Eaitrrn Press losdsseats the Maine Klertlen New York, Sept. 9.—Tbe World ■ays: The majority of Blame's can didate for Governor •honld have been at least 20,000 under the circumstances of tbe alliance of tbe Republicans with tbe Prohibitionists. The Hrrald says: Blame, appears to be 4000 votes more popular in Maine than tbe late President Garfield, aod 4000 less popular than ex-President Hay«*s. It shows tbat if tbe Democratic National Committee had chosen to con test this election they might have done ao with an excellent chance of success. The Timet says: As compared with the September vote of 187 d, the last one held under normal conditions, the Re publicans ought to have polled more than ■20,000 majority. It will lw seen that with all their straining, with the advan tage of Blame's appe tls to State pride and with the field substantially aban doned to tbem, the Republ cans have barely managed to held their own, Tho Philadelphia Tim* says: The election of a Republican Governor in Maine by a majority of 16,000 thaws out tbs Vermont Blame chill and gives bim a running start for the October race and the November sweepstakes. li'aioe ha 1 to achieve success in Maine regard less of consequences and he has done It. The Philadelphia Pre* says: The victory passes by tbe thousands of pre alietUns of Republicans and doubles the majority conceded by the Democrats. After six years of defeat and dubious .contentions, tbe candidates cf Blame, at a single blow bave carried Maine to tbe front rank of R< publican States. Maine •ettlea New Kngland; it settles the croakers over Blame's borne strength; it settles Democratic predictions; it aettles the last of tbe doubtful States t>y paring it down to tbe narrowest limit of eight years past.

Genesis. The begining of genesis of material is always a aubject of more than ordinary interest for consul era tiou when ita pro. grass brings it within the reach of onr dtaorimina-.iug faculties. We have cer tals aensea which are limited in their faculty of perception, so that facta aod conditions may exist for some time out ai.L of their range before they can be manifested to our conaciousness, hence an investigation of any of the pheomena of nature we are oontined lo tbe meaa nro of our ability to recognize and fol low the indicetiona with the circle of onr obaervation and comprehension. There appears to be a natural instinct of the human mind which demands cauaea from tbe coodittona whioh it beholds, and we also unconsciously seek to trace backward in oue line toward the begining or initial poiot, and for ward iv the other toward the conse quences and probabilities of the future aud poaaihle. It is therefore not strange that man should attempt to trace the hiatory of the foundation and structure of the earth's surfaoe from tbe fragmen tary indications whioh have been here and there revealed in various points of ita career. We have already stated our belief that the harmonious work which ia indicated everywhere in tha domain of nature, shewa that the creative forces which produce the results we now Le hold, are constantly in aoti ,s opera ion. and that tha formation of mineral and ita deposition in veins is going on con s antly. Jt is readily apparent in the vegeta ble kingdom that the production of one season is rapidly utilised even in the n«t, to supply the life and growth of a new form which haa oome to take the place of those which have fulfilled their work and passed away. From the fact that in all operations conceded with metallurgy where attempta are made to decompose and reorganise tho ores, thoro is readily apparent in the tint steps, aa in en ry advance of the operation, a tendency toward vola'ilisation and liquidation, whioh are but points on the journey toward a gaseous oonditiou. As tha lorm of matter ia their decom position tend toward their original ele ments, and whan forced by different pro oaaeas from ona alap to another, rapidly change to gases, It la evident that this condition was oue of the first iv which minerals, as well as most, if not all the different forms of matter, with whioh we are acquainted, once existed. It evi dently at least marks one step in their progrossof development, ami as tbere is evidently a tendency in nature to reor ganize these same elements into the form which tbey once occupied, and iv fuot, as evidenced in many observable conditions, sbe recuperates ber forces from this store house, which is contin ually being supplied hy tbe process of de struction or decomposition, which terms but poorly express tbe correct idert, it gives good reason for tbe conclusion that tbe crest volume of gases which are formed from the combustion of ooal nnd from the wide diversity of metallurgical snd industrial operations so generally prevalent on the face of the civilized globe, must furnish au important amount of tho matter whicb some where timls its place in the economy of nature, nnd serves a purpose In her activities. Bas ing our premises upon the acknowl edged activity of the forces everywhere present, and upon tbe economical utility which allows no particle of matter to re* main idle or uselessly Inert, it is i>aie to state that all of the results of what we may term destruction, are rapidly form ing new combinations aud entering into new structures In most cases more likely to bo in harmony with the origiual posi tion wich tbey once occupiod than other- The constructive history of the slate nnd sandstones, as well as every other character of rock, indicates to a ceitain ty that the immense burden of material which the waters of our thousands of rivers annually carry, trom mountain aide and valley out into tho ocean depths are there undergoing the sama process of solidification under tbo laws of crystal line forces, and assuming tbe character and form which will one day fit them to perform an active part iv the drainn of existence where tbey are to appear. Il will not be affirmed that this new rocky strata which is being constantly re formed in the ocean's depths, According to a well defined law, will be barren of mineral treasures or that it will bo less suited to the activity of the future than tho same class and character of rocks to-dsy exhibited. Everywhere in thn circle of existence around us, we behold death as a mother fecdiug life, and life folding itself In the garments cast away by forms which have lived and served their purpose be fore passing to a new state in the eudless cycles of progression, through which all matter is passing in one form or another. — Chicago Review. VOTERS IN THE CITY OF CHURCHES. Indication.** Pointing to a Large Majority or Tbem for Cleveland. Out of Brooklyn's voting population it is believed that not less than 120,000 ballots will be cast at the coming Presi dential election. Last year tbe vote for Mayor fell short of 100,000, but the in ters ■ t In that election was comparatively small. Both Democrats and Republi cans in Kings county assert that a much larger vote will be polled tbis year than ever bef.iro. People who ara in position to kuow, say that tbo "sileut vote" of Brooklyn is larger in proportion to its sis* than that of any other city in tbe United States. These silent voters are mainly those wbo are not identified with either of tho great parties. Many of tbem are retired mer chants who take little interest in politics unless in just such ao emergency as is now before them. They look lor rec ords aud upon tbem a candidate is sup ported or not. Tbis vote in Brooklyn will this year reach as high as 10,000. Governor Cleveland has given Brook lyn the excellent government which has placed it before the country as a model city, and the people know it and appreciate it. Ths German element in Brooklyn is 20,000 strong. Their vote will be divided tbis year in favor of Cleveland. The speech delivered by Carl Schurz at the Grand Opera Mouse recently has won many of them over. Tbe temperance agitation bas also made tbe German suspicious of the Republi cans. Dividing the 90,000 votes which is believed will remain equally, tbe candidate of the Democracy will have a majority of about 20,000. According to the observations of careful Democrats, Cleveland's majority in Kings coanty will exceed that figure. Secretary William A. Furry, of the Democratic General Committee, believes that 25,000 is a low estimate.—Asw York World. Santa Ana Exports.

