SThia looks as if we were getting back 'to onr normal condition, and gives us good ground for urging ab sentees to return and resume their busi ness. There is now no danger. The weather continues most unfavorable for tie spread of the disease, and all the indications point to an entire cessation of the fever within this week. THE TEXAS PACIFIC.

The election passed off quietly, with no disturbance of any kind whatever. The utmost good feeling appeared to exist between all classes of voters. The results have not yet been ascertained. Almost the entire vote was cast and the voting was close. All is quiet Associated Press Report. Jackson, Miss., November 4. But little interest is snown in the election to-day. From all quarters, the vote is reported as on.vthird short The falling oil in JacKson is from 500 to 900 votes. Ames's majority in tbe city is estimated at 300, which is a small Republican re duction. The independent candidates for county offices are numerous. The Democrats had no ticket in this county. There is much delay in counting. VICUSBCBG. Vicksbukg. November 4. The elec tion passed off quietly. Only about half tne usual vote cast Alcorn has proba bly carried the city and county. Scratch ing prevailed to a considerable extent at all the polls. Nothing can be obtained that is reliable. HATCHEZ. Natchez, November 4. The election was quiet, weather bad and the vote small. This county gives Ames 1500 majority. The returns are not sufficient to indicate the general result. NEW YORK. If EW YORK CITY. New York, November 4. The elec tion of the Tammany county ticket is generally conceded, with doubts about Donahue fur tbe supreme court The contest is exciting only in the assembly and senate districts. Tom Murphy and Colonel Lester are said to have charged Arthur, Sheridan, Shank and the com missioner. Van iNort, and two other representative Republicans, with desert ing tne combination tteset, and giving their suDDort to William Walsh, for county clerk, against the Republicans and the Appollo hall candidate, Jacob 7lf Daft.Knn fltl i n Kt,Unfi'ni la reported as threatening to call off his Republican voters rrom the Mcuoole combination candidate for sheriff, and he in turn is said to be urging his fol lowers to defeat Murphy's plans, and to vote for Walsh. The fight in some of the senate and assembly districts is bit- ter. and the Dollce commissioners are showing their hands. Some of the Tam many inspectors nave been arrested, and Apollo hall Democrats substituted. This is in the interest or the comnma tion. Few fights have occurred in the several districts. Both inspectors and poll-clerks failed to make their appear ance at tne appointed time, dui tne va cancies were speedily filled by others, wno were sworn in. The State election returns are coming in by townships and districts. Sixty- rour or these show the total .Republican majorities to beSSSl; Democratic major ities, 2lo; net K'puwican majority, 11S6. The vo'e for secretary of state, compared with the same vote in 1S71, is used as the basis of comparison, and shows the total Republican gains to be 6S3; total Democratic gains, 2162; net Democratic gains, 1479. s:io p.m. ;no uennite returns have been received from any part of this city. It is claimed the city nas gone Tammany-Democratic by from 15,000 to 20,000 majority. If the latter figures, prove correct, there is not much doubt but that tbe State has gone Democratic by several thousand. The election or b. b. Uox to congress is conceded. Returns from Brooklyn indicate that Hunter, Democrat, for mayor, has been elected, and the Demo cratic majority for secretary of state will probably reach five thousand. Addi tional towns from the interior ot the State give nett Republican majority of 220; nett Democratic gain, 1393. Nett nepuoiican majority in tne n towns thus far 33S6; a nett Democratic gain of 2372. Interior towns additional to tbose sent. give the net Republican majority at 3620; net Republican majority in total of one hundred and eighty-two towns and cities, 5229. This includes Syracuse city, with a Republican majority of 1W7, and Auourn city, .Republican ma jority of 736. Nothing up to 10:15 p.m., from the city election. Kensealier county gives a Republican majority of 1000. Thirty-nine addition al towns and districts give a net Repub lican majority of 571 ; the net Republi can majority in Zil towns and districts is 5S01. Poughkeepaie City gives a Democratic majority of 87, a Democrat ic gain over 1S72 of 836. In this city, so far, the vote upon tbe State ticket is greatly mixed, owing to the attempted combination between Apollo hall and the Republicans. Despite the ear'y closing of the polls, and the expectation of early returns from even remote parts of the city the result of the election has been slow, tbe delay being due to the necessity that the officials are under ot canvassing very long lists of names em braced in the general ticket. At this hour the returns of the vote for sheriff I are still lacking in a number of dis tricts, but the total iigures received so far leave no doubt of the election of Conner for sheriff, and Walsh for county clerk by very large majorities. The vote for sheriff thus far stands: Conner, Democrat 21.992, McCool, 11,548. For county clerk: Walsh, Democrat, 16,806, Paterson, Republican, 12,456. Returns from overone-third of the city Indicate a majority for Conner for sheriff of 25,000. and Walsh for county clerk, 13,000. Ten election districts in the sixth congressional district gives B. S. Cox 1173, Wadaworth 458. The vote ou the Judicial amendment to the State institution is so trixUng as to be scarce ly worth mentioning, certainly not' worth convafcinc to-night 11:35 p.m. Beturns ot half the oKyj gives Conner a majority of 14,600, and Walsh a majority of 7654.

