cially when it was responded to by a judge whose father and grandfather were judges. Toasts are frequently suggested by the fame of individuals. On this occasion the toast of “Celtic wit” was in the original list. It was suggested by the proverbial perspicacity of one of our most popular Judges of the Common Pleas, and he consented to respond to it, and when unforeseen obstacles arose to prevent his presence, that toast was omitted. The only source of serious regret is that all of the toasts were not reached before the ladies retired. The answer to this sole cause of complaint, is, that had the company dined at the hour appointed to dine, there would have been ample time to have finished the programme.

It is noticeable that no Scotchman was selected to respond to a toast. The explanation is complimentary to Scotch modesty. The prominent Scotchmen consulted, concurred in the conclusion, that it would smack rather rankly of egotism in any Scotchman to say all that ought to be said eulogistic of Scotland, and Scotch achievements and virtues.

The within speeches were all made under a brief notice and the ten minute rule.
