The Gazette is now tho oldest paper in
the State, and with few exceptions the old?
est in the country, aud iis usefulness bas
been demonstrated and appreciated during
the EIGHTY-SEVEN YEARS ofits Cxi ?'.<?; . >. !;:
its columns has always been found a mirror
of passing events, and the careful chroni?
cling of the history of what is going on in tin
world has ever been its aim. It is always
welcomed in tho household, whilo in tho
counting room and workshop it has become
The Gazette has better facilities (or ob?
taining news than any paper outside of tho
national capital. Situated as it is so close
to the great centre of new?, it enjoys <'.
the benefit of the Associnted Press dis?
patches from every part of the world : hence
its patrons can read from its columns in the
evening what has transpirc-ii thai day in
every portion of our own domain as
from every part of tho babitablo %
Consequently it is an every day occurrence
for tho Gazette to publish telegrams from
the various Europeau capitals twelve and
fifteen hours earlier than the morning pa?
Another feature that serves to make the
Gazette a great desideratum with mer?
chants is its afternoon market report; from
Xew York, Baltimore, Chicago aud other
The local department furnishes a full and
complete bietory of everything that occurs
in and near the city, and this feature will,
as ever, receive careful attention.
The Gazette's circulation is steadily in?
creasing, especially among people who ccn
suit its advertising columns before purchas?
ing. That this is self-evident may be infer?
red from tho fact that a large country edi?
tion?nearly as large as the daily?is sent
all over this section ol country three times
a week, and i3 read by thousands, most ci
whom send here or to contiguous cities to
make purchases. The advantages of ad?
vertising in the Gazette are, therefore, ap?
