PROSPECTUS OF THE EIGHTH VOLUME OF THE NATIONAL ERA. U. BAII.KY, KD1TOR AMD PROPRIETOR. JOHN G. WHITTtBR, CORRESPONDING KDITOR. WASHINGTON, D.O. The National Era is a weekly newspaper, devoted to Literature and Politic*. Id Literature, it aims to unite the Beautiful with the True, aod to make both immediately subservient to the practioal purposes of every day life. In Politics, it advooatos the Rights of Man, and the Equality of Righto, and op|x>ses what ever violatee or tends to violate them, whether thin be Involuntary Personal Servitude, Civil Despotism, Spiritual Absolutism, Class Legis lation, the Selfishness of Capital, the Tyranny of Combination, the Oppression of a Majority, or the Exaotions of Party. It holds uo fellowship with the Whig and Democratic organizatims, believing that tho main issues on which they have been arrayed against each other are obsolete or settled, and that they arc now chiefly used by tho Sectional Interest of Slavery, to impair tho lovo of Lib erty natural to the American mind, and to subjugate the Americau People to its rule. Dis daining all connection with them, it yet sym pathises with thoso of thoir adherents who arc honestly seeking through tliem to advanoe the substantial interests oi' tho country, although it must Itelicve that they have not choson tho better way. It is a supporter of the Independent Democ racy, whioh holds that tho Truths of the Dec laration of Indepondenoo are practical, that in their light tho Constitution of tho United States is to be interpreted, that to them tho laws and institutions and usages of the coun try should be conformed?a Party, whose motto is, Union, not for the sake of Unioo, but for tho sako of Freedom and Progress; and Law, not for the sake of Law, but for the Protection of Human Kights and Interests? the only euro foundation of order and oonoord. In no sense is it the organ of a Party, or a more Party Paper, but absolutely " free and independent," claiming to speak " by author ity'- lor nobody exoept its editor, and rooogoi sing nt> authority in any quarter to presoribo its course and polioy. Tho Eighth Volume of tho Era will com mence 6n the first of January onsuing, and be enlarged by tho addition of four columns. We have neglected no means that coujd promise to mako it an agreeable companion for the House hold, and an efficient co-adjutor to the enlight ed Politician. It has scoured able correspond ents at home and abroad, and no journal in the oountry 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 oausee of whioh do not always lie upon the surfaco, and from its position is enabled to keep a constant watch upon the ac tion of the Federal Government in relation to all questions at issuo between Liberty and Slavery. The only journal at the scat of tho Fedora] Govm-nment, representing the Anti-Slavery Sentiment of tho Republio, while tho Pro-Sla verr Sentiment is represented hore by four daily papers, nearly all of them being liberally sustained by Governmental patronage, it asks the support of all who believe, in sincerity, that tho Unum was formod to secure the blessings of Liborty, and not to porpctuate the oursc of Slavory. Payment in advanoe is invariably required. To prevent annoyenoe and* loss to ourselve* and readers, to preserve their files unbroken, and to euable us to know how largo an edi tion of the paper to issuo, all subscriptions should be renowed before thoy expire.

Washington, December 15, 1853. INDEPENDENT DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM. ADOPTED AT PITTSBURGH, AUGUST 12, 1S62. 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 , i-on tiding 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 liis guidance in our endeavors to advance it, we now submit to the candid judgment oi all men the following declaration of prin ciples and measures: ? r. 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, 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. 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, ami 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, ami secure the blessi ugs of lilierty, expressly denies to the General Government all power to de prive any person of life, libertyror prop erty, without due process ol law; ami, 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 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 Stales, 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, ami demand its imme diate and total repeal. VIII. That the doctrine that any human law is a finality, and 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 libertie of the people. IX. That the acts of Congress known as the Compromise Measures of 18.50, by making the admission of a sovereign Slate 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 altempl to impose unconstitutional limit ations on the power of Congress and ihe 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, anil tin* 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 ol 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 Settleu/'iit of Ihe questions of which they are claimed to be 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 id sectional, and Free dom national ; by the total separation of the General Government from Slavery, and the exercise ol its 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 I'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, 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 lojyest possible point; that no more reve nue should 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 States, so far as may be consistent with the prompt and efficient transaction of the public business. Xf V. I hat 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 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. XVf. 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 |*eople, and foreign interference 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 Governments. XV II. 1 hat the independence of Jfavti ought to be recognised by our Govern ment, ami our commercial relations with it placed on the footing of the most favor ed natiohs. XVIII. That as, by the Constitution, !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 I hey 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 an invasion of the rights of the citizens of otther Stales, 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 bf difficulties by a re sort to decisive arbitration. XX. i hat the Free Democratic party is net 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 both, as hopelessly corrupt, and utterly unworthy of confidence, the pur pose ol 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 we inscribe on our banner, F RRB Soil, Frkk Spebch, Frkk L?hor,' and Frkk Mkn, and under il will fight on and light 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 States, John P. Halk, of New Hampshire, and as a candidate for the office of Vice President of the United States, Gkorgk W. Jumaw, of Indiana, and earnestly commends them to the sup port of all freemen and parties.
