Scrofula, or King's Evil,
is a constitutional disease, a corruption of the
blood, by which this fluid becomes 7itiated,
weak, and poor. Being in the circulation, it
pervades the whole body, and may burst out
m 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 veriously
caused by mercurial disease, low I::ing, 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 be the rod of Bins who says, "1
will visit the iniquities of the fathers upon
their children."
Its effects commence by deposition from the
blood of corrupt or ulcerous matter, which, its
the longs, liver, and internal organs, is termed
tubercles; in the glands, swellings; and on
the surface, eruptions or sores. This foul cor
ruption, which F eudon in the blood, depress*
the energies of life, so that scrofulous constitu
tions now only suffer from scrofulous com
plaints, but they have far less power to with
stand the attacks of other diseases; conse
quently, vast numbers perish by disorders
which, although not scrofulous in their color%
aro still rendered fatal Ly this taint in the
system. Most of the consumption which de
cimates the human family has its origin directly
in this scrofulous contamination; and many
destructive diseases of the liver, kidners, brain,
and, indeed, of all the organs, arise from or
aro aggravated by the same Cottle.

as it afterwards proved, was the means of
securing her from much suffering and pri
vation. The cares of the bark was made
up of pork, flour, groceries, mining tools,
and several bales of blankets, buffalo robes
and heavy clothing.
The commencement of the voyage was .
pleasant, and nothing occurred to destroy
the anticipations of happiness indulged in
by Miss Richardson, until the vessel had
passed the Manhouline Islands, and was
about to enter the Straits of Mackinaw.
They passed the Great Manitouline just
at dark, and immediately afterwards were
assailed by a terrific storm, surpassing in
violence anything which Miss Richardson
had before seen. During the morning of
this day the Captain had tapped a barrel
of whisky, which was in his cabin, of the
contents of which he nod the mate had co•
piously partaken. Contrary to their usu•
al custom, they had both retired to sleep
immediately after supper, leaving the bolls
in charge of a sailor named Dad." Mies
Richardson is of the opinion that the whis-
Icy had been circulating among the crow,
as well as the (Zeus, and that they were
all under its influence. At all events the
storm continued to increase an violenc!,
and the ves.:el was driven from her course.

were aroused and brought on deck, the
former announced that they had been dri.

Moral Suasion ou a Rani
When a friend of curs. whom yve call
Agricola, was a boy, he lived on a farm in
Berkshire county, the owner of which was
troubled by a dog Wolf. The cur killed
his sheep, knowing, perhaps, that he was
conscientiously opposed to capital punish
ment, and he could devise no means to pre.
vont it. ‘, 1 can break him of it," said
Agricola, a if you will give me leave."—
f , Thou art permitted," said the honest old
farmer ; and we will let Agricola tell the
story in his own wands. "There was a
rant on the farm," said Agricola, "es no

stealing, and who stood in as much 'need
of moral suasion as the dog, I shut Wg
