Hamilton. There are several hun dred head of cattle, chiefly short horns, polled Angus and Hereford, on exhibition entered by some forty exhibitors. There is a fair representation of Clydesdalo nnd Norman horses and a large show of Hbeep, swine and poultry. The exhibition, in point of numbers, quality of stock and oth er attractions is regarded us far superior to I any former one. England, Scotland, Can ada, and ten of the Western States are rep. resented in the pens. There- were over 2,000 visitors present at the opening, audi as the show is really a meritoiious one I the finest and best of the kind ever heid in! tho West it canuot fail to be a great sue-1 ccs-s. Excellent music is furnished by a' military band. THE NOVEMBER BLIZZARD. Prolosslonal inotreologists, like .Mr. llirt and Sir John Herschell, have lor years noticed, as a regularly recurring phenomo non, the rushing down from tlie nrtic re gions In November of a "grout, billow or mountainous breaker of frosty air, which sweeps across the wholu Western and Euro pean continent-'." Sometimes compara tive light and other limes very severe, its character In this respect Is no Indication of the coming winter. "In 181 nnd 182," says tho lnotcrcologist of the N. Y '. llernU, "the first November snows fell in tho Mid-i die States ns early as the 4th of ihe month and in tho former yearelght inches ol biiow was reported on that day from Friendship, in this State. In tho three .successive years from 1870 to 1878 the lln-l November snows reached the Middle States between the 5th and 1 1th of tho month. Hut though this suggested the probability of an ensu ing cold winter, the reverse; was tho caso, and even tho mean temperature for that month in tho South Atlantic Slates was above tho normal." The November wave this year seems to havo reached Montana, Winnepeg, Dakota, etc., as early as Saturday of last week, where, as on Sunday here, it was preceded by thunder, lightning and rain, rapidly followed by furious cold winds, and in rnauy localities by a snow fall, varying from 2 to 10 inches In depth. The "wave" leached lake Michigan early on Sunday morning, and increasing rapidly in vio lence, by Sunday midnight had attained a velocity of (JO miles an hour at tho Chi cago crib, and DO miles, It is aid, at Mac kinac. While at Chicago it was equal to tho big blow in May last, at Milwaukee and northward, It was tho fiercest blow since October, 180. Up to Sunday the weather all over thu country had been unusually mild. Ah well at Mackinac as at Chicago the thermome ter on Saturday night was in Ihe fifties. The cold wavo came with such a pressure as to force its direct way entirely across the continent and far out into the Atlantic, and to spread laterally from Winnepeg to St I)ui8. On lakes Michigan, Huron, Kric.Ontario, and Uio St. Lawrence down to the sea there was au unusually large amount of shipping afloat under the treacherously genial sky, and the sudden and intense fierceness of the gale led to a frightful series of disasters Wrecks, accompanied with heavy loss of life, are reported all along the lake roasts. at Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Joseph, Macki nae, Port Huron, Cleveland, Buffalo, On wego and along the Atlantic coast from Halifax to Haltcras. It was Monday before the wave reached New York and Tuesday when it struck the coast of Maine, but its character over the whole wide expanse was the saute. On land in, many places houses were blown down or unroofed, and on water i-bipping foundered, stranded or wrecked. In many localities, such as Minncssota, Northern Wisconsin, Michigan, New York, portions of Pennsylvania and New England, there was snow fell of from 2 to 10 Inches; but over most of the region, as here at Ottawa, tbe sky was clear, the temperature falling rapidly and the "cold snap" steadily in creasing in intensity, varying Iroinjlli below -io in Manitoba to lOuboveut Chicago unci l.'i lit St. Louis. Fur three days the pipers Irom Maine to Colorado have been full of accounts of tLo great blow mid do tuil! ol i's utU'iiiliint tliH'Lit'.'M. Yesterday, however, there seemed to Left let up, the wind veering to tho south, mid the thcr- nioijitti r rising ho us to give promise of another milder spell.

