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, h seems to be the rod of Him who says, "1 sill 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 lunge liver, and internal organs, is termed tuberclee ; in the glands, swellings; and on the surface, eruptions or sores. This foul cor ruption, which genders in the blood, depressor the energies of life, so that scrofulous constitu tions not only suffer from scrofulous com plaints, but they have far less power to with stand the attacks of other diseases; conse quently, vast numbers perish by disorders 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. *Odom and their health is undermined byit. To cleanse it from the system we must renovate the blood by an alterative medicine, and in. vigorate it by healthy food and exercise. inset 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 cora. blued from the most active remedials that have teen discovered for the expurgation of this foul disorder from the blood, and the reecue of the system from its destructive consequences. Bence it should be employed for the cure of not only scrofula, but also those other aft., 1101111 which arise from it, such as BRUPI,II pa Boise DISELEES, BT.

The popular belief impurity of the blood" le founded in truth, for ecrofula is a degeneration of the blood. The particular purpose and virtue of this Sareapa tills ie to purify and regenerate this vital fluid, without which sound health is impossible in sontaminated constitutions. Ayer's Cathartic Pills, MR ALL THE PURPOSES OF A FAMILY PHYSIC, are so composed that disease within the range of %lick action can rarely withstand or evade them Their penetrating properties aearch, and cleanse, and invigorate every portion of the human organ tam, correcting its diseased action, and restoring its healthy vitalitiee. As a consequence of these propertiee, the invalid who is bowed down with pain or physical debility is astonished to find his bealtlt t energy restored by a remedy at once so :.'.d Not only do they cure the every-day complaints of every body, but also many formidable and dangerous diseases.

SELEZT PGETRY.r., 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, Wino, over the river, the peaceful rivet, The Angel of Death shall carry.me. STZLE-ST A STRANGE RETRIBUTION Henri Du Barre, a young French rir t,t, became enamored of the only &nigh. ter of a well to do autiergiste in the town of eircossono, in the South of France.— Lucille Montaigne hod beauty and money. and Henri Du Barre, had wit and talent ; but these latter were nu fair equivalent for the former in the eyes of the purse proud father, who declared that no dough ter of his should merry a poor earth, though he were blessed with the wisdom of Solo mon. Now Lucille loved Henri—at leant elm told him so—but she was too prudent to elope with him and rink disinheritance; for, after all, what was love without money?— poverty, coating in at the door would send it (bin through tho window. Poor Heart was in despair. He really did love Lucille, whether she did hint or not—loved her madly; and his was one of 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 er. Suddenly he brightened up with the tecollection that he had youth and genius and that in some Irrge city, Paris, per haps, where the latter would be apprecia• ted, he might acquire both fortune and fame But would Lucille wait?—well, Lucille was willing to vruit awhile—for just them as she admitted to herself, she could thick duo one she liked better than the poor artiste; but everything earthly must have a limit, and the fair coquette thought her patience ought not to extend beyond a year. . _ .1 year is a very short limo (or a man to acquire fame and fortune, with the lat ter depending on the former; but Henri was young, and youth is sanguine, and al all events he would make n trial , hoping great things, and knowing that he could do no worse than fail. So he finished his engagements hur riedly, declined any new ones, sold a few pictures on hand, for a moderate aunt, gathered together his scanty effects, bode his friends end Lucille adieu, with a hope ful but heavy heart, set off for the great metropolis of France. It was a long, long journey from eir• cassette to Paris in the slow cenveyances 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 nal adieu, and end a life no longer of any value to its possessor. . _ Henri IA Barre set out from Paris afoot and alone, depending solely upon char'ty of French peasants fot food and lodging Ile had six sous in his pocket when he started, and these he invested in a deadly poison. which he carried no a dernier re port, determined not to suffer beyond what nature might reasonablv bear, but which it was Ids hope to retain till Ito had again seen Lucille. In this manner he reached and passed through Lyons, foot sore, ragged and die heartened—an object indeed Mr commiser ation. Twenty leagues beyond Lyons, its passing t h rough a long, dark, lonely wood, he met a Jew, carrying a heavy pack on his luck. The poor artist asked the Isra elite for charity, his appeal was answered by a few coins, for which he thanked the giver and then offered to carry hie pack. “ LIBERTY AND UNION, NOW AND FOREVER, ONE AND INSEPARABLII. ” HL NTINGPON, PA., W li.:I)NESDAY.

