CItAND HAVEN, MICHIGAN.
WEDNESDAY EVENING; DEC. 22, 1S58.
TO THE PUBLIC.
In tltis, the first number of our paper,
it will be expected that there should be
an exposition of the principles upon which
it will bo conducted. The press of our
country is the grand agent in tho forma
tion and direction of public opinion.
When used for corrupt and venal pur
poses it i3 n powerful engine of cviL
When directed by honesty and iutelli
gence it ia lh conservator of reform and
progress. . It should occupy no neutral
position, but speak candidly, boldly, and
with fraukness, upon all measures where
tho public good ia concerned. . It should
sock that popularity which follows, not
that which is followed after. lt9 morali
ty bhould be pure. Its independence un
doubted. Its principles should be such
as would comnicud themotlves to the
judgment and consciences of nun.
These aro brielly our views of the
power of tho press and tho mauner in
which it should bo conducted. And wo
have established this paper, not merely
because of the business it may nliord, but
with a sincere and earnest desire to pro
mote what we conceive to bo sound and
just views of our moral and political re
lations. This, then, is to be a moral aud
political press. The morality we shall
inculcate, will, at least, not dilfer, and wo
humbly trust it shall be found in accord
ance with the charity, purity, and love,
taught in the cxainplo and precepts of
Him who could not err. Its politics will
be democratic. It will advocate tho prin
ciples of that party of which Jeffkrson
was the founder, of which James Bu
chanan is, to duy, tho representative, and
Stephen A. Douglas tho able exponent
We refer them to tho history of our coun
try, almost evcry pflgo of which is anev-
idenco of thoir justice and souud policy.
This government, since the days of Tuos.
Jeffehson, haj been almoste.clusively
under the control of the democratic par
ty. To that gran-1, national, aud consorv-
nt'tva tmrl v are wc irulolid fur its nasi,
progroh, iu invent bluuuity, ana grand
eur, together with all its glorious prom
ises for the future. That party, we bc
lvc, to-day, to Ikj the one to which true
and enlightened patriotism must look for
tho protection of our constitution and the
perpetuity of this confederacy. Its prin
ciples, if fairly carried out, will quiet the
storms of sectionalism and fanaticism, now
sweeping across our country, and bring it
back to safety and repose. We ask you
to look, without prejudice, at those prin
ciplo. and wo feel you must commend
1st. Non-intervention by the general
government in the affairs of the Territories,
leaving tho people thereof perfectly free
to regulate their own domestic institu
tions in their own way, subject only to
tho constitution of tho United States.
2d. A revereuco fur the constitution,
and obedience to the laws of tho land ; a
strict const ruction of the first, and observ
ance of the last, as authoritatively ex
pounded by our judicial tribunal.
Sd. That tho highest law, so far as
the political conduct of a citizen of this
country is concerned, is the constitution
of tho United States, the constitutions of
tho respective Slates, and laws rightfully
enacted under thein, and our entire and
scornful repudiation of the dx:trino that
a man's private opinion can justly protect
him in defying the laws of his country.
4 th. . The rights of all the States, and
tbe rights of each State, to be justly and
impartially guarded by tbo general gov
ernment, and all constitutional guarantees
to be executed in the spirit and the letter.
5th. A belief that this government
was organized by white men, for tho ben
efit of white men, and that white men,
under the law, and of riyht, shall judge
of tho timo when to grant, and tho extent
of the privileges to bo granted to the in
ferior Negro' now in this country ; and
that under no circumstances should they
be placed upon an equality, either aocial-
ly or politically, with the white race, but,
occupy that subordinate station assigned
thm bv nnture.
Cth. That whenever tho safety of thii
government demands the acquisition of
territory, if wo can not acquire it by pur
chase, wo Lavo an' undoubted right to
take it by force, and rctaiu it as long as
our safety is jeoparded; and that we, as
the dominant people upon tho Amcricau
continent, can not allow foreign govern
ments to interfere in matters entirely
American. That we aro pledged to, and
will maintain, as a party, the doctrine
known as the Monroe doctrine. : ' ' .
We have above given as concise a view
as possible of what wo think are demo
cratic doctrines, upon questions attracting
tho greatest attention from tho American
people. There are various other ques
tions of policy which, we have not room
in this article to allude to, and we have
confined ourselves, principally, to tho
points urged by our opponents.
Upon theso points, one aud all, we flro
pledged to do battle. We do not feel
disposed to yield a hair to tho spirit of
fanaticism, now so rife among us, and as
long as wo conduct this paper we shall
maiutain tho abovo doctrines. They are
all raoro or less intimately connected with
the subject tf slavery; and while we
think there are many questions of more
practical import, to the citizens of thii
government, thau that one, yet we are
forced by the republican party to d!s
cuss that alone. Wo accept the issue
and have no fear of tho result.
Tho democratic party has never yet
suflercd but a temporary defeat, whilo all
political organizations opposing it, have,
one after another, been swept from exist
ence, leaving scarcely a memory behind.
It is but a few yeara since it met and
vanquished the old whig party, headed as
it was, by as noble and gallant leaders as
ever commanded an opposing force. And
can it bo possiblo that tho faction, now
styling themselves the republican party,
and whose name is a burlesque upon the
principles they advocate, can usurp the
place of tho whig parly and succeed.
That party really possessed talents, pa
inousiij, ana rcspcciaoilu it was a
national parly, whoso principles found fa
vor alike in all soctious of our Union.
. v u
Contr.isL the leaders of xnem tu-
Uay with tho old whig party. Does
modern republicanism find favor alike in
the North and the South? or is it arrav
ing one half of the Union against tho oth
er, and striving between the two sections
to "raise tho devil that it can nut lay?"
It is the duty of the democratic party
to " lay" that devil, and they intend to,
and will Jay him so (old that he never
will get warm again, until the fires of his
nativo region heats him up. " So mote

