A Complete List of American Newspapers, 

A Statement of the Industries, Characteristics, Population 
and Location of Towns in which they are published ; a/so, 

A Descriptive account of some of the Great Newspapers 
of the day, 




(Licensed by the Catalogue Co.) 

Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 187(5. by 

GEO. P. KOWELL <fc (JO., 
In the Office ot the Librarian of Congress, at Washington, I). C. 





The early proposition for tile celebration of the first century of American nationality was 
simply patriotic, but it took on no definite form. As the people grew familiar with the idea 
this vagueness drifted into the shape which it has since assumed. Its present form seemed 
the best, as it utilized the world s selfishness and made it give eclat to the occasion. "We 
invited all peoples to exhibit their handiwork and products here among our millions of 
customers and consumers, arid they accepted our proposition and did come, bringing with 
them their inventions and their works. 

All inventions which have benefited mankind in all ages had their origin in man s 
longing for comforts. As the forests fell before the axe of civilization, the pick and shovel, 
aided by steam, upheaved the coal from its beds where nature had stored it away cycles of 
ages before ; as wheat fields replaced the felled forests, the invention of steam-plows and 
agricultural implements to garner the fruits of the earth appeared ; as man craved inter 
course with his fellow the world around, correspondence became a necessity, and the light 
nings were laid under contribution to unite them ; and as civiDzation advanced, bringing in 
its train a taste for luxuries unknown in ruder days, the heavens, earth and seas were ran 
sacked by the scientific and plodding to gratify it. The first great Exposition of the world s 
industry simply developed the extent to which man had advanced in economics a quarter of a 
century ago, and incited other nations to emulate the. English in their adventure. The 
displays in other lands which followed rapidly, testified to t lo same desii 3 ! .>; com 
forts and luxuries ; and this, the latest Exposition, telling the- same story in tiic Y. estern 
Hemisphere, is a fitting memorial of the first century which has passed over these United 
States. In the various buildings dotting the Park at Fainnouut may be seen the works of 
art and usefulness which sprang from the necessities of mankind, and taxed inventive 
genius and mechanical knowledge to contribute to their enjoyment. Necessity, like the 
great central engine, which the hand of our President sent wheeling on its course, moving 
the machinery through all the extent of thnt huge hall, has brought together the wise men of 
the world with their offerings of " gold and frankincense," to lay them before the new dispen 
sation H?" peace on earth, good will to men." Our mechanic; as he wanders through the 
corridors of the buildings, may learn to estimate properly his works, b\ comparing them with 
those of other lands. While ft was most proper and will be profitable that the works of the 
world s busy artificers and artists should be here displayed, the initiatory steps for a fitting 
representation of the unity, extent and progress of the Press" were not taken until long 
after the inception of the idea of a suitable commemoration of our Nation s natal day. All 
agree that the Press is potential and useful, and it was believed to have kept pace with other 
industries, but none thought of specially exhibiting it in its entirety. Its scientific magazines 
supplied the mental pabulum which fed the genius of our inventors ; its records of victories 
in mechanics and useful arts have inspired others to experiment and effort ; its illustrated 
journals presented to every citizen at most moderate prices the models of buildings, tools, 
machinery, and whatever else was deemed desirable in this direction. It was elevating in 
this land the standard of taste and work, and building up as its reflex the schools which 
abound in our country. As an evidence of what we might have been without this instru 
mentality, it may be well to point to nations where the press has no existence. In Egypt 
there is not one paper printed in the Arabic language ; some few there are in French and 
German, but not for the Egyptians, and the rudeness of the work of the general people 
testifies to the lack of popular instruction through the power of newspapers. Track the 
globe around, and those lands will be found most highly civilized and forward in catering to 
their people s comfort where the press is most plentiful, free and powerful. On the banks of 
a beautiful lake glistening between the Machinery Hall and the United States buildings 
stands a modest house, costing but little in money and small in extent, yet in it are gathered 
every newspaper and magazine published in this country. 

There arc eight thousand one hundred and twenty-nine newspapers published regularly 
in the United States. The combined issues of all the other nations of the earth do not equal 


this number. An exhibition of a sample copy of each of all these thousands of periodicals 
would hardly convey an adequate idea of the importance of journalism in this country, yet 
it would do something- towards that end ; and believing that it would not be practical to 
attempt more, Messrs. Geo. P. Rowell & Co., in the early spring of 1875, addressed the 
Centennial Commission, making application for space iu the main building, estimating that 
room would be required for fifty volumes of two thousand pages each. This was before 
the departments were thoroughly organized, and no response having beeu made to their 
formal application, the matter waited in abeyance until September, when it was again 
brought up by General Joseph R. Hawley, President of the Commission, aud an exhibition 
was finally arranged, as set forth in the following correspondence : 

GEO. P, ROWELL & Co., New York City, PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 17, 1875. 

Gentlemen: Some time ago I made a memorandum that I must write you concerning an 
exhibit of the American newspaper, that wonderful feature in American civilization. It 
seems to me that an exhibit of its progress during the century and its present condition 
would be exceedingly interesting. Could every existing American periodical from semi 
annual down to daily be shown ? How and where ? Have you any scheme .in mind ? Can 
you submit a plan ? Can yon come here and talk it over ? Respectfully yours, 

J. R. HAWLEY, President U. S. C. C. 

GEO. P. ROWELL & Co., New York, PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 20, 1875. 

Gentlemen : I have just read your note of the 18th. By all means develop the project. 
There ought to be a presentation of the periodical press of 1776 and 187C. * * 

Do not forget this matter. Hastily yours, JOSEPH R. HAWLEY. 

GEO. P. RO\VELL, 41 Park Row, New York, PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 15, 1875. 

Dear Sir: Did I answer your letter ? I m not sure. * * * I shall be 

glad to see you, for your exhibition ought to be made. The American newspaper is a peculiar 
institution a special feature of American political and general education. 

Hastily yours. J. R. HAWLEY. 


Dear Sir .Your application for space in the International Exhibition for a display of 
sample copies of every periodical in the United States has been placed before me for consid 
eration. It has been suggested that such an exhibition would be very much more attractive 
and interesting if an outside pavilion were provided for that purpose. * * * * 
I most cordially commend this suggestion to you, with the hope that the newspaper interest 
of the country will join in providing such a pavilion, which would be a distinctive feature of 
the Exhibition. * * * "* * . 

Yours very respectfully, A. T. GOSHORX, Director-General. 

GEO. P. ROWELL. ESQ., PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 12th, 1876. 

Dear Sir : AVe have a number of applications similar. * * * * It is not 
my intention to grant any other privilege of this kind. Yours verv respectfully, 

A. T. GOSHORN, Director-General. 


Dear Sir .I have made a new design for your building, aud will send the drawings to 
you in a few days. Yours respectfully, W. J. SCHWARZMAXN, Architect. 


Gentlemen.- * * * * I called Mr. Schwarzmann s attention to the sub 
ject of your letter yesterday, and he will transmit to-day or Monday the plans for your 
proposed building. I hope very soon to be advised definitely of your success m securing the 
Exhibition. Yours very respectfully, 

A. T. GOSHORN, Director-General. 


Dear Sir : I sent you to-day by Adams Express the drawings for your building. The 
general arrangement and construction remain the same. 

Yours respectfully, W. J. SCHWARZMANN. 

GEO. P. ROWELL, ESQ., 41 Park Row, PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 29, 1876. 

Dear Sir : I am right glad you are going ahead with your work. It will be as distinctive 
and interesting an American exhibit as we shall have on* the grounds. *#,-** 
lours truly, J. R. HAWLEY. 

It was now decided to attempt a much more comprehensive display than had first been 
thought of. Instead of a sample copy of a paper, every publisher was to be allowed to ex 
hibit a file for several weeks or months, and in place of being bound up in heavy volumes 
it was arranged that every paper should be made instantly accessible, and the exhibition 
thus serve the additional purpose of a monster reading room and an exchange for newspaper 

P K E * A 

pamphlet, job and ornamental printers will, I believe, very generally present the 
imens of their work ; and many of these beautiful productions of typographical skill 
- what rapid advances the printer is making toward placing himseli by the side of 

About this time Messrs, llowell & Co. received a communication from a well known 
printer (Peter C. Baker, Esq., of New York), who has devoted much time to the interests of 
the craft. He writes as follows : 

The . 

best specimens of tli 
Avill show what rapid 
the artist and engraver. 

" But what is the Newspaper and Periodical Press doing to show that in this department 
especially our country surpasses all other nations of the world ? I have not yet learned that 
any positive arrangements have been made to give tangible evidence of the immensity of the 
newspaper and periodical interests of our country, and therefore I very respectfully and ear 
nestly suggest that immediate steps be taken to take this important matter in charge, and 
prepare a plan by which a copy of every newspaper and periodical published in the United 
States be collected and shown at the Centennial. No feature of the exhibition would !>e more 
effective than this to show the world the general intelligence of our people, and make plain 
the secret of the success of our republican experiment." 

Other communications of a kindred tenor came from unexpected sources. 
Being thus encouraged, plans were perfected and adopted. A prominent position was 
assigned the Newspaper Pavilion by Director-General Goshorn on Fountain Avenue. 

The above engraving represents the exterior. The following description first appeared 
in the New York Sun of February 14th : 

" The plan of exhibition is an alphabetical arrangement of partial files of each newspaper 
or periodical in such a manner as makes them instantly accessible, the space devoted to each 
bearing a label with the name of the publication printed thereon, and further designated by 
a number, by means of which a stranger, upon reference to his catalogue, is able at once to 
approach the section of the building where the particular journal which he desires to examine 
or refer to may be found. 

" The cases containing these files form alcoves similar to those in public libraries for the 
arrangement of books, these alcoves forming long tiers, one on each side of the building, 
throughout its entire length, a portion of the space between being reserved for the accom 
modation of attendants, leaving a passage-way for the public eighteen feet in width, extend 
ing from one end of the structure to the other. 

" The second story, approached by four flights of stairs, is devoted to reading rooms for the 
accommodation more especially of newspaper men. and supplied with conveniences for cor 

A better impression of the interior architecture may be obtained frojn the following writ- 


ten after an examination of the plans by GAR, the accomplished (lint decidedly critical) cor 
respondent of the New York Times, in its issue of February 20th : 

" The building is of timber and very neat. It has a length of sixty-seven feet, -with a width 
of forty-six feet, and a total height of thirty-three feet. From the exterior it appears to bo 
in two stories, but the centre of the building is only one story, and is a very fine chamber, 

with ample light and space. 
The whole is arranged with 
that precision and mastery 
over details which have 
gained for ^fr. Rowell his 
celebrity as a business man. 
The alcoves arc fairly lighted 
by windows which occupy the 
entire space between them, 
so that there is no difficulty 
in obtaining the wished-for 
file if the directions furnished 
are followed. The height of 
the side chambers where 
these alcoves arc placed is 
eight feet, and over them arc 
the writing galleries, \vherc 
numerous desks are placed. 
Nothing can be simpler or 
more efficacious than this 
system, which, undoubtedly, 
is the very best that could 
have been devised. The gal 
leries are lighted by rows of 
windows corresponding to 
those in the alcoves below, 
and by the large transom 
windows at each end. In the 
facade this window is set 
back from the gable roof 
about five feet, and a. very 
effective ornamentation of 

radiating, incised planking is introduced, which relieves very pleasantly the simplicity of the 
structure. The interior is perfectly ventilated by a large lantern roof, and therefore the 
building deserves the praise of being thoroughly lighted, thoroughly ventilated, and of being 
admirably arranged for the desired purpose. 

The cost of the structure, with its fittings and furniture, has not fallen short often thou 
sand dollars, while the necessary attendants, books, blanks, together with the compilation 
and distribution of a large edition of a three hundred page catalogue, require another allow 
ance of a similar amount. In the mere item of postage more than twelve hundred dollars 
was expended before the opening day of the exhibition. When it is remembered that no 
less than two hundred and fifty dollars worth of stamps are required to communicate once 
with all the publishers, the rapidity with which these items count up is readily comprehended. 
But with all these matters Messrs. Rowell & Co. had abundant experience. Further 
more, through intimate relations with the press of the country, extending over a period of 
more than ten years, they had always been seconded* in a most generous manner. They 
were therefore fully convinced of two things : First, that their efforts would be appre 
ciated by publishers to such an extent that the entire expense of the exhibition would be 
returned to them ia the form of voluntary subscriptions. Second, that should this fail en 
tirely, the exhibition would be worth its full cost as an advertisement of their own business, 
as conductors of the most complete newspaper advertising agency In the world. 

In their application to publishers to send their papers and contribute towards the eiitei - 
prise they made the following pledge : 

The Exhibition will be made precisely as set forth, even if there should not be a single 
subscription offered. * 



Events hare shown that their faith in the good-will and intelligent co-operation of 
publishers was not misplaced. 

The proprietors of leading journals responded with such promptness and generosity that 
they may be said to have themselves assumed the cost of the exhibition. 

An opportunity to contribute to the money expense was offered only to Representative 
Newspapers, and it is believed that among those of prominence which have neglected to 
respond not one has done so from an unfriendly feeling towards the enterprise, but mainly 
or solely from the pressing call for an economical management of expenditures which tho 
stagnation of business for two years just past has made so loud in many establishments 
deemed prosperous. 

Nothing but good-will has been evinced from the beginning. No disparaging word has 
appeared in any respectable journal, while favorable comments have filled the columns of tho 
press from Maine to Oregon, from Florida to Texas. 

One of the most pleasing features has been the handsome manner in which Messrs. 
Rowell & Co. have been encouraged by their brother advertising agents, as evinced by 
the following extracts from letters received : 

Offices, 37 Park Row, X. Y. ; 10 State St., Boston ; 701 Chestnut St., Philadelphia, ) 

February 22, 1876. ) 

We are pleased to learn that you have made arrangements to erect a building on the 
Centennial Exhibition grounds, in which to keep complete files of the newspapers of our 
country for the use of the public, and that you will also have good accommodations f < r 
editors , reporters, publishers, and others connected with the press. The enterprise could 
not be in better hands, and we hope and believe it will prove a great success. 

Yours truly, S. M. PKTTENGILL & Co. 

Permit me to express my gratification that to you has been delegated tho important task 
of making a complete exhibition of the newspapers and periodicals of the country at tho 
forthcoming Centennial. From your extensive business connections and personal popularity 
with the press in all parts of the country, and your well-known experience and ability, no 
one, I am sure, could be selected who woul.l manage it more satisfactorily. The whole 
newspaper fraternity are to be congratulated that this attractive and interesting exhibition 
is in such able hands. It will afford me pleasure to co-operate with you or assist you in any 
way in my power. Very truly yours, S. R. N 

CINCINNATI, Feb. 14, 1876. f

* * * * I can but commend the enterprising spirit manifested in such an 
undertaking. Notwithstanding the immense number of the exhibitions of skill and enterprise, 
suck a building as you propose and such an array of newspapers as you suggest, will attract 
a large number tf visitors. * * * * No one, I think, can do this thing better. 

Truly yours, U. L. PETTENGILL. 


* * * * We know of no agency in the East better calculated to conduct 
and insure success in such an enterprise. * * * * 

Yours trulv, 

I cannot refrain from expressing my gratification nt the prospect of there being at the 
Centennial such an exhibition as you contemplate. It deserves to be, and I feel sure under 
your management it cannot help being a success. I should be glad if I could do anything to 
help you make it so. * * * * 

Yours very truly, T. C. EVANS. 

CINCINNATI, Feb. 6, 1876. 

In congratulating you on your appointment to the management of the newspaper depart 
ment in connection with the Centennial Exposition, we express not only our own conviction, 
but we believe also that of the entire fraternity, when we say that the Commission have done 
Avell in selecting yon for this responsible position. Your well known ability as a manager is 
a sure guarantee of a, successful exhibition. 

Yours truly. E. N. FRESHMAN & BROS.

Yours truly, CHANDLEI;, LORD & Co. 


265 WASHINGTON STREET, BOSTON, Feb. 14, 1876. ) 

I know of no one more competent to carry out the arrangement than yourself, and it 
assures me at ouce|of its success. I will render all aid possible. 

Tours very truly, HORACE DODP. 

NEW YORK, Feb. 28, 1876. ) 

Your proposed exhibition of American newspapers at the Centennial not only deserves to 
succeed but will certainly do so, because you are a good man to have it in charge, and lie- 
cause you will surely have the cordial co-operation and good wishes of all persons in any 
wise connected with the newspaper press. 

Yours truly, J. H. BATES. 

That Philadelphia agents were the only ones not joining in these expressions is doubtless 
of greater apparent than real significance. 

Americans are a nation of newspaper readers. There are papers for girls and boys, 
for teachers and taught, for trades, arts and sciences, for the lovers of the wonderful, the 
religious, the agriculturists, the metallurgists in a word, the physician, as he rides to the 
expected birthplace of some young patient, and the undertaker, as he drives to the house 
of mourning, must each have his paper to Avhile away his time. The opening exercises of the 
10th of May were read by millions in every part of this land, and carried to distant countries 
by the press and the aid of the telegram it called to its use. 

Good men are not afraid of criticism by the press. It makes statesmen and unmasks 
hypocrites ; it incites to great deeds ; it brings to every man s door the record of progress 
made in every department of learning and activity ; it develops science, and whiles away the 
tedium of heavily hanging hours It fits out exploring expeditious to discover new fields for 
civilization ; it lays before its readers the doings of the world s busy multitudes, the fall of 
empires, the uprisings of nationalities, the record of the Storm-king s progress around the 
world, the decisions of the forum, the acts of governors and legislators ; it tells the farmer 
what to plant and when ; it develops the latest inventions ; it weighs in the nice balance of 
purity of motive the deeds of the ruling powers ; before it the unjust tremble, and on its pages, 
as on the walls of the ancient banqueting hall, the wicked rulers may read, " weighed in the 
balance and found wanting" ; it stirs the heart of benevolence to greater deeds of charity. 
it inspires the desponding, deters the plotters, and from the ruler to the humblest citizen, it 
throws its Minerviau aegis around all alike. It is the voltaic pile, where is contained the 
vitalizing power of a universe. In this little Newspaper Pavilion, which may not be visited 
by all who go to the Centennial, are deposited the thousands of papers which mould Ameri 
can sentiment. At Virginia City one may go down the shaft of a mine which, in the dark 
and dismal rocks, is pouring out constantly a stream, of molten silver to enrich man. Few 
will venture into those profound depths fiom curiosity alone, but the men at work keep right 
along turning out the precious nietal for man s delectation and their own profit. 

In these grounds is exhibited a nugget of silver said to weigh two tons, the product of one 
of those mines. Thousands of curious men and women are drawn about it, and look wou- 
deringly and wistfully upon its huge form. It represents to man s cupidity just so much of 
life s happiness. But thieves may break through and steal such treasures. A short distance 
from this mass of metal stands the modest house where are clustered the fruits of ten thou 
sand minds, printed so plainly that a wayfaring man. though a fool, need not err therein. 
Who thinks of the toiling thousands of earnest literary men and women, scattered over our 
states and territories, who waste midnight oil in preparing that mental food which, enduring 
when silver and gold have taken to them wings and departed never to return, proves to be 
a lasting comfort ? 

Newspapers are the synonym of goodness and virtue, however much some men may affect 
to despise them. It was a labor of almost infinite trouble to gather these papers from all 
quarters, but the work is a great success, and there is no worthier place to visit than the

Extract from NEW YORK TIMES, June 14, 1875. 

Ten years ago Messrs. Geo. P. Rowell & Co. established their Advertising Agency inXew 
York City. Five years ago they absorbed the business conducted by Mr. John Hooper, who 
was the first to go into tins kind of enterprise. Xow they have the satisfaction of control 
ling the most extensive and complete advertising connection which has ever been secured, 
and one which would be hardly possible in any other country but this. They have succeed 
ed in working down a complex business into so thoroughly a systematic method that no 
change in the newspaper system of America can escape notice, while the widest informa 
tion UDOU all topics interesting to advertisers is placed readily at the disposal of the public.

The first American news paper was printed in Boston, Sept. 25, 1690. It was issued 
by Richard Pierce and published by Benjamin Harris, and was intended to be pub 
lished once a month, but was immediately suppressed by the authorities. The only 
copy known to be in existence is in the State Paper Office in London. The Boston 
News Letter, published by John Campbell, appeared April 24, 1704, being issued weekly 
until 1776. It was followed by the Boston Gazette, Dec. 21, 1719, and by the American 
Mercurie, issued by William Bradford, at Philadelphia, Dec. 22, 1719. On Aug. 17, 
1701, James Franklin, elder brother of Benjamin Franklin, established at Boston the 
New England Courant. Oct. 16, 1725, William Bradford, the founder of the Mercurie at 
Philadelphia, began the publication of the New York Gazette, the first paper issued in 
that city. In 1728 Benjamin Franklin established in Philadelphia the Pennsylvania 
Gazette. In 1754 four newspapers were published in Boston, two in New York, 
and two in Philadelphia. The Virginia Gazette was then printed at Williamsburg, 
having been first issued in 1736 by William Parks, who had previously given to the 
public for nine years the Maryland Gazette, at Annapolis. In 1776 seven journals 
were published in Massachusetts, one in New Hampshire, two in Rhode Island, four 
in Connecticut, four in New York, nine in Pennsylvania, two each in Maryland, Vir 
ginia, and North Carolina, three in South Carolina, and one in Georgia; in all thirty- 
seven. All were weeklies, with the exception of the Advertiser, of Philadelphia, 
which was semi-weekly. 


By the " American Newspaper Directory " for the current year, 1876, there 
appear to be now published in the United States and Territories, 738 daily, 70 
tri-weekly, 121 semi-weekly, 6,235 weekly, 33 bi-weekly, 105 semi-monthly, 747 monthly, 
13 bi-monthly, and 07 quarterly publications, making a total of 8,129 of all kinds. 

Of the journals published in the country, the State of New York furnishes the 
largest number. Of all kinds, New York State prints 1,818; Pennsylvania follows 
with 738; Illinois is third ; and then come in regular order Ohio, Iowa, Missouri and 
Indiana, all of which outstrip old Massachusetts, although she issues nearly 350. 
Only ten States print as many papers of all kinds as California, which ranks fourth 
in the number of its dailies. It seems to be peculiar to the new States at the West 
that they sustain daily papers. In many places the first newspaper established will be 
a daily, while in the old towns at the East such a thing was never heard of. Until 
within one or two years Florida has never had a daily paper. 

At the present day it Avonld seem that the United States print more newspapers 
than all the other nations of the world. Their growth has been rapid even in pro 
portion to the increase of population. In 1776 we find we had thirty-seven papers 
and three millions of people. Now we have eight thousand papers and forty millions 
of people. These figures show that whilst one hundred years ago we printed one 
newspaper for every 30,000 souls, we now print one for every 5,000. This can be 
accounted for only on the hypothesis that the people are now more in the habit of 
reading than formerly. At the time Independence was declared probably no family 
took more than one paper, while now many take several. 



A newspaper is defined by Webster to be " a sheet of paper printed and dis 
tributed at short intervals for conveying intelligence of passing events." In com 
piling a "Newspaper Directory" it is necessary to exercise a good deal of care to 
be able to say what should be called a newspaper. The definition given by Web 
ster cannot be taken as an accurate description of the present-day newspaper, for 
numbers do not contain any news, while many sheets which do, are not considered 
newspapers. All the amateur publications, for example, are excluded, though the 
number is quite large of those printing considerable news; and many sheets devoted 
especially to advertising the business of some man or firm are also omitted. On the 
other hand, books and magazines everything published at regular periods not ex 
ceeding three months are classed as newspapers. 

There has been of late a large increase of what are called " class papers." It is 
being recognized that every interest must be supported by a paper. There are relig 
ious papers, agricultural papers, commercial papers ; those of a financial, insur 
ance, masonic, and temperance complexion, and so on through the whole list of 
interests and isms. The class papers in many cases are very successful. They seem 
to be in receipt of an excellent advertising patronage, and for the obvious reason that 
they are taken by people to Avhose interests or theories they are specially devoted, 
so that when one wishes to communicate with this particular class they are par 
excellence the channels. An advertisement in the Scientific American will reach 
many thousands of mechanics, while the same advertisement in an ordinary paper 
would be read by possibly the same number of or more people, but by fewer mechanics. 
So an advertisement in the American Builder might reach more carpenters than one 
in the New York Times, although the circulation of the latter would surpass that of 
the former many times. 


Among the newspapers which have been most successful in obtaining wide 
spread circulations are certain story papers and Sabbath school journals, which do 
not contain news, and some of which are without advertisements. That some such 
journals can rely for profits upon their circulation for remuneration, does not 
render it less a fact that the advertisement is the life of newspapers. Daily 
papers are, in many instances, sold to newsboys at a price so low that it hardly 
pays the cost of the white paper on which they are printed. The editorial expenses, 
the setting of the types, the expensive presses, the magnificent incomes of the pro 
prietors, are all the result of the advertising. Without the fast presses of to-day 
the editions of 50,000 copies could not be printed in two or three hours of a night 
as now, and but for the advertising patronage the papers could not be afforded at 
the low prices which make possible the immediate sale of such enormous numbers. 


