PREFACE. 



In putting forth the Ameeican Newspaper Directory for 1873, but little 
prefatory remark is necessary. The book is itself a preface — a preface to the 
great world of American journalism. In this record of the press of the United 
States and of Canada for 1873, the wants of the advertiser, the business man, 
and all who have occasion to make use of it, have been met as in other years. 
No effort has been spared to make the work as perfect as it was possible to 
make it. 

Of the general aspects of journalism it may be said that it has never been in 
so prosperous a condition, financially, as at this time. A considerable number of 
our journals have built large and handsome newsj)aper establishments within 
the past year, and a large number of others have been projected, while many 
of the smaller but equally persevering journals have been placed upon a stronger 
basis than hitherto, and are in other respects improved. 

It has been observed that our journalism has taken a higher tone and a 
wider entei-jjrise. To those who see the matter closely, it is apparent that this 
is the case, and that with its increasing strength there is a controlling sense 
of dignity in the Press of America, which is fitting to its development and to 
the large interests in its care. 

In looking over the field, some of the differences observed between the figures 
of the journalism of 1872 and of 1873 are in many respects more apparent than 
real. But there are other differences between the figures of this year and of last 
year which fully indicate a decided advancement in the business of newspaper- 
making — such advancement as, having sprung from natural increase in popula- 
tion and resources, and the expenditure of time, labor and capital, becomes of 
permanent value to the intellectual and business world. 

The aggregate number of periodicals now published in the United States is 
6,768, of which 627 are daily,. 95 tri- weekly, 98 semi- weekly, 5,099 weekly, 23 bi- 
weekly, 86 semi-monthly, 672 monthly, 9 bi-monthly, 59 quarterly. In 1872 the 
whole number of periodicals in the United States was 6,432, of which 507 were 
issued daily, 105 tri-weekly, 110 semi-weekly, 4,750 weekly, 21 bi-weekly, 91 
semi-monthly, 685 monthly, 4 bi-monthly, and 55 quarterly. In the Territories 
we had an aggregate of 87, 18 of which were daily, and in the Dominion of 



8 PREFACE. 

Canada and the Britisli Colonies were issued 403 periodicals of all classes. In 
1871 the whole number was 5,983, showing an increase in 1872 of 449 over 1871, 
and an increase in 1873 over 1872 of 336. 

In the Territories there are, in all, 107 periodicals, showing an increase of 20 
over last year. In the Dominion of Canada there were this year published 387 
periodicals, to the 374 of last year, and the British Colonies have 29, being pre- 
cisely the same number recorded for them last year. 

The total, complete, of the periodicals published in the United States, the 
Territories, the Dominion of Canada and the British Colonies, is therefore 7,291 
in the current year, being an increase of 369 over the 6,922 periodicals of 1872. 

In order that those interested in the matter may make such comparisons as 
may be desired, we have printed the tables of last year together with those 
of 1873. 

It is a remarkable fact, and one of the best evidences of the prosperity of 
American journalism, that of this increase of 369 periodicals, more than one- 
third was caused by the publication of new daily papers, 125 of these having 
been issued during the past year. It will be observed, too, that the increase 
of weeklies has been large, there being 337 new weekly journals, or weeklies 
that have changed from semi or tri-weekly. But even with this advance the 
remarkable increase in daily papers is made still more prominent, from the fact 
that the number of new daily papers (369) exceeds, by 32, the number of new 
weekly papers. 

On the other hand, it is noticeable that while the daily, weekly and monthly 
periodicals have been giving the best evidence of their prosperity, the tri and 
semi-weeklies and bi-monthlies have fallen behind, while in bi-weeklies the 
whole increase for the year has been but five. It rests, therefore, upon the 
highest authority that, although there may be some special cases of exception 
semi and tri-weeklies and semi and bi-monthlies are not, as a rule, popvilar with 
American readers. 

Although the nimiber of journals published in a given locality, and the rate 
at which they increase numerically, must always be received in evidence of the 
condition of newspaper enterprise in a designated place, such evidence must be 
used with caution and in connection with other considerations, when compara- 
tive estimates are to be made of the state of journalism in sections which are 
subject to certain conditions not applicable to the section with which comparison 
is made. In New England, for example, journalism would not seem to a casual 
observer of the statistics to be progressing as rapidly as it really is, while in 
some other sections it may appear to be advancing more rapidly than is in reality 
the case ; the reason being that in long-settled localities the tendency is rather 
to consolidate, to improve and to enlarge the old, than to experiment with new 



PREFACE. 



enterprises. There may be in the older sections a very large accession of capital 
in the business, which a cursory glance would not show nor statistics reveal, 
while one -half the amount of capital placed in new ground, where money 
increases rapidly, would, if devoted solely to the creation of new entei'prises, 
appear at first sight to be a larger increase in both capital and enterprise, than 
employed in a section using double of the one and at least as much as the other. 

The largest increase of the year, in number and prosperity, lies this year, as 
it did last year, in the rich central section of country bounded by the Ohio and 
Mississippi rivers and the great chain of lakes. Increasing wealth, a growing 
density in population, and abundant natural and artificial advantages have 
encouraged and supported large additions to and improvements in the journalism 
of that section. 

Marked improvements are also to be observed in the Middle States, while 
the far West shows almost as large an increase as in the preceding year. The 
South shows a larger increase in numbers than might be expected in a year not 
remarkable for new enterprises in journalism. Texas shows a list of 154 
journals, an increase of 21 over the 133 of last year. 

As a whole, it may be said that the tendency of the year has been rather to 
enlarge and improve the newspapers ah-eady established, and to make them 
stronger and better, than to create those new and ephemeral periodicals which 
seem projected with the aim of taking their chances of life, but without any 
strong conviction that they were either necessary or desirable. 

With these few observations, we leave the American Newspaper Direc- 
tory for 1873 with the press and public. 



It will be observed that the Directory for 1873 has been prefaced by a short 
sketch of our early journalism. The matter given relates almost wholly to such 
matters of interest as could be gathered from authentic sources relating to our 
early newspapers.

A SKETCH OF THE GROWTH OF JOURNALISM 



IN" THE XJNITEr> STj^TES. 



No people are equal to Americans In their appreciation ot newspapers, and, as a conse 
quence no country is better supplied with them. The traveler cannot, by public conveyance, 
penetrate any wilderness whose people may not point with local pride to the office of thei r 
newspaper. That this is a matter for congratulation, there can be no doubt. The printing-press 
cannot better perform its part in the work of civilization than by recording the work of to-day— 
to do so is to prepare for the labor of to-morrow. 

In its early days, however, the press was considered in any but a philosophical light. Its 
writers scarcely knew, in fact, that in promoting the ends of commerce by quotations and com- 
parisons of prices they wei-e advancing the country toward its high destiny. 

The newspaper is the exclusive literature of a considerable class of Americans. There are 
many men who would pass for being well-informed, if not well-educated— who would be consid" 
ered to have knowledge if not wisdom, but whose reading never goes beyond newspapers; 
who never buy a book, and who would be surprised at a question concerning the state of their 
library. It is true that many of those who have libraries seldom think of reading books. But 
the rule holds that very many persons depend for all literary food upon periodical literature, 
and that it has in consequence, grown to proportions that could not have been suspected by 
those who published our first newspapers. 

It is probable that newspapers will always be popular with Americans. They are suited to 
the character of the people. They are the guardians of their liberties, their instructors and their 
companions, they but echo and repeat their opinions, and often ably defend them. They are 
useful, too, in business or in pleasure, and the tremendous growth of journalism in the United 
States can hardly be wondered at when we consider how perfect a repository of all that can by 
possibility be recorded, the American newspaper has become. 

Under the fostering care and protection of our liberal institutions, with the education of the 
masses, the pressure of great enterprises and the needs of trade and commerce, our journalism 
has become a power which on this continent would cause the desires of any would-be 
usurper of our liberties, to roll up like a scroll and pass away. "A journalist," said the great 
Napoleon, " a giver of advice, a regent of sovereigns, a tutor of nations. Four hostile news- 
papers are more to be feared than a hundred thousand bayonets." Thomas Jefferson said : " I 
would rather live in a country with newspapers and without a government, than in a country 
with a government but without newspapers." David Hume, too, perceived the connection of 
newspapers with the liberties of the people, for he says : " Its liberties and the liberties of the 
people must stand or fall together." 

A good newspaper press makes books less necessai-y because it gives their substance. Heni-y 
Ward Beecher says : "The newspaper is an ever-unfolding encyclopedia; an unbound book 
forever issuing and never finished." When we think of the arms of a great journal stretched 
to the ends of the earth, gathering in everything of importance and sending the matter forth 
again to parts yet unacquainted with the history of the day, we must put the press, as a source 
of information, above all other classes of literature. Thackeray appreciates its power and 
its comprehensiveness where he says : "There she is; she never sleeps. She has her am- 
bassadors in every quarter of the world— her couriers upon every road. Her oflicers march along 
with armies, and her envoys walk into statesmen's cabinets. They are ubiquitous. Yonder 
journal has an agent this moment giving bribes at Madrid, and another inspecting the price of 
potatoes at Covent Garden." 

Since newspapers have become recognized in America as being of the very highest 
social, political and commercial importance, their growth has been extraordinary. At the start, 
however, it will be seen that newspapers, though they certainly proved of value to the countr>' 
in the gaining of its independence, were by no means so advantageously used as they might hav(! 
been. Their capacity for usefulness was in fact hardly understood, while our facilities for 
newspaper-making was small. In the following pages will be found some details concerning 
the early days of journalism in the United States : — 



16 SKETCH OF THE GROWTH OF JOURNALISM. 

The first newspaper printed in America was published by Benjamin Harris, Boston, Septem- 
ber '25th, 1690, under the general name, if indeed it was meant for a title, of Puhlick Occurrences . 
Though printed on an imported press, with foreign type and paper, it seems to have borrowed 
little else from foreign sources. Journalism, perhaps from the fact that intei-national communi- 
cation was so limited for lack of transit, and that we seldom saw standards of good work, or 
borrowed in any sense, or in reality needed or asked for it, seems to have originated in America, 
from a germ of its own, and owed its growth to itself, and not to foreign influence. It gave us an 
original press; we grew faster and went further, and made up in original characteristics what 
we may, in the earlier days of journalism, have lacked in good work, mechanical or intellectual 
But Benjamin Harris' Puhlick Occurrences had very little significance beyond the fact that it was 
our first paper, for it lived but twenty -four hours. It touched upon local matters and " con- 
tained refiections of a very high nature; " so It, the first paper published in America, was ruth- 
lessly squelched by the enlightened authorities. But the matter was started. It may be added 
of this immortal journal of a day, that only one copy of it is known to have been preserved. 
That copy was discovered by the historian of Salem, the Kev. C. B. Felt, in the Colonial State- 
paper oflice in London, while engaged in researches relating to the history of his own city. 
The paper was printed by Richard Pierce, on three pages of a folded sheet, leaving one page 
blank, with two columns to a page, and each page about eleven inches by seven in size. Harris 
proposed to issue his paper once a month, or oftener, if there should be a " glut of occurrences." 
It seems that the legislative authority solemnly determined that the paper came out contrary 
to law, and to prevent Mr. Harris from issuing a second number, they forbade " anything in print 
without license first obtained from those authorized by the government to grant the same." 

