" THE LEADING AMERICAN NEWS
THK NKW YORK
During tin; coming Presidential yr:r Tito Tribune
will bo a more effective agency than ever lor tolling
I the IH'wn host worth knowing, and for enforcing
sound politics. From tlie day the war closed it has j
j boon inost anxious for an end of sectional strife. j
Hut it saw two years ago, and was the first persist- j
i ently to Proclaim the new danger to the country !
; from the revived alliance or the Solid Bouth and j
' Tamtnanj Hall. Against that uanger it sought to I
rally the old party of Freedom :nd the Union. It j
j 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 j
: candidates the majority should put up against the I
common foe. Binco then the tide of disaster has ,
been turned back; every doubtful state lias been '
won, and the omens for National victory were never j
THK TRIBUNE'S POSITION.
Of The Tribujie's share in all this, those speak j
most enthusiastically who have seen most of the I
struggle. It will faithfully portray the varniug
phases of the campaign now beginning. It will
, earnestly strive that the party of Freedom, Union
1 and Public Faith may select the man surest to win, j
; and surest to make a good President. Hut in this i
! crisis it can conceive of no nomination tins party I
I could make that would not be preferable to the best
: that could possibly be supported by the Solid South
and Tammany Hall.
The Tribune is now spending much labor and
I money than ever before to hold the distinction it has
enjoyed of the largest circulation among the best \
■profile, 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 j
I abreast of the highest progress, favoring the freeest j
: discussions, hearing all sides, appealing always to j
| the best intelligence and the purest morality, and re- !
| fusing to carter to the tastes of the vile or the prcju
-1 dices of the ignorant.
si'KCl \l, FEATURES.
The distinctive features of The Tribune are known
Ito everybody. It gives all the news. It has the 1
best correspondents, and retains them from year to 1
| year, It is the only paper that maintains a special I
, telegraphic wire of its own between its olljee and 1
Washington Its scientific, literary, artistic and re
-1 ligioii* intelligence is the fullest. Its book reviews
are the la st. Its commercial and financial news is j
the most exact Its type is the largest; and its ur
j rangenicnt the most systematic.
TIIK SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE
is by far tlie most successful Semi-Weekly in the
I 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 New York to depend 011 our 1
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
j it contains sixteen pages, - and is In convenient form 1
THK WKKKLY TRIBUNE
j remains the great favorite of our substantial country j
population, and has the largest circulation of any j
: Weekly issued from the otliee of a I tally paper in |
I New York, or, so far as we know, in the United !
• States. It revises and condenses all the news of the '
| week into more readable shape. Its agricultural de |
partmcnt is more carefully conduct) d than ever, and
!it lias always been considered the best, its market
| reports are the official standard for the Uairytnen's :
Association, and have long been recognized author j
ity on cattle, grain and general country produce. \
There are special departments for the young and for
i household interests; the new handiwork department j
j already extremely popular, gives unusually accurate |
and comprehensive instructions in knitting, crochet- j
1 ing, and kindrid subjects; while poetry, fiction and i
1 the humors of the day are till 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 j
' faeilitias enabli us to reduce the rates to the lowest j
; point we have ever touched, and to otier the most 1
i amazing premiums yet given, as follows:
