[Entered at the Posto?ice at Alexandria, Virginia, as
STew Jersey's Senator.
Rufus Blodgett, superintendent of the
New York and Long Branch Railroad, and
formerly member of the New Jersey Assem?
bly and of the democratic State Central
Committee, was yesterday afternoon elected
United States Senator, to succeed Hon. Wm.
J. Sewell, whose term expires next Friday.
The election was effected after a series of the
most exciting scenes. When tho.joint meet?
ing assembled at four o'clock, after recess,
two democrats (Bloomer and Lennon) were
absent. Tho democrats, cocsciou; of the
republican caucus held early in the after?
noon, wero apprehensive, and tried to delay
proceedings till their full number was pre?
sent. Senator Edwards (dem.; moved to
tako a half hour's recess, but the motion
failed. Then Mr. Barrett (dem.) moved for
an hour's recess. While the roll call on this
question was proceeding the absentees
walked in. Thereupon Mr. Barrett with?
drew his motion, and President Fish order
ed tho tenth ballot for United States Sena?
tor. Tho galleries were thronged with
people at the time, and there was
scarcely an inch of unoccupied apace
on the floor The roll call began
under impressive silence. Ackerman
(rep.) the lirst on the list, voted for Rufus
Blodgett. Armstrong (rep.) followed suit.
The decision of the republican caucus was
now munilest. They had agreed to consoli?
date ou a democrat for tho purpose of de?
feating Abbett. Every republican on the
roll, with tho exception of Letts aud Dick
insou, voted for Blodgett. The two named
still stood for Sewoli. Baird (speaker) and
Chaitlo and Throckrnorton (dems.) also
voted for Blodget t. This gave him 39 votes.
Abbett got his solid 35, with those of Carrol!
(labor) and Senators Chase and McBride ad?
ded. Carroll made a speech in explanation
of his vote, and at the close was wildly
cheered by the democrats. For several
minutes there was so much confusion that
business had to be suspended. Donohue,
the other lubor man, aunounced his inten?
tion to ."top with Erastus E. Potter to the
end. Ktnney (dem.) still voted for Kays.
This was the result: Abbett, 3S : Blodgett,
36 ; Sewell, 2 ; Potter, 1; Kays, 1. Total, 81.
President Fish ordered a second baliot.
It proceeded without change till Kenney
was reached ; ho swung into the Blodgolt
columns, bringing Blodgett within one of a
majority. Letts (rep.) then forsook Soweil
and voted for Abbett. This raised tire fail
iog hopes of tho Abbett parly momentarily.
But. at the end of the roli and before tho
result was announced, Mr. Dickinson (rep ),
Sewell's sole remaining supporter, aroseand
changed to Blodgett. The crowd did not
grasp the situation for several seconds, but
when the report circulated that this elected
Blodgett, cheers went up from the republi
caus aud disaffected democrats, mingled
with hisses aud howls.
Just tf. President Fish was about to au
Dcunce the result Senator Eiwsirds (dem.)
sprang to his feel. There was so much cou
fusion that the chair was about to decliuo to
recognize bim, but consented, when order
was restored, to hear Edwards. Edwards'
object was to make a speech explaining a
chaugeof his vote to Sewell, aud his purpose
was to get republicans and democrats, to
tho number of forty one to change to Sewell,
and thus snatch from Blodgett the victory
which he had iuat snatched from Abbett.
While Edwards was still calling for recog?
nition, couriers went in among the republi?
cans trying to get them into the movement.
The project, however, was too full of com?
plications, aud they refused to risk the com?
parative victory they had won. It might
change the tide, aud give Abbett another
life. Numbers of other democrats, with the
same view as Edwards, tried to change their
votes, but, when thev saw the republicans
kept aloof from tho deal, they generally re?
traced their steps. Senator Chase (dem.)
however, changed to Blodgett. The ballot
?tood thee: Blodgett,42; Abbett,?S; E.E.
Potter, 1. The scene at tho aunouncement
of the result was one cf diro confusion. The
joint, meeting at 5:->0 p. m. adjourned with?
Rufus Blodgett, the new senator, was
born in Dorchester, New Hampshire, Nov.
9, 1834. He was a member of the lower
; house of the New Jersey Legislature in 1S7S
I and 1ST!', represeutintr Ocean county. He
afterwards removed to Monmouth couuty,
! where he now resides. He i3 identified with
j the iuterosts of several railroad companies,
j and was always recognized as a staunch
I democrat. In the Assembly he was tho
democratic leader. He is a ilueut speaker,
; and is of commanding figure. He was for
j several years a member of the democratic
State central committee.
