One has a general sort of idea that it certain periods of history it was in greater perfection than at present, though confined, of course, to the court set. Most likely this impression is partly due to the smart dialogue put into the mouths of actors and actresses-bepuffed, [actresses-be puffed] bewigged, bepowdered-but [be powdered-but] at the same time it is extremely probable that the estimation in which a ready tongue was held stimulated the conversa- [conversation- conversational] tional [national] powers.

In modern times the dinaer-table [dinner-table] became an a ea in which men tilted with their tongues, and an appropriate speech or a happy sentiment was not merely rewarded by the applause of the moment, but went the round of clubs and ceffee-houses, [coffee-houses] and conferred fame upon the utterer [uttered] for the rest of the season. Not unfrequently [frequently] it brought still more substantial reward, and many a political appoint- [appointment] ment [men] was conferred, in the good oid [id] days of simecures, [secures] upon the wit who had pleasantly titillated some great man's vanity. And this honour paid to any talk worth listening to is quite intelligible when we consider that our grandfathers dined at five, and sat afterwards round the table till 12. Even the best of port wine cannot always have pre- [prevented] vented the hours from drazging [dragging] somewhat wearily, and a wuest [West] who could make himself amusing must have been very welcome. Thus dining out be ame [me] almost a profes- [profess- profession] sion with certain ready, witty bons [bond] vivants, [viands] and many a wan who now-a-days would find a vent for the humorous thought which was i2 him in contributions to the ight [it] literature which is so cheap and plentiful, sought at that time for payment in kind instead of in cash, by reserving his wit for the dinner tables of the hospitable and the ostentrtious. [ostentatious] Many a famous impromptu has had all the time and thought bestowed open it beforehand which would have sufficed for an article. But to beable [Beale] readily, and without premeditation, to say the right thing, is an enviable gift still, and may be wade a wonderful instrument of conciliation and pacifica- [Pacific- pacification] tion. [ion] The wor-t [or-t] of it is that persons possessing the power of repartee are apt to make a hostile rather than an amicable use of it; and, indeed, most of us covet it rather as a whip to sting with than a feather to tickle. Caustic speeches are sure to draw, and the most amiable people, who would not themselves hurt their friends' feelings on any account, chuckle over them as much as others. herefore therefore] they are continually chronicled, but pretty lack the same pungency, and are passed by as insipid; yet I think there is a fine savour about one or two that 1 remember-that said by George the Fourth to the offizer [office] of marines, for example. It may be familiar to vou, [you] but willrealiy [willingly] bear repetition. ; There was an empty bottle on the table, and the king ioid [void] the servant to 'take marine. A guest sitting near the king whispered in his ear that an officer present belonged to that branch of the service. xeorge [George] the Fourth ascertained his name, and then, addressing him aloud, asked if he knew why an empty hottle [Hotel] was called a marine. your Majesty,' replied the officer. ; ' Because,' said the king, 'ithasdone [Aston] its duty, and is ready to do it again.' . Which was as neata [neat] way of getting out of a rather awkward phrase as one can well imagine. Ladies, however, are the feir [fire] and proper recipients of pretty speeches, and a man them is a sort of poacher. The Duc [Du] de Nivernois [Nervous] made an ingeniows [ingenious] ore to Madame du Barri, who was endeavouring to persuade him 1 withdraw his opposition to some measure she had set her heart on. 'It is of no use, Monsieur le Dae,' [De] she said, 'you are only injuring your influence, for the king has made up his mic', and 1 have myself heard him say that he will never hange.'

