(Scene.—A Private Lunatic Asylum.)

KEEPER. "Yes, Sir; one of our incurables. Dangerous, you ask? No, not at all. Lately he has been rather rabid, but we keep him in check, as you see. Take Food? Yes, Sir, but sparingly: he has Strange Notions on that point, and no doubt has injured his brain by Eccentric Feeding. Noisy? Oh, very! sometimes makes such a Row that he disturbs all the other Patients. What are his Delusions, you say? Why, he has so many it's hard to remember 'em. Sometimes he fancies he's a General, and sometimes he thinks he's a Nigger; but oftenest he gets it into his head that he's a Newspaper Editor, which is the drollest of all—ha! ha! ha!"

GEN. McC—N. "Ah! indeed! Poor GREELEY! I heartily pity him!"
