Scarcely too much can be said
in praise of onions for fowls.
They seem to be a preventive
and remedy for various disea
ses to which domestic fowls are
liable. Having frequently tes
ted their excellence, wo can
speak' understandingly. For
gapes and inflamation of the
throat, eyes and head, onions
are almost a specific. "We
would, therefore, recommend
giving fowls, and especially
chickens, as many as
will eat, as often as twice
or three times a week. They
should be finely chopped. A

OUR SPICE BOX, PROSPECTUS
Tn Seventh Volume and the Seventh
Year of the publication of Tus Crisis is
about to bogin, and, in accordance with cim-
tom, we issue our Annual Prospectus. e
need not recapitulate its history during the
stormy years oi its existence, nor reminu
those who have read it, of its services in be
half of the great principles of the Democra
cy, and what its conductors oonoeived, and
what time has shown, to be the best interests
of the country. Its merits have been ac
knowledged from the time it was staged by
that veteran and distinguished journalist,
Gov. Medart. and its present conductors
aimnlv claim for it the credit of an earnest
and undevialing adherence to the plan and
principles of its founder. In all the politi
cal vicissitudes of the pas six years the
failure of some, the apoetaoy of others, and
the unguarded weakness of many, exponents
of Democracy, Tun Crisis has never denia
ted from the straight path of prinoiple, nor
bten allured by temporary expedients, in
timidated by threats, nor disheartened by
defeat and disaster.
On the score of prinoiple we claim for it
the merit of fidelity, bonesly, and consist
ency. AS a newspaper we oiunu ui to
merit of being an exponent of Western in
terests and ideas, a reliable journal of the
timoa, a. valuable companion ol tue farmer,
the mechanio, the business man, and the
family circle. - It is our aim to fill the large
sheet with matter of real interest and per
manent value to discuss questions of prin
oiple that are of real significance, to inform,
improve, ana insiruui, ns ni
nd in this end we disoard the idle twaddle
which goes so far to fill up the daily papers,
the obscene advertisements and the sensa
innni fnllv of the dav. Wo could publish
hundreds of letters from the best men of the
country approving of the course oi Anu
Crisis in this respect, and to this oourse we
nronnan to ricidlv adhere. The reliable
market, venorts and the ereat amount of
statistical, agricultural, finanoial, and po
litical information we publish, is ' of im
portance and value to business men, farm-
ers, mechanics, ana politicians ; wuuu me
carefully seleoted pae of literary miscella
ny which each number contains, commends
it to the home oireie oi an.
The political views of Thr Crisis scarcely
require definition. It is in favor of Demo
cratic principles in all their breadth and
t.iiritv. as expounded by Thomas Jiffkbson,
and the other really great men and founders
of the Government, and upon which tn
Government was successfully conducted for
seventy years. It is opposed to the Aboli
tion despotism whioh now controls the Fed
eral Government, in all its shapes and un
der whatever device it may appear. It is
nnnnned tn ihe entire Abolition thoory of
nnlitics. and all the monstrosities, humbugs,
nrl delusions which erow out of it. It U
opposed to the thieving aascality, Ihe ty
rannical assumptions, the stupid and bar
barous policies and the lawless usurpations
of Congress, and to nil the machinery that
the Jaoobms have devisea ana pur. in opera
tion to overthrow Republican uovcrnment,
inaugurate anarchy and absolutism, enslave
the people, and oppress them with odious
taxes, and tyrannical, insane, and corrupt
legislation. And in advocating the correct
principles and opposing the evils we have
named, we shall continue to uo it without
fear op favor. , . ; . :. - - . ; : c- - .
In order to successfully conduct such a
paper as The Crisis, it must have a large
list of subscribers ; and to secure that we
rely upon our friends and those who have
taken the paper. Wo 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 bv their personal efforts. It will
require but little exertion from each, but
the aggregate will enable us to 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 call
upon tou in vain, for the small favor we
ask, and in a cause oi such magnitude and
value? Now is the time to send in sub
scriptions for the new volume, which, at the
end of the year, will bo worth thrice the
amount of the subscription price.
Our terms are S3.00 per year, $1,50 for
six months, S1.00 for four months.

NEW YORK DAY-BOOK
Tne New York Day-Book cntora upon the
threshold;; of 1807 with a larger circulation
than that 0 ay Democratic paper pulilhhed in
tin world, and that circulation is steadily in
creasing and extending in every direction.
It'has never been the organ of mere " party
Demooraoy," but rather the exponent of
those liberal principles of human Uovern
ment which our forefathers wrung, with
bloody sweat, from the tyrants of 1778.
Standing on the foundation of the Declara
tion of Independence, that " all (wAfte) men
are created equal," and thereon entitled to
equal rights, it is opposed to all formB and
degrees of special legislation that conflict
with this erand ceutral troth of Democra
cy, and over all, and above all, does it com
bat that monstrous treason to Amerioan
liberty, which, thrusting the negro element
into our political sysiem, mut of necetsily
wreck tho whole mighty fabvio left us by our
fathers. God has created while men superi
or, and neeroes inferior, and therefore all the
efforts of the past five years to abolith Hia
work, and equalize with negroes every taw
violated, every State Constitution over
thrown, every li fe sacrificed, and every dol
lar expended, are necettarily just bo many
step's toward national suicide , and the sim
ple and awiul proDicra now upon us is juat
this shall we recover our1 reason and re-
traoe our steps, or march on to Mongrelism,
Booial anarchy, and the total ruin of our

ftB the only hope, and the only means possi
ble under heaven for caving the grand ideas
of 1770, the fundamental principles' of Amer
ican liberty, and if the Teal friends of free
dom, and the earnest believers in that sacred
and glorious cause in wmcn ine men 01 me
Revolution offered up their lives, will now
