And Evidences of Wildest Enthu- siasm on all Sides. 8 BRILLIANT CRIMSON. It is Senator Gordon. Both booses of the general assembly have jj_by a good majority and on the first ballot. today they meet in joint session to formally announce that result. Yesterday was a day to be remembered in Seldom, if ever, before have there been such scenes. Those m the hall of the house of representatives during the oiciting elec- a will no memorable in the history of the capitol, for it is doubtful if ever such an exciting election will he held Sbose halls. And those about tho lirests and the hotels will be remembered jg .-deuces of enthusiasm seldom seen. Everybody seemed happy. The men who 'oaght General Gordon took their defeat gnn hnmoredly, and in the rejoicing that- fti'awed they were almost as prominent as who had been his warmest supporters. 370rybody with a great re- 11 ing Atlanta was painted a.' glorious T-stm in a manner that, as tho reporters beggars description. Then the general assembly meets in joint lesaion today, the vote will be found to be: 7or house Jot 7, house 7or G, house "For 3, house -vr 2, house In the Senate.

The cheering that greeted the announce- ment of this result was tremendous. All in a heap the galleries were emptied, and there was a rush for tho representative ball. As soon as order could be restored, the sen- ate adjourned. In the House. When tho house was first called to order yesterday morning qnito a lively little discus- sion arose over a motion to reconsider the reso- lution of tbe day before fixing tbe hour of 12 o'clock for the election of a United States sen- ator. The motion was made by Mr. Twitty, of Jackson, and he urged that the election take place at 11 o'clock, for the reason that the senate was to have its election at that hour, and it would be advisable for both houses to act at the same time. Mr. Atkinson, of Coweta, opposed the mo- tion to reconsider, and after speeches by several members in opposition to it, the motion was voted down overwhelmingly, and the house went on with its routine work. Meantime, the galleries and lobbies were fast filling up with great throngs of visitors. By 11 o'clock the noise of conversation that from floor to gallery was so deafening that tbe business of tho house could scarcely pro- ceed. Speaker Howell was kept constantly ham- mering for silence, and it was with much diffi- culty that the clerks managed to pull through their arduous task of reading bills and sub- mitting them to the house for consideration. THE HOUK OF NOON. But when the hour of 12 arrived a solemn spell of quietude settled over the great crowds. The hour of battle was at hand. Speaker Howell stated that the time was come for the house to take up the election of a United States senator. He asked that both members and guests in the house should aid in keeping order while the election, pro- ceeded. Clerk Mark Hardin read tho resolution call- ing the election at 12 o'clock, and then read the law governing the manner of ballotting. It stated tliat no laudatory speech should be used in nominating a candidate, and no disparaging speech would be allowed to be uttered against any candidate. Tbe speaker announced that nominations in order. NOJIINATINO THE SENATORS. Mr. Reid, of Putnam, in a brief speech, nominated General John B. Gordon: Mr. Held said: As a representative of ray people, a large ma- jority of whom are farmers and members of that noble order, tbe Farmers' Alliance and Industrial Union, tind feeling that 1 represent them, I, as a legislator and an jlhancomaii, place In nomina- tion a lain whom these people love, who has been true to every trust bestowed upon liim, and who been nearer than any other to tho class I represent. I place in nomination for senator to represent this noble state of Georgia In the United States congress General John B. Gordon. The nomination, waa received with tumul- tuous applause. It was seconded by Messrs. Clay, Calvin, Smith, of Greene; Swain, Leslie, Oattis, Ryals, Lark, Crawford, Goodwin, Martin, Seay and Payne. Bernor, of Monroe, also seconded the nomination with an eloquent appeal in General Gordon's behalf. Several members rose to a point of order, claiming that Mf. IJerner transgreshed the law in his laudatory sneech, but were hissed by the crowds in the gallery. Mr. Kemp, of "Emanuel, nominated Hon. T. M. Norwood, and Mr. Chapman, of Hancock, Mr. Strickland, of Bryan, and others quickly seconded the nomination followed by great cheering- Through the galleries the cries, "Hurrah for still resounded when Mr. Hartridge, of Chatham, arose and said: "Mr. Speaker: I sincerely trust that I do not in the slightest way insult the good people of Atlanta, when I second the norainatioG of Hon. T. M. Norwood." [Laughter and ap- plause among the anti-Gordon men of the bouse.] Then Mr. Sibley, of Cobb, gained the floor and faaid; "Mr. Speaker: As a representa- tive of the living principles of the new south, I nominate for United States senator from Georgia Hon. Patrick Calhoun." [Applause, with some evidences of disapproval.] The nomination received" many seconds, among whom were Messrs. Baldwin, Bennett, of Wilcox; Cooper, Craigo, Lumsden and others. Mr. Chappell, of Lanrens, nominated, as he said ii the outset, without any laudatory words, Hon. J. K. Hiues, which was seconded by Mr. Hogan, of Lincoln, and others. Hon. N. J. Hammond's name was placed in nomination by Mr. Huff, of Bibb, and it was seconded by Mr. Etheridge and Mr. Phillips. The Election Proceeds. Now for tbe voting.

