Effect of the war on newspapers.
(Clarke co., Va.
The war has operated hard upon newspapers, particularly in this section.
In the counties of Clarke
, Page, Warren
, and Loudoun
, there were published, before the war, twenty-three
newspapers Now we know of but seven
that are published in those counties, only three of which are published regularly every week, and all, with one exception.
considerably reduced in dimensions.
Those entirely discontinued, are the Berryville Journal,
Charlestown Spirit of Jefferson
and Independent Democrat,
, Martinsburg American, Berkeley-Springs Constitution,
and Argus, Piedmont Independent, Woodstock Tenth Region, Luray Review, Front-Royal Gazettes, Harrisonburg Citizen,
, and Leesburg Mirror
, The balance are published occasionally.
We are happy to know that the Consecrator
has never missed a week since its first issue, and that we have paper enough on hand to last some months to come.
