Scrofula, or King's Evil,
ia a constitutional disease, a corruption of the
blood, by which this fluid become vitiated,
weak, and poor. Being in the circulation, it
pervadee 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 mav
not destroy. The scrofulous taint ia variously
causeu oy mercurial aisease, 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 Him 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 tho blood, depresses
the energies of life, so that scrofulous constitu
tions not only sutler from scrofulous com.
plaints, but they have fur less power to with.
stand tua attacKs of other diseases: conae-
qunntly vast numbers perish by disorders
which, ultliouh not scrofulous in their nature,
are still rendered fatal by this taint in the
RVHtcm. Most of tho consumption which de
cimates the human family has its origin directly
in this scrofulous contamination ; and many
destructive diseases of the liver, kidneys, brain,
nml, indeed, of nil the organs, arise from or
are aggravated by the same cause.
One quarter of all our people are scrofulous j

skill of our times can devise for this every,
where nreveilinir and fatal malndv. It in mm.
bincd from the most active rcmedials that have
been discovered for the expurgation of this foul
disorder from the blood, and the rescue of the
system ! from its destructive consequences.
Hence it ohould be employed for the cure of
not only Scrofula, but also those other affec
tions which arise from it, such as Eruptivk
nnd Skin Diseases, St. Anthony's Fike,

We aro enabled hero to offer the community a
remedy which, while it cure the above complaints
with 'certainty, is still perfectly harmless in any
qiinnlity. Such a remedy is invaluable in districts
where tlicso allHcting disorders prevail. This
"Ci'itR" expels the miasmatic poison of Feveb
and Aoce from the system, and prevents the de
velopment of the disease, if token on the first ap
proach of its premonitory symptoms. It is not only
the best remedy ever yet discovered for this class
of complaints, but also the cheapest. The large
quantity we simply for a dollar brings it within tho
reach of every body ; and in bilious districts, where
revolt and aoce prevail, every body should
have it nnd use it freely both for cure ana protec
tion. A great superiority of this remedy over any
other ever discovered for the speedy and certain
cure of Intermittcnts is that it contains no Quinine
or mineral, consequently it produces no quinism or
other injurious ellects whatever noon the constitu
tion. 'l hose cured by it are left as healthy as If
mev ana never nau me uisease.

originating in this cause, put on the intermittent
time, or become neriodicnl. This " Co nil " exnnla
the poison from the blood, and consequently cures
iiicui au suite, at is an lnvaiunnie protection to
immigrants and persons travelling or temporarily
residing in the malarious districts. If taken occa
sionally or daily while exposed to the infection,
that will be excreted from the system, and cannot
accumulate in sufficient quantity to ripen into dis
ease. Hence it is even more valuable for protec
tion than cure, and few will ever suffer from Inter
mittent! if they avail themselves of tbe protection
this remedy affords. '

Fortifications against Ships.
Fortifications against Ships. From the Richmond Dispatch.
The Baltimore American gives, from high
military authority, a detailed history of actions
between ships and fortifications, which Incon-
testably establishes the general rale that guns
asnore are superior to guns aaoat, ana that naval
expeditions are utterly impotent against a well
fortified coast.
In 1795 a British expedition was fitted out, at
an expense oi eight millions or dollars, against
Quiberoo, a port of tbe French coast. The bay
of Quiberoo is pronounced by Breoton, ia his
British Naval History, "the finest on the coast
oi r ranee, or perhaps in tbe world, lor landing
an army." Moreover, the inhabitants of the
oountry were in open iosarrection, and eager to
co-operate with me invaders. Ten thousand
soldiers were landed, and arms furnished to as
many more loyalist troops, but the combined
forces failed in their stuck upon the fortifica
tions, ana lien, rioobe, irom bis imtrencbmeuts,
with 7,000 men. held In check a bodv of 18.000.
fiennea up, without defense, in the narrow pen
nsula. In 1799 the Eoellsh and Russians made a de
toent npon Holland with fourteen ships of the
line and ten frirates. carrelnc about eleven
hundred guns and a great number of transports,
wiin an army oi thirty-ell tboueafjl men. The
defensive army consisted of only twenty-eight
thousand men. Besides their Immense moral
and military superiority, th invaders had the
eo-operation of the Orange party in assisting tbe
landing of their troops, and yet they failed to
get posession of a single strong place, and after
m oi six tnousana men, were compelled to
capitulate. "Such." sava AllUon. "vaa the
disastrous Issue of tbe greatest expedition which
had yet sailed from the British harbor during
us war. ian me united mates raise such
naval expedition against the South as that
against Holland, and if so, Is it likely to be more
successful against a united, than that was
against a divided people ?
In 1801 ihe illustrious Lord Nelson, the Na
poleon of the seas, with three shins oi the Una.
two frigates, and thirty five smaller vessel,
mnue a aesperaie attack npon the harbor of Bn
logne, but wag rennlsed with severe loss.
In 1809 the English fitted out an immense
naval expedition to leixe upon the French de
fense or the Scheldt. Flush ne. at the month
of the river, was but Ill-secured, and Antwerp,
sixty or lercnty miles further up, was entirely
defenseless at the time when Ihe British arriv
ed at Flushine. The British attacking lores
consisted of .twenty-seven ships of the line,
twenty turee frigates, thirty-three eloops-of-war,
thirty-eight gun, mortar and bomb vessels,
thirty tlx smaller vessels, eighty-two gun boats.
Innumerable transports, with over forty thous
and troops and an immense artillery train,
making In all, says the English historian, "an
hundred thousand combatants." Yet tbe fee
ble defenses at Flushing resisted successfully a
fire from the fleet, compared with which Freneh
officers, who bad been at Auaterlitg and Jena,
declared that the cannonade at those battles
was a mere jen dWaas, and were onlv re
duced by the land forces after a siege of eigh
teen days. Ia th mean time th fortifications
at Antwerp had been repaired, and after a fruit
less operation of a whole month la lb river,
th English were gradually forced to retreat to
the mouth of the Scheldt, and finally to evacn.
at their entire conquest. Such was tbe reault
of an expedition comprising a naval force more
man three tiroes to number of all th ahina In

