eek sends the Charleston Mercury the following suggestion, which it publishes in its editorial columns, with the comment that it certainly possesses the merit of intense originality: Among the many projects for destroying the blockade the following plan seems to me to combine less risk of life than would attend any other with an equal chance of success. Prepare a number of large iron shells, loaded with one hundred pounds of powder and a due proportion of destructive missiles. Let the shells be heavier on one side, and let this side be fitted with nipples for percussion-caps, communicating with the charge. Take these shells up in balloons, and when at a convenient altitude above the blockading squadron, allow them to descend upon the enemy's decks. The shells should be of sufficient weight to penetrate the deck of any vessel upon which they might be dropped. Even if this plan were impracticable upon the seas, it might serve to clear our harbors, such as Tybee and Port Royal.
