*Salutatory. The triumph of the Republicans of the Union, in the last Presidential campaign, was the first political event since Kansas received her Territorial baptism, auspicious of the justice due the political sentiments of her people. Her admission into the Union, and the restoration of the political rights of her citizens may be regarded as the legitimate fruits of that victory. After the fourth of March next, when the present corrupt, faithless and imbecile administration shall have ceased to exist, and the new administration, representing the principles and policy which animated and controlled the government in its earlier history, succeeds to the direction of public affairs, a confident expectation may be confidently indulged that Kansas will be the object of that generous regard which, up to this period, has been unreasonably and oppressively denied her....While it is the design of the publishers to make it an organ of the Republican party and a representative, as far as practicable, of the federal and state administrations, they are equally determined it shall be just to all parts of the American Union....Agriculture, the most important of the industrial pursuits of her people, and which must be the base,...will have a department in the Journal, presided over with care and discrimination. Literature, science, and art, the hand maids of civilization,...shall receive that measure of notice to which their intrinsic merits entitle them. The News department will be a leading feature of the Journal.
