The balloon accident yesterday was caused by the inexperience of the aeronaut, in not allowing for the great expansion of gas consequent upon his rapid ascent. He had clutched the valve-rope to pull it, to allow the gas to escape, when he heard an explosion. Ho thought of jumping out, but found that tho parachute carne into play. JTo doubt the parachute

saved his Ufe.
