Commercial and politicai papers are bctter paid, because a subscription to thein is rcgardedstrictly as a business transactioujthe self-inlerest of subsertbers is more directly involved. Hul many subscribers to temperance and anti slavery papers seem to think it enouijh that they have shown iheir good will by subscribing - paying isanother matter - the subscription price tothem is to be given or withheld according to circumstances, not u dobt tbey are solemnly buund to discharge.