Ex -Mayor Gaston, the lemocratic candidate for governor, is receiving a handsome vote m .Boston .Scattering returns rrom an parts of the State, showing a rather light vote as compared to 18' and 1S72, and indicating the re election of Governor Washburn by from 800 to 1000 plurality. The Anti-prohi- mtion was an element or strength to the Democrats, and their candidate. Mr. Gaston, received a heavy vote in several larger cities and towns from the opponents of anti-prohibition. The contest for State senator in the fifth Suffolk district resulted in the election of Jonathan A Lane on the Republican citizen's ticket by over looo majority over John r. bteven- son, who was a candidate on both the regular Democratic and Republican tickets. In the second Middlesex dis trict General N. P. Banks was also elected senator overihe regular Republi can candidate by a handsome plurality. The returns for governor from sixty-two towns, root up lor vvashburn, li.b'Jo: Gaston, 7605. The vote of Boston, with the exception of three wards, returns from which are not in. gives Gaston about 1600 plurality. Low ell gives Washburn 15S4, Gaston 2170. Worcester gives Washburn 2162, Gaston bU, and also elects a Democratic sena tor and members of the bouse of repre sentatives. The vote of 113 cities and towns foots up: Washburn, 33,023; Gaston, 30,947. Last year the same towns gave Washburn, 46,160; Bird, 24,119. Washburn's plurality last year was about lio.wo, which the returns so rar indicate has been cut down about one half at this election. The Republican ticket for State officers is elected, and the Republican council lor ticket together with a Republican majority m both brancaes or tne legis lature. Banks's plurality for State sen ator is over 1500. Chas. Hale is elected to the legislature from Boston by a large majority. SIICKIGAH. DETROIT. Detroit, November 4. The muni cipal election in this city passed off very quietly. Twelve precincts heard from give Moffat, Republican, for mayor, 6S0 majority. His majority will probably reach 1000. The Republicans elect city clerk, attorney, director of poor. The Democrats elect police justice, and pro bably treasurer and j'ustice of the peace. The Republicans will have a majority of one or two in tbe city council- and a malonty or the board or estimate. Meagre returns from the special election in the congressional district leaves the matter in doubt. The" cities of Grand Haven. Yonia and Holland, and fifteen towns give Williams, Republican, a ma jority of 200, a large Republican loss over the vote of 1S72. 12 sr. The vote in the fifth congres sional district is very light and extreme ly close. Indications are that Williams, Republican, is elected by a majority not exceeding 200 or 300. Grand Rapids gives Comstock, Democrat, 351 majori ty; Grand Haven, 83; Muskegon, 173; J onia, 114; Spring Lake, 46. Willians has 110 majority in Holland, 145 in Allegan, 30 in Lowell, 61 in Saugatuck. Other towns in Allegan county will raise his majority to euu. In Detroit, Moffat's majority for mayor will reach nearly 1500. The Re publicans will carry the entire city ticket, except the police justice and jus tice or tne peace, with treasurer m doubt chances in favor of the Repub- cans. "WISCONSIN- MILWAUKEE. Milwaukee. November 4. The first ward of the city of Milwaukee, Taylor, Democrat, 468 majority; seventh ward, Taylor 297; fourth ward, Taylor 112; eleventh ward, Taylor 523; sixth ward, Taylor SS0; ninth ward, Taylor 654. AU of the Democratic assembly men elected. Estimated tbe Democratic majority to be over 5000. The city of Milwaukee complete gives Taylor, the Democratic candidate for governor, 8300 majority; county es timated at SOOO. All the Democratic assemblymen in the county elected. The daily Sentinel, the