A DAT AXD SIGHT AT TBK SSTABU9H3tCST OP TUX SSW
After aeven o'clock in the evening, the eomponne
department becomes a perfect beehive of activity and
industry. Each workman is ia his place, and opera
tions are fairly ander way. At frequent intervals,
the signal bell notices the arrival of copy from the
editorial and business offices. This the foreman ap
portions out to the compositors in M stick fulls of
about twenty lines each. The arrangements air sucn
that it is almost impossible for mistakes to occur;
although fortr nenoas way be setting" the same
article, it is emptied on the galleys in its regular or-
aer, wiinout couiuion. aiwr it ua
corrected and revised, the matter is earned out
into the turtle room to be made up in the forms.
Generally, at about twelve o'clock, the four pages for
the first sidejtre made up and immediately lowerea
throatta an aperture constructed for the purpose, to
the Dress rooms. As soon after as possible the time
varying according to the importance and length of
the latest despatches received, from one to &uro cio
A. 1L the second side follows; and, excepting an
assistant editor to watch for any important news that
may arrive before the edition is worked off, ana a rev
hands to set a postscript, or repair any alight acci
dent that might happen to the forms, the composing
epartme&t is deserted until tae arrival or toe oay
The machinery department of the Herald is one of
its greatest features of superiority, the capacity Kr
producing being at least double that of any other es
tablishment extant. It is all located below the level
of the street and covers a space equal to 1100 super
ficial feet. The motive power is derived from an ele
gant high-pressure engine, which was erected a lew
weeks since, expressly for the purpose, by the iiessrs.
Hoe. It is rated at thirty horse-power. This engine
is the second one from the same set of patterns. The
first was erected by the Messrs. Hoe, at the tew Bible
House, about four years ago. W hile conversing with
the enrineer. a few days since, he informed us that.
although it had run nearly every working day since
it was put up, thus far not one cent has been expend
ed for its repair. The engine room is immediately
under the business office. The engine is supplied by
three boilers; two cylindrical, each eighteen feet long
by forty-two inches in diameter; and one tubular, or
locomotive, with a capacity equal to both of the
ethers. They are locate-1 at the extreme end or tne
vault on Nassau street.
The press room proper is located in an immense
vault, extending the whole length of both fronts of
the main building, and in width nearly to the center
of the street. It is 155 feet long, 18 feet in width,
and 18 in height. It is erected in the most substan
tial manner the outer section of the arch in stone
masonry, which is supported by iron rafters and ribs
from the principal structure. The roof, which forms
the sidewalk of the street, is composed of iron and
glass tesselated tiles, through which an abundant
light is received for day work. The apartment is
dry, well ventilated, and in every way all that could
be desired for the purposes required.
The press room is supplied with three of Hoe's
type-revolving printing machines, or lightning
Presses," as they are more usually designated by the
craft. One of them has six cylinders, the other (wo
have ten impression cylinders, making twenty-six in
all; which, calculating the speed of the machines at
forty revolutions per minute, at which rate they are
sometimes worked, presents the enormous quantity of
Un hundred and forty impressions per minute, or
sixty-two thousand four hundred in an hour, as the
present possible producing capacity of the establish
ment. However, some delay is occasioned in lifting
on the supply of paper, occasional readjustments of
tapes, etc.; but, on all ordinary occasions, the Herald
is printed at the rate of forty-five thousand impres
sions, or twenty-two thousand five hundred double or
triple sheets per hour.
