QyTl lis numbercominences the
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, asmo
dified, are as follows:
