The Late Elections.
Tbo result or tlio Into elections in the
State, Is looked upon by many ns indlca-
. five of ft poltticnl revolution In opposition
to th o Admlnstrntiou. Hut this Is a nine
' trtssninplinn not supported by any reliable
. Itcts. Tho vast majority of tho grand
'army of the Union nro men believing, .that
.: Utic war, on the part of tlio Government,
U neccary and juj Othorwlso they
would not htivu promptly enlisted jo do-
fend IIh ling mid to maintain Its rlghtfuj an.
thoiily. " It is ridiculous," truthfully nays
tho Sacramento Virion, " to claim that tlio
men who believe that the Government I en
gaged in nn Aolitlon war' have volunteer
t vd to fight Its battles." They stnld at home,
mid have been laboring anil Intriguing to
bring about a revolution in tho rear of tlio
Union nrmles. Jf volunteers chould bo
fulled for iu this Stato, how many who
voted, what was styled tho Democratic
Ntpket ftl tho lunt election, do you suppose
would enroll their names? Very few, if
any.' All know that tho volunteers enlisted
in this Stie. for IN defense against, the at
tacks of Ihwtilo Indians, mid for tho protec
tion of lrt overland emigration, wcro
Union men. without condition. Thnro who
. Toled, voted llio Union ticket. Over a
million, and a quarter of men aro in tho
army, tnd navy of tlio United plates. Tho
Stales iu wkicb tlio Into elections, have been
bold, fivrnlf hod tlw grent majority of these
men. Hud they been permitted to voto,.tlio
result In nil probability would havo been
lln"ercnt. If 120 Union men and f0 scces-.-ion
sympathizers live in u township or pre
cinct, mid tlio Union men nearly all volun
teer for tlio war, and, tho sympathizers re
main nt homo ami carry that township, is
tliis evidence of a political revolution !
The, Indianapolis Journal furnishc sonic
Interesting facts on this hubjecfr which we
subjoin :
Tn tho Ninth District, whpro thr.Rcpubll
cants had 3,000 majority in ltf!0. they have
uow.,'rM more than JpO. Thr so thousand
,'Aliolitlon rebels" havo gono to war from
that district and aro now In Kentucky. If
15,000" Democrats" havo gone from there, ns
tho Louisville Democrat bad nwrtcd, how
in It-that tho total vote of tho Sta to is near
Jv as largo as ever? On tho other hnnd,
tills coiinty. which gave but 3.1 " I.'omocrnt
io" majority in 18(50. now gives over 2.000.
and has 1..100 volunteers iu t.'io field.
Hither thoe volunteers wero all ' Aboli
tionists," or tho last majority was ,'io most
Ififamous fraud over pcrpulratcd. The
Eleventh District iu 18(!0 gavo n JUpubll
c.ut majnrltly of two thousand. It now
elves a "Democratic" majority of '100.
Over 2.000 men havo gono to tho war tn m
tho Eleventh District. Yet tho vote of tlio
District is as largo as it was in 18f0 J
Schuyler Colfax devoted his wholo oncrgies
to recruiting volunteers in wns eiisinci. mm
was warned that by thus drawing off tho
Union men ho was endangering his own re
election to Congress, yet ho persisted. Ho
obtained nbout 220 majority; wheras.tf ho
had persuaded I ho Union men to remain at
homo until after tho election, his majority
would havo been numbered by thousands.
Add to tho nbovo tho fact, that a large
majority of tlio persons elected on tho vari

crats ;" men in favor of tho vigorous prp.se

Nov. 17th, 1862.
Kn. SRNTrxw.. As I have frequently
promised to give my views upon the rais
ing, manufacturing, und profits ol tho to
bacco plant, I will try at this Into hour to
fulfill the promise. In the first place, the
need should be sown by tho middle of Feb
ruary, to have the plants attain sufficient
8i7.o to transplant by tho first of April
sowing tho seed inter, the plant will bo too
backward to get tho benefit of the spring
rains, which is very csscntiul to the growth
of the plant while young. Tobacco needs
more moisture than any oilier ptnut, on
account of its rapid growth, lienco the
necessity of early planting. This ground
should bo plowed, and hills formed, at least
ono week before transplanting, ns thu
ground will retain the moisture much long
er titan if transplanted immediately after
plowing. Tlio plants should bo set about
three und n-half feet apart, which will give
room for about threo thousand nnd five
hundred plants to the acre. The place
where the plant Is to be set should not be
raised above the level of tho ground around
it, us the wntcr would bo thrown from
the plant. After transplanting, tho ground
should not bo disturbed us long us the
weeds do not interfere with its growth.
As soon ns there uro twelve perfect leaves
formed on the stalk (besides two or three
should bo broken as soon us possiblo, as
they tuko part of the nourishment from the
plant. When the tobacco is ready to cut
it should be done ns early in the morning
ns possible, ns the hot sun is very injurious;
nnd. us soon ns it could bo moved without
breaking, it should be taken to tho curing
house nnd hung up immediately, us it will
soon go into a sweat if left in heaps
Tho house used for curing should be as
open as possible, without having tho to
bacco broken by tho wind.

AVoor, Statistics. We condense the
following facts from tho Oregon Farmer:
In 1810 the number of sheep in tlio United
States was u fraction under 20,000000.
Iu 1S.10, the number was n trillo under
'J'J,000,000, and their yield of wool was
put down at f0,000,()00, pounds. The
gain in tho decade being only 2,000,000.
' I It is presumed, says our author, that the
increuso irom itsau in iouu nus oniy oceu
about 3,000,000 giving as tho probable
number of sheep in the United Stutes at
this time, nt 2."),000,000. Tlioy produce
about ono third of the wool u?ed in the
country annually. Tho lowest grades of
wool ure worth -10 cents per pound iu tlio
Kastern State.

And if thero is not- n speedy change onr
