Election in Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Tho olection returns in Ohio and'
Pennsylvania lcavo tho result still
doubtful. In Ohio there will bo n1
Democratic majority in tho Legisla-I
turo, but it is doubted whether Pen-'
dlcton is elcctcd governor over Haves', j
In Penns3'lvania, tho ' Republicans
liavo carried the Legislature, and
probably elcctcd Geary over Packer, j
Tho following aro the returns:
Washington, October 13.?Noon.?
Careful comparison, based on partial!
returns from thirty counties, inciiifling
Philadelphia and Allegany, shows
a, Democratic^ gain of nearly. 4.000.
Tho remaining Counties must average
nearly 200gain to elect Packer. Geary's
majority in Philadelphia was 3,-339.
Cincinnati, October 13.?Hamilton
County gives Pendleton 500 majority, I
<ind elects the entire Democratic municipal
ticket. Pendleton is defeated j
by a very small majority; eorrcetcd j
returns may elect him. Tho House j
is Democratic; the Senate Ttcpubli-!
can. This defeats the State's sane-'
tion of the fifteenth amendment.
PiiTAErELrHiA, October 13.?Bolhj
branches of the J.cgislalurc arc Tic- j
publican. The Senate stands 18toj
15 ; House 3G to 17?giving 29 majority
on joirit ballot. All the papers
but tho Age give tbe Stale to (ioarjby
from 0.000 to 10,000. Tho Aye
claims 5,000 for Packer.
Cleveland, October 13.?Returns j
from the third district state that)
-Hayes losses 5,000. This average, if
carried throughout the State, will
vloct ITayes ty 6.000 majority. The
Democratic strongholds aro still unheard

ly-six Counties is nearly* 5,000. The!
remaining thirty Counties must average
157 gsin to elect-Packer. The
Viection will bo very close, bat the
^thancos are in favor of deary.

the managers as to their duties with

the scene was somewhat bewildering. \
It was diflicult to^ay which was most fbeautiful,
