MOTHER NHIPTON'5 PROPHECY.
July 13th, 1881
To thl. Edito' of tle, CArl'rlTho N:
Since the advent of the current
year, the minds of the superstitious
have been much exercised over the
predictions of Mother Shipton. The
abnormal heat, the flaming comet,
the Washington tragedy, have all
helped to convince them that the year
I~l is to be one of great disaster, if
not one of general destruction, and
the supernatural wisdom of "Mother
Shipton" is readily confided in by the
credulous. It may therefore not be
out of place to publish the following
extract from the Alhendum of June
lt.h, and set at rest the minds of the
"In a bookling ofsixty-four small
quarto pages called ('Mother Ship
ton iunvestigated," Mr. WV. 11. Iarli
soin t of Museum Street, London, has
brought together all that can be col
lect'd regarding that mythical per
sotnage who goes by thie name of
"lMother Shipton." It seems that for
wo, o' three hundred years or so,
thent has been tloating a mass of more
or less fioolish stuff, which credulous
peoiple call prophecy attributed to
Mother Shipton--and which has
steadily been growing in bulk as a
nmatter ofcourse. This rubbish re
ceived a veryr notable accession when
purpo2rted "s t > be.
tion" published In 1448, and repub.
lished in 1641 by "Mlother Shipton.'l
That such dull doggerel ;,siuld ever
have been taken as serio or accepb
ted as the genuine language of the
17th century, not to mention the 15th
is sufficiently surprising, but the "an
cient prediction" flnished up with an
awful climax :
''The world to an endshallcome,
In eighteen hundred ad eightyone."
This terrifit denunciation has been
exercising the publiAotindi Our read
ers will be relieved 1`i - they learn
that the "ancient pon" was a
hoax, and that on 26th of April
1873, Mr. Chas. Hindley of Brighton,
wrote to the editor of notes and quer
ies and made a clean breast of having
fabricated the whole prophecy.
LEONARD W. SEWELL.
"It is understood here," says the
Charleston News, "that for some time
past Senator Hampton has been col
lecting full data in regard to the burn
ing of Columbia, in order to settle
once for all the responsibility of the
crime upon Sherman in snch a way
that he cannot escape the conviction
of the world; and in view of Sher
man's recent denial, it is presumed
that the publication of the evidence
will be made at an early day."
The following was written in Texas
but it will apply, unhappily, to more
Legislatures than one: "A member
of the late unlamented Legislature
was called to the witness stand in a
civil suit not long. since. He did not
pay much attention to the questions
that were asked him, so the judge
spoke up and said : "Mr. Blank, you
will please pay attention to what you
are saying. Rlememuber you are not
in the Legislature at present."
GoV. WWIrzT.--We had the pleas
nre of meeting the Governor, on Roy
al Street, on Monday, and afterwards
at his office. We were glad to see
him much improved in appearance.
He speaks cheerfully of the future
and intends soon to estallish himself
for the remainder of the summer, at
Abita Springs, in St. Tammany,
where lie is conltiden,. he will so re
gain his health as to be able to re
sume the active exercise of his fune
tions this coming fill. The good
wishes of his fr'iends and fellow-citi
zens generally will doubtless join him
in his hoples.
