Aug. 17, 1837, , , PROPOSALS For publishing in the town of Ripley JIUrisrippii i a Weekly Newspaper to be entiikd , Ripley Transcript, ' ":: BY James B. Walker. ,0m entering the political arena, as a journalist the proprietor is aware that he will have many ob stacles to encounter, growing out of the difficulties ncident to the settlement of a new country, as well aa that of party diseentions; the former we expect to be able to surmount by industry and persever ance, the latter may, without much liberality on the part of the people, render the efforts of the Editor to be useful, entirely unavailing. We will nevertheless, enter upon the undertaking, and en deavor where we cannot, please, at least not to offend; the promotion of the public, as well as our own interest being our object, and 'the interest of the. West generally, wo have selected the Town of Ripley, as the theatre of our operations. All wc claim, and all we expect is a fair and honest sup port .in the labor of our profession, v - 'To furnish the,news of the day in the commercial and political world; to communicate information of the rapid and' extensive diffusion of knowledge to promote and uphold the interest of the farmer merchant and mechanic will be the leading ob ject. Opposed alike to party intolerance and secta rian bigotry, our aim will be, to warn the patriot of dangers which may threaten the country; to sug. gest such measures as may be thought best calcula ted to' advance the permanant interest of our new, but highly favored country. On the subject of political affairs, we shall stea dily oppose every association of individuals, under ! whatever name or disguise, whose object is to re strain, by party management, the full expression of unprejudiced sentiment; we shall advocate the cause of pure, unmixed democracy not that kind of democracy,- which teaches a blind and passive obediance to the dictates of party and partisan lea ders, without enquiring into the purity of their mo tives; but that which teaches the right and capa city of the people themselves, to nominate and choose their own rulers, and prescribe their own measures of government, unaided by directions, and uninfluenced by party leadres. We shall endeavor to bo temperate and respect ful towards political opponents, and to respect the character arid feelings of those who may differ with us in opinion either as to men or measures; we shall claim the right in a respectful manner, to crit icise the pretensions of such as offer their services to the public, we shall not deny this right to others; but we will not treat as enemies, and as unworthy of public confidence, such as differ with us in opin ion, and persip a high-minded and honorable course. --i: TERMS.

To which will be added, a com plete sectional Map of the State, showing the di visions, course of streams, and location of county seats in the ne'-v counties. : -1 The necesity of an annual volume like this, as a book of reference to every citizen engaged in bu sines s, as well as to travellers and speculators, will be apparent to all. It is needed to devellope tho resourced of the State; to give useful informs tion to the emigrant, and to embody, in an acces Bible compass, such valuable statistics as can be obtained from no other source. Laying aside tho considerations of utility, the feeling of St ate pride would be a sufficient motive to sustain a publication so well calculated to show at view, the population, agricultural wealth, and almost bou'ndless resources of the State. The an nual publication ofthe Register (the continuation of which depends upon the patronage thei first year) will give the publisher ample opportun.ty to keep up with the improvements of the State and make his volumes the annual records ofthe ad vance of socioty in mercantile pursuits, in the arts in education, and all that embellishes life. . Tho publisher has been at the expense of send ing an agent into every county in the State to ob tain accurate statistics on which he could reley He has also made arrangements to have the State map lor the Register engraved by a distinguished artist in an eastern city. He has only to look to a generous public for reimbursement of these hea vy expenses, and for sufficient patronage to make it an object to continue the publication in future. but, at the same time, he would scorn to ask any favor that may not be fully earned by the intrinsic merit and value ot the Register. He commends his enterprise to all classes of his fellow citizens, to Judges, County Clerks, Regis' ters, and state ofneers who may have valuable in formation for such a compilation, and whose inter est it may be to communicate the same for publi cation. ; ': . i , jtu maner ior compilation wuicntnose wiio are desirous of forwarding the enterprise may furnish, should be transmitted previiiUB to the first day ef iovemoer next.