than five times tbe combatants ol the whole

- In 1792, a large French squadron attacked
Caellara, whose defense were so dllacidated aa
oaroeiy to aeserv tne name, out, after a bom
bardment of three days, was signally defeated.
and obliged to retire

Alter a Domoarament oi two hours and a half,
the ships were forced to haul off with consider
able damage and loss of life, while tbe fortifi
cations and the garrison were unharmed. Here
were on hundred and six runs afloat aeainat
one on shore, and yet tbe latter was successful.
In 1797, Kelson attacked tbe little, inefficient
batteries of Santa Crux, in Teneriffe, with eight
vessels, oarrying four hundred guns. He was
repelled with a loss of two hundred and fifty
men, while tb garrison reeelved little or no
damage. A single ball from the land bittery,
striking the side of one of his vessels, instantly
sunk ber with all aboard.
Ia 1801, tbe French, with three frigates and
six thousand men, were beaten off from the
poorly oenstrnoted works of Porto Ferralro,
which bad a garrison oi oniy nueen hundred
In July of the earn year, an English fleet, oar
rying five hundred and two guns, attacked the
French land battery of Algesiros, of only twelve
guns, and was compelled to retreat with great
loss.
In 1803. th English garrison of Diamond
Rock, near Port Royal Bay, with only one hun
dred men and fifteen guns, repelled, without tbe
less of a eioKl man, a trench tqngdron of two
seventy-fours, a frigate and a brig, assisted by
land attack of two nunarea troop. The
French lost fitv men.
Ia 18U6 a trench Dattery on uape Lloost, of
only one gun and a garrison of twenty-five men,
resisted, without toe loss of a man, toe attack
of a British elghty-guo ship and two frigates,
carrying la all over on hundred and fifty guns
ana about one tnousana tnree nunarea men.
Th assailants lost thirty-seven men killed and
wounded, and the eighty gun ship was mnoh
disabled.
In 1808 a French land battery of only three
guns, near tort Trinidad, drove off an Jboglish
seventy-four-gun ship and a bomb vessel.
In 1813 Leghorn, with weak defenses and
garrison, drove off an Eogllsh squadron of aix
ships, carrying over three hundred guns and
thousand troops.
In faot, the whole history ol th wars of tb
French Revolution la one continued proof of
tbe tnperiority of fortifications as a maritime
frontier defense. Tbe aeacoaet of Franoe is
only eighteen and a half miles from Eogland at
the narrowest place of the Channel; it mu
dotted with rich commercial towns, offering
dagxllng booty; the French navy was incompe
tent to their defense; tne English navy was
supported at aa annual expense of ninety mil
lions or oonars, was continually cruising witn
in aieht of French seaports, bad acquired an
Intimate knowledge of the Freneh harbors,
bays and creeks; the Frenoh barbers and town,
stripped of their garrisons by neeessltlea of
distant wars, wer left with no other defense
than their fortifications and militia; and yet,
though they were frequently attacked, and the
moat desoerate efforts made to effect a nerma
nent lodgment, they escaped unharmed during
tbe entire contest. .
The history of naval attaoki on our own forts
the wars of the Revolution and 1813, teaoh
et ns the same lesson. Ia 1776 Sir Peter
Parker, with nine vessels, earrying two hund
red and seventy guns, was rspulsed by Fort
Moultrie, armed with only twenty-six cunt, and
garrisoned by three hundred and seventy-fir
regular and a few militia. .The British were
entirely defeated, and lost in killed and wound
two hundred and five men, while the same
In th lord was only thirty -two-, Geo.
Moultrie said that only thirty rounds from the
battery wer fired, and the want of powder
alone prevented the Americana from destroying
whole fleet.
In 1814, Fort Boyer, a small redoubt near
Mobile, garrisoned by on hnndred and twenty
men, and having twenty small piece of can
non, tome or tnem a i most entirety useless,
completely repulsed a British fleet of four ves
sels, carrying ninety two guns, and five hund
red and ninety men, aided by a land foro of
twenty artillerist with two cannon and seven
hunlred sad, thirty Infantry., .Notwithstanding