In 1700 were published in Boston and New York certain religious pamphlets, which 
drew out replies, also printed. It was a battle with paper bullets that did its part toward 
cleai'ing the atmosphere for a regular publication. Then came the news-letters, written and 
sent out by friends and business men, describing important occurrences, and as importa- 
tions increased and the want of news was more and more felt, the English papers came in such 
quantity as made us used to them. These circumstances, with many others, led the way, and at 
last, in 1704, we had our first regular newspaper. John Campbell was postmaster of Boston, and 
the actual news-vender of the city. He saw the opportunity and had gained experience in a 
good school. On the 24th of April, 1704, he published the first number of the i?osio7t Netcs-Letter. 
It created no little excitement. The first sheet was taken damp from the press by Chief Justice 
Sewall to show President Willard of Harvard University, as a curiosity. It was published 
weekly, and would take advertisements " at a reasonable rate, at from twelve pence to five shil- 
lings, and not to exceed." There were none, of course, in the first number. It was printed by 
Bartholomew Gi-een, "a member in good standing" of the Old South Church. It lived 72 years. 
It is said that it might be living to-day were it not that on the approach of the Revolution it 
took the Tory side. One complete file is in existence, and is in the library of the New York His- 
torical Society. Its imprint was : " Boston : Printed by B. Greene. Sold by Nicholas Boone, at 
his shop near the Old Meeting House." At this time Boston had a population of 8,000. 

Our first newspapers were founded to some extent on English models, though as before 
stated, their literai-y contents were in all respects original after the point was reached where 
they could claim that they were really " news" papers. The News-Letter was a partial imitation 
of what was then called the London Gazet, and at first, was often a mere transcript of it. The 
chief end of the newspaper in its early days, seems to have been to give date of shipping 
and the prices current. It is a fact of some interest that the first regularly published American 
newspapers contained a creditable number of items. If they wei-e mostly of the commercial 
sort, they certainly paved the way for the political, social, scientific and literary writings which 
fill the newspapers of to-day. The first number issued contained a notice of the arrival of sev- 
eral vessels, gave an account of the state of health of passengers and crews, announced the kind 
of cargoes they carried, and stated the length of each passage, and such short items of news as 
could be had from the oflicers of the vessels. The same number refers to a sermon preached by 
Rev. Mr. Pemberton, from the excellent text : "And do your own business" — thus giving us 
our first " religious intelligence" in our first newspaper, and notes with appropriate comments 
the death of some men of local prominence. We have besides some important news from the 
cities of New York and Philadelphia, and other items from the States of Rhode Island, Connecti- 
cut and Maryland. There were no advertisements of any kind, however, except the ordinary 
prospectus or announcement of the proprietor, which were then called advertisements, but are 
not now properly so named. 

For fifteen years the Xews-Letter had no rival or contemporary whatever. Yet even then the 
Ijublisher of our first paper had a hard time of it. Appeals for aid were often made to the public, 
but it seems with little practical effect. There are some characteristics of the old-time press 
which curiously resemble those of the newspapers of our own time. For instance, the question 
of cii-culation comes up, and the publisher replies to it as follows in the News-Letter of August 
10th, 1719: 

'• And in regard the Undei'taker [publisher] had not suitable encouragement, even to print 
half a Sheet Weekly, seeing that he cannot send 300 at an Impression, tho' some ignorantly con- 
cludes he Sells upwards of a Thousand ; far less is he able to print a Sheet every other Week with-

out an AcUlition of 4, (5 or 8 shillings a Year, as every one thinks fit to give Qiiarterlj-, which will 
only help to pay for Press and Paper, giving his Labor nothing." 

In 1719 Campbell was removed from the post-offlce, and his successor, Wm. Brooker, inaugu- 
rated a rival papei% the Boston Gazette, the second newspaper printed in America. The new 
paper was printed on a half sheet of " foolscap." It soon commenced a war with the Xeu-s- Letter. 
The Gazette was printed by James Franklin, and lasted until 1741, when it was merged into the 
A^ew England W<'ekhj Journal. 

The third newspaper of the United States, started in Philadelphia, December 22d, 1719, was 
named the American Weekly Mercurtj. The paper was printed and sold by Andrew Bradford at 
the Bible in the Second Street, and .John Copson in the High Street. Bradford was the postmaster 
in Philadelphia, and a son of the same William Bradford, the first printer south of Boston, who 
was born in l(jfi3. died in 17.52, and was buried in Trinity Church Yard, New York, where the gi-ave- 
stone may yet be seen. 

So it appears that America is indebted to three postmasters, two in Boston and one in 
Philadelphia, for its first three journals. 

In the Merciirt/, Benjamin Franklin wrote a series of articles, over the signature of Busy 
Body, but it was on the 7th of August, 1821, that the Franklins came into the world of journal- 
ism to become famous. It was at that time, that James Franklin, having lost the printing of the 
Gazette, in Boston, came out with a new paper, the fourth American newspaper, which he named 
the Xew Hampshire Courant. The Courant commenced at once to be lively, by calling Campbell's 
paper— the A'"eifs-Ze<<er, and first of American papers — " a dull vehicle of intelligence." Then 
commenced a war, which greatlj- helped the Franklins by advertising and bringing them into 
notice. The Courant is scarce, even for an ancient journal, so we can judge but meagerly of it 
real animus. One of its claims to distinction will be its introduction of the elements of life 
vigor and boldness into the American press. 

The Xeics-Letter had a long career. In 17.57 we find it still alive, with an increasing income 
on account of some accession to its advertising patronage. Its editor at this time, John Draper 
died in 17(;2, and was succeeded by his son, Richard Draper, who changed its title to Weekly 
Xeios-Letter artel Neio England Chronicle. The name was again changed to the Massachtisetts Gazette 
and Boston Afeio.5-Ze/!<er, going downwards, apparently, with each change, until the respectable old 
journal touched bottom by a mongrel union with the Boston Post Boy, which effectually dulled 
its influence. In 1769 the papers were separated, and John Draper taking it up again, published 
it until March, 1776, when, with the evacuation of Boston by the British troops, the News-Letter , 
after a life of seventy-two years, ceased to exist. 

To return to the Courant, the second paper in Boston, and the fourth in America. Benjamin 
Franklin, who felt his strengtli with the public so fully in his connection with the Courant, as, no 
doubt, to encourage him to higher endeavors, was employed by his brother, James, the proprie- 
tor of the paper, as carrier-, etc. His first contributions were anonymous. The following 
extract from his biography tells the circumstances as well as they can be told : " He (James 
Franklin) had some ingenious men among his friends, who amused themselves by writing little 
pieces for his paper, which gained it credit, and made it more in demand, and these gentlemen 
often visited us. Hearing their conversation, and their accounts of the approbation their papers 
were received with, I was excited to try my hand among them. But, being still a boy, and sus- 
pecting that my brother would object to printing anything of mine in his paper, if he knew it 
to be mine, I contrived to disguise my hand, and, writing an anonymous paper, I put it at night 
under the door of the printing-house. It was found in the morning, and communicated to his 
writing friends when they called in as usual. They read it, commented on it in my hearing, and 
I had the exquisite pleasure of finding it met with their approbation, and that, in their different 
guesses at the author, none were named but men of some character among us for learning and 
ingenuity. I suppose that I was rather lucky in my judges, and that they were not really so very 
good as I then believed them to be. Encouraged, however, by this attempt, I wrote and sent in 
the same way to the press several other pieces, that were equally approved ; and I kept my 
secret until all my fund of sense for such performances was exhausted, and then disclosed it, 
when I began to be considered a little more by my brother's acquaintances. However, that did 
not quite please him, as he thought it tended to make me too vain. This might be one occasion 
of the differences we began to have about this time." The paper offended the politicians, and 
James was arrested. During his confinement, Benjamin took his place, and as he, himself, says^ 
"gave the authorities some hard rubs in it." His brother was at last discharged, with the order 
that " James Franklin no longer print the newspaper called The Neio England Courant.'" The 
order was evaded by making Benjamin the printer instead of James, and the paper kept on for 
several months. It was on the 11th of Febmary, 1722, that Benjamin Franklin, not yet twenty^ 
assumed this responsibility. The staff of the Co2irant were bold and original, so much so, as to 
receive the name of the Hell-Fire Club, from the Mathers, who had much to do in ruling reli- 
gious Boston at that time. 

Xew York printed its first original newspaper in 1725. Govenior Fletcher induced William 
Bradford to leave Philadelphia and establish the printing office in New York, which was to print 
its first newspaper, the New York Gazette. He was seventy years of age when the enteriirise was 
undertaken. WUliam Bradford was the fourth printer in America, being preceded by Stephen

Daye in Cambridge, Mass., in 16.38, by Samuel Green in the same town in l!>40,and by John Foster 
in Boston, 1675. Bradford established a printing-press in Philadelphia in 1687. He published a sheet 
almanac there in the same year and made preparations to print the first Bible in the English 
language in America, somewhere about the year 1688. He offered " inducements to subscribers," 
and may be called the first publisher iu this country who ever did so. But his inducements were 
neither " chromos " nor " strawberry plants." William Bradford died at the age of 92 years, on 
the 2.3d of May, 1752, and his gravestone may now be seen in Trinity churchyard, where he was 
buried. The New York Historical Society, the municipal authorities, the Members of Trinity 
Church, and most of the eminent men of the metropolis united in May, 1863, on the two hundredth 
anniversary of his birth, to do honor to the name and to commemorate the services of the first 
printer and first editor of New York. 

In 1728 another paper— the second in that city— appeared in Philadelphia. It carried the terse 
uame Universal Instructor in all the Arts and Sciences, and Pennsylvania Gazette. The people of those 
days senied to think that they did not receive the full value of their subscription-money if their 
paper did not come to them with a long title. The old Johnsonian influence of verbal pompos- 
ity, too, was j-et alive and potent. In early newspaper times the chief object seemed to lie in 
getting long names for newspapers. To-day, odd, and in some cases outrageous names excite 
the ambition of those in the profession who delight in startling head-lines and are nothing if not 
smisational. It was published by Samuel Keimer, who sold it at a very low price to Benjamin 
Franklin, after three-quarters of a year. This was Franklin's first independent attempt to 
make a paper. He showed his good sense at once by immediately condensing the title to 
Pennsylvania Gazette. This was on the 28th of September, 1729, and under that name he continued 
its publication until 1765. During this period he was engaged in setting up other printing oflSces 
and was pursuing his experiments in electricity. On one occasion he was accused of printing 
vulgar communications. His replj' was "diaiihanous." " My friends," said be, to his self-con- 
stLtuted censors, " any one who can subsist upon sawdust pudding and water, as I can, needs 
no man's patronage." In 1748, David Hall, a Scotchman, became his partner, and carried on the 
establishment till his deatli, in 1772. On the 3d of November, 1815, it was merged with the North 
American. Thus ended the career of Franklin's Gazette, after a life of one hundred and seven- 
teen years. 

Maryland came forward with the next paper, another Gazette, published by Wm. Parks, in the 
year 1727, at Annapolis, and was continued until 1736. 

The year 1731 found another paper in Boston, the Weeldy l!ehearsal,hy Jeremy Gridley. At the 
end of two years it was purchased, August 1, 1735, by Thos. Fleet, and became the Boston Evening 
Post. It was well-conducted and became popular. At his death the paper was continued bj^ his 
sons until 1775, when it suspended. 

The New York Weekly Journal, the second paper in that city, appeared next in order, November 
5th, 1733, and was published by John Peter Zenger. Zenger was a good printer, was considerable 
of a scholar, and many circumstances conspired to make him a famous editor in his day. He 
was a man, too, of taste and varied culture, and is credited with having imported the first piano- 
forte ever brought to America. The Journal was a small sheet, and was printed on well-worn 
pica type. It often contained advertisements, though it seldom had more than four or five of 
them In any single issue. The following, describing some of the virtues of Orange Countj' but- 
ter, is one of the " curious advertisements of the day : " "fjl To be sold by Peter Lynch, near der 
Rutgers' Brewhouse, very good Orange Butter. It is excellent for Gentlewomen to comb up 
their hair with. It also cui-es children's sore heads." The Journal was a political paper, opposed 
to Bradford's Gazette. It was bitter against the authorities. Hence, in 1734, the first libel 
suit in America. But this did not stop the paper, and its proprietor, though imprisoned, was 
undaunted. Alexander Hamilton was engaged to defend Zenger, and amid great excitement 
secured a verdict of '-Not Guilty." The Journal was ably-enough conducted, but then, as now 
dollars were hard to get from subscribers, while unlike to-daj', advertisements were scarce. So 
in 17.52, the Journal, after an appeal to debtors for monej- or provisions, or both, was starved out 
of existence. The Gazette , the Journal's rival, continued until 1742. 

The first paper in IJhode Island, was yet another Gazette, and was issued in Newport, on 
the 27th September, 1732, by James Franklin, who, after his failure in Boston, and his severe 
persecution there by the authorities hoped to get some of that rest and quiet which he so greatlj' 
needed. But Newport was not at that time so well able to support newspapers as it is to-day_ 
]t had no summer season to depend upon, and advertisers were neither verj^ plentiful nor very 
liberal in their support. The Gazette did not survive three months, and Franklin died in 1736, 
It contained no advertisements at all, and only twelve numbers of the paper are known to have 
been published. The secon<l paper published in Rhode Island, the Newport Mercury, or Weekly Ad. 
vertiser, though not issued until the j'ear 1758, may be spoken of here., as it was published by the 
son of the James Franklin who had printed the Courunt in Boston in 1721, and who was so unsue. 
cessful with the Newport Gazette, in 1732. It was on the 12th of June, in 1758, tliat this son, also 
named James Franklin, started the Newport Mercury, another of the papers destined to record 
the hundredth anniversary of our independence. It was a seven-by-nine sheet, with a wood-cut 
rei)resenting Mercury, messenger of the gods, flj-ing over a body of water on which floated a 
ship protected by a fort. In 1866, the Mercury, in giving a sketch of its remarkable history. 



SKETCH OF THE GROWTH OF JOURNALISM. 19 

<lescribefl its initial number as follows : " It was about the size of a letter sheet, containing 
■eight columns three and a half inches wide and twelve inches in length. For a frontispiece, it 
showed a ship leaving the harbor, a fortiflcation in the rear, with a British flag flying, and a figure 
of Mercury flying through the air, holding in his hand a package, signifying that he was a news- 
carrier. Six colunms were devoted to news. Charles Handy, Joseph Gardner, .Sarah Osborne 
George Hazard, Job AUuy, William Stephens, lienjamin Wilbur, Mary Tate, Christopher Ellery , 
and Gideon and John Wanton occupied the other columns with advertisements. These names 
are handed down as having the honor of being Rhode Island's first advertisers. James Franklin, 
himself, too, was among them, reserving two-thirds of a column in order to proclaim the contents 
of •' Poor Richard's Almanac for 1759." He evidently understood something about his busi- 
ness. In one instance he made the announcement that he had received a new font ot type from 
England, and that he hoped in the next four months to bring up the arrears of foreign news. 
This font of type was presented to him by his uncle, Benjamin Franklin, who thus made his 
brother James " ample amends for the service " he had " deprived him of by leaving him so 
early." Young E'ranklin left Newport sometime afterwards, and the paper was continued by 
his mother, Mrs. Ann Franklin, under her own name. It was subsequently sold to Solomon 
Southwick, who continued it until the Revolution. In Hudson's valuable publication— The His- 
torj- of Journalism in the United States— from which we have excerpted much interesting mat- 
ter concerning our early newspapers, the following statement is made concerning the " original" 
])rinting-press used by the Fi'anklins, in Boston : "The press on which the elder James Frank- 
lin and his brother Benjamin Franklin, so often worked in Boston remained in the Mercury office 
over one hundred years. In 1S.5'J it was sold to John B. Murray, Esq., he agreeing to place it in 
the Patent Office at Washington or some equally public and safe place, the desire being to insure 
its preservation for future generations, as the first press on which Benjamin Franklin worked. 
Mr. Murray decided in 1864. to present it to the Massachusetts Charitable Mechanics' Associa- 
tion on the one hundred and fifty-eighth anniversay of the birthday of Franklin. Tlie press will 
be recognized as tlie original of the front panel of the Franklin statue in front of the City Hall, 
in School street, Boston. Another press on which Franklin worked in London, in 17-25-6, was 
obtained by Mr. Murray, in 1S41, and placed in the Patent Office at Washington." Besides these 
presses mentioned bj' Mr. Hudson, there is still another in the rooms of the New York Typo- 
graphical Society, which has been preserved there for many years, and said to be the one on which 
Franklin worked for a considerable time while in Boston. The latter is a press of English con. 
struction, as it is probable were also the others. The title page of the Newport Mercury, it may 
be stated in conclusion, now bears the inscription : "Established by Franklin, A. D., 1758." 

The Southern Press ai'ose with the South Carolina Chronicle, published in Cliarleston, by Thos. 
"W'hitemarsh, on the 8th of January, 1731. Virginia then came forward with the Virginia Gazette t 
published at Wlliamsburg, in 1736, and then it suspended for a short time, but was afterwards 
revived and continued until the Revolution. 

Carrier's addresses appeared in the Revolutionary period, and appear to have been the in. 
vention of WUliam Bradford, then publishing the Journal, in Philadelphia. The first one was 
published in 1776, and bore the inscription : 

THE NEW YEARS' VERSES 

of 

The Printer's Lads who carry the Pe.vnsilvaxia Journal 

To THE Customers. 

Philadelphia, January 1, 1776. 

The Almanac, a much more useful article, has taken its place. 

The newspaper publishers, after establishing journals in seven of the Colonies seem to have 
been quiet for a period of about ten years. Then appeared the New York Evening Post, published 
by Henry de Forest, in 1746 — a paper which lived but about a year. Two German papers had 
ineanwhile been issued in Pennsylvania— one in Germantown, in 1730, and the other in Philadel- 
phia, in 1743. 

Then came the Revolutionary Press, few in number, but strong in principle and vigorous in 
action. The Independent Advertiser oi Samuel Adams, Boston, started in 1748, the New York Mer- 
cury in 1752. Then we hear of the Boston Gazette and Weekly Advertiser, started in 1753, and printed 
by Samuel Kneeland. It lived but two years. Then came the true organ of the revolutionary 
policy of 1775. This was the Boston Gazette and Country Gentleman, published by Edes & Gill 
(p.9,105.) The first number made its appearance on the 7th of April, 1755. The Boston Gazette 
was printed on two pages folio, on a crown half-sheet. An Indian with his bow and arrow, and 
a representation of Brittania liberating a bird, confined by a cord, to the arms of France, were 
the devices chosen for its frontispiece. The Connecticut Ga^ei^e, published in New Haven, ap- 
peared in the same year. Jonathan Mayhew, James Otis, John Adams, Joseph Warren, Thomas 
Gushing, Samuel Dexter, Oxenbridge Thatcher and Samuel Cooper wrote for the Gazette. They 
were the Sons of Liberty of Massachusetts. In 1760 the Gazette struck out its device ''Brit. 
tania," and used Minerva holding the Spear and Liberty Cap— with her right hand she opens a 
cage, out of which flies a bird toward the Tree of Liberty. This was significant enough of the 
state of feeling ten years before the Boston massacre, and fifteen before the Battle of Concord . 



