P R E F A C E.

At every period of the world, as far back as history written or traditional enables us to look into past ages, and thence to trace the progress of the human understanding, as sociéty advances, down to our days, we find a popular complaint of the badness of the times, of the corrupt state of public morals and of the frightful prevalence of crime. If we begin at the earliest period and descend through each succeeding century to our own, we find the same lamentation in every age and country. There are always croakers too who on a grand scale cry out;

Aetas parentum pejor avis tulit
Nos nequiores mox daturos

Progeniem vitiosiorem.
