WASHINGTON, 1). C. PROSPECTUS OP IBB DAILY NATIONAL SUA. I shall issue, on the 2d day of January en suing, the Daii.v National. Era, a Political and Literary Newspaper. In Politic,i, it will advocate the Rights ot 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 Maiority , 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, ; and that they are now chiefly used by the Sec- j tional Interest of Slavery, to impair the love of : Liberty natural to the American mind, ami lo 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 seeking through them to advance the substantial interests of the country, although it must believe ihat 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 lo 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 j sake of Freedom and Progress ; and Imw, not for the sake of Law. but for the Prtftection 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 j 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. - j In Literature, it will aim to unite the Beau- j tiful with the True, and to make both immedi- | ately subservient to the practical purposes of etfery-day life. Able correspondents, at home and abroad, have been secured, and ample provision has been made for its Literary Miscellany. It will publisit]rrpndensed reports of the pro ceedings of Cc^.' ?es, explain movements in that body, the tViSes of which do not always j lie upon the surface, and from its position In- i able to keep a constant watch upon the action j of the Federal Government in relation to all ; questions at issue between Liberty and Slavery. The extensive subscription of the Weekly I Era, which, during the year about to close, has j reached tnenumber of twenty-eight thousand, ' must make it an eligible medium for advertisers. The Daily Era will be issued on a sheet a? large as that of the Daily National Intelligencer, on the 2d day of January, 1854, and daily there- j after, until the 1st of September, 1854, (or long j er, should Congress continue in session,) at FIVE DOLLARS FOR THAT PERIOD; and should 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 i.s important that subscriptions be forwarded at once. Payment in advance trill be invariably re quired G. BAILEY. Washington, December 15, 1853. PROSPECT^ OP THE EIGHTH VOLUME OP THE NATIONAL ERA. - O. BAILET, EDITOR AND PROPRIETOR. JOHN O. WHITTIER, CORRESPONDINO EDITOR. WASHINGTON, D. C. The National Era is a weekly newspaper, devoted to Literature and Politic*. In Literature, it nirns to unite the Beautiful with the True, and to tnako both immediately subservient to the practical purposes of every day life. In Politics, it advocates the Right* of Man, and the Equality of Righto, and opposes what ever violate*) or tends to violate them, whether this bo Involuntary Personal Servitude, Civil Despotism, Spiritual Abs?4utism, Clans Legis * lation, the Selfish new* of Capital, the Tyranny of Combination, the Oppression of a Majority, or the Exactions of Party. It holds no fellowship with the Whig and Democratic organizations, believing that the main issues on which they have been arrayed against each other are obsolete or settled, and that they are now chiefly nsed by the Sectional Interost of Slavery, to impair tbo love of Lib erty natural to the American mind, and to subjugate the American People to its rule. Dis ulaiming all connection with them, it yet sym pathises with those of thoir adherents who are honestly seeking through thorn to advance the substantial interests of the country, although it must tielieve that they have not chosen 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 the coun try should be conformed?a Party, whoso motto is, Union, not for the sake of Union, but for the sake of Freedom and Progress; and Lata, not for the sake of Law, bat for the Protection of Human Rights and Interests? the only sure foundation of order and concord. In no senso is it the organ of a Party, or a mere Party Paper, but absolutely " free and independent/' claiming to speak " by author ity '' for nobody exoept its editor, and recogni sing no authority in any quarter to prescribe its oourae and policy. The Eighth Volume of the Era will com mence on the fir.nt of January ensuing, and be enlargod 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 co-adjutor to the enlight ed Politician. It has secured able correspond ents at home and abroad, and no journal in the country can surpass the Era as it respects contributors to its Literary Department. The Era publishes oondensod reports of the proceedings of Congress, explains movements in that body, the causes of whioh do not always lie upon the surface, and from its position is enabled to keep a constant, watch upon the ao tion of the Federal Government in relation bo all questions at iw.ua between Liberty and | Slavery. The only journal at the scut oi the Federal , Gorerameut, representing the Anti-Slavery i Sentiment of tho Republic, while the Pro 81a- j very Sentiment in represented hore by four | daily papers, nearly all of thorn being liberally | sustained by (iovernmeutal patronage, it asks the support of all who believe, in sincerity, that the Union was formed to seouro the blowings of Liberty, and not to perpetuate the corse of Slavery. Payment in advance id invariably required.

Has so many thrilling passages and well-drawn characters, that yon read it with absorbed attention. It cannot fail to achieve for Mrs. Collins an enviablo popularity. She takes us with her to tho drunkard's home, and tells of tho hunger and the fear, the toil and the suffering, that aro there. She paints, with a woman's delicato skill, tho meok patience, the long-abused, but uuuhanging love of the drunkard's wife, touches the deepest chords of tho heart, and makes them vibrate with pity and with indignation.
