Scrofula, or King's Evil, ix a constitutional disease, a corruption of the blood, by which this fluid becomes vitiated, weak, and poor. Being in tho circulation, it pervades the whole body, and may burst out in disease on any part of it. No organ is free from its attacks, nor is there one which it may not destroy. The scrofulous taint is variously caused by mercurial disease, low living, dis ordered or unhealthy food, impure air, filth and filthy habits, the depressing vices, and, above all, by the venereal infection. What ever be its origin, it is hereditary in the con stitution, descending " from parents to children unto the third and fourth generation ;" indeed, it seems to bo the rod of Him who says, "I will visit the iniquities of the fathers upon their children." Its effects commence by deposition from the Mood of corrupt or ulcerous meteor, which, in the lunge, liver, and intomal organs, is termed tubercles; in the glands, swellings; and on the surface, eruptions or sores. This foul cor ruption, which genders in the blood, depresees the enemies of life, so that scrofulous constitu tions not only suffer from scrofulous com plaints, best they have for less power to with ‘itand the attacks of citlo`r colles quently, vast numbers pell.4lt by oi.ordery cohick, although not scrofulous in th , :! , nature, era stilt rendered fatal by this taint in tho system. Mast of the consumption which de. ohnetos the human family has its origin directly in this scrofulous contamination; and many destructive diseases of the liver, kidneys, brain, and, indeed, of all the organs, arise from or aro aggsavated by the same cause. Our quarter of all our people are scrofulous; their persons are invaded by this lurking in fection, and their health is undermined by it. To cleanse it from the system we must renovate the blood by an alterative mcslicine, and in. vigorato it by healthy food and exercise. bush a inediutno we supply in AYER'S Compound Extract of Sarsaparilla, tho most effectual remedy which the medical skill of our times can devise for this every where prevailing and fatal malady. It is com bined from the most active remedials that have been discovered for the expurgation of this foul disorder from the blood, and the rescue of the system from its destructive consequences.

The vernal rains were falling fast, AsArough a little village passed A youth who bore a hickory pole, And oaen.nnder his control, Pike's Peak. Ills brow was glad ; his oyes were bright, Nor to the left, nor to the right, He turned, but onward kept his steady course Ani shouted tea his voice was hoarse, Pike's Peak, lle left his happy home by night, And toward the west he took his flight, Above the moon in beauty shout, And from his lips escaped a groan, Pike's Peak, "You'd better stay," sow) old men said, "You'll surely loose your wits or head; The stormy prairie's long and wide," But luud that headstrong youth replied, Pike's Peak, "Beware of swindlers, cheats and thieves, Beware of those who would deceive." This was the old men's last advice, To whom the youth said in a trice, Pike's Peak. At length the barren plains he reached, Ilis bread most gone; his form well bleach'd; But still be groaned that fervent prayer, Which did not go far through the air, Pike's Peak. A traveler by the Platte was found, Flat as a pancake on the ground, Still clinging to his hickory pole, And on the ground could scsreely Pike's Peak, There by the diggings, cold and gray, Lifeless and pennyless he lay, And could ho speak, you'd hear him say, Humbug.. ic p iuing J t utui c. TERRIBLE ADVENTURE N The Courier de l'Europa tells the fol lowing, which took place some thort time since, on the occasion id - the dist ascent of that celebrated and lucky toronaut, Mons. Godard : Monsieur Godard took with him on that day is his compagnon de voyage a wealthy private gentleman, who paid 1000 francs for the privilege of sharing in the perils of the expedition. • The *milker could not have been more propitious and the balloon shot up rapidly to a considerable altitude. 'What effect does tint produce upon you ?' asked M. Godard, of his compan ion. ‘Nothir,g !' said the other, laconically. 'My compliments to you.' said Mons Godard. 'You are the first whom I have over seen nrrivu at such an altitude with. out betraying some einotion. • 'Keep on mounting,' said the traveller, with a gravity supreme. M. Godard threw over some ballast. and the balloon ascended some 500 feet higher. 