Does "glide" mean "slide"?

At the same séance a quarter of an hour later the figure again appeared: The apparition then floated in the air and alighted on the table, rapidly glided about, and thrice bent her beautiful figure with graceful bows,each bending deliberate and low, the head coming within six inches of my face. The dress rustled (as silk rustles) with every movement. The face was partially veiled as before. The visibility then became invisible, slowly disappearing like the former materialization.

    Glide is more like float through the air.
    The apparition quickly floated around the room.
    Glide gives the idea of smooth movement.
