Presidential Elections Since 1820.
Since 1820, when Monroe was chosen for
b secoud term, with but one opposition elec
toral vote, the Presidential elections have
.been less decisive than is generally supposed.
That is to say, the popular majority lor the
successful candidate has never been exces
sive : and often he has actually wanted a
VuajOrity, and had only a plurality. This
was the case, for instance, in 1844, when
the votes cast for Clay, and those thrown
HYray on Birnev, exceeded in the aggregate
those polled for Polk, makiug the latter act
ually a minority President.
To go back to 1824. In that year four
candidates were in the field, Jackson, Adams,
Crawford and Clay. The first received 99
electoral votes, the second 84, the third 41,
and the fourth 37. The election, under
these circumstances, devolving on the Bouse,
Adams received the vote of 13States, Jack
son of 7, and Crawford of 4. In 1828,
Jackson was chosen by the popular voice,
obtaining 178 electoral votes out of the 201,
which then constituted the Electoral College.
In 1832, Jackson was again chosen by the
popular voice, and this time by even a great
er majority, receiving 170 electoral votes
more than his opponent, Henry Clay.
This brings us up to 1836, or twenty
yearsago. In that year Van Bureii, though
elected President, beat Harrison in the pop
ular vote only about 14,000, though he had
170 electoral votes out or 294. Four years
afterwards Harrison seemed, at first sight,
to have had three times as many as Van
Bureu, for he obtained 234 electoral votes,
while his antagonist had but 60 ; yet he
only beat the latter, in the popular vote,
about one hundred and sixty thousand, out
of a poll of nearly two millions and four
hundred thousand. Another curious feature
of the election of 1840 was that the popular
vote exceeded by nearly two-thirds that east
in 1836. Van Buren, for instance, distan
ced as he was, received 364,000 votes in
1840 more than he did four years before.
In 1844, as we have said already, Polk was
actually a minority President ; and yet he
beat Clav by a larger popular majority than
Harr; son had beaten Van Huron ; the vote
being, for Polk 1,536,196, for Clay 1,297,-
212. TheE Sectoral College stood, however,
170 for Polk, to 105 for Clay. In 1H4-:
Taylor received 163 electoral votes, and
Cass 127. The great State of New York
in this election decided the contest by going
for Taylor.
When we compare these elections with
those prior to 1820, we see how much more
closely contested they have been. In 1804,
for instance, Jefferson had 162 electoral
votes, and Piuckuey, his opponent, 14 only.
In 1808, Madison Imd 122, and Pinckney
47. Ju 1812, Madison hud 158, and Clin
ton 89. In 1816, Monroe had 183, and
King 84. In 1820, as we have already
mentioned, Monroe had 231, only a single
cleetorul vote being cast in opposition.
These statistics show how nearly equally
divided the people in these United States
are on cardinal questions and federal policy
Madame Restell and her Hcsband. —The ■
JVat'ional Police Gazette gives tlie annexed
account of these unprincipled notorieties :
Madame Rested is the owner of the prem
ises in Chambers street, in which she lives.
It is a three story and attic budding, about
forty feet front and one hundred feet deep,
valued at $50,000. Mo lady rides in a bet
ter carriage, or is drawn by a better span of
horses, than Madame Rested and her hus
band Lohman. The wealth of these abor
tionists will give a much more correct idea
of the business they drive than any esti
mate we might make. Lohman has an of
fice in Liberty street. He has a downcast,
gloomy appearance when walking the streets.
He is never seen in company with, or talk
ing to any one. Nobody wishes to cultivate
his acquaintance, however glad some may !
be of ids services. When he and Madame
Rested go out riding they are always alone
—they have (io company or friends. When
they drive through Broadway, they are
shunned by the crowd like a pair of lepers.
They are as isolated in a city of three quar
ters of a midion of inhabitants as they would
be on the most desolate spot of God’s earth.
Who says this does not speak well for New
York '( Madame Restelle is a German.—
She was educated as u midwife in Vienna,
und came to this country about twenty years
ago.
The Female Form.— Here is a paragraph
from Headley’s Letters from Italy which
we commend to the attention of our lady
readers :
In form the Italians excel us. Larger,
fuller—they naturally acquire a finer gait
nud beariug. It is astonishing that our la
dies should persist in that ridiculous notion,
that a small waist is, and per necessita , must
be beautiful. Why, many an Italian woman
would cry lor vexation, if she possessed such
a waist as some of our ladies acquire, only
by the longest, pajnfullest process. 1 have
sought the reason of this difference, and can
see uo other than that the Italians have
their glorious statuary continually before
them as models ; and hence endeavor to as
similate themselves to them ; whereas our
fashionables have no models except those
Frcuch stuffed figures iu the windows of the
miliner’s shops. Why, if an artist should
presume to make a statue with the shape
that seems to be regarded with us as the
perfection of harmonious proportion, he
would be laughed out of the city. It is a
Standing objection against the taste of our
women the world over, that they would
practically assert that a French milliner un
derstands how they should be made better
than nature herself.
' WAr.LETT is Coming. —Wallett, the celebra
ted clown, is on Ins way to California again,
with quite a number of talented artistes,
it appears from the following, which we
dip from the Frank ford lleruld, (I’euu.j
that when at home, he is something of a
horticuituralist :
Mr. Wallett, who is about to leave us for
California, is one of the most successful gar
deners among us. Everything seems to
llourish under his hands. Few gardeners
pan boast of liner vegetables, none of better
or larger fruit than Mr. Wallett’s. Jfis
grape vines have been, every season, over
burdened with fruit, owing no doubt to his
peculiar method of culture, and his peur
frees hang with some of the largest golden
f/ uft iu this part of the country.
The Vineyards of Los Angeles.
The Los Angeles correspondent of the
Evening Bulletin, furnishes to that paper
the following interesting facts in relation to
the vineyards and wine manufacture of Los
Angeles :
The California variety of grape-vine was
originally introduced by Roman Catholic
missionaries—over sixty years since, and
since then this same stock has been culti
vated. In some places old vines are seen,
which are said to have been planted during
the last century. Whether true or not, one
planting answers for one generation—the
only kind of fruit that retains its productive
vitality so long. .
At the present time, for planting, cut
tings and roots are both used—the former
bearing in three years, the latter the first
year from the planting. Cuttings of four
; ieet long—in the ground, two feet horizon
tal and two feet perpendicular—are much
; preferrable to the short twelve inch twigs
so extensively planted at the north, and
with so little success. Each vine should be,
at least, seven feet apart, to allow nutri
ment to the roots, and room to gather the
fruit when ripe, and also ripen the fruit be
fore the windy season. In January and
February is priming season, and the lengthy
cuttings, from six to ten feet, arc removed,
leaving only eight of the best cuttings. The
less wood remaining on the vine, the more
thrifty the growth, and the larger the fruit.
The culture, till fruit time, is the same as
with corn. Irrigation increases the size of
the grape nearly as largo again, provided
the vines are kept short. During the fir.-t
three years, the vines should be supported
by stakes, to produce a regular and beauti
ful vineyard. In this country, vines arc
only four feet in height, and are not trailed
as in the East, l'ropor attention to culti
vating the vine hastens the maturity of the
fruit—oftentimes two weeks earlier than in
adjoining soils on the same place. Like
other fruits, the maturity of the fruit de
pends on the soil, whether sandy or other
wise. The more sand the earlier the ripen
ing.
Owing to the slow sale of native wines, j
owners of vineyards have shipped to San !
Francisco nearly all the grapes for the past
four years, thereby preventing the Los An-
geles wines from being brought into notori
ety, like Eastern wines. The largest bunch
es of grapes are packed for San Francisco
and tiie mines, while the smallest bunches
are left for making wine and brandy. The
quantity of each is the same.
To make superior wine, choice grapes,
after being well ripened, are carefully
cleansed of all damaged grapes, and are
dried two days in the sun, before being put
in the wine press. Formerly, it was the
universal custom to trend out grapes with
the feet, without doubt the best mode, but
not very pleasant to think of when about to
drink. Lately, however, wine-presses have
been substituted, answering the same pur
pose. The pomace—including the skin and
pulp—are fermented in casks for eight or
nine days. During the fermentation, all
impurities are taken to the top mid east out.
lied wine is owing to the coloring matter
of the skin, while white, or clear wine, con
tains the juice of the grape fermented to it
self. Wines are light or heavy, according
to the alcohol they contain, and hence the
neecsity of cheap wines selling at low prices
to prevent souring, and also the neecsity of
costly wines possessing more of the intoxi
cating ingredient. Besides the red and
white wines made in this region, the natives
manufacture a drink called angelica, (an
gel’s drink) consisting two-thirds of the juice
of the grape and one third aguardiente (na
tive brandy) mixed. It is the sweetest of
wines, like cordial, but much more intoxica
ting. A species of champagne has been at
tempted, and reported by judges of good
wines to be equal to the European brands.
The cost of a vineyard and its cultivation
is as follows : An old bearing vineyard of
about 3000 vines and over can be bought
for a dollar per vine. Every year vine
will average from eight to ten pounds of
grapes. The cultivation of these during the
whole year, costs about one cent per pound,
and under the best management, much less.
From twelve to lif'ten pounds of grapes pro
duce one gallon of wine. The labor of gath
ering the grapes is but n fraction fora large
amount. The cost of casks and liarcls is
the heaviest expense, including the necessa
ry cooperage, ten cents per gallon : making
to the producer of wine a total cost of about
fifty cents per gallon. To the purchaser of
•grapes, the cost is generally double. The
w hole cost of new wines is not a great sum,
but the keeping of wine, for age to improve
it necessarily adds to the cost, according to
the value of money and time kept on hand.
Vineyards, like other property pay accord
ing to their management. One vineyard of
5000 vines, in this town, paid, last yea' - ,
nearly four hundred dollars per acre of one
thousand vines, while others have not paid
cost of cultivation.
