So far as reports have been received the contest of yesterday may be set down as a drawn battle. The Dem ocrats probably gained some congress men, which of course dinpels the last hope the Republicans had of controll ing tbe next House of Representatives This is certainly of great importance Oce State, at least, from having a majority of Republicans in the House will have a majority of Democrats, and that will be of still greater importance. if the election of a President should be thrown into the House of liepre sentatives, where tho vote is by States and not by individual members. On the other hand the Republicans have shown on unexpected vitality in Iowa Ohio and Indiana- It is evident that in all three of these Slates they have since the campaign opened, steadily worked to restore the ancient party harmoDV, and havo succeeded beyond expectations. What the effect will be on the November elections cannot yet be told. It can bo estimated pretty accurately after further details of yes terday's vote are received. Tho two parties it seem after yes terday's failure of the "Third Party" hardlv worth while to mention it will now devote themselves to the Novem ber States. Probably New York Pennsylvania and Massachusetts will be thoroughly canvassed, and indepen dent of any effect tbe September and October elections, there has all along been a reasonable chance of Democratic gaioes in the first two mention ed. RX. Senator Butler, who. is traveling with tbe presidential party, unconsci ously perpetrated a good juke during Lis visit t-i Minnesota. On one occa sion a person, on introduction, in quired : "Are you the man who killed no many people in South Carolina?" Gen. Butler, without betraying an oovance. pleasantly replied: "I pre aurue von have killed more men than have." He was unaware that he bad got ahaad of Lis questioner, until a hearty laugh fiom the bystanders suzgeeted an ioqniry as to tbe cause, when he was informed that tbe man was a doctor. Tbe largest pumpkin in the world will be oa exhibition at forty-seveo State fairs this month.

Perhaps there is no department of enterprise whose details are less, un derstood, by intelligent people, than the "art preservative," the achieve ments of the types. Every day, their life long, people are aocustomed to read tbe newspa per and find fault with its, state ucnts; its arrangements; its looks; to pluuifl themselves upon the dis covery of some roguish aorobatio type that gets into a frolio and stands upon its head; or of some waote let ter or two iu it; but of the process by which the newspaper is made, or the myriads of mills and the thou sand ol pieces necessary to its compo sition, they know little and generally think less. They imagine they discourse of a wonder indeed, when they speak of the fair white oarpet, woven for thought to walk on the rags that flut tered on the back of the beggar yes terday. But there is something more won derful still. When we look at the hundred and fifty-two little, boxes, somewhat shaded with tho touch of inky fingers, that compose the prin ter's "case," noiseless, except the oliok of the types ; as one by one they take their places in tho growing line we think wo have found the mar vel of art. We think how many fancies in fragments there are in boxes; how many atoms of poetry and eloquence the printer can make here and there, if he had only a little chart to work by; how many facts in a small "hand ful;" how much truth in chaos. How he picks up the scattered ele ments, UQtil he holds in his hand a stanza of "Gray's Elegy," or a mon ody upon Grimes, "All Buttoned Up Reforo." Now he sets "Puppy Miss ing," and now "Paradise Lost," he arrays a bridge in "small caps,'1' and a sonnet in nonpareil; he announces the languishing "live in one sentence transposes tbe work, and deplores the days that ate few and "evil in the next. A poor jest ticks its way slowly into the printer's hand, like tho cloak just running down, and its strain of eloquence marches into line letter by latter. Wo fancy wo can tell the difference by hearing by the ear, but perhaps not. The types that told a wedding yes terday announce a burial to-marrow perhaps the same letters. They are the elements to make a world of. Those types are a world with something in it as beautiful as spring, as rich as summer and as im perishable as autumn flowers frost cannot wilt fruit that shall ripen for all time. :nt tli la out nntl Saye It. A enrresDondcnt writes as follows about the flower of a well known plant I have discovered a remedy for con sumption.

Changes of l.tle' Change is the oommoo feature of society of all life. The world is like a magio lantern, or, the shiltiDgrscenesofia panorama.. Ten years convert the population of schools into men and women,, tha young into fathers and matrons,, make and mar fortunes, and bury. tha. last generation but one, Twenty years oonvert infants into lovers, father and mothers, deoide men's fortunes and distinctions, oon vert aotive men andi women intoorawl iog drivelers, and bury all preoeediug generations. Thirty years raise an aotive gener ation from nonentity, change fasoinat ing beauties into bearable old wo men, convert lovens intAgrapdXtthera,.. and bury the aotive generation oc re duce them to deorepitude and imbeoili- ty. Forty years, alas I change the faoe of allsooiety. Infants are growing old, the bloom of youth and beauty has. passed away, two aotive generations, have been swept from the stage of life,, names once cherished are forgotten,, uDBUspeotedicandidates for fame have, started up from the exhaustloss womb, of nature. And in fifty yearsmature ripe fifty , years a half a century what tremen dous changes occur. How Time writes her sublime wrinkles ever whore, in rock, river, forest, and cities, hamlets,, villages in the nature of man and the destinies and aspects of all civilized sooiety. Let us pass on to eighty years and; what do we cbsim and; see to comfort. us in the world? Our parents are gone ; our children have passed away from us into all parts of the world to. fight the grim and desperate hattlo of life. Our old friends where are they?" We behold a world of which we know1 nothing and to which wo are unknown.. We weep for generations lone gone by for lovers, for parents, tor ohildren. for friends in the grave. We see everything turned up side down by the fickle hand of Fortune and the ab solute despotism of Time. In a word we behold the vanity of life, audi are quite ready to lay down the poor bur den and be gone. A Pnaaled Ilay. The young son of a widow living on Park street entered the house the other day with excited steps, and called to. bis mother: "You'd better get this tvouso all slicked up, for there's a strange man going to call as soon as he gets through talking with the grocer on the oornert" "Man with tbe gas bill I suppose ," was her indifferent reply. "Not by a jug full I" oontinued the boy, "He's all dressed in broadcloth, has a big gold watch, looks as if he. owned a bank and he was asking me about yon." "Is that possible? I wonder who it can be? What did ha ask ?" "He asked if you were as handsome as ever, and if yoa had grown old very fast, and if you had married aga'n I" "He did I Gracious I but who can it ber "I don't know only he is good-look log and rich, and and I" "And wnat did you tell him?" "I told him yon wouldn't marry the best man in the world, aqd that it wouldn't do him any good to come spooking ." "I'll give you an awful lioking if you don't tplit the rest ot that wood ("in terrupted the mother with sudden en ergy, and he was run into tbe back yard and given a cuff on the ear aa he left the door- He leaned on the axe helve and surveyed the btck windows in wonderment, and by and by he mus ed: "She is alius saying she's going live for her dear children alone, bat if this looks like it then I doa.t know the family!
