THE SCOTTISH ELEMENT.
The following truly able and eloquent article
has been in type for several weeks, and post
poned 'from day to day to give room to other
matter of an important general news character.
It is from Forney's Philadelphia Press of the .
iith of 'August, and will amply repay our read
era for a careful -perusal :
Tam Scanlan Etsasiar.—Senti-ocantionally, as
"lir_el9,. the glimpArikof the moon," we get a
absrfteamihei of aluifreg.cidawweekly, the 4cer

and better digest of old world Afro% than any
other newspaper on this side of the Atlantic. In
a recent number, the editor—we may now call
him the, surviving editor, as his excellent and
tallented associate, Mr. obert Davidson; was
one of the gallant Seventy-ninth Highlanders
who fell at the battle of Bull Run, on the 21st

Mr. William Nesbitt, of New-York, following
this up, in a subsequent number of the paper,
says •-ity accounts I have lately received from
Sirkimdbright—my native place—l learn that
General IlcUlellan is a descendant of a very an
cient and illustrious Galloway family—the Mc-
Olelltuis of Kirkcudbright and Combie, allied to
the ancient 'Knights of Loohinvar." The fami
ly were ennobled by Charles I, in 1638, the then
repreaentative, Sir Sobers McClellan of 13ombie
being created a peer under the title of Lord
Kirkcudbright. The last lord of .that name
died about thirty years ago, in rather re duoed
circumstances, leaving no is.sue. The title is
now extinct. The ruins of the old family castle
now lurm the most conspicuous ohject in the
ancient burgh of Kirkcudbright, on the banks
of the liver Dee. Many of the deeds of the Mc-
Clellanta are still recounted in the legendary
'lore of the district. The name of McClellan
has been always associated with all that is
noble, patriotic and daring, and I am proud to
thinlr.thAin the person of the worthy American
scion, it is etill so. Sir William McClellan, an
ancestor of the above lamily, also fell at

name Is said to be synonymous with Dowgall,
Donegal, Donald', end MoDougall. They have
been a leading family in western Galloway from
time immemorial ; and like many other ancient
Scottish families, their name and origin are
hidden in the night of antiquity."
We wish that Mr. Nesbitt has told as some
thing about the Camerons. We must endea
vor to relate what he has left untold about
That a gallant Cameron should command a
regiment called the Seventy-ninth, was ex

The Clan Cluuneron, which had a common
origin with the Clan Chattan, was one of the
twelve great Scottish sepia or families entitled
to have supporters to their heraldic arms—a
dignity% peculiar, beyond those twelve, to peers
alone. In the fourteenth century, the Chain
wens and the Chattans divided—on a matter oi
landed property—and their respective cham
pions, thirty against thirty, fought that cele
brated cornbat at Perth, in the year 1896, be
fore King Robert 111., his 'nobility and court,
which Scot_ has so graphically described in
"The Fair Maid of Perth." The Chamerons
conquered, and the Clan Chattans never recov
ered the ciiegra4o of the defeat..
It is asserted by Scottish historians, that the
real name of the Clan °hamar= or. Cameron
was Maceman. The founder of the race was
descended, it was said, from a younger son of
the royal house of Denmark, who assisted at the
restoration of Fergus 11, in. 404. This progeni
tor had a peculiarity in his. nasal organ, and
the Gaelic term Chamtron, L e. Wrsonou,; first
given to the individual, Was eventually mum.-
td by the clan as its actual patrynymic.
The Camerone had their seat in Locha'ber
as far back as can be distinctly trace& The
more modern lareesiloos of Lochiel and
Looharkaig, situated , on the western side of
the Lochy, =in Perthshire, - were originally
granted by the Lord of the Isles to the founder
of clan Ronald, from whose descendants they
passed to the • Gammons. After the defeat of
the clan Chattan, on. the Inch of Perth the
elder branch,.nnder the name of , lifsoßlarten,
made a new clan; but the second son, Came
ron of &cone, headed the Lochiel party, and
declared himself independent. • After the
banal amount of fighting with their neighbors
and rivals, during the next century, Sir Allen
Cameron, succeeded >by his son Sir Ewen,

