Jodtelal Election. ,
' The election passed off quietly yester
day, owing, in a great degree, to the effi
cient police regulations, aud no disturb
ance look place whatever. ' The Radicals
being divided in the election of Cbao
oellor, worked with desperation, and we
are sorry to confess that the Democratic
party (ailed to concentrate on. their own
candidate and elect bim. Many went off
with the Hunter wing, saying there wss
"no chance" to elect Caruthers, and
they wanted to see Barbour Lewis and
the, Smith party defeated. Suoh.men
ought to be ashamed to hold np their
heads before an outraged community,
and deserve io' be disfranchised forever
and placed under an empire, where one
man thinks for all.
Repeated reverses have demoralized
the party, and many have voted against
their convictions for the sake of being on
the winning side. In the hour of weak
ness and doubt tbey desert the party like
rats leaving a sinking ship, bat should a
day of victory and' power ever come for
our canse, these weak-kneed Democrats
who vote the Radical ticket will be the
first to take front seats and the most
blatant in boasting of what "we have
done." We hope that all such will be
marked well, and when different results
are achieved, they will be forced to re
main in the company they have selected.
The returns received thus far are as fol

The only additional returns received
to-day, np to one o'clock, were from Big
Creek and While's station. The Big
Creek district gave Hunter 27, Caruthers
2, and Smith 1. The returas from White's
station are not large, and will probably
be thrown out, owing to some informality.
Judge Hunter has discovered that exten.
in franda have been perpetrated. He
is, donbtless, well posted on the subject,
having been engaged night and day for
some weeks in tampering with country
nesroes and peddling out tickets. If
any man has a right to speak out against
franda it is " stop thief" Hunter. He
baa been beaten, donbtless, by his own
game, and feels sore over it. ,
The election of yesterday shows the
election of three of our candidates. - In
the case of Foute and Ryan the returns,
as made, show handsome majorities. In
the case of Wallace one fact conceded to
bstrue, both actually and in point ol
law, shews a majority in his favor of not
less than four hundred. It is not denied
that no person is entitled to vote tor
Judge of the Criminal Court unless he
lives within the territorial jurisdiction ot
the Court, comprised within the S'.h, 13th
and 14th Civil Districts of this county.
The colored voUs ii the Ninth and First
Wards alone show that of the nine
hundred and fifty votes five hundred were
caBtby persons residing not within the
jurisdiction of the Court; all of which
were cast for Major Hudson, ana
were counted in the aggregate returns
as made. These ballots, of course, will
be subtracted from the aggregate vote of
Major Hudson, which will give Wal
lace the majority as above stated.
This result if gratifying, for even the
political opponents of Mr. tyallape con
cede to him great energy and large ex
perience, and an intimate knowledge of
the present condition of the Criminal
Court docket, now crowded with hun
dreds of prisonere, yearly entailing npon
as over one hundred thousand dollars per
annum, without giving to this commu
nity any compensating relief by the
prompt punishment of the innumera
ble violations of our laws.
A an evidence of Mr. Wallaces ca
pacity, e have been informed by one fa
miliar with the affaire of the Court, that
at one term (lone there were convicted
and sentenced to the penitentiary of this
State prisoners whose aggregate periods
of confinement and Tabor amoanted to
two hundred and eighty years. Let ns,
therefore, look to the reorganization of
the priowssl Court with a confident be
lief of great retrenchment, and a prompt
and vigorous administration of the laws
of the Slate.
Messrs. Ryan and Fonte are gentle
men who command the confidence of the
public and the respect of the bar. They
will make efficient, impartial administra
tors of justice.

The shooting affray at the Parlor Music
all, on Jeffenon street,' night .before
last, resulted moBt tragically. . The wound
reoeived by Hons. Veandemont, the
maitre it hallet, at first supposed te be
slight, proved to be fatal. . After being
wounded be was conveyed to hie lodgings
bo Main street, near Washington, where
be was attended by Dr. Lynch. Early
yesterday he showed symptoms of sink
ing, and in the afternoon the doctor in
formed him that he could not live. ' He
bad suffered intensely, but met bis fate
with great courage. He sent for Father
Kelly and received the consolations of
the Catholic Church. . He said he could
die bravely, but it grieved his
heart to leave his companion of
the ean-ean, Mademoiselle Aline Le
Favre, whom bo bad hoped one day
to see great and rich in the world. In his
last moments he expressed a desire to be
married to her, that she might inherit
certain property which would one day
fall to him in France. A license was
procured as quick as possible. His real
name wasigiven as Arthur De Pelgraoe J
here as Maggie Cox. 'They were mar
ried at three o'clock by Father Kelly:
Only two persons were present, Mr.
Henry Drennan and Miss Catharine
Sharpe, both strangers to the bridegroom
and bride. The bride was disconsolate,
and gave way to the most fearfsl grief.
Twenty minutes after the marriage cere
mony Veaudemont was dead. His last
words to his wife were: "If you ever
marry in the future, be sure to marry an
honest man, whether be be rich or poor."
The deceased was a native of Belgium,
and bag been in this country some nine
years. He stated before his death that
his family connections were highly re
spectable, and that he was thirty-one
years old. He met the danseuse Aline
Le Favre a few years ago, and they
have been living together ever since.
They have been in Memphis several
months, and have made a great sensation
by bringing out the can-can, an extrava
ganza of French manners and morals.
Veaudemoot's mother and sister have
just arrived in Chicago from France, and
telegraphed for him after he was shot
A dispatch was returned as follows:
"Shot last night; died about an hour
ago." The deceased had received an of
fer in St. Louis, and would probably have
gone there in a few days, He was a man
of fine education and polished manners,
and claimed to be of bigh blood. His
career began on the stage of tbe Imperial
Academy in Paris. He possessed a fine
order of dramatic - talent, but gave
as j a reason for his course that
he could make more money by the can
can than in the higher walks of his pro
fession. Two years ago he was here un
der his real name as a fencing master.
Maggie Cox is a native of Belfast, Ire