The number of new papers started during the past five years has averaged not 
fewer than six per day, but the actual increase has been only tAvo thousand one hun 
dred and seventy-nine. Suspensions and consolidations account for the balance. 

Since May 1, 1875, thirteen hundred and sixty-six papers have commenced pub. 
lication (an average of over four for each laboring day), and one thousand and 
ninety-seven have suspended. That the circulations are below what they were one 
year ago is also more than probable. 

The States in which there has been an increase in number are: Arkansas, nine; 
California, twenty-eight; District of Columbia, eight; Georgia, five; Illinois, sixty- 
five; Indiana, eighteen; Iowa, twenty-two; Kansas, six; Kentucky, nine; Maine, 
one; Maryland, two: Massachusetts, ten; Michigan, eleven; Minnesota, two; Mis 
sissippi, five; Nebraska, seven; Nevada, two; New York, two; North Carolina, one; 
Ohio, thirty-one; Oregon, one; Pennsylvania, thirty-one; Texas, eighteen; Virginia, 
five; Wisconsin, eight; Territories, six; Dominion of Canada, twelve. 

There has been a decrease in the following States : Alabama, six; Connecticut, 
two; Delaware, one; Florida, one; Louisiana, one; Missouri, twenty-three; New 
Hampshire, three; South Carolina, seven ; Tennessee, five; Vermont, five; and in 
Newfoundland, two. 


Exactly the same number as last year is issued in New Jersey one hundred 
and seventy-sevenRhode Island, twenty-seven, and West Virginia, seventy-five 
Divided geographically, the gain in number is: New England States, one; Middle 
States, thirty-four ; Western States, one hundred and forty-seven; Southern States, 
forty; Pacific States, thirty-one; Territories, six; Canada and Newfoundland, ten. 


It is interesting to. consider what influences chiefly contribute to extend or 
limit the circulation of papers. One reason why those of New York State should 
have a larger circulation than their contemporaries in the West is that the Occi 
dental States are largely peopled by emigrants from the Eastern, among whom 
there is a tendency to take a home paper. This swells the sale of Massachusetts 
and other New England papers. Another reason : New York is the metropolis 
of the country, the headquarters for all sorts of information ; and the knowledge 
of this contributes to make people in every part of the country seek after the 
New York journals. It was notorious in the time of the war that the armies in 
the battle-field, officers and men, waited for the New York papers in order to get 
accounts of the battles they fought, as no others gave them so fully and accurately. 

The leading morning papers of New York neai ly all sell for four cents, but in the 
Western States five cents is the general price. Since, however, the hard times 
penny papers have come into fashion again, and it is quite a remarkable fact that 
most of the leading papers of the country were first brought into favor and notice 
as such. 

The number of daily newspapers which stereotype their forms and use dupli 
cate machinery is very limited, New York having as many as all the rest of the 
country combined. 

The newspaper seems to be an institution specially calculated to advance in 
this country. Everybody reads it. Many men and women of more than ordinary 
intelligence read nothing else; and it would be wrong to assume that such do not 
educate themselves respectably, for he who studies thoroughly a well-conducted 
New York daily will not be badly informed on matters of importance. The neces 
sities for newspapers seem to be endless. Politicians want them to advance their 
political interests; rings want them to influence the public mind; the public de 
mands them to keep itself informed , religious denominations require their aid to 
propagate their distinctive tenets, and so on. 


In the matter of printing presses there has been a great change in ideas in the 
past ten years. The Walter press, which has many points in its favor, is the only one 
used in the office of the New York Times. The St. Louis Republican also employs one of 
these machines. The Bullock press has superseded the Hoe in the New York Herald, 
Sun, and several other offices. Both these presses print from a continuous roll of 
paper. This feature alone implies a considerable saving in the working expenses 
of the press room. Another advantage they possess is their great compactness 
a quality of much importance in large cities where room is scarce and expensive. 
The Bullock press is specially remarkable for this, and, other things being equal, 
bids fair, by virtue of its excellence in this regard, to advance to the very first rank. 
The Hoe press retains its position in most of the important offices outside the metro 
politan cities, and is still used by the New York Tribune. Several manufacturers 
compete for the patronage in lower-priced machines. In the smaller weekly offices 
the old hand-press holds its own, and their sale is greater now than ever before, 
amounting to several hundred yearly. 


An impression prevails, particularly in country places, that the public want a 
large sheet of paper. The country newspaper publishex~ will almost always increase 
the size of his sheet if he can get advertising enough to pay the actual cost of the 
enlargement, and yet have no thought whatever of making a better paper. The 
notion that he is publisher of a large paper seems to gratify his pride. This idea 
that a big sheet is desirable would seem to be delusive, because we find, ingoing 


over the successful papers of the country, that those which really pay the best are, 
as a rule, the small ones. 


The publications of all kinds described in the " American Newspaper Direc 
tory " for 1870 are represented by 7,G2G titles. In many cases several editions are 
issued from the same establishment, under substantially the same name, and in 
the figures just stated such several editions are counted as but one. The Journals are 
the most numerous, there being 487. Next in favor stand the Times. These num. 
ber 310. There are 302 Heralds. The News number 298. The total of the Gazettes is 
276. The Democrats come next in point of numbers, 268. To offset the Democratic 
phalanx there are 211 Republicans. The Advertisers number 92, and are naturally most 
frequent in localities where the populace is the most enlightened and progressive. 
There are 122 Advocates. This name appears to be a favorite of the religious pub 
lications, and at least three-Qfths of the total are borne by religious papers. There 
are 60 papers known as the Argus, and with this quantity of professed eye-power, it 
is amazing that the frauds heretofore existing for years were not sooner discovered. 
There are 58 Bulletins, which are undoubtedly perused with care by the 51 Citizens 
described in the "Directory." Of Chronicles there are 89, while 143 Courier* stand, 
in expectancy, ready to depart with 34 Dispatches. There are 89 Enterprises, most 
of them being located in the West. There are 45 Expresses, 34 Farmers, and 20 
Globes. One of the latter is the Flint Globe of Michigan, and another the Golden 
Globe of Colorado Territory. Just 133 papers keep on the safe side by being Indepen 
dents, though 49 Leaders are ready to direct them. There are 34 Ledgers, 47 Observers, 
and 16 Pilots. One of the latter is the Storm Lake Pilot of Iowa, and another the 
Lone Rock Pilot of Wisconsin. Each of these is remarkably co-incident in respect 
to the name of the place and the name of the paper. There are 59 Posts, 122 Registers, 
and 95 Reviews. The country enjoys the guardianship of 144 Sentinels, one of which 
is the Lone Tree Sentinel of Iowa. There are 76 Standards, Si Stars, bQSuns, and 93 
Tribunes. Among the unusual or striking titles are the Bistoury (Elrnira, N. Y.), Jim. 
plecute (Jefferson, Tex.), Luxapililan (Fayette C. H., Ala.), the Card Basket a society 
paper -of Washington, the Hope Star of Hope (Ark.), Tfiistleton s Illustrated Jolly 
Giant (San Francisco), China Mail and Flying Dragon, the Elm Leaf (East Hartford, 
Conn.), the Eulenspiegel (Owl s Mirror) of Chicago, Jejferson Republican, the Southern 
Cross a. Catholic paper of Savannah, the Egyptian Press (Marion, 111.), Hoosier 
Patron and Lady Granger (Indianapolis), Hoosier State, Union Spy there is only one 
Condenser, Meschacebe, Wide Awake a literary paper Iron Home (Ishpeming, Mich.), 
Morgan s Watch-tower (Mt. Pleasant, Mich.), the Ricochet (Oxford, Miss.), Blatter und 
K ladder adatsch, the Schnedderdengg, Freedman s Monitor and Workingmari 1 s Looking Glass 
(Phila.), the /. C. B. U. Journal (also in Phila.), the Four Counties of Richmond, Texas, 
the Ventilator and Golden Rule (Maiinington, W. Va.), Eurhetorian Argosy (Sackville, 
Ont.), Stylus, Lady Elgin (Elgin, 111.), Over the Country, Pajaronian, Aurora Brazileira, 
Neighbor s Home Mail, Psyche, Madisonensis, and the Alpine Chronicle of Silver Moun 
tain, California. To these may be added the Toledo Blade, Burlington Hawk Eye, Cape 
May Ocean Wave, Broad Axe of Freedom, Sentinel on the Border, Unttrri/ied Democrat, 
Spirit Lake Beacon, Homer s Iliad, Horsehead s Journal, Painted Post Times, Roman 
Citizen, and many others. Names popularly supposed to be frequent are in fact 
rare. It occasionally happens that the prominence attained by a single paper with 
a certain name brings the name so much before the people that it grows familiar 
to the public mind, though there may really be but few papers with the same desig 
nation. What the journalistic fancy of the Centennial year will devise in the way 
of newspaper titles is uncertain. 


Within the past seven or eight years there has come up a class of newspapers 
known as co-operatives, or patent insides and outsides, by which it is understood 
that the publisher purchases at a central point a sufficient number of sheets for his 
issue with one side already printed. The persons with whom he contracts, having 
extensive offices, and wide arrangements with publishers through a great extent of 
country, are able to supply fifty or one hundred with the same matter, the geographi 
cal distribution of those papers being so distinct that the fact of the sides of two 


papers being alike becomes of no consequence. They do not go to the same readers. 
The system has been scoffed at; but it has grown nevertheless. It is found that 
the man who has a " patent inside" can in many cases make a better paper and a 
cheaper than he who plumes himself upon doing the thing "all at home." There 
arc about 2,000 sheets printed on this plan more than a fourth of all the weeklies 



The value of advertising space in a newspaper is generally supposed to be fixed 
by its circulation, but although the principal, this is not the only element to be 
considered. Advertisements in papers having large circulations are said to be 
worth half a cent a line in dailies, and one cent a line in weeklies, for each thou 
sand issued. In papers of smaller circulation publishers have to obtain a higher 
price for advertisements which go in but a few times. Advertisements are attracted 
to those journals which contain other announcements of the same class. A man 
who wants to let a house advertises it in the paper in which he sees most an 
nouncements of houses to let; and in time in every city there will be some one 
paper monopolizing that class of advertisements, and it is almost impossible for any 
rival ever to displace it or deprive it of this peculiar patronage. It will hold it 
even after having lost its circulation. 

The impression prevails that English papers are much more favored with adver 
tisements than the American ones. This is not the case. Our journals have more and 
get much higher prices for them. No other paper in the world has so many as the 
New York Herald, whose advertising rates are fifty per cent, higher than those of the 
London Times, and Harper s Weekly charges four times as much as the Illustrated Lon 
don News for the same space. The truth is, the advertising rates of American 
papers are higher throughout than those of the English, and the patronage 
emended to them is more munificent. 

The one-price system for advertising is the one which pays. Publishers are 
apt to devote too much attention to advertising. They think that this is all they 
have need to strive after, and they often depend upon it to pay every expense. Some 
have even gone so far as to publish a paper to be given away, trusting to the adver 
tising to even cover the cost of the white paper; but as the paper would be a great 
item of outlay, the temptation to defraud is so great that it is not in human nature 
to withstand it. Knowing this, advertisers have come to regard papers of free cir 
culation as dishonest enterprises, and there are now none of them in existence 
which are of any account. Advertising space is generally charged for by the 
" square "a term which may have had meaning once, but has not any now. A 
"square" means a space a large or a small space, according to the arbitrary rules 
of offices. Thus, a man who orders two " squares " may find he has negotiated for 
eight or for sixty-four lines. A "square" is about as definite as "a piece of chalk." 

Agate is the type used in all the great daily papers for advertisements. Smaller 
type would not do, and larger is never employed. In some of the higher priced 
weeklies they are set in nonpareil; in a few of the lower priced still larger type 
appears, and in some of the Southern papers we find the paid announcements 
displayed in long primer. Whenever a paper uses a larger type than nonpareil 
for its advertisements, the experienced advertiser knows that space can be bought 
at a low price. 

It is, doubtless, true that the best managers of newspapers treat their advertis 
ing space as merchandise. They know what it costs and what it ought to be 
worth, and unless they obtain the price they value it at, do not sell. Experience 
teaches that the man who gets a reduction to-day will not advertise to-morrow unless 
a similar or greater concession be made ; whilst he who is refused to-day comes in to 
morrow with increased respect for the man who had the backbone to see him leave 
the office the day before. Yet, after all, advertising space is not like merchandise. 
Merchandise, if not sold, remains in store and possesses value, whilst advertising 
space, if not disposed of, must be filled up with reading matter, and the com 
positor, too, must be paid for setting it. This fact acts as a lever in the hands 
of the shrewd advertiser, and is by him used with great effect. In most of the 
country weeklies an advertisement for three months will cost no more than twice 
the sum which would be demanded for one month; and if double the price for 


three months be offered for a year s insertion, the chances are it will not be refused. 
Patent medicine men become very conversant with this condition of affairs. 

Advertisements possess another value in addition to the money which they bring 
The "wanted" advertisements, those of school-books, etc., etc., are much sought 
after, they being supposed to give character to the columns of a paper. Patent medi 
cine advertisements, although considered less desirable, are, as a general thing, 
taken at lower rates than those of banks and insurance companies, because it is under 
stood that a man who advertises patent medicines must make the advertising pay, 
and that he will watch and know the result. The other classes extend their adver- 
ti-ing more as favors, and have less faith in its efficacy. 


Of the circulation of newspapers in this country as compared with that in 
others we know very little. This is the only country in the world wherein any sta 
tistics of newspaper circulation are published regularly. People s ideas about 
circulation are very crude. Newspapers have by no means such large constituen 
cies as they are supposed to have. A town of 50,000 inhabitants rarely will buy 
as many as 2,000 copies of a daily paper published in its midst; and many a daily 
paper is published which prints less than "00 copies per diem. Sometimes papers 
rarely heard of in the town of their publication, and thought but of little conse 
quence there, are those printing the largest number of copies. In New York city 
the News undoubtedly prints more than 100,000 copies a day, yet many residents 
of the city do not see a copy from one end of the year to another. The largest 
regular circulation ever obtained by any daily newspaper in the United States is 
now possessed by the New York Sun, Its daily issue is about 140,000 copies. The 
London Daily Telegraph is the only paper in Europe whose circulation exceeds that 
of the New York Sun. That is said to issue about 180,000 copies daily, while the Lon 
don Times, believed by the public in general to be the leading paper of the world 
(and justly so), prints barely one-third that number. It is almost superfluous to add 
that the most influential dailies are not always those of largest circulation. 

The New York Ledger and the New York Weekly undoubtedly print more than 
100,000 copies every issue possibly twice that number; a child s paper in Boston 
issues 127,000, and Harper s Weekly can claim nearly 100,000. With these exceptions 
there is every reason for believing that there are no weekly papers which exceed 
an issue of 90,000. 

A premium system of getting subscribers has been A r ery much in fashion for 
some years past, which has at times been very successful. Many papers have run 
up an enormous circulation by this means, people often buying them for the premium, 
and not caring for the paper. But circulations so obtained do not hold good, and 
after the expansion has once receded, it is exceedingly difficult to restore it. 

The religious paper having the largest circulation in the United States is the Chris 
tian Advocate, published in New York; next to it, probably, the New York Observer. 

It is a remarkable fact that some of the most profitable papers have very 
small circulations. They obtain a good name and valuable advertising patronage; 
their small issue enables them to get along with low-priced presses. Having plenty 
of time to run off an edition, they do not employ many men. With them there is no 
rush or confusion. Everything goes slowly, comfortably, is done cheaply, and man 
aged with economy, and a large portion of the money which comes in remains as 


The amount of capital required to start a newspaper is an interesting subject. 
It varies from three hundred dollars up to a million. Many an one has been com 
menced on as little money as the smallest sum named, while probably a million 
would hardly suffice to bring out in New York at the present time a daily which 
should successfully compete with the great dailies already in existence. 

The largest profits ever made from newspaper enterprise have come from 
daily papers. They also sink money the most rapidly when they fail to pay. Weekly 
papers stand next in the order of lucrativeness; but semi-weekly and tri-weekly 
papers are rarely profitable. There is no instance in all the Northern States of 
a semi or tri-weekly paper having ccme up to the value of $15,000. 


The sums of money sunk in establishing papers are often very heavy. On Har 
per s Weekly $100,000 was expended before it commenced to pay; the New York 
Times outlay reached several hundred thousand dollars before the investors began 
to see a return ; Hearth, and Home entailed on its various proprietors losses riot far 
short of $200,000 before it was finally suspended; and many a paper of which the pub 
lic knows nothing has cost its owners sums ranging from $30,000 to $100,000. On 
the other hand, the profits, when success is met, are proportionately large. Har 
per s Weekly has undoubtedly paid as much as $100,000 a year in profits; the New York 
Ledtjtr much more. The Philadelphia Ledger, New York Herald, New York Times, 
and New York Sun have often paid much larger profits than those even. It is re 
ported that the Chicago Tribune earned from its advertising columns the money re 
quired for its new building as it was needed to pay the contractors. Monthlies rarely 
make much money. They are generally published for the pleasure of the thing. 
No temperance newspaper was ever known to pay. The same maybe said of masonic 
publications and of those devoted to the interest of any of the various secret societies. 

To establish a new daily paper in any of the large cities is considered a posi 
tively certain way of sinking all the money that is put in. In ten years there has 
been no new daily in New York that has made money; and one that is losing is a 
perfect maelstrom for the wrecking of capital. Such investments we have heard com 
pared (and aptly) to "pouring water down ;i rat hole." There is hardly ever any end 
to it. The paper, however, that is making money will go on doing so, notwithstand 
ing great mismanagement. That which does not quite pay, and loses a little more 
this year than last, will never pay ; but the one which has struggled for twenty years, 
and for the last five has come a little nearer to a paying basis each twelvemonth, will 
in a few years make a fortune for its owners. 

The causes of failure in newspaper enterprises may almost invariably be traced 
to poor business management. The paper that fails, fails in a way and from causes 
which would be foreseen by any intelligent observer who from day to day had an 
opportunity of overseeing such matters. 

The value of newspaper property in this country is very great. It is very in 
tangible, however. Probably the New York Herald, if offered for sale, would realize 
about two million dollars. There are two or three establishments worth a million 
of dollars each; a couple of dozen worth half a million; a larger number equal to a 
hundred thousand dollars apiece ; and there exist plenty of offices throughout the 
country publishing little papers, which a journeyman printer, going in with $250, 
and giving his note for $250 more, could induce the proprietor to resign in his favor. 
There are many newspapers conducted in the country the proprietors of which 
do not realize more than $400 profit per annum as a recompense for their labor. 

In the country, in small places, the job office is an important auxiliary. Many 
papers would be unable to exist without it, and in some the paper simply serves 
as a sort of a tender to the other department. It advertises and brings business to 
the printer. Next to the job office, the legal advertising is depended upon to furnish 
the sustenance of the newspaper. It is oftentimes the case that a man having a news 
paper established in a frontier county (and consequently a sparsely-settled region) 
takes advantage of the absence of similar publications to publish a sheet at his own 
office, printing on it the name of the shiretown in a contiguous county. He then 
sends over one or two hundred copies and obtains subscribers there, and thus 
manages to get the legal advertising of the county. In this way the enterprise pays 
perhaps not very handsomely, but it does pay. 

The most successful newspapers are those conducted in two separate depart 
ments, having an editor and a publisher. The editor controls the columns of the 
paper. It is for him to say what course the paper shall take what it shall say and 
what it shall not say; it is for the publisher to see that the bills are paid, to fix the 
prices for advertising, and to decide what shall be paid for of that which is published. 
These two positions need two very different descriptions of talent, and it is very 
rarely indeed that one man possesses both. It was well known that Mr. Greeley, 
the founder of the New York Tribune, wr.s nev*er a suitable man to have anything 
to do with the affairs of the counting-room. He, perhaps, knew this as well as 



The business of publishing a newspaper, in the hands of a good man, is a very 
respectable one, but in the hands of a man of another sort it becomes quite the 

The editor who always tells the truth who says in his columns only what lie be 
lieves exercises a great influence, and sometimes he is himself surprised to find to 
what an extent his statements are received. The newspapers which never take any 
stand upon political questions the so-called independent papers, that are Repub 
lican to-day and Democratic to-morrow do not wield much power over the minds 
of their readers. Senator Wilson , of Massachusetts, our late Vice-President, very 
accurately described their position when, in conversation one day with a Western 
editor who prided himself upon the influence of his "independent" paper, he 
said: "Your independent papers have not any influence. Your readers have been 
so educated by you that they are ]ust as independent as you are. and when you 
take any stand different from that which you have been taking, your readers cut 
loose from you." 

To make a good newspaper, to publish it, or to edit it, is said to require a pecu 
liar training. Yet many successful newspaper men have never had any, and have 
gone into the business in middle life. They have, however, all been men who 
have shown themselves possessed of a peculiar tact which is not common by any 

Editors are slow to learn that what interests them Avill not always interest their 
readers. If an editor has a personal grievance, he is greatly tempted to venti 
late it in his paper, and in that way he reveals to his readers all about a rival or 
an enemy of whom they might otherwise never have heard, Thus he makes an 
antagonist of importance, who, if let alone, would have been of no consequence 


Where there are no official announcements, to report upon people s salaries 
is necessarily somewhat hazardous. It is an interesting point, however, and one 
that cannot be overlooked in a sketch of this Jdnd. The largest salaries paid to 
editors probably do not exceed $15,000 a year, and this can only be secured on one or 
twoof the leading New York journals. In cities outside of New York $100 a week is 
good pay, and it is only in cities like Chicago that so much is to be obtained. Proba 
bly no editor in Boston, Philadelphia, or any Eastern city, except New York, receives 
as much as $5,000 a year. Reporters and city editors, and all the minor positions 
on a paper are, as a rule, poorly paid from $12 to $40 a week, according to the 
importance of the place. The business manager of a paper is frequently the best 
paid employe, and upon him the profits largely depend. 


Papers which are made up entirely of original matter are not, as a rule, very 
popular. It is a very common remark of shrewd newspaper men that they can steal 
better articles than they can buy. When an article is bought and paid for, there is 
a feeling that the whole of it must be used, even though in some parts it lack 
interest. On the other hand, there is no feeling of compunction in slicing down, 
to meet the exigencies of space or the needs of readers, a good article seen in a 
neighboring paper. The good points are saved and verbiage rejected. It is also 
a fact that the public seem to have an objection to too much reading matter. 
Among the most prosperous papers are those which have very little of it in 
their columns. In proof of this take, for instance, the Philadelphia Ledger and 
the New York News. The public also have an antipathy to supplements. Hardly 
any man finds an extra sheet in his morning paper without a feeling of annoy 
ance, or without wishing It were not there. Yet these supplements cost a great deal 
of money. 

It may not be out of place here to correct an erroneous idea which quite ex- 
tensively prevails. It is thought that the conductors of newspapers, especially of 


those appearing dinrnally, are very glad to have sensational reports great trials, 
murders, scandals, and so forth. These cause the papers to be largely sold, and the 
public infer that the proprietors reap heavy profits from the increased circulation, 
whereas the fact is that the extra expense for telegraphic news, for reportorial labor, 
type setting, etc., vastly exceeds all the profit accruing from this source. 


In the list of dailies, in point of circulation the average of Maryland (11,336) 
stands at the head of the list, with Massachusetts (9,942) second, and New York 
(8,402) third. The large average of Maryland is due to the fact that six out of the 
eight dailies, whose circulations are given, are published in Baltimore and print from 
8,278 to 20,094 copies each. Although the average circulation of the New York city 
dailies is 24,965, the large number of country dailies whose subscription lists fall below 
1,000 each (23 per cent.), reduces the average for the whole State to a third place 
in the list. In yiassachusetts 26 per cent, of the list exceeds 10,000 circulation, 
while in New York only 11 per cent, reaches that figure. The smallest daily 
average (734) is found in Mississippi, and the next (782) in Nebraska. 

Among the weeklies the largest average (4,120) is found in New York, the next 
(3,777) in Massachusetts, and the next (3,375) in the District of Columbia. A com 
parison between the cities of New York and Boston shows an average weekly 
circulation of 12,124 in the former and of 10,702 in the latter. Nevada furnishes the 
smallest weekly average (400), and Florida (478) next. Among the total averages of 
all publications that of New York (4,991) ranks first, that of Massachusetts (4,582) 
second, and that of the District of Columbia (3,697) third, while Florida (470) is found 
at the foot of the list. Between the different classes of publications the monthlies 
take the lead, with an average circulation of 5,144, and the dailies next with 3,877. 
A further analysis shows that, while the daily average of a State is influenced to a 
marked degree by the large cities within its borders, that of the weeklies serve 
as an unfailing index of the prosperity and intelligence of the rural districts. In 
the Northern States the average is large, while in the Southern States and Terri 
tories it is small. 

