To the Editor. Sir, —I must confess to feeling nearly crushed beneath the force of “ AntiHumbug’s ” remarks in Thursday’s “ Guardian,” yet I fail to see ajwlogic therein. “Anti-Humbug” wouldTßyvia of the last, I presume, to argue Sr an entire absence of clothing on the ‘ •' hitman form divine,” yet the inference' to be drawn from what he writes would lead one to conclude that because it is customary to wear a certain amount of clothing for decency’s sake, it would be as well to have the whole body enveloped in a huge extinguisher. Whether the man who wishes to retain the privileges which are associated with the Christian Sabbath, or the man who would insert the thin end of the wedge to see a sort of French Sunday introduced, has the prior claim to a “big heart and sound sense,” I leave an intelligent public to decide. —I am, &c., Zaccheus.
