it, will be melsorable as deciding
upon Grant's aspirations for a third

The Weekly Sun, which has at
tained a circulation of over eighty
thousand copies, already has its
readers in every State and Territory,

when unimportant, at full length
when of moment; and always, we
trust, treated in a clear, interesting
and instructive manner.
It is our aim to make the Weekly
Sun the best family newspaper in
the world, and we shall continue to
give in its columns a large amount
of miscellaneous reading, such as
stories, tales, poems, scientific in
telligence and agricultural informa
tion, foi which we are not able to
make room in our daily edition.
The agricultural department espe
cially is one of its prominent fea
tures. The fashions are also regu
larly reported in its columns; and
so are the markets of every kind.
The Weekly Sun, eight pages
with fifty-six broad columns is only
$1.20 a year, postage prepaid. As
this price barely repays the cost of
the paper, no discount can be made
from thip rate to clubs, agents, post

Wild Oats now enterasuccesafally
upon the sixth year of its existence,
and has eome the established hu
morous and satirical paler of the
country. It was started and contin

then to satisfy the demand of the
public, it was changed to a fort

work of hitting folly as it flies, and
showing up the political and social
lamsby its masterly cartoons and
pungent editorials, it achieved even
greater success than before, and was
recognised as the ablest and bright
