I THE PRESIDENTIAL YEAR.
j TIIE LEADING AMERICAN NEWS
THE NEW YORK
TRI B U N E
I During the coming Presidential year The Tribune
will be it more effective agency tlian ever for telling
! the newH 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 Hall. Against that danger it sought to
rally the old party of Freedom and the Union. It
! 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 fit
| candidates the majority should put up against the
common foe. Since then the tide of disaster lias
been turned back; every doubtful state has been
won, and the omens for National victory 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 varuing
phases of the campaign now beginning. It will
earnestly strive that the party of Freedom, Union
and I'ublie Faith may select the man surest to win,
and surest to make a good President. But in this
crisis it can conceive of no nomination this party
could make that would not be preferable to the best
that could possibly be supported by the riolid 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 circulation among the bent
peo/ile. 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 the highest progress, favoring the freeest
discussion*, hearing all sfdys, appealing always to
the best intelligence and the purest morality, 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 all the news. It lias 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 the best. Its commercial and financial news is
the most exact Its type is the largest; and its ar
rangement the most systematic.
THE HEM I-WEEKLY TRIBUNE
is by far the most successful Semi-Weekly in the
country, having fonr 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 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
for binding, •
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 ail the news of the
week into more readable shape. Its agricnlturai de
purtracnt is more carefully conducted than ever, and
it lias always been considered the best. Its market
reports arc the official standard for the Dairymen's
Association, and have long been recognized author
ity on cattle, grain and general country produce.
There are Special departments for the young and for
household interests; the new handiwork department
already extremely popular, gives unusually accurate
aud comprehensive instructions in knitting, crochet
ing, and kindrid 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
facilitias enable us to reduce the rates to the lowest
point we have ever touched, and to ofier the most
amazing premiums yet given, as follows:
