WASHINGTON, 1). C. PKOSPECTU8 0? THE EIGHTH VOLUME OF THE RATIONAL EBA. Q. BAII.EY, EDITOR AND PROPRIETOR. JOHN a. WltlTTIER, CORRESPONDING EDITOR. WASHINGTON, D. C. The National Era in a weekly newspaper, devoted to Literature and Polities. In Literature, it t ims to unite the Beautiful with tho True, and to make both immediately subsorvient to the praotical purposes of every day life. , ... In Politics, it advocates tho Rights of Man, and the Equality of Righta, and opposes what ever violates or tends to violate them, whether this be Involuntary Personal Servitude, Civil Despotism, Spiritual Absolutism, Class Legis lation, tho Selfishness of Capital, the Tyranny of Combination, the Oppression of a Majority, or the Exaotions of Party. It holds no fellowship with the Whig and Democratic organizations, believing that the main issues on which they have been arrayed against each other are obsolete or settled, and that thoy are now chiefly used by the Sectional Interest of Slavery, to impair tho love of Lib erty natural to tho American mind, and to Bubjugate the American People to its rulo. Dis claiming all connection with them, it yet sym pathizes with thoso of their adherents who are honestly seeking through them to advance the substantial intorests of tho country, although it must bcliero that they have not choscn the botter way. It is ft supporter of tho Independent Domoo racy, which holds 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 the laws and institutions and usages of the coun try should be conformed?a Party, whose motto is, Union, not for the sake of Union, but for tho sake of Freedom and Progress; and Law, not for the sake of Law, but for the Protection of Human Rights and Interests tho only sure foundation of order and ooncord. In no sense is it tho organ of a Party, or a mere Party Paper, but absolutely " free and independent," claiming to speak " bv author ity'' for nobody except its editor, and reoogni sing no authority in uuy quarter to prescribe its courso and polioy. Tho Eighth Volume of the Era will cora menoa on the first of January ensuing, and be enlarged by tho addition of four columus. We havo neglected no means that could promise to make it an agrooablo oompanion for the House hold, and an efficient co-adjutor to tho enlight ed Politician. It has seoured ablo correspond ents at home and abroad, and no journal in thn country can surpass tho Era as it respects contributors to its Literary Department. Tho Era publishes condensed reports of the proceedings of Congress, explains movements in that body, the oausett of which do not always lie upon tho surfacc, and from its position is enabled to koep a oanntimfc watch upon the ac tion of tho Federal Government in relation to all questions at issue between Liborty and Slavery. The only journal at tho scat of the Federal Government, representing the Anti-Slavery Sentiment of the Republic, while tho Pro Sla very Sentimont is represented here by four daily papers, nearly all of them being liberally sustained by Governmental patronage, it asks the support of all who beliove, in sinoerity, that the Union was formed to secure the blessings of Liberty, and not to perpetuate the curse or Slavery. Payment in advance is invariably required. To prevent annoyance and loss to oursolvee and readers, to proacrve their filoa unbroken, and to enable - us to know how largo an edi tion of the paper to i*uo, all subscriptions should be renewod before they expire.

I shall issue, on the 2d day of January en suing, tho Daily National Era, a Political and Literary Newspaper. In Politics, it will advooato the R'ghts of Man, and the Equality of Right*, and oppose whatever violate* or tends to violate thorn, whether thia be Involuntary Personal Servi tude, Civil Despotism, Spiritual Absolutism, Clans Legislation, the SolfbhnesH of Capital, the Tyranny of Combination, the Opprofnion of a Majority, or the Emotions of a Party. , It will hold no fellowship with tho Whig and Democratio organizations, believing that the main issues on whioh they have bran ar rayed against each other are obsolete or settled, and that they are now ohiefly used by the Seo tional Interest of Slavery, to impair the love of Liberty natural to the American mind, and to subjugate the Amerioan People to ite rule. Dis claiming all connection with tltem, it will yet sympathies with those of their adherents who are honestly seeking through them to advance the substantial interests of the oountry, although it muRt believo that they have not chosen the bettor way. , It will be a supporter of tho Independent Democracy, whioh holds that tho Truths of the Declaration of Independence arc practical / that in their light the Constitution of the United States is to be interpreted/ that to thom the laws and institutions and usages of the oountry should be oonformed?a Party, whoee motto is, Union.pot for the sake of Union, but for tho *ake of Freedom and Progress; and /xw, not tor the sake of Law, but for the protection of DAILY NATIONAL ERA.

