The Journal, in an entirely new iress, shaped in the latest and most approved style, greets its , readers this morning, with , its ; profoundest bow. We need not say that no expense has been spared to "make the paper, in . ita present form, a representative .of the progress, intelligence and good lasts of our citizens. ' The paper tells that by ita very appearance. Sohie of our renders may cli?ulie the quarto form because they are un accustomed to it., -We think, how evervth&t all will in time agree with xs that it Is not only the neatest in appearance, but the most convenient aaanner in which a daily paper can be ."made up." We have several reasons for adopting the. quarto form. ;It is the most fashionable. Have we a lady reader who can not appreciate the potency of that reason? By pub lishing reading matter on every page advertisers esptr!-.nce the benefit of a glance over their advertisements by - very f reader of the paper "every , morning. ' Their ability and will ingness to 4 sell their goods cheap is ' kept "before the people" in a - way that can never be done in the old felanket sheet style Of making up pa jrL', Again,' under our1 present ar rangement, we can discard the "hand hill" or "poster " style of newspa pers which nearly all the Dailies of second class cities' have ' adopted. Nothing is' more unpleasant to the reader of a newspaper than the glar ing display of poster type in a paper that he takes ;up to findtbe news. Our observation and experience, have laught us that in exact proportion as fcewspapcrs prostitute themselves ' to the whims and wishes of every adver tiser as to he size of the type in jflbich his advertisement shall be pub lished, they lose their - value as ad vertising mediums. The papers which have the largest advertising patron age, such as the New York Herald, and Cincinnati Commercial, are those who- ha.ye': .discarded tjie.'.old man-nf'- 'op displaying their advertise-; mentJ Besides, where every adter-j tiser, is permitted to put his advertise-! isent in big type, relatively, adrtise e3 are no more conspicuous' than where they are all neatly displayed in xnall tyt- We stilt retain a few ad vertisements whose contracts are nearly expired. Ilsreafter, no large cuts will be received, nof will unusually large type he used in displaying advertisements. We are confident every reader will in--orse'the wisdom of this resolution i We have purposely selected a type With bold clear face, both for tie reading4 matter " and fadvertisementsJ This, too, we- apprehend will give sat--isfd.ction to all our subscribers. . For a time some of our readers may experience difficulty in knowing; where to look for what they want, and we will, therefore, specify our intended manner ,fcf naking up 1 the paperQjLjQjyrst ise we will put the telegraph, and per haps some late news selections. On our second page will always be found com munications, i seleetions, &c. On the -third page ; a column, .at least, of poetry, sentiment, or something of,, that sort may :. he r antic ipated. The fourth page will he set 'apart for editorial. 'The sixth page will contain local and State news; ,the seventh page, .commercial and river Intelligence, and the eighth page, late Jocal and river news. In a day or two are hope to have our advertisements classified ; that every, reader will ' know exactly on which page to look foi a particular hranch of business or trade. This will be of convenience to ihe readers and valuable to the adver-'iitftB.v-fi'' Si - :i i " ?We have no very extensive promises to make as to future improvements. Our readers fill, give us credit, we j 1 THE ' ESITAX SVIL.L.E DAILY JOUMNAIi,: WEDNESDAY, think, for doing all in our power wit' the means at our command to present them with a readable and acceptable paper; , We think our paper will com pare favorably with any Daily in the United States published in a city of no larger population than our own We shall endeavor to make of the Journal a newspaper in every sense of the "word. We shall devote mor than ordinary attention to the loca department, and trust that we shall in this particular make our paper reflect as from a mirror, all that transpires in the city, of public interest. We have no complaints, to make as to our patronage in the past. We on ly trust that our friends will, in the future, exert themselves in our be half in proportion to our efforts to please and inform them. 1 MIIXIIIERXGOOBS. TO THE MILLINERS.
