''meni wnioa our ioreiavuore vruug, mm
.bloody sweat, from the tyrantB of 1776.
Thb Nbw Yoek Dat-Book enters upon the
threshold of 1867 tfitA larger circulation
than that of any Democratic paper publiihed in
tht world, and that circulation is steadily In
creasing and extending in every direotion.
It has never been the rgan of mere " party
Democracy ,"' but rather, the exponent of
those liberal principles of human Govern-
Standing on the foundation or tne declara
tion Of independence, mat i mea
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 truth of Democra
cy, and over all, and above all, does it com
bat, that monstrous treason . to American
liberty, which, thrusting the negro toman
into our political system, mutt of necetiitg
wreck the whole mighty fabric lelt us by our
fathers. God has created white men superi
or, and negroes inferior, and therefort all the
efforts of the past five years to abolith His
workyand equalise -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 snicide ; and the sim
ple and awful problem now upon us is just
this shall we recover our reason end re
trase our steps, or mar oh on to Monerelism,
social anarchy, and the total ruin of our
country 7 '
Tun Pat-Book, therefore, demands the
restoration of the " Union as it wB "a
Union of co-equal State upon the white basis,
as the only hope, and the only means possi
ble under heaven for raving the grand ideas
of 1776. the fundamental principles of Amer
ican liberty, and if the real friends of free
dom, and the earnest believers in that sacred
and elorious 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, t'l will succeed,
and the whole white Republic of Washington
be restored again in all its original benefi
cence and grandeur.

Tii Rentli Volume and the 8eventh
ve of the Dublioatioa of Thb Caisis is
about to begin, and, in accordance with cus
tom, we issue our Annual Prospectus, we
need not recapitulate its history during the
stormy years of its existence, nor remina
those wno nave reau 14 01 no u
half of the great principles of the Demoora-
nd what its conduotors oondeivod, and
what time has shown, to be the best) interests
nf 1 he country. Its merits have been ac-
tr.n.iedoad from the time it was started by
iw veteran and distinguished " journalist,
Mcdart. and its present conduotors
simply claim for it the, credit of an earnest
and nndeviating aanerenoe 10 me umu mu
principles of its founder. In all the politi
cal vicissitudes of the pasMix years the
failure of some, theapostaoy of others, and
the unguarded weakness of many, exponents
of Democracy, Thb Crisis has never demo
ted from the straight path of principle, nor
bten allured by temporary expedients, In
timidated by threats, nor disheartened by
defeat and disaster.- -
On the loore of prinolple we olaim for it
the merit of fidelity, honesty, and consist
ency. As a newspaper we claim for it the
merit of being an txponent of Western in
terests and ideas, a reliable journal of the
times, a valuable companion of the farmer,
the mechanio, the business man, ana the
family cirole. ..It is our aim to fill the large
sheet with matter of real interest and per
manent value to discuss 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
which eoes so far to fill up the daily papers,
the obsoene advertisements and the sensa
tional folly of the day. We could publish
hundreds of letters from the best men of the
country approving of the course of Thb
Cbisis in this reBpeot, and to this course we
propose to rigidly adhere. The reliable
market reports and the great amount . of
statistical, agricultural, financial, and po
litical information we publish, is Of Jm
nortance and value to business men, farm.
ers, mechanics, and politicians'; while the
carefully selected paee of literary miscella
ny which each number contains, commends
it to the home cirole of all. "
The political views of Tub Crisis scarcely
require definition.' Itris in favor of Demo
cratic principles in an ineir oreaaiu ana
purity, as expounded by Thomas Jefferson,
and the other really great men and founders
of the Government, and upon which the
Government was successfully conducted for
seventy years. It ia opposed to the Aboli-
der whatever device it may appear. It is
opposed to tbe thieving jascality, ibe ty
rannical assumptions, the stupid and bar
barous policies and the lawless usurpations
of Congress, and to all the machinery that
theJacobins have devised and put. in opera
tion to overthrow Republican Government,
Inaugurate anarchy 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 Tb Crisis, it, must have a large
Hat of subscribers; and to secure that we
rely upon our friends sad those who have
taken tfce paper. We cannot compete with
the cheap, shoddy publications of .the East
by offering bogus premiums, or employing
traveling agents ; but we earnestly solicit
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 U3 to furnish them
with a paper fully equal in size, superior in
print to any Eastern publication, aDd of a
great .deal more interest and importance to
Western Democrats.. Friends, shall we call
upon you in vain, for the. Bmall favor we
ask, and in a cause of such magnitude and
value? Now is the time to send in sub
scriptions for the new volume, whioh, at the
end of the year, will be worth thrice the
amount of the subscription price. :
Our terms are $3.00 per year, $1,50 for