Mr. Kimbrougb. of Greene, set the house shaking with vibrations of applause as power- ful as an earthquake when he arose and begged to change his vote from Hammond to Gordon. Then" Mr. Norman, of Liberty, changed to Gordon, giving him the majority. The result caused a pandemonium. The and confusion that prevailed were overwhelming. Tbe galleries rocked with thundering applause and there waved to and fro a perfect sea of human forms, handker chiefs and hats. On the floor of the house the scene was equal ty demoralizing. Senators and representatives stood upon iheir desks- and threw their hats high in the air, shouting like triumphant Indians in their war dance. Gordon was the toast, and the name brought shouts OD all sides. A crowd surrounded Speaker Howell and tagged him to change his vote, which he had refused to do so long as it would bear upon the turn of the election. 'Ji-t this juncture, Governor Gordon's elec- tion having been assured by the changes which had been announced, Speaker Howell called Mr. Goodwin, of Fulton, to the chair, and said "Mr. Speaker: I will be frank in the state- ment J will make, for I would not deceive the house nor my constituents. For reasons which I thought satisfactory, I did not vote for Gov- ernor Gordon. Alter the first change had been made, my vote, had It been changed, would have elected him. I would not then change it, and consequently do not deserve nor desire any credit for what I o shall now say for liim. But his election being assured, and be- lieving that in this, as in all other things, it is best to act in unity, and for the sake of har- mony, I now change my vote from Hammond to Gordon, and, were it in order, would with pleasure move to make his election unani- mous." This announcement was greeted with great applause in the house and from the galleries. When order was partially restored Speaker Howell resumed his seat, and the following members changed their votes to Gordon. Matthews of Jefferson, from Hammond, Coffoy from Norwood, Brodnax from Calhoun, Barrett from Norwood, Graves from Womack, Mason from Norwood, Parker of Wilkinson, from Norwood, Cleave from Norwood. This made Gordon's vote 95. The other can- didates have: Norwood, 38; Calhoun, Hines, 10, and Hammond, 7. For a quarter of an hour the din of applause was deafening. Cannons were fired with rapid and thundering succession on. the out- side and the whole city seemed to gather all at once around the statehouse. The house adjourned. Cordon Comes. General Gordon soon appeared in the hall and the applause increased and lasted until he was escorted to the speaker's stand. He spoke as follows If this snail prove the hour of Georgia's tri- umph, it will be mine, otherwise, I should wish to call upon my head tma hour the vengeance of the Almighty, who presides over your destinies. [Ap- plause.] Incratituile of the highest order and of the basest character would mark tho future of any man, who would not consecrate to such a people every Impulse of his heart and every tnrob of Ma bosom. Whatever else has triumphed truth has triumphed, and I predict without any emotion that IB egotistic in its character that withm less than sixty days from this there will not be luund an anti-Gordon allianceman in this state. God blesa you, my countrymen. All that I have, all that I hope to bo IB consecrated to this, and to God, to yourselves and to Georgia. [Great ap- plause.] Mr. Hofce Smith was called for, and spoke with much enthusiasm over the victory of General Gordon. He said that Georgians had honored themselves by honoring Gordon. Senator Colquitt also was called upon, and made a ringing speech, for the day's victory for General Gordon. TALKING OF THE VICTORY. Memorable Scenes at the Artesian Well Ten thousand people were crowded around the artesian well last night a surging sea of humanity. J The flashing lights, fireworks, bonfires, dozens of torchlight processions, waving flaga, banners, inottoed transparencies, the music, and above all, the spirit of the occasion, made it a memorable gathering. Not since the election of a democratic presi- dent has such a scene been witnessed in At- lanta. Rampant. Red hot. "Gordon is elected." Prominent in the crowd were the old ex-con- fedoraies; one-armed, perhaps, waving their empty sleeves or hobbling about on one leg. Gray-haired rnen and boys, and even a num- ber of