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.)
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

vals) -he Palladium will throw up his greasy
cap for^oik Dallas as high as any of the
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. ' Forty-two killings pev bar

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
The Telegraph. The disputes between Mr
O'Reilly and the Patentees of Morse's Tele

and St. Louis.' The Eastern line from Wash

In one minute, or the Money returned.
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.

For a number of years my Teeth and (iums were

A CURE FOR LIFE SECURED.
DR. UPHAM'S Vegetable Electuary,
an internal remedy for the Piles,?prepared by
Dr. A. Upham, M. D., a regular educated Physician
who has devoted fifteen years attention almost en
tirely to this disease.
The Electuary is a certain cure for the Piles, and
also for other diseases of a similar nature, which are
frequently found in conjunction with Piles, Rashes,
Inflammation of the Liver, ami Spleen; Inflamma
tion, Soreness, and Ulceration of the Stomach, Bow

THE VEGETABLE PILE ELECTUARY is
the only really suceesbful remedy for that dangerous
and distressing complaint, the PILES, erer offered
to the American Public.
Mark this: it is an INTERNAL REMEDY?
not an external application?and will cure any case
of Piles, either Bleeding or Blind, Internal or Exter
nal ; and probably the only thing that will. There
is no mistake about it. It is a positive eyre?speedy
and permanent. It is also a convenient medicine to
take, and improves the general health in a rernarkaj

degreo disagreeable, inoonvenient, and offensive ; and
from the very nature of the disease, temporary in
their effects. This medciine attacks the disease at
its source, and REMOVING THE CAUSE, ren

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
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. ^
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.

Dr. Christie's Galvanic Rings and Mag
THIS remarkable invention, which has received
the almost, universal approbation of the medical
profession of Great Britain, comprises an entirely
new applicaflbn of Galvanism, as a remedial agent
by means of which the ordinary Galvanic Batteries,
Electric and Magnetic Machines, &c. are entirely,
dispensed with, and the mysterious power of Galvan
ism applied without any of the objections which are
inseparable from the general mode now in use.
The Galvanic Rings have been uesd with entire
success in all aases ef rheumatism, acute or chronic,
applying to the head, face, or limbs ; gout, tic-dolo
reux, toothache, bronchitis, vertigo, nervous or sick
headachq, indigestion, paralysis, palsy, epilepsy, fits,
cramp, palpitation of the heart, apoplexy, stiffness of
the joints, spinal complaints, lumbago, neuralgia,
nervous tremors, dizziness of the head, paina in. the
chest and side, general debility, deficiency of ner
vous and physical energy, and all nervous disorders.
In cases of confirmed dyspepsia, which is simply a
nervous derangement of the digestive organs, tLey
have been been found equally successful. Their ex
traordinary effects upon the system must be witnessed
to be be belived, and ay a certain preventive for the
preceding complaints they are equally recommended.
The rings aro of different prices, being made of all
sizes, and of various ornamental patterns, and can
he worn by the most delicate female without the
slightest inconvenience. In fact, the sensation is ra
her agreeable than otherwise.
Tux Galvanic Belts, Bracelets, Ba ndb, Gar
ters, Necklaces, &c. Alc. These articles are
adapted to the waist, arms, wrists, limbs, ankles, or
any part of the body with perfect convenience. The
Galvanic Necklaces are used with greater benefit in
cased of bronchitis or affections of the throat gener
ally ; also, in cases of nervous deafness; and with
almost uniform success as a preventive for appoplexy,
epileptic fits, and similar complaints.
Christie's Magnetic Fluid is used in connexion
with the Galvanic Rings, and all their modifications.
This composition has been pronounced by the
French Chemists to be one of the most extraordi.
nary discoveries of modem science. Full explana
tions and directions accompany- it. The combined
inventions are in every way perfectly harmless; tbey
are at prices within reach of all, and the discoverer
only requosts a fair trial, as a test of their surprising
efficacy and permanent benefit.
Christie's Galvanic Strengthening Pias
ters.?These articles form another valuable applica
tion of the mysterious influence of Galvanism. They
are an important adjunct to the genuine Galvanic
Rings and their modifications, acting upon the same
principle, but having the advantage of more local-ap
plicatioir They are confidently recomonded as a
valuable addition in the speedy cure of rheunntiam,
acute or chronic ; in all nervous complaints, and as a
positive remedy in cases of pain and weakness in the
chest or back, pain in the aide, in asthmatic affections,
and in weakness or oppression of the pulmonary or
gans. In spinal complaints their effects are of the
most decided character, and tbey have often been
used with complete success. They ar? also of the
greatest advantage in pains and weakness ef the
breast, and are highly recommended for many of
those complaints to which females are especially li
able. As an effectual means for strengthening the
system when debilitated with disease and othflj^au
ses, aa a certain aid in constitutional weakness, as
a preventive for colds, and in all affections of the
cheat generally, the Galvanic Strengthening Pias
ters will be found of great and permanent advan
(* CAUTION. The celebrity and success of
these articles have caused them to be counterfeited
by unprincipled persons. Dr. Christie cautions the
public against spurious imitations. He has but one
authorized agency in each city of the Union, where
the genuine articles can be procured. The only
agents for Washington are?