The ten-cy linder machines were added to the estab
lishment a few weeks since they being the first and
only ones that have as yet been, finished end are
undoubtedly the largest, most rapid and costly print
ing apparatus in the world. That our readers may
have a fair conception of this wonderful production
of modern science and mechanism, besides the usual
perspective view, we present an engraving of the ele
vation, from the working plan, together with a com
plete inventory of the various parts. With the plat
forms attached, and the whole in working order, the
press measures 88 feet in length, 15 feet in width,
and 16 feet in height. The type cylinder is about six
feet in diameter, and is horizontally mounted on a
shaft with appropriate bearings. About one-fifth of
the circumference of this cylinder constitutes the bed
of the press, which is adapted to receive the form of
types; the remainder is used as a cylindrical distrib
uting table. The diameter of the cylinder is less
than that of the form of types, in order that the dis
tributing portion of it may pars the impression cylin
der without touching. The ink is contained in a
fountain placed beneath the large cylinder, from
which it is taken by a conducting roller, and trans
ferred by a vibrating distributing roller to the cylin
drical distributing table; the fountain roller receives
a slow and continuous rotary motion, to carry up the
ink from the fountain. The large cylinder being put
in motion, the form of types thereon is carried in
succession to ten corresponding horizontal impression
cylinders, arranged at proper distances around it,
which give the impression to ten sheets, introduced
one at each impression cylinder. For each impres
sion cylinder there are two inking rollers, which vi
brate on the distributing surface while taking a sup
ply of ink; and, at the proper time, pass over the
form, when they again fall to the distributing sur
face. Each page is locked up upon a detached seg
ment of the large cylinder, called a turtle, which
constitutes the bed and chase. The column rules run
parallel with the shaft of the cylinder, and are con
sequently straight; while the head, advertising and
dash rules are in the form of segments of a circle. A
areas section of the column rules would present the
form of a wedge, with the small end pointing to the
renter of the cylinder, so as to bind the types near
the top. These wedge-shaped column rules are held
down to the bed or turtle by tongues projecting at in
tervals along their length, and sliding in rebated
grooves, cut crosswise in the face of the bed, the
upaoe in the grooves between the column rules being
ailed with sliding blocks of metal, accurately fitted,
the outer surface level with the surface of the bed
the ends next the column rules being cut away un
derneath to receive a projection on the sides of the
tongues, and screws at the end and side of each page
to lock them together; thus the types are as secure
jo this cylinder as they can be on the old flat or any
jther bed. But one operative is required at each im
pression cylinder, who, owing to the arrangement of
tne platforms, are placed six one side or tne press and
four on the other. After the sheet is " fed in," it
passes around the small cylinder and receives the irn
. pression by coming in contact with the form on the
ain cylinder; and then, by tapes and rolls, is led
to an automaton fly boy, which deposits it in regular
order. The following table shows the number of
pieces in one of Hoe a ten-cylinder monster machines

There are also twenty thousand and sixty-three
of tape, " blankets" (which, by the way, are
equal to the finest pilot cloth.) for covering the im
pression cylinders, and a few other items not enumer
ated ia the above. The weight of the whole is twenty
tua, three-quarters and fourteen pounds; the cost of
esoh press is thirty taoosana dollars,
- Had space permitted, by way of contrast, it was
our intsHtioa to give a detailed description of the
Appfcgath" press, which is now ia use by the Lon
don Timet. This press, mad only five or six years
uee, priats only nine thousand sheets per hour.
Thw first steaaa press was pw, up by the Time in
1814, aad printed twelve hundred sheets per hour
thus in ar-?ut forty years the speed has oxJy increased
sevenfold. Steam presses were first used in this
country in 1833, and printed a little over two thou
sand sheets per hour. Now our ten-cylinder presses
can throw off twenty-four thousand sheets ; showing
aa increase of tenfold in twenty-five years. As be
fore intimated, the great superiority of the lightning
press is now universally acknowledged, on both sides
of the Atlantic; and the Messrs. Hoe are now build
ing two presses, precisely similar to the Herald's
which are to supplant Applegath's in the office of the
London Time. What a triumph for American in
genuity! One of those bloodless victories which are
most honorable to human nature man's grandest
efforts for the amelioration of his fellow man. Colo
nel Hoe has earned an imperishable fame. In the
history of " the art preservative of all arts," his'
name must ever stand by the side or a uuttemoerg
and a Stanhope.
The mechanical department of the Herald does not
lack that superior system of arrangement so observ
able in the ramifications of the whole establishment.
About fifty persons are employed in this department,
as follows : three pressmen, two engineers, two fire
men, twenty-six feeders, two greasers, four fly-board
tenders, two paper lifters, two paper wetters, two
roller casters, one paper divider, three office boys.
The paper room is in the sub-basement, and occupies
a space of forty by sixty feet square; here the bun
dles of paper are received, dampened, and prepared
for the press.
The distributing department of the Herald occu
pies the west side of the basement. The apartment is
thirty-five feet wide, and extends from the press room,
oa Fulton, to Ana street, a distance of about two
hundred feet. On the latter street, to facilitate the
movements of the great crowds that assemble, the
means of entrance and exit are by different doors.
Near these doors is a large picketed inclosure, within
which the salesman and his six assistants transact
their business. Along each side of the large room
are the counters for folding, packing mails, etc. As
fast as the papers are delivered from the presses, they
are carried by the flyboard tenders to the picketed
inclosure, where they are counted in bundles of fifty
each, and the distribution at once commences. In
all eases the mail packers are first supplied; then the
carriers receive, in their regular order; those from
the most distant districts first, and closing with the
party who serves that portion of the Second Ward in
which the establishment is situated. At times, how
ever, when from any cause the paper is late, the dis
tribution is varied, in order to prepare the bundles
for country dealers, wholesale packers, and those
who vend on cars and steamers, all of which must be
accomplished before six o'clock, at this season of the
year. There ia one interesting feature connected with
the distribution of the Herald that should be men
tioned: Our railroads are now like so many streets.
