"The Coming Horde."—Under this heading
the Cincicnati Enquirer speaks of the probability
of several of the States following the example of
Arkansas in excluding free negroes, a_d says:
"The result of this will be that the poor ban
ished wretches will come pout i tig in upon ns by
hundreds aud thousands. Unfit for a residence
in new countries, and without the industry ne
cessary to t-übdue a wilderness; shut out by
stringent l>*ws from the othe. „free States of tbe
"West, and kept from those that are further North
by the Bolt—MM of the climate, Ohio will be ia a
fair way to be overrun by this swarm of tbe
destitute and improvident, and the question,
what is to be done ? will be forced upon her by
circumstances of the most imperative character.
Little as the event in question may appear to
some, it is one that will be sure to beget a long
train of consequences; nor is it unlikely that, a
mong other effects, it will disclose the weakest
poiDt id our Union, and -exhibit dangers to the
Confederacy hitherto unforeseen, and against
which no adequate protection has been devised.
Enough may now be seen to indicate that the
end is not yet, aud that there is more than t
nough of bitterness iD store tor the future."

ANEW Year of this popular FAMILY NEWS
PAPER will be commenced on the first of Jan
uary next —printed on fine paper and clear type.
With the January number will begin the publica
tion of a new and beautiful original work of Fact and
Fiction, written expressly for the Home Journal, en
A ROMANCE OF AMERICAN HISTORY.
BT A DISTINGUISHED AUTHOR.
The romantic events on which this beautiful story
isfounded occurred in the troubled times of 1782, im
mediately before the close of the Revolutionary War,
and the recognition of American Independence—a
time when strange events brought out strong charac
ter, and mighty trials a corresponding heroism. The
most romantic imagination never invented fiction
more exciting than the historical passages of these
times —(strange to say, until now unappropriated by
the novelist.) Manly heroism and womanly devotion
are wrought to the highest degree, through a chain of
events not less exciting than strange—not less strange
This charming story will be succeeded by
A BRILLIANT VENETIAN TALE.
BT OCTAVE FUILLKT,
the celebrated author of "The Romance of a Poor
Young man," the success and circulation of which,
both in the New and Old World, have been unprece
dented, and given him a place amongst the first of
living novelists. The tale is one of surpassing inter
est, replete with incidents, aud highly descriptive of
Italian life, morals and manners. Its translation from
the French by Mrs. Marian M. Pullan. (expressly for
the Home Journal,) herself a talanted and gifted au
thoress, eminently qualified for the task by education
and by her residence in the country of the author,
will sufficiently guarantee the purity of the style in
which it will be rendered, and that nothing of the force
and merit of the original will be lost in the transla
All the former peculiar features of the paper, which
have given it a world-wide reputation, will be contin

FOR CIRCUIT COURT CLERK.
__f~ TO THE VOTERS OF AUGUSTA
COUNTY :—At the request of a number of you I
present myself a candidate for the office of Clerk of
your Circuit Court, at the election to be held on the
4th Thursday in May next. I tender you my services
the more readily, knowing that the deep interest you
have iv the proper discharge of the duties of the office
will cause you to examine closely the qualifications of
the various candidates who may present themselves.
I invoke a rigid scrutiny into my qualifications for the
office, and ihen whatever may be your decision, I
shall most cheerfully acquiesce. Now as in the olden
time I trust the enquiry will be "is he honest and ca
pable?" "is he industrious and accommodating?" It
is by these test. I wish to be tried; and should you
think favorably of my qualifications, I shall not be in
debted for them to a finished education or to the aid of
wealthy or influential connections. These advantages
have been denied me, and I am compelled to rest my
dependence for the gooa opinion of my fellow citizens,
upon such character as I could build up by pursuing
strictly industrious habits and an upright course of
conduct. How far I may have succeeded in gaining
your confidence, is for you to decide. Since the Spriug
of 1554 I have been engaged in the business of Clei k.
Since the summer of 1.55 up to the present time 1
have been engaged in the Circuit Court Office. This
opportunity, I flatter myself, has enabled me to be
come perfectly familiar with the duties of a Clerk—
how 1 have discharged these duties those who have
had business to transact can judge. If you should elect
me my whole time, and whatever abilities I may pos
se.ss,,shall be devoted to an honest and faithful dis
charge of the duties pertaining to the office. I will
always be found in my place, and things belonging to
the office iv their places. Persons having business to
transact shall be promptly attended to in a spirit
accommodation, in short the office will remain yours
while I shall be the humble instrument for the dis
charge of us duties.
Jan. 3. 1860. JOHN PARIS.
ptW I hereby declare myself a candidate to fill the

Should it be conferred on me, I will discharge the du

duity of which I am capable.
