PROSPECTUS OF THE DAILY NATIOHAL ERA.
I shall issue, on the 2d day of January en
suing, the Daily National Era, a Political
and Literary Newspaper.
lit Politics, it will advocate the Rights ol
Man, aud the Equality of Rights, and oppose"
whatever violates or tends to violate them,
whether this be Involuntary Personal Servi
tude, Civil Despotism, Spiritual Absolutism,
(.'lass Legislation, the Selfishness of Capital,
the Tyrauuy of Combination, the Oppression of
a Majority, or the Exactions of a Party.
II will hold no fellowship with the Whig
aud Democratic organization*. lielieving thai
the main issues on which they have been ar
rayed against each other are obsolete or settled,
and that they are now chiefly used by the Sec
tioual Interest o( Slavery, to impair the love of
Liberty natural to (he American mind, and lo
subjugate the Americau People to its rule. Dis
claiming all connection with them, it will yet
sympathize with those of (heir adherents who
are honestly seeking through them to advance
the substantial interests of the country, although
it must believe thai they have not chosen the
better way.
It will be a supporter of the Independent
Democracy, which holds that the Truths of the
Declaration of Independence are practical; thai
in their light the Constitution of ihe United
Slates is to lie interpreted; that lo them the laws
and institutions and usages of ihe country
should be conformed?a Party, whose motto
is, Unitm, not for the sake of (Jniou. but for ihe
sake of Freedom aud Progress ; aud Imw, not
for the sake of Law, but for the Protection of
Human Rights and Interests?the only sure
foundation of order and concord.
In no sense will it be the organ of a Parly, or
a mere Party Paper, but absolutely " free and
independent," claiming lo speak by " authori
ty" for nobody except ils editor, and recognis
ing no authority in auy quarter to prescribe its
course and policy.
In Literature, it will aim to unite the Beau
tiful with the True, and to make both immedi
ately subservient to the practical purposes of
every day life.
Able correspondents, at home and abroad,
have been secured, and ample provision has
heen made for its Literary Miscellany.
It will publish condensed reports of the pro
ceedings of Congress, explain movements in
that body, the causes of which do not always
lie upon ihe surface, and from its position be
able to keep a constant watch upon the action
of the Federal Government in relation to all
questions at issue between Liberty and Slavery.
The extensive subscription of the Weekly
Era, which, during the year about to close, has
reached ihe number of twenty-eight thousand,
inust make it an eligible medium for advertisers.
The Daily Era will be issued on a sheet as
large as that of the Daily National Intelligencer,
on the 2d day of January, 1854, and daily there
after, until the 1st of September. 1854, (or long
er, should Congress continue in session,) at
five dollars for that period; and nhtmltl
the rennlt then warrant, the publication will lie
resumed on the 1st of December following, Uy
the year.
As but sixteen days intervene between this
and the 2d of January, it is important that
subscriptions be forwarded at once.
Payment in atlvanet trill be invariably re
