So dreadful are its consequeuces to human life, that it is hardly possible to over estimate the importance of an actual, reliable remedy that can eweep out, this Scrofulous contamination. We know, then, we shall proclaim welcome news to our readers, of one from such quarter will leave little doubt of its efficacy—and still more welcome, when we tell them that it surely does accomplish the end desired. We mean Ayer's Sarsaparilla, and it is certainly worth the attention of those who are afflicted witb Scrofu...

Warlike Rumors, Tbe warlike rumors are so numerous and vaiant, (says the Baltimore American of Saturday ist) and the surmises built thereon so conflictag that it is difficult to arrange them into an inBlligible form. The one tact that has manifested tself so indubitably as to be beyond contradicion is that a sudden and very energetic activity s displayed in the military and naval departnents of the Government, the chief developnents of which are seen at the Brooklyn Navy fard and the various stations in and about New fork. The Government has concentrated there learly three thousaud troops, and is preparing to lespatch them somewhere upon some service of mportance.

We publish as full accounts as possible of recent exciting occurrences at Charleston and other places. War Las actually commenced. After all his declarations in favor of peace, President Lincoln has taken a course calculated inevitably to provoke a collision, aud to unite the whole South in armed resistance. It seems that he attempted to throw supplies into Fort Sumter aud thus the war began. P. S. A despatch has just been received (10 o'clock Monday) from Col. Geo. Baylor, of the Convention at Richmond, stating that Lincoln has called out seventy thousand Militia. Where from? For what? The Colonel wishes to know what the people here think. There is but one sentiment —every man is ready to take up arms. Intense excitement prevails iv the community. §3P ...

The Negro Exodus from Chicago. Tbe stampede among the dark skins of Chicago, which commenced immediately after the rendition of the Harris family of slaves, still continues. The blessings that this exodus of vice and depravity will confer upon the moral, pLysical and political health ot Chicago are incalculable. It will rid ns of the debris ot the colored population, leaving a better name and a better opportunity for tho-e of that color who remain, whose industry and honesty have always commended them to the favorable consideration of our citizens. Our criminal courts will experience a Very great abridgement of their dockets, and Abolition pettifoggers will have fewer occasions to exhibit thesr voluutary sympathy, and less opportunity to blow themselves into a notoriety which they can at tain in no other way. We can get along with a much smaller police force tliau formerly, and clothes lines, hen roosts, woodwards, and hundreds ot similar scenes of former petty theiviDg, will be ble...
