Commandek Cheyne, of tho Royal

in Chickering Hall, New York, illustrat

Pole by balloon. Cheyne was an officer
in three Franklin-search expeditions.
He desires to be accompanied by Lieu
tenant Schwatka. The idea is to go in
vessels in the spring, until travel by that
process becomes dangerous, and then to
continue in balloons, three in number,
each balloon carrying three men, a
sledge, Esquimaux dogs, provisions, and
instruments. The distance calculated
at 696 miles, can be made in eighteen to
twenty-four hours, at the rate of thirty
nine miles per hour.
In 1757 Frederick the Great marched
about 160 miles 20 days; and again, after
Rossbarh, a little greater distance in 15
days, but lost 300 men through exhaus
tion. In 1760, with 40,000 men and
1,000 wagons, lie accomplished about 80
miles in 5 days. The same year the
Austrian General Lasoy, with 15,000 men
“ knocked off” 180 miles in 10 days.
Prince Eugene, of Wurtemberg, to re
lieve Berlin, made a forced march on
the 4th of October, 1760, of 3G miles 1
day. This latter does not approach the
i'eat of the Sixth Corps—3s miles in 19
hours. It may be remembered by many
of those who served with the Army of
the Potomac that Bimey’s First (Red
Diamond) division of the Third Corps
had won for themselves the nickname
of “ Bimey’s Foot Cavalry,” and this
title was subsequently applied to the
Second Corps after the Third Corps was
combined with it. In regard to the
Third Corps, Army of the Potomac, the
writer feels that it deserves equal pre
eminence with the Third Corps of the
French Army under Napoleon in the
campaign of 1806. Of the latter organi
zation, Marshal Davoust said to Napol
eon during this, the Jena campaign,
when the Emperor expressed his ad
miration of its achievements and his
grief at its heavy losses, “Sire, the
soldiers of the Third Corps, will ever be
to you what the Tenth Legion was to
Caesar.” (Alison, ii., 457, 2). The ac
tivity of the Third and of the combined
Second-Third Corps rivaled that of
Oudinot’s Grenadier’s, in October, 1805,
when they actually outmarched cavalry,
accomplishing 12 leagues a day, and
contributed chiefly to the capture of
the Austrian Archduke Ferdinand’s col
umn, which had escaped from Ulm. In
the pursuit of the Sixth Corps kept up
with the cavalry on the 6th—so says Col.
Archabald Hopkins, Thirty-seventh
Massachusetts Volunteers, in his account
of (Little) Sailor’s Creek, 6th of April,
1865—and it is claimed that the Fifth
Corps had likewise equaled the speed of
the horsemen, prior to the concentration
at Jetersville, evening of the sth. Tue
infantry, both of the Army of the Poto
mac and of the Army of Northern Vir
ginia, justified Lieut-Gen. Baron Am
bert’s magnificent eulogy on the foot
soldiers, whom he styles “ the sinews of
an army.” Gen. Roche-Aymon says
that cavalry is to infantry what poetry
is to prose, and, he meant exactly what
these words express. It is not a bad
comparison, inasmuch as the world
might go on without poetry, while it
would be utterly impossible to get along
without prose. Moreover, good poetry
is very rare, whereas excellent prose is
not. Poetry, too, while all very fine, is
at best no more to real life than what