this Immense disparity of force, th enemy was
completely foiled, on of tbe largest ships en
tirely destroyed, and eighty five men killed and
wounded, while the American loss waa onlv
eight or nine.
Again, In 1814 a batterv of one four-nonnder
and two eighteen pounder guns, at Stonlngtoo,
Connecticut, renewed a British fleet of one hnn.
dred and thirty-four guns. In consequence of
exhausting their ammunition, only part of the
Amerioan guns were used during a part of tbe
engagement, yet tbe ships were eo much Injured
that they were com Del led to withdraw with a
iois or twenty killed and more than fifty wound,
ed, while tb loss on onr side was bnt two kill
ed and six wounded.
Our readers ar all familiar with tbe miser
able attempt to attack Baltimore la the same
year. The rJiillsn fleet consisted of forty sail,
the largeit of which were ships of th line, carrying-
oyer aix thousand combatants. Sixteen
of the bomb vessels and fiigates bombarded Fort
mcnenry tor twenty fire hours, throwing nneen
hundred shells, four hundred of which exploded
within the wall of tbe (ort, but made no Im
pression. The British were compelled to haul
off with much loss.
Eauallv ineffectual waa the attack of a Brit
ish equidron in 1815, on Fort St. Phillip, on the
Missis sippi, a small work of only twenty guns, but
which repulsed the fleet after a eontinnous bom
bardment of nine days and nights.
Letter from Hon. Edward Everett.
The Boston Courier, of Friday, contains the
following private letter from Hon. Edward Ever
ett to a citixen of Virginia, which was banded
to its author:
BOSTON, May 15, 1861.
Mr Dxab Ma. : Your letter of th 9th
reached me yesterday. I read it with mingled
feelines, gratified that your friendly regard bad
yet survived the shook of the limes, and deeply
grieved at roe ainereat view we tax oi tne ex
isting crisis. .
It is well known to yon mat i sustained tne
South,' at the almost total sacrifice of influence
and favor at borne, so long as 1 thought she was
Durauinr constitutional obiects. This I did, al
though the South had placed the conservative
North in a false and indelenslbl position by
tbe repeal of tb Missouri Compromise and tb
nerseverine attempts to lorce slavery into tne
Territory of Kansas by surprise, fraud, and vio
lence, against tbe known wieh of an overwhelm
Inir maloritv ot th people. 1 panned this
course for the take of strengthening tbe hands
of patrlotte Union men at tb Booth, altbongh
I was well aware, partly from facts within my
personal knowledge, that leading Southern pol
itlclans bad for thirty years been resolved to
break no the Union as soon at they eeaaed to
control the United States Government, and that
the alarerv auestion was but a pretext for keep
ing up agitation and rallying the South.
Notwithstanding this state of things, and Ihe
wholly nnwarrantable manner In which tbe poli
cy of Secession was initiated by South Carolina,
and fallowed nn by the other Cotton States, and
in spite of tbe seizure of the publlo establish
ments and tbe publlo property which, In the
absence of any joint act of partition, waa sheer
plunder It was my opinion that, If tbey would
abstain from further aggression, and were de
termined to separate, we had better part in
peace. But the wanton attack on Fort Sumter
which took Dlaoe. not from any military neces
sity, for what barm was a single company, coop-
.. . , , i .1.1- . - a . ,
Cd up in tinarieston narnor, auia wuu w oama
Carolina? but for the avowed purpose of "stir
ring tbe blood" of the Sontb, and thus bringing
in the Border States), snd the subsequent pro
ceedings at Montgomery have wholly changed
tbe state 01 anirs. i ue oumu nae levied an
noprovoked war against th Government of the
United states, tne mttueei ana most neneaoeui
la tbe world, and has mad It the duty of every
