A lew Weekly Paper, to be published at Strouds
burg, Monroe County, Pa., and Milford,
Pike County, Pa., simultaneously.
"The whole art of Government consists in the ar
of being honest. Jefferson.
THE JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN
in principle, will be all its title purports, the rirm
and unwavering advocate of the principles and
doctrines of the democratic party, delineated by
the illustrious Jefferson : the right of the peo
ple to think, to speak, and to act, independent
ly, on all subjects, holding themselves respon
sible to no power for the free exercise of this
riulu. z QoJ tieir Country, and her
Laws, which they themselves have created.
A free and untrammeled Press, conducted in a
spirit worthy of our institutions, is a public bles
sings a safeguard to the Constitution under which
we live, and it snild be cherished and support
ed by every true republican. Such, then, it is
designed to make the paper now estab
lished, and as such, the publisher calls up
the enlightened citizens of Monroe and Pik to
aid him in this laudable enterprise. The time
lias arrived when the Press should take a bold
und faarless stand against the evidently increas
ing moral and political degeneracy of the day,
and endeavor, by a fair, candid, and honorable
course, to remove those barriers whioh section
al prejudices, party spirit, and party animosity
have reared to mar the social relations of men
without accomplishing any paramount good.
THE JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN
will not seek to lead or follow any faction, or to
advocate and support the schemes of any par
ticular set of men. It will speak independent
!y on all State and National questions, award
ing to each that support which its merits may
demand, never hesitating, however, to condemn
such measures, as in the opinion of the editor is
justly warranted, holding as a first principle :
" The greatest good to the greatest number."
Believing that the great principles of democ
racy are disregarded by the present Chief Ma
gistrate of the Nation, Martix Van Burex,
the JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN, will
decidedly, but honorably oppose his re-election
to the Iiigh and responsible station which he
It will firmly oppose the " Independent Trea
sury" Scheme, and all other schemes having
for their object tbe concentration in the hands
of one man, and that man the President of the
Nation, all power over the public moneys, a
power, which, when combined with that vest
ed in him by the Constitution as Commander-in-Chief
of the American forces, Military and
Naval, together wih an enormous official pa
tronage, would render him more powerful than
the Executive of the British Nation, and in
short make our Government, de facto an Elec
It will ever maintain that the welfare of ou
Country and the preservation of her Republican
Institutions should be the first and only senti
ments of our hearts in the choice of our public j
servants 5 that honesty, fidelity, and capability,
are the only true tests of merit ; that all men
are created equal, and, therefore, should alike
rnjoy the privileges conferred on them by the
Constitution without being subject to proscrip
tion, or coerced by the influence of party.
The columns of the JEFFERSONIAN
REPUBLICAN will ever be open to the free
discussion of all political questions, believing
as we do. that there is no liberty where both
sides may not be heard, and where one portion
of freemen are denied the privilege of declar
ing their sentiments through the medium of the
Press, because they differ from the majority.
The JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN
will ever take a lively interest in the affairs of
Monroe and Pike, and of the Senatorial and
Congressional Districts with which they
The Farmer, the Merchant, the Mechanic,
and the Laborer, will each find a friend in the
columns of the JEFFERSONIAN REPUB
LICAN. Due care will be taken to furnish its
readers with the latest Foreign and Domestic
News, and such Miscellaneous reading as will
be both interesting and instructive. In short it
is designed to make the paper worthy of an ex
tensive patronage, both from the strictly moral
tone which it will ever possess, and The efforts
of the editor to make it a good and useful
The JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN
will be printed on a super-royal sheet of good
quality, and with good type.

The Trustees of this Institution, have the
pleasure of announcing '.o the public, and par
ticularly to the friends of education, that they
have engaged Ira B. Newman, asSupenntcn-!
dent and Principal of their Academy.
The Trustees invite the attention of parents
and guardians, wbo have children to send from
home, to this Institution. They are fitting up
the building in the first style, and its location
from its retired nature is peculiarly favorable
for a boarding school. It commands a beauti
ful view ot the Uelaware river, near which it
is situated, and the surrounding scenery such
as the lover of nature will admire it is easily
accessible the Easion andMilford Stages pass
it daily, and only 8 miles distant from tho latter
place, and a more salubrious section ot coun
try can nowhere be found. No fears need be
entertained that pupils will contract pernicious
nabits, or be seduced into vicious company it
is removed from all places of resort and those
lnuucements to neglect tneir studies mat are
furnished in large towns and villages.

