THE DEMOCRATIC NORTHWEST. THURSDAY AUGUST 4, 1831-
Prjuhble The Democrat of Ohio,
proud of their citizenship in this great
Bute, for the purpose of maintaining the
prosperity of tbe commonwealth and to
promote the welfare and haDDineoa of
toe whole people, submit the following
declaration or. principles, upon wuicn
they ask tbe suffrage of the people.
The equality of all citizens before the
law, equal taxation, impartial legislation,
and a free and pure ballot as the corner
tone of free institutions.
Opposition to monopolies and subsidies
01 au kind.
The strictest economy in National,
State and local administrations,that labor
may be likely burdened.
Tbe maintenance and advancement of
the Common School system.
Resolved, That the abuses of the pres
ent contract system in our State Prison
by which the products of criminal labor
are brought into competition with the
products of honert labor, to the great in
jury of the latter, is unwise and vicious,
and should be corrected.
Resolved, That the course of the last
Republican Legislature deserves the con
demnation of the people for its incompe
tency, hypocrasy, its unnecessary and
heavy increase in the burdens of taxa
tion, and for the passage of numerous
pernicious and unconstitutional acts, and
for its reorganization of the State solely
for the purpose and as a medium for the
distribution of spoils.
Resolved, That as the humanities are
non-partisan, and as the treatment of
criminals should be non-political, the
management of the charitable and puni
tive institutions of the State should be
free from partisau changes or appoint
ments. Resolved, that we are in favor of a civil
service reform, whereby offices shall be
held to the public trusts to be adminis
tered for the public good, not spoils to be
enjoyed as the reward of partisan zeal or
Resolved, That the Democrats of Ohio,
in this year as in all years, are in favor of
the largest individual liberty consistent
with the public order, and are opposed to
legislation merely sumptuary.
Resolved, That the recent discovery of
enormous peculations in high Federal
places, and the Republican attempt to
purchase votes by open corruption, should
convince the country that the Republi
can organization is not worthy of public
Resolved, That the power delegated to
the General Government "to regulate
commerce among the States," as well as
the power reserved to the States to regu
late commerce within their own borders,
should both be exercised to prevent un
iust discriminations, and unrp-isnnnhle
charges by our railroads.
A tariff for revenue, levied and adjust
ed in its details with a view to equity in
the public burdens and the encourage
ment of productive industries without
creating monopolies; and we favor the
appointment of a Commissioner to sug
gest methods of revision which shall ac
complish this result.
The committee also recommended the
adoption of the following, though not in
cluding it in the platform:
Resolved, That we deeply denlore the
recent attempt upon the life of the Presi
dent of the United States by an assassin
and denounce assassination in a Republic
as the highest and most revolting of
crimes, and we extend to the President
and his family our deepest sympathies,
' and our earnest hopes that a speedy re
covery may.be vouchsafed him.

The Cyclopaedia War.
ihe month of July, isai, witnesses the completion of the largest and most important
literary work this country and the century have seen. It is the Library of Universal
Knowledge, large type edition, in 15 large octavo volumes, containing 10 per cent more
matter than Appleton's Cyclopaedia, at less than one-fifth its cost, and 20 per cent more
than Johnson's Cyclopaedia, at a little more than one-fourth its cost.
Chambers's Encyclopaedia, which forms the basis of the Library of Universal Knowl
edge (the last London edition of 1880 being reprinted verbatim as a portion of its con
tents), is the laborious product f of the ripest British and Euro
pean scholarship. It has devel- If I CTO I V Ped thrugh a century of Cy
clopaedia making; its various waswa editions having been many times
revised, in successive years, till it has come to be universally recognized, by those com
petent to judge, as standing at the very front of great aggregations of knowledge, and
better adapted than any other Cyclopaedia for popular use. It contains such full and
important information as the ordinary reader, or the careful student, is likely to seek,
upon about 25,000 subjects in every department of human knowledge. Chambers's
Encyclopaedia, however, is a foreign production, edited and published for a foreign
market, and could not be ex- mm mmm pected to give as much promi
nence to American topics as hAI .1 fl A American readers might de
sire. To supply these and Wi llv other deficiencies a large corps
of American editors and writers have added important articles upon about 15,000 topics,
covering the entire field of human knowledge, bringing the whole number of titles under
one alphabetical arrangement to about 40,000. Thus the work is thoroughly Americanized,
and the Library of Universal Knowledge becomes at once the latest and most complete
Encyclopaedia in the field, at a mere fraction of the cost of any similar work which has
PujQ of the 15 volumes, complete, in etra cloth binding, $15.00. In half
I I V W Russia, sprinkled edges, $20.00. In half Russia, gilt top, $22,50. In full
library sheep, marbled edges, $25.00.
The superlative value and importance of this great Encyclopaedia lies especially in the
fact that it is brought within the reach of every one who aspires after knowledge and
Culture. ItismjZyalibra- mm I . ry of universal knowl
edge. It brings a liberal K AM Q 1 If I M education easily within
the reach even of every lW WIMHWII plowboy of the country
and apprentice boy of the city. Every farmer and every mechanic in the land owes it to
himself and to his children that such a Cyclopaedia shall henceforward form a part of the
outfit of his home. To the professional man, and every person of intelligence in every
walk of life, a Cyclopaedia is a necessity. ...
Of course the old and wealthy publishers who have grown rich (it is said that the
Appletons have made a profit of nearly two million dollars on their Cyclopaedia) from the
sale of their high-priced publications are not pleased that their monopolies are broken and
their power overthrown. Of course the book agents and booksellers who have been used
to getting from 40 to Co per cent commission for selling these high-priced books are
$ g f f f fp I not so well pleased to sell the

though those who are not short-sighted discover that their own interests, after all, are
identical with the interests of the people, and their real profits, in the end, are increased,
by the immense sales which result from meeting the people's wants. The majority of
booksellers, however, are better pleased to slander than to sell this and our numerous other
standard and incomparably low-priced publications. But tiie Literary Revolution has
always looked to the people, in whose interests it.is; for its patronage, and it has never
looked in vain, as our more than mmm Af 14