The city carrier distributes his papers at the doors of
his subscribers; the country carrier or agent dis
tributes his along the railroad track almost in the
same way, throwing his papers off at each station or
depot. New England, for instance, with its numer
ous railroads, in a newspaper carrier's point of view,
is like a large city the tracks forming the streets,
and the stations the subscribers' houses. Subscribers
in Poughkeepsie, etc, etc., daily receive the papers
before 9 o'clock AM.; those residing in the upper
part of the city seldom get theirs at an earlier hour.
When the mail packers, carriers, and wholesale deal
ers have received their supplies, the rush of the re
tail venders commences. During this delivery the
utmost excitement prevails. On extraordinary occa
sions, a mass numbering from fifteen hundred to two
thousand persons congregate, each eagerly pressing
forward, cash in hand, for his or her desired quantity
of Heralds. A more heterogeneous assemblage it
would be difficult to imagine; all ages, sexes and
conditions are represented ; boys from six to men of
seventy years of age; girls from eight to the sprightly,
blushing damsel of sixteen, as well as .decrepit old
woman with gray hairs and sorrowful looks; but the
same anxiety is depicted on every countenance all
as though their very existence depended on their re
ceiving their supply of Heralds', and the numerous
methods adopted to attract the attention of the sales
man is, at times, highly amusing. In some rare in
stances, the pressure becomes so great that it is ne
cessary to invoke the aid of the police before the dis
tribution can proceed; however, generally the great
est good humor and hilarity prevails, and since the
introduction of the new presses, the demands of the
venders can be much more expeditiously satisfied.
Finally, the whole edition is delivered, and the sales
man proceeds to make up his accounts. Every paper
printed is accounted for; how many the mail, each
carrier, agent, dealer, etc., procured, is precisely
noted; the cash is correctly balanced, and checks and
books returned to the business department.
Nearly twenty persons are regularly employed in
this department, about ten of whom are engaged in
mailing. The whole number of carriers is sixty-six,
forty-one of whom are engaged in the city proper,
and the remaining twenty-fiTe in the suburbs. Many
of these carriers are in very comfortable circum
stances, and a few have accumulated respectable
competencies by the sale of the Herald alone. Each
has his particular district, or " route," upon which
no encroachment is allowed.
The following are the various editions of the Her
ald, Til.: regular, or morning edition, issued every
day in the year, except on the second of January
and the fifth of July; evening, or " second edition,"
issued at one-and-a-half o'clock P.M.; "third edi
tion," at three P. M. The Weekly Herald, the first
and largest, on Thursday, for country circulation;
the second, on Saturday, for city circulation. Dur
ing the week, there are usually two editions of the
European Herald; and on the fifth and twentieth of
each month, an edition expressly for California, Aus
tralia, Sandwich Islands and the Pacifiio coast. The
above embraces all the regular editions; yet, on the
receipt of intelligence that is deemed of sufficient im
portance to require immediate publicity, an " extra"
is issued at any moment.
like all newspapers of large circulation, the num
ber of the daily issues of the Herald varies. Since
the new machinery was put in operation, not less
than seventy thousand, and in some cases as many as
eighty-five thousand per day have been distributed.
For some time past, the paper bills have been for
twelve hundred and fifty reams a week, to make
which requires the whole capacity of Messrs. Persse
& Brooks' Windsor Locks Mills, which is probably
the largest paper manufactory in the world. The
usual morning edition, if laid in a straight line,
would reach a distance of about fifty miles; and, if
spread out would cover an area equal to seventeen
acres. A tun of ink is required for a week's supply;
and three hundred pounds of composition for rollers
is used in the same time.
As near as can be ascertained from observation and
long expjrience, the Herald directly affords employ
ment, in different capacities, to between one and two
thousand persons; and it may safely be affirmed that
three times the latter number derive a livelihood from
Nearly the whole revenue of the establishment is
derived from the advertising patronage. Even for a
double sheet, the price received scarcely covers the
prime cost of paper, ink, and press work; yet Mr.
Bennett has firmly determined that it shall not be in
creased, although he should find it necessary to issue
a triple sheet daily. The adverising patronage is
tremendous although none is solicited by canvassers
or otherwise, and patrons are frequently requested to
practice brevity, and avoid display in their announce
mentsoften embracing six whole pages of the paper.
The rates of advertising for each insertion are from
ten to twenty-five cents per line, according to the po
sition occupied. The system of advertising adopted
by Mr. Bennett, gives a value and a freshness to the
Herald that no other paper possesses. The renewal
of the advertisements daily makes the business part
of the paper the most interesting of the city news of
the day presenting a coup d'ail of the affairs of
the active daily business portion of this great metrop
olis. The whole capital invested in the Herald, inclu
ding real estate, machinery and all, is between four
and five hundred thousand dollars.
While it is not our province to discuss the positions
maintained by sir. .Dennett on political, religious and
social subjects, during his long public career, still
this paper would be incomplete were we to omit all
mention of his extraordinary energy, sagacity, perse
verance and ability as a journalist and business man.
