No scene ever enacted in the political history of Illinois has appealed to Kehoe and Hickey to changs furnished to the pen of the graphic writer from Haines to Davis, but without suoeess. such an opportunity as the Senatorial Joint balloting to-day. Taking the situation as it appeared this morning no one could discover ' any solution or probable result of the ooming day's struggle. Logan had retired from the ; field, and an able ex-Chief Justloe of ths 8u-' preme Court of Illinois had been, selected to bear the party lance. The party strength was not, however, unanimous ' in . his support. The . Independents had last night resolved to continue. suDDOrtinff The tall form ot Ash ton, of Winnebago, had bowed over Kehoe and earnestly begged him to vote for Davis, but the Senate five, swollen to pompous proportions by the figure they seemed to be cutting in this important strife. looked wisely indifferent, and settled baok for what they believed to be the final ballot.

Meantime, at 9 o'clock this morning ' the Independents having become frightened, met in hasty caucus, and agreed to support Judge David Davis, if the Democrats would. The Democrats by this time had got to gather in caucus, received the proposition, and adopted Davis at once, and adjourned to the house, which was already in session. All was pleasant and joyous as a summer morn, ; Davis was to bb bxbotxd ox tha, btbst " I . BAUiOT.
