FRIDAY EVENING, MAY 27.
Yor this section, cool, generally fair weather,
reliable wiuda goterally northwesterly.
The ELECTION in this city yesterday re?
sulted in a democratic victory?all the bond
t oncers, at least, ofthat party having been
g]( ted to serve for the ensuing two years.
jq a fe?v cases Councilmen who bad received
the democratic nomination in the primary
election were defeated, but the bulk of the
I cket was eminently successful, notwith?
standing the combined efforts of quondam
democrats, negroes and bolters to bring
al,?iit a contrary result. This is tho second
time in the past two years that the party,
like a rock amid the angry bilious, has
proved itself invulnerable to the onslaughts
of old foes and recent renegades in hotly
contested local issues. As stated yes?
terday, tho partisans of the two parties
worked assiduously to secure tho success of
their respective tickets, and at sundown,
when the polls were closed, it was impossi?
ble to say which had been triumphant. The
fjAZKTTS office remained open until ouo
0 clock this morning, during which time it
(ras crowded with persons anxious to learn
the result. As the returns from the differ
eot wards came in and were read out, show?
ing the result, the applause was vociferous
iod tbe enthusiasm intense.

into the well, the cover of which had been
taken off. It contained considerable water,
but after floundering around for some time
the unlucky darkey succeeded in resting his
feet upon a barrel or box, which had previ?
ously fallen into the well, and which ena?
bled him to keep hi? head above water. Iu

and members of the family hearing his ap
peals descended to the cellar, but, it being
