TO THB NATIONAL DBMOUBACT OF TUB UNITKO OTATSH. T1IE undersigned taken thin metliod of informing the members of the greet iialioual democratic party that, haying assumed the solo proprietorship atxl editorship of the Washiimaio* I'moN, he looks te them for that countenance, encouragement, and support which hae hitherto beeh extended to thta time hotwired organ >f the democracy, and without which hie labor* would Indeed ha profitless I'ndor the new arraugomout, the typographical ap|iearauee of the fa ten has been entirely changed and improved. New awl beautiful type la now used hi it* daily, semi weekly, and weekly lxaucii, ami the lutper upon which it la printed la of an extra euperior quality. It ta my intention Ui enlarge Its else, aa the demand* or the necessities of the future may reiptlre; and It la my flxod purpose to apare neither Xiienae nor ellbrt to make It the grout central organ of the democratic party, every way worthy of their couddence and support, and a relia tile aud luithfhl medium uf commuulcaliou between the capital and the country. Having fur many years exerted my beet efforts to bring Mr. Iluchunan into the preeideuttal chair, I shall render to him and to his uliniulatraUou all the support which |iarty ties and iwreotial friend .Ui,i nan il.aliire A ureal art.la In the ell'sirs of the COUUlrV a crisis fraught will) peril and danger to the righto of the States and the per rnauency of the Union?demonstrated to the national democracy and the patriotic people of the country that hi* acknowledged talents, matured wisdom, approved statesmanship, and loug experience, were necessary to their pcaoo and safety, and they placed him, with acclamations, si the hood of the government mid the nation. He realized at imee their fttlptM and expectations by catling to his assistance u cabinet I men combining tin- rare.-d quulillr-alioiH ol tal?*nt -, vxpern-un*. and *laLesmanship?men endeared to the democratic party by all their antecedents; by the zeal which they had displayed and the services which they had rendered in some of the most honorable offices of the oountry, in nup]>oi*ling and sustaining the principles, the measures, and the policy of our party. A few weeks has sufficed to 11)1 every imtri i/tic heart in the land witli confidence and hope. Even his i>oiiticaI enemies seem to respect him. Fanaticism itself appears willing Ibr a moment to moderate its tone; and the enemies of our peace, of the ixmstitutiou, and the Union will not be able much longer to disturb the public mind by their fanatical shrieks and treasonable agitation. Largo as the circulation of the Union is, it (alls far short of those iungorous fanatical sheets that are literally spread broadcast over the Tree gtates, and which find their way in large numbers in too many of the southern States. As an antidote to the poison of these publications, L>ur friends should l?o zealous in extending the circulation of the Union. rhoflo who have been placed in offices of profit by democratic votes idiould aid in circulating democratic journals; and to postmasters in particular we confidently look ft?r active co-operation in our present t lforto to place a copy of the Daily, Weekly, or Semi-Weekly Union in the hands of every farmer, mechanic, and workiug-man in the souutry. The subscription price of the Daily Union is ten dollars per annum. Hie Tri Weekly (published semi weekly during the recess of Congress) is 11 vo dollars per annum, and contains all the reading matter which appears in the Daily. The Weekly Union is furnished to subscribers at the low rate of one dollar per annum, and is justly regarded as the cheapest political paper lu the world. It is a large and handsomely printed sheet, and coutains as mucti reading matter in the course of a twelvemonth as would inaku twelve, ordinary octavo volumes. It will be found to possoss the advantages of both a political and a family newspaper. The most important political articles of the dally issue are transferred to the weekly, and during the sitting of Congress a careful distract of the daily proceedings of the two houses is prepared exclusively for its columns. It contains, besides all important State papers of the year, election returns from every Btato in tho Union, speeches of distinguished democrats in and out of Congress, Interesting correspondence, a run summary 01 iureigu aim uuuienuo dowr, anu from week to week such information iu regard to the agricultural, manufacturing, and commercial interests of tho country oh will be Tound, it is believed, of particular value. That the Weekly Union is appreciated in the most substantial manner by democrats in every nootion of tho Union, no better evidence nood be desired than is furnished by its rapidly-increasing circulation. Withiu eighteen months twenty thousaml new names have boon added to the subscription list, mid, with tho slightest exertion 011 the part of our fi lends, its circulation can bo increased to oue hundred thousand copios before the close of elio year. Will our friends exert themselves? lif the value of tho Weekly Union to correct misrepresentations, expose falsehood, dispel error, and to bring before the people the principles ind measures of the democratic party in all their simplicity, purity, iud abiding strength, we have testimony, hh abundant as it is Hatter ng, from nearly every congressional district in the United States. 1'liis testimony is of itself the strongest argument which could bo ottered of tho necessity of promptly extending the sphere of its conceded usefulness. 1 make this appeal not from the selfish considerations of |>ecunlary gain?as tho subscription price of the Weekly Union is so low as to barely cover tho cobI of printing und the whim paper?but 'rum motives which 1 think will be understood aud appreciated by iemooraU every wherein conclusion, I desire to say a few words to subscribers, and to luoh as may hereafter become subscribers. There is now owing to the Union establishment upwards of seventy thousand dollars for back tubscrlption*. These euormous arrearages ure the result of the credit system. Willi the new volume upon which the Union lias entered liiat system Is abandoned, and hereafter the business of tho establishment will ho conducted on strictly cash principles. No subscriptions 5t tlie Daily, Heiol weekly, or Weekly issue will be received unless Mtcampantel with the advance payments. Address WIIJJAM A.
