“ Laughing is the higha prerogative of man, and that sublime 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 sayiugs of Momus, the writings of Demo
critus, and the attic works of Joe Milur, should, therefore, be studied in our Universitis and Tap-
rooms, Palaces and Cottages, Drawing-rooms and Kitchens, not only for health and pleasure, but froia
dne regard to the dignity and honourable distinction of man."--G. A. STEEVENS.
