Yesterday was the day appointed
for importait elections inl the great

which revoul the ideals, senltimiIo.ats aid

Ftrength of opposiog Parties. As im

crato her. Tor theissuo is jinled upoln
bor full. Its iimpoIsibl to forsee how
it wil result an1d the utmost wo call
feel assured of, is that it will be close
and well contested.