sessions. In the middle of the; seventeenth
century there was a second Sir Ewen Cameron,
one of the heroes of that age, who was the last
of the Highland chive to aubmit to Cromwell,
who finally obtained his submission on the
honorable terms, simply on his parole, and
without oath or bond, of living in peace with
" the powers that be." Full idemnity was :
made to him and ilia tenants and followers for
all losses sustained from the Commonwealth's
troops, and complete idemnity was granted
to all the Cameron. Lochiel, as Sir Evan
Cameron is generally called, lived In peace
until the Restoration, and remained in tranquil
posaendon of his property, until the Revolution
of IBM, when, refusing a title and a large sum
of money offered him by William of Orange,
on the condition of remaining neutral, he
joined the standard of Janitor IL, which had
been raised by Viscount 'Dundee. He led his
men gallantly at the battle of Ellliorankie, at
which, after Dundee had fallen, le took com
mand of his men, and won the victory in half
an hour. But Colonel Ommon, who succeeded
in the commacid;waa a man of such marked

eldest son. Lochiel died in 1719, at the age of
ninety—a brave, honest, loyal man.
Of this Sir Evan Cameron, Donald, the chiv
akin chief 128111111 Y 'known as "the - gentle Lo
chiel," was the grandson. Thomas Campbell,
the poet, t,rtily, states that, so important was
his influence among the Highland chiefs, it de
pended on his joining with his clan whether
the standard of Prince Charles should be raised
or not in 1746. He was well aware of the hope
lessness of the conduct, but the Prince appeale !
to his loyalty,- and to that he sacrificed his
judgment. '"Had the rest of the clans assem
bled on the field of Cub:Klan behaved like the
Camerons and the Athole Highlanders," Dr.
Black says, "or had even sustained them 'lithe
gallant attack, the name of Cumberland would
not have-acquired so infamous an immortality
in the Highlands of Scotland, and the British
wouldisate beentipated is graoe afterwards
brought upon It eenvention
of Closter-Seven.' Lard Mahon, describing
Lochiel, says he was "full of -courage, hospi
tality and honor ; a true model of that chival
rous character which poets have feigned oftener
than found, in feudal chiefs i" and again, "his
energy in war, his courtesy and charity in
peace, are recorded even by his political (he
could have no private) enemies."
Lochiel, who was wounded at Cullaleni
shared the dangers of Prince Charles' flight,
and accompanied hint to Fninak in September,
1746. "He went," Lord Mahon touchingly
records, "but not with him departed his re
membrance from the Highlanders. For years
and years did his name continue enshrined in
their hearts and familiar to their tongues ; then
plaintive ditties, resounding with his exploits,
and inviting his.return."
Among the forfeitures which followed the
Rebellion of the Forty-five, as it is called, were
these of the Lochiel estates. Eventually, they
were restored, and still remain in possession of
the Cameron family.
In August, 1793, letters of service, authoria
tag him to raise a regiment, were lamed to
Allan Otmeron of Erne*, by the British Gov
ernment No bounty was allowed, as is usual,
but the men were recruited at the sole expense
of the officers. In 1746, and again in 1746, the
clan Cameron numbered about 800 men, and
the regiment was soon raised in 1794. Allan
Caineron was appointed to comm ,nd "the
Cameron Highlanders," which is the Seventy
ninth regiment of infantry in the British
army. They were in the unfortunate cam
paign in Flanders in 1796, and went to
the West Indies in the same ye.sr, and sub
sequently served in the expedition to the
Helder in Egypt; under Sir John Moore in
Portugal, until he fell at Coruna; in the'
expedition to Zealand; from 1810 to 1814, in
the Peninsular War; and at the battles of
Qaatre Bras and Waterloo. From the time the
Cameron Highlanders were embodied, in 1798,
down to the memorable 18th of June (Waterloo
(lay) in 1816, its total of killed and wounded
was 1,188. Their Colonel, who became Lieute
nant General, Sir Allan Cameron, died in 1828.
At the battle, of Fuentes d'Honor, in May,
1811, his eldest son, Lieutenant Colonel Philip
Cameron was killed. - It seems destined that
