To my mind there is nothing in all tl??* world 1 half so beautiful, halt ;*? delightful, or lixlt ?o j loveable as a '? nice girl." I don't mean h 1 pretty girl, or a da-hing girl, or en elegant girl, j hut a '? nice girl"?one of tlioM Ivvelj. p*?d tempered. good-hearted. sweet-faced, amiable. neat, natty, domestic creatures. whom we ineot I in the sphere of " borne," diffusing around the ' domestic hearth the influence of ber goodness. : like the essence of sweet flowers. What we all kno.v by a "nieo girl'' is not the languishing beauty, who dawdler on a sofa and ; talks of the last new novel or the last new opera; or the great giraffe-looking girl who creates an effect by sweeping majestically through a draw ing-room The - nice girl" does not even dance well, or play well, and -he does not know a bit bow to use her eyes or coquette with a fan She never languishes; she is too active for that; she iii not given to novel reading, for she Is always too busy; nnd as to the opera, when she goes there she does not think it necesatfry to show her bare shoulders, but sits generally way back in the box, unheeded and unnoticed. It is not ! in such scenes that we discover the "nice girl.'* | Who is it that risci first in the morning and gets J the breakfast ready before the family coines : down? Who is it that makes papa's toast, and { carrier up mama s tea, and puts buttons on the boys' shirts, and waters the flowers, and feeds the chickens, and makes everything bright and comfortable in the parlor? if the sofa oeauty, 1 or the giraffe, or the elegant creature' By no means. It is the "nice girl."' Her unaided toilet has been performed in the shortest possi ble space of time; yet how charmingly her hair j is done! how simply elegant is her silk dress i and plain white collar' What hearty kisses she ! distributes, unasked, among the members of the family' .She does not present her cheek or her brow, like the "fine girl," but takes the initiative herself and kisses the boys one alter the other with an audible - smack," which says ! aloud. " I love you, ever so much."' If ever I ! r.-iveted anything in my life, it is one of those ( kisse* from that " nice girl.*' She is quite at home in all the domestic duties. She trouble-1 . no one to '? help the Settle;" she has fetched it trom the hob, and replenished t_he teapot, while some one has been thinking about offering his assistance. Breakfast over, she dives down into the kitch en to see about dinner, and all day long she i< ? running up and down stairs, always doing and lighthearte?l. And she never ceases to be ac tive and useful until the day is gone, when she mill polka with the boys, and ting old Songs. ' and play ?.M tunes to her father for h airs to gether. and never tire, fdie i? a perfect tren ure. is the *' nice girl." When illness comes, , if is she that attends with unwearied patience ' the sick chamber. There is no risk no amount of fatigue that she will not undergo; no sacri- j h-*e that .-he will not uiake. .*>he is nil love, all ' devotion. I have often thought it would l?e t happiness to be ill. to be watched by such l-?v- i iug eyes and tended by such titit hands. ? ?ne of the most strongly marked character istics of a " nice girl" is tidiness and simplicity ! of dre-s. She is invariably a-sociatod in my 1 mind with a high frock, a plain collar, and the ! neatest ot neck ribbons, bound with the most . modest little brooch in the world I never knew a ?? nice girl yet who displayed a profu ion of ! ring< ttnd bracelet". or who wore low dre?se-" or a splendid bonnet Nor can i imagine a '? nice ? girl" with curls ; but this may b?> a prejudice, i 1 am quite sure, however. th*t "coaxeis." j or " c-a s," those funny little curl? which it . has been the ftshion to gum upon the cheek with bandoline, are totally inconsistent with the character of a ? nice girl." And if anv i * I one whom I have been disposed to regard a* a ; ??nice girl"* were to appear with her bonnet ! stuck on the back of her head, 1 should cea-e ; to believe in her from that moment. 'J he only 1 degree of latitude which I feel at all disposed ( to allow to iny hr t? utrtf?or should il t?e in j this care l*tlr td?xi '?is kid boot* with brass 1 holes There is a nameless charm about tidy * teet. which I believe the whole world recog nizer' I maintain that a neatly booted foot,' and a well shaped ankle, in conjunction with a * clean white ]ietti<-oat and a tight stoAing. will . nearly make amends for a squint Young met-, | is it not so ' Yes. ynu confess it i? 1 say again, there is nothing in the world half so beautiful half so intrinsically good. as a " nice girl " She is the sweetest flower in ! the path of life. There are others far more s;ately. far more gorgeous; but these we mere- j ly admire as we go by. It is where the daisy 1 grows that we lie down to rest. Inder every Condition, every aspect. I ad- j mire?nay. that is too cold a word-~I love the "nice girl!"' I'uder every condition under j every aspect, save one?that one is the condi- ' tn.n of matrimony. When I bear that one of the - nice girls" of iny acquaintance is about to be married?about to be monopolized by ! isiuie joalous beast with whiskers, and an ugly j sister who is to be bridesmaid. I come over i faint and sick at heart. Where " nice girls"' dwell it "hould be written up, as ou gates of \ choice garden.-. ?? do not pick the dowers."" Oh.

