Dy noon yesterday ono-half of tho voto In tho city had been cast, and tho "reform ticket" was so much ahead of tho regular llourbjn ticket that tbo Hourbons n ere dlshoarteno 1 and did not rally. Tboy wero paralyzed, as It were, from tho very first, nnd at midnight they realized tint thev were overwhelmed to tbo tunn of 2 557 majority, although tho JUtixttch, tho Whig, and tho btatc had appealed In ovcry way to tbo worklngmcn to voto tbo straight ticket. It was n regular rovolutlon by men who had stood tbo lash and foolishness of tho Demo cratic party for ton years, and tho result will bo that ltlchmond can bo rockonod as no longer tbo Mecca of Uourboulsm of this poor old commonwealth. Tho Bourbons so gerrymandered this city as to throw tbo Republican voto Into ono word, depriving tbo party of Its lcgltlmato power. With a redisricting of tho city, which may not now bo Impossible, tha Re publican voto may bo Justly distributed. The reform council will bo called upon to elect men to some of tho best pi) lug ofUcos of tho city, and it Is probable tbero will be a great many changes. Tho result of tbe elections jestcrday will convince overvono that tho Bourbon press of this city has Ilttlo Influenco on tbo majority of tho voters of ltlchmond. This press dcclsred that tbo defeat of tho llourbon ticket would mean a Republican victory. On that suggestion tho Republicans voted against tha llourbon ticket. Hut for that many of them would not have voted at all. Lathi. Tho election In this city jestcr day has resulted in tbo overwhelming da feat of tho regular Democratic nominees. Lee (Dcm.) for city sorgcaut was defeated by Smith (Iud.) by a majority of over 2, COO. Tbo board of aldermen stands 0 Dem ocrats and 9 Independents; common coun cil, 9 Democrats and 21 Independents, mak ing an Independent majority of 13 on Joint ballot. Tbe election was a crushing blow to tbo Democracy, and will result In a pretty geucral cnango in mo numerous oui ters lo tbo city, Including tho beads of sev eral Important departments. In Peters burg all tbo general ofllcers on tbe cltlzou's or untl-Rcpubllcan ticket wero oleetcd. I.YNCnilUIlQ ELECTION. Ltnciuiuho, Va., May 23.

MISS rOLSOM'8 YOUTH. A PiUo ltonuty nt Sixteen Her Vint Itomnnco. Miss Fronkle Folsom, tho President's cllliinced, Is tbo daughter of Oscar Folsom, who, up to eight jears ago, was tbo law partner of President Cleveland. Miss Fol som's father was killed In 1875 on Grand Island bv being throwu from a buggy lu a runaway accident. Sho was ut that tttno only 11) cuts of age, aud her first appe ir ance lu public was somo four jears lutcr.

Despite her jouth unl und t st, retiring, und sensitive disposition Miss Folsom went more nud moro lu society, but did not m gleet her studies blio win ablo to puss the regent's examination about this time, und spent two) ears in thu lldiitr il high school lu preparation for tho four j ears' course, which subsequently took lu Wells College, ut Aurora,wlierusho wasgradiiatud last) ear, tbe star in the tines. In thu Ceu tial school Mies Folsom did tint display auy CLEVELAND. brilliancy ot talent, but sbo possessed n re markablo ability to thoroughly Imbibe In struction, retaining what sho learned, nnd understanding It better than somo pupils who seemed moro bright, but whoso attain ments wero moro ephemeral. It was while sho was a student at tho Central school that Miss Folsom's first tomanco occurred. Sho and her mother were devout attendants ot tbo rclltrlous ser vices and prayer meetings of tho North Presbyterian Church. Thcro Frank le, at sbo was known by her friends, became ac quainted with Charles Townscnd, a son of wealthy parents aud a fascinating gallant, who was, however, Impulsive, aprlctous, and changeable, both In society nnd busi ness affairs. Mr. Townscnd had trlod his talents In several fields, but tired ot them rapidly, and seemed never likely to scttlo down permanent! lu any sphere of life. Ho was a newspaper reporter, a clork lu a drug store, an embryo lawjcr.andarallroadclork. Miss Folsom was, as now, a lovely and a lovable girl, and as she was Impressionable tho attentions of Mr. Townscnd wero re ceived with pleasing fervor. The Folsoms resided In an unpretentious brick houso on Niagara street, near Morgan, and thcro her first courtship was held. An engagement soon resulted. Soon afterward young Townscnd concluded to Btudy theology, and, with that object lu view, went to Auburn and attended tho Proshvtcrlan seminary there. A banker's daughter thcro, who possessed tbo same qualities ot heart, mind, and face that Miss Folsom was noted for, becamo ac quainted with him, and tho present hello soon shattered tho absent Idol of tho youth's adoration. Ho finally wroto a letter to Franklo, lu which he told her, with a tlngo of sorrow, that bo be lieved bo could never love her as sho de served to bo loved, that ha thought ho had proved himself unworthy ot her affections. nnd, In short, that shu had best dismiss blm from her mind. This was a trying time for Fran hie, but she promptly wrote back that sho was perfrctlr sitlsileJ, aud was rather glad tobavu htm express his views so iiankl). That was all thcro was of It. This, however, was not thocood fortuno of the Auburn girl to whom Mr. Toivuscnil Iccainu engaged. Ho camo to tho lontluslon that ho was too poor to niairy, und told herso lu a letter which she receive el while making nrrcugemtnts for her bridal clothes. Tho effect on her wis Ihc opposite of what It bad been on Miss Folsom, cud her father, who tool: tbo let ter from her band heforu sho bad recovcre 1 from her fainting spi II, could hardly be re strained from lntllrtlng corporal punish incut on tho man who had trilled with her directions Frankle's first lover Is now the Ilcv.

Tho following aro bis remarks In full: Tho Congress of tho United States Is In great peril. No Guy Fawkcn thrcatons tt from subterranean vault; no foreign cnotny bombards It from without; Its peril Is ono of neglect. Thcro Is a possibility that an Important measure that Involves tho very existence of tho republic will not bo adopted I mean tbo bill for removing tho Illiteracy ot tbo country by national aid to common schools. If tbe gavel of ad journment falls on tbo desk of tha speaker in tho House of Representatives beforo this for a similar bill Is passed, that gavel will strlko between the eyes of our liest national welfare Tbero aro somo facts that need to be hurled at tbo In telligent pcoplo of this country with tho force of a catapult.

Thcro Is a gniwlng Indlllercnce In reg ml to a most alarming state of things In this country. Tnko ono ghastly and ter rific fact, that In this country whero tha people rule, thcro aro 000,000 who can neither read no write, an Incrcaso of 200, COO In ten years.
