Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Jones, Horatio Gates 1822- (search)
Jones, Horatio Gates 1822- Lawyer; born in Philadelphia, Pa., Jan. 9, 1822; graduated at the University of Pennsylvania in 1841; was admitted to the bar in 1847; became connected with many historical societies. His publications include History of Roxborough and Manayunk; Report of the committee of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania on the Bradford Bicentenary; Andrew Bradford, founder of the newspaper press in the Middle States of America, etc.
ted States a newspaper was attempted as early as 1690. The first number was dated September 25 of that year, but its farther issue was prevented by the colonial government, it being published contrary to law, and containing reflections of a very high nature. In 1704 the Boston News-letter, published by authority, was established by John Campbell, and in 1719 the Boston gazette, also by authority. To these succeeded the New England Courant, by James Franklin, a brother of the Doctor. Andrew Bradford founded a paper at Philadelphia in 1719, and his father, William Bradford, issued the first newspaper published in New York, the New York gazette, in 1725. From this period they multiplied rapidly in the Colonies. The common name Gazette is derived from the name of a Venetian coin, worth about a cent and a half, and which was the price of the Venetian newspaper first published. The Maryland gazette was established in 1727 or 1728; the Virginia gazette, 1736; the Rhode Island gaz

a, shortly before 1730, the town boasted two wretched little news sheets, Andrew Bradford's American Mercury, and Keimer's Universal Instructor in all Arts and scieo his own uses. The series of essays called The busy-body, which he wrote for Bradford's American Mercury in 1729, followed the general Addisonian form, modified alrng office. There was nothing unusual in this fact, by itself. His rival, Andrew Bradford, and many other printers in the colonies had odd collections for sale. But while Bradford was advertising the Catechistical guide to sinners, or The plain man's path-way to Heaven, along with an occasional Spectator, Franklin's importationution. Franklin, as usual, led the way, though it happened that his rival Andrew Bradford actually published the first magazine in the colonies. Franklin's soon foever he could get them. Both magazines were evidently premature, however, for Bradford's existed only three months, and Franklin's only six. The next attempt at t

the circulation of their publications, in that the population they supplied was much less homogeneous. As early as 1708, at least, a Dutch book, Falckner's Grondlycke Onderricht, had appeared in New York. Yet while thirty Dutch publications were issued between 1730 and 1764, the influence of that language as a publishing medium was practically dead by 1800, although it was revived much later at Grand Rapids, Michigan. With the German language, however, the case was far different. Andrew Bradford printed Conrad Beissel's Das Buchlein vom Sabbath in 1728, ushering in German printing in this country. In 1738 Christopher Saur or Sower established at Germantown what is the oldest extant publishing firm in the United States. Sower won his place in publishing annals by his three editions of the Bible, in 1743, 1762, and 1776. Not until 1782 was our first Bible in English published, by Robert Aitken at Philadelphia. But even more remarkable than Sower's editions of the Bible was th
