devoted to Literature and I'ditto*.
In Literature, it eims to unite the Beautilul
with the True, and to make both immediately
subservient to the praotioal purponos of every
day life.
In Politics, it advocates the Righto of Man,
and the Equality oCRighta, und opposes what
ever violated or tfends to viol ifco them, whether
thin be Involuntary Pnrsomti Servitudo, Civil
Doepotiam, Spiritual Alisolutiem, Class Logi?
lation, the SeliishnosH of Capital, tho Tyranny
of Combination, the Oppression of a Majority,
or the Exactions of Party.
It holds no fellowship with tho Whig and
Democratic organisations, bt Sieving that the
main issues on which they have boon arrayed
against oach other are obeole to or sottlod, and
that they are now chiefly used by the Sectional
Internet of Slavery, to impair tho love of Lib
arty natural to tho American mind, and to
subjugate tho American People to its rule. Dis
claiming all connection with thom, it yet sym
-pathisos with those of tlioir adherents who are
honestly seeking through them to advanee the
substantial interests ot tho country, although
it must believe that they havo not chosen the
bettor way. , ^ _ I
It is a supporter of the Independent Dcmoo- i
racy, which holds that tho Truths of the Doc i
laration of Indepondenoe :iro practical, that in
their light the Constitution of the United
States is to be interpreted, that to them tho

Washington, December 15, 1853.
Having assembled ill National Conven
tion as the delegates of the Free Democra
cy of the United States, united by a com
mon resolve to maintain right against
wrongs, and freedom against sla\ery, con
tidin" in the intelligence, patriotism, and
I he discriminating justice of the[American
people ; putting our trust in Odd lor the
triumph of our cause, and invoking his
guidance in our endeavors to advance it,
we now submit to the candid judgment ot
all men the following declaration o^ 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 lite, liberty, and
the pursuit of happiness, with 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 ol
the-people, the sovereignty of the States,
and the perpetuity of the Union, by the
impartial application to public aflairs, 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 Coustitutiou; and the grants of power
therein ought fo l>e strictly construct! by
all the departments and agents of the Gov
ernment, and it is inexpedient and dan
gerous to exercise doubtful-constitutional
' IV. That the Constitution of the United
States, ordained to form a more perfect
uiiiou, to establish justice, and secure the
blessings of liberty, expressly denies to
the General Government all power to de
prive any person ol life, liberty, or prop
erty, without due process of law; and,
therefore, the Government, having no more
power' to make a slave than to make a
king, and^io 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 or l?.>u
is repugnant to the Constitution, to the
principles of the common law, to the
Spirit of Christianity, and to the scnti-1
ments of the civilized world. We there
fore deny its binding force npoit the
American People, and demand its imme- |
diate and total repeal.
VIII. That the doctrine that any human
law is a finality, aud not subject to modi- j
tication or repeal, is not in accordance
with the creed of the founders of our Gov
ernment, and is dangerous to the liberties
of the people.
IX. That the acts of Congress known
as the Compromise Measures of 1K50, 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, and the
cession of a large territory to the same
State under menace, as an inducement to
the relinquishment of a groundless claim,
aud by their invasion of the sovereignty
of the States and the liberties of the peo
ple, through the enactment of an unjust,
oppressive, and unconstitutional ^Fugitive
Slavo Law, are proved to be inconsistent
with all the principles and maxims of IV
inocracy, and wholly inadequate to the
settlement of the questions of which they
are claimed to l?e an adjustment.
X. That no permanent settlement of
the Slavery question can be looked for,
except in the practical recognition of the
truth that Slavery is sectional, and Free
dom uatiQnal; by the total separation ol
the General Government frpin Slavery, and
the exercise of "its legitimate and consti
tutional influence on the side of Freedom;
and by leaviug to the States the whole
subject of Slavery and the extradition of
fugitives from service.
4I. 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 righ\ to life itself.
XII. That the public lands of the Uni
ted States belong to the people, and should
not be sold to individuals nor granted to
corporations, but should be hold as a sa
cred trust J'or 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, ami sound administrative |
policy, demand that the funds of the Gen- J
eral. Government be kept separate from
banking institutions; that inland and
ocean postage should be reduced to the
lowest possible point; that no more reve
nue should be raised than is required to
defray the strictly necessary expeuses 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, ami privileges, and by the
election by the people of all civil ollicers
in the service of the United States, so far
as may be consistent with the prompt and
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 States, are
'objects of national concern, and it is the
duty of 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 qf becoming
citizens and owners of the soil among us
ought to be resisted with indexible deter
- ' XVI. That every nation has a clear
right to alter or chauge its own Govern
ment, and to administer its own concents
in such manner as may best secure -the
rights and promote the happiuess of the
people, and foreign inteiference with
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
against nations seeking to establish for
themselves republican or constitutional
XVII. That the independence of Hayti
ought to be recognised by our 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 Stajes, while the vessels to" which
they belong lie in port, and refusing to
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 au invasion of the rights
of the citizens of otther States, utterly in
consistent with 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
duction into all treaties, hereafter to be
negotiated between the United States and
foreign nations, of some provision for the
amicable settlement of difficulties by a re
sort to decisive aH>itration.
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
them both ; and that repudiating and re
nouncing l?oth, as hopelessly corrupt, and
utterly unworthy of confidence, the pur
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
XXI. That we inscribe on our banner,
Frkr Soil, Frkr Sprim-h, Frrr Labor,
and Frkr Mkn, and under it will fight on
and fight ever, until a triumphant victory
shall reward our exertions.
XXII. That upon this Platform the Con- I
ventiou presents to the American People,
as a candidate for the office of President
of the Umted States, John P. H>i.r, of
New Hampshire, and as a candidate for
the office of Vice' President of the United
States, Gcoror W. Julian, of Indiana,
and earnestly commends them to the sup
port of all freemen and parties.

Alabaster starch gloss -The most pure,

world. Tbe cost of this starch is about the same as
common starch, the entire eo?t not exceeding fite
cents per quart, and is made just as quick. It pre

is an entirely new discovery, 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 out o^it at that low price
than I could by selling it lo a few of the rich for five
dollars, which has been done. Now, ladies and gen.
