The Tribune was first issued as a daily on
tbe lOtb ol April, 1841. lis weekly ediiion
w commenced in September of the same
.year; is remi weekly in May, 1845. It was
the first daily in America to issue a doable
** eight page ehert at a low price, and it has
kepi at leas: even with tbe foremost of itr
rival* in the rapid expansion of Newspaper
enterprise, which the great extension of Rail
road, and lbs eeiablisnment of the Telegraph
system, have crowded into these last sixteen
resentful years. No larger journal is aflord
ded at so low a puce sn any quarter of the
world ; none in America, no matter at what
price issued, pays ah. equal amount, weekly
•r monthly, for inrellecln.il labor. It em
ploya correspondents regufarlp in the leading
Vapittds of Europe, and at the most impor
• lent points on this continent, with a liberal
elefi of writers and reporters at home, regard
ing full, early and accurate information as
first object of a Newspaper, and the timely
and thorough elucidation thereof as the chief
end of its editorials. In that spirit the TKI
- has been and will be conducted, ex
tending and perfecting its correspondence so

nect the Old with the New World by the
magnetic wire prove eucoctafui, -we-shall,
tery soon, at a heavy cost to ourselves and,
we trust, s corresponding advantage to our
readers, publish each mormog a synopsis of
the preceding day's occurrence throughout
Eerodr, Northern Africa, and Western Asia,
with regular reports of the markets, the mon-
etary aspects arid harvpsl prospects of hither
Europe. With a good atlas beside him and
ht* daily paper on his fireside table, the
American farmer or artisan within a day'*
ride of the cily may then study each even
ing the doings of rhe civilized world through
out the day preceding ; and it seems hardly
tpossible that any one who can read, but es
pecially one who has childred to educate,
will longer deny himself the pleasure and
profit of a daily ]ournah Tbe same is true