ISut even with Indiana, the republicans would be short of enough to elect, us it will require 201 to elect, while without Indiana the de mocrats will have H votes to spare. The upshot of it is that there is no hope for tho jKepublicnns unless they can steal or u'iy up the great state of New Y'ork. With a majority ol -10,0(10 against them on any lair estimate based on tho last vote, can they hope to do this' GRANT ON FITZ JOHN F0HTER. There is nothing more honorable to the head und heart of (Ion. (Irant than the per- listenee w ith w hich he Insists that the un just sentence against Gen. Fitz John Por ter, to which he himself gave effect, shall be reversed. In view of the fact that the Congress to meet in December is demo cratic and will bo more liKcly than any hitherto to give Wen. Porter a fair bearing, Gen. Grant bus written another letter tu Gen. I'., evidently intended to aid him in bis appeal to the next congress. The let ter, which is quite lengthy, has just ap peared in tho New York ciiy dailies. In it Gen. Grant tells Gen. Potter that al though ho bad approved the sentence ol the court martial that condemned him, he took its finding rather on trust than from any examination of his own. He had never, however, believed that Gen. Porter was a traitor. The worst he had believed of him was that, with many other army officers at the si conn battle ol Dull Kun, Gen. Porter had such a contempt fur Gen. Pope that be had intentionally contrib uted to bring upon him that disaster. Gen. Grant, however, has the manliness to say: ' I was first shaken in my views, how ever, w hen such a man as Gen. Terry who uuites the lawyer with the soldier and man of high character and ability, und who had believed as 1 bad, ami possibly worse after many weeks of Investigation, should entirely vindicate you, und be sustained, too, by men of tho known ability of his colleagues on tho board. "Cntil, in 1881, 1 ri -examined for my self, my belief was that on tho 2lth of Au gust, 18112, a great battle was fought be tween Gen. Pope, commanding the I'nion forces, and Gen. Jackson, commanding the Confederate forces ; that you, with a corps of twelve or more thousand men, stood in a position across the right Hank of Jack son, and when you could easily got into bis rear; that you received an order to do so about 5 or 3lj o'clock, which you te fused to obey because of clouds of dust in your front, which you contended indicated an enemy in superior force to you, that you allowed Pope to get beateu while you stood idly looking on without raising an arm to help him. With this understand ing, acd without a doubt as to the correct ness of it, 1 condemned you. "Now, on a full investigation of the facts, I find that the battle was fought on the 30th ot August; that your corps, comman ded directly by you in person, lost a great er percentage than any other corps en gaged ; that the i4 order of tho day before did not reach you until nightfall ; that your Immediate superior Had cautiontd you early in the day that you we.ro too tar out to tho front then ; that I loner il I'opo had cautioned you against brinirio;,' ui an engagement, except under suoli circum stances as ho described, and that in any event you must bo prepared to tall back behind Hull Run that night, where ii would be necessary for you to bo to receive supplies; that from 11 o'clock of the 2!)th you were confronted by a force of twice your own number, of whoso presence you had positive proof, while (!on. I'upo did not know of it. "Thisla.it fact is bliown by the working of the hall past I order. 1 1 directed you to attack the enemy's right and got into lilt rear, (ion. Pope's circular of the morning of the 2iHh said that lion. I.eo was advan cing by way of Tuorouglif ire (iap. At the rate at which he was uioviiiLj he could be up the night of the ;!0th or morning of the olst. In his tcitiiuony before the court martial winch tried you ho said under oatli, tn it In- in I not Know ol tin; arrival ol Leo's command until t o'clock of the 2!);h, an hour and a half after In; had dic tated tho oi'lt r for your attack. "His circular and testimony prove ronclu sivoly that Jackson anil Jackto'i alone was the enemy lie intended you to attack. Your knowledge of this tact, us well as of the fact that you htm -mother force, quite double Ilia'. -l yo-.ns, in addition in your front, would havo been Mifilciont justifica tion lor your not attacking, oven if the or der had been received in time. Of course this would not apply if a battle had been! raging between Jackson and Pope. A; the hour you received the order all was quiet. "The very short, hastily written and in complete summary shows why and w hen my mind underwent n change. I have no doubt now but tho change would hive taken place in li7 if I had then made anj investigation. I regret now that 1 oil not' understand your case then us I do now.! Your whole life since your trial, rn well! as your services before, disprove tko great j burden of the charges then su!uiicd by it court martial. As lonir us I haw: a voice, it. shall lie raisoil in your suppo.M, without any reference to tho effect upon mo or others. Your restoration t the uriny simply I would regard as a very inauY- piate and unjust reparation While men one at least have been restored to the army because of their gallantry am' wounds alter conviction and s'.