Tn] want of such an organ of truly liberal
principla has been widely and deeply felt,
especially among Irishmen of advanced
opinions, and among the real friends of Irish
national independence, and of universal
liberty. By the corrupt, or incompetent, organs
of psrtim and "sects, the Irish people of this
country have, up to a very late period, been at
once misreprmentcd and misled. ‘It is time
that this was at an end ; and that the true ad-
vocatu of liberty to Ireland, and to s.ll men,
should come forward as the real representa-
tives of their race and nation, and make the
truth manifat to the entire intelligent world,
that, while we demand justice for ourselves,
we are ready and anxious to extend it to all
The men who are mainly interested in con-
ducting the present enterprise, have spent a
life of labor and sacrifice in the cause of coun-
try and liberty; and, so far from being weary
of their work, or relaxing in their eflbfts, they
are ready once more to enter the field of duty,
and if properly supported, to spgre neltber
labor nor expense, to do this most necessary’
work as it ought to be done, and carry this
noble cause to a suocwaful lssue. .
' There are millions of Irishmen who de-
mand liberty for their country-and there are
millions of Americans who sympathize with
them in their arduous struggle to se-
cure it. Now is the time for both to prove
themselves in earnest, by making THE Imsn
llnrunuo newspaper a power which will
eventually secure a real, actual, free, Repub-
lican government in Ireland.
Ifwe have friends who believe in this plat-
form, we call upon them to ya to work, at onw
and earnestly, to support us, by subscribing
themselves and inducing their friends and
neighbors to do likewise. For we are sorry
to say, that we have met deadly (secret) oppo-
sition from many who oughtito be our sup-
porters, but who are not yet able to bear the
light of ‘truth and liberty. The countless
legions of ignorance and slavery are our em.-
mies. “'3 are resolved that they shall be
always so; and that our work is, to rid of their
prescnos the world that they have cursed.

The American Press on the Irish Re-
Up to the present time, we have allowed
our paper to speak for itself. IVs believe we
are now justified in saying that it has exceeded
the hopes of its numerous friends, as well as
defeated the hatred of its enemies, and they
have neither been few nor idler To the one,
we present our cordial acknowledgments for
their kind confidence and earnest support;
to the other, we express an earnest hope that,
both in principle and practice, they may profit
by our instructions. ,
We print, to-day, a few, out of about 150,
notices which wehave received, almost every
one of which has been so favorable and flatter-
ing, that we are almost ashamed to publish so
much that may be looked upon as a laudation
of ourselves. But it is necessary that all
should distinctly know what is the exact
estimation in which the first really liberal
Irish national paper, that ever was established
on this continent, is held by the American
public. . ,

‘ A rrnsr as-rs: Inrsn JOURNAL.-THE: Iarsn
Rneonuc, a journal devoted to the elevation
of the Irish race, and their liberation from
social and political thraldom, ably fills a posi-
tion in journalism long needed in this country.
We are happy to learn that the favor with
which it has been received by men of all
nationalities, and particularly ‘by those to
whose interests it is devoted, has already in-
sured its permanent success. Its motto, “ In-
dependent in all things, neutral in none,” is a.
just index of its general character; while its
motto, “Liberty-llcr Friends our Friend
her Enemies our Enexnies," is a faithful index
of its political course. ts editorial columns
give evidence ofcxperience, talent, and sbililv,
far exceeding any other Irish journal. It
earnestly an ably advocates for all men the
same inde ndonce and political rights it
claims fort c Irish people. While its avowed
, main object is the liberation of the Irish race 586
from English tyranny, it does not fail to ive
the most wholesome and profitable counse to
the Irish as Aniericnn citizens, urging them to
be faithful to the principlm of freedom, con-
sistent in promoting the true interests of this
Republic as the best friend of their own coun-
try s.n consistent in acknowledging the
rights of all men. It advocates the protection
of American industry from the aggressions of
British pauper labor and the emanci atiou of
labor from the insolcnt dictation 0 ca ital.
Its columns are open for the fullest and rs-est
A uscussion of all national questions, and this
it earnestly courts. Such an Irish paper can
only be productive of great good, and as a
lever for ifting up the Irish people its power
is invalua e.
Such ajournal has been long needed, and
we cordially welcome TIIE lrusu Bartnuc
to the ranks of 'ournalism.

It has transformed a large class of Irishmen

papers heretofore ublislied. Those papers
are far behind the rising generation of ouug
