Scrofula, or King's Evil,
I. 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, (Hs
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
atitution, descending "from parents to children
unto the third and fourth generation ;" indeed,
k seems to be the rod of Ilhn who says, I
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 lungs, 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, depress(
the energies of life, so that scrofulous constitu
tions not only suffer from scrofulous com
plainte, but they have far less power to with
stand the attacks of other diseases; conse
quently, vast numb.cs perish by dieorders
which, although not scrofulous in their nature,
aro still rendered fatal by this taint in the
triton. Most of the consumption which de
csmates the human family has its origin directly
in this scrofulous contamination ; and many
destructive disease. 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;
*Sr persons are invaded by this lurking in
feetion, and their health is undermined by it.
To cleanse it from the system we must renovate
So blood by an alterative medicine, and in
vigorate it by healthy food and exercise.
Such a medicine we supply in
CAimpoand 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 moot 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 consequence..
Hence it should be employed for the cure of
not only scrofula, but also those other affec
tions which arise from it, such as EEUPTITH
eases, DROPSY, DYSPEPSIA, Demur:, and,
111 D OR IMPURE BLOOD. The popular belief
in " impurity of the blood" is founded in truth,
the scrofula is a degeneration of the blood. Tke
particular purpose and virtue of this Sarsapa
rilla is to purify and regenerate this vital fluid,
without which sound health is impossible in
oentarninatcd constitutions.

I mourn no more my vanished years:
Beneath a tender rain,
An April rain of smiles and tears,
My heart is young again.
The west winds blow. and, singing low,
I hear the glad streams run
The windows of my soul I throw
Wide open to the sun.
No longer forward and behind
I look in hope and fear;
But, grateful, take the good I find,
The best of now and here.

The manna dropping from God's hand
Rebukes my painful care.
I break my pilgrim staff, I lay
Aside the toiling oar;
The angel sought so far away
I welcome at my door.
The airs of Spring may never play
Among the ripening corn,
Nor freshness of the flowers of May
Blow through the Autumn morn;
Yet shall the blue•eyed gentian look
Through the fringed lids to heaves,
And the pale aster in the brook
Shall see its image given.
The woods shall wear their robes of praise,
The south wind softly sigh,
Aud sweet, calm days in golden haze
Melt down the amber sky.
Not less shall manly deed and word
Rebuke an age of wrong;
The graven flowers that wreath the sword
Make not the blade less strong.
But smiting hands shall learn to heal,
To build as to destroy,
Nor less my heart for others feel
That I the more enjoy.
All as God wills, who wisely heeds
To give or to withhold,
And kuoweth more of all my needs
Than all my prayers have told I
.Enough that blessings undeserved
Have marked my erring track—
That wheresoe'r my feet have swerved,
His chastening turned me back—
That more and inure a Providence
Of love is understood,
Making the springs of time and sense
Sweet with eternal good—
That death seems but a covered way
Which opens into light,
Wherein no blinded child can stray

No struggle in the history of the world
has produced nobler instances of heroism
than that of our own gloriou4 revolu•
ton. The achievements which light up
ite expanse of that deadly conflict like
wars in the firmament, put to shame the
melodramatic heroes of Greece; indeed, it
is not too much to say, that every moun

