STATISTICS OP AMERICAN JOUR
The 'American Newspaper Directory for
1871," just issued by Messrs. George P. Row
ell &. Co., proprietors of the American Ad
vertising Agency of New York city, contains
certain tables of statistics whi«h have been
compiled with care, and can he relied upon
as substantially correct. They cover a field
of research which no statistician has before
touched upon, and furnish food for reflection
and wonderment. The following are a few
of the many lacts which a study of these
The whole number of periodicals issued
in the United States is 5983. with 73 to be
added for the Territories, and 353 are printed
in the Dominion of Canada, and 29 in the
British Colonies, making a grand total of
f>438. of which 637 are daily, 118 tri-weekly,
129 semi-weekly, 4642 weekly, 21 bi-weekly,
100 semi-monthly, 715 monthly, 14 bi
monthly, and 62 are issued quarterly. New
York has the largest number of publica
tions, 894, of which 371 are printed in New
York city, and Nevada has the smallest
number issued in any State—only 15.
Nevada has more daily than weekly papers,
and is unique in this respect, every other
State having from three to twelve times as
many weeklies as dailies. Tri-weekly papers
are more common in the South than semi
weeklies, while in the Northern States the
facts are reversed.
The largest number ot daily papers pub
lished in any State is 89, in New York.
Pennsylvania is second, with 61. Next
comes Illinois, with 38, and California has
34, being the fourth on the list. DelawaTe
and Florida have each one daily paper.
Kansas has as many as Vermont, West
Virginia, Mississippi and Arkansas com
bined. Nebraska and Nevada have each
more dailies than either Oregon, Rhode
Island, South Carolina, Vermont, West
Virginia, Arkansas, Delaware) Florida,
Maine, or Mississippi.
Of the 73 publications issued regulaily in
the territories 13 are daily and 50 weekly, 3
tri-weekly, 4 semi-weekly, 1 appears
monthly, 1 semi-monthly, and 1 bi-weekly.
The papers of New Y'ork State have the
largest circulation, averaging 7411 each is
sue. Massachusetts is second, with 5709
average: then comes the District of Colum
bia with 4323. Nevada has the smallest
average circulation, only 516, while Florida
averages 616, Arkansas 650, Texas 701, and
Mississippi 753. The average circulation of
all daily papers published is 2717, of the
weeklies 1598, and of the monthlies 4081,
The average edition of all the papers printed
is 1842, which, multiplied by 6438, the entire
number of publications, gives 11,858,796 as
the number of copies in which an advertise
ment would appear if inserted once in all.
The same advertisement, if continued one
year, would be printed the enormous num
ber of 1,499,922,219 times. The total num
ber of publications printed in an entire year
in North Carolina will supply only four
copies to each inhabitant, equivalent to one
paper to every soul once in three months.
Mississippi, Florida and Arkansas do
but little better, furnishing five copies
per year. Alabama, Minnesota. South Caro
lina. Texas and West Virginia all print less
than enough to give each inhabitant a paper
once in five weeks, while California gives
eighty-two copies "per year, exceeding
every other State except New York, which
prints one hundred and thirteen copies per
year for every soul within its borders. As
New Y'ork papers circulate everywhere,
while those of California do not go much
out of the State, it is evident that the
papers issued there have a better local sup
port than any other State of the American
In the District of Columbia we find that
one newspaper is published for every three
square miles ot territory. Massachusetts
has one to thirty square miles, and Rhode
Island one to fifty; then comes New Y'ork
with one to fifty-seven: Connecticut has one
to sixty, New Jersey one to sixty-three,
Texas one to two thousand three hundred
and forty-five, Florida one to two thousand
six hundred and ninety-three, while in the
territories one newspaper spreads its cir
culation over no less than fourteen thou
sand four hundred and sixty-five square
There are five hundred and forty-eight
papers in the United States which print
more than five thousand copies each issue,
and eleven which print more than one hun
dred thousand. The New York Weekly has
the largest circulation given : among the
political mediums the New Y'ork weekly
Tribune takes the lead, and, among the
agricultural weeklies, Moore's Rural Neve
Yorker stands first. The New Y'ork Inde
pendent is the largest paper and has the
largest circulation of any religious paper.
Nearly one thousand papers are printed on
the auxiliary plan—that is, on sheets pur
chased from New Y'ork. Chicago and other
centres, with one side already printed.
This number has more than doubled within
one year. More than one thousand new
newspapers have been established since the
first of March, 1870, and the number of new
ones announced since January 1, 1871, has
averaged nearly four per day. The num
ber of suspensions is about one-fourth as
large as that of the new issues announced.
Messrs. George P. Rowell Ac Co. assert that
the number of newspapers issued has fully
doubled within six years.
In looking over the publications devoted
to specialties (or class publications), we find
the religious largely predominate over any
other class, which shows the interest the
public press takes in the moral and religious
welfare of the country. There are in the
United States 283 publications advocating
evangelical or sectarian ideas, with twenty
two in the dominion of Canada, with none
either in the territories or colonies. Of this
number New Y'ork city has forty-four, Phil
adelphia twenty-three, Boston twenty-one,
while Florida, Kansas, Nevada and New
Jersey-are entirely unrepresented.
