Patterson, Garrett and Gronaeur can aow fall back on their Federal offices, but what will tbe other nomioees do? . It was the white people's party and not the Democratic patty that did it yesterday. This must not be forgotten. The Ledoeb inaugurated the battle on the color line, which was the only way to redeem Memphis from vile Radical ism. The Bartlett doors remain open for the recalcitrant white men who were " nest-hiding" with the negro party yes terday. The entire vote polled in the city yes. terday was 10,515. The Radicals polled about 3500 votes to the white man's vote of 7000. The men who "bucked" against the press ot Mempnis louna tnemseives tilted sky high by the Bogardus kicker yesterday. Tbe election was conducted in a most orderly manner, thanks to the Bartlett Executive Committee and Chief Athy of the police. B. Lewis, who insulted the white wo men of the South in his vile speeches at uegro meetings, sees tbe hand writing on the wall to duy. When the white Memphian puts his shoulder to tbe wheel, it has to either move or bust, or tkere will be a funeral n tbe family ere long. Memphis is now a free city. We must make her more free in January next by electing white men and anti- Radicals for city offices. In the next election if the white peo ple work aB they did yesterday, one-half of the negro vote can be controlled and cured for the white man's ticket. Half a dozen fights between white men and insolent" negroes took place yester- diy. The Caucasian came out ahead of the African and put a head on him. The next thing to do is to elect a Con servative State ticket, and defeat that foul-mouthed Congressman, B. Lewis. Yesterday sounded his death knell in this district. The grocery store of J. J. Day, on the corner ot acce and walnut streets, was burned at one o'clock this morning. The house and stock of goods were fully insured. The low-down pressure steamer "Civil Rights" will leave the mouth of Wolf river this afternoon. The Radical nom inees and their supporters will embark for Salt river. A telegram has been received from Daniel O'Connell to the effect that he rejoices at tbe white man's victory, that be never was a negro, and that he never wrote a letter to Recorder Winters. Reliable repot ts from Fayette county state that the county has been carried by tbe white man's party and the entire white ticket was elected. Heretofore Fayette has given eight hundred Radical majority. Quite a number of gentlemen who turned up their noses at the Bartlett movement because they were not coo. sultei or invited to take a front seat were howling jolly last night over the success of the ticket ' A little smut machine known as the Federal office-holders' ring, aud another little pocket machine known as the Irish Radical office-seeking ring, found out yesterday that there were white people aronnd. ' Mayor Loagne, although a Radical, suDDorted James Reilly, the Bartlett nominee yesterday. Now that Radical ism has become odious, we presume the Irish Radicals will repent and join the white man's party.

Make an example of the vil lains bow, and it will have a good effect oo future elections. . ! It is olaarly settled in Shelby eoanty that the native Americans, Germans, Irish, Italians, Swiss and other national ities cannot become negroized Radicals, to be manipulated by Lewis, Gronauor, Winters, Shaw, Hunt, Mulvibill, Patter son, Davie, Smith, Eldridge, Garrett A Co. The Irish of "Pinch" covered them selves with glory yesterday. No pocket conld hold them, and no Irish Radical could use them as a stepping-stone into office. The firm of Winters, Davis, Mul vihill & Co. was rebuked by the First ward, and hereafter this Radical firm will have to take a back seat in Memphis politics. . Three thousand negro Radicals are employed in this city by white people, Why should the white man give employ ment to these men who always vote against them? By employing three thousand white men in their places this horde of negroes will have to go to the country and work. The change from negroes to white men would make a dif ference of from five to six thousand votes for the white man's party. BEAD! READ! READ! Latest News of the Election. When the sear and yellow leaf of life shall fall nponthe declining days of the citizens that participated in yesterday's election, may they recall with pleasant memories the'exhibitions of joy and sat isfaction that was manifested. The en. tbuaiasm of yesterday is unparalleled in the history of Memphis, and more espe cially with those who sauntered through our streets smoking a rloea Uoncntt cigar. At Coleman's Havana Cottage, 209 Main street, the only place where such a good cigar for 5 cents can be ob tained, the greatest excitement pre vailed, A huge cannon in front of his bouse sent forth its thundering roar, and as its echoing sounds went booming over the bluffs it told the people not only of the great victory but of Sol Coleman's grand achievement in providing for our smokers so excellent an article as his Rosa Concha cigar.

