TO TIWC KIJITIJK. Silt,—My friend Mr Want/, in very unreasonable, I have been <|iiiet for sonic time, because I did not think him in great danger. Medical men do not always keep sticking their lancets into a dropsical pationt; they give him a chance to mend. I would recommend to his more immediate friends the adoption of a similar course to . that tried by another great man's friends with complete success. During his candidacy for the Presidency of the United States, General Harrison was Burrounded " with the cordon sanilaire of a vigilance committee. No prisoner in Spielberg was ever more cautiously deprived of writing materials. The soot was scraped carefully from the chimney-places. Outposts of expert rifle shooterß rendered it certain death for any goose (who came clad in feathers) to approach within a limited distance of North Bend, and all domestic fowls about the premises were reduced to the condition of Plato's original man. By these precautions the general was saved." If Mr Mautz's friends would faithfully follow out this plan for six months I shall answer for his recovery.—l am, etc., Iconoclast.
Duncdin, June 27. [This correspondence must cease.—Ei>, K.S.I
