THE HARVEST AS SEEN FROM A BALLOON. Mr. Joseph Simmons, aeronaut, writos from 15, Stockwell Park-road:—I think you would be gratified in informing your readers of the nature of my obser- vations. It will contribute to remove much uneasi- ness from their minds as to the state of the "crops. In passing over the central portion of the county of Lincoln, on Saturday, the 30th ult., a remarkably clear atmosphere surrounded me, opening to my view an area of at least three thousand square miles, a very great portion of vyhich was covered with corn. I have much satisfaction in saying that the colour of the crops indicated that they are ready to be cut. There was certainly a sheet of water which "sup- plants the place of dry ground, but it did not cover a square mile. It looked like a small patch of Quicksilver. The German Ocean appeared like a i bright steel reaphook along the gracelul sweep oi the I Lincolnshire coast, and this formed our horizon in 1 the east, surmounted by a long dense mass of leaden clouds which had passed over Lincolnshire an hour Or two before.
