SPURZHEI3I is dead : his own skull will now stand

on his own table. He will lecture no longer, but be lectured over; and his successor will be able to point out the bump of phrenology at any rate, if there is one. To this complexion we must all come at last As we huve seen SPURZHEIBI turn round the polished ivory of some illustrious unknown, the irreverend idea has often occurred to us, that his turn would come at length. Of course, he has bequeathed his head to his own collection ; and his successor next year, at the Crown and Anchor rooms, will garnish his address with an apostrophe to the mortal remains of the great master's cranium.
