ARIZONA.

The regular election for Delegate to Congress and for members of both houses of the Legis. lature was held June 3, 1868. There was no Territorial nominating convention, although the Democrats of Yavapai County urged one, and failing to secure it, met at Wickenburg, and nominated John A. Rush for Delegate. A vigorous appeal was made to the Democracy throughout the Territory to support him, and he received some Union votes in central and western Arizona upon local grounds, but Governor Richard C. McCormick, who had been brought forward as an Independent Union candidate, was elected by the largest majority yet given a delegate from the Territory. The vote Adams, Independent Democrat, 186. Total, stood: For McCormick, 1263; for Rush, 644; for 2093. In Yavapai County, Democrats only were chosen to the Legislature; in the other four counties the tickets were made up without re. gard to party, and the members elected are about equally divided politically.

The regular election for Delegate to Congress and for members of both houses of the Legis lature was held June 3, 1868. There was uo Territorial nominating convention, although the Democrats of Yavapai County urged one, and failing to secure it, met at Wickenburg, and nominated John A. Rush for Delegate. A vigorous appeal was made to the Democracy throughout the Territory to support him, and he received some Union votes in central and western Arizona upon local grounds, but Governor Richard C. McCormick, who had been brought forward as an Independent Union candidate, was elected by the largest majority yet given a delegate from the Territory. The vote Adams, Independent Democrat, 186. Total, stood: For McCormick, 1263; for Rush, 644; for 2093. In Yavapai County, Democrats only were chosen to the Legislature; in the other four. counties the tickets were made up without re. gard to party, and the members elected are about equally divided politically.

"The Leading American Newspaper. THE NEW-YORK TRIBUNE FOR 1880.

During the coming Presidential year THE TRIBUNE will be a more effective agency than ever for telling the news best worth knowing, and for enforcing sound politics. From the day the war closed it has been most anxious for an end of sectional strife. But it saw two years ago, and was the first persistently to proclaim the new danger to the country from the revived alliance of the Solid South and Tammany Hall. Against that danger it sought to rally

THE OLD PARTY OF FREEDOM AND THE UNION It began by demanding the abandonment of personal dislikes, and set the example. It called for an end to attacks upon each other instead of the enemy; and for the heartiest agreement upon whatever fit candidates the majority should put up against the common foe. Since then the tide of disaster has been turned back; every doubtful State has been won, and the omens for National victory were never more cheering. The Solid South aud its Northern allies favored Repudiation, and we have kept the Public Faith. They favored Inflation, and we have restored Specie Payments. They sought to break down the safeguards of the ballot-box, and we have maintained the election laws.

THE TRIBUNE'S POSITION.

Of THE TRIBUNE'S share in all this, those speak most enthusiastically who have seen most of the struggle. The Michigan State Committee officially urged the circulation of THE TRIBUNE as the best means of educating the voters and bringing out the vote. The Maine Republicans declared that no other agency made so many votes. Ohio, Pennsylvania and New-York teil the same story.

THE TRIBUNE is now spending more labor and money than ever before to hold the distinction it has long enjoyed of the largest circulation among the best people. It secured, and means to retain it, by becoming the medium of the Dest thought and the voice of the best conscience of the time, by keeping abreast of the highest progress, favoring the freest discussion, hearing all sides, appealing always to the best intelligence and the purest morality, and refusing to cater to the tastes of the vile or the prejudices of the ignorant.

SPECIAL FEATURES.

The distinctive features of THE 1 RIBUNE are known to everybody. It gives all the news. It has the best correspondents, and retains them from year to year. It is the only paper that maintains a special telegraphic wire of its own between its office and Washington. Its use of the Ocean Cables during the coming year for foreign news will be more marked than ever. Its scientific, literary, artistic and religious intelligence is the fullest. Its book reviews are the best. Its commercial and financial news is the most exact. Its type is the largest; and its arrangemeat the most systematic.

The Semi-Weekly Tribune

is by far the most successful Semi-Weekly in the country, having four times the circulation of any other in New-York. It is specially adapted to the large class of intelligent, professional or business readers too far from New-York to depend on our papers for the daily news, who nevertheless want the editorials, correspondence, book reviews, scientific matter, lectures, literary miscellany, etc., for which THE TRIBUNE is famous. Like THE WEEKLY it contains sixteen pages, and is in convenient form for binding.

The Weekly Tribune

remains the great favorite of our substantial country population. It revises and condeuses all the news of the week into readable shape. Its agricultural department is more carefully conducted than ever, and it has always been considered the best. Its market reports have long been the recognized authority on cattle, grain and general country produce. There are special departments for the young, and for household interests; the new handiwork department, already extremely popular, gives unusually accurate and comprehensive instructions in knitting, crocheting, and kindred subjects; while poetry, fiction and the humors of the day are all abundantly supplsed. THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE is now so arranged as to make two complete and separate papers of eight pages each, the first containining 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. The verdict of the tens of thousands of old readers who have returned to it during the past year is that they find it better than ever. Increasing patronage and facilities enable us to reduce the rates to the lowest point we have ever touched, and to offer the most amazing premium yet given.
