THE WEEKLY SUN will continue to be
a thorough newspaper. All the news of the.
day will be found iu it, condensed when un

and always-, we trust, treated iu a clear, in
terestinr and instinctive manner.

nent feature In the WEEKLY SUN, and its
articles will alwavg be lound fresh and use
ful to the farmer.
The number of men independent in poli
tics is increasing, and the WEEKLY SUN
is their paper especially. It belongs to no
party, and obeys no dictation, conteudi g
for painciple, and for the election of the
best men. It exposes the corruption that
disgraces the country and threatens the
overthrow of republican institutions. It has
no fear of knaves, and seeks no favors from
The markets of eveiy kind aDd the fashions
are regularly reported in its columns.
The price of the WEEKLY SUN is one
dollar a year for a sheet of eight pages, and
fifty-six columns. As this barely pays the
expenses of paper and printing, we are not

efforts to extend its circulation. Under tho
new law, which requires payment or pos
tage in advance, one dollar a yar, with
twenty cents he cost of prepr.id positane
