THE COMHOXWEALTU. Prospectus for One year ao the CjM.MoswtAi.TU ispued a declaration of its and prBrosEs. This declaration embodied briefly the expression of a determination to stand by the Republican party; of a belief in "honest money" as distinguishable from an irredeemable paper currcnc3 nnd of a general conviction that the first duty of a newspaper is to TELL TUE SEWS, and of a Kansas newspaper to give Kansas I news the precedence, A year has passed and has shown that the Republican party than ever, ne cessary for the preservation of LIBERTT A5D LAW in thia country. In regard to the financial question this, if no more, has been decided at the polls, that the peoj le are opposed to the wild theories of the inflationists. The course of the Commoxwealtu, us a i political journal, has been ABUKDASTLT 6CSTAISED.

An enlargement of the daily has been found necessary, and the circulation of the paper has steadily increased. In view of these circumstances, the Commonwealth has so new rOLICT to announce, but will adhere to the course marked out iu the past. Kansas news will continue to be a specialty, and the three departments of Items," "Kansas Farm ing, and "Kansas Churches," will be dilli-gcnily collated from cur State crchanges, while by free use of the telegraph and SPECIAL COKRESl'ON every event of general interest which trans. pires in the stato will be laid before our readers. In the files of the Commonwealth may be lound a nisToar or tub-state GovEajtsiEST in every department, executive, legislative and judicial.

The Syllabi of decisions of the supreme court are published in the Commosweallh by authority. Tho LEGISLATIVE RErGItTS will, during the coming session, be made.a heretofore, full and complete. The "Legis lative Summary," which was generally com mended and freely used by the press of th State last winter, wU be made a regula feature. In submitting this brief statement it is dosired that it be distinctly understood that the Commonwealth sets up no claim to be the "leading State paper," nor assumes to be the "organ" of any man or set of men, save the editors and proprietors. It bases its c'aims for support on its merits alone, and the attention of people who wish a Re publican paper published at the State Cap-J ital is respectfully solicited, tspeciai alien, tion is directed to the WEEKLY COMMONWEALTH, a forty ealunin paper, with few advertisements, and containing all the reading matter that appears in six issues of the daily.
