Prospectus for the Year 1845.

A great struggle-one of unexampled duration, intensity and fierceness-has just resulted in the defeat o' the Whig Candidates for President and Vice President. This result opens a new era in the history of our Country-an era full of interest and of peril.

The Whig Candi lates are defeated, but the Whig PRINCIPLES are nbly maintained. Throughout the canvass the Whigs have planted themselves on the broadest grounds of National beneficence, and hive holl ly, manfully, universally, maintained these grounds. From Maine to Arkansas we have s ood b ldly by THE TARIFF AS IT IS, and the policy of Protecting American Labor; we have ad ocated a NATIONAL CURREN cy, rete and secure 1 by the action of Congress; we have insisted on a DISTRIBUTION OF THE PROCEEDS OF THE PUBLIC LANDS equally and justly among all the States of the Union; we have opposed the ANNEX ATION OF TEXAS to this Country, on any terms involving us in the prosecution of her War, he payment of her Debt, and t e main ennce and extension of her slavery. Ours has been an open, frank, fearless course, apealing to the People on broad and common grund to sustain their own "nd the Nation's int r sts, and to arrest impending National calamities. Our voice has been unheeded or overborne, but it has been united) and consistent; and when the hot, blinding excitement of the canvass is over, the echoes o' that voice will be found st Il vibrting through the National heart.

The campaign just closed, though disastro s in its immediate results, will yet prove auspicious in its ultimate nfl ences. In no former contest has Truth been so widely and generally diffused. Never before were just views of N tional Policy so clearly set forth, so ably defended, and so generally listened to, as in this canvass True, we are defeated after all: ut defeated because many of the People were made to bel eve that our opponents would sustain the Tariff, and not press the iniqu tous project of Annexation. For months, the f ct that there would probably be a Whig majority in the Senate has been pressed on doubting, he ilating voters to convince them that they might safely vote for Polk without endangering the success of Annexation or the overthrow of the Tariff.

-The NEW-YORK TRIBUNE will continue an advocate of those Principles and Measures with which the fortunes of the Whig party are identified. It will advocate, to the best of its ability, PROTECTION TO HOME INDUSTRY, and the maintenance of our present Tariff: it will oppose the Annexation of Texas to this Country, or any measure calculated to aggrandize one section, advance one interest-especially the Sla e-breeding interest-at the expense of others. It will discountenance any attempts to array our People against each other in strife and bitterness, like that created by Native Americanism, and will advocate the Equal Rights of all American citizens, however believing, wherever born. Hostile to Slavery, and earnestly hoping for its aban donment, The Tribune will neither countenance the unjust and impolitic abuse of Slave-holders as such, nor the formation of an Abolition party to denounce and proscrit e them. In short, The Tribune will be a Whig paper, as it has ever been, and the champion of every generous thought which looks to the elevation of the de. pressed or the well being of mankind. Abating no jot of heart or hope, it will struggle on in confidence that the Principles which it maintains, the Measures it advocates, must commend themselves to the mature judgment and enlightened sentiment of the American People.

-THE TRIBUNE will be published Daily, as heretofore, at FIVE DOLLARS per annum, and will contain, in addition t the Politics and News of the Day, very careful reports of the Markets, made up twice a day ex pressly for the Morning and Evening Editions of this paper. Each subscriber will be supplied with the edition for which he indicates a preference. We are determined, moreover, to render this paper inferior to no other in the extent and character of its Literary matter. Two of the best writers in our Country-one of hem already eminent in the higher walks of Literature-have just been engaged as regular contributors to our columns, and we trust that in the department of Reviews, general Criticism, and especially of interesting, instructive views of cotemporary German and other Continental Literature. we shall soon be enabled to exhibit a decided and gratifying change. No department of our journal shall be weakened but every one strengthened so fist as we have ability and opportunity.

The WEEKLY TRIBUNE is published every Wednesday on a sheet nearly double the size of the Daily, being an imperial quarto of the largest size. It will contain all the Literary and such of the Political and other. matter of the Daily as is not divested of its interest before Weekly publication day by the progress of events. Both papers will be printed on new and beautiful type, and every improvement made in their character and Sappearance whic a generous patronage will warrant and a watchful anxiety for improvement shall suggest.Prices Current prepared expressly for the Country, and a correct Bank Note List, will be given.

THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE is afforded to those subscribing singly at Two Dollars per annum, but three 2opies will be sent for Five Dollars, (received free of postage or other charge,) and TEN COPIES FOR FIFTEEN DOLLARS. Each paper will be directed to the individual subscriber. Or we will send Twenty Copies to one address ten months for Twenty Dollars; or Twenty Copies 12 months for Twenty-Four Dol lars. We believe no paper equal in size, variety of original contents, and amount of matter, is afforded at cheaper rates. We enter no names on our books till the ash is paid, and discontinue whenever the advance) payment runs out, so that no one need fear to take The Tribune lest he should be unable to stop it (a com mon complaint) after he has commenced. Subscriptions may commence at any time. Orders are respectfully solicited. GREELEY & MCELRATH, 160 Nassau-street. New-York, November 14th, 1844.
