A Supposed Master Stroke Kipped in the BudThe taw Doea Not Forbid a Party Name on a TicketAnd Hence the GeniuB Who Protested Has Wasted His Labor in Vain. Some of the sorehead, defeated candidates, or their party, have discovered a large sized mare's nest. They contend that the Democrat ic party have lost their big voto in Ramsey county, because the ticket generally used bore the letters, at the head, "The Regular Dem o cratic Ticket."

MOTHER SHIPTON ECLIPSED. Tlie Destiny of tbe Republic Propbecied a Cenmry Ago. The family of Dr. March, in Albany avenue, Brooklyn, have in their possess ion a remarkable old document, which has been preserved with great care ever since the father of the present head of the family came to reside in that city. Tne paper is a dilapidated bit of parchment containing written verses on both sides, but the ink has become so faded that careful study is required to decipher the words. Around the edges a rude at tempt at binding ha3 resulted in making the parchment more fragmentary than before. Several years ago a copy of the verses was made, which is still in good condition, and i% shown to friends of the family.
