Scrofula, or King's Evil,
is a constitutional disease, a corruption of the
blood, by which this fluid heroines vitiated,
weak, and poor. Being in the circulation, it
pervades the whole body, and may burst out
an disease on any port 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, 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 fim 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 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 far less power to with
stand the attacks of other diseases; conse
quently. vs.r umuliers perish bv disorders
which, although not T . .
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,
end, 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 remcdials that have
been discovered for the expurgation of this foul
disorder front 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 Enurtiva
Butteries, BLAINS and BOILS, Tottons, Tar=
ituntuassuus, SYPHILITIC and MERCURIAL Dui-
EASES, DROPSY, Dysrarsts, DEBILITY, and,
TED Ott Imports lltoon. The popular belief
in inumerityqf the blood" is founded in truth,
for scrofula is a degeneration of the blood. The
particular purpose and virtue of this Sarsapa
rilla is to purify and regenerate this vital fluid,
without which sound health is impossible in
contaminated constitutions.

Sunday School Celebration.
It teas toy privilege recently to attend a
Sunday School celebration, which awa
kened on interest and produced nn impres•
sion such no it seldom has been toy prin..
lege to witness. A brief account of the
same, we think, cannot fail to interest your
many readers, nut , wo trust awaken a deep.
or interest among them in behalf of the S.
S. cense. This celebrition was held on
Wednesday, September 14th, in n beauti.
lul grove, on the farm of M r. Pomeroy, nt
the foot of Tuscarora mountain, near Elaine
mills, Tell fp., in the southeastern corner
oar county—almost on the identical epos
ritn tint enti Juniata
Franklin, Perry and tenet. Tins
ground hod recently been occupied by a
Methodist comp tneeiiug and many of the
tents were yet standing.. The day tans'
beautiful, a worm, bright sun, and a gen
tle breeze. Arrangements had been made
for all the schools co meet at the Presbyte
rian church, of Upper Tuscarora Volley, •
of which the Rev. G. Van Artsclalen is the
Stated Supply, and who has borne a con
spicuous part to getting up this celebration.
About sine o'clock the schools began to
arrive in large wagons, drawn by four, six
and eight horses. But such wagons ! and
such loads of living freight we never saw
before. Our school, just established this
summer, In a destitute place, numbered
one hundred and nine teachers and schol
ars, and these were all brought in two
wagons. The wagons were all beautifully
decked with evergreens, and the horses
adorned with flags. Some schools came •
singing beautiful hymns, whilst others
brought the beautiful, soul-stirring music
of the fife and drum. One delegation af
ter another arrived, till the whole co tupas
around the church, •sins one dense mass of
human beings. And still they come !
Excitement was now raised to the high
est pitch. The walls and valh-ys echo
with the martial music of fife and drum,
C.,. chief marshal rides to and fro through
the crowd making arrangements for the
starch and giving the word of command; '
the banners and Flags float upon the breeze
whilst the eyes of hundreds of children
sparkle with delight, and clap'd their little
hands for joy, saying one to soother. 'this
is:the celebration.' Indeed, Mr. Editor, it
was worth a ride fifteen or twenty miles,
to witness the enthusiasm manifested.--
One individual remarked to us, he canto
forty miles, and was amply compensated.
About ten o'clock the word of command
was given to march to the camp ground—
about a mile distant. This parade was
perhaps the most Imposing spectacle of
the day, and much credit is due to Col.
Noss, of Nosavil l e, Chief Marshal, for the
good order observed. Firet in the march
was the Band, followed by the Orators of
the day ; then came the choir; next the
b ctiouls—thirteen in number, defiled in
regukir order, followed by hundreds of cit.
icons, and a long train of vehicles, the
whole not less than half a mile in length.
By actual count it anti founa there were
over eight hundred chiniren in the lino of
march. Each teacher accompanied their
class. Each school was headed by NI op
propiate tanner, not expensive, yet beautl
ful and neat, ornament'dvery tastefully with
evergreen and flowers. Several of these
banners had inscribed on them beautiful
mottoes. We noticed the following : 'Suf.
,fer little children to come unto me.' In
- --
- -
the name of God we will pet up our ban
ner.' Choose you this day, whom you
will nerve.' 'Feed my lambs.' 'The fear
of the Lord, is the beginning of wisdom.'
On ono we observed, the simple, but em
phatic motto, 'Onward.' On another, two
hearts entwined together, and over them
the word 'Union.' Not the least interesting
reature In the procession, was a band of lit
tle girls dressed in white, and beautifully
decked with myrtle and roses. We saw
one little girl in the possession, wto, we
were informed, had committed to memory,
this summer, ihe New Testament as far ns
Gallatians, and she hopes to complete the
book before ti`;t+ school closes in the full.—
This is one of tits bles,?!! effects flowing
from Sunday Schools. The 01415 9f the
young are richly stored with the plYciou3
truths of God's word, which are as a lamp
in their path throagh all the journey of life.
The religious exercises of the day, were

mencing with
"We meet again in gladnes9,

prayer was offered appropriate to the'occtt.
lion, in which all united. Several addres.
ces were delivered, varying in style and
ability, but each adapted to do good, and
was well received by the large and atten,
nye audience. 'nine cod sphco will not
allow us to notice these particularly; we
pimply remark they were worthy of the
men, the theme and the occasion.
The interests of the occasion was great
ly increased by the excellent performance
of the choir, of which all spoke in praise.
There was a spirit about their singing
we seldom hear. And when we sung the
parting hymn,
"How pleasant thus to dwell below,
In the fellowship of love;
And 'hough we part, is bliss to know,
The good shall meet shore."

