- Mr. Glïislner, in Englaud, recently made a scietitific ascont in a balloonin a rain storm, to study the rain in the place where it comes from : "On the ground the rain drops were as large as four penny pieces upon his note book; a little higher still it was a Scotch mist, or wet fog ; yet ingher the fog was dry ; and at 3,500 feet the balioon was out of rain tho' it was falling on the earth. Above theni even at that elevation; was the stratum of cloud whieh soience, without ever having seen, had daringly predicted as always above "the overoast" of a rainy sky; and at the height of 1,000 feet, in deseending, the balioon was in a current wind from one qnarter, and the car in another from one nearly opposite - southest and southwest respectively - in other vrorda, the Columbus of the clouds had sailed-into the eddy between the ooufluent earronts of atiuosphere which were miogling their temperatures, and thus disengaging some of their moisture for the behüof of the cornfield and picnic parties below."
