Tho Naticmal Era la a weekly newspaper, devoted io Literature and Politios. la Literature, it rims to unite the Beautiful with the True, and to make both immediately subservient to the practical purposes of every day life. Iu Politics, it advocate* the Rights of Man, and tb?

It holds no fellowship With the Whig and Demooratid orgmixaliors, believing that the main issues on whioh they have been arrayed against each other are obsolete or nettled, and that they are now chiefly used by the Sectional Interest of Slavery, to impair tho lovo of Lib erty natural to tlic Amerioan mind, and to subjugate tho American People to ito rule. Dis claiming all oonnoction w?th them, it yet sym pathises with those of their adherents who are honestly seeking through them to advance the substantial interests of the oountry, although it mubt believe that they have not ohoson the better way. , t _ It is a supporter of the Independent Democ racy, which holds that the Truths of the Dec laration of Independence arc practical, that in their light the Constitution of the United States is to be interpreted, that to tliom the lawe and institutions and usages of tho coun try should be oonformed?a Party, whose motto is, VnioTij not for the sake of Union, but for the sake of Freedom and Progress; and Law, not for the eako of Law, but for the Protection of Human Rights and Interests? the only sure foundation of order and oonoord.

The Eighth Volume of the hra will com mence on the first' of January ensuing, and be enlarged by tho addition of four columns.

It has secured able correspond ents at homo and abroud, and no journal in the oountry oan 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 which do not always lie upon tho 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. Tho only journal at tho scat oF the Federal Government, representing the Anti-Slavery Sentiment of the Rcpublio, while tho Pro-Sla very Sentiment is represented here by four daily papers, nearly all of them being liberally sustained by Governmental patronage^ it askn the support of all who believe, in Sincerity, that tho Unvm was formed to secure the blessings of Liberty, and not to perpetuate tho curse oi Slavery. > , Payment in advance is invariably required.

I shall isaue, on tho 2d day of January on suing, the Daily National Era, a Political and Literary Newspaper. In Politics, it wilt advocate the Rights of Man, and the Equality of Rights, and oppose whatever violated or tends to violate them, whether this be Involuntary Personal Servi tude, Civil Despotism, Spiritual Absolutism, Clam Legislation, the SoHUhnow of Capital, the Tyranny of Combination, the Oppression of a Majority, or the Exactions of a Party. H will hold no fellowship with the Whig and Democratic organization*, believing that the main if sues on whioh they have bwo ar rayed against each other are obsolete or settled, and that they are now chiefly used by the Seo tional Interest of Slavery, to i pi pair the love of Liberty natural to the Amerioan mind, and to subjugate tho American People to its rule. Dia olaiming all connection with them, it will yet sympathise with those of their adherents who are honestly seeking through them to advance the substantial interests of the country, although it must believe that they have not chosen the better way. It will be a supporter of the Independent Democracy, whioh holds that the Troths of the Declaration 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 oountry should be conformed?a Party, whoeo motto is, l/nton, not for the sake of Union, but for the <aka of Freedom and Progress; and Law, not lor the sake of Law, bat for the protection of NATIONAL ERA. NO. 183. Human Righto and Interests?the only sure foundation of or dor and oonoord. in no sense will it be the organ of a Party, or a mere Party Pap?r, but absolutely ' free and independent," claiming to speak by "au thority" lor 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 prajtioul purposes of every-day life. Able correspondent?, at home and abroad, hare been secured, and ample provision has been made for its Literary Miscellany. It will publish oondensed reports of the pro ceedings of C uigross, explain movements in that body, the cautee of which do not always lie upon the surface, and from its position be 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, has reached the number of twenty-eight thousand, must make it an eligible medium for advertisers. The Daily Era will be i*ued on a sheet as large as that of the Daily National Intelligencer, on the 2d day of January, 1854, and daily there after, until tne 1st of September, 1854, (or long er, should Congress continue in session,) at Five DOLLARS FOR THAT PERIOD; and should the result then warrant, the publication will bo resumed on the lot of September following, by the year. As but sixteen days intervene between this and the 2d of January, it is important that subscriptions be forwarded at once. Payment in advance will be invariably re quired. G. BAILEY.

THE 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 those 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 ttrill contain an Impressionfrom a beautiful Steel Plate. The 52 Plates a year will sdone be worth the price of subscription. This work is made up of the elaborate and stately wsjFi of the Edinburgh, Quarterly, and other Re views; and Blof-kioootCi noble criticisms on poetry, his keen political commentaries, highly wrought tales, and vivid descriptions of raral and mountain scenery; and the conUibutions to literature, history, and common life, by the sagacious Sportator^ th? 'parkling Examiner, the juoicious Athrmnum., th? busy and industrious Literary Gazette, the sensible and comprehensive Britannia, the sober and reapect able Christian Obtrrvttr; these are intermixed with the military anfl naval reminiscences of the Unite* Sfrvirr, and with the best articles of the Dublin Uni ******9, Monthly, Kraur't, Tau't,Aituu*orth't, , Hood t, and Sporting Magazine*, and of Chawibrrt admirable Journal. We do not consider it beneath our dignity to borrew wit and wisdom from Panrh, and, when we think it good enough, make use of the thunder of The Timr*. We shall increase our vari | ety by importations from the continent of Europe, and from the new growth of the British colonies.
