Better Than Ever.

THE NEW YORK LEDGER

FOR THE NEW YEAR, 1873.

THE GREAT FAMILY PAPER

Instructive and entertaining as the LEDGER nas been in the past, we hope and intend to make it still more instructive and entertaining in the future. Our experience is greater than heretofore, and our ambition to make the LEDGER the best paper of the kind published in the world, is undiminished.

It is the aim of the LEDGER to cultivate a taste for reading in the rising generation, and at the same time, by the character of its contents, to contribute constantly to their moral and intellectual improvement and growth.

An epicure might as well undertake to write down what he would have for dinner every day for twelve months to come, as for us to attempt, at this time, a catalogue of all the good things that will be spread before the readers of the LEDGER in 1873. Our old subscribers will bear us witness that all the promises we have ever made have always been more than fulfilled. We never let slip an opportunity to obtain any really good and desirable thing. Expense and trouble never stand in our way. And in this respect, as it has been in the past, so it

will be in the future.

The LEDGER is particularly devoted to the interests and welfare of the young. A vast number of questions about lovers' quarrels, propositions of marriage, plans for housekeeping, and the best means of brightening the future of youthful married couples, are answered in its columns.

One great and guiding principle with us is to inculcate the sentiments of self-respect and self-reliance, and thus to strengthen and rent re manly the characters which are just assuming form, to endure through att 17% The LEDGER is always full of life. Nobody ever complains single number is dull.
