The following is the life-long experience !
of Mr. N. Wilms, an old voturan of tlio
press; ami we submit it with the simple
remark, llint it is not an "o'or true tale" :
" My long experience as publisher and 1
Editor, has convinced mo that it is a posi-.
tion of great responsibility?that it 1b impossible
to pleHRe everybody-that it is best
to conduct in such a way as to have a Conscience
void of offence towards God and
man?that industry, economy, perseverance,
and self-reliance are the surest helpers?that,
like woman's work, it is never
(lone, every hour has its appropriate work; |
and that it requires a strong mind in a !
strong body, in order to livo long in such i
treadmill work. Editors should he kind
and courteous towards each other, avoiding
personalities and abuse, treat each other as
brethren, and allowing others the same
rights whloh they claim for themselves.?
Every publication influences thousands of
minds, and that inHuunce should be salutarv.
for time and eteinuv.

1 ho improvements in printing within seventy
years have been great. The screw
press and tho sheep akin bails are super*^ded
by tho power press and the roller; but
the type sotting is still done by human
hands, and editorials must still be conceived '
by human heads. May those hands and
heads, now so usefully and honorably employed,
be amply remunerated by a consciousness
of doing good, and a well-filled
purse, before old ago incapacitates them
for enjoyment, and the publio forgot their
unwearied servitor*?ami then, may the
'lest' ubovo bo tho reward of all your toil."
