The National Era is ? weekly newspaper, devoted to Literature and Politics. In Literature, it nims to unite tho Boautilul with the True, aud to make both immediately subtlervient to the practical purposon of ovcry day life. In Politics, it advocates the Rights of Man, and the Equality of Rights, and opposes what ever violates or tonds to violate them, whether thia be Involuntary Poraonal Servitude, Civil Despotism, Spiritual Absolutism, Class Legis lation, the Selfishness of Capital, the Tyranny of Combination, the Oppression of a Majority, or the Exactions of Party. It holds no fellowship with the Whig and m Democratic organizations, believing that .the main issues on which they have beon arrayed against each other arc obsolete or settlod, and that they are now ohiofly used by the Sectional Interest of Slavery, to impair the lovo of Lib erty natural to the A marie an mind, and to subjugate tho American People to its rule. Dis claiming all connection with thorn, it yet sytu ' pathiuw with those of their adherents who uro honestly seeking through them to advance the substantial interests ot the country, although it must believe that they have not chosen the better way. _ , l(. It is a supporter of tho Independent Democ racy, which nolds that tho 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 bo conformed?a Party, whose motto is, Union, not for tho sake of Union, but for tho sake of Freedom and Progress; and Lav, not for the sake of Law, but for the Protection of Human Rights and Interests? tho only Buro foundation of order and oonoord. In no sense is it the organ of a Party, or a mere Party Paper, but absolutely " free and independent," ciaimiug to speak " by author ity >' for nobody exoept its editor, and recogni sing no authority in any quarter to prescribe ?fc? course and policy. The Eighth Volume of the Era will com mence on the first of January ensuing, aud be enlarged 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 oo-adjutor to the enliglit ed Politician. It has secured able oorresjxmd onts at home and abroad, and no journal in the oountry can surpass tho Era as it respects contributors to its Literary Denartmenk The Era publishes oondensed reports of the proceedings of Congress, explains movements lu 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 ac tion of the Foderal Government in relation to all questions at issue between Liberty and Slavery. The only journal at the seat of the hederal Government, representing the Anti-Slavery Sentiment of tho Ropublic, while tho 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 l?eliovo, in sinoerity, that the Union was formed to secure tho blessings of Liberty, and not to perpetuate the curse of Slavery. z Payment in advance is invariably required. To prevent annoyance and loss to ourselves and readers, to preserve their files unbroken, and to enable us to know how Urge an edi% tion of the paper to uwue, all subscriptions should be renewed before they expire.

I shall issue, on the 2d ?lay of January en suing, the Daii.y Nationai. Era, a Political and Literary Newspaper. In Politics, it will advocate tho Rights of Man, and the Equality of Rights, and oppose whatever violates or tends to violate them, whether this be Involuntary Personal Scrvi tude, "Civil Despotism, Spiritual Absolutism, Class Legislation, the SolfichnesH 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 that the main issues on whioh they have been ar rayed against each other are obsolete or settled, and that they aro now chiefly used by the Sec tional Interest of Slavery, to impair the love of Liberty natural to the American mind, and to subjugato tho Amerioan Poople to its rule. Dis claiming all oonnoction with them, it will yet sympathise with tliodb of their adherents who are honestly Becking through them to advance tho substantial interests of tho oountry, although it must believe that thoy have not chosen tho lietter way. It will lie a supporter of the Independent Demoorat-f, which holds that the Truth* of tho Deelarati?m of Independence aro practical .? that in their light tho Constitution of the United State* is to be interpreted; that to them tho laws snd institutions and mages of the country should be oonformed~<-a Party, whose motto is, Union, not for the sake ol Union, but for the sake of Freedom and Progress; and Law, not for the sake of Law, bat for the protection of Human Bights juid Interests?the only sure foundation of order and concord. In no bense will it be tho organ of a Party, or a mere l'arty Paper, hut absolutely ' free and independent," claiming to Hpeak by "au thority " for nobody except its editor, and rec ognising no authority in any quarter to pro Horibe 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 tho practical purposes of every-day life. Able correspondents, at home and abroad, have been ttecurcd, and ample provision has been madefor its Literary Miscellany. It will publish condensed reports ot' the pro ooedingu of Congress, explain movement* in that body, tho causes of which do not always lie upon the surfaoe, and from its position bo able to keep a constant watch upon the action of tho Federal Government in relation to all questions at issue between Liberty and Slavery. The extensivo subscription ot tho Weekly Era, wbioh, during the year about to uloso, ha* reached the number of twenty-eight thousand, must make it an eligible medium for advertiscis. The Daily Era will bo issued on a sheet as large as that of the Daily National Intelligencer, on tho 2d day of J auuary, 1854, and daily there after, until tho 1st of Soptembor, 1854, (or long or, should Congress continue in