Balloon trip — rapid Traveling.

--Mr. R. Wells, who ascended from this city last Saturday afternoon, landed at Hampton at 6 o'clock, having been in the air two hours and a quarter. This is the longest ærial voyage ever made in this section, and the time made is extraordinary. By the route he took, we suppose he must have traveled about eighty miles.
