PROSPECTUS OF THE GALVESTON
On Saturday the 6th of January next the publication of a
weekly paper will be commenced by the undersigned enti-
tled The Galveston Weekly News devoted to Politics Lite-
rature Foreign and Domestic Intelligence Commercial Af-
fairs and the General News of the Day.
It will be published in conjunction with the Tri-Weekly
Evening News under the management of R. D. Sebring Edit '
whose entire attention rhall be devoted to render the columns
of the Weekly News UMjf'M and interesting to every class ol
readers. A marked degree of respeel and attention shall at all
limes be paid i the communications of experienced correspon
ueiits v."11- wuuuoic am n a nuinuer oi wnicn nas ueeu uncauj
secured) and every exertion used to adopt and pursue such a
course as sjall be best calculated to redeem the commercial
character of our country to elevate the character of our na-
tional literature and to sustain the character of our nationa.
In politics the News will be independent pledged to none
open iu an; icserviiig 10 iiseu ine rig Hi to praise or censure iuc
measures of those who are in power or the pretentions of those
who may aspire to it jut as they may be considered calcula-
caio lesiiit in me goou or evil ol ihe country.
In relation to Ihe measures of the present administration it
is contci.ded that they have not been the best that could have
been adopted for the interest and welfare of the country and
that those in pove have either through ignorance or willful-
ntss. trifled with the important trusts reposed in them by the
people ah earnest ana unitincning support shall De given to
tin claims ol justice of those who it is beleived have been ma-
liciously an ' leeply injured by the highhanded and unlawful
proceedings ol the present Executive.
A prominent leature in the political piinciples of the News
will be the advocacy of the expediency and necessity of keep
ing in repair and in a seaworthy condition ihe vessels of our
navy while ihe affairs of the country remain in therr present
unsettled condition. It has been satislactoriiy demonstrated
that with our navy we are able to contend successlully with
any force that our enemy can bring against us whereas with-
ont a navy we would be entirely at their mercy.
The Literary department ol ihe News shall n t be found in
feriorto that of any paper published in the country; a prefer-
ence always being given lo original articles and the best en
deavors of its conductor used to cultivate a liberal taste for the
literary productions of our own authors.
A portion of each number will be devoted to ihe publication
ofacarcla ly compiled summary of foieign and domestic news

cal natPr. iw far more interesting to the public than any thing
el.se ilw editor w;U not lose sight of this department and will

and c.icral tmormaiion as will be deemed most interesting and
prontable to the reading community.
Arrangements have already been made to ensure thi receipt
ol a corre.-t anil impartial record ol the proceeding ol the ap-
proachinjr Congress and from the nature of the subjects thet
will engage the attention of the honorable body will in all
probability be ol he most important and vital interest.
In relation to matters pertaining more especialy to the city
its improvements itt. morals and rational amusements no el
forts shall be spared by its conductor to place the News on
such a footing as to make it a medium through which an a-
uiiiuni of this species of information shall be conveyed to the
public al least cq'tal lo thatol any ol llscotemporanes and in
a sbane auite a- .ractin? to the 'eader.
Accurate notices of the marke's will now and then be given
and a carc't"v prepared prices current will at all limes be
found in ihe News. A regularly corrected Bank Note Table
will also have a place in its columns.
The Nbws will be of medium size printed on fine paper and
