THE WHITE MAN'S PAPER.
--Clubs for 1867!
THE BEST N. Y. WEEKLY PUBLISHED I
NEW YORK DAY-BOOK
The New York Dat-Book enters upon
of 1867 with a larger circulation,
than that of any Democratic paper published in
tht world, and that circulation is steadily in
creasing and extending in every aireotion.
It has never been the ergan or mere " party
Democracy," but rather the exponent of
those liberal principles of human Govern
ment -whioh our forefathers wrung, with
bloody sweat, from the tyrants of 1778.
Standing on the foundation of the Declara
tion of' Independence, that "all (white) men
are created equal," and therefore entitled to
equal .rights, it is opposed to all forms and
degrees of special legislation that conflict
with this grand central troth of Democra
cy, and over' all, and above all, does it com
bat that monstrous treason To -American
liberty, which,' thrusting the,'negro eloment
into our political syslem mu of necessity
wreck the whole mighty fabrio left ns by our
fathers. God has created white men superi
or, aud negioes inferior, and therefore all the
efforts' of the past five years to abolish His
work, and equalize with negroes every law
violated, every State Constitution over
thrown, every life sacrificed, and every dol
lar expended, are necessarily just so many
steps toward national suicide ; and the sim
ple and awful problem now upon us is just
t hia shall we recover our reason and re-
tra3e 01ir -r maroh on to Mongrelism.
.... i ., ,L.
gOCUlL auarcny, uuu ma luiai iuiu ui urn
country ? :' .
Tuts Dat-Book, therefore, demands the
restoration of the "Union as it was "a
fm'on of to-equal State upon the white basil,
as the only hope, nnd the only means possi
ble' under heaven for raving the gTand ideas
of 1776, the fundamental principles of Amer
ican liberty, and if the real friends of free
dom, and tho earnest believers in that sacred
and glorious cause in which the men of the
Revolution' offered up their lives, will now
labor to expose the ignorance, delusion and
treason of the Mongrel party, il will succeed,
and the whole while Republic of Washington
be restored again in all its original bonefi
oence and grandeur.

Tear of the publication of Tu Cams is

tarn, we issue our Annual Prospeetntsi. ' We
need not recapitulate its history during the

those who have read it, of its servicer ia be
half of the great principles of the Democra

what time has shown, to be the best interests
of the country. Its merits bave beem ac
knowledged from the time it was started by
that veteran and distinguished journalist,
Gov. Mcdart. and ils present conductors
simply claim for it the credit of an earnest
and nndeviating adherence to the plan and
prineiples of Its founder. In all the politi

failure of some, tbespoetaoy of others, and
the unguarded weakness of many, exponents
of Democracy, Tuc Cams baa never demo

b.en allured by temporary expedients, in
timidated by threats, nor disheartened by
defeat and disaster.
On the score of prinoiple we efaira for it
the merit of fidelity, honesty, and eoasisu
ency. As a newspaper we claim for It the
merit of being an exponent of Vfestern in
terests and ideas, a reliable journal of the
times, a valuable companion of the farmer,
the mechanic, the business man. and the
family oirele. It is our aim to fill the large
sheet with matter ef real iaterest and per
manent value to disease questions of prin
ciple that are of real significance, to inform,
improve, and instruct, as well as amuse
and to this end we discard the idle twaddle

it to the home oirele of all.
The politioal views of Tub Crisis scarcely
require definition. It Ib in favor of Demo
cratic principles in all their breadth and
purity, as expounded by Thomas jErrsRsoir,
and- the other really great men and founders
of the Government, and upon which the
Government was successfully conducted for
Seventy years. It is opposed to the Aboil
tion despotism which now oontrols the Fed'
eral Government, in all its shapes and un
der whatever device it may appear.
of Congress, and to all the machinery that
the Jacobins have devised and put in opera
tion to overthrow Republican Government,
inaugurate anarohy and absolutism, enslave
the people, and oppress them with odious
taxes, and tyrannical, insane, and oorrupt
legislation. And in advocating the correct
principles and opposing the evils we have
named, we shall continue to do it without
fear or favor.
In order to successfully conduct such a
paper as Tbb Cbisis, it must have a large
list of subscribers , and to secure that we
rely upon our friends and those who have
taken the paper. We cannot compete with
the cheap, shoddy publications of the East
by offering bogus premiums or employing
traveling agents; but we earnestly solioit
the aid of our readers in extending our cir
culation by their personal efforts.. It will
require but little exertion from each, but
the aggregate will enable us bj furnish them
with a paper fully equal in size, superior in
print to any Eastern publication, and of a
great deal more interest and importance to
Western Democrats. Friends, shall we oall
upon you in vain, for the small fivor we
ask, and in a cause of such magnitude and
value ? No is the time to send in sub
scriptions for the new volume, which, at the
end of the year, will be worth thrice the
amount of the subscription pi ice.,
Our terms are $3.00 per year, $1,50 for
six months, $1.00 for four months. . .
One extra Copy - will be sent to any one
getting up a club of six yearly subscribers;
and to anv one sending a club of ten for six
or four months an extra copy for the olub
time. . ,
For a club of ten yearly subscribers
