The Oswego wafiUi knww ' 'what this ucwrw ? ' ' The Great Triumph of American ?Journalism As Evidenced by the Herald. For the first time since its establishment the Heraj.d appears to-day in a Quintuple form, containing one hundred and twenty columns, of which seventy-eight are devoted to advertisements and forty-two to news and general intelligence. This event, unpre cedented in the history of journalism in this, and we believe in any other country, has a significance not confined tg the success of a single establishment, but embracing the in terests of the whole American press and bear ing upon the character of the American people aud upon the progress of the ^American nation. It shows what unexampled triuinilhs have already been achieved, and remain yet to bo won, by the vigor aud enterprise of jour nalism in this country. It proves that a people who enjoy free institutions and among whom education and the spread of intelligence are general, are the best calculated to appreciate the advantages and avail themselves of the power of an enlightened press. It bears evidenco to the rapid growth and astonishing prosperity of a nation only just recovering from the effects of a costly civil war, which its enemies and timid friends predicted and believed would end in the destruction of thu government. Thus, although the Hekalo reaps the direct profits of the enormous pa tronage which so densely crowds its columns and so largely swells its circulation to-day, its wonderhd success reflects credit upon the press, the people and the nation, and hence boeoines a fitting theme for general congratu lation. As we regarded the discovery of Livingstone as a triumph, not of the Herald alone, but of American journalism, so we look upon and claim the journalistic achievement of the Herald to-day in a business point of view as a credit and an encouragement to the press of the whole country. A people who advertise and read are a peo ple whose success In life is assured. Their experience, tact and intelligence teach them to appreciate independent, zeal and enterprise in journalism, and lead them to patronize such a newspaper as meets their ideas in these qualifications. We are just as certain that the Herald would not to-day issue its one hundred and twenty columns and publish an edition of nearly one hundred and fifty thousand, if it did not deserve pub lic confidence, as we are that sensible, practical men, would not buy brass for gold. Our advertisers come to us because they feel that by the general course and liberal manage ment of our journal we command a large cir cle of readers, and can thus 'give them a full equivalent for the money they invest in ad vertising. They know that custom has taught every person who has a want to supply to search the advertising columns of the IIkrald i for what they require; that our admirable, compact system of classifying and indexing our advertisements affords an easy refer ence, notwithstanding their enormous number, and they it vail themselves of the opportunity, useful and profitable to both parties, to bring the buyer and the seller directly together without the aid of agents and middlemen. Now we hold it to be within the reach of any independent, well conducted, enterprising journal to achieve success in a country that makes the Herald what it is to-iluy, provided it proves its just claims to these qualifications; hence it is that we regard the first appearance of our quintuple sheet as an encouragement to American journalism, and especially as an inceu- j tive to a truly independent press. The city ot New York, although the metropolis of the I Union and destined to be before long the ' metropolis of the world, doe* not monopolize the business of the whole country. Cities like Chicago, Cincinnati, Now Orleans, San Fran cisco, Philadelphia, Boston and others have their large interests, their commerce and their thousands of wauts just as New York lias, and the telegraph has made the local press a power all over the nation. There is no reason, therefore, why great journalistic success should not be achieved in those cities as well as in the metropolis, and we hold up the Herald of to-day as a beacon and an encour agement to the press of the whole nation as well as of our own city. Let public journals deserve patronage and the people will uot be slow to bestow it upon them as their due reward. Shortly before the adjournment of Con gress, during the discussion in the Senate 011 the' Congressional printing, a Senator made a forcible contrast l>etwccn the way the govern ment work was done and the labor expended on a daily journal, as evidenced by a copy of the Herald, which he held in his hand. If he had then produced the Herald, as it appears to-day. he might well have astonished the Senate by a statement ol' the labor expended on the paper within the past twenty-four hours. As we have said, the Herald contains to-day one hundred and twenty columns of matter, of which seventy eight are occupied with compact, solid adver tisements. There are in these one hundred and twenty columns about one million ems. To stereotype to-day's edition one hundred and forty-eight plates are cast, each plate weighing thirty-eight pounds, thus making a total weight ot five thousand six hundr< d and twenty-four