Playing a practical Joke on a Legislature.

A Madison (Wisconsin) paper relates that some wag entered the Assembly chamber the other morning and set the clock ahead about forty minutes. It was the intention to hold a session of about one hour, but as the members entered they glanced at the clock, and instead of taking their seats broke for the depot, leaving the Assembly in a short time without a quorum.
