The National Era is a weekly newspaper, devoted to Utorature and Politioa. In Literature, it aims to unite the Beautiiul with the Truo, and to mako both immediately subservient to the practical purposes of every day life. , . In Politic?> it advocates tho Rights of Man, and the Equality of Rights, and opposes what ever violates or tends to violate them, whether tM? he Involuntary Personal Sorvitude, Civil Despotism, Spiritual AlMolutiamf Clawa Legis lation, tho Selfishness of Capital, tho 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 tho main issues on which they havo been arrayed against oach other are obsolete or settled, and that they aro now chiefly used by the Soctionftl Interest of Slavery, to impair the love of Lib erty natural to the American mind, and to subjugate tho Amorican People to ito rule. -Dis claiming all connection with them, it yet sym pathises with thoso of thoir adherents who are honestly seeking through them to advance tho substantial interests of tho country, although it must believe that they have not chosou the better way. - It is a supporter of the Independent uemoo raoy, whioh 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 ooun 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 Law, uot for the sake of Law, but for tho Protection of Human Rights and Interests? the only sure foundation of order and concord. In no Bense is it the organ of a Party, or u mere Party Paper, but absolutely " free and independent," claiming to speak " by author ity" for nobody except its editor, and recogni sing no authority in any quarter to presoribo its course and poliov. The Eighth Volume of the Era will com menoe on the first of January ensuing, and bo enlarged by the addition of four columns. We have neglected no means that oould promise to make it an agreeable companion for the House hold, and an efficient oo-aajutor to tho enlight ed Politician. It has secured ablo 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 condensed 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 to all questions at issue between Liberty and Slavery. The only journal at the seat of the Fedora! Government, representing the Anti-Slavery Sentiment oif the Republio, while the Pro-Sla very Sentiment is represented here bv four daily papers, noarly all of them being liberally sustained by Governmental patronage, it ask* the support of all who believe, in sinoerity, that the Union was forraod to secure the blessing* of Liberty, and not to perpetuate the curt* of Slavery.

Washington, Deceinl>er 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 ol 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 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: J. 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 tlje 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 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. 1 hat 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 agen'ts 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 l.rw; aud, 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 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 ofi 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 1850 is repugnant to the Constitution, to the principles of the common law, to the spirit of Christianity, and to the senti ments of the civilized world. We there fore deny its binding force upon the American People, aud demand its imme diate and total repeal. VIII. That the doctrine that any human law is a finality, aud 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. 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, aud 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 tlrt? 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 and maxims of De mocracy, and wholly inadequate to the settlement of the questions of which they are claimed to be aii adjustment. X. That iio permanent settlement of the Slavery question can be looked for, except in the practical recognition of the truth that Slavery ia sectional, and Free dom national; by the total separation of the General Government from Slavery, and the exercise of its legitimate and consti tutional iiiHuencc 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 lile, the right of all men to the soil is as sacied as their right to life itself. XII. That the public lauds 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 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 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 expenses of tin; public service, and to pay oil 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 States, so far as may be consistent with the prompt and eliicient 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 emigrants and exiles from the Old World should find a cordial wel come to homes of comfort and lields of enterprise in the New ; and every attempt to abridge their privilege of becoming citizens and owners of the soil among us ought lo 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 interference witli 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, re presenting the chief Kepublie of the world, to protest against, and by all proper means to prevent, the intervention of Kings ami Emperors against nations seeking to establish for themselves republican or constitutional Governments. XVII. That the independence of Hayti ought to be recognised by our Govern ment, and our commercial relations with it placed 011 the footiugof 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 (he vessels to which I hey belong lie in port, and refusing to exercise the right to bring such cases Im; fore the Supreme Court of the United States, to test the legality ol such pro ceedings, is a flagrant violation of the Constitution* and an invasion of the rights of the citizens of ottlier 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 arbitration. XX. That the Free Democratic party is not organized lo 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 both, as hopelessly corrupt, and utterly unworthy of confidence, the pur pose of the Free Democracy is to take possession of the Federal Government, ami administer it lor the better protection of the rights and interests of the whole people. XXI. That we inscribe on our banner, Fref. Soil, Free Speech, Free Labor, "and Free Men, 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 Stales, John P. Hale, of New Hampshire, and as a candidate for the office of Vice President of the United Slates, George W. Julian, of Indiana, and earnestly commends them to the sup port of all freeman and parties.
