per copy.

the question ol Slavery, and the udvocacy of lite main
principles of the Liberty party. Due attention is given to ;
social and political questions ol general importance; nor arc !
the interests of a pure literature overlooked.
It aims to preserve a faithful record of important events;
of Inventions or discoveries aflVctiiig the progress of socle- '
ty ; of public documents of permaiiept value; und, during'
the sessions of Congress, it will convey n correct idea not
only of its action, but of its sulrit and policy. The debates
on the exciting subjects of Slavery und the Mexican war,
expected to arise in the next Congress, will occupy s large
share of its columns.

'olitical abolition existed at die adoption of die Federal ContUiitioii.
The ambitioua men of that day saw in that question
, me insof arraying the North against the South,and ofsecurug
to northern men a political control ol the whole country
l in now demonstrable that the ordinances of '87 and the Missuri
compromise were parts of a system having this object
n view. The popularity of Gen. Washington, the folly of
he Elder Adarns, the election of Mr. JeflVrsou, and the oranimation
oI parties in reference to that election, impeded
Is progress, but it was kept alive, aud was ever sctive in its
tlbrt to urray die North agaiust die South.
To trace die progress o( such intrigues undto unmask the
esigns of ambitious men, is the proper duty of the press;
ut Virginia enfeebled by the mTairol Southampton, and berayed
by interested political combinations gravely debated
lie question ot Emancipation, and that measure wus defeat
d in the House of Delegates by one or two votes only ; Gen.
ackson was then in power; Mr. Van Buren was his candilale
for the succession, aud Mr. llitchle was his partisan
Sditor. It was Mr. Vail llurrn's interest to denounce the

the South against the North, and dissolve the Union and

The veteran editor of that paper, brought to Washington

mutheru in its feelings and principles, could see nothing in

his city of a paper devoted to that cause, richly endowed,
ibly couducted, aud extensively circulated?nothing in tlie
iVilmot proviso or its adoptiuu by the House of Represeustives?
nothing in the proceedings of tiie Legislatures ol
lie non-ulaveholdiug States, pledging the people of those
Hates to its support, which, in Ins opinion, should arouse

vould in no event support any cuudidutc for the Presidenv
who approved of the Wiimot proviso, that Mr. Buchanan
vrote his fetter in favor of exteuding the Missouri compronise
line; and now it is so manifest that that measure, so
[?rogatory to the rights, interests, and character of the
ninth, is un expedient to seduce the south into the support

paper, published at the Heat of Government, and commanding

that he lias claims upon the confidence and support

lays, and the earnings of an active life, to tiieir cause ; not
tecause he was the partisan of the south, or of the pecuiar
institutions of that section ; hut because he desired to
trengthen and perpetuate the Union, and because he knew
hut the purpose oi leading Abolitionists was, to so organze
public opinion in the nuu-slnvthoUling States, as to edible
anti-slavery to control the offices and putronugo of the
federal Government.

WE issue this Prospectus to apprise the public of rcuewed
preparations on our purt to publish the Conohessional
Gi.obb and Ai'pbndix for the approaching st salon,
and to invite subscriptions. The two Houses having contracted
with us tor the work, on such terms us enables us
note to make complete reports, to multiply and issue the numbers
in quicker succession than heretofore, and wiliiout in:reusing
the price to subscribers, we hope to make a good
return tor the liberality and high official sanction thus be
ttowed on the publication. We shall inriease itie volun.u
it least one-third beyond the ordinary bulk, *ud eudeavt.*
to add to its usefulness by extending Mill lurther its Jaige
This Inst is not the least important point in the view oi
Congress. Faithful and durable reports of the debutes of the
body ure of value iu proportion to the exttnt of their circulation
among the people. It is in this way that C'ongrt ss is
brought into the presence of its remote constituents: ihut it
obtains easy access and holds communication with them
from day to duy, and renders the Government really repres?
marks ol approbation and confidence, in the liberal means
md permanent contract voted to continue the work, we eMail
not be found wanting in the impartiality uud industry necessary
to the due fulfilment of the engagement on our part.
The next session will task to the utmost the best tftbits of
those connected with the undertaking. It will be distinguished
by diM-ufrsiouB of extraordinary Interest and results
r?l abiding concern. The War, its origin, and conduct by of.
th ere in the cabinet and in the tit-Id, will furnish objects of
profound inquiry and consideratiou. The terms ol peace,
the disposition to be made of conquests, the consequences to
1)0 drawn from all that has been done, asuffecting parties in
this country, and especially us bearing on the approaching
Presidential election, will open up novel and powerfully oprating
discussions, rendering the councils at Washington
[luring the next year us pregnant of good or evil to this continent
as those of Home were to the old world lit the days ot
her early euergy. Such a Held lor deliberation and action
was never presented to any previous Congress. All that has
transpired or may hereafter transpire before the close of the
approaching session of Congress, in New Mexico, California,
In the capital ol Mexico end the provinces still depmdtnt on
it, will come under the consideration of the next Congftf*.
Its debates will contain the history of the war. and its action
determine its results. Whether they be decided by arms or
diplomacy. And whatever is developed concerning this
vast and interesting matter on the floor of Congress or in the
Executive messages, will he found recorded in the Congressional
Globe and Appendix.
The Congressional Globe is made up of the daily proceedings
of the two Houses of Congress, and printed on supertin"
double royal paper, with small type, (brevier and iioupnreil,)

about the same number of pages during a session.
During tire first month or six weeks of a session, there is
rarely more business done than will make two numbers a
week?one of the Congressional Globe and oue of the Appendix;
but during the r< inaiuder of the session, there is
usually sufficient matter for two or three untnbirs of each
and every week. The next session will be unusually intereating

and Appendix together will make near ;J,UU0 Urge quarto
