A liberal discouut for long advertisements, and to
those who advertise for a longer time.
I shall issue, on the 2d day of January en
suing, the Daily National Era, a Political
and Literary Newspaper.
In Politira, it will {idvorate the Rights of
Man, and the Equality of Rights, and oppose
whatever violates or tends to violate them,
whether this be Involuntary Personal Servi
tude, Civil Despotism, Spiritual Absolutism,
Class Legislation, the Selfishness of Capital,
the Tyranny of Combination, the Oppression of
a Majority, or the Exactions of a Parly.
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,
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, and to
subjugate the American People to its rule. Dis- I
claiming all connection with them, it will yet
sympathize with those of their adherents who j
are honestly seeking through them to advance
the substantial interests of the country, although
it must believe that 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; that
in their light the Constitution of the United
States is to be interpreted; that to them the laws
and institutions and usages of the country
should be conformed?a Party, whose motto
is, Union, not for the sake of Union, but for the
sake of Freedom and Progress; and Jaiw, not
for the sake of Law, but Tor 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 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 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 I
every-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 the surface, and from its position r*
able to keep a constant watch upon the action
of tbe 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 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 Intelligencer,
on the 2d day of January, 1854, and daily there
after, until the 1st of September, 1854, (or long
er, should Cougress continue in session,) at
five dollars roR that period; and thmtld
the result Hum warrant, the publication will be
resumed on the 1st of December following, by
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 advanc* mill be invariably re
quired G. BAILEY.

o. bailey, suitor and proprietor.
The National Era in a weekly newspaper,
devoted to Literature and Politics.
In Literature, it sims to unite the Beautiful
with the True, and to make both immediately
subservient to the practical purposes of every
day life.
In Politic*, it advocates the Rights of Man,
and thv Kquality of Rights, and opposes what
ever violates or tends to violate them, whether
this be Involuntary Personal Servitude, Civil
Despotism, Spiritual Absolutism, Class Legis
lation, the Selfishness of Capital, the Tyranny
of Combination, the Oppression of a Majority,
or the Gxaotions of Party.
It holds no fellowship with the Whig and
Democratic organizations, believing that the
main issues on whioh they have been arrayed
against each other are obsolete or settled, and
that they am now chiefly used by the Sectional
Interest, of Slavory, to impair the lovo of Lib
erty natural to the American mind, and to
subjugate the American People to its rule. Dis
claiming all connection with them, it yet sym
pathises with those of their adherents who are
honestly seeking through them to advanoo the
substantial interest* of the country, although
it must believe that they havo not ohosen the
better way.
It is a supporter of tho Independent Democ
racy, which holds that the Truths of the Dec
laration of Independenoo are practical, that in
their light the Constitution of the United
States is to be interpreted, that to them the
laws and institutions and usages of tho ooun
try should be conformed?a Party, whose
motto is, Union, not for the sake of Union,
but for tho sake of Freedom and Progress;
and Law, -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 is it tho organ of a Party, or a
mero Party Paper, but absolutely "free and
independent," claiming to speak " by author
ity'' for nobody excopt its editor, and reoogni
sing no authority in any quarter to prescribe its
oourse and polioy.
The Eighth Volume of the Era will com.
menoe on the first of January ensuing, and be
enlarged by the addition of four columns. We
have neglected no means that could promise to
make it an agreeable companion for the House
hold, and an efficient oo-adjutor to the cnlight
ad Politician. It has securod able correspond- |
ents at homo and abroad, and no journal in
the country can surpass the Era as it respect*
contributors to its Literary Department.
The Era publisher condensed reports of the
proceedings of Congress, explains movements
in that body, the causes of which do not always
lie upon the surface, and from its position is
enabled to keep a oonstant watch upon the ac
tion of the Federal Government in relation
to nil questions at issue between Liberty and
The only jounml ut the neat, of the Federal
Government, representing the Anti-Slavery
Sentiment of the Republic, while the Pro Sla

sustained by Governmental patronage, it aaks

the Union was for mod to secure the blessings
of Liberty, and not to perpetuate tho curse of

Suck a Paper is demanded by the Farming
Tho publishers confidently believo that the pgri
culturists of this country are becoming too much
awake to the demands of their own f alling to be
longer satisfied with the slow monthly isxuos of a pa
per professedly devoted to their interests, or to truat
alone to tho irresponsible extracts In a "farmers
column," so popular just now in pa]*rs chiefly devo
ted to business, polities, or literature; and they look
for the united support of all the intelligent farmers
of this conntry in their continued effort to furnish a
woekly paper of a high and reliable character, which
shall be progressive, nnd at the saino time cautious
and conservative in all its teachings.
Essentially an Agricultural Paper.
The Agrtfidtnriwt will not depart from its legiti
mate sphere to catch popular favor by lumbering up
ita pages, with the silly, fictitious literature, and
light, miscellaneous matterot the day; it baa a high
er aim; and a small part only of its space will l>e
devoted to matters not immediately pertaining to the
great business of Agriculture. The household aa
well as the out-door work of the farm will receive a
due share of attention. The humbugs and nost rums
afloat in the community will be tried by reliable sci
entific rales, and their worthlessness exposed. It ii
the aim of the publishers to keep this paper under
the guidance of those who will make it a standard
work, whieh shall communicate to its reader? only
that which ia safe and reliable.
An Independent Journal
The 4isi ii i>si Agrirnituriu stands upon its own
merits; nnd the truthfulness, moal, and ability,
whioh it brings to the support of the interests of tho
farmer It is untramtneled by any collateral busi
ness connections whatever. nor ia it the organ of any
clique, or the puffing machine of any man or thing.
Thoroughly independent in all points, its ample pa
ges are studiously given alono to the support and im
provement of the great agricultural class.
