A aracy booksellar, named John Danton, pub-
lishad tha Athaaian Mercury: bat the Athenian
Mafonry macaly disoasaed questions of natural
philosophy, of oaiaistry and of gallantry. A Fel
low of the Boyal Sodaty, named Jahn Houghton,
?ablishad what ha oalM a Collection for the
mprovamant of Indottry and Trade. But his
oolleotion contained little more than the prices oi
stooks, explanations of tha modes of doing basi-

If aTor he printed any paiitLcal news, he tTan-

priataa, saoh 1«M thau one to aaoh parish in
the Ufo^om. In troth a person who had stud
ied tha nistory of his own time only in the Ga-

of tha highest importance. Ha woald, for ex
ample, Iato known nothing abaut tha Court

ral Latter, or tha •impeaeameat of tha Dnke cf
Leeds. But the defioienoies of the Gaaslte were
to a oartain extent supplied in Loadoo by the
coffee hoasaa,’and in tha ooantry by the news
On the third of May, 1695, the law whioh had
sabjeotad the press to a aensorahip ezpifed.
Within a fortnight, a staunch old Whig, named
Harris, who had, in the days of the Exclusion
Bill, attampted to set ap a newsjMper entitled
Intalligenoa Domestio and Foreign, and who
had been speedily foraed to relinquish that de
sign, announced that the Intelligenae Domestio
and Foreign, suppressed fourteen yeara befor>
by tyranny, would a^in appear. Ten dajrs after
the first Buoiber of the Intelligence Domestio
and Foreign was printed the first number of the
English Ooarant. Then aame the Packet Boat
from Holland and Flanders, the Pegasus, the
London Newsletter, the London Poet, tiie Flying
Post, tho Old Postmaster, the Postboy, and the
Postman. *Tha history of tha newcpapers of
England from that time to the pressnt day is a
most interesting and instractive part of the his
tory of the ooantry. At first they were small
and meanlooking Even the Postboy and the
Postman, whioh seem to have bden the best oon
daoted and the most prosperous, were wretohedly
printed on scraps of dingy paper such aa would
not now be thooght good enough for strtat bal
lads. Only two numbers came out ia a week,
and a number contained little mare matter than
may ba fouod in a single oolumn of a daily paper
of our time. What i^ maw called a leading ar-
tiale seldom apptartd, except when there was a
seartit/ of intelligence, whan the Dutch mails
were detained by the west wind, when the Kap-
p«r««s ware quiet in the Bog of Allen, when no
staga aottah had bean stopped by highwaysaens
when no noojuring congregation had beta dis
parsed by eonstables, wken no ambassador had
made his entry with a bag train of co%ehe6 and
six, when no lord or poet had been buried in the
Abbey, and when oonsequeatly it was difficult to
fill up four scanty pages. Tet the leading arti
cles, though inserted, as it should seem, anly in
tha absccoe of more ab'.raetivo matter, arc by
no means contemptibly written
' It is a remarkable tact that tha in^t news
papers were all on the side of King William and
tha Revolution- Thia faet may be partly ex
plained by the eiroumstaoce that the editors
wert, at first, on their good behaviour. It was by
no means clear that their trade was not in itsclt
illegal The printing of newspapers was certain
ly not prohibitad by any statute. But, towards
the olosd of the reign of Charles the Second, the
judges had pronounced that it was a misdemean
or at common law to publish political intolligeoce
without the King’s license. It is trae that the
jadges who laid down this doctrine were reVnova-
ble at the royal pleasure ^d were eager on all
occasions to exalt the royal prerogative. How
the question, if it were again raised, would be
decided by Holt and Treby was doubtful; and th^
effect of the doubt was to make the ministers of
the Crown indujgsnt and ta make t'ho journalists
cautious. On neither side was there a wish to
bring the quesiion of right to issue. The govern
ment therefore oonnived at tba publication of the
newspapers; and the eonductors of the newspapers
carefully abstained from publishing any thing that
could provoke or alarm the government. It is
true that, in one of the earliest numbers of ono
ef the new joamkls, a paragraph appeared which
seemed intended to oonvey an insinuation that
the Crincess Anne did not sincerely rejoice at
the fall of Namur. Bat the printer mado* hast«
to atone for his fault by the moat submissiva
amlogies. Daring a considerable time the an
omciatgaiettes, though much more garrulous and
amoaiilkAihan the official gaiatte, wert scarcely
Whoever examines them will find
ia always mentioned with profound
ut the debates and divisions of the
^ a revereatial silenot is preserved.
There is^ueh invective: but it is aHost all di
rected against the Jaoobites and the French. It
seems certain that tha government of William
gained not a little by tbe substitution of these
printed newspapers, oompoied ander constant
