There 0thinir eh in theworld which

the (iermnn philosophy which a, es

possibly have been nide by any but an
Englishman, or even by an Englishman
of any other than Phcridar' time.
Douglas Jerrold'a wittiri-un, "It is bet
ter to be witty and wise than witty and
otherwise," was not only very English,
but very Jerroldy, and few people would
need to be told who said it.

Perhaps the most &tf)ngly marked hu
mor, however, isthtt of our own coun-1
try. It is of "p-ond guago sort a kind
of high-prnj''i;anir too much like us
to belog'loiiny body else. Thackcry'e

purely English, of course, "md diliered
in every way from tliat of his Amerigo
companion, who remarked Hu be had
setii an oyster so large that it "tutik throe I
men to swallow it whole." Kqwaiy'!
Amenctu wss the remark of th. North
.Carolinian, who, in rpenkins-of tl.e ex
treme leanness of his neighbor's hogs,
said "he had to put overcoats on them
to enable them to make a shadow in the

Nobody but an American could have
culled Hhukspcarc a "boss poet," as Ar
temiis Ward did.
Hut the most peculiarly American
form of humor yet developed is tlmt which
has lately becomo so popular among edi
torial paragraph-writer in our Western
Stutcsj. It is index rilmble, and we can
indicate what it U only by giving one or

"A man out in Kansj i said he coul 1

We cannot fail to discover at once the
pureutage of anything of this sort. . I'is
too evidently indigiuous to be uiistukou

There are thousands who know, noth
ing of the blessed influences of a comfort
ablo home, niertly from the want of
thrift or In. in dissipated habits. Youth
wo spent iu frivolous amusements and
demoralizing aastwiatiou, leaving them
at n i sidle age, when the inlellocluol and
the physical ninn should be iu its greatest
vigor, euorva'.od and without one luudi
ble ambition. Friends long since lust,
confidence gone und nothing to look to in
old ago but a Ii. 're toleration iu the com
munity where they shoul t he ornaments.
No home to fly to wheu wearied with th
struggles iiieideut to life ; no wife to choer
them iu their despondency i no children
to iiinu them, aud no virtuous huaehold
to giv et to the joy of life. All ks
blank, and there is no Lope or succor -
eept thut which is given out by th hand
of public or private ehurities. When thai
family of un industrious and sou IU-
zcu gather around a cheerful far of a
