THE LEADING AMERICAN NEWS
TIIK NEW YORK
TRI B U N E
During the coming Presidential year The Tribune
i 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 has
been most anxious for an end of sectional strife.
But it saw two years ago, and was the tirst 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 tit
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
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 varniug
phases of the campaign now beginning. It will
earnestly strive that the party of Freedom, Union
nnd 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 h6ld the distinction it has
enjoyed of the largest circulation among the bent
| peopje. It secured, and meuns to retain it, by be-
coming the medium of the best thought and the
i voice of the best conscience of the time, by keeping
abreast of the highest progress, favoring the l'reeest
discussions, hearing all 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.
BPECIA L FEATURES.
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 otlice and
Washington. Its scientific, literary, artistic and re
ligious intelligence is the fullest. Its hook reviews
are the best. Its commercial and financial news is
the most exact Its type is the largest; and its ar
rangement the most systematic.
THK SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE
is by far the most successful Send-Weekly In the
country, having fotir 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 on our
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
ii contains sixteen pagys, and is in convenient form
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 do
partment 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
facilities enable us to reduce the rates to the lowest
point we have ever touched, and to otter the most
amazing premiums yet given, as follows :