rood clt ten to rally to ite topport.
I peroeiv that my having publicly expressed
that sentiment, ana ooDtriomea my mil to
wards the regiment of Mr- Webster (who In.
herite-the conservative opinions of his illns-
triona father) hae caused surprise on tbe part of
torn of my Southern mends yonrseu among
the most valurd of them as if my so doing was
inconsistent with tb friendly reelings 1 have
ever cberished toward th South- . But the
friends forget that as early a tb 12th of April,
that Is, belore tbe proclamation of President
Lincoln, the Secretary of War at Montgomery
bad threatened that by th 1st of May. th
Confederate flag should float over tbe Capitol at
Washington, and la due time over Fabeuil Hall.
When General Beauregard proceeds to execute
this threat, his red-hot oannon balls and shells
will not snare the roof that shelters my daugh
ter and four little children at Washington, nor
my own roof la Boston. Mast I, because I
have been th steady friend of the South, sit
still while he Is battering my house about my
arst .
I certainly deprecate the choice of a President
exclusively by the electoral vote of one seotioa
the oouutry, though consenting with th great
est reluotanc to be myaeit upon one or th op
posing tickets. It was, however, fully la the
power ot the soutn to nave proauoea a different
reault. But the Disunlonlsu were determined
have their own candidate, though mistaken,
trust, In th belief that he shared their disloy
al views. I mak this charge against them
without scruple, justified by subsequent events,
well as by the language or tne entire Union
bress at the South during the canvas.
After the election was decided th Disunion
would not wait for eeerl et$, because they
knew none could or would be committed. Tbey
knew that there was aa anti-Republican major
ity la tbe Senate, and that there would be on
the present House They "precipitated" the
rupture of the Union, because they knew that
they waited even th pretext tor It would
fail.-
After the Cottoa States bad seceded, and al
though tbat olrcumstano greatly Increased th
difficulty of compromise, measures wer never
theless adopted or propoeea in uongrees, which
must have removed all sincere alarm ou tb
part of the South, that their constitutional right
were threatened. The accredited leader ol th
Republican party, including tb Preeideot-eleot,
uniformly pledged themselves to that effect.
The two Houses, by a constitutional majority.
pledged themselves in like manner against any
future amendment of the Constitution violating
tbe rights of the South. A member from Mas
sachusetts ( Mr. Adams), possessing Ihe enllr
confidence of the inoomlog Administration, pro
posed to admit New Mexico as a State, and
three new Territories wer organised, without
ar
of
a
.
th
th
tb
of
anti-slavery restriction. While this was
done In Congress, tbe States repealed or modi
fied the laws throwing obstacles la th way of
recovering fugitive slaves law which bar
never been of any praotlcal Injury to th Cotton
8tates. These conciliatory demonstrations had
effect In staying the progress of accession,
because the leadera of that revolution wer de
termined not to be satisfied; and to maintain
their policy, which In tbe light ot th Constitu
tion Is simply rebellion and treason, they have
appealed to th sword. '
You say that the South desires nothing but
peace, and ask whether the North will not "let
alone?" But, my good friend, th South
demands a great deal more than "peaee." She
olaims the capital of the oountry, although the
but a third of its population. She claims
control of the outlet of Chesapeake bay and
tributaries; tbe right to command tb
most direct rout to the Atlantio from Ohio,
Indiana, and Illinois States whoee population
amounts to flv and a half million (th Balti
more and Ohio Railroad); th right to dra