The farmers, horticulturists and stock
raisers have their interests represented by
an agrioltural press numbering no less than
106 publications, many of which are gotten
up at great expense, and are very exten
The medical profession enlightens its
members through the columns of seventy
two publications, of which five are week
lies, fifty monthlies, three semi-monthlies,
three bi-monthlies and eleven quarterlies.
Nearly if not all the schools of medicine
hare thejr representative organ, -which cir
culate* among its admirers and is criticised
severely by its contemporaries whose views
differ from it about the "healing of the na
tions," while there are a number that fur
nish intelligence of interest to all medical
men, as well as the general reader, without
taking sides for or against any particular
school of medicine.
Most of the colleges and many of the
State boards of education have their repre
sentative orgari, besides several publica
tions that treat educational matters in a
general way. Of this class we have eighty
four in the United States and six in the Do
minion of Canada. They are mostly month
lies, with an occasional weekly, bi-weekly
The large cities have their commercial
papers, which are nearly all issued weekly.

Wc learn that several prominent citizens
of large means, among others Messrs. Car
riere, Rochereau. Sloeomb and Smith, called
yesterday on the Mayor, and proffered
whatever security might be necessary to
take out an appeal in the case of Mrs. Myra
Clark Gaines vs. the city of New Orleans,
in which case judgment was rendered
against the city for over one hundred and
twenty-five thousand dollars.
An old lady gives this as her idea of a
great man: "One who is keerful of his
clothes, don't drink spirits, kin read the
Bible without spelling the words, and eat
a cold dinner on wash day without
but a very few years back they could not
have been made self-supporting.
The number of papers published in other
than the English language is growing
rapidly, owing to the immense immigration
from foreign countries, especially Germany,
France, 8candinavia and Italy.
The publications printed in the German
language in the United States number 341,
and the Dominion of Canada 5, and are
over three times as many as the sum of all
the other publications in foreign languages
The publications in the French language
are confined principally to Louisiana and
the province of Quebec, where the language
is in common use.
The Scandinavian publications number
eighteen, and are confined entirely to the
West and Northwest (with a single excep
tion, that of a daily, semi-weekly and
weekly in New York city), the immigrants
from Denmark, Norway and Sweden hav
ing principally settled there. Many of the
thriving Western towns have been almost
entirely built up by these industrious and
frugal people, who use their native tongue
universally, and frequently never learn the
In the Spanish language there are but 7,
Hollandish 6, Italian 4, Welsh 3, Bohemian
2, Portuguese 1, Cherokee 1, none of which
have a very wide circulation or influence)
owing to the reason that the population
speaking these languages is comparatively
limited and widely scattered.
Columbus, Ohio, has a decided sensation.
The elements are: The theft of a large
amount of jewelry from a banker's house
by the lover of a servant girl in the family;
his flight to Pittsburg, Pennsylvania; his
arrest, confession and return; the recovery
of the jewelry; his release for some mys
terious reason (and this is the point of the
sensation), and the payment of $500 reward
to the detectives.
On the streets of Norfolk, Virginia, last
Sunday week, a little girl six or seven years
old was seen leading her drunken rather
homeward. Resisting the efforts of all
other persons to take him home, he was per
fectly passive in the hands of his child.
After getting her father to the steps the lit
threw her arms around his neck
and kissed him. All who witnessed the
scene and the notion were affected to tears.

The Department of Agriculture has re
ceived returns from nearly 300 counties
representing the most productive districts
of each of the cotton States and showing
the comparative average and the condition
of the crop in the first week of June.
A diminution in the area planted in cot
ton appears in every State except Florida.
The most careful analysis of the returns
with due regard in making averages to the
extent of the cotton production in the re
spective counties, gives the following per
centage of reduction in comparison with
Virginia 30 per cent. North Carolina 14,
South Carolina 13, Georgia 12, Alabama 13,
Mississippi 15, Louisiana 8, Texas 14, Ar
kansas 16, Tennessee 12.
These State averages reduced to a gen
eral average the assumed acreage of the re
spective States being an element in the
calculation, will place the reduction of the
cotton of 1871, as compared with that of
1870, between fourteen and fifteen per cent,
equivalent to nearly a million and a third
of acres. This would leave between seven
and a half and eight million of acres as the
The average yield lias not in former
years exceeded 150 pounds per acre; that
for 1870 was more than 200 pounds. The
condition of the growing plant is below an
average in nearly every State. The spring
has been unusually wet and cold, retarding
the growth and causing many of the plants
to turn yellow and die, and obstructing the
cultivation to a large extent. Replanting
has refilled the vacant spaces of imperfect
stands. The weather has recently been
more favorable, and it is not impossible tbat
an average condition may be attained by
the commencement of the packing season.
The condition of cotton in July, 1869, a
year favored with an abundant yield, was
only a little better than the showing for
June of the present year, while the prospect
is slightly improving, but there is nothing
in it of a decisive character. The per cent
age below an average condition is respect
ively as follows in the several States: North
Carolina ten per cent, South Carolina eight,
