Second "Voltnne,
Gtli 1ST v oi ri T oy, 1858.
IN announcing a new volume of the Scottish Amer
ican Joukvai.. tie . Proprietor beerf to call atten
tion to those features of -the paper which have already
ought to commend it to the
patronage ol a still more
numerous class oi readers.
The special feature of the paper is that it is a Scot
tish. journal, containing notices o1' 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 kuo is ever omitted from the
columns of the paper. Articles relating to Scottish
subjects, original and selected, are also published Jroni
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, 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," 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
will be given in every number till it is completed,
and it will form interesting reading for the winter
evenings alike for old and young. It will be follow
ed by a succession of other tales of equally popular
character.

the attention of chronologists. The burgesses

population) exhibit at the present day precisely
the same type of face and form as their ances

Free Nigroes. The existence of the Afri
can race in our community in the condition both
of freedom and slavery is an anomaly that be
gins to attract general attention. JNot only
have the evils which flow from the intimate
association of these two classes of colored per
sons forced upon other States the consideration
1 of a remedy, but in Louisiana the subject, be-
legislation.
At the present session of the Legislature, an
effort will be made to effect a change in this
regard. Under the existing laws, no slave can
hereafter be emancipated in Louisiana. Yet it
not unfrequently happens that slaves are freed
by will, with the express direction that they
be first taken by the executors or heirs to a free
State.
A case of this nature occurred but a few
days since in East Feliciana, but the slaves
themselves were unwilling to take their freedom
in a Northern State. The difficulty here pre
sented was a legal mode of allowing the slaves
to remain in slavery; the law gives the slaves no
option of freedom under the will, or to remain
in bondage in this State.
Our representatives cannot fail to see the
necessity of providing a law enabling slaves
placed in this condition to make a decision for .
themselves of the lot which they prefer, and to
ejoc7 fte coored praon to choomo nidsteE
for themselves. Cases are not unfrequent where
those who have bad experience of the trials and
difficulties of freedom, desire to come under the
protection and kindns 0f slavery, but our laws
mafce no provision, lor such a change of social
position. r
In regard to the free blacks that form a large
class in tfcrls State, there are grave difficulties
in theway-of any legislation designed to drive
thena out of the State. Many of them own
property some of them are quiet, peaceable,
indastriou8 and exemplary men, faithfully keep
ing within the limits which society prescribes
to them, and rigidly observing the laws. Un
fortunately this is not, however, the character
of all. The rising generation are gradually
-("'"g into he vices and corruptions by which,
e more degraded ot the white race are char
terized .

and free blacks is one of the future. It is clearly

Strange. A balloonist gives out that he
has made the following discovery : "I take.a
bar of brass which, when weighed on the earth's
surface, actually weighs fifteen pounds When
I ascend to three miles up in the atmosphere
and weigh the brass bar, it actually weighs by
a spring balance only seven and a half pounds ;
and again, five miles up, positively only three
pounds and a qnarter. What is the cause of
this?" The want of atmospherical pressure on it,
and the sun's attraction, which become more
apparent the nearer we approach his orbit A

but there's not one of them (thinks the ill used

That's a ball that's gone through mauy a wife's

devil's always tempting him with a ball, as he
tempted Eve with an apple."
