We have determined, for the pre

f our Daily and Weekly paper, and til
a lieu thereof; to issue a Semi- Til

his course are many:: two of the el
iain ones are,
Firat-We need a little relaxation p
rom business, so as to regain our Cc
tealth. To do this, we must either li
uspend entirely or partially, as we d
mnd it impossible to have our busi
tess properly attended to, unless we
tave our shoulder at the -wheel.. pt
Second-The times do not justify in
he publication of a daily in our city.
We were advised long since, to In
nake the present change,.but. would c(

Alockade would be raised ere this, j1

We could makig noney by. closing to

the blockade was raised-for then re
we would be free of the expense of l

iot doing however, as a few friends al
desire seeing us. 'keep up", which we tl
shall strive to do. Come to.the as- tl
sistance of the Semi-Weekly, kind le
friends, and aid at least in making it tl
Besides giving the latest news up
to the day of publication, we intend I
to make Seni-Weekly a paper for the Ii
hlone circle, containing interesting
iant amusing articles. c
The size, though it may appear, k
small, cannot be increased as there is .
no paper to be purchased, and tlhis a
is the only kind we have. Still,
small as it lool it will be 1,undl to
contain much reaiding matter.
We desire from our old patrons a
continuance of their favors, thanking
