[New York Herald.] The high price of paper, Dext to the high price of bread, is perhaps the burden most felt by our community. An American can just as well go without a meal as without his newspaper. Whatever tends to increase its cost and put it beyond his reach will there fore always be a subject of indignation with him. In our long experience of journalism we have never knowu any grievance which has more enlisted popular sympathy or which continues to furnish a topic of such earnest remonstrance. There is nothing to justify the exorbitant prices maintained by the American manufac turers. The rise in the price of rags has been seized upon as the pretext for them. Making all due allowance for this, it does not afford any reasonable ground for the rates charged. Even if the manufacturers had no other stock to work upon than rags, they are out of all proportion. But when it is known that in the sedges, reeds and coarse grass, covering thousands of acres in the immediate vicinity of New York, there is to be found a most ex cellent paper stock which cau be made ready for use within forty-eight hours, at the small cost of three cents a pound, the prices exacted become still more inexcusable. We have seen specimens of this stock made simply by the use of a pestle and mortar, and can pronounce it as good as any that we have examined. Let us add that a still further economy is effected in its use by the fact that beforethe manufacturer can turn bis rags into paper they undergo a loss of at least thirty five per cent, or one third, in the process of conversion. This makes the cost of his stock fifteen cents per pound, or equal to five times the cost of the material to which we refer. The American manufacturers will not even experiment with this or other substitutes for the stock which they use, because they are too well satisfied with the profits that they are making to hazard their introduction. Tue effect of this selfish and narrow minded policy is beginning to manifest itself in the intro duction ot Belgisn and other foreign papers. There can be no greater proof at once of the blindness of our paper makers and of the fol ly of the protective system than the fact that, in spite of the high duties charged on it, for naper is competing successfully with >me8tic article. Most of the book pub lishers and several of the leading newspapers are now beginning to use it. Unless, there fore, a material reduction in price is made by the American manufacturers, it is clear that they will soon be driven out of their own market. Chances of Life. An old document contains some interesting information unknown to many, and rarely encountered in the papers. Among other things, it contains a table exhibiting an aver age age attained by persons employed in the various popular professions of the day. In this particulai. as in most others, the farmers have advantage over the rest of mankind, as their average is sixty-five. Mext upon the docket tome the judges and justices of peace, the diguity of whose lives is lengthened to sixty-four. Following then, immdiately in the category of longevity, is the bank officer who sums up his account at the age of sixty four. Public officers cling to their existence with as much pertinacity as they retain their offices—they never resign their offices but life forsakes them at fifty-six. Coopers, although they seem to stave through life, hang ou un til they are fifty-eight. The good work of the clergymen follow them at fifty-five. Shipwrights, hatters, and lawyers, and rope makers (some very appropriately) go together at the age of fifty-four. The “Village Blacksmith,” like most of his cotemporaries, dies at fifty-one. Butch ers follow tbeir bloody career for precisely half a century. Carpenters are brought to the scaffold at forty-nine. Masous realize their cry of “Mort!" at the age of forty-sev en.—Traders cease their speculations at for ty-six. Jewelers are disgusted with the tin sel of life at forty-four. Babers, manufactu rers, and various mechanics die at forty-three. The painters yield to their colic at forty-two. Thehrittle thread of the tailor's life is broken at forty-oue. Editors, like all other beings who come under the special admiration of the gods, die comparitively young—they accom plish their errand of mercy at forty. The musi cian redeems his last note and plays his dy ing fall at thirty-nine. The professional dancer shuffles off his mortal coil at thir ty-nine. Printers become dead matter at thirty-eight. The machinist is usually blown qp at thirty-six, The teachers usual ly dismiss their scholars at the age of thirty four, and the clerk is even shorter lived, for he must needs prepare his balance sheet at thirty-three. No account is given of the av erage longevity of wealthy uncles. The inference is fair, therefore, they are immortal, BAGGING AND KOBE.
