WASHINGTON, D. C. PROSPECTUS or THE DAILY NATIONAL SKA. i shall issue, on the 2d day of January en suing, (he Daily National Era, a Political and Literary Newspaper. In Politics, it will advocate the Kights of j 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 Minority, or the Exactions of a Party. It will hold no fellowsliip 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 claiming all connection with them, it will yet sympathize with those of their adherents who are honestly staking through thein 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; thai in their light the Constitution of the United States is to be interpreted; that to them the laws and institutions anil usages of the country should be conformed?a Party, whose motto I is, Union, not for the sake of Union, but for the 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 will it be the organ of a Party, or a mere Parly Paper, but absolutely " free and independent," claiming to speak by " authori ty" lor nobody except its editor, and recognis ing no authority in any quarter to prescribe its course aud policy. In Liletjature, 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 ampie 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 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 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 Congress continue in session.) at FIVF. DOLLARS FOR THAT PERIOD; and shoJlltl the result then 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 atl panes will be invariably re quired O. BAILEY. Washington, December 15, 1853. PEOSPECTUS OP THE EIGHTH VOLUME OF THE , RATIONAL EEA. . O. RAII.EY, editor and proprietor. JOHN O. WHITTIER, corresponding editor. WASHINGTON, D. C. The National Era in a weekly newspaper, devoted to Literature and Polities. In Literature, it aims to nnito the Beautiful with the Tme, and to make both immediately subservient to the praotical purposes of every day life. In Politics, it advocates the Rights of Man, aod the Kquality of Rights, and opposes what ever violated or tends to violate them, whether this be Involuutary Personal Servitude, Civil Despotism, Spiritual Absolutism, Class Legis lation, the Sol&dmess of Capital, the Tyranny of Combination, the Oppression of a Majority, or the Reactions of Party. It holds no fellowship with the Whig and Democratic organisations, believing that the main issues on whioh they have been arrayed against each other are obsolete or settled, and that they are now ohiefly used by the Sectional Intorest of Slavery, to impair the love of Lib erty natural to the Amerioau mind, and to subjugate the American People to its rule. Dis claiming all connection with them, it yet sym pathises with those of their adheronts who are honestly seeking through them to advanoe the substantia) interests of the oountry, although it must believe that they have not choaeu the better way. It is a supporter of the Independent Democ racy, which holds that the Truths of the Dec laration 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 tl)e ooun try should be conformed?a Party, whose motto is, Union, not for the sake of Union, but for the 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 ooncord. ? In no sense is it the organ of a Party, or a mere Party Paper, but absolutely " free and independent," claiming to spoak " by author ity" for nobody except its editor, and rocogni- ; sing no authority in any quarter to prescribe its oourse and policy. The Kighth Volume of the Era will oom mence on the first of January ensning, and be enlarged by the addition of four oolumns. We have neglnoted no means that could promise to make it an agreeable companion for the House hold, and an efficient oo-adjutor to the enlight ed Politician, It has secured able correspond ents at home and abroad, and no journal in the oountry oan surpass the Era as it respeots contributors to its Literary Department. The Era publishes condensed reports of the proceeding* of Congress, explains movements in that body, the oauses of whioh do not always lie upon the surface, and from its position is enabled to keep a constant watch upon the ac tion of the Federal Government in relation to all questions at issuo between Liberty and Slavery. The only journal at tho neat of th? Federal Government, representing the Anti-Slavery Sentimont of tho Kepublio, while the Pro Sla very Sentiment is represented here by four daily papers, nearly all of them being liberally sustained by Governmental patronage, it asks the support of all who believe, in sinoerity, that the Union was formed to secure the blessings of Liberty, and not to perpetuate tho curse of Slavery. Payment in advance in invariably required. To prevent annoyance and low to ourselves and readers, to preserve their files unbroken, and to enable us to know how large an edi tion of the paper to iBsuo, all subscriptions should bo renewed before they expire.

A copious Index is weekly added, which will ba fully amplified at tho end of the year, for the bound work.

During tho past year, tho knowledga obtained from these Market Rojtorts alono has saved our readers thousands of dollars, by informing them of the host time to sell or purchase. Such a Paper is demanded by the Farming Community. The publishers confidently believe that the agri culturists of this country are becoming too much awako to tho demands of their own calling to ha longer satisfied with the slow monthly issues of a pa per professedly devoted to their interests, or to trust alone to tho irrosponsiblo extracts in a "farmer's column," so popular just now in papers chiotly devo ted to business, politics, or literature: and they look for the united support of all the intelligent farmers of tbia country in their continued effort to furnish a woekly paper ol a high and reliable character, which shall be progressive, and at the same time cautious and conservative in all its teachings. Essentially an Agricultural Paper. The Agriculturist will not depart from its legiti mate sphere to catch popular favor by lumbering up its pages, with the silly, fictitious literature, nnd light, miscellaneous matter of tho day; it ha* a high er aim; and a small part only of its apace will be devoted t? matters not immediately pertaining to the great business of Agriculture. The household as well as tho out-door work of the farm will receive a due share of attention. The humbugs and nostrums afloat in the community will be tried by reliable sci entific rules, and their worthlessnoss exposed. It is the aim of the publishers to kcop this paper under the guidance of those who will make it a standard work, which shall communicate to Its readers only that which is safe and roltable. An Independent Journal. The American Agriculturist stands upon its own merits; and the truthfulness, seal, and ability, which it brings to the support of the interest* of the' farmer. It is untrainmeled by any collateral busi ness connections whatever; nor is it the organ of any clique, or the puffing machine of any man or thing. Thoroughly independent in all polnia, its ample pa gea are studiously given alone to tho support and im provement of the great agricultural class. Editorial Department.