pounds of metal used in stereotyping this single edition. The paper is printed on five Hoe rotary eight and ton cylinder presses and two lJtdlock perfect ing presses, being seven presses in all, which enable us to issue the edition at the rate of one thousand sheets per minute, taking two hours and a half to issue one hundred and fifty thousand papers. As this work in all done within the npace of twenty- four hours, the labor < aii be readily imagined even by those not familiar with the business. Day and night the endl? * round of work goes on. While men in ordinary occupations rest and sleep the ceaseless tusk of journalism knows no intermission. Click, click, click go the types ; into the htieks day and night, night and day, i until the one million ems have been set up ! and the matter proved and corrected. Day i and night,, night and day tie tele graph is at work bringing us intelli gence fr in all quarters of the globe* the corps of correspondents, reporters and editors are busy obtaining news, putting it into shr.pe or commenting upon the events ol the moment ; the proof readers are at their post pursuing their onerous and wearying task ; the stereotypers, j ressmeL and assist ants are awaiting the instant wLcn tUvit iuu to be IruunU um requisition ; for there cap bo no dolay, no pause, no rest, until the daily paper is off the press and ready to go into the hands of its renders. All this for each day's paper, and all to bo done within the space of twenty-four hours ! Day and night, night and day the press, the great engine of civilization, the educator of the people, the bulwark of our free institutions, laborH and toils for the people, and the appearanco of the Herald to-day is sufficient proof that the j>eo ple appreciate the work when it is well and faithlully done, and ure prepared to extend to it a commensurate reward. It is a general remark that the Herald is the business barometer of Xwk aud of the country at large. Its columns roadily show when the people are prosperous and when business is brisk. There is at present every indication of a thriving and active trade this Spring, .for tho nation was never richer than it is at th? present moment. There may be tightness in the money market, over building of railroads, over-speculation in stocks and an unsubstantial inflation in all fancy securities; but the mass of tho people are better off at this tune than they have been for years, and the Summer gayeties and enjoy ments will probably be indulged in more liberally this season than at any period since the commencement of the war. The very rise in gold shows the wealth of the nation, for it is mainly due to our enormous importation of luxuries and costly goods, which would not uome to us un less they found a ready market. Wo may, thorefore, point to the Hbkald's seventy-eight columns of advertisements as a subject of congratulation for the poople at large and as conveying an in spiriting and welcome sign to the whole business community. If they told only of the success of the Herald and of the vast patron age it enjoys we might not have felt at liberty to make them a theme of comment. But in asmuch as they indicate general prosperity, advancement and enterprise, we claim the right to direct public attention to them, and to comment as we have commented on the morals they poiut. Palm SuiiUuy? Holy Wtrk-From the Triumphal Kniry Into Jrru.ulcm to <lu- Crucifixion and the llrxurri-ction. The crowning eveuta iu the divine mission upon earth of the meek and lowly Jesus of Nazareth, including His .triumphal entry into Jerusalem, His teachings in the TAnple, His betrayal, His trial, sentence, crucifixion, burial and resurrection, are commemo rated by our Christian churches within the brief period known as Holy Week, beginning with Palm Sunday and cul minating in the rejoicings of Easter Sun- I day. This is Palm Sunday, held as the anni versary of the Saviour's last visit to the city <>? David, when, according to the record of St. Matthew, "a very groat multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut dowu branches from the trees and strewed them in the way. And the multitudes that went be fore and that followed cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David. Blessed is he that cometh in the, name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest." St. John, iu his description of the same event, says:? "On the next day much people that were come to the feast (the ? Jewish teast of the Passover), when they heard I that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, took I branches of palm trees and went forth to meet I hun and cried, Hosanna! Blessed is the King I ot Israel, that corncth in the name of the ! Lord!" Hence this Christian commemora- I tion of Palm Sunday. The observances of this day come down to us from an early period iu the history of the Church. Throughout the greater part of Europe the custom was established, in the ab sence of palm trees, of taking branches of other trees, such as the box, yew and willow, and, being blessed by the priests after mass, they were distributed among the people, who forthwith carried them in a joyous procession, in memory ot the Saviour's triumphant entry into the Holy City, after which they were usu ally burned, and the