This to me is not a very satisfactory explanation, but I have none other to offer in its place, and I therefore merely call attention to this singular similarity of notions. Thus, by the Aquilian law, the man, who not being able to manage a horse that had accidentally taken fright, should happen to ride down his neighbour’s slave, is obliged to compensate the damage.

I think I must be friends with Lamb again, since he has written that magnanimous Letter to Southey, and told him a piece of his mind!—I don’t know what it is that attaches me to H—— so much, except that he and I, whenever we meet, sit in judgment on another set of old friends, and ‘carve them as a dish fit for the Gods.’ There was L—— H——, John Scott, Mrs. The King then ordered his judges if possible to find some just way for its prevention, but they apparently could do nothing save procrastinate the matter for years, for in 1641 Lilburn petitioned the Long Parliament, setting forth that he had repeatedly claimed his right of battle and had produced his champion, but was ever put off by the judges finding some error in the record. Could any contemporary author exhibit such control? Her arrested thought exhibits itself, in the King or sacred books collected by Confucius five hundred years before the Christian era, in nearly the same form as is found in the orthodox opinion of to-day. It was some years ago the fashion to ornament a garden with yew and holly trees, clipped into the artificial shapes of pyramids, and columns, and vases, and obelisks.

CONFIDENCE REPOSED IN THE JUDICIAL DUEL. The symphony in the French opera of Alcyone, which imitated the violence of the winds and the dashing of the waves, in the {427} tempest which was to drown Coix, is much commended by cotemporary writers. This is a noteworthy illustration of the way in which the action of the novel and unexpected—which, as we all allow, has a large _role_ in the excitation of laughter—may be replaced by that of an antagonistic force, namely, habit, which itself appears to secure the hilarious response. To have an event announced from the pulpit, especially with commendation, gives it a prestige that it could attain in no other way. The eye, even of an unskilful spectator, immediately discerns, in some measure, how it is that a certain modification of figure in Statuary, and of brighter and darker colours in Painting, can represent, with so much truth and vivacity, the actions, passions, and behaviour of men, as well as a great variety of other objects. The Guarani of the Rio de la Plata underlies dialects which were current as far north as Florida. There is nothing on record about this case, nor have I been able to obtain any information of his previous history. _ye-pa_, they. Earl Flint has unearthed in Nicaragua. But they must allow, surely, that there is no particular {421} beauty in any part or feature of those two famous statues, which is not at least equalled, if not much excelled, by what is to be found in many living subjects. The main point of this theory, that whenever we enjoy the ludicrous we are consciously realising our superiority to another, will, I think, hardly bear examination. Now in a formless age there is very little hope for the minor poet to do anything worth doing; and when I say minor I mean very good poets indeed: such as filled the Greek anthology and the Elizabethan song-books; even a Herrick; but not merely second-rate poets, for Denham and Waller have quite another importance, occupying points in the development of a major form. Yet we never ascribe any such desire or intention to them, but to the watch-maker, and we know that they are put into motion by a spring, which intends the effect it produces as little as they do. an Atheist or a Member of the Church of England.

I had endeavoured to guide the taste of the English people to the best old English writers; but I had said that English kings did not reign by right divine, and that his present majesty was descended from an elector of Hanover in a right line; and no loyal subject would after this look into Webster or Deckar because I had pointed them out. When awake, we check these rising thoughts, and fancy we have them not. There is nothing that floats a man sooner into the tide of reputation, or oftener passes current for genius, than what might be called _constitutional talent_. It may excite the wonder of ignorance; and {414} in a clown, who had never beheld a american industrialization looking-glass before, I have seen that wonder rise almost to rapture and extasy; but it cannot give the satisfaction of science. Not to like him would be not to love myself or human nature, of which he has given so many interesting specimens: though for the sake of that same human nature, I have no liking to Sir Walter.

It would thus seem to be desirable to inquire how far along the road of philosophic speculation this companionship of the mirthful spirit in her quieter mood is possible. I am sorry the creator of that epigram put his teacher on a log. It is not so with the lighter misfortunes and less affecting situations of comedy: unless it is at least tolerably acted, it is altogether insupportable.

Precisely similar series of circles occur on the Aztec and Maya american industrialization codices, with the same signification. 2ndly.
