MISCELLANEOUS ADVERTISEMENTS 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 freo 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 be the rod of Him who says, " will visit tho iniquities of the fathers upon their children." Ito 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, 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 constitu tions not only suffer from scrofulous com plaints, but they have fur 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 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, kidneys, brain, and, indeed, of all the organs, arise from or are aggravated by the same cause. One 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 medicine, and in vigorate it by healthy food and exercise. Such a medicine we supply in AYER'S Compound Extract of Sarsaparilla, the 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. Hence it should be employed for the cure of not only scrofula, but also those other affec tions which arise from it, such as Enurrtvis and SKIN DISEASES, ST. ANTHONY'S FIRE, ROSE, Or ERYSIPELAS, PIMPLES, PUSTULES, BLOTCHES, BLAINS and BOILS, TUMORS, TETTER and SALT RHEUM, SCALD llsan, RINGWORM, Rinaumarism, SYPHILITIC and MERCURIAL DIS. EASES, DROPSY, DYSPEPSIA, Dentury, and, indeed, ALL COMPLAINTS ARISING PROM VITIA. TED on haulm BLOOD. The popular belief in impurity of the blood" is founded in truth, for aerofula is a degeneration of the blood. The particular purpose and virtue of this Sarsapa rilla is to purify and regenerate this vital fluid, velul.ls contaminated constitutions. Ayr's Cathartid Pills, FOR ALL THE PURPOSES OF A FAMILY PHYSIC, are so composed that disease within the range of their action can rarely withstand or evade them Their penetrating properties search, and cleanse, and invigorate every portion of the human organ ism, correcting its livened action, and restoring its healthy vitalities. As a consequence of these properties, the invalid who is bowed down with pain or physical debility is astonished to find his health or energy restored by a remedy at once so aim lc and inviting. Not only do they cure the every-day complaints of every body, but also many formidable and dangerous diseases, The agent below named is pleased to furnish gratis my American Almanac, containing certificates of their cures and directions for their use in the following complaints: Costive ness, Heartburn, Headache arisingfrom disorders 4 &munch, Nausea , Indigestion, Pam in and Morbid Inaction qf the Bowels, Flatulency, Loss of Appe tite, Jaundice, and other kindred complaints, arieing from a low state of the body or obstruction of its functions.

When once tried, its superiority over every other medicine of its kind is too apparent to escape observation, and where its virtues are known, the public no longer hesitate what antidote to employ for the distressing and dargerous affections of the pulmonary organs that are incident to our climate. While many inferior remedies thrust upon the community have failed and been discarded, this has gained friends by every trial, conferred benefits on the afflicted they can never forget, and pro duced cures too numerous and too remarkable to ho forgotten.

