Ship news editor.
The Telegraphic Bureau (also in common with the Associated Press) employs one general agent and two subordinates, (one at Liverpool and one at Halifax,) and fifty reporters in various parts of the country.
The number of regular and paid correspondents is thirty-eight—eighteen foreign, twenty home.
The remainin, they seem wonderful no longer.
We glance up and down the columns of telegraphic intelligence, and read without the slightest emotion, dispatches from Michigan, Halifax, Washington, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Boston, Cleveland, St. Louis, New Orleans, and a dozen places nearer the city, some of which give us news of events that had nles of wire, and its transmission, at the published rates, must have cost between two and three hundred dollars. On one occasion, recently, the steamer arrived at Halifax at half-past 11 in the evening, and the substance of her news was contained in the New York papers the next morning, and probably in the papers of New Orleans.