-nti'iico, not only to be dismissed, but to bo confined in a pen itentiary, and when there is no doubt of uuili. and given all their pay for thuycm they were out of tho .service, 1 can soo :io reason for your having less." NEW STANDARD 0V TIME. Heretofore tho practice lias been to re gard the meridian as the standard of time, making duo allowance for variations as calculated by tho astronomers. The result has been that clocks were last at the rate ot about 5 minutes for every 100 miles going westward and slow ut the same mtc going eastward. This, especially in the running ol railroad trains, was the si urce of constant annoyance and often serious accidents. To overcome this diflioulty nil tlie rail roads centering In Chicago, with one or two exceptions, have agreed upon the adoption of a new standard of time. The plan is to divide the whole country tand ultimately the world) into 24 sections of one hour each, reckoning eastward from Greenwich, and starting from the true as tronomical meridian, turn the clock on one hour at tho crossing of each of these new section or time meridian lines, the time re mauling the same over the whole interme diate space. Thus, suppose one of the true meridian lines strikes Pittsburg, the next westward would be in the vicinity of Des Moines, ami at all points between these lines every clock would strike the tame hour at tho same instant; beyond Dos Moines tlie time would ut tlie same in stant bo an hour later and castot Pitts burg au. hour later. Practically, at Ottawa, on t lie adoption ot the new sianutiru ot the railroads on Sunday evening, waen it Is to go into effect, all necessary to b)dono to conform to it, will bo to turn our clocks (such as arc correct) hack about 0 minutes. The advantages of the change are said to be many and great. The cities of Chi cago and St. Louis will have the sime time for arrivals and departures of trains, as well as other business, instead of being, as now, ten minutes apart. The cities ol New York, Philadelphia, Hoaton aud Washington will in like manner have but one time, and tho watch set to the- legal time in cither of thesu cities will show the established time in each ed' the others as well us for every other place in the Uuited States east ol the Alleghcnies, and that Kustern lime will differ from our own (to bo called "Central time") by just one hour, it beinir precisely 4 o'clock in Chicago and St. Louis, Madison, St. Paul, Milwaukee, Springfield, Dloonungton, etc., when it is just 5 o'clock in tho Kastern cities. Inas much as the countless errors and delays in making train connections arc nearly all of them questions of minutes, they will be avoided in large part by the adoption ot the new standard. The railroads throughout tho country onco having adopted the new standard, ho- tels shipper aud many other business clatses will be obliged to follow perforce, and this no doubt will rapidly lead to Its adoption universally in all business as well as scientific and social relations. How natural it Is to kick the under dog I Now that Mahone has been laid out in Virginia the staunch republican TitUburg Dtipalch has no hesitancj in giving him the following kick, and the no less "truly loyal" Chicago Journal approv ingly copies it: Of all the machines that have been t rok- on, none got what w as needed for ttio pub lie, welfare more thoroughly than Unit which wa-i oporaVj by Senator Mahono in YlrginU.

A London dispatch of Tuo.-da says: "(Jrcut frosts have set in everywhere throughout Eng land, and ii heavy snow storm has fallen in Dorset and surrounding counties. A dense fog, which still hangs oyer the ( 'lyde a J the Mersey, has stopped traffic for more than twelve hours. Several collisions have occurred, but Microtias been no loss of life."

I had a dream, Wa it a dreamV Well, I should scream ! It was a dream Of sweet lec cream. And of a maid Who with it played. Will that dream'fade!' Not much I paid. A Missouri man writing to Uio J'rm'ru Frinff suggests n method of road making that is worth consideration. ' The key note," ho says, "of the whole trouble is free the ground of water, anil you will have no mud or slush, and consequently a firm, dry road IcJ to travel at ail seasons ol the year." The host way he conceives to do this is "drainage, pure and simple." There jure few sections m the state where there is not fall enough to drain it, and the same utiv be said of thu roads. Thu usual meth od of road making has made tho bed con vex with ditches along the sides. Theso ditches having no proper outlets become reservoirs of water, saturating tho road bed, and the more it is traveled the softer it be comes. The remedy is : find an outlet, und drain off tho water; then begin em the road bed, sinking from i in. to 8 in. tile in the depressions on either side, these drtins to have openlugs for cross drains of snnll tlica every six feet, which shall cros thoroud bed from lateral drain to lat eral drain, the cross drains to be laid with fall to carry the water freely Into tlie later al d-nins. This system, it is claimed, will give a road which, il a little sloppy on top ufter a rain, will be solid at all tensons. The cost any farmer can figure out who has cone any tiling. Old McAdam. when he mado roads, would not have uny stone placed on the track which would uot pusB through tiring one inch m diameter. He said larger stone wore cruel to horses and would not pack well. Ah, there! There's nothing like it. That most eminent of all thedistingu s i ed sons of Doston, Prot. John L.
