(Ill.) Mir.

"Among the chief characteristics of The Tribune are judgment, reliability, power, honesty, candor, and great common sense.

"The editorials of The Tribune are marked by good sense, strength of position, transparency, good temper, and, as a general fact, good logic. They always read like the productions of men of experience, of strong common sense-and invariably are possessed of a manly tone. Politically, they are courteous, though sometimes almost fearfully severe; and, if an opponent is to be executed, it is done with as much consideration and leniency as the occasion and person will admit. Its political columns are characterized by the most signal ability, and to-day, probably, carry more weight and confidence throughout the country than any other journal in America."



NEW YORK TRIBUNE.-This paper, edited by Horace Greeley, will commence its tenth volume on the 7th of this month. It has been considerably enlarged and otherwise improved the last year, without increase in its terms, making it now the cheapest of the class of city journals. Tribune is devoted to the protection of home labor, the freedom of the public lands to the landless, the devotion of the public revenue less to war, navies, &c., and more to education and internal improvement. Besides being an able advocate of these and all kindred social reforms, the Tribune has an ample domestic and foreign correspondence, enabling it to give the latest news from every quarter of the globe.

NEW YORK TRIBUNE.-The New York Tribune is now in its tenth year. It has a corps of twelve Editors and Reporters, thirty-seven Printers, two Proof-readers, thirteen Pressmen, Engineer, and other laborers in the Press-room, four permanent Correspondents in Europe, three at Washington, two in Canada, two in California, THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE FOR 1851.-The one in Mexico, one in Havana, one in central Amer- tenth volume of this invaluable journal, it will be ica, besides others in the various cities of the Unit-seen by a prospectus published in that paper, comed States.

It consumes seven tons and a half of paper weekly, and 150 pounds of ink. Among its editors are several names familiar in the republic of letters, such as Horace Greeley, C. A. Dana, Bayard Taylor, J. F. Cleveland, and George Ripley.-Georgetown (Ky.)

had the reading of The Tribune more or less for NEW YORK WEEKLY TRIBUNE.-Having several years, we can safely and honestly say, that of all "Whig" or "Democratic" papers with which we have become acquainted, this is decidedly the best.

On all the great and absorbing questions of the day, the editor takes "high ground," far in advance of his party--so much so, that we have often wondered how he could remain in its ranks, advocating with all his might the non-extension of Slavery, while the great ones of the party were wielding all their influence either in favor of non-interfer

It is a paper adapted to any meridian. and is a useful and valuable one, containing news from all parts of the world, and of that character which makes it almost indispensable.

Is issued every morning except Sunday on a large sheet of fine white paper, forming eight pages of six columns each, or about the size of two average Country Newspapers. About six of these pages are new every morning; the aggregate of Editorials, News, and Miscellanies, being greater than that of any other paper in America, and greater than any but one or two in Europe, though its price is but half that of other first class Dailies, in this Country, and less than one fourth of the cost of similar journals in England. Two Evening Editions are issued to supply each subscriber with the latest news up to the hour when his copy must be mailed.

THE TRIBUNE is edited in chief by HORACE GREELEY, who has special charge of all matters pertaining to the Politics and Legislation of our Country. Its Foreign (Old World) department is in charge of CHARLES A. DANA, assisted by able correspondents in London Paris, Constantinople, &c., &c. Its California intelligence and its City department are in charge of BAYARD TAYLOR, assisted by an efficient corps of Reporters. No expense is or will be spared to render its news from all quarters, by Telegraph, Expresses, Steamships, and Mails, as early and reliable as that of any other paper.

We mean that no Weekly shall surpass this in giving a full, graphic, and faithful account of what the world is Doing, whereof it is Thinking, and how it is Progressing.

The Tribune is not quite ten years old, and has obtained an aggregate circulation of not far from sixty five thousand copies-about two thirds of them on its Weekly. Every subscription is paid in advance, and the paper stops when the advance pay runs out, so that no man need hesitate to subscribe from an apprehension of being dunned for arrears, per haps after he has left the place to which the paper is sent, in ignorance that it is continued. Subscriptions from individuals and clubs are respectfully solicited by

The Mohammedan Era began with the day after the flight o. of Mohammed to Medina; which event occurred in the night of Thursday. July 18 (N. S.), 622 A. D. The year consists of 12 months, embracing 12 lunations, or 354 days. The intercalary, or leap-year, consists of one day more. In a cycle of 30 years, there are 19 common and 11 leap-years. Since the Mohammedan year is 11 days less than the tropical year, "it is obvious that in about 33 years the above months will correspond to every season, and every part of the Gregorian year." The 9th month is the month of fasting, at the close of which the feast of Bairam begirs.