Could any but a Frenchman have ever conveyed deter- [determined] uined [lined] resistance in so polite a form There was an ingenious amount of devotion implied in the remark of a love-sick millionaire, when the object of his affections became ecstatic over the beauty of the evening star. 'Oh, do not, do not praise it like that' he cried, 'I cannot get it for you' it is no wonder that Tom Moore was such a general iavourite, [favourite] if he often said such charming little things as he wrote. I tuink [think] the very prettiest, quaintest quip cver [ever] penned is in one ef [of] his love songs. The lover cannot deny that he has paid homage to others before he saw the present object of his affections; in fact, he learned lip- [live] erview review] very early. 'That lcsson [lesson] of sweet and eprapturing [preparing] ore I have never forgot, I'll allow i have had it by rote very often before, Bat never by heart until now.' generally do menege [manage] to say pre'tier things than 'isers [users] can.

When you propose u toast, you cannot spread the butter on it too thickly, unless, indeed, the speech ie Jikely [Likely] to be reported, and then perhaps it is well to use just a little moderation. For, of course, the great difficulty in all pretty speeches is to wrap up the flattery in a neat envelope. It would be easy enough to join in chorus with the courtiers in a burlesque, who assure their ugly monarch that he is a very handsome man, in plain But the person complimented would hardly be pleased by such fulsome flattery, unless he was educated expressly for its reception, as kings used be ia the old days, before newspapers were invented. it is surely a good thing that the custom of composing absurdly exaggerated epitaphs upun [upon] departed worthies has gone out.

An extraordinary difficulty haa [has] arisen ont of the elec- [elect- election] tion [ion] of guardiana [Guardians] for Chester Union. At Wednesiay [Wednesday] moining's [morning's] Board meeting Mr, Shrubsole [Shrub sole] called attention to the fact that five guardians supposed to be elected for city wards were, he contended, paper guardians only, inasmuch as they had been nominated for more than one ward, it having curiously enough been overlooked that, according to the 7th and 8th Victoria, chapter 101, section 21, no person can be elected for more than one ward. If a person ia nominated for two or more wards theclerk [the clerk] has to give him notice, and he has to say for which ward he prefers to stand. The matter was dis- [discussed] cussed, and, Mr Pritchard pointing out that a very delicate legal question was involved, the whole matter was referred to the Local Government Board for solu- [sole- solution] tion.

Mr. Forater's [Forster's] address at the general meeting of the British and Foreign School Society, covered most of the edasational [educational] questions of the day, end dealt with them, it mus' te added, from a siatesmaniike [Tasmania] instead of from 8 Sshool [School] Board point of view. Over-pressare [Over-pressure] acd [and] over-exspenditare [over-expenditure] both reseived [received] due com- [comment] ment, [men] and it was no doubt impossible to say much thas [has] was uovel [novel] on either of those f heads; but the question of free education ie a8 yes io a different position. Jadging [Judging] from various sigus [signs] and tokens, however, its advocates never lose an opportunity, however alight, of bending the present system in that direstion, [digestion] with a view to making it a leading question at no distant futare. [future] Ag usual, thie, [the] a3 Mr. Forster pointed oat, will be a question of ospsnditure. [expenditure] Indeed, peraons [persons] wao [was] have considered the matter even from a financial point of view hava, [have] in general, failed to realise how entirely that view ccoupies [copies] the field of argument. A system of rea educstion [education] would not merely imply she tremendous ineresse [increase] of expsnditure [expenditure] caused by having to replaca [replace] tha [that] abolished fees. The great bocy [boy] of the poorer ratepayers among the middle classes would assurediy [assured] ask why they should pay for the education of those only a little, if at all, leas wealthy, While nobody paid for theirs-why they shouid [should] have to pay for teaching tasir [astir] own children and other people's tco. [to] If their gricvance [grievance] prevailed, ang tha [that] region of free sducation [education] became extended, 38 in all likelikccd [likelihood] and all fairnesa [fines] it aesuredly [assured] would, then the exocnditure [expenditure] would be again increased only- [only] fo create she same gricvancs [grievances] in the class that stood next lowest io paying cower. Mr. Forster pointed to the casa of she Ucited [United] States, where, in mapy [may] paris, [parish] the principle, once admitted, has had practically to result in free education for all, from elementary school to college.