•20 SKETCH OF THE GROWTH OF JOURNALISM. 

One day a communication appeared in the Boston Gazette, which was traced to Benj. Austin, Jr. 
He was discovered, and liis active and able assistance was secured for the cause of Liberty. 

Xo American can read without emotion the simple, stern facts of the Boston massacre, as 
described in the Gazette oilsl&VQ\x 5th. 1770, while the account of the destroying of the tea in Boston 
Harbor, given with the terse and solid expressions of men who mean what they say, though what 
they say is treason to tyranny for the cause of freedom, and is punishable with death, strike the 
hearts of those who live in these softer days of rhetoric, with an emotion that is sweet and 
strong and healthy, but which cannot be described. So, as we separate one by one in the 
crumblings, these little blackened, stained evidences of patriotism, vouchers for noble deeds, we 
feel that every woi"d is golden, and are glad once more to have this great art of printing that it 
may record these noble words and noble deeds of our early heroes. 

In the year 1775, John Adams wrote a series of articles for the Gazette, over the signature of 
" Xovauglus." The paper continued it scourse, though with varying ability and success, but its in- 
fluence on American journalism was certainly marked at that time, while its bold, revolutionary 
spirit is felt to this day. The office of the Gazette was the headquarters of the leading Revolu- 
tionarj^ spirits of tlie time. It was there they met in council, marked out their policy and ar- 
ranged the measures to be announced in the bold columns of their immortal little journal. 
Another place of rendezvous for these fearless writers in the cause of liberty was a small build- 
ing in Milk street, near the Old South Church. A part of the building was occupied by Samuel 
Shed, as a g^ocerJ^ His parlor was the place of meeting. Benjamin Edes and John Gill the pub- 
lishers of the Boston Gazette, were both courageous and inflexible men. They knew no fear 
and could not be turned from their purpose. The Stamp Act, tlie Boston Massacre, the Tea-tax, 
the Letters of Governor Hutchinson, the closing of the Port of Boston and the conduct of the 
British soldiers were themes that furnished strong points for the sharp pens of the writei-s who 
made up the editorial staflf of the Gazette. But no words were said that were too strong for its 
publishers to print. 

Meanwhile, as journalism took its early and steady growth in Massachusetts, it was grad- 
ually making its way into other States. The Connecticut Grize.tte, published in New Haven, was, 
in fact, started in the same year as the Bo.ston Gazette, 1755. Its proprietors were .James Parker, 
of New York, and John Holt, of Virginia. In Delaware, the Courant was already started at Wil- 
mington, and was published by James Adams. This was in 17G1. Then appeared the third paper 
in Rhode Island, in 1702, which was named the Providence Gazette and Country Journal. It was in 
this paper in IS^-i, that the ancient song of "Old Grimes'' was first printed. Next we hear 
of the Georgia Gazette, published in Savannah, in 1703 — the only paper in the State of Georgia 
prior to the Revolution. 

In 1704, Thomas Green published the Connecticut Courant in Hartford, a paper which still 
lives in well-earned prosperity. During the war of the Revolution its enterprising manageis 
constructed a paper-mill for making their own material. There was, at that time but one paper- 
mill and " bell-man " in New England. The Connecticut Courant was published " at the Heart 
and Crown, near the North Meeting House," in Hartford. It has continued its regular issues 
without interruption or change of name, from Nov. 19th, 1764, to the present time, making this 
paper nearly one hundred and ten yeai-s old. It is curious that in its prospectus, in which it speaks 
at length of the value of the press in making people acquainted with distant countries and with 
each other, as also in convej-ing " the History of the Present Times to every Part of the 
World" — that it should also distinctly refer to two points which modern journalists seem to 
consider the body and soul of a paper — advertising and the news. The publisher says : '■ The 
CONNECTICUT COURANT (a specimen of which the Publick are now presented with) will, 
ou due Encouragement be continued every Monday, begining on Monday the 9th of Novem- 
ber next : which Encouragement we hope to deserve by a constant endeavour to render 
this Paper useful, and entertaining, not only as a Channel for News, but assisting to all 
Those who may have Occasion to make use of it as an Advertiser." The seconil 
paper in New Hampshire was published in 1705, in Portsmouth, and called the Ports- 
mouth 3/ercMrj/ and Weekly Advertiser. In 1707, the Boston Chronicle was published under the aus- 
pices of the British authorities. It created quite a sensation by its literary character, and its 
typographical arrangement was such as to give our printers a lesson in their art. It was printed 
on a whole sheet in quarto— an important feature in those days, when all kinds ot printing mate- 
rial paid heavy taxes to the home government— and sold at six shillings and eight pence a year. 

One of the oldest papers printed at the present time, the Salem Gazette or the Essex Gazette, 
was first published in 1708— at least it is so stated, though its early history is a little mixed. The 
Essex Gazette seems to have been issued in 1708, by Samuel Hall, to be followed in 1774 by the 
Salem Gazette, by a man named Russell, which pai^er was in turn followed by the American 
Gazette in 1770, which was supplemented with anolher Salem Gazette in 1781. As the latter was 
afterwards merged with Ilall'.s paper of 1708. there is a probability that Hall's was the most pros- 
perous of all, and was the father of the present Salem Gazette. In 1868 the Salem Gazette, then a 
" Centennarian " gave a history of its birth, of its rather unstable early years and of the circum- 
stances of its life of a hundred years, commencing with the birth of the Revolution and passing 
through all this time when we have been growing from sparse colonies of three millions we 
broadened in the powerful Republic of forty millions of peoijle, looking forward to our future

greatness. It would not be an easy matter to make a minute history of journalism even at the 
present time ■with our forty millions of people and six thousand newspapers. But what will the 
writer of the future do with the task before him of choosing from fifty thousand newspapers, dis- 
tributed among a population of three hundred millions? If the .Salem Gazette continuea until that 
time it will have an opportunity to record the growth of a country with a mighty history— and '• a 
mighty voluminous one," as Mr. Phojnix said of a friend's collection of "Patent Office Reports." 
In 1770, there was issued in Boston a journal which has had so remarkable a history that it de- 
serves more than a passing notice. It was called the Massachusetts Spy, and was published bv 
Isaiah Thomas and Zachariah Towle. After an effort at independence with the motto " Open 
to All Parties but Influenced by None," it oame out boldly for the Revolution ))arty. Its editor, 
Isaiah Thomas, was, like Samuel Adams and John Hancock, one of the traitors who were to be 
■summarily executed by the Briti.sh— when taken. But he was not to be taken. To avoid any in- 
terruptions of this unpleasant character, he removed his type and press to Worcester, Mass. 
just before the affairs of Lexington and Concord and the paper has been pi-inted in that place 
ever since. The last number of the Spij issued in Boston was dated April Gth, 1775. On the 3d of 
May following, the Spy came out in Worcester with its motto in large type, as follows : 

AMERICANS 1 LIBERTY OR DEATH I JOIN OR DIE! 

One year afterwards the Spy introduced a new motto : " Unanimity at Home and Bravery 
and Persevearance in the Field, will secure the Independence of America." These terse, vigor- 
ous sentences seem to have had a strong influence upon public sentiment. They sounded the 
notes which waited in the hearts of men, only the magic touch, to spring into action and deepen 
into fierce resistance. So the Spy burned like a calcium light through the Revolution. It lived 
to see the independence of the United States secured, and, it is pleasant to think, lives to-dav. 
It is yet another of those journals which have had the good fortune or been subject to the good 
management which has enabled it to survive all shocks, whether political or financial, so that 
its successors can come out at the appointed time and tell the story of their being a hundred 
years old. In 1807 the Spy was moved into a new establishment and In 1870 the anniversary was 
•celebrated— -in a dinner. In a speech on this occasion, John Milton Earle— who is not at present 
with the paper, but who had purchased it in 1823 and conducted it for many years— refers to a 
curious fact, the prejudices existing, even in 1845, against daily papers. Mr. Karle spoke of the cir. 
cumstances under which the daily was established at that time. He said : '• It seemed to him that 
the size of the citj' and its business and commercial interests warranted such an enterprise. 
He had edited and published the Massachusetts AVeekly Spy since 1823, and, during that time it 
had been well-supported by the people ; but when the question of a daily was brought up, many 
discouraging objections were made, especially by business men. On the morning of Julj- 31st, 
1845— twenty-five years ago— the first number was issued. One reason urged by the merchants 
against starting the daily was, that the cost of advertising would be increased. To obviate this 
he adopted the policy of inserting in the Dailj- without charge the advertisements sent in for 
the Weekly ; and wlien their customers came inquiring for articles they had seen advertised in 
the Daily, the merchants began to see that it was greatly for their interest to advertise in the 
Daily. Then he left out of the Daily the advertisements sent in for the Weekly. The result was 
that in a short time, the advertisers cared much less for the Weekly than for the Daily." We have 
put this on record as showing what good business management will do for a newspaper. It is 
not a matter of very great surprise that papers should live a hundred years if such astute propria; 
tors happen to get hold of them. It will report the celebration of the one hundredth anniver- 
sary of the birth of the Repiiblic, and will then have scored its one hundred and sixtli year. 

A journal of some influence during the Revolution was a political paper started in New York 
in 1762, by James Rivington. It bore one of the long names with which the little papers of those 
<laj'S delighted to christen their publications : — " liivington's Neiv York Gazetteer; or, the Connecti- 
cut, New Jersey, Hudson River and Quebec Weekly Advertiser." It was a royalist paper. Rivington 
had been a printer and bookseller in London where he made |.50,000 which was lost in over- 
generous living, and he came to America with the hope of making vip his losses. But his 
paper was royalist and was twice mobbed by the people, besides having other difficulties 
to contend Avith. Major Andre was a contributor to this journal, and some of his poetry 
was printed in it on the very day of his capture. The wit of Rivington's Gazette used to be 
very offensive to some of the Americans, and they were often free with threats of what they 
would do with its editor whenever thej' got a chance. He tells a good story of an inter- 
view he once had with Ethan Allen, one of the Revolutionary heroes, who paid him a 
visit for the purpose of administering a "licking." He saj's : "I was sitting alone after 
a good dinner, with a bottle of Madeira before me, when I heard an unusual noise in the 
street and a huzza from the boys. I was in the second story, and stepping to the window saw 
a tall figure in tarnished regimentals, with a large cocked hat and an enormous long sword, 
followed by a crowd of boys who occasionallj^ cheered him with Imzzas of which he seemed 
insensible. He came up to my door and stopped. I could see no more, my heart told me 
it was Ethan Allen. I shiit my window and retired behind my table and my bottle. I 
was certain the hour of reckoning had come. There was no retreat. Mr. Staples, my clerk 
•came in paler than ever, and cla.sping his hands, said ; ' Master, he has come ! ' I know it. ' He

enteretl the store and asked if James Rivington lived there. I answered yes, sir. Is he at liome ?■ 
I will go and see, sir, I said ; and now, master, what is 1o be done ? There he is in the store, and 
the boys peeping at him from the street.' I had made up mj- mind. I looked at the Madeira — 
possibly took a glass. Show him up said I, and if such xMadeira cannot mollify him, he must be- 
harder than adamant. There was a feai'ful moment of suspense. I heard him on the stairs- 
his long sword clanking at every step. In he stalked. 'Is your name James Rivington?' It is, 

sir; and no man could be more happy to see Colonel Ethan Allen. 'Sir! I have come' Not 

another word until you have taken a seat and a glass of old Madeii-a ' But, sir; I don't think it 

proper ' Not another word, Colonel, taste this wine, I have had it in glass ten years : old wine 

you know, unless it is originally sound, never improves by age. He took the glass, swallowed 

the wine, smacked his lips and shook his head approvingly. 'Sir, I come ' Not another 

word, until you have taken another glass, and then my dear Colonel, we will talk of old affairs' 
and I have some queer events to detail." " In short,'' says the narrator, " we finished two bot- 
tles of Madeira and parted as good friends as if wc had never had cause to be otherwise" 

In 1773 the editor of the Spy issued another paper, with another of those long names.. It was 
called the Essex Journal and Merrimack Packet'; or, the Massachusetts and New Hampshire General 
Advertiser. Isaiah Thomas was one of the Franklins of his time. 

New York City had four weekly newspapers at the time it was occupied by the British, and 
the influence in newspaper publishing was making itself felt in its vicinity. In 1773, a paper was 
established in Norwich, Conn., called the Packet, and from about this time, the growth of the 
State in journalism, though not rapid, was steady. 

At the close of the Revolutionary period, a marked advance in journalism was apparent, 
though up to that time, none of our publications gave any indications of the newspaper-making: 
enterprise of which we see so much to-day. More was thought in those days about the spirit or 
animus of a newspaper, and about its opinions and principles, than of the mere sweeping up of 
news items, which to-day occupies so much of the energy of the journalist. Indeed, the people 
of 1873 are treated (by telegraph) with an overwhelming quantity of news items, and much 
important stuff which, no doubt, would do well enough for local items, but can hardly call up a 
passing sensation, or satisfy anything but a morbid taste in the general reader. Yet, if tlie editor- 
sends a reporter five hundred miles to view a hanging, and pays for five columns of telegraphic 
description of it, while he neglects to report a matter of science in his own city, it shows 
nothing more, perhaps, than this: that people want details of misery and crime; the highest 
office of the journalist is to give them; hence the press of to-day. But this does not prevent 
admiration of the old-time press, when an inspiration was worth much more than an unimpor- 
tant, perhaps impure detail. Perhaps to be a mere news machine is to be the best joui-nalist. 

The Netv Hampshire Gazette, an important paper, Avas published in Portsmouth as early as the 
year 1756. It has the honor of being the oldest paper now published in the United States, and is 
still issued in Portsmouth, the city of its birth. It was a thorough "liberty" paper, and was 
celebrated in home politics for its strong and unvaried democratic principles. It became demo- 
cratic in 180-2, having been before that time a Federal paper. It has been conducted at various 
epochs by men of considerable editorial talent, and often made an excitement in Portsmouth 
political circles. Thomas B. Laighton, whose name appears on the paper In 1835, was a man of 
ability, and his writings in the old journal may be read to-day with interest. In those days the 
reports of political meetings were not mere abstracts of the matters considered. The editors- 
of political newspapers took the matter in hand themselves. The proceedings were not merely 
catalogued, mechanically, by a reporter, as is to-day too much the practice; they were noted 
" with comments by the editor," and the comments were almost always the liveliest part of the 
matter. There was some art in it, for in this way the guns of the enemy were often spiked and 
their meetings turned to their own disadvantage. In those early days of political papers every 
possible advantage and a talent for making good-natured personalities and quiet, cool, temper- 
ate sarcasm were weapons not to be despised. There was a graphic quality in their descrip- 
tion, a virile force in their logic, and a masculine grace and strength in the blows they gave, that, 
much as we may prefer the journalism of to-day, we cannot look back upon without respectful 
admiration. It is human nature to admire that quality in a newspaper article which brings us 
near to the writer and causes us to feel something of h's personality or magnetism. Purely 
impersoiuil jourualism is too much like the mere oracle, the speech-gifted lay-figure, and carries 
too much of the quality which causes our admiration, and gains its strength, not from inherent 
good quality, but because it is a power behind the throne. A single instance may be given of 
the matter sometimes introduced into the reports of political meetings, as late even as 183-1, in a 
short quotation from the Neio Hampshire Ga-^ette, published March 10th of that year. The report, 
said to have been written by Thomas B. Laighton, its editor, was entirely in verse. It clothed 
each individual with a fantastic name descriptive of some peculiarity, instantly recognized by 
the readers of the paper, and gave the man's words with some ingenious twist or turn that placed, 
him in a light he little anticipated. One man is described in this way : 

" Next Barrington's famed Duke arose 
A six-feet giant without shoes, 
lie wiped a ilew-drop from his nose 
And tlius began " 



SKETCH OF THE GROWTH OF JOURNALISM. 23 

It seems tliat this man was well remcmberecl in Portsmouth as always having a " ilew-drop " on 
his nose, which he generally absorbed in a red silk handkerchief before entering on a political 
argument with his friends. Another is described in this wise : 

" Bob Logic next in anger stood 
With goggles sparkling, bright and good 

A lusty lout; 
Had he when wasting time at school 
Beea taught this applicable rule, 
' Silence is better for a fool 

Than speaking out,' 
He'd saved his friends the burning shame 
Of coupling folly with his name," etc. 

One of those present at the meeting had the temerity to attack the Gaze te in one of a pro- 
posed series of resolutions. He gets it as follows, and with this quotation we will pass to other 
matters: 

" Among the resolutions passed 
Was one that all the rest surpassed, 
I know not whose soft brain produced it, 
But think Bob Logic introduced it; 
It disapproved of the Gazette I 
What knave I ask e'er liked it yet 1 
It said it told distorted stories! 
So said in '78 the tories. 
It said it had much mischief done ! 
So said the foes of Jetiferson, 
When foreign tyrants sought t' enslave 
Our free-born sons on ocean's wave. 
It said its statements had brought down 
Contempt and slamler on the town I 
So said this self-same party when 
The British Lion left his den 
And on our borders howling stood. 
And laved his tongue in our best blood ! 
Then was the oUl Gazette abused, 
Then were its friends as now, ill-used — 
So let it be for when they raise 
In its behalf the meed of praise. 
Be sure it is no longer sound. 
But with our country's foes is found- 
May every curse befall us yet 
Ere tories praise the old Gazette.'' 

This was not a bad defense. 

Virginia possessed two regular newspapers before the Revolution. Both were called by the 
same name, the Virginia Gazette, and they were published simultaneously in the same town. 
Strangely enough, no confusion seems to have resulted from this custom. In those days almost 
all the newspapers seem to have been called " Gazettes," and in the case cited the difficulty was 
no doubt obviated by calling one of the journals Smith's Gazette, and the other Broivn's or Jones' 
Gazette. Although Virginia had these two newspapers before the war of the Revolution, neither 
of them seems to have made much impression, and it is likely that they were not of any great 
political importance. 

Eight newspapers were established during the first year of the Revolutionary War, an 
indication that the value of these journals as a means for mutual encouragement, for moral 
support, for political unity, and as a convenient method of spreading the news of victory, or of 
giving hope and comfort in disaster, was fully considered. It is to be observed, also, that the 
uses of these little printed messengers as a means of advertising were beginning to be better 
understood. This is shown in the names which were adopted for some of the new journals. 
The Packet and Advertiser, in New York, and the Journal and Advertiser, in Boston, both started in 
1770, are cases in point. This larger use of the name '"Advertiser" is an indication, at least, that 
much more attention was being paid to the importance of advertisements in the two chief com- 
mercial cities of the Colonies. The Journal and Advertiser — its whole name was THE CONTINEN- 
TAL JOURNAL AND WEEKLY ADVERTISER, was in some respects a fair example of the news- 
papers of the day. It was one of those journals which, no doubt, aided in producing that style of 
literary tone which eventuated in the naming of Boston " The Athens of America." It published 
in its columns, as a serial, the whole of Robertson's "History of America," a typographical 
entei-prise which it took two years to accomplish. One may imagine how tired and sick the 
good people of Boston must have been of the very name of that profound work. It is told of an 
English newspaper that, being short of copy in its early days, it published selections from the 
Old Testament in several of its issues. But this was absorbingly interesting, compared with 
the Boston journalistic feat, for it is related that the matter whs really new to the readers of the 
English journal. 

The first regular paper published in New Jersey, was the Gazette, \ss\ig<\ in 1777. New York 
had established a merely literary periodical in New Jersey as early as the year 1758; but the 
Gazette was New Jersey's first newspaper. It was started by Isaac Collins, a Quaker printer of 
enei'gy and enterprise, who issued it regularly until the year 1786, when it was crowded out of 
sight by other papers. In 1778 the New Jersey Journal was established, at Catham. Its editor, 



24 SKETCH OF THE GROWTH OF JOURNALISM. 

Daniel Frank, afterwards went to New York, where he issued a weekly, and in conjunction with 
Shepard Kollock, published the first directoiy of that city. He afterwards revived the Journal 
at Ellzabethtown, N. J., and remained its editor until 1818. 

In Boston, the Independent Ledger and American Adrertiser made its appearance in 1778. It was 
published by Draper & Folsom, and was revolutionary in sentiment. It bore the inflammatory 
motto, '-All hands with one inflamed and enlightened heart." Edward E. Powars, who had 
been connected in Boston with Nathaniel Willis in the publication of the Independent Chronicle, 
started the American Herald in Boston in 1781, and continued it until the year 1788. The editor of 
the latter journal removed to Worcester in 1788, where he started the American Herald and 
Worcester Recorder. Mississippi had her first newspaper as earlj- as 1779. Vermont, a little laten 
came out with the Vermont Gazette; or, Green Mountain Post Boy, in 1781. It was printed in West- 
minster, by Spooner & Green. In 1783 it was removed to Windsor, which is to this day a local 
newspaper-center. 

From 1748 to 1783, forty-nine journals were established in the colonies, all weekly or semi- 
weekly. One paper was started as a tri-weekly, but the experiment was not a success. It was 
then changed to a semi-weeklj', aud was finally made a weekly before it could be called an 
established newspaper. It seems that in those days, as for the most part it is to-day, tri and 
semi-weeklies met with difficulties. 

The whole number of newspapers published from 1690 to 1783 was sixty-seven— only forty- 
three of them were in existence at the time King George III. acknowledged the independence of 
the United States. 

When the Revolutionary Press, as a whole, was no longer necessary as War Press, the Politi- 
cal Press appeared. Xo longer united with the common object of freeing themselves from British 
rule, they commenced to difl'er about the conduct of the home government. This political press 
no doubt assisted greatly the growth of newspaper-making. Wherever one party had its organ 
iji a town or city, the opposition was ambitious to have equal facilities for presenting its facts 
and fancies. The most prominent of those papers which passed through the Revolution and 
entered the political field should be recorded here. They were the New York Journal, the New 
York Pac/.-e^, the Massachusetts Spy, the Boston Gazette, the Newport Mercury, the Connecticut 
Courant. the Maryland Gazette, the Boston Independent Chronicle, the Salem Gazette, the New Hamp- 
shire Lazette, the Pennsylvania Journal and the Pennsylvania Gazette. This list Avas soon supple- 
mented with other papers which in time became prominent. They record the words and the 
history of the gi-eat men of those days. In New York the Journal and Register (daily) and 
tlie Argus and Advertiser, published by Thomas Greenleaf, had a noticeable influence. They 
were finally disposed of to James Cheetham, an Englishman, who changed the names to 
American Citizen and American Watchman. They prospered from 18U1 to 1810. They were strong in 
sentiment and statement, and caused many quarrels. They acted with the wing of the Demo- 
cratic partj' led bj' DeWitt Clinton and opposed Aaron Burr. Several duels took place. Cheet- 
ham was not a practical printer, but was an able editor and a distinguished writer. He died in 
1809. His last words were, '-Boys, study Bolingbroke for style, and Locke for sentiment." The 
most considerable paper in Massachusetts after the Revolution was the Massachusetts Centinel and 
the Republican Journal, started in Boston by Warden & Russell in 1788, and managed for forty-two 
years by Major Benjamin Russell, its master mind. In 1790 its name was changed to Columbian 
Centinel, and it grew stronger in character and yet firmer in principle. It advocated the views of 
Washington, Adams, Hamilton. He printed the public laws. Called upon for his bill, he sent it 
to the State Department receipted. "This must not be," said Washington; "this is a debt of 
honor and must be discharged." Major Russell soon after received a check for seven thousand 
dollars. In 1810 the Centinel disappeared, being swallowed up by the Boston Daily Advertiser. 
The Boston Chronicle and the Gazette continued at this time with considerable of their foi-mer 
spirit, and with the Worcester Sj}y, the second oldest paper in the State, and the New Hampshire 
(r'aic<<e, stood out in relief from their fellow journals in New England. The Salem Gazette sur- 
vived the Revolution. In 1796 it Avas changed from weekly to semi-weekly. The remark on this 
change, by John Pickering, shows that newspaper enterprise had something to contend with 
in those dajs. He said : " The paper has never been published but once a week, and that is often 
enough ; it is nonsense to disturb people's minds by sending newspapers amongst them twice a 
week to take their attention from the duties thej- have to perform." 

The first daily newspaper in the United States was published in Philadelphia in 1784 by Benja- 
min Franklin Bache. and was named the American Daily Advertiser. The New York Daily Adver- 
t iser followed close vipon it, and was issued in 1785 by Francis Childs & Co. In the same j-ear Maine 
]>rinted its first newsjiaper, the Falmouth Gazette and Weelhj Advertiser. It was in 1829 that the 
]htily Courier appeared in Portland, edited by Seba Smith, Jr., the original Jack Downing of 
Downingsville. It had a rival daily, the Advertiser, in 1831. It was in this office that James and 
Erastus Brooks of the N. Y. lixpress learned their profession. The Hampshire Gasei^e, another 
of the long-lived papers which is now one of the best papers of its class in Massachusetts, was 
started in Northampton in 1780. It was established in the supportof the trueprinciples of repub- 
lican government, and fuHillcd its mission nobly. The Pittsburgh (Pa.) Gazetievfixs started in 17ft;, 
and was the first pai>er west of the Allcghanies. It now has eleven dailies, three or four of which 
are German. John Bradford printed Kentucky's first paper in Lexington, in the same year. The 



SKETCH OF THE GROWTH OF JOURNALISM 25 

X^orth American, published in Philadelphia in 1839, was a remarkable paper in some respects, but 
was certainly a curiosity in its power of absorption. It is made up of no less than nine different 
journals, though living to-day under the modest name of The North American and United States 
Gazette. It absorbed the Packet and Advertiser in 1771, the Daily Advertiser in 1784, the Gazette of the 
United States in 1789, the Evening Advertiser in 1793, the United States Gazette in 1804, the True Ameri 
can in 1820, the Commercial Chronicle in 1820, The Union in 1820, The North American in 1839, and the 
Commercinl Herald in 1840. In 1793 Noah "Webster issued a Federal paper, the Minerva, in New York . 
It was a daily, and published a weekly edition called the Herald. These names were soon after 
changed to Commercial Advertiser and New York Spectator. 

The Western press was naturally of slow growth, depending much on population and rail- 
roads. The newspaper and printing office of the Northwest was the Centinel, published in Cincin- 
nati in 1693, by William Maxwell. The second was the Gazette, at Chillicothe in 179G, and the third- 
the Western Spy. The Mercury appeared in Cincinnati in 1804, and was published for eleven years, 
when it was united with the Gazette, which was established in 1806. In 1827 the Gazette, y^iih. a list 
of one hundred and sixty-four subscribers, came out as a daily. In 1834 this enterprising journal 
introduced the steam power press in the Northwest. Indiana followed with her first paper in 
1818. It was issued at Vincennes in 1808. In the same year Missouri came out with the St. Louis 
Jiepublican, a journal which is living to-day, full of years, enterprising and prosperous. The Dem- 
ocrat is another of St. Louis' veteran newspapers. The first newspaper in Illinois was the Intelli' 
gencer, published al Kaskaskia in 1814 or 181.5. The first in Chicago was the Democrat, established 
in 1833. Yet the State has at the present time over four hundred journals. These papers have all 
been issued during the lifetime of an editor, who is the oldest living editor in Illinois, Mr. Robert 
K. Fleming, who established the Kaskaskia Democrat as long ago as 1822. 

Arkansas had two weekly papers in 1834, when it was a territory. One, the Gazette, was 
printed at little Rock ; the Herald was published at Helena. The Western press had many 
struggles, but has arrived at a prosperity and influence which would surprise almost any one 
except an American. As early as 1846, there was in New York, an Evening Post ; another appeared 
in 1794, and a third in 1801. The latter, edited by William Cobman, is the one now published. Ham- 
ilton and Jaj' both aided in its establishment. Wm. Cullen Bryant, its present proprietor, wrote 
for it as early as 182G. Previous to 1808 there were six daily papers published in New York, the 
Gazette, Mercantile Advertiser, American Citizen, Evening Post, Commercial Advertiser, Public Advertiser. 

North Carolina published its first newspaper in 1799. It was called the Register, and published 
in Raleigh. It was founded by Joseph Gales, one of the remarkable men of that State. 

Washington, before it became the seat of Government, had two or three newspapers, one of 
them, the Gazette, being published there in 1796. In 1800, when the Government removed there, 
the National Intelligencer and Washington Advertiser was established by Samuel Harrison Smith, 
and became the organ of the Government under the administration of Thomas Jefferson. The 
Federalist was started about the same time. The Globe was not started until 1830. In 1815 Wash- 
ington had five newspapers. It has twenty-two or twenty-three — one of them German — at the 
present time. 

In South Carolina, an important paper, the Charleston Courier, was published bj' Loring 
Andrews, of Massachusetts. Never a violent political journal, it was always enterprising as a 
newspaper. It continued until the present year when it was merged into the Charleston News, 
with the name News and Courier. Its files were sold at auction in April of this year — shortly 
after the paper consolidated. The following account of the sale will give some idea of the value 
of such files : " Some of the earlier volumes are in rather a dilapidated condition, but the entire 
set will be rebound in uniform style. The complete file makes one hundred and fifty volumes, 
covering a period of seventy entii-e years, and includes every paper published from the date of 
the first issue, in 1803. A special representative was sent to Charleston with orders to secui-e the 
journalistic treasure al any cost. The price paid was $2,250. The firm name of A. S. Willington 
& Co., which was put at the head of the first number of the paper, remained there until the last 
number of its independent existence, which was issued but a few days ago. Mr. Willington, 
the founder of the paper, died onlj' in 18i)2." 

