FAMINE IN SCOTLAND. There's weeping.'mid the lonely sea, Where the rude Hebrides lie, And where the misty Highlands point Their foreheads to the sky. The oats were blighted on the stalk? The corn before its bloom? And many a hand thut held the plough Is pulseless in the tomb ! There is no playing in the streets? Hie haggard children move Like mournful phantoms, mute and slow, Uncheered by hope or love. No dog upon his master fawns? No sheep the hillocks throng? Not even the playmate^ kitten sports The sad-eyed babes among? No more the cock his clarion sounds, Nor brooding-wing is spread, There is no food in barn or stall, And all are with the dead ! From the young maiden's hollow cheek The ruddy blush is gone? The peanant like a statue stands, And hardens into stone? The shuttle sleepeth in the loom, The crook upon the walls? And from the languid mother's hand The long-used distaff falls. ? She hears her children ask for bread, And what can she bestow ? She sees their uncomplaining aire A mournful shadow grow. Oh, Scotia!?sister1! if thy woes * Awake no pitying care, If long at banquet board we sit, Nor heed thy deep despair? While thou art pining into death, Amid thy heather brown? - Will not the Giver of our joys Upon our luxuries frown ? And blast the blossom of our pride, And ban the rusted gold ? And turn the morsel into gall That we from thee withhold ? Small Business. We understand that the President did not sign the river and harbor bill, but put it in his pocket. We cousider that a very contemptible act. True, the sum appro priated was small?less than hMf what it should have been?still, it was better than no-I thing, and would have been of great service at the present time. It is well for Mr. Polk that he is not to be a candidate for re-election. Were he to be upon the course again, he would probably be remembered by those inte rested in lake navigation. Oswego (JV. Y.) Palladium. This Palladium is one of the most rabid of the Polk journals, and though he berates his master so unmercifully, let Mr. Polk be a can Mate for the Presidency for a second term (asve prophecy he will be in spite of his ri vals) -he Palladium will throw up his greasy cap for^oik Dallas as high as any of the creatures. The Prup qf Happiness. A flour merchant of Boston w^ made so happy by the news brought by the Hibernia on Saturday night, that visions of ptv;pectire profits mingled with his dreams as he qvietly snoozed in church on Sunday morning. The minister was de scanting upon the unsatisfying character of sublunary things. 'Wh* j3 the price of all earthly happiness V he k^fced, jn rather an animated tone.

Be it remembered that the God-lather who has selected this appropriate title foi \h? old Hero of Buena Vista, is the leading Democra tic paper in Georgia. Extraordinary Delusion. A negress at Wil liamsburg, N. Y., recently pretended that sh? was daily in communication with Heaven, and to be the Messiah. She found believers and dupes in the wife and sister of a respecta ble engraver, and the three finally prevailed upon the man himself to give way to the im position. At length the false prophetess pre tended that she had received a divine intima tion that it was heaven's will that he should salute her, (the black woman) with a holy kiss every morning. This had the effect to open his eyes to the true character of the wench's divine claims; and so he immediately, but not without much opposition on the part of his family, discharged her. The wife and sister, however, were so bound by the spell which this colored Messiah had thrown around them, that they determined to follow and become her disciples. Consequently, proceedings were taken before a magistrate, who, after hearing the evidence, made an order for the admissiou of the parlies into the insane asylum. The prophetess herself has been consigned to the Kings county Lunatic Asylum, while the wife and sister are now at a private institution at Flushing. The Telegraph. The disputes between Mr O'Reilly and the Patentees of Morse's Tele gragh are about to be settled by the intervene tion of Mr. Case of Cincinnati, aind measures ?re to be taken immediately for the extension of the lines from Pittsburg to New Orleans and St. Louis.' The Eastern line from Wash ington to New Orleans is also in a fair way of being constructed at an early day. Let the whole continent be girtled with the lightning, and in the language of Nahum prophecying this very thing?"the fir trees shall be terribly shaken." One of the New Orleans editors says that Santa Ana cannot, even at the head of 30,000 men, enter the city of Saltillo. But what, if he present himself at the gate at the head of his army and exhibit a pass from Mr. Polk f [Prentice's Journal. The battle of Buena Vista has fully answer ed that question. I HARPER'S CELEBRATED RAZOR POWDER, WARRANTED To give a keen tharp edge to u Razor or any fine instrument, In one minute, or the Money returned. CERTIFICATES. Washington City, D. C. | It is very seldom that I have ever recommended any new invention, because I know that recommen dations are so frequent and easily obtained, that they are in general of little value. But I consider it nothing more than an act of justice to the inventor to bea* testimony to the good qualities of Harper's Metalic Compound for sharpening Razors, and to say it is the very best material for the purpose that has come to my notice. I have made a fair trial of it, and have never found any thing equal to it for giving a keen edge to a Razor. J. L. EDWARDS. Washington City, D. C.? January 24, 1816.

Tbey have been (rium >haiitly tested, not only % some of the moat re spectable families and physicians in the State of South Carolina, who have furnished ample testi mony as to their dccided excellence, bat also by the proprietor, who, for ten yeais, suffered all the gloom incident to that ntubborn and distressing disease. They possess the peculiar excellence, denied to most other Bitters, of not proving injurious by con tinued use. They coatain not a single deleterious ingredient, and, as seen from the directions which accompany each bottle, may be given with entire safety to an infant in the month. With pleasure, and for the benefit of mankind, I ;end you a certificate relative to the Colleton Bit ters. In the year 1838, when the chokra was in Charleston, S. C., I was compelled to send a servant to the city. On his return, he was suddenly attack ed with most violent pain in his bowels, eo much no as to causa apprehension that h? would expire in a short time, if medical aid could not be procured. I immediately resorted to the Colleton Bitters, by giv ing a wine glass full at a dose. In the course of a very short time it acted as an emetic, and throwing him at the same time into a profuse perspiration. I then continued to give it in small doses, from two to three tea spoonefull, which resulted in a happy re covery. Since then I have been using it constantly in my family, in case* of cholera morbus, cholera infantum, diarrhma and general debility, and in every instance found it highly beneficial. Soma constitutions, however, require mueh larger doses than others. ^ JOS. D.TONKINS. Bluffton, S. G., 1846. It is with feelings of gratitude as well as pleasure that I take this method of giving my testimony of the great estimation which I entertain for your in valuable compound. In justice not only to the me dicine, butffor the benefit of others who may be suf fering from the same malady, Dyspepsia, with which [ wad for years afflicted, I feel it a duty incumbent on me to state that I am now restored to perfect health. When I commenced taking Colleton Bitters it was as a last resort. My (taflPky from in digestion was jo great that a cure was looked upon as almost hopeless. After taking it regularly and perseveringly for some time, my strength and di gestive powers were entirely restored. I have never taken a single dose of any other medicine for more than five years past. I can now eat the richest food 1 without any unpleasant feelings whatever. I have also used Colleton Bitters freely in my family for cholera t ftfontum, cholera morbus, general debility, and as a tonic after fever, with great success. As a family medicine I deem it invaluable, and do con scientiously recommend it. A. M. R. St. John's Collrton, S. C., December, 1846. For sale by the only Agent for the District of Columbia, fi.
