The Pittsburgh Comet will be the organ of no party or clique, but will honestly endeavor to be the exponent of what its conductors believe to be the Spirit of Pittsburgh. It will deal frankly and in good humor with persons and with parties, endeavoring always to keep in view that moral element which transcends all persons and parties, and which alone makes the basis of a true and lasting prosperity. It will not rank itself with any sect of anties: but with that body of men and women which is in favor of Freedom, Harmony, Civic Progress, and Honor, whether public or private.
Cribbed in substantial portion from The Atlantic Monthly, h/t Andrew Sullivan.