In a comparison of aggregates, New York heads the list with a daily circulation 
of 764,500 copies, or 244,640,000 copies per annum, of which number 599,161 copies 
are issued daily in New York city alone. The aggregate weekly circulation in the 
State is 2,459.503 copies, of which 1,782,163 copies are issued from the city offices, 
and the total aggregate amounts to 4,271,527 copies each issue, or 390,529,912 copies 
per annum. Of the total for each issue, New York city prints 3,340,300 copies, or over 
78 per cent, of the aggregate circulation of the State. The next largest total aggre 
gate for each issue is that of Pennsylvania (1,701,250), and the next Massachusetts 
(1,214,124). The total circulation of all the dailies in the United States amounts to 
2,291,041 copies, ot the weeklies 8,938,166 copies, and of all publications 13,940,304 
copies each issue, or 1,250,024,590 copies per annum. 

A comparison between the aggregate circulation of all publications in each State 
with its population (1870), shows that California issues 90 copies per annum for every 
individual on her census rolls, while New York and Massachusetts fall but little 
short of that number with an annual issue of 89 and 79 copies respectively. When 
the distance of California from the great newspaper centres of the East is considered, 
it will be seen that the local support which her publications receive is far better 
than a comparison with the averages of those States in near proximity to New York, 
Boston, or Philadelphia would indicate. At the other extreme we find Florida 
and Arkansas, the former issuing 3 and the latter 4 copies per annum to each person. 
Of the 42 separate States and Territores, 9 issue less then 10 copies, 23 less than 25 
copies, and 34 less than 50 copies per annum to each person, while in the whole of 
them combined the average number issued is 32. It will be interesting to note that 
a high average is always found in those States where a high standard of educa 
tion and good order exists a fact of no slight significance in estimating the in 
fluence of newspapers upon the government and education of the people. The 
table shows that one periodical of some kind is printed for every three persons. 
With five persons to each family this will prove one of two things, either that there 


is more than one paper regularly printed and sold for every family, or that the circu 
lations as given are too high. 

In the Territories the average area for each publication is 7,443 square miles, in 
Nevada 4,339 square miles, while in the District of Columbia the minimum is reached 
with barely 2 square miles. In the New England States the average area ranges from 
23 square miles in Massachusetts to 442 in Maine, in the Middle States from 43 in 
New York to 88 in Delaware, in the Western States from 70 in Ohio to 4,339 in 
Nevada, in the Southern States from 95 in Maryland to 1,976 in Florida. 



The COURANT, of Hartford, is the oldest, most successful, most widely-known 
journal that is published in Connecticut; nor has any in New England a more 
thoroughly national reputation. The first regular number of its weekly edition the 
CONNECTICUT COURANT was issued November 19, 1704, by Thomas Green, who set 
up the first printing press in Hartford, in order to print this paper. Since then it 
has been continuously published in the same city and under the same title, and no 
other newspaper in the United States has for so long a time had a similarly uninter- 
upted existence. It is, therefore, speaking strictly, the oldest newspaper in America . 

It appeared in time to give early utterance to the complaints that, first by sug 
gestion, then by plain statement, and later by most emphatic expression, gave 
unheeded warning of the coming revolution of a century ago. All through that 
trying period, save one brief interval when, delayed by lack of paper the pro 
prietors stopped publication long enough to build themselves a paper mill the 
COURANT regularly appeared every week. And on through the settlement of the 
war, and the discordant times that followed, and on through three more wars 
through all our periods of national prosperity and adversity, the COURANT has 
unfailingly gone out to its thousands of readers prepared under the promise of 
its projector, to take "great care from Time to Time to collect all domestic Occur 
rences that are worthy the Notice of the Publick." 

The whole history of the United States, written contemporaneously with the 
events, is spread out on record on its pages, while its advertising columns, and its 
home news are, from year to year, illustrative of the domestic and social life of the 
people and of its various changes. 

The first COURANT was of four pages, with two columns to each page. The 
COURANT of to-day, still a four-paged journal, has nine columns to the page, and is 
more than eight times as large as was the first issue; while now all the issues of the 
COURANT, daily and weekly, give their readers nearly sixty times as much to look 
over in one week as was given in a week by the COURANT a century ago. 

The HARTFORD DAILY COURANT was first printed in 1S36, and is now the only 
morning newspaper in the city. The paper, owing, perhaps, in part to its long 
service and its being so firmly established in the households of all those older 
families of the State, with whom it has come to be an indispensable institution, has 
a wide popularity. From early days it has received frequent contributions from 
prominent citizens; Hartford people regarding it as the Englishmen are said to 
regard their London Times as the place to appear in in print whenever they have 
anything to say. It would be hard to name any of the public characters of the city 
for a hundred years back who have not, participating in some discussion, or through 
some particular independent essay of their own, put their contributions in the 
"People s Column" of the COURANT. It has become a part and fixture of the city 
of Hartford and of the State of Connecticut. Its circulation is large through 
Connecticut, and its influence under judicious management has become very great. 
Outside of the State, the weekly, more especially than the daily, is taken by sub 
scribers all over the country and by many New England people abroad. 

The paper has changed proprietors ten times since 1764, either by total sale or 
by change of partnership, and since January 1, 1867, has been published by Hawley, 
Goodrich & Co. Gen. Joseph R. Hawley, the President of the Centennial Commis 
sion, is at the head of the firm, and when at home is the editor-in-chief. Mr. 
Charles Dudley Warner is associated with him, both in the partnership and as editor, 
and " My Summer in a Garden," Mr. Warner s first thoroughly successful literary 
production, was first printed in a series of contributions to this paper. Mr. Stephen 
A. Hnbbard, formerly of the Winsted (Ct.) Herald t is the third associate partner and 


editor, and the manager. The business department is in charge of Mr. W. H, Good 
rich, whose name appears in the firm, and who has been connected with the paper 
for many years. 

All the regular facilities of the modern newspaper for collecting news " worthy 
the Notice of the Pub lick " are employed by the COURANT, and it has also its special 
correspondents in various parts, both of this country and Europe. Every effort is 
made to have it truly a newspaper. Conscious of its influence and jealously careful 
of its reputation for honesty and accuracy, the managers of the COURANT maintain 
for it a high moral tone and avoid that which is sensational and untrustworthy. By 
this wise conservatism they increase the respect for the paper and the weight 
attached to its expressions of opinions, which are positively and fearlessly outspoken 
in favor of what it believes to be right. 

Relatively to its size Hartford is to-day the richest city in the United States. It 
has developed thus through a series of wisely-planned public measures and through 
the energy and private enterprise of its citizens. The COURANT has been found 
always ready to advocate that public policy which looked to the city s ultimate 
welfare, and it has always had a word of encouragement for those citizens who have 
made themselves active in opening new and promising paths of industry. It has 
seen the insurance business of Hartford grow from its very beginnings to the 
accumulation of the hundreds of millions of dollars of assets that the Hartford 
companies now have; it has watched the banks of Hartford from the founding of 
the first grow to be the richest in the State; and it has welcomed and assisted one 
after another the great manufactories that have so contributed to make Hartford 
famous. In a word, it has, from the lirst, identified itself with the best interests of 
the place, and as Hartford has prospered and grown, the COURANT has prospered 
and grown with it, and may to-day be taken as the exponent of New England 
intelligence, New England, enterprise, New England honesty, and New England 
success, which is the product of these. 



The Philadelphia PUBLIC LEDGER is among the journals which have 
chiefly contributed to establish the reputation of the American press. In 
point of enterprise as well as of originality of business procedure, the mana 
ger and proprietor of the LEDGER is not surpassed by those holding simi 
lar relations to any of our other great papers, and in no instance has the exer 
cise of those qualities secured for their owners such widespread celebrity as is 
apparent in the case of GEO. W. CHILDS. It is not alone in the Western Hemis 
phere that this distinguished journalist s fame is a topic discussed far and wide ; 
it is almost equally established and canvassed in European countries France, 
Germany, England where his achievements are held up as exemplars of Ameri 
can enterprise, power of surmounting colossal obstacles, and justice in reward 
ing merit. Biographies of him have been published in leading organs of those 
countries, the interest of the narratives being such that thousands of readers have 
perused them with avidity, and so widely discussed the matter of them that 
most Europeans who study our public men are acquainted, intimately with the 
history of the popular proprietor of the PUBLIC LEDGER, of Philadelphia. 

GEORGE W. CHILDS commenced life in a humble way, and has risen 
to wealth and eminence, and the same may be said of the PUBLIC LEDGER itself, 
which first appeared as a small four-page, one-cent sheet on the 25th of March, 
1836. The talent employed on it was, however, of a high order, and quickly 
secured it favorable notice and hearty support. The first year of the LEDGER S 
existence proved so propitious that larger accommodation was needed, and the 
paper was increased in size. Success continued to be proportionate to the 
enterprise displayed, and (as usual where profits are quickly realized) rivalry 
was induced. Other penny daily papers were started in opposition, but failed 
to loosen the firm hold on the people s regard which had been conceded the 
LEDGER as a reward of ability, consistency, and a progressive spirit. During 
and subsequent to the Abolition Kiots of 1838 the LEDGER became famous as an 
uncompromising advocate of free speech" as to slave labor, and notwith 
standing that many of its readers were for a time alienated, and that the dangers 
of extreme measures at the hands of an excited mob were ominous, the LEDGER 
bravely held on its philanthropic course, and lived to see and now survives the 
abolition of what was so long our rebuke in the eyes of other nations. The first 
rotary press ever built was used to print the LEDGER, April 9, 1847. This was a 
four-cylinder press, invented by Richard M. Hoe. The proposition to place type 
011 a cylinder and whirl it around was scouted as an absurdity by nearly all 
printers; but Mr. Swain, one of the then proprietors, had intelligent faith in 
Colonel Hoe s theory, and the machine proved, as is Avell known, a satisfactory 
success. , 

The great increase in the price of white paper and labor during the war 
rendered the publication of a one-cent journal impossible at a profit, and alter 
having lost considerable money in their endeavors to supply it at the old rates, 
Messrs. Swain & Abell determined to sell out the entire establishment. This 
they did December 3, 1864, and the following Monday Mr. GEORGE W. 
CHILDS began his brilliant career as the publisher of the PUBLIC LEDGER, and 
received a warm welcome from the leading journals of the country, to which he 
was already known as the publisher of many valuable books. Not being dis 
posed to follow up the course of his predecessors, by publishing the paper at a 
loss, Mr. Childs, on the 10th of December, 18(54, increased the subscription price 
to twelve cents per week, but this was reduced a month later to ten cents now 
twelve cents. The rates of advertising were also advanced. These mutations 


caused many to predict a disastrous decrease of support; but though there 
was an immediate declension, it proved only temporary, the excellency of the 
paper being such that few who had once been in the habit of regularly perusing 
it could long abstain from according it patronage, and the circulation speedily 
recovered and steadily increased, until in the first three months of 1876 it 
reached 7,221,500 copies a daily average of 92,584. 


The building in which the LEDGER is produced is among the grandest struc 
tural embellishments of the Quaker City, and as a newspaper office is complete 
in every particular. It is freely open at all times to citizens and strangers; and 
it is estimated that not less than one hundred thousand persons have availed 
themselves of the privilege of scrutinizing the establishment. Nothing that 
judicious liberality could secure has been left undone to provide for the comfort 
of all engaged in the production and issue of the paper. 

The great influence exerted by the PUBLIC LEDGER is largely attributable to 
the care that lias for many years been exercised to prevent the appearance ot 
extravagant statements in its columns. The imperative rule is to understate 
rather than to overstate. Throughout its long career the LEDGER has advocated 
every improvement which has tended to increase the prosperity of Philadel 
phia and the welfare of its citizens, often in the face of strong hostility ; and 
the wisdom of its pleadings has been demonstrated by the benefits which have 
accrued when its advice has been followed. The LEDGEK may be said, among 
other things, to have created a class of advertisements which contributes largely 
to a newspaper s revenue. "Wants," "Boarding," " For Sale," " To Let," &c., 
had no existence as they now appear when the LEDGER started, but have grown 
with it. 

Mr. GEORGE W. CHILDS has enlarged the usefulness and widely extended the 
influence of the PUBLIC LEDGER. His sagacity and tact enabled him to pilot 
his paper through a perilous passage in its course, and to make changes in its 
management which, in less skillful hands, might have proved disastrous. He 
has pro ed his capacity and iitness to control a great journal, which is at 
once an exponent and moulder of public opinion, and a power in the land. 
Colleagued with his rare intellectual qualities is a goodness of heart which con- 


stantly manifests itself in acts of considerate benevolence, and added to these 
is a magnetism of manner that draws and attaches to him multitudes of friends. 
"As a true journalist," said the Hon. John T. Hoffman, ex-Governor of New 
York, " he appreciates and understands the difference between the liberty of 
the press and the license of the press. He deals boldly with public matters and 
with public men in connection with them but he is always careful to recol 
lect that private character is private property, owned by that most sacred of 
all circles, the family circle, and that the man who needlessly assails it is as 
much a criminal as if he robbed the household of its dearest treasures, or 
plucked from it, for his own base uses, its fairest flower. He understands, what 
I wish all editors in America understood, not only the power of the press, but 
its proper uses and its great mission; and by his daily conduct and life declares 
his opinion that the man who owns a printing press and can use a pen has no 
more right to indite libels and stamp private reputation than the owner of a 
uniform and a sword has to cut and kill to please his fancies or to gratify his 



The Boston JOURNAL is one of the best known newspapers published in New 
England, having been established in 1833. It occupies its own building at 264 
Washington street, and is printed on an eight-cylinder and a six-cylinder Hoe 
press. It publishes two papers daily, Boston MORNING JOURNAL and Boston 
EVENING JOURNAL. The sworn statement of its publisher, subject to verifica 
tion at any time by advertisers, shows an average daily circulation of 31,500 for 
the months of January, February, March, April, and May, 187G. The circulation 
for the last week prior to this writing is as follows : 

May8 31,514 

May 9 30,889 

May 10 31.816 

May 11 31,225 

May 12 30,980 

May 13 33,854 

Average 31,713 

The JOURNAL publishes weekly and semi-weekly editions. The weekly has 
a larger circulation in New England than any paper of like character emanat 
ing from a daily newspaper office in Boston. The official postage returns show 
that the Boston JOURNAL ranks the sixth paper in the United States in the 
amount of matter sent through the mails. The JOURNAL is published by the 
Journal Newspaper Co., Boston, Mass., audits managers are Messrs. S. N. Stock- 
well and Wm. W. Clapp. It is a political, commercial and literary newspaper. 
Its enterprise is best indicated by a few items of its expenses for the year end 
ing April 1,1876. Telegraphic expenses, $33,302.70; Editorial and News Depart 
ment, $39,447.24; correspondence, $13,404.68; postage paid, $4,285. 




This great weekly newspaper is as well known throughout this country as the 
New York Herald or Harper s Magazine. It was founded in 1831, in compliance 
with a general demand for a journal Avhich should reflect the tastes of the vast 
number who find pleasure in the sports of the turf, the field, the water, and other 
pastimes, sprang at once into popular favor, and has never since its foundation 
failed to hold its position as the recognized authority and acknowledged organ 
in the matters to which its broad columns are specially devoted. Its original 
editor was William T. Porter, clarum et venerabile nomen, who continued in its sole 
charge until 1856, in which year George Wilkes became associated with him . 
Mr. Porter died in 1859, and since then Mr. Wilkes has most ably edited the 
paper, being also its proprietor, until November 1, 1875, when E. A. Buck became 
equally interested in its ownership, and assumed editorial control. Great as had 
been its previous popularity, its rapidly-increasing circulation under the new 
management shows that it still holds first place in the esteem of the public. 
Labor and expense are lavished upon it as they have never been before, and the 
reading community is always quick to appreciate generosity in its behalf. 

The SPIRIT OF THE TIMES has always been noted for its manly and independ 
ent manner of dealing with all sporting questions and events. Being thoroughly 
informed, it knows the right and dares to pursue it. Fraudulent practices find 
in it not an apologizer, but an armed and relentless foe. The true sportsman is 
the last to compromise or palter with rascality; and this paper has well earned 
the right to be considered the palladium of the interests of the true sportsman. 

The sphere of the SPIRIT OF THE TIMES is very extensive. It has sym 
pathetically expanded with the expanding wants and tastes of those to whom it 
is the special organ, until it now issues a weekly edition of twenty-eight closely- 
printed pages, which number it frequently increases to thirty-two, and on occa 
sions to thirty-six. Each number contains more printed matter than any maga 
zine or other periodical published in tne United States. Its patrons may depend 
upon it that everything of value relating to outdoor or indoor sports will find 
its way into the broad columns of the SPIRIT. 

Its several departments receive the especial attention of gentlemen fully 
competent to maintain them at the highest standard. As the organ of the turf, 
it gives most complete and accurate summaries of all events, besides graphic 
reports ot the more important meetings. In this department it has no rival. Its 
dramatic and musical columns, to which matters several pages are devoted 
weekly, are made up of brilliant and incisive critiques, correspondence from 
every large town in this country and from many foreign cities, and the latest 
intelligence ol the movements of stars. In this department it is admittted to be 
facile princeps, both at home and abroad. The rising interest in aquatic sports 
and rifle-practice has caused a full page to be set apart for each of these special 
ties, edited by experts in their respective lines, who will keep fully abreast of 
the times. One of the most remarkable features of this journal is its <: Answers 
to Correspondents." Questions upon every imaginable subject from all parts of 
the country are showered in upon it for decision, and receive the most careful 
attention and prompt and correct answers. It is the authority for the decision 
of wagers throughout the United States. The veterinary department is con 
ducted by a fully-educated surgeon, who deals conscientiously with every case 
submitted. Letters are continually received announcing the beneficial results 
of these prescriptions, which are afforded gratis to all who take the paper 


regularly. Besides these departments, billiards, atheletics, chess, etc., are 
given due attention. Editorially, the SPIRIT OF THE TIMES is the organ of no 
person, clique or party, but deals fearlessly with all questions of the day. Its 
contributed articles have a world-wide fame. 

What has been said in a simple statement of facts, and combined with the 
circumstances that the circulation of the paper is enormous, that it is read by 
the wealthy and money-spending classes as well as by the vast army of" middle 
men" who are the strength of the country, that it goes to every club in the land, 
and that the majority of its subscribers preserve its issues in permanent form 
for future reference, it will be seen, without argument, how invaluable it is as 
an advertising medium. The publishers are constantly in receipt of letters say 
ing, " My advertisement in the SPIRIT has brought me more applications than 
those in all the other papers." 

The subscription price is $5 per annum, in advance, for which the paper will 
be sent, postage paid, to any address. All communcations should be sent to 
E. A. Buck, No. 3 Park Row, New York City. 



In the front rank of the most influential and valuable newspapers of the 
West and South, is the AVALANCHE, of Memphis, Tenn. This powerful and widely- 
known journal, since its establishment in 1857, has gradually acquired a position 
of which no competitor can easily deprive it. Under the long-continued judi 
cious and enterprising management of its present publishers, Messrs. A. J. Kellar 
and R. A. Thompson the latter of whom associated with Mr. Kellar at a com 
paratively recent date the influence of the AVALANCHE has signally augmented 
in those wide sections where the paper was already so favorably known, and 
its reputation has experienced a merited extension in still broader regions. Its 
publishers have proved that they understand fully what the public expects of a 
first-class newspaper, and they have also attested their ability to produce and 
maintain a paper amply commensurate with those expectations of the public. 
The AVALANCHE is manifestly the leading independent and conservative news 
paper of the Southern States. It is issued daily and weekly, and is thickly cir 
culated throughout Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Kentucky, 
Missouri, Western Texas, etc. The yearly subscription price of the daily is ten 
dollars, that of the weekly two dollars, and special rates for both or either are 
allowed to clubs. It is devoted to news, politics, commerce, agriculture, indus 
tries, literature, science, and the development of Southern interests, both mate 
rial and social. To use its own words, it believes in the Constitution as it is, in the 
perpetuity of the Union of the States, and that the virtue and intelligence of the 
American people are equal to all the duties of self-government. It does not 
propose to ally itself with any political party except in so far as that alliance 
may accomplish good results. It does not look to nor care for the personal or 
political advancement of individuals, unless they represent vital principles 
whose enforcement is desirable ; and its relations to all existing parties are such 
that it can afford to be fair in its dealings with them to commend that in them 
which is good, and to condemn that which is hurtful. 








These important 

ournals well deserve 
a prominent place 
in a " description of 
the great newspa 
pers of the day," ami 
of the age, on ac 
count of their high 
character, great in

The AMERICAN AGRICULTURIST is one of the highest authorities on Horticul 
ture and kindred subjects. The managing editor, Dr. George Thurber, ranks 
with Prof. Asa Gray and men of like character and pursuits at home and abroad. 
While well versed in all matters connected with this journal, he is everywhere 
recognized as one of the foremost in a knowledge of botany, horticulture, etc. It 
would be a novelty to find in the AMERICAN AGRICULTURIST an erroneous recom 
mendation, or item, in botany, horticulture, or, indeed, on any other subject. 
It is to be noted, however, that the AMERICAN AGRICULTURIST, though taking 

ments on the African 
coast, and indeed al 
most everywhere in 
the world where the 
English language is 
spoken; while the 
German edition finds 
many readers all 
through Central Eu 
rope, Russia, etc. 

The above facts do 
not favor the gen 
eral opinion that far 
mers, as a class, " are 
more given to hard 
work than to reading 
about it." It is to be 
noted that among 
economical cultiva 
tors a wide system of 
lending" and "ex 
changing" papers 
prevails. Statistics 
gathered by the pub 
lishers show, for ex

single neighborhood 
there were 107 fam 
ilies, comprising 506 
persons, young and 
old, who regularly

this name at first and adhering to it, is not exclusively, by any moans, an agricultu- 
ralor horticulturaljournal. Its motto is : "For the Farm, Garden and Household." 
Its FOKTY-FOUR large pages, contain much " plain, practical and reliable " in 
formation on all subjects that pertain to the labor and physical well-being of 
the people, whether they live in City, Village or Country. It is largely taken by 
professional men, by merchants by mechanics, by operatives in manufactories, 
who cultivate their little garden plots indeed, by all classes. (For example, its 
circulation in Massachusetts alone sometimes runs as high as 17,000 copies.) 

A special feature of the AMERICAN AGRICULTURIST for a quarter of a century 
has been its unsparing and persistent exposure ot quackery and the swindlers 
that prey upon the pockets, the health and the lives of honest people, who, with 
out dishonest purposes themselves, are least likely to be suspicious of the 
statements and assurances of others. By this course this journal has saved to 
its readers and to the country many millions of dollars that would otherwise 
have gone into the pockets of harpies. In connection with the above may be 
mentioned : The Advertising rules of the AMERICAN AGRICULTURIST, which are 
perhaps more strict and more closely lived up to "at all times and in all sea 
sons^ than in any other periodical. Those in charge of this Department are 
under positive directions to rigidly scan every advertisement and every adver 
tiser; to admit nothing deceptive in substance or form; to exclude all quack 
and other medical advertisements, all secret things, all persons suspected of 
dishonesty in short, " every person offering an advertisement, who is not 
known personally or by good and well-established repute, is required to fur 
nish satisfactory references or other evidence that he has both the ABILITY and 
the INTENTION to do for his patrons just what his advertisements promise." 

The above rules, adopted at. first from conscientious motives, have, unex 
pectedly to the publishers, proved a financial success, and furnished an exam 
ple well-worthy of imitation by other publishers. The readers of this journal, 
knowing the strict rules of the publishers, read the advertisements and respond 
to them with confidence. The good advertisers receive such large custom 
through this particular journal, that they find it to their interest to give it special 
attention in sending out their business notices 110 matter what rules or requne- 
ments the paper may be compelled to adopt to keep its advertisements within 
desirable limits. Thus it has come to pass that, while the subscription rates of 
the AMERICAN AGRICULTURIST have been, and are, kept down to or below the 
cost of making and supplying the paper, its business columns have made this 
periodical a notable financial success, unequaled and even unapproached by 
any other similar journal in the world. 

It begins the New Century in the highest vigor and influence, and 1976 will 
doubtless find it among the flourishing institutions of that day. To avoid any 
interruption of its business or its arrangements by the age or the decease of any 
of the business partners, or other causes, the Management was in 1873 changed 
to that of a Chartered Company, taking the name of the leading editor and 
publisher for many years, and it is now, therefore, published by the ORANGE 
JUDD COMPANY, at 245 Broadway, New York. 

History. The AMERICAN AGRICULTURIST was originated in April, 1842, by the 
venerable A. B. Allen, who still lives in retirement at Toms River, N. J. He 
employed others to assist in publishing and editing, having a different business 
growing on his hands. In May, 1853, he called to the editorial chair Mr. Orange 
Judd, who, brought up as a farmer at the West, had at mature age sought the 
advantage of a collegiate education, andaftersome years of subsequent investi 
gation, had devoted three years (1850 1853) to the careful study of agricultural 
chemistry, and agricultural science generally, with Profs. Silliman, Norton, etc., 
in Yale College. After a short service as editor, Mr. Judd became sole pro 
prietor, and continued thus until the magnitude of the business required him to 
call in business associates, including among others, Samuel Burnham. Esq., 
who has now been a "right hand man " for about ten years; C. C. North, Esq., 
the present treasurer, who came in in 1873. In 1853 Mr. Judd called to his editorial 
aid Dr. George Thurber, above alluded to, who has since given untiring 
attention to this journal, and also is now chieflly entrusted with the editorial 


management. Among its editorial and contributing corps may be named 
Henry Stewart, Col. Geo. E. Waring, Jr., Timothy Banker, Esq., Col. Mason 
C. Weld, A. B. Allen, Peter Henderson, Prof. Asa Gray, Prof. W. O. Atwater, 
L. C. Root, Hon. Frederic Munch, "Aunt Sue," Faith Rochester, and others. 

