Political Rejoicing in Sr. Louis.
--The steamboatmen's parade at St. Louis
, Friday night, in honor of the election of D. G. Taylor
, was the most unique ever seen in that city.
About thirty yawis, mounted on wheels, profusely decorated with banners and transparencies, together with a large number of omnibuses, carriages, horsemen, and citizens afoot, were in the procession, and the street densely thronged with enthusiastic spectators.
The Republican and Herald
printing offices, and a great many private dwellings, were brilliantly illuminated, and the display of torches, pyrotechnics and bonfires was very fine.
A salute of 150 guns was fired in the evening.
