tra„,Adin'the change orAdministratins
lit is a custom, and indeed anecessity, foi e the
~ ...,Rear man to give his coustitue4ts some idea,
no matter ,how general, of the course:he intends
. to pursue, bo it is expected of one who takes
'upon himself the responsibity of conducting a
public journal—rand both for the same reason.
The influence ofanl i tlclrainistratiort can change
the whole policy acid feeling of a nation ; and,
knoWing this, tire' people ,claim it as a right
tho - they . shoulfibe - appeseil . at its comr9lnce
'meta of the coui se. to be pursued, in ordV that
they. may bettiir understand the printlpfes
upon which futre acts will be hued. if This
is right. The jogrial, although of less im
portance, hai a great influence, in the forming
"of opinions, for it is upon intelligence received
through it' that people base their opinions.
Feeling this to be the ease, we have - thought
it well to given slight indication of the gen
eral principles that shall controkk it, retaining -
'the right of expressing our apPl‘oval or dis
approllal of any act, measure or policy of any
party, clique or. club,lind of persons so far a 3
their course affFet thi , people
As regards party, we are epublican—un
compromisingly so—and thos who know what
Republicanism means need no further expos 6
of the principles to be supported by the Joule-
NAL. Although; at the present time, there is
not so much 'need for,the' - drawing of dividing:
]tries. yet it is always policy never to forsak'e,
for a Inzment, adherence to principles which
we believe are founded upon truth and justice,
and,to have no affiliation' with men or prindi
ples that are l oppositc—avoiding the doing of
evilhitt good may result.
r Being a stranger jiq the -place, we have no
persnal or local prejUdices, no cause for re
kenge upon any onc,"and shall not attempt to
influence the vote of any man from personal
considerations, but shall always do that which
will best serve to advance the principles of the
Bepublican'party. '
—Republicans of Potter, We desire your to'-
ope i ration inithe work - of putting into the hands
of every man .in the county a copy of the
Joun'kxt: "Little Potter" came up nobly to
vindicate her appreciation of Republican prin
elides at the last - election, and we desire to'
. have 4 always thus. But, difrinithe peculiar
excitements now raging, papers, who have
given to those affected by love forA.S.outhern
rights" all the,aid and comfort poSsible, wilt
make-use of Elie vilest means to embitter the
people against the'ruling men; and, RS they
represent the principles of the " Fhb Union
Party," !those principles will. suffer if there i 3
not some counteracting inhuence, or some
clianrml open' through which! people Mai learn
the truth. . •
Fellow-Republicans, what will-you do for
the cause? You claim to love the principles

—lt is a custom for Editors to promise mneh
id the beginning, we will be more moderate,
and perhaps; as you are generally disappoint
ed one wafer the other, we may he able to
tlisappeint yon in au agreeable Manner. * We
'will endeavor to select good articles for every
'department interesting to our readers, git-e
them a synopsis of everything of -iMportanee
or interest that t may transpire, and in fine
Five all that can reasonably be expected of a

,with witbm he is unacquainted and never ex

causes subscribers to think that it Is not so

- income is, in a. great measure iderived froth
'these small 'amounts, and 'unless he receives
them he must •Gease to pUblis.h.
