that at every point he was f ecognized as the

him as he passed through the canons are de
scribed as being sublime and magnificent in
the highest degree. Having entered upon his
Executive duties, and having heard of malty
complaints, he caused a public notice 'to be
given of his . readiness to relieve those who
deemed themselves aggrieved by being illegal

the protection of all'Sttelt persons. Ile kept

The necessity of reducing the publication of
Newspapers' to a rash basis has long been
apparent to every one. engliged in the business
Subscriptions are so widely diffused that the
proceodS cannot:be made available„ for any
sudden emergency, and hence the printer is
willing to. allow a discount of 26 per rent on
the pittance of two dollars, as an inducement
to his subscribers to make advance payments.
Even this offer, liberal nu it is, is •o , ften disre

tion of our readers to the following article on
lids subject, from the Pittsburgh Dispatch.
The Country Press must adopt the cash
system. and insist upon pay ill advance for
every subscription, before they can expect to
prosper, The Butler American, for instance,
in a recent issue, states that since, the _paper
came under the control of the•present•propri
etors, the receipts hake not been sufficient • .to
buy the white paper on which it is printed."
How half the country papers manage to exist
at all under such a miserable policy is a mat
ter of untr‘vel. Hundreds of offices can show
on their books two. three and six thoOsand
dollars, trusted out in small Sumsr,•over a
wide section of country, the collection of which
Would,involve a cost almost equal to the a-.
mount involved.--The persons owing these
driblets are many of them subsbuitialfarmers,
who neglect to "pay the printer' from month
to month, not because they are unable, but
because the onartiu& is .small endugh
,to be
classed among convenient 'obligations, 'to be
paid at an indefinite (lay, out of an indefinite

,So the proprietor of a country
printing office—generally one of the cleverest
and most generous of men—shirks along,tnkes
pay in miscellaneous farm products, 'when his
wants are pressing, and calculates his profitS
by an invoice of very dubiouS accounts due on
his books.. •

much stroller incomes than white mien, soon

John Chinaman was a desirable acquisition to
the population of California, but the increased ,
numbers of his race who flocked hither, soon -
rendered him a nuisance. Many papers in

' all show their" unfitness for association and