'And now, added M. Godard, 'does your heath beat ?' 'Nothing yet !' replied his companion, with an air which approached closely to impatience. _ . 4 Tho devil,' exclaimed NI. Godard; 'you have really, my dear sir, the most perfect qualification to bo an aeronaut.' The balloon still ascended; when 1000 foot higher, M. Godard interrogated a third time his companion. .And now ?' 'Nothing, nothing; not the shadow of a fear whatever!' answered the traveller, wilt a tone positively discontented, and like a man who had experienced a profound de. ceptiou. 'Goodness sun !so much 'he worse then' said the aeronaut smiling : but I must re- nounce all hopes of making you afraid.— The balloon is high enought We are go ing to descend.' 'l'o descend ?' Certainly; there would be great danger in going higher.' , That does rot make the slightest difler- Lne to me; I do not choose to descend.' • You what'' 'I ray I wish to ascend higher; keep on mounting. I have given 1000 francs to experience some emotion , I must do so, and I will not descend before I have felt some emotion.' M. Godard commenced to laugh ; he be lieved at once that it was a joke. 'Will you ascend, once morel' demand ed the traveler, seizing hint by the throat and shaking Lint with violence; 'when shall I feel some emotion ?' M. Godard relates that at this moment he telt him i self lost. A sudden and arm:- ful revelation broke upon him in regarding the strangely dilated eyes of his compag non sic voyage; he had to do with a mad man' cg LIBERTY AND UNION, NOW AND FOREVER, ONE AND INSEPARABLE. " If the unfortunate aeronaut had had any oefensive weapon he would, after all, have been capable of defending himself; but it is not usual for people to furnish themselves with pistols for a voynce in a balloon, and certainly one would not dream of meeting with a warlike encounter in the stars The earth was 5000 feet beneath—most horrible depth f—and the least movement of the now furious madman might cause the car to capsize, 'Alt ! eh i you are mocking me, my fel low,' continued the madman, without loos ening his grip. ! you think to rob me of 1000 firms as well as. my emotion. Very well, be quiet. It's my turn to laugh. It's you now who are going to cut a caper.' The madman was possessed of prodigi. oils muscular force. hi. Godard did not even attempt to de. fend himself. 'What do you .vish from mo?' asked he, with a calm tone and sub- , Simply to amuse myself in seeing you turn a somersault,' answered the madman, with a ferocious smile. 'But first (the madman appeared to be think 'himself) I hare my idea; I wish to ace if I can't find some emotion up there. I must put myself astride on the semi cir cle.' The madman indicated with his finger the upper part of the balloon. Ju tin s peaking he commenced to elimb along the cords which held the car attached to the balloon. hi. Godard, who had not before trembled for himself was forced to do so now for the . madman. 'But miseraile man, you are going to kill yourself. You will be seized with ver tigo.' 'No remarks,' hissed the madman, seiz ing him agate by the collar, or.l will at once pitch you into the abyss.' 'At least,' observed M. Godard, 'allow tee to put this cord round your body, so, that you may remain attached to the bailoon.' 'Be it so.' said the madman, who appear ed to comprehend the utility of the pre coution. This done, furnished with his nerd of safety the madman commenced to climb among the ropes with the agility of a squir rel. He reached the balloon, and placed himself astride the semi -circle, as ho bud saki. Once there, he ren: the air with a shout of triumph, and drew his huife from Lls pocket. 'What are you going to do ?' asked hi. G:litrJ, who feared he ;night have the idea of ripping open the balloon. 'To make me s s lf comfortable forthwith.' Uttering these words the madman cut slowly the cold of safety which NI. Godard had attached to his body. With s single pull of wind to shake' the balloon, the mis erable creature must roll over into the a• byes. !And now,' yelled forth the madman, brandishing his knife, !we are going to laugh, Ah, robber, you thought to' make me descend ! Very well, It is you who are going to tumble down, in a moment, and quicker than that !' Godard had no , time to make a movement or put in a single word. Before ho was able to divine the infernal inten. Lion of the madman, tho latter, still astride of the sentt-circle, ho cut—oh horror—four of the cordage which suspended the car to the balloon. The car inclines horribly— •it only holds by two 'A word, a single word r cried M. God. ard. 