of heart Felt interest and proudly inscribe him on the same Page with the roman Cicero and the British Burke. In an intellectual Point of View or. Clay sex cells As a tactician. In this he has doubtless been unrivalled among american Siat Sinen and this is a prominent reason Why of All others he May be preferred As president of the United states. But i believe or. Clay owes this characteristic less to a great Power of natural invention than to the Peculiar circumstances in which he has been placed made available by his extraordinary practical sagacity. Thrown Early into the wilderness when the unaided labor of the hand supplied the wants of life and when All its conveniences and luxuries were the immediate product of Domestic invention he was urged to project those sch pcs of National improvement which have embalmed i name in the hearts of like West and in the veneration of his country. It was time influences around him which gave much of the Peculiar texture to his intellectual character. Or. Clay s services Ara recorded on moving monuments in every Quarter of the confederacy they Are incorporated in the wondrous machinery of Northern manufactories in the Prosperity and Promise of Southern and Western agriculture and in the magnitude of internal improvements All Over the Union. But the Progress of improvement is so great and its measures to numerous that any particular scheme though of Tho most weighty con sequence must inevitably be eclipsed by the multitudes which succeed hence one of the most important causes of or. Clay s Fame is a failing one. It must eventually fall behind the accumulative claims of succeeding patriots now then is the Lime to Reward him. But the estimation in which i hold the qualities which characterize the mind of Ebster is such that i am forced to think that in the retrospect of the future his name will stand the most prominent on the record of great men. He need achieve no bloody Victory a he need raise no lofty Structure to Overlook the Earth s circumference and attract the eyes of Distant nations. He is a mighty Structure of himself. He is not the properly of a panic Lar age. Ilis intellect will by reckoned among the few which Are equally revered in every period of time.
