¥aafouw f ndlfpetiflfttt, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 11, IMB. Presidential Klertion. The great Straggle nt the ballot box which occurred on the "tli inst., is over, and the contending parties are busy canvassing the results. On Wednes day the news indicated a democratic victory, and the leading papers of the Country conceded Tilden's election, but the news of Thursday put a different phase on the political horizon and some of the leading democrats conceded the election ot Hayes and Wheeler. Enough is already known to indicate that this is the closest Presedential contest in the history of the country. It may be several days yet before the great issue is definitely settled. The Oregonian of Friday morning makes up the fol lowing table of electorial votes: SI'KK FOR B4YBS.

Influence- of the Stock on Wine. A writer in the Adelaide Observer em phasizes the truth that to succeed in wine making there must be good grapes, in the following words: The nature of the vine stock certainly plays the chief and most important part in the production of wines, It it unde niably to tin? quality of the fruit that nil lv st wines in the world owe their superiority. If you were to take away Carbenet from Modoc, Pinot from Bur gundy, Pedro Xiniense from Xeres, and replace them by Black Portugal, Gre nache, Mutaro, Gottasis or Sweetwater, you would only get quite second-rate and common wine. In nearly all nhe great vitical centers two totally different classes of wine are produced fine and superior wines, and common wines. These two fine species of wine are never produced by the same kind of grape. Starting with this principle, we may ar range th<! different varieties of vines in two categories - line and common stocks. It is easy to take note of tlie difference betwee...

Woman's Nature. Homo wives are not happy who appa rently have good husbands. They nave married men who are sober, ii dnstrious, economical, good providers, and who arc respected and esteemed l>y their neighbors as good citizens. Where, then, is the trouble? These men do not understand woman's nature. She is em phatically emotional. Her affections are very strong. It has been said that love is only a part of man's nature, but it is a woman's life. She is not willing to take anything for granted. Do not, then, he chary of affection's language. Tell iier you love her, and show her by your every act that you mean what you say. If there comes a bright, pleasant afternoon, go to tho house and take her with you on n buggy ride; no matter if you are busy planting corn, you can get a man to work all the afternoon for fifty cents. Talk to her of old times; let her see that you live to make her happy— that she holds the first place in your af fections. I'raise her attempts to please you. Lo...

George Stephenson's First Railroad. There was once a man, who was born at Newcastle-upon-Tyne, who was a common coal-digger." This man had an Immense oonstruotiveness, which dis played itself in pulling his watch to pieces and putting it together again; in making a pair of shoos w hen he hap pened to be some days without occupa tion; Anally—here there is a great gup in my story —it brought him in tho ca pacity of an engineer before a commit tee oi' the House of Commons, with his head full of plans for constructing a railroad from Liverpool to Manchester. It so happened that to the quickest and most powerful perceptions ami concep tions, to tho most indefatigable indus try ami perseverance, and the most tic curate knowledge of the phenomena of nature as they affect his peculiar labors, this man joined an utter want of the " gift of gab;" he could no more ex plain to others w hat he meant to do ami how he meant to do it. than he could fly; and therefore the members of the lloitse of C...

Flirtatious nml Stinting Rinlii. The latest London madness has in fected the country, und booh no pro vineiul town will bo without its rink. It is easy to understand that the skating rink should be lull <>f fascination for the young and vigorous; that they should delight to rush swiftly through the fresh air. In one point tho skating rmk can claim a great advantage over tho ball-room. Partners are by no means ant ssity. A plain girl, there fore, does not tind herself at the same disadvantage as at a dance. She need not wait beside her chaperon for part ners who may never come, nor has she the mortification of contrasting the empty blank of her own card with the well-tilled list, of her pretty neighbor. In the rink she can buckle wings to her fei t and pursue eldest sons as swiftly as her fairer sisters. She can exercise equally far-sighted calculation, and manage to fall as picturesquely and as helplessly when the heir to twenty thou sand a year passes her by in a lonely corne...