BY SERA SMITH Hardly any event creates a stranger sen sation in a thinly settled New England village, especially among the young folks, than the arrival of a fresh and blooming Miss, who comes to make her abode to the neighborhood. When, therefore Squire Johnson, the only lawyer in the place, and a very respectable man, of course, told Farmer Jones one afternoon that his wife's sister, a smart girl of eighteen, was coin ing in a few days to reside in the family, the news flew like wildfire through Pond village and was the principal topic of con. versation for a week. Pond village is sit uated upon the margin of one of those nu-, mesons and beautiful sheets of water that , gem the whole surface of New England, like the bright stars in an evening sky, and received its appellation to distinguish it front two or three other villages to the same township, which could not boast of n similar location. When farmer Jones I 7P igi t e nt ` iTlirlV;tarartt eyes of the whole family were upon for there was a peculiar working about his mouth and a knowing glance in his eyes that always told them when he had any thing of interest to communicate. But Farmer Jones' secretiveness was large, and his temperament, not the most active, and he would probably have rolled the im portant secret as n sweet morsel under his tongue for a long time, had not Mrs. Jones, who was rather of an impatient and pry ing turn of mind, contrived to draw it from .Now, Mr, Jones,' said she, es she hand ed him his cup of tea, 'what is it you are go ing to say? Do out with it; for you've been chewing something in your mina ev er since you came in the house.' 'Ws my tobackor. I s'pose,' said Mr. Jones, with another knowing glance of his eye. 'New father, what's the use?' said Su• san; we nil know you've something or oth• er you want to say, and why can't you telt us what 'tie.' 'La, who cares what 'tis said Mrs. Jones; 'if it was anything worth telling, we should'ilt have to wait for it, I dare say.' Hereupon Mrs. Jones assumed an air of the most perfect indifference, as the sure est way of conquering what she was pleas ed to call Mr. Jones' obstinacy, which by the way was a very improper term to ap ply in the case, for it was only the work ing of secretiveness, without the least par ticle of obstinacy attached to it. 'There was a pause of one or two min utes in the conversation, till Mr. Jones passed his cup to by tilled a second time, when, with a couple r f preparatory ahems he began to let out the secret. 'We are to have a new neighbor here in a few days,' raid Mr. Jones stopping short when he had uttered this much, and sipping his. tea and filling his mouth with food. Mrs. Jones, who was perfect in her tac tics, said not a word, but attended to the affairs of the table as though she had not noticed what was said. The farmer's se cretiveness had at last worked itself out, and ho began again. 'Squire Johnson's Wife's sister is com ing here in a few days, and is going to live with 'em.' 'Tito news being thus fairly divulged lett free scope for conversation. 'Well, I ntonderif she is a proud stuck up piece,' said Mrs. Jones. should'nt thinly she would be,' said Susan, 'for there ain't a more sociable wo man in the neighborhood than Mrs. John• son. So if she is at all like her sister 1 think we shall like her,' 'I wonder how old she is?' said Stephen who was just verging toward the close of his twenty-first year. .The Squire called her eighteen,' said Mr. Jones, giving a wink to his wife, as snuck as to say, that's about the right age for Stephan. 'I wonder if she is handsome,' said Su san, who was somewhat vain of her own looks, and having been.o sort of reigning belle in Pond ' , Wage for some time, she felt a little alarmed at the idea of a rival. '1 dare be bound she's handsome,' said Mrs. Jones, 'if she's sister to Mrs. John= son, for where'll you find a handsomer wo• man than Mrs. Johnson, go the town thro'?' " LIBERTY AND UNION, NOW AND FOREVER, ONE AND INSEPARABLE. " lILNTINGDON, PA., WEDNESDAY, JULY 27, 1859 After sup,ier, Stephen went down to Mr. Robinson's store, and told the news to young Charlie Robinson, and all the young fellows who were gathered there for a game at quoits and ring at wrestling.— And Susan went directly over to M r, Bean's and told Patty, and Potty went around to Widow Davis's and told Sully, and before nine e'clock the matter was pretty wel' understood in about every house in the village. At the close of the fourth day, a little before sunset, a chaise was seen to drive up to Squire Johnson's door. Of course the oyes of the whole village were turned in that direction. Sally Davis, who was just coining in from milking, set her pail down on the grass by the side of the road as soon as the chaise came in sight, and watched it till it reached the Squire's door, and the gentleman and lady had got out and gone into the house. Patty Bean was doing up the ironing, that afternoon, and she had just taken a hot iron from the fire as the chaise passed the door, and she ran with it in her hand and stood on the door steps till the whole ceremony of alighting, and greeting, and entering the house was over. to ann e r • s s, l ) i n e g h di with ili a e s . t a O h Le s ie,ta n ,,,i n ,,t d s p, n si g_ house first, a fi i r L s i t n - , he v s r h y ou l e l shouldfeel l a y , good and deal °t o i l .

OVT.—Many of our rea ders will recollect the circumstances of a man named Power, from Perry county, we he lieve, having been found dead on the canal at Harrisburg, some years ago, on the morning of the day on which Governor Bigler was inaugurated. The supposition then was that he had been drinking to ex cess, wandered to the canal, and fell off a budge or boat on the ice, receiving inju ries sufficient to cause death. It now turns out that ho was murdered. Last evening we wore informed thet a murderer, recent ly executed in California, confessed that ho killed Power. After committin ! , : the act, he searched the pockets of his victim, obtained about eighty dollars in immoy, and the same night fled for the West reaching California in safety, whore he was executed. He also confessed haviol murdered three other persons.