The German edition (der Amerikanischer Agriculturist) was started in 1858, and 
has been the only German agricultural and horticultural paper in this country 
that has had a continuous existence for a period of eighteen years. 



THE CHURCHMAN was established about one-third of a century ago, and its exist 
ence was continued under different names until the end of the year 1866, with 
indifferent pecuniary success, notwithstanding its editorial management was at 
various points of its history in the hands of very able men. In 1866 it was called the 
Connecticut Churchman, and its actual circulation was hardly 1,500. 

In December of that year it was purchased by the present proprietors, and from 
that time on it has enjoyed uniform prosperity, its circulation rising rapidly from 
1,500 up to 17,500, and this notwithstanding its subscription price is larger than that 
of any other religious journal in the United States. 

This growth is due to the determined perseverance of the managers in their 
endeavor to make THE CHURCHMAN a religious paper which should exhibit, in all 
the matters pertaining to its specialty, the enterprise and the literary excellence 
of the best secular journals. 

It occupies confessedly the first rank among religious and literary weeklies. 

At the beginning of the year 1875 it made a great advance in meeting the need 
of the time. In effect a weekly journal of high character is a maga/ine, made up of 
matter which merits to be preserved as much as any of t he best monthlies or 
quarterlies. Therefore its form should be adapted to this. Recognizing the prin 
ciple, the managers of THE CHURCHMAN adopted its present shape and size. It 
contains thirty-two pages, nine by thirteen inches in size, and is sent to subscribers 
most conveniently pasted and folded. The folding, the pasting and the cutting are 
done by one process, on a machine built expressly for THE CHURCHMAN. 

THE CHURCHMAN Is the most reliable exponent of the attitude and the prin 
ciples of the Protestant Episcopal Church. 

It represents adequately the entire Church, and is not an organ for the dissemi 
nation of merely party principles, or the opinions of one man or one clique. It 
gives week by week with remarkable promptness all Church news, and treats ably 
the civil topics of the day, as viewed from a churchman s standpoint. 

In brief, THE CHURCHMAN is a weekly magazine of ecclesiastical intelligence 
and devotional and general reading, and is the largest and most widely-circulated 
weekly in the Protestant Episcopal Church. It contains each year one-half more 
reading matter than "Harper s Magazine," more than twice as much as the "Galaxy" 
or " Scribner s," and three and a half times as much as the "Atlantic." 




ER was founded in 1813. In the 
following year it became the 
property of the late Nathan 
Hale, whose connection with 
it only ceased with his death. 
Mr. Hale was the first publish 
er and editor of a newspaper 
in the United States to print 
editorials daily and continu 
ously, and his articles very 
soon acquired a national repu 
tation. His writings were dis 
tinguished by breadth, intelli 
gence ami great candor. From 
the first, he rigidly excluded 
from the news and advertising 
columns of his paper every 
thing which had an immoral 
intent or tendency, and this 
commendable rule is still ad 
hered to. Mr. Hale likewise 
kept the editorial columns ex 
clusively under his control 
and for his own use ; and the 
frequent writings of Edward 
Everett, .Tared Sparks, William 
Ellery Channing, and of num 
berless celebrated men of the 
day were inserted only as com 
munications. The editorials 
were and are still the free and 

untrammelled expression of the editoiial staff. No paper in the United States 
is edited with greater care and fidelity or with a more strict regard to the inter 
ests of our great nation. The expenses of its editorial and news departments 
are six times as great as they were only ten years ago. Its editor-in-chief and also 
its financial editor are proprietors, and constant writers, thus inducing the 
strongest sense of responsibility that self-interest can create. It has select and 
able special correspondents in the prominent cities of Europe and this country. 
It makes of literary, dramatic and fine art criticism a speciality, with the ablest 
writers to be had on its staff. The result is a large and increasing circle of 
readers, both in the business and the literary world, and among the very best 
people of the country. Indeed, the paper is the recognized organ of the banks 
and other inonied institutions of Massachusetts, and of the different colleges 
and other literary institutions of New England. 

The paper is located in a handsome building, of which a cut is herewith 
given, on Court street, and on the site of the very structure in which Benjamin 
Franklin made his advent as a journalist. Its composing room is lofty and com 
modious. Its editorial rooms are convenient and inviting; they occupy the 
entire fourth floor. The counting room, mailing room, and press room engross 
the first floor and basement. To accomplish the labor of printing and folding 
in season for mails, one of Hoe & Go s fastest presses, and four folding machines 
are run.

was established August 20, 1773, 
by Wm. Goddard, a native of 
New England, and is now one 
hundred and three years old, 
being not only the oldest paper 
in Baltimore, but also one of 
the oldest and most influential 
in the United States/ It Avas first 
issued as the Maryland Journal 
and Baltimore Advertiser , a name 
it bore until 17C9, when it was 
changed to that under which it 
appears at the present day, 
Goddard conducted the journal 
until 1793, and from that time to 
1853 it passed through several 
different ownerships. In 1853 the 
firm became Robert A. Dobbin 
and Charles C.Fulton (the pres 
ent senior proprietor), and was 
conducted under that firm until 
1802, when Mr. Dobbin died and 
Mr. Fulton purchased his inter 
est, thus becoming sole proprie 
tor, associating his son Albert 
K. Fulton, in the future conduct 
of the paper, and at this period 
commenced its most successful 
career, which has remained un 
broken to the present day. It 
was in the columns of this 
journal that our national an 
them, " The Star Spangled Banner," first saw the light, having been set up 
by Mr. Samuel Sands, a gentleman still living, a few hours after it was 
originally written by Mr. Keys, and it was several times during the war 
of 1812 that the issue of the paper was omitted on account of the editors and 
journeymen being engaged in repulsing the British attacking NorthPoint. There 
are other very interesting circumstances connected with the history of the AMERI 
CAN, but space forbids their mention. In 1875, its old qua- ters having been found 
too contracted for its steadily-increasing business, a handsome and commodious 
edifice was erected for its accommodation on the corner of South and Baltimore 
streets, and the AMERICAN is now the possessor of one of the Hiiest and most 
imposing newspaper offices in the country, and well worth a visit from the many 
travelers in transit through Baltimore this summer. Its counting-room is uni 
versally conceded to be the handsomest in the country. Visitors to the Centen 
nial will find a painting of the building, and also a lac-simile of the first issue ot 
the AMERICAN, on exhibition in tho newspaper building. 





The " COURRIER" has arrived to-day at that period of complete development to 
-which a half century of hard work, independence and progress has conducted it. 

Started on the 1st March, 1828 the date of its first number it passed through many 
trials and difficulties before it achieved success, and was assured of a permanent ex 
istence. The idea of its founder was an ambitious one, viz.: to publish in the States 
an organ in the French language the language of the highest European society and 
to excite attention to French literature, which at that time was entirely ignored in 
this country. At that time there was no question of politics or of commerce, manu 
factures, international interests or of any private interests ; but simply to intro 
duce and inculcate the taste for French literature, which, in consequence of the very 
spirit of the country, has not, even since that time, made the progress here 
which could naturally have been expected. However, the idea succeeded. With its 8 
pages in quarto, of 3 columns each, appearing every Saturday at the annual subscrip 
tion price of $8 the "COURRIER," from its very commencement, was astonished atits 
success. Very soon, to keep pace with the demand for it, from new subscribers, it was 
obliged to reprint its earlier numbers. In less than two years from its start it became 
& semi- weekly ; to its Saturday edition was added one on Wednesday ; to be sure it 
consisted of 4 pages only, but it was one step in advance, and was justified by the 
patronage which it obtained. 

However, the paper changed hands several times. In 1829 it passed into the posses 
sion of Mr. Felix Lacoste, who died consul-general of France at New York in 1859. In 
1836 Mr. Lacoste transferred the " COURRIER " to Mr. Ch. de Behr, who was succeeded 
by Mr. Frederic Gaillardet. 

It was in November, 1839, that Mr. Gfaillardet took the editorship of the "COURRIER 
DES ETATS-UNIS," and from his very first number he inaugurated a programme which 
was a striking success. Mr. Gaillardet had seen clearly the brilliant opening that 
there was for a French newspaper in the United States. He said in substance 
"There is a great field to be occupied by a newspaper which can become both the 
representative and the defender of the French nation in America, which will uphold 
the traditions of our manners, of our customs and of our language amongst the popula 
tion of French origin; which can offer itself as a friend and ally to this population in 
upholding its native idioms and ideas, and in carrying the French diction to all parts 
of the new world it will sustain and rally round it all those who speak this language 
and of these different scattered members it shall make, if it be possible to do it, one 
body and one spirit." 

What Mr. Gaillardet said in 1839 we think to-day, and we repeat that a French news 
paper in America has no higher duty and no position more useful than to act as an 
intermediary between all the groups of French nationality, not only in the United 
States, but throughout the whole of the new world ; to make them known to each 
other ; to bring them together as much as possible and to mutually assist them. It Is 
this idea, constantly and energetically carried out, which is the secret of the greatest 
and most durable successes of the " COURRIER DES ETATS-UNIS." 

It is this idea constantly kept in view by all those connected with its administration, 
since the time of Mr. Gaillardet up to the present date, which, repeated from the St. 
Lawrence to Cape Horn, has caused to spread in all the cities, towns and villages where 
Frenchmen are to be found, the name of one paper especially devoted to their interests 
and sufficiently established to defend them. Thus it is that, little by little, the 


"CouRRiER " is now to be fount! in the most distant points of the American continent, 
and that it is welcomed as a friend in all the French homes in the Canadas, Louisiana, 
the Pacific coast, Mexico, West Indies, and in Central and South America. 

In saying this we do not fear any contradiction. 

There may be great differences of opinion on political points, or on any other matter 
which is open to controversy ; for we do not expect everybody to hold the same 
opinions as ourselves; but, at all events, we fear no denial when we proclaim positively 
that the "COURKIER," whilst continually reminding Frenchmen of the rights which, 
have been conferred on them and the duties which are imposed upon them as mem 
bers of the American family, has always been a newspaper thoroughly French ; work 
ing ardently to rally in the name of the mother country the French people scattered 
throughout the vast extent of the American continent ; studying their wants, sustain 
ing their rights, and, above all, encouraging them with all the energy in its power to- 
lay aside all useless differences and animosities, and to remember only that they are 
children of the same country, and that their highest interest, as well as their most 
imperative duty, is to hold together, to sustain and to help each other. 

Few words are necessary to recall the progressive steps of THE COURRIER from its 
commencement up to the new epoch which opens to-day. 

As we have previously stated, THE COURRIER DES ETATS-UNIS dates from the 1st 
March, 1828. Eighteen months after, a new edition, published on Wednesday, was 
added to the original Saturday one. This semi-weekly edition was sufficient at thai 
time, when the news from Europe only readied us by sailing vessels, and when, 
besides, the postal communications with the interior of the country were so uncertain 
that, in the year 1833, our subscribers in Philadelphia complained that they only re 
ceived their papers three days after publication. 

Mr. Gaillardet s connection with the paper was coincident with the inauguration of 
trans- Atlantic steam navigation. Then commenced, also, the publication of this paper 
three times a week. The exciting period of 1848, in its turn created new demands, 
calling for frequent extras, making an average of four or five numbers per week. 
However, it was not until three years later namely, in May, 1851 that the regular 
daily edition was commenced. A short time previously namely, in the preceding 
month of April was commenced a weekly edition of sixteen quarto pages specially in 
tended for subscribers scattered throughout the interior of the country and for the 
benefit of our American readers. Towards the end of the same year in November 
THE COURRIER increased the size of its paper, thus enabling it to give more complete 
details of the subjects treated about. At last, on the 1st November, 1864, the paper 
was still further enlarged and appeared in its present form. Tims nothing further 
was needed (at least for the present) but the Sunday edition to meet the demands of a 
large and varied circulation. 

To-day THE COURRIER DES ETATS-UNIS publishes a daily edition (seven numbers per 
week) at the price of $12 per year. A weekly edition especially for Europe, same size 
as the daily edition, at $6 per year. A weekly edition, containing twenty pages, at $5 
per year. 

This last edition, of which the circulation is very large, goes more especially Into 
the Western States, Louisiana, Cuba, the West Indies, Mexico, California, and all the 
countries on the Pacific Coast as far as Chili. 

Such is the present position of THE COURRIER DES ETATS-UNIS, and it is a source of much 
pleasure to us to acknowledge that its progress has been constantly sustained, en 
couraged and accelerated by the sympathy of the large majority of the French resi 
dents in America. We thank them most cordially, and assure them that we shall 
endeavor in the future, as we have done in the past, to merit their good-will by sus 
taining their special interests in America, whenever the occasion therefor arises, and 
also to inspire Americans with respect and love for France, in return for the affection 
and respect which she has always shown to their country.

In printing these papers no less than three million, four hundred and twenty-six 
thousand, six hundred and ten (3,426,610) pounds of paper were consumed. 

This exhibit almost passes belief. Had we not examined the books of the estab 
lishment, and.copied the figures ourselves, we should have feared that a mistake had 
been made somewhere. But no mistake has been made. The circulation of THE SUN 
for the fifty-two weeks given, reached the enormous aggregate of forty-six million, 
seven hundred and ninety-nine thousand, seven hundred and sixty-nine! And its 
average daily circulation, on week days, is now continuously over one hundred and, 
thirty-eight thousand copies! 

Such unparalleled success, such unexampled popularity, such vast prosperity, can 
only come from a wide-spread and deep-seated recognition of the trustworthiness of 
THE SUN as a purveyor of news, and of its fearlessness and faithfulness as an expositor 
of public affairs, an exposer of public wrongs, an advocate of morality and religion, 
and an upholder of the rights of the people ; and, in truth, as to these grand features 
of journalism THE SUN has an exalted and commanding position. It is independent of 
party. It aims always to bring out the truth, no matter who may be helped or hurt by 
its publication ; to support honest and capable men for office, no matter to what party 
they belong ; to secure the enactment of good laws, no matter by whom they are 
proposed ; never in any case to admit into the columns of the paper anything that is 
contrary to public or private morality, or which cannot be read in the family circle ; 
and always to maintain an independent attitude in the decision of i-eligious questions, 
treating all sides with fairness, and giving all sides a hearing, and endeavoring to 
measure and judge them all by the standard of the divine laws. 

It is a common remark in New York that " everybody buys THE SUN Everybody 
knows that THE SUN tells the truth about public measures, and public men, and public 
plunderers, without fear or favor. Everybody loves to road the truth about his con 
spicuous neighbors, no matter how cutting it may be ; yea, though it be " sharper than 
any two-edged s\vord, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of 



the joints and marrow." This universal love of truth THE SUN, with marked success, 
perpetually aims to gratify, and therefore, in every number it has toothsome provender 
for the hungry multitude. 

When one enters the first-floor corner door of the spacious and elegant edifice on 
the corner of Nassau and Frankfort streets, opposite the City Hall, which is known as 
THE NEW YOKK SUN Building, he finds himself in 


of the establishment. This is a spacious room with lofty ceiling, running the whole 
depth of the building. It is divided into a front and rear office. In the front oince are 
desks at which advertisers can write or modify their advertisements. One can hardly 
enter this office at any hour between 8 o clock In the morning and 10 at night without 
finding it alive with employe s and customers. There is a constant rush of persons 
bringing advertisements, coming for answers to advertisements, calling to purchase 
THE SUN, or to subscribe for it, and seeking information or bringing information ; 
altogether presenting an animated spectacle. 

The rear office in the Publication Room is fitted up with desks for the cashier, 
advertisement clerks, mail clerks, and other employe s, and with the ponderous safes 


of the establishment. It also contains the inner and private office of the publisher, 
Isaac W. England, Esq., who, though not old in years, is a veteran in newspaper aflairs. 
Mr. England is widely known among newspaper and business men. His integrity, 
though so unbending as to make things uncomfortable for those who have " crooked " 
interests to serve, is tempered with such genuine good nature and consideration for 
the rights and feelings of others, that honest, industrious people like to work under 
his authority. He is a large stockholder in THE SUN, and cherishes an enthusiastic 
affection for the paper which vitalizes and reinforces all his faculties, and enables him 
to thrive bodily on his labors, as Avell as pecuniarily on his profits. 
Having surveyed the Publication Office, let us now ascend to the 


or " Brain Box," as printers call it, of the establishment. This is situated on the ,,nird 
floor, and consists of a suite of four spacious rooms, forming an L, fronting on Printing 
House Square, and running along Frankfort street the whole depth of the building from 
front to rear. We enter the rear room, which is occupied by the reporters and editorial 
attache s of THE SUN office all young men, full of vitality and enthusiasm, who love 
their work, and are proud of their paper. They shirk nothing, but are always ready 
to start for Coney Island or California, for Alaska or Australia ; to take part in a rail 
road collision or a steamboat explosion ; to go down in a diving bell or up in a balloon. 
These young men contribute much to the vivacity and variety of THE SUN, and are to 
be estimated among the elements of its success. 

From the reporters room, we pass into the apartment of the MANAGING EDITOR. 

The position of the Managing Editor of THE SUN is a most important and onerous 
one. He has to keep a wide-awake eye not only on the entire city, but also on the 
Union at large, and has the whole reportorial force of THE SUN under his command. 
With the exception of such persons as the Editor-in-Chief admits to an audience, the 
Managing Editor has to meet all inquirers, and pacify or discipline all grumblers, and 
dispose of all comers who, having axes to grind, visit the editorial rooms of THE SUN 
for the purpose of having them brought to an edge. 

Another important member of the editorial force of THE SUN is the NIGHT EDITOR. 
The Night Editor comes on duty at 4 o clock P.M., and stays till the last page is made 
up, ready for the stereotypers. He finds out what has been done by his associates 
before he came in ; looks over the proofs, makes needful corrections, and decides what 
must go in the paper and what can be omitted ; examines and condenses correspond 
ence which comes by the night mail, and also the late telegrams ; writes notices of 
important matters and gives directions as to the nature and length of late reports, and 
fixes up news matters outside of the local departments. The Night Editor holds a 
position of great responsibility ; inasmuch as. with the exception of such articles as 
the Editor-in-chief or the Managing Editor has marked " Must "which means that 
articles thus marked nust go in lie has absolute control of the contents of the paper; 
consequently, on his judgment in selecting articles to go in, the character of the paper 
of the next morning in a great measure depends. 

In addition to the foregoing, there are the City Editor, the Day Editor, the Financial 
Editor, the Political Editor, the Market Editor, the Literary Editor, the Musical Editor, 
the Agricultural Editor, and the Mail and Weekly Editor, whose several functions are in 
dicated by their titles. Then there is the Ship News, and the Telegraphic News, 
furnished by associations, by correspondents, and by agents. Then there are the 
Special Correspondents stationed in the important cities of America and Europe. Then 
there is the army of Voluntary Correspondents which the enterprise and liberality of 
THE SUN have called forth, u and which covers the land for multitude." Nothing of 
importance can occur anywhere, that some agent or friend of THE SUN will not at 
once telegraph to it, or describe by letter in case there be no telegraph station in 
reach. Liberal pay inevitably awaits all such voluntary news-senders or news-bringers 
at THE SUN office. 

And still further: Besides all the aforementioned persons, there are gentlemen oi 
high culture and special gifts on the editorial pay-roll of THE SUN, who constitute a 
powerful force, and are able to furnish, on call, articles of the highest merit on any 
subject which it may be desired to discuss in the columns of the paper. 

We have still to mention the most important member of the editorial force of THE 
SUN, to wit : Charles A. Dana, Esq., the EDITOR-IN-CHIEF, whose function is one oi 


supreme importance. He must hold the entire force in a firm but elastic grasp, 
marshal all its diverse elements into harmony without impairing their individualities, 
and give consistency and unity to the general sweep and purpose of the journal. He 
must scan, day by day, the events of the world, and single out for publication and 
comment those which are either of the most general or special importance, and indi 
cate to his subordinates what they are severally to write about, what the scope and 
tone of their articles shall be, and what shall be the policy of THE SUN on every subject. 
Mr. Dana is the largest stockholder of the Company, and the editorial monarch of 
the establishment. His sway is imperial and despotic. ~Ko one does or can call Jtim 
to account. He has had large experience in newspaper affairs, in subordinate as well 
as controlling positions. He has been reporter, city editor, managing editor, New York 
correspondent, Washington correspondent. Paris correspondent, and foreign corre 
spondent generally. Like Napoleon, therefore, he knows his profession through all its 
grades, and can judge and do justice to all his subordinates, and pity all their WOQS 
because he has felt the same. He has a wide knowledge of public affairs, and also of 
business, commercial and scholastic matters ; has traveled much, both in Europe and 
America ; speaks the modern languages with fluency ; has an intimate acquaintance 
Avith many of the leading scholars and statesmen of both hemispheres ; is familiar Avith 
literature, philosophy, and metaphysics ; sympathizes with the progressive and ame 
liorating movements of the times ; has always been an audacious and plucky newspaper 
belligerent, but fights without malice, and is a generous conqueror. Several years 
;ago it Avas said of Mr. Dana : 

" He receives the hardest blows with serenity of countenance and of spirit, as 
though he heard gentle angels Avhispering : Peace, Charles, prithee peace ! Possess 
thy soul in patience and bide thy time, for that vain man Aveareth a scalp Wherewith, 
in the Providence of God, thou shalt ere long adorn thy wigwam ! and he doth possess 
his soul in patience, and he also bideth his time, and finally, like a true journalist, lie 
conspicuously takes the scalp of the offender at the very time it would be most awk 
ward for the victim to appear in society bereft of that ornamental hereditament." 

Tliis declaration seems to have been instigated by the spirit of prophecy. One 
after another the foes of THE SUN have gone down before the prowess of its " Chief," 
until there is no other Avigwam in the country so rich in scalps as Mr. Dana s. 

Mr. Dana is a hard Avorker. THE Sux is his pet. He loves it and is proud of it. 
He keeps a vigilant eye upon everything ; and, like his subordinates, is ready to do 
any piece of A\ r ork Avhatever that may come to his hand. His literary and editorial 
executiveness is surpassingly prompt and decisive. This helps him to gu through his 
work with a celerity which relieves it of much of its burdensomeness. He is genial 
and companionable Avith his assistants, but no one can more effectively assume the 
imperial role Avheu distinctions of position should be made apparent, and the lines of 
order should be sharply drawn. 

Mr. Dana is in all respects a prosperous gentleman. His copyright as editor of 
Appleton s New American Cyclopedia is large, his receipts for salary and dividends 
from THE SUN are much greater, and altogether he has a most princely income. 

The members of the editorial force of THE SUN, one hundred and five in number, 
are loyal to the paper, and to one another, from the Chief to the loAvest member of the 
staff. The reporters stand by THE SUN ; the Managing Editor stands by the reporters; 
arul the Editor-in-Chief stands by the entire force. This is an important point, and 
gives a unity, and enthusiasm, and self-reliance to the men Avhich nothing else could 

And noAv let us see how all the work done by this array of accomplished and indus 
trious men is finally brought to a focus in the pages of THE SUN. 

. It is 10 o clock at night as we mount to the editorial rooms. The apartment of the 
Editor-in-Chief, in the northeast corner of the edifice, looking out upon City Hall Park, 
is all aglOAV. Ordinarily he only comes down at night to take a general survey of affairs 
and look over his proofs, but to-night matters of uncommon importance have come to 
hand, and he is at his post, with a full staff, at a later hour than usual. 

Everybody seems to Avork as though under Avhip and spur. Reporters from the 
public meetings, fires, fights, and scenes of accident, and crime, rush m Avith their 
notes and set to Avork as if for life. Messengers hurry to and fro from telegraph 
offices. Other messengers likeAvise hurry to and fro from divers other points. Visitors 
come hurrying in, all out of breatl 1 , wanting to see the Managing Editor or the Chief, 
on matters of pressing importance, and all are disposed of with promptness, celerity 


and courtesy. Mangled and tumbled papers from the city, the country, and the utter 
most parts of the civilized world, lie in heaps upon the floors. The pens scratch, the 
scissors click, the Chiefs bell rings sharply out for the boy, and the "condensers " 
three men whose only business is to take the core out of correspondence, reports and 
extracts, and articles from other papers are "refining as with a refiner s fire " the 
matter which is to appear in the morning s paper. 

The space in THE SUN is too valuable to admit anything except the very cream 
and marrow of the news and information to its columns ; wherefore, telegraphic dis 
patches are reduced to "Sparks," long communications to paragraphs, paragraphs to 
41 Personals, and articles to " Jottings." 