MRAKLV A IIOH.% TOO >11 til. Mr. .T. Stanley Smith, editor of the Auburn | American, gives the following amusing account of his chase by and es?:aj>e from a savage bull, during a recent visit to a farm in the neighbor hood of Auburn, to witness a trial of mowers: That bull was one of them. "He wasmonarch" of all he could eat. chase or gore. Being deeply interested in the apple crop, we wandered out of the field in which the mowing was going on. into friend Shotwell's orchard. Fat and hand some blood cows were lying about, chewing their cuds, and utterly indifferent as to what was go ing on. We wandered on from tree to tree, in the large orchard; and while critically ex amining some very tine looking fruit, were sud denly and rather unpleasantly startled from our train of thought by tne bellowing of Mr. Taurus, whose majesty had been reclining, and of whose august presence we were unaware. He elevated j his tail, made the earth fly with his "awful ! paws," and having thus manifested his hostility, j and given tone, if not color, to his idea that we J were an interloper, made a plunge towards us A moment's view of our antagonist was ju.-t about enough. His eyes flashed fire. He roared like a '?Bull of Bashan." We did not at all fancy tbe style of h?s horns. They were as straight as needles, and about ns sharp. He exhibited unmistakable desire-1 to employ tlieui | *j?t?n u*. Knowing that it was expected of us to report | the test trial going on in another field, we re- | member the prior and pressing interests of our ? friend-, and set upasniart ran. So did Mr.Bull! i We scampered. He scampered. He "madebet-! ter time" than wo could ki bottom out." He 1 glined un us rapidly. Wo could almost feel his i hot breath on the ba?*k of our nek. 11 was neek i or nothing. Kail fence twenty rods oft'. Bull j within five rod* ! Tight race ! No bet.- ! Bull . in high spirits ! tiive up lor a "goucr!" No: .-uch thing! Friendly apple tree, with low branches ! Clutched two of them and lifted our precious body into tbe tree! Taurus arrived , ju.-t as we cleared tbe ground ! ?^ur enemy pawed around the tree, bellowed 1 after the manner of "Boanerges, the Son of Thunder." glared at us, and finally turnc I and wandered oft about the di-tance of three tree-. Thinking ail was right, we slid down vertically, j and "put" l >r the crazy old rail fence. The distance from tree to l ull, and from tree to ; fence, was ju.-t al>"ut an even thing But our a*>ailjiit s;iw the. movement, and at once again the eha-e was a hot one. But. this time wedis t a need the "horned critter." and -caling the , fence, landed in a field of rye atahout tbe same i moment that our pui-uev's born- struck tbe ; top rails ?>t the fence, mid -ent them living Separated by the fence, we read the scoundrel a lecture thut we hoi?e b?* will remember to his : l.i-i nruuenti.

The nearer ; -ido of tbe moon, therefore, is a va-t. expanded 1 protuberance or mountain, seventy-four miles . high ; and any fluid, whether nir or water, would flow downwards from the nearer to the farther side of the moon, where, for aught we know, intelligent living beings may exist. The nearer side of tbe moon cannot be inhabited, at I lea-t by being-' to whose existence air and water ! are essential, a? i* ?he case with all terrestrial animals The late celebrated mathematician, Gouss, , proposed aJ a means of settling the question, whether the moon is inhabited, that a huge monument should he erected on tbe steppc.s of j Liberia, as u signal to tbe inhabitants of tbe , moon, in the hoj>e that they might be induced ; to erect a similar signal to apprise us of their J existence The discovery of Hansel shows that i such an experiment could be attended with no SUCCC.S*. inasmuch as the inhabitants of the moon, il there are any. being on the farther fide, vjuld never see a monument on the earth. If may not be uninteresting to add. that it j has been discovered, within a few years, by j mean- ot long continued, hourly observations with the barometer, that the moon exerts an appreciable influence on the pressure of the at mosphere , and also by mean-of long continued magnetic observation?, that it exerts an influ- | once on tbe declination of the magnetic needle. llu\lou (Jvi'i'iri, ?Jt'h/ I I Fro* Texas.?