ashes laid aside to be sprinkled on the heads of the congregation on ' the ensuing Wednesday, with the priest's blessing. In Rome aud throughout Southern i Italy, in Southern Spain and in the Spanish 1 republics of Mexico, Central and South America, and in Brazil and throughout the West India Islands, the palm itself is, with various peculiar devotions, sacredly dis tinguished in this day's observances of the Roman Catholic Church. Iu Brazil, for ex- I ample, where nearly all the Church festivals I are commemorated as public holidays, more or less. Holy Week is especially attractive ! to the stranger from the remarkable forms and manifestations which are embraced in the celebration of Palm Sunday; of the treachery (Spy Wednesday) and hanging of ?Judas; ot Maundy Thursday, on which day the pious followers of the Redeemer endeavor to imitate His humility, as illustrated in His washing of the feet of His disciples; of Good Friday; ot Holy Saturday, and of Easter Sun day. It may be said, too, that in these dra- 1 matic Church observances of South America i there is something too much of fantastical 1 display and simple superstition ; but who would deny to those simple people their trusting faith in the usages of their Church until assured that He could give them some- i thing better V It was one of the greatest idea* of the great Napoleon that above all other ' things to be respected ia the religion of a people. In Great Britain, the United States, and in other countries where the people havo be come divided among many churches, we find the observances and the festivals even of the Catholic Church more or less modified from the general pressure of the material forces of our modern civilization ; though inNew York in London and in liio Janeiro the faith of the Catholic, in all essentials, is still the same. Wo find, too, that whilo iu New York, as else where, the Catholic Church is still distin guished above ail others in its music, pictures, flowers, decorations, vestments and imposing ceremonials, the Protestant Episcopal Church is gradually enlarging it? recognition of ob jects and forms and ceremonies which appeal to the eye, the ear and the imagination as cal culate 1 to soften and refine the heart of the spectator in the cause of religion. And why not, since the meek and lowly Teacher from Nazareth passed from His triumphal pro cession into the splendid temple of the Jews, where, after purging it of the money changers, lw UyUKSttllk* "ftUtlthn ^T' "li'L (he lame camo to liim and ho healed them?" In this day's observances of our city churches, and of all the churches of the Christian world, informed of the late awful destruction of hu man life on the rock-bound coast of Nova Scotia, and in view of other calamities result ing from the wickedness of mon, and against the flood of vice, demoralization and corrup tion which threatens the shipwreck of Church and State, let us hope tliat the beginning of this Holy Week will be marked as tho begin ning of a new epoch in the cause of their Di vine Master. Is the cause of Christianity ad vancing? Yes, among the Hindoos, the Chi nese, the Fiji Islanders and in the kingdom of Dahomey. The Crescent is waning even oil that sacred soil ? Over whose acre* trod those Messed feet Which eighteen hundred yearsngo were uailed For our advantage on tho tjitter cross. We, indeed, adhere to our opinion frequently heretofore advanced, that Christianity, with the potential forces of modern science which it commands, is destined to cover tho earth "us tho waters covor the great deep. " But looking iminediitely around us we have little cause lor vaiu boasting over the triumphs or progress of modern Christianity. While we are converting tho hoathen in tho South Sea Islands we arc forgetting the heathen at our own doors. John Randolph, when in Con gress, was once startled by the reading of a bill for the rolief of tho Greeks, when, spring ing to his feet, he ? exclaimed, "The Greeks, Mr. Speaker, tho Greeks ! We have them hero, sir, and what are you doing for them?" Looking eastward from the heights of Ho bokon on a clear morning New York appears, more than Brooklyn, a city of churches. Walking down Fifth avenue on a bright April Sunday afternoon the stranger would pronounce our goodly metropolis a city of saints and angels in broadcloth, silks and satins ; but a look in tho Tombs and a glance at our criminal calendar will dispel this pleasing delusion. How far are our Christian churches responsible for this criminal caleudar of our city and for this reign of demoralization, corruption, extrava gance and general wickedness throughout the land? How fur have our Christian teachers failed in their duties in this connection? These are matters for their serious considera tion this blessed day of the Saviour's popular welcome to Jerusalem. The people welcomed Him as their prophet and their teacher, bo cause lie placed Himself, not above them, but among them, and adapted His divine instruc tions t > the simplest hearer. How far shall we trace His example in this day's sermons on Fifth avenue ? The truth is that our Christian churches are dozing and dreaming while the wicked world around them is wide awake and fear fully active. Palm Sunday is a good day for a new departure by our preachers and