THE TRIBUNE was first issued as a Daily
on the loth of April, 1841. Its Weekly
edition was commenced in September of the
< jsiiit; year; its Semi-Weekly in May, 1845. It
; was t: e tirat daily in America to issue a
! double or eight-page sheet at a low price, and
it has kept at least even with the fwremust of
its rivals in the rapid expaueiouef Newspaper
enterprize, which the great extension of Rail
roads. aud the establishment ot the Telegraph
system have crowded into these last sixteen
eventful years. No larger journal is att'orded
at so low a price in any quarter of ttie world ;
none in America, no matter at what price is
sued, pays an equal amount, weekly or month
ly, for intellectual labor. It employs corres
pondents regularly iu the leadiug capitals of
Europe, and at the most important points on
this continent, with a liberal staff of writers
and reporters at home, regarding full, early
and accurate information a 3 the first object of
a Newspaper, and the timely and thorough
elucidation thereof as the chief end of its Edi
torials. In that spirit, THE TRIBUNE has
been and will be conducted extending and
perfecting its correspondence so fast as the
increase of its patronage will justify the ex- j
peuse. Should the current attempt to connect
the Old with the New World by the magnetic;
wire prove successful, we shall very soon, at a 1
heavy cost to ourselves, aud, we trust, a cor- j
responding advantage to our readers, publish
each morning a synopsis of the preceding
day's occurrences throughout Europe, North- J
ern Africa, and Western Asia, with regular
reports of the markets, the monetary aspects
and harvest prospects of hither Europe. With i
a good atlas beside him, and his daily paper 1
on his fireside table, the American farmer or I
artisan within a day's ride of the cily may j
theu study each evening the doings of the
civilized world throughout the day preceding;
and it seems hardly possible that any man
who can read, but especially one who has
children to educata will longer deny himself
the pleasure and profit of a daily journal.
The same is true measurably of those who
| live further inland; though, where mails are
! infrequent, a Semi-Weekly, or even a Weekly |
paper, may seem sufficient.
THE TRIBUNE deals with questions of Po- 1
liticai Economy, Public Policy, Ethics, Mate
ria Progress, and whatever may alFect the In
tellectual, Moral, Social aud Physical well
being ot mankind, dogmatic Theology alone
excepted. Its leading idea is the houoring of
honest, useful work in whatever sphere or
capacity, aud the cousequeut elevation of the
Laboring Class in knowledge, virtue and gen
eral esteem. It is necessarily hostile to
i Slavery under all its aspects, to Intemperance
in whatever form or degree with its accesso
ries, to War, save in the defense of Country
and Liberty against actual invasion, and to
every form of Gambling. Desiring to see!
Production extended and encouraged, while :
wild Speculation and useless Traffic are cur- i
tailed, it favors the policy of sustaining and
diversifying Home Industry by a discrimiua- j
ting Tariff—a policy which tends to increase!
the price of Grain to the farmer while dimin
ishing that of Bread to the artisan, by redu
cing the distance across which their respective
products are exchanged, and, of course, redu
cing the cost of their transfer. Regarding i
Filibusterism in all its phases, and every form i
and device of National covetousness, with un- <
i qualified abhorrence, as the bane of Republics j
and in their triumph the grave of Equal
Human Rights ; we seek by every means to i
woo aud win the attention of our countrymen
• from projects of aggrandizement abroad to en
terprifs of development aud beneficence at
home, foremost among which we rank a Rail
road through the heart of our territory to con
nect the waters of the Atlantic with those of
the Pacific. Relifrine that the goods of this
life are not yet fairly distributed, and that no
one ready to work should *ver famish in un
. willing idleness, it lends an open ear to every
suggestion of Social improvement which does
, nut countervail the dictates of eternal Morality
ncr war upon that natural right of every one
r i whatsoever he has fairly produced or hun
| estly acquired, whose denial must sink man
; kind iuto th' chaos and night of barbarism
and universal squalor. With a profound con
i iciousae3s that idlers, drunkards, libertiues
md profligates can never be other (ia the
main) than needy and bears aloft
the great truth that Prevention is better than
Punishment —that thr child trained up in the
way he should go, will rarely in after years
desert that way for the thorny paths of Vice
md Crime —that a true Education—Religious
Moral and industrial a3 well as Intellectual—
is the inost effective temporal antidote to the
errors and woes of our race. Recognizing in
the most degraded specimen of Humanity a
divine spark which should be reverently
cherished, not ruthlessly trodden out, we have
charity for all forms of evil but these which
seek personal advantage through the debase
ment of our fellow-beings. The champion of
no class or caste, the devotee of no sect, we
would fain be the interpreter to each other of
general concord between Labor and Capital,
and among those whom circumstances or mis
apprehension have thrown into unnatural an
tagonism. A coteinporary once observed that
he never knew a hard, grasping, niggardly
employer, who did not bate THE TRIBUNE,
nor a generous, large-souled, kindly one, will
-1 ing to live and let live, who did not like it.
