Scrofula, or King's Evil,
a constitutional disease, a corruption of the
blood, by which this fluid becomes vitiated,
weak, and poor. Doing in the circulation, it
pervades the whole body, and may burst out
in disease on any part of it. No organ is free
Atom its attacks, nor is there one which it may
not destroy. The scrofulous taint is variously
eausod by mercurial disease, low living, dis
ordered or unhealthy food, impure air, filth
and filthy habits, the depressing vices, and,
'bore all, by . the venereal infection. What
ever be its ongin, it is hereditary in the con
stitution, descending " from parents to children
unto the third and fourth generation ;" indeed,

blood of corrupt or ulcerous matter, which, in
the lunge liver, and internal organs, is termed
tuberclee ; in the glands, swellings; and on
the surface, eruptions or sores. This foul cor

the energies of life, so that scrofulous constitu

plaints, but they have far less power to with

svhieb, although not scrofulous in their nature,
are still rendered fatal by this taint in the
system. Most of the consumption which de
cunstcs the human family has ite•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.

OVER THE RIVER
Over the river they beckon to me,
Loved ones who've crossed to the farther side;
The gleam of their snowy robes I see,
But their voices are lost in the dashing tide.
There's one with ringlets of sanity gold,
And eyes the reflection of heaven's swn blue;
He crossed in the twilight gray and cold,
And the pale mist hid him front mortal view.
We saw not the angels tuba met hint there—
The gates of the city we could not see ;
Over the river, over the river,
My- brother stands waiting to welcome me.
Over the ricer, the boatman pale,
Carried another, the household ; .
Her brown curls moved in the gentle gale—
Darling Minnie 1 I see her yet.
• She crossed on her bosom her dimpled hands,
And fearlessly entered the phantom bark ;
We felt it glide front the silver sands,
And all our sunshine grew strangely dark.
We know cbs is safe on the further side,
Where all the ransomed and angels be;
Over the ricer, the mystic river,
My childhood's idol is waiting for me.
For none return from those quiet shores,
cross with the bt atman cold and pale;
We fi n , t!!e dip of the golden oars,
And eaten g 'leatn of the snowy sail ;
And lo! they have p:m74 from yearning hearts,
They cross the stress, r:2ic Are Pee for ace;
We may not sunder the veil api,:r
That hides from our vision the gateiir
We only know that their barks uo more
May sail with us o'er life's stormy sea ;
Yet somewhere, I know, on the unseen shore,
They watch, and beckon and wait for me.
And I sit and think when the sunset's gold
I's flushing river and hill, and shore,
I shall one day stand by the water cold,
And list for the sound of the boatman's our;
I shall watch for a gleam of the flapping soil,
I shall hear the boat as it gains the stiwtal,
I shall pass from sight with the boatman pale,
To the better shore of the spirit-land.
I shall know the loved who 110S0 gone before,
And joyfully sweet will the meeting be,

those dark. fiery natures which makes love
a wild terrible passion.
How much money was necessary to
make hint her•equal in the eyes of her
worldly father? The aubergiste named
the sum. It was large and Henri sighed,
and felt more despair at his heart than ev

tecollection that he had youth and genius

metropolis of France.
It was a long, long journey from eir•

of the period when Henri Du Bar., 'wide
it; and it nes nearly two weeks before he
reached the gay capital. And then began
his struggles with poverty, which clung to
him in spite of his hopes, his exertions and
his prayers, for six weary months; when
he gave up in despair, and secretly left
the city, to beg his way back to Circassone
see his Lucille once more, bid her an eter

through Lyons, foot sore, ragged and die

deceitfulness; pleasure, with its gilded
temptations, are gone ; and alone, in utter

valley of the shadow of death!
