marching aud couutermarubiug through

iu the march was 'ii hours.
Tho residences of most Democrats on tbe
line of march were haudsumly illuminated,
though many refused to illuminate because
they objected to holding tho demonstration
until a final declaration of the result of the
election bad been made. One of tbe best
displays was at the Itetunuer ofll-Je and Ty

The finest and by all means the most lively
demonstration of the evening took place on
Forest square near Mr. Crowell's and in his
honor, apparently, as tbe leader of tbe Brat
tleboro independents. Itl tbe rear of tbe
procession was an express wagon with a head
light in front, containing a large store of
rockets, romau caudles and other fireworks,
which G. L. Clary and D. E. Taeker set off
along tho route. Opposite Mr. Crowell's a
big rocket was lighted in bis honor. The
rocket "tizz-d." but refused to mount into
tbe upper regions. The fire from it set other
rockets on fire, and in a great deal less time
than it takes to tell it tbreo large boxes of
fireworks were on fire, including 300 rockets
aud ISO romau candles. The display which
followed was a lively one, as we have inti
mated, and Ibsre was some lively getting out
of tbe way of It. Clary, Tasker aud their
driver bad barely time to escape the coulla
gration, aud as it was tbe two former were
burned ou their right hands. They sought
the services of an "independent" surgeon,
gtad to have escaped so well, aud the "fire
works wagon" was left out over the rest of
the line of mareh.