THE Sux Condensers are men who can see at a glance what is interesting in an 
article, and what is useful, and what is needful, and what is of no account ; and they 
" kill " without mitigation or remorse. 

And now midnight approaches ; the turmoil has died away ; the Chief and his 
immediate staff have disappeared; the reporters have gone, except a few who have but 
recently come in ; and the Managing and Night Editors, with a few trusty assistants, 
.are all that remain on duty. And now let us " follow copy " up-stairs to the 

where the type-setters ply their nimble fingers. 

The composing room of THE SUN offlce is a fine, light, airy apartment, and is fitted 
up with the utmost elegance and convenience. The exact cost of the outfit including 
type, furniture, and materials for stereotyping was $12,290.72. The regular force of 
compositors, or type-setters, is sixty-five ; and a fine-looking, intelligent company ol 
men they are. 

The compositors have been at work for many hours. They take it easily at first, 
from 3 P.M. to 5 ; then there is a recess of two hours, and at 7 o clock they come back 
for the real work of the day, and stay till 2 o clock, A.M., or as much longer as may be 
necessary. As a usual ihing, when 2 o clock comes*; all but four of the compositors are 
.allowed to go, and the four retained are kept till the paper is sent to press. The com 
positors work by the piece, and their average earnings are $25 a week ; but some ol 
them make $45 a week, when they do their best. 

After the type-setters have been at work for an hour, or less, the proof- taker begins 
his work. The type which has been set is put in an orderly way and fastened in its 
place on long brass beds called galleys, which are then run under the proof-press, 
whereby impressions, or proofs, are taken on long slips of paper. These are sent to 
the proof-readers, who read them over for errors, and mark all mistakes on the mar 
gins of the proofs, which are then taken back to the compositors, who correct the 
errors in the type, after which new proofs, called revises, are taken, to see if every 
thing is right. If any errors are found in the revises they are also marked and 
corrected; and when everything has been at last set right in a galley of type, it is 
transferred to the make-up table; that is, to the table where the type is finally put in 
ihe forms or pages of the newspaper. 

About 11 o clock the foreman of the composition room sends word to the Night 
Editor that he is ready to "make up;" that is, that he is ready to put the type into 
the pages, and send them to the stereotypers. On receiving this notice the Night 
Editor appears with a separate set of proofs, taken expressly lor him, and over which 
he has been studying and working for several hours. 

There is already matter enough in type to fill the columns of the paper twice over, 
and more is coming all the time. The telegraphic lightnings are pouring it in; the 
reporters are writing it out by the column; and messengers are coming with all 
manner of communications " Very important, sir, and must appear in the morning s 
paper, sir." 

And sb the Night Editor works away, studying over his proofs, gradually singling 
out what must go in, whether or no, and no mistake; also what may be left out; also 
what shall be left out. When, therefore, he receives notice from the foreman of the 
composition room, that he is ready to "make up," the Night Editor goes up to the 
fifth story with a clearly defined purpose. Under his direction the foreman rapidy 
lifts column after column of the news and editorials into the form which is to con 
stitute the second or editorial page of the next morning s SUN. The last page and the 
third page, composed largely of advertisements, have already been made up and sent 


to the stereotypers. The first page, which is the last one made up, is yet to come. 
Meanwhile, let us step into 

and see what the Vulcans are about. 

The stereotyping room is one of the most interesting departments of THE SUN" 
establishment. It is occupied, and the stereotyping process performed by eight splendid 
fellows, whose brain and muscle, as well as their skill and fidelity, are of a high grade. 

The stereotyping process is peculiar, and differs widely from that in ordinary use. 
The Bullock presses used in printing THE SUN require stereotype plates which can be 
affixed to their cylinders, and hence the plates must be cast in half-circles; and they 
must be cast, too, with the utmost expedition and in unusual numbers. There are 
seven presses used by THE SUN, each of which prints two complete copies of the paper 
at an impression. Therefore, no Jess tJian fourteen complete sets of plates have to be 
cast for THE SUN, so that it can have fourteen papers printed consentaneously, in 
order to get off its immense edition within the brief period between the hour when the- 
paper goes to press and the time of its delivery to buyers, and at the post-office for the- 
early mails. The process of stereotyping is performed in this wise : 

The flat page of type is first warmed on a hollow iron table heated by steam r 
then a sheet of thick paper, such as steel engravings are printed on, which is chemi 
cally prepared by soaking in a mixture until it becomes nearly of the consistency ol 
paste, is laid upon the face of the type, and beaten down with a heavy and stiff brush, 
until every letter, rule, and point is perfectly moulded in the soft mass of paper. All 
hollow places are then filled up with a preparation of plaster of Paris; after which- 
another sheet of the prepared paper is laid upon the first, and beaten down in the 
same manner. By this means a substantial matrix of the entire page is formed. The 
type and matrix are then swathed in blankets, placed on the hollow, steam-heated 
table, run under a press on one end of the table, and subjected to a heavy pressure, 
wliile at the same time it is baked by the heat. It is then taken out and the paper 
matrix is removed from the type. It is firm, but pliable, and capable of resisting a 
high degree of heat. It is the flexibleness of the matrix, even more than the celerity 
with which it can be produced, which gives it its peculiar value; for it is its flexible- 
ness which enables a cylindrical plate to be cast from it. 

After the matrix lias been perfected as above described, it is placed in a reversed 
position in an iron mould of the exact curvature of the press cylinder; the melted 
type metal is then poured in, and in two minutes a stereotype plate of the page of 
type in the form of a half-circle is taken out and handed over to the trimmers to be 
fitted to the press cylinder; the mould is again filled with metal, and another plate is 
cast; and so the process goes on, until fourteen casts of each page have been taken, 
trimmed, and sent down to the press-room. 

We will now step on the elevator along with a set of the stereotype plates and: 
descend with them to 


The Press-Room is situated in the basement of the edifice, and is a most capacious 
apartment. When we arrive at the press-room, at half past one o clock in the morn 
ing, matters are in no very lively trim. Everything is quiet. There is not yet even 
a hiss of steam. Stalwart men are stretched out on huge piles of paper, fast asleep. 
Some of them lie face downward, with their arms stretched out at full length, and 
sleeping as though they would never again wake. Others are lying all in a heap, others 
flat on their backs, showing grimy but honest faces; and all are sleeping soundly. 
Other men are bringing in huge rolls of paper from the dampening room and arranging 
them conveniently at hand for the pressman. 

The Bullock press, on which THE SUN is printed, prints from a continuous sheet, 
which is wound up in the form of a huge cylinder. The machine for wetting down or 
dampening the paper is so constructed that it unwinds it from one roll and at the 
same time winds it up into another roll; and as the paper thus passes from one roll to 
another it is subjected to a uniform shower of the finest spray, which dampens it ia 
every fibre to just exactly the degree which is requisite for it to print to the best 
advantage the construction of the press, the rapidity of the motion, and the force of the 
pressure, all considered. Attached to the dampening machine is an invention of Mr. 
England s, which ingeniously meae-ires the roll of paper and tells just how many SUNS 
it will make. .This is done for the purpose of checkinsr the tendency of paper manufac- 


turers to put so much body in their stock that a roll of paper of given weight sometimes 
falls short in length to the extent of many copies of THE SUN T . 

And now, as the pressmen have begun to wake up, and are beginning to put the 
stereotype plates on the cylinders, and the steam begins to give tokens of its coming, 
let us go up to the composition room again, where over the first panre of THE SUN the 
final struggle of matter against space is to begin. "This," says the Night Editor, 
pointing at it as he speaks, " is the costliest page on this planet." It is now half-past 
one o clock A..M. The form must be in the stereotyper s room in fifteen minutes. 
There is matter enough on the make-up table to fill four pages, and every line of it is 
important. What s to be done ? especially as a fresh batch of copy has just come up 
marked "MUST," from the Managing Editor, who is still hard at work below. No\v is 
seen the value of understanding every part of one s business, especially the mechanical 
part. The Night Editor is a practical printer, copy-cutter, proof-reader, anything and 
everything that may be needed. He looks over the type does not have to resort to 
the proofs and orders out this and cuts down that, and reads the proof of new articles 
from the type and finally "Good Night" comes from the telegraph offices and the 
page is completed, and the form is locked up (that is, fastened so the type cannot 
fall out) and trundled into the stereotyper s room exactly at 15 minutes to 2 o clock A.M. 

And now look at the stereotypers. They are also on the home-stretch, and how 
magnificently they work. Every man knows just exactly what to do, and does it to 
perfection just in the nick of time ; and the total result is that four casts of the first 
page of THE SUN are on their way to the lower regions in just twenty minutes from 
the time the stereotypers received the form. That is. only five minutes to a cast. 
The other ten casts follow at a more rapid rate. 

From the stereotype room we now go down to the publication office, to see the 
newsmen and newsboys buy their checks. When the delivery of the paper begins, 
which will be in a few minutes, the rush will be so great that there will be no 
time to make change ; and so newsmen and newsboys provide themselves with metal 
checks, about the size of a two-cent piece, on which is stamped the number of papers 
for which they have paid. If a newsboy wants 12 papers, he pays 16 cents THE SUN- 
IS sold to him at 1% cents a copy and receives a check which entitles him to 12 papers. 
This check he presents to the man below of whom he gets his papers, who de 
livers his 12 SUNS to him, and drops the check through a hole in the delivery coun 
ter, into a box kept for the purpose. The smallest check calls for three papers, and 
the largest for eight thousand. 

On entering the publication office, we find a number of men and boys buying their 
checks, and several tired little fellows lying asleep on the floor ; and on the grating 
outside, through which the warm steam and hot air come up, are other children also- 
lying asleep. It is a raw and chilly morning, and the "iron bedstead," as the little 
fellows call the grating, affords them a luxurious couch, through which the warmth 
comes upon their pinched and withered and ill-clad bodies like airs from Heaven. 

And now back to the press-room again. At 7 minutes to 2 the first press starts and 
delivers 200 papers a minute. In a few minutes the counters begin to count off, and 
get the papers ready for delivery to the newsboys and newsmen. At 2 minutes after 
2 the second press begins to throw of its 200 SUNS a minute. At 9 minutes after 2 the 
third press starts ; and so they keep on until all the presses are running and throw 
ing off fourteen hundred SUNS a minute, two of the presses printing 300 papers a min 
ute each. Although the SUN now has seven presses in operation, the popular demand 
is so constantly increasing that it has ordered another of double size, and the capacity 
of 50,000 per hour, which, after being shown at the Centennial Exhibition, will be set 
up in the press-room. 

The counting of the papers is one of the most interesting and astounding perform 
ances in the whole business. There is one man who counts 300 a minute, and another 
who can count 400 a minute. Let the readers of this article try to count 400 a minute on 
their fingers, or try to count 400 pins or 400 peas in a minute, and they will get some 
notion what it is to count that number in that time. 

The fact is, the counting of newspapers in the SUN office has been refined into an 
art as delicate as that of piano playing, and it is performed very much in the same 
way. The counter throws a pile of damp papers on the table, strikes the heap in the 
stomach with his left hand, twitches up the edges with his right so that they stand: 
slightly apart, and then, with the fingers of his left hand runs them off in groups of five, 



almost exactly as a pianist runs off arpeggios on his instrument, and with an equal 
precision and delicacy of touch. 

The papers are usually counted off in bundles of fifty, but sometimes in larger 
quantities. The delivery of the papers to the buyers begins at half-past three. The 
number taken by the different buyers the morning we were present varied from 3 to 
27,000. The three were taken by a little boy about seven years old, the 27,000 by a 
newsdealer, and we are informed that the whole number delivered by a quarter past 5 
o clock was 126,600. The additional sales, and the papers sent to mail subscribers, 
brought the whole number up to 138,993. 

Having thus followed the NEW YOKK SUN through its entire daily and nightly 
growth, from the first article written to the point where the presses are dropping 
fourteen hundred complete copies a minute at our feet, we now take our leave, and 
take a Third Avenue car forup-town. By the time the car arrives opposite THE Sux of 
fice it is comfortably filled, and a newsboy rushes in it, crying " Here s your NEW YORK 
SUN," and sells four papers on the spot. We look at the City Hall clock : it is just 48 
minutes past 3 o clock. Thus early does the sale of THE SUN in the streets commence. 

The number of persons employed in THE SUN ofllce is two hundred and forty-nine. 
The expenses of the establishment for the week ending March 11, 1876, Avere fifteen 
thousand eight hundred ana seventeen dollars and seventeen cents ($15,817.17), and it 
was not an expensive week either, the items of which are as follows :

Dividing this amount by seven, it gives a daily average of $2,259.59, the outlay incur 
red that every buyer of THE SUN may get his copy for two cents. If a buyer of THE 
SUN were to set to work to make the copy which he gets for two cents, he couldn t be 
gin to do it for $2,259.59, without first incurring an outlay of a fortune to start with, 
and then spending a quarter of a century or so in learning how to do it. 

The expenses of THE SUN are so enormous that one naturally wonders where the 
profits come in. They come from the sale of the papers and from subscript ions and 

In addition to their enormous daily issue, THE SUN PRINTING COMPANY publish THE 
SUNDAY SUN (8 pages), at $1.20 a year, and THE WEEKLY SUN (8 pages), at $1.20 a year. 
THE WEEKLY SUN is intended more particularly for country circulation, and is filled 
only with the choicest news of most interest and value to those who do not care 
to take the New York daily papers. Great care is bestowed upon its agricultural and 
market reports ; the farmer and the country merchant are provided with such items 
of intelligence as most closely enter into the wai p and woof of their prosperity, and the 
matron and children are not forgotten, but are supplied with such genial and instruct 
ive reading matter as one loves to peruse in the family circle and enjoy with those 
who sit around the same hearthstone. 

It was supposed to be a dangerous experiment for THE SUN COMPANY to attempt 
to publish a two-cent paper at a cost surpassing that, of any four-cent paper. But 
the experiment has succeeded so well that THE SUN could now live without an adver 
tisement, and Mr. Dana s policy is always to make advertisements give way to the 
news. The people appreciate such enterprise and liberality, and THE NEW YOKK SUN 
is having greater success than ever before. It is emphatically the people s paper. It 
always stands by the workingmen and all movements for the improvement of the 
condition of the masses, when they need support ; and it also stands by them in an 
effective manner. It does them downright, substantial service. It also always takes 
the lead in exposing corruption in high places, and in bringing the people s unfaithful 
servants to the bar of public opinion. For these and many similar reasons, THE 
SUN has a strong, enduring hold on the affections of the masses and the confidence of 
the nation at large. 

And then the fa ct that it gives all the news of the Associated Press at one-half the 
price which the other papers of the Association charge for it, in addition to what its 


own exclusive enterprise furnishes, and the fact that it gives the combined results of 
the labor and brains of two hundred and forty-nine men, winnowed of all chaff, skimmed 
of all scum, and purged of all sediment the fact, in short, that it every morning gives 
overy one of its buyers $2,259.59 for two cents, places the ever growing prosperity of 
TUB NEW YORK SUN beyond all question. Its compactness is also a strong point in 
its favor. One can attack its contents with a fair hope oT being able to master 
them within a reasonable period. 

In the antediluvian days, when human beings lived away up towards the thou 
sands, such a feature would not have been of so much importance. In those long- 
drawn times a sprightly girl of sixty, or a robust youth of ninety, or even a middle- 
aged man or woman two or three hundred years old, could take tilings moderately ; 
but it is ordered otherwise in this day, and especially in this metropolis. Here, life is 
cut short at both ends, and crammed to choking in the middle ; the day s hurly burly s 
never done, and there s only time to read THE SUN. 



City was established in May, 1867, 
its publication and editorial office 
being one small room, 
and its total available capital at 
en-1 of first week was $119.00. Its 
success has been remarkable, even 
in this land of rapid growths. It is 
strictly a "local paper," which, 
while giving all the telegraphic 
news of the day, yet concentrates 
its attention chiefly on the local 
news of the thriving community in 
which it is published, and it is 
therefore a favorite visitor at every 
tea-table and the leading adver 
tising medium in Jersey City. The 
population of Jersey City, which in 
1850 was about 16,000 is now 120,000, 
and rapidly increasing. The suc 
cess of the JOURNAL is attested by 
the four-story handsome granite 
and brick building, size 25x90 feet. 
37 Montgomery street, Jersey City, 
erected for it in 1874. It is printed 
from the most remarkable Web 
printing machine yet invented. 
Its proprietors, Messrs. Pangborn, 
Dunning & Dear, who are experi 
enced newspaper men, and thor 

, or 

oughly appreciate the>ants and requirements of the community amongst whom the 
labor, have brought the JOURNAL to a high pitch of excellence, and have received, as 
a reward of conscientious work, cordial support and approbation. 



The progress, development, and present position of this paper form one of the 
most remarkable existing proofs of the success with which industry, energy, perse 
verance, and faithful and righteous, management, when applied to the Press, are 
crowned in the United States. The New York STAAT* s ZEITUNG was first published in 
1834, as a weekly paper. As such it was well received and supported, but the patronage 
accorded had so 1 ar augmented, and the demands of the Teutonic population so in 
creased in 1842, that in that year it was issued as a tri-weekly publication. The 
mutation proved the calculations of the projector to be soundly based. The sale of the 
journal grew, and its reputation advanced correspondingly, and three years later, when 
it was converted into a daily paper, it entered on its more useful career with a propi 
tious future before it. At this time, notwithstanding its reputation, the circulation of 
the paper was, however, comparatively insignificant, amounting to about only 3,000 
copies, and it was not till 1849 that the grand development leading to its present com 
manding position can be said to have taken place. Even then, for some years, its pro 
gress was not over-rapid, and Mr. Oswald Ottendorfer, the present proprietor and chief 
editor, avers that if, in 1852, when he became first connected with the STAATS ZEITUNG, 
any one should have suggested the possibility of the. paper reaching its present large 
circulation, he would have considered the idea visionary and absurd. But what was 
deemed a quarter of a century ago an impossibility is to-day an accomplished fact. 

In order to present a trustworthy opinion of its circulation, we have carefully pre 
pared from the office books the following statement of the average daily circulation of 
the N. Y. STAATS ZEITUNG for every week during the first quarter of the current year:

30 49,700 


In addition to this daily circulation, a weekly and a Sunday edition are printed, 
the circulation of the former being principally outside the city, in the Middle, "Western,, 
and Southern States. The Sunday edition is a prominent literary paper of acknowl 
edged merits, and is very widely read. 

The above statistics show that the New York STAATS ZEITUNG has the largest, cir 
culation of any daity paper printed in the German language. None in the United States 
will compare with it at all, and we are reliably informed that the principal journals 
issued in Germany in Vienna, Berlin, Cologne or Frankfort are not its peers. It is 
not necessary, however, to confine the comparison among German journals. The New 
York STAATS ZEITUNG will well bear to be contrasted with its English contemporaries 
of the city. There is that in its circulation which is remarkable, and indicates a supe 
rior class of readers. It is this : nearly all the copies of every issue are taken by 
regularly appointed carriers to the houses of subscribers. Compared with its English 
contemporaries, it is vended but little on the streets. Evidently, then, its subscription 
list is very heavy, it being very doubtful if even the Herald or <S;mcan claim a heavier. 

When it first appeared, the ZEITUNG was published in Nassau street ; next it was- 
removed to Frankfort, and afterwards to William street. In 1857 it was located in an 
establishment specially erected for its accommodation, at 17 Chatham street, opposite 
the City Hall, whence it continued to issue for many years. But the constant increase 
of business, together with the prospect that the East River Bridge will, when complete. 



have its landing on the spot where that office is situate, constrained Mr. Ottendorfer 
to seek another place of publication. The choice of site was a matter of no little im 
portance. Printing House Square is the most desirable location for the business place 
of a newspaper in the city. Therefore, to retain a holding there must be accomplished 
if possible. But no suitable building presented itself. Now it was that Mr. Ottendorfer 
aetermined to carry out his long cherished desire to erect an edifice for his paper 
which should be an ornament to the city and a monument of newspaper enterprise. 
In pursuance of his resolve, he bought several houses onTryou Row, extending from 
Chatham to Centre streets, facing Broadway, and thereon has placed a structure whose 
dignity and gracefulness impress all beholders. It was completed in 1872, and first 
occupied in the early part of 1873, and no one who examines it can fail to admit that its 
projector, Mr. Ottendorfer, has succeeded remarkably in his efforts to secure a building 
exteriorly handsome and complete in its internal arrangements. 


The edifice forms the north side of Printing House Square, on which nearly all the 
principal daily morning papers published in the City the Sun, the Iribune, the Times, 
and the Herald have their palaces. It-closes the circle formed by the City Hall, and 
the new Post Office, and gives an appropriate finish to one of the most interesting parts 
ol the City. The style of architecture employed is the modern renaissance, the first story 
being built of the dark bluish Quincy Granite and those above it of the lighter Con 
cord Granite. The effect of this combination is to relieve the building of the heavy 
appearance usually characterizing granite structures. The ornamentation, which is 
rich without being redundant, further aids the accomplishment of this end, whilst the 
portico, extending through two floors, and surmounted by bronze statues of Gutten- 
berg and Franklin (the one the inventor and the other the American representative 
oi printing) is a central feature which is never beheld without admiration. There is 
a pleasant harmony in the whole arrangement, and the remark is often made by 
gentlemen of cultivated taste and great experience that among all the majestic pub 
lic buildings erected in the city in recent years, that of the STAATS ZEITUNG bears the 
palm for combining beauty and utilit3 r . 

A model exterior was not, however, what Mr. Ottendorfer alone aimed at. His in- 


tention was that this should be an accompaniment only to a complete, thoroughly 
practical newspaper establishment. He therefore, in preparing the plans, made a 
careful study of all the improvements in newspaper economy, and introduced all such 
as commended themselves to his approbation. All other considerations were made 
subservient to this end, and how fully this was accomplished a visit to the STARTS 
ZEITUNG office will convince every observer. 

Entering the publication office, situate on the ground floor at the south-east corner, 
one is immediately struck with the loftiness of the apartment, next with the elegance 
of its fittings, and then with the evidence of business-like arrangement everywhere 
present. For height and good ventilation the STAATS ZEITUNG publication office has 
not its equal in the city. The consequence of this grand provision being that the em 
ployees are healthy and vigorous, and that the evil effects of a vitiated atmosphere are 
never experienced even when the congregation of people at the office is greatest. 
The woodwork in this department is of rich polished walnut, exquisitely carved, and set 
off with artistic bronze adornments, affording a charming contrast to a splendid speci 
men of German marble (expressly imported for Mr. Ottendorfer) which forms the slab 
at the aperture through which advertisers and others confer with the clerks. Writing 
desks en suite, and of the most approved pattern, are placed on the elegant tiled floor 
for the accommodation of visitors ; all minutiae, are carefully disposed ; and pervading 
everything is a conformity with the architectural design. 

Going up a noble stairway, the walls at the side of which are tastefully frescoed, 
the editorial ro< ms. situated on the fourth story, are reached. Whilst ascending, the 
sustained elegance of the building cannot fail to impress any visitor. The landing- 
place at each story is tiled just as the publication office is ; the same sort of adorn 
ments observable in. the hall are presented at the top of the edifice; everything be 
speaks thoroughness. 

The editors rooms are arranged methodically and comfortably, being so placed as 
to expose the busy workers to the least danger of distraction. What hundreds of their 
literary brethren sigh for in vain fresh air and plenty of it they enjoy without let 
or hindrance. The several offices connect Avith each other, so that no difficulty 
stands in the way of ready communication between the editor-in-chief and his subordi 
nates ; speaking tubes render the transmission of messages to printers or clerks easy ; 
and copy-lifts expedite the transmission of copy or correspondence to and from the 

Above the editorial department, on the top floor of the building, are the compos 
ing room and stereotyping foundry the most excellent in the city devised for the 
comfort of work-people and the facilitation of the operations conducted in them. Every 
thing is clean, orderly, systematic, and the looks of the workmen betoken that the 
sanitary arrangements have not been carried out in vain. 

The STAATS ZEITUNG forms are stereotyped every morning, and as the whole opera 
tion has to be completed in about 18 minutes, the most perfect machinery is neces 
sarily employed. The pages of type having been trundled into the foundry, an accurate 
mould of them is taken on wet papier-mache", which, when dried by heat, is placed in 
a massive iron casting box of curved shape, into which the seething metal is poured. 
A good cast having been secured, the plate is transferred to the planing machine,, 
where all irregularities are removed, and in a few minutes (the finishers having re 
moved any crudities) it is fit to be affixed to the cylinder of either of the two splendid 
six-cylinder Hoe presses on which the issue is daily worked in the basement. In the 
foundry a small engine is used to drive the machinery, the steam being supplied from 
the basement. The means of heating the building are also furnished from this sub- 
ficial department, and are very complete. 

