Why is it? Why is it that some men
will stand and chaffer and Jew a long time
about the price to be paid for a newspaper
a year, or the insertion of an advertisement,
when the same men would consider such
conduct in the last degree picayunish and
mean if they were settling a hotel bill or a
bill for any other luxury ? The difference of
half a dollar a day in hotel bills is thought
nothing of by most men ; but a difference
of 25 of 50 cents in the price of a news
paper a year induces some men to deprive
themselve of its weekly visits, and the pub

men claim to be liberal and whole souled !

Success of the Ericsson. We lake
pleasure in announcing on the authority of
one of the parties interested in the caloric
ship Ericsson, that they succeeded yesterday
in obtaining nine and ten revolutions per
minute with one only of her engines, which
has been improved in important respects
since the last experimental trip. This
secures the same number of (nine or ten)
miles per hour in motion, with only half the
the power in use. The other engine will be
got into order by the first week in April,
and about the middle of that month, it is
intended to despatch the ship to Havre,
either direct or via Liverpool. The owners
now feel assured of a success surpassing the
most sanguine expectations ever indulged by
the inventor. New York Courier & En
