MORAL
Some Daniel help me to expound this “ Dream,"
And " point a moral” from its insect theme.
Spirits of worldly zeal, and keen unrest,
Ye, of the grasping hand, and turbid breast !
Ye, of old Order weary, and old Good,
Still spurning what ye may for what ye would
Sick of each boon from peaceful toil that springs,
In peaceful kingdoms, under quiet kings-
Fevering with sordid schemes the sleepless brain:
Thirsting for power, and ravenous for gain-
Braving the deep where'er it fiercest roars,

THE EDITOR AND HIS FRIENDS.

[APPENDIX.)

+ New Pages for Hints, Notes, Queries, and Replies, are now opened. And foremost of the intimations from the Editor to his friends must stand the Editor's address, altered from “Islington,” &c., to “ LONDON, 65, Paternoster Row, The Editor of The Family Friend." (See Par. 234, Appendix, Vol. II.) And next must follow a remark to the heartless people who address "head"-less letters to the Editor, seeking favours from him, and taxing him with the costs. Such people, by neglecting to stamp their letters, stamp themselves with the impress of shabbiness, and, despite the Editor's disposition to use even the least of his Friends with courtesy, are often denied the claims granted to those who fulfil the reasonable conditions of Editorial intercommunication. Even worse than the unpaid are the unintelligible--the inconsiderate scribes who cross their letters, and set before the oft-wearied eye a perfect maze of hieroglyphics, appropriately traced by the black compound of acid and gall! They frequently tax our time and energy to a serious extent, and leave us unenlightened even upon their own requirements, after carefully deciphering their obscure epistles. Speaking “Graphiologically" of such correspondents—they have neither the feeling to regard the interests of others, nor the wit to secure their own! We remind our readers that an INDEX to a book is the Key which unlocks its stores: to each of our previous Volumes we have prefixed an elaborate alphabetical analysis of its contents, and Inquirers will do well to refer to the information already given upon any subject, before seeking aid from us. The Appendix to each Volume contains Answers to about four hundred Queries. Many of these Replies cost the Editor much reflection and research; and we offer this fact as a sufficient evidence of our earnest desire to comply with such reasonable requests as are addressed to us in conformity with our rules. Nevertheless, our huge “WASTE BASKET" often goes forth overflowing with the victims of an Editorial Inquisition, and the catacomb to which they are consigned is, to our mind, remarkable for its association with litter-ary revolutions !