Often and again we heard from many gentlemen: ''Why can we not enjoy so great a treat more often?'* And the award of the prises too, gave to contestants and all, universal' satisfaction. After the barbecue came the dance, then the many various and olt exciting games. Prises were won, and by general solicitation Dr. Gilling ham presented them with the grace and aplomb we should expect from that modest, oultnred gentleman. British sr. HOTEL ARRIVALS YESTERDAY. ST.

Some rich strikes are reported from th-« desert close to Carizi creek, silver assaying up in tbe thousand* snd nickel up to the hundreds, so don't be sur prised If the Curiza creek mining camp (that is lo be) leaves Culico in tbe shade. A Valuable Substitute for a Quarts Pulverizer. A new substitute has been invented for tbe ordinary quartz pulverizer, in the shape of a small cylinder with two heads revolving in opposite directions at the rate of 3300 per minute, thus caus ing tho rooks, as fed iuto the small space between tbe two heads, to revolve rapidly and quickly pulverise. It is so arranged tbat contact with the metal extracted is almost entirely avoided, and the parts wearing—two casing rings, half an inch thick, six inches iv diameter and three inches wide— are easily reversible, and cheaply re placed by new castings, Tbis kind of mill will crnsh eight toes of ore in ton hours, while the full size of twenty inches in diameter will rapidly break tip boulders of a considerable size, and reduce them to powder. When the ma chins is in motion, the rook, by centrifu gal force, is first distributed against ths inner surface of the cavity of the ma chine, in the form of two hollow cones, with their bases touching at tbs center of the mill, moviug in opposite direc tion*, grinding the rock oo the rock, while the metal portion of the mill is entirely protected by a rock cone formed within, and fixed to the inner surface. Tbis is a simple kind of mill which would be a good thing to try by some of our enterprising mine owners. Mushrooms Raised in Sheds all the Year. It is now stated that it is not neces sary to raise mushrooms iv a cellar, in total darkness, bnt that they can be equally as well raised In sheds. These are covered with manure, in an ordinary "lean to," with beds twenty yards ba length, and four yards ia width. Doors ore open at each end, and tbe draught fcfl said ta be good for the mushrooms. Tbe spawn is put iv about ibe size of a pigeon egg, abont niue inches apart, covered three i: dies deep, and products mushrooms in six weeks from the plant ing of the spawn Iv this case the beds bear faster and longer than a nark cellar, and a succession is prod no* d for a con siderable period much more so than the cellars heretofore in use. The cistern papers say that this new way of raising mushrooms, for family uao and sale in cities and towns bas almost superseded the dark cellar system, as it is much hotter. How it would make money for Southern Califomians who only have mushrooms during the wet season, and then in competition with the restaurants and hotels, have to pay a good price for them, or else bay champignons in tin cans. Many people have just the right place for the raising of this delicious edible fungi, and as they can be raised sll the year around it wonld be a cheap and paying investment to engage in their cultivation.

A very simple way of preventing iron mat from stovepipe,, or any kind of iron exposed to the weather, ie a tine powder of metallic xino mixed with oil and a drying substance. This is applied to the iron with a brush, and in many caeca a single coat ia enough for tbe purpose, but two coats may be relied upon to ae cure a protection againat the corrosive action of the atmosphere, aa welt as of sea water. This application gives tbe iron a handsome steel-gray appearance, But does nut interfere with painting at any time.