draad of the Attorney General, for the old news
letters, wMoh were written with anboanded
The pamphleteers were ander less reis&ain^ than
the journalists; yet no person who has studied
with attention the political controversies of that
timo can have fiuled to perceive that the libels
on William’s person and government were de-
eidedly less coarse and rancorous during the lat
ter half of his reign than daring the earlier
half. And the reason evidently i^ that the press,
whioh had been fettered daring the earlier half
of his reign, was free daring the latter half.
Wlole the censorship existed, no tract blaming,
eren in the most temperate and decorous language,
the conduct of any public department, waa likely
to be printed with the approbatioa of the liceaser.
To print such a tract without the approbation of
'the licenser was illegal In gene^, tharefore,
the respectable and moderate .opponents of the
Court, not being able to publish in the manner
prescribed by law, and not thinking it right or
mfe to publish in a manner prohibited by law,
held their peace, aad lefb the bosiness of eriti-
iUM ik» •dsiiwsmtiM ib mo olanea of
fknatieal nonjurors who siaoerely thoight
the Prince ef Orange was entitled to as little
tharity or courtesy as the Prince of Darkness,
and Grub Street hacks, eoarseminded, badhcarted
and foulmoutked. Thus there was foarcely a
-^iBgle man of judgment, temper, and integrity
among the many who were in the habit of writiof?
against the jiroYernmetit. Indeed the habit of
writing against the government had, of
an unfavorable efFeot on the character. For
whoever was in the habit of writtnfr agsinst
tht government was in the habit of breaking the
taw; and tho habit of breaking even an naryason-
abls Uw tends to make men altogether lawless
However absurd a tariff may be, a srouggler is
but too likely to be a knave and » ruffian
ever oppressive a game law may bi’, the tranbition
is but too easy from a poaoher to a muiderer.
And so, though little indeed oan be said in favor
of the Bta^atea which imposed restraints oa liter
ature, there was mueh risk that a man who was
oonstantly violating those statutes would not be
a man of high honor and rigid uprigfatneps- Ap
author who was’*de+ermined to print, snd oould
not obtain the sanction of the licenser, must em
ploy the services of nee(fy acd desperate outcast^),
who, hunted by the peace officers, and forced to
assume every week new aliases and new disgaisrs,
hid t^eir paper and their types in those deos of
vice which are the peat and the shame of grfa^
capUals. Sutb vrretohes as these he must bribe
to keep his secret and to run the chance of having
their Meks flayed and their ears clipped in his
^tead A man stooping to such companions and
to such expedients oould hardly retain un
impaired the delicacy of his sense of what was
right and beooming. The emancipation ol the
press produced a greal and salutary change.
The btst and wisest men in the ranks of ^e
opposition now assumed an offioe which had hith
erto been abandoned to the nnprinoipled or the
hotheaded. Tracts against the government were
written in a style not misbecoming statesmen and
gAntlemen; and even the compositions of the low
er and fiercer clasx of malcontents became
somewhat less brutal and leas ribald than ia the
days of the lictnsers.
Bome weak men had istiagined that religion and
morality stood in need ef tht proteetion the
lloensar. The event signally proved that tfiey
were in error. In truth the eansorsbip h^
scarcely put any restraint on licentieusness or
profaneness The Paradise ho»t Bad narrowly
escaped mutilation: for the Paradise Lost was the
work of a man whose polidcs wert hateful to
the ruling powers But Etherege’s She Would
If She Could, Wycherley’s Country Wife, Dry-
den's Translations from the Fourth Book of Lu
cretius, obteiatd the Imprimatur withoat diift-
culty: for Dryden, Echerege and Wycherley were
courtiers. Frtm the day on whioh the emancipa
tion of our litaraturt was atoomplished, tht puri
fication of Aur literature b«gan. That purifica
tion was effptted, not by the interventiAn of 8> d-
aies or magistrates, but by the opi^iion of the gr.at
body of eduoated Eaglishmen, beibre whom good
an^ evil wert set, and who were I'-ft ir^o: to make,
their choice. During a hundred and sixty yoar.^
tha liberty of our press has been e^nstiintly
bteoming laort and more entire; and daring
thcs3 hondrtd and sixty years the restraint
imposed on writers by the general feeling of read
era has been oonstantly becoming more and more
strict. At length even that class of works in
which it was formerly thought that a vcluptaous
imagination waa pri^eged to disport itaelt, love
songs, comedies, novels, have beeomt mort de~
oorus than the sermons of the sevsateeath eeaturv.
At this day foreigners, who dare not print a word
