What Is au Editor?
Some one answers this question thus : -i Why
be in the man who reads the, newpaprs writes
articles on any subject, talks to all who callus
blamed for a hundred things which is nobody's
business but his own, helps people to get into
office (who forget all about it afterward?,) and
frequently gets cheated out of half hi earnings.
He works and does more to build up a town
than any other body, and the fogies are benefited
thereby ; yet they will aay that the editor's p
ier is one"of no account, will not advertise or
taie the paper, but will borrow it. Who
wouldn't fct an editor. j

The Christian I'nion.
The Christian Union, only ono year old, has
attained to a circulation surpassed by only one
religious paper in the country. Its success is in
the main due to the great ability and recognized
popularity of its editor, Rev. Henry Ward
Beecher. The Xation, of New York, probably
the moit critical and hard-to-plcase journal in
the country, and a high literary authority, says
it is "not only the ablest and best, but, also, as
we suppose, the moet popular of American re
ligious periodicals. At all events, it it cafe to
predict that it will soon have, if it has not al
ready, greater influence than any other relig
ious paper in the country." It is well filled
with choice reading matter. For the year 1871,
one of its chief attractions is Mrs. Harriet
Beecher Stowe's new story, "My Wife and I "
one of her best. This was commenced last
November, but the publishers ofler to send all
the back numbers containing it to every sub