Descending by an elegantly fitted elevator to the press-room we enter a series of 
underground apartments. The elaborate machinery at once attracts notice, but the 
next subject to arrest the attention is the excellence of the light, which, though con 
veyed artificially, is so good as to render the use of gas unnecessary during the day, 
save in retired places. The two presses employed to print the STAATS ZEITUNG will 
turn off together 20.000 an hour, the motive power being given by a 36 horse-power 
engine constructed by Wright & Co. Two of these splendid machines stand side 
by side, though but one is used at a time, the object being to obviate delay in printing 
the paper in case accident should befall cither. Near at hand are the folding 
machines, all of the most approved pattern and capable of folding nea iy the papers as 


fast, as they are printed. The mailing apparatus is likewise close at hand, this also 
being of the most approved construction. The immense boilers which furnish the 
steam for the machinery and the whole building are located in vaults under the side 
walk on the Chatham street side of the building. On a level withr these, but on the- 
opposite side of the floor, there is another vault for the storage of paper, in which 
several thousand reams are constantly kept, and an aperture for the purpose admita 
of fresh supplies being slid down a shute. In close contiguity is the distributing room, 
where the papers are handed every morning to the numerous carriers, who are in 
variably promptly on hand when an issue is coming from press. To this a half story is: 
devoted. The government of this department is singularly excellent. Each carrier is 
a man of proved reliability. Promptness and precision are points which the indefatiga 
ble carriers vie with each other to excel in, and it is next to impossible for any 
subscriber to the NEW YORK STAATS ZEITUNG to be disappointed of his paper at the 
breakfast table. Each of the corps has a district assigned him, and is protected from, 
the encroachments of rivals by provisions designed by Mr. Ottendorfer to benefit both 
the distributors and his patrons. There is not one of the other daily papers that has 
anything approaching to the completeness of this system. 

Indeed, everything possible appears to have been done to obviate delay in the 
delivery of the paper. Even the building itself was from the first designed to subserve 
this end, and for that reason chiefly it was that each and every room in the whole of 
the colossal edifice was made independently fire-proof. It seems impossible that the 
building could be destroyed by fire, or that flames could even extend beyond the 
apartment in which they might have their origin. The success of the New York, 
STAATS ZEITUNG, in a business point of view, is in no small degree due to the active 
interest which Mrs. Ottendorfer, the wife of the editor and proprietor, takes in it. 
This ladj is every morning in the publication office, and superintends and directs the 
business affairs with an ability and circumspection only to be acquired by long ex 
perience, and tiiat faculty of comprehensive tact which are commonly believed to be 
the exclusive characteristics of men ; her example demonstrates that, without claim 
ing a larger sphere of rights for the so-called weaker sex, ladies can become eminently 
useful in the daily exertions of life, if they understand how to properly exercise their 

The New York STAATS ZEITUNG as it at present stands before the public is the re 
sult of the activity, industry and intelligence of our citizens of German descent. But it 
has in no small degree itself contributed to bring that class of our citizens to the re 
spected position which they occupy. Its influence in the formation of their views, 
modeling their opinions, and its usefulness in correctly apprising them of important na 
tional and local issues, can hardly be over-estimated. If the secret of its great influence 
be sought it will alone be found in the sincerity and disinterestedness with which the 
STAATS ZEITUNG urges its arguments. These are the only qualities which could possibly 
have gained it the consideration it enjoys among such thoughtful and well-instruct 
ed people as compose the Teutonic element of our population. The tendency of the 
paper is conservative. Being inspired with a conviction of the necessity of the pre 
servation of the Union, it supported before the war the democratic party, believing it 
to be the one giving the best guarantee for the undisturbed preservation of the Union, 
and after the outbreak of the Rebellion its editor and proprietor, in words and facts, 
enthusiastically supported the Union cause. 

Of late years, however, the NEW YORK &TAATS ZEITUNG has been independent in 
politics, its principal efforts being directed against corruption and the abuses in our pub 
lic life and to endeavor to impress upon its readers the necessity of making honesty, 
faithfulness and capability the only standard by which candidates for all offices should 
be judged, regardless of party dictates or promptings. To this course it consistently 
adheres, and its increasing popularity is the best possible voucher that this stand is 
one which commends itself to public approbation. 



The projectors of the N. Y. TIMES promised in their prospectus to make " at once 
the best and the cheapest daily family newspaper in the United States." Twelve 
months later, they were able to declare that it had been " immeasurably more success 
ful, in all respects, than any new paper of a similar character ever before published in 
the United States." With justifiable exultation, and with strict adherence to truth, 
they asserted that "in circulation, in income, in influence, in everything which goes to 
make up the aggregate of a successful journal, it challenges a comparison with any 
other paper ever published." Such, in brief, is the story of " The Year One," as toid 
by Mr. Raymond, on the 17th September, 1852. 

The TIMES, then, was a success from the beginning. And it was a success because 
it met an urgent want of the community, because to enterprise in the acquisition and 
publication of news it added courage, moderation, dignity, ability and genuine consist 
ency in the discussion of public affairs. The field was already largely occupied by 
journals which looked with no frieiidiy eye upon the new comer. There was coarseness 


in the controversies of those days, and the contrast maintained was between indiffer 
ence to principle on one hand, and a dangerous tendency to extreme principles on the 
other. The orthodox Whig newspaper vied with the organ of Democratic opinion in 
obedience to the slave power ; the radical Whig became the champion of Socialism, and 
the cause of human liberty suffered from an advocacy which identified it with opinions 
that were repugnant to the American people. A need of journalism different froni ( 
either was felt, and the TIMES met it boldly and well. " We shall be conservative in 
all cases where we think conservatism essential to the public good," was one of its 
opening insurances ; "and we shall be radical in everything which may seem to us to 
require radical treatment and radical reform." This discriminating judgment was one 
of the secrets of the remarkable influence and prosperity which attended the estab 
lishment of the TIMES. Its excellence as a newspaper was a potent factor in the sum 
of its success. The care with which it was adapted to the tastes and wants of the 
family, the high standard of purity which it maintained, and the literary culture which 
shone in its columns, were marked and important sources of power. But its weight 
in political discussion the authority it exercised alike in the affairs of the State and of 
the nation was to a large extent traceable to the skill and effect with which it imposed 
restraint upon the conflicting ultraisms of the time. It infused the vitality of progress 
and the courage of conviction into the dominating conservatism ; it held in check an 
aggressive radicalism, and subjected it to the discipline of the Constitution and the 
law. Never leaving its readers in doubt as to its position on any important question 
never evading a question because it was beset with prejudice or linked with powerful 
vested interests, it adhered steadfastly to the course in the first instance marked out. 
It was vigorous, without being offensive ; courteous, without being cowardly ; and it 
appealed always to the intelligence and moral principle of its readers. 

Identified with the Free Soil Whigs as long as the Whig .party lasted, the TIMES 
largely contributed to the influences and purposes which culminated in the organization 
of the Republican party. The Pittsburg Convention and the nomination of Fremont 
were events with which the historian will associate the services of the TIMES. 
The previous four years witnessed a struggle bitter and unrelenting, in which 
the TIMES took a conspicuous and honorable part. As a newspaper, it had kept 
pace with the march of the age. Its size had expanded, and with the enlargement of 
its resources had come increased efficiency in all the general departments of a metro 
politan journal. The principles which had governed it remained unchanged ; the 
policy it did much towards moulding and crystallizing found final expression in the 
election of Lincoln. The position he assumed corresponded very closely with that 
which the TIMES had uniformly held. And when the madness of Southern faction 
forced upon the nation a struggle for its life, the TIMES accorded his administration an 
ungrudging, unqualified sxipport. It had no doubts as to its duty, and never paused 
to count the cost of the difficulties it encountered. No better record of the war exists 
than that which might be compiled from its columns. 

The views attributed to American statesmen by Victor Hugo and Louis Blanc in 
their appeal for the Philadelphia Exhibition reflect the policy upheld by the TIMES 
throughout the era of reconstruction. It exerted itself to "prevent hatred succeeding 
defeat." It contended that to permanently re-establish peace, and to win from peace 
the fruits it should yield, friendly feeling must be restored between the victors and the 
vanquished. The pursuit of these ideas for a brief period estranged from the TIMES the 
more extreme leaders of the Republican party. Experience has vindicated the motives 
of the TIMES, and moderated the rancor of those who at the moment quarreled with it. 
Its desire to promote sectional reconciliation continued unabated ;. its good will 
towards the South remained unaffected by the fate that attended the overtures which 
it encouraged. But it has insisted that magnanimity shall be tempered with justice 
that while removing disabilities and fostering paternal feeling, the essential results of 
the war shall be preserved unimpaired. At every stage of the controversy the TIMES 
has made partisanship subordinate to patriotism, and has interpreted in their broadest 
-aspects the principles which underlie the Republican organization, and are the key to 
all that is greatest and best in its career. 

The demand for party purification and administrative reform harmonizes with the 
declarations embodied in the first number of the TIMES: " What is good we desire to 
preserve and improve ; what is evil, to exterminate or reform." The paper stands 
where it has always stood when our institutions were menaced by corruption and 


intrigue. It never talked about terms with rascals or " Rings. It never concealed or 
apologized for wrong-doing in high places. It never hesitated to condemn what is evil 
because the perpetrators were members of the Republican party. It never recognized 
partisan obligations when the integrity of the government, local or national, was 
endangered. It never allowed party affiliations to fetter its judgment or to obstruct 
% the discharge of its duty to the country. These are characteristics of which the TIMES 
may fairly boast, and they indicate more emphatically than mere promises the direction 
of its course in the present condition of affairs. 

The TIMES was never blind to that rapidly growing demoralization of our municipal 
politics which culminated in the accession to power of the Tweed Ring. It followed 
with unsparing denunciation the outrages upon public honor which marked the admin 
istration of Mayor Wood, and it attacked persistently and vigorously the earlier 
evidence of a league between Judges of the Supreme Court and the spoilers of the city. 
In the great Erie warfare of 1868 the TIMES bore a prominent part. The shameful 
series of injunctions and receiverships by which corrupt judges enabled Fisk, Gould 
and Lane to take forcible possession of other people s property were followed by the 
outspoken condemnation of the TIMES. Its course at this juncture secured for it the 
bitter hostility of the confederate Tammany and Erie Rings. The indictment of its 
conductors was openly recommended to the Grand Jury by one of the Ring Judges, and 
it risked both property and personal safety in its warfare on the side of honesty and 
judicial purity. The stupendous naturalization frauds which paved the way for a period 
of corruption and wholesale plunder in the State and city were exposed and denounced 
in the TIMES. The political despotism which obtained possession of all the avenues of 
justice, of legislation and of administration, and to which even the best class of New- 
York citizens had begun to submit with a feeling of hopeless despair, found its only 
formidable adversary in the TIMES. During 1870 and 1871, the TIMES waged, almost 
single-handed, a struggle which is probably without any example in journalism. The 
odds against it seemed overwhelming, and the vast majority of onlookers undoubtedly 
believed that the paper would come out of the unequal contest with its property sacri 
ficed and its business ruined. The brilliant success which attended that onslaught 
upon the most colossal system of swindling known to modern times, tended to breed 
forgetfulness of the discouraging prospects which attended the early stages of the 
struggle, and the very substantial risks Avhich had to be faced during the period when 
success appeared doubtful. The TIMES was never more true to the principles on which 
it was founded than when it deliberately staked its very existence upon the certainty 
that even in the dark days of Ring domination, against all obstacles, the cause of right 
and justice must ultimately triumph. 

In the great movement for a higher standard of official fidelity and political purity 
which gained so decided an impetus from the overthrow of the Tammany Ring, the 
TIMES has taken a leading and effective part. It occupies to-day the position of per 
haps the most powerful Republican journal in the country, devoted to all that is noblest 
and most progressive in the policy of its party, while ready to meet with the severest 
condemnation all abuse of the party name for base ends or ignoble personal ambition. 
In American journalism there is no more consistent and honorable record than that of 
the New York TIMES. 


The first number of the TIMES was issued from .No. 113 Nassau street. Although, 
compared with subsequent accommodations, these premises were humble, they were 
in favorable contrast with other newspaper offices of that day, and were in themselves 
sufficient to prove that pluck, enterprise and capital were at the back of the new ven 
ture. On the 1st of May, 1854, it removed to ample quarters at the corner of Nassau 
and Beekman streets. But its sojourn here was to be of brief duration, for the 
business sagacity of the owners speedily saw and took advantage of an opportunity to 
place the paper in one of the best locations held by any newspaper in the United 
States. Early in the year 1857, the property of the " Old Brick Church," consisting of 
the triangular plot of ground bounded by Spruce, Nassau and Beekman streets and 
Park Row, was put upon the market, and the TIMES was fortunate enough to secure 
the northern half of it. The plot it obtained was somewhat irregular in shape, being 
65 feet front on what has now come to be known as Printing House Square by 105 
feet on Nassau street and 100 feet on Park Row. For this site $185,000 was paid, and 
on it ground was broken on the 1st of May, 1857, for the building which is still, and 


will be for indefinite years to come, occupied by the paper. This building, at the 
time it was constructed, was far superior to any then in existence, and with all the 
suggestions and improvements of the last twenty years which have been embodied 
in recent architecture, is not now surpassed by any in the world. It is constructed of 
Nova Scotia stone, is five stories high and has three fronts, as it extends over the area 
which has just been named. It is thoroughly fire-proof throughout, which was a feat 
never achieved or hardly attempted at the time it was constructed. It occupies an 
area of 13,750 square feet and contains 38 large rooms, many of which are sub-divided 
by partitions for business purposes and for the uses of the newspaper. This latter 
occupies in the publishing, editorial and composing departments altogether 23 rooms, 
some of which, however, are sub-divisions, and in addition there is the press room un 
derneath the building, which by excavation under the sidewalks has been given an area 
of 206 feet by 104. The entire building is fully supplied with gas, water, speaking tubes 
and all other appliances for the convenience of tenants, or for that of the business for 
which it was specially intended. As a great newspaper can only be done justice by 
giving particulars, it is now intended to go through this building in detail, and give a 
view not only of each department, but of the manner in which it is conducted. 


The rooms of this department occupy 65 feet front on Printing House Square by 
about the same space in depth on both Nassau street and Park Row, thus giving them, 
in common with all the remainder of the building used for the newspaper, three 
fronts. First of all is the counting room, with entrances from three streets. Oblong in 
shape, it gives ample space for the vast business which must every day be transacted. 
The counter of black walnut extends across the entire length of the room, and is 
surmounted at short intervals with high plate glass screens, to insure the privacy of 
the clerks. It is here that the general business with advertisers and subscribers is 
transacted, and there is no hour in the twenty-four when it does not present a busy 
scene, but hardly at any time does it present an appearance so animated as during 
those hours when the army of newspaper readers are in bed. and asleep. 

In the rear of the counting room is another apartment of equal size, and connected 
with it by three arched passages, which is divided by partitions into five compart 
ments. First on the Park Row side is the office of the cashier, and next to him is the 
private room of the publisher and chief proprietor, Mr. George Jones, and next beyond 
is the office of Mr. Gilbert Jones. The other small rooms are used for miscellaneous 
purposes ; one of them being devoted to the mailing bureau, which is in itself no 
small portion of this department, for it is here that the huge mails of the paper are so 
arranged and systematized that the largest possible amount of work is done down 
stairs in the shortest possible space of time. The labors of this bureau, and indeed 
of the whole force of the paper, have been greatly increased since the introduction of 
the fast mail. This mail leaving the post office in New York at 4 A. M., it is easy to see 
that a morning newspaper having any pretensions to enterprise has hard work to 
make time, but the TIMES has done it with more success than any of its contemporaries. 


Leaving the Publishing Department and going up three flights of stairs we reach 
the editorial rooms of the paper. Here are thirteen rooms, all but two of which are 
devoted to the use of the editorial staff proper, and those two to the city department. 
One of these two latter is used exclusively by the City Editor and his assistants, and 
the other and larger rooms by the reporters, who number altogether about thirty. 
It is their business to scour the city far and near for whatever items of interest 
may appear from day to day, and the fullness and excellence of the TIMES local 
news for many years past bear witness to the intelligence and faithfulness with which 
these gentlemen have discharged and still are discharging their duties. On the same 
floor are the rooms of the editorial writers : the Exchange Editor, the Telegraphic 
News Editors, the Night Editor, the Dramatic Editor, the Commercial and Financial 
Editor, the Literary Editor, the Index Editor. The habits of business in this depart 
ment are methodical, but varied according to the necessities of the numerous depart 
ments of the work of a great daily newspaper. 

It is the business of a newspaper like the TIMES to furnish its readers every morning 
with every item of interest which has transpired anywhere in the world during the 


previous day and night. To accomplish this end it not only needs and has a complete 
corps of capable editors and intelligent reporters, but a large retinue of foreign corre 
spondents who have the tact and experience necessary to observe and correctly report 
all events of public interest in the localities in which they are stationed. Sometimes 
the news comes by mail, but if need be the telegraph is freely used. In addition to all 
these the TIMES corps of domestic correspondents is among the largest and most 
efficient in the country. It has regular correspondents in Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, 
Baltimore, Washington, Albany, Richmond, Wilmington, Hartford, Raleigh, Atlanta, 
New Orleans, Jackson, Memphis, Nashville, Knoxville, Louisville, Trenton, Harrisburg, 
Pittsburg, Columbus, Cincinnati, Detroit, Cleveland, St. Louis, Omaha, Denver, Salt 
Lake City and San Francisco, and many cities of lesser note. But this is not all, for no 
sooner does anything of any great public interest happen, than the TIMES immediately 
dispatches a special correspondent from the office in New York to the scene. Added 
to all these, the TIMES has an experienced corps of political correspondents, who, 
during times of political excitement, traverse the Union and furnish information in 
regard to passing events. 


All the matter prepared by the staff of editors, correspondents and reporters, after 
undergoing requisite revision, is sent to the composing room, on the floor above, where 
it is put in type. Here it is only necessary to briefly mention facts in order to show 
the great resources and business of the establishment. There are 92 employe s, which 
includes the night foreman, 7 assistants, a day assistant foreman, 83 compositors, and 
in addition there is the general foreman, making 93. To all these must be added 8 
proof-readers, making a total of 101 employe s on this floor. There are 68 cases at 
which printers work setting type, and that they are all necessary is shown by the fact 
that nearly 400,000 ems are set every day, and sometimes when supplements are 
issued a great deal more. The only deduction to be made from this large aggregate 
is that of the advertisements which stand over from day to day, and the number is 
comparatively small. The most of this work is done after 6 P. M. So admirably is 
the composing room organized that there is rarely any delay, never any disturbance, 
in the performance of the work. The books show that the average time at which the 
last " form " goes to the stereotype room is 2.37 A. M., and from this statement any 
one can see that there can be no idleness during these eight hours in the large, airy 
and well lighted apartment which constitutes the TIMES composing room. 


After matter has been "set up," or put in type, the next process is to take 
impressions of these types on paper, and as a final result produce from stereotype 
plates the printed sheet with which the public is familiar. The first step is to cast 
stereotype plates of the several forms, for the TIMES does not and has not for many 
years printed from the types themselves. When a form is made up it is sent down in 
a box moved by steam power from the top floor to the basement, some 25 feet below 
the surface of the street, to the stereotyping room, where some layers of damp paper 
are laid upon it, and it is then driven twice through a machine having powerful rollers, 
which squeeze the paper down on the face of the type. Taken out of that, it is next 
placed with its damp paper still on it below a heavy screw-press, the sole or lower 
plate of which is a steam heated metal chamber. This hot chamber dries the paper 
rapidly, and at the same time the pressure put upon it prevents any cockling or ine 
quality. In a short space of time the frame or page of type is drawn out from below 
this press and the dried paper peeled off its surface, when it forms a perfect matrix, 
or counterpart of the type, sufficiently deep to enable a casting to be taken from it 
which shall yield a page of clear-cut lettering ready for printing from. Before the 
casting is taken, however, this paper matrix is made absolutely dry by being placed on 
another hot plate. That only occupies a very brief space of time, and when it is satis 
factorily finished the paper is trimmed carefully, and then placed face upward inside 
a semicircular moll, when its edges are fastened down by bands of iron of the thickness 
that the cast is meant to he. On these bands a counterpart of the mold is then let down 
from a small crane, and fastened so that a semicircular chamber is formed the size of 
the page of the newspaper, and about three-eighths of an inch deep all round. Into 
this a pot of molten stereotyping metal is poured by two men, the mold having first 
been turned on end so as to compel the metal to fill the cavity completely, and, after 


resting for a moment or two till the metal has set, the inner part of the mold is re 
moved by the crane, the paper matrix is peeled off, scarcely browned, and capable of 
being used again and again, and the solid cast is swung round and deposited, still 
adhering to the mold, in another cavity exactly the shape of that from which it was 
taken. Here its edges are trimmed, and the lump of metal which formed the excess 
at the top of the casting sawed off by a small revolving saw driven by steam. That 
done, the cast may be said to be complete, having merely to be dressed a little along 
the edges of the outer columns of letters, and along the top and between the headings 
of articles, and to be pared on the back to make it lie perfectly true on the cylinder in 
the machine, all of which is accomplished in a very few moments. The page of letter 
ing presents the appearance of a strong, solid half-cylinder of white metal, ribbed on 
the inside so as to facilitate the paring off of possible inequalities, and covered on 
its outer face with crisp, clean, shining letters, ready at once for the press. Only four 
men are employed in this room, and they do their work with marvelous rapidity. Only 
seventeen minutes are required in any case for making a matrix, and it has been done 
in twelve minutes. 


But the chief marvel of the mechanical department of the New York TIMES is in its 
press room, which is the most perfect in the world, containing as it does not only all 
the latest improvements in machinery found elsewhere, but many which are peculiar 
to itself. Among these is the " wetting machine," for wetting the white paper. The 
TIMES is printed on rolls of continuous paper without joint or break, each of which is 
about five miles in length and 36 inches in width, and weighs about 900 pounds net. 
Five of these rolls can pass through the machine and be "wet down " in an hour, 
being unrolled from one side and rolled up on the other with the utmost exactness. 
The paper being ready for the press, the presses themselves are next in order. The 
TIMES is printed on three Walter presses, which are capable, without being pushed, of 
producing 13,500 impressions each per hour, or 40,500 per hour altogether. The stere 
otype plates having been placed on the presses, a roll of paper containing 6,000 copies 
of the TIMES is put in its place at the end of each press in a moment by one man, by 
means of a movable section of the floor raised by a hydraulic jack. The end of the 
roll is put in place and the press put in motion. The paper goes upward to where the 
stereotype plates forming the four pages of one side of a sheet of the paper are fastened 
on a cylinder just large enough to take a sheet to go round it. Against that cylinder 
there is another, identical in size, possessing a soft surface, which presses lightly 
against the edge of the type, and between these the sheet passes, taking up an impres 
sion as it goes. It is then carried downward round another large cylinder covered 
with cloth, the " set off" on which is taken off by another cylinder in contact with it, 
and that again by a rubber, in a fashion that is both simple and effective. The web of 
paper, still running on, passes between the second type-covered roller and its counter 
part, taking the impression on its other side of the remaining four pages ; and that 
done, it runs out between two more rollers of the same circumference. The machinery 
is so adjusted that the knife catches the paper exactly between each sheet, and, the 
paper being held hard on each side, cuts it in two, all but a couple of tags near each 
end, which are left for the purpose of pulling the sheet on between two sets of running 
tapes, until it is caught by a pair of small rollers, which are driven at a greater speed 
than the rest of the machine. These immediately tear the sheets apart where they 
have been all but cut, and the tapes hurry on what is now a completely printed news 
paper up an inclined plane, at the top of which they carry it down an oscillating frame 
which moves pendulumwise so exactly that it delivers a paper precisely at each end of 
its short swing on to the face of another set of running tapes, which carry it downward 
on their outer face by the mere force of contact as they run. Between these tapes a 
frame like a huge comb swings backward and forward, catching up one delivered 
paper at every motion and flinging it down on a board. The current of air raised by 
the motion of this frame suffices to hold each succeeding sheet against the tapes along 
which it moves. Thus, two boys and the man who attends the machine are all the 
manual labor required, and the manner of delivering the papers alternately on to two 
inclined boards ready to receive them. 

Formerly these presses required several boys each to attend them, but such 
improvements have been made in them by Mr. Gilbert Jones since they have been in 
the use of the TIMES that they have become as nearly automatic as any machines 



possibly can be. One man can put the roll in place, and the same man can take the 
printed sheets from the other side. Some boys and men are needed to carry away the 
printed sheets to the mailing and delivery rooms, but so little is human help required 
by these presses that only nineteen persons in all are employed in the press room, 
while formerly more than double that number were necessary. The machinery by 

which all this is done is put in motion .y two engines of 40 horse power each; but only 
one of them is generally used at a time, as it is the system of the TIMKS to have dupli 
cates of everything in the mechanical department, so that if anyone piece should 


break down the other is on the spot ready for immediate use. It has another precau 
tion against any interruption, for it lias a complete machine shop in its press room, and 
skilled mechanics constantly in attendance to make any repairs which may be wanted. 
But with all this machinery in a space 106 feet by 104 ieet, the TIMES press room does 
not appear crowded, so compact and well placed is everything. Great as are the powers 
of the Walter presses, they only occupy a few feet of space each, and the wetting 
machine could be placed on the top of a dining table of ordinary size. Nor is there 
the griminess usually found in such places, for the TIMES lias made use of every possi 
ble appliance to avoid it. The feeding of presses with ink under the old method caused 
a vast deal both of foulness and waste, but under the TIMES system, by which the ink 
is pumped from a reservoir into each press as it is needed, not a drop is spilled. All 
these facts are mentioned only to show that in its mechanical department, as in all 
others, the paper is second to none. It is universally admitted to be the most hand 
some in appearance of any paper printed, and it could not have reached nor have 
maintained this distinction without the most perfect mechanism. 

