Ocrofala, or King's Evil,
t it omatitutional disease, corruption of the
by which this fluid becomes vitiated,
weak. and poor. Being in the oirculatdon, it
puvades the whole body, and may burst out
in disease on any part of it. No organ is free
from its attacka, nor is there one which it may
net deetroy. The scrofulous taint in variously
caused by merourial disease, low living, dis
ordered or unhealthy food, impure air, 111th
and filthy habits, the dopmeing 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 Him 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, in
the lunge, liver, and internal organs, is termed
tubercles; in the glands, swelling.; and on
the surface, eruptions or sores. This foul cor
ruption, which genders in the blood, depresses
the energies of life, so that scrofulous constitu
tion. not only suffer front scrofulous com
plaints, but they have fur less power to with
stand the attacks of other diseases ; conse
quently, vast numbers parish by disorders
which, although not scrofulous in their nature,
are still condoned fatal by this taint in the
system. Most of the consumption which de
cimates the human family has its origin directly
in this scrofulous contamination ; and nanny

and, indeed, of all the organs, arise from or

And put sway the soft brown hair,
And hi a tone as low and deep
As loves's first whisper, breathes a prayer;
Her snow•white hands together pressed,
Her blue eyes sheltered in the lid,
The folded linen on her breast,
Just swelling with the charms it hid.
Alll from her long and flowing these
Escaped a bare and snowy foot,
Whose step upon the earth did press,
Like a pure ancw.flake, light and mute ;
!trd then from slumbers soft and warm,
Like a young spirit, fresh from heaven,
She bowed that plight and matchless form
And humbly prayed to be forgiven.
Oh, Oud I if souls unsoiled as these,
Need daily mercy from thy throne—
If she upon her bonded knees,
Our holiest and our purest one ;
She with a face so clear and bright,
We deem her some stray child of light;

Dar after day in her young years,
Must kneel and pray for grace.from thee,

For 'nom than three months Leopold

Ile now altered his course somewhat, be •

The life of Burns was lull of romance, but
there is not one circumstance in it all, so
romantic and full of interest as those which
attended and followed the gift of these
volunaes. He wee young when he wood
and won the affection of Mary, whom he
describes as gat warm-hearted, charming
young creature as ever blessed a man with
generous love. , The attachment was
mutual, and forms the stihict of many of
his earlier lyrics, as well as of the produc
tions of his Inter years, which shows that
it was very deep rooted. Before he was
known to fame, steeped in poverty to the
very dregs, and meditating an escape to
the West Indies, from the remorseless
fangs of a hard hearted creditor, he ad
dresssed to his "dear girl , , the song which
" Will ye go to the Indies, my Mary,
And leave sold Scotia's shore ;
Will ye go to tho Indies,lny Mary,
And cross the Atlantic's roar?"
But neither Burns nor his Mary wore
doomed to "cross the Atlantic's roar," nor
; -
to realize thuse dreams of tit•tual bi:ss
which passion or enthusiasm had engen
dered in their youthful imaginations._

shine of life, was to be removed to a better
and a happier world. Her death shed a
sadness over his whole future life, and a
spirit of subdued brief and tenderness was
displayed whenever she was the milieu of
his conversation or writing. Witness as
" Ye banks an' braes an' streams around

the evening was a cold arid keen one, in
September. he n anderet: into his barn yard,
from which the entreaties of his wife could
not, for some time, recall him. To these
entrenties, he always promised obedience,
but these promises were brit the lipkiud
nesses of affection, no sooner made than
forgotten, for his eye was fixed on heaven,
arid his unceasing stride indicated that his
heart was also there. Mrs. Earns' last
approach to the barn yard found him
stre . ched on a mass of straw, looking ab•
strnctedly on a planit which, in a clear
starry sky, "shima like another moon,"
:ter] having prevailed on him to return into
the house, instantly wrote, as they still
stand, the following sublime verses. " To
Mary in Elear-n," which have thrilled
through many breasts, and drawn tears
from ninny eyes, and which will live the
noblest of the lyrics of Burns, while sub
limity and pathos have a responding charm

' Remarkable Race by Railroad—Stakes
One day last week, as the eastward
bound express train reached Laporte, Ind.,
a passenger stepped oil while the engine
was being replenished with wood and wa
ter, and walked to and fro on the platform,
and consumed to walk until the whistle
sounded. The other passengers got on
board and the train passed off. but the gen
tleman still walked on. A few minutes
alter the train had gone, a station men saw
the pedestrian, end, going up to him, asked
in a surprised tone--

The Future of Polities.
The Residing Journal says : The poli

great parties only.
But although we have four parties of
more or less influence, and, if we trace out
their sub divisions North and South, a doz.
en besides,--they may all be classed under
too great heads—the party which upholds
human slavery, and labor for its extension,
and the: party which is endeavoring to re•
strict this great national curse, and confine
it within its present limits. The antago
nism is here marked and decided. Upon
luestions of minor importance, politicians
and people may agree to differ, but the
slave questiln in its present aspect, admits
of no compromise. As this issue is likely
to be the all engrossing one, and to over.
ride all others, it follows that there will be
two great parties only in the contest of
1860—the pro-slavery Democracy, and
Republican freemen. Other issues will
doubtless enter into the contest, but they
will be of secondary importance, and fail,
even if the attempt is made, to withdraw
any material portion of force from the main
army of the belligerents.
That we are not mistaken in these views,
we think apparent by a glance at the prep-
arations already making for the contest...,
The Southern politicians, generally so
shrewd, are hastening their own downfall
by their increased arrogance. Haring

and pro-Slavery Judiciary, in I oreimg

thus establish the dome:. tic slave trade on
a firm basis, they now demand that the
foreign slave trade be equally recognized
and protected by the government. As the
Charleston Convention will be entirely
in their hands, they will most probably
adopt a platform embracing these princi
ples. To thin the North will never yield
assent. Against a proposition so MOlllO.
