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
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
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,
contaminated constitutions.

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

Patients in advanced stages of the
do wide is the field of its usefulness and so nu
merous are the cases of its cures, that almost
overy section of country abounds in persons pub
licly known, who have been restored from alarming
and even desperate diseases of the lungs by its
use. 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.

One Undivided, Faithful Heart,
Ono undivided, faithful heart,
One gentle, artless creature,
With truth and virtue for her part,
And gladness iu each feature,
Is worth to man far more than gold
Of India's sparkling. treasure,
Or all the wealth by nations sold
In over running measure.
One undivided, trusting heart,
When other friends are flown,
While joy and gladness free impart,
And whisper " 'Tin TIIINE own."
Whatever may betide thee here,
That faithful heart is thine,
And never shalt thou cherish fear,
But on its love recline.
Away with those who fain would make,
A wire of hearts their altar,
And when they cannot heal, will break
And cause true love to falter.
Give me the heart that bath that love
Which naught on earth can sever,
Then I no more away will rove,
But cherish it forever.
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
'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
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'?'
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
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

MURDER WILL. 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.
