THE LESSON OP THE ELEC
TIONS. Tiik lesson taught by tho lato elections
Is ono which wo hopo, In all future con
tests, will bo heeded by tho Democratic
party. Tho groat mistake they have
mado wo proposo briefly to state, and at
tho samo tlmo show tho importance of
more liberal action in the future.
Tho Radicals aro excessively Jubilant
over tho results of tho lato elections, and
hold them up as emphatic endorsements
of their peculiar policy. Tliero nover
was a greater mistake whon people ac
cept this as tho logical result of tho can
vass. Tho votes cast for the Itadical
candidates were given for a diirercnt
Tho late war Is at tho present tlmo a
most Important feature In tho elections.
Tho people cmpliatlcally endorse that
contest, and aro consequently precise in
their selection of candidates for whom
to voto with a good record In this re
spect. Tho Democrats havo failed to take ad
vantage of this feeling In their selection
of candidates ; but havo nominated meu
who, while they did not oppose tho war,
were lukewarm In Its support. Wo saw
this in our own State In the lato election,
and tho lesson has just been repeated In
New York. We do not mean to say,
however, that tho candidate for Govern
or In this Stato was morally an opjwser
of tho war.forwo do not believe It; but
tlds was tho general belief, and it was
cosy under such circumstances to in
crease Oils belief to a positive convic
tion. It was the samo In New York. Mr.
Hoffman, when recorder, was a favorite
With alt parties, for ho proved himself
n most upright judge, without that fil
ing for political friends in rendering a
judicial decision which Is so conspicu
ously a part of tho Judicial system or
New York. But with all his popularity
as a judge, ho failed as a candidate for
Governor, mainly for the reason we
havo before stated. The samo chargo
could not be mado against Governor
Fouton, and ho was elected.
If tho Democrats In this Stato as well
as iu Now York had nominated a man
like General Dlx (he was a candldato at
the nominating convention in tho latter
Stato, and wo belioo was the fnvoritu
with tho late Dean IUchmond, a life-long
.ucmocrnt,and nclear-headed politician),
who would doubt his election? Tho
Conservative Republicans of that State
desired ht nomination, and would have
united with the Democrats in his elec
tion. But It was necessary that tho
Democratic party should be alono In Its
supremacy ; and wo sco the result.
It was tho samo wav at tho last bcs-
bIoh of Congress, on tho voto in tho
j louse lortiioimiicuon of negro suffrage

THE AUSTRIAN EVACUATION
Tnr.r.nwasa trampling of feet along

four o'clock this iiiorntng. As tho foot
falls grow fainter and fainter, thero was
a hoarso word of eommaud, and a hurry

tliero was a dead silence again, and wo
had the last of thu Austrian lu Venice.
At Ave o'clock I found tho Natlonnl

fleld-pleecs at tho corner of tho ducal

group of shivering spectators had col
lected under tho colonade, whero not a
sign of tho Iron railings could now bo
detected. It was very cold, cold oven
for an October night in England, bnt
thero was clear starlight overhead, nnd
promise of lino weather during tho fes
tival. How well that promise was ful
filled, and how the first day of freedom
was as bright nnd cheerful as tho most
sangulno could havo hoped, Venice
will long remember. By eight o'clock
tho city was partially decked with trl
colored Hags, tho public impatience
would not bo restrained, and by half
past eight thero was an Immense con-
course of peopleassembled at tho Palaco
of St. Mark, with every eyo bent upon
the tall red flagstaff of tho old republic.
A spaco had been cleared Immediately
oround their pedestals, and a hollow
square formed by tho National Guard
kept open this upacc. At tho foot of
each flagstaff was a huge tricolor bear
lug tho cross of Savory and a royal
crown upon its centre, and ready bent
for hoisting. More and moro people
came; the minutes wero counted with
breathless eagerness. Now thero was

Tho grand canal, at ono o'clock this
afternoon, presented a scene which you
might search over tho world iu vain to
equal. Tho varied architecture of tho
palaces on either side, with flags, carpet,
and tapestry hung outfroni the windows,
enhanced tho effect of tho procession
which passed botwecn them. Gondolas
of every size, darting forward in a
many-colored squadron, led tho way.
Thero wero crows in carnival costumo

hats, laced jackets, and white- pan

blue sashes, velvet caps and silken
streamers, tricolor scarfs, tricolor cock
ades, and velvet cushions trimmed with
silver lace. Tho oar blades glanced in
the sparkling water, nud tho smooth,
sharp bows appeared scarcely to disturb
its surface. Thus passed thu head of the
procfc-slon, and handkerchiefs were
waved and cheers rang out in honor of
so lino a show. Then thero was an in
terval of silence until the main body
hove in sight, and then tho handker
chiefs wero waved with redoubled en
ergy. Tho cheering swelled into a con
tinuous roar from wludow, wharf, nnd
balcony. Vculco was receiving tho In
vited guests. Tho main body consisted
of heavy barges crowdcil with Italian
soldiers, which wero towed and puutod
very slowly from tho railway station to
St. Mark's. Tho hand of tho National
Guard came first, followed by a detach
ment of tho same corps, by bersnglleii,
and by infantry of tho Hue. " Long
Hvo our soldiers!" was shouted from
thu shore. " Long Jive thu Venetians!"
was answered from thu barges. Flowers
were thrown by fair hands, which often
euuld not tlaow them far enough. And
tho soldiers cheered and thu ollleois
bowed profoundly, assome blight houi-
front showed even moro than usual of
waving handkerchiefs, or of flushed'

The monthly report of Isaac Newton,
Commissioner of Agriculture, says tho
returns of local correspondents up to tho
first of October verify, In all essential
particulars, tho statements respecting
tho crops contained in previous month
ly exhibits. Tho condition of corn lias
suffered some deterioration from early
frosts and oxcosslvo rains, but tho quan
tity of tho crop is larger than tho largest
over heretofore chronicled m tho coun
try. In tho production of wheat, next
to corn our most Important cereal, our
agriculture has been unfortunnto for tho
past threo seasons. The estimate for
tho present year, now nearly completo,
will not vary much from 143,000,000
bushels, showing n small percentngo of
docrcaso, which Is fully compensated by
tho comparatively superior quality of
tho grain, as was predicted in a preced
ing number. This is 10,000,000 biwhels
moro than the crop of 1859, and Is with
in 6,000,000 of a product in proportion
to tho increased population. Tho dim
inution in tho South is moro apparent.
Tho estimates point to less than 17,000,
000 bushels In tho cloven States hereto
fore unreported, a fraction loss than ftvo
tenths of the crop of 1859. It Is worthy
of remark, in connection with tho dim
inutlon of tho threo past seasons, that
tlio wneat crop of England lias been
Hkowlso deficient since 18C1.
TheCallfornln wheat harvest, of which
littlo mention has lccn publicly made
In connection with tho present crop, Is
excessive. In 1800 tho product of tlio
young Stato was nearly 0,000,000 bush
els ; now it Is seriously claimed by lead
ing Cullfornlo agriculturists that tho
surplus for export will bo nearly double
that quantity. It Is ovldent that the
entire wheat crop will oxcood, by sev
eral millions, that of 1859, when tho
yield was reported at 173,101,921 bush
els. Then thero were Ave nnd a half
bushels to each Individual. In 1800
tlio estimates point to five bushels to
each inhabitant. Tliero is then no
ground for apprehension of scarcity, and
littlo oxcuso In tho amount of tho crop
for starvation prices.
The yield of oats Is extraordinary, and
tho quality excellent. Tho indications
point to an increaso from 171,197,072
buhcl3 in 1839 to 271,012,023 In 1860. It
Is tlio only crop In tho South that main
tained an equality with tho last ceusus
Hay li loss In quantity than in tho
previous year by from ouo to t.wo tenths,
but Is better In quality.
An aualy?la of thu Houthorn returns
up to October first do. not warrant u re
duction of tho former cottou estimates
much below ono and threo fourth mil
