IN ant
ICAX
announcing a new volume ot tne Scottish amer-
cax jourxAi., inc i ronrietor oegs 10 can aiieu-
tion to those features of the paper which have already
secured for it a large share of support, and which
ought to commend it to the patronage of a still more
numerous class of readers.
The special feature of the paper is that it is a Scot
tisi. journal, containing notices of every event occur
ring in Scotland that can be regarded as of the least
interest to natives of the country now residing on this
continent. The news of the whole eountry is careful
ly collected and condensed, so that no event which it
concerns Scotchmen to kno is ever omitted from the
columns of the paper. Articles relating to Scottish
subjects, original and selected, are also published from
time to time aud the more special character of the
Journal is sustained by literary features of national
interest in the form of tales, historical and miscellan
eous sketches, anecdotes and poetry.
While thus national in its character so far. these
special features occupy comparatively limited space
in the eight large pages of which the paper consists,
three-fourths of which are devoted to news and other
general matter calculated to be of interest to all clas
ses of readers, and not to Scotchmen alone. A care
fully compiled epitome of intelligence from England.
Ireland, the continent of Europe, and all parts of the
world is given in every number, with extracts from
the leading articles of the British Journals on the
most, interesting public topics of the day.
With a view to increase the popular interest of the
" Scottish American Journal,'7 nd to add to its val
ue as a family paper, arrangements have been made
for a series of attractive tales, founded chiefly on sub
jects connected with Scottish life. The first of these
stories, entitled " Clara Howard : a tale of the Cri
mean War," commences with the first number of the
new volume. A considerable instalment of the storv

FAYETTEVILLE, N. C.
Bonora and Chihuahua.
The recommendation in the message of the
President that the United States shoald assume
a temporary protectorate over Sonara and
Chibaahua is founded not only in just right of
reprisal for aggravated and long continued oat
rages upon American citizens, but upon princi
ples of self-preservation, and upon humanity
for the people of these frontier States. The
condition of these States, although similar in
point of misgovernmeat and oppression, is not
the same in degree. Sonora contains fifteen
millions of acres of land and a ' population of
about 120,000 souls, including Indians. Of
this number, a reliable authority estimates only
Dve per ceut. as being able to read: and write
- TW nBiiiber.Qfnhalitnts whB call themselves
whiU "gentdde razon" does not probably
fine climate, and in the valleys the richest soil.
Sngar, cotton, wheat, corn, peas, beans, all the
Irnits grow in a luxuriousness and profusion
unknown even to our southern possessions.
The people are naturally docile, and accustom
ed to labor, caring only to be let alone to make
the State rich and prosperous by their quiet toil.
VV i tli all these advantages, Sonora is to-day in
the most miserable condition . The whole State
is the prey of the Apache Indians. AH culti
vation, except in the immediate vicinity of the
towns, is abandoned. The high roads are daily
stained with the blood of the people. The
whole mining region of the northern portion of
the State is abandoned and the commercial
world is deprived of the silver which it so
much needs. From researches which will
shortly be made public through the Indian De
partment, it is ascertained that more than one-
fourth of the Gila Apaches are Mexican chil
dren who have been carried iuto captivity and
Annually, hundreds of
both sexes are captured. They never return
except when familiarized ' with the Indian life.
What is this to the United States ? And when
s our authority to avenge the wrongs of assas
sins inflicted upon a foreign population ? The
answer is plain. These have their haunts in
the XT niteu States north of the Gila river.
From the valleys of its northern branches they
descend iuto Sonora and Chihuahua : plunder.
murder, and take prisoners, and return with
their ill-gotten booty to their homes, where
they remain until want or inclination again
sends them forth. Secure in their retreat, when
they have crossed our boundary line which
the Mexican dare uot cross they pursue their
way leisurely back. We, in effect, give shel
ter to these predatory bands, and become par-
liceps criminis in the despoiling of the fairest
province upon which the sun ever shown.
More than this : Arizona, which has been
gradually growing in importance since its ac-
qmsion, is made the high road of the despoilers
and its development, which promises to auj
ment in so great a degree the wealth of the
world, is chocked ; our people, the sturdy pion
eers or civilization, are robbed: our only mail
communication over land to the Pacific through
out the year liable to be stopped ; and we have
no redress. This wily savage, the Apache,
after a severe outrage upon our side of the line
retreats into Mexico, where we cannot follow
him, makes a temporary peace with the near
est Mex'can authority and remains untilja great
er temptation offers. Ihe Mexican govern
ment affords neither protection nor redress.
Our readers will observe that we have touched
only one phase of this question. This alone
would havejustined us loner since in establish
msr military posts in Sonora and Chihnahna.
We are assured upon competent authority that!
protection by the United States from the A pa -

The population is varioasly estimated at
from 10.000,000 to 50.000,000 : the mean of
the two estimates being, perhaps, nearer to the
truth.
The principal or more important towns of
the empire are :
On Nipho Yedo, (or Jeddo,) Mijako, (or
Kio,) &c.
On Kiusiu Nangasaki, Sagi, Korkurn, &c.
On Sikuk Simoda, Kotsi, Takamutsi, &c.

The interior of the country is unknown to
foreigners ; but it is represented to be, in many
parts, sterile agriculture being compulsory,
and under a system of sumptuary laws long
known to exist in Japan
The natural productions Sf this rast. empire
are various and valuable. Its mineral riches
includes gold, silver and copper. Sulphur and
nitre abounds ; coal is found in the greatest
abundance ; and precious stones, including sap
phires, agates, jaspers, cornelians, and even
diamonds, are obtained in different parts of
Japan.