A remarkable paper of the South, the Richmond (Va.,) Enquirer, was established in 1804, by 
Ritchie & Worsley. It was the organ of the Virginia Democracy. It had one peculiarity which 
we believe has never been imitated in any journal of importance. Ritchie, its editor, 
wrote bis editorials in the first person. The man and the paper were closely identified. He 
was one of those editors who believe in repetition. He would have made a good advertiser. He 
realized the fact that a subject or a person once referred to made but a momentary impression, 
however vigorously it might be written of. He felt that repetition fastened a statement to a man 
or impressed an idea on a body of men. It is a good thing he believed to drive a nail, but a great 
advantage to clinch it. Among its contributors was William AVirt, who used the pen-name of 
"The British Spy." Its rival, the Whig, did not appear until 1826. It was founded by John II. 
Pleasants, and was a warm supporter of Henry Clay. The history of the Enquirer is, in fact, 
the history of the whole democratic party. Few journals have exerted the influence which 
this paper wielded as the great leading organ of a powerful political body. The political press 
always needs a strong leading journal and is ready to follow in its wake like sea-roll at the 
stern of an ocean steamer. The smaller journals are unwilling, or unable, or have not courage

or talent enough to originate and carry out a bold policy, but are ready enough to be well led 
by a master mind or a bold spirit -who -will undertake the i-esponsibility. This was the office 
and marked characteristic of the Enquirer for many years. Even those who did not agree with 
it politically admired the spirit with which it was conducted, until it pushed eventually into an 
abusive tone which was found by many to be both tiresome and distasteful. The paper was a 
good one in other respects than as a political organ, and is living to-day, admirably conducted 
and ready no doubt to celebrate, in the coming year 1874, its one hundredth birtliday. Proba- 
bly no Southern journal contains a more thorough record of American history and politics 
than the Richmond Enquirer. The Kew Hampshire Patriot, as influential a political paper in 
its State, as the Enquirer in Virginia, was established in 1808, by VVm. Hoit ; at a later day, under 
the management of Isaac Hill, it attained to a large New England circulation. It was he who 
started the war against the United States Bank, when Jeremiah Mason was president of its 
Portsmouth branch. He was twice elected Governor of New Hampshire. 

Another of the prominent political papers is the Albany .^rgrMs, founded in 1813. It was the 
State organ of its party. In 1824 it became a daily. For over half a century it has been a powerful 
paper in State politics, and is to-day one of our honored "State Blankets." The Argus, was 
started as a thorough democratic journal— the party above everything— democratic at all times 
and under all circumstances. Jesse Buel was put forward as its editor. He was a discreet and 
reliable man and understood his business. When, however, an article was wanted which should 
stir up the souls of voters, when the traditions of past victories were to be brought up to Are the 
hearts of the masses and make them more solid, like one man, then one of the strong lights of 
the democracy would swell out in an ai'ticle that called forth all the enthusiasm of the party and 
sounded the note of chai-ge. As a consequence, in the old files of the Albany ^rgr^is may be found 
some of the most remarkable political articles— not so much for strength of logic or grandeur of 
principle, but for power of appeal and moving eloquence— as has ever been written. The Argus 
at once received the patronage of the National Government and witliin two years had secured 
the State printing, for which the Albany papers have constantly struggled thi-ough successive 
administrations. It was in one of these struggles that the Argus was joined with the Atlas, con. 
ducted by William Cassidy, and these unitetl opposed another younger, but in some respects 
quite as remarkable a paper— the Albany Evening Journal of Thurlow Weed. 

In 1813 a democratic organ was established in New York by Henry Wheaton and named the 
National Advocate. In 1816, Mordecai Menasseh Noah became one of its editors. In 1823 he claimed 
to be the only editor of his own party in the city. He left the city in 1825 and his place was occu- 
pied for two years by James Gordon Bennett. M. M. Noah afterward, in 1826, founded the En- 
quirer, which, in 1829 was merged in the Courier, the new paper being called the Morning Courier 
and New York Enquirer. In 1827 the Enquirer introduced a new feature into American journalism 
by employing a Washington correspondent. Mr. Noah started the Neiu York Star in 1840, a paper 
which was united one year later with the Commercial Advertiser. In 1843 he issued Noah's Weekly- 
Messenger, which in a short time was united with the Sunday Times and lives to this day. He was 
a man of mark in his time, but as we look back upon his histoiy he seems to have been rather a 
newspaper-founder than a newspaper-maker— he was an author and play-wright of repute. 

Who founded the Religious Press, now so important an element in American journalism ? It 
has been a matter of dispute. The best authority we have defines it as follows : Nathaniel Willis 
first conceived the idea. Sidney Edwards Morse edited the first religious newspaper, and John 
Andrews was its publisher. It was the Boston Recorder, and its first number was dated Jan. 3d 
1816. The Watchman and Reflector, organ of the Baptists, was first issued in 181!). The New York 
Observer vf-AS founded by Richard C. and Sydney E. Morse, brothers of Prof. S. F. B. Morse, the 
electrician, in the year 1820. Zion's Herald, of Boston and the Christian Intelligencer and Evangelist 
of New York, are among the oldest of our religious papers. The religious press has grown to 
extraordinary proportions and employs some of the best literary talent in the country. It has a 
daily In New York, the Witness, whose early failure was predicted, but which seems to have had 
abundant success despite secular prophecies. The Youth's Companion, an eight-page paper, still 
published by Perry Mason & Co., Boston, is one of the oldest religious papei-s. It was started in 
1826, by Nathaniel Willis. The growth of religious journalism seems the more surprising when 
we consider that although its first exemplar was started in 1816, in 1860 it counted two hundred 
and seventy-seven papers, while at the present tinae there are no less than three hundred and 
seventy, with a probable annual issue of at least one million copies. 

From 1830 to 1840, several notable periodicals appeared. The Louisville Journal was one of 
them, established in 1831, by Geo. D. Prentice, the poet-editor. His paper had a wide influence 
and was stamped with the strong personality of its editor. It is now edited by Heni-y Watterson, 
a worthy successor to its distinguished founder. Col. W. N. Haldcman, who is associated with 
Mr. Watte rson in the Journal — now published under the name of the Cortrier- Journal is one of the 
best newspaper-men of the West. The Louisville Journal was notable from the fact that its editor 
would often accomplish more in a political rocket of five lines than was effected by the pondci-- 
ous leadei-s of his contemporaries. He sti'uck through the imagination. His weapons were sting- 
ing retorts or little flaming shafts of ridicule. Like Heine, he knew the tender spot and struck 
for it direct. To meddle with him was like what Billings has called touching " the business end 
of a wasp." 



SKETCH OF THE GROWTH OF JOURNALISM. 27 

Nile's Weekly Register, a periodical of exceptional value to scholars and statisticians and almost 
indispensable to the historian, was started in Baltimore, in 1811. Its motto explains its object 
and shows wherein it was afterwards found so important. This motto was: " The Past— the 
Present^-for the Future." It continued publication until the year 1848, and since that time has 
become so valuable for libraries of reference that complete sets are valued as high as $300. 

Special or class journalism, now so necessary to our manufacturing, commercial and social 
interests, was commenced about fifty years ago. In the past ten years its growth has been 
extraordinary. There is scarcely a department of human activity which has not a regularly issued 
journal, printed directly and exclusively in its interests. For many years these periodicals 
wore confined to prices-current and money and stock circulars. But the remarkable success 
of one or two of the pioneers in this department of journalism, suggested to others a field of 
labor which has since yielded an abundant harvest. Not only this, but the efi'ect of these jour, 
nals upon our trade, manufacturing and productive interests, as upon science, art and literature^ 
has been of incalculable importance in the development of the intellectual and material resour- 
ces of the country. Books serve to give a compilation of the state of any department of human 
elTort, up to a certain time ; the special newspaper serves not only as a record of what has been 
accomplished in a particular department of industiy, but gives the news of what is going on in 
it up to date. 

The agricultural press makes another large and vei-y important department, similar in 
respect to its distinctness and its methods of business, to the religious press. It was in 1818, two 
years after the first religious journal, that the pioneer agricultural periodical appeared. It was 
published in Baltimore, by John S. Skinner, and was called the American Farmer. The Plough- 
Boy was issued in Albany, in 1831, and the New England Farmer in 1822. It was pui'chased by 
Luther Tucker, in 1846, who changed its name to Horticulturist, and removed it to Albany. The 
Neiu England Farmer was afterwards revived in Boston, and is now published by R. P. Eaton & 
Co. The Southern ^gmcjiZ^wHs^ was issued at Charleston, in 1828, and in 1830 Luther Tucker brought 
out the first number of the Genesee Farmer, in Kochester, N. Y. In the same year, Samuel Fleet 
published the iV^ew York Farmer and Horticultural Rejwsitory. The Maine i^arrreer appeared in 1833, 
and the Cultivator was published in Albany in 1834. The Boston Cultivator was issued in 18:39, and 
thG Ploughman in 1841. The American Ag7-iculturist, now published in New York by Orange Judd 
& Co., was started in 1S42. Then we have the Rural Neio Yorker, the Prairie Farmer, of Chicago, 
the Wisconsin and the California Farmer, and very many other younger and older agricultural 
publications of importance. New York has also a German agi'icultural publication. It would 
be difficult to estimate the great amount of service these journals have rendered the agricul- 
tural interests of the country and their efi'ect upon its interior wealth and prosperity, and the 
happiness of its people. The agricultural press has made a science of what, at one time, appeared 
a somewhat dull pursuit. 

The Sunday press has grown up since the year 1825. New York had newspapers for one hun- 
dred years before its first Sunday paper. The Cotirier, edited, singularly enough, by a theologi- 
cal student, made its appearance. A religious journal, the Galaxy, was published in Boston in 
the j-ear 1834-5. Public sentiment, greatly modified in the lapse of years, was against them. For 
obvious reasons, however, the Monday's morning paper was the realtransgressor, if sin there be. 
Then came the Telegraph, and the Sunday Morning News. In 1838 we had the Atlas, and the Sunday 
Visitor in 1839, which changed its name to Sunday Mercury in 1840, and is published to-day by Cald- 
well & Whitney. At that time, machine poetry is said to have been its specialty. At present, it 
is known as an enterprising and lively journal. The Sunday Star came out in New York in 1842, 
and sold for one cent, the second paper of the same quality and price. The first one, the Packet, 
died in the attempt to advertise at one cent a line, and furnish the public at one cent a copy. It 
was not enough, so it was sent out of existence. The Sujiday Times appeared in 1845. John 
Hooper, Esq., the well-known advertising agent, was connected with it. In 1846 we had the Sun- 
day Dispatch, still one of the best of the Sunday papers. 

The sporting press first appeared in New York with the Spirit of the Times, in 1831. The New 
York Clipper, a handsome quarto, published by Fi-ank Queen, appeared in 1854. The Turf, Field 
and Farm is a younger journal, but is, like those above mentioned, one of the better class of 
these papers. They have done much to secure the careful breeding of stock, and are perse- 
vering in their eflbrts to give sporting matters their proper status in a community where out- 
of-door and athletic sports are only too much neglected. 

