TIIK NEW YORK
TRIB U N E
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 politics. From the day the war closed it lias ;
been most anxious for an end of sectional strife.
Hut it saw two years ago, and was the first persist- j
ently to Proclaim the new danger to the country |
from the revived alliance of the Solid South and i
Tammany Hall. Against that danger it sought to
rally the old party of Freedom and the Union, it
begun by demanding the abandonment of personal '
dislikes, and set the example. It called for an end j
to attacks upon each other instead of the enemy; j
and for the heartiest agreement upon whatever fit
candidates the majority should put up against the
icomraon 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 varning
phases of the campaign now beginning. Jt 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 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 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 large it circulation among the bent
people. It secured, and means to retain it, by be-
PRICE ONE CENT
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 tin* 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 tlie ignorant.
The distinctive features of The Tribune are known
to everybody. It gives ail tlie 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 ofl'ice and
| Washington, its scientific, literary, artistic and re-
I ligious intelligence is the fullest. Its book reviews
are the best, its commercial and tinancinl news is
| the most exact its type is the largest; and its ar
j rungcineiit the 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
j readers too far from New York to depend on our
j papers for the daily news, who nevertheless want
the editorials, correspondence, book reviews, seicn
-1 tifie matter, lectures, literary miscellaney, etc,, for
which The Tribune is famous. Like The Weekly
it contains sixteen pages, and is in convenient form
TIIE 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
Ntutt s. it revises and condenses all the news of the
week into more readable shape, its agricultural do
partinent 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
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 readers who
have returned to it during the past year is that they
find it better than ever. Increasing patronage anil
faeilitias enable us to reduce the rates to the lowest
point we have ever touched, and to oiier the most
amazing premiums yet given, as follows:
