Sr. 0$kc of the Free Press, ) Aug. 22, 1828. 5 (QThis numbercommences the fifth volume' of the Free Press, the third since its location in Tarborough. At the conclusion of the third volume we ex pressed a hope, that we should be ena bled on commencing the fifth volume, to present the Free Press to its patrons in an enlarged and improved form; but we regret to state, that the "signs of the times" in our pecuniary horizon indi cate very plainly, that an increase of ex penditure in any business would be very imprudent at the present time, especial ly where an adequate return is merely problematical. Our expences at present are as much as we conveniently can manage, and the prospect is not suffi ciently encouraging to justify their increase. We are desirous to im prove our paper, and will embrace the first favorable opportunity for so doing that presents itself; until then we must beg the indulgence of its patrons. It will be recollected, that there is no ne cessity for a new subscription on the commencement of each volume, for those who are desirous to continue their support to the Free Press those who wish to discontinue will please give us notice to that effect. We have made a favorable alteration in our terms of pub lication, extending the time of the mid dle payment until the end of the sub scription year if the first payment is made within a few weeks of the com mencement of the year, it will be con sidered in advance. The terms, as mo dified, arc as follows: THE "FREE PRESS," By Geo. Howard, Is published weeklv, (every Friday,) at TWO DOLLARS per year, (or 52 num bers,) it" paid in advance Two Dollars if Fifty Cents, if paid within the subscription' jtar uim x vrcc xjouars ai me expiration ef the yearfor any period less than a year, Twenty-five Cents per month.

Long er ones at that rate for every 16 lines. Ad vertisements must be marked the number of insertions required, or they will be con tinued until otherwise ordered.
