Dr. RODERICK MACLEOD in his two last

YELLOW TUBERCLES, and JEMMY JOHNSON

in his last BLUE FUNGUS, present us withsome of the most curious specimens of edi-torial wisdom and simplicity, we have everhad the felicity to observe. JEMMY, whohas correspondents " in the moon," " hasreason to believe that the BOARD OF CURA-

TORS mean to pay no attention to the liberal

recommendation of the Trustees." Now the

Curators have been the pliant servants ofthe Trustees for twenty-six years ; have been

acting under the " terms and conditions,"not of the Trustees, but of Parliament, dur-

ing the above five lustres, and yet Jemmy’s" lunar spies" teach him to believe that theCurators mean to spurn

" the law." More-

over, the man of the MOBRICO-FUGICO, whois a Licentiate of The College of Physicians, asanother instance of his sagacity and candour,tells us, that the title of Licentiate is dis-

graced !The Yellow Man "believes that the of-

ficious interference of the Censors is con-

demned by none more heartily than by theMembers of their own body." Dr. Macleod

is requested in a letter signed " A Friendto the Censors," published in our 165th

Number, to name those Members; and heexcuses himself, we hear, on the plea thatthe letter is anonymous. This shall not

avail him; Dr. ELLIOTSON is its author, whoneither then nor now wishes for conceal-

ment ; in truth, he need not, as he has dis-

charged the duties of his office in a most

praiseworthy manner. The YELLOW MAN

tells us that he is resolved to do his duty, atwhich we marvel, as surely Dr. MACLEODwill consider it to be "an officious inter-

ference !"
