rijtingrniiked Editors of Hewtpapers
Published in Salisbury Since 1820.
We have ho account, v r'al or written ,
of any newspaper editor in Salisbury
prior to 1820, who made any reputation
as such. Indeed, we are not aware that
any newspaper, in the ordinary sense of
the word, waipublishe here before that
year. Messis. Coopee & Krider had a
printing office here and issued a monthly
magazine (name not remembered), de
voted to miscellaneous matter and the
publication of most notable. events in the
State and country; but it was not a
newspaper" in common parlance. But
before them, just how long before we
have no means of knowing, " a lame
German, named Sloomp," had a printing
office on the secoud floor of the house
now occupied by Mr. John Buis, where
he did variousjob printing, court blanks,
circulars and perhaps pamphlets. But
the newspaper business proper, in this
town, may be said to date from 1S20, at
which time two young practical printers,
Philo White, of New York, and Lemuel
Biuaham, of Massachusetts, came here
and bought out Messrs. Coopee & Krider,
and established the " Western Carolin
ian "the first newspaperever published
in this State west of Hillsboro. They
were men above the ordinary grade of
printers even in their day, aud the paper
established by them soon became popu
lar, and drew a liberal support not only
from counties west, but from all parts of
the State. But this firm did not continue
exceeding three years. Mr. Bingham
drew out and removed to Fay'etteville.
MR. PHILO WHITE
continued the publication of the paper
until 18307 at which time he-received the
appointment of Purser on board some
government vessel, and sailed for Chili,
South America. His career as an editor
was characterized by good cenmon sense,
and his quick perception of what it was
proper to say, and how to say it in the
fewest words possible, lie was eminent
ly practical and seldom indulged in at
tempts at wit. He was a decided suc
cess, and relinquished a business that was
paying him handsomely, to enter govern
WM. JEFKERSOX JOXEri & BURTON" CRAIGE
were his successors. Mr. Craige was a
a native of Rowan, and is well remem
bered by many of the older people of the
county. Jones was a ruff led -shirt band
box young lawyer from Virginia starchy
in style, but not well iuaccord with the
plain people of this section. A very good
essayist, aud in some places might have
been popular. But he withdrew. from the
Western Carolinian in about a year, and
went southwest was editor on a daily
in Mobile, Ala., in 1837. Mr. Craige be
came sole editor of the Carolinian, hich
position he held until May or June, 1833.
The great question of Stales' Bights
came up in 1832, and the violent asser
tion of the riirhts of nullification and se-
which threw upon Mr. Fisher, fresh from
schools, the responsibility of the position.
It is not enough to say that he acquitted
him-.'lt" wdl through two political cam
paigns, and certainly roeritedi success.
But he ret i ret 1 from it at last in disgust,
partly, it may be, at the work itself $ but
more, because it was a continual drain
upon resources not derived frora his
arduous labors. The Western Carolinian
reached a permanent suspension under
Ids hand in 1S43 or '43.
The writer cannot undertake to say
when Mr. Bingham sold out his paper,
"The Yadkin and Catawba Journal," to
a young man named Hugh Welsh, of
Davie county, aud in whose hands it ex
pi red in 1834.
TO BE CONTINUED, j
cession by South Carolina fired the whole
country, but more especially the South.
The crreat speech of Daniel Webster!
against the right, and Mr. Calhoun's
ovenvheling reply in its favor, were the
exciting themes in every gathering of Un
people. Mr. Craige supported the south
ern view of the subject, and of course
took sides with Mr. Calhoun, the great
southern champion. The ability and
zeal displayed by him on this subject
alarmed the Union men of the State ; and
although they had an able newspaper
advocate of their cause in Mr. Lemuel
Bingham (who had returned to this place
in 1828, tq, combat the Jackson ism of the
campaign of that year), yet they succeed
ed in establishing another, the Carolina
Watchman," in 1832, under the manage-I

These were hot times in this parts of the
State, and the fiery zeal of these two
journals, edited by young and impetuous
men, fresh from college, contributed very
largely to keep it up to fever heat. Mr.
Jones had a rather brilliant editorial ca
reer of seven years : and although his pa
per had acquired a high stand for its
learning, sound sense, mature judgment,
political integrity and good humor, yen
it passed from him under a burden o

did not suit him to contend.
