I shall issue, on tho 2d day of January en duing, the Daily National Kra, a Political and Literary Newspaper. In Politic*, it will advocate the Rights of Man, and the Equality of Right*, and oppose whatever violate* or tendn to violate them, whether thin he Involuntary Personal Servi tude, Civil Despotism, Spiritual Absolutism, Claws Legislation, the Solfishness of Capital, the Tyranny of Combination, the Oppression of ? a Majority, or the Ki-iotion* of a Party. It will hold no fellowship with tho Whig and Democratic organization*, believing that tho main iiwno* on which they have boen ar rayod against each other are obsolete or settled, and that they are now chiofly used by the Sec tional Interest of Slavery, to impair tho love of Liberty natural to the American mind, and to subingate tho American People to its rule. Dis claiming all oonnoction with them, it will yot ' sympathise 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 bettor way. It will bo a supporter of tho Independent Democracy, which holds that tho Truth* ol the Declaration of Independence aro practical; that in their light tho Constitution of the United Statoa is to l?e interpretedthat to them the laws and institutions and usages of the oountry should j>e conformed?a Party, whtmo motto is, Uniofi. not for the sake of Union, but for the sake of Freedom and Program; and Law, not for the sake of I.aw, but lor the protection of Human Righto and Interests?the only Buro foundation of order and oonoord.

Able correspondents, at home and abroad, have been sooured, 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 cautes of which do not always lie upon the surface, and from ita position be able to koep a constant watch npon the aotion 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 bo 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 lat of September, 1854, (or long er, should Congress continue in session,) at KIVK DOLLARS FOR THAT PKRIOD; and should Ihe result then warrant, the publicatioo will be resumed on the lat of September following, by the year. Aa but sixteon days intervene between this and the 2d of January, it ia important that subscriptions be forwarded at once. Payment in advance will be invariably re quired. G. BAILfJY. Washington, December 15, 1853. INDEPENDENT DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM. ADOPTED AT PITTSBURGH, AUGUST 12,1852. Having assembled in National Conven tion as the delegates of the Free Democra cy of the United States, united J>y a com mon resolve to maintain right against wrongs, and freedom against slavery; con fiding in the intelligence, patriotism, and the discriminating justice of the American people; putting our trust in God for the triumph of our cause, and invoking his guidance in our endeavors to advance it, we now submit to the candid judgment of all men the following declaration of prin ciples and measures: I. That Governments, deriving their just powers from the consent of the. governed, are instituted among men to secure to all, those inalienable rights' of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, witji which they were endowed by their Creator, and of which none can be deprived by valid legis lation, except for crime. II. That the true mission of American Democracy is to maintain the liberties of the people, the sovereignty of the States, and the perpetuity of the Union, by the impartial application to public affairs, with out sectional discriminations, of the fun damental principles of equal rights, strict justice, and economical administration. III. That the Federal Government is one of limited powers, derived solely from the Constitution ; and the grants of power therein ought to be strictly construed by all the departments and agents of the Gov ernment, and it is inexpedient and dan gerous to exercise doubtful constitutional powers. IV. That the Constitution of the United States, ordained to form a more perfect union; to establish justice, and secure the blessings of liberty, expressly denies to the General Government all power to de prive any person of life, liberty, or prop erty, without due process of law; and, therefore, the Government, having no more I power to make a slave than to make a king, and no more power.to establish sla very than to establish monarchy, should at once proceed to 'relieve itself from all re sponsibility for the existence of slavery wherever it possesses constitutional power to legislate for its extinction. V. That, to the persevering and impor tunate demands of the Slave Power for more slave States, new slave Territories, and the nationalization of Slavery, our dis tinct and final answer is?no more slave States, no slave Territory, no nationalized Slavery, and no national legislation for the extradition of slaves. VI. That Slavery is a sin against God and a crime against man, which no human enactment nor usage can make right; and that Christianity, humanity, and patriotism, alike demand its abolition. VII. That the fugitive Slave Act of 18.50 is repugnant to the Constitution, to the principles of the common law, to the spirit of Christianity, arid to the senti ments of Ihe civilized world. We there lore deny its binding force upon the American People, and demand its imme diate and total repeal. VIII. That the doctrine that any human law is a finality, ami not subject to modi fication or repeal, is not in accordance with the creed of the founders of our Gov ernment, ami is dangerous to the liberties of the people. IX. That the acts of^Congress known as the Compromise Measures of 1850, by making the admission of a sovereign State contingent upon the adoption of other measures demanded by the special inter est of Slavery; by their omission to guar anty freedom in free Territories ; by their attempt to impose unconstitutional limit' ations on the power of Congress and the people to admit new States ; by their pro visions for the assumption of five millions of the State debt of Texas, and for the payment of five millions more, ami the cession of a large territory