NEW VOLUME FOR 1041.
The first number of a new volume of
4 The Spirit of the Times" will be issued
on the 6th of March, 1841. In the course
of the year, a series of Magnificent Steel
Engravings, uniform with the embellish
ments of the preceding volume, will be
presented to the subscribers. A Portrait
of Monmouth Eclipse, from a painting by
Troye, will commence the series, and
be succeeded by those of other distin
guished horses during the year.
A list of American Winning Horses of
the preceding year, will be published, ar
ranged in four tables one of four mile
winners, one of three, one of two, and one
of one mile winners. These tables show
at a glance the winner of every race of
last year, his age, color pedigree and
owner, the prixe won, the weight car
ried, the time made, and the horses beat
en by him, together with ihe date and
place ot the race, and a reference to the
page of the preceding volume where the
race was originally published. These
tables are compiled with infinite care and
labor, and at great expense; they are
of constant practical use, and increase in
value every year. A list ol English
Winning Horses, for the same year, will
also be published in the volume arranged
in the English torm.
A table of the American Winning Trot
ting Horses, with the age, color, owner,
time made, weight carried, horses beat

1841, in the usual form, will also appear
in an early number of the volume, and
will be found convenient to breeders for
designating the age, color, pedigree,
owner, place and price of standing, of
nearly every distinguished Stallion in
In addition to the various subjects enu

a newspaper, and tla ir know Heiracler for
liberality and a warm desire to uphold their rep
utation as an enlightened and generous popul -tion
will certainly induce them to furnish that
support to this undertaking winch is necessary
to its success. It is a!s ume ei ssary to sav

to "cumulate some grease" ha., had its wt tight,

require a liberal patroiv.i..- t!.- (.:. v. :
generally to ketfp the Crle going, and it is
earnestly hoped the good people ol Madison
will not withhold that support loan underta
king wbieh their own Tntercsts enii i dctnind,
and every man must do his duty or the Cr !
will languish. Nor do we ask rrorcxpect sup
port alone from the people of Madison Ca lint jr.
A nv subscription will be thauktully received
from any quarter.
It is designed to make the Creole generally
useful and entertaining as far as our locality
and opportunity to go so will allow. Being in
the interior of a new state, and issui ig only
once a week it cannot be expected that news
from a distance can be furnished to our citizens'
as soon as they will obtain it through other me
diums possessing the advantage f inrc eligible
localities. All may however rest assured that
every effort will be made to accomplish the task
in hand, and if the desire to do so should not be
gratified it may be attributed to a want of abil
ity and not the absence of will That i, if you
subscribe f eely. A liberal patronage in the wav
of advertising will certainly be expected and
actually necessary as an impetus to exertion.
The Creole will indulge but little in politics,
and when such luxury is enjoyed it will be but
sparingly and favorable U the present adminis
tration with all due respect for the honest opin
ions of opponents
The general news of the da? will of course
have a prominent place, as will important polit
ical and moral movements, and such literary
and miscellaneous matter as maybe deemed of
interest to the general reader. Local affairs de
manding publicity will of course have prece
dence as the paper although intended tor gen
eral benefit and patronage is more pati;ularly
designed to uphold the immediate interests of
the community among whom it ispubh. tied.
Our debut will be made as soon a's the necessa
ry labor can be performed, which will be in a ve
ry lew days; those wishing to subscribe will
hand in their names.
TERMS The Creole will be printed on a
large imperial sheet with new and beautiful
tvpe, at Five Dollars per annum, invariably in
advance. All advertising and job work CASH