passed to mar the beauty of the scene, and
those who were engaged resolved to devote
themselves more entirely to the Sunday

highly pleased with the order of the day,
For the "Journal."
Mn. EntTon—On the 2nd inst. we had
the ;treasure of attending n Sunday School
celebration, at Mai klesburg , and happy to
say, in our estimation was one 'hut was
hard to outpace, considering the opposition
welt which it was attended in gating it up.
We understand that quite a number of ob
jections were formed by those who opposed
it—one of which was, that it was gotten
up by '"a few strips of boys, who had no
authority to do so," Now the question oc
curs, Who sustains and carries on the Sun
day School ir, the vicinity of Marlclesburg?
We think we are safe in replying that it is
none other than those so called boys, who
ore now censured ns being the Instigation
of tho pest celebration. If this is nll the
objection that can be made, we say—Sue
ces's to the boys. We again say if the ol•
der portion of the Sunday School patrons
have so shamefully fniled to comprehend
the benefits of the'Sundny School cause,
and have stooped so low as to censure and
ridicule those who are endeavoring to in•
street and encourage the young, that they
tire firstly resenting the principles of the
original American. And last but not least
if those persons fail in the future as they
certainly have in the past to instruct the
young in obtaining a moral education;
these young med must nail undoubtedly
will take their places as teachers nnd pa
trons of the glorious Sunday School cause.

ALd how ho made hie Fortune,
It was towards the end of September,
1793, after having npyeaied to all nations
to engage in breaking the scepter of ty
ranny, the French Convention raised and
dispersed over Europe an army of three
hundred thousand men, destined to serve
as a support to its revolutionary doctrines.

A German prince, the Landgravo of
Hesse-Cassel, seeing the revolutionary flag
on the borders of his State, had sufficient
courage and coolness "not" to imitate
those who runaway with empty pockets.
Ho packed up his diamonds, with two or
three millions of tiders, and took the road
to Frankford, where he thought he would
be able to place his fortunes securely.—
Once arrived in the old imperial city, he
hUrried to the dbiellint of a petty . Jewish
banker, named Meyer Rothschild' who
had more children than dollars, but was a
skillful archeologist:

Immediately afterwards Frankford cur'
rendered to the French troops, and Meyer
Rothschild was completely ruined. Like
the ph4.utx , he rose, however, front the
ashes of his former self, and became richer
titan ever; but the Landgrave's property
remained untouched.

A financial alliance had been organized
by, the brothers, embracing the five capi
tals of Europe— Frankfort, Vienna, Na
ples, London and Paris. Their house lent
to the Russian and Austrian Emperors, to
the Kings of Prussia, England, Denmark,
Naples and Sardinia.
They were informed of the least fluctua
tion in public funds of different commer
cial head-quarters. They only operated
in what was. certain, and their operations
were wrapped in impenetrable secrecy, a
sure guarantee of success in speculation.
Nothing could now arrest these Jews,
they were the creditors of kings, and of
nations. From one end of the cominent
to the other, kings loaded them with hon

posterity of both sexes enab..ed by letters

of Prussia, and the Grand Duke of Iless.e.
Darmstadt received them among their Aulic
counsellors. All kinds of orders and cros
ses were worn by these children of Israel
-and the haughty autocrat of the north
ioaded thein with titles arid with respect.
Three of the sons of old Meyer seem to
have inherited his genius in financial mat
ters, Nathan, Solomon and James.
Nathan made a fortune of thirty million
francs, which he quadrupled by the inva
sion of 1815. This celebrated financit.r
died in 18d0.
James Rothschild wished at' one time
to cause his wile to be received at court,
(he had married his o•vn niece, the dough.

of marriage is authorized by the law of
Moses. This ,ady—Madame de Rothschild

black islands which after a tints rise up
above the surface. Look at the great jets
they blow up over their backs, and listen
to the deep breath of pleasure or the shrill
flourish of delight with which they lie down
ou the sand while their attendants knead
them all over. These great creatures are
so sagacious, so sensitive to kindness, that
even in their wild state I cannot feel any
sympathy for those who delight to killing
them and calling it 'sport.' But these ele
phants, fond as I am of them, are, it must
be admitted, dangerous playmates. In our
