Fts f ame is abroad in the land, its articles are quoted by al! periodicals, and the paper is u fresh surprise and delight ia thousands of refined and cultivated homes. Though airead y bel ie ved to be iu most respecta one of the very beat Journal issued, the publishers are constiintly making iuoproveiuents and endeavoring to malee the Kbkk Prkbb still more worthy of public approbatiou. The Frkk Prkss will candidly and fearlesaly discusa all queatlons which may arise. Planted firmly on the platform of braad and liberal Democracy, it will to the ftill extent of its ability, uphold and advance fhoae fundamental principies of Democracy which it believes are the basis of free government, and will give a hearty support to the party niaintaining them. It will in all cases addrossits appeals to the judgment and reason of men, believing that the cause it espouses rests in truth and justice, and ihat the triumph of that cause and the asceudancy of the Democratie partv are for the best. interest of the country. It will labor unceasingly for local self-government in every State, for honesty and economy in the general admiimtratiou, for the reform of abuses, and for a scrupulous regard for the will of the people as constltutionally and legally expressed. It is of the highest iiuportance that the Democracy of the country should have utterance through journals qualified to give it voice ; and Tuk 1'rkk Press, which ia unquestionably accorded a foremost place among the leading Democratie papers Ín the land, can be depended upoo to work unceasingly for the Right.
