The yield of cotton this year in
British India is estimated at
$125,000,000 in gold. The Gov
ernment has also established 19,
000 schools, attended by 600,000
native children. There are al- t
ready 6000 miles of railway in
operation, and it is now proposed
to build 9000 miles more, at the a
rate of 300 miles a year. These t
facts indicate the rapid progress
of European ideas in India.
1 The Year's Eleotion.
We copy as follows. from the
SNew York Leader of the 17th:
· We believe that it is afact, says
the. New Heaven Register, that
for the past forty years no party
a which has been defeated in the
Y Presidential election has recover
s ed from its defeat in time to suc
cessfully contest the next fall
elections. The party which elects
a President generally has pretty
fair sailing for one year at least.
u The President does not enter
upon his duties till the following
March. New Hampshire holds
d its election in March, just after
y the President is inaugurated.-
Is Connecticut follows in April,
1- Tennessee in August (only five
months after the inauguration),
e California in September, and the
' Middle and Western States in
ts October and November. The
r- President does not have time to
it aleniate many friends, and the
enthusiasm of the victors usually
£ takes them through without diffi
This year has been a partial
exception to the rule. A month
ly after Grant's inauguration the
n Democrats came within a few
it hundred of carrying Connectieu.t
e Next came Virginia. The con
etest was between Wells, Radical,
e and. walker, Conservative. The
- administration saw fit to throw
me its influence in favor of the form
'a er and still he was defeated by'
r- twenty thousand majority. The
fruits of this victory, inca nation
al sense, were the election of two
nI Conservative Senators and the
as defeat of the Radical scheme to
disfranchise the people .of the
South. Then came the election
in Tennessee. That' State had
`e given Grant over thirty thousand
in November, 1868. Grant's ad
ministration took an active part
in the canvass, but the result was
an overwhelming defeat of the
party that carried the State the
previous year. The victory was
complete, securing a Democratic
Senator in place of Mr. Fowler,
1e and giving the. Democrats fuill
a- control of the State. -
California gave Grant a major
d ity of over five hundred in 1808,
and 1869 gave a-Democratic ma
jority of over ten thousand. If
the vote were to be taken to-day
between Grant and Seymour, the
former would be defeated' by
thousands. The State is now as
d certainly Democratic as in 1860.
Here we, have two States which
have changed their verdict within
The October elections disap
pointed both parties. The Re
it. publicans were certain of victory,
s, and the Democrats hopeful. The
s, former carried Pennsylvan'i and
e, Ohio, but they had nothing to
e- spare. Their mnajority in Penn
sr sylvania was less than five tho~
e sand, and only 7500 in, Ohio. And
Le these two States had given Grant
g, a majority of about seventy thou
!r sand only eleven months before.
ae The only changes produced by
Le the November elections were in
te favor of the Democrats. The
st Republicans carried. Massachu
-- setts, Wisconsin and Minnesota,
:e as they have done at every elec
t- ion for the past ten years, and
in the Democrats carried New York,
le. New Jersey and Maryland. The
rs .Democrats gain in both the Re
11 publican and Democratic States.
The Legislature of New York is
d Democratic in.both branches for
I the first time since 1854. The
returns from illinois are not com
plete enough to make it certain
_ which side will have the majority.
SThese results have been accom
plished in one year. If there is
t anything in them to afford en
e couragement to the party which
Ssupported Gen. Grant in 1860 it
has escaped our observation. The
real contest will be in 1870.

J, commenced last Monday evening
a under the Rev. C. F. Evans hav
5* ing been interrupted by inclement
r weather, and a pre-engagement
of the Union Church, will be re
.sumed next week.

e quent divine, and his zeal and
energy in the cause of christiani
ty entitles him to a hearing from
- all denominations.