We ask no higher praise, no warmer attesta
The circulation of THE TRIBUNE is at this
time as follows: Daily 32,000 copies;
Weekly, l?6,SOO copies; Semi-Weekly, I
IG.OOO copies; California and European,
G.OOO copies; Total 230,800 copies.
That of the Semi-Weekly and Weekly we be
lieve to be exceeded by no other newspaper
published in the world ; that of the Daily
falls behind that of souie of our cotempora
ries. Had our hostility to Human Slavery
and the Liquor Traffic been more guarded aud !
politic, our Daily issues would now be some j
thousands heavier and our Advertising far
more lucrative ; but of our patronage gener
ally we have no reason, no wish to complain.
Of late, a concerted effort has been made to
diminish onr rural circulation through the in
fluence of the Postmasters some of whom em
bark in it eagerly, others under political con
straint; while a large nnruber, we are happy
for the sake of Human Nature to state, refuse
to be dragooned into it at all. Still, we have
been made to feel the heavy hand of Power,
and have doubtless lost thousands of subscri
bers iu consequence. Pretexts to which no in
dividual in his private capacity would have
stooped have been relied on to justify the
stoppage of our papers within reach of their
subscribers and rightful owners, aud their re
tention iu the Post-office till their value was
destroyed. Postmasters have been schooled
by rival journals—several of them living ou
their self-proclaimed ability to serve as an
antidote to THE TRIBUNE—as to their po
litical duty to promote at our expense the
dissemination of gazettes of adverse politics.
We shall outlive this warfare, but we do not
affect indifference to it. In the open field of
discussion we fear nothing; but in the tens
of thousands of rural neighborhoods where
the Postmaster can induce many of his quiet
neighbors to take the journal he recommends,
we have already lost some patrons, and ex
pect to lose more as onr subscriptions for this
year expire. We appeal, therefore, to the
hearty, faithful, fearless advocates of Free
Labor and Free Soil throughout the laud to
take care that this official warfare on our cir- j
culation be not prosecuted without counter- I
action. We employ no traveling agents, for
we will not consent to have the public har
assed with the solicitations of strangers in
our behalf. We strike the name of each sub
scriber to our Weekly or Semi-Weekly from
our books so soon as bis term has expired, for
we will not haunt our patrons with duns for
arrears which they may say they never in
tended to incur, for papers which perhaps
they never read ; we rely for the renewal of
our club subscriptions solely on the volun
teered efforts of those who, liking our paper,
believe its influence salu ary and worthy to be
extended ; and thus far our reliance has been
justified, as we trust it may continue to be.

