This is my ".emacs" file

My emacs version 24.3. I have installed "haskell-mode" and "erlang" from  . All I have done is do according to the website.

(require 'package)
(add-to-list 'package-archives 
    '("marmalade" .

1.  However, when I start it, I get 

An error has occurred while loading `/Users/eccstartup/.emacs':

File error: Cannot open load file, package

To ensure normal operation, you should investigate and remove the
cause of the error in your initialization file.  Start Emacs with
the `--debug-init' option to view a complete error backtrace.

2.  Well, I typed "emacs --debug-init" in the terminal, I get

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (file-error "Cannot open load file" "package")
  eval-buffer(#<buffer  *load*> nil "/Users/eccstartup/.emacs" nil t)  ; 
Reading at buffer position 19
"/Users/eccstartup/.emacs" t t)
  load("~/.emacs" t t)
  #[nil "^H\205\276^@   \306=\203^Q^@\307^H\310Q\202A^@ 

3.  So, What is the problem?

Should I download a package.el from ?

Thanks, I tried to make it readable.