The amount of laud devoted to the cul
ture of the grape in this place, is about eight
hundred acres, uiul about KiO additional
acres in this county ; containing about 650,-
000 vines in the township and county. All
the refuse grapes, with the pomace, are dis
tilled, and, after the second distillation, t
clear liquid, like alcohol in appearance and
in strength, is obtained.
A Oot.nKx A\ kmiini,. One of those rare
events, the celebration of the fiftieth anni
versary of a wedding day, both parties sur
viving, occurred in Salem, Massachusetts,
on Saturday last. The venerable Deacon
Nathaniel i’rothingliam, and his wife com
memorated their golden wedding then, hav
ing been married October 4, 1806. Dea
con F. was a widower and his wife a widow
when 'hey were united, and both had chil
dren. They have live sons and four daugh
ters surviving, four of them living in New
ork, and all (excepting an invalid daugh
ter) were present with their children on
this joyous occasion, Jluv. Dr. Emerson,
whose golden wedding occurs on the 29th
lust., 1 humus Needham, Ksq., and others
were also iiroted. Deacon Frothingham is
now b7 years of age, and his wife 79, arid
his health is so vigorous that lie is almost
every (Jay seen in our streets. He lived ig
Charlestown at the time of the battle of
Hunker Jlill, and with an elder sister and
her young family, was compelled to tlee

Cotton Trade of the World.
During the late session of Congress a doc
ument was communicated from the State
Department to the House of Representa
tives, in reply to a call from that body, giv
ing a comparative view of the cotton trade
of the world in general, and of the United
States in particular. In publishing the
document in full the National Intelligencer
accompanied it with the following abstract
and remarks :
‘ We have no recollection of any similar
document so comprehensive and valmftde
emanating from any Department of the
Government since the ‘ Tubular Statements
and Notes’ of Secretary Woodbury, of the
Treasury Department, twenty years ago ;
and it will prove as interesting to the gen
eral reader us it is important for all who are
engaged either ns producers, manufacturers
or traders in the great American staple.
From this report we learn that the United
States has exported an average of more
than a thousand million pounds of cotton in
each of the live years last past, of which
quantity more than seven hundred million
pounds went to England and nearly two
hundred million pounds to France, from
which this latter Government derived an an
nual average revenue of nearly three mill
ions of dollars.
The sixth statement exhibits the quanti
ties of cotton exported by Great Britain to
al! countries, respectively, and the countries
whence she imported the cotton thus export
ed for u period of live years ending with
1855. From this we learn that England
consumes only about live-sixths of all the
cotton she imports, the residue being con
veyed by her ships to the Continent, and
principally to the ports of Russia and Cen
tral Europe—a carrying trade which, it
appears to us, might as well be pursued by
our own merchant marine ; and, also, that
her large re-exportation of her India cotton,
and the comparatively small re-exportation
of that derived from the United States, show
very conclusively the relative value of the
two articles and her appreciation of them.
About one-tenth of the cotton imported
from the United States is re-exported from
England, while nearly one-half of that im
ported from British India is never used in
her factories, but is sent away. These facts
are significant of their relative value. Amcr-!
ienn cotton is estimated as 100 per cent su
perior to that of India.
Succeeding this table we have three state
ments showing the quantities of cotton im
ported into Great Britain, France and Spain,
respectively, and the countries whence im
ported, fora period of five years—statements
which must have required much investiga
tion and extensive inquiry to gather their
elements. From these statements we glean
the facts that the annual importation of cot
ton from all Countries into England the last
five years lias exceeded eight hundred mill
ion pounds, of which quantity more than
three-fourths was derived from the United
States and about one-sixth from British
possession, and that France and Spain, each
of them, look to us almost exclusively for
the raw material to supply their spindles.
The seventh tubular comparative state
ment exhibits the quantities and values of
cotton manufactures and yarns exported
from Great Britain and from the United
States, respectively, to all countries for the
last five years—showing the immense results
of the cotton manufacturing industry ol
Great Britain, the importance which that
branch of industry is assuming in our own
country, and the heavy bonds in which the
two greatest nations in the commercial
world are ‘ recognized to keep the peace
toward all persons, but especially toward
each other’ —the one as the great producer,
the other the great, consumer of the staple
which gives food to millions.
The document concludes with ‘ general
information respecting t he cotton-trade of
the United States’ and of all nations, giving
a vast amount of rare and valuable tacts in
a condensed and an attractive form, those
relating to each country being arranged un
der its respective caption—the imports, ex
ports and manufacture of the article being
noticed, the country whence tho raw mate
rial is derived, and tlio.e to which their
manufactures arc sent, with the quantities
and value of each. The principal countries
of production beside the United States—
namely, British Judin, Egypt, Brazil and
Algeria—are also treated of.
This portion of the the document con
cludes with h detailed statement or essay on
the subject of ‘ the capacity of the cotton
bale,’ (a term, By the way, which would
seem quite as variable ami unfixed us a
measure of quantity us the milrca uf Brazil
is as a standard of value,) and which we
are sure will afford valuable information on
tlie subject even to tlio.se who have been in
‘ the cotton line’ all tneir lives.’