ladies, were there. Representative citizens from all parts of Georgia, And people of Atlanta, "Gordon is elected." THK 8PBAKINO. The first speaker was Mr. Hoke Smith. His remarks, timely and appropriate, were received with great enthusiasm. Mr. Smith then introduced the next speaker, Representative W. Y. Atkinson, of Coweta, chairman of the state democratic executive committee. The next speaker was Alliance State Lec- turer Beck. He was followed by Representatives G. W. M. Tatum, of Dade, and R, B. Mobley, ol Harris. Both were amongst the strongest supporters of General Gordon in tho legislature. Mr. Tatum was introduced as tho representative of the "homo county of the Raccoons and aroused great enthusiasm. Hon. Martin V. Calvin, of Richmond, spoke next. He was followed by Colonel Pres- cott. General Gordon arrived just at point, and the cheering was tremendous. He was escorted to the front by Governor Northeu and Mr. Smith, and for several sec- onds was kept bowing to the crowd. "My said Governor Northen, as soon as ho could be heard, "I present to you a man brave in war, great in peace, magnani- mous in victory John B. Tbe cheering nas renewed, and lasted again for several seconds. "My said General Gordon, "it is a glorious thought that in all this sea of up- turned faces, no face pictures the heart of one who is not my friend. [Great applause.] No foe faces me tonight. We are all brethren in this triumph of truth. [Applause.) We are all brethren and Georgians all democrats! AH Americans! [Great ap- My cause is your cause, your fate is my fate [applause] and so long as God gives me the ability, every impulse of my heart and every throb of my brain, shall be in the interest of this grand, unrivalled, and glorious people."

A telegram from South Carolina waa 'read by Mr. Smith, congratulating General Gordon upon his election. It was "number of ita kind received yesterday. Hon. Albert Cox was called for next. "We are the he said. The sentence caught the crowd and they were with him afterwards to the close of his address. General Gordon then came to the front again to introduce Rev. Dr. 3. F. Gibson, of Oglethorpo. "Hear my said General Gordon. "He was one of the heroes in this victory. [Applause.] He is my friend, a friend of the farmer, of the alliance, a friend of truth. [Applause.] He laid aside his own business to come here and battle for this cause." [Ap- plause.] Dr. Gibson made a telling speech, at most every sentence punctuated with applause. He interrupted once by Colonel W. B. Rankin, of Gordon, asking from the "Where's "O, poor was the answer, with up- raised hands. Hon. T. Warren Akin was introduced next by General Gordon as "the most gallant ban- tam in Georgia." Mr. Akin captured the crowd with his para- phrase of a nursery rhyme. Tnen the only Judge Newsome, of Lone Rock notoriety, introduced himself before it could be prevented. "I am the representative of the ladies of this fanr he began, and the rest of it was drowned out in the laughter and cheer- ing. Representative E. W. Martin, of Fulton, spoke next. Colonel Thomas Lyons spoke next. Hon. W. J. Smith, of Gwinnett, next. The next speaker was Colonel B. J. Kiker, of Gordon, a one-armed soldier. In the midst of his remarks some one shouted from the crowd: "Wave that empty sleeve, old He responded by waving his stump of an arm, while cheer after cheer went up from the crowd. General P. M. B. Young followed. Mr. J. M. Clay Smith spoke next. Hon. W. R. Rankin, of Gordon, followed.' The crowd had been gradually breaking up and the remnant adjpurned abput o'clock. THE ARTILLERY. At 8 o'clock sharp the Atlanta Artillery took possession of the Broad street bridge, and roll- ing their largest guns on both aides, begun fir- ing up and down the railroad track. The boys were in their new uniforms, and their suits of gray and red made the picture on tho bridge an inspiring one. The firing shook the whole city. Company B, of the Confedrate Veterans, as- sembled at their armory on Decatur street and fired forty rounds of blank cartridges by way of expressing their sentiments, A bonfire on Marietta street, near the post- office, lit the scene. Transparencies bearing- such mottoes as "Long Live John B. Gordon" caught the eye ion every side and played their part in the in- ikpiriiig midnight scenes. Some amusing scenes- were to be found in the confusion of