The lower portions of the coiumu luiy, in particular, seem to consider them selves as having a prescriptive right to suf ter froui it. Tne diagnosis of the maladv in the human patient does not point to a catas trophe altogether so abrupt and tragical as in uic i-awne, out it is attended by circum stances quite as sinister. Dirty faces, dirty clothes, dirty houses, dirt all over, are the symptoms which most forcibly arrest alien lion; and yet bad as these are, we know thai theie are worse effects underneath the surface, for where physical dirt goes, there aiw resales moral degradation v e know of no country in Europe wncre mere is so little disposition on the part ol the people, as in ours, to irive them -lvfcs eyen that exhilarating kind of ablu tion wnicn is d -rived Irom bathing.

The tier an individual is in his person, family, house, neighborhood, die more pestilent are the expedients he falls upon for disguising the taste of the abhorred water. In other words, the progress of the disease is natu rally exhibited in the intensity of its symp toms, a man ol sublime cleanliness mav be found drinking pure water; with a little taint of human weakness one may indulge, l:l L... ,1 . unewise, uui ouiy occasionally, and 10 noderation, iu beer, ale, wine, or even stronger brewings; while your true hydro phobist a dingy, vulgar desperado, whom the very children on the street know and detect even when be hapjen.H to be sober xtupifies hiniAelf habitually with the worst lorm ol alcohol.

To say that this would be an infringement of the liberty of the subject is nonsense; for if society has not Uie right to repress a contagious disease by any means in iu power, we might as well lay aside the habits of civilisation at once, and betake ourselvea airain to woods and caves. Peter the Great was the ablest doctor in the world, and it would not be amiss if we were to take a lesson from his school. 1 he grand obstacle in the way of tus project lor civilising Kusoia was the beards of the nobles.

Tiiike onco lived a man whose name was Gudbrand ; and as he possessed a farm in a remote spot 011 Uie declivity of a moun tain, people called him Gudbrand of the Mountain. He lived so happily with his wife, and they ap-eed so well, that she thought every tiling Iter husband did was forme best, and that it could not Lave taeii improved upon. Let him manage anyhow, she always found means to be delighted at what he had done. x ins worthy couple were the owners of a piece of arable laud, and had a hundred dol- ars in their strong box, besides a couple of cows in the stable. One da the wife said to Gudbrand : "I think that we ought to lake one of-the cows to town and sell it, in order that we may have a little pocket- money at our disposal : for we are such in- uusirious pcopie mat we ought to have a l.l . ... lew shillings in our purse as other folks have, particularly as we don't wish to touch Uie hundred dollars in the chest. And reany 1 uon 1 Know wriat we should want with more than one cow, and I ahall be Uie gsiuer by having only one to attend to, in stead ol being botheied with two. ' Gudbrnnd thought this waa all very reas onable and very proper : so he immediately :00k the cow, and went to town to sell it. But it happened that there was nobody in the town mat was willing to purchase the cow. "Never mind," thought Gudbrand; "I'll go home again with my cow ; I have both siable and yoke ready for her, and the way is 110 longer going back than comine : and with this cheering reflection he plodded homewards in the most contented mood. He had not gone far before he met a man with a horse that he wanted to sell. Now Gudbrand thought it were beuer to have horse than a cow, so he made an exchange wun me stranger. When he had srone a little further he met another man who was driving a fut pig be- lore nun, and then Gudbrand thought it would be still better to have a fat pig than a horse, and so ho exclianned with the man. He then went on, and after a while he met a man with a goat. "It is certainly better anyhow to have a goat than a pig," thought Gudbrand, and again he made an exchange wiJi Uie owner of the goat. He now went a good deal further, till he met a man with a sheep, and with him he likewise mode an exchange, on the principle "mat it is al ways better to have a sheep Uien a oat On going further he met a man with a goose, and then Gudbrand eichanged his sheep Bgaiuai me goose. Alter this he went a 1 .'11 1 ivng, long way, nu ne met a man with a cock, and he once more made an exchanee: for he thought, "after all, it is still better to have a cock than a goose." He then walked on and on, till it began to grow late, when feeling very hungry he sold the cock for threepence, with which he bought some thing to eat; "for after all," thus reasoned Gudbrand of the Mountain, "it is better to bring one s self back safe and sound, than to bring home a cock." He Uien sped on Ins way home, till he reached the farm of Ins nearest neighbor, where in he went, juit as Hans the ploughtoy was driving home the cat tli j. W.!I I I J-J r cu : now ma you iare in town r in quired the good folks. Nhy, but 80 90. answered Gudbrand "I can't say much for my luck, neither have 1 much teason to complain."
