NoS. 1,

The success which has attended the
labours of the Editor enables him at length
In part to accomplish his original design.
And accordingly the plan of publication
will be more enlarged and liberal, than the
uncertain result of such an undertaking
would have warranted, at the outset.
The terms originally were, publication
wace afortgkht, at three dolars per anpum,
with a right in the Editor, to convert it
into a wmeklypaper, at six dollars per an-
mim. It soon appeared probable, how-
ever, from its increasing circulation that
it could be afforded ative; and it was ap-
cordingly put at that sum.
The termination of the first half year
damped the hope of ultimate success,
very much. At the end of the 1year, how-
ever, I am in better spirits, because, du-
ring the last six months my subscription
list has been greatly increased; although
I have as yet no more than one subscri-
ber in the very federal and opulent town
of Boston.
The Examiner contains now eight hum-
dred and thirty6to pages good but close
print,ayear. I propose that itshalt contnina
hereafter, one thousandpages, to be divid-
ed into two volumes, of five hundred pa- I
ges each, with a complete index to each l
volume. Two volumes will entitle me to e
ak years pay, which will continue to be, I

sountry subscribers in advance ; and k  ,,
oity subscribers on the completion or tre,
first volume, of the year for which they
subscribe.                          1i
The contemplated enlargement will en. s,
able me to fill one hundred and sixty h

pages may contain, let him remem.ier, that
I have added them toplease mnwsdf. The
old establishment of sixteen pages a week
belongs to him; and if he has any fault to
find with them, he has a right so to do;f
and I will endeavour to bear his reproot
with fortitude.
To country subscribers, if I understand&
the rules of the Post-Otfice correctly,-the
additional pages, being in supplements,
the postage will not be increased; and as
the Post-Office duties are to be doubled,
as well no doubt to prevent the circula-
tion of newspapers, for profligacy and
tyranny always hate and strive to do-
stroy the free presses, as to raise money,
this circumstance is entitled to be men-
If I could afford 'it, the amount of pa.,
ges delivered in a year would be elevei
hundred. Then I could make the Exa-
miner a pqctJ record of the time. And
if I meet as much success, in the coming,
as I have in the past year, it shall be
To enable me to do this, apd at the
present price, more subscribers are neces-
sary. To obtain these, I venture to sug-
gest an expedient, which I suspect is per.
'ectly practicable with all -my subscribers
except the one in Boston. It is this: that
every subscriher, 1 now have out of New-
