Effect of the war on newspapers.

--The Berryville (Clarke co., Va.) Conservator says:

The war has operated hard upon newspapers, particularly in this section. In the counties of Clarke, Frederick. Jefferson, Berkeley, Morgan, Hampshire, Shenandoah, Page, Warren, Rockingham, Augusta, 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, Shepherdstown Register, Martinsburg American, Berkeley-Springs Constitution, Romney Intelligencer and Argus, Piedmont Independent, Woodstock Tenth Region, Luray Review, Front-Royal Gazettes, Harrisonburg Citizen, Staunton Vindicator, 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.