ohm, love; and it is a tale of love and pa
triotisni we have now to tell.
Sergeant Jasper belonged to that most
famous of all heroic bands, Marion's Brig
ade, where his valor and talents soon won
him distinction. Among other daring
deeds, his rescuing our flog at the battle
of Fort Moultrie deserves to be mentioned.
hi the hottest fire of the conflict, the flag
of the fort was shot away. and full without
the fort. Leming over the rampart, he
seized the flag and returned amid the
cheers of even the British. For this da
ring deed, Gen e Rutledge presented him
with a sword.
Like many other families at that time,
his was divided on the great question.--
His older brother took the side of the
English, and served in their army. Out
of affection to his brother, arid a wish to
examine into the strength and condition of
the enemy he resolved, with another pa
triot soldier, Sergeant Newton, to pay the
British camp a visit. Id is brother's posi
tion in it enabled him to receive his two
friends without arty suspicion of their be
ing spies, and they were entertained for
two or three days with great hospitali
While they wore thus engaged, n small
party of Americans were brought in prix•
oners, and as they had deserted from the
British and enlisted in the American ranks,
their doom would have been death. This
the brother of Jasper assured him woo to
be their fate. With them were the wife
and child of one of the prisoners. Her
distress at her husband's approaching fate
touched the human heart of Jasper. Con
fiding his purpose to his friend, Sergeant
Newton, they bade adieu to Jasper's broth
er, and took their leave. They had no
sooner got out of sight of the comp than
they made a delouh, stretched across the
country so as to elude all suspicion, should
they meet with any British soldiers.
It was the custom then of -the English
to send all the prisoners taken in that quar
ter to Savannah for trial. At a little spring
about two miles from Savannah. Jasper
and Newton secreted themselves awaiting
the arrival of the British escort with their
prisoners. It had occurred to Jasper that
as they must pass this spot, it was proba
ble they might rest here for a short time
to refresh themselves, and the a oody na
ture of the spoi would favor a rescue.
Atter some hours' anxious suspense,
they saw the escort with their prisoners
approach. The guard was ten in num
ber, and armed. The corporal, with four
men, conducted their captives to the wa
ter, and told them to rest themselves. for
an hour, at the same time giving thorn
some provisions. The Sergeant then told
the men to ground arms, and seat them
selves. The prisoners threw themselves
upon the earth in hopeless despair. Near
to the wretched man sat his wife and child.
'rwo of the men alone kept their arms as
sentries. As the rest of the men were
filling their canteens with water, Jasper
and Newton came stealthily, seized two
muskets that were stacked, shot the two
sentries, and rushing upon the others
stunned them with the butts of their weep.
ens. Deprived of their arms, the others
abandoned the conflict and fled.
Releasing the prisoners, they escaped
across the river to the Americans.
But the most romantic incident in this
brave man's life was his love for Miss Sal
ly St. Clair, or as she is termed in our an
nals, the Maiden Warrior. This was a
beautiful Creole girl, who returned his
passion with a purity and intensity seldom
known on earth When he was called
upmi to join the defenders of his country,
her grief was unbounded. Their hour of
parting came, and after the tenderest
adieus the gallant soldier sprang upon his
horse, and joined his regiment. Scarcely
had the sound of his horse's feet died up-
on the air, than her romantic brain sugges
ted the plan of joining her lover by en
listing in the same brigade. She resolved
to put her project in immediate operation.
Securing a suit of male attire about her
own size she severed her long and jetty
ringlets, dressed her hair like a 'nail's and
purchasing a horse, she set off three days
after, alone, to offer her services to the no
ble Marion. Her offer was accepted, and
a lithe, active stripling was added to the
1 corps to which her lover belonged. The
contrast between the stripling and these
men, in their uncouth garbs, their mas
sive faces, enbrowned and disfigured by
sun and rain, was Indeed striking. But
none were so eager for the battle, or in
different to fatigue as the fair faced boy.
It was found that his energy of character,

his luck of physique. None ever suspec
ted biro to be a woman. Not even Jasper
himself, although she was often by his
side, penetrated her disguise.
Thlt romance of her situation increased
the fervor of her passion. It was her de
light to reflect that, unknown to hint, she
was by his side, watching over him in the
hour ol danger•. She fed her passion by
gazing upon him in the hour of slumber,
hovering near him when stealing .hrough
awantp and thicket, and being always
ready to avert danger from his head. ^
But gradually there stole a melancholy
presentment over the poor girl's mind.—
She had been tortured with hopes deferred;
the war was prolonged, and the prospect
of being restored to, him grew more and
more uncertain. But now she felt that
her dream of happiness could not be real
ized. Site became convinced that death
was about to snatch her away from his
aide; but site prayed that she might die,
and he never to know what length the vi.
°levee of her passion had led tier.
It was an eve before a battle The
camp had sunk into repose. The watch
fires were burning low, and only the slow
tread of sentinels fell upon the profound
silence of the night air, as they moved
through the dark shadows of the forest.—
Stretched upon the ground, with no other
couch 'bans blanket, reposed the warlike
form of Jasper. Climbing vines trailed
themselves into a canopy above his head,
through which stare shone down softly.—
The faint flicker from the expiring embers
of a fire fell athwart his countenance, and
tinged the cheek of one who bent above
his couch. It was the smooth faced strip
ling. She bent low down, as if to listen
to his dream, or to breathe into his soul
pleasant visions of love and happiness --
But tears trace themselves down .he fair
one's cheek. and fall silently but rapidly
upon the brow of her lover. A mysteri
ous voice has told her that the parting has
come; that te.morrow her destiny is con
summated. There is one last, long, lin
gering look, and then the unhappy maid
is seen to tear herself away from the spot,
to weep out her sorrows in privacy.
Fierce and terrible is the conflict that on
the morrow rnes on the spot. Foremost

We have before spoken cif the extraor

made by the Rev. Mr. M'Naughton, will
give some further idea of the character at

• This HI I
tending itself in Beltast in the most rapid
manner, Prayer meetings are held al
most every evening, and are attended by
immense crowds, many amongst whom are
affected with all the external symptoms al
ready described. There is an evident out
pouring of the Spirit of God in answer to
believing, faithful prayer: The most skep
tical, who will but 'Wend any of the meet

other places in this town will be compelled
to admit that the hand of the Lord is vis

the moans used for bringing sinners to
seek happiness in a Savior's love. All
evangelical denominations have joined in
this good work, and success—marvelous
success—has hitherto attended their efforts.
Every Protestant place of worship in this
town is becoming rapidly filled. There
are no empty pews now—no unoccupied
seats. Every evening the streets are
crowded with hundreds and thousands who
are wending their way—not to the place
of amusement—not to join in the giddy
dance—not to attend either theatre or con
cert; but with their Bibles, hymn-looks '
and psalm-book in their hands, eagerly
pressing onward to trio house of God to
endeavor to obtain admissioo in time, so
that they may therein hear instruction as
to how they shall escape from the City of
Destruction, and at length reach the Ce
lestial Kingdom. At the services con
ducted in the several churches many have
been led to seek pardon, and many profess
to have obtained it, and are now going on
their way rejoicing."
A cor'resiondenT of another paper, speak

speaker was calling on God that the Holy
Spirit might deacend as with tire, a flash

