" THE LEADING AMERICAN NEWS
THE NEW YORK 1
During the coming Pi evidential year The Tribune
will be a more effective agency than ever for telling 1
the news best worth knowing, and for enforcing
sound politics. From the day the war closed it lias 1
been most anxious for an end of sectional strife. >
But it saw two years ago, and was the first persist- i
entiy to Proclaim the new danger to the country 1
from the revived alliance of the Solid South and I
Tammany Ilall. Against that danger it sought to i
rally the old party of Freedom and the Union. It 1
began by demanding the abandonment of personal <
dislikes, and 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 the tide of disaster has
been turned back; every doubtful state has been
won, and the omens for National victory were never 1
more cheering. 1
TIIE TRIBUNE'S POSITION. J
Of The Tribune's share in all this, those speak i
most enthusiastically who have seen most of tile s
struggle. It will faithfully portray the earning v
phases of the 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 ifi this
crisis it can conceive of no nomination this party .
could make that would not hi- preferable to the best '
that eould possibly he 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 has '
enjoyed of the largest circulation among the best
people. It secured, and means to retain it, by be
coming the medium of the best thought and the
voice of the best conscience of the time, by keeping ,
abreast of tlie highest progress, favoring the ireeest
discussions, hearing all sides, appealing always to
the best intelligence and the purest moraiity, and re
fusing to carter to the tastes of the vile or the preju
dices of the ignorant.
The distinctive features of The Tribune are known
to everybody. It gives ail 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 it* own between its office and j
Washington. Its scientific, literary, artistic and re- |
ligious intelligence is the fullest. Its book review*
are the best. Its commercial and financial news is
the most exact its type is the largest; and its ar
rangement the most systematic.
THE SEMI-WEEKI.Y 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
readers too far from Now York to depend on our
paper* for the daily news, who nevertheless want
the iditorials, correspondence, b'.ok leviews, scien
tific matter, lectures, literary miseellaney, etc,, for
which 'I hi 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
population, and lias the largest circulation of any
Weekly issued from the office of a Daily paper in
New York, or, so far as we know, in the United
States. It revises and condenses all tile news of the
week into more readable shape. Its agricultural tie
partment is more can fully conducted tlian ever, and
it has always been considered the best. Its market
reports are the official standard for tlie Dairymen's
Association, and have long been recognized author
ity on cattle, grain and general country produce.
There are special departments for tlie young and for
household interests; the new handiwork department
already extremely popular, gives unusually accurate
and comprehensive instructions in knitting, crochet
-1 ing, and kiiulritl subjects; while poetry, fiction and
j 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
facilitias enable us to reduce the rates to the lowest
point we have ever touched, and to otier the most
j amazing premiums yet given, as follows :