to the same State iHuler menace, as an inducement to the relinquishment of a groundless claim, and by their invasion of the sovereignly of the Mates and the liberties of the peo ple, through the enactment of an unjust, oppressive, and unconstitutional Fugitive Slave Law, are proved to be inconsistent with all the principles ami maxims of De mocracy, and wholly inadequate to the ' settlement of the questions of which they are claimed to he an adjustment. X. Thai no permanent settlement of the Slavery question can be looked for, except in the practical recognition ol the truth that Slavery is sectional, and Free dom national; by the total separation ol the General Government from Slavery, and the exercise of its legitimate and consti tutional influence on the side of Freedom; and by Icaviug to the States the whole bubjecl of Slavery and the extradition ol fugitives from service. XI. That all men have a natural right to a portion of the soil; and that, as the use of the soil is indispensable to life, the right of all men to the soil is as sacred as their right to life itself. XII. That the public lands of the Uni ted States belong to the people, and should not be sold to individuals uor granted to coi/porations, but should be held as a sa cred trust for the benefit of the people, and should be granted in limited quanti ties, free of cost, to landless settlers. XIII. That a due regard for the Federal Constitution, and sound administrative policy, demand that the funds of the Gen eral Government be kept separtite from banking institutions; that inland and ocean postage should be reduced to the lowest possible point; that no more reve nue should be raided than is required to defray the strictly necessary expenses of the public service, and to pay off the pub lic debt; and that the power and patron* age of the Government should be dimin ished by the abolition of all unnecessary offices, salaries, and privileges, and by the election by the people of all civil officers iu the service of the United States, so far as may be consistent with the prompt ami efficient transaction of the public business. XIV. That river and harbor improve ments, when necessary to the safety and convenience of commerce with foreign nations or among the several Slates, are objects of national concern, and it is the duty *)f Congress, iu the - exercise of its constitutional powers, to provide for the same. % XV. That emigrants and exiles from the" Old World should find a cordial wel come to homes of comfort and fields of enterprise in the New ; and every attempt to abridge their privilege of becoming citizens and owners of the soil among us ought to be resisted with inflexible deter mination. XVI. That every nation has a clear right to alter or change its own Govern ment, and to admiuister its own concerns in such manner as may best secure the rights and promote the happiness of the people, and foreign interference wiih that right is a dangerous violation of the law of nations, against which all independ ent Governments should protest, and en deavor by all proper means to prevent; and especially is it the duty of the Ameri can Government, representing the chief Republic of the world, to protest against, and by all proper means to prevent, the intervention of Kings and Emperors I against nations seeking to establish for ! themselves republican or constitutional Governments. XVII. That the independence of Hayti ought to be recognised by mir Govern ment, and our commercial relations with it placed on the footing of the most favor ed nations. XVIII. That as, by the Constitution, " the citizens of each State shall be en titled to all privileges and immunities of citizens of the several %States," the prac tice of imprisoning colored seamen of other States, while the vessels to which they belong lie in port, and refusing to I exercise the right to bring such cases be fore the Supreme Court of the United : States, to test the legality of such pro ceedings, is a flagrant violation of the Constitution, and an invasion of the rights of the citizens of otther States, utterly in consistent wiih the professions made by the slaveholders, that they wish the pro visions of the Constitution faithfully ob served by every State in the Union. XIX. That we recommend the intro- i duction into all treaties, hereafter to be i negotiated between the United States and | foreign nations, of some provision for the amicable settlement of difficulties by a re sort to decisive arbitration. XX. That the Free Democratic party is not organized to aid either the Whig or Democratic wing of the great Slave Com promise party of the nation, but to defeat thrm both ; and that repudiating and re nouncing both, as hopelessly corrupt, and utterly unworthy of confidence, the pur- I pose of the Free Democracy is to take possession of the Federal Government, and administer it for the better protection of the rights and interests of the whole people. XXI. That wo inscribe' on our banner, Free Soil, Free Speech, Free Labor, and Free Men, and under it will fight on aiid fight ever, until a triumphant victory shall reward our exertion*. XXII. That upon this Platform the Con vention presents to ihe American People, as a candidate for the office of President ?of the United States, John P. Hale, of New Hampshire, and as a candidate for the office of Vice President of the United States, George W. Julian, of Indiana, and earnestly commends them to the sup port of all fieeinen and parties. T. A.

The cost of this starch is about the same as common starch, the entire cost not exceeding five cents per .juart, and is made just as quick. It pre serves the clothes and gives them a glossy and enam elled appearance, that no other March can do. This is an entirely new dweoyary. and the first time ever offered to the public. I ask a fee of only one dime for imparting the knowledge how to make this starch ; and I expect to make more oat of it at that low price than I could by selling it to a few of the rick for five dollars, whieh lias been done.
