In 1866, the Kingdom of Hanover, the Electorate of Hesse-Cassel. the Duchies of SchleswigHolstein and Nassau, the Free City of Frankfort, and portions of Bavaria and Hesse-Darmstadt, together with a population of 4,285,700, were annexed to Prussia.
The States marked t belong to the North German Confederation, which embraces an aggregate population of 29,220,862. Of Hesse-Darmstadt only one province belongs to the Confederation.
In 1867, in virtue of a treaty between Prussia and Waldeck, the administration of Waldeck was assumed by Prussia.
Politicians, Public Libraries, and all others interested, will be glad to know that we have been enabled to reproduce the Tribune Almanac for the years 1838 to 1868, inclusive-excepting 1842, in which year none was issued-comprehending the Politician's Register and the Whig Almanac, containing Annual Election Returns by States and Counties, lists of Presidents, Cabinets, Judges of the Supreme Court, Foreign Ministers, Governors of States, &c., with Summaries of Acts of Congress, and other Political Statistics. The following introduction to the volumes, by Mr. Greeley, more fully explains their scope:
"In the Fall of 1887-years before the establishment of THE TRIBUNE-the October Elections having developed a popular uprising against the Jackson-Van Buren dynasty which had for ten years seemed invincible-I was moved to issue a POLITICAL REGISTER for 1888, intended mainly to embody the Election Returns of that year, and compare them with those of some preceding year. The reception of that little annual was such as to justify its reproduction for each succeeding year -that of 1842 only excepted-until the issue for 1868 will complete a series of thirty annual registers of Election Returns, with other useful political and statistical matter, afforded for a trifle to each reader, though the preparation of each issue now involves a total cost of more than $1,000. This annual has been known successively as The Politician's Register, Whig Almanac, and Tribune Almanac, under which last name it has been issued for several years past. The stereotype plates of the earlier issues having been consumed in the fire which destroyed THE TRIBUNE building in 1845, it has for some years past been impossible to procure full sets of the work at any rate, and the imperfect sets from time to time thrown upon the market have commanded fabulous prices.
"At last the new art of PHOTO-LITHOGRAPHY-as yet in its infancy, but giving promise of great results in the future by no means distant-has rendered it possible to reproduce the old issues at a moderate cost; and it was resolved that a limited number of full sets of the work-at least, so far as its contents were not ephemeral-should be photo-lithographed and offered to the public. Of that resolve, the work herewith presented is the fruit. As it will be wholly unique, and of great interest to historians and politicians, I trust that most of the sets may be promptly secured for Public Libraries, where they may be preserved and remain generally accessible. Those who fail to obtain a set directly will probably miss their only opportunity. "HORACE GREELEY."
The complete sets of the Register and Almanac are comprised in two neatly bound volumes, aud are now ready. Price, for the two vols, $10. Those wishing to secure these interesting Political Statistics should send in their orders immediately, as only 1,000 conies are printed.
Each order must be accompanied with the cash. Address

THE GREAT REMEDY,
WHICH HAS BEEN
Favorably Known and Extensively
AND VICINITY FOR UPWARDS OF
MADAME ZADOC PORTER'S
CURATIVE COUGH BALSAM
Price 25, 50, & 75 Cents per Bottle.
The Best, Cheapest, and most effectual Remedy for Coughs, Colds, &c., the world has ever produced. Purely Vegetable, contains no MINERALS, or other DELETERIOUS DRUGS.
The CURATIVE BALSAM is Warranted, if used according to Directions, to CURE or RELIEVE in all cases,
COUGHS, COLDS, CROUP, WHOOPING COUGH, ASTHMA, AND ALL AFFECTIONS OF THE THROAT AND LUNGS.
Madame Zadoc Porter's Balsam is a purely Vegetable Expectorant, prepared with great care and scientific skill, from a combination of the best remedies the vegetable kingdom affords.
Its remedial qualities are based on its power to assist the healthy and vigorous circulation of the BLOOD through the LUNGS.
It enlivens the muscles and assists the skin to perform the duties of regulating the heat of the system, and in gently throwing off the waste substance from the surface of the body.
It loosens the phlegm, induces free spitting, and will be found
VERY AGREEABLE TO THE TASTE.
It is not a violent remedy, but emollient, warming, searching, and effective: can be taken by the oldest person or youngest child.
If you have a Cold, if ever so slight, do not fail to give the Balsam a trial, as the very low price at which it is sold brings it in the reach of every one, that they may always keep it convenient for use.
The timely use of a 25 cent bottle will often prove it to be worth one hundred times its cost. The 75 cent bottle is more profitable to the consumer, as it contains four times the quantity contained in the small bottle.
