The eloction in Illinois was for county and municipal ollicers, and only a local interest was taken in tho contest, except in a foiv counties and in the largo eitios. In tho city of Chicago thero was ono of tho most excitiug campaigns iu tho w-hole history of municipal clections. It was a íight betweon honosty on tho one sido, and corruption and rascality on the other, and honesty aehieved a most eignal yictory. The Democrats proper made no nominatious. The Itepublicaus placed in the field a ticket made tip of respectaWe, trustworthy citizena. Arrayed against them were a lot of unpriucipled scalawags, placed in nomination by acombiuation of foreigners, ward bummera and tho riff-raff and offscourings of society in general, not one of the candidatos being a native-born American. This ticket was supported and voted for by all tho bad elements of socioty ; the other by tho oppoaite elementa - the merchauts, businossmen, tax-payers, and honest men of all classes. It was a bitter, determined flght, the very large vote cast - over 57,000- attestiug the interest taken iu it. Tho Itepublican ticket, which was ►mpported by large numbers of Democrats, was elocted by a bandeóme majority, the disreputables were routod horse, foot and dragoous, and Chicago is aavod froni the threatenod danger of a Bccond era of Tweedism.
