It Is believed that rAoent events have opened to
nuoh a paper an Important sphere of useful
effort. The time has oome, when the actual
administration of the Government upon Re pub

tat Ions whloh have made those principles so
distasteful to the Bo nth.
But It H not only here, and In this vlolnlty,
that the projectors of the National HepuUxcan
hope to make It useful. To the whole country
they offer a journal which will discuss national
piilltlrs from a national standpoint, and whloh
will iitivor be swerved from patriotlo duty by
nil? ve rpowe ring pressure of local Interest.