The Bartlett Earthanabe ShakeB Radicalism. What Ledger Coinmiaeioner Saw Wblle Unking-tbrUrand Boa ad. . Early yesterday morning our Ledger Liner started out to take a purvey of tbe political field. When the' polls opened there was a rush m ade by the white voters, and in a short time several thonsand votes were polled throughout the ctiy. . These early voters were not satisfied with doing this duty. They went to work to elect the Bartlett ticket. Old men and young men entered into the contest hand in hand, and remained at the polls from 9 a.m. antil 4 p.m., when the battle ceaeed and the black cohorts of the enemy wore driven from the field. It waa a revolution, a thing never before seen in a political contest for county offices. Every anti-Radical white man had deter mined to put in his work where it would do the most good, and he did it When our commissioner visited the First ward the greatest enthusiam pre vailed. Recorder Winters had been challenging the votes of old citizens, but he was induced to desist, such a course exciting universal indignation. Fire Chief McFadden, Major Waldran, Owen Dwyer, Phil J. Mallon, Pat Kelly and hundreds of other leading Irishmen, worked like beavers to defeat Irish Rad icalism where it claimed support. They were determined to prove to the world that Andy Davis' pocket did not contain one thousand Irish voters, and that nei ther he, Mulvihill nor Winters could transfer them like cattle to the negroized party. It was a jubilee in the First ward, and continuous cheering rent tbe firmament as red backed tickets flowed into the ballot box by the hundred. The entire Bartlett ticket was carried in th'iB ward by a vote of 850 to 400. It must be recollected that there are 350 negro voters in this ward, which leaves for Davis, Mulvihill and Winters but few Irish votes to pocket. An immense crowd assembled in and about the Greenlaw Opera House build ing, where Sheriff Doyle and Eb Titus, his book-keeper, were receiving the re turns and counting tbe votes. As the returns of each ward came in and were made known a yell rent the air. At a late hour the full returns from the city were received, and when it became known that the Bartlett ticket had swept the city with nearly four thousand ma jority such a shout went up that the Mississippi "trembled underneath her banks to hear the replication of these sounds made in her concave shores." In the Second ward the same enthusi asm prevailed, being carried by a vote of 900 to 100. The Third ward deservt-dly claims to be the banner ward ol the city, it giving a vote for the Bartlett ticket of 1008 to 119, a majority of 880. : Our commissioner visited all the wards and voting precincts, and found the' white men working shoulder to shoulder. The Radical leaders drove furiously from poll to poll and tried to inspire their negro voters with confi dence, bnt in vaiu. They were dis pirited and saw th?y were beaten. The Fifth ward was the only one car ried by Radicalism, and this wus only by a vote, of 677 to 518 After sundown, it teca-Tic clearly ap parent that the Bartlett ticket had swept over the city with a majority of nearly three thousand. The people became wild with excitement. At James Speed's railroad office, corner of Main and Madi son, a small cannon sang notes of victory. An immense crowd surrounded the build ing, and speeches were made by leading citizens. Crowds of excited and jubilant white men surged from Pinch to Fort Pickering and cheered lustily at' the sentiments expressed by tbe speakers. A speaker's stand w,n iropnvised on every street corner here it was a pile of pavement blocks; there a wagon; a another place a barrel; and often on the shoulders of men and from these loca tions the orators denounced Radicalism and complimented the people or. rinsing ! a glorious victory. Later in the evening the tire works lighted np tbe heavens and the revelry and rejoicing increased in intensity. Main street was blockaded and speeches were made everywher. Several thou sand people visited the Lkdcer, Register, Avalanche and Appeal offices by way of testifying their gratitude at the stand made by these journals in favor of tbe white man's ticket. The Lkimikr men feel that they did their duty, and no more. Occasionally during the progress of the campaign, and owing to tbe on- usual exvilemeut and hotneis of the contest, the Ledcer was bitter and tannting, and probably slightly peruana),, but now the fight over and this ia ended. In response to calls from thou sands who surrounded the Ledoee office, speeches were made and cheers awaken ed tbe echoes of our Wall street. Simi lar demonstrations took place in front of the Avalanche, Appeal and Register offices. The people of Memphis seemed fully to appreciate the unselfish and earnest course pursued by the press. We know that the editors of this journal worked parnoatt r!rrl,f nA tinv fnp tr,' I QCCess of the ticket, and that its suc cess is their only reward. As tbe night advauced the excitement j. . . . ... UDtr0Blmue Kw stronger. Old steady citizens acted like boys, nnd cheered lustily, while young men became chil dren and indulged in the most grotesque follies. What was done will never bo written. It wj) a carnival of joy in which ten thousand white people ap peared as celebraiori. Even the orators became excited and gave, expression to the wildest ideas that could evolve from the bnman brain. Everything waa cheered, everybody was cheered except the white Radical leaders, the mention of whose names always brought forth groans and hisses. The native Ameri can and the foreign born citizens covered, themselves with glory yesterday and re deemed Shelby county from infamous Radical rule which small beer politicians and vile derragognes sought to foist upon its people. "It was a famous victory." On another page will be found a tabu lated statement of the vote, which table will be kept standing nntil the full re turns are received from the county.