In addition to the daily issue of the TIMES, there is the semi-weekly edition, issued 
on Tuesdays and Fridays, and the weekly edition on Wednesday of each week, all of 
which have large circulations. Complete in its mechanical appliances, strong in its 
resources, solid in its basis, independent and honest in its editorial management, 
sincere and decisive in its political convictions, but not devoted to the interests of any 
person or clique, presenting every morning all the news of the world for the previous 
day in the most perfect shape, the TIMES is the embodiment of the highest standards 
yet attained by American journalism.

The New York EVENING POST is one of the oldest of the great American newspapers, 
and is the best evening Journal published in New York. It was established in 1801, 
and for more than fifty years has been under the wise editorial management of William 
Cullen Bryant, the honored poet and author. Under his guidance the EVENING POST 
has gained a reputation and an amount of influence equaled by very few American 
journals. Believing thoroughly in the principles of Republican government, it addresses 
and represents peculiarly the cultured class of our citizens, and its tone is very high. 
Even its advertising columns are jealously guarded against questionable or objection 
able advertisements. This fastidiousness has made it a great family newspaper, and 
it, is generally acknowledged to be the door by which access is to be gained to New 
York homes. 

An introduction by the EVENING POST ensures an hospitable reception to any topic, 
charity or business. As a contemporary published in a neighboring city says : i( The 
EVENING POST is most decidedly the one daily paper in New York that can fully claim, 
like the Pall Mall Gazette, to be conducted by gentlemen and for gentlemen." 

Its Semi- Weekly and Weekly editions bear the same general character, both in the 
quality of their matter and their audience, although, of course, special attention is 
given to the Agricultural and other departments which are of peculiar interest to the 
country readers. 

The fact that there are a larger number of really great newspapers published in 
the morning than in the evening gives the EVENING POST even more prominence than 
it could otherwise have attained. 

Having gained its position, however, the publishers have wisely spared no expense 
to keep and advance it. The special dispatches, it is safe to assert, are more complete 
and are made a much greater feature in this than in any other afternoon journal pub 
lished in New York, and as the most important events happen, as a rule, in the day 
time, and as the difference in time gives an evening journal the daily news of Europe, 
a reader of the EVENING POST, for instance, has spread before him in a concise form., 
the daily events of the whole world. 

He reads this record of the day at his home when he has both the time and the 
inclination for its careful perusal and consideration. Thus, an evening journal has the 
best possible opportunity for real influence. 

The same thing is true, further, in respect to all announcements made in an evening 
newspaper ; for. being read at home and left at home, it is naturally the medium con 
sulted by the family in regard to most of the domestic needs and the family plans. 
The EVENING POST is very decided in its opinions, and as it has said of itself, it " is often 
called upon by a sense of duty to oppose itself to the general feeling of those from 
whom a commercial paper always must receive its support ; it never hesitates to do 
so. It sometimes finds a pOAverfm member of that community occupied Avith projects 
which it deems mischievous ; it puts itself in his way and frustrates his designs if pos 
sible. In this way it makes bitter enemies, who would break it down if they could ; it 
makes also warm friends by whom it is cordially supported. Its proprietors are sat 
isfied with its success and its expectations." It may interest foreigners to know 
that the EVENING POST is the American Champion of Free Trade and the rights of For 
eign Authors. 

Its stately building (a picture of which is reproduced on the opposite page) is thor 
oughly appointed for the Newspaper business, and is on the corner of the two great com 
mercial thoroughfares of New York, Broadway and Fulton street. 

On Broadway the building has a front of sixty-two feet and ten inches, and extends 
one hundred and three feet, six inches on Fulton street. Its height abave the side- 




walk is one hundred and twenty-five feet, though the cupola is fifteen feet higher. It 
is divided into nine stories, but the monotony of row upon row of windows is broken 
by a series of pilasters, arches, and ornamental pillars on both Broadway and Fulton 
street. The entire outside walls are of the best quality Philadelphia pressed front 
bricks and the trimmings of Dorchester stone. 



THE NEW YORK EXPRESS was established as a daily 
morning- journal in 1836, when the city commenced at 
tlie battery and ended at Niblo s Garden, on the 
C( rner of Prince street and Broadway. The up-town 
omnibuses then went no further, and Union Square 
was in the fields, and the head-quarters of the Man 
hattan Works, which supplied the city through 
wooden pipes with water, was in Chambers street. 
Of the morning papers then in existence only two 
survive, and of the evening only two, except the Ex- 
PKESS. All other daily journals have since disap 
peared, to the number of over one hundred. 

The EXPRESS was started by the late JAMES BROOKS, 
with ROBERT E. HUDSON as Commercial Editor, and 
ERASTUS BROOKS as part owner and its Washington 
Editor, a post which he occupied during the sessions 
of Congress for nearly twenty consecutive years. 
Mr. James Brooks had occupied the same field years 
before, as editor of the Portland Advertiser, writing 
letters from thence, and both earlier and later from 
the South and Europe. He was among the earliest 
of the Washington correspondents, though not before 
Messrs. Coleman, Kingman and Mathew L. Davis, and 
perhaps some others. Mr. Brooks, senior, entered 
upon his editorial career in this city in June, 1836. 
Some years later the old JVY j ?o YorJc Advertiser (Theo. 
Dwight and Wm. B. Townsend, proprietors), was 
merged in the NEW YORK EXPRESS, and the two 
papers were for over fifty years the corporation 
journal of the city, with pay at not over $250 a year 
for the honor of doing the work. 

The EXPRESS was the first daily double sheet printed 
in the city, and as an experiment it failed to attract 
public interest, for the reason that the advertise 
ments could not be found, and the MORNING EXPRESS. 
then nearly as large as the London Times, was pro 
nounced too cumbersome. In most parts of the 
country the old folio form of the present EXPRESS is 
still the favorite with the public. In March, 1S76, the 
NEW YORK EXPRESS was formed into a joint stock 
company, Erastus Brooks and James Wilton Brooks, 
only son of James Brooks, consenting to part with 
one-fifth of their interest, and to expend the new 
capital in the improvement of their paper. Since 
then its editorial and reportorial corps have been 
greatly increased, with large additions to its ex 
penses and a corresponding increase in its business 

Since 1836, the EXPRESS has occupied the old Tontine Buildings, at the corner of 
Wall and Water streets, the offices at the present, 112 and 114 Broadway, the corner of 
Wall and Nassau streets, opposite the Custom House, the narrow front and wider rear 


on Tryon Row, where the EVENING EXPRESS was started, 13 and In Park Row, where it 
was burned out in December, 1872, and for three years in its present premises, No. 23 
Park Row, bought and built by .1. & E. Brooks, and entirely adapted to its present 
large business, with its press-room far down in terra firma, and its editorial and com 
posing rooms among the best ventilated and lightest rooms in the city. The premises 
extend from Park Row, opposite the Post Office, to Theatre Alley, with ample light and 
room to assure the health and comfort of all occupants in its seven stories. 


Perhaps there is no plot of ground in the city that has a more memorable history 
than that on which the EXPRESS Building stands. Its early associations, like the prin 
ciples disseminated from the structure, embraced the whole country. One hundred 
years ago it intersected the old "Commons" that stretched from St. Paul s to a 
cemetery that skirted the northwest line of Chambers Street. Beyond this point were 
the Collect or Great Pond, on which the Tombs was built; the "Tea Water Purnp," in 
Chatham Street; "Gallows Hill," whose scaffold drank the blood of a member ol 
Washington s Body Guard, who had sold his plans to the enemy, and the barracks and 
jails that stretched from the eastern section of the City Hall Park to Tryon Row and Cen 
tre Street. Farm houses, miles apart; wheat fields and orchards, relieved by small 
villages, such as Richmond Hill, in the neighborhood of Varick and Charlton Streets, 
and Greenwich (now Christopher Street) completed the scene. The " Commons." as 
all the ancient records inform us, was the scene of many an encounter between the 
" Liberty Boys " and the British loyalists, in 1775. The former fought for the principles 
of constitutional liberty, and for a government of and by the people; and the EXPRESS, 
on the self-same ground, is fighting the self-same battles over again, though happil? 
with no effusion of blood. 

Other associations connected with the site of the new EXPRESS Building also make 
it an object of public interest. Here was the old Park Theatre, with the row of ancient 
and uneven buildings which formed the block forty years ago, and it must necessarily 
share in all the histrionic glories of that ancient Thespian temple. Forrest, Placide, 
Charles Kean, Ellen Tree, Barrett (Gentleman George), Mme. Vestris, Charlotte Cush- 
man, Vache, Fisher, Macready, Cooke, Blake, Peter Richings, and a host of other star.* 
performed within its walls, "drawing crowded houses nightly." Opera, comedy, 
tragedy, burlesque, extravaganza, farce succeeded each other. In those days, ay 
now, play-going gallants espoused the cause of each attractive actress whom unsym 
pathetic critics would place among less favored sisters in a stock company. On one 
occasion this theatre was the scene of a terrible row between the defenders and assail 
ants of Mrs. John Wood, who was then playing a brief engagement within its walls. 
The gallant James Watson Webb attacked the lady s personations of several characters 
in his paper, the old Courier ana Enquirer, and when she appeared on the stage the 
same evening, she was received by a storm of alternate applause and hisses, which 
was succeeded by a general melee, in which the house was practically converted into 
a prize-ring. The police finally separated the combatants. 

On either side of the Park Theatre stood two memorable saloons. The first was 
kept by Jas. Sweeny, the father of Peter B. Sweeny, now in Paris, and James M. 
Sweeny, his brother, who recently died there. Both Peter B. and James M. were born 
in that house. The second saloon was owned by one Conroy, a brother-in-law of a 
" host" well known and respected in those days, named Malachi Fallen, who subse 
quently founded a cosy restaurant and social meeting-house in Elm street, which was 
known by the familiar name of "The Ivy Green." 

We might multiply these by -gone scenes and incidents which give the site of the 
EXPRESS and those immediately connected with it a bright and varied page in our local 
history. In the cause of American liberty the place where the United States played 
an active part against the Georges of England, and for George Washington, of the 
American Colonies, the same good work is ours now, and with as brilliant prospects 
of success before the country, we trust, as when the old liberty boys met to defend 
the right at the mouth of the cannon. The weapon now used is the pen. which ought, 
to be mightier than the sword, but which now is too often, we fear, used to pull down 
rather than build up the Republic. 





The BROOKLYN EAGLE is in an especial sense the journalistic representative 
of the city in which it is published, and it is published in the third city in the 
Union, in point of population, and the second in extent of area. The growth of 
Brooklyn has been marvelous among even American cities. The BROOKLYN DAILY 
EAGLE was founded in 1812 by Isaac Van Anden, who took an active interest in its 
business management up to the period of his death in 1875. Brooklyn, at the time 
the EAGLE was started, had been incorporated as a city but about seven years, and 
it then contained a population of only 30,000. Its population is now over 500,000. 
The EAGLE has steadily grown with the city, until it is now the most widely cir 
culated evening journal published in this countiy. Its early contemporaries 
and rivals have all passed away, and, while there are three other daily papers 
published in Brooklyn at the present time, the newspaper business of the city 
may be said to be concentrated in the office of the EAGLE. Designed mainly to 
meet the wants of a concentrated population of half a million, it is exceptional 
among newspapers in the compactness and universality of its circulation 
within the sphere of its direct influence, so that it has long ago come to be ac 
cepted as a truism in Brooklyh that, " Everybody who can read at all, reads the 
EAGLE." As a medium of advertising, in order to reach the people of Brooklyn, 
it has no rival. The extent of its advertising patronage is exceeded by only one 
morning newspaper in New York, and by no evening paper in the world. Its 
cii culation is believed to be lai ger than that of all the evening journals, of its 
class, published in New York, and is exceeded but by two or three of the Me 
tropolitan morning newspapers, which, while they may have sharper competi 
tion, have a more extensive constituency. The circulation of the EAGLE has 
more than kept pace with the growth of Brooklyn. It is also sold at the princi 
pal centres of resort in New York ; has a considerable and growing mail circu 
lation, and is recognized throughout the country as one of its most influential 
and prosperous journals. In proportion to its circulation, the EAGLE is believed 
to be the cheapest advertising medium in either city. The income of the paper 
has grown to be very large, but in presenting not only the news of the world, 
but the most minute reflex of the daily life of Brooklyn, its expenditure has 
come to be so vast that rivalry with it has been found to be impossible. 


The EAGLE is issued from the extensive printing establishment known as 
Nos. 34, 36 and 38 Fulton street. These buildings extend to the adjoining street, 
and have been fitted up with the especial view of accommodating its business, 
and that of the very extensive Book and Job Printing office embraced in the 
establishment. These buildings are four stories in height, and are occupied as 
follows : 

On the basement floor are the newspaper folding rooms, and the rooms for 
the clerks engaged in selling tickets, which are in turn passed to the folders, 
who count off the EAGLE with a rapidity perfectly incomprehensible to those 
who have not seen the quickness of the eye tested as an enumerator. At certain 
hours of the day the front room is given over to bustle and excitement and to 
the newsdealers and " newsboys " who impatiently await their turn to get their 
papers each one eager to be flrst on the street with a newspaper which every 
body in Brooklyn reads. 

On the first floor are the counting rooms, telegraph office, newspaper-file 
room, and private rooms of the business heads of the concern. In the counting 
rooms there is a " Gold and Stock Indicate!-," which records during business 
hours of the day all the operations of Wall street, ship arrivals and departures, 
and the principal news items of the day. The counting room is one of the 
most frequented centres of Brooklyn, and is usually crowded with people hav 
ing business with the office. Nearly level with the first floor is a building es 
pecially constructed for the accommodation of the two eight-cylinder Hoe Light 
ning Presses, which can be seen from the counting rooms, from morning until 
late into the afternoon, and often into the night, throwing off the various edi 
tions of the EAGLE, at the rate of thirty-six thousand per hour. The EAGLE is 
now stereotyped, and hence its " forms" can be printed at the same time on 


both presses. The EAGLE is the only evening newspaper in the country printed 
on the Hoe Lightning Presses, which is under the necessity of duplicating its 
forms by stereotyping. The rear building, fronting on Doughty street, is occu 
pied by the numerous presses required by the Job Office Department. 

The second floor is devoted exclusively to the business of the Book and Job 
offices. Several weekly newspapers are printed here, and every description 
of work is turned out in large quantities. 

The third floor Very nearly one-half of this floor is devoted to the use of 
the editorial and reportorial staff employed upon the paper. Seven rooms, run 
ning along the Fulton street side of the building, are occupied by the editors, 
while two spacious apartments are devoted to the use of the very large staff of 
repoi ters employed on the paper. Adjoining are rooms reserved for the proof 
realers, etc. The rear half of this floor is occupied by the compositors, who 
" set up " the paper. This room is believed to be one of the best arranged and 
best ventilated composing rooms in the country. It is lighted from the roof 
and from the windows which look out from three sides of it. 

On the fourth floor are the rooms occupied by the stereotypers. It also con 
tains the bookbindery, the ruling, the folding, and the drying rooms, and 
other apartments needed in the conduct of the job office. 


The BROOKLYN EAGLE has long ago repudiated such distinction as is to be 
secured by mere party organship. In its reportorial columns equal favor is 
shown to all, the main object of the paper being to daguerreotype life in Brook 
lyn, with perfect impartiality and accuracy. The EAGLE has consistently advo 
cated and upheld those principles of government with which the name of 
Thomas Jefferson will be associated as long as our Federal system of Republi 
can government continues to exist. Entirely independent of party, it is 
enabled to maintain a tone of courtesy, candor and independence in its editor 
ial columns, which commends it alike to the honest masses of both parties. 


The BROOKLYN EAGLE has been published for several years past by an in 
corporated association Its stock, however, is concentrated in very few hands. 
Outside of the family of its founder, Mr. Van Anden, there are but three stock 
holders one of them the gentleman who has filled for many years the position 
of editor-in-chief of the paper. William C. Kingsley and Abner C. Keeney, very 
well known citizens of Brooklyn, are the only other stockholders. The busi 
ness interest of the EAGLE is represented by Mr. William Hester, nephew of its 
founder, Mr. Van Anden. 


In the formation of political and public sentiment, the EAGLE takes a lead 
ing place in the ranks of American newspapers. Its editorial conduct is under 
the full control of Mr. Thomas Kinsella, who has grown up with the paper, hav 
ing served it in nearly every capacity compositor, contributor, reporter, as 
sistant editor, and editor-in-chief. Mr. Kinsella takes an active part in the pub 
lic affairs of his city and State. He has held various offices of trust under the 
local government of Brooklyn. In 1864 he was a member of the Democratic 
National convention; in 1866 he was a delegate to the Union Convention, held in 
Philadelphia, to sustain President Johnson s administration; in 1872, as a zeal 
ous advocate of the election of the then head of his profession Horace Greeley 
to the Presidency of the United States, he presided over the Rochester Demo 
cratic State convention, and was one of the delegates to the National Demo 
cratic convention, which was held at Baltimore, and through whose action 
Greeley secured the support of the Democratic party. Mr. Kinsella was a mem 
ber of the House of Representatives during the Forty-second Congress. 


The marvelous success of the BROOKLYN EAGLE is due in part to the fact 
that it has identified itself in all things with Brooklyn and her people, but 
mainly to this : It is run as a newspaper, and finds its own interest in uphold 
ing that of the great public, whose favor alone insures journalistic success. 




It was in the year 1845 that the first number of that popular illustrated news 
paper, THE SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN, was issued to the public, its circulation for 
thu first few months averaging barely 300 copies per week; and it was then the 

only scientific and mechanical journal in. the United States. Now, in the cen 
tennial year, 1876, 50,000 copies hardly suffice the veekly demand, this number 
being largely in excess of the combined circulation of all the other papers of its 
class published on this continent. 

In the 31 years thus passed, the history of this well known weekly paper is 
contemporaneous with and largely illustrates the astonishing progress of this 
country in the mechanical arts and in industrial science; and it is with feelings 
of satisfaction that the proprietors refer to the public sentiment which univer 
sally prevails : that THE SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN has done more to foster improve 
ments and promote the progress of invention and the mechanical arts in this 
country during the last quarter of a century than all other publications; and 
although the publishers continue to regard the promulgation of practical informa 
tion, on the industrial arts and mechanical progress generally, as the legitimate 
aim of the paper, they are glad to know that their paper is a welcome guest 
in the home and at the fireside, as well as in the library, workshop, and labor 
atory. To fulfil all these requirements, a journal must record all the discov 
eries in the arts at home and abroad, report all important patents as fast as they 
are issued, and leave nothing that pertains to the prosperity of the manufac 
turer or the comfort of the home unnoticed. With pride the publishers refer 
the reading public to the past volumes of their journal, to be found in the most 
important libraries at home and abroad, where they are constantly referred to 
for data in all matters pertaining to discoveries and inventions. 

The large subscription list and sale of the SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN enables its 
proprietors to give out weekly the handsomest and most useful illustrated peri 
odical extant. It is one of the most popular weekly journals in the world, and 


the cheapest periodical devoted to science, art, mechanics, and all their branches 
now published in either hemisphere. For engravings of mechanical subjects, 
the SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN has always stood at the head of all publications of its 
kind in the world, and the same artist who won a name for himself for the good 
quality of his engravings on this paper a quarter of a century ago, still exe- 
cutes the superb cuts which now c;i ace its pages; and for the superiority of such 
work, none has ever excelled Iiim. The cost lor a good engraving and its pub 
lication in the editorial column is but trifling compared with the benefit derived, 
if one wishes to negotiate sales of territorial rights, or the manufactured article. 
The advantage of placing a picture and description of a new invention before 
the eyes of fifty thousand persons, most of which are of the class interested in 
new discoveries and new devices, cannot fail of attracting the attention of all 
of this vast number, and of being of special interest to some. The receipt of a 
model, photograph, good drawing, or a copy of the Letters Patent, is sufficient 
to estimate the cost for engraving, and we would recommend parties to this 
course in advance of giving the order for the execution of the work. 

There is not a country or a large city on the face of the globe where the 
paper does not circulate. We have the best authority for stating that some of 
the largest orders for machinery and patented articles from abroad have come 
to our manufacturers through the medium of the SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN, the par 
ties ordering having seen the article illustrated or advertised in these columns 
Small models, as well as photographs and drawings, may be sent by mail. 

Messrs. Munn & Co., finding that their endeavors were so widely appreciated 
by the public, commenced on January 1, 1876, the publication of an additional 
paper, entitled the SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN SUPPLEMENT. The success of the new 
enterprise was ensured as soon as the first number was issued ; and within three 
months of its first appearance, it attained a circulation of 15,000 copies weekly, 
making it, with the single exception of the SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN, the most widely 
spread and valuable advertising medium in the country. It is, like the SCIEN 
TIFIC AMERICAN, illustrated with a constant succession of excellent engravings 
of new engineering enterprises and mechanical subjects. 

In 1846 Messrs. Munn & Co. established, in connection with the publication 
of the SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN, the buoiness of soliciting patents, and soon after 
wards established branch offices at Washington, London, Paris, Brussels, and 
Vienna. In the past thirty years this concern has grown till it has become the 
largest patent-soliciting establishment in the world, having been honored with 
the confidence of more than 60,000 clients, and prosecuted to a successful issue 
no less than 40,000 applications for letters patent in this and other countries. 
This vast number is not much less than one fourth of the whole patent business 
of the United States, and has been acquired by lengthened experience and 
unrivaled facilities for transacting all business connected with patents and the 
Patent Office. The principal or home office in which this large amount of busi 
ness is conducted is represented in the engraving at the commencement of this 
article; and the large number of experts constantly employed have been 
selected mostly from the ranks of the Patent Office at Washington, and they 
comprise men of unusual ability for the execution of the duties of their 
peculiar profession. Inventors who visit this great establishment, or communi 
cate their inventions by writing, will find that the best professional advice and 
instructions are freely given, and that all such communications are kept strictly 
confidential. Daily access to the records of the Patent Office, through the branch 
office of the SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN in Washington, renders it possible for Munn & 
Co. to conduct their immense business of soliciting patents in the United States 
and all foreign countries in the quickest, cheapest, arid most satisfactory manner, 
The principal office of the SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN and the patent department is 
located at 37 Park Row, New York City. 



It was in the latter part of the year 1854 that ROBEHT BONNER set him 
self the task of making the NEW YORK LEDGER the best and the best-known 
family paper in America. Mr. BONNER was then thirty years old, and had 
already had several years experience as a publisher and an editor. He did not 
enter upon his new undertaking without much and well-considered delibera 
tion. He possessed unusual advantages for the enterprise. He \ras not only 
an experienced publisher and editor, but he was also a practical printer, and a 
thorough master of his business iu every department and phase of it. 


During the year 1833 Mr. BON.VER got his plans well in hand, and though 
limited in means, he accomplished most gratifying results. The sale of tho 
LEDGEU ran rapidly up to a high figure, and the profits soon became largo. But 


Mr. BOXNER was not content with a measure of success that might have satisfied 
an ordinary ambition. He turned his profits into his business, and pushed the 
LEDGER with unexampled enterprise and liberality. He, and his paper, and 
his energy, and his novel modes of procedure became matters of general public 

The circulation of the LEDGER continued to increase, and before the close o f 
the year 1836 it far exceeded two hundred thousand copies a week. From that 
time it has constantly grown in prosperity, in reputation, and in power, until, 
in its commanding influence, in the extent and character of its circulation, and 
in the vastness of the fortune which it has yielded to its proprietor, the NEW 
YORK LEDGER has become the most successful literary and family paper of 
which we have any knowledge. Its circulation at times has reached over three 
hundred antl fifty thousand copies. 

In truth, the success of the LEDGER is looked upon as one of those marvels 
of the times which nobody expects to comprehend. The general impression is 
that the LEDGER has been pushed with almost superhuman energy, and con 
ducted with almost superhuman sagacity; but of course the public at lai-ge can 
not be expected to understand or even to remember just what this energy and 
sagacity have done, or how they have done it. It is doubtful even if the most 
assiduous readers of the LEDGER for the last twenty years could name a tenth 
of the illustrious statesmen, editors, educationists, divines, scholars, essayists 
and poets who have in that time written for it. 

We must confess that until we recently examined the files of the LEDGER we 
ourselves had no idea what an astounding list of contributors it has had. We 
cannot give the names of all these contributors it would be too much like 
publishing a dictionary of authors; but must content ourselves with mention 
ing some of the more eminent ones. 