The TRIBUNE aeals with questions n|
rolilicsl Economy, Public Policy, Ethics,
material Progress and whatever may affect
fhe intellectual, moral, social and physical
well-being of mankind, dogmatic Theology
alone excepted, lis leading idea is the hon
oring of honest, useful work in whatever
sphere or capacity, and the consequent eleva
tion of the laboring class-in knowledge, vir
tne, and general esteem. It is necessarily
hostile to Slavery under all its aspects, to In
temperance in whatever form or degree with
its accessories, to War save in defence of
Country and Liberty against actual invasion,
•ml to every form of Gambling. Desiring to
see production extended and encouraged,
-while wild Speculbiion and useless traffic are
•untiled, it favors the policy ol sustaining
and diversifying Home Industry by a dis
criminating Tariffs policy which, lends to
Increase the price of Grain to the farmer
while diminishing that o' Bread to the artisan
by reducing the distances across which their
respective products are exchanged and, ol
•ourte, reducing the cost of their transfer—
Regarding Filibusterism in all its phrases,
end every form and device of National cov
etousness, with unqualified abhorrence as
the bane of Republics and in their triumph
i the grave pf Equal Human Rights, we seek
by every means to woo and win the attention
\of our count!)men from project! of sggrand
-1 ixement abroad to enter praise of develop
ment and beneficence al home, foremen
which we rank a Railroad through the heart
of onr territory lo connect the waters of the
Atlantic with ihose of the Pacific. Believ
tlng that the goods of this life are not yet
airly distributed, and that no one ready to
work should ever famish in unwilling idle
ness. Il lends an open ear to every suggestion
of Social improvement which does not boun
tvrvsil the dictates of eternal morality nor
war upon that natural right of every one to
whatsoever he lias fairly produced or honest
ty acquired, whose denial most sink man
kind into the chaos and night of barbarism
and universal squalor. With a profound con-
Miousnesa that idlers, drunkards, libertines
and profiigsted can never be other (in the
main) thin needy and wretched,.it bears
•101 l the great truth that Providence is better
than Punishment—that the child trained up
io the way he should go, will rarely in after
years desert that way of die thorny paths of
Vice and Crime—that a true Education—te
ligions, moral and industrious as well as in
tellectual—is the most effective temporal an
tidote 10 the errors and woes ol our race.
Recognizing in the most degraded specimen
of humanity, a divine spark which whould
be reverently cherished, not ruthlessly trod
den out, we have charity for all forma of evil
but those which seek personal advantage
through the debasement ol our lellowbeings.
The champion of no class or caste, the de
voted of no sect, we would lain be the inter
preter to each other of men's better impulses
end aspirations, the harbinger of general con
cord between Labor and Capital, and among
those whom circumstances orgnisapprehen
•ions have thrown into unaaiurnl antagonist).
A contemporary once observed that he never
knew a hard, grasping, niggardly employer
who did not hate the TIIIIHJNE, nor a gener
ous, large fouled, kindly one, willing to live
I and let live, who did-net like it. We ask no
higher praise, no wairmer attestation.
The circulation of the Tribune is at this
lime as follows: .Dally 32,000 copies, week
ly, 176,800 copie*;-. Semi-weekly, 16,000
copies; California 6 000 co
pies ; toiul 230,800 copies. That of the semi
weekly and weekly we believe to be excee
ded by no other in the
world; that of the dally, falls behind some of
onr cotemporaties. Had onr hostility to Hu
man Slavery and the Liquor Traffic been
more guarded and politic, onr duily issues
would be now some thousands heavier and
our advertising far more lucrative ; but of
our patronage generally we have no rea.-on,
oo <vieh, to complain.
01 late, a concerted effort has been made
<0 diminish our rural circulation through the
Influence of the Postmasters, some of whom
embark in it eagerly, others tinder dolitical
constraint; while a large number; we are
happy, for thesake of human naiuro, to stale,
refused to be dragooned into it at all. Still,
we have been made lo feel the heavy hand
of power, ar.d have doubtlesß lost thousands
of subscribers in consequence. Pretext
srh'ch no individual in his private capacity
would have stopped have been relied on to
justify the stoppage of onr papers within
reach of their subscribers and rightful owners,
end their retention in the Post Office 'till
their value was desltoyed. Postmasters have
been schooled by rival Journals—several of
them living ou their sell-proclaimed abilaty
to serve as an antidote to the Tribune—aa to
their political doty lo promote at our expense
the dissomination of gazettes of adverse poli
tics. We shall outlive this warfare, but we
do net effect indifference to it. In the open
field of discussion, we fear nothing; but ta
the lens of thousands of rursl neighborhoods
where the Postmaster can induce many of
liia qaiet neighbors to take the journal he
recora menes, we have already lost aome pa
trons, and expect to lose more as our sub
aorlptiona for this year expire. We appeal,
therefore, to the hearty, taithfol, fearless ad
•voeale of Free Labor and Free Boit through
out the land to take care ihatthis official war
fare on our circulation be not prosecuted
without counteraction. We employ no trav*
rltrtg agents, for we will not consent to have
the public hsrrassad with the solicitations of
strangers in our behalf. We strike the name
pf esph subscriber to out weekly and seiph
weekly from our books as sooti as his lerm
has expired, Tor we wdl not haunt our patrons
with dun* for arrests which they may say
they never intended to occur, for papers
which perhsps they never read, we rely lor
the renewal of our clup subscriptions solely
on the volunteered efforts ot those who,
liking our paper. believe its influence saluta
ry and Worthy to be extended; and thus lar
our reliance has been justified, as we trust it

This popular Magazine, while il does all
that is lawful lo conn popularity, never de
scends lo cater for it by ministering to opin- j
ion* or propeusi'ies injurious lo good morula 1
or social order. Though not exclusively a [
religious work, it is always auxiliary to Bi
ble truth, and sound morality.—N. Y. Chris-1

Harper's Magazine aims to be the best
reading, no matter where il may come from,
and whenever its conductors can procure
from American authors belter literary matter
than they can find elsewhere, they get it, and
they pay prices lor it, which would asionish '
some of the English Magazines.—N. Y. !
