not he unmindful of the altitude in which we are
placed by u recent vote of both liouaot* of Con^rrsj :

of the patriotic motives which have le I to it. Hut
we trust that this decision of Congress increases
rather than diminishes our claim to' the support ot
a higher tiowcr —that of the petrple ; an<l to whom
we confidently appeal to aid us, by ('ten pat nuage,
in sustaining at the seat of government a journal
that is inflexibly devoted to their interests and
the true interests of the country.
It is known to every one, that the chief source
of sustaining a newspaper is not the magnitude of
its subscription list, so much as the advertising
patronage which may be bestowed up u it. In
large commercial cities, indeed, the latter is usinl
I v the concomitant of the former, as it becomes
the obvious interest ol mercantile men to advertise
m t lose papers wliit h are the most extensively cir
culated. Washington, however, is iliff renily situ
ated. Deprive I of the advertising patronage inci
dent to a mercantile community, and burdened
w ith peculiar ami enormous exporss which arc
not elsewhere meuriod, nothing but a very long
list of subscribing p tirona can sust .in a pap r in

if they will acecrpt of service* so humble, vie, ttio’
under.igued. have resolved to > stahlt-h another
Democratic pa o r in the cit y of Richmond. To
this design we have been instigated chiefly bv thr
press ii' and Irequ -nt aolic: t a tions of inntiy of the

our po i'i. til friends, nut ■ ttiy in Virginia, hut
ihmugliont the Union The press is a tower of
strength, and to the tn.iint nance of our political
principles we should ch.crfu ly contribute our men

I" this Journal We will endeavor, with what
ability wc may. to s main the prtncin'cs and doc
trines of the ItopuMi. an party in tin i. piisfinc pu
nty. Utterly repm) nting nil Agrarianism rd'iI

it t-et her wise o polit e to h. s ow upon it.
Wlu'ii men are secure in the enjnvincnl of per

much better investm ut of labor aiul cipit .1, than
can be obtained by any system devised An the pi.r
pose of diverting it iron, its natiiru! into artificial
ehannels. We shill, liter.-f re. oppose a Tariff
fur pr.le. tinn, nut only her. use it is unconstitu
tional , hut because it is in the highest degree un
wise mid impolitic.

are, thcicfore.lo be opposed upon general pVinci

" •'anaii ai'vayj oppose t he expend H u cof last

and unjust, because it lay.- violent ban.Is upon i| J

In short, we esteem the Government ol 'lie ini
ted Slit o- a <: eaturc of the Sovereign Stales of it.is
Union, instituted for p<rti< ular piupo-u*, which
cannot he transcended w ithout the m< st imminent
• 'itnirtrof overthrowing tli t Uni >n, which it w as
the boast of our am e ters to have erei ted, and
W hi' h i should he ou- pride, a# it is our ntcr- st, to

Allhough these arc our own particular views, w e
are l»y no means so h,gutted, or so illiberal, ** to
exclude all ..tlicts from our columns. Our politi
< al opponents .-hall a ways lie welcome, providtd
th :r arguments arc presented in an able and re
sportful form ; all we ask, is-lhe opportunity of rc

make pint culailv acceptable to the farming com j
miinily. This department will he handsoimly il- ,
lustrated with cute of agricultural implements, 1
when they can he procured, and it is'licliovcd it

Nor will the claims of polite J iteratuhe pass
unlo-cdcd. We are not unmindful ol Ihe variety
of tastes for which we shall have locator in this de

dry and lornanco.of anecdote, humor and foil, to I
