paper of 1 870, is designed to meet a public
want of the business men and of the interests of
the-eounty. The time has come when almost
every county find.; it indispensable lo have a
-i.klis. i,urnnl i.f ita nirn In ri rfut-n I itwt tiitrr-
euls in the various utl'tirs of business, local and !
general. There is no county in the Slate that
would not be greatly benefited by a journal
within iu bound., especially devoted to the pro
motion of the local interests of the community,
Such a paper appeals very troiijly to the par
tiality and pride of the Meet ion it serves; and
every citizen should tfive il his countenance
and support it liberally, nt a means ol increas
ing its usefulness and extending its influence at
home and abroad. The stronger, il becomes
the more beneficial it will prove; and as the
money required for its, support is far less than
the material nood it does, it is the best invest
ment any county can make.
The Record will of necessity take part in
the politics of the country. If it is the duty ol
every man to keep himself well informed in
respect to public alliiirs, and to take a decided,
and manly part therein, it is especially the
duty of the editor of a newspajier faithfully
to investigate all questions of public concern,
and yive to his readeis the facts of the satire.
The undersigned pledges himself to be Irue in
this regard, lie will not knowingly deceive
his readers for the sake of party or anything
else; but by laying before them the facts, as he
may enabled to obtain them, will endeavor to
aid all to act wisely for the general good. As
political matters now stand, his personal con
victions are most decidedly in accord with the
views and feelings of the Democratic ('onserva'
tivepnrty. lie believes that the efforts of this
parly in 187G wrenched from the grasp of tyr
ants and corruptionists in high places (he civil
liberty that we now enjoy. He regards ihat
great victorv as second only to that gained bv
the fathers of 1770. The danger was immi
nent, the constant tendency fatal, but the cour
age, wisdom and devotion of the Conservative
party proved itself equal to the occasion, and
gloriously rescued 1 he imperiled liberties of
the people. While lhat party shall continue
more pure anil truly patriotic than any other,
he intends to be fully identified wilh il.
Rut the main design of The Record is to serve
the county of Davidson in all the ways it may
be possible to advance her interests and pro
mote the welfare of her people. And to this
end the undersigned desires such intimate re
lations with her citizens as shall enable him .0
perform his duty efficiently.
The paper will be published weekly at $1 a
yea r in advance. It will be small, but neatly
printed on new tvpe; and the proprietor hopes
Xa make up in quality what may be lacking in
ize. The first number will appear about the
first 'week in January, 1878.
