TUIE TRIBUNE was first Issued a a Dai JL ly oa the 19th of April, 1SJ1. Its Week ly edition rsi ctnmenred in September of the nmt year; its Semi-Weekly in May, 1845. It tu the first daily in America to issue a dou ble or eight-pago shoet at a low price, and H baa kept at lent even with the forriinost of it rivals ra the rapid expansion of Newspaper enterprise. Which the ?ret extension of Railroads, and the establishment .of the Telegraph system hare crowded into the last sixteen eventful yuan. No larger journal is aXwded at so low a price is any quarter of the world; none in Amcrica.no matter at whit price issued, p&yt an equal amount, weekly or mmthly, for intellectual la bor. ' It employ! correspondents regularly in the leading capitals of Europe, and at the mist im portant points on this continent w'rth a liberal atalT of writers and reporters at home, regarding fall, early and accurate information as the first object of a Newspaper, and the timely and thorough elucidation thereof as the chief end of iU EJitorials. Ju that spirit, the Tribune bas been and will bo conducted, extending and per- feetiug its correspondence so fast as the increase of its patronage will justify the expense. Should ' the current attempt to connect the Old with the New World by ths magnetic wire prove success ful, we shall rery soon, at a heary cost to oar elves, and, we trut, a corresponding advantage to oar readers, pu'i'Uh each morning a synopsis of the preceding dir$ ocenrrences throughout Europe. Northern Africaand Western Asia, with regular reports of the markets, the monetary as oects and harvest nrosnects of hither Euro DC With a good atlas beside him and his daily pa per Ou his nresiJe table, the American farmer or artisan within a day's ride of the city may then tody each evening the doings of the civilized world throughout the day preceding; and It eeras hardly possible that any who can read, bat especially one who has children to educate, will longer deny himself the pleasure and profit of a daily journal. The same Is true measure ablyof those who live further inland; though, where mails are unfrequent, a Semi Weekly, or even a Weekly paoer may seem sufficient. THE TRIBUNE deals with qnestions of Po litical Economy, Public Policy, Ethics, Material Progress, and whatever may affect the Intellec-' tqal. Moral, Social and Physical well-being of mankind, dogmatic Theology alone excepted. Its leading ides U the honoring of honest, useful Work in whatever sphere or capacity, and ihe consequent elevation of the Laboring Class in knowledge,' virtue and general esteem. It Is necessarily hostile to Slavery under all its as pect, to Intemperance in whatever form or de cree with its accessories, to War save in the de fence of Country and Liberty against actual in - vasion, and to every form of Gambling,1esiring to see Production extended and encouraged, while wild Speculation and useless Traffic are curtailed, it favors the policy of sustaining and diversifying Home Industry by a discriminating Tariffa policy which tends to increase the price of Grain to the farmer, while diminishing thatef Bread to the artisan, by reducing the dis tance across which their respective products are exchanged, and, of course, reducing the cost ef their transfer. Regarding Fillibusterism in all its phases, and evcrv form and device of Na tional covetousness, with unqualified abhorrence as the bane of Repuhlics, and in their triumph the grave of Equal Human Rights, we seek by very means to woo and win the attention of our countrymen from projects of aggrandisement broad to enterprises of development and benefi cence at borne, foremost among which we rank a Railroad through the heart of our Territory to connect the waters of the Atlantic with those of the Pacific.- Believinz that the eoods'of this life are notyotfuirlydistributed,andthatnoone ready to work should ever famish in unwilling idleness, it lends an open ear to every sugges tion of Social Improvement which does not coun tervail the dictates of eternal Morality nor war cpoa that natural right of every one to whatso ever he has fairly produced or honestly acquired, whose denial must sink mankind into the chaos i. and nisht of barbarism and universal squalor. With profound consciousness that idlers, drunk 7ards,libertines anl profligates can never booth--er (in the rutin) thin needy and wretched, it K bears aloft tbe great truth that Prevention is bet-.aee-ahan Punishment- that the child trained up i in the war he' should go, will rarely in after -years desert tT.it way for the thorny paths of ""Vice aJ Cnmo that a true b location Kelig- soqs, Stlisral and industrial as well as inieuectu-.fiJ-is'lbe'Jnoste furtive temporal antidote to the errors, an i woes of our race. Recognizing in the most' degraded specimen of Humanity, a divine parkiwhich ahould he reverently cherished, not ruthlessly trod den out, we have charity for all foreBof evil bo t those which seek personal ad ntiM thnui") i the debasement of our fellow- bini. "Tk -linmion .of no class or caste, the devjotee-of aa sect, we w.iuld fain be the inter preter to each other of men's better impulses and aspirations, the harbinger o f general concord be tween Labor aad Capital, and among those whom cireunistanoesor min-tnprebe.isions have thrown into nnnaturalantagonism. A cotemporary once observed that'he aever knew a hrd, grasping, niggardly employer who did n"t hate the Tri bune, nor a genuine, large-souled, kindly one, willing to live aa4 let live, who did not like it. We ask no bigher praise, no warrver attestation. The citcttlalies of the Tribune is at this time as follows:. Bailv, 3S.OOO copies; Weekly, 1X8,800 copied; Semi-Weekly, 10,000 cop-iee!