! " THE LEADING AMERICAN NEWS
. ♦ .
THE NEW YORK
TRIB U N E
During the coining Presidential year The Tribune
will he a more effective agency than ever for telling
the news best worth knowing, and for enforcing
sound politics. 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 lit
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
I more cheering.
THE TRIBUNE'S POSITION.
Of The Tribune's share In all this, those speak
i most enthusiastically who have seen most of the
I struggle. It will faithfully portray the varning
j phases of the campaign now beginning. It will
I earnestly strive that the party of Freedom, Union
i and Public baith may nclcct the man surest to win,
I and surest to make a good President. But in this
I crisis it can conceive of no nomination this party
could make that would not be preferable to the best
I that could possibly be supported by the Solid South
I and Tammany Hull.
Ihe 1 ribune is now spending much labor and
money than ever before to hold the distinction it has
enjoyed of the largest circulation among the bent
| peojßt. It secured, and means to retain it, by be-
I'RICE ONE CENT.
coming tln> 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
discussions, hearing ail sides, 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 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 aud
Washington. Its scientific, literary, artistic and re
ligious intelligence is the fullest. Its book reviews
I are the best. Its commercial and financial news is
j the most exact Its type is the largest; and its ar
j rangement the most systematic.
THE SEMI-WKKKI.Y TRIBUNK
! is by far the most successful Semi-Weekly in the
I country, having four times the circulation of any
i other in New York. It is especially adapted to the
! large class of intelligent, professional or business
I readers too far t v om New York to depend on our
papers for tlie daily news, who nevertheless want
j the editorials, correspondence, book reviews, sclen
-1 tilic matter, lectures, literarv miscellaney, etc,, for
; which The Tribune is famous. Like The Weekly
it contains sixteen pages, and is in convenient form
i for binding,
THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE
i remains tlie great favorite of our substantial country
; population, and has the largest circulation of any
I 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 the news of the
! Week into more readable shape, its agricultural do
j partment is more carefully conducted than ever, and
iit has always been considered the best. Its market
reports are 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
and 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 vffio
have returned to it during the past year they
find it better than ever. Increasing patrflnage 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 :