Some of the important papers published in the days when New York journalism though yet 
young, was beginning to feel its power and look forward to its destiny, may be rapidly enumer 
ated, in passing forward to the time when the journals appeared somewhat as they are now. 

The Courier and Enqtiirer, established in 1827, was one of these, as was also its competitor in 
its early days, the Journal of Commerce, established In 1827— both published in New York. In 
Boston, the Daily Advertiser commenced in 1813. Nathan Hale, one of its early editors, was the 
first to introduce steam-power presses into New England. He, too, was the first president of the 
first railway in New England, the Boston and Worcester. The Advertiser, in its process of build- 
ing up, has absorbed a half-dozen or more other good papers, and now looks large enough to take 
in more of them. The American Traveller, issued in 1825, is another of the notable papers of Bos- 
ton. In 1845, the Boston Evening Traveller took its place. The Courier, published in 1824, may be

classed with these, as also the Transcript, issued in 1830, and the Daily Morning Post, which printed 
its first number in ia3I, with Beals & Greene as publishers. The Atlas, whicli appeared in 1832, is 
celebrated as having printed contributions from Daniel Webster. The Daily Journal, whicli 
appeared in 1833, is another of Boston's prosperous papers. 

At this period, many new papers were started thi-oughout the United Staths, and not a few of 
them arrived at eminence. Among the number was the Nashville Union, in 1815, and the Charles- 
ton (S. C.) Mercury, celebrated as early as 1832. 

Newspapers, up to the year 1833, had been increasing in size and price. In that year there 
was a reaction. The Bostonia, and the Cent in Philadelphia, came out on a penny basis. The 
idea was taken from the Illustrated Penny Magazine, pubished in London in 1830. The Morning 
Post was the first morning paper of any pretentions, publislied in the United States. It was 
issued in New York, in 1833, by Dr. H. D. Shepard, Horace Greeley and H. V. Story, with $200 capi- 
tal, and $40 worth of credit, for type. It lasted but one week, but it prepared the way. In the 
same year the Sun appeared, with " E Pluribus Unum " for its motto. " It shines for all " was 
added afterwards. For thirty years, or until the war of the rebellion, its price remained un- 
changed. Its first number contained four advertisements of " wants." It was sold in 1868 to 
Charles A. Dana & Co., for $175,000. After the Sun's success, other penny papers were started, in 
Boston, Philadelphia and Baltimore. Many of them died, but three or four survived, and the 
penny press was fully established. Since that time, many of the successful journals in New 
York were started on a one cent basis, and gradually increased in price as they felt their power. 

From 18.'}5 to 1845 a series of successful papers were started, which owed their prosperity in 
a great measure to the fact that they were understandingly put forth and wisely conducted. 
They were not mere ventures, but were published with an idea— to supply a want— and the work 
was done by men who understood their business and who were able to deduce certain sure prin- 
ciples of journalism from a consideration of the failure or the success of others, and its natural 
causes. 

In 1835 came the New York Herald, by James Gordon Bennett, and in 1841 the New York Tribune. 
by Horace Greeley & Thomas McElrath. In the year following there were nine cheap papers 
and seven " six-penny sheets," six Saturday and five Sunday papers. From this period, jour- 
nalism in the United States pushed forward with giant strides. 

Among those to be noted as papers of influence, the Knoxville Whig should be remembered, 
for it has held a master hand since 1840. The Springfield Republican, started in 1847, is another of 
the influential, and to this time, prosperous journals. The Baltimore American, the Mobile Regis- 
ter, the New Orleans Picayune and others, commenced to rival the journals of the metropolis. 

The Pacific slope commenced to open a page in the History of Journalism. In 1847 the State 
of California, the State that was to have 163 papers in 1861, printed its first newspaper. 

With telegraphy came a further advance in journalistic enterprise, until journalism had 
grown to such an extent that its history must rather be considered in its statistics than in detail, 
without a volume or volumes were to be made concerning it. The first 36 miles of wire Avere put 
up in 1844. Who shall estimate the efi"ect of telegraphy upon the press when we consider that, in 
1872 there were 180,000 miles of wire in the United States, 450,000 miles in Europe, and 30,000 miles 
of sub-marine cable, — and that these are employed, for the most part, by the newspaper press ! 
Shortly before the press had this powerful ally, the telegraph, it had discovered the necessity of 
organization and had formed an Associated Press. There were three of such organizations in 
existence, though on a limited scale, in 1838. It was prepared in full time to act in conjunction 
with the telegraph in 1846. Take these two adjuncts, and our remarkable increase in population 
and advance in education and enterjjrise, and some idea of the causes of the rise of the present 
press may be gained. At the appearance of the New York Times in IS-il, the tide of advancement 
was at itsfiood,and continuedto the warof the Rebellion, which, if it setback someof the weaker 
journals and destroyed others, yet gave some life out of death and destruction. The necessity 
An- news brought news. The need for enterprise developed it, and the press still further 
advanced itself in skill and in resources. 

The early liistory of journalism in the United States cannot be told in figures. It has no sta- 
tistics. Progress in those days Avas not estimated through the aid of mathematics. An idea of 
the pioneer press can only be obtained by taking up journal after journal, as it was published, 
and finding out something characteristic of its history. 

The facts in modern journalism must be given, for the most part, in figures. It has grown 
l)oyond mere description. A detailed historj^ of the progression in journalism of a single State 
would fill volumes ajid be incomplete. There are many towns and cities where newspaper his- 
tory would make a volume, and an interesting one, yet not tell the Avhole story. The complete 
history of a single great newspaper would also fill a volume and yet be but half told. In this 
sketch, therefore, we have preferred to give such an account as was possible of the earlier and 
more prominent papers, and the dates at which newspapers were started in the several States. 
Ittaving the wonderful of later days to the comprehensible, if not picturesque tabular aggrega- 
tions of those deep in statistical lore. 

And now to some of these figures. At the commencement of the war of the Kevolution in 
1775, there were 37 newspapers published in the United States. In 18:3.5 there wei-e 1,2.58 daily, semi, 
weekly and weekly papers. These papers covered fourteen States. New York had the largest

number, 2G0. Then came Pennsylvania with 200, Ohio with 145, and Massachusetts with 112. None 
of the other States reached tifty newspapers except Maine, which had 52. Virginia comes next, 
with 40, and South Carolina with 39. The wliole annual circulation of periodicals in that year 
must have reached the neighborhood of ninety-five million copies, circulated among fifteen mil- 
lions of people. Since 1835 the returns made to the Government have been published. By these 
we find that in 1S40 there were 138 dailies and 1,20(5 weeklies— 1,404 in all— an advance of one hun- 
dred and forty-six papers in five years. From 18f0 to 1850 shows a considerable progress— the 
whole number of papei-s in the latter yoar being, by official return, 2,302, of which 254 were daily 
and 2,048 weekly. In 1850 New York State had 5 daily and 329 weekly papers. Ohig had two more 
daily papers than Pennsylvania, showing 20 in the former to 24 in the latter State; but Pennsyl- 
vania had many more weekly papers, counting up 204 to Ohio's 211. Massachusetts had 22 dailies 
to 141 weeklies. All other States had less than one hundred weeklies and less than sixteen dailies. 
la another ten years we note a considerable advance. In these years there were 372 daily and 
2,971 weekly papers in the United States, divided in about the same proportions, as to States, as 
in the previous ten years. The year 1870 showed a larger increase than could have been expected 
by the most enthusiastic progressionist. The figures are given in brief in the following tables :

SKETCH OF THE GROWTH OF JOURNALISM. 



31 



As comparefl with other nations, America is far ahead in tlie extent of her journalism. In 
1850 there were printed in tlie United States 427,000,000 copies of newspapers. In Great Britain 
in tlie year 1851, there were 91,000,000 copies, or less than the United States printed in the year 
1S35.

With the same rate of increase in the next ten years as in the past, there will he more peri- 
odicals printed in the United States alone, than in all the rest of the world combined. In 1871 
the Post-offlce Department of the United States delivered 32,610,.55:) newspapers. Yet the Post- 
offlce Department performs but a small part of the service of newspaper delivery. 

In the light of these facts, and of our wonderful progress in all these matters— to report, to 
record, to stimulate, to advise, to make the knowledge of the day, the hour homogenous— who 
shall say what the press of one hundred, even of fifty years from now shall be ? 



EXPLANATIONS. 



The statements in relation to circulation in this issue of the American Newspaper 
DiKECTORY are in many instances smaller than in previous issues. The method of arriving at the 
figures given, has been to take an average of the figures furnished in accordance with the pro- 
gramme set forth in the blank furnished to publishers, of which the following is a copy : 

(COPY OF BLANK.) 

REPORT FOR AMERICAN NEWSPAPER DIRECTORY FOR 1873. 
CIRCULATION. 

This blank is furnished every publisher. It is to be filled— inserting the proper figures in the spaces left for 

answers to questions Nos. 1, 2 and 3. Questions Nos. 4 and 5 are to be answered Yes. The blank is to be regularly 

signed and dated. If returned without being properly filled, signed and dated, or if not returned at all, I shall 

estimate the circulation according to my best information. If any publisher objects to having his circulation given, 

shall so state.

In some instances, from local jealousies or other causes, the statements of publishers have 
been questioned, and in such cases, the aflitlavits have been called for, and when promptly furnished 
the figures are mai'ked with a dagger, (f) which indicates that the affidavit is on file in this office, 
and can be seen by interested persons. 

The star (*) against estimated circulations, indicates that a larger issue was claimed, but no 
allidavit was furnished in response to ihe application therefor. 

Tlie Blank above referred to, was furnished two separate times to every publisher who has 
failed to respond. 

Where no adveitisements are taki'ti for a publication, the matter of circulation, being unim- 
portant, has been omitted, and tlie fact stated thus : " Do not insert advertisements." 

Where publications are devoted to the (almost) exclusive interests of any particular person 
or firm, or to the ventilation of any certain idea, or established solely as advertising schemes, 
embracing a class with circulations almost entirely gratuitous, they are termed " advei-tising 
sheets," and no circulation given. 

Where ito^tc matter follows the description of a publication, it is by order of the publisher, 
and is paid for as an advertisement.
