MAUT1N & FEARCE.
SCOTTISH AMERICAN JOURNAL.
Gtl N ovember, 18S8. '
IN announcing a l ew volume of the Scottish Amer
ican JtrtntvAi. tw. Proprietor begR to call atten
tion to those fealur s of4he paper which haycaljeadf
ought tocommciid i t to the patronage ol a still more
numerous class of loaders. " !
The special feature of the paper is that it is a Scot-
tish, journal, conta ning notices o1' every event occur
ring in Scotland th it can be regarded as of the least
interest to natives of the country now residing on thjs
continent. The neu-s of the whole eountry is careful-j
ly collected and condensed, so that no event which it
concerns Scotchmen to kno is ever omitted from tbe
columns of the pajer. Articles relating to Scottish;
subjects, original at d selected, are also published lrom
time to time aud t ie more special character of thej
Journal is sustainel by literary features of. national
interest in the forn of tales, historical and;miscellan4
eous sketches, anec lotes and poetry. j ,
While thus natio ial in its character so i far, these
special features occupy comparatively .lijriited space
in the eight large raf?es of which the paper consists,
three-fourths of wh eh are devoted to newt and other
general matter calc ulated to be of interest to all clas-t
ses of readers, and not to Scotchmen alone. Acarej
fully compiled epitome of intelligence from England,
Ireland, the confine nt of Europe, and all parts of the
world is given in every number, with extracts from
the leading article s of the British Journals on the;
most interesting public topics of the day. i !
With a view to ir crease the popular interest of the
" Scottish America l Journal," nd to add to its kj
ue as a family paper, arrangements have been made
for a series of attra itive tales, fouuded chiefly on sub-.
jects connected w i Scottish life. The first of these
stories, entitled " C lara Howard : a tale of the Cri-f
mean War' commences with the first number of the;
new volume. A considerable instalment of the sto'rv
will be given in erery number till it is completed
and it will form interesting reading for the Winter
evenings alike for ( Id and young. It will-be ifollow4
ed by a succession i )f other tales of equally populaij
character. : , !
