"DIGON." [TO THE EDITOR OF THE OBSERVER AND EXPRESS."] SIR,—It is impossible to allow Dig-on" 's letter to pass unnoticed. He is an amusing writer, and the number of questions he asks suggests that an important member of his digestive Qrgans is tainted and has been so for some time. His knowledge is apparently very great, but the fact that he "solicits answers to so many questions leads us to conclude that it is local and of a specialised character. Yet it extends from Religion to "Digging." •? His letter also is a fair specimen of what may be called "mathematical preci sen ess of expression." With a stretch of imagination, a small band can be conceived diligently at work, holding the in- strument in a perfectly mathematical position, and cutting out each figure in black upon white, with geometrical exactness and carefully regulated pressure. Sir, I also heard that excellent sermon to which he refers. It was a well-thought discourse and delivered with great force and effect. It is a great pity that so small a proportion of our city friends enjoys the eloquent and powerful sermons of the youngest if not the ablest of our ministers." It would have been much better if Digon" had called attention to that alone, rather than dabble in matters so intricate, to neither of which does he even suggest a possible solution. But why did he not refer to the sermon preached at night ? It was more scientific and masterly even than the morniag's, and I should say more palatable to Digon," since it was upon a subject that would interest him, judging from his letter. But there-perhaps he was not present; and, therefore, how could he ? We all like digging" at times, and I enjoy a dig" now and again. Nowadays, I;notice a good number of correspondents, with a taste for sar- casm and "digging;" and because they are not in a sound state of health, as I suppose Digon" to be, they attempt to vent their ill-humour on the powers that be" in a fashion partly mystica.1 and partly pietistic. If Digon" has any real cause of complaint, let him attach his own name to the letters. I don't think we should attach much importance to such irresponsible individuals."—I am, &c., NAMELESS.
