ion can Mr. Van Buren offer to the people of the United States for having brought upon them all their present difficulties? was the language of a remonstrance drawn up by a committee of New York city merchants, in April, 1837. In the following November the Whigs (in an off-year ) carried New York city for the first time, as well as county after county in the State that had been considered Democratic beyond attack, and elected 100 of the 128 members of the Assembly voted for. Weed and his ahave made money for its proprietors. Even in those days advertising might have been secured. The Log Cabin in most of its numbers published less than a column of advertisements, increasing them to three and a half columns for a short time in November. The Herald in 1840 printed from ten to fifteen columns a day. The experience in trusting subscribers of the New Yorker had not been a sufficient warning, and again credit was given, to be followed by another appeal to friends who owe us, sayin

did not satisfy the demand. Later editions of 80,000 were printed, that being the limit, not of the demand, but of the editor's press-room facilities. Greeley had, when the publication of the Log Cabin was begun, taken one of his many partners in the firm of Horace Greeley & Co., which published the New Yorker, but the new partner was so alarmed by the rush of subscribers, in connection with the low subscription price, that he soon retired. An extra number of the Log Cabin was issued on November 9, giving the election returns, and a prospectus was published announcing that, yielding to urgent requests, the editor would soon begin a new series of the paper, the subscription price of which would be $1.50 per annum. The first number of this new series was dated December 5, 1840, and the last number November 20, 1841, when it was succeeded by the Weekly Tribune. With good business management, a paper with the circulation of the Log Cabin should have made money for its proprietors.

abin their character and features Greeley's industry poor business management last of the New Yorker Up in Albany another man who was at that time editing a newspaper had a fight on his hands, not so desperately against overdue notes as against a most powerful political opposition. That man was Thurlow Weed, and his opposition, known as The Albany Regency, included such leaders as Martin Van Buren, William L. Marcy, and Silas Wright. Weed had founded the Albany Evening Journal in March, 1830, and for several years had not only written all its editorial articles, but had reported the legislative proceedings, selected the miscellany, collected the local news, read the proofs, and sometimes made up the forms for the press. His fight in the first presidential campaign after his paper was founded (in 1832) ended in the loss of the State and the nation by his candidate, Henry Clay, and Marcy defeated Seward for Governor the year following.

But the Whigs were now to have as an ally te Harrison, and again on the Taylor ticket, but in vain; if Webster had followed this advice, his ambition to be President would have been gratified. Weed personally favored a United States Bank, but he would not print in the Evening Journal, in 1836, Webster's speech at a Whig mass meeting, in Boston, in support of the bank scheme, and against Jackson's veto, saying that two sentences in the veto message would carry ten votes against the bank to one gained for it by Webster's eloquence-viz.,

fortunes of parties and candidates the history of the United States has proved in later years. On President Van Buren was laid the responsibility for the long list of business failures, the monetary evils, and the commercial stagnation. What constitutional or legal justification can Mr. Van Buren offer to the people of the United States for having brought upon them all their present difficulties? was the language of a remonstrance drawn up by a committee of New York city merchants, in April, 1837. In the following November the Whigs (in an off-year ) carried New York city for the first time, as well as county after county in the State that had been considered Democratic beyond attack, and elected 100 of the 128 members of the Assembly voted for.

Weed and his associates in the Whig party leadership saw in this change of public feeling hope of electing a Whig Governor in New York in 1838, as well as a Whig President in 1840, and they looked on a cheap weekly newspaper, which would vigorously espouse their cause and keep the voters informed and stire last and only barrier between Freedom and Despotism.

editorial contributions to, and for a time the practical supervision of, the Daily Whig, a short-lived journal, he received a salary of $12 a week. Greeley, in a letter to R. W. Griswold dated March 18, 1839, said: I think better of my new pet, the Whig. I write the editorial for that, and edit it generally. Don't you think it better than formerly? If not, it's wretched bad, that's a fact. It is rather gaining in patronage. The first number of the Jeffersonian was issued on February 17, 1838, with Horace Greeley's name as editor under the title. Its prospectus announced its purpose to be to supply a notorious and vital deficiency-to furnish counties and neighborhoods not otherwise provided with correct and reliable information upon political subjects, at a price within the reach of all (six subscriptions for $3). It was not to be a mere party organ, but would print the views of public men on both sides. The Jeffersonian was an eight-page quarto, containing usually a pag

Clay received early assurance that Weed was warmly and zealously in favor of his election, and Shepard, in his Martin Van Buren, says that the slaughter of Henryn of the publication was announced in the issue of February 9, 1839. In the next two years the Whig cause did not flourish, almost all the States which voted in 1839 showing a return to the Democrats, New York remaining Whig by a reduced majority. Harrison received the nomination for President in the first Whig National Convention, in 1839, and one of the most exciting campaigns in the history of the country followed. Give Harrison a log cabin and a barrel of hard cider, and he will stay contented in Ohio, and not aspire to the presidency, was the unfortunate sneer of a Democratic editor.
