“ Laughing is the high prerogative of mad, and that subline and noble quality which distinguishes
him from the brute creation. Those who cannot laugh gracefully, heartily, and by the hour at a time,
scarcely ought to be ranked among the human species. The sayings of Momus, the writings of Demo.
critus, and the attic works of Joe Miller, should, therefore, be studied in our Universitirs and Tap-
rooms, Palaces and Cottages, Drawing-rooms and Kitchens, not only for health and pleasure, but froin
dne regard to the dignity and honourable distinction of man."--G. A. STEVENS.
