PARIS, September 23.
A Government victory at the elections is regarded as certain. The latest returns of elections held yesterday give 102 Republicans, 36 Boulangists, and 17 Tories. There will be numerous second ballots, including those of MM. Floquet, Rochefort, Naquot, and Boulanger himself. The latter's final election is regarded as doubtful. There was great excitement over the elections, but no disorder has yet been reported. MM. Ronvier, Moline, and Thevenct (Ministers) have been elected; also M. Daguerre, a prominent Boulangist. M. Goblet was defeated. (Received September 24,1889, at noon.;
So far the elections have resulted in the return of 217 Republican candidates, while the supporters of other parties have secured 168 scats. There will bo 120 second ballots, and of these it is expected that 98 will be favorable to the Republicans,

PARIS, September 23,
Boulanger has been elected for Montmartre by a majority of 380, but a second ballot will ba necessary as 2,500 voting papers were spoiled, it is alleged, unfairly. Five Boulangists, including Laguerre, and one Republican have been elected outright for Paris. In the remaining instances, including M. Rochefort’s, second ballots will be required. M. Berger, Secretary of the Exhibition, was defeated.
The polling has been heavy. It is probable there will have to be 200 second ballots, and they will be taken on October 6. It is expected those in favor of a revision of the Constitution will defeat the Government by a slight majority.
