Scrofula, or King's Evil,
la a fonittUutiorml discaw, a corruption of tlie
blood, by which this, lluid become vitiated,
weak, nutl poor, living in the circulation, it
pervades the whole body, and may burst out
in diicftso oil any part of it. No orgnn is free
from its attneks,' nor is there one winch it may
not; destroy. The scrofulous taint is variously
caused by mercurial digenne, low living, dis
ordered or unlionltliy food, impure- sir, tilth
and filthy huliits, the depressing vices, and,
above all, by the venereal infection. What
ever bo its origin, it is hereditary in the con-'
st i tut ion, descending ' front parents to children
unto the third ami fourth generation ; " indeed,
it sectns to l the rod of Him who says, "I
will visit the' iniuuitic of the father upon
their children."
Its effects commence by deposition from the
blood of corrupt or ulcerous matter, which, in
tho lung', liver, and internal organs, is termed
tubercles; in the glands, swellings; and on
tho sui'l'ut'c, eruption or sores. This foul cor
ruption, which genders in tho blood, depresses
the energies of life, so that scrofulous constitu
tions not only miH'it from scrofulous com
plaints, but they linva far less power to with
stand tho 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
hystcm. Mont of the consumption which de
cimates the human family has its origin directly
in this scrofulous contamination; and many
destructive diseases of the liver, kiuneys, Oram,
and, indeed, of all the organs, arise trom or
aro aggravated by the same cause.
One quarter of all our people are scrofulous ;
their persons are invaded by this lurking in
fection, uud their health is undermined by it.
To cleanse it from tho system we must renovate
the blood by an alterative medicine, and in
vigorate it by healthy food and exercise.
Such a medicine wo supply in
; AYER'S
Compound Extract of Sarsnparilla,
the most ctTectual remedy which the medical
skill of our times con devise for this every
where prevailing and futnl maladv. It is com
bined from the most active remctlials that have
been discovered for the expurgation of this foul
disorder from the blood, and the rescue of the
srstem from its destructive consequences.
llence it should be employed for the cure of
not only ficrofula, uut nlso those other ejec
tions which arise from it, such ns Enur-nvB
and Skin Diseases, St. Anthony's Fiub,
Rose, or Erysipelas, Pimples, Pustules,

in " himurilti of the blood" is founded in truth,
for nTol'uht is it degeneration of the blood. The
particular purpose and virtue of this Sarsapa
lillu is to purify and regenerate this vital lluid,
without which toiuid health is impossible in
contaminated constitutions.

Education and Civilization in the
Middle Ages.
Tbe moderns are apt to underrate the dark
agea. Because tbere was no newspaper mess,
because printing bad not been discovered, be
cause comparatively little was Known or docks,
we too hastily conclude tbat snperstttiotr, igno
rance, brutality and barbarism reigned para,
mount, not only over tbe serfs, but over the cp-
per classes also. ' To some extent, indeed, this
Idea ia correct. But the difference between tbe
nineteenth and twelfth centuries really consists
less ia the higher standard of education enjoyed
bv the former than its more popular diffusion.
It would be difficult to snow a cotemporary. aia
lectician superior to Abelard,- an orator more
powerful than St. Bernard, Or intellectual gladi
ators as suptie ae me scnooimen. ' is is true
that the physical solences are better Understood
now than tbey were then, ana so isr rortn moa
era times are ia advance of medieval ones;
but in otber departments of education we do not
transcend tbe feudal days as much as we sup
pose. Our real advantages are, that what Is ac
quired now is never lost, because printing suc
cessfully perpetuates tt; sod that book leaning,
instead of belfg confined, as tbsn, to ;the rich
er classes, or to obureomeo, is avanaoie to au.