Washburn organ, estimates from the way returns are coming in, that Taylor will carry the State by 5000 majority. Prominent Republicans now concede "W ashburn's defeat In the towns representing a total vote of 2S000 Taylor's gain is 3400, ex clusive of the vote of Milwaukee, in which Taylor gains 5000. XADISOX CITT. Madison City, November 4. Tay lor, 124; Janesville City, Washburne, 41. Scattering returns so far show that the Democrats have gained largely over the vote of two years ago. ILXINOIS. CAIRO. Caibo, November 4. The election passed off quietly. Politics were ignored, the interest being chiefly centered in the vote on the county commissioners who favored or opposed the further issue of bonds in aid of the St Louis narrow guage railroad. The Brass county judge and Lynch county clerk are probably re-elected. The votes are not likely to be counted in time to give the result to night CHICAGO. Chicago, November 4. Returns from the city election come in slowly, but enough Is known to insure the elec tion of the entire people's ticket over the citizens', or law-and-order ticket, by a majority of five to seven thousand, and twelve out of twenty aldermen on tbe same ticket. The former ticket was headed by H. D. Colvin for mayor, and the latter by L. Bond, the present acting mayor. One of the principal points at issue was tbe bunday liquor law, which will doubtless be defeated.

They were confronted by Colonel Dalzac, who positively contra dicted their statements. The Dominion Parliament, Ottawa, November 4 In parlia ment last night the debate was con tinued by Sir John A. MacDonald, who delivered a vigorous and exhaustive speech lasting five hours, and was only concluded at two o'clock this morning. He reviewed the constitutional question and appointment of commission, and spoKe or worn done by tne royal com mission, and observed that he relied upon a report, and considered it beneath him to vindicate the charac ter of commissioners. Judge Wil son, a long political opponent or his had declared that he saw nothing to criminate tbe government Had he (Sir John) yielded to-the black-mailing attempt of McMuller.thesecharges would never nave been heard of. He referred to the charges made against him in con nection with the Washington treaty, and to his triumphant refutation of them. He alluded to the policy of bis government respecting Nova Scotia and British Co lumbia, challenging the leader of the opposition to appoint a committee to investigate the whole question of ex penditure in reference to the election. and expressed confidence that the re sult would show that more members on the opposition side owe their seats to corrupt means than on tho ministerial side. He strongly blamed Sir Hugh Allen for the delay in apprising his American friends of tho fact that the government had determined to have nothing to do with them, and would not screen the living at the expense of the dead, but neither Sir George Cartier nor any other single minister was able to bind the governmeni. He defended the directors of the Pacific railway, and quoted English precedents for his own handling of the election fund. He expressed regret that Mr. Huntington hail not been before the royal commission to cross-examine. He defied his opponent to show a line in the Pacific charter which bore out the charge that Sir Hugh Allan hasobtained anypreferenceoradvantage.Hedeclared himself equal to victory or defeat, and appealed to the house to support the man who has spent his lifetime in the service of Canada. After the premier had taken his seat, Hon. . Mr. Blake made a few remarks and continued the debate. On the opening of the house to-day every member was in the capitol, with the exception of Louis Riel, mem ber for the provence of Manitoba. ST.
