The wrong Head.

--James Rybeck, a "notion" vender, in New Orleans, received, with other political medals, some with Lincoln and Hamlin faces on them. His clerk, a German, ignorant of the difference, commenced selling them, when a crowed gathering, he was badly beaten, and Rybeck coming up at the time, came near being lynched. After running several squares, pursued by the people, he sought protection from the police. The Mayor acquitted him on receiving an explanation of the matter.
