SHORT PATENT SEEMON BY VOW, JR I will draw a melancholy discourse, this morning from the following text: " Laugh and grow fat M My hearers?1 have lately thrown my cogit* ating apparatus considerably out of gear iu attempting to make out whether laughter pro duces fat, or a good layer of the adispose pro motes laughter. The conclusion I hare ar rived at is, that laughter is, generally speak ing, the spontaneous production of an oleagin ous soil, and has little or nothing to do toward adding augk\ to its richness It is the natu rally contented mind, my friends, that adds to corporeal fatness; and whon fatness is onco obtained, laughter takes root therein, and branches out and blossoms like sun flowers on the southern side of a pig slye. Take one of jour wo-begone, God forsaken hyposondriacs, the whole of whose self-manufrctured misery seems to have crawled into his countenance, the very cast of whose mildewing eye is enough to rnb all tho polish from a pair of patent leather boots?let him possibly be elec trified into a cacbinating paroxysm, leng and loud, and no more fat will gather upon his ribs than honey dew upon tho sapless rose leaves of an old maid's bonnet. Why ? Be cause the maggot* of melancholy that contin ually prey upon his mind, are not to be frigh tened from their favorite repast by the most startling guffaw that ever shook the quiet realm of cheerfulness. Take, too, ono of your pale, wafer lipped, weasel-vissged skinflint* who indulges in moonshiny smiles at the re motest prospects of a bargain, and who is more redundant with smirks and bows than k disowned California dog is of fleas - move him into fits of audiblo rairthfulness ns often as you may, still he will be as sliui as a shitc poke led upon hair snakes, if he woro to live long enough to bo the grand-dad of all tho little Beelscbubs who may happen to be born somewhero about the middle of the next cen tury. Now, my brethren, behold yondor happy mortal, with a soul wrapped up in a thick blanket of tat?with a knob plump and winn ing "8 a pumpkin in October?whose merry little optics twinkle like twin stars at the summit of Mount Diabolo? whose u fair round belly, with good capon lined," is an object cf envy to all ' walking shadows'' that stalk the earth. All of his ideas swim, like pre served sardines, in the riehest and sweetest of oil; every expressed thought slides out sleek and greasy, and the whole tenor and tone of his voiee are like the inner bark of slippery elm. His mind dwelt in such comfortable winter quarters, that he sever feels happy and cheerful. He feels Goon that laugh ter?not of your coarse, hcrae-fashioned kind, but the fine, short-furred sort?peeps out, ever and anon, from its fat fold, and causes every "varmint" of care to take to his hole, like rats and goblins damned at the morning cock-crow. What, my friend, do you suppose brought this laughter breeding human to the verge of obesity ? It was not laughing either at stage or street forces; nor at the freaks and follies of a ridiculous works, nor at every new-fan gled and odd fashion, that makes organ grinders' monkeys almost grin themselves into convulsions; cor hyena-like at the most ridic ulous of legislative proceedings?nor was it even at such comical preaching as mine. No, it was the genial spirit of contentment that diffused a cheering warmth throughout his whole system?fertilized his heart, and fur nished a good soil from which future sponta neous laughter was to spring, like the dande lion and mushroom, alter a gentle rain and nurturing sun. He never drove pigeon-eyed peace from her domlcil by sweating. fighiing, and swearing for politics, nor wrangle I flesh from his bones in behalf of orthodoxy, univer salism, atheism, nor any of the vulgar isms of the day?nor kept himself as lean as Pha raoh'* lousiest calf by chasing a hammered sixpence from San Diego to the Bay of Kam schatka. By keeping in good fellowship with himself and his stomach?by maintain ing good humor?meddling with no one's busi ness but his own?exercising patience at the fitful blowing of adverse winds, and bound to be happy whither or no?he. at least, ac cumulated ihe adtpoit if not a superabun dance of the "filthy, ' and now mirth inspi ring laughter will jerk itself out in defiance of morbid melancholy, sepulchral ministers, ominous doctors?aye, eveu the devil himself My brethren : I like to see smiling counte nances?faces wearing smiles that warm whilo they glow, instead of shedding a cold phos phore^cent glare, like rotten wood or stinking mackerel at midnight - smiles that reflect tono of the borrowed light of affectation, for design or intrigue. I also love to hear a respectable, mild-drawn, heart-born laugh, when sum moned by an appropriate occasion ; tut as for an inveterate, clownish hiw hawing, horsj eachinating habit, I despise it. am ready to bowl at it. like a dog at a fish-horn blown in his ear Your spasmodic fits of loud langh ter, my friends, instead of gathering un extra coat of fat on your bones, is far more likely to oonsume what little tallow may have been permitted to conglomerate in the region of your ribs. Excessive laughter, my heedless brethren, is moreover not unattended with danger; you might postibly snap one of the "thousand strings," with which the harp of the humnn system is strung?and then where would any more laugh como from? History informs us if my memory doesn't trick me, that Timoleon the younger killed himself with laughter at seeing an ass eat figs So, you see, ho snapped his fiddle-string, and laid down and uied? liko mother jackass' Tako warning my incautious brethren, ar.d keep a taut rein upon your risible propensi ties ; for, in this comical age, far more dan gerous sights beset the inexperienced laugh ing philosophers than a donkey munching over a basket of figs. Some folks, of ticklish, touchwood dispositions, might jeopardise their lives to see you pitch into the II o'clock free lunch, or mark with what ludicrous aviditv our public servants pick up ar.d de vour the [eople's money, liko so many gocr<i at a ocrn crib ! Keep up good chcer, my dear friends, let come what may come; live temperately, that good digestion may wait on appetite ; enden vor, by your own jolly good nature, to make all happy around you, and you will stand a good chance to grow fat?and then laugh laugh your way down the gentle declivity of the tomb. "Die a laughing," for aught I care. So mote it be.

It is not fit that thou shouldst ask him who is the author of an ar ticle, for bis duty requires him to keep such things to himself.

Circum stances may render the performance of either Of them before witnesses necessary, or even highly meritorious But I must say, that or dinarily speaking, the very faintest perception of common decency would teach you to avoid such demonstrations when there ic anybody In sight. Spit away, my boy ! Smell bad; look dirty; be dirty; weaken your health; undermine your strength ; dim your eyes ; unsteady your hand; stupefy your intellect; shorten your life Do all these things, if you choose ; but never say that you had no advice from me to the contrary. Those are the trifling conse quences of your making a filth mill out of your mouth, munching your constitution into that ropy soup, and aquirting it out whoraver you go. ? Lift Illustrated.