'No, no pardon, r vociferated the mad. man, , I do not ask for pardon, on the contra ry—' , What 'is it you wish, then ?' said the niadman, astonished. 'At this moment, now,' continued the aeronaut hurriedly, 'we are at a height of 5000 feet.' 'Stop,' said the madman, 'that will bo charming to tumble down trout atoll a height.' •It is still too low,' added M. Godard. 'How so ?' asked the madman, stups• fled. 'Yes,' said M. Godard; , my expetience as an aeronaut has taught me that death is not certain to ensue from a fall from this elevation. Tumble or no tumble, I mast prefer to fall from such a height as to be killed outright, rather than to risk only be ing lamed—have the charity to precipitate me from a height of 9000 feet only.' ! that'll do !' said the madman, whom the mention of a more horrible fall charmed amazingly. M. Godard follows heroically his pur pose, and throws over an enormous quaint ,ty of ballast, The balloon makes a power ' fur bound, and mounts 500 feet in a few seconds. Only—and while he surveys I this operation tvith a menacing air, the HUNTINGDON, PA., WEDNESDAY, MAY 4, 1859. aeronaut thinks to accomplish another in a sense quite contrary. The quick eye of M. Godard had remar ked that among the cords spared by the madman, figures the one leading to the valve. His plan is taken, Ile draws the cord, it opens the valve fixed in the upper part of the balloon for the purpose of al lowing any excess of the hydrogen gas to escape, and the result which - he hoped for was not long in making itself apparent. Little by little the madman becomes drowsy, asphyxiated, and insensible by the vapors of the gas which surround him.— The madman being sufficiently asphyxia tpd for Isis purpose, M. Godard allows the balloon to descend slowly to the earth. The drama is finished. Arrived on ' , rm./Irina, M. Godard, not bearing any hatred to the author of his per ilous voyage r . hastenedto restore him to an imation, and had hint conveyed, hands and feet bound to, the neighboring station.

Whoever expects to be successful in the management of the hon. - y bee, must dis card the word hick, and substitute in i ts place good co.atmon sense and untiring at tention. If left entirely to themselves, they will be found , like many other branches of rural economy, not to pay, and the bee beaker will unwisely conclude that he has no luck in keeping bees. On the contra ry, if managed, with diligence and skill, they will not only furnish the npiarian with some of the ' , sweets of life," but will also occasionally fill his packets with the needful. Scam MANNusoutxr. , --Place the hive ! where it is intendid they shall stand during the summer, which should be where the sun can strike the hive in the early part of the day, and also where they can be easily watched by the family during the swarming season. Keep the entrance to hives pretty well closed, to prevent the chilling of the young brood. This .will al so guard against robbing; for it is at this season of the year that they aro inclined to rob, which they never do when the have plenty of honey to gather. About the first of June, raise the hives from the bottom board by placing blocks of wood •or small stones under the corners. Some apiarians raise then: tap early in the spring, Nhich is wrong, as the cold winds of spring will chill the brood. Some do not raise them at all, but leave them close to the bottom board all summer. In this case they should be examined every few days, and all worms found under the edges of the hive killed—not brushing off on the ground, for that is where they want to go —but give them a regular smashing. SWARMINO.—Every tise-keeper should be provided with a bee•hat, which can be `made of wire screen doubled round like a cylinder' with two ends rivited together and a piece of cloth sewed over the top or crown. 