teachers of the Gospel, and for u new resolution and rem wed zeal and activity, extending beyond Fifth avenue to the highways and byways, and from tho elect to the poor sheep that are astray. Oh! ye Christian teachers, be ex horted to devote this day as the beginning ot an enlarged humility, charity and activity in the cause ot Christ, or all your fiue sermons to your drowsy congregations will be but ' 'as the sounding brass and the tinkling eymbaL" Tim Clerical Hero of the Aliunde. When horrors such as the wreck of the At lantic come before us we can at times distin guish the highest attributes of manhood rising amid the gloom ol death to make known the kinship of man to our ideals of the divine. The rock that shivers the stately ship, the vessel that breaks upon the rock, the water that swallows, the hurricane that tosses the waters are things material and insensible. Mau alone amid all "the horrid war of winds and waters raging" can stand out from the infernal surroundings with a gleam of the god like on his brow. Sudden disasters, like revo lutions, produce their heroes from unexpected sources. They are tossed up by the waves, as it were, and the world can admire, although it may not understand. That one of the heroes of the wreck of the Atlantic should prove to be an Episcopal clergyman, Mr. Ancient, ought not astonish any one ; but because of the very fitness of the niau's prolessiou for his self-abnegation, his courage in a good cause, his devotion to the Master's doctrine of charity, many will find cause for wonder. That in the most gallant manner he risked his life a dozen times to save the lives of others ; that he was first in the boat to rescue the List man from his slow agony in the frozen rig ging, when men used to the terrors of the deep shrunk buck from the task, places him in the front rank of those rare heroes that the world ciui praise and admire without a single detracting breath. He was a clergyman, men may say, and self-sacrifice is the great rule under which he had registered his life ; His Mister, the Great Shepherd, not only risked but gave up His life for His flock. It would follow naturally from this that his heroism arose only trom a sensitive appreciation of his I duty to God, to himself and to his fellow man. The world, however, will rightly rate his heroism as something higher than mere bounden duty. Sorrowfully we have been made to feel that those from whom most was to be expected have often fallen shortest in performance. The Teacher preached nis greatest sermons from Gethsemane and Cal vary. The first showed how deeply He felt the bitterness of the cup before Him ; the second how sublimely He drained it to the dregs. But teachers in His name are little looked to to-day for either the sensitiveness or the sacrifice. Vain show, soft pillows without a thorn, and softer, weaker ways have become so much the rule that a live, practical fol lower of Christ comes even trom the ranks of the ministry as a surprise. The Rev. Air. Ancient has merited this high praise, and we turn with hearty relief to his noble con duct tit the wreck trom contemplating in sorrow and anger the effeminate lives and the lisping prayers of so many of his clerical brethren. The Uooilrlch .Mynlery. Light slowly appears in the puzzlo of Charles Goodrich's deuth. Testimony before the Coroner yesterday shows such scones in the Degraw street den ot shame as must have prepared those who were cognizant -of them for any tragical and fatal end to a. career of surprising depravity. To speak no ill of tho dead is a rule from which it is nover pleasing to deviate ; but no one can view the character of Goodrich, as displayed by tho inquest, rence. Loop laboriously ho had planted the seed, in duplicity jupd sneaking guilt, of which his dead l>ody, found jy* ? gloomy basement by a confiding brother^ waJ the natural har vest.* A disgraceful Intimacy with an aban doned and violent woman Md brought the hypocrite into a situation where hitf crime was likely to be exposed to those swhose good opinion ho dosired to retain. Tho hiqah method ho took to broak with her produced a storm of passion and threats of terrible vi*n geanco. She may have been the slayer of her partner in depravity, or some other of his many intrigues may have brought about the i bloody catastrophe. No ono now wonders at his end. Public interest is simply concerned in proving procisoly who fired the balls which put a period to his life. Brooklyn's detect ives arc baffled by a common woman, whose namo and hiding place must bo known to many, and who, probably, has no means for flight. Will they rest under ihe imputation of inability to produce one who is known to have been familiar with the house, and who, from tho evidence, appears fully capable of seeking revenge by the most desperate moans? The Crime of the Atlantic Wreck. As the full particulars of the wreck of the Whito Star steamship aro brought to light our strongest opinions of the criminality of tho loss and all that led to it aro confirmed. Our first opinion that to tho inhuman rapacity of those who direct the line the terrible catastro phe was due is sustained. We do not in this oxonerate Captain Williams in the slightest degree. He actually lost the ship; but the grasping of those who crowded the