It is said that she will now retire from the

THE LOST KEY; OR, " HOT AT HOME."
A Story for Swet Blxteens.
A beautiful young lady in Memphis,
who has juBt appeared in society, and
benn to exercise the prerogative of en
tertaining company in the parlor without
prompting from her mother, was greatly
annoyed last Sunday by a little incident,
whi-.li we will relate for tbe benefit of all
young misses who contemplate an early
debut in "society," whatever that may
mean. ' '
Miss Lqcie, for that isn't ber name,
has the nsual number of parents, namely,
a father and a mother, and a sharp
brother, about three years younger than
herself, who thinks it very funny for
"sis" to be visited by grown men with
beards on their faces. Last Sunday he
accompanied her to church, and after
that they stopped and took dinner at their
ancle Ben's house. In the cool of the
evening they returned to their home, a
quiet place jn tbe suburbs, and found the
doors locked. Their patents had taken
the younger chips of the family and
gone out riding. Being rather tired,
they were anxious to get into the house,
especially after finding that it was locked.
Tbe windows were all fattened from the
inside, except oca on the back porch,
which the hopeful young brother raised,
and they both crawled into tbe sitting
room, from which it was no trouble to
reach all parts of the house, but the front
door could not be opened.
Just as tbey began to feel comfortable
and Tommy proposed to charge the
pantry, they were startled by a loud ring
from tbe door bell. Tommy sprang out
at the back window in a twinkling and
answered the ring in person by going
around the chimney. The servants, it ie
hardly necessary to state, had rigged
themselves np several hours before, ac
cording to tbe latest fashion plates, and
gone out to illustrate the prevailing
Broadway styles. . ,
Two yonng gentlemen, with : high,
broad-brimmed silk hats, red kid gloves,
slender canes, short coats and no pants
to speak of, bair parted in the middle,
and other adornments to match, were at
this door. On Master Tommy'e appear
ance, they both io a breath nttered :
"How d'ye dot Is Miss Loozie at
Tommy was well enough posted to
know that the last question was the one
all important, so he answered that one
"N-no-no, sir; ibe's not at home just
bow gone out riding and and will be
at home pretty soon; won't yon walk in
and stay until she returns T (
The little scamp knew he could not let
them into the house, except through the
window, to save bis life, but he calculated
upon their refusal, which was correct.
They bowed to him with as much form
as if he had been a grown man of conse
quence, and retreated in good order to
their buggy aud soon disappeared. Tom
my reported to headquarters as soon as
possible the way he had managed affairs,
which was entirely satisfactory, though
Miss Laoie was very sorry that she could
not get to see those nice young men. ,
The bouse seemed io lonesome after
this that the yeung couple concluded to
take a walk. Imagine the blushes and
confusion of Miss "Loozie" on emerging
from the front gate to discover the two
nice young men a few rods eff, reluming
from a short turn down the avenue. There
was no dodging them, and they passed on
with a polite, freezing bow, firmly believ
ing thatMiss Lucie had intentionally been
"not at home.". She was greatly morti
fied by the occurrence, bat there was no
help for it, and it was no easy matter to
send an explanation.
This is a picture from the Original in
our possession; and the two young men
in red kids, if they have tbe kids yet, will
readily recognize it.

Many Dersons are in tbs habit of sleep
ing for half an hour or an hour immedi
ately after dinner. Ibis is a bad prac
tice. Ten aiinutei sleep before dioner
is worth more than an Lonr after. It
rests and refreshes, and prepares the
system for vigorous digestion. If sleep
is taken after dinner it should be in the
sitting posture, as tbe horizontal poet
tion is unfavorable to healthful digestion.
Let those who need rest and sleep daring
the day take it before dinner instead of
after, and they will soon find that they
feal better, and that their digestion will
b improved thereby. Herald of
