In the elec tion throughout Alabama to-day tharo was no opposition whatever to thq democrat ! ) on the Btato ticket , and very little of a party charac ter in any of the countjr contorts. In conse- nuenca there was no excitement excnp't where f cundidate.8 were- running in cjunUen that trade no nominations , and these were many. Thus thn local insuen of democrats brought out a fair voto. Thu hottest fight was ia Mo bile botwooa the democratic nominees and the independent ticket and in , Birmingham be at tween the democrats nnd n combination be tween the republicans and grconbackers. These two points were tha battle grounds of the state. Not half a dozen republican legis lative candidates were running in the Btjto.
