Scrofula, or King's Evil,
it onestitutional disease, a corruption of the
blood, by which this fluid becomes vitiated,
weak, and poor. Tieing in the circulation, it
pervades the whole body, and may burst out
in disease on any port of it. No organ is free
from its attack. nor is there one which it may
not de,troy. The scrofulous taint is variously
caused by mercurial disease, low living, dis
ordered ,w unhealthy food, impure air, filth
and filthy habits, the depressing NiCCE, and,
above ell, by the venereal infection. What

Its effects commence by deposition from the
blood of corrupt or ulcerous matter, which, in
the lungs, liver, and internal organs, is termed
tubercles; in the glands, swellings; and on

The Country Lassie.
She blossomed in the country,
Where sunny summer fling,
Her rosy arms around the earth,
And brightest blessings brings;
Health was her sole inheritance,
And grace her only dower;
I never dreamed the wild wood
Contained so sweet a flower.
Far distant from the city
And inland from the sea,
My lassie bloomed in goodness,
As pura as pure could be.
She caught her dewy freshness
From hill and mountain bdwer,
I never dreamed the wild wood
Contained so fair a flower.
The rainbow must have lent her
Some of its airy grace;
The wild rose parted with a blush,
That nestled on her face;
The sunbeams got entangled in
The long waves of her hair,
Or she had never grown to be
So modest and so fair.
The early birds hove taught her
Their joyous matin song,
And some of their soft innocence,
She's been with them so long.
And for her now, if need be,
I'd part with wealth and power ;
I never dreamed the wild wood
Contained so sweet a flower.
To my mind, there is nothing in all the
world half so beautiful, half so delightful
or half so lovable as 'a nice girl.' I don't
mean a pretty girl, or a dashing girl, or a n
elegant girl, but 'a nice girl.' one of those
lively, good tempered, good heat Led sweet
faced, amiable, neat, natty, domestic crea
tures whom we !neat .n the spere of Home

What we all know by a nice girl,' is
not the languishing beauty who dawdles
on a sofa and talks of a last new ravel or
the last n 7 opera; or the great giraffe
looking girl, who creates en effect by
sweeping majestically through a drawing
room. The mice girl' does not oven donou
well, or play well, and she, does:not know
is bit how to use her eyes or coquette with
a fan. She never languishes; she is too
active for that; she is not given to novel
reading for she is always too busy.. And
as to the opera, when she goes there she
does not think it necessary to show her
bare shouders, but sets generally away in
the hack part at the box, unheeded and
unnoticed. It is not in such scenes that
we discover the "nice girl." It is at

Her unaided toilet has been performed to
the shortest possible space of time; yet

ply elegant is her silk dress and plain white
collar. What hearty kisses she eistrib
utes unasked, among the members of th e
family. She dose not present her cheek,
or her brow, like the !!fine girl," but takes
the initiative herself, and kisses the boys
one after another, with an audible 'smack'
which says aloud, love you ever so
much.' If I ever covited anything in my
life it is one of those kisses from that 'nice
girl.' She is quite at home in all the do
mystic duties. She troubles no one to
'help the kettle.'
Breakfast over, she dives down into the
kitchen to see about dinner! and all day
long she is running up and down stairs, al
ways doing, and always cheerful and light
hearted. And she never ceases to be ac
tive and nseful until the day is gone, when
she will polka with the boys, and sing old
songs„ and play old tunes to her father for
hours together, and never tire. She is a
perfect treasure, is the 'nice girl.' When
illness comes, it is she that attends with
unwearying patience the sick chamber„—
There is no risk, no amount of fatigue that
she will not undergo; no sacrifice that she
will not make. She is all love, all devo•

dresses, or a splendid bonnet. Nor car.
imagine a 'nice girl' with curls; but this
may be a prejudice.
lam quite sure, however, that .coax•
ers,'—those funny little curls which it has
been the fashion to gum upon the cheek
with bandoline—are totally inconsistent
with the character of a 'nice girl.' And
if any one whom I have been disposed to
regard as a 'nice girt' wore to appear with
her bonnet stuck on the back of her head
I would cease to believe in her from that
moment. The only degree of latitude
which I feel disposed to allow to my beam
ideal—should it be in this case belle ideal
—is kid boots with brass holes. There is
ana melees charm about tidy feet which,
I believe, the whole world recognizes.
I maintain that a neatly booted foot, and
a well shaped aside, in conjunction with
a clean white petticoat, and a tight stock
ing, will nearly make amends for a squint.
Young men is it not so? Yes—you con
fess it.
I say again, there is nothing in the world
hull so beautiful, half so intrinsically good,
as a 'nice girl.' She is the swceteet flow
er in the path of life. There are others
far more stately, far more gorgeous; but
these we merely admire as we go by. it
is whore the daisy grows that we lie down
to rest.
Under every condition, every aspect, I
admire—nay, that is too cold asword—l
love the 'nice gill.' Under every condi
tion, every aspect, save one—that one is
the condition of matritnony. When I
hear that or.e of the 'nice girls' of my ac
quaintance is about to be married--about
to be monopolized by some beast with
whiskers, and on ugly sister to be brides
maid, I become faint and sick at heart.

brance comes over me of the many , nice
girls' whn has thus been torn, ruthlessly
torn from me by spruce, and I am sure we
should get on much better without them.
1 cannot bear to think of a 'nice girl'
getting married. I cannot contemplate
with patience what she is about to become.
What is she about to become? She is
about to become the slave of a man. In
less than a year her figure will be eternally
spoilt. In less than a year she will wear
sloppy dresses and wrappers of a morning.
She will leave ofl garters, and her stock
ings will hang loose. She will lose the
bloom in her cheek, and the merry twin
kle in her eye. She w ill have a baby. I
say I cannot contemplate this spectacle
with patience. I once visited one who
hac: been a 'nice girl,' a year or two alter
her marriage. The figure which she pre
sented shocked me. I could of cried
with vexation; and I am sure if ber hus
band bad come in, I should have kicked
him. I have resolved never to go through
such an ordeal again. When 'nice girl
marries now, I ant done with her forever.
You may wonder why since lam such
an admirer of 'nice girls,' I have never
made one my own--why, in fact, I have
never married one. I hare loved admired,
and adored them too much for that. I
could no more marry a 'nice girl,' than I
could wilfully trample down a bed of flow
ems. I have all my life considered it, and
still do consider it, a crime little short
of sacrilege to marry a 'nice girl.' Who
but a savage would deface a beautiful
sculpture? Who but a wretch would
stand with his book to the fire, and monop.

tempts to marry a 'nice girl,' I say as

was born! We stifle down a rebellious sigh
as we think of our own quiet home, where
cradle cares and cradle joys never intrude;
where no gentle baby breathings ever
freight the air with sweet anxieties, where
no baby's soft murmur of satisfied content
or helpless complaining is ever to break
the unnatural still of childless home, We
look on this mother's baby, and our yearn

' "God doeth all things well!"
What a fine thing it is that each mother
thinks so well of her baby. We cannot
help smiling at this over admiration which
sees no defect in the little sift "bundle of
pink flesh" and white cambric. We listen,
as the pretty lady, duly arrayed in an ele

cel lencies of her new treasure, and we can
sec nothing more beautiful and interesting
titan a smile of perfect content, with which

closes the little face and tiny arms. What
if the mother's eyes were not so enchan

that he is already outside of the United
