PROSPECTUS or THE DAILY NATIONAL ERA.
I shall issue, on the 2(1 day of January en
suing, the Daily National Era, a Political
and Literary Newspaper.
In Politics, it will advocate the Rights of
Man, and the Equality of Rights, and oppose
whatever violates or tends to violate theui,
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 Party.
It will hold no fellowship with the Whig
and Democratic organization, believing 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
tional Interest oi 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
sympathize with those of their adherents who
are honestly seeking through them to advance
the substantial interests of the country, although
it must believe that they have not chosen the
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 thein the laws
and institutions and usages of the country
should be conformed?a Party, whose mottu
is, Union, not for the sake of Union, but for the
sake of Freedom ahd 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 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
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 jyational 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
rive dollars roK that rERioD; and should
the remit then warrant, the publication will be
resumed on the 1st of December following, by
As but sixteen days intervene between this
and the 2d of January, it is important that
subscriptions he forwarded at once.
Payment in cuhmncs will be invariably re

(THE WEAL ANI) WOE OP SOCIAL LIFE.
One Volume 12mo, Si,
THE object of this talo is to exhibit in different
phages, in high life and low life, tbo accursed
effects of intemperate drinking, tho bane of social
life, the curse of civilized man. The characters are
well and sharply drawn, and tho various sconce are
described with much spirit and graphic effect. * *
* We are disposed to rogard tho book as tho host
of its kind thut has yet appearod.?Huston Traveller.
It is not often that we read a story of any kind,
but wo have broken our practice, and have read this
book not only with pleasure, but with a gratification
which but very few novels havo ever afforded us. It
is a quiet and simple, but still striking and effoctive
picture of American social life.?Chicago Tribune.
Written with marked ability.?Zarmsville Courier
A thrilling picture of the effects of that infernal
bane of social life, intemporance.?Richmond Pal
The style is attractive and fascinating ; thero is a
freshness and originality about it, that is vory pleas
ing. * * * One of its chief merits is tho excel
lence of its conversations.?Enquirer.
Has so many thrilling pas*nges and well-drawn
characters, that -ad it with absorbed attention.
It oannot fail to ve for Mrs. Collins an enviable
popularity. She -woa us with her to the drunkard's
homo, and tolls ol the hunger and the fear, tho toil
and the suffering, that are there. She paints, with
a woman's delicate skill, the meek pationoe, the
long-abased, but unchanging lot o of the drunkard's
wife, touches the deepest chords of the heart, and
makes them vibrate with pity and with indignation.
Though Mrs. Collins has already hosts of admi
rers ot her literary productions, this work, we pre
dict, will increase that number ten-fold, and give
her a reputation worthy of her high talents.? New
The style is easy, natural, beautiful, chaste, and
at times very eloquent. We would commend it es
pecially to young ladies, that they may see to what
dangers they are exposed, in forming alliances with
thefashionable in high life.?Ohio Organ.
A deeply interesting and powerful work. It vivid
ly portrays some of the terrific exploits of strong
drink in both high and low life. Nor are such scenos
as it depicts either imaginary or few. Lot this hook
circulate. It has a beneficent aim, and is the vehicle
of admirably old and most salutary lessons.?Prtt
* * * Has sketched it in its daintiest form of
fascination, as woll as in its gtim and dismal aspect
of open degradation. Raroly has a woman ventured
to hold the torch to such a dark reeesa of human
We know of no passage, anywhere, more uniquely
beautiful, more intensely absorbing, more overpow
ering in the pathetic, than the thirty-fourth chapter.
It is indeed a gem. We doubt whether the celebra
ted chapter devoted to the death of Eva, io Uncle
Tom's Cabin, is superior. * * ? It is certainly
the most powerful temperance tale that we have ever
perused.?Journal ana Messenger.
Beautifully written * * * A work of great
strength and power.?Ooipel Herald.
mm* The incidents dramatic, and the inter
est intense to the end.?Ohio Stutoman.
Wields an easy pen, and sketches men auJ man
ners to the life.? Presbyterian Herald.
Graphic, truthful, chaste, and deeply affecting, the
story winds itself into our footings, and we become
absorbed in the plot, as if we beheld before our own
?yes the realities of the author's delineations.? Out*

Suck a Paper is demanded by the Farming
The publishers confidently believe that the agri
culturists of this country are becoming too much
awake to the demands of their own calling to be
longer satisfied jwith the slow monthly issues of a pa
per professedly do voted to their interests, or to trust
alone to the irresponsible extracts in a " farmer's
column," so popular just now iu papers chiefly devo
ted to business, politics, or literature; and they look
for tho unitod support of all the intelligent farmers
of this country in their continued effort to furnish a
weekly papor of a high and reliable character, which
shall he progressive, and at the same time cautious
; and conservative in all its teachings. ?
Essentially an Agricultural Paper.
The AsrrrnUturist will not depart from its legiti
' mate sphere to catch popular favor by lumbering up
its |>agt's, with the silly, fictitious literature, and
light, miscellaneous matter of the day ; it has a high
er aiin; and a small part only of its space will be
devoted to matters not iraraodiatelv pertaining tot he
great business of Agriculture. The household us
well as the out-door work of the farm will rcoeive a
due share of attention. The humbugs and nostrums
afloat in the community will bo tried hy reliable sci
entific rules, and their wnrthlessnoss ox posed. It if
, the aim of the publishers to keep this paper under
the guidanoe of those who will make it a standard
work, which shall communicate to its readers only
that which is safe and reliable.
