WE cannot let pass the opportunity of joining with the Advocate, in earnestly hoping that Mr. Childs will consent to deliver in Cambridge his lectures on English Ballad Poetry, so that the members of the University and others may hear them. We were almost inclined to be jealous at the good fortune of the people of Baltimore, until we saw that such a feeling would be unreasonable; we remembered that, until last week, no desire to hear Mr. Childs's lectures had been publicly expressed. We do not think that any modesty on our part should keep us from expressing our wishes in the matter, and we are sure that Mr. Childs, whether he consents or refuses, will not, at any rate, find fault with us for our boldness.
