THS STORY OF TUB NEW YORK HERALD.
The first number appeared on the 6th ol
May, 1835, "price one cent, and for sale every?
where." It was started without capital. Two
youog printers, named Anderson ana Smith,
agreed to print it and share the profits or
losses. The firm name was James Gordon
Bennett & Co. Another printer, of his own
name, refused to accept a half Interest In the
project, preferring to work at a salary, and so
continued lor thirty-four years to serve the
Journal which he saw grow from nothing into
a magnificent property. The publication office
and editorial room was a deep cellar at No. 20
Wall street, where Bennett transacted all tbe
business of the little concern, received adver?
tisements, sold copies of the paper, and wrote
all the articles, reports and paragraphs behind
a deal board. The late William Gowans, book?
seller, wrote the following description ol a
visit to the office soon alter the paper was
established: '. Tbe proprietor, editor and
vender was seated at his det>lc, bujily engaged
writing, and appeareo to pay little or no atten?
tion to me as I entered, un making known
my object in coming In, he requested me
to put my money down on the counter and
help myself io a pap jr; ail this time be contin?
uing bis writing derations. Tne office was a
single oblong underground loom; Its furniture
consisted of a counter, which served also as a
desk constructed from two flour barrels, per?
haps empty, standing apart from each other
about lour feet, with a single plank covering
both;a chair, placed in the centre, upon which
sat the editor, busy at his vocation,'.-with an
inkstand by hts right hand; on the end near?
est the door were placed tbe papers lor sale."
It was a small four-page sheet, Bold for one
cent. There was very little news, for Bennett
had no money to spend in collecting new?,
but lt was bright, sharp, Insolent, personal
conolse, and novel. Readers stood aghast at
tn? boldness of this unknown Scotchman, who
violated all the proprieties which newspapers
had been accustomed to respect, and attacked
private character with such reckless freedom
and such wicked good humor. The paper Im?
mediately became disreputable and soon be?
came popular. It offended alf parues and all
creeds. It was denounced from the Catholic
pulpits for blasphemy. It shocked the sense
ot decency ot all respectable Protestants. And
of course people bought lt out of curiosity, and
blushed to be seen reading it. Bennett had no
assistant in writing it. He rose at flv? in the
morning, and worked in his room until eight.
Then he sat In his cellar until alter noon, sell?
ing papers, writing advertisements for cus?
tomers whose education had been neglected,
and preparing copy tor the printers. Al one
he went out Into the streets to pick up news
and gossip. From four to six he was again at
his counter, and the evening was spent
gathering materials for reports In the next
day's paper. He could not have gone through
tnese sixteen or seventeen boure of drudgery
had not his vigorous constitution been
strengthened by the abstemious and reguiar
habits by which his lite was always marked
At the end ot five weeks the paper waa gain?
ing headway, but still he did not meet ex
.pentes. He now thou, ht, of telling the publlo
every day what had been done in the stock
market the day before. The money article,
now such an Important feature ol every lead
lng newspaper, was then unknown. Tne first
ever published In the United States appeared
In the Herald, June 13, 1835. At the end ol
the third month the receipts equalled the ex?
penditures, and Mr. Bennett hired his first re?
porter. The next mooth the printing office
was burned, and Anderson and Smith, dis?
couraged, abandoned the enterprise. But
the Herald was "raked out ol tbe ashes" and
re-established, on August 31, at No. 202
Broadway, with Bennett as Bole proprietor,
and the printer of bis own name almost his
?ole compositor. Thence the office was re?
move., October 12, to No. 148 Nassau street, "a
remarkably pious, theological und religious
neighborhood," says the Herald ol that date,
with the Bible Society, Tract Socieiy, Dr.
Spring's Church, and Arthur Tappun's Anti?
slavery Society lor surroundings. At this
time Bennett advertised, editorially, for a
business partner, and explained briefly bow
the Herald hud been established and Its con?
dition and prospects. The statement la a rev?
elation of character as well as a history ot the
paper. -'Heretofore," he says, UI have done
everything myself-I have written my own
editorials-I have written my own police re?
port*-I have written my own Wall street re?
ports-I have written my own squibs, crack?
ers and jeux d'esprit. I have been my own
clerk and accountant, posted my own books,
made out my own bills, and generally attend?
ed to the business In the office. Now, as the
buslnes-. of the Herald ls rapidly Increasing, I
should like to get some competent business
person to become connected with me as a part
owner and proprietor, one who- would devote
the whole of his lime, aa I do mloe, to the
business of ihe office. I will venture to say.
wit ho ut any boa?u that lor the last six months
I have written more matter lor the press, and
collected, more facts of every kind, than any
three editors in this city. Bur, in addition to
this labor, tbe business coucerns ot such an
establishment as the Herald is a little
more than one man cand ?. I would, there?
fore, like to nave a business partner lu wbom
I could place entire confidence" (how like a
man wno never had confidence lo any one
but himself !) "and If he could bring into the
concern capital sufficient to make certain im?
provements, enlargements, eec, we could
make tbe Herald in less than a year surpass
every paper in the city And yield a clear an?
nual Income of from $12.000 to $20,000." In
seven years he had, uualded, made the In?
come of the paper $100,000, and for many
years Dasi lt bas been ten or flfieen times the
nighest expectations of 1835. lu the tame ar?
ticle be makes the ourlons statement that the
Courier and Enquirer, "which Heaven knows
can boast of little caDital and enterprise,'' had
been started in 1829 with a debt of $50,000,
and waa then (1845) "annually clearing $37,
000 over and above its expenses." In con?
cluding his unsuccessful bia lor a partner,
Bennett added: "There never was In New
York such a field ol enterprise presented as
* lerfe ls at this moment-and now ls the mo?
ment to step in and plough, sow, p.ant and
reap the virgin soil. The invention of Bleam
power does not surpass the Invention cf the
After its re-establishment, the Herald had a
struggling but not doubiful existence. Its
total cost for an edition of two thousand,
which lt attained in'September, 1835, was fifty
dollars a day. It contained only local news,
tte chief topic of Interest being told In detail,
the minor news condensed but never omitted.
The greal|flre of December 16, 1835, gave the
struggling Journalist an opportunity to display
his pren liai talents In inls direcilon, and for
many weeks alter - the fire the Herald was
filled with accounts of the appearance of the
ruin?, the incldenls of the conflagraron, tbe
struggles ot merchants to retrieve tbelr
losses, and the rebuiaing ol the burned o la?
trie t.. Of the edition of December 21, misera?
bly illustrated, li fi y thousand copies were
(dinted. This method of relating in detail and
a familiar style, events of purely local inter?
est, was a new revelaron in Journalism, and
Bennett found that it repaid him handsomely.
Shortly after, In 1836, wben Helen Jewell was
mysteriously murdered, he employed the same
system and described the scene of the murder,
the life ol the creature and her surroundings
with a falthfulnesj of detail which would put
to shame the Police Gazettes ol the present
day. He did not hesitate to relate in like
manner the several castigations which be suf?
fered, nor even Ave y^ara later lo describe
bis own marriage (June c, 1840) in the follow?

BENNETT'S PERSONAL APPEARANCE.
In personal appearance Mr. Bennett was li
many respects remarkable. He was consido
rably over six feet la height, and down ti
within a year or two he walked erect aud a
straight aa an arrow, and with the statel,
tread of an old soldier. He was slignt o
figure, but strong limbed, and the strength, o
bis arms was something remarkable. He wai
very fond ol physical exercise, and generali;
employed the early hours of dawn In running
la Highland lashlon. around the walks at hi
Fort Washington borne. His countenance li
lils later years was not unprepossessing
though a sirabismal affection gave a peculla
appearance io hts large features.
MR. BENNETT'S WILL.
Mr. Bennett always betrayed a desire to re
tain the ownership ot the Herald np to tlx
moment ot bis death. But he was not un
mindful of the duty ol disposing ot his proper
ty. shortly before his wile and daugbtei
went io Europe, the venerable journalis
made a will which was satlslaciory to UK
family. He dealt out his wealth with i
princely hand, and each of his ihree heirs arc
now ihe absolute owners of millions of dollars
The tallowing are said to be the principal pro
visions ol the will:
To his Bon, James Gordon Bennett, he glvei

the site o? the Herald, lt is Bald that ibe will

To his widow he gives ihe mansion, cornet
ol Tulrty-elghih street and Fifth avenue, with
oiber real estate tip-town.
To bis daughter, Miss Jeannette Bennet t. he

The above are said to be the provisions ol
the will made by Mr. Bennett a few weeks be?
fore his wife salted for Europe. Il ls asserted
that he has neither altered it nor made another
will. The whole period of bis recent illue.-i
was used by him solely to prepare for his lust
Miss Jeannette Bennett ls now about eigh?
teen years ol age. Her father and brother
literally doted upon her. She was educated at
the Couvent of ihe 8acred Heait-and 80 anx?
ious was young Mr. Bennett to have her re?
main there, ihat when a governess whom he
had employed sent her to a different institu?
tion in nls absence, he discharged the tutor
and took Miss Jeannette back to ihe sisters.

HORACE GREELEY AS A PRESENT
Perhaps no circumstance could more fitting?
ly Illustrate Ihe difference between the char?
acter of Mr. Greeley and the present Incum?
bent of the White House than the following
story, the trutb of which is vouched lor by
Mr. John Sumner, a batter, doing buslnees In
Myrtle avenue, Brooklyn, and from whom ll
was received by a reporter:
In 1851, the hatters employed by Mr. Genio,
the Broadway hatter, struck for higher wages,
and, being refused, started an independent
hat shop of their own, on the co-operative
principle, while Mr. Genln employed a num?
ber of men called "scabs" bv tuc tradesmen to
dil their places. An article appeared In the
Tribune endorsing the cause of tbe men who
struck, and on the following day a committee
of men, of which Mr. Sumuer was chairman,
was appointed to walt on Mr. Greeley and
thank him for bis article,
Tne committee waited on him and perform?
ed their mission, and while doing so one of
tne members, unnoticed by Mr. Greeley, man?
aged to get hold of bis while hat and take ihe
size of lt, and then took their leave. A few
days afterward the same committee came
back willi a magnidceni hat, ihe production ol
tbe best workmen In the shop, and putting it
on tbe philosopher's head as he sat at his
desk, asked him bow be liked lt. Mr. Greeley
looked Ht himself In the glass, looked at tue hat,
and declared lt the lest, hal he had ever worn;
and now, said be, "Gentlemen, what's your
price lor this hal?" Tue ommiuee, said they
didn't intend to charge bim anything for the
hat, that lt. was Intended as a Blight token of |
their grail) tide for tils services?In t heir cause.
"I cau't accept the hat," said Mr. Greeley,
turtling lo his desk, "unless I pay for lt.
What I did I did lor principle, and not for j
presents. If you will iel me how much
money tue hat is worin, I would like to take
it, for I like ihe hui; but If you don't do that,
you can take lt away with you again." Cor?
nered thus, ihe committee had no option but
to name a price for tue bat, which they fixed
at eight dollars. Mr. Greeley bought tbe hat
at that price, with evident Fail-faction, and
wore it lor several tears afterwards.

we be represented."
MR. GREELEY ON WHITE AND BLACK
During his recent address lo the colored
people of Poughkeepsie, New York, Mr. Gree?
ley gave them some advice on the school ques?
tion. He said :
Ii I were a black man, I should not ask for j
a separate school, yell should still say ll tbe
whites choose to have separate scliuols I
should not object to it. I should only ask that
the schools for my children should oe made os
good, us efficient, as the schools provlied for
other men's children. Then, if the inujorliy
chOBe that the minority should be educaied In
separate schools, I would say, ' Gentlemen,
be it as you please; I have uo choice In the
matier." A gentleman or lady never discusses
the question, Was lt proper to refuse me an
invitation IQ my neighbor's parly ? He or she
accepts ihe lac:, und leis the reason take care
of Itself. Precisely so with regard to religious
fraternity or associations tor maintenance ol
divine worship. I would advise the colored
race never to make a distinction, and never
to refuse one. il the whites choose that the
blacks shall not be members on equal terms
of general congregations, I would accept ex?
clusive congregations, not as my choice, but us
tbe choice of ihe dominant race."

SPARTAN nu RU, June 3.
I perceive that you have no special reports
from a place of so much consequence In the
world as to require a standing army o? two
hundred or more of Uncle Grant's peta to keep
the boisterous mountaineers in subjection,
and, therefore, I thought a few Unes might
not be unacceptable, as they will come only
from an occasional and a voluntary corres?
To-day being our sales-day, and In the
midst ot a working season, there was but ?
small turnout irom the country, but what few
were' here represent their wheat crops as
good and that some are harvesting. Most of )
inn wheat ls low but with apparently heavy
heads. The long drought continues, and has
almost caused a perfect failure ol the oat crop.
Cotton appears to be In a thirsty condition,
weakly and rather scattering. Our gardens
are much Injured and will soon be of no value
unless an early rain falls.
Our politics, as far as appearances are seen
and words uttered, are of the Red, White and
Blue, or rather all White, as Mr. Greeley seems
tne one man for all. Upon all tongues there
ls a God gram! that he may be in the White
House in March next, with a white hat, white,j
coat, and, more than ali, a white and pure
A lew town lots sold at public outcry by the
county commissioners at folland fair prices.
One near the Courthouse, twenty-four by
ninety feet, with no outside privileges, sold
lor $1100. Three others In rear or the Court?
house, of smaller dimensions, from $330 to
$160, all unimproved. Properly ls advanclug,.
and we cannot wonder os the trowel of the
bricklayer and the hammer ol the carpenter
are hear? around us in every quarter, aud the
eye ia greeted with not only com louons rows of |
new and handsome buildings, but ol' old ones
made apparently new by the skill and taste of
master painters and boss wb lie washers.
