It is presumed that he will spend the 25th, being Sunday, also in the place. THE ELECTION. Below we giva the returns of the election in this county, as far as heard from. By compari son with last year's result, it will be seen that Packer's majority is less than Buchanan's was ia the same districts. Leonard, Independent Democrat, who was run on a question of local interest, so far as this county was concerned, will probably have 400 to COO majority over Wilcox, Democratic nominee, whilst the chan ces are that Spyker, the other regular Demo crat, will have but a small majority over Mat son, Independent American Republican candi date for the Legislature. This estimate is based on the presumption that there will bo a proportionate vote and result in the townships to hear from, to those given. We have no ret...

FUN, FACT & FANCY. . A Yousg Ladt Takes a Bath. A corres pondent of the Baltimore Republican gets out the following : Th bathing house for ladies, J at Cape May, is situated but a short distance from that for gentlemen, and through the open palings yon have faint glimpses of the Naiades who, it the water is still, are by no means still themselves, but keep up a perpetual squealing and splashing which frighten the crabs and fish fairly out to sea. Readers have, doubtless, heard ot the Georgia uniform a shirt collar and spurs. ' We saw a lady's dress of a simi lar character, admirably adapted for bathing purposes. This beautiful contrivance is a skeleton dress composed of three hoops, fas tened together at a distance of a foot apart by tape strings, the upper rim or hoop coming up to the waiBt of the wearer, and tho other hang ing by tho strings at the distance below which we have named. The young lady who wore this comfortable apparel, had thrown over it a light wrapper, which ha...

Every candid man, if be inquires critically into the canses which lie at the bottom of our present financial troubles, and the deplorable condition of all branches of business, mustac- ' knowledge that those difficulties spring prima rily from the existing tariff, which is utterly inadequate to protect the industrial interests of our country. So apparent is this truth, that Mr. Buchanan himself, we see it stated somewhere, attributes the distress in part to the redaction that was made in the tariff da ring last winter. Over-trading, excessive im portations, a consequent drain of gold from our country, and, finally, monetary and busi ness embarrassments, are all in their turn at tributable mainly to a lack of proper protec tion to our manufacturers. This is too plain to require special argument. Every one can see that if our wholesale dealers can buy goods " a...

Each fault they'll try to magnify, Yet seeming to bemoan The mant within a brother's eye, Are blinded to their own.

About the middle of October, when the first killing frost came, 1 cut it., though it was not ripe, the seed bad hardly began to change color. Having no mill or press convenient, I cut a bout two thirds of the largest part of the stalks in pieces two or three inches in length, put them in a large kettle, and extracted the sap by boiling. The ground planted contained two perches, which produced above two hundred stalks of the cane; and I had about two gallons thi...

Smith, for alleged criminal intercourse with his wife prior to her marriage with Smith This is another witness of the frightful preva lence of crime in our land. Virtue seems to be at a low ebb, and human life is regarded as of little value. Their destruction scarcely disturbs the moral sense of community ; and bo vitiated has the public taste grown that nothing appears to be relished so much by the reader, as narratives of murders, accounts of seductions, scandalous gossip, &c.

We have recently been making inquiries about the prospects of Che lumber trade the ensuing spring. The ex isting financial troubles must necessarily have a depressing effect, as the eastern dealers will fiud it difficult to raise funds, without paying ruinous rates of discount, to pay the balances cow due or falling due, let alone making fur ther purchases. Another thing worthy of at tention is, that a considerable portion of last years' stock remains unused in the hands of the consumers. With these facts before them, our heavy dealers, who have heretofore been in the habit of advancing money to pay the expenses of making timber, &c, will be tardy about doing so now. Indeed, one of the he...

The oftener a piece of ground in fallow is plowed and stirred, the better results will be obtained, and winter fallows, if the ground is left in the best shape to receive the action of the frost, are olten productive ot absolutely as tonishing results. Certain soils are not bene fitted by fall plowing so as to lie up loose in ridges during the winter. Such are light san dy soils or soils upon which there is little or no drainage ; but almost all our ordinary loa rnv. eravelly, or even peaty soils, are thrown in ridges and exposed to the action of the el ements during winter with great profit.