'Fake a piece of calico the same length of the screen before doubling, sew the ends making a cylinder as of tho screen together, fasten the ends of the cloth and screen together, and it is finished Put the but on, let ,he looter end of the cloth come down around the neck, and shoulders, button the coat or frock tight around the neck, put on a pair of woolen gloves or mittens, and you are armed for any emergency. Let those who have new er used one get one and try it, and they will never do without it again, Lay some boards on the ground,and spread a sheet over them to keep the bees out of the grass, set the hive on the sheet with the front edge raised about an inch. If the swarm has alighted on the limb of a tree that can be eat of;; rut it off carefully and shake them off' on the ahem in front of the hive, 11,1,1 they will soon enter. II they alight on a valuable, and you do not wish to cut it off; take a pan and brush the bees into it with a wing, slid empty them in front of hive. If they gather to tha body of a tree or on the fence, as they sometimes do, brush them off into a pan or dipper, in the same manner. The will readily en• ter the hive. Some have supposed that the queen must always be got into the hive first which is not's°, elle being frequently nearly last to enter. As soon as they have all entered the hive. carry it to whore it is to remain and cover it with boards or green boughs to shade it for a fete days.— When this precation is taken, they will not often leave the hive. If the hive is new, never wash it with anything, if it is an old hive, it should be scraped and washed with water sweetened with honey or sugar. Somebody once told me to wash my hives with sweetened whiskey, and I never had a swarm leave when lila ed in that manner. Second or third swarms, if late in the season, :Mount be returned to the parent hive, which they will do il the queen is found and destroyed FALL MANAGEMENT. —Double all late swarms that have not honey enough to winter, nsa large swarm wil I consume but little more than a small one; and if two small swarms, with the contents of their hives are put together, they will generally do well and looks one good swarm, other wise they must both be consigned to the brimstone WINTER MANAGEMENT,—See that the hives are properly ventilated that the mois ture which always arises frotn the good healthy swarm does not gather in the top of the hive and freeze in cold weather.— Many bees are lost in this way. After con suming all the honey where the aro clus tered, they die of starvation. The remedy is to keep them so warm that the moisture will nut freeze, or let it escape by ventila tion.

Make a box of the same size of the hive, with a a pane of glass in the top. Turn the hive bottom upwards and place the box on top, and wind a cloth around where they come together. Let them stand a few minutes ; to give the bees time to fill themselves with honey ; then, with n couple of sticks, rap smartly on the lower part of the hive ; and they will rush tip to the light to get out When they , aro nearly up into the box take it off, and, having previously arranged a hive rs for swarming, shake them out in front of the hive, and they will soon en• ter. Take the comb out of the old hive. and what bees are left in brush off, and they will enter with the rest. A little to bacco smoke, blown into the bottom of the hive, will sometimes be of assistance in driving them up. The smoke of burning rags will also answer the same purpose Smoking them also serves to make them good natured and less inclined to sting. If it should be bad weather for a few days af ter driving, they should be fed. DOUBLING Olt UNITING SWAR3lB.—Drive them out of ono of the hives as directed above. Thdn take one of the hives you wish to unite them witb, invert it and smoke them well with tobacco or the smoke of cotton rags, then sprinkle them with sweetened water with a little peppnrmint esscence in it. Take the box with the bees in it:from the other hive, smoke and sprin Isle them, and set the hive where it stood with the front edge a little raised, that the scattering bees may enter. Smoke them occasionally fora short time. This will keep them goad natured and give them all one scent, that they can not distinguish friends from strangers. They will com. mence eating the sweetened water, and, mingling together, will rite as ono family. ' This should be done late in the season. if upon a pleasant day they should come out of the• hive, the old one should be placed where it stind, and what bees enter it can at night ba returned to the other hive.