and guardians demand.
The course of instruction will be thorough

"THE Ladies' Companion, established in May,
1.434 a popular and highly esteemed magazine of
General Literature and the Pine Arts ; enibeliis.li
with gorgeous and costly engravings on steel, and
the Quarterly fashions ; and also with Fashiona
ble and popular Music, arranged for the Piano
Forte, aira Guitar.
Since the publication- df the number for May,
the demand for the Ladies' Companion has been
unprecedented and beyond the most sanguine
anticipations. At the commencement of the' vol
ume an additional number of copies were printed,
which was considered at the time adequate to sa
tisfy all the orders which might be received, and
leave a considerable number on hand for subse
quent calls. The publisher is more than gratified
in stating that the whole of an edition of six thou
sand, five hundred copies, was completely exhaus
ted before the issuing of the third number of the
volume; and, consequently, he was compelled to
reprint a second, edition of two thousand copies,
making the circulation of the Ladies' Companion
eight thousand live hundred, at the termination of
the tenth -volume, fn consequence of this great
and unparalleled increase of new subscribers, he
has determined to commence the new volume for
the ensuing year with thirteen thousand : hoping
that he will thus be enabled to supply all the de
mands for the Ladies' Companion, as well as those,
disappointed in commencing with the tenth vol
ume. The proprietor feels grateful for that en
couragement which has been so lavishly bestowed
upon his magazine, and at the same time he 'begs
to assure the readers of the Ladies' Companion,
that it is determined resolution to meet it with a
corresponding liberality to merit its continuance.
The work appears in beautiful new type, printed
on the finest paper ; smoothly pressed, and neatly
stitched in a handsome cover.
The Ladies' Companion contains a larger quan
tity of reading than any other magazine issued in
in this country, and its subscription price is only
three dollars a year, while the great combination
of talent secured for the coming year will render
it unequalled by any other periodical.
Splendid Steel Engravings, prepared by Mr. A.
Dick, ornament the work one of which accompa
nies each number. These plates are entirely new,
and are engraved at a heavy expense by one of the
best arstists in America, expressly for the maga
zine. The designs are selected with a view of in
teresting the general reader, and enhancing the
value of the work, for its superior pictoral embel
lishments. It is with pride the proprietor announ
ces that the Ladies' Companion is the only maga
zine published, in which new and elegant steel
plates appear regularly. Those accompanying
other monthly periodicals, are generally firstworn
out in annuals. In addition to the engravings
mentioned, a correct plate of the Quarterly Fash
ione .for Ladiesf will appear in the une, Septem
berTJecember, and March numbers, independent
of the usual embellishment. It is the determina
tion of the proprietor, that these fashion plates'
shall appear in a style hitherto unknown It lite
rary character will undergo no change, as it will
remain under the charge of the same Editors as
heretofore. Articles from the pens of the most
distinguished writers, will appear in the forthconv
ing numbers, among which may be enumerated tho
following: Mrs. Holland, Emma C. Embury,

The Musical Department of the Ladies' Compa
nion has ever commanded a large share of atten
tion, and has been looked upon with no little in
terest by its readers, and more especially the La
dies, whom the publisher is anxious to please. It
will continue to be a subject of more than usual
care to him, and to the Professor under whose su
pervision it is placed, to make that portion of the
magazine deserving of the countenance of every
lover of music.
Tae Work in General. Of every department an
equally careful supervision will be strictly exer
cised by the Editors, and all appropriate expendi
tures will be liberally bestowed, as it is the de
sign of the publisher, with the aid of his contribu
tors and the advice of his friends to make the La
llies, Cpmpanion distinguished for the beauty and
accuracy ot s typography, the variety and high
tone of itsJiterary articles, the quality and value
of its musicjlind the unequal splendor of its pic
toral embellishments, and the accuracy of its quar
terly fashions. The proprietor pledges himself to
use all honorable means to maintainthe superiori
ty which the Ladies' Companion has obtained.
For five years he has steadily" pursued a course of
improvement, and he flatters lnrneii mat 111s pre
sent facilities are such as to give the w'Wk eminent
advantages over ah other publications. v
From the foregoing it will be perceived thal the

too great to rendor tho work equal to any other
extant. The flattering and general testimonials
of nearly every contemporary journal in the United
States, and in fact, many on the other side of the
Atlantic, have strongly asserted tho undeniable
claims of tho Ladies' Companion to the support of
the public generally. There is no work that cive