finally, she claims tb right of any State, who
choose to pan a law to that effect, to break up

monstrous and unheard of usurpations, she asks

From the St. Louis, News, June 7.
E. Loring, of this eity, was In
New Orleans, a few weeks ago. when, learning
of tbe war being wsged oa curreney her, and
the extra raluF that had fn consequence been
placed on speoie, be purohssed several houdred
dollar worth of halves and quarter for thi
market. H had his treasure securely boxed
and Insured, and "shipped la good order and
condition" on board the steamer John Walah,
bound for St. Louis.
So far all was very well; and ven though
th policy of lnsursnce contained what Is known
as th "war clause" relieving the company
from all responsibility In ease of loss or damage
by confiscation, seizure by rebelliooaState.tn.
no apprehensions of a serious nature were felt
by tbe owner of the valuable box.
Mr. Loring did not travel with his money oa .
the steamer. Being in somewhat of a hurry, he
took tbe oars, and came all the wav thrnrh t
rail. On reaching St. Louis, he found that his
spool enterprise would pay handsomely, and he
began to look with some anxiety for tbe approach
of the steamer with bis little box. He waited
for several days In expectation that tbe coin
was safely on its way, and that It would earl.
come to hand, when he wok up on morning to
learn that tbe John Walsh bad been eelied by
th Secessionist at Memphis, her freight con
fiscated to tbe authorities of the plsoe, and the
boat pressed into the service of tbe Southern
Confederacy,
Here, indeed, was an unpleasant state cf
things. Whst made tbe matter worse, too.
was the faot that no tidings of the box nf an.
oie oould be bad from tbe officers of the Wakb. .
The case waa a puzxliog one to sjl who bad
beard of tt. circumstances, thd remote n:.,l.
billty of specie Intended lor us la one of the
cities of tbe " Northern Confederacy," being
rcgarueua ooniraoana, lenaing aa unusual
degree of interest to the whole affair. Tbe
matter, at the present writing, stands la about
tne position we nave described.
Mr. Lorinr bavins: waited with Joh lika n.
tlence for soma Information concerning the fate
aad whereabout of hi halves and quarters, and
being enable to obtain anything bearina on the
aubject, starts by tbe first boat for the South on
an exploration for tbe discovery of the box of
silver. Tbe box wos cloeely sealed and ad
dressed to Mr. L. at St. Louis. It mav be that
was deposited by the Clerk or Captain of the
John Walsh for safe keeping, It, one of tbe
mempois nanxing-nousea, though ir such were
th ease, U la strange that the owner waa not
promptly notified of tbe faot.
There ie no question but specie gives "aid sod
comfort" to people in this latitude, and in that
view of tbe matter it might be held by the
Memphttttes as "contraband." The ft nf
ihe box of small change snrzests an Interact.
lng and important question, aud we shall await
with some curloeity further lntelllrenca In rela
tion thereto.
The British Civil War.
Our latest diepttohes from Newfoundland
seem to indicate tbat all lb horrors of oivil war
ripening In that Province. Although there is
nobody hurt jst.tb Confederate Provincials have
cut down the tilegraph wires, intercepted tbe
malls to tb Government steamers pasting
Cape Race, and Will probably repudiate their
debts. Notwithstaodln the somewhat inolent
tone toward this country adopted by British
statesmen at times, w have always hoped
against hop that tb United Kingdoms of Eng
land would remain a nnlted nation until their
common destiny should have been fnlfilled.whlle
Urge lotereat in the codfish btnks of New
foundland have, perhaps, rather strengthened
our desire to see th unhappy dissensions be
tween tbat Provioe and th British Government
Mrs. Victoria Albert settled without tbe in- '
evltable misfortune of civil war; but now that
portion of th people of Newfoundland have
risen in revolution, w arsnot prepared to fullv
share th somewhat overweening oonfldenoe cf
the St. Johns Cbief of Polioe in his unques
tionable ability to subdue them.
Ae to the attltud proper to be assumed by
United State as regards this unhappy
straggle, w beg leave to assure th British
residents In onr midst, that our Government Is
quite able to ascertain how onr honor, our in
terests, and our national relations are to be .
moot clearly vindicated without any diotatlon
from them. W have had nothing to do with
bringing about of this fearful strife of
brother with brothers and w shall maintain a
position of striot neutrality favoring neither
side, Th United State wiU undoubtedly reo-. .
ognite th Confederate Provincial of New-" -foondlsnd
aa belligerents, and as such, permit
them to bring the telegraph wires they may cut
down in Newfouadlaad to this oountry and sell
them here: bat our own subjeot will be warned
against taking side with either Government
United Statee refusing to afford them any '
Erotection should they be arrested for grand
iroeny by on or the other.
Whichever party may meree trlumuhanl
from th frightf ul chaos of this unnatural war,
will, of course, be recognized aa th Kingdom
England. Further than this, w can give no
positive assuranoe at preseut Sunday Mercury.

Some women seem to be Inoapable of keeping ' '

scription come injposseseion of a secret affecting
th peace of whole families, and which every ,

Thus It la la thcower ot ome two or. three
