If we cm n establish its neces- sity, i's to live, then its claim f'T an indepiii'.ili'iii. ailequute support, weslmll deduce with loiiiiriil i-erminty. we ineiin by neee.s.-i'y will not be comprehend- ed by those whuM> idi'as of usefulness are the ground that a school is a necessity, is not slow to furnish the mi-ans to pay tin- necessary expenses incurred. A religious. association tl at tukes the position that a plnce of worship must be'-uilf, nnd n pub- lic teacher maintained in such a manner lhat he need not dwarf his mind by pon- dering on the necessary connection bc- hia last shilling and hunger, is provident enough to provide against the calamity of taking poor gospel frmn a man nmde lean by endeavoring to do God ervice on an emt stomach. So the service on newspaper an empty editor and publisher, who is expected to be teacher, pronchcr, polili- riun, and educator generally, should boas amply provided fur his papi-r will be n file simile of the general support it re- ceives. The law of cause and effect opc- rali'S with tremendous cortainty in ncwu- pnper offic.es as well as elsewhere. A lean support results in having a paper printed on old type, a general debility diffuses itself through the institution, and finally ttik.3 hold of thu brain of the editor. For this result, which ofti-n overtake? some confiding. Imput'til meniber of our craft, let it. not be .supposed that thu people generally nre primarily, or t-i any consid- erable extent, tn blame. There is a certain t-l'iirm bv which dreamy are inflncnci'd in entering into liu- incss. Such u having 'a liitle of the fanci- ful in their make-up, have never been fully i convinced of the truth of the stubborn. i mathematical fact, that it tales just one hundred cents to 'make .a dollar. They nre minus the financial faculty, when they launch. Ts it strange they utrike a bar before failing Tar? An army of aspirants for deathless oditoriul lame are in this wny attached only to Mich substances as can be converted into food for the stomach, i-r covering! the but a necessity Mich ii.i grows out or a high tyjie of civili- zation, si neeessity like that of I he flouring mill in li.-ii "f tliu primi-ive means used by saviifies iind fiioiiei-ris to piepare their food lor iimKl'enti- n ncei-Sbitj like that which 1m.- aside the post cnae.li, and driven the locomotive svvii'tly over.the onee tiavi'lod route; or, to come nearer home, Inis laid aside tho humble ox cart, and put in its plant the cnsy-springed vehicle in which to go to market, to meeting.

And in return for tins, the sys- tem of modern advertising 1ms revolution- ized public journalism. But fur it, thou- sands of tho papers that now cxi.tt wuuld down ut nnee. The innas of men but poorly appreciate the obligations tbey are under to the business men for furnishing them with cheap reading. A well estab- lishrd paper under the present system, would need to increase its circulation mure than three-fold to enable it to dis- pense with tho income usually received from Advertising. Wlii.'e acknowledging the obligation the is under to the real, active, energetic businessmen of the country, I am by m> means with the. manner iu which they are tuffeied by their nuigliburs in the game business, to use the columns of the newspaper gene- rally. As in everything else, the enter- prising rind farfceing enjoy the lion's share >f the benefit, by continually keeping themselves und their buMiiCfH before the- public. Go where you will, loot into hat paper you phase, and you will find that a few men take up nil the space usually allotted to advertising, wh'lc the great body uf the traders and business mcri are represented in the advertising of their village paper at all. This should nut .be so. but a newspaper should be the bust possible index of the legitimate business of a plncn. To this end the nd- should be shorter, more them. Tlit; man who expects custo- mers for goods, wares, or labor, should let it be known that ho exi.stg, what he is what he is ready to do, and above all, wltfrr he is to bo found. I appeal to any nan that travels in these days, if he dues nut, befc.re starling, consult the pub- lie prints to see which route to patronize, which offers the best inducements; and he maps out just, what he will do, and where ho will go, in the quiet of his own home, or place of business.

Tlie dissemination of light, by the- of the printing press, so augmented i he intelli- pence ofthe people, thtit JRefortntiiion In lleligion, Revolution in Government, Pro- gress in Science, Discovery in Art. and general education wus the slow, but. sine result.

Further-' mute, the country is necessary as a men us for propiiring the way for the'rc- ft'pliijn of the metropolitan journal. The existence of the journal that.numbers its issues by the hundred thousand, is only possible because in humble lininup nil over (he land, the sheet that ci.ineH ludi-ii with Hem.- in whikh he is more inliinati'ly in- KMcsted, has begot wiihin him a thiiM for tin re general inioimation.

