elled to make some morning calls. The prospect of such torture must deter young men from mar-riage; and on this account alone, if for no other reason, it is much tobe desired that the custom be discountenanced. Husbands should besuffered to make their calls by deputy ; or lay figures should be drapediu the costume of dummy husbands, and should be discovered sitting inthe carriage, when the ladies leave their cards. The husband thuswould get the credit of having made the call, and his duty to Societywould be thoroughly discharged. If the people upon whom the call ismade are found at home, the lady on her entrance might explain thather dear Charles has a sudden twinge of tooth-ache, and dare notleave the carriage for fear of the cold air. Some such device as thismust surely be adopted and be sanctioned by Society; or else husbandsmust insist that a proviso be inserted in their deed of marriage settle-ment, exempting them expressly, while they are under wedlock, frommaking morning calls.

Imagine a Scotch gentleman sitting inhis buggy, and playing on his bug-pipe ! Perhaps some foreign writernext may make us think of fleas by a mention of le hoppy cleide. YES, WHY NOT ? Dear Mr. Gladstone, Here is a proposal which I advise you to incorporate withyour Bud
