Scrofula, or King's Evil,
is a constitutional disease, a corruption of the
blood, by which this fluid becomes vitiated,
weak, and poor. Being in the 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 callously
caused by mercurial disease, low living, dig
ordered or unhealthy food, impure air, filth
and filthy habits, the depressing vices, end,
above all, by the venereal infection. What
ever be its origin, it is hereditary in the con
stitution, descending " from parents to children
unto tho third and fourth generation ;" indeed,
it seems to bo the rod of Him who says, "I
will visit the iniquities of the fathers upon
Its effects commence by deposition from the
blood of corrupt or ulcerous matter, which, in
the lungs, liver, and internal organs, is termed
tubercles; in the glands, swellings; and on
the surface, eruptions or soros. This foul cor
ruption, which genders in the blood, depresses
the energies of hfe, so that scrofulous constitu
tions not 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 nature,
are still rendered fatal by this taint n 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, kidneys, brain,
and, indeed, of all the organ., arise from or
aro aggravated by the same cause.
One quarter of all our people arc scrofulous ;
their persona 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 medicine, and in
vigorate it by healthy food and exercise.

THE MASON'S LAST REQUEST.
It :vas a very hot day to the summer of
1778. The British Ger.eral, Clinton, with
a formidable army, was hastening across
the sandy plains of New Jersey, to join the
forces of General Howe at Sandy Hook.
And Washington, with nn army once more
regenerated into life, determined, if it lay
within the bounds of possibility, to prevent
that junction, and to effect hit purpose,
sent on a large detachment of light troops
under General Lee, to harass their arm
ments and retard their progress until he
could come up with his solo force and
effect their rapture or destructO.

Beneath a mother's curse no child

A mother is a mother still—
The holiest thing alive.
So says Coleridge, in his moving poem
of the "Three graves: l The cool, deliber•
ate malediction of a mother, whose heart
has been estranged and totted to hate to
wards her own offspring is, indeed, ii fear
ful, blighting thing. But there is anoth
er mode by which a mother may curse het
child, and that by neglecting us moral
education. Maternal influence is a trite
theme , yet as much as has been said to
illustrate its power, it has never in our
opinion been overrated. The mothers of
a nation are its creators ; and from the po
sition God and nature has given them,
must be its conservators or destroyers,
The influence of the nursery surpasses in
depth and contmuence all other influences.