- r.nlifumi Bad RaronrHin. O.OOO conies: Toaal, .30,0 copies. That of the Semi Weekly and Weekly, we believe to be exceeded by ao Other newspaper published in the world; tbetvf the Daily falls behind, that of some of ourlcotemporaries. Had our hostility to Human Slavery and the. Liquor Traffic been more guar-, ded and politic eur Daily issues would now be some thousands heavier, and our advertising far Snore lnovative; but of our patronage generally we rmve no reason, ao wish to complain. Of late, a concerted effort has been made to diminish our rural circulation through the influ ence of the Postmasters, some of whom embark in it eagerly, others under political constraint; while a barge number, we are happy, for the sake of Hassan Nature, U state, refuse to be dragoon ed into it at all. Still, we have been made to feel the heary hand of Power, and have doubt less lost thousands of sabseribersincensequence. Pretexts. Which ao individual in his private capacity' weuTd have stooped, have been relied on to justify the stoppage of our papers within reach' ef their subscribers and rightful owners, and their retention in the Post Office till their value waa destroyed. Post Masters have been schooled by rival' journals several ef them liv ing on theirself-proclaimedability toserve as aa antidote to the Tribune as to their political Aaty to promote at our expense the dissemination tf gacettee of adrorso politics.. We shall outlive this warfare, but we do not affect indifference' to It. In the openaeldof discussion.wefearnoth Inff: but in the tens of thousands of rural neighWbooafl where the Post Master can indnee many or nis quiet neighbors to tajce tne journal he recommends, we have already lost some pat rons, and expect to lose more as our subscrip- tioM tor this year expire. We appeal, therefore, to the hearty i faithful, fearless advocates of I ree Labor and Free Sail throughout t 'and to take care that this official warfare on bur circulation be not prosecuted without counteraction. We employ no travelling agents, for we will not con sent to have the public harassed with the solici tations of strangers in Our behalf. Westrikethe name or each subscriber to our Weekly or Semi Weekly from our books so soon as his term has expired, foe we will not haunt eur patrons with duns for arrears which they may say they never Intended to incur, for papers which perhaps they never read: we rely for the renewal of our club subscriptions solely on the volunteered efforts of those who, Ii king our paper, believe its influence salutary and worthy to be extended; and thus far onr reliance has been justified, as wetrustit may continue to be. - TERMS: . - " Dajlt Taiiirtr., per annum, - - $6.00 8EMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE. .

June 4, '57, tf. ..;..' t WHITE CLOUD is situated on tie Missouri River, in Doniphan County, Kansas, six hundred and fifteen miles above St. Louis, and two miles below tbe Nebraska line. The landing, a mile in extent, of beautiful bluff rock, is equalled by but one from St. Louis to Sioux City, a distance of one thousand miles, and being the natural business point for a large extent of ncn and beautiful country, will, of itself, ra a few years, build up a nounsning city. Upon the town site, and all through the adjacent country, there is an abundance of timber of every kind needed for family and building purposes. Iron ore is found on the town site, also stone of a superior quality, for buildiug purposes. Bituminous coal of an excellent quality is found in large quantities near the town. As a point for Manufacturing, White Cloud has no superior on the Missouri River. No portion of tho West has a finer climate, better soil, more beautiful scenery or is better watered than the country for 150 miles back of White Cloud. Of the central position of White Cloud nothing need be said. An accurate map of the Country is the best comment. It is immediately on the air line from the great State of Iowa, and Northern Missouri, to Western and Northwestern Kansas, as well as Southern Nebraska. The roads di verging from here are good at all seasons. A State road is now opening, and will soon be completed from the opposite side of the Missouri River to Des Moines, in Iowa, and as there is a new steam ferry recently established, this will be the most direct and convenient route for the emigration to Northern and Western Kansas. A Railroad has already been chartered to t ort luley, in the interior of the Territory, and will be built at no distant day. The healthtulness of the climate, and fertility of the soil are proverbial, and are surpassed only by the beauty of the gently undulating prairie. This portion of the public domain is rapidly filling up, but still most valuable lands can be obtained within a very reasonaoie aisiance at tne government price. lute uioua, tnougu scarcely a year old, contains one or tne best hotels in Kansas; five stores all doing a good business, and a class of buildings superior to most new towns, and has a populatian of five hundred, and is rapidly improving in every respect.
