The result of thb October elections, footed up and carefully analysed, indi- cate a determination upon the part of the people to free themselves from the hold their presems rulers htjva upon them. The overwhelming majorities given against the republican jiominees in the States-of Oljio and Indiana must, jbe registered as.tbje outspoke^ verdict |0f a dissatisfied people against] the presf ent administration. The reasons for jthis dissatisfaction are manifold, and have been uponjthe increase for the past two years. To attribute ;them to local issues is worse thati fojly, and will be beJiWcd by none ^ho think and act for • themselves. 5Phere_ is nousedisguisingtFie fact thntth&re- publfean party hjkj*ec6me |powerful and corrupt.

In some of the Western States the movements of the grangers'and other semi-political oiganijsations haye had the'effect to upset the calculations of shrewd politicians, and office-seekers are puzzled to know ivhieh way to jump. In by-gone days, *wheh our present District Attorney : took bis famous double somersault ', from the Democratic party through the Cjreeley balloon, and was wafted by a Republi- can nomination to safe iiuchora|je in a fat office, all that wasitieeded to perform the, feat was a rubber (jsoiiseienee slight- ly greased. In, the present status of those States, political^ acrobats are not as successful in performing ^hese feats, and often encounter a| good |eal;of un- pleasant frankness ajhiongjthej class .•fchey seek t o impo,se upon. During the ']j4te campaign in Indiana, a liotejd poli- tifiinn. whn ri'>fl 5»» v«3«»:tMo«lit> buun an office from every lijarty thathjad ev- er existed, plentifully sprinkled his hair with hay-seed, and; began to woo the grangers, Ina-bi|ief biographical filcetch which hclliad (worked injto one oif his speeches, he introduced this ag- ricultural remark : \ Yes, Iinay truly say I was born betv r een two rows of corn.\ In the slight pause which fol- lowed, a heavy-handed farmer] who knew of but one kind of vegetable that came into the\ world tl^us ssndwfcked, blurted out? \ A purppkin, by ithun- dfer!\ The speech wap never finished, and the office-seeker.will have Ho take another leap before' be succeeds.

The index of the barometer orept slowly around the dial, marking off the thousands till it reached the four- teenth,: then flying back again and starting from zero, from whence it progressed once more around the dial, until it halted on the verge of the two thousandth, telling us that we were only aboufii hundred feet less than sixteen thousand; feet above the surface of the earth. \ *'..,: At this height the river was an-ob- scurity to us; a vjinory haze shut i t out ^from our view, jand we could detect nothing Pf it but; the silver lines that marked the'great bays and rivers, The air was Very cojd, and the sun was very warm.

' ' • In August, Hhe Bergen county'au- thorities decided tpjlniild a new draw- bridge across the Haekensack river at Couit street, Hackensaek,Jand accord- ingly received estimates from epntract- ors. P. Dobb^ <& .Co., of Jersey City, received the contract, haying bid #2.50 lower than J.,W. Stagg,. a contractor and architect pf Englewood, who had felt sure of getting the job. However, the Commissioners employed him to draw the plans, paying him $200. About the first of September DobbV & Co. commenced the bridge, and the work progressed rapidly uutif a. few days ago,-when it turinil oiit that the timbers were five feet tpo short, or the river five feet Itoo Wide. „ • Superintendent Van Houten was as^ touished. He. could ndf account for the wonderful shrinkage of the timber, •or tlie mysterious widening' of the- i'ivf er. He rememjbered that when the iron. bridge at St. Louis was building,- the' atmosphere elxpahded the iron key- stone sonie five inches, and it Was nec- essary to pack, i t in ice to restore' it to its proper, size J but he had not. heard of' the atmosphere expanding' a riyerfi-ve feet, nor shrinking heavy timbers to that extent, and he was af a loss to de- cide what process to employ to make both ends meet. ' * Then it occurred to him to measure the river. It was 31'6 Hfeefc wide. The . plans were for, a. bridge 311 feet long. Ho told Mr. Stagg Of his discovery. Mr. Stagg said it couldn't be possible. Then he said that the plans were not- drawn to work by;'- and then that the muslin on Wh^eh the plans had been drwan, at a scale of four feet to the inch, had shrunk from handling and exposure to the atmosphere.. To this Mr. Van Houteri replied that the county could hardly be expected to pay $200 for plans > ttiat could not be used to wOrk.hyi; and furthermore; the timbers had been measured by tiie plans when they were first drawn and before they Wore handled at all.- The commissioners recognized the wisdom of the answer, and they will pay the extra $500 necessary, to lengthen the bridge,' ; '. . 1. .- FROM BiRdjOUR COTJJi^Ty. , forced open the closet in -f hieh they Wereft^prisohed,aiid-gave '\ but nbsracCof the robbers eoverei3|.
