CHICAGO, ILL* OUR PLATFORM. THE IRISHREPUBLIC: A JOURNAL DRVOTBD TO Liberty, Literature and Social Progress. It will be “ Independent in all things, Neutral ill nothing.” Thi Want of such an organ of truly liberal principles has Deem widely and deeply felt, especially among Irish men of'advanced opinions, and among the real friends of Irish national Independence, and of universal liberty. By the corrupt, or incompetent, organs of parties and sects, the Irish people of this coentry have, up to a vtry late pe>1 >d, been at once misrepresented and misled. It Is time hat this was at an end; and that the true advo cates of liberty to Ireland, and to all men, should come forwar< as the real representatives of their race and na tion, ard make the truth manifest to the entire intelli gent world, that, while we demand justice for ourselves, we are 'eady and anxious to extend it to all others. The Men who are mainly in terested In conducting the present enterprise, have spent a life of labor and sacrifice in the cause of country and liberty; and, s> far from being i eary of their work, or relaxing in their efforts, they arl ready once more to enter the field of duty, and if prop rly supported, to spare neither labor nor ex pense, ti do this most necessary work as it ought to be done, a d carry this noble cause to a successful issue. There are millions of Irishmen who demand liberty for their country—and there are millions of Americans who sympathise with them In their arduous struggle to secure It. No t is the time for both to prove themselves In ear nest, by making the Ibish Republic newspaper a power which * ill eventually secure a real, actual, free, Repub lican government in Ireland. If we have Meads who believe in this platform, we call upon th_ m to go to work, at once and earnestly, to sup port us y Subscribing themselves and Inducing their mends and neighbors to do likewise. For we are sorry to say, that we have met ueauij «t> .Pro.i»i«« from many who ought to be our supporters, but who are not yet able to bear the light of truth and liberty. The counties* legions of ignorance and slavery are our ene mies. We are resolved that they shall be always so; and tha' our work is to rid of their presence the world that the. have cursed.
