PK0BPKCTU8 Or THE EIGHTH VOLUME OF THE HATIOEAL EBA. U. BAII.Kr, EDITOR AND PROPRIETOR. JOHN a. WHITTUCR, CORRESPONDING EDITOR. WASHINGTON, D. 0. The National Era is a weekly newspaper, devoted to Literature and Politic*. In Literature, it eims to unite the Beautiful with the True, and to make both immediately subservient to the practical pursues of every day life. In Politics, it advocate** the Rights of Man, and the Equality of Rights, and opposes what ever violated or tonds to violate them, whether this be Involuntary Personal Servitudo, 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 Democratic organizations, believing that the main issues on which they have been arrayed against eaoh other are obsolete or settled, and that thoy are now chiefly used by the Sectional Interest of Slavery, to impair the lovo of Lib erty natural to the American mind, and to subjugate the American People to its rule. Dis claiming all oonnoetion with them, it yet sym pathises with those of their adheronts who arc honestly seeking through them to advanoe the substantial interests of the country, although it must believo that they^have not chosen the hotter way. '*?" It is a supporter of the Independent Democ racy, which nolds that the 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 ooun try should be eonformed?a Party, whoso motto is, Union, not for the sake of Union, but for the sako of Freedom and Progress; and Lata, not for the sake of Law, but for the Protection of Human Rights and interests? the only sure foundation ol' order and ooncord. In no sense is it the organ of a Party, or a mere Party Paper, but absolutely " free and independent," claiming to speak " by author ity'1 for nobody ezoept its eaitor, and recogni sing no authority in any quarter to prescribe its course and policy. Tho Eighth Volume of the Era will com mence on the first of January ensuing, and be enlargod by the addition of four columns. We have neglected no means that oould promise to make it an agreeable companion for tho House hold, and an officient oo-adjutor to the enlight ed Politician* It has securod able correspond ents at homo 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 iu that htiay, the causes of which do not always lie upon tho surfaoe, and from its position is enabled to koep a constant watch upon the ao tion of the Federal Government in relation to all questions at issue botwecn Liberty and Slavery. The only journal at the scat of the Federal Government, representing the Anti-Slavery Sentimeut of the Republic, while the Pro-Sla very Sentiment is represented horo by four daily papers, nearly au of them being liberally sustained by Governmental patronage, it ask* the support of all who believe, in sincerity, that the Union was formed to secure the blessings of Liberty, and not to perpetuate the ourso 01 Slavery.

I shall issue, on tho 2d day of January en suing, the Daii.y National Era, a Political and l.iterary Newspaper. In Politics, it will advocate the Rights of Man, and the Equality of Rights, and oppose whatever violate* or tends to violate them, whethor this be Involuntary Personal Servi tude, Civil Despotism, Spiritual Absolutism, ('lass Legislation, the Sclfisbnoss of Capital, the Tyranny of Combination, the Oppression of a Majority, or the Exaotioos of a Party. It will hold no fellowship with the Whig and Democratio organizations, believing that the main i*sues on whioh they have been ar rayed against each other are obsolete or settled, and that they aro now ohicfly usod by the Seo tional Interest of Slavery, to impair the love of Lil*rty natural to the American mind, and to subjugate tho American People to its rnls. Dis claiming all connection with them, it will yet sympathise with those of their aJberents who are honostly soeking through them to advanoe the substantial interests of the country, although it must believo that they havo not ohosen tho better way. It will be a supporter of'tho Independent Domoor*-f, which holds that tho Truths of the Declaration of Independence are practical : that in their light the Constitution of the United States is to bo interpreted; that to them tho laws and institutions and usAgeM of the oountry should lie conformed?a Party, whoso motto is, Union, not for tho aake of Union, but for tho '?k* of Freedom and Progress, and Imw, not !dr the sake of Law, but lor the protection of Human Righto and Interests?the only sure foundation of order and eonoord. In no seose will it be the organ of a Party, or a mere Party Paper, but absolutely 'free and independent," claiming to siwak by "au thority " for nobody except ito editor, and rec ognising no authority in any quarter to pre scribe ito oourae and policy. In Literature, it will aim to unite the Beau tiful with the True, and to make both immedi ately subservient to the practical purposes of every-day life. Able correspondents, at homo and abroad, have been secured, and ample provision has been mado for ito Literary Misoellany. It will publish condensed reports of the pro ceedings of Congress, explain movemooto in that body, the causes of which do not ulwayd he upon the surfaoe, and from ito position l>e able to keep a constant watch upon the action of the Federal Government in relation to all questions at issue between Liberty and Slavery. The extensive subscription of the Weekly Era, which, during the year about to close. hits roacbud the number of twenty-eight thousand, must make it an eligible medium for advertisers. The Daily Era will bo issued on a sheet 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 sossion,) at FIVE DOLLARS KOK THAT PERIOD; and should the result then wahrant, the publication will be resumed on the 1st of September following, by the year. As but sixtoen days intervene between this and the 2d of January, it ia important that subscriptions be forwardod at once. Payment in advance will be invariably re quired. G. BAILEY.

TUB LIVING AGE has been abundantly honored by the approbation of ths best judges; it has been pronounced to be sound and vigorous; various and entertaining; full of spirit and life; uniting the qualities which gratify the soholar, the philosopher, and the man of business, with those which recom mend it to tbeir wives and children. We shall now endeavor to add to these intrinsic excellences ths greater attractions of Art, and, beginning with 1854, Every Number will contain an Impression from a beautiful Steel Plate. The 52 Plates a year will alone b? worth ths pries of subscription. This work is made up of the elaborate and stately essays of the Edinburgh, Quarterly, and other Re views; and Blackwood's noble criticisms on poetry, his keen political commentaries, highly wrought tales, and vivid descriptions of rnral and mountain scenery; and the contributions to literature, history, and common life, by the sagacious Spectator, the sparkling Rcrmmimtr, the judicious Atfutumvi, the busy and industrious Literary Gazette, the sensibls and comprehensive Britannia, the sober and respect able Christian Observer; these are intermixed with the military and naval reminiscences of the United Service, and with the best articles of the Dublin Uni versity, New Monthly, Fraser's, Tail's,Ainsworth's, Hood's, and Sporting Magazines, and of Chambers admirable Journal. We do not consider it beneath our dignity to borrew wit and wisdom from Pavch, and, when we think it good enough, make us? of the thunder of The Times. We shall Increase our vari ety by importations from the eontinent of Europe, and ffom the new growth of the British oolonies.