Astronomers divide meteors into sev
eral classes—aerial meteors, as winds,
tornadoes, etc.; aqueous meteors, as
fogs, rain, snow, hail, etc.; luminous
meteors, or those due to the action of
elements in the air, as rainbows, halos,
parhelias, milage's, etc.; electrical
meteors, as lightnings, auroras, etc.; and
igneous meteors as shooting or falling
stars, star-showers, bolides or fire-balls,
aerolites or meteorites, etc. In present
usage, says Professor New’ton, the term
meteor is generally limited to the last
group, or to the igneous meteors. The
meteorites are all evidently fragments,
not separate formations. They are, says
the same authority, in the heavens, to
some extent, at least, grouped in streams
along the orbits of known comets, and
hence have a common origin with them.
The continuity of these streams, the
double and multiple character of Biela's
and other comets, and the steady dimin
ution of comets in brilliancy of success
ive returns, seems to argue a continuous
breaking up of the comet into fragments
by some cause, probably by the sun’s
heat. This view is strenghened by the
fact that the meteoric irons and stones
bring with them carbonic acid, which is
known to form so prominent a part of
the comet’s tail. It is now universally
admitted that igneous meteors are caused
by small bodies which have been travel
ing about the sun in their orbits, but
now come into the earth’s atmosphere,
and, in general the shape of broken
fragments of stone. The outside is
usually covered with a thin black crust,
which is evidently due to a melting of
the surface in the atmosphere. There
have been found at various times and
places, loose iron masses that are as
sumed to be of meteoric origin, because
tin ir peculiar form, their peculiar chemi
cal composition, and their peculiar
crystaline structure are like those of the
iron masses that have been seen in sev
eral instances to come down from me
teors. Sliooting-stars are seen on any
clear, moonlight night; they leave be
hind, many of them, a bright cloud of
phosphorescent light ; the meteors and
their trains have various colors—white,
green, blue, yellow, scarlet, etc.; the
duration of the flight is generally less
than a second of time, but the brighter
ones may last several seconds. The me
teorites contain no elements, so far as we
know, which have not been found on the
earth, but these elements are com
pounded differently from any terrestrial
minerals; sometimes they reach the
earth, and again are consumed in their
mrse.—Chicago Inter Ocean.
An Ingenious Rascal.
The theater of Ofen (Buda-Pesth) was
the scene of his debut, though this was
made in a loge, not on the stage. It ap
peal s that a certain Hungarian countess,
well known for her riches and beauty
(the same spirited lady who seconded
her brother in a duel) graced with her
presence the performance at the Aresa,
or summer theater. On one of her fair
fingera my lady wore two splendid dia
mond rings, exactly like each other.
During an entr ’ acte there presented
himself in her-box a big fellow m gorge
ous livery—six feet of the finest flunkey
imaginable. Quoth he, in finest Hunga
rian : “My mistress, Princess P—, has
sent to your ladyship, to ask the loan of
one of your rings for five minutes. Her
highness has observed them from her
box opposite and is very anxious to have
one made after the pattern.” Without
an instant’s hesitation the countess
handed a ring to “Jeames,” who bowed
with respectful dignity and retired. The
performance over, the two great ladies
met on the staircase, and the countess
begged her friend to keep the ring at her
convenience. “What ring, my dear?”
Denouement! Tableau! The “pow
dered menial!” was no flunky at all,
but a thief, and the ring was gone. The
police were informed of the impudent
trick. Justice seemed to have over
taken the culprit in a very few strides,
for next morning the countess, while
still cn robe-de-chambre, received a let
ter informing her that the thief had been
caught and the ring found on his per
son. “Only,” added the note, “the
man stoutly denies the charge and de
clares the ring to be his own. To clear
up all doubt pray come at once to the
police station, or send the duplicate ring
by bearer.” To draw the second ring
from the finger and intrust it joyfully
to the messenger—a fine fellow in full
police uniform, together with a hand
some “tip,” for the glorious news, was
the work of a moment. Only when my
lady an hour later betook herself radiant
to the police-station to recover her jew
els, a slight mistake came to light.
“Well, my rings? I could not come to
myself the instant I got your letter.”
“ What letter, madam ?” Denouement!

The remarkable discoveries of Jenner,
Pasteur, and others, showing that some
of the most fatal virulent diseases may
be rendered comparatively harmless by
inocculation with a weakened virus,
have led to the suggestion of the pos
tibility of combatting tuberculosis in
the same manner. It is now quite gen
erally believed that this disease, hue
smallpox, chicken cholera and anthrax,
is due to the very rapid increase of cer
tain minute organisms in the body, and
it seems reasonable to hope that inocu
lation with its weakened germs may
produce as favorable results as have
been achieved in the case of the other
maladies. This is an important prob
lem for science to solve.