AN ELOPEMENT-A BRIDE IN BOYS' CLOTHS• The St. Louis Republican has the follow item as occurred in that city:— About 5 o'clock Monday evening, two young persons, dressed in a very gentle• manly manner, walked into the office of Justice Herckenwrath, on Walnut street. The oldest introduced himself as Samuel A. Patterson, and said for several years lie had been paying courteous attentions to Miss Louisa Chamberlain, in one of the border towns of Indiana. His suit had been well received by the young lady, and they were engaged to be married;'but the father of his affianced interposed his ob jections to the proposed hymenial eo.part• nership, and declared with great positive. ness that the twain should not be made ono flesh. Finding Chamberlain, Sr., inexo. robin, Mr. Patterson had concluded to go to Pike's Peak, hop;ng to reap golden treas• urns as the result of his journey, and on Iris return experience less difficulty "in conciliating his sweetheart's obdurate pa- rent." So about a week ago, bidding good bye for nwhile.to his native town, and in dulging in a kiss or two, together with a chas.e embrace, in which Miss Louisa was a participant, he steered his course for St. Louts. The thought of a long separation from her dearly beloved, but more than all the fear thnt absence might drive her image frost his heart, was to much for the lair Louisa. She took a younger brother into confidence. nnd poured into his sympathet. is ear the story of her grief. There was a dash of romance in that younger broth- OT, and said he, “Lousta, run ofl—meet Sam—marry him—and the d-1 take the consequence." Ott that hint she spake. That, indeed, she had already resolved up on. The above narrative, perhaps not in the some words, but in substance similar, was told to Justice 11—, night before last, at 5 o'clock P. M., precisely. The Squire meditated. At length he suid he would rather not perform the cer. emony. ' , But you must" said Patterson, "and besides, if you don't some magistrate will, and you might as well have the nr -, ,ey as any other." 'Phe last wab a wise thought for the young anticipatory husband. (Melt" observed Esq. H— ; .bring the lady here—l'll tic the knot," Mr. Patterson walked to another portion of the room where his genteel companion had taken a seat. VOL. XXIV. NO. -18-: “Here she is” he announced, as they both advanced to the Justice's desk. We will not say that the functionary who presides over Fourth Ward was dumb founded, sttuck aghast, for he was not.— He was simply surprised. He shook his head and remarked that if the lady would retire to her boarding-house and re-appear in the costume of her sex he would gladly accede to their wishes. A short hour elapsed. Miss Chamber lain, attired in all the paraphernalia of hoops and other femenine et ceterm, now a blooming, blushing young Indy of sweet seventeen. entered the office, accompanied by the smiling and altogether happy Mr, Patterson. Five minutes served to place them to a new relation, and after receiving the congratulations of the peace officer of the State they departed on their way "re joicing" of course. Yesterday morning the identical pair were seen in a buggy—but the fair Louisa was again violating an ordinance of the c.ty, by being dressed in male attire. in the afternoon she started back to her borne in Indiana, and on Saturday her husband leaves St. Louis, still hound for the orange colored Peak of Pike. - - WANTED TO KNOW.

REASONS FOR WEARING A MOUSTACHE. —We have been able to draw up a table of the different reasons for wearing a mous tacit. We have questioned not less than. one thousand persons so adorned, and their amiwers have helped us tc the follow ing result:— To avoid staving To avoid catching cold To bide the teeth To take from a prominent nose To avoid being taken as an Englishman Because they are in the army 5 Because they have been in the army 221 Because the aristocracy does it 2 Because it is artistic 29 Because I au, a singer a Because 1 travela deal Becati , e I've lived long on the contitent 3 Because the wife likes it 8 Because I have weak lungs Because it acts as a respirator Because it is headily Because the young ladies admire it 471 Because it is considered 'the thing" 10 Because he chooses 1 It will be seen from the above table that not ono person confesses to 'vanity' being the motive. The majority of persons wear a moustache becatm they imagine, in their conceit, it becomes them; but how rarely you meet a person who has the courage to admit it. Fier Wm. B. 4stor, who is worth $O, 000.000 recently requested Rev.

He said he had more money than he coulJ take care of. Question No. 10. The Landlord 'li•icl•ed,--Twentyone. persons sat down, to dinner at art inn, with the landlord at the head of the table. When dinner was finished it was resolved that one of the party should pay the whole score, to be decided as follows: A person should commence counting the company, and every seventh man was to rise from his seat. until all were counted but one, who was the individual who should pay the whole bill. One of the waiters was fixed upon to count the company out, who ow• ing his master a rudge, resolved to make him the the person who should have to pay. Hots must he proccod to accomplish this ?
