588 Old Price's Remains. Genus Homo (Varieties of) (Continuedfrom p. 448.) In following up this subject, it is encouraging to find the groups so strictly natural that, instead of having to seek for them, they force themselves upon our notice in every walk (and in every " walk of life1"). Any one who has access to the voluminous work of Charivarius (Vol. xlvi. just out!) might multiply very tranchant varieties, " as thick as mill-wheels strike." We have been particu¬ larly struck of late with instances in which male and female types are so patent-Xy correlative that they might without impropriety be called, in Baconian phrase, Instan- tiae se-registrantes. We subjoin a few of these parallels:— ADAMID.E. EVID^E. " Ubi tu Cai'us, ibi ego Caia.'' aH.curtinolecturatus. Pro- stratus, imbellis; pilio exili, conico, fastigiato: oculis con- niventibus; voce suffocatiu- scula.
