It presents tp its readers selectiqns from
ho bust European Periodi'ais, of Literary
nd Sclentife articles, of Novels and Sket
bes, which, having alteady received the
mprimature of an enlightened tagte, cannot
iat prove acceptable to the 8outhern public.

Ind a special aim of the proprietors of this

kowever, under the plea of this design, en

leserve. In the development, of these ques
ions,.ite object will be to make a bractical
6pplication of the doctripe of StaI Is Rights

which is to denonstrat e liberty regulated by

rindicate those elemtents. of National Inde

lard of intelligence and refinement, by ac
iumulated oapital, varied industry and by
obundant facilities of intermunication. It
will promote 4$o adoption of all those meas

luty to urge upon the States the develop

kggregate ability of the separate States, the
power of the Confederate States will be made
11anifest. It is thus that the collision of
seotional interest and the oppression of a
ynnunton head will be avoided.

A New Paper #an Ricianond.
'HE undersigned propose to publish a
J1 Daily. Paper, upder the title of "The
Richmond Herald," on or about the 15th
>f January ult.
It will be entlely independent in politics,
but will nevertheless.scoord to the Admin
Atration a just support In all measures
which, in the opinion of its conductors,
nay be deemed promotive of the good or
he cause in which we are engaged. A
proper criticism of such acts as will be
eemed adverse to this object, will be, of
3ourse, conusistant with the Independent,
ihtracter under which the paper is to. be
In the matter of General News it will be
rotnd to keop pace with the leading jour
mals ot the day, witloit will have added to
it, intho matter of flihancial intelligence a
reature such as,' we venture to say, no pa
per in the Confederacy can boast of. Edi
torials from the pen of one of the ablest
6handial writers In this or ' any other couU
Lry' will be presended ift ach.number.
For reasons. rot now. proper to be men.
iloneri, we foibear to give lbhe names of
those who shalleompose. the regular edito
rial staff ; but we Satter ourselves that
when they shall appear, they will be found
to constitute such an array of talent -as can
Lot be excelled on this continent. .
The well known character of the indivi
dual whose name appears below, as a ste
nographio reporter, furnishes, we presume,
a guarantee that, in all that relates to Im
portant political speeches and debates.
whether in legislative assemblies or out of
them, the "Herald" will'present advanta
ges certainly not to be excelled by any pa
per in the Confederacy.
The farming Interests will be- faithfully
vindicated, and care taken io disseminate
the earliest intelligence which a propEr re
gard for the welfare of that great -element
of national wealth and power shall demand.
-In the matter of correct commercial in
telligence, equal seal shall be manifested,
our object being to assign to each of these
lepartments an editor of known 'experience
Arrangements are on foot bywhich to
oecuv6 the earliebt foreign news, and the
paper will contain such editorial t alent as
will fully elucidata the bearing of, foreign
dIplomacy upon Southern interests.
Ia short, "The Richmond Herald" will
be found to combine every feature of Inter
est which th8 requirements of the present,
Drisia demand. .
The enterprise is respectfully commend
i to the favo? and patronage of the citi
tens of the Southern Confederacy.