But even the degree to which knowledge was
dissemlpated throughout the community in tbe
feudal times, ras been generally mieunaeratooa
Learning seems to have fluctuated as cation
enjoyed more or leea'of feaob. Just ae, during
the wars of the first Nspolooo, literature gave
place to the military spirit, so, ia the- more
troubled portions of the middle, agea, U seems
to hare suffered from similar caaaea-'vBat at
Other periods;' or In particular localities, when
there bappeoea to uw a toug peace,- uanuug
flourished with a vigor for which generally e
modem do not clvethoa times credit. : It lea
historical fact tbat the students of Oxford frex
quently numbered thirty thousand, tbat swarms
of followers listened to' Abelard at Paris, that
the doctors of SalamaiMawera famous through
out Europe, and that the soheols of Italy were
crowded with learner. In tha republican com
munities of tbat day in: Florence, Pisa- and
otber peninsular towns, ror example the citi
zens could nest1y read and write, and enjoyed
generally a high degree of teflaement and oir
ilisallon. " Later, tba republican towns of Flan
ders and Holland exhibited a aimllar spectacle.
The first prodaoed Dante and tha great palav
ers. Tbe last gave birth to those mighty spirits
who founded the Dutch Republic, and laid tbe
corner-stones or English and American liberty.
But If the middle ages had area beea -nor
Ignorant than tbey were, tbey performed a ser
vice, lo one respect, wbloh oan not fee igeored
It was to tboie age that we owe much of that
sentiment of personal ihdeseadtnea wbloh dis
tinguishes' the . modem Irons the aoeieot world.
Tba Roman emprrafetl, out marely, as uedo
be popularly taught, beoausa tho Goths asallr
ed It, but beeatta IS was socially as wen as po
luinAii. nttn an the vary aor a Thai Idea
tbat a mighty empire,' each as tbat of Rome
thtu was, should succumb to a foreign Invader,
while It was healthy and sound, Is a manifest
absurdity. The truth was that wealth bad be-
some concentrated Into a few bands only, that r
selfishness had oompUlely oorrupted all olassef, v
and that the poor were In snch a hopeless con
dition that tbey had less to dread from new '
masters than from tbe old; and it was the weak- I
bees of tbo commonwealth, caused by these
things, which made the empire so easy a prey .
to the Invader, Bat when thadeluca hadawont
over the ancient order of things, when rich and
poor alike were washed into one common alia
vlum, and when the seede of tha aantimant of .
personal liberty, which the Northern nations
bad brought with tbem , and scattered abroad,
had germinated, then arose that new civilisa
tion wblcb we now enjoy, and wbosa distin
guishing characteristic, ai compared with that
of the old world, Is tbe sense of personal lode-'
pendence. - ..
If we consider civilization to consist solel in .
marble palaces, sumptuous furniture, and
generally in luxury, then tbe middle ages were
undoubtedly inferior to tbe Roman world,
tboogb, even Id the middle ages, mora ot tbe
luxury and refinement of tha old world was
retained, at least In Italy and the south of
France, than is usually believed But If wa
regard civilization as consisting In hlgherthlnca
personal Independence or political freedom-
men ma miaaie ages tax rank above that of
tbe ancient world. For even tbe republics of
tbe old time taught liberty, lees as a personal
right than as tbe privilege of a elass. It was
not as a man, but as ao Athenian, that tha
Greek voted la the public assembly. It was
became be was a member of bis tribe or order,
that the free oltizen of Rome bad a voioe In tha
State, and not bectuia be was a human being,
gifted with aa immortal soul, and endowed by
bis Creator witb tbe Inalienable rights of life,
liberty and tbe pursuit of happiness. It is time
that we moderns were mora just to both tbe
learning and tbe civilization of the middle agea.
PhilMphi Ledger.
An Hour at the Headquarters of
Gen. Scott.
[From the Chicago Tribune, 24th.]
a friend who bas just returned from
Washington, we have been listening to a vivid
description of the scene, now a daily one, in one
ot the lofty apartments of tbe War Offloe wtere
General Scott passes many honra of the day
and rilgnl, at a time oi lite when moet men
naturally court ease, bat which the old hero is
now devoting to tbe greatest achievements of
his eventful and honorable career, the demon,
stration of tbe strength and power of a republi
can form of government.
Enfeebled ia body, bat clear mioded and vig
orous In intellect as ever, General Scott ia now
cheerfully undergoing labors that would over
tax tbe strength or many far bis juniors in life
and in service. Ao early bour of tbe day finds
him surrounded by bis aids and advisers, andjaot
until a late bour ol the nlgbt does tbe work
eesae. I be bustle snd din ot tbe city snd camp
Is bushed at nightfall, bnt not for many boars
later does the headquarters of the Lieutenant
General lose its features of activity.
