In soliciting the patronage of the public for
the proposed publication, it is due to that pub.
lie to give an outline of the views and princi
plas by which we shall be governed, and this
duty we proceed to discharge. While we
shall endeavor to make our sheet the channel
tor communicating to our readers, the intelli
gence usually given in a public journal, its
character will be essentially political; and ac
cording to the original sense of the term, as
applicable to this government; strictly demo
cratic. We have lived sufficiently long, how.
ever, to learn, that names are but too often
illusory and deceptive, and that the arts 01
impostors are seldom put in practice, except
under cover of some specions and I mpostn
appellation. We shall not therefore rest our
claims upon a name, but invite ine severest
seTutmy of onr readers to the fidelity wita
which our professions as aa editor are main
tained and practised.
As the only legitimate object of a rcpubli
enn or democratic government is the equal
protection of the rights, and promotion of the
welfare and happiness of all ; it follows as an
irresistable conclusion, that that administra
tion, or system of measures which is most
conducive to these ends, is best entitled to ths
appellation of democratic- And as the only
true test, of the merit of measures or adminis
trations, is to be found in the effects produced
on the interests and moral character of soci
ety, it is by this standard alone that we shall
aim to be governed in passing judgment upon
We believe the doctrines or rather the dog
mas of party as inculcated by the leaders o

most insiduou enemy to the interests and in
stitutionsnf the country that it demands of
ts votaries passive obedience to the order of
leaders, regardless of the claims of patriotism,

or shall therefore be, to expose and counteract
the dangerous and enslaving tendency of this
doctrine, and enforce as far as in our power
lies the higher obligations of duty to ourselves
and to our country, believing that where the
requirements of party are thus urged by its
leaders, the proceeding carries on its face the
most conclusive evidence, that it is thir own
nterests and not those of the country they are
laboring to promote.
We beiieve that the wealth, happiness and
independence of our country, depend on the
encouragement and protection of the labor and
industry of our own citizens, and the cultiva

TST ALUABLE SCflOOL BOOKS, Two of
V the bes, and most useful and necessary
SCHOOL BOOKS, are the following, which
have received the sanction of the best judges
in the State of N. York, and have been exten
sively introduced into the common schools
and Academies ol that State. They have like
wise been approved by the Superintendent of
Pablic Instruction of Michigan, (Dr. Corn

common schools of this State, viz ;
THE AMERICAN CLASS READER,
containing a series of lessions in reading with
introductory exercises in articulation, inflec
tion, emphasis, and the other essential ele.
ments of correct ane natural elocution ; de
siened for academies and common schools.
By Georgb Wilso.v, formerly Principal of the
Canandaigua Academy, and the principal o
the Livingston county high school.
The design of tho American class reader
is to teach children how to read. It is not sum.
cier.t for this purpose, that a book be instruc
tive and entertaining, and the selections chaste
and classical in point of diction ; it should
be also properly adapted to exercise the read
er in all the varied tones, inflections, and oth
er requisites, that belong to correct natural
elocution. The Rev. J. Spencer, of Brook,
lin, N. Y. an experienced Teacher savs :
"I have very can-fullj examined the American
Class Reader, by George Willson, and have
no hesitation in expressing my opinion of its
excellence. I consider it the best work, for
the purpose which it is designed, that I have
ever seen, and I cannot but desire its immedi
ate adoption in our Academies and schools.'
Similar recommendations from hundreds of
others, have been received.
A PRACTICAL AND THEORETICAL
SYSTEM OF ARITHMETIC, containing
several new methods cf operation, and a new
system of Proportion ; with Teoretical expla
