JUixoox Uaui:. Last evening, there waa
a billuon race from Place d'Armes, which,
for tin tlmo being, created no little excite
meiit. One balloon was that beneath which
Mr. Moran t has made to many ascensions,
and the other a new factory cotton concern,
Inflated with vaporized alcohol. Moral's
balloon was filled, a utunl, with gas. and
was the favorite in betting circles, as It pre
sented the most approved appearanco In tho
ribbed rotundity of Its silky sides. Tho
other was under, or rather above, tho man
agement of an Engllthmau named Wells.
At the start, alcohol took the lead, as If to
"get high" wa natural to It; but when any
body, human or otherwise, gets high under
the Influence of alcohol, ho, she, or It, Is
likely to havo a speedy fall. Such was tho
case with the balloon which took up Mr.
I Wells. After ascending k 00 or 1,000 feet.
It stopped short, and the gau-fllled globe
passed It, and sailed off majestically In the
The turning point In the fate of alcohol
was soon reached ; cool air condensed the
vspor, and It escaped through the lower
opening of tbo balloon, which then began
fait and faster to descend. Thousands of
people, animated by an amiable deslro of
being "In at tho death" for It was almost
certain that Wells would be killed by tho
detcent ran frantically towards the spot
which promised to be tho scene of the ca
tastrophe, Ilut the full was faster than the
rush. The balloon landed on a housojust
in the rear ot the bank of Louisiana; and
Mr. Wells thinking, doubtless, that It
would be wH to do so jumped from hi
basket and saved his bacon by clinging to
the roof, leaving his intoxicated balloon to
take cars of itself. Down tumbled tho shape-i
less mass into a yard, and Wells looked
about to enjoy tho excitement which he bad
created. Beneath, every available ipot was
crowded by a dense mass of humanity, em
bracing all sorts of crinolinlty wedged in by
all sort of masculinity.
One man who, fn bla excitement, hod gone
up to A bouse-top td seo tho fall of the tero
uaut, fell himself, and got pretty badly hurt.
no was carried off to a drug-store, and the
rumor ran that Wells wsskllled. This made
tbq outsldo excitement still more Intense,
and WelU), from his vru on the roof, fol
lowed with his eye the follower of. what
they supposed his own mutilated corpse,
which was not a corpse after all, aad not
Wells at all. Eventually, Mr. Wells got
down from hi refuge, picked up bla bal
loon aud walked, blessing his star that he
was able to do so.
The other balloon crossed the river, and
made a tuccessful descent in Hit &gi
