ïlie Annttal Charter Election of tura City camo off on Monday, and tho " stati&ticnl" result isgiven u apotbur column. Tho Demócrata went into tlic cóntest ugainst an exultan t, oonfident, and detcr inincil eneuiy, fought tlio batt'.o in tho face of .1 llepublican majoriryïof nt least VI') in tiio City, :ind eamè out of t tuoró tlian !;lf tb-j vlctors, dividing the City offices oqiuilly w'th tho Uepublicans, and tc itiring a clear uiajorHy of llus Cohïk '. The Republicana elect Mayor, Justiceof the Peacc, Marshal ; the Alderman and Ooustablc iu the First Ward, and the two Aldermcn añil Constable in the Fifth Ward. Tho Dorooorats take Recorder, Collector, Street Comiuissioner, two A!dermeu in the Second Werd, Ac Aldermsn and Constable in the Tliird, and the Aldcniian and Constable iu the Fourth. In the Secoud Ward therc was a tic on Constable and it was decided by lot, tho Democratie candidato beiug the wianer. Eaeh party takes one Sipcrvisor. So ïnuvli for the facta. As for specultttors, it is confidently assertcd by thein that the Democrats would Iiave cleeted tlie rest of their ticket liad not the Ropublicana carried too niany guns to start with and seattcred ammnmtion too freely over the field. The Republican candidato for Mayor has long had aspirations in that direction and pretty suecessfully laid h!s coins (coins) before itisDON was designated as his competitor and got a start, liad Hisdon had the sauie eaily start, and the sanie e.drauvjant ambition, we are inclincd to believc that he would havo laid Miller out; and as t was he made a first rate run. The First and Secoud Wards did nobly for both the City and Ward tickets; the Third and Fourth put their Ward tickets through all right, but showed a screw lose on partof the City ticket, which it eertainly cost som ething to loosen.

In Detroit but, 1193 votes wero polled, and Maxxino was beaten in two Wards by an indopendent-antifive-gaüon-Kepublican-Gennan candidate. In this and many other Couuties no DemocratiR tickets were in circulation, nnd tho Demócrata did not genererally vote1 In othor localities Walker was probably run. Had the Demoerats had a candklate in the field he might have been eleoted.