ship with passengers while lessening her fuel is in the highest degree culpable. We shall strike first at these offenders, in whose hands yet lies the power to send ships of the White Star line to sea so parsimoniously supplied that the lives of thousands will be imperilled to save a few pitiful shekels for the Shylock owners. We concluded in our first editoriid on the ship wreck that tho provisions were doubtless sup plied on as miserly a scale as the coal, and aiuong the first of Captain Williams' apologies for turning his ship's head to Halifax is that on the 31st March, when only eleven days out, "the chief steward also reported the stores short ; fresh provisions enough for the sa loon for two days and but salt for the steerage lor two days, when all but bread and rice would be nid. ' ' When only eight days out the coal was reported short. On the 31st there were but one hundred and twenty-seven tons left, with four hundred and sixty miles of heaving ' sea between the Atlantic and Sandy llook. What can be said of tbeso things ? Indignation will not express in the faintest degree the feeling that will rise iu the community to denounce such unparalleled avarice. Eleven days out, in a season when a passage o t from fourteen to twenty days may be expected, and fuel and provisions left for only two days ! We are hor rified when we think of the carelessness, neg ligence nnd incompetenee that were combined to bring about the disaster on Meagher's Rock ; but we are terrified to think that the parsi mony which directed the outfit of this vessel may agafu endanger thousauds of lives. An accident to the screw in mid-ocean might, in the starvation that would ensue, have made the Atlantic a tloating charnel bouse, whose lingering honors we cannot uttempt to describe, were she even able under sail to weather the storm. The sudden swoop of death as the ship lay heeling over iu the l'reez- j ing waters off Cape Prospect were better a 1 hundred times than the death which would come by degrees through hunger to the thou sand passengers of the ship in mid-ocean. No number of successful trips made under similar circumstances, no amount of profit snatched through such affrighting risks, would make | the possibility of such an accident a whit the less. It is a diabolical game with death, "where death must win" sooner or later, and we wish the public to be under no misappre- \ hension as to those who play it and who profit i by it. When Captain Williams intro- j duced the shortness of coal and the I paucity of provisions as reasons deter mining him to run to Halifax he was, perhaps, unconscious that he was fixing a chain of guilt about the necks of those who, with him self, were responsible for the miserably crimi nal shortcomings in the outfit of the over- j crowded ship. The owners telegraph to their j agent here that the diversion to Halifax is "incomprehensible" to them. Were they so | blinded by the success of previous parsimony I that failure in any shape to win on the dread- I ful hazard was "incomprehensible?" The j long, narrow ship beating her bows in against I the rocks will tell them that the laws of God and man cannot be set at naught. They have lost this time, and the execration of mankind will tell them how much. From this criminal meanness, the most des picable in a long roll of such things, we can turn for a moment to its awful effects. Pity and compassion have wept all that 1 humanity can weep over the forsaken women 1 and abandoned little darlings left by strong , men to die amid the icy breakers. Sympathy j and charity are doing for the living all that ? can now be done. Even here, however, ac- j ensation against the agents is heard. On the 1 chief actor in the tragedy all eyes are j turned. The world now knows that he was j out of his reckoning. He had never been j on that iron-bound coast before. Except I the third officer neither Captain nor mates 1 had been in Halifax. He took no soundings, I nor did he order ahy, "because the night was clear." He was on deck at tweuty minutes ; past twelve, and left orders to be awakened at j three. The ship was rnuning at twelve knots j an hour towards dast ruction, nnd no lookout I soems to have been kept. Were all the watch : asleep? Captain Williams says: ? "From the state of the weather when I came ! 011 deck, I think the white snow line of the shore would l>e visible at a distance of from two to three miles." There can be no doubt of this; but, says the chief officer, "no | sort of warning was given" until the shock of j the impact, on the rocks roused everybody to the situation. The second officer perished, and ho cannot answer hero for his crime. The fourth officer, whoso turu of duty it also was, must tell us why no sound of thundering surf was heard, no white lii^ of breakers, no white suow line of the shore was seen before striking. As tho ship heeled over wo learu from a passenger that the boiler exploded. At every step the infamy of the wreck bocomes more apparent , llau ftwujUw UuUio.

Whatever rush of remorse may ^'hoke the Captain'* utterance in telling his j uddering Htory vra cannot offer him any sentiroWtol pity- On owners, agents, captain, officers*?ftu^ crow a weight of guilt is pressing which .'?t would be injustice to the public to conceal.