In no sense will it be the organ of a Party, or a mere Party Paper, but absolutely ' free and independent," claiming to speak by "au thority " for nobody except 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 True, and to make both immedi ately subservient to the practical purposes of every-day lifj. Able correspondents, at home and abroad, have been Secured, and ample provision has been made for its Literary Misoeliany. It will publish oondensed reports of the pro ceedings of .Congress, explain movements in that body, the causes of which do not always lie upon the surfaoe, and from its position be able to keep a constant watoh upon the aotion of the Federal Government in relation to all questions at issue between Liberty and Slavery. The extensive subscription ot the Weekly Era, which, during the year about to close, has reached the number of twenty-eight thousand, muBt make it ao eligible medium for advertisers. The Daily Era will be i?iued on a sheet as large as that of the Daily National Intelligencer, on the 2d day of January, 1854, and daily there after, until tbe 1st of September, 1854, (or long or, should Congress continue in session,) at FIVE DOLLARS FOR THAT PBRJOl); and skould the result then warrant, the publication will be resumed on tho 1st of September following, by the year.

THB LIVING AGE has been abundantly honored by the approbation of the 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 scholar, the philosopher, and the man of business, with (hose which recom mend it to their wives and children. We shall now endeavor to add to these intrinsic excellences the greater attractions of Art, and, beginning with 1864, Every Number trill contain an Impressionfrom a beautiful Steel Plate. The 62 Plates a year will alone be worth the prios of subscription. This work is made up of the elaborate and stately essays of the Edinburgh, Quarterly, and other Re views; and Blackwoods noble oriticisms on poetnr, his keen political commentaries, highly wrought talee, and vivid descriptions of rural and mountain scenery; and the oonti ibutions to literature, history, and common life, by the sagacious Spectator, the sparkling Eramtner, the judicious Atkrvaum, th? busy and industrious Literary Oazrtte, the sensible and comprehensive Bruannia, the sober and respect able Chnsttan Observer; these are intermixed witk the military and naval reminiscences of the United Service, and with the best articles of the Dublin Uni vertity, New Monthly, Frater't, Tail's,At nsworth'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 Panch, and, when we think it good enough, make us* of tb? thunder of Ths Tiwut. We shall increase our vari ety by importations from the eontinent of Europe, anil from the new growth of the British eolonies.

This volume should be in the hands of every culti vator of these delicious fruits, for it embodies, in a compact and available form, the experience of accom plished and practical Horticulturists on subjects which have come directly under their own observa don for a long series of years. Of a former edition of" Buchanan on the Grape," we subjoin a few NOTICES OF THE PRESS. Mr. Downing, in his Horticulturist, says: " It deals more with facts, with actual experience and observa tion, and lei s with speculation, supposition, and be lief, than unything on this topic that has yet appear ed in the United States. In other words, a man may take it, and plant a vineyard, and raise grapes with success."

T has been the purpose of the Trustees cf this School, from lho first, to make it both safe and inviting to Students; and we believe we may now safely recommend it, undor the supervision and rare of President Leonard G. Calkins, wbote ability for that responsible office has been most happily tested, assisted by a competent ' Board of Instruction." Free from the unholy influence of larger towns, ard per vaded by moral influences, republican habits, and Christian example, associated with manusl labor, we think parents must foel a degree ot security, begotten by no other set of cjroumstances One arrangement in this Institution, not to be over looked in this day ol " public speaking," is a Rhetor ical Class, with daily exercises in extemporaneous speaking, under the careful training of the President. The student of small means, aspiring to a thorough Intellectual education by his own energies, will find in this College sympathy and aid in his arduous and noble work The Manual Labor Department of tho School is under the supervision of Mr. Luther Wellington, a practical fanner, a kind and benevolent man, on a farm of one hundred and fifty-seven acres. A pritnsry school is taught by Mi s Ketiah King, a thorough and efficient teacher, for the accommoda tion of any one who may tot be prepared to enter tho Academic Department.
