rtuKPEcnraor me daily national k&a
I shall isRue, on the 2d day of January en
suing, the Daily National 10ka, a Political
anil Literary Newspaper.
In Politics, it will advocate the Rights of
Mau, and the Equality of Mights, anil oppose
whatever violates or tends to violate them,
whether this be Involuntary Personal Servi
tilde, rivil Despotism, Spiritual Absolutism,
Class Legislation, the Selfishness of Capital,
the Tyranny of Combination, the Oppression of
a Majority, or the Exactions of a Party.
It will hold no fellowship with the Whig
and Democratic organizations, believing that
the main issues on which they have been ar
rayed against each other are obsolete or settled, j
and that they are now chiefly used by the Sec >
tional Interest ol Slavery, to impair the love of
Liberty natural to the American mind, anil to
subjugate the American People to its rule. Dis
'claiming all connection with them, it will vet
sympathize with those of their adherents who
are honestly seeking through them to advance :
the substantial interests of the country, although j
it must believe that they have not chosen the |
lietter way.
It will lie a supporter of the Independent
Democracy, which holds that the Truths of the '
Declaration of Independence are jrraetiral; that
in their light the Constitution of the United
States is to In: interpreted; that to litem the laws
? and institutions and usages of the country
should be conformed?a Party, whose motto
is, Union, not for-the sake oT Union, but for the
sake of Freedom and Progress ; and Law, not
for the sake of Law, but ibr the Protection ol
Human Rights and Interests?the only sure
foundation of order aud concord.
In no sense will it be the organ of a Party, or
a mere Party Paper, but absolutely " free and
independent," claiming to speak by " authori
ty'' for nobody except its editor, and recognis
ing no authority in any quarter to prescribe its
course unA 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
everv-day life.
Able correspondents, at home and abroad,
have been secured, and ample provision has
been 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 lhe surface, and from its position i>e
able to keep a constant watnh upon the action
of the Federal Government in relation to all
questions at issue between Liberty and Slavery.
Xlie extensive subscription of the Weekly
Era, which, during the year altout to close, has
reached the number of twenty-eight thousand,
must make it an eligible medium for advertisers.
The Daily Era will be issued on a sheet as
large as that of the Daily National ItUelligencer,
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 FOK THAT PCRIOI) ; and thoultl
the result then warrant, the publication will be
resumed on the 1st of D?-?vniber following, by
the year.
As but bixteen days intervene between this
and the 2d of January, it is important that
subscriptions lie forwarded at once.

Com in tin ily.
Tho publishers confidently believe that the agri
culturists of this country are becoming too much
awake to the deuinnds of their own culling to he
longer satisfied with the slow monthly issues of a pa.
per professedly devoted to their interests, or to trust
alone to the trrcKyomthlo extract* in a ti\rut*r a
column," so popular just now in papers chiefly devo
ted to business, polities, or lituiature; and they look
for the united support of all the intelligent tarpt-M
of this country in their continued effort to furnish a
weekly paper of a high and reliable character, which
shall bo progressive, and at tb? same time cautious
and conservative in all its teschingr".
Essentially an Agricultural Paper.
The Agnsiihuri*t will not depart from its legiti
mate sphere to catch popular favor by lumbering up
its pages, With the silly, fictitious literature, and
licht, miscellaneous matter ot the day ; it has a ?igB
?r aim; nnd n small part only of its space will be
devoted to matters not iinmodiatelv pertaining to the
great business of Agriculture. The household as
well a? the out-door work of the farm will receive a
due share of attention. The humbugs and nostrums
atloat in the community will be tried by reliable sci
entific rules, and their worthlessnoss exposed. 1? U
the aim of the publishers to keep this paper under
the guidance of those who will make it a standard
work, which shall communicate to its readers only
that which is sate and reliable.

merits; and the truthfulness .teal, and ability,
which it brings to the support of the interests ot the
