Soroftila, 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 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 limrth generation ;" kidded,
it acorns to be the rod of him who says, "I
will visit the iniquities of the lathers upon
their children."
Its effects commence by deposition from the
blood of corrupt or ulcerous matter, which, in
the lungs, liver, and internal organ., is termed
tubercle.; in the glands, swellings; and on
the surface, eruptions or sores. This foul cor
ruption: which genders in the blood, depresses
the energies of life, so that scrofulous constitm
tions not only sutler from scrofulous com
plaints, but they have far leas power to with
stand the attacks of other diseases ; conse
quently, vest numbers perish by disorders
which, although not eetufelow in their nature,
are still rendered fatal by this taint in the
system. Most of the eonsumption which de
cimates the human family haw ite origin directly
in this scrofulous contamination ; and many
destructive diseases of the liver, kidneye, brain,
and, indeed, of all the organs, noise from or
are aggravated by the same cause.
Ono quarter of all our people are eerefulous;
their persons are invaded by this lurking in
fection, and their health is undermined by it:
To cleanse it from the my.tem we must renovate
die blood by an alterative medicine, and in,
vigorate It by healthy food and exercise.
Such a medicine we supply in

disorder from the blood, and the rescue of the

Our valea are sweet with fern and rose,
Our hills err maple crowned ;
But not from theta our fathers chose
The village burying•ground.
The dearest wont in all , I " "and.,
To death they act atifits.;
With scanty grace from Nature's hand,
And none from that of Art
A winding wall of mosss stone,
Frost flung and broken lines;
A lonesome acre thinly grawn
With grass and wandering vines.
Without the wall a birrhA rep shows
Its drooped and ma:tad heed;
Within a atag.horned sumach crews
Fern leafed, with spikes of red.
There sheep that graze the neighboring plain,
Like white elate come and go ;
The farm barer dregs his fetlock chain,
The cow•hell tinkles slow.
Low mourns the river from its bed,
The distant pines reply ;
Like mourners shrinking from the dead,
They eland apart and sigh.
Unshaded smites the summer sun,
Unchecked the winter blast';
The school girl learns the place to shun,
With glances backward cast.
For thus our fathers testified—
That he might read who ran—
The prompthiess of human pride,
The nothingness of man.
They dared not plant the grave with flowers,
Nor dress the funeral sod,
WI ere, with a love as deep as ours,
They left their dead whh God.
The hard and thorny path they kept,
From beauty turned aside ;
Nor missed they over those who slept,
The grace t, life denied.
Yet still the wilding flowers would blow,
The golden leaves would fill,
The seas°ns come, the seasons go,
And God be good to all.
Above the graves the blackberry hung
In bloom and green its wreath.
And harebells swung as it they rung
The chimes uf peace beneath.
The belitity nature laces to share,
The gift she hail fat all
The common light, the ems otto air,
Wert:rt pt. the grave yard's wall.
It knew the glow of eventide,
The sunrise ant) the WI.,
And glorified awl sanctified,

Golly had only been married a fortnight;
and as we stepped into the cradle, the men
bout, tingly asked him if he hadn't a dying
speech to leave for his wife; and then Mr
Stsming having shaken heads with us,
and bid us be cool and steady. we were
drawn slowly up. It was known all over

streets were already fired with starers.—
Collv was quiet; and when I waved my
cap to the people he said snappishly that
this was no time for such folly, and that
he thought I might think of better things
than how to amuse those gaping fools, who,

see us meet with an accident.

The New York City Mutual Life Incur
ance Crrnpany, have recently published
some interesting statistic. founded on the
experience of the company. The follow
ing are interesting:
The average duration of human life is
worked out in a very cool and systematic
earner, and proves that the dangereus
period for young. America is—of ceurse
after infancy—the age of twenty or them-•
about,. When a man gets to be thirty
'ears of age his prospects of further axis•
tence are quite fair, but decrease rapidly
from eixty. Some curious variations are,
however, ohaervitble in this general rule
for we find in the comparative se .urity of
I ,4l , ,7',Ntlriiy;• at ogre twenty-seven and
roily two fur maxima, and at twenty four
and thirty five for minima. In orb, r
words, the value of life or chance of living
during the ensuing year increases from
the age of twenty-four to twenty seven;
d•crea'es from the latter age to that of
thirty.fitur; again rapidly increases front
the age of thirty hair to that of forty two
after which the value again d.cre tires, and
with ounsiderable regu'arity, to the close
of hie. Thu., those of our renders who
are now in their twenty-seventh and those
in their forty-second year, stand a better
chance than less favored mortals of arcing
the next anniversary of their birth Not
withat iteling this consoling affection, we
would not, however, advise them to go too
much in the earn, to drink too freely of ice
water, or to ntu•tnpt. to read President Bu
clietian's next message.
For becheiiirs —those very Is h mael, of
society, who find everybody's hands against
them—we have little that is comiolatory,—
If they consult the Interests of the Lite In
surance companies, sod feel any desire to
pieties, length of days and live long in the
land. they will at once rush to matrimony,
for, though the annuli' mortality among
husbands at the youriget ages is excessive
ly high. two hundred and ninety-three
young husbands u•uler twenty Nears old
dying to every sixty-seven b chelnrs of the
sante age, yet the animal mortality of beck
elors who may he above the age of twen
ty le front •seventy-four to forty-one per
cent greater than that among hush unit.—
At least that is the result of statistics of
French mortality,and tiny hold good to a
greater or leas extent in the United States.
Thus, the duty of every houest tnun is to
take care of himself until he is twenty,
lheft take a wife, and then take out art in
