Renewals have been coming in with some degree of briskness, especially considering the delay in getting out our last number, of volume VIII, and the disarrangement of the mails consequent upon the fearful weather we have had But many of our subscribers have not yet attended to this important matter, and we beg that they will do so at once. We must pay cash for our printing and meet other expenses promptly, and we are compelled, therefore, to adhere to our terms, which are strictly cash in advance. Where our friends notify us that they desire to continue their subscriptions, and will send the money at their early convenience we continue to send the Papers; but when we hear nothing from the subscriber we are reluctantly constrained to enforce our rule. Many of our subscribers, therefore (and some of them our best friends), will not receive this number until they attend to the small formality of fowarding $3 to “these Headquarters,” or notify us that they will do so soon. Please ask your neighbor if he has received his January number, and if he has not tell him about this paragraph.
