WARD HOUSE SHAVING I'AHLOR
THE PRESIDENTIAL YEAR.
" THE LEADING AMERICAN NEWS
THE NEW YORK
During the coining Presidential year The Tribune
will be a more effective agency than over 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.
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 abididonment 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 tin
common foe. Wince then the tide of disaster lias
been turned back; every doubtful state lias been
won, and the omens for National victory were never
THE TRIBUNE'S POSITION.
Of The Tribune's share in all t,li!s, those speak
most enthusiastically who have seen most of the
struggle. It will faithfully portray 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. But in this
erisiN 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 has
enjoyed of the I argent circulation among the bent
peopje. It secured, and means to retain it, by he
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 freccst
discussions, hearing all sides, appealing always to
tiie 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 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
I the most exact Its type is the largest; and its ar
j rangement the most systematic.
THK BEMI-WEEKLY TKIBUNJt
i is by far the most successful Semi-Weekly in the
! country, having four times the circulation of any
; other jn New York. It is especially adapted to the
large class of intelligent, professional or business
i readers too far from New York to depend on our
i papers for the daily news, who nevertheless wsnt
tiie editorials, correspondence, book reviews, scien-
I title matter, lectures, literary miscellaney, etc,, for
which The Tribune is famous. Like The Weekly
it contains sixteen pages, ami is in convenient form
THK WKKKLY Till BUNK
! remains the great favorite of our substantial country
population, nnd has the largest circulation of any
Weekly issued from the office of a Daily paper in
j New York, or, so far as we know, in the United
i States. It revises and condenses all the news of the
; week into more readable shape. Its agricultural de
pnrtment 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.
1 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, crochei
| 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
hsve returned to it during the past year is that they
: find it better than ever. Increasing patronage and
' fuellitias enable us to reduce the rates to the lowest
j point we have over touched, and to otier the most
amazing premiums yet given, as follows :
