Bad news for Wine drinkers.

--‘Sad news for the wine drinkers, says the Boston Post. The vintage throughout France is declared to be a "lamentable"one. At Bordeaux the wine will be bad, except that which the lower classes consume. In Champagne all will be bad. In Burgundy things are melancholy, but the proprietors are trying the aid of sugar — a hearing with small comfort in it. cognac gives wine sorely deficient in alcohol, which deficiency will not suit the rocky metropolis of brandy. Roussillon and St. Emilian are said to be capable of better things; but Orleans is again unlucky. And the Ruine and the Moselle are swollen by the tears of the proprietors, whose wine will be "scarcely drinkable."’
