DEMOCRACY.—" The republican creeed is clear and simple. It is the retention of as much individual liberty as is consistent with the security of each, and the general harmony. It respects the person, the rights, tfie proper ly, oay. the very prejudices, of all. It legis lates not for individuals or classes, but for the whole: It recognize? no political distinction or superiority. It leaves to men the control d'their own actions and pursuits, in as far as they do not encroach upon the rights (if oth ers. Tiiu tastes, the habits, the fashions of the citizens, it does not interfere with, much less attempt to regr.late or enforce. It pPr. mils society to arrange itself hy its own Vn|- iiitions, and leaves the association of its mem bers to tfieir respective elective affinities. It recognizes no exclusive privileges, no selfish monopolies but embraces all with indiscrim inate protection. The democratic creed may bo summrd up in this brief formula As lit t'e fnwrnmerit ::s possible that little eunna lutting from and contr1 led by the Penplt nnd «nifr»rn in ils application to all."-— De:n.

Iowa, a weekly newspaper, to be known by the above title, and devoted to the inculcation of correct Republican Whig semimpnts.

Educa tion, Litera»ure. General Intelligence, and in a word whatever is calculated to promote so cial or individual improvement and happiness, will be welcomed to its columns. Almost invariably, it has been the custom of newspaper publishers at the onset of their career, to make great professions and vaunting promises of what they intend to do, and the cause is seldom known where they have ad hered to thein one half the extent promised.— It may be deemed unnecessary to make any promises, but conscious of what a newspaper ought to be, it shall bn the study of the pro prietor to render the WHIG equal, at least, to any intelligencer in the embryo State. It is not deemed necessary to add a word on the importance of the Whigs sustaining a press at this place, it must be palpably obvious to all. Confiding, then, in a generous and cor dial support, the undersigned willingly risks the undertaking, fraught as it is, with impor tant consequences. In consideration of the great expense which attends a printing establishment in this part of the country and to obviate the difficulty of collecting, subscribers are required after lhe receipt of the 6th number, to pay the amount of their subscriptions and to enable the pat rons of the paper lo do this with more conve nience. all Postmasters &re authorized and re quested to act as agents, who after deducting a reasonable commission, will forward the funds by them collehted to the undersigned.