WhUo contemplating the immensity of tho issues thrown off by the giant steam of the lar.d, in attempting to pute tho influence of the grcnt mctropoli- tiin journals of the dty. and measure the inoiive power mentally, of the unnumbered magtiEinep nnd pcriodicnls that are nnw produced, it may bu thought that tho vocation bt.'iiig humble conduo- tnis of the .c.o.untry compara- tively will find ite warme.-t li icMids, its life-long. living snl'.-eribers among those who demiincl more tief.li reading than one country weekly can furnish. The news- paper publisher who teets jealous uf MIC city journal, feels an envious desire to rout it out, iiii-tcacl of upon it as an auxiliary, has mistaken his mission, ami is wilting energy ihat if expended in siitiie outline nioru suited to his inentnl ealibic, would miikc him tin independent man, ins'ead t'f a cringing, whining, ptiverty-htiicken editor. As a further proof of the necessity of tlic. country pro.'-e, I affirm that it bears the same relation to tho.pcople, the'igre'at mass of whom the country, in re- gard to their education from youth tip .to manhood, and on to old thct the common school docs to them whilel their school-going days arc beingspent. If .tho school begins their education; teaches them the rudiments, the local newspaper not only keeps green the memory ofwliut those who suooecd in making a good paper; who maintain it for a scries of yearn, and who pay their debts as well ns their neighbor.', do not have nn adequate ci.nnpensiition from their ordinary, regular and legitimate business to compensate for the care, the labor, the responsibility, and the talent laid out upon their respective shouts. Now look over your fields of ]nbor, brethern of the "quill" und thu and sec how often you have been indebted to n propitious turn of the political wheel for the means to help you over a hard spot in your finances. So far as tliis ia actually tho case, to n certain uxtcnt an editor is a politir-.nl slave. Now 1 hold that independent of any income that may accrue to n newspaper publisher by a fortunate throw of political dice, ho should so conduct his business that it would be independent of the smiles or frowns of and it' their favors come, as angels' visits receive tluni like lepncies from dead uncles, not jis the l.ll'e-Uood.'of your.' enterprise. in order to put our busi- ness on such u basis as I have indicated, and secuie such a remuneration as a ju-, dici'in.-ly conducted country press de- serves, 1 hold there is but just one.way in which wo eitn surely, independently, and righteously secvrc the'end. And that iV to cense our insane attempts to compete with the niumnmth city press in tlie price of our papers. The idea that a country press can make more money, by nellinc its issue for per year, instead o' is n delusion, and us practical workings rc-Kull in depriving you of your just The firtt argumctit for so gelling your paper is, that enough more will take it to make good the lots; 2d, that you must doit, or next new dress purchased, ftud all her the- city journal, sold- at a dollar annum, will run you out. The first' is per fallacious for'the reason .that country press has not pxt'tnt.of territory suffieietit- 10 'legitimately' it to atr tnin circulation to prove the .doe.trine; There is'only about, sucli a portion of" the people who are. sufficiently .doveliiptd to see iho need of supporting, their local''pa- per's.' Let these bo told frankly and honestly that they tire not paying enough lor it; that it would be of tar more intrin- sic worth to sutfaint-cl, and' iiiiu'-'ti'Uths of your [latrons would chcer- lully add tlie miall ,.ittancc to ifiom. but the aggrepate'to you would itiakc? 11 finite difference that oxists between justice and 'a species 'of roobery. :.Thf 2cl thnt you must do it or be overrun city not a good one, u ml your own shows ih'nt it is nut fear i" thin' respect that rules' the price of your jiiurnals in 'tliis section'.of the State; for if'it was, you would sell for instead of Vfei havc'comp'ro-' miscd the matter by'stopping half wav.

No amount of advertising can preserve a man's reputation who deliberately and .systematically falsifies his offers made to the public. Jf you advertise you have a good stock and are selling cheap, prors it by y.ouivacts, and then advertising will bring good customers by bringing the same men to your counter several' times in the year. Take opposite course, and thoro is no salvation for you, either in "Printer's Ink" or out of it, as a life- long reliable buniucss man. 1 here is cause for congratulation on the part of our fraternity, that justice long lirlayed by the law-making power of the States, WHB at tho last session awarded to in a measure, so fnr o.s Icgftl incuts arc Concerned In ft measure, 1 say, because tho law is not perfect yet, in that it requires in some instances double the longt h of time for which il awards pay.
