Julius Ccesar ; Did he Cross the Channel? By Rev.

Scott F. Surtees. (J. L. Smith.)—Mr. Suttees must be in the pay of the Great Eastern

Railway Company. He wants to persuade people that the shortest way

to France is by the Eastern Counties and the Rhine. At least he will have it that when Cassar tells us he took the shortest way to Britain, he

meant us to understand that he crossed from the mouth of the Rhine to Cromer. We cannot imagine any one believing this except the directors who established the Harw ich and Rotterdam route, and we question whether even they will not consider the news too good to be true. Mr. Surtees really gives no reasons worth considering.