They have. broken the ranks of the slave party, and opened adeor of hope for the future and early triumph of Republican principles in that State. The battle has been gallantly fought and a cheering victory won, although the sweep may not lie as clean as was hoped for by the more sanguine of the free Democracy. The St. Louis Democrat of the 3d, says We publish this morning returns of the election, as fur as received, and if they, disap point our most sanguine hopes, they at the same time give undoubted assuraace of a sub st,tial victory to the freedemocracy and their allies. Out of fourteen candidates, we have electtd ten, including a majority of the Board of Commissioners. The four candidates elec. ted on the other side are not indebted for their sueeess to the strength of the' likttional democ racy. These candidates were on three or four regularly formed tickets, exclusive of the Na ' Ronal democratic. ticket. They were on the American ticket, on the Independent ticket, on the Citizen's ticket nod on the Workingman's ticket. We thoroughly appreciated the motive which gave rise to the formation of these tick ets, and we informed the public repeatedly that their effect would be to give aid to the Nation. al Democratic ticket.

FINE FUR UNLAWFUL CUMMUNICATION FITE! A Juana.—On Monday last, in Charleston, S. C., Thomas M. Hume was fined five hundred dollars fur conversing with a jurcr in regard to a capitol case he was sitting on, and Chat les B. Kanapaux, Deputy Sheriff, tato called the ju ror out to see Hume, was fined one hundred darns. These penal proceedings were under a rule for contempt of Coutt. flume stated to Kanupaux that he wanted to see the juror, Ad am E. Gibs, n, for the purpose of ascertaining, for the information of his wife, whether he would be kept out all night.—Kanapaux there. upon ordered the juror to be called out, and lime after speaking to Gibson about family affitirs began to talk about the ease the jury were deliberating on. He told Gibson that he understood the jury good six to nix, and that he (Gibson) was in laver of bonging Mitchell the prisoner on trial. He also said why don't you find the prisoner guilty? fir there is an outcry among the citizens of Charleston that you don't find hitn guilty." Mr. Fume prompt. Iv paid his own fine, and that of the - Deputy I Sheriff. its' The Hon. Linn Boyd has written a letter with a view to the recent election in Kentucky, in which he declares himself as follows, on one of the groat questions of the day .t By the legislation of Congress, it is clearly thO right and duty of the Territorial Legisla ture to give adequate protection to persons and property ( slaves included) in the Territories, and I earnestly and most confidently hope that the duty will be so performed, as that no ocea• sion trill ever arise for an appeal to Congress ou that subject. If, however, doomed to dis• appointment in this hope, and from bad faith on the part of the people of the Territories, the rights of slaveholders should be disregarded and outraged, I trust that very few trill be found to deny that to Congress belongs the power and the duty to offer just protection.''