' OUR VILLAGE."
Orand Haven has been at length con
nected with , tho great world. The D.
& M. R R. has put an end to our soli
tude. For twenty lonrrt tedious, dreary
winters wo have been shut up in solitary
confinement, for no fault of ours that we
wot of, for, if you take our word for it,
we are ahem I we were about saying,
dear reader, that we are a most virtuous,
sober, religious people as you can find on
this continent; but as that would be a
bouncer, wo must hesitate, and, as the
lawyers say, enter a demurrer At all
events, here we were, winter after winter,
like tho bears in their hibernation, as tho
story goes, sucking our paws. No very
great enjoyment, you will say. Well, it
is nothing to boast of, we admit, 'especial
ly, as wo do not claim to belong to the
ursino family, however approaching them
iu continuity we may have lived But
now, thanks to steam and the iron horso,
we believe we are on the hi;rb. road to
advancement; and we see no reason why
wo should not become tho Milwaukeo ol
Michigan. Let any man look at our fit-
cilitics for commcrco with Chicago, Mil
waukee and tho great West, and theu our
newly formed communication with the
great marts of tho East, by which we are
brought within two days journey of New
York, and two and a half of Boston.

lumbcrinsc establishments, and our fishe

Now that these elements be rightly
employed to accomplish the object iu view,
there are two things especially necessary,
One is, to elevate tho moral character of
our citizenship. Our population is in
creasing. Last summer it was twelve
hundred, sinco which it has largely in
creased, and it doubtless will increaso.
Now with this increasing population there
will doubtless be, nay, there is notr, a
largo importation of vice. Drunkenness
and profanity are awfully prevalent.

tho other side of tho river, where pollu

character, but tne unaying natures vt men
SVe are now laying foundations, and up
on tho character of tho foundation de
ponds that of tho superstructure. If the
one be laid in tho morality of tho citizon
ship; iu virtuous habits; in a high-toned
sense of rectitude, which abhors wrong,
w hether dressed in open garb, or clothed in
the technicalities of law, our futuro histo
ry will be ono to bo proud of, and vice
versa. We call, then, upon our public
men ; upon thoso who are tho conserva
tors of tho public peace, and of good mor
als. We call upon our property holders.
We call upon tho ministers of religion,
and upon the virtuous and good among
our citizens, to unito and put and end to
thoso scenes of vice, intoxication, and pro
fanity, which meet tho public gaze, and
are silently, and insiduously corrupting
tho morals of tho youth of our village,
and, perhaps, even now, preparing somo
of them for a felou's cell. Will wo get
a response to this call ! We shall see.
y Again, if our village is to grow, if
wo are to become a city, and wo are strong
inthat belief, then our increasing popu
lation must find homes. Thcro i3 not
now half house room for tho demand.
Men will get almost any rent for their
houses. It is plain that if tho chief hold
ers of property rcfuso to sell as wo have
becu informed that they do, except at an
enormous and oppressive rate, except at
a price unequaled in any similar place in
this State, then they are injuring thom-
selvcs, and are tho greatest foes to the
prosperity of the place; and it will be
found that they will bo tho means of
building up a rival village on the other
side of the river. We hope they will not
pursue this suicidal course, and that bet
tor counsels will prevail.
Let us, then, all unito our energies for
tho good of our growing tillage, and
earnestly labor for its prosperity.

