■“ Bissixe A JiEWSPAPER. How few people seem to know wliat it costs to run a newspaper. This is an ejacu lation often heard in newspaper counting rooms after the departure of somebody who has tried to confiscate a paper, or get in a puff of somebody on the strength ol old friendship or some imaginary reason equally as strong. Hv some unaccounta ble misapprehension of facts, there is a large class of people iu the world who think that it costs little or nothing to run a newspaper, and that if they buy a copy from a newsboy, when too far from the office to come and begone, they are regu lar patrons, and entitled to unlimited tut ors. Men call every day at newspaper offices to get a copy of the daily paper, just from press, for nothing, who would never dream of begging a pocket hand kerchief Irom a drv goods store, an apple from a fruit stand, or a piece of candy from a confectioner, even upon tin* plea of an old acquaintance or having bought something once before. One paper is not much, but a hundred a day amounts to something in the course of time. But this is a small drain compared with tho free advertising a newspaper is expected to do. Some men who have paid two dollars at an early period in life for an ad vertisment worth four or five, appear to think they are stockholders in the estab lishment for eternity. They demand the publication of all marriage and funeral notices, obituaries, and family episodes for the next torty years gratis. .Speak of pay and tiiey grovv indignant. “Don't I patronize your paper?” “Yes; but you receive the worth of vour money for what yon paid." “But," says the patron, “it will not cost you anything to put this in," which is just as ridiculous as to ask a man ■to grind your ax on his grindstone, and graciously tell him that it won't cost him a cent. It takes money to run a news paper. as well as any other business, and no paper will succeed financially that car ries a dead-head system. Any mention of the people's affairs that they are anxious to see iu print is worth paying for, and when printed is generally as any other in vestment of the same amount. The newspaper business is very exact ing on all connected with it, and the pay is comparatively small: the proprietors risk more money for smaller profits, and the editors and reporters and printers work harder and cheaper than the same number of men in any other profession requiring the given amount of intelligence and training and drudgery. The life has its charms and its pleasant associations, scarcely known by the outside world; but it has its earnest work and anxieties and hours of exhaustion, which likewise, are not known to those who think the busi ness all fun. The idea that newspaperdom is a charmed circle where the favored members live a life of ease and free from care, and go to the circus at night on a free ticket and to the springs on a free pass in the summer, is an idea which we desire to explode practically and theor etically. Business is business, and the journal that succeeds is the one that is run on a square business footing, the same as banking or building bridges, keeping hotel or running a livery stable—Memphis Ava lanche.

NEW EASTERN DEPOT FOR T1IK WORLD RF.NOWNKD SEWING MACHINES. Opposite the* Post Office, AUGUSTA, - - MAINE. These Machines, by their simplicity, durability, and the great ran v of work they execute, have gained a reputation truly enviable. 'IT 10 famed- success of Hie LINGER M \M'F Vl’TFR i\(. t iimhm has stimulated many otlier ronipan- ! jCf, to pul forth all their energies ami talcuts to produced -e\\ ing niaehme that would eelip.-c or equal the linger, hut in every ea-e they ha\e.*ig-j idiIIn tailed. as i- plainly shown b\ the fact. that of all tbe travelling agent—“runners or drummer?*” I _<ii'other companies, none have the assurance to • I i laitn more than an equality w ith the >inger, even j iqion any special class of work. T here are many sewing machines, now offered to : •the public, that have their good points, and are of | much assistance to the housewife and the industri- 1 oils seamstress. Parties purchasing n sew iug ma chine of «»»// sort, find the improvement on the old fa-hioiied way of sewing by band so great and pleasing, that they are naturally, but erroneously, led to believe thai they have the be.-1, until the spell is broken by the introduction of Me Siiitjtr of isTU I into a neighbor's family. w Inch is sure, by tin* in creased rapidity and ca.-e w itli w liich it does ever} kind of plain or fancy -ew itig, to aw a ken them to a positive, although it inav b« silent acknowledge- 1 ; ment ot the painiul truth that there are very many varieties of work that are easily executed upon the >inuer. but that they mu-t either be contend to do w it’hout. or exchange, at a heavy pecuniary sacri fice. their curved-neoflled, frail-powered, imrelia ble-teiisioiied, low-speeded or ravei-stitchcd ilia* chine fora Sinyrr A* ir ft i mil if Murhiiw.

While otlier inno cent local agents ignorantk represent that the ma chine sold by them is capable of doing every varie ty of work, r'/wd to flit Si.it/er, and often do they I thus unconsciously -wimlle eii-tomers who cannot afford t- squander their substance upon gilded ! follies and worthless rattle-traps.

They never buy editorial notices, or expend funds in “log-rolling” at Fairs to gain medals or premium*.
