The success of The Chicago Times during the past year has perhaps np precedent in-Amej ican journalism. lis circulation has risen, in that brief time, from a few thousands to a greutej circulation than has ever before been,,achieved by a democratic newspaper in this country. ] f Tills is attributable to its untiring enterprise in the collection of news, the scope and reliability of its commercial intelligence, and last, though not least, to its independence and boldness as a political journal. i."

ITS NEWS CHARACTER. g

The facilities for making it A Great Democratic Newspaper have been largely iner|k$?d. There is not an important point in the country where we do not now maintain one or more spe ial correspondents. By this means we are able to outstrip all our western cotemporaries in ea iy, graphic and truthful intelligence of passing events. We employ the magnetic telegraph at a ost of more than thirty thousand dollars annually, special messengers at a heavy outlay, and the •impress and mails only as they can be made useful. Indeed, without; regard to expense, we us© those instrumentalities for the collection and transmission of news which will best serve us. To this paper is the country indebted for the first and fullest reports of all the important military movements in the Southwest, and as it has been heretofore, so it will be hereafter, and as T i'a military operations in the Southwest, so shall it be with regard to political, commercial and all other operations in the whole country.

ITS COMMERCIAL CHARACTER.

Chicago is undeniably the financial and commercial centre of the Northwest. The financial and commercial reports of The Times are universally acknowledged to excel those of any other paper. Their correctness may be implicitly relied upon. The public may rest assured that the paper will, at all times and under all circumstances, be in the popular interest, and never in the interest of gamblers in money or produce. In this respect The Times will commend itself su well to legitimate bankers and legitimate produce dealers as to the great producing classes, o Vhom faithful and impartial reports of the actual state and spirit of the markets are of the highest importance.

ITS POLITICAL CHARACTER:

Thoroughly democratic as The Times is, it avoids mere partisanship. It is not an il organ," in any common meaning of the term. It is independent It expresses its own conviction of men and things, taking care always to be truthful and just It is democratic, not for the sake of party spo',Gi~for these are of no consequence to it—but because it believes in the democratic party. It believes that the mission of the democratic party hereafter is to save the country, as it has heretofore been to conduct the government of the country through all the vicissitudes of its history up to the fatal year one thousand eight hundred and sixty.J If these present awful difficulties between the North and the South shall ever be settled, it is the democratic party that will settle them. No other party can settle them, and whether they shall ever be settled and the Union restored, depends upon the success or defeat of the democratic party in the next Presidential election. In this view, how great a responsibility rests upon every democrat in the land! And how much greater responsibility reste upon every democratic journal in the land!

ITS MISCELLANEOUS CHARACTER.

Much attention will be paid to the miscellaneous and literary departments of the paper. Tales, sketches, European and home gossip, reviews of new books, and all those things which interest and amuse the general reader, will be given in sufficient profusion.

TERMS.

Three editions are published: Daily, Tri-Weekly and Weekly. Daily, $10 per year; Triweekly, $5 per year; Weekly, $2 per year.

As A Campaign Paper For The Presidential Election, it is intended that the Weekly Edition of The Times shall surpass all other papers. And we venture to suggest that, in regard to the circulation of democratic newspapers, the campaign cannot be too soon opened. Papers circulated early in Ihe year will be of far more service than those circulated at the near approach of election. And of all the means of success, what more powerful than light shed through ihe press? For terras of Jjhj^imes, in quantities of fifty and upwards, apply, for the present, by letter to the proprietors.
