ON the western coast of Scotland, near the bold juttings of the Ross of Mull, lies a little island, only two and one-half miles long, by one and one-half broad, with but a few hundred acres of arable land, and nothing ln its scenery or position to arrest the at tention of the traveller. And yet of that bleak islet, Dr. Johnson, who never spake any thing good of Scotland that he could avoid, was constrained to write, That man is little to be envied, whose pat riotism would not gain force on the plains of Marathon, or whose piety would not grow warmer among the ruins of Iona!
