guished political writers in the United

will be spared, to make it worthy (

Homocracy, in fulure penerations.
The publishers intend it shall occu

We shall unremittingly and with
the whole soul, devote ourselves to

j therefore, be the aim of those having
'charge of the Advocate, to enlighten

public sentiment, as far as possible.
as to the feelings, w ishes and proper
expectations ofthe Cherokees.
And while it is intended to make
the paper national in its one and
character, abstaining from nil parti
zanship in the internal politics of tje
nation, it will nevertheless be open
to full but courteous discussions of
any measures of policy op the part of
the United States, which touch upon
or efl'oct the rights and interests, not
only of the Cherokccs, but also of
their red brethren.
The Cherokee Advocate will be
printed on an imperial sheet, with
new type, both English and Chero
kee, once every week, at $3 per an
num, payable in advance. And to
those subscribers, who read only the
Cherokee language, at $'2 per annum,
Advertising wil be done on the u
