Scrofula, or King's Evil, 1,5 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 aye: he its origin, it iv hereditary in the con stitution, d , centling freer 'mints to children unto the third and north gen , ,tion ;" indeed, it recurs to be the rod of h im who says, will vh,it the illiquidrre of the fathers upon their children." 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 thelturface, eruptions or sores. This foul cor ruption, which genders in the blood, depresses the energies of life, as that scrofulous constitu tions not only suffer from scrofulous com plaints, but they have fee less power to with stand the attaeks of other diseases conse quently, tenet numbers perish by disorders tthi.th. although no: SOlSlfaidUs in their nature. sans still rendered faro by tale ettnt it the system. !lost of the consumption which de cimates the human family has its origin directly in thin scrofulous contamination; and many destructive diseases of the liver, kidneys, brain, and, indeed, of all the organs, arise from or are aggravated by the same cause.

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. `NICE GIRLS " 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 diffusing around the dons eotic hearth tho influence of het goodness, like the essence of sweet flowers. 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 "Borne." Who is it that rises first in the morning and gets the breakfast ready be. lore the family Coln es down? Who is it that makes papa's toast and carries up ma ma's tea and puts buttons on the boy's shirts, and waters the flowers, and chick. ens, and makes everything bright and com fortable in the parlor 1 Is it the sofa beauty, or the giraffe, or the elegant crea ture ? By no means. It is the 'nice girl.' Her unaided toilet has been performed to the shortest possible space of time; yet how charmingly her hair is done, how aim. 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• Lion, I have often thought that it would be happiness to be ill, to be watched by such loving eyes and tended by such fair hands. One of the most strongly marked char- acteristics of a 'nice girls,' is tidiness and simplicity of dress. She is invariably as sociated in my mind with a high frock, a plain collar; and the neatest of neck rib. bons; bound with the most modest little brooch in the world. I never kneiv a 'nice girl' yet, who displayed a profusion " LIBERTY AND UNION, NOW AND iREYER, ONE AND INSEPARABLE. " HUNTINGDON, PA., WEWASPAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1859 of rings and bracelets, or who wore low 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. Where 'nice 'girls' dwell it should he written up as on gates of choice gardens 'Do not pick the flowers!' Oh it is hor rid, horrid, to see I hnt spruce go ntleman come in and take her away inn a corner for the: rest of the evening. I _nosy not waltz with her now; I may not catch her at blind nine's boa, I tinny not sit by her and turn over the leaves an she singe 'Auld Rabbits Gray,' even though it were Christmas time, I may not any more kiss her under the mistletoe; I may not even look at her! There is that horrid, spruce man with whiskers, glowering at tne as if he would eat me. I sigh as the remem. 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. olize all the heat? To the man who at tempts to marry a 'nice girl,' I say as Diogeies to Alexander, 'Get ,he out of my sun!' Marry a .nice girl !' Never ! I know what it would be. No mere is a hero to bis valet de chambre, and no husband, am sure, is a fire fellow in his wife's eyes after she has mended his socks. On the other hand, I am certair. there must be hor. rid disenchantment about a skimp flannel petticoat and a cotten night cap with .frills„ No; let the mice girls' alone. Let her be the life and sunshine of 'Home' for ever. Let as many hearts pint) away and die with the rest. But change not Miss into Mrs. I rob not her of her girlishness and simplicity ; pollute not the gushing fountain of her love, utch flooa for all and fall like-dew upol the world. Let her be a 'nice girrforeir; for such as she never grow old. or lose ,e power to charm If yon must marry, may the oetuty---the clever girl--•the dashinsirl•-•anr kind of girl you like, but leaveie, oh leave me, the 'nice girl. For hetake, I will five a bachelor to the end or v days; and when I die, desire nothing beer than to have such a one to watch ovame and close my eyes. A Chapter on abies.

Indeed.

