LEATHERLUNGS THE “LEG.”

BY THE EDITOR.

CHAP. III.-“ SAYINGS AND DOINGS."

“There is a tide in the affairs of men."

SHAKSPEARE.

I ventured to bint to my friend Leatherlungs, as a commentary on the close of the information contained in the last chapter, that if he would eschew episode, and favour me with his personal confessions, his conversation would interest me infinitely more. He promised to act on the hint, but it will be seen he was very prone to lapse into details involving the doings of his cotemporaries. I learned from him that he began business in the fishmongery line, from which he retired, to become a fisher of men. Good a thing as he has contrived to make of the latter profession, his former line must have been tolerably profitable. As everybody may not be conversant with the compound interest of turbot, salmon, smelts, soles, and the finny family generally, an idea of the system may not be without instruction. I take my fishmonger, and duly install

him in a first-rate house in the parish of St. James's. His bills are settled, say once in three years. During the London season you set him down as doing a handsome stroke of business. That's the ruinous portion of the

year to him. If my Lord A—'s weekly account is returned at half-a-dozen turbot, the odds are he has had three; if he's entered for a couple of Severn salmon, he has had one, depend upon it: ten dozen of smelts in the book cost a delivery of half the quantity, and though lobsters for sauce are miscellaneous enough, there must have been some lobsters supplied, or there could not conveniently have been any lobster-sauce. But out of the season fish do go off swimmingly. Every morning the fashionable caterer duly consults the arrivals in the Morning Post. He reads :—"The Duke of AM, at his mansion in St. James's Square: his grace departed a few hours after his arrival for the continent.Ah!" he soliloquizes, “ a little early dinner before he started, a chop and a slice of Hampshire salmon-say two pounds

-five shillings a pound-Hampshire salmon never less than five shillings a pound : Jim, enter ten shillings to the Duke of A-for salmon."

“The Marquis of B— in Cleveland Row for a few days." He'll have a lobster sallad every day, at least be ought this hot autumn weather-and trout-he is fond of trout for breakfast. We'll call it four pair of lobsters, and a couple of brace
