James Parton, The life of Horace Greeley, Chapter 9: from office to office. (search)
goes the story—discharged at the end of the week. He worked, also, for a few days upon the Commercial Advertiser, as a sub, probably. Then, for two weeks and a half, upon a little paper called The Amulet, a weekly journal of literature and art. The Amulet was discontinued, and our hero had to wait ten years for his wages. His next step can be given in his own words. The following is the beginning of a paragraph in the New Yorker of March 2d, 1839: Seven years ago, on the first of January last—that being a holiday, and the writer being then a stranger with few social greetings to exchange in New York—he inquired his way into the ill-furnished, chilly, forlorn-looking attic printing-office in which William T. Porter, in company with another very young man, who soon after abandoned the enterprise, had just issued the Spirit of the Times, the first weekly journal devoted entirely to sporting intelligence ever attempted in this country. It was a moderate-sized sheet of indi<

as they were Essays upon authors, rather than Reviews of Books, she indulged sparingly in extract. Among her literary articles, we observe essays upon Milton, Shelley, Carlyle, George Sand, the countess Hahn Hahn, Sue, Balzac, Charles Wesley, Longfellow, Richter, and other magnates. She wrote, also, a few musical and dramatic critiques. Among her general contributions, were essays upon the Rights, Wrongs, and Duties of Women, a defence of the Irish character, articles upon Christmas, New year's day, French Gayety, the Poor Man, the Rich Man, What fits a man to be a Voter —genial, fresh, and suggestive essays all. Her defence of the Irish character was very touching and just. Her essay on George Sand was discriminating and courageous. She dared to speak of her as one of the best exponents of the difficulties, the errors, the weaknesses, and regenerative powers of the present epoch. Let no man, continued Miss Fuller, confound the bold unreserve of Sand with that of those who have

anoeuvring by which Congress, though it cannot legally adjourn over for more than three consecutive days, generally contrives to be idle during the whole of the Christmas holidays; i. e. from a day or two before Christmas, to a day or two after New Year's. I was warned, he wrote, when going to Baltimore last evening, that I might as well keep on to New York, as nothing would be done till some time in January. But I came back, determined to see at least how it was done. It was done by making two bites at the cherry, adjourning first from Saturday to Wednesday; and, after a little show of work on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, adjourning again till after New Year's day. Mr. Greeley spoke in opposition to the adjournment, and demanded the yeas and nays; but they were refused, and the first bite was consummated. The old soldiers of the House were too much for him, he said; but he took care to print the names of those who voted for the adjournment. Dec. 27th. To-day the pent — up ra

average of what is supposed to be earned by himself and others, as is the case where work is paid for at so much per day, week or month. I know no reason why the Iron-Molders of Cincinnati should not have been as well satisfied with the old ways as anybody else. Yet the system did not work well, even for them. Beyond the general unsteadiness of demand for Labor and the ever-increasing pressure of competition, there was a pretty steadily recurring dull season, commencing about the first of January, when the Winter's call for stoves, &c., had been supplied, and holding on for two or three months, or until the Spring business opened. In this hiatus, the prior savings of the Molder were generally consumed—sometimes less, but perhaps oftener more—so that, taking one with another, they did not lay up ten dollars per annum. By-and-by came a collision respecting wages and a strike, wherein the Journeymen tried the experiment of running their heads against a stone wall for months. How