Prominent among the names of statesmen who have written for the LEDGER 
are those of Edward Everett, James Buchanan, President of the United States; 
Henry Wilson, Vice-President of the United States; George Bancroft, and Gen 
eral N. P. Banks. Also, United States Senators Anthony and Sprague of Rhode 
Island, Edmunds of Vermont, Ferry of Connecticut, Stockton of New Jersey, 
Sherman of Ohio, Norton of Indiana, and Cameron of Pennsylvania. 

Many of the greatest journalists we have ever had in America have been 
contributors to the LEDGER; among others, James Gordon Bennett (senior), 
Horace Greeley, Henry J. Raymond, George Ripley, Charles A. Dana, and 
George D. Prentice and William Cullen Bryant, also eminent as poets as well as 
distinguished as editors. In addition to these, in the list of poets, we find the 
names of N. P.Willis, George P. Morris, Mrs. Sigourney, Phebe Cary, Alice Cary, 
Emma Alice Brown, Ethel Lynn, Nathan D. Urner, John G. Saxe, Henry W. 
Longfellow and Alfred Tennyson. 

On the list of prose contributors to the LEDGER we find the names of Charles 
Dickens, Fred. S. Cozzens, Paul Morphy, James Parton, Fanny Fern, Mrs. Horace 
Greeley, Mrs.Southworth, Mrs.Harriet Lewis, Miss Eliza A.Dupuy, Mary Kyle Dal 
las, Sylvanus Cobb, Jr., Leon Lewis, Prof. William Henry Peck. Judge Clark, Miss 
L. M. Alcott, Mrs. Elizabeth Blackwell, Lydia Maria Child, Mrs. Horace Mann, 
Mrs. N. P. Willis, Madame Le Vert, Mrs. General Banks, Mrs. President Barnard, 
Mrs. Howard Crosby, Mrs. Chancellor Ferris and Mrs. Jessie Benton Fremont. 

The presidents of many of the leading colleges in America have also been 
contributors to the columns of the LEDGER. Among these eminent scholars were 
Rev. Thomas Hill, D.D..LL. D., President of Harvard College; Rev. Theodore 
D. Woolsey,D.D., President of Yale College; Rev. John Maclean, D.D., President 
of the College of New Jersey; Rev. D. R. Goodwin, D.D., President of the Univer 
sity of Pennsylvania ; Rev. Asa D. Smith, D.D., President of Dartmouth College ; 
Rev. W. A. Stearns, D.D., President of Amherst College; Rev. Mark Hopkins, 
D.D., LL.D., President of Williams College ; Rev. Laurens P. Hickok, D.D., LL.D., 
President of Union College; Rev. E. O. Haven, D.D., LL. D., President of the 
University of Michigan; Rev. Joseph Cummings, D.D., LL. D,, President of the 
Wesleyan University; Rev. S. G. Brown, D.D., President of Hamilton College, 
and Rev. M. B. Anderson, LL. D., President of the University of Rochester. 

In addition to these eminent ocholars and divines, we also find the following 


names on the list of writers for the LEDGER : Rev. Stephen H. Tyng, D.D., Rev- 
Francis Vinton, D.D., Rev. Edward Everett Hale, Rev. J. Hyatt Smith, Rev 
Tryon Edwards, D D., Rev. John McClintock, D.D., Rev. Thomas Armitage, 
D.D., Rev. Sarnu%l Osgood, D.D., Rev. Thomas H. Skinner, D.D , Rev. Leonard 
Bacon, D.D., Rev. Howard Crosby, D.D., Bishop Simpson of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, Rev. J. Williams, D.D., LL. D., Bishop of Connecticut, Rev. 
John Hall, D.D., of New York, and Rev. Thomas M. Clark, D.D., LL. D., Bishop 
of Rhode Island. 

What other paper can show such a list of illustrious contributors ? History, 
biography, statesmanship, theology, poetry, art, science, philosophy, literature, 
and whatever relates to the educational interests and the social and domestic 
well-being of the people, have their representatives and advocates here. If we 
properly grasp this great fact it will enable us to get some notion of the means 
by which the LEDGER has gained the commanding position which it now holds. 
It always has the largest number of great and distinguished contributors writ 
ing for it. It appeals to and gratifies every wholesome literary and educational 
taste. It is always a live paper, and perpetually keeps pace with the genius and 
spirit of American progress. It contains the purest, sweetest and most delight 
ful stories, striking narratives and instructive biographical and historical 
sketches; also, a popular and carefully-prepared collection of scientific facts, 
forming a weekly register of the latest scientific discoveries. 

All kinds of questions which interest the great family of man are also an. 
swered in the columns of the LEDGEK; and a great amount of information on 
matters of law, business, marriage, love, housekeeping, the relations of friends, 
personal differences, etiquette, plans of life, &c., is thus communicated. 

As the LEDGER is largely the oracle of the young people of the country, one 
of its great guiding principles is to inculcate the sentiments of self-respect and 
self-reliance in its readers, and thus to strengthen and render more manly the 
characters which are just assuming form, to endure through all their days. 
Thus, while the LEDGER is read with the warmest and most intense interest by 
hundreds of thousands of persons, it is doing much to inculcate sound principles 
wherever it goes, and to make better men and women ot the rising generation 
This is one reason why the LEDGER is such a general favorite, and why the educa 
tionists of the country like to write for it. A College President, or a Doctor of 
Divinity, who addresses the public through the columns of the LEDGER reaches 
every city, town, village and hamlet in the United States, and speaks to hundreds 
of thousands of intelligent people. 

One of the most striking facts in connection with the LEDGER is the continu. 
ous vitality of Mr. BOXNER S personal energy and business enterprise. He is as 
wide awake now as he was twenty years ago. He is always on the alert for any 
new feature that he thinks will render his paper more useful and attractive, and 
he never allows the cost to stand in the way of his securing a good thing for the 

The grand result of all this enterprise and sagacity of this vast array of 
eminent and popular contributors of these deep, pure streams of literature 
which have been flowing through the columns of the LEDGER for so many years 
is, that the popularity of the NEW YORK LEDGER is now unbounded ; its circu 
lat ion covers the whole land ; the young, the middle-aged, and the old, the rich 
and the poor, the learned and the unlearned alike find entertainment and in 
struction in its pages ; it enlivens and brightens thousands upon thousands of 
homes; it is firmly fixed in the confidence and the affection of the American 
people, and its influence which is always on the side of virtue, morality and 
religion is immeasurable. 




For several years Mr. James E. Scripps, then manager of the Detroit Tribune, 
had entertained a growing conviction that a cheap, popular newspaper, 
somewhat similar to the Boston Herald, the New York Sun, and the Philadelphia 
Public Ledger, might be made as great a success in the West as in the Eastern 
cities, although all attempts of the kind had previously proven failures. From 
a long practical acquaintance with journalism, and an attentive study of it as 
a science, he believed that the rocks and shoals upon which so many news 
papers had been wrecked might be avoided, and publishing be made as safe 
and certain as any other business enterprise. It was ia pursuance of this theory 
that, on August 23, 1873, THE EVENING NEWS was launched in Detroit, the chief 
city of Michigan. The new venture was thoroughly advertised beforehand, an 
able corps of assistants was secured, embracing the very best men that could 
be had, and a four cylinder Hoe press was purchased, with a capacity of 10,000 
copies per hour. Within five months THE EVENING NEWS had reached a paying 
basis, and was printing regularly over 5,000 copies each afternoon. By the 
close of its first year its circulation exceeded 10,000 copies; its second year 
closed with a regular average issue of 17,025 copies, and by May 1, 1876, it had 
risen to over 18,000 copies each day. The success of THE EVENING NEWS is 
owing to several causes. 

1st. The paper is cheap and readily within the reach of the masses, being 
sold to the public at two cents per copy, or at fifty cents per month. 

2d. It is of such a size (22x32 inches) that it is kept constantly crowded, either 
with advertising at good, fair prices, or with choice reading matter nothing 
dull, prosy or carelessly prepared being permitted in its columns. 

3d. It has a large staff of capable writers, and aims to maintain as high a 
standard of excellence in the character of work done upon it as any newspaper 
in the country. 

4th. It is independent in all things, and neither fears a foe nor shields a 

5th. It is emphatically a newspaper, and is looked to by the people of Michigan 
both for the earliest tidings of current events and the most trt --itwor(hy accounts 
of them. 

Between 7.000 and 8,000 copies are circulated throughout the State of Michigan, 
while the remainder are taken in and around the city of Detroit, which, with 
its suburbs, exceeds 150,000 inhabitants. 

What the Herald is to Massachusetts, the Sun to New York, and the Public 
Ledger to Pennsylvania, THE EVENING NEWS is to the prosperous and growing 
State of Michigan, and the border counties of Ohio, Indiana and Ontario. 

The actual number of papers printed and sold in the first year of THE 
EVENING NEWS history was 2,063,950. In the second year the number rose to 
4,097,463, and for the first eight months of the third year to 3,489, 190, indicating a 
total for the full year (which does not close till August 23d) of 5,2J3.785. 

THE EVENING NEWS is one of the very few newspapers in the United States 
which can afford to publish from week to week its exact circulation. This it 
has conscientiously done from tho first. 



In point of rapid growth and prosperity, the ranking paper of the Southern 
States is the Savannah (Ga.) MORNING NEWS, of which Mr. J. II. E.still is pro 
prietor, lie has just moved into a new building ot his own, which, in its finish 
and appointments, has no equal in any of the more Southern States, and is the 
first building of the kind south of Maryland and Kentucky. 

Its erection was commenced on the 6th of July, 1875, and its occupation took 
place on the 15th of January, 1876, the 26th anniversary of the paper. It presents 
an attractive and imposing exterior, is four stories on a basement, with neat 
front of Georgia granite, and from the street to the top of the cupola is eighty- 
eight feet high. The arrangements of the building are admirable, and afford 
ample facilities for the various departments of the newspaper publication office, 
the extensive job to the cily, and a 

printing estab- fm IB, practical evi- 

lishment, and the 
blank book manu- 
factory and bind 
ery. Communica 
tion is had with 
the various floors 
by means of 
speaking tubes, 
dumb waiters and 
one of Bates pat 
ent elevators ; and 
the entire build 
ing is supplied 
with all the mod 
ern conveniences 
and comforts, 
with thorough 
ventilation and 
against fire, and, 
in brief, is a model 
newspaper edi 
fice, an ornament 

dence of the pros 
perity of the in 
fluential and able 
journal whose 
home it is. 

From a little 
bantling, one- 
thircl its present 
size, the MORNING 
NEWS launched 
upon the uncer- 
tain seas of jour 
nalism in 1850, 
with three for 
midable competi 
tors already occu 
pying the field, 
and at a time 
when public feel 
ing ran high in 
consequence of 
the diversity of 
interests and po- 


litical opinions in the South, by its persistent and fearless advocacy of consti 
tutional liberty, steadily progressed in the good will of the community. During 
the first decade of its existence it had written the obituaries of two of its 
original competitors and four subsequent journalistic rivals, and at the com 
mencement of the war, the MORNING NEWS and the old Republican were in sole 
possession of the field, and were undisturbed during the continuance of the 

The career of the MORNING NEWS during the war was similar to that of most 
papers in Southern cities, with the difference that it never suspended, save 
for a few days, consequent upon the occupation of the city by the Federal forces. 

From that time until 1867, when the present proprietor took charge, the MORN 
ING NEWS had a very precarious existence. From that period onward, however, 
there was a marked change in the paper; energy, good management, with the 
expenditure of every dollar that could be spared, soon placed the MORNING 
NEWS far in advance of its contemporaries, several new papers having been 
started after the close of the war. One by one these journalistic enterprises 


drooped and died, and in the summer of 1875, the MORNING NEWS, by absorbing 
the Advertiser, became the only daily paper in Savannah, and is so to this day, 
with little prospect of having any competition, as the experiences of the past 
ten years have demonstrated the fact that in the South, where there is almost 
entire unanimity of political views among the whites, one live, progressive 
journal fills the public demand. Such a journal is the MORNING NEWS, the ac 
knowledged head of the Georgia press, from its large circulation and great 

Particular attention is given to Georgia and Florida affairs, as also to South 
Carolina news, in which States the NEWS circulates largely, especially in Florida, 
where its circulation almost equals the combined circulation of the entire press 
of the State. Hence, to those desirous of obtaining correct information in re 
gard to Southwest Georgia and Florida, the MORXING NEWS is invaluable. In all 
its departments the paper is fully up with the spirit of the age, and is a credit to 
Southern journalism. 

The NEWS, however, does not confine its efforts to the section in which it is 
published, but stands prominent among Southern journals as a first-class me 
dium for general intelligence, and as a bold and fearless exponent of the princi 
ples of the democratic party. It publishes three editions a daily, tri-weekly 
and weekly. 

The rank which the NEWS has attained among the newspapers of the South 
is somewhat remarkable when it is taken into consideration that Savannah was 
outranked by a number of other cities in population before the war. 



The NEW YORK WEEKLY, which is universally recognized as " the greatest 
story and sketch paper of the age," came into the possession of its present pro 
prietors, Messrs. STREET & SMITH, in March, 1859. At that time its circulation 
was about 28,000 copies, and outside of the metropolis it was little known. Now 
the name of the NEW YORK WEEKLY has a familiar ring in every habitation 
within the boundaries of American civilization. Its constituency is numbered 
by millions, and its circulation is greater than that of any other paper in the 

The remarkable prosperity of the NEW YORK WEEKLY cannot be attributed 
to chance or luck. The tact, judgment, industry and enterprise of STREET & 
SMITH have commanded success where men of less pluck and energy would 
have ingloriously failed. 

Many publishers who have tried the experiment are aware that it is no 
child s play to compete with the numerous literary papers now established. But 
the NEW YORK WEEKLY, in its competition for popular favor, long since stepped 
far in advance of all opposition, and is now considered the leading literary 
paper in the world. 


A brief reference to the NEW YORK WEEKLY establishment, with a descrip 
tion of its various departments, may prove interesting to the reader. The NEW 
YORK WEEKLY buildings are located at Nos. 27, 29 & 31 ROSE STREET, within 
sight of the City Hall and the Post-office. 


The private offices of Messrs. STREET & SMITH and the publication depart 
ment are on the second story of No. 31. The office of Mr. FRANCIS S. STREET 
fronts on Rose street; and here the contributors and visitors who call for the 
first time are amazed on beholding piles of unpublished manuscripts, some in 
safes and some on shelves. 

The aggregate value of manuscripts now on hand, we have learned, is over 
two hundred thousand dollars. Fancy for a moment the anxiety with which 
these manuscripts are contemplated by the hundreds of writers whose busy 
brains and nimble fingers produced them. For years many of the authors have 
impatiently awaited the appearance of their works in print, and with keen eyes 
scanned each number of the NEW YORK WEEKLY, with the hope of finding the 
announcement that at last a definate day has been named for the appearance of 
the story which, it is hoped, is to bring fame, and consequently fortune, to the 

At the rear of the second floor is the sanctum of Mr. FRANCIS S. SMITH, which 
is tastefully decorated with paintings of a high order of merit. Here Mr. SMITH S 
pleasant face may be seen in a cloud of blue smoke, for he is an inveterate 
smoker, and seems to derive poetic inspiration from a cigar. Here the 
voluminous correspondence received each day is glanced over by Mr. SMITH 
after the business letters have been selected therefrom by Mr. STREET, who is 
the business manager and attends to all the financial matters. Mr. SMITH 
devotes his attention exclusively to the literary management of the paper, and 
while each partner is in a measure independent in his own sphere, perfect 
harmony prevails. 

The Publication Department is between the two offices just mentioned , The 


cashier and the receiving and mail clerks occupy this portion of the building 
The sides of the room are faced with boxes containing back numbers of the NEW 
YORK WEEKLY, for which there is a constant demand. 


The mailing room is 011 the second floor of No. 29. Numerous clerks are 
here kept busy putting the names of new subscribers in the mail books, writing 
wrappers, and preparing for the post-office the immense edition which each 
week is forwarded to mail subscribers. 


The editorial rooms are directly over the publication department. On one 
side of the room is the library a collection of useful works of reference. The 
great variety of information supplied by this library may be inferred by glancing 
over the correspondence column of the NEW YORK WEEKLY. Authors cannot 
object to our terming the editorial department the council chamber of a 
literary grand jury." Here a jury of four experienced journalists sit in judg 
ment upon the various manuscripts received. Upon their decision rests the 
hopes and fears of thousands of writers who have sought the NEW YORK 
WEEKLY as a medium to spread their productions broadcast throughout the 


The engraving department is on the same floor with the editorial rooms. 
The blocks from which the illustrations are printed are here engraved by a 
corps of competent artists. The subjects for illustration are usually selected by 
the editors, but sometimes by the draughtsmen. 


The composition room is on the fourth floor, over the editorial rooms. Here 
are arranged in proper order the multitudinous types which each week impart 
to the world instruction, entertainment, and amusement.. Here the interesting 
stories, the suggestive essays, the stirring poems, and mirth-arousing anecdotes 
are converted from manuscripts, letter by letter, and word by word, into square 
" forms " of type, ready for the electrotyper. So large is the circulation of the 
NEW YORK WEEKLY that nine sets of plates are taken by the electrotype!.- These 
duplicates are absolutely necessary, as nine presses, working night and^day, 
are required to print the immense edition of the NEW YORK WEEKY. 


The press-room is in the building No. 27 Rose street. In this department the 
nine presses, moved by an engine of 160 horse-power, may be seen at work, night 
and day, throwing off the printed sheets, ready for the counter, who counts and 
arranges the papers in bundles of fifty. One man is constantly employed count- 
ing the NEW YORK WEEKLY, and performs no other duty, his entire time being 
occupied in this work. When the edition is all printed, it is conveyed in wagons 
to the establishment of the American News Company, the wholesale agents, by 
whom it is distributed to the various retail agents throughout the country. 

The BOYS OF THE WORLD, a paper intended for the instruction and entertain 
ment of the rising generation, is also published by STREET & SMITH. This paper, 
although but seven months established, has a circulation of over 60,000 copies, 
and is greatly admired by the young folks. 

The MAMMOTH MONTHLY READER is another publication issued by STREET & 
SMITH. This, also, has a wide circulation, chiefly among mail subscribers, to. 
whom it is sent at the low price of seventy -five cents per year. 



Issued originally on April :?0, 1853, this is the oldest sporting paper in 
America. Its editor at the beginning is its editor to-day, and this enables the 
paper to be consistent with itself. Its reports are the work of trained minds, 
who have seen years of associated service ; its summaries are compiled with 
care, so as to be a reference for all time ; its comparative reliability has passed 
into a proverb, and its decisions upon mooted points are solicited from almost 
every known quarter. Recognized lor more than twenty years as the favored 
organ of the sporting community in America, since 1855 it has steadily grown 
in popular regard as the leading amusement journal of America. It is a reflex 
of -every phase of show life; its correspondents, almost ubiquitous, are 
numerous; its reports of amusements are fuller than those of any other journal 
published on this continent, while covering a greater area of countiy ; and its 

tired ^nes, have of THEN", i. "CLIPPEK " BUILDING. lhe week, Record of 
the De.ths of Prominent Individuals, CLIPPER Post-office List, and, finally, the 
department known as Answers to Correspondents, which, although from time to 
time treating of almost every known subject, are especially serviceable to 
persons seeking information concerning amusements or sports, the most trust 
worthy ad complete record of both of which are the files of the paper. The 
questions thus answered weekly have the supreme merit of being bona fide; 
and, aparfrom the instruction they afford, the answers are invaluable as de 
termining Disputes alike in the social circle and among professional people. 

THE NE\ YORK CLIPPER is essentially a journal of record and of reference. 
It is to be ejected that a newspaper possessing so many features, and in its 
fifty-six long Columns of compact type covering so vast a field, should be in 
demand in th business community. The extent of this demand is attested 
weekly by adVj-Uscments filling several pages, making public proclamation of 
manifold induces, and representing a thousand different interests. It has 


created a special class of advertisers, and yet all classes avail themselves of its 
columns, for its moderate tariff places it within reach of all. Its rates of adver 
tising are : 

For cards coming under the head of Amusements, fifteen cents per line for 
each insertion ; for cards of a Miscellaneous or Sporting character, twenty cents 
per line; for Notices, such as extracts from other papers and incorporated in 
News Departments (not to be inserted more than once), thirty cents per line. 
The terms are cash, with a reduction of twenty per cent, on all advertisements 
paid for three months in advance. The paper has no advertising agents, and 
has never solicited an advertisement. The subscription prices are $5 per 
annum, $2.50 for six months, and $1.23 for three months; single copies, 10 
cents. To clubs of four or more a reduction of fifty cents is made on each 
single subscription; but subscribers in Canada and the British Provinces are 
charged $1 per annum extra, to cover postage. No subscriptions in New York 
City are taken. All business letters or communications must be addressed to 
FRANK QUEEN, Editor and Proprietor NEW YORK CLIPPER, corner of Centre 
and Leonard streets, New York, where the paper occupies an elegant building 
expressly erected for it in 1869. 

" TIMES," TROY, N. Y. 


The TROY TIMES was founded in 1851 by Francis & Thompson. The latter 
retired in about one year, and John M. Francis continued the paper alone as edi 
tor and publisher until 1863, when Henry O R. Tucker became his partner and the 
business manager of the concern. The TIMES is one of the most succcessful jour 
nals in New York State, and enjoys a larger advertising patronage than any other 
paper in the State outside of the cities of New York and Brooklyn. Its circula 
tion is nearly double that of any daily in the State not metropolitan, and it is 
the favorite journal, not only in the city of Troy, but also in Northern New York 
and the adjacent portions of Vermont and Massachusetts. Its area of circulation 
and influence extends from Troy northward along both shores of Lake Cham- 
plain to the very borders of Canada. 

3 ii=i_i - il-J- **^- - "* ~r T^ *^k-!. -Tat*-... 


The TIMES has an influence commensurate with its business success, 
and its opinions and sentiments on all subjects are widely quoted, and 
command general attention. Its editor Hon. John M. Francis, has achieved 
almost a national reputation in his profession; while as a diplomatic rep 
resentative of our government at the court of Greece from 1872 to 1874, when 
he resigned the position, and as a traveler his name is well known in 
distinguished and educated circles in Europe. The TIMES is published in an 
elegant iron building costing upwards of $150,000, and its office appointments 
are unusually complete in detail and perfect in arrangement. The building 
occupies one of the most valuable sites in the city of Troy. It is four stories 
high, surmounted by a French roof with towers, and presents a very imposing 
architectural appearance. Its dimensions are 130 feet in length by 50 in width. 
The papei is printed upor- a four-cylinder Hoe rotary press, but its proprietors 
are now contemplating the purchase of a web perfecting machine, with which 
to lay its large and constantly-increasing edition more quickly and satisfac 
torily before its readers. The TIMES is Republican in its political convictions, 
and an earnest advocate of the principles of that party. During the war, so 
heartily had it espoused the cause of the government, that in the draft riot in 
the city of Troy, July, 1863, its office was mobbed, and all its type and material 


destroyed. The TIMES is a folio 29x41 inches in size, and contains eight columns 
upon each page. On Saturdays the size of the paper is increased by the addi 
tion of one column per page, in order to accommodate the pressure upon its 
advertising department. The system which prevails in the management of its 
business departments especially in the arrangement and classification of its 
advertisements is perfect in detail and admirably carried out. This, together 
with the large circulation of the paper, and the relative cheapness of its adver 
tising rates compared with those of journals of inferior circulation, makes its col 
umnsso attractive and valuable to all who desire to reach the public through the 
press. The TIMES is admirably printed, and typographically is excelled in appear 
ance by no daily journal anywhere. II is a representative newspaper every 
way in the clearness and freshness of its editorial discussions, in the unrivalled 
excellence of its news department and miscellaneous selections and in the full 
ness and intelligence of its correspondence from all parts of- the world. As a 
newspaper simply, it ranks with the best in this country ; while as an advertis 
ing medium it has no equal (in fact no single journal approaches it) in the ter 
ritorial limits to which its circulation is confined. 



This journal was founded in 185."), at a time when corruption in public affairs 
at San Francisco had become the rule, and all the avenues of justice were so 
completely in possession of the vicious classes, that virtue scarcely dared to 
raise its head There was slight exaggeration in the assertion often made in 
those days, that a ruffian thirsting for the blood of an enemy, or desiring to 
remove some human obstacle from his own path, could bargain in advance, 
with sheriffs and courts, and definitely arrange the sum for which he should be 
put through the forms of a bogus trial, and acquitted of the murder which he 
contemplated. Gamblers, thieves and ballot-box stuffers were the terror of the 
cities. The great majority of the people silently mourned this condition of 
affairs, but seemed powerless. The desperadoes were organized, and therefore 
formidable. The honest masses were without organization, and so their senti 
ments were not consolidated and embodied in action. It was in this condition 
of society that the EVENING BULLETIN came into existence. Its aim was, first, 
to interest the people by providing the fullest and most reliable news; and 
when its audience was thus secured, its second effort was addressed to the 
task or arousing: public indignation against the vicious classes, and to concen 
trate a sounc 1 sentiment for aggressive warfare upon them. It not only ex
