The Dispatch.

The increase in the cost of everything which goes to make up the newspaper makes it impossible to continue our present terms and publish a sheet which can reflect credit on the publishers and he gratifying to the reader. The present appearance and arrangement of the Dispatch is not at all agreeable to the editors, and cannot give satisfaction to the public. The better to accommodate it to the order of the day, and to improve it and increase its interest, we have determined to adopt the following as our table of rates:


Daily paper, per annum$8.00
Daily paper, six months5.00
Daily paper, three months3.00
Daily paper, one months1.00
Semi Weekly paper, per annum5.00
Newly Weekly paper, per annum3.00


One square, of eight lines, first insertion75 cis.
Each continuance50 cis.

These terms are not advanced in proportion to the general enhancement of everything. They will better accommodate the paper to the exigency of the times, and enable us to make such improvement in each of its departments as will be gratifying both to our readers and ourselves. These improvements will more than compensate for the moderate advance in our charges.
