The leading article in Saturday eve
ning's Akgcs supget'ts that its editor does
not know a man from a molecule. The
Akgus should stick to its hot toma'.es a
subject that fully taxes its abilities.
Thai's pretty deep, but it must have
referecce to an allusion to the editor of
the Union, which that paper very natur.
ally recards as ' the 'eading article in the
paper of the day containing it. In such
an event Tite Arc cs' display of ignor
ance as to the differ -rice between a man
and a molecule ought to be quite par
donable, and the si bject would not be
taking The A rocs 83 far away from tbe
tomalley, as Worcester defines, it after all.
Nevertheless, The Argus owes an apol
ogy to the public for making a leader out
of so trifling a subject as the editor of the
Union or the molecule or the lobster's
liver, whichever distinction is most pleas
ing to him. The error in judgement will
not be repeated.
