A balloon trip. In the issues of Tho big Nav papers of june 4, 5 and 6 of the year 1802 will let a found reports of professor Aud his bal Loon a the Princess a Aud accounts of a successful ascension and each Day thereafter for the next ten Days the papers re corded the fact that a up to this time Noth ing has yet been heard of the two men who Macle t he ascent on Tho Bel i turned up in Bombay in May of the year record cd i after a year and a half in other portions of India and very soon t hereafter it was announced in the papers that a professor Madam the celebrated French aeronaut would soon make an As reunion from the Public three or four Days later i ran across the Protea soy Aud i was gratified and surprised to find him to to none other than in old Friend whom i had travelled with in China j in was an English speaking Frenchman who had seen the whole world and taken in All sorts of adventures Ami had Pur chased the balloon of a genuine aeronaut who had reached Bombay with tile idea of giving ascension in All the larger towns in Hie country. Tho aeronaut had fallen sick been despoiled of Bis Cash and he sold Bis balloon to Madam and quit the country in disgust. Madam was now going into ballooning for the adventures it might bring Aud when he invited me to Nike the first trip with him i was not ave seconds in giving Iii in my Promise. The so of june was a fete Day and the City was filled with an immense crowd. The balloon was new very Strong and Madam had plans beyond a Mere ascension. We packed i he car with provisions enough to last a. Week took along rifles revolver and ammunition and made All preparations for a Long journey the prevailing winds in Bombay from May to july Art from the South or up t he arabian sea and so we privately counted on being wafted Inland perhaps to Hie turkish Boundary. The people in general had i he idea that we would descend within a few Miles of the town and More than a score of men came Forward and volunteered to make the trip with of. Without her Burden of baggage the balloon could easily have carried five of six men. As it was she shot up like a Bird when All was ready to let go Anil in a few seconds Hie City and Harbor were far below los. We at once started on our Inland journey Laking a Pace of about fifteen Miles an Bour and for three hour everything worked smoothly and Well. We Atmo to ascent at Sham 2. At ? of clock to met a counter current of ail from the North and in five minutes the balloon had begun to drive Back to the South. Ballast was thrown out and we leaped up to find the current still stronger above. To then settled Down As near the Earth As it was Safe to go but still we drove Back Over our course. Seeing that we had to go ballast was Flung out to give us a higher Altitude and we moved to the Northwest at the rate of ten Miles an hour.1 in an hour we could discern the sea and its coast line and As evening came we left the land and hovered Over the Gulf of Cam Bay. This was the last seen of the balloon on Shore. While Madam had never made an ascension before to say nothing of the management of a balloon he had no difficulty in handling it and neither of us was at All timid. It was a serious matter to find the balloon sailing out to sea but we ate oui supper at an Altitude of half a mile and hoped for a change of wind. At about in of clock our Progress then being not Over ten Miles an hour and a sort of fog shutting out sight of everything below us i went to sleep. Madam was to arouse me at is or i to go on watch but at Sunrise both of us opened our eyes and turned out at the same moment. He had fallen asleep soon after i did and the balloon had been left to take care of itself. The Compass showed her to be beading due West at a gentle Pace but in another half hour she might have been in the sea everything be ing saturated and heavy with Dew. We were Down where we could plainly make out several steamers and sailing Craft and the balloon was evidently an object of great curiosity to the people of Board some of them. Ballast was thrown out until we reached an Altitude of 2,000 feet above the sea and the Sun soon dried the Dew and rendered the balloon very buoyant. A stiff Breeze also got up from the East and by 7 of clock we were making Railroad Speed through the air bound for the coast of Arabia. During the entire Day which was a very pleasant one our Craft took sole care of herself never varying Over fifty feet in bet Altitude and driving so steadily that our had but to shut his eyes to imagine that she was standing still. From our Perch we looked Down on Many Craft during the Day and were consoled by the thought that in Case of Accident we were pretty sure to be picked up. When night came we added soc feet to our Altitude Asau offset to the Dew. And As the weather was Fine we both Lay Down to sleep. I awoke twice during the night but to find All quiet and when i turned out just at Sunrise it was to find the arabian coast almost under our feet. Had the wind held steadily during the night we should have reached the coast at or near Mir at but it had changed two or three Points and drifted us higher up. As soon As the Sun had dried the Dew we descended until not More than i xxx feet above the land Aud then we made out a very Bleak and sterile country under our feet. We were of the Nort Heastern Edge of the arabian desert and it was a Good hour lie fore we a w any signs of civilization. Meanwhile both of tis knowing what sort of people we had to Deal with we had loaded All the firearms and made a pile of such baggage As con by be thrown away in Rase we wanted a higher Altitude. If our air ship had lost any great amount of Gas up to this time we could not perceive it. Here and there was a wrinkle in the silk to prove that the safety valve had been petted to give us a drop but it did not seem As if an ounce had escaped by any other Means. We had no sooner left the water than the Breeze began to subside Aud our Pace was reduced to live or six Miles an hour. We knew that counter current would soon be met with Aud both were looking Over the Edge of the Basket it the moving Panorama below when we suddenly espied a native Village. It was rather the Camp of some wandering tribe All the shelters being of Canvas or skin. We saw camels asses goats and horses with Many people moving about and we had Only got sight of them when they saw us. Some fell Down and others ran away and we were laughing at their fright when we heard the sing of a Bullet and the report of a gun. A Over with the ballast a shouted Madam and the next instant we were so far above them that their horses appeared to be Mere specks on the Earth. A we have lost the Breeze and Are standing still a said my companion As i went Over to him. A i done to know what those Fellows take us for but they seem bound to bring us there were four or five of the arabs shooting at us at this time Aud now and then we could catch the noise of their bullets. I f we went higher there was a fear of meeting with a current of air that might set us off Over the sea again and As the arabs continued to Blaze away we then hanging right above the Camp Madam opened the safety valve with the remark Hager i Moths 13 n. Alamo and 12 Losoya its. Cheapest furniture House in Texas. Ban Antonio has been booming for some time and is destined to be the great Metroplis of the Bouth and West and we have been Rooming furniture All along the line.

We done to want to kill but lets give them a Good As we dropped Down we began firing Over the Edge of the Basket Down among the flocks and in two minutes there was a rumpus which set us both laughing. The entire Village made a Rush and abandoned everything. Borne of the men leaped upon their horses and galloped away while others fled on foot Aud women and Chil Dren ran for a Grove near by and reached it to throw themselves prostrate e on the Earth. For an hour we Hung above the place As if anchored there and then a gentle current carried us to the northward into the province of Muscat. About mid afternoon while sailing along a thousand feet above the Earth at a slow rate we came to an open country which seemed to vie destitute of human life and Madam announced that we would descend and replenish our Stock of water and see what was to be seen. After the Anchor had trailed along the ground for a Hundred Yards it caught in the limbs of a prostrate tree and we soon hauled our Craft Down and secured her. We Wert within ten rods of a Small water course and while i yes filling our Keg Madam shot a couple of fat Birds and we built a fire and cooked and ate them on the spot. We then gave the balloon a care Ful inspection and were considerably cast Down at the result of our investigations.