WINTER EVENINGS, OR A JOURNEY
, AMONG THE STARS.
I have alwaja loved winter evenings, since
ta j first recollection!. ' When I u a little
boy, and sat on a stool at mother's feet, and lis
tened to stories aboot Moses, David and Goliah,
Daniol or Jonah, or law horses, soldiers or
houses on tho bright coala in the flre-plaoe no
season was as pleasant to me as tbe long, cheery
winter evenings. As t grew op and exchanged
visions upon tho ootvis for history, and nursery
tales, for books of travels, winter evenings still
maintained their plaoe in my affections. I loved
them more than spring, with ita flowers and
birds, mora than summer, with its fragrant
meads and waving fields of buttor-oups, and
meadow lilies, moro than autumn, with its or
chards of fruit, and fields of yellow grain. And
now, sinoe the skating and coasting parties of
boyhood, and tho many amusements of School
days are all past, winter evenings have a charm
for me that nothing else In nature possesses.
I love the long winter evening "from six to ten,"
in which I can converse with the great, the good,
and the illustrious of the past. But books and
the past are not all there ore of interest. A live,
aetive world, and a unircrse, of which this world
is less than a grain of sand, compared with its
whole mass, invite mo to their contemplation.
Closely wrapped in overcoat and shawl I started
out, an evening not long since, and, in imagina
tion, took a stroll among tho stars.
Passing at once beyond the other planots, I
baited at Neptune, the most distant planet yet
discovered in our solar system, distant from our
earth two thousand seven hundred aud fifty-Ovo
millions ot miles. I belted hero for a momont
to look beyond and compute the distance to the
nourc-it Used star for I had determined to spend
that evening in a ramblo among thoso twinkling
worlds. I found that I had but just started on
my journey, for between mo and Sirius there
was yet more than twenty billions of miles, moro
than seven thousand three hundred and sixteen
times further than I had already come. With
this distance before mo, no time was to be lout,
so away I went for Sirius. Having arrived at
that "brightest star of tho heavens,"' I looked
back to tho place from whence I had started, and
behold I our lilllo world appears not ai I left it,
bat as it was throe years and ono hundred and
four days before. This, at first, appeared stran
to me, but I soon remembered that light passes
through space at the rate of only ono hundred
and ninety-throe thousand ruilos per second,
hence the ray of light by which I saw our earth
had been nearly threo aud a third years on its
journey. The scene boforo mo was interesting
and amusing. All of my friends, and myself
even, were plainly visible: just as wo were
one thousand ono hnndrod and ninety-nine day
before. I had, really, gone back three years
and was living thorn over again. But I could
not remain long in apluce, for I was anxious to
see, and to hum, so I hastened on, passing star

point 1 again viewed our littlo earth. There it
lay, "like a mote in the suu," more than nine
hundred millions of millions of miles away, and
presenting the phenomenon of its actual condition,
one hundred and seventy-five years ago. Here,
while viewing otir solar system, which appeared
to be only a fixed star with telescopic compan
ions, I noticed that it constantly approached me,
Doos tho sun move ?" I asked myself, aston
ished at tho phenomenon. " It must certainly
docs," I was obliged to answer, after soason
of careful observation. From observations from
this, and one or two other stand points, I soon
was alio to compute its motion, and found, to my
great surprko, that our whole solar system Is
constantly moving toward Hercules, at the rate
of about eight miles per socond, and that it
passes aronnd its center onco in 18,200,000 of
our years. From this star I hastened on still
further, for t wished to explore the arcana of
nature, and learn its mysteries, I did not stop
until I reached a star of the sixteenth magni
tude one of the smallest seen from our planet
by the aid of the telescope bonce I was at the
boundary of tolescopio vision. Between me and
my earth-home or rather within tho circle of
which our earth Is the eentor, and my position,
a point in tho circumference, more than a mill
ion times a million suns, and worlds with moons
were revolving in systems innumerable. JTor
had I reached the boundary of the universe.
Without this circlo, and mingled and connected
with tho systems within it, were sans and worldi,
compared with which, as to number, those with
in are but a leaf in a forest, or a drop of water
in tho ocean. Harmony everywhere prevailod,
each system keeping its anpointod track. Our
sun, with iU planets and its satellites seemed to
be only one of many similar systems, forming
a larger system, each of whose suns, or central
bodies, wcro so far distant from each other that
to obsorvcrs, on the surface of any one of them,
each of tho others appeared only at a fixed star.
The center of this large system see mod, in tarn,
to be but one, perhaps, of a thousand similar
bodies, rovolviug around their center, and that
with others, around another, and to os, uutil the
final grunt tenter is doubtless the Tnnsxc or God.
Like a child, when it first ventures from the
paternal roof, I dared not go out of sight of the
spot called home. I bad seen ftv more than I
oould comprehend. My head rew diny with
tbo thought of the vastnest of the universe in
which I am, and in profound reverence for iu
Great Designer, Buildsr and Governor, I turned
toward tbe earth. A thought, a fall, a shudder,
and I found myself safer at my table fanning