the crowded streets. Now and then a horse would 'gallop by with a huge cow liell dangling from its neck. Buglers would sound the battle call and the old rebels would take off their slouched hats and cheer its familiar greeting. Tlie Procession and the A screeching, howling mob of ISOyoungmen and boys armed with ludicrous transparencies, torchlights, tin horns and lusty lungs, were marching in go-as-you-please fashion up South Broad street at o'clock last evening. They had just cleared the bridge and were en- joying themselves to the utmost when in the dis- tance they spied the Salvation army and bond, ten strong, coming toward them. With an Iroquois war-whoop the leaders marshaled their forces to resist the coming onset. Judging by the first movement they evidently intended crowding the Salvationists off the street, but the firm attitude of the soldiers overawed them and they allowed them to pass. Just as the rear guard of tbe .gang was abreast of the rear-guard of the "army." the former suddenly wheeled and fell in behind "Happy Mary" and who wera last, and the rest followed their leaders like a herd of mulct. A squad ol four boys with torches was detailed to march ahead of the army and light the way for them. In this manner they marched to the corner of Broad and Marietta, where all came to a stop. Here the army was surrounded by the yelling mob. The shouting and singing of the army, the beating of the drum, the yelling of the boys and the boom of the guns, the whole rendered picturesque by the incessant flashing of pyrotechnics and the glare of the torches, conspired to make a aceue that approached nearer to pandemonium than any- thing onr busy city has witnessed for years. Nothing that could be construed as violence was offered the Salvationists. A portion of the procession continued its march down Broad street, while the remainder dispersed to various parts of the city to shout and cele- brate. ROUTINE OF THE HOUSE. The following bills were introduced in the house yesterday: Mr. Davis, of bill to provide for the study of the nature of alcoholic tonics and narcotics, and of their effect upon the human system in connection with the several divisions of physiology and hygiene by pupila of the public schools of this state. Mr. Peeples, of act to prohibit the sale of alcoholic spirituous liquors within three miles of any schoolhouse or church in the state of Georgia, except those within tbe corporate limits ot any city or town, to prescribe a pen- alty, etc. Mr. Martin, of act to incorp or- ate the United States Accident Insurance Company of Atlanta-' Mr. Huff, of bill to make appropriations for the ordinary expenses of the executive judicial and legisla- tive departments of the state government payment of the public debt and the support of public institutions, etc. Mr. Seay. of resolution for the re- lief ot the North and South Street Railroad Company of Rome.

Several bills were read the second time. Mr. Trammoll, of Whitfield, introduced a bill to be entitled an act to further protect the farmers from fraud in the sale of commercial fertilizers, governing the examination qf sam- ples, etc. Senate bill, to be entitled an act to amend section 30, of the code and for other purposes, was read.

Glenn's old bill. Installs as an Editor. From The New York Press. I hear ithat Senator IngallB, of Kansas, holds an offer to come to New York in an editorial ca- pacity on a publication that would bring him into direct competition with George William Curtis. Tbe two men are antagonistic in nearly all their views abput public policy. Their modes of ex- pression are distinctly different, but each has ele- ments of genius which the other does not possess. and there is plenty of room for both in the same general field of literary work. The salary proposed to Senator Ingalla, 1 am told, IB a year. It would be a comparatively larpe salary, because all his time would not be required, and he coifld de- TOW hiioBeif to considerable other literary work. The largest salary for almilar work proposed to an American author was, I believe, a year tendered to Mr. Blalne in 1883, by a wealthy New York Syndicate, which proposed to start an illustrated paper like Harper's "Weekly. There is no expectation that Senator In galls will accept the offer I mention if lie can ho re-elected senator, as his dispatches from Kansas seem to Indicate.