11THICH conveys the remedies to the cavi
v V ties in the lung ; through the air passa
ges, and coming in direct contact with the
disease, neutralises the tubercular matter, al
lays the cough, causes a free aud easy expec
toration, heals the lungs, purilies the blood,
imparts renewed vitality to the nervous system,
giving that tone and energy so indispensable
for the restoration of health. To be able to
state confidently that Consumption is curable
by inhalation, is to me a source of unalloyed
pleasure. It is as much under the control of
medical treatment as any other formidable
disease; ninety out of every hundred cases
can be cured in the first stages, aud fifty per
cent, in the second; but in the third stage it
is impossible to save more than five per cent.,
for the Lungs are so cut up by the disease as
to bid defiance to medical skill. Even, how
ever, in the last stages, Inhalation affords ex
traordinary relief to the suffering attending
this fearful scourge, which annually destroys
ninety-five thousand persons in the United
States alone ; and a correct calculation shows
that of the present population of the earth,
eighty millions are destined to fill the Con
sumptive's graves.
Truly the quiver of death has no arrow so
fatal as Consumption. In all ages it has been
the great enemy of life, for it spares neither
age nor sex, but sweeps off alike the brave,
th beautiful, the graceful and the gifted. By
the help of that Supreme Being from whom
cometh every good and perfect gift, lam en
ahbled to offer to the afflicted a permanent j
and speedy cure iu Consumption. The first
cause of tubercles is from impure blood, ari I
the immediate effect produced by their depo
sition iu the lungs is to prevent the free ad- j
mission of air into the air cells, which causes
a weakened vitality through the entire system.
Then surely it is more rational to expect great
er good from medicines entering the cavities
of the lungs than from those administered
through the stomach ; the patient will always
tind the lungs free and the breathing easy, af
ter Inhaling remedies. Thus, luhalation is a
local remedy, nevertheless it acts constitution
ally, and with more power and certaiuty than
remedies administered by the stomach. To
prove the powerful and direct influence of this
this mode of administration, chloroform
inhaled will entirely destroy sensibility in a
few minutes, paralyzing the entire nervous
system, so that a limb may be amputated with
out the slightest pain; Inhaling the ordinary
burning gas will destroy life in a few hours.
The inhalation of ammonia will rouse the
system when tainting or apparently dead. The
odor of many of the medicines is perceptible
in the skin a few minutes after being inhaled,
and may be immediately detected in the blood.
A convincing proof of the constitutional effects
of inhalation, is the fact that sickness is al
ways produced by breathing foul air—is not
this positive evidence that proper remedies,
carefully prepared and judiciously admiuis
j tered through the lungs should produce the
happiest results? During eighteen years'
practice, many thousands suffering from dis
eases of the lungs and throat, have beeii un
der iny care, aud 1 have effected many remark
able cures, even after the sufferers had been
pronounced in the last stages, which fully sat
isfies me that consumption is no longer a fatal
disease. My treatment of consumption is
original, and founded on long experience and
a thorough investigation. My perfect acquain
tance with the nature of tubercles, &c., ena
bles me to distinguish, readily, the various
forms of disease that simulate consumption,
and apply the proper remedies, rarely being
mistaken even in a single case. This famil
j iarity, in connection with certain pathological
and microscopic discoveries, enables me to re
' lieve the lungs from the effects of contracted
: chests, to enlarge the chest, purity the blood,
t impart to it renewed vitality, giving energy
| and tone to the entire system.
Medicines with full directions seut to any
part of the United States and Canadas by pa
tients communicating their symptoms by letter.
But the cure would be more certain if the
patient should pay me a visit, which would
give me an opportunity to examine the lungs
and enable me to prescribe with much greater
certainty, and then the cure could be effected
without my seeing the patient again.

All State and County Records should always
be printed or written on this Paper, as the
chemicals inserted in the pulp not only pre
vent erasure or transfer, but make it lasting
as time.
For Southern Climates it is excellent, and
much superior to any other ; as the moistnesw
ot the climate does not destroy it,—the prop
erties inserted in the pulp being a preventive.
In all the southern states, Cuba, tbe WeK
Indies and the Central American States, no
public records can be kept over 20 year#, writ
ten ou the ordinary paper, while the oils and
other chemicals inserted in this Paper makes
it indestructible by the ravages of time. Iti#
