HiscecIaneous. Correspondence of thu Charleston Courier. WAsBINGToN, Feb. 29, 1840. 'the Senate did not sit to-day. The weather is delightful, and many of the Senators have embraced the opportunity of it, to make short excursions to the neighboring cities. The business of the Senate is far in advance of that of the House, and they iight as well pause where they are, for the House will do io more business this season. Every thing in the way of.business, public or private, must stand still till the Presidential elec tion is over. The whigs are making im mense exertions to carry their candidate ; and they have assumed a tone of confi dence which has been quite unusual with then; but upon what grounds their expec tation of success is founded, does not ap pear. They say that the administration party is disorganised and broken up. In this, I apprehend, they are mistaken, though there have certainly been some signs of dissension in their ranks. The' strength of the administration in the no...

Interval, an additional increase. Tbis, as I have stated, is not accidental, but is the result of causes inherent in the system it self, in the present condition of our coun try. It originates in the fact, that every increase of proitection- is necessarily fol lowed by an expansion of the currency, which expansion must continue to enlarge till the increased price of production to consequence shall become equal to the increased -duty, and when the importation of the articles prohibited may again take place with profit. That is the principle; and as it is essential to the peace and pros perity of the country that it should be clearly understood, I intend to establish its truth beyond doubt or cavil, and for that purpose, shall begin-with the tariff of 8, the last and by far the boldest of the series, with the view of illustrating, in its case, the operation of the principle. I entreat the Senate to give me its fixed at tention. The. principle, well understood, will shed a flood of lig...

to consume you. And it may be so. Greater men upon the page of history, have been alike unfurtunate. We have is the present day some signal instatices of the early blight of exalted reputation. Think of these things, and be 'wise. "Those most assume, who-knao the least, Their own false balance;gives e'm weight, But ev'ry other. fds 'em light." Let me advert-more particularly to one of your concrusions; " Up Country an oJice seeker." ..And yet you declare that he is opposed to the almost unanimous voice of the State. This is certainly a novel way of getting-office. What reek lesmness of assertion on your part! What logical deduction ! But you, according to your own confession, have gone with the overwhelming majority, and common sense will decide between us. A word to my readers, and I am done. In the com munication which drew forth the pompous commentary from " Amicus," it was ex pressly remarked, that "I have nothing to say against Col. Richardson." He had been nominated by the Mer...

ndividual debts on the common fund of the Union, or to impose them on the shoulders of its most prudent associates; or, let me add, to dishonor itself, and the name of an American, by refitsing to pay the foreigner what it justly owes Let the indebted States remember in time, that there is but one honest mode of paying its debts; stop all further increase, and it pose taxes, to discharge what they owe. There is not a State, even the most in debted, with the vnallest resources, that has not aml)le resources to meet its engage. ments. For one, I pledge myself; 6outhi Carolina is also in .delt.

From the Alezandria Gazette. THE WORLD A BARBER'S SHOP. Our notions rightly kittled up, No one a doubt can harbour, That all the world's a barber shop, And every man a barber. The farmer, be's a barber's friend, And ready in a trice, sir, To lather with a recommend, And shave us with a price, sir. Mechanics, they are barbere, all, Nor lackeys at the play, sir, They lather, when for work they call, And shave us for the pay, sir, The Doctor, he's a barber too, He lathers with a pill, sir, And many applicants, or few, He shaves us with a bill, sir. The Merchant, he's a barber too, And who that him surpasses? He lathers with fine calico, And shave the beardless lasses. Our Congress Members, lately have Assumed the barber's station, And without lather, tried to shave With double compensation. But of all the suds-bedoubing host, With razors whet the keenest, The lawyer lathers folks the most, And shaves mankind the cleanest. From the Savanna& Telegraph. A Lucar EznTon.-The editor of t...
