That He Has Good Kaaaoss For BlBklnc a Contest and Decide, on That Courie-Parnell claim. Conspiracy. KiLKESSr, Deo. 23.-The result of the eleetion held yesterday to fill the seat for North Kilkenny in the House of Commons, made vacant by the death of Mr, Marum, was announced at noon to-day. The polling resulted in a victory for the anti-Far-neltites, their ciiDdidate, Sir John Pope Hennessy, being returned. The vote was, Hannessy, 2,503; Scully, 1,350; majority for Hennesay, 1.148. A revision of the count shows that the vote oast for Hennessy was 3,537, iostaad of 2.502, as first annousced. LITTLE OB NO EXCtTEMKJIT. In spite of the ezoitment caased daring the first week by tbs political struggle which has been taking plaee in this Parliamentary district, and though the actual result of the battle fought between the Parnellites and the anti-Parnellites was practically in doubt up to the hour of noon, there was little .or no excitement in the streets of Kilkenny Ibis morning. Peace and quiet, outwardly at least, seemed to reign on all sides, the streets being tke quietest portions of the cown. Opposite and about the Coutt House a small crowd gathered. Messrs. Parnell, Harrington, Redmund, S.iully, Hennessy and Healy were Inside the Court House at an early hour awaiting with varying emo* tione the actual announcement of the result. Though the Pjrnellites claimed np to the last moment that victory waa hoT. firing over their banners, the defeat of their candidate was virtually admitted long before the close of the polls yesterday. CREDITABLD TO BOTH EIDES. In view of the almost vital importance to both Bides of the exciting political oon-tesc just decided, it is claimed that both parties deserve great credit for the fact that no collision took place between tiie followers, and th-it the last day of the oamjaign, at least, was conspicuous lor the almost entire absence of the personal abuse which has recently been exchanged by broadsides between the followers and the opponents of Mr. Paruell. During the morning, as has been the case since the polls closed, the door of the "counting room" in the Court House was strictly guarded by polios, but there was no at-teutpt to create any disturbance. Shortly belore not.-n Mr. Davitt came out from the Court House and told the Associated Picas currespondcLt that he (the correspondent) could accept it as a fact that Mr. Hennessy's majority would be about 1,200, and that the I'arnellites bad suffered a hopeless, crushing defeat. BCDLLY WILL CONTEST. Mr. Vincent Scully will lodgo � petition proteiting" against the election of Sir John Pope Heunessy on Iho ground of undue influence upon the part uf the priests, particularly relerriog to the priests' action in connection with the illiterate voters of Castle Comer. lu oouueotion with the formal proto-sts to be made by &oully a^aiQet tlie validity of the election of Hennessy it is stated that over 200 votes are challenged by the Parnellites. AN OVATION TO I'AKSELL. Immediately after the sheriff had officially aaoounced the result of the polling, the Parnellites moved in a body to the front of the court house, and then with a cheer they hoisted Parnell on their should-^ ers and gave him what mi^ht be termed a rousicg reception. Parnell was upon the point of making a speech to his followers when Timothy and Maurice Healy appeared among the crowd. The Parnellites resented the so called entiusiou by assuming a menacing attitude and giving vent to various threats whieb imp'ied personal violence to the Healys in case they did not leave the scene. A ItlOT rnEVE.NTED. Finally Parnell in order to prevert what seemed likely to be a disgraceful row, asked the police, who were guarding the Court House, to induce the Uealys to withdraw, ae their presence was causing a disturbance. The police promptly acted upon Paroell's suggestion, and tke Healys were eventually prevailed upon to depart from the scene under police protection. White the Healys were bsing eseoited out uf danger Parnell divei ted the attention of the crowd by resuming his altsmpt to make to make a speech to his followers, saying that bo would not be turned aside fruro his determination to do his duty to JAMESON'S DAIKY PUBLISHED. A Bltur Attack on SUnley for MnklDE BIS AlleKaUons. LoimoN, T)so. 23.-JkMeaon'e dairy will be published to-morrow. Mre. Jameson and the dead man's brother in ft preface to the work, bitterly attack Stanley for making Jameson the seapeguat for all the troubles which occurred, and claiming that they were due to Stanley's own bad judgment and neglect. Tbey altoinggest that Stanley and Bonney are not telling the truth. The cannibal episode as it appears in the diary is substantially iodentleal with the account of it contained in the letter to the Emin committee. Jameson adds to his statement of the facts: ''1 would never have been snob a beast aa to witueaa the act of cannibalism, bnt was anable nntil the last moment to bring myself to believe that it was anything save a ruse to get money out of me." The Two Thieves. Few comedies prodnced during the last decade bare attained such instant popularity as "The Two Thieves." It was first produced in London where it ran for over eighteen consecutive months, and afterwards played in Paris where it ia still enjoying an nnpreeedented snocess.

