The present number completes the fifth volume of the Signal. Fivc years have elapsed since we commenced the paper undcr the most oifficult auspices; and yet it haslived, been published every week, and obtained a general circulation. We have twice enlarged t 'n size, and sliould we hereafter prosper, we shall probably increaso ils dimensions still more. We mean to make sundry improvements in the next volume. We have sent for a supply of new type: we shall piiblisli more columns of reading matter as soon as our present advertisements expire; and also insert the Detroit Prices Current and Bank Note Table. In short, we shall use all availablc means to make the Signal the best paper in the State. For reasons we have before stated, the price henceforth will be$l,5Ã¼ in advance, or $2,00 wilhin the year. Al these rates, it will be as chenp as any paper in the State. The politica! course of the Signal will be the same as it has been. It will advocate the Abolition of Slavery as thegreat object of Political Action, paramount in importance to all others; and will bestow upon every question of public interest, either State or National, that degree of consideration to which ts merits seem to require. The position of the Signal oh these matlers will benot neutral hut independent. Under thete circumstances we trust that we shall part company with very few, if any of our subscribers, but continue toreceive the kind co-operation of our friends as n formor days; and we, in return, will do all tliat in us lies tL'$rnish thcm with a paper that shall not only be worth the subscriplion price, but will advocate, in all respects, the highest and best inieresls of the whole community. Maving stopped thus long, kind reader, Ão "define our position," we make our bow to you, and go ahead!
