--A very large balloon was seen to pass over this city about 3½ o'clock yesterday evening. It may have been the notorious "Professor Lowe," one of the ærial corps enlisted by Lincoln to aid in subduing the South. If so, we advise the people wherever he touches terra firma to give him something to remember them by. As a spy, by the rules of war he deserves death. He once started from Cincinnati and landed in South Carolina.--Balloons are given to the enactment of strange feats. If it was the "professor," let him be used — and not in the easiest way, either.
