TllK precautions of the Mayor to in.
Furc peace and quiet in the city, yes
terday, is descrviug of all praio. The
city was full of negroes, an many an
two hundrcd'of thorn having come from
all point on either river to vote, and us
tin! result shows, a number of tliem to
' Vote illegally. The excitement on
eithomide had been' worked up to fever
hunt, and the struggle for the ascend
ancy in tho city was nrtiro and deter
mined. Hut, thanks to tho vigilance
hud efficiency of tho poice, and tho
determination of tho butter cla of
citizens to preserve peace, the day pa.-ed
off without any disturbance of any char
uclcr. On the part nf tho Democratic citi
zcius thuro w.u nil invincible determin
ation to preserve tho jieace, In this
determination they were joined by tho
respectable Iladical citizens, and peace
and quiet were tho result.
The returns received up to noon to
day show the inoht gratifying Ileum
cratie gains and triumphs everywhere.
There uo longer any doubt of the
triumphant election of the Democratic
ticket iu Alexander county, and of tho
election of Col. John M. Crebs to Con
gross from tho lllth CnngrcBsloual Dis
trict. A'o also feol nssurcd of tho dec
tiouof Holcoiuband Gibson to the Htnto

gratifying" to tho Deinocraoy. Tho
lion, b'am Marshall has increased his
majority threo or four thousand votes,
and thojiidicatious tuc that tho Kndical
Htato tioket; if elected at all, will suc
ceed, by a greatly .reduced majority.
Judgo y, Itico, Domoerat, is elco

by a tuajprity of three thousand votes.
As to tho comploxion of tho Lcgis

are certain, Alexander county will bo
