Marry at. There is a similar report that they no longer take pleasure in Scott, Dumas, or Robinson Crusoe. If the report is to be believed the only comment to be made upon it is, so much the worse for the boys of this generation, and so much the worse for them, too, when they grow to be men. They are depriving themselves of a great future pleasure, for there are few better ways of continuing to enjoy something of ones youth than to be able to return to what one delighted in, while it lasted, with the same feelings. This repetition of a very old observation is not made with any hope of persuading the boys of to-day to be wise enough to enjoy what is for their good as well as their pleasure. The lad who does not like Marryat, Dumas, Defoe, or Scott of his own free will and mere notion, will not be talked into wisdom, and must be left to his fate. For Marryat ssake, however, it is to be hoped that the story is not true.
