SfOTTISII .AMERICAN JOURNAL.
Second Volume,
Otla November, 1858-
N announcing a new volume of the Scottish Amer
. ican- Jovkxai., the Proprietor begs to call atten
tion to those features ot the paper wmcii nave aireauy
secured for it a large share ot support, aud which
ought to commend it to the patronage of a still mori
numerous class of readers.
The special feature of the paper is that it is a Scot
tish, journal, containing notices o'-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 ot the whole country is careiui-
ly collected aud condensed, so that no event wnicn u
concerns Scotchmen to kno is ever omitted from the
columns of the paper. Articles relating to scottisn
subjects, original and selected, are also published Irom
time tn timt aiwl the more stiecial character oi iuu
.Fonrnal is sustained liv literarv features of national
interest in the form of tales, historical aud miscellan
eous sketches, anecdotes and tioetrv
While thus national in its character fo 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
sreneral matter calculated to be of interest to all clas
ses of readers, and not to Scotchmen alone. A care
fully compiled epitome of intelligence Irom 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," nd to add to its val
ue as a family paper, arrangements have bet;n 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
will be "iven in every number till it is completed.
nnd it will form interesting rtading for the winter
openings alike for old and young. It will be follow
ed by a succession of other tales of equally popular
character.

THE SOUTH CAROLINIAN.
FAYETTEVILLE, N. C.
Commerce Abroad. - -Last
year Lord Clarendon requested those
classed as junior members of .the diplomatic
corps to send home reports touching the state
of trade in various countries, and the result is
a parliamentary document, just out, containing
three reports. From these it appears that :
Sardinia has a debt of 27,000,000, and that
the work of tunneling. Mount Ceuis goes on
successfully.
Belgium within ten years has nearly doubled
its foreign trade, the imports in 1857 reaching
.27,160,009. The statistics from this country
Take the coal trade. lu
rdnced was A.500,000 tons

only 34,000 tons. The . cotton
traAa has trinled durinir the last ten years.
wnnl and are offerins to give up all protective
; , -. .
duties if allowed to get the raw material they
use free. It is stated that there is a strong
and growing tendency towards free trade among
the leading statesmen of Belgium, and a law
on the subject, on liberal principles, has already
w nnorl fnr snhmission to the Chambers.
Switzerland presents marked evidences
of
of
nrnoTPCS
whinh is set down to the account
political liberty and free trade. The falling off

drew awav a large portion of the population

have been done ot late years oy owuzenanu
with the United States than with any other
country, aud the crisis at New Fork last au
tumn was consequently severely felt. In rail
ways the country is behind most others, and
the lines that exist are " not greatly to be
admired." The total of nominal capital thus
invested is about 12,000,000, of which a large
proportion is foreign, the Paris Credit Mobiher
being a great holder. In telegraphs there has
beenmuch more progress, and the charges for
;i.tornl trfno-fs are extraordinary low, a-
ti only to 2s. Gd. for one hundred words,
irrespective oi uismutc.
Denmark is steadily advancing in commerce,
and the progress has been marked for ten years
past ; and this, it is stated, has been materially
assisted by the breaking down ol restrictions on
trade. . '
Frankfort, among other things, contains a
company which has met with singular success
in preserving and compressing vegetables for
naval, military, and other purposes. It was
established with a capital of only 10,000, and
is now doing much business with almost every
nnrt. of thfi world. The first vear it made a
return of 13 per cent.: the seeond, in conse
quence of enlargements, it paid only 8 per cent.,

-Austria occnpies a low.place in commerce,
and the report states that here, to-day, in this
nion of the nineteenth century, flourish in their
vigor, the " guilds and trades " system of the
Middle Ages. These are full of monopolies,
and those restrictions are allowed to-day to fet
tnr and well nisrh subDress the industry of t
nonulation of 38.000,000.
Russia, with her sixty millions, is described
as making slow but sure progress in commerce
Turkey has free trade as to the foreigner,
but is strangely restrictive as to her interna
transit trade- sso production or the soil or
manufactures of Turkey can be transported by
sea between any two towns without paying 12
percent, on being shinned, and 1 per cent, on
beinor sold for consumption : wVile a3 regards
the tributary provinces, an average duty of 15
per cent, is levied on goods merely passing and
repassing the frontier. As the country is de
void of roads, the tax on sea carriage virtally
applies to the only means of cheap transpor
at command ; and the mode ot collecting rev
enne is described being as barbarous as ever
Portugal is described as being at a low state
and the emigration to iSrazil to be large and
constant. There is barely sufficient com grow
to supply the wants of the population, for the
' eason that, owing to the want of roads, and
the impracticability or expense of transport, the
farraer merely cultivates sumeient land to snp-
ply his own immediate neighborhood, anything
beyond that remaining a dead loss upon his
hands.

Burns, and sat next to and conversed with him

BY GRANT THORNBCRX.
In 1804, the yellow fever prevailed in New
York to a fearful extent. 1 never leittne city

n.r from the South : he 'walked
in tl;e untune
of the street, and was reading
"ir . '
the names on
the siprn boards.
He stepped to my door.
" Mr Thornburn," said he, " I nm just come

He looked young, simjile, smtl honest. 1
knew the heart of the . stranger. I called my
wife. - - - -- i ii
My dear," says I, " this strnnqrer can-nei
ther find work nor board; will you board him?"
Yes' said she.
If he takes the fever, will you Iiclp me
nurse him ?"
" I will."
" Thank yon," said I ; "for this God will
bless you."
Before one week elapsed he took the fever.
I procured an eminent physician ; my wife and
myself nursed him. On the fourth tbiy of the
fever he was under the operation of powerful
medicine. The fever was coursing through his
veins, and burning up his Kngli.sh blood. I
sat by his bed. lie fastened his eye on mine.
Oil ! Mr. T., Mr. T, he exclaimed, " I

" Die, to be sure, Robert, we must f.ll die.
I shall see you a master-builder in New York,
and married to a bonny Yankee lass, and live
to carry your grand-children in my arms yet.
There was a lull in the fever when the medi
cine commenced operation. He dropped asleep.
From that hour the fever left him.
When I held the cooling drops to his lips,
and pressed his burning head between my
hands, I little thought there lay the genii of a
machine, that was destined to revolutionize the
world of literature. At that time a common
school Bible cost a dollar ; now they are sold
for twenty five cents. His sons added several
improvements to their father's invention ; they
arc much esteemed wherever known.

years ago ; stepp'ng irom me car?, i noiu eu a

Says I :
" bir. my business will detain me a week in
this town, I don't like to ston at a tavern, can
you inform me where I can find a quiet, pri
vate family where J may board ;
" I can," he replied. " Come with me."
We turned a corner. On a piazza, in front
of a respectable dwelling, sat a comely matron.
On her lap sat a child that might have been
six summers.
" Good wife," fiays my conductor, " this is
Mr Thcrburn from New York. He wants
irivate accommodations. Can'you board him
for a week ?"
"That I will," said she, "for a twelve
month, if he says so. I have often heard my
father tell how Mr Thorburn took him into his
house and nursed him, when he took the yel
low fever."

" Robert Hoe."
"Is that your child ?"
" It is," said she.

The elder Hoe died in 1835.
The Hcmax Hair. It is stated that the
