DR. THOMÉ'S name is new to us. He is a teacher in what we may call the Upper Grammar School at Cologne. Because he has not published original observations it does not follow that he should be a bad teacher. Rather, indeed, this is a point in his favour; for original observers, unless they be men of wide grasp of mind, or of great experience, are apt to ride special hobbies too far, and to be very unfair and crotchety.
