WASHINGTON, JP. C. PROftPECTUS OF THE EIGHTH VOLUME OF THE N ATIOHAL XftA. ft. BAILEY, EDITOR AMU PROPRIETOR. JOHN O. WHITTIKR, CORRESPONDING EDITOR. WASHINGTON, D. 0. < The National Era is a weekly newspaper, devoted to Literature and Polities. In Literature, it oims to unite the Beautiful with the. True, und to make both immediately subservient to the practical purposes of every day life. In Politics, it advocates the Rights of Man, and the Kquality of Rights, and opposes what, ever violates or tends to violate them, whether this be involuntary Personal Servitude, Civil Despotism, Spiritual Absolutism, Clans Legis lation, the SolfishneBS of Capital, tho Tyranny of Combination, the Oppression of a Majority, or the Exactions of Party. It holds no fellowship with the Whig and Domoeratio organisations, believing that tho main issues on whioh they have been arrayed against oaeh other are obsolete or settled, and that they are now chiefly used by the Sectional Interest of Slavery, to impair the love of Lib erty natural to the American mind, and to subjugate tho American People to its rule. Dis claiming all oonuection with thom, it yet sym pathises with those of their adherents who are nunestly seeking through theui to advance the substantial interests of tho oountry, although it must believo that they havo not chosen the better way. It is a supporter of tho Independent Democ racy, 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 tho laws and institutions and usages of the coun 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 Lato, not for the sake of Law, but for tho Protection of Human Rights and Interests? the only, sure foundation ol' order and oonoord. In no sense is it the organ of a Party, or a mero Party Paper, but absolutely " free and independent," claiming to speak " bv author ity'- for nobody except its editor, and recogni sing no authority in any quarter to prescribe its oourse and policy. The Eighth Volume of tho Era will oorn menoe on tho first of January onsuing, and bo enlarged by the addition of four columns. Wo have neglected no means that could promise to make it an agreeable companion for the House bold, and an efficient oo-aajutor to tho enlight ed Politician. It has seoured able correspond ents at home and abroad,?an<] no journal in the oountry can surpass the h -s 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 surfooe, and from its position is enabled to keep a constant watoh upon the ac tion of the Federal Government in relation to all questions at issue between Liberty and Slavery. The only journal at the seat of the Federal Government, representing the Anti-Slavery Sentiment of the Republic, while tho Pro-Sla very Sentiment is represented here by four daily papers, nearly all of them being liberally ftustainea by Governmental patronage, it asks the support of all who believe, in sinoerity, that the Union was formed to secure the blessings of Liberty, and not to perpetuate the ourse oi Slavery. P-ayment in advance is invariably required. To prevent annoyance and loss to ourselves and readers, to preserve their files unbroken, and to onablo us to know how large an edi tion of tho paper to i*suo, all suliscriptions should be ronowed before they expire.

It will hold no fellowship with tho. Whig and Deinooratic organizaiums, believing that the main iesuos on whioh they havo boon ar rayed against each other are obsolete or settled, and that they are now ohiofly used by the Seo tional Interest of Slavery, to impair tho love of Lil*rty natural to the Amerioan mind, and to subjugate (he Amerioan People to its rule. Dis claiming all connection with them, it will yet sympathixo with those of their adherents who aro honestly aoeking through them to advanoe tho substantial interests of tho oountry, although it must believe that they have not ohosen tbe better way.

In no sense will it be the organ of a Party, or a mere Party Paper, but absolutely " tree and independent," claiming to si>oak by " au thority " for nobody exoapt its editor, and rec ognising no authority in any quarter to pre scribe its course and policy. In Literature, it will aim to unite the Beau tiful with the TVue, and to uiako both immedi ately subservient to the practical purposes of every-day life. Able correspondents, at homo and abroad, havo been secured, and ample provision ban been made for its Literary Misoellanjr. It will publish condensed reports of the pro ceedings of Congress, explain movements in that body, the causes of which do not always lie upon the surface, and from its position bo able to keep a constant watch upon tho notion of the Federal Government in relation to all queetions at issue between Liberty and Slavery. The extensive subscription of tho Weekly Era, which, duriug the year about to ulose, has reaohed the number of twenty-eight tbousaui), must make it an eligible medium for advertisers. The Daily Era will be issued on a shoot as large as that of the Daily National Intelligencer, on the 2d day of January, 1854, and daily there after, until the 1st of September, 1854, (or long er, should Congress continue in session,) at FIVE DOLLAHH KOK THAT PERIOD; ?Od should the result then warrant, the publication will bo resumod on the 1st of September following, by the year.

THE LIVING AGE has been abundantly honored by the approbation of the best judges; it has been pronounced to he sound and vigorous; various and entertaining; full of spirit and life; uniting the qualities which gratify the scholar, the philosopher, and the man of business, with those which reoom mend it to their wive* and children.
