L PUNCH. J EXEMPLI GRATIA. The most no-Torious county in England—Dur- ham, which has returned Liberals. 13 Conservatives, 0 ELECTION NURSERY RHYMES. Dizzy the Deep has lost his sheep, And don't know where to find them Let them alone, and they'll come home, Without the M.P. behind them WHICH NOBODY CAN DENY. The Government have been beaten all ovor the country by an overwhelming majority. Reasons for this are as plenty as blackberries. Among them we may mention those of A KEEN POLITICAL OBSERVES.—Because the weather has been' dead against them all along. TKB COUNTRY TORy.-Because that fellow Gladstone is a match for Old Nick himself. THB NORTH-COUNTRY WHOLE-HOGGEB.—Be- cause Beaconsfield has had rope enough. THE METROPOLITAN CONSERVATIVII. -Because your average working man is such an ungrateful 1001. T. THE SUBURBAN SLOGGER.-Because your Jingoes are such a set of blatant idiots. THE UNSUCCESSFUL CANDIDATE.—Because that lying agent didn't half work up the canvass. His AMIABLE BETTER HALF.—Because, as I told him before he began, to please the mob he ought to have gone in as one of those horrid Radicals. „ His SON THE CAPTAIN.-Because the governor ought to have known that it's only cads and attorneys that put up for Parliament. THE MUSIC HALL BARITONE.—Because that new Jingo Chorus was as flat as ditch water. THE RATIONAL TRADESMAN.—Because they didn't come dawn hammer and tongs on those infernal Stores. THE HUMANITARIAN ENTHUSIAST.—Because they kept the country in a fever, threatened everybody, and unsettled everything all over the world. THE IRREPRESSIBLE PATRIOT.—Because they didn't throw a hundred thousand men into Galipot, and pitch the Russian Ambassador into the channel. AN EXULTANT ANTAGONIST.—Because they've outraged all the sound sense and Christian .sentiment of the country. A DISAPPOINTED SUPPORTER.—Because they ve been so shy of trusting themselves to the.National feeling. THE RiasT HON. MR. TADPOLE.—Because they have been monstrously too good. THE RIGHT SON. MR. TAIIER.-Because they ve been awfully too bad. LORD BEACONSFIELD.—Because popular praise is as passing as it is palling. THE NEW SCOTCH PEBBLE. Gladstone. SYNONYMOUS.—The Will of the People-The People's William.. n GULIBLMUS RSDIVIVUS.—William the Conqueror, A.D. 1880. THE SHOUT OF SCOTLAND.—Where are the Con- servatives ? Elcho answers, where ? TRAMPLING ON THE FALLE-i.-The ncwsoovs at the stations are hawking the latest biography of the late-present" Premier as "Benjamin Disreali—just Out!" A TRIMMER.—Country doctor (as they came from chwch): "But now really, between ourselves, Mangles, how did you vote? Rustic: "Well, sir, both Darties they come and axed me, and I says to one says I, yes and I couldn't say no to t'other, so I takes my balot card, goes into the box, shuts my eyes and makes a big- cross, pops it in, and Lor' only knows 'ow I voted!"
