A LITERARY, COMMERCIAL, POLITICAL AND MISCELLANEOUS

NEWSPAPER.

(Daily, Semi-Weekly, and Weekly.)

PROSPECTUS FOR THE YEARS 1846–7.

THE DAILY TRIBUNE is published six times a week, on a sheet of 7 ample columns to the folio page for Five Dollars per annum, payable always in advance. Its average quantity of reading matter (not counting Advertisements,) is decidedly above that of the Ten-Dollar Dailies. Three Editions are issued each day-at 6 A.M., 1 P.M., and 3 P.M. respectively-so as to serve each subscriber by the Mail which will convey him the freshest news. In no single instance is the paper mailed otherwise than in the very hour it is printed, so that any delays or irregularities in its receipt must be the fault of the Post Office-certainly not ours. Each edition contains all important news received in this City up to the hour of its going to press.

The SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE is issued every Wednesday and Saturday on a sheet of the same size with the Daily, and contains nearly all the matter (Advertisements excepted) of the Daily. Price THREE Dollars per annum, or two copies for $5.

The WEEKLY TRIBUNE is published every Saturday, but printed and forwarded to all Mail Subscribers on the Wednesday and Thursday preceding, on a sheet of eight pages, nearly double the size of the Daily and Semi-Weekly issues. Its price is Two Dollars per annum, but Three copies will be sent a full year for $5, Ten copies for $15, or Twenty copies for $24. None are taken without payment (in advance, and every paper is inflexibly stopped when the period of advance payment has run out, so that no one need apprehend annoyance from duns or difficulty in getting rid of the paper when he no longer wants it.

The character of The Tribune is not now involved in obscurity, and needs elucidation to few intelligent readers. This paper aspires to be in all things a Journal of Progress and Reform-not merely dial on which Humanity may mark its struggling, arduous, fitful advances, but an effective though humble instrument and impulse of the Movement. Profoundly convinced that all War, whether between Nations, Classes or Persons, is fatally hostile to true Progress and Human well-being, it opposes all attempts to array the Poor against the Rich in fruitless contests and baleful hatreds; all incitements to Social Anarchy, all clamor for the destruction of Banks and other Institutes of the existing order of things in Commerce and Industry. In its view, the work of the true Reformer is one of Creation, not Destruction; for when the good or even the better is made manifest, the bad and the relatively defective will surely pass away. The open and uncompromising foe of Intemperance, of Licentiousness, of Slavery, and every form of Oppression, it proffers welcome and hospitality to every generous and hopeful idea, looking to the Emancipation of Industry from Social depression, tyranny or caprice.

We need hardly add that in regard to the Party Politics of the day, The Tribune is heart and soul devoted to the WHIG cause. Claiming for the Whig party no approach to perfection, either in measures or men, we see in it that spirit of devotion to Law and Order, blent with Intelligence, Liberty of Speech and Action, and practical inclination to Reforms, which are vainly sought in the ranks of that antagonistic host which perverts the name of Democracy to cover the most servile obsequiousness to the behests of Slavery. To all War, this paper must ever maintain an attitude of determined opposition, as destructive of the happiness of men and abhorrent to the beneficence and holiness of God. No false Patriotism shall dissuade, no ruffian denunciation and threatening deter us from exposing the iniquity and fearful mischief of War, and urging the Christianity and true Patriotism of the land to unite in the most efficient measures to compel our Government to desist from its schemes of aggression, invasion, and gigantic robbery by conquest.

-In setting forth those features of The Tribune which are to some extent peculiar or characteristic, it is not intended to intimate that to these its columns are wholly or mainly devoted. On the contrary, no labor or expense is grudged to render it equal to any other journal in those features which are common to many if not all. The Editor known as such to the public, is aided in the several Departments of Literature and Criticism, Commercial Transactions, City Intelligence, and General News by As sistants whose ability has been tested, and whose time and best efforts are devoted to this work. In the single department of Foreign Correspondence, three several writers of capacity and ripe experi ence are engaged in observing for and writing to us during the present year in Great Britain, France and Italy, and Eastern Europe respectively, while we are steadily maturing plans for procuring early and direct advices from every part of the world whence important intelligence may be expected. By the aid of stated correspondents at Washington and the most important points throughout the Union, (as well as private advices from friends possessing superior facilities for imparting information, The Tribune aims to be the channel of the earliest and most authentic accounts of all important Political Movements in progress or in contemplation, Federal and State Legislation, with full and accurate returns of all transpiring Elections. The earliest accounts of Crops, Business, Prices, &c., with the events of the day, are also given. If systematic exertion and unsparing outlay will effect it, we are determined to maintain for our Journal a recognized rank among the most prompt, ample, lucid and reliable in furnishing News of any in the land, while deferring to none in the fearless expression of its sentiments, and in uncalculating devotion to the best good of our country and of all Human Kind.

Subscriptions respectfully solicited. Specimen numbers of the papers will be sent to any Post Office. Country Merchants and business men are earnestly requested to examine the Daily and Weekly. The Market and Commercial and Money Reports in the Daily are especiaily valuable to all Dealers in Country Produce or Foreign Merchandise.

We are greatly indebted to our friends in various parts of the United States for their personal efforts within the last few months, in procuring subscribers to The Tribune. We are satisfied that if subscribers generally would show The Tribune to their neighbors and recommend them to become subscribers, that the subscription list might be doubled during the present year.

Money may be sent through the Post Office at our risk, provided a description of the Bill is always kept, and the Postmaster where the letter is mailed is made acquainted with the contents. The Bills of any specie-paying Bank in the Union are taken in payment for subscriptions at par. Address GREELEY & MCELRATH, Tribune Building, New-York.
