A Political Science Monthly Magazine.
THE REPUBLIC begins its seventh volume with the July number.
Its publishers are pleased to announce that it has grown steadily in public favor and that it is regarded by all good citizens who have consulted its pages as a power for good throughout the land.
Its past course—consistent, fearless, patriotic-is the index of its future. It will defend the right, denounce the wrong, and endeavor to point out, at all times, the true path for ali who love their country to follow.
A sentinel upon the watch-tower of free lom, it will be found at its post of duty to give the word of warning, and sound the alarm should any danger threaten the peace of the Nation.
It will favor the maintenance, by all legitimate means, of free schools, devoid of sectarian influences, and will oppose any attempt to divide the school funds, believing that such division, whether made in the interest of the Catholio Church or its opponents, will ultimately destroy the system of free education, and that civil and religious toleration on which our institutions rest.
It will do all within its power to develop true friendship between the citizens of the North and the South, and for this purpose will advocate the recognition of justice and equality before the law as the only means to secure lasting friendship and its two allies, peace and security.
The Presidential contest of 1876 will be one of the most important in our history. On its issue depends the future policy of the Government. The vital question to be answered by the people is, "Shall the party that proved imitinless in war be trusted in peace, and those who saved the country be set aside for those who endeavored to destroy it?"
On this question THE REPUBLIC will take its position at the head of the loyal column, and will do its best to keep the old flag flying until the voice of the people shall apnounce that Republicanism—the synonym of justice and liberty-has again triumphed over the enemies of good government.
THE REPUBLIC calls upon its friends to aid it in the great work of the present and future. It desires each subscriber to send in at least one additional name to help swell its ranks, and thus add to its power and activity. Is it asking too much-in consideration of the valuable material furnished the cause-to ask that our friends everywhere exert themselves to secure for Tue Republic as many new subscribers as possible?
To the Republican press of the country the magazine sends greeting and cheer. The signs of the times indicate a glorious victory in November. Let no effort be relaxed to make it complete and effective. Insist upon thorough organization, a personal canvass of all doubtful or close districts, the distribution of well-considered documents, and the practice of that vigilance which alone can secure success. If our brethren of the press will but do their duty as faithfully as in the past, victory will be certain.
For their generous confidence and warm support the publishers of The REPUBLIC return thanks, and hope in the future, as in the past, to deserve by well-doing the good-will so often expressed.
