THE NEW-YORK TRIBUNE FOR 1880. During the coming Presidential year THE TRIBUNE will be a more effective agency than ever for telling the rews best worth knowing, and for enforcing sound politics. From the day the war closed it has been most anxious for an end of sectional strife. But it saw two years ago, and was the first persistently to proclaim the new danger to the country from the revived alliance of the Solid South and Tammany Hall. Against that danger it sought to rally
THE OLD PARTY OF FREEDOM AND THE UNION It began by demanding the abandonment of personal dislikes, and set the ex ample. It called for an end to attacks upon each other instead of the enemy; and for the heartiest agreement upon whatever fit candidates the majority should put up against the common foe. Since then the tide of disaster has been turned back; every doubtful State has been won, and the omens for National victory were never more cheering. The Solid South aud its Northern allies favored Repudiation, and we have kept the Public Faith. They favored Inflation, and we have restored Specie Payments. They sought to break down the safeguards of the ballot-box, and we have maintained the election laws.
THE TRIBUNE'S POSITION.
Of THE TRIBUNE'S share in all this, those speak most enthusiastically who have seen most of the struggle. The Michigan State Committee officially urged the circulation of THE TRIBUNE as the best means of educating the voters and bringing out the vote. The Maine Republicans declared that no other agency made so many votes. Ohio, Pennsylvania and New-York teil the same story.
THE TRIBUNE is now spending more labor and money than ever before to hold the distinction it has long enjoyed of the largest circulation among the best people. It secured, and means to retain it, by becoming the medium of the Dest thought and the voice of the best conscience of the time, by keeping abreast of the highest progress, favoring the freest discussion, hearing all sides, appealing always to the best intelligence and the purest morality, and refusing to cater to the tastes of the vile or the prejudices of the ignorant.
The distinctive features of THE 1 RIBUNE are known to everybody. It gives all the news. It has the best correspondents, and retains them from year to year. It is the only paper that maintains a special telegraphic wire of its own between its office and Washington. Its use of the Ocean Cables during the coming year for foreign news will be more marked than ever. Its scientific, literary, artistic and religious intelligence is the fullest. Its book reviews are the best. Its commercial and financial news is the most exact. Its type is the largest; and its arrangemeat the most systematic.
The Semi-Weekly Tribune
is by far the most successful Semi-Weekly in the country, having four times the circulation of any other in New-York. It is specially adapted to the large class of intelligent, professional or business readers too far from New-York to depend on our papers for the daily news, who nevertheless want the editorials, correspondence, book reviews, scientific matter, lectures, literary miscellany, etc., for which THE TRIBUNE is famous. Like THE WEEKLY it contains sixteen pages, and is in convenient form for binding.
The Weekly Tribune remains the great favorite of our substantial country population. It revises and condeuses all the news of the week into readable shape. Its agricultural department is more carefully conducted than ever, and it has always been considered the best. Its market reports have long been the recognized authority on cattle, grain and general country produce. There are special departments for the young, and for household interests; the new handiwork department, already extremely popular, gives unusually accurate and comprehensive instructions in knitting, crocheting, and kindred subjects; while poetry, fiction and the humors of the day are all abundantly supplsed. THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE is now so arranged as to make two complete and separate papers of eight pages each, the first containining the news and politics; the second, the correspondence, fiction, poetry, household departments, etc. Both sides of the family can thus enjoy the paper at the same time. The verdict of the tens of thousands of old readers who have returned to it during the past year is that they find it better than ever. Increasing patronage and facilities enable us to reduce the rates to the lowest point we have ever touched, and to offer the most amazing premium yet given.

NOTE. In the table above it is to be understood that the word "near" and the character (conjunction) are synonymous, and mean that the two bodies are nearest each other at the time expressed, and that they are then on a line running from the North Pole through both bodies, and have the same right ascension. GR. ELON. means greatest elongation or greatest apparent angular distance from the SUN. STATIONARY means that the planet is then without apparent motion east or west with respect to the Stars, and is about to move in a direction contrary to that it last had. The character 8 indicates that the planet is opposite the Sun, or 180 deg., or a half circle east of it, and rises when the Sun sets, and sets when he rises. When a planet is a quarter of a circle or co deg. from the Sun, east or west, it is known by .
PLANETARY CHARACTERS.- Mercury, Venus, & Mars, 24 Jupiter, Saturn, H Uranus, Neptune, Moon.
The above table enables us to find the planets throughout the year.
MERCURY will be at stations favorable for being visible March 3, July 1, October 22, being then in the east just before sunrise; also January 15, May 8, September 4, and December 29, being then low in the west soon after sunset. The planet is brightest at these times. VENUS will be brightest January 17 and March 30. MARS not coming to the opposition this year, will not be brightest. JUPITER brightest December 13, rising at sunset. SATURN brightest June 16, rising at sunset.
To Ascertain the Length of the Day and Night,
at any time of the year, add 12 hours to the time of the Sun's setting, and from the sum subtract the time of rising, for the length of the day. Subtract the time of setting from 12 hours, and to the remainder add the time of rising next morning, for the length of the night. These rules are equally true for apparent time.
Leap-Year.-Every year the number of which is divisible by 4 without a remainder, is a leap-year, except the last year of the century, which is a leap-year only when divisible by 400 without a remainder. Thus the year 1900 will not be a leap-year.
MOON.-Lowest, 1st, 28th; apogee, 9th; perigee, 21st; highest, 16th.
From the WEEKLY TRIBUNE, Oct. 6, 1869. We are glad to call attention to a roofing material for which no extravagant claims are made, and which is now well known in nearly all parts of the country.
The manufacturer has for nearly twelve years devoted his attention to the improvement of cheap Roofing materials, and his recent improvements in the use of the indestructible fibrous mineral Asbestos are without doubt cf great value. The Tribune Buildings have been covered some two years with the Asbestos Roofing, which seems in every way a satfactory material for the purposes intended.-Eds. Tribune.

This wonderful mineral, which is now attracting the attention of scientific men in all parts of the world on account of its peculiar qualities-it being fibrous like silk, and capable of being woven into cloth, which is indestructible by fire-is now manufactured into a roofing material, which is rapidly superseding tin, &c., on account of its cheapness, and the facility with which it can be applied by any one.
The Tribune Buildings and thousands of others throughout the country have been covered with it during the past few years.
MR. H. W. JOHNS, No. 78 William Street, corner of Liberty, N. Y., who is well known as one of the oldest and largest manufacturers of roofing materials, is the inventor and manufacturer, and will furnish descriptive circulars and any desired information relative to its use.
