THE PRESIDENTIAL YEAR.
■ " THE LEA 1)1 NO AMERICAN NEWS
TIIE NEW YORK
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
I sound politics. From the day the war closed it has
I been most anxious for an end of sectional strife.
| But it saw two years ago, and was the first persist-
I ently to Proclaim the new danger to the country
from the revived alliance of the Solid South and
! Tammany llall. Against that danger it soughtto
j rally the old party of Freedom and the Union. It
began by demanding the abandonment of personal
j 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 fit
| candidates the majority should put up against the
\ common foe. Since then the tide of disaster lias
j been turned back; every doubtful state lias been
I won, and the omens for National victory were never
| more cheering.
THE TRIBUNE'S POSITION,
j 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 earning
j phases of the campaign now beginning. It will
I 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
j crisi* it can conceive of no nomination this party
j could make that would not be preferable to the b< st
' that could possibly he supported by the Solid South
I and Tammany Hull.
The Tribune is now spending much labor and
j money than ever before to hold the distinction it bus
| enjoyed of the large/it circulation among the bent
j people. It secured, and means to retain it, by be-
coming the medium of the bent thought and the
voice of the best conscience of the time, by keeping
abreast of the highest progress, favoring the freeest
discussions, bearing 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.
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 rc
; ligious intelligence is the fullest. Its book reviews
j 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-WEEKLY TRIBUNE
! is by far the most successful Semi-Weekly in the
I country, having four times the circulation of any
j other in New York. It is especially adapted to the
1 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
thi' editorials, correspondence, book reviews, scien
tific matter, lectures, literary miscellaney, etc,, for
which The Tribune is famous. Like The Weekly
it contains sixteen pages, and is in convenient form
J for binding,
THE WEEKLY TIH BI'NE
remains the 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
New York, or, so far as we know, in the United
States. 11 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
i reports are the official standard for the Dairymen's
Association, and have long been recognized author
itv on cattle, grain and general country produce.
: There are special departments for the young and for
household inter, st -; the new handiwork department
already extremely popular, gives unusually accurate
| and comprehensive instructions in knitting, crochet
j 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 titan ever. Increasing patronage and
faeilitias enable us to reduce the rates to the lowest
i point we have ever touched, and to otier the most
amazing premiums yet given, as follows:
