The discontinuance of the Loudon
Star, and .the transfer of its interests to
the London1 Daily News, ?re tho subject
o? considerable comment, both by the
English and American press. Instating
tho reasons for their retirement from the
field of journalism, the proprietors say
that their objects in establishing their
paper fb'r.i teen years ago were two-fold
the first being the advocacy and propaga?
tion of principles whioh wero then re?
garded as extreme in their liberalism,
and the second the establishment of the
feasibility of ?applying tho public with a
good newspaper for a penny. It is
claimed that their old principles aro now
the accepted and organic articles of tho
liberal party, and that, under these cir?
cumstances, there is no sufficient neces?
sity for dividing the newspaper strength
of that party, and hence the Star is
merged in the News. Tho Tory papers,
on the contrary, assert that the Star has
accomplished its mission in ono sense,
bot it is because the ideas it was founded
to spread have been abandoned by its
It is suggested that thcro is a certain
amount of truth in both statements, the
moderato liberals and the radicals having
now effected a compromise, and there is
no ocension for Gladstone and Bright to
have more than ono organ between
them: The London correspondent, how?
ever, who advances this idea, says (wo
suspect truly) that the paper was dis?
continued because it did cot pay, and it
did hot pay because it was established
and run ns a'personal organ, or, at best,
as the organ of a clique. Tho same
writer adds that there are only three
morning dailies in London which are
supposed to be paying at the present
timo-the' Times, the Telegraph and the
Morning'Advertiser. What truth there
is in this, we do not know, nor can we
imagine that the writer has certain means
of information. There were five leading
daily journals in London io the latter
part of'the eighteenth century, when
London 'was'a village compared to its
presen t dimensions. Thc papers referred
tO~werectke Morning Chronicle, founded
in"7176.fr'the' Morning Post, 1772; the
Morning-Herald, 1781; tho Times, 1785;
and the Morning Advertiser, 1794. Most
of .these, if not all, still survive, arguing
The'Lone . vh Tiptoes, which subsequent?
ly eclipsed all English journals, origi?
nally appeared under tho mime of the
"Daily Universal Register." John Wal?
ter, of Printing House sqnare, by whom
it was first printed and published, added
the name of "Times" to bis journal in
the issue1 of January 1, 1788. At the
' beginning of the present century n thou?
sand copies a day was the extent of its
circulation, while that of some of its
neighbors was nearly four thousand.
The subsequent remarkable success of
the Times bas been ascribed to a freedom
from party ties, to its efficient system of
obtaining and transmitting the earliest
news, to its unceasing care in improving
its mechanical resources and securing the
beat available talent, and chiefly to the
application of steam power to its print?
ing press in 1814.
It is now about fifty-five years since it
availed itself of steam, its readers being
informed on the morning of November
29, 1814, that "the journal of this day
presenta to the public the practical re?
sult of the greatest improvement con?
nected with printing since the discovery
of the art itself." Besides being the
leading organ of pnblio opinion in Eng?
land, tbe Times is tho chief medium of
advertisements. Without, however, en?
tire journalistic independence, it is
doubtful whether the Times could have
retained, in the midst of so many politi?
cal and Social changes, its undisputed
supremacy among Eoglish newspapers.
Men in these days look to tho press
chiefly for facts and reliable information,
and consider themselves, for the most
part, capable of forming their own con?
clusions; though the wiser and bettor
disposed they are the more ready are
they to consider the views and take coun?
sel of respectable, conscientious, and
independent journalism.-Ballimore Sun.
The Recorder of Bail), Mr. Saunders,
ia a paper read before tho British Social
?oience Association, alluded to the ano?
maly that, with the enormous national
resources of Great Britain-her savings
exceeding a hnndred raillions a year
there should be no lesa than 70,000 per?
sons annually apprehended for offences
connected with property, and that 1,000,
000 persons should be in receipt of pu
rish relief. The paper showed that
crimes were more and more being con?
fined to tho ignorant classes. lu tho
year 1856, eighty-six per cent, of the
criminals could neither read nor write,
or could read or write ouly imperfectly,
while io the year 18G8 this per cen togo
bad increased to ninety-six. Looking at
the educated portion of the criminals,
the percentage who could read and write
weU was, in 1856, h% per cent. ; that per
oentage, in 1808, had dwiudled down to

poned the other day by a telegraph from
