p-OR THE PRESIDENTIAL YEAR.
" TIIE' LEADING AMERICAN NEWS
THE NEW YORK
During the coming Presidential year The Tribune
will be a more effective agency than ever for telling
the news best worth knowing, and for enforcing
sound polities. From the day the war closed it has
Been most anxious for an end of sectional strife.
But it saw two years ago, and was the first persist
ently to Proclaim the new danger to the country
from the revived alliance of the Solid South and
Tammany Ilall. Against that danger it sought to
rally the old party of Freedom and the Union. It
began by demanding the abandonment of personal
, dislikes, anil set the example. It called for an end
to attacks upon each other instead of the enemy;
and for the heartiest agreement upon whatever tit
candidates the majority should put up against the
common foe. Since then tin- tide of disaster lias
been turned back; every doubtful state lias been
won, ahd the omens for National \ictory were never
THE TRIBUNE'S POSITION.
Of The Tribune's share in all this, those speak
most enthusiastically who have seen most of the
struggle. It will faithfully portray the varning
phases of tlie campaign now beginning. It will
earnestly strive that the party of Freedom, Union
and Public Faith may select the man surest to win,
and surest to make a good President. But in this
crisis i! can conceive of no nomination this party
could inake that would not lie preferable to the best
that could possibly be supported by the Solid South
and Tammany Hall.
The Tribune is now spending much labor and
money than ever before to hold the distinction it lias
enjoyed of the largest (ircitlation among the bent
people. It secured, and means to retain it, by be
coming the medium of the best thought and the
i voice of the best conscience of tlie time, by keeping
abreast of the highest progress, favoring the freeest
discussions, hearing ail sides, appealing always to
the best intelligence and tlie purest morality, and re
fusing to carter to the tastes of the vile or the preju
dices of the ignorant.
I he distinctive features of The Tribune are known
to everybody. It gives all the news. It has the
best correspondents, and retains them from year to
year, It is the only paper that maintains a special
telegraphic wire of its own between its office and
Washington. Its scientific, literary, artistic and re
ligious intelligence is the fullest. ' Its book reviews
are tlie best. Its commercial and Hnam-ial news is
tlu-most exact its type is tlie largest; and its ar
langiment tiie most systematic.
THE SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE
is by far the most successful Semi-Weekly in the
country, having four times the circulation of any
other in New York, it is especially adapted to the
large class of intelligent, professional or business'
leaders too far from New York to depend on our
papers for the daily news, who nevertheless want
the editorials, correspondence, book reviews, scien
tific matter, lectures, literary miscellaney, etc,, for
which The Tribune is famous. Like The Weekly
it contains sixteen pages, and is in convenient form
THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE
remains the great favorite of our substantial country
I population, and bus the largest circulation of any
| Weekly issued from the office of a Daily paper in
I New York, or, so far as we know, in the United
States, it revises and condenses all tlie news of tlie
wei k into more readable shape. Its agricultural de
partmcnt is more carefully conducted than ever,and
it has always been considered the best. Its market
reports are the official standard for the Dairymen's
Association, and have long been recognized author
I ity on cattle, grain and general country produce.
There are special departments for tin- young and for
household interests; the new handiwork department
i already extremely popular, gives unusually accurate
and comprehensive instructions in knitting, crochet
ing, and kind rid subjects; while poetry, fiction and
the humors of the day are all abundantly supplied.
The verdict of the tens of thousand old readers who
have returned to it during the past year is that they
find it better than ever. Increasing patronage and
faeiiitias enable us to reduce the rates to the lowest
point we have ever touched, and to oticr the most
amazing premiums yet given, as follows :
