Professor A gazzis.
Frorm a letter of a correspondent of the
South Carolinian, we copy the following
of this eminent naturalist:
While at Nahant we visited the distin
guished' natu'ralit, Agassiz, who, in his
sumrlher cottage, with the cool breezes of
the ocean playifrg upon him, continues his
scientific labors tor the benefit of his fellow
man. We found him busy with minute
t'issections of the actinia,.making draw
ings of the anim:a s which inhabit the
shells'of 'the echind derm'. We had the
pleasure of seeing the ninutd st-tucture
of these enrious specimens' of mdaturd's
handiwork, acid witnessin.rhe' mti6ns of
animials, which are usually' regarded as
liked, because they appear firmly attach
ed to ordinary obser/ere.' The professor
is engaged im the preparation o' his second
volume of his cliusaiflchtton of the animal
kingdoni, und expects it will' intlude the
whore;'id be shortly completed. Upon
ientioning the anxiety which exist as to
the result of his investigation of other s'ub
jects which i~t was hoped would Have been

Scrofula.
It has been remarked by eminent men,
that in the vried'catalogue of diseasea to
which man is liable, there is scarcely one
of such importance and o such interest
as Scrofula, whether we look to the o6.
scurity of its origiii, its insiduous progress,
the numbie and v.iejy of organs that it
attacks, or its remarkable incurability and
extensive fatality:
Scrofula has baffled the skill of the most
eminent physicians in this country and in
lurope. But there is an antidote for this
disease in ]'ir. (uysou's Extract of Yet.
low Dock and sa'rsaparilla," which is
proving itself a s'pecific tn the most sevene
