"About Fools." A email but appreciative ap-preciative audience assembled at the ''Liberal Institute" lat reniog to listen to the discourtw of Mr. Charles E. Jones, the Australian orator and humorist, "About Fools." The lecture lec-ture was full of interest and entertainment, entertain-ment, with wit and humor interspersed m quantum sujncientum to make every one satiified with himself, or herself, as well as with the speaker. Mr. Jones handled hi3 subject in a clear and easy manner, speaking in a distinct tone with pleasing modulation and without hesitation. The lecture opened with the practical joke of the gods who, by a shower of rain, proposed to distinguish distin-guish the fools from the people of sense, the wbe ones of the earth, even in those most ancient times, being . supposed sufficiently posted to seek shelter during a dampness. The result of this little maneuvre on the part of the celestial jokers, as perhaps per-haps our readers will remember, was that everybody remained out of doors to dUoover the fools, each being positive posi-tive of his neighbor's demented condition, condi-tion, and all were thoroughly drenched. Touching upon court jesters and the concentration of wit of necessity running run-ning in such channels, in those times, Mr. Jones finally entertained his audience audi-ence with some of the quaint and well seasoned jokes of the "gentle KHa," Charles Lamb, speaking aI.o of his cotemporaries, Coleridge, Wadsworth, Hazlitt, Johnson and others. The lecture watt not only witty and entertaining enter-taining but it also brushed up rusty memories that, no donbt, were quite dormant in many a mind among his hearers. To night Mr. Jones discourses on "Pulpits and Preachers," and wo can assure tboso who will attend that a rich treat await them.
