THE ARGUMEXTUM AD HostixEst. — The Post is exceedingly in- censed at

some remarks which have appeared in the Times on the sub- ject of the late King. According to its views, nothing but an actual gout and dropsy would suffice to convince the Times of the true cause of George the Fourth's dislike of publicity. " We can readily believe that nothing but the actual infliction upon himself of bodily sufferings similar to those which were the lot of the lamented deceased, could lead the callous-hearted slanderer to appreciate the cause of his seclusion from public view during his latter days."—There seems to be a lurking threat in this announcement. If the editors of the Times should be obliged to retire in a year or two, we think an action would lie.