The scene on tbe day la question was one on
which the pencil of Leutie would dwell lov
ingly to the production of a painting that should
be vivid history. General Scott, suffering more
than usual by an attack or gout, lay ball reclin
ing upon a lounge, drawn into the center of tbe
large apartment, hie feet restiog upon pillows,
(not tbe Pillow or Tennessee, upon whom, it tbe
fellow doee not retreat to a ditch, he will set bis
foot presently.)
About tbe old chieftain, whose maxlre frame
seemed more impressive from tbe contrast, were
gathered men in uniform ot army and navy, emi
nent citisens ia the plain black civilian' drees,
with here and there one whose diets and fea
tures told of rough ssrrlce on some errsnd,
wbosa results were now to be reported to tbe
modification or extension of some one or other
of the vast comprehensive plana of the War De
partment. - Oa the wall opposite tbe lounge oocapted by
Gen. Scott were suspended two large military
mars of Virginia and Maryland, witb all their
carefal details. ololy presenting tbe country,
Its features, acoesaee, fastnesses and approaches.
It was noticeable tbat about Harper's Perry,
Riobmond and Norfolk were drawn large cir
cles, within which tbe details became more mi
nute, witb symbols and signs abundant, of sig
nificance to military men, tbe key to wblcb be
longs to tbe warumce.
By General Scott's side lay along light reed,
which be made use of ia pointing to different
localities on tbeee maps. Aids, amanuenses,
advisers, all were busy, quietly and all without
stir or contusion, lo that room and on sucn
scenes and consultations hang safely the fate
of this war in the speedy and condign punish
ment of traitors. Probably so one but tbe
hungrier of tbe Washington correspondents
will regret or fall to applaud tbe wisdom of the
War Department, or indeed of tho government
as a whole, in only sparingly admitting to con
fidence tbe newspapers and the general pubiij.
It is enough to know tbat the government is
thoroughly at work ia all its department for
theeruablng oat of treason, and that Gen. Scott
is indeed a close and voluntary ''prisoner" to
duties whose exeoution will make tbe setting
sun of tbe old hero illustrious ia all time. '
Little Alice and her Lover.
[From the London Times.]
Tha marriage of ber Majesty's second daugh
ter, the Princess Alice, Is an event which will
renew the good will which the British people
feel towards tbe reigning family: For four-and-twenty
years one sovereign has sat on tbe
throne of these kingdoms; a generation has
grown op which knows no other. In tbat time
many dangers, many causes of discontent and
internal dissension, have passed away, and it
may be said that tbere exists no government,
whether monarchical or republican, wbloh en
joys mors completely tbe affection of the gov
erned. To put attachment to tha Throne on tbe
ground of political satisfaction or material pros-
perlty may not aocord with tbe notions of some
loyalists; but it is the surest and most perma
nent basis which a rule' can hope for. Tbe good
will of tbe Eogliah people to tbe reigning house,
though partly the result of education and habit.
Is certainly in these times chiefly owing to the
belief that the present sovereign haa done ber
best to fulfill tbe dutlea traditional to ber sta
tion, and to adranoe tha Interests of tbe State.
Tbere is no clsss ia the community which feels
jealousy or dislike of the Court, snd consequent
ly tbe news that a daughter of the Royal home
, Is about to be allied witb an ancient and re-
peciiauie reiguiug iaauij,auu kuiuv wsivu
has been formed by tbe mutual Inclinations of
tbe pair, will be received witb einoere satisfac
tion. The marriage between Price Louis and
tbe Princess Alloe will, at any rate, not be one
of those unions arranged by diplomatists and
oonflrmed by family treaties, In which the per
sons most nearly Interested have no voice, and
must meet for the first time when the die haa
been Irrevocably east, and they are united fox
good or evil through life. The German Prince
and the Eogliah Princess have become maiaally
attached, aud marry at persona In a private sta
tion marry, to lurtuer their own osppioese.
Happily, the times are past when dynastio alli
ance were thought aaoeseary to eeeora a na-
tieaw greatness, and Parliament will display Its
?ood will, and generosity as muoh as if the
rince's husband had been choien by Minietere ot
State for purpose of the most subtle policy.
