The fo!lowing remarks upon newspaper wii
ting are taken frc»n» ap’eusait article on **Pen
dennis and the l/terarv Prufe-smn." m the last
number of ihe North British lit*vi‘*w.
Now (iohlsm th suvs, that if.ere are many
dull fellows who wide hook-*, vviu-ivas I Hack
era) says, that there are mans c ever feiiows
who don’t. For our own paits. ue can ^ee
nothing worth quarrelling afamt m one U.c urn
or the other, Both as we have stated them, are
undeniably true; hut we have not tquul coi fi
dence in the truth of the assett.on that thou
sands of these clever fellows can write articles,
review book**, &c.. if they would. 1 hey may
he very clever fellows—cleverer than those who
write articles, for anything we know to the
contrary; hut we strenuously protest against
the assumption that they can all write articles
if they would. Lord f.yndhnrst once said, at
a public dinner, with reference to the number
less marvels of the Press, that it might seem a
very easy thing to write a leading aiticle. hut
that he would recommend any one with strong
convictions on that point, o ily to try. We con
fidently appeal to the experience of all the con
ductorsof the leading journal* of <Jreat Britain
—from the quartetly reviews to *he daily jout
nals, convinced that they will all tell the same
unvarying ta’e of the utter incoinpetency of
thousands of very clever people to write articles,
review hook*4. &e. 1 hey Will a?i have the
same experiences to relate of the marvellous
failures of men of genius and learning - the
crude cumbrous state in which they have "ent
their so-called article* for publication—the
labor it has taken to mould their fine thoughts
a;ul valuable erudition into comely shape—the
utter imposibility o ten ot doing it at all. As
Mr. Carlyle has written ot the needle-women
of England, it is the saddest th;ng of al!. that
there should he spa'npstresres iew or none, but
‘•botchers'* in such abundance, capable only ot
‘ adistracted hope of it—puckering and Notching
—not sewing—only a laliac otis hope of it—a
fond imagination of the mind;" so of literary
labor; is it the saddest thing of all. that there
should be so many botchers in the world, aim so
lew skilled article-writers—so little article-wri
ting, and so much -distracted puckering and
Notching." I here tnay be nothing in this ar
ticle-writing, when once we know how to do
it. as there is nothing in balancing a ladder on
one's chin, or jump ng through a hoop, or swal
lowing a sword. All we stv is, if people think
it easy, let them try. and abide by the resuit.—
The amateur articles of very clever people are
generally what an amateur effort at coat-mak
ing would be. ft may seem a very easy thing
to make a coat; but very expert craftsmen—
craftsmen that can pioduce more difficult and
elaborate pieces of workmanship, fail utterly
when they come to a coat. The only iea>on
why they cannot make a coat is that they are
not tailors. Now there aiemany veryableand
learned men, who compass greater efforts of hu
man intellect than the production of a new spa
per article, but who cannot write a newspaper,
article, at all, because they are not new-paper
writers or criticise a book with decent effect,
because they are not critics. Article-writing
comes “by art, not chance." Tire efforts ol
chance writers, if they be men of genius an;
learning, are things to break one's heart over.
It is not enough to think and to know. It
requires the faculty of utterance, and apeculi
ai kind c>t utterance, ('ertainthings are to be
said in a certain manner, and yotr amateur arti
cle- writer is sure to say them in any manner but
the right. Perhaps of all styles of wr ting there
is none m which excellence n- so rarely attain
ed as that of newspaper-w iiting. A readable
leading article may not he a work of the lofti
est order, or deman I for its execution tin* high
est attributes of genius; but. whatever it may
be. the power of accomplishing it with success
is not shared by ‘-thousands of clever fellows."
'I housands of clever fellows, fortified by Mr.
Thackeray's opinion, may think thaf they could
write the article which they read in the mor
ning journals; but let them take pen and paper
and try.
YVe think it only fair that professional authors
should have the credit of being able to do w hat
other people cannot. They do not claim to
themselves a monopoly of talent. They do
not think themselves capab e of conducing a
case m a court of law, as cleverly as a Queen's
Counsel, or ot getting a sick man through the
typhus fever as skiltullv a-a practise i physi
cian. But it is hard that they should not re
ceive credit for being able to write better arti
cles than either the one or the other; or, perhaps
it is more to the purpose to say than the brief
less lawyers and patientless medical students
who were glad to earn a guinea by the^r pens.
Men are not horn article-* rileis any more than
they are born doctors of law, or doctors of phy
sic, as the ludicrous failures, which are every
day thrown into the rubbish-naskels cd a I our
newspaper offices, demonstrate past all contra
diction. Incoinpetency is manifested in a vari
ety ot ways; but an irrepressible tendency to
tine writing is associated with a greater num
ber of them, Give a clever young medical
student a book about aural or dental surgery
io review, and the chances arc ten to one that
the criticism will be little else than ahighHown
grandiloquent treatise on the wonders ot the
creation. A regular ‘-literary hack" will do
the thing much better.
If ttiere be any set of men—we cannot call it
a <7<m. for it is drawn from alt classes—w ho
might be supposed to possess a certain capacity
for periodical writing, it is the fraternity of
members of Parliament. They are in the habit
ot selecting given subjects for consideration—
of collecting lads and illustrations—of ar
ranging arguments—a wl of expressing then
selves after a manner. They are for the
most part men of education, of a practical
turn of mind, well acquainted with passing
events, and. in many instances, in possession
just of that kind of available talent which is
invaluable to periodical writers. But very tew
of them can write an article, either for a news
paper or a review, without inflicting immense
trouble upon the editor. Sometimes the matter
it contains will be worth the pains bestowed
upon it; but it very often happens that it is not.
It is one tiling to make a speech—another to
write an article. Pit the speech otten.no le>s
than the uiticie. requires elitoiial revision.—
The reporter i> the speaker's editor, am! a very
efficient one too. In a large number 01 ca-es
the speaker owes more to the reporter than
he would w ilhngly acknowledge. The speech
as spoken wouhl often he unreadable, but
that the reporter finishes the unfinished sen
tences, and supplies meanings which are
rather suggested tlfin expressed. It would
be easy to name members who are capable of
writing admirable articles, but :nan\ of them
owe their position in lire House to some ante
cedent connection^with the Pres-, or have be
come. in some meaner, k*regularly connected
with the Press:” and have acquired, b\ long
practice, the capacity of article-writing. Hut
take any half-dozen* members indiscriminate!)
out of the House, and set them down to write
articles on any subject which they may have
just heard debated and see how grohsque uj-|
be their efforts! They mav he very “clever fel
lows," but that they can write articles as well
as men whose profession it is to write them, we
take upon ourselves emphatically to denv.
