It is not the intention of the Publishers to have their issues simply partisan. We have called them "Democratic," but strictly speaking, if good wordshad not often had been used for bad purposes, our publications are American, with American ideas, American sentiments, and American principles, such as were entertained by the great men who founded our government."
