Of a tym.nous lather and mother.

Tho Charlton Dally News for 1868-Im?
Encouraged by tho recont large increase in
he circulation of TUB CHARLESTON DAILY
NEWS, the proprietors aro happy to announce
that, with tho opening of tho new year, the
price of subscription will be reduced to a figure
which will at once place the paper within
the reach of every family in the city and
throughout thc State. On and after the first
of January, 1868, THE DAILY NEWS will be pub
lished at SIN DOLLARS A YEAR, payable, in all
oases, in advance. It will then be, without
exoeption, tho cheapest first-class journal in
the Southern States. There is no good reason
why our community should not be furnished
with a live daily newspaper at a rate approx!
mating that of the sprightly penny press of the
Northern cities ; and the very generous support
which has been accorded to us on all sides has
hastened a step, long contemplated on our part,
towards meeting the popular want. It is hard?
ly necessary to say that there will be no dimi?
nution in the amount or interest of the reading
matter in any department of the paper ; on the
contrary, it will be our con.tant effort and our
pride to make it, day by day, more full, reliable
and entertaining-the spirited compend of the
world's news, the mirror of local life, and the
mouthpiece of an enlightened and liberal pub?
At the soli citation of many of our friends in the
country, we shall also, during the first week in
January, commence the issue of THE CHARLES?
TON TRI-WEEKLY NEWS. The subscription
price will be THREE DOLLARS A YEAR, or Two
DOLLARS FOB SIX MONTHS, payable always in
This reduction in our rates will, we know
be all the more welcome to the public, inas
much as it comes at a time of unprecedented
financial distress, when there are few, indeed
among our people who do not sorely need every
dollar that eau be saved. We do not permit
ourselves to doubt that our enterprise will be
rewarded with a steady increase of that popu
lar appreciation,and support of whioh we hare
hitherto received so liberal a share. THE
DAILY NEWS already enjoya a circulation
largely exceeding that of any other journal
now published in this or tbe adjoining States
and its reader? may rest assured that, in the
future, no effort will be spared to increase the
attractiveness of its columns, and to extend
still further the field of its influence and use?
