For 1879 THE TRIBUNE hopes to continue with increasing success the work and the methods which through the year now ending have wou such popular ap. proval and borde such ample fruit.

A year ago THE TRIBUNE pointed out the danger to the tranquility of the country, to the Treasury, the currency and the National honor, from the alliance then forming between the solid South and Tammany Hall. 't declared that against this danger the old party of freedom, still the party of the Churches and the Schoolhouses, was

the only bulwark: and in behalf of that party it renewed the old appeal to the National con. science, and the enl

self-interest th tax payers. In all this ever ts have justified it. The year has disclosed the danger THE TRIBUNE predicted, and brought the deliverance it promised. It now asks those who think well of what it did in this eventful year to help widen yet further its influence by increasing its circulation for the next. It labored to harmonize the Republican party; to dirert Republicans from attacks upon each other to attacks upon the common enemy. It exposed Southern claims. It denounced the Southern suppression of the negro vote. It resisted debasement of the currency. It endeavored to ustain the Treasury in ad. yancing to specie payments. It strove to promote a practical reform in the Civil Service. It vindicated the legitimacy of the Republican Administration. It crushed assailants by demonstrating the infamous efforts of the Democratic leaders to buy the Presidency they had fairly lost at the polls. For these services a distinguished member of the Administration has declared that the Republican party and the country, owe THE TRIBUNE a debt of gratitude so great that, despairing of full payment immediately, they must imitate the Treasury and fund it! Leading Republicans outside of and even opposed to the Administration are everywhere heartily expressing similar opinions.

THE TRIBUNE DOw warns the country that, inspiring as the l te elections bave been, they do not end the danger. The Democrats and the Greenbackers, if united, could havo reversed the verdict. They may be united next time. They already have the Solid South to begin with, as well as the evidence of the control their union would give in many of the Western States. To prevent such a union from sweeping the country we must keep the Repub.ican party in the highest state or discipline and efficiency, and must educate the voters. If friends know any better agency for such political edncation than THE TRIBUNE. by all means use it; if not, they surely ought to make every effort to push THE TRIBUNE's circulation.

THE TRIBUNE is now spending more labor and money than ever before to deserve the distinction it has long enjoyed of the largest circulation among the best people. It is the only newspaper in the country mamtaining a special teiegraphic wire of its own between its office and the National Capital. Its Washington dispatches are wuch the fallest anywhere published. Its London correspondent, George W. Smalley, is recogpized as the foremost in that field on the American Press. Its other foreign correspondence ranks exceptionally high. Its scientific, religious and literary intelligence is often fuller, and generally more peway, than that furnished by journals expressly devoted to these specialties. Its critical departments, all conducted by the old heads, remain the acknowl. ledged anthorities: NEW BOOKS..GEORGE RIPLEY, LL.D. THE DRAMA.....WILLIAM WINTER. MUSIC, ...JOHN R. G. HASSARD. ART.

.CLARENCE COOK. THE TRIBUNE continues to be the recognized medium adopted by leading thinkers and men of prominence in all professions for communicating

with the public. THE SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE Is specially adapted to the large class of intelligent readers too far from New York to depend on its papers for the daily news, who, nevertheless, want the editorials, corres. pondence, book reviews, scientific matter, lectures, literary miscelany, etc., for which THE TRIBUNE is famous. This is the cheapest, and, for remote country readers, the best edition (1 THE TRIBUNE published. It contains sixteen pages, and is in convenient form or binding. It is far the most successful

Semi-Weekly in the country-having four times he circulation of any other in New York.

THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE Remains the great favorite for our substantial country population. A high authority has said of it that “ THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE has done more to make good farmers and good citizens than any other single influence that has ever existed in this country.” It is now larger than any of its rivals; its new form (sixteen pages, carefu ly indexed and suitable for binding) has proved exceedingly popular, ard its large, clear tvpe, so different from that of most papers of its class, is a special attraction. Its Agricultural Department, under the special management of a es rienced Agricultural Editor. with a staff of several assistants, and a large corps of special contributors, is more carefully conducter than ever, and it has always been considered the best. Its market reports are the official standard for the Dairymen's Association, and have long been the recognized author ty on cattle, grain, and general country produce. There are special departments for the young, and for household interests; while poetry, fiction, and the humors of the day are all abundantly supplied.

TWO PAPERS IN ONE. THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE 18 Now so arranged as to make two complete and separate papers of eight pages each, the first containing the news and politics; the second, the correspondence fiction, poetry, household departments, etc. Both sides of the family can thus enjoy the paper at the same time. During the past year readers have found this a specially attractive and convenient feature.

GREAT PREMIUM. WEBSTER'S UNABRIDGED FREE, Last year THE TRIBUNE offered to five years' single subscribers the unprecedented gift of WEBSTER'S UNABRIDGED QUARTO PICTORIAL DICTIONARY, which retails in all bookstores for $12. The offer proved probably the greatest success in the history of newspaper premiums. TEN THOUSAND of theso nuge Dictionaries were aliserijuted, and not one single subscriber complained that he was dissatistied with his pre. miun. We have at last su ceeded in renewing the very favorable contract with the poblishers (which alone enabled us to offer this magnificent premium), until April 1, 1879. The pubiishers positively refuse to let it extend beyond that tim. We therefore urge all to avail theurselves of the offer at once, and to advise their friends and neighbors of the oppor tv. We are extending the terms of the offer, this year, a litele, as follows:

We will sena Webster': Unabridged Pictorial Quarto Dictionary (edition of 1879), bound in sheep, the latest and best edition, as a gift to any one remitting us $10 tor :1 singletiva, years'subscription, in advance,{THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE. $15 for a singl five years' subscription, in advance, or, $20 for ten one-year subscriptions to

{THE SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE. $30 for a slugle three years' subscription, in ad.}THE DAILY TRIBUNE.

We believe this to be the most valuable and liberal newspaper premium ever offered. We cannot make it any more liberal, and to avoid useless correspondence we give notice that the Dictionary will only be sent on exact compliance with the above terms. It is not offerer, under any circumstances, to persons remitting for clubs at regalar club rates.


A $210


THE TRIBUNE makes an offer to churches, musical societies and others, more amazing thau anything yet done in the history of newspaper premiums. For 200 subscriprione from one Post Office, or its immediate vicinity, to THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE, at the lowest club rate (*195 each), we will send, postage paid, the 200 papers, augressed to in. dividual subscribers, for one year, and will send also to the church or person forwardios the club the $210 Estry Organ, confessediy one of the best in the market-s'yie 0:01, ciouble reed. seven stops, viz.: diapason, melodia, viola, vox Jubilants, tremolo, 1 forte and 11 forte. Thus, for 200 subscriptions to THE WEEKLY TRIBUN'E at the lowest clale rate, the club receives $250 in newspapers, and $2101n one of the finest organe of its sizu made in America.