NO. 34, SABBATHEIat:DIN& LIFE IS FADING, Time is drawing nearer, nearer, While,our heads are turning gray ; Tears are falling on life's mirror Every day I Time is closing Beauty,s portals, Flowers are blooming to decay; Fate is delving graves for mortals Every day I While our pleasure boat is rolling Over life's eventful spray, Funeral bells are tolling, tolling Every day I While the laurel-wreath is shading O'er the fume lit brow of clay, Sad we see the garlands Ming Every day I Love, then take your promised treasures, Fame is dazzling to betray; Life is fading with its pleasures, Every day I Hence, while all things are declaring, Death a seeker for his prey, Let us be ourselves preparing Every day I "LET ME DIE QUIETLY." "Be still—males no noise—let me die qui etly."—lice President King. Be still 1" The hour of the soul's de parture is nt hand ; earth is fading from its vision. Time is gliding from its present I Hopes that cluster around young life, that swell in the bosom of manhood, have fal len from around it like the forest leaves, when the frosts of autumn have chilled them unto death. Ambition, with its hol low promises, and pride, with its lofty look, have vanished away. The world, with its deceitfulness; pleasure, with its gilded temptations, are gone ; and alone, in utter destruction of all that time promised, it must start on its solemn journey across the valley of the shadow of death! tt Make no noise I" Let the tumult of life cease, Let no sound break the soul's communal with itself ere it starts on ite roturnless flight. Trouble it not with cc. cents of sorrow. Let the tear stand still on the cheek of aflection, and let not the wailing of grief break the solemn silence of the death scene. Let it gather the ac cents that come from within the dark shad ow of eternity, saying to it, coma home.— Afar off the music came floating to it in the air 'Tie the sound of heavenly harps touched by viewless fingers Mar not the harmony by the discord of earth. " Let tne• die quietly I" Tho commo• lions of life, the strife and warring with human destiny, are over. Wealth accu mulated must be scattered ; honors won must bu resigned ; end all the triumphs that come within range of human achieve .nents must be thrown away. The past, its trial-u, it: transgressions, its accumula ted responsibilities, its clinging memories, its vanished hopes, is rendering up to the future account; disturb net the quiet of that awful reckoning. Speak not of fa ding memories, of affections whose ob jects perish in their lovlinesa, like flowers of spring, or wither inn slow decay. Talk not of an early home where loved ones lin ger, where a seat will soon be vacant, a cherished voice hushed forever, or of the desolation that will scat itself by the hearth. stone. The soul is at peace with God; let it pass calmly away. Heaven is opening upon its vision. Thu bright turrets, the tall spires, the holy domes of the Eternal City are emerging from the sceptre' dark ness, and the glory of the Most High Is dawning around them. The white throne is glistening in the distance, and the white. robed angels are beckoning the weary spit.- it to its everlasting home. Whet is life tart it should be clung to longer ? What are the joys of the world that they should be regretted ? What hag earth to place beforo the spirit of a wan to tempt its stay or turn tt from its eternal rest ?—Register, I'M SAFE• An iiihdel who was traveling, and who was uverteken by nightfall in a lonely and dangerous place, confessed that he was re lloved of his fears of being assassinated, where the owner of tha cabin where ha had taken abetter, led the family in prayer before retiring to rest.—The infidel slept soundly after such a manifestation of Chris t ianny. . . . . . In exercising hospitality to a clergyman who arrived at a dwelling late in the eve ning, the heads of the house surrendered to him their own chamber. Their little daughter. three years of age, was asleep in the crib, and they concluded not to die m b her,. Quite early in the morning she awoke, and looking toward the bed usual ly occupied by her parents, saw a stranger there. At first she WaLl startled, and cov ered her head with the counterpane.— Soon, however, she peeped out and said: —"Man do you pray to Godf" "Yes," was the answer, "1 love God, and pray to him every day." This satisfied the little inquirer; shy smiled, turned over, and dropped asleep. Herts.—The velvet moss will grow upon the sterile rock, the mistletoe flourish on the withered branch, the ivy cling to the inould ,, ring ruin, the pine and cedar re main fresh and fadeless, amid the mute ions of the dying year; and, heaven be praised! something green, something beau tiful to see, and grateful to the soul, will, in the coldest and darkest hour of fate, still twine its tendrils around the altar and bro ken arches of the desolate temples of the human heart ! IlllrTight hard against a hasty temper Anger will come, but resist it strongly. A spark may set a house on fire. A fit of passion may give you cause to mourn all the days of your life. Never revenge an injury.