sesuion,) at fivk do i.i. a its kor that pkrioi>; and should the result then warrant, tho publication will be resumed on the 1st of September following, by the year. As but sixteen days intervene between this and the 2d of January, it is important that subscriptions be forwarded at onco. Payment hi advance will be invariably re quired. ? a; BAILEY. Washington, December 15, 1853. INDEPENDENT DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM. ADOPTED AT PITTSBURGH, AUUU8T 12, 1852. Having assembled in 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 slavery; con fiding in the intelligence, patriotism, and the discriminating justice of the American people ; putting our trust in God for the triumph ol 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-ami measures: I. That Governments, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, arc instituted among men to secure to all, those inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, with which they were endowed by their Creator, and of which none can he deprived by valid lewis lation, except for crime. If. 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* darnental principles of equal rights, strict justice, and economical administration. III. riiftt 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 ernmcnt, 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 I uuion, to establish justice, and secure the blessings of liberty, expressly denies to the General Government all power to de prive any person of life, lik'rty, 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 no more power to establish sla very than to establish monarchy, should at once proceed to relieve itself from all re- 1 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, ?nd 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 oflX.50 is repugnant to the Constitution, to the principles of the common law, to the spirit of Christianity, and to the senti meiits of the civilized world. We there fore deny its binding force upon the American People, and demand its imme diate and total repeal. V III. That tho doctrine that any human law is a finality, mid not subject to modi fication 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. I hat the acts of Congress known as the Compromise Measures of |K50, 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 nnd the people to admit new Stnles ; 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, and 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 Slave Law, are proved to Ihi inconsistent with all the principles and maxims of De mocracy, 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 lor, except in the practical recognition of the truth that Slavery in sectional, and Free dom national; by the total separation of the Ceneral Government from Slavery, and the exerciser of itH legitimate and consti tutional influence on the side of Freedom; and by leaving to the States the whole subject of Slavery and the extradition of 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 nor granted to corporations, but should be held as a sa cred trust for the benefit of the people, and should be granted in limited ijuaiiti lies, 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 separate from banking institutions; that inland and ocean postage should be reduced to the lowest possible point; that no more reve nue shodld be raised 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 in the service of the United Sjates, 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, in the exercise of its constitutional powers, to provide for the same. XV. That grants and exiles from the^Old World should find a cordial wel come to homes of comfort and fields of enterprise in the Mew ; and every attempt to abridge their privilege of becoming citizens and owners of the soil among us ought to be resisted with indexible deter mination. XVI. That every nation has a clear right to alter or change its own Govern ment, and to administer its own concerns in such manner as may best secure the rights and promote the happiness of the people, and foreign intelligence 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 tin? 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 Governments. XV II. That the independence of Havti 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, 'he 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 iu port, and refusing to exeretM i he rigltl to bring such cases be* j fore the Supreme Court of the United j States, to test the legality of such pro | cerdiiii-s, is a flagrant violation of the I Constitution, and an invasion of the rights of the citizens of otther States, utlerl\ in consistent with the professions inaue by I the ritrehoMcn, thai they wish the pro I visions of the Constitution faithfully ob I served by every State iu 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 I amicable settlement of difficulties by a re j sort to decisive arbitration. XX. That the Free Democratic parly is not organized to aid either the Whig or j Democratic wing of the great Slave Com j promise party of the nation, but to defeat | | them both ; and thaj repudiating and re I nouiicing both, 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 j people. XXI. That we inscribe on our banner, Free Soil, Free Spercii, Free Labor, and Free Mb*, and under it will fight on and fight ever, until a triumphant victory shall reward our exertions. XXII. That upon this Platform the Con vention presents to the American People, as a candidate for the office of President of the United Slates, 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 freemen and parties.