An engineer, connected with the Jeckel sur

line across the mountains between this place
and Tehauutepec, he came across Indians who
never seen a white man in their lives, who
spoke uo language known to any 01 his party,
and were Absolute "free lovers,' living all to

sleeping in one bed, and acknowledging a
community of wives and properties. In anoth

Indians had light hair, fair complexion and
blue eyes; and yet another town where all the
inhab items were lepers, covered with the white

bition of very remarkable and unnatural char
actor attracted a small but highly respectable
audience at Melodeon on Thursday evening
last. A young man by the name of James
Stevens had advertised that be would do
many wonderful things in the way of cutting
himself up with knives, nailing his feet acme
and legs to chairs, to the wall, ke., which ris•
bounding exploits he proceeded to exhibit at
the appointed hour, in the presence of a num
ber of physicians of celebrity, including mem
bers of the medical Faculty of Transyivania
University, and other learned Professors, who
were invited to stand that they might detect
any fraud or deception, if practiced. He
began by sticking a handful of pins, up to the
head, in hie legs, then drove an awl through
the middle of kis wrist into a chair; drove a
knife through the muscle of his leg; nailed his
foot to a wooden shoe, the nail or awl passing
through the middle of the foot, and as walked
about the stage; cut his dexter finger through
the fleshy part, exhibiting the naked bone,
and concluded by passing a knife through his
cheek, the blade protruding from his mouth.
In all this but little blood was drawn. He
also offered to drive a knife through each leg
and hang himself from the wall, which the an
dience mercifully excused him from doing,
feeling satisfied that be could accomplish what
ever be proposed. About the whole proce•
due there was no sort of humbug, as the eyes
I of divers gentlemen who were upon the eland
were steadily fixed upon him, and any " unbe-
Thomas Thad an opportunity to touch the
knife-blade on the opposite side to that into
which it had been thrust, of the leg, wrist or
hand. He used a few galvanic rings about hie
person, which Was probsbly more for the show
than anything else, as they could affect nothing.
Mr. Stereos looks to be not inure than twenty

he proposed to operate in a shailur manner
upon any one of the audience, agreeing to for

was prudently declined. We saw this man of

A Fearful Perforntance,
On Saturday night, at a little after
eleven, su bsequent to the play, the curtain
rose and exhibited M. Blondin, standing
upon the lower part of the rope which
led from the back part of the stage of the
Metropolitan up to the roof of the theatre
in the third tier, an elevation of fifty feet,
at an angle of forty-four degrees, with
Col. Luna Smith soundly and firmly per
ched upon kis shoulders. M. Blondin
had his heavies* balanes pole, and com
menced his perilous wall:, without the
slightest hesitation, treading firmly and
! confidently on th,, rope, as though ha
had no extra weight to bear.
He walked somewhat slower than is his
wont, but gained the third tier, amid the
cheers and hums of the whole audience
who woke breathlesa from the time he
started frotn the stage until he reached
his destination, Arriving there with his
burden, he waited about three minutes and
then commenced his still more perilous
return. This he nccomphshed without
accident, though ;evert( times ho preten
ded to lose his footing, sending cold childs
up and dove the hearts of every soul pres
ent, and we opine alarmed Col. Lum a
little more than standing in the midst of a
flame, and holding the pipe of an engine.
We have seen him scorching from head
to foot, when he had apparently more
nerve than on this occasion.
The feat, wonderful as it was, perfectly
preformed, and it in more extraordinary
Irom the fact that, while M. 131ondin
weighs but one hundred and thitty•five
pounds, the weight of the man carried
was a hundred and stxtylve. We think
this a greater preformance than crossing
the chasm of the Niagara.
much of our indignation against even a
deliberate wrong would be disarmed, if we
could but know for ourselves a tithe of all
the sorrow, and trouble, ana disappoint
ment the poor erring heart had passed
through !—what efforts were mode in
youth to stand np against the pressure of
the world; and how, when fallen, from
miscalculation ; or an over confiding na
ture, or want of tact, it bravely rose up
and tried again; and when hard necessity
came and drove it to the wall, how it looked
around for help, and waited, still striving,
and even when fallen, how it yearned for
one more chance to rise and be a man—
ho tv loth at lust to give up all for lost !
Could we but see a thousandth part of these
struggles, us they rend our brother's bosom,
and almost break his heart, how should it
disarm us of our vindictiveness, and incline
us even to run to him, and raise him up,
ar,d stand by him, and with godlike for
