concerns Scotchmen to kno v is ever omitted from the
columns of the paper. Articiles relating to Scottish
subjects, original and selected, are also published from
time, to time and 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.k 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 tne
most interesting public topics of the day. ,
With a view to increase the popular interest of tne
" Scottish American Journal," nd to add to its val
ue as a family paper, arrangements have been matte
for a series of attractive tales, founded chiefly on sud
iects connected with Scottish life. The first of these
sj-ories, entitled " Clara Howard': a tale of .tneun
mean War," commences with the first number or we
new volume. A considerable instalment of he storv
will be rivenin every number till it is completea.
aad it will form interesting reading for the wmter
evenings alike for old and young. It will be follow

character. ,: ' -

with foreign countries, and that they .proclaim

4A Chapter on Flattery. Flattery is the
confectionary of the world. In polite society
it goes by the name of 'soap,' and in general
it is designated ' soft sawder.7 It prevails over
all ; few are beneath it, none above it; the
court,1the camp, the church' are the scenes of

Flattery, is like tickling; ' The person flat
tered finding himself satisfied, and co iscious
that it is to the flatterer that he is indebted
for the gratification,! feels under an obligation
to him without requiring reason.
Women are particularly fond of flattery, and
you may lay it on with a trowel. But if you
wish to be exceedingly delicate you may say, 'I
hope yoado not pull. the bed clothes over you
at night, Miss I' The lady will anxiously in
quire, 'Why?' 'For fear the brightness of
your eyes will set thera on fire,' is your reply.
You may also hint, that werej you and this
lady united iu the bonds of wedlock, you would
require no tinder but the tender passion, and
no lucifer-inatch cigar lighting machine, as her
eyes would afford a light at all times.

old gentleman with a red nose, of Bardolph's
character. . To a lady with false teeth, you may
relate a story of a gentleman who was choked
to death in swallowing them. To a gentleman
with bandy legs yoji may commence a disserta

ftAilELS 4-Their Strength. We visited Par
son's Iwharf on Tuesdav. to witness a feat of
'strength performed by dne of Mrs; Watson's
camels ot winch tnere were near a dozen on
the wlmrf, of alb ages. -I lie camel loaded was
one of ihe largest. On the-word of command
being given, the camel lay down, ready to re
ceive his load, which consisted of five tules of
hay weighing in the aggregate over 1,400
pounds, which was firmly bound to the pannier
placed upon the auimal's hump. Upon the ut
terance of command by the native keeper, the
huge animal rose without any apparent extra
effort to his feet, and walked off in a stately
manner along the wharf and through the city.
We were informed that the same camel had
had 1,600 pounds placed upon him, with which
enormous weight he easily rose. The animals
are all exceedingly tractable, aud seem to pos
sess much affection for any one who treats
them kindly, as an example of whicli Mrs. W.
informed us that one of them, a pretty white
one, which she had petted, would always kiss
her, when she was within kissing distance,
which fact we really thought proved the animal
to possess an excellent taste, as well as an af
fectionate disposition.1 'In their nalire eountry
the average load for a full grown camel-is eight
hundred pounds, with which they perform thtir
long journeys over deserts, with little food
or water. 1 ;
. We doubt not that' with the abundant forage
found iu all parts of Texas, and a full supply
of water generally, the' camel will improve iu
strength and general appearance, and be able
to transport larger loads, at a more rapid pace,
