THE LION'S HEAD.

Note from Julius Cæsar Junior to the Lion. Dear Leo.-One word through thy magnanimous mouth to the “gallant Surrey.” I have the highest respect possible for all those venerable old gentlemen, Aristotle, Longinus, &c. and believe implicitly every dogma they deliver,-as far as it agrees with my own opinions. I know very well that the latter of these worthy ancients asserts Sappho's famous Ode to be a true touch of the car'eçoxnv; but I wish (with all modesty) to add, that I neither allow the truth of his assertion, nor the cogency of the argument brought to prove it. I take the Ode as I find it, friend Leo, and (without looking through Longinus's spectacles) confess myself unable to see anything whatever imaginative kar' ešoxnv about it. If Surrey either does, or with Longinus's assistance thinks he does, I can only wish him all joy of the discovery. To me it appears the offspring of intense feeling alone, unprompted, by anything which can be decently called “ towering genius." Chacı à son goût, however; this is not the place to determine the question; nor is the determination of it at all necessary to the matter at issue, which is this —whether men or women generally speaking have most imagination. Surrey appears to give up this point by saying that he only contended for the existence of some works of masculine genius by women. This is enough

for me.

Thine, O Leo !

Julius Cæsar, Junior.

Answer to Surrey's query~" How can things be created by intense feeling apart from imaginative faculty ?"—Answer. By no means at all that I know of;—but this does not make the creating imagination necessarily imagination kar's boxny. The Greek is the rub.

J. C. J.

What is your printer about ? base myrtle? base is a vile phrase.” Bare myrtle: nuda, simpler, single.

BOB SHORT.

R. F.'s Stanzas to Betsy are not quite good enough for publication, though we can easily believe that at a winter tea-table they have been considered as “ ingenious.” Poetry made by a gentleman in his tea-cups cannot bear transplanting from that ornamental hot-house of the Muses,—the Album,—to the exposed garden, where only “ hardy annuals” flourish.
