The Establishment of the American Watchman, hither
to owned and conducted by the subscriber, luis been trans
ferred and conveyed to Mr. James Witstw, to whom all
applications relating to the future concerns of the Es'ab

THE Subscriber having purchased the establishment
() ' tire AMERICAN WATCHMAN', has barely time iu
the present number, to present himself respectfully before
his old friends the patrons of this paper, and tire public,
from whom he solicits that share of tavor which lie will
endeavor to deserve.
It is deemed superfluous at this time, when the aim and
design of Periodical Publications, and especially of News
papers, arc so well understood, to enlarge upon their util
ity: suffice it therefore to say that the columns of the
American Watchman will embrace every topic common
or proper fur a Public Journal, viz. Articles on Agricul
ture; Arts and Sciences; Manufactures; Morals; and His
torical, Political, and Religious Intelligence, Foreign and
Dome.,tic, &c.
An abstract of the proceedings of the Congress of the
U. S and of the Speeches of the Governors of the several
States, to the Legislatures thereof, shall he recorded; to
gether with so much of the legislative proceedings of
each State, as may be generally interesting.
The Politics of the Watchman will he purely American,
and in strict accordance with the Democratical Republican
institutions of our country. "Truth is a Victor without vi
olence:'' and so long as decency and candor guide the pen,
tile columns of the Watchman shall be always free and o
pen for the fair investigation of the pretensions of candi
dates for public offices; of public men and public mea
sures—unmingled with the wormwood and the gall that
have heretofore characterized, at the same time that they
have disgraced too many of the presses of our country:—
but: the truth, unvarnished, shall at all times he fearlessly
told, offend-whom it may; —and while the meed of applause
shall be justly conferred upon the faithful servant of the
people, the lash of censure will not be withheld from the
traitorous delinquent or public defaulter.
The fair daughters of Columbia, t hough last mentioned,
not least in our estimation, shall not be passed by unre
garded. A portion of our columns shall occasionally be
devoted to their amusement and instruction.
Jan. 1822.
The American Watchman will be published every Tues
day and Friday, on a sheet of super royal paper, and de
livered to subscribers in town, and forwarded by tho
first mails to distant subscribers; or by any other mode of
conveyance they may direct.
The price will be four dollars a year, if paid in advance
by distant subscribers, and six months in advance by those
in town; and five dollars per annum to those who do not
pay in advance, as above.
Communications and essays from correspondents will he
gladly received, and we hope they will enrich the col
umns of this paper with their lucubrations. They may
confidently rely on the most inviolable secrecy with re
gard to their productions, and the utmost candor in deci
ding on their merits.
Our friends who hold subscription papers for the North
American and Delaware Advertiser, are requested to send

who will he considered as subscribers to this paper. They
will please at the same time to state the place of resi
dence of each subscriber, and the Post Olfiiceto which his

personal application respectfully made to solicit his patron

selves entitled to such attention, will he good and candid

commencement of every establishment of this kind; in
short, to any cause but intentional neglect.

Dr. Chervin of Paris is now on a visit to this

our medical men on the origin and nature of the
Yellow Fever. He has, we understand, been prose

own expense, and has visited for this purpose, du
ring that period, almost every place within the tro
pics, and every city in the United States. It gives
Us great pleasure to learn that every where in our
country, with one solitary exceptin, he has been trea
ted with kindness and attention by the physicians,
and that he has collected, by this means, a mass of
the most interesting and important information,
which he intends to give to the world on His return
to Paris It is to be hoped that the information
which he will give to the world may lessen the em
barrasments to which our commerce is frequently
subjected in Europe, and establish more correct and
rational views of the nature and origin of this dis
tressing pestilence Every one must admire the
zeal and perseverance of Dr. Chervin, and we
sincerely hope that he will realize the most substan
tial reward from the publication of his work.
