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
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

the above title, and devoted to the inculcation
of correct Republican Whig semimpnts. But,
at the same lime, while the WmuM will
maintain a strict, firm and unwavering ad her

er matter shall not be lost sight of. 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

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

all. Confiding, then, in a generous and cor

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

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.
The first number of the Whig will be iss
ued by the iOth of November or a3 soon asprac
Sept. 20th, 1S44.
The Whig will be published every Satur
day, on an Imperial sheet at two dollars per
annum payable in advance. When payment
is not mad** in advance, two dollars and fifty

if payment be delayed until Ihe expiration of