That he has all these qualities to an extent perhaps
scarcely ever before witnessed in a single individual,
his most unscrupulous rival will readily admit. He
is one of the pioneers of the grand system of modern
journalism, by which newspapers have been changed
from mere announcement sheets to the great moral
engines that shape the destiny of nations. He was
the first to perfect a fystem to procure important in
telligence, at all times, regardless of cost; it was to
be secured first, the expense counted afterward. Be
fore these days of telegraphs, steamers and railroads,
his news-boats boarded every vessel from a foreign
port simultaneous with the pilot ; his horse express
would start from Washington, Boston, Albany, etc,
whenever occasion demanded. He originated the
system of full stenographic congressional reporting,
which has since been adopted by government; and on
the completion of the magnetic telegraph, the speeches
of Mr. Calhoun and others, often filling several col
umns, the expenses of which were as many hundred
dollars, were frequently received by telegraph, and
appeared in the Herald the morning after their de
livery, ine wnoie repononat system now generally
adopted by first class newspapers was first arranged
for the Herald. Mr. liennett estabiisoed toe cash
system, by which the business has not only become
more lucrative, but the prices of papers adapted to
the circumstances of the most humble.
For some years past, the leading journals in the
different cities have combined in an arrangement,
under the title of the Associated Press," by means
of which, through the agency of the magnetic tele
graph, the news of the day is interchanged through
out the Atlantic States and British Provinces. Al
though theHerald has the full benefit of this organ
isation, srHbe system of special agents and corres
pondence is maintained as heretofore; and during
the sessions of congress, and the various State Legis
latures, the special dispatches by telegraph will often
fill Beveral columns. The completion of the great
Atlantis Submarine Cable, by which all the lines,
embracing forty-thousand miles in the United States,
and thirty-three thousand miles in Europe, wilT be
connected, will place accounts of nearly all the im
portant events of the world at our very doors almost
immediately on their occurrence. The London Ex
change closes at three o'clock; and as the difference
in time between that city and New York is four hours
and forty-five minutes, the report of the price of con
sols will be received by eleven o'clock, in time for
operations in Wall street on the same day. The move
ments in both the London and New York money mar
kets will, therefore, appear in the evening editions of
the Herald on the 3ame day on which they occur.
The results of the daily sitting of the British Parlia
ment, although they may be prolonged till two o'clock
on the morning, will reach here at ten o'clock on the
preceding evening, and in time to be published in
the leading journals of our principal cities simulta
neously with their appearance in the London Times.
A column of matter received by this ocean telegraph
will cost about $2,000.
We have thus endeavored to give the readers f the
United States Magazine a dear view of the wonder
ful progress which has been made in the last few
years in the manufacture of newspapers. In doing
this, we have endeavored to confine ourselves strictly
to facte; and have made all our statements upon
what, after due inquiry, appeared to us as reliable
authority. To illustrate the subject fully, from facts,
it was necessary to go somewhat minutely into de
tails; and for that purpose it became necessary, also,
to select some leading newspaper establishment for
the basis of our details. In selecting the Herald, we
disclaim any desire or intention to institute a compar
ison between that and other leading journals in the
city or country. Our aim in this paper is simply to
illustrate the power and progress of journalism. That
could best be done by a single example.

WHALING GUN, PATENT BOMB LANCES
AND GUN HARPOONS. )
A FTER SEVERAL YEARS LABOR AND
X experimenting upon whales, on the whaling ground, with
his apparatus, combined with the advantages of being a practical
whaleman, the Patentee has been enabled to obtain an Instru
ment In form of a Bomb Lance, which for utility pni effective
ness cannot be excelled. L :'
The attention of Agents and Officers of whale-sMps Is cai
to the following testimonials.
Sax Fraxcisco, January 10, 1868.
Capt. R. Brows Sir. I take this opportunity to inform
you that we used UksV Bomb Lances we bought of you, and
found them to be o. neiiefit in capturing whales amongst
The first whate Uiai vrc nucd the Bomb Lance on was killed
in the following manner . The boat went alongside of the whale
and the boat-steerer fired a Bomb Into him aod then fastened to
him with a gig iron : the Bomb was heard to explode, and the
whale did not blow aftsjr the Bomb exploded. The above-mentioned
whale was in the ice, and it is our opinion that we should
not have got that whale and many others that we did get, if it
had not been for your Bomb Lances, and we fully recommend
them to the attention of those fitting out whale ships.
Thomas Wall, Master bark George.
" Hosolclc, March 17, I860.
Capt. Robert Brows My dear Sir t I used your Bomb
Lances in taking a whale, north, the past season, which made
260 U.U. of oil. We never could have taken him without said
Lances, as our boats could not get near enough to use the com
mon band lance.