Oar district has ever been elebrated for its choice flowers and elegat boquets. Several gentlemen have proved that our blackberries and pears are ikely to be. come as renowned as our tme-honored pippin, and now we may ad with truth, that our babies are as "plant) as blackber ries," and quite as worthy ofnotice. We have large babies and sinallbabies; light', babies and dark babies; qukt babies and noisy babies; boy babies ant girl babies— all soils of babies, except ugly babies and cross babies—fortunately all our babies are good and handsome! A 3 We poor childless wives meekly go from house to house, we learn that each new baby that is presented for our inspec tion is heavier, prettier, more forward and more excellent than any other mother's baby. '',firs Slouch's baby is a nice lit tle creature, but so small !" ''Mrs Slim's baby is a cunning farm , but what a head! li't'he Tumble Bug's babies are always ri,int,r. and tho nem- o3d heft ench. tams (not starry) eye's." Mrs Plindoes baby is a darling little girt; but did you sae NO nose?" Whearas this baby—that is, the we are holding in our awkward, un accustomed arms—is just the dearest, love liest, cunningest little creature that ever 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 , ing becomes a prayer of faith to know that ' "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 gant dishabille, recounts the peculiar ex cel lencies of her new treasure, and we can sec nothing more beautiful and interesting titan a smile of perfect content, with which as the nurse ham's out the baby, the con valescent turns back the blanket, and dis closes the little face and tiny arms. What if the mother's eyes were not so enchan ted; what would become of all the unlace , ly babies? What would be the fate of those unsightly little monsters that are born in this troublesome world? It is a delightful weakness, this Inordinate affection—see will not degrade it by the name of instinct, but allow it the noble one of affestionate juegement. The generalty of mankind may take comfort in the thought that, however unloved and unappreciated they ma!' have been' each one, was for time, at least, and to one person, the most attrac tive, the most interesting and the most im portant of the human nee. Beautiful manifestation of a glorious nature is this instinct of maternal love! From the high est to the lowest order of creation fervent ly may we bless God for such a transcen• dant gift. No elevation of rank, no deg redation of sin, can extinguish the spark, and though it be perverted or exaggera ted, still there is ever in its partiality, ra tience, self.denial and self-forgetfulness, a holy beauty that must compel respect. have heardof cWI things; but never anything cooler than the following.

Ossawatamie Brown Was a soldier in the war of 1812, a. fought at Plattsbc rg. It is understood that U.S. Attorney Ould of Washington, and other federal officers, were here yesterday; and it is supposed they mime hither for the purpose of arra+. ting Fred Douglas, for his alleged par ticipation in the organized scheme against the Slaveholding States of which the Bar pet's Ferry insurrection was but, one of the appointed results. Such being the prevailing impression, we have taken a little pains to inquire whether Fred is like ly to be caught; or whether lie has placed hitnself beyond the jurisdiction of the offi cers supposed to be in quest of him. We are told that he is 4, .infe;" or to other words, that he is already outside of the United States. Tilts information may be true and it may not be. But it in likely to be tru e since it is so easy a matter to go from Rochester to Canada, either by Buffalo or Niagara, or by other routes. However, we do not pretend to be accurately posted, and we would not have the U. S. rely upon our information so implicitly as to modify their operation in the least. A " Noble Animal " for Sale. A man in Wisconsin has a horse which he wishes to sell. It the animal actually possesses all the deiiirable qualities set forth in the owner's advertiser - haat, he must be worth more than King Richard olleled for a horse on a trying occasion, here is an extract from the advertisement: Thou canst trust thy labor to hum, be• cause his strength is great. Thou mist bind him with his band in the furrow ; se will harrow the valleys after thee. His strength is terrible in which he re joiceth. The glory of his nostrils is his pride; his neck is clothed with thunder. He paweth in the valley, and wax"th proud in his speed. He mocketh at fear. neither turneth he his bath from the hobgoblins, Le, now he moveth, his tail like it cedar; His bones are like strong pieces of brass, yea, like tiers at iron. Ile euteth greee like an ox, behold he drusketh up a river sad.truetvih that he can draw up Jordan in his mouth. Who can open tho door of his face ? yet thou canst approach hull with a bridel. His teeth are terrible 'round al.out. I will not conceal his parts, nor his power, nor his comely portions. "He is gentle. he hie kind, And his tail sticks out behind." And I want to sell him for something I can pay my debts wills. A Fine Party•— People poured in. The room began to swarm.

Herr Driesbach, the famous lion tamer, was at a hotel; and one night, a powerful and savage drunken man was terrifying every person in the bar-room.
