From thla time antll tho Frcildentlal elec
tion, every loyal man who favor tho re-elec
tion of Mr. Lincoln will want a newepapar
published at the seat of Government, advocat
ing tho Union nomination for President and
Vlco rrcldent.
To all aucb, who dostro a pipor which will
keep them promptly advised ef all political
movements, and their probable) comeqnencei,
wo tender the National Republican, with
confidence that It will full! their desires In
this respect.
The National Republioah will contlnno to
furnish In advance of all competitors the latest
and most reliable news from our different
arm Ice, and especially from the Army of the
It, literary and miscellaneous departments
will receive special attention, and efforts are
continually being made to ctabllih the charac
ter of the WariiLT National IUpdduoa as a
family paper.
Sir months ago the weekly paper was en
larged to Its present size and greatly Improved
In Its typographical appearance. Our list has
Increased largely since that time, for which we
thank our numerous voluntary agents through
out tho loyal States. During that time, how
ever, the prices of labor and of material havo
increased upwards of fifty per cent. In view
of that fact we do not propose to Increase the
price of tho paper, but to urge upon our friends,
and the friends of the Union, who favor tho ro-
clcctlonof o tr present worthy and patriotic Chief
Magistrate, to nso their utmost endeavors to
Increase our circulation. This Is tho only waj
by which we can to able to keep tho Wcbclt
National Republican up to the high standard
It has occupied during tho last six months.
Wo dcetro a large number of subscribers for
tho political campaign, which has opened by
the nominations made at tho Baltimore Convention.
We propose to send our weekly paper for tho