Senator Hurst, of California, who is suffering from stomach and bowel trouble, continues quite ill, and it will probably be some time before he can resume his duties in the Senate.

An express train on the Delaware and Hudson Railroad collided with a freight train on a siding, owing to the misplacement of a switch near Ballatoo Spa, New York, early Monday morning. The express engine, a baggage ear and four I reight cars were wrecked, but no person was injured. ' The nineteen Italians aceused in the Hennessy murder case at New Orleans pleaded not guilty in the Criminal Courts Monday, and filed a plea in bar on the grounds- first, that the Grand Jury could not have found the indictment in the short time which it did; second; that the allotauient ^f the case was improperly made. Judge Baker oveiruied both motions. Spotted fever, or perhaps meningitis, prevails at Fairfield, Texas. Nearly all the storrfi are closed, and business is almost entirely suspeuded.

It is expected that the action of'the committee in sabstitttting tbe provision for (200,000,000 two per cent, bonds to taks tbe place of the foarth section of tbe cancas bill, whioh provides for the par-chase of silver to replace national bank notes retired, will consolidate the silver forces, and it is liable to resalt In the adoption of a free coinage bill. For the past two days the silver Bepnb-lioana have been divided, some mistrusting and some having oonfidence In their aaat-eru anti-ailver aaaociatea. Tbe ooorae of the committee has opened the eyes of the silver men and aroused them ta aotioo. Senator Stewart introduced a free coinage ameadment in the bills this morning. Speaking on tbe subject be said that tbe bill, as amended, waa designed merely to assist the national banks, and the silver men bad no interest in it. The purchase of the surplus silver held by a pool, was not a matter tbe advocatsa of free coinage were interested in All tbe Republiosn silver men are in an independent frame of asind, and tbe iodi-oationa are that there will be acombinatioo between.thorn and the Deaoerats whoagree with them. The matteragain seems'o have reached a orisis, as the conciliatory disposition on both sides is no longer apparent. Tbe silver men have decided to act. Tbey propose tQ effect a combination, and expect to agree upon a free coinage bill, with which they will displace tbs election bill next week. The issue sscms to have been made by the necessity for the leaders to either yield to tbe silver men outright or else follow tbeir own inclinations and let tbe fight come. On both aides of the finanotal qnettioo tbe time for temporizing is regarded as about at an end.

Y , oorrespoiideiit of tbe New York writes: "rte'an- nuul harvest of poultry for the New York and Boston markets is about over in thia part of tbe State, and it has been a big one. Thousands of lhe,Bneat and fattest turkeys in Ihe land have already found their way from Northern New Y^ork to tbe tables uf people ia tbe larger eit)ea(,> and many more will get there during the iiiom-InK holidaya. . "The business of raising the turkey for market is of comparatively leoent -origio in this region, but it has grown to such an extent that it demanda more thaa.a passing notice. This year the money paid ihe farmers for tnrkeya alone in St. Liwrence county'will amount to over (1()0,060, and if divided pro rata among the iahabitanis would give every man, womaii an'd child over (1 50 each. When the ; cumher of farmera is taken into accbdnt it wbalcl it seen that each would have a saug anna for the poultry raised.
