EDWARD REYNOLDS, Entres/# _—---I UDDUTOWI, Dllo SATURDAY MORNING, NOV. 13, 1875.

Should tbs carriers not recede from their advanoed rates and the western shippers hold to their de termination to not ship, the demand for grain in the Atlantio cities must be in creased and the price will consequently be materially advanced.

The remainder of their State ticket is probably defeated. They will have a small majority in,the Legia heavy majority last lature against a In this respect the Democrats have made great gains. • The defeat of the Republicans in 1878 could .not be claaied as a Democratic victory aa the opposition to the Republicans was a coalition of Democrats, Grangers, Re formera tnd all other opponents of the Republicans, under the name of the Reform Party.

The foregoing table gives a tie in the electoral college. Colorado, with three additional votes, may or may not be admitted in time to vote'for President, and, if admitted, will be one sf the most doubtful States in the Union. It will vote for Colorado all the time, and the candidate for President most ac ceptable to the people of that country, independent of. polities, will carry •* Nevada is given in the Republican line, but it is just as likely as not to vote Democratic New Jeraey ranks her self with the Republicans in a contest for eonnty and legialative officers, but no one dotsbts that her vote will be De mocratic if the Democraoy present good candidates and don't surpass themselves in playing the fool. North Carolina is in the Republican list because, on the popular vote for_or against a conven tion, the Republicans earned the State, althongb the Democrat! carried a ma jority of the delegates. But it must be considered that while the Republicans were thoroughly united against vention, many of the more conservative Democrats sympathised with the Re publicans on the issue, and it was not •a fair feat of party strength. The chances are ten to one that North Car olina will vote Democratic for Presi dent iu 1876, as the State is undoubt edly Democratic largely on a Tull vote. Oregon is another State in the Repub lican list that is in doubt this year, and certainly ia doubtful for 1876. Penn sylvania is a debatable State, but she has her rank fairly in the Republican line fairly this year/ In the Democratic list there are fewer doubtful States, bùt one.of them amounts to more in the electoral college than all the doubtful States in the Republioan oolumn. New York, with her thirty-five votes, may be olaased as doubtful, and will be stubbornly contested next yeaf under any circumstances. Tilden will be m the contest himself, not likely as a can didate for President, hut certainly as a candidate for Governor, and there will be exhaustive efforts made on both sides to win the struggle. The chanoes cer tainly seem to be with the Demoorats, but it is by no means sure that New York will vote for the Democratic can didate for President. Louisiana can hardly be made doubtful again by Fed eral bayonets, as a Demoeratio House will stop that sort of revolutionary .elections, and it may, therefore, be counted as certain for the Democrats. Connecticut will be contested, but it will vote Démocratie unless there should be such a sweeping tidal wave as to make her vote unimportant. Califor nia. is just jibont as doubtful as Oregon, Nevada aud Colorado in the Republi can list. It is not probable that these four States will be divided in their electoral vote. They will either be all Republican or all Democratic, as the same influences will control them to a very great degree. Whether other States will be doubtful, depends mach the issues of the Presidential con ...183 a con upon test, and tbe issues will doubtless be decided by the tendencies of publie opinion aix month* hence. If there shall be increased prostration in onr in dustriel this winter, tbe financial ques tion may lead the Democracy into a liberal position on currency, and thus wrest Ohio from tbe Republicans, make Pennsylvania doubtful and throw New York over to the Republicans. In that ease Connecticut might be made doubt ful for the Démocrate, and New York and Connecticut may be thus given to the Republicans and Pennsylvania and' Ohio secured to tho Democrats in ex change That would be giving forty one Demoeratio electoral votes to the Republicans for fifty-one Republican votes taken by the Democrats, and In diana would be snehorod in the Demo cratic column beyond even a hopeful effort to make her Republican, and Wisconsin made at least doubtful. Such is the political balance-sheet for the year that ia tbe preliminary skir mish for 1876. It is practically a drawn battle, leasing the national straggle to be decided in favor of the organization that is most wise in meeting the con victions of the people a year hence.— But what will be those convictions? What public necessities will bale iu November, 1876? This is the great problem that the politicians of the two rties must solve in advance. It may free Gabs or free soboola, or some similar «lap-trap device ; it may be a sublime trial of tbe patriotism of the people on statesmanship, integrity,econ omy and home rale, against personal domination, profligacy and oentraliza tiou, or it may be a desperate straggle turning solely on our financial and cur rency questions. No political sagacity can aeonrately foreoast the controlling issues of next year, and we shall have *>1 manner of ground and lofty turob } io Ç • nd b ? tbe leaders who are to shape the party - 0 ^ nom i ni ting conventions. regard it as settled that there wifi be but two tickets iu the field—at least but two that will be in the fight. The Be. publican and Democratic Conveutihns P.,, Qgme the ctndidateii and , B the pßd jj, e Tar j ed independent elements will take sides with one or tbe other of ! the great parties. Jf Grant should force » nomination there would probably be 1 a bolt and two Republican tickets pre iented ^ h ^ in the way HU cann j n g reservation in his White letter and the school speech he was set up to deliver at Des Moine», before the Army 1 of Tenneaeee are water-hanls, and he ; will be retired. The contest is at once too doubtful and too hopeful for tbe Republicans, and tbe eppMitiop will be defiant. Had the Republicans swept the country in 1875, as they did is $872, Grant would have been aWe to lines We matter the opposition and secure hü noiOiDttioD for a third term; or had the Democrats carried two-third* of the electoral vote this year,aa they did last, Orant conld have compassed another nomination, because his part; would hare regarded it as a forlorn hope. Bat with the electoral rote of 1875, a tie, and from forty to fifty votes doubtful each side, the Republicans will not fool with Oraut. They can throttle him now and they will, for he has no friends in the party outside of the few immediate dependents who have profited by his erratic favor. The Republicans will nominate none of the old Grant stagers, like Cockling. Morton or Blaine. They will rid themselves of the taint of Grantism unless they have lost their cunning, and present some middling man of fair re cord, like Chief Justice Waite, or Gov ernor ^lartranft The strongest man would be Governor ITawloy, and next to him we would rank Governer Hart ranft, unless be gets Cameron fairly astride of his neck, which would defeat him either in a convention or in an election. The Democrats may or may no"t end the suicidal policy that has made them hewers of wood and drawers of water for more than half a genera tion. It might* be wise for them to take Charles Francis Adams as their candidate, but it is probable that a blameless Democrat for President, with such a man as Adams, Curtin, Clay or Trumbull for Vice President, would be the winning card. Hancock, Hen dricks, Tilden and Bayard would be the prominent names to-day, with chances in favor of Hendricks, but the Washington political mill has a full winter and spring to grind out issues and available nominations, and no one can tell where the disturbed needle will point by June of next year. It is gratifying to all sincere men that both parties are pat squarely on their good behavior by the elections of 1875, and there is hope for the country because of the just deference political managers will be compelled to pay to the people in shaping the issues and candidates for 1876.

