For reviving, in the town of Northumbers
land, the weekly Neewspafier
AS several presses nave recently been
established at no great distance, the present
may be deemed an inauspiciodis moment for
the resuscitation of the Argus. This ob-
jection is much reduced if uot entirely ob-
viated, in the editors mind, by considerin
that, ene of these papers has announced its
mended departure for Danviiie, and ano-
ther disclaiming any attachment to either of
the parties, which divide the nation. Under
this aspect, if the editor succeeds, in estab
lishing a press to which the republicans of
Northumberiand, Columbia and Uliiion, can
again resort with a warm heart, and a just
coufidence, he will realise ali his expectas
tions. f ;
The revival of the Argus virtually im-
plics ‘an adoption of the same political cha-
Pactely and an attachment to the same poli-
tical principles, which distinguished its for-
mer existance. ——ilaving purchased Mr.
Huston’s' establishment, the editor desires
his inténsions may be distinctly understond,
and will pot merely pledge himself by im-
plication. As democratic republicanism has
been dear to him from infancy, 80 his veie-
ration for its principles he never will rein.
yuish while intellect hoids its scat,
The editor has no hesitation in avowing
his poiitical character. The Argus never
was, nor will He ever render it $any. this...
Cer UUTHITE CT TUB at ie will never wrolig any
mam, or any party; nor will he ever wilful.
ly offend the majesty of truth. The sancs
tuary of domestic peace shall not be bros
ken; nor shall private reputation be the
sport of maliguity, or the
revenge. a
The times require’ the most decisive ens
ergy in the government, and the firmest
union among the people—to promote these
will be a primary object of the editor. But
all attempts to consolidate our sovereign re-
publics, or to disever the confederation, Le
holds in utter abhorrence. The state of our
country arrests the solicitude of the patriot,
while the situation of the world excites tye
commiseration of the philanthropist. The
desolation of a wide spreading war destroys
the lives of the whole human race; from tue
old world to the new extends its ravages,
with aggravations of brutality and barbarity,
unknown to civilized nations. Que country
has been reluctaikly compelled io draw the
sword in defence ot that indepengence so
gloriously wrested from British tyranny. —
United America has unfoided the vanners
of justice and solemnly determined to de-
fend the laws of nature and nations, and the
rights of persecuted humanity. Freemen
will never shrink from the defence of a
cause so precious, of priucipies 80 condu«
cive to the happiness of man To support
this cause, to advocate these principics, snall
be the primary duty of the editor,
The local concerns of Northumberland,
Columbia, Union, and the adjoinig counties
shall receive particular attention. Lie cab-
liest information shall be given respecting
the interesting affairs of the state and the
union ; and, especially, concerning the proa
gress of the war. Legislative proceedings
shall be diligently obtained and communi-
cated. The cHusions of wit shall not be ex=
cluded, and the muses shali be wooed with
unabated fervor.
The Argus, will'be published every Sa.
turday morning, on paper of a good quality
and printed with a good type—~The first
number to appear as soon as 400 subscri-
bers are obtained. ;
‘The price will be two dollars per annum,
exclusive of postage—one haif to be paid on
delivery of the first number and the remain.
der in six months.
No subscription will be received for less
than one year; nor any person discontinue
until all arrearages are paid:
