mire dicat, ut vel tenuissima culicis murmurantis strepitu excitaretur. Hæc ægrum et solicitum animum quam ornate, quam vere, quam suaviter depingunt ! ” S. BUTLER.

We now take leave of Dr Butler, having again apologized to our readers for the extreme prolixity of this article, which we have protracted to so great a length, solely for the satisfaction of the gentleman who is the object of it. "Having given a sort of general notice of his former volumes, and pointed out a few of the principal defects in them, we were concerned to find, that Dr Butler accused us of dealing too much in generalities. We thought it therefore but justice to ourselves and the Doctor to make amends, in the present article, by being scrupulously precise and specific. It remains for himself and our readers to judge, whether he has gained any thing by the change. από του έχειν τους ώπας ώς κώνους εις έξυ λήγοντας, from having comical snouts. B. would have conferred a favour upon Entomologists, by settling a question which perplexed some naturalists of antiquity, viz. whether it bę reasonable to suppose a gnat Κατά το στόμάδειν, ή κατά τουρροπύγιον; For our own part, we have not made up our minds on the subject.
