u The printer is one of the class of public men
that probably exercises greater influence for good
or evil, than any other, not even except.ng the
clergy, or those of the legal profession. The
Dres is the great engine of civilization, and the
printeris not only its engineer, but he is its life
and oul, and the mind that gives us intelligence
and influence. Western Citizen.
We have frequently been tempted to speak ol
the duties, responsibilities, and of the qualifica
tions of the printer ; and in the above text we pro
ceed to remark
I The Printer has the power of doing more
o-ood than any other man. Through his hands
every book, essay, communication and letter that
is wiven to the public must pass. He, therefore,
: first mndeacouainted with every"new ihrory in
philosophy, discovery in science, production of
literature, and with every new thought that is
written. He has thus the means of becoming a
very intelligent man, and as his business stands
between the author and the public, he is not on
ly the medium of communication, but his intelli
gence mak'-s him the only founder of publications
That are to enlighten the people; and very often
does he become the able author andeditor. It is
estimated that there are 2000 serial puhlications
in the United States; at least the proprii torship
of 1800 of these is in the hands of professional
printers. All country papers are owned by and
mainly edited by printers, and at least two-thirds
of all citv publications are owned and conducted
in the same way. Thus we see taat the printer
not only sets the typo, but actually writes or selects
most ol tne matter i nat amuses ana instructs our
vast population. How great then is the power
he wields 1 .
2. But not only is he powerful in this, but the
very manner in which he shall execute this art
the mechanics of printing are powerfully influen
tial for good when accompanied with that accuracy
ana Deauiy which iiuriiiciiwc tun luipnii iu im.ui.
There is a captivating spirit in beauty, and no
where can beauty be more charmingly impressed
than in the typographical art A book sent out
by a miserable workman, lacking all the excel
lencies of the art, is repulsive in all its pages, and
the reader opens it with a disrelish of its contents.
But on the other hand a book of clear, plain let
ter, and of true artistic work, possesses an attrac
tive appearance on every page, and multitudes
who are not inclined to read are led to admire its
beauty and then to overcome that intellectual dull
ttess which has them in ignorance. Thus we
see that every thing connected with the printing
art can be made powerfully instrumental for pub
3. But more than this : Multitudes write
brilliant thoughts, who are unable to punctuate
properly, or even express themselves in the style
best calculated to give force to their thoughts; and
those who can write accurately, make many mis
takes when in haste. Now the printer, if he be
as he should be, stands at his case and with the
crudely written manuscript before him, can put it
into such a form as will most agreeably surprise
the author, and make him appear as a scholar as
Vvell as a philosopher. The printer can thus send
out what may electrify the reader, while it would
fall "stillborn," or perhaps excite disgust and rid
icule if published as written. The printer who is
truly what he should be, is much like the repor
ters of speeches in congress, who, it is well
known, by their skill in writing, make the crudest
efforts appear the most polished, and send out
speeches that operate powerfully upon the public,
which, if printed as delivered, would only biing
the orator into contempt.
What, then, must be done to elevate and dignify
the Art of Printing, and enable printers to wield
the power they possess? On this branch of our
inquiry we make the following suggestions:
1. The printer must be well paid. . In this gol
den agu, when every man must either " dig " for
himself or speculate out of others, there must be a
good compensation to secure the best lalent ThU
talent is required in printing to make it tell the
most powerfully upon the public.
2. The business of the printer is confining and
injurious to health. We wish we had the bill of
mortality among printers, that others might see how
Tata! this business is when sedulously pursued
They must, therefore, be so paid that they need
not sacrince mcmseives, ana to tnis ena we ap
plaua their attempts to raise their wages.'
3. The public should be p-enerous to the prin
ter, because the best interests of the' people are id
nis nanas. l nose who patronize him, should pay
nun promptly and with a free gooa will; Tttey
should no more expect to get the productions of
nis art wunout promnt and liberal payment, than
tojget the sustenance of their physical life without
a just cquivaieoc But manv underrate the win
ter's products ;. they look upori them as things that
can, be dispensed with, and .are. often rnore inclin-
ea to hoard their dimes for the;gratification of . the
miser's spirit, than to purchase that which will
give them some character ; in the World and' in
crease their happiness. Such pdrsons' know that
ihey have, bodies like ll other animals, but
ihey.de not often think : theyhave;minda which
wo make them great and perhaps the truth js
y have not, for that is a small spirit that has
"yUpm.uch reSard for the mind as the body.
. . Pri"iers themselves should attempt to elavate
tneir profession. By this ' we mean, that' they
should cultivate that moral purity which scorns
the manners of the loafer, and drive from their
crafi allihose who may be found degrading it by
immoral publications. " ' - . - .
Any printer who sets a type conveying on un
holy thought and calculated to degrade the reader,
should be marked by the profession and banished
from the craft. ; They should also bring their in
fluence to bnr upon alt the publishing houses so
as to forbid the employment of such as are not
qualified to do honor to the Art. To do this they
must combine all the really meritorious, and swear
that no employer who degrades the art, by immo
ral publications or by employing incompetent
hand?, shall have their services on any terms. Lt
the wages be raised so that inte lligent and skillful
printers can afford to remain in the profession,
and these can bring such an influence to hear as
will soon make the art what it should be, the om
nipotent power of the world. Intelligence, virtue,
and every improvement would thus be rapidy ad
vanced. Nonpareil and Herald Cincinnati.)

of August and September in said cities, getting up onr
CLOTH ING, every article of which teat cut by myself,
and made up under my own inspection ; and 1 presume
there ia no one in North Carolina now, who would be
verdant enough to question my capacity after the elo
quent tribute paid to my " artistic skill" in our last Su
perior Court, by Judge, Counsel on both sides, witness
es aud Juiors. 1 refer to the case of "Biggs vt Oli
ver" action for damages, iu which 1 had to pay $250,
in consequence of my extended reputation.
Come in, if you please, and assist me in paying off"
the judgment by buying our Goods. Who is there, in
North Carolina, who has not heard of the Hon. George
E. Badger, the Hon.-William H. Haywood, Jr., and
Bug " Oliver ? Why their fame is no more to be
hemmed in by State lines than Iheirjtalentsare to be cir
cumscribed within the same narrow limits."
We are connected, as all our customers know and if
they don't know it, they may-with no Northern House