Moodt's Dramatic Talent.— A man only a few feet from the speaker fainted and bis friends, affrighted, gathered about him, and hundreds of persons to their feet. " You are dis sprang mayed, are you?" cried the speaker, almost tauntingly, to tbe crowd "You thrown into confusion and routed by the fainting of a man—by a trance that will resemble death for a few mo ments only! Wbat if that man had been struck dead—dead with bis sins upon him—dead .fithoqt repentance or confession? Then you might stand ghastly and terrified. And how many of you if death should come as sudden ly aa did that fainting fit, conld rejoice over tbe oall?" Tbe bold move of the speaker gave him the oontrul of- the bouse. The swooned man was carried out quietly, but all eyes were riveted upon the preacher, not upon the help less burden. Daring the evening six others fainted in leys conspicuous posi tions, and were borne out without the slightest disturbance being created—so quietly that only the police reoord told the number .— N ¥.

For thirty-six consecutive years Gui bord was in the employ of Louis Per rault k Sons, and for twenty years of this long period he filled the place of foreman. He was a printer of more than ordinary intelligence and ingenu ity. When the catechism and hymns for the nse of the Indians in the north ions of Canada were pre con The man whose remains western pared for the press, Guibord was salted as to the best methods for pat ting the Indian dialects into type and of making the novel matrices. Al though not conversant with the original tongues, Guibord undertook the labor of putting the—to him—meaningless writing into type ; and so well did he succeed in the difficult undertaking that for years he furnished the Roman Cath olic missions in Northwestern Canada with all the catechisms and hymn books needed for the Indians. Mr. Guibord likewise supervised all the printing for the palace of the bishop of Montreal, and for twenty years he personally su perintended the composition and print ing of the bishop's pastoral letters Guibord's post-mortem troubles arose from his refusal, at the first request of his bishop, to withdraw from a literary asaooiatioD, the *' Instifnte-Canadien," which had in its library certain books reading of which was forbidden to Cath olics by authority of the Pope. Gui bord appealed to Rome ; before an an swer came he died, and hia remains were refused interment iu the Roman Catholio cemetery at Montreal.

Balloon Disaster. — Prof. Atchiton Falls Five Hundred Feet and Sustain* Terrible Injuries .—The Rockford(Ill ) Journal says : At the McLean County Fair, at Cal houn, Ky , on Thursday last L. D Atchison, a .trapeae performer and aeronaut, made a balloon ascension to an unnsual height. When the balloon was descending, and when at the height of about 1,000 feet, it collapsed, and Atchison fell with frightful speed to the ground. When the balloon was being inflated the crowd called out that it was burning, but Grady, the mana ger of the concern, paid no heed to the cries, although many of those that were piescnt assert that it was plain that the fears of the crowd were weH founded, and the balloon was allowed to rise. The crowd watched the ascent with great anxiety, and when the descent commenced hoped that their fears were nnfonhded, until the balloon was per ceived to bo on fire and the collapse occurred, when to their horror the poor victim came down with frightful speed*: In his descent he struck a tree-top, and a large liaib was broken off by the col lision, and, fortunately for Atchison, broke the force of . his fall. His left thigh was broken, his arm badly brttfsed and he received other injuries which, it was feared, would proved fatal — Tbe place where he struek was close to tbe Fair Grounds and the crowd rus Jed to him, and it was with difficulty they could be kept back sufficiently to give the poor man air. The limb of the tree lay on top of him, and the burning balloon completely covered him. He was taken up, and, physicians being baud, restoratives were applied, aud was soon restored to consciousness. He struck the ground with tremendous foroe, making an indention in the ground. When restored to consciousness he said that as soon 6s he saw tbe bal loon was on fire he tried to direct it toward the timber, and in doing so eaused it to collapse, but he so far suc ceeded that the direction was change so as to strike the tree. He says he expected to be killed, and exclaimed to himself, "Good-bye. Happy Curley" (the name by which he was known), and then prepared to-meet his fate. He bore his suffering with great fortitnde, only breaking down when llis little dog was allowed to approach him, when he cried.
