WASHINGTON, D. 0.
The National Era is a weekly newspaper,
devoted to Literature and Polities.
In Literature, it sims to unite the Beautiful
with the True, and to make both immediately
subservient to the practioal purposes of every
day life.
In Polities, it advocates the Rights of Man,
and the Equality of Rights, and opposes what
ever violates or tends to violate them, whether
this be Involuntary Personal Servitude, Civil
Despotism. Spiritual Absolutism, Class Legis
lation, tho Sttifishnoss 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 isauos on which they have boon arrayed
against each other are obsolete or settled, and
that they are now chiefly nsod by the Sectional
Interest of Slavery, to impair the love of Lib
erty natural to tho American mind, and to
subjugate the American Pcoplo to its rule. Dis
claiming all connection with them, it yet sym
Eathises with those of their adherents who are
oneutly seeking through them to advanoo the
substantial interests of the country, although
it mudfc bolieve that they ha7e not choson the
better way.
It is a supporter of the Independent Democ
racy, which holds that the Truths of the Dec
laration of Independonoe are practical, that in
tnoir light the Constitution of the United
States is to bo interpreted, that to them the
laws and institutions and usages of tho coun
try should be conformed?a Party, whose
motto ii, Union, not for the sake of Union,
but for. the sake of Freedom and Progress;
and Law, not for the 6ake of Law, but for the
Protection of Human Rights and Interests?
the enly Bure foundation of order and concord.
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'' for nobody except its editor, and recogni
sing no authority in any quarter to prescribe its
course and policy.
The Eighth Volume of the Era will com
mence on the first of January ensuing, and be
enlarged by tho addition of four columns.. We
have neglected no means that could promise to
make it an agreeable companion for the House
hold, and an effioient oo-adjutor to the enlight
ed Politician. It haB scoured able correspond
ents at home and abroad, and no journal in
the country can surpass the Era as it respects
contributors to its Literary Department
The Era publishee condonsed reports of the
proceedings of Congress, explains movements
in that body, the causes of whioh do not always
lie upon the surface, and from its position is
enabled to koep a oonstaot watch upon the ac
tion of the Federal Government in relation
to all questions at issue between Liberty and
Slavexy.
Tho only journal at the seat of the Federal
Government, representing the Anti-Slavery
Sentiment of the Republic, while the Pro-Sla
Terr Sentiment is represented here by four
daily papors, nearly all of thom being liberally
sustained by Governmental patronage, it aske
the support of all who believe, in sincerity, that
the Union was formed to secure the blessings
of Liberty, and not to perpetuate the curso oi
Slavery.
Payment in advance is invariably required.

tion of the paper to issue, all subscriptions
should be renewod before they expire. We

It will hold do fellowship with the Whig

Human Rights and Intercuts?the only eare
foundation of order and oonoord.
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 exeopt it* editor, and rec
ognising no autbonty in any quarter to pre
scribe its eouree and policy.
In Literature, it will aim to unite the Beau
tiful with the Trne, and to make both immedi
ately subservient to the praotical purposes of j
evory-day life.
Able correspondents, at home and abroad,
have been secured, and ample provision has
been made for its Literary Miscellany.
It will publish cqndensed reports of the pro
ceedings of Congress, explain movements in
that body, the causes of whioh 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 Weetiy
Era, which, during the year about to close, has
reaohed the number of twenty-eight thousand,
must make it an eligible medium for advertisers.
The Daily Era will be 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 session.) at
FIVE DO.LI.AK3 FOR THAT PERIODj and should
the result then warrant, the publication will
be resumed on the 1st of September following,
by the year.
As but sixteen days intervene between this
and the 2i of January, it is important that
subscriptions be forwarded at once.
Payment in advance will be invariably re
quired. G. BAILEY J

A beautiful Engraving in each Number.
TUB LIVING AGE has been abundantly honored
by the approbation of the best judges; it has
been pronounced to be soand and vigorous; various
and entertaining; foil 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 wives and children. We shall now
endeavor to add to these intrinsic exoellences the
greater attractions of Art, and, beginning with 1844,
Every Number unit contain an Impression from
a beautiful Steel Plate.
The 52 Plates a year will alone be worth the price
of subscription.
This work is made op of the elaborate and stately
essays of the Edinburgh, Quarterly, and other Re
views; and Dlaclvood i noble criticisms on poetry,
his*keen political commentaries, highly wrought
tales, and viyid descriptions of rural and mountain
scenery; and the eonti ibntions to literature, history,
and common life, by the sagacious Spectator, th*
sparkling Examiner, the judicious Athenctiim, th?
busy ana industrious Literary Gazette, the sensibit
and comprehensive Britannia, the sober and respect
able Chnetian Ohterver, these are intermixed with
the military and naval reminiscences of the Unite*
Service, aod with the best articles of the Dublin Uni I
vernty, Neir> Monthly, Fraeer't, Tait't,Ainjworth'?,
llood i, and Sporting Magazine*, and of Chamber* I
admirable Journal. We do not consider it beneatb
oar dignity to borrew wit and wisdom from Punch,
and, when we think it good enough, make use of the
thunder of The Timet. We shall increase our rari I
ety by importations from the continent of Europe
and from the new growth of the British colonies. I
THE LIVING AGE is published every Saturday,
by LITTELL, SON, A COMPANY corner ef Tre
raont and Bromfield streets, Boston. Price 121 cent*

P08TAGE PREE.
We will send the Living Age, postage free, to ali
subscribers within the United States who remit it

offered to the public. I ask a fee of only one dime
for Imparting tbe knowledge how to make this starch ;

than I could by selling it to a few of the rich for five

more with facts, with actual experience and observa
