THE NEW YORK TRIBUNE FOR 1880. During the coming Presidential year The Tribune ' will be a more effective agency than ever for telling I 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. Rut 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 Mall. 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 tit 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 more cheering. THK TRIBIJNE'9 POSITION. Of The Tribune's share in all this, those speak most enthusiastically who have seen most of the struggle. it will faithfully portruy the varning 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. Rut 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 i annnany Hall. The Tribune is now spending much labor and money than ever before to hold the distinction it has epjoyed of the largent circulation among the best people. It secured, and means to retain it, by be- PRICE ONE CENT coining the medium of the bent thouglit and the voice of the best conscience of the time, by keeping abreast of the highest progress, favoring the freoest discussions, hearing all sides, uppeitling 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. SPECIAL FEATURES. The distinctive features of The Tribune are known to everybody. It gives ail the news. It huß 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 I Washington. Its scientific, literary, artistic and re ligious intelligence is the fullest, "its book reviews are the best. Its commercial and financial news is th" most exact Its type is the largest ; and its ar rangement 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 1 ork. 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 miscellane.y, etc,, for which The Tribune is famous. Like The Weekly it contains sixteen pages, ami is in convenient form for binding, THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE remains the great favorite of our substantial country population, and has 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 the news of the week into more readable shape. Its agricultural de partment is more carefully conducted than ever, and it lias 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 arc 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